New Release for Students Who Want to Score Highly on the SAT, and Tutors and Teachers Who Help Students Prepare for the SAT – Book by Blackstone Review

Ace the SAT writing section with this comprehensive guide to the rules of good writing tested on the SAT. This innovative study guide is based on a simple principle:

If you know the rules, you can ace the test.  You just have to know the rules.

Blackstone Review identifies and explains the rules of good writing tested on the SAT and pinpoints the various tricks and sentence patterns that SAT question writers use to test these rules. Chapters cover frequently tested grammar mistakes such as lack of subject-verb agreement, misuse of pronouns, errors in verb tense, misplaced modifiers, illogical comparisons, faulty parallelism, and improper idiom. Also included is a chapter offering straightforward, practical advice on how to write a high-scoring essay.

Maximize Your SAT Writing Score, published by Dog Ear Publishing, is designed to help high school students of all skill levels and experience. The book explains each grammar rule simply and concisely, and uses examples and sample SAT questions to illustrate how each rule is tested. The book also gives each rule a priority rating of one to three stars based on how frequently that rule is tested. These ratings ensure that students master the essential rules first and allocate their study time wisely and efficiently.

Other special features include a Super-Quick Study Guide that summarizes the most frequently tested rules and a condensed Study Outline that lists all the rules, with examples. Students can measure their understanding of the material by taking short review quizzes at the end of each chapter and practice questions at the end of the book. This SAT study guide is a valuable resource for any college-bound student who wants an advantage on the SAT and any teacher or tutor who helps students prepare for the SAT.

New Romantic Thriller Explores Life’s Darkest Passions – Book by Joan Nelson

Love hits charismatic surgeon Robert Geller like a hurricane, sweeping him into a vortex of desire, passion and intrigue. Robert is an ambitious charmer, living a life of privilege with his cardiothoracic practice and a residence in an exclusive New Jersey enclave. But despite his apparent success, he’s trapped in a loveless marriage to an emotionally unstable wife and contending with a ruthless and tyrannical father-in-law.

With divorce out of the question, Robert defiantly pursues an affair with Jennifer, an alluring and vibrant jewelry designer. Jennifer is an intelligent beauty with inner strength, and her refined yet earthy sensuality draws Robert like a moth to a flame. What begins as an escape from the confines of his oppressively dull marriage changes in ways he never anticipated; love and emotional intimacy weave themselves into their erotic sexual encounters.

Final Exit, published by Dog Ear Publishing, is a seductive and mesmerizing tale of a man’s obsession to be with the woman he loves. The story reveals the ecstasy and agony of passion and betrayal, and examines the extreme measures people will take to get what they want, and the violent acts they will commit to hold on to what they have.

This is a debut novel for author Joan Nelson Eisen, an award-winning sculptor who began her creative journey as a fashion designer and later became a successful interior designer. Joan paints pictures with words and was inspired to write a novel using the same heart and inspiration she brings to her art and design work.

New Release Tells Tales of Mining Expert’s Real-life Treasure Hunts – Book by Paul L. Jones

Life’s rarely been boring for Paul Jones, who spent three years in the Army before beginning a career that would cause him to travel two million miles in the United States and a dozen foreign countries. He earned a degree in mining engineering from the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology and spent 50 years exploring and managing mines. These true adventure anecdotes include encounters of flooding and collapsed mines, uninhabited islands, storms at sea, Arctic survival, protecting gold and explosives from terrorists, and escaping armed men.

The Pursuit and Capture of Hidden Treasure, published by Dog Ear Publishing, tells the author’s story from the beginning, when he moved around a lot as a child and even then showed a sense of daring. Readers will be drawn in by the detailed descriptions of life in the Army in Alaska and the author’s underground mine experiences. The author’s sense of humor shines through, such as his story of helping a friend in a remote area kill a goat for food, only to have the friend change his mind and ask Jones to help him bury it. This adventurous memoir gives mining enthusiasts a behind-the-scenes look at the rewards and dangers of belowground hunts for treasure that take place all over the world.

Author Paul Jones, a registered professional geologist, developed and sold an exploration tool used all over the world that detects mines, including a multibillion dollar treasure trove of gold, silver, zinc and lead in Montana. He has worked on drilling and mine management projects across the globe. His aunt and grandmother inspired Jones’ interest in mining and its vital role to modern society.

