Inside Book:

In this funny, vulnerable, and all-too-real memoir, award-winning content creator and actress Avani Gregg takes you behind the scenes of her incredible life, sharing how a girl from small-town Indiana went on to become TikToker of the Year. With more than fifty million followers on social media; invitations to glamorous events around the world; awards, magazine covers, and even her own makeup line—Avani Gregg never imagined this wild ride for herself. After all, she was just from a small town, spending her time hanging with friends and family and combing thrift-store racks for finds. It only took one video—her famous “Clown Girl Check”—and she suddenly found herself vibing as one of the original Hype House creators. “People think I exploded overnight,” the eighteen-year-old TikTok sensation says. “But they don’t know the half of it. They don’t know what came before or after. They don’t know my Backstory.” In this eye-opening memoir, Avani shares the ups and down of her remarkable life, including the devastating back injury that forced her to retire from gymnastics and abandon her dreams of Olympic gold. In the aftermath, struggling to make sense of it all, she found her calling: creating jaw-droppingly dramatic makeup looks on social media that leave her “Bebs” begging for more. Diving deep into topics like mental health, relationships, bullying, and more, Avani shares her private sketchbook and most intimate thoughts: “There’s a lot we all think and feel but are afraid to say out loud. Well, I’m saying it…and it’s gonna get deep.” This is the unfiltered, revealing, and deeply inspiring Backstory of someone with big dreams and how she worked to achieve them. And Avani is not holding back.

Book Summary:

A fun, practical guide that reveals the essentials of good fiction and memoir writing by exposing the most common mistakes literary writers make. All great works of fiction and memoir are unique-but most bad novels, stories, and memoirs have a lot in common. From clunky dialogue to poorly sketchedout characters, sagging pacing to exaggerated prose, these beginners' mistakes drive any agent or editor to their stock rejection letter, telling the aspiring writer "Thanks, but this isn't for us," and leaving many to wonder what exactly it is that they're doing wrong. Veteran writing coach, developmental editor, and writing instructor Jessica Page Morrell will fill in the gaps in every rejection letter you've ever received. In Thanks, But This Isn't for Us, Morrell uses her years of experience to isolate the specific errors beginners make, including the pitfalls of unrealistic dialogue, failing to "show, not tell," and over-the-top plot twists. These are just a few of the problems that keep writers from breaking through with their work. Sympathetic and humane, but pulling no punches, Thanks, But This Isn't for Us shows writers precisely where they've gone wrong and how to get on the right track. In sixteen to-the-point chapters, with checklists, exercises, takeaway tips, and a glossary, Morrell helps readers transcend these mistakes so that they don't have to learn the hard way: with another rejection letter.

Book Summary:

Help students appreciate texts and write about them with conviction. Responding to a comprehension question is a surprisingly complex task. It draws on multiple skills: students must be able to read and analyze a text passage; consider what aspect of the text the question addresses; and then quickly and concisely write about their ideas, citing evidence to support them. Hence the prominence of constructed-response questions in standardized testing. In this refreshingly clear and upbeat guide, literacy consultant Nancy Boyles gives a step-by-step demonstration of how to help students achieve success with this task—and in the process of unpacking the steps involved, demonstrates how the instruction can inspire teachers’ creativity as well as deepen students’ literacy skills. Filled with ready-to-use scaffolds for every stage of instruction—sets of sample questions, anchor charts, cue cards, answer frames—this is a one-stop resource for teaching students how to organize their thoughts about what they’ve read, and then set them down in writing.

Carl Allen Hampton is a successful real estate developer in Detroit. Born in rural East Texas as the civil rights era ramped up, he spent most summers with his dad, Bradley, in Detroit. This story unpacks his early years growing up in an extended family and learning valuable life lessons. For some reason, his life seems to always get turned upside down. First was the divorce of his parents, Bradley and Rachel. This dovetails right into the breakup with his childhood girlfriend, Jackie Hunt. Things get worse as he is one of the kids helping to integrate Marshall public schools as a seventh grader. Life seems to settle down, and things seem to go smoothly for a while. He has a new girlfriend, Michelle Burns, who lives the next street over from Jackie. The summer before his senior year at Marshall High School, he’s in Detroit, working at a gas station. He bumps into Felicia Barnes, whom he rode ten-speed bikes with a couple of summers back. She and her friend Van Howard stop by the station where he works to buy gas for Van’s car. The city has worn him out, and he is so ready to go home. The day before he is to fly back to Marshall, he is locked up for grand theft auto! If he thought his life was upside down before he went to jail, the ride is about to get bumpier. Rachel is livid with Bradley when she realizes he has allowed him to drive the eleven hundred miles from Detroit to Marshall alone. He has problems with Michelle when she finds out a young lady named Pam Matthews, from Detroit, who attends Wiley College, made the trip with him. Then all hell breaks loose. This book has it all, romance, heartbreak, suspense, all set in rural East Texas and Detroit.

