<p><b>The extraordinary life of history's first modern lesbian who inspired the television series<i> Gentleman Jack</i></b></p><p>Anne Lister's journals were so shocking that the first person to crack their secret code hid them behind a fake panel in his ancestral home. Anne Lister was a Regency landowner, an intrepid world traveller ... and an unabashed lover of other women. <br />In this bold new biography, prizewinning author Angela Steidele uses the diaries to create a portrait of Anne Lister as we've never seen her before: a woman in some ways very much of her time and in others far ahead of it. Anne Lister recorded everything from the most intimate details of her numerous liaisons through to her plans to make her fortune by exploiting the coal seams under her family estate in Halifax and her reaction to the Peterloo massacre. She conducted a love life of labyrinthine complexity, all while searching for a girlfriend who could provide her with both financial security and true love.<br />Anne Lister's rich and unconventional life is now the subject of the major BBC TV drama series<i> Gentleman Jack</i>.</p>

With a new introduction by Jim Hutton’s co-writer Tim Wapshott, only this Kindle-exclusive edition of ’Mercury and Me' is the updated story of rock’s oddest couple. Includes more than 50 colour photographs. The relationship between Freddie Mercury and Jim Hutton evolved over several months in 1984 and 1985. Even when they first slept together Hutton had no idea who Mercury was, and when the star told him his name it meant nothing to him. Hutton worked as a barber at the Savoy Hotel and retained his job and suburban lodgings long after first meeting the rock legend. Hutton finally moved in with Mercury and later also worked as his gardener. Hutton was never fully assimilated into Mercury's jet-setting lifestyle, nor did he want to be, but from 1985 until Mercury's death in 1991 he was closer to him than anyone. He knew all Mercury's closest chums including the other members of Queen, Elton John, David Bowie and Montserrat Caballé. Ever present at the countless Sunday lunch gatherings and opulent parties, in stark contrast Hutton also nursed Mercury through his terminal illness, often held him through the night in his final weeks, and was with him as he died. No one can tell the story of the last few years of Mercury's private life - the ecstasies and the agonies - more accurately or honestly than Jim Hutton.

<b><b>The<i> New York Times </i>bestselling memoir about identity, love and understanding. Now a major motion picture starring Nicole Kidman, Russell Crowe, and Lucas Hedges, directed by Joel Edgerton. "Every sentence of the story will stir your soul" (<i>O Magazine</i>).</b></b><br /><b>  </b><br /> The son of a Baptist pastor and deeply embedded in church life in small town Arkansas, as a young man Garrard Conley was terrified and conflicted about his sexuality.<br />  <br /> When Garrard was a nineteen-year-old college student, he was outed to his parents, and was forced to make a life-changing decision: either agree to attend a church-supported conversion therapy program that promised to “cure” him of homosexuality; or risk losing family, friends, and the God he had prayed to every day of his life. Through an institutionalized Twelve-Step Program heavy on Bible study, he was supposed to emerge heterosexual, ex-gay, cleansed of impure urges and stronger in his faith in God for his brush with sin. Instead, even when faced with a harrowing and brutal journey, Garrard found the strength and understanding to break out in search of his true self and forgiveness. <br />  <br /> By confronting his buried past and the burden of a life lived in shadow, Garrard traces the complex relationships among family, faith, and community. At times heart-breaking, at times triumphant, this memoir is a testament to love that survives despite all odds.

<h1>Alan Turing</h1><br /><b>* * *Download for FREE on Kindle Unlimited + Free BONUS Inside!* * *<br /><br />Read On Your Computer, MAC, Smartphone, Kindle Reader, iPad, or Tablet.</b><br /><br />Alan Turing had a radical and ingenious mind. He is considered one of the fathers of artificial intelligence, and his theories on this matter range from purely mechanical to almost spiritual. During World War II, his decryption of the Nazis’ Enigma codes proved vital for the Allied victory over the Axis powers. Turing’s fingerprints are everywhere, and yet his own country for quite some time failed to acknowledge it. It wasn’t until 2009 that the then prime minister of the United Kingdom, Gordon Brown, issued an official, posthumous apology to Alan Turing for “the appalling way he was treated.” To many, this was an admission that was far too long in coming.<br /><br /><h2>Inside you will read about...</h2><br />✓ The Death of His First Love<br />✓ Turing Machines<br />✓ Breaking the Nazis’ Enigma Codes<br />✓ Conviction and Chemical Castration<br />✓ The Poison Apple<br /><b>And much more!</b><br /><br />As the chronicling of this book demonstrates, Alan Turing’s life was by no means easy; there were hardships, trials, and tribulations that would shake him to his core. But despite the tragic way his life ended by way of a poison apple, the spark ignited by Alan Turing’s short life is still something exceedingly brilliant to behold.<br /><br /><i>Series Information: World War 2 Biographies Book 7</i>

