Little Louie

Louie is one special dog. His tongue likes to hang out of his mouth, and his extra-long legs make him pretty clumsy. Still, Louie dreams of being a champion dog like his brothers. Louie spends most of his time playing with his favorite toy—his ball. He can bounce it and toss it, and soon he hopes to balance on it. One day, Louie goes to cheer on his brothers at the dog show and slips on his ball into the center of the stage. But what will the crowd make of this little dog with not-so-little dreams? Little Louie is the fictional story of a very real rescue dog that captured the heart and imagination of writer/illustrator Kathryn Finney. Through Finney’s masterful and infectiously cheerful paintings, Louie teaches kids to celebrate their strengths and to never give up their dreams. Everyone who reads this book will want to give lovable little Louie a forever home.

The R46 and Little Louie

Most women at different stages in their lives—and for different reasons—want to be married, are married, have been married, or are between marriages. Why Men Marry and Why Men Don't is a tell-all self-testing book that titillates, entertains and educates the shrewd single woman, and the curious and courageous man. It's a non-scientific parlor game to help you determine why certain men marry and others don't, define the type of man you want to marry and discern the ones you don't. Also disconnect the traits causing you to attract the wrong kind and divine definitive questions to ask men along the way. Then consider what could happen if you never find the man that you want to marry but choose to stay superiorly single. This fresh, funny, feel-good must read, contains a calculating choose-a-husband system instead of a catch-and-corner any man scheme. It gives the husband hunting woman a path to new found clarity and a personalized shopping list to make her the "chooser" instead of the passive "chosen." Why Men Marry and Why Men Don't should be required reading for the clever contemporary woman in choosing the consummate husband.

“HA yerself, ya little cheater. Take that.” Louie tapped the top of the deck with his
pudgy, little cartoon index finger — and slowly turned over his fourth card —

Ordinary Heroes

Ordinary Heroes recreates the sights, sounds and textures of a world gone by - a world of freedom, innocence and mystery - where boys leave home at 6:00 in the morning and return home for dinner - a world of sleep outs and midnight escapades. 14 year old Randy's life begins as a near-death experience. But - cerebral palsy aside - by 1959, he loves Sandra Dee, Sandy Koufax, the Dodgers, Wolfman Jack - and a girl named Daisy Clover - in that order. Things begin to pop when the boys poke around the crumbling Jefferson place and discover perplexing evidence - pointing to something very different than the official version of their neighborhood hero's death - confusing clues, threatening notes, phone calls - and violence. If 19 year old Scotty Jefferson's death is an "open and shut, police slam dunk" - why all the fuss? Ordinary Heroes salutes the goodness of boys everywhere!

Unto the Daughters

Karen Tintori thought she knew her family tree. Her grandmother Josie had emigrated from Sicily with her parents at the turn of the century. They settled in Detroit, and with Josie's nine siblings, worked to create a home for themselves away from the poverty and servitude of the old country. Their descendants were proud Italian-Americans. But Josie had a sister nobody spoke of. Her name was Frances, and at age sixteen she fell in love with a young barber. Her father wanted her to marry an older don in the neighborhood mafia---a marriage that would give his sons a leg up in the mob. But Frances eloped with her barber, and when she returned home a married woman, her fate was sealed. Even eighty years and two generations later, Frances was not spoken of, and her memory was suppressed. Unto the Daughters is a historical mystery and family story that unwraps the many layers of family, honor, memory, and fear to find an honor killing in turn-of-the-century Detroit. Tracing the history and insular world of Italian immigrants back to the old country, Karen Tintori shows what they came from, what they hoped for, and how the hopes and dreams of America fell far short for her great-aunt Frances. "Nearly every family has a skeleton in its closet, an ancestor who "sins" against custom and tradition and pays a double price -- ostracism or worse at the time, and obliteration from the memory of succeeding generations. Few of these transgressors paid a higher price than Frances Costa, who was brutally murdered by her own brothers in a 1919 Sicilian honor killing in Detroit. And fewer yet have had a more tenacious successor than Frances's great-niece, Karen Tintori, who refused to allow the truth to remain forgotten. This is a book for anyone who shares the convinction that all history, in the end, is family history." -Frank Viviano, author of Blood Washes Blood and Dispatches from the Pacific Century "Switching back and forth between rural Sicily and early 20th century Detroit, Unto the Daughters reads like a nonfiction version of the film Godfather II--if it had been told from the point of view of a female Corleone. In exploring her own family's secret history, Karen Tintori gives voice not just to her victimized aunt but to all Italian-American daughters and wives silenced by the power of omerta. Half gripping true-crime story, half moving family memoir, Unto the Daughters is both fascinating and frightening, packed with telling details and obscure folklore that help bring the suffocating world of a Mafia family to life." --Eleni N. Gage, author of North of Ithaka