Book Summary:

US prime time television drama of the earlier broadcast era featured self-contained storylines and (mostly) amnesiac protagonists. This changed with the arrival of what television scholar Horace Newcomb termed cumulative narrative: Prime-time series of a new era adopted narrative features more typical for daytime soap opera, and leading characters began to remember where they came from. This study explores the organisational patterns and generic implications leading to the rise of cumulative storytelling. It also points to further venues of analysis for backstory narratives and diegetic memory in general.

Book Summary:

Small things add up: trillions of dollars of products applying nanotechnology have been marketed to consumers promising new medicines, strong packaging to protect goods from contamination, stronger eyelash mascara and long-lasting lipstick, construction materials for housing, cheaper energy, and new drugs to fight cancer. Nanotechnology applications to consumer products represent a huge slice of daily economic life, heralding a revolutionary age for science and technology. How can the benefits of nanotechnology be realized while protecting public health?

The pioneering, plain-language text of Dr. Ilise L. Feitshans, international health law scholar and former international civil servant, enables readers to move comfortably across disciplines and explore how nanotechnology can reshape both commerce and public health to improve daily life worldwide.

5 Deep-Dive Short Stories from the Heroes of the Order of Thaddeus Over the years, thousands of fans have been thrilled and entertained by Silas Grey, Celeste Bourne, Naomi Torres, and Matt Gapinski—catapulting the Order of Thaddeus series to the bestseller lists on Amazon for religious fiction, often launching as number-one new releases, and garnering raving and enthusiastic reviews. Along the way, these fans have gained a dose of insight into faith and been inspired for the journey. Now comes a collection of short stories from J. A. Bouma that dive deeper into our heroes’ backstories—plumbing the depths of their tragedies and triumphs with the same craft and care he has given to the page-turning action-adventure thrillers. First, Silas and his best friend find themselves on a mission in Iraq as community-relation managers for Uncle Sam—when something unexpected happens. Torres explores a complicated story we all can relate to at some level when we ask ourselves why we do the things we do, especially the things that hurt others and ourselves. In the third story, Celeste shares part of a past she would rather leave undiscovered. Gapinski retells some of his story to a special someone in the future, wondering how they will react. Finally, we return to Silas where he is grappling with the fallout from a fateful day—making a discovery that will change his life forever. Each of these stories have been revealed at different times in the novels, but are released for the first time as stand-alone stories to give new depth and meaning to these beloved characters. Read these deeper-dives into the lives of your favorite characters that have entertained and inspired for the journey. Perhaps you’ll find glimpses of your own story in their backstories.

Book Summary:

