Blood Tinsel

Whether recounting conversations with Lou Reed, giving us the inside story about Rocky Horror or describing a fateful meeting with Patrick White, Jim Sharman casts a brilliant story of the people and events that have shaped the times.

Blood   Tinsel

'Jim Sharman is one of Australia's visionary greats: low-brow, high-brow, pop yet classical, fearless and fun.' Baz Luhrmann Blood and Tinsel is a stunning self-portrait-lyrical, wry, smart and uncompromising-of one of the most daring Australian directors. Jim has perched ringside at the carnival of his own times and it's a hot ticket! 'The Sharman/Shaman/Showman firmament twinkles with galaxies as diverse as Rocky Horror, Hair, discovering Kubrick, Lou Reed, Weimar cabaret. He made Australian creativity hip and original and international when it really mattered.' Geoffrey Rush In Blood and Tinsel, Jim Sharman takes us on an epic personal journey from his colourful childhood in his father's boxing troupe to Tokyo, London, Berlin and Sydney via the international successes of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Hair and Jesus Christ Superstar. Whether recounting conversations with Lou Reed, giving us the inside story about Rocky Horror or describing a fateful meeting with Patrick White, Jim Sharman casts a brilliant story of the people and events that have shaped the times. Blood and Tinsel ranges from the rough and ready world of outback Australia in the fifties, where boxers and panto dames shared the stage, to the cultural explosions in which Sharman played a part. Blood and Tinsel is a remarkable story about Australia. It is also a moving tribute to a family legendary in the entertainment stakes.

Tinsel

Sofia Kendrick has always cherished her tiara. As the youngest daughter of a wealthy New York family, she’s lived the life of an American princess. But after two scandalous divorces and a breakup smear her name across the society rags, the shine from her crown has dulled. People call her superficial, even gaudy. She’s nothing more than tinsel. Desperate for escape and starving for peace, Sofia heads to Montana for a holiday weekend with her brother. But she doesn’t get the relaxing vacation she planned. Instead, she’s put to work in a bar alongside Dakota Magee—a man who does not want her help. A man who is set on teaching her a few lessons about real life and hard work. But Sofia has a couple of life lessons of her own to teach. Like how to fall in love. ***** "Brimming with emotion, depth, and all the feels, Devney Perry hits all the right notes with a feel-good story about love, identity, and family, and proves once more that she’s a writer we all need to be reading right now." - Natasha is a Book Junkie “From start to finish, this was a captivating love story with deep emotions that truly made me care for the characters, and the beautiful writing kept me glued to every page!” – Aestas Book Blog "One of my favorite books EVER!" - USA Today Bestselling Author, Natasha Madison “This story was emotional, unique and deeply moving.” – Shh Mom’s Reading “This book is everything.

Under the Blood Banner

This story was experienced by Eric Kreye as a child. Although the story is directed primarily to Junior boys and girls, the hearts of many young parents have been captured as well. The authors have attempted to instill values, such as loyalty to family, allegiance to country, honesty, integrity, and faithfulness to God. Eric Spent some time with his father in Germany prior to the writing of this story to get an adult's view of Hitler's philosophy. Also he wanted to make sure that his memories of World War II were as accurate as possible-- to make the story not only interesting, but meaningful to the young reader. Eric's primary purpose for sharing his personal story, regardless of the age of the reader, is to show how this great and amazing God of the universe carefully guards and guides each person on Planet Earth! His second purpose in sharing his experiences is to help counteract the false belief today among some that the atrocities against the Jews during World War II are pure fabrication. Finally, he wants to encourage every reader to do whatever is possible to stop the ever-increasing violence, oppression, abuse, hate, and immorality in our flawed, yet beautiful world. There is a better way. Peace, security, and happiness are possible through the grace and power of Jesus Christ.

Tinsel in a Tangle

He could swear his tailbone creaked right before two fat ruby drops of blood fell
to the puke coloured flooring between his feet. He straightened up again and
used the gingerbread men tea towel he'd swiped from the kitchen to mop his
head.

Tinsel in a Tangle

A Christmas story that packs a punch... It's Shelby Yule's job to make sure the office Christmas party was a success. That means no dodgy Kris Kringle presents, no one gets too sloshed, and there are definitely no dance floor injuries. Never did she think she'd have to worry about the shy new guy, her inappropriate crush, starting a fight. Adam Tide can't help it if his job as the lead coder means he has a better relationship with his project management software than his human colleagues, but that doesn't mean he's unaware of Felix, head of HR, and the way he treats Shelby. Adam has suffered a whole twelve months of Felix being a dick and after one over–warm beer he just can't take it anymore. Decking Felix lands Adam in the Emergency Room, and likely the unemployment line, but since Shelby's New Year's resolution is to go after what she wants most, there's still a chance this season will be jolly.

The relation of the nearctic and neotropical faunae at their point of junction is as yet a problem not fully solved. Various important features of the fauna of Texas require us to place it within the Nearctic realm; for although it possesses a number of genera which are common to this realm and the Neotropical, there are numerous genera which belong to the former exclusively, and very few that belong to the latter alone.
