"Addicted" the novel:
For successful African-American businesswoman Zoe Reynard, finding the pleasure she wants, the way she wants it, is not worth the risk of losing everything she has: marriage to the man she has loved since childhood, a thriving company, three wonderful children. But Zoe feels helpless in the grip of an overpowering addiction...to sex. Finding a compassionate woman therapist to help her, Zoe finally summons the courage to tell her torrid story, a tale of guilt and desire as shocking as it is compelling. From the sensitive artist with whom she spends stolen hours on rumpled sheets to the rough and violent man who draws her toward destruction,Zoe is a woman desperately searching for fulfillment -- and something darker, deeper, and perhaps deadly. As her life spins out of control and her sexual escapades carry her toward a dangerous choice, Zoe is racing against time to uncover the source of her "fatal attraction" -- as chilling secrets tumble forth from the recesses of a woman's mind, and perilous temptations lead toward a climax that can threaten her sanity, her marriage...and her life.

:LiL Zane Biography:::
Young and restless, 17-year old microphone phenomenon Lil' Zane has got big plans. Having proven last year with R&B macks 112 that he can take you "Anywhere", the teen rap threat has resurfaced after an intense bidding war and has focused his sighs on Young World; The Future, his hotly anticipated debut album on World Wide Entertainment/Priority.
When people hear my album I want them to say that I basically took them on a ride," says Zane about his first LP. "I show people every aspect of life. I say some bad things that I've done and witnessed some good things that I've done. But the good outweigh the bad. I'm young and a lot of things I talk about on the album are things that older people may experience. But my mom once told me I got an old soul."
Born in a tough section of Yonkers, New York, but raised throughout Atlanta since the age of seven, Lil' Zane grew up on both soul rap. "The first song I ever learned was "Before I Let Go" by Frankie Beverly & Maze, " he recalls. "That was a song I used to dance to and just sing all day when I was younger."
It was about age 10 when Zane, inspired by the kiddie rap of Another Bad Creation (ABC) and Kris Kross, got more serious about his eventual career and started rehearsing with his cousin. A year later, the aspiring talent beat a case of stage fright and began entering local Atlanta talent shows. Kevin Wales, owner of World Wide Entertainment and the man who discovered the immensely successful artists Another Bad Creation, Monica, and 112, attended one such performance. He was immediately blown away by then literally little Zane.

Les is the President of Landes & Associates, specializing in aligning marketing communications with employee engagement. His blog is titled Inside Out, which is how you build brands, sustainable brands, from the inside out. That starts with employees and their engagement, their passion and commitment to their brand’s promises.
Les writes that he’s always felt a longing to get at the heart - the essential elemental truths- of what gets people tuned in, turned on, and eager to go the extra mile for the mutual benefit of themselves and the organizations they work for. I’m convinced that understanding those truths will help people ... tap into the full-blown potential of employee engagement.
While writing his book he discovered his single equation: the secret to employee engagement lies not merely in our capacity to imagine and choose, but in understanding how those qualities are inseparably interrelated.
Les writes his book as a business fable with two main characters. A searcher and a guide, a student and a teacher. The teacher guides the student through his journey of understanding that what engages employees is what separates employees from mere cogs. That’s imagination and free will. The power to see possibilities, to imagine a different future and the opportunity with resources and support to pursue it.
I can’t wait. Come join us.
