A Lady Crowned with Fleurs-de-lys: A Historical Novel
Chosen to be the bride of the young King of France, Charles, Isabella, a princess from the German duchy of Bavaria, is welcomed to the most magnificent court of Europe. She spends idyllic years with a loving husband and doting children. But the country is ripe with intrigues and political schemes hatched by the king’s ambitious uncles and brother, all of them trying to take advantage of the still simmering war between France and England for their own personal gain.
A drama enfolds that will forever change Isabella’s life and reputation. After a first attack of folly, Charles falls deeper and deeper into insanity. Desperate and alone, Isabella finds refuge in her brother-in-law’s love. When Louis is murdered she becomes a pawn in the political intrigues that are ripping France apart and her worst instincts take over as she abandons herself to a life of greed, sex, pleasures, and selfishness. She becomes “Isabeau of Bavaria” – a foreigner in the eyes of her people – dishonoring her husband and herself when she declares her son Charles, the rightful future king of France, to be illegitimate.
When she dies, a few years after her husband, and when her son at last does become Charles VII, nobody remembers the gracious princess from Germany who enchanted them all on her wedding day at the side of the young King. They think only of the corrupted woman whose name has become synonymous with depravity and blind ambition.$19.99
ANTIOXIDANTS: Mighty Cancer Weapons
Thomas Lupich is a retired electrical designer from Princeton University’s Plasma Physics Laboratory. He is a tai chi instructor with an interest in science and health. When his wife developed cancer they began a quest for the best cancer treatments. After she passed away he continued that quest. His studies and strong interest in health and cancer, over a period of many years, has given him insights into various aspects of alternative health and healing approaches. He recognized the usefulness of powerful antioxidants for cancer patients. When he learned of a particularly powerful one, silica hydride (SH), he realized that it had the potential to greatly enhance the quality of life of the cancer patient. About a year ago he discovered an alternative medicine, Protocel that proved to be effective in curing cancer, at least from an anecdotal perspective. He realized that there is a main attribute of Protocels that also exists in SH. He brought Protocels to the attention a cancer victim, whom he calls Susie. Susie had been treated for metastatic breast cancer for eight years. It had metastasized to her brain. (Only one victim out of a thousand survives brain cancer) For various reasons she refused to take Protocels, but was willing to take more of the SH, which she was already taking. She did so with other antioxidants and supplements for about six months. The only side effects that she noticed were more energy and stamina. At the end of that period she was found to be cancer free. She said that her doctors were flabbergasted at the complete remission of her cancer. This experience motivated Thomas to write this book for cancer patients on the benefits of antioxidants in general and SH in particular.$2.99–$9.99
Presently, the pay system used for U.S. postal employees to record clockable hours is complex and difficult to comprehend, even by employees, as well as supervisors. C.H.A.P.P.S. is a simplified pay system designed for the postal payroll system, and with C.H.A.P.P.S. there is no need to cut jobs at the post office. Larry Pinson, Sr. is a retired postal employee, and created C.H.A.P.P.S. after undertaking an endeavor to understand the postal service pay system, and found it to be antiquated and in need of change to modernize and simplify the system. C.H.A.P.P.S. can also be used for city and county employees, teachers, police officers, and pay systems of other government agencies and large institutions; firemen, public transportation employees such as bus drivers; and private sector businesses, large and small, such as restaurants and barber shops. Additionally, C.H.A.P.P.S. can be used for jobs worldwide, and is excellent for military people coming home.$2.99–$20.30
Confessions in a Crown Vic: A Commentary on the American Dream Second Edition
“Confessions in a Crown Vic”
is the story of professional displacement during the Great Recession, an Architect as Cab driver, while seeking Architecture work. It interviews Paolo Soleri the visionary urban designer, the traffic engineer, Louis Lagomarsino, for Phoenix’s highway designs, and the cab passengers’ short stories of marginalization for their lack of a car. It’s a journey through an Architect’s life, beginning with schooling, travels, design, internship, and practices in the private to public projects for the USPS, USAF, USACOE, NAVFAC and manufacturing semiconductor facilities. It takes us through different urban configurations. But most of all it takes us through history’s cycles of political change, the semantics of their origins, the delivery of designs, and the affects of expansion and colonialist attitude’s in America. It’s a critique of Urban Sprawl, and the irrationality of relying on housing starts to determine a healthy economy. It examines Keynesian versus Classical economics, comparing them with the events of the last “American” century. He illuminates the American Dream’s unsustainable promise to even its poorest citizens, considering whether we can still re-materialize that dream out of its current mythological existence. Is this dream for everyone? Can we grow a culture based on the automobile and a limited fossil fuel economy? It challenges this dream’s configuration, while placing a heavy burden of responsibility for our economic demise on its mythical component, the greed that drove it, and the Sprawl that has burdened it.

Don’t Leave It All To The Teachers: Parenting and Schooling Revised Edition
Don’t Leave It All To The Teachers: D r D E A N A
This book stems from thirty-two years in teaching. It aims to take parents into the child’s learning environment without the stress which some parents have of schools and teachers and to show them some key aspects of schooling which can have a lasting effect on a child’s education and life chances. I do not intend to lecture to parents on how they ought to bring up their children. Instead, I merely set out to provide them with some of the tools with which to enhance their children’s success at school a kind of tool-kit. It is not meant to be a blueprint for success but an aid to success.
Here are some of the topics covered
- Preparing the child for primary secondary transfer
- Going beyond the parents-evening
- Schoolwork, homework and teacher expectation
- Seeing the home as an extension of the school
- Family values and how they influence a child’s schooling
- How to be a Positive Parental Role-model
The book is written in a style and language and with illustrations that make it easily accessible to parents of all ethnic communities.
‘DON’T LEAVE IT ALL TO THE TEACHER’ is a companion guide for parents, but it
is equally good for teachers in their inseparable journey in the education of children.
Dr Alleyne’s guidance over a range of processes will help parents understand how to support their
children in their learning, but it will also help teachers in their understanding of some of the
problems faced by this group of students. I am an experienced teacher in secondary schools
in London UK. I am also a retired Head Teacher of a Secondary School, as well as a former
Chair of Governors of both a Primary and a large Secondary school. From these various
perspectives I recommend this guide as a ‘must-read’ to parents and teachers.

Four Princesses from Provence
During the Middle Ages noble women were often pawns in the great game of dynastic politics. But some of them were important players in their own right. The four daughters of the Count of Provence used their charms, beauty, and intelligence to move from their father’s small kingdom in the south of France to positions of power across Europe. Marguerite, Eleanor, and Sancha became queens of France, England, and the Kingdom of Sicily. They followed their husbands to new homes where they gave their new lands children and a family life. But the fourth daughter, Beatrice, was different. The man she loved was a political enemy; the man she married was an indifferent and self-absorbed prince who made it clear that political intrigue was more important to him than the love of a gentle and romantic girl from another country. The only happy moments Beatrice enjoyed were spent in secrecy with her lover. But the stakes of her emotional attachment were high and the dangers of a misstep were always great. Based on research into the history of Europe in the thirteenth century and on travel to all of the destinations where these princesses lived, this novel depicts a crucial period as Europe emerged from the slumber of the Dark Ages and began to awake slowly to the promise of modern life.
