SYNOPSIS : Dying isnโ€™t what it used to be. Wes Cooper was dead. Then he wasnโ€™tโ€”though heโ€™s not exactly alive, either. As an immortal not-ghost, he can transition between this world and the otherplane, which makes him the perfect thief for hire. For seventy years heโ€™s made a โ€œlivingโ€ returning items to their rightful owners, seeing his fair share of the bizarre in the process. But heโ€™s never witnessed murder. Until now. His latest mission brings him more than he bargained for: a very-dead actor who is definitely going to stay that way. Itโ€™s just Wesโ€™s luck that his ex-boyfriend, Detective Hudson Rojas, is assigned to the case. Hudson broke Wesโ€™s heart years agoโ€”and could again, given heโ€™s rocking a hot silver-fox look that shouldnโ€™t be legal. As they work together to track down the murderer before anyone else gets hurt, it becomes clear Wes and Hudson have unfinished business. And when a secret Hudsonโ€™s been keeping threatens more than just their happiness, it might mean the end of their not-life togetherโ€”permanently. This book is approximately 91,000 words

In the end Leo's little band must face hardened criminals in order to save themselves and prevent an American tragedy.

SYNOPSIS : Phil Collins pulls no punchesโ€”about himself, his life, or the ecstasy and heartbreak thatโ€™s inspired his music. In his much-awaited memoir, Not Dead Yet, he tells the story of his epic career, with an auspicious debut at age 11 in a crowd shot from the Beatlesโ€™ legendary film A Hard Dayโ€™s Night. A drummer since almost before he could walk, Collins received on the job training in the seedy, thrilling bars and clubs of 1960s swinging London before finally landing the drum seat in Genesis. Soon, he would step into the spotlight on vocals after the departure of Peter Gabriel and begin to stockpile the songs that would rocket him to international fame with the release of Face Value and โ€œIn the Air Tonight.โ€ Whether heโ€™s recalling jamming with Eric Clapton and Robert Plant, pulling together a big band fronted by Tony Bennett, or writing the music for Disneyโ€™s smash-hit animated Tarzan, Collinsโ€™s storytelling chops never waver. And of course he answers the pressing question on everyoneโ€™s mind: just what does โ€œSussudioโ€ mean? Not Dead Yet is Phil Collinsโ€™s candid, witty, unvarnished story of the songs and shows, the hits and pans, his marriages and divorces, the ascents to the top of the charts and into the tabloid headlines. As one of only three musicians to sell 100 million records both in a group and as a solo artist, Collins breathes rare air, but has never lost his touch at crafting songs from the heart that touch listeners around the globe. That same touch is on magnificent display here, especially as he unfolds his harrowing descent into darkness after his โ€œofficialโ€ retirement in 2007, and the profound, enduring love that helped save him. This is Phil Collins as youโ€™ve always known him, but also as youโ€™ve never heard him before.

SYNOPSIS : Part memoir, part sports adventure, Not Dead Yet tells the inspirational story of Phil Southerland's battle with Type 1 diabetes and how from diagnosis to sheer determination, Phil Southerland beat all odds and turned his diagnosis and his passion for cycling into a platform. From leading a Race Across America to now managing a world-class cycling program, his journey on and off the bike is changing the way the world views diabetes. When Phil Southerland was seven-months-old, he lost ten pounds in a week, his body was limp and his breathing slowed to what his mother called a "death rattle." Rushing him to the ER, she was informed that tiny Phil displayed the youngest case of diabetes on record in the world at that time. Blindness, kidney failure and death were all predicted for him by age twenty-five. Twenty-nine years later, not only is Phil alive and well but as the founder of Team Type 1, he and his team of championship cyclists โ€” many of them diabeticsโ€”have become health and fitness role models for people the world over. Together, they have taken on some of the most challenging endurance events in the world, including winning the Race Across Americaโ€”a grueling 3,000-mile endurance competitionโ€”twice. Today, Phil continues to lead Team Type 1 as its professional cycling team, among one of the top 30 teams in the world, races toward an invite to the world's top cycling event, the Tour de France in 2012. Leading the pack is a serious challenge for any athlete, but for Phil and his teammates, it presents two daily battles: one to stay in razor-sharp race-fit condition, the other, to stay alive. Not Dead Yet is Phil's powerful story: his account of his relationship with his mother, and how she struggled to keep him alive; growing up quickly in the New-Old South of the 1990s, learning at the tender age of 6 years old how to check his glucose and give himself injections; of how he fulfilled his dream of becoming a professional athlete using his team and the bike as a platform, inspiring thousands of individuals and families around the world who are battling diabetes to not just chase, but catch, their dreams.
