New Book Release: Breaking From the Past

Breaking From the Past by Diana DeRicci

Is Kyle willing to risk his heart to save the ranch he called home?

Kyle Steppen’s life has gone to hell. Betrayed by his employer, he’s left holding the emotional shards of his soul as well as the few remaining strings to a failing ranch that has been home for more than seven years and he’s running out of time to save it before the tax man comes for his due.

Expecting a woman on his doorstep to help unravel the financial quagmire, he’s completely cut off at the knees by Adrian Balderas, a brilliant financial mind and a rapier wit to go with it inside one of the most beautiful and delicious-looking men he’s ever set his eyes upon.

Kyle is broken and broke. He’s not putting his hopes into any one wish, not salvaging his home, and he can’t even think about his heart.

Or can he?

New Book Release: For the Record

For the Record -- The Unique Success Story of the GSCCCA

The Georgia Superior Courts Clerks’ Cooperative Authority is one of the most unique state organizations in America. While other states provide some of the same services, Georgia was the first state to offer as many services through one online portal—property tax records, deeds, notary documents, and much more—and at no cost to the taxpayers. From the beginning it was the determination of a handful of Superior Court clerks to convince every other colleague in Georgia to sign on to a new way of doing things—no easy task with 159 different offices. County by county, the organizers trooped around the state, showing the clerks that not only would they become more efficient, but that they would neither cede control of their vital documents nor lose any revenue. The task for our writer was to bring to life a difficult and complicated legislative story, showing the personalities, will, and ingenuity of the GSCCCA officers, employees, and county court clerks.

Tehillim by R. Yosef Marcus

Tehillim with commentary from the Talmud, Midrash, Kabbalah, Classic commentators and the Chasidic masters
Tehillim . For simple poetic genius, for pathos, sweetness and heartfelt piety, King David’s Book of Psalms is unique.

The Psalms are songs of praise to the Creator, speaking of His greatness, goodness and mercy, as well as of His power and justice. The Psalms reflect the full spectrum of life’s experiences, both of the individual and of the Jewish nation collectively.

No wonder than that throughout the ages, Psalms has served as a boundless source of inspiration, courage and hope.

Anthologized from hundreds of commentators, classic to obscure, this work will allow Tehillim readers to bring newly-found inspiration and meaning to their daily, weekly and monthly recitations.

The commentary is rounded off by an incisive Introduction, bibliography and index. The physical appearance is likewise enhanced by original artwork, two-color printing and an elegant deluxe binding.
