When Allison Glenn is sent to prison for a heinous crime, her reputation as Linden Falls' golden girl is lost forever. Her parents deny the existence of their once-perfect child, her former friends exult in her downfall, her sister, Brynn, faces whispered rumours every day in their small high school. But it's Brynn - shy, quiet Brynn - who carries the burden of what really happened that night. All she wants is to forget Allison and the past that haunts her. Now their legacy of secrets is focused on one little boy. If the truth is revealed, the consequences will be unimaginable for the adoptive mother who loves him, the girl who tried to protect him and the two sisters who hold the key to all that is hidden.

Greg Fleet's hilarious, heartbreaking account of the life-or-death battle for his soul For 30 years Greg Fleet has been one of Australia's most widely known and best loved comedians. For the same period, he's had a drug habit that has delivered him comedy and tragedy in equal parts. On the high road: a genius wit and prodigious work ethic take him from NIDA and Neighbours, to Shakespeare and award-winning theatre, and on to acclaim and adoration on stand-up stages all over the world. On the low road: a yearning for true love mutates into a downward spiral of addiction - a maelstrom of faked and near deaths, shared houses and needles, twisted trysts with cocaine and ice on the road to rock bottom... and, just maybe, redemption. From first gentle kiss to hate-fuelled wrecking ball, Greg Fleet has written the most mesmeric of memoirs - part guilty pleasure, part sweet poison. These things happen ... PRAISE FOR THESE THINGS HAPPEN "for all its deadpan style this is a cautionary tale ... about drug addiction, being rocked by life and salvaging the things you love." The Saturday Age "These Things Happen strikes a rare balance, tackling a difficult subject with redemptive humour but never hiding from the gravity of it." Irvine Welsh

We are approaching the last days at breakneck speed, yet multitudes of people are oblivious to it because they do not believe the Bible is credible. Join author Dave Gaffney as he exposes the weakness of dissenters' opposition to the Bible while offering real hope based on the truth of things to come. Dave believes the Bible is more than just a collection of stories; it is a guide to the past, present, and future. In These Things Must Happen, Dave answers questions of biblical reliability, providing proof that the Bible can and should be trusted. He then delves deep into biblical study and the warnings of Daniel, Paul, Jesus and John to illustrate how past and present events will shape the future. Expounding on such topics as America's Christian heritage, the mark of the beast, and the identity of the antichrist, Dave gives straightforward details of what America must do in preparation for perilous times ahead. Presented in five parts—foundational background information, what was, what is, what is to come, and what we should do now—These Things Must Happen is a must-read for anyone who has questions about the end times.

“Anyone can write a blog post, but not everyone can get it liked thirty-five thousand times, and not everyone can get seventy-five thousand subscribers. But the reason we’ve done these things isn’t because we’re special. It’s because we tried and failed, the same way you learn to ride a bike. We tried again and again, and now we have an idea how to get from point A to point B faster because of it.” Three short years ago, when Chris Brogan and Julien Smith wrote their bestseller, Trust Agents, being interesting and human on the Web was enough to build a significant audience. But now, everybody has a platform. The problem is that most of them are just making noise. In The Impact Equation, Brogan and Smith show that to make people truly care about what you have to say, you need more than just a good idea, trust among your audience, or a certain number of fol­lowers. You need a potent mix of all of the above and more. Use the Impact Equation to figure out what you’re doing right and wrong. Apply it to a blog, a tweet, a video, or a mainstream-media advertising cam­paign. Use it to explain why a feature in a national newspaper that reaches millions might have less impact than a blog post that reaches a thousand passionate subscribers. Consider the phenomenally successful British singer Adele. For most musicians, onstage banter basically consists of yelling “Hello, Cleveland!” But Adele connects with her audience, pausing between songs to discuss a falling-out with her friends, or the drama of a break up. Each of these moments comes off as if she were talking directly with you, and you can easily relate. Adele has Impact. As the traditional channels for marketing, selling, and influencing disappear and more people inter­act mainly online, the very nature of attention is changing. The Impact Equation will give you the tools and metrics that guarantee your message will be heard.
