The Second Womb by Anna-Karen Sorensen

The Second Womb by Anna-Karen Sorensen The Second Womb is a nest, the sacred place that we all must have to complete our becoming. Whether it is the warmth and safety required after the first birth, or it is the space needed for withdrawal and reimagining, the second womb is the needed surrogate-a compassionate experience that works outside of Time as it helps in healing.
This is a book of poetry that has seven chapters. They deal with the feminine, our sacred spaces, the isolation of thought, large and small truths, life and its rhythms, and many other ruminations.

The Apotheosis by Darrell Lee

The Apotheosis by Darrell   LeeEnter for your chance to win 1 of 10 signed hardback copies of the award winning fiction/action novel, The Apotheosis by Darrell Lee.

"The Apotheosis takes the big ideas and moral complexity of hard sci-fi and mixes it with modern thriller trappings to create a science fiction chiller that will keep you engaged until the very last page." ★★★★ San Francisco Book Review

"The Apotheosis is a twisted tale of incredible magnitude. The commonalities of life —love, loss, passion, and fear—are ingeniously woven into this dark and, at times, insane story that explores currently untrodden territory in which a longing for immortality is at the heart." ★★★★★ Seattle Book Review

"There is a lot that goes on in this book, and honestly, it all kept me going despite its length. With the story not being too far into the future, it is scary to think whether cloning will be in our actual future or not. It is refreshing to read a story where everything falls into place and the people and places contain secrets in its pages that are revealed throughout the story to its audience." ★★★★★ Tulsa Book Review

"To call The Apotheosis a modern Frankenstein is only partially accurate. While there are many parallels between the two books, The Apotheosis is a wholly modern creation, revealing new hopes and new fears for our rapidly changing world. Many fans of science fiction will find it a fascinating and thought-provoking tale, just as I did." ★★★★★ Manhattan Book Review

That Wild Country by Mark Kenyon

That Wild Country by Mark KenyonFrom prominent outdoorsman and nature writer Mark Kenyon comes an engrossing reflection on the past and future battles over our most revered landscapes—America’s public lands.

Every American is a public-land owner, inheritor to the largest public-land trust in the world. These vast expanses provide a home to wildlife populations, a vital source of clean air and water, and a haven for recreation.

Since its inception, however, America’s public land system has been embroiled in controversy—caught in the push and pull between the desire to develop the valuable resources the land holds or conserve them. Alarmed by rising tensions over the use of these lands, hunter, angler, and outdoor enthusiast Mark Kenyon set out to explore the spaces involved in this heated debate, and learn firsthand how they came to be and what their future might hold.

Part travelogue and part historical examination, That Wild Country invites readers on an intimate tour of the wondrous wild and public places that are a uniquely profound and endangered part of the American landscape.