Turbulence at 67 Inches

Turbulence at 67 Inches is a life story and a rant in one. The book follows the life of acclaimed poet Howard Camner. The writing is at once brutally honest, very funny, at times heartbreaking, and often inspiring. The journey begins during the Bicentennial. It is America’s 200th birthday. Camner has just been awarded the title of “Most Artistic Body of 1976” in a body painting contest. But at the moment he is sitting in the shallow end of the Atlantic Ocean about to run naked through a very crowded beach. He is not doing it for fun. He is doing it because he has no choice. Seconds after his run begins, several angry men are giving chase in an attempt to kill him. So sets the stage for a life that becomes one wild problem after another. There are encounters with the most bizarre characters this planet has to offer, including a talking dog, a guy who claims that he and his invisible companion are on the lam from a police force from another planet, a woman who fries up Manhattan sewer rats for dinner, and the Devil himself; just to name some of the saner ones. After the streaking episode, which turned into a run for his life, the book hurls us back to the early 1960s where as a young boy the author is trying to figure out who he is. Finding himself in direct competition with the next door neighbor’s talking dog, the boy transforms himself into several memorable characters, including a werewolf, a superhero, a mad scientist, a fake musician, and a secret agent. All of these lead to disastrous moments. Still he plods along, convinced that he is destined for...something. 17 proves to be a difficult and pivotal year with the loss of his grandfather who taught him wisdom the hard way and that one should always wear socks when kissing a girl. Devastated by the loss, the author threatens to use martial arts that he doesn’t know how to use on a future homicidal drug kingpin, becomes a criminal himself, gets repeatedly attacked by a man running for public office, and loses his virginity to an outfielder’s mitt. Needing an outlet other than sex with baseball gloves, he finds that he has a knack for poetry. In 1979 at the age of 22 he heads for New York City to take his place in the literary world. Somehow it clicks and he finds his voice as the headliner with the West End Poetry Troupe. New York provides several narrow escapes, a taste of fame, collisions with a vast array of human oddities, and an on-stage confrontation with a waiter that left the waiter possibly dead and our hero in hiding. This led to a breakdown and a three month period of seclusion with no human contact whatsoever. Snatched from death by his father, he returns to Miami for a brief stint as a beach bum and falls for a Midwestern girl. Following her to Chicago, his life is threatened by her father, so he returns to Miami and meets another girl who makes his life a nightmare because he bought her a Nutty Buddy ice-cream cone instead of the cherry Popsicle she wanted. Narrowly escaping being murdered by a transvestite hooker, he heads for Los Angeles to be rich and famous. His screenplay “Duck, Duck, Goose” creates havoc in Hollywood causing an affair between two Hollywood producers and the break up of a prominent management team. Distraught over the mess his screenplay has caused he turns to acting, falling under the protection of Hell’s Angels on one film and ruining a $30,000 scene in another. He befriends the Mayor of Munchkinland, takes up with a psychotic bitch in Beverly Hills, and risks his life to save the lives of some hummingbirds. Feeling confident after rescuing the hummingbirds, he creates and hosts the worst talk show in the history of television where he interviews Death among other offbeat celebrities, and soon embarks on a mission to seek out celebrity ghosts. Avoiding fame and fortune like no one else has, Camner exits Los Angeles and returns to Florida where he almost gets murdered in a swamp. After a confrontation with a large trigger-happy c
