Girl Unbroken Book Description :

In the highly anticipated sequel to her New York Times bestseller Etched in Sand, Regina Calcaterra pairs with her youngest sister Rosie to tell Rosie’s harrowing, yet ultimately triumphant, story of childhood abuse and survival. They were five kids with five different fathers and an alcoholic mother who left them to fend for themselves for weeks at a time. Yet through it all they had each other. Rosie, the youngest, is fawned over and shielded by her older sister, Regina. Their mother, Cookie, blows in and out of their lives “like a hurricane, blind and uncaring to everything in her path.” But when Regina discloses the truth about her abusive mother to her social worker, she is separated from her younger siblings Norman and Rosie. And as Rosie discovers after Cookie kidnaps her from foster care, the one thing worse than being abandoned by her mother is living in Cookie’s presence. Beaten physically, abused emotionally, and forced to labor at the farm where Cookie settles in Idaho, Rosie refuses to give in. Like her sister Regina, Rosie has an unfathomable strength in the face of unimaginable hardship—enough to propel her out of Idaho and out of a nightmare. Filled with maturity and grace, Rosie’s memoir continues the compelling story begun in Etched in Sand—a shocking yet profoundly moving testament to sisterhood and indomitable courage.

canvas Book Description :

"James Morehead's Canvas opens itself to the poetry of everyday life, where stanzas are etched in sand, and poems end in sunset. Combining micro-narratives of Boston bullies cornering a young boy, with minute descriptions of time in quarantine, it draws us into moving tableaus of tenacious attention to what went down, what might come up, and where we might find ourselves. These are poems to be savored, re-read, kept handy for those times when only poetry will do." ‒ W. J. T. MITCHELL, Senior Editor of Critical Inquiry and Gaylord Donnelley Distinguished Service Professor, English and Art History, University of Chicago In his debut collection, James Morehead paints powerful images of life, love, and loss through the thoughtful selection and careful placement of words. "canvas" features the extraordinary art of Kari Byron and Alla Tsank. The year 2020 and its pandemic-induced solitude inspired the poems that lead this collection. Most are autobiographical, in particular the title poem “canvas,” and collectively form a fragmented memoir of memories and melancholy. Some are fanciful, like “tethered,” inspired by a fleeting image seen while hiking the Pacific coastline. All strive to paint images in the reader’s mind through the power of poetry. “James creates an enchanting melody of poetic sound for the reader page after page. He notices life’s details with a tender yet precise eye, down to the ‘streets glistening with midnight rain’ and ‘summer bursting outwards / fierce from its slumber.’ Using this keen observation, James breaks past life’s routines to uncover gems of beauty. To read Canvas is to be transported to a world infused with meaning and memory.” - Morgan Liphart, author of Barefoot and Running

The Constitution Book Description :

Have you ever started to make a dessert only to find, somewhere in the fine print, a hidden ingredient which is not in your spice cupboard? I can't count the number of times this scenario has happened to me. I get everything ready to create something, and find another ingredient which I don't have, try to substitute, and ruin the dish. With that in mind, I created a "Thumbnail" shopping list which I guarantee has all of the ingredients you will need for the dessert you are going to make, so you can always be prepared when baking with these recipes. Another frustration I have, is being instructed to turn to another page to complete the dessert I am working on. There I am, with my fingers covered with some unknown ingredient, flipping through the cookbook, feeling like Hansel and Gretel depositing crumbs which are destined to stick to the pages being turned, instead of staying in the bowl to become part of the tasty delicacy. Hence, complete recipes! I organized everything onto one page for simplicity. You may find a filling in the filling section, but you will also find that filling on the same page when it is used in a specific dessert. With everyone being more aware of healthy eating habits, I added nutritional facts about each recipe. With this cookbook, you can still enjoy that "home cooking" and know exactly what you are adding to your diet.

Surface Smoothness Evaluation of Etched and Unaltered Sand Specimens with Mechanical Behavior Assessment Book Description :

Particle smoothness refers to the surface texture of a sand particle on a small scale. This parameter may be used in conjunction with roundness (angularity) and sphericity in describing particle shape for engineering purposes. Smoothness is challenging to measure and quantify. This note describes preliminary evaluation approaches used to compare two identically graded sand specimens; one with an unaltered, smooth surface texture, and the other chemically etched to create a rougher surface texture. Visual observation indicated that the unaltered specimens were essentially the same as the etched specimens in terms of macroscale particle shape features (i.e., roundness and sphericity). On the other hand, the particles were significantly different in terms of the surface texture and roughness, as shown by visual techniques using scanning electron microscope and optical microscopy images. A tentative, easy-to-implement, visual particle smoothness scale is offered, designed to complement the roundness and sphericity estimates and measures commonly used to describe particle shape. Next, several simple laboratory index tests are completed on the unaltered and the etched specimens to observe differences in mechanical behavior. Limit density, flow rate, and angle of repose tests are undertaken. The results of the testing indicate measurable differences in the mechanical behavior of the unaltered versus the etched specimens. This further supports the importance of particle surface texture on the mechanical behavior of poorly graded sands. Additional research is underway to more completely quantify the contribution of particle smoothness of sands with respect to the other macroscale particle shape features.

Legacy Book Description :

A collection of literary fiction short stories on the theme of legacy What will you leave behind? Long after we've left this world, our legacy remains. Or doesn't. Or remains only in the minds of those who knew us, those whose lives we've touched. Those we've written to, or about. If you had a choice, what mark would you leave? How should people remember you? Should they remember you? Fourteen authors sat down during the month of January 2015, shut out distractions of the outside world and wrote about the subject. The resulting fiction and nonfiction stories fill the pages of Legacy: An Anthology. The book includes stories from Kristopher Jansma, winner of the 2014 Sherwood Anderson Award for Fiction, New York Times best-selling author Regina Calcaterra and Canadian best-selling author Marissa Stapley among others. Within these pages, there is laughter, pride and hope. There is romance and rock and roll. Certain messages are eerie, while others bestow a sense of peace. The collection, through the discerning lens of each writer, runs the gamut of the human experience. Author proceeds benefit the charity Paws for Reading, which pairs pets with children to improve reading and communication skills. Thanks for supporting the cause! This collection of literary fiction short stories has something for everyone. Its heavy theme will ultimately leave you feeling hopeful about the future. Interview with the EditorsQ: We see some big names in Legacy: Regina Calcaterra, whose memoir Etched in Sand was a New York Times best seller; Kristopher Jansma (The Unchangeable Spots of Leopards), winner of the 2014 Sherwood Anderson Award for Fiction; Jenny Milchman (Cover of Snow), winner of the Mary Higgins Clark Award for best suspense novel of 2013-and that's just to name a few!
