<b>While you're downloading a copy of <i>Saving Babe Ruth</i>, get a copy of the next book in the series (<i>The Killdeer Connection</i>) on SALE today for only $2.99!</b> <br /><br /><i>Going down swinging is not an option . . . </i><br /><br />Survival is the name of the game when two obsessed men teeter on the cusp of madness in a war over a kids’ baseball field in this thriller based on a true story. <br /><br />Travel baseball promoter Rob Barkus has a full bench. He’s backed by a corrupt board of directors, a sports-fixated high school administration, and a mob of crazy travel baseball parents. He’ll stop at nothing to kill the town’s sandlot baseball league so that his elite travel teams can take over its beautiful Babe Ruth baseball field. <br /><br />The only obstacle between Barkus and his field of dreams is David Thompson, a Civil War buff and burned-out lawyer. When Thompson steps up to save the crumbling league for his son and the rest of the sandlot players in town, Barkus unleashes a cunning and ruthless attack against David, his family, and his teenaged league of misfit players. <br /><br />Thompson is outnumbered and surrounded. He’s like a man who walked into quicksand. The harder he struggles to save the league, the deeper he sinks. On top of it all, Thompson is stuck in a family Catch-22. If he surrenders, he might lose his son's love along with his own self-respect, not to mention losing the game of summer for the sandlot kids in town. Yet if he doesn't back down, it threatens his marriage and deprives his son of any chance to play on the high school team. <br /><br />Thompson is on an emotional roller coaster and he can't get off. He is fighting his own civil war as he struggles to make a difference in the town he cherishes without harming the family he loves. <br /><br />Standing alone and pushed to his breaking point, he needs to figure out when to fold and when to fight. One thing is for sure: if he finally snaps, he won’t take any prisoners. <br /><br />Captivating characters lead double lives and keep secrets in this award-winning page-turner, laced with humor, about a man who takes a stand and risks it all to make a difference in a world gone mad. <br /><br /><i>New York Times</i> bestselling author Margot Livesey says Swyers "has created a man for all seasons" in David Thompson and calls <i>Saving Babe Ruth</i> "an absorbing and compulsively readable novel."<br /><br />In a foreword, Babe Ruth's grandson, Tom Stevens, calls <i>Saving Babe Ruth<i> a "great story." <br /><br /><b>Read <i>Saving Babe Ruth</i> as the prequel to the Lawyer David Thompson Series which starts with the <i>The Killdeer Connection</i> as the first book. <i>The Killdeer Connection</i> was selected as a 2017 winner in Amazon's international Kindle Scout writing competition.</b> <br /><br /><i> Saving Babe Ruth </i> is an Amazon multiple category bestseller.<br /><br /><b>Gold Winner,  Benjamin Franklin Award, 2015 "Best First Book: Fiction."<br />Silver Winner, Benjamin Franklin Award, 2015 "Best Popular Fiction."<br />Readers Views, "Best Regional Fiction 2014/2015: Northeast."<br />Finalist, "Best New Fiction," 2014 USA Best Book Awards.</b><p></p></i></i>

<i><h3>The first book in a trilogy about three "brothers" and the girls they must protect.</h3></i><br />All Christiana wanted was a little flirty fun.<br />What she got was a one-way ticket to her personal nightmare.<br /><br />Her friend is dead…and she knows who did it. Now a key witness in a murder trial, she’s been hidden away in the one place no one will think to look for her: Eton Preparatory School for Boys.<br /><br />It’s a stupid move. Insane. But she doesn’t have a choice.<br />Instead of completing her senior year with the popular crowd, she’s being forced to hide in a school with exactly zero XX chromosomes. Even worse, she’s somehow supposed to act like the Neanderthals walking the halls.<br /><br />But then she meets the guys next door—the smoking-hot ones. And it doesn’t help that one in particular could unravel her in a heartbeat…and potentially blow her cover. How’s she supposed to resist Trey Calloway, the star hockey player who never backs down from a fight…and who never takes no for an answer?<br /><br />She’s supposed to be focused on staying safe, not on the guy who’s getting under her skin. Her chilling past isn’t going to suddenly disappear.<br />In fact, it might just be catching up with her.<br /><br /><br /><b><i>If you're looking for a fast paced thrill ride packed with drama, suspense, romance and unexpected twists, then See No Evil is just the book for you.</i></b> <br /><br /><br /><i>COMING SOON: <br />Speak No Evil - due for release in Jan 2017<br />Hear No Evil - due for release in Feb/Mar 2017<br /><br />For exclusive access to an unpublished short story about how Christiana's nightmare began, sign up for Jordan's newsletter: http://www.subscribepage.com/u5u0a3</i><br />