Over 100,000 copies sold!<br /><br /><b>Coming Out, Then Coming Home<br /></b> <br />Christopher Yuan, the son of Chinese immigrants, discovered at an early age that he was different. He was attracted to other boys. As he grew into adulthood, his mother, Angela, hoped to control the situation. Instead, she found that her son and her life were spiraling out of control—and her own personal demons were determined to defeat her.<br /> <br />Years of heartbreak, confusion, and prayer followed before the Yuans found a place of complete surrender, which is God’s desire for all families. Their amazing story, told from the perspectives of both mother and son, offers hope for anyone affected by homosexuality.<br /> <br />God calls all who are lost to come home to him. Casting a compelling vision for holy sexuality, <i>Out of a Far Country</i> speaks to prodigals, parents of prodigals, and those wanting to minister to the gay community.<br /><br /><i>“But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion, and ran and embraced him and kissed him.” </i> - Luke 15:20<br /> <br />Includes a discussion guide for personal reflection and group use.

At age seven she was put on the boys’ soccer team. At age thirty-five she would become the highest goal scorer—male or female—in the history of soccer, capturing the nation’s heart with her team’s 2015 World Cup Championship. Called an inspiration and “badass” by President Obama, Abby has become a fierce advocate for women’s rights and equal opportunity, pushing to translate the success of her team to the real world. </p><p>As she reveals in this searching memoir, Abby’s professional success often masked her inner struggle to reconcile the various parts of herself: ferocious competitor, daughter, leader, wife. With stunning candor, Abby shares her inspiring and often brutal journey from girl in Rochester, New York, to world-class athlete. Far more than a sports memoir, <em>Forward </em>is gripping tale of resilience and redemption—and a reminder that heroism is, above all, about embracing life’s challenges with fearlessness and heart.</p><p></p>

Peggy Caserta, founder of the famous Haight-Ashbury hippie boutique Mnasidika, and lover and girlfriend of Janis Joplin, was a Louisiana homecoming queen turned airsick stewardess who eventually landed in 1960s San Francisco and set up shop. Her store was a hang-out for The Grateful Dead and Big Brother and the Holding Company; it was where Wes Wilson’s posters hung and Bill Graham sold concert tickets and Owsley’s LSD was enjoyed.<br /><br />Caserta’s world of psychedelic peace, love, LSD, and rock kaleidoscoped into bereavement, heroin addiction, prison, and desperation. She was hated, betrayed, and self-exiled, and after many, many years has recovered, returning home to the bayou to care for her mother with dementia.<br /><br />Now Caserta is giving a new generation an inside-look into a revolution—both countercultural and personal—in her new memoir. It’s the celebration of a transitional time in history, and an attempt at redemption.

<b>An asexual man is now in a sexual relationship with a male model... and is in over his head.</b><br /><br />Chris and Mark's relationship evolves. Both men learn to depend on the other during trying times. Chris is in the closet with his family, but Mark doesn't add pressure and remains a solid support. Meanwhile, Mark is struggling to reconnect with his parents and older sisters and Chris is the catalyst that enables the vain male model to return home.<br /><br />All good things must come to an end, and if you've read this far in the series, you should know that the last few chapters of this book contain the long-foreshadowed Big Fight. <br /><br /><b>This self-portrait was written as a romance... but not every story gets a happy ending.</b><br /><br /><i>[The Stud is Book Five in a ten book series. You can read this as the mid-point of a four book arc. You should probably read the friends-to-lovers story (contained in the first three books) to understand the fullness of the characters, but this isn't strictly necessary. Book One, Book Four and Book Eight all serve as 'jumping in' points for the series.<br /><br />It's Just Us Here: The Stud is a <b>118,000 word</b> journey of two men connecting in a deep, spiritual way as they navigate a sexual relationship while juggling careers, friends and family.]</i>
