Manuscript 1: The Ultimate Guide to Shipping Container Homes
Out of all the possible building materials available for homes, the last thing you might expect to hear about is shipping containers - yes, the same steel, rectangular containers seen on trucks and ships going across the world to deliver goods.
While it might seem like a new trend, the truth is, shipping containers have been used for nearly two decades and have transformed into various multi-purpose living and working spaces. What are some of the reasons why the best-selling author Matt Brown among so many others advocate the use of this type of structure for a ...

Inspired by Art: A Peek at Bathsheba is a collection of art throughout the ages, around the story of David. This volume focuses on the most torrid love affair ever told: David's forbidden love affair with Bathsheba and his attempt to cover it up.
These amazing sculptures, paintings, etchings, and manuscripts inspired the author to write The David Chronicles, a series of three volumes, the second of which is A Peek at Bathsheba, where she imagines the love affair and the ensuing scandal. Besides being an artist and having worked as an architect, she taught art history, and this collection served as the basis for a research course analyzing the contrasts in viewpoints around the biblical story.
This collection is arranged not by artist, nor by artistic style or era, but rather by the story moment-by-moment, blow-by-blow, as imagined by various artists. Rembrandt, Michelangelo, Chagall, Picasso, and Jan Steen to name but a few.

First, Slash wrote his memoir. Then Duff wrote one, too. We even heard from one of the GNR roadies in his own (unauthorized) memoir.
But now it's time to read all about Guns and f'ng Roses... from a fan's perspective. Are you a fan of Guns N' f'ng Roses? Well, Matt Burns is f'ng too.
And he's written a Kindle single about his 30-year GNR love affair, one that all starts when he first sees the "Welcome to the Jungle" video on MTV in 1988 and culminates with finally seeing the newly-reunited GNR live in 2016.
What happens in between? Tears, drugs, booze, womanizing, dolphins, weddings, funerals, night trains, rocket queens, a T-1000 robot that just keeps coming... and a whole lotta jungle f'ng fever, that's what.
Read how Burns became so obsessed with Guns N' Roses that he listened to nothing but the 'Appetite' album, from first note to last, for a year straight.
How at the tender age of seven, he nearly gave his grandmother a heart attack by screaming, "Nanny, do YOU know where ...

"It's not that I don't love you, and my tears are yet to dry. But you can't go back and forth forever and we've already said goodbye."
Through these words, a young poet unearths his musical soul while severing ties with the woman he loves after her stunning betrayal. Unknowingly, in writing this ballad of liberation, he will soon evolve as one of the fastest rising stars on the pop music landscape.
The year is 1991; the place, New York City. Here we meet Johnny Elias, a college student from Brooklyn with boundless adoration for two things in life: timeless popular music, and the heart of a sweet, complicated young woman who is clearly out of his league.
Megan Price not only is the object of Johnny's affection, but also the only daughter of New York's most powerful PR woman: the indomitable Katherine Price.
Projecting that her daughter's boyfriend will never live up to the family standard, Katherine cleverly perpetrates a series of duplicitous schemes to rid Johnny from her ...

With an I.Q. not much higher than "Forest Gump," Michael seems to have lived the dream. From high school dropout, to a world traveler, to an author!
This book started out as a journal for my grandkids. I wanted them to know who I really was. (Who really knows their grandparents?) Currently, they only know me as "Papa." I like that. I like being a papa. I like being known as the chubby little gray haired old man who works in the movie business. One grandchild, Jessica, once said to me, "Papa, you're not like my friends' papas, you're a little weird, but a cool weird." She then told me that I reminded her of Peter Pan, the boy who never grew up - just an older version now. I like that as well. My other grandkids, Rumor and Riley, called me "Willy Wonka". I believe this has something to do with the vast amounts of candy and sugar drinks I always seem to ply them with. (I do hope my kids have good dental insurance!)
Square Head is a funny, intoxicating, fast read.