Margot tells Lizzy that nothing in life is ever really settled, not until they “pack the earth over your grave, darling.”<br /><br />And of course, as usual, Margot is right.<br /><br />Although Lizzy is living her dream at “Equus Paradiso Farm” there is no guarantee that her future is settled. She is terrified to think that despite her hard work, despite her commitment and desire, her efforts may not be enough.<br /><br />Regardless of the shifting sands beneath her feet, Lizzy still has a job to do. It is a job with growing responsibilities, without regular hours, without weekends off, that pays almost nothing and keeps beating her up physically and mentally.<br /><br />And while success is not guaranteed, failure in part or whole appears to be.<br /><br />Maybe she is foolish with her rainbow and unicorn thinking; maybe her nay-sayers were right all along and reality is coming to kick her in the rear and eject her out of paradise and back out into the ordinary world.<br /><br />Not all good deeds are rewarded, or efforts even appreciated as the territory of her daily routine gets trickier to navigate.<br /><br />Life is not fair. But giving up before the battle is finished is not an option.<br /><br />Though she’ll be tested, though she’ll know doubt and failure, she will come to discover, she is indeed, the “right girl for the job.”<br /><br />Lizzie's saga continues in Book III of the critically acclaimed Dressage Chronicles series.

In the long hot 'Summer of 88', the author packed up his motorcycle and pulled out of the garage with no destination or return date in mind.  1988 would prove to be the worst drought since the ‘dustbowl’ of the 1930’s.  Yellowstone would burn,  Ronald Reagan would shake his fist at the 'Evil Empire', and the author, oblivious to it all, hit the road and never looked back. That trip would consume the entire summer, logging over twelve thousand miles from sea to sea and back.  “Alone In The Wind” is the account of that trip, with pictures, maps, historical & geographical notes, and rolling narrative.<br /><br />A few selected excerpts:<br /><br />The early evening sun is bright red and except for wind slapping the tents, all is quiet.  Other campers are talking in subdued tones.  The  scene has a timeless quality I can’t explain.  Maybe it’s how I’d picture an Oregon Trail  camp.  Everybody too exhausted to do more than whisper, anticipating the day ahead, trying to forget the ones behind.<br /><br />Kurt Vonnegut might have written that the Custer annihilation occurred solely to provide me with a ranger to give advice on the coming storms.  That irony rattled around in my helmet for the next forty miles.<br /><br />Chewing mindlessly I stare at passing trucks with red eyes.  This has been an endless, grueling day.  A far cry from the mystical experience that other writers claim.  The bone numbing reality of motorcycle touring is exhaustion, dehydration, disorientation. Vacant eyes seem to be nothing more than rubber stoppers that keep my liquefied brains from spilling out over my face.<br /><br />Carved out by the tides, the cave is probably underwater for most of the day.  At the entrance is a rock with a well-formed depression at the top.  Without thinking I dump both bottles of Atlantic Ocean into that shallow basin, move deeper into the cave and sit.  There’s a lot on my mind, and it all seems to be demanding immediate attention.  The mission will be accomplished.  The oceans will unite.  It will take a few hours, and I won’t be here to see it, but this is a better way.  Letting the sea take it on its own terms seems more fitting.<br /><br />Heat was the real problem.  Both the heat of a western summer day and the heat thrown off an air-cooled engine that's being pushed to its limits.  <br /><br />While it was never transcendental, the passage was always very real, very immediate, and unforgettable.  Thinking back to the other riders that I met, it seemed the same for them as well.  They were all worn down with fatigue and loneliness - while at the same time brimming over with confidence and satisfaction. I won't forget them.

An inspiring biography of Muhammad Ali from the legendary Walter Dean Myers.<br /><br />From his childhood in the segregated South to his final fight with Parkinson's disease, Muhammad Ali never backed down. He was banned from boxing during his prime because he refused to fight in Vietnam. He became a symbol of the antiwar movement -- and a defender of civil rights. As "The Greatest," he was a boxer of undeniable talent and courage. He took the world by storm -- only Ali could "float like a butterfly, sting like a bee!"<br /><br />Muhammad Ali: Olympic gold medalist, former heavyweight champion, and one of the most influential people of all time.