New Release Offers a Unique and Intriguing Look at Holocaust Survival – Book by Joseph Leary

KLARA begins and ends in Chicago, which is a little unusual for a Holocaust story.  Chicago is normally known for its waterfront, its majestic structures and its sports teams.  But the real Chicago happens in the ethnic neighborhoods, where often people from a variety of nations have come to seek refuge and forget the past. This story is, in large part, about one of those neighborhoods – Ukrainian Village.  In 1977, Chicago and the Village were a bit dimmer, a bit more haunting, and just a bit closer to the horrors of Europe during World War II.

KLARA, published by Dog Ear Publishing, is a story of hope, but a frayed and sober hope, sprouting from the worst of tragedy.  The hopeful sprouts that emerge have come at a terrible price.  The novel reveals this in layers, for it cannot be digested all at once.  That would be too much, almost too much to be credible.  But the events that underpin this story did happen in Poland during the War, and the rot and odor of these things lingered in Ukrainian Village many years later.  Suppressed or denied by normal enough people, folks who refused to claim their own memories.  These memories were better off left alone.

But great crimes can never be left alone forever.  Someone always speaks up.  One thing leads to another, as it does in this story.  Many films and novels about the Holocaust shine bright lights on heroic victims and cruel villains.  There are some of these here, but there is much more here, in this gripping story.  For in truth, most who lived in Poland in 1944 were somewhere in the grey middle, neither heroic nor cruel.  They were just tested too harshly, and could not bear it.

KLARA  is their story.

Author Challenges Others to Make Leap of Faith in New Spiritual Release – Book By Sherri Lane

The author has a simple message, calling for all Christians to dare to be more like Jesus: to stop judging others and to start living a life of love. Christians, whether practicing their faith or not, should release God from the restrictions or preconceived notions of what He is and can do for them. Although making a leap of faith is not easy, the rewards make it worth the effort. Someday, the author writes, we will be enlightened beyond imagining, and we should be ready to make the jump to paradise.

Setting God Free, published by Dog Ear Publishing, asks believers to consider the idea that Jesus return “might be through our open hearts and minds, rather than in an incarnation as a single human.” Simple experiences can be profound, forever altering how people view the world around them and live their lives. Seeing God’s work in a beautiful flower, marveling in a new baby’s birth or reveling in a patient’s miraculous cure all have merit. Simply changing how people think of God in their life provides a ripple effect in the world. As the author writes, “Today is the day that you change your life by shifting your thoughts to a more loving place. Today is the day that you change the world through the process of changing yourself.”

Author Sherri Lane’s own powerful spiritual experiences have inspired her to share her enlightenment with others, helping them walk the path to faith. For several years, Lane has shared these experiences on her blog, “Seeing Miracles Every Day,” found at www.seeingmiracleseveryday.blogspot.com. She hosts a Facebook fan page with the same title that explores miracles and focusing on love as a means to return to God.

New Release Puts Family’s Memoirs on Center Stage – Book by Mary Ellen Stelling & Peter James Stelling

Lenore de Quincy, born into privilege, has a rebellious spirit but bows to her father’s wishes, attending a girls’ school and marrying the man he chooses for her. Everything changes when, on the verge of death, he gives her the key to a bank box filled with cash. Now she’s free to leave her marriage and the “one-horse town” where she lived and take her daughter, Angela, to Manhattan, embracing life to the fullest and chasing impractical dreams.

A Place To Call Home, published by Dog Ear Publishing, which tells the story of two wealthy families linked by an arranged marriage, is set against the backdrop of history: World War I, the Roaring Twenties and the Great Depression. Readers will see the story through Angela’s eyes as she struggles with the reality of life after her parents’ divorce, a shocking act in the 1920s. Humorous anecdotes about growing up in New York City and during summer visits with her father’s family in a coal town in Pennsylvania bring the story to life with rich details. The storytellers’ easy style makes the pages fly by.

Mary Ellen Stelling was a feature columnist for the women’s page of the Atlanta Constitution for five years and belonged to the Georgia Poetry Society and the Poetry Society of Texas. Her work appeared extensively in poetry journals and newspapers across the country in the 1950s and ‘60s. A document she wrote in the 1950s portraying her childhood inspired this book. She died in 1998 when she was 82.

Her son, Peter James Stelling, spent four years in advertising in New York before returning to Atlanta to work for the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and later in the Group Travel Industry. Among his most memorable work experiences is time spent as road manager for a traveling symphony orchestra during the early years of Robert Shaw’s term as their Music Director.
