Until she meets Nicky, heir to the Russian throne, who sweeps her off to his homeland where life will never be the same again. And then there is Willy, destined to be the future Kaiser of Germany. Suffering from a birth defect, he’s always kept his true feelings locked away and all the world sees is the bombastic persona he projects.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A book that became an instant classic when it first appeared in 1995, Old Southern Apples is an indispensable reference for fruit lovers everywhere, especially those who live in the southern United States. Out of print for several years, this newly revised and expanded edition now features descriptions of some 1,800 apple varieties that either originated in the South or were widely grown there before 1928. Author Lee Calhoun is one of the foremost figures in apple conservation in America. This masterwork reflects his knowledge and personal experience over more than thirty years, as he sought out and grew hundreds of classic apples, including both legendary varieties (like Nickajack and Magnum Bonum) and little-known ones (like Buff and Cullasaga). Representing our common orchard heritage, many of these apples are today at risk of disappearing from our national table. Illustrated with more than 120 color images of classic apples from the National Agricultural Library’s collection of watercolor paintings, Old Southern Apples is a fascinating and beautiful reference and gift book. In addition to A-to-Z descriptions of apple varieties, both extant and extinct, Calhoun provides a brief history of apple culture in the South, and includes practical information on growing apples and on their traditional uses.

Book excerpt: What happens when you take an almost-famous D&D dungeon master with a history of headlining major music festivals and breathing fire in the circus and send him to a mountain in China to sit alone with his own thoughts? A new epic solarpunk fantasy novel, somewhere between a 'Chinese Rock 'N Roll Harry Potter' and a 'Darker Alice in Wonderland.' Finding time can be difficult in today's hypermodern world. Making time, however, can be magick. In 2038, in the SOLARPUNK futuristic city of Chongqing, a dangerous story gets told that threatens our entire multiverse. The world's spiciest ice cream, a trip to Chongqing's rural countryside, & a strange collection of curious belongings begin this unforgettable tale that mixes Solar Punk science fiction and high fantasy for a thrilling modern fairytale about a boy who risks his soul to chase a 9-tail fox into the dreamlands for the adventure of a lifetime and the chance to save his family. "Amos the Amazing is different from the stories I have seen before. It makes me feel the unique charm of a new narrative story that blends Eastern and Western cultures in a mysterious world of whimsy full of wild imagination and unforgettable characters, and I believe that children will love it." - 停云 Xiao Hua Hua, Senior MG/YA Editor, Chongqing Publishing Group, Publisher of Massive Sci-Fi Bestseller "The Three-Body Problem" "In this coming-of-age story, Amos grows to think of others more as he runs a race to save his soul and his grandfather's life. While this book falls into the YA (Young Adult) category, I think it carries appeal for readers of all ages who enjoy the magic of childlike wonder. Amos the Amazing is highly imaginative and action-packed with well-choreographed fight scenes... which Jorah Kai accomplishes with finesse! I highly recommend this book to readers of all ages who enjoy books like Harry Potter or the Percy Jackson series. If you are ready for adventure and enjoy exploring new fantastical worlds safely from home, this one is for you. I give it a hearty 5 stars!" – Donna Sundblad, author of Dragonborn "A fun YA coming-of-age solarpunk fantasy that's oozing with creativity and imagination." - Marie Sinadjan, ‘Humans Media’ "I absolutely adore Amos. Like Harry Potter meets Lord of the Rings." @book_st_gram "My favorite book of the year." - Brooke Auckerman @BrookLovesBooks23 "Full of excitement, adventure, and magic" - @lisabookishlife "Once it got me turning the pages, I simply couldn't stop. For me, that was the theme of Taoist thought, which gets me every time I encounter it in the wild. It is so beautiful -- and here it is, like finding grass growing from glass. For other readers, the element that snags and pulls the imagination into this story might be one of a hundred others. That's kind of this book's magic…" - @Donasbooks "The end left me gasping for the next installment," - Richard Devall, Vine Voice "Amos the Amazing is a bedazzling and delightful adventure through a world of wonderment and imagination. The world Jorah Kai has created is full of colorful characters, layered historical depth, and cultural splendor—a recipe for pure literary amazement! This book is a wordsmith's wonderland and a poet's playground that weaves a love for everything Chongqing into a tale that is sure to become an international classic." – Garrett H Jones, Author, and Publisher of Amos the Amazing

Book excerpt: She’s always loved fairy tales. Starring in one isn’t on her bucket list… Not that Hope has much of a bucket list, except in her head. Forced to work for a pittance by her cruel stepfather, she has no way out of the drudgery of her life. Being mugged in the park at night is just par for the course… until a big, green monster rescues her. Rather than waking up in a hospital bed with a severe concussion as she expects, she’s whisked off to a fantastical land filled with all the creatures from her childhood stories. Only she quickly realizes that not everything beautiful is nice, and her big, green monster is not what she expected. A battle-scarred warrior, he might be her only chance of getting home alive. And, well… it doesn’t hurt that he’s put together like a Greek god, but boasting about his… equipment doesn’t get him on her good list. Saving her from certain death though… yeah, that might do it. Between a witch’s curse and a treacherous court, Hope must make a choice about her future and whether her monster lives or dies…

Book excerpt: The eighth and final book in the epic fantasy House War series closes this chapter in a beloved world of magic and political intrigue, where new threats are stirring. When the Sleepers wake. Once, that phrase meant: never. The Sleepers were a myth, part of a story told to children. But in truth, the Sleepers, ancient princes in the court of the Winter Queen, were imprisoned in slumber by the gods themselves—in the cold, dark ruins of the ancient city that lies buried beneath the capitol of the Empire. And that prison is fraying, at last. They are waking. The gods no longer walk the world. There is no power that can stand against the princes when they wake—and the city that has been Jewel’s home for her entire life will be destroyed when the Sleepers walk. There is only one person to whom they owe allegiance, only one chance to halt them before they destroy everything in their ancient rage. But that person is the Winter Queen; she is not, and has never been mortal. Jewel carries the last of the surviving saplings that might usher in a new Summer age—but all of the roads that lead to the court of the Queen are closed. Jewel ATerafin has faced the Oracle’s test. She has control of the prophetic powers that she once considered a curse and a burden. She will find her way to the Winter Queen, and she will ask—or beg—the Winter Queen to intervene to save her kind, her House, and everything she loves. But she is mortal, and time has never been her friend. The demons are waiting to bar her way, bringing battle to the hidden ancient paths on which she must travel. To win, she must face the true meaning of the Oracle’s test, and risk sanity and life to make the choice that has always lurked at the heart of the firstborn’s test. And even then, it might be too late.
