In <i>Cruise Confidential,</i> Brian David Bruns spills the dirt — or in this case, the dirty water — on those romantic, fun-filled vacations at sea. His hilarious chronicle of the year he spent working for Carnival Cruise Lines takes readers down into the areas where the crew works and lives, leaving readers gasping with laughter as they’re assaulted nonstop with events that range from the absurd to the utterly bizarre. Stewards fighting over food. Cutlery allowances and other nonsensical rules. What the crew calls those onboard (no, it’s not “passengers”). And of course, the sex. An abundance of ready, willing, and able bodies eager for action on a vessel replete with nooks and crannies leads to love in some mighty strange, and seemingly impossible, places. Breezy, entertaining, and informative, <i>Cruise Confidential</i> is essential reading for those planning a cruise or for anyone who just needs a good laugh.

<b>Named 2019 Best Women's Detective Fiction, Texas Association of Authors</b> <br /><i>Will a case of mistaken identity be the death of her?</i> <br />Madison Reynolds is looking forward to a few days of rest and relaxation. Her best friend Genny is judging a celebrity bake-off near DC, so it’s the perfect opportunity for a girl’s getaway. With fun-loving Granny Bert in tow, the trio heads to the very heart of the Intel community. Deep in alphabet soup territory—surrounded by CIA, NSA, FBI and more—it takes only moments for things to go awry.<p></p> <br />A mix-up at the airport leaves Madison with the wrong luggage, and a last-minute change in accommodations lands them at <i>The Columbia Inn at Peralynna.</i> How can they know its ties to the spy world will soon spin them into its web?<p></p><br />Designed as a CIA safe house, the inn has a fascinating history. When it seems a mysterious man in a dark coat is following her, Madison scoffs at her over-action imagination. She’s listened to too many spy tales, spun by the innkeeper herself. The stories of espionage and agents are intriguing, but too incredible to be real. The Texans know nothing about secret codes and counterintelligence. They’ve never heard of The Lilac Code, or the illusive agent-for-hire known simply as Kalypso.<p></p> <br />Back home in The Sisters, a drama is unfolding that involves Madison’s precious twins. She’s raised them to do the right thing, no matter the consequence, but will their quest for justice put them in danger? <p></p><br />Thrust into impossible situations of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, the twins risk everything to save their school, while deep in spy territory, Madison and Genny race against the clock—and the elements—to save Granny Bert’s life.<p></p> <br />The award-winning <i>The Sisters, Texas Mystery Series</i> continues in this exciting Book 7. This is a stand-alone book, but best when enjoyed as a full series experience.

<p>I started writing <em>Optimize YOUR Bnb </em>in July 2017 while staying at an Airbnb in Estonia. I met Veronika while exploring Old Town Tallinn. When I found out Veronika was an Airbnb host, I asked to see her listing. I saw potential, but her online listing wasn’t much. I told Veronika about how I optimize Airbnb listings. We agreed that I would stay at her listing for a small discount in exchange for a fully optimized Airbnb listing. As of November 2017, Veronika has 10 5-star reviews.</p><p><strong>I wrote Optimize YOUR Bnb to reach more hosts like Veronika. </strong>This book contains the culmination of my five-year experience with Airbnb from being an employee and a guest, to a host, to Superhost, and to starting an Airbnb property management company. I’ve hosted everything from a living room couch to a 3-story, 5-bedroom hillside mansion. The information in this book is more complete and effective than anything on the market.</p><p> </p><p>Trouble deciding between which book to buy?