“The most complete and comprehensive guide to character I've ever read." Adam Croft Character is at the heart of every story. We love stories because we fall in love with characters, we want to see what happens to them and we want to see them experience hope and despair. International Emmy nominated writer, Mark Boutros, offers a guide to creating characters who are engaging, emotionally driven and memorable. With experience as a screenwriter, novelist, creative writing teacher and mentor, Mark shares a mixture of theory and creative writing exercises to get you thinking about the questions to have in your mind during character creation. A lot of stories are perfectly functional, hitting all the right beats, but often fall short due to a thin or obvious character. Problems people think are related to plot are often symptoms of a deeper issue with the characters. Mark highlights what is at the core of character, the importance of motivation, trauma, obstacles and how every little detail can enrich an experience for an audience and ultimately make people care. How do you get to know people? By asking questions and getting to know them so you move past the shallow. Do the same during character development and your story will be so much more engaging for it. Each chapter focuses on an aspect important to character development and ends with exercises so you can apply the concepts to your work and write better characters. The book includes: - Goals, desires, lessons - Stakes to your character’s goal - Character flaws - Developing your character’s voice and world view - Generating truthful obstacles - How to write anti-heroes and compelling villains - Character and personality traits - Common mistakes in character writing - Character research - A character questionnaire The majority of the ideas originate from the author’s screenwriting experience, but they apply to all forms of story, whether it be fiction writing or playwriting, because the focus is on what really makes a character stand out and memorable. The job of the writer is to deliver an emotional experience. Character is the heart of that. If you're looking for a book to help you to improve your screenplay writing, fiction writing, or play writing then this is for you. An invaluable tool for beginner and experienced writers. This is perfect for anyone interested in screenwriting books, fiction writing books, or character development books. Praise for The Craft of Character: “Would 100% recommend not only for beginners, but also for experienced writers looking to get to know their characters better. A bit like writer-character therapy.” reader review “Both the chapters and the exercises are easy to understand and get through. Mark Boutros clearly knows his stuff and seems happy to be able to help the reader, rather than becoming lecturing and elitist. The structure of the book also means that it is easy to dip back into, when you come across a specific problem, and as such it is a great little reference book, which any aspiring storyteller would benefit from.” reader review “Normally, I find myself arguing with the author of craft books, but here I would say 90% of what I read were things I either found helpful, or flat out agreed with whole heartedly and just needed a reminder on why these things are important. The exercises were a excellent touch, especially as someone who is teaching writing, it gave me ideas on what to do for my students.” reader review

After learning of the connection between emotional stress and physical ailments, Obermark developed a simple, noninvasive method for curing chronic musculoskeletal pain--no doctors or physical therapists required.

Book Summary:

The writing life is solitary and challenging, and it takes far more than creativity to become a commercial success. The Writer’s I Ching uses the ancient Chinese divination system to provide writers with help mastering the business of writing and choosing the most propitious times to take action. Because writing educators created the book, it also teaches the storyteller and non-fiction craft with lessons suitable for both beginners and seasoned professionals.This unique presentation of the I Ching features a complete deck of 64 cards bound into the book itself. The writer poses a question about how to proceed on a specific fiction or non-fiction project, negotiation, or business matter. He draws an I Ching card and turns to the proper page for the interpretation of that card. Many cases of writer’s block have been cured and flashes of insight gained through this simple technique. The I Ching dates back to before Christ and counts among its devotees Confucius, Albert Einstein, and Bob Dylan.

Book Summary:

Writers flock to National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) each November because it provides a procrastination-busting deadline. But only a fraction of the participants meet their goal. Denise Jaden was part of that fraction, writing first drafts of two subsequently published novels in that tight time frame. In Fast Fiction, she shows other writers how to do what she did, step-by-step, writer to writer. To ensure success, her program begins a month before the month of drafting. During this prep period writers think through plot, theme, characters, setting, etc. Then Jaden provides day-by-day coaching for the thirty-day drafting period. After writers “race to the finish,” they are not left high and dry. Jaden's “After the Draft” revision tips allow writers to determine if a draft is not just workable but compelling, so that they don't waste months or years developing it. Her camaraderie and skill allow Jaden to both instruct and inspire.

Book Summary:

In Trouble in Mind, neuropsychologist Jenni Ogden, author of Fractured Minds, transports the reader into the world of some of her most memorable neurological patients as she explores with compassion, insight, and vivid description the human side of brain damage. These are tales of patients who, as the result of stroke, brain tumor, car crash, or neurological disease, begin thinking and behaving strangely, and with their loved ones' support embark on the long journey to recovery, acceptance of disability and sometimes, death. There is Luke, the gang member who loses his speech but finds he can still sing his favorite blues number "Trouble in Mind," and HM, who teaches the world about memory and becomes the most studied single case in medical history. You will meet Julian, who misplaces his internal map of the human body, and Melody, a singer who risks losing her song when she undergoes brain surgery to cure her epilepsy. Then there is Kim with a severe head injury, and Sophie who has just enough time to put her house in order before Alzheimer's dementia steals her insight. For these and the many other patients whose stories are told in this book, the struggle to understand their disordered minds and disobedient bodies takes extraordinary courage, determination, and patience. For health professionals and researchers working with these patients, the ethical and emotional challenges can be as demanding as the intellectual and treatment decisions they make daily. Trouble In Mind is written in an accessible narrative style that is both accurate and intimate. It will be enjoyed by readers -- whether students, researchers, or professionals in mental health and neuroscience, patients with neurological disorders and their families, or general readers -- who want to learn more about brain disorders and the doctors who care for those who suffer them.
