Dr. Nikki Lang was born into this world destined to be a maverick. Although her parents couldn't afford to send her to college, she went anyway, paying her own way through Temple University. She married in her last year of college and gave birth to her first child, followed two years later by her second. Three years later when her marriage failed, she retained custody of her children and entered medical school as a single mother. When she finished her training, she started her own family practice in Center City Philadelphia in 1981. She was named one of the best physicians in the United States by Ladies Home Journal, Town and Country, and Top Doctors. Dr. Lang wrote her first book, A Novel Diet, as an extension of her desire to teach, and like the rest of her life, it was unconventional. Publishers told her, "We only publish fiction!" or "We only publish nonfiction!" "I wouldn't know how to market it!" said another publisher. Of course, that didn't stop her. View Guest page

It's a big welcome to another of the Class of 2K13 in the form of debut author Tamera Will Wissinger. Tamera grew up in a fishing family. Sometimes they fished from shore and other times they took their boat out on a lake. Tamera loved being with her family and being near the water. It gave her plenty of chances to see her family compete to catch the biggest fish or the most fish. Those good memories sparked her imagination in her debut book "Gone Fishing"
THE GARDEN OF SIN - ILLUSTRATOR TYLER FARAONE
The Garden of Sin is set up very much like a children's book, or fairy tale book, where every page is illustrated, with writing on the left side and illustrations on the right, some being double page spreads.
All of the illustrations throughout the book were drawn traditionally by hand with pencil and paper, and none of the images inside the book are digital.
The Garden of Sin takes the reader on a journey straight through Hell, reminiscent of Dante's Inferno. As Virgil guided Dante through the Inferno, the reader is guided by a mysterious cloaked figure known as The Shadow… your tour guide and narrator.
On the voyage, The Shadow brings the reader deeper and deeper, through many different levels of Hell, each representing one of The Seven Deadly Sins.
From The Wood of the Damned, where the journey begins, through The Abyss of Lust, to The Slaughterhouse of the Gluttons, down to the deepest part of Hell. The Shadow judges the sinners, while you, the reader, judge yourself.
Is your conscience clean enough to face The Shadow?
