Salvation: Surviving The Zombie Apocalypse
Joshua Jared Scott - 2014
When the change struck, a quarter of the world’s population simultaneously, and without warning, perished. Seven minutes later the corpses reanimated and promptly began to attack the living. At zero hour well over one billion zombies walked the Earth. A day later, more than half the world’s population had turned. Escaping the city, Jacob Thornton and a group of survivors began work on a settlement deep in the wilderness where they hoped to rebuild their shattered lives. Isolated and far from the chaos, it seemed they were indeed safe, that is, until the raiders appeared. Forced to flee, Jacob led his people north to the Black Hills. They built fortifications, gathered supplies, and waited for the inevitable. It did not come. Time passed. Homes were constructed, crops planted, and contact made with others around the globe. So few remained, but efforts were underway to rid the world of zombies. There was a very real chance civilization would bloom once more. Then the enemy returned, determined to complete the genocide they began two years earlier.

The Click: How I Lost 90 Pounds & Finally Found Fitness ... After 60
Sharon Odom - 2018
The last time I'd weighed that much was 1997, when I was pregnant with triplets! The previous year had been a tough one. My beloved Mother died on January 15, 2015. Still reeling from my recent divorce and raising 3 teenagers, I sank into a deep depression. Already over 200 pounds, I gained even more weight that year. On the one year anniversary of Mom's death, as we gathered around her grave, something clicked. I knew it was time. I had to lose the weight for good. After a lifetime of yo-yo dieting, I knew better than to follow any diet or deprive myself. I had to find a way of eating that I could sustain ... for life. This is my story, how I was able to lose 90 pounds and achieve a normal weight … at age 61. I did it by following a few simple rules, while enjoying all my favorite foods and walking daily at my treadmill desk. I wrote this memoir for several reasons. To provide inspiration, motivation and hope for people in their 50s, 60s and beyond who struggle with obesity. To encourage others to create their own customized eating and exercise plan – a sustainable lifestyle. And finally, to hold myself accountable for keeping the weight off. You CAN lose weight and keep it off, at any age. If I can do it, anyone can. - Sharon Odom
Eagle and Wyvern
R.W. Peake - 2020
King Alfred has been forced to flee from his winter court in Cippinhamm by Guthrum, self-styled King of the Danelaw and East Anglia, part of the great invasion force by the horde that will become known as the Vikings. Driven into the swamps of Somersetshire, Alfred spends a miserable winter at Athelney before finally feeling that the time is right to call the fyrd, the Saxon call to arms summoning the men of Westseaxe to rally to their King to drive the Danish invaders from their lands. Answering that call is young Titus of Cissanbyrig, a youth with an unusual name to go along with his unusual size and strength. Despite only being fourteen and that his village is under the control of Wulfhere, Ealdorman of Wiltshire who has sided with Guthrum, Titus decides to leave the only home he’s ever known, joining the call issued by the Lord of Wilton more than a dozen miles away, one of the nobles of Wiltshire who has remained faithful to the King. What drives Titus from his home is the enmity of his father, who blames him for Titus’ mother’s death in childbirth because of his size, but while he will never know it, the truth is more complex. Ultimately what sends young Titus on his first steps towards his destiny is his deep-seated, insistent belief that he’s not meant for a life behind the plow but for the sword, a conviction that has been passed to him across almost a millennium of time and distance, to a dusty Roman province in Spain, passed down by the man who was the first of his line, Titus Pomponius Pullus, Centurion of Rome. The Titus Chronicles-Eagle and Wyvern is the first of a new series by the author of the international bestselling Marching With Caesar series.
