The sole purpose of writing this book is to shake Americans out of their stupor and into the greatness they keep swearing this country is all about. Americans are 100% responsible for where we are now and where we will be in the future. The power is in our hands but not as long as we allow ourselves to stay divided. President Obama is not the sole reason for our division but because of racism, he is a major factor. This is a book explaining the manipulation of the public. The American public keeps allowing the wealthy minority to divide them making them co-conspirators in their own demise. The election of this black President makes Americans easy pickings. Hopefully, at the end of this book, America will finally be motivated to recognize and get past their subconscious racism, which makes us especially vulnerable to any type of divisive manipulation. Hopefully, we can stop dividing and unify for our own good.

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Penelope Douglas comes a companion novel to Bully. This is Jared’s story. Have you ever been so angry that hitting things felt good? Or numb to all emotions? The past few years have been like that for me. Traveling between fury and indifference with no stops in between. Some people hate me for it, while others are scared of me. But none of them can hurt me, because I don't care about anything or anyone. Except Tatum. I love her so much that I hate her. I hate that I can't let her go. We used to be friends, but I found out that I couldn't trust her—or anyone else. So I hurt her. I pushed her away. But I still need her. She centers me. Engaging her, challenging her, pushing her—it’s the one last part of me that feels anything anymore. But then she went and screwed everything up. She left for a year and came back a different girl. Now, when I push, she pushes back…and I’m not sure either one of us will ever be the same. Includes a teaser for RIVAL, the next unforgettable novel from Penelope Douglas….

Tuesday, 9:35 a.m. To do list: 1.Try to smile when people mention my backstabbing, lying, ex-boyfriend, Daniel. 2.Ply my ugly cat, Dexter, with some catnip--the good stuff--to keep him away from my last fur-free Hugo Boss suit. 3.Decide whether or not having a baby with my best friend Gretchen is the craziest, stupidest, most insane, incredible thing I will ever do. At thirtysomething, Blaine Dunhill has a great career in fashion advertising, a fab NYC apartment, and some loyal friends that he's trying to share amicably with his ex, a famous soap star. Working in the big-time cosmetics world is all about glamour and artifice ("Like Barbies that can talk"), but what the self-professed nice guy from Wisconsin really wants is something and someone real to come home to. And then his best friend Gretchen makes him a really tempting offer: Since neither one of them has found the real thing yet, why don't they start a family together? Suddenly, as life becomes a whirl of ultrasounds, online baby registries, baby names (Civil Liberty, anyone?), and other adjustments, Blaine discovers something surprising: No one is more attractive than an expectant father. Now, in the wacky, gossipy world of fashion and celebrity, where coming out has never been more "in," and the words "gay dad" are synonymous with "way hot," Blaine is in for the wildest ride of his life...and a shock that will change everything...
I'm sorry that Daniel couldn't get a piece of news without overreacting and making
it all about him. I'm sorry that we weren't able to share good news in our own way.
But I'm not sorry that everyone knows. I'm definitely not sorry about the baby.

Author Jeff Vogel did not go into parenthood with any delusions. He knew that he would love his daughter, and that was terrifying. What if he screwed up? And he knew that life with a baby would be different, that it would be filled with an endless stream of filthy diapers, unexplained wailing, and sleepless nights. Not to mention no sex. The parenting books painted a picture of smart, communicative babies and mindless, limitless joy, but he knew they were lying to him. So he wrote his own book. The Poo Bomb: True Tales of Parental Terror recounts, in a no-punches-pulled style, the first year of life of Cordelia, Jeff's freshly hatched, gooey human girl. The first year of parenthood isn't about joy or fulfillment. It is about menial labor, wiping up human waste, and marking time until the kid is old enough to run and play and thank you for its life. Jeff chronicles the journey through the morass of year one week by week. Rich with irreverent honesty and humor, The Poo Bomb is the reality show of parenting books: It reflects what most parents have sometimes guiltily felt about their not-so-delightful bundles of joy.
My Daughter, the Evil Temptress I am pretty sure that this part is mainly a
reflection of my parental bias. But I think that my baby is uncommonly cute. She is
definitely not one of those ugly babies. She has all the right parts, in the proper ...
