But it couldn't have been him, because Eric saw the people responsible. It will only prove his guilt to most people, but he knows that the only way to prove his innocence is to take off for halfway across the country, running from a series of carefully created lies while he slowly uncovers the biggest one yet.Written with heart attack pacing and a lyrical, machine gun style, Round Full Circle is the kind of thriller, and Matt Webber the kind of writer that grabs you by the throat and shakes you from the opening pages and doesn't let you catch your breath until the final word has been read.Matt Webber lives in Colorado with his wife and son. This is his first novel.

How Not to Murder Your Husband

Author: Stephanie Calman

Publisher: Pan Macmillan


Category: Humor


View: 324

The idea for this book came when Stephanie began making a list of things that annoy her about her husband, and found how hard it was, once she had started, to stop. Here are the first Ten Things, just to give you an idea. He: (1) Leaves the bread unwrapped after making toast so it goes stale. (2) Writes illegible names and addresses on things like Christmas cards then tells her off when she try to amend them. (3) Breathes really loudly when he's asleep - 'I wasn't SNORING' - so that it's like being woken every night at 2am by Darth Vader. And not in a sexy, black cloak, galaxy ruling sort of way. (4) Says, 'I'm putting you in charge of that' as if he's doing her a favour when he wants to get out of doing something. (5) Says, 'Well, let's not make a problem out of it, shall we?' before ignoring the thing she's just told him about that's really bugging her and that she wants him to fix. (6) Doesn't fix things the minute she asks him to. (7) Manages to get the children to bed with far less yelling than she does. (8) Always sees the other side in an argument, i.e., the side that isn't hers. (10) Adores her mother. Viciously funny, touchingly honest and only too true, this is Stephanie Calman at her brilliant best.

Visualize a More Confident, Capable You To achieve, you have to believe. It's that simple. If you can picture yourself doing something difficult or challenging, you'll have a better chance of making it happen because you'll have confidence in your ability to succeed. This book offers you proven-effective skills for developing the confidence you need to turn your dreams into reality through the use of guided imagery. The guided imagery process couldn't be simpler or more powerful: you develop a rich picture in your mind of whatever it is that you want to happen. Research suggests that visualization stimulates the brain in many of the same ways as actual experience. When you visualize, you prepare yourself to experience your goal, developing self-confidence and conviction as you go. You'll gain renewed optimism, learn anti-worry strategies, and use your imagination to foster the calm and poise you need to feel confident, competent, and assured. The mind-body techniques in the book include guided imagery, meditation, creative visualization, and personal rituals and exercises.
