The Home Seller's Second Opinion First
45,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Have you ever questioned the ridiculously expensive full-priced listing fee charged by Realtors® and Brokers? Have you ever thought that very little work was being done for this huge sum? Or, have you ever thought that the entire process, whether buying, selling, or borrowing was something very like a racket? If so, then you are not alone. The Home Seller's Second Opinion First is an insider's look at, and a consumer's way through, all of the horses**t that surrounds the buying, selling, and owning of a home. At one level the book is a simple how-to; the book teaches you how to negotiate a better contract with your Realtor®; the book teaches you how to analyze your loan; and the book teaches you how to analyze your local real estate market. At another level The Home Seller's Second Opinion First is a rigorous analysis of the conflicts of interest that permeate the marketplace and hinder the American Dream. Here are the responses of a few of the people that have been taught the contents of the book. 'It was easy! I fired my Realtors® and hired another one in less than an hour. You saved me $4000!' Pam. Colorado Springs, CO 'First I wanted to punch you, then I wanted to hug you.' Susan. Los Angeles, CA 'I think you saved our marriage.' Jennifer. Denver, CO In many aspects of our society, choice is merely illusory, and the consumer is only given fake options: The blue store or the orange store? This book gives the homeowner real choice by providing real information and real options available to the buying, selling, and owning public.

A Slaughter of Angels (The Midnight Agency, #0)
1,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

I'm Rian MacCaren, owner of the Midnight Agency, and I deal in supernatural cases no one wants or is equipped to handle. Being Nephilim, part-angel, and part-human, you'd think it would give me an edge on the bad guys. That is not always the case… A killer has set his eyes upon the city of Fort Collins, Colorado. Exotic Dancers are showing up dead; strung up like puppets and with very few leads as to who is doing it. The situation gets heated when I am able to see the through the eyes of the victims. To make matters worse than they are, this same killer wants me dead, and if he has to lead me into a trap to do so, he will. Sometimes, even with the blood of an angel, you don't have a prayer…

The Rain - Part 2 (The Rain Trilogy, #2)
1,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Russell is dying, and Tanner must somehow get them both out into the rain sea, and head 520 miles south to Colorado. But alone, it seems impossible. Will Russell survive? Will they make it to Leadville? Find out in the exciting part 2 of the post-apocalyptic story, THE RAIN. BLURB: Exposure, pruned hands, and infection. But since, Rapid City, it's the face eaters too. And the crack in the canoe that's growing. And the ice I think I see on the water. Russell thinks it's my imagination. We cling to the last strips of the veneer. And each other. There are a lot of stories about how the rain started. The thing that always comes to mind first isn't the how though, it's the how much. Russell still does the math too: 15, 5,400, and 8,550. 15 inches a day, 5,400 a year, and 8,550 feet since the start. We have no idea if it's accurate. But it's important to think about it, he says, because it reminds us to keep moving. I'm Tanner. Russell plucked me from the rain when I was two. Fourteen years ago we left Philadelphia. As the water rose, we moved west, hoping the elevation would keep us warm and dry. Pittsburg, Indianapolis, Sioux Falls, Rapid City. Now we're stranded on the islands in Wyoming. Russell thinks they used to be the Bighorn mountains. But we can't go back now. There's no warm and there's no dry anymore. Just a rumor about a place where it isn't raining. So we're going to try to make it-520 miles south to Leadville. But we can't drift east, the Great Plains have become waterspout alley, a raging tomb of moving water. Together we push on, surviving, heading to Leadville. But something is wrong with him now. He says it's nothing. But his breathing doesn't sound that way.

Beyond All Bearing
35,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Beyond All Bearing distills and illuminates moments in ordinary lives, in ordinary time, and renders them extraordinary. These poems turn the quotidian into the rhythm and the rhyme that is poetry, preserving them on the page. Some of these moments shimmer with the beauty of pansies and paperwhites out of season; some flicker with the grace of candles placed on a table at the end of a tragic day or the grace of a holy kiss; some hum with love for family, friends, and students; some hint at a longing for God; some speak without flinching of unspeakable tragedy. And yet, among the songs of loss and grief that pervade this collection, God enters ''beautiful beyond all bearing.'' ''There is so much to admire in Susan Spear's Beyond All Bearing--her mastery both of free verse and of forms such as the pantoum, the triolet, the rondeau, the villanelle, and the sonnet; her precise delineations of the natural world; and her lively wit and playful humor. One cannot help but be profoundly moved . . . and although the underlying theme of loss is ever-present, the work is nonetheless suffused with faith, hope, grace, wisdom, and above all, love.'' --Catherine Chandler, Winner of the Richard Wilbur award ''Susan Spear's new collection of poems, Beyond All Bearing, encompasses matters of compassion, love, and human loss with insight and grace. Several of them are fearlessly experimental . . . and many are admirably rendered in traditional forms. But it's what they affirm to the reader--'God is slow / and slowly tenders me the strength to go'--that tends to stop the heart.'' --Marilyn L. Taylor, Wisconsin Poet Laureate ''Peaceful celebration and profound mourning, injury and sustaining revelation, faith and astounding beauty--they all live in Susan Spear's perfectly balanced poems. . . . Each page grips the reader with precise and commanding language in lines that compel us to resist the urge to look away from what we 'don't want to see' while commending us to moments of grace and consolation to help us live 'as we wander through this glacial grief.' . . . Beyond All Bearingbrings us stunningly fresh, resilient, and deeply moving poems of daily life, love, and inconceivable loss that will not soon be forgotten.'' --Ernest Hilbert, Author ofCaligulan For WEBSITE: ''There could be no greater honor to Western's Graduate Program in Creative Writing than that Susan Spear, our first graduate, has now also published the first full-length poetry collection by any of our alumni. It is a memorable debut. Over the past decade, Spear has refined an extraordinary ability to address both the quotidian and the sacred, transforming them into reflections of each other with a power of parable rare in any age. Such is her art that throughout Beyond All Bearingthe ordinary becomes more and more transfused with the divine, and the divine even enters into daily living. Despite moments of great pathos and humor, however, this movement of God and Man towards each other is anything but easy or obvious. Like all strong poets, Spear deeply understands the gulf between reality and love, and insists on including both, from the body of her own son, 'a thin young man / belt around his neck,' to a God who 'is slow / and slowly tenders me the strength to go.' The book thereby comes to embody both a closely observed texture of reality along with great leaps of faith, conjuring the very strongest poets in this tradition. Only a true poet in this vein could render even grief 'beautiful beyond all bearing.''' --David J. Rothman, Editor,THINK: a JOURNAL OF Poetry, Criticism, and Reviews Susan Delaney Spear is an Assistant Professor of English at Colorado Christian University in Lakewood, Colorado. In 2012, she earned an MFA in Creative Writing / Poetry from Western State Colorado University. Along
