The Fey worlds are very much alive among us; even though we may have forgotten their existence, and know very little about them. This is the journey of one of those distant homeworlds, which the Fey have inhabited since the dawn of time. It begins to tell the tale one thousand years after King Balor tried to eliminate the offspring of his daughter Eithne, simply because it was scribed he would die at the hands of one of them. It tells the tale through their Shadow Scrolls; starting with the Shapeshifter, Sibrey, as she reveals what its like to live amongst its creatures; while along the way those caught up in her flight from the Dragonlord sent to retrieve her come in contact with the Goddesses, Witches, Selkies, Elementals, dark-Sidhe, and one determined Wood Sprite that simply annoys everyone as she flees for her life and they rush to save her from her destiny and the Sling that hunts her. The epic saga is the first of many novels about the Tuatha De`Danann’s army of Aelves, while the author weaves a tale of fantasy and mythology that will draw you in, making you remember the tale of the evil King and the repercussions which have been left on this planet in the wake of his demise. Read on as it continues to draw the storyline across the galaxy of shiftpoint doorways, time travel and the realm of the goddess Sopdet.

Poll Haven

Introvert Mart McKinnon works hard on his small ranch in Alberta’s south-western Rockies. His independence isolates him, as does a preference for horses rather than wheels and classic rock rather than country music. With his focus on raising his cattle and keeping the community rangelands secure during grazing season, his bachelor’s existence is quiet, dusty, and fairly predictable—until the day his curmudgeonly patrolling partner is killed in an unseen run-in with ATVs while on routine fence duty. Mart attempts to uncover a recent discovery hinted at by the old man and begins to feel that he, too, has become the target of sinister motives from several possible sources. As his suspicions rise so does his interest in his high-school heart throb, the beautiful Becky Sorenson, who has arrived on the scene after a 10-year absence. When he and his best friend are both given signals that she is sweet on them, rivalry threatens their relationship, tempers flare, and complications ensue. Pursuing his mentor’s killers on Poll Haven’s wild slopes, Mart faces peril when he is trapped in an early fall blizzard, and battles an inner turmoil that will change his life forever.

Magic Potion

A woman has invited 25 women and 25 men to come and listen to her talk about her book and ask them whether or not to publish it. In a small square room, she finds 23 men have arrived. She stays outside the room and speaks to them telepathically about relationships, honouring the female principle and the meaning of life. What does the story of the Garden of Eden mean? Later she comes into the room and educates them about the role of women and raising the men’s consciousness. She embodies light and takes them into another mental realm. She tests their ideas, surprises and shocks them to help them evolve. One of them finds that the book on the lectern is blank. In the end we realize she hasn’t written a book, but lived it.

Maghzi states: This book is one woman's vision which has been reduced to a readable form. This book is about a woman who raises her voice on behalf of those women who have suffered through the centuries! This book is about cutting selfish self's rough and uneven edges in order to become wiser and smarter to circle the wiser and smarter beloved!

The Silent Sixtieth 100 Years On: The Story of the 60th Canadian Overseas Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force, In the Great War

The Silent Sixtieth, is the story of the 60th Canadian Overseas Battalion, in World War One.

Originally begun simply as research into the author’s ancestry, The Silent Sixtieth evolved into a history of the 60th Canadian Overseas Battalion in World War One. The book details the forming of the battalion in Montreal in the summer of 1915, follows it through training and into France, where it fought in some of the defining battles of Canada’s First World War effort: Ypres, Mount Sorrel, the Somme, and Vimy Ridge. The Silent Sixtieth chronicles the struggles that eventually became one of the foundational experiences of the Canadian historical identity, and does so with both an eye for detail and a personal touch. By the end of the war, 39% of mobilized Canadian troops were casualties. 2015 is the 100th anniversary of the

founding of the Battalion.

Clean Break: Karen Stewart's Guide to Divorce

"When it comes to divorce, there's the old way - and there's a better way. I know because I learned the hard way."

Her experience both personally and professionally led her to believe that there needs to be a better way to end a marriage. Karen’s ideas and vision lead to the creation of Fairway Divorce, this book and a passion for advocating through media - for changing the way divorce happens.

Reviving Canadian Democracy

The Downward Spiral

of Canadian Democracy

Democratic government in Canada has been declining – at an accelerating rate. The House of Commons is ineffective. The Senate is not accountable and is scandal-ridden. Decision making is increasingly centralized in the largely invisible staff in the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO). Many who have been active participants have turned off and tuned out because of understandable disillusionment. The result is that actions that undermine democracy can now be taken without much fear of reprisal.

This book explains how our democratic governing machinery and operating principles have been undermined and what can be done to reverse this downward slide. It is intended to enrage you and then engage you – in the fight to restore and to enhance our democratic institutions and practices.

Windflower's Song: My Soul's Journey Through 1000 Years

Spanning one thousand years, three continents and several countries the writer’s soul experiences a dozen lives. Some are short and brutal, some long and fruitful. Always her soul is presented with lessons to be learned.

These lives encompass many of the emotions, situations and tragedies that define the human condition. Love and hate, compassion and empathy, murder, rape, suicide, abandonment, war, betrayal, unrequited and lost love, drowning, suffocation, depression, plague – it’s all there.

By embracing hypnotic past life regression, the writer has learned to forgive many past wrongs and also allow others the opportunity to forgive her soul for wrongs committed. She has been able to fix karma with a number of other souls who have incarnated with her again in this lifetime.

By enlarging upon the nugget of “truth” gleaned during regression, she provides the reader with a series of vignettes that are evocative of the time and place in which she was living. These short stories are followed with frank examinations of how the information she has been shown has helped her, allowing her a compassionate understanding of many of the more difficult and challenging relationships she has experienced in this lifetime.

Part fiction but largely autobiographical, this is a very personal reflection on the experience of hypnotic past life regression and the healing that it can provide. It has a universality that will be accepted by those who believe in reincarnation and just enjoyed by those who do not.

My Pen and I

The Author has written re the memories and moments of a young woman as related and experienced. It begins with the earliest memories and continues to take the readers through a journey of culture, adolescence, sexuality, wilderness adventure, and loss. It is a story of quest in terms of self discovery, self fulfillment, and self determination. It is a presentation of the influences that have occurred and shaped and on occasion misshaped this life. My Pen and I depicts the feminine through the character, through interpersonal interactions and with nature as the matriarchal in a continual experience of lesson, joy, abandonment, and success. It will capture the readers with the story of risk and plight, literally fire and fish and instil within them a sense of the unreality in life’s realities.
