“I found it to be really well written, the writing well paced, and the storyline original and entertaining.” -THE Cockeyed Optimist

During her senior year in high school, Maddie Burch promised herself not to ever fall for a cute guy – or any guy – again. Cute guys are players and not to be trusted, a fact she learned the hard way when her first boyfriend ran her heart through a paper shredder.

Two years later, her promise is still intact, and she’s determined to make it through college without falling victim to another creep. She has her job, school and The Guys Are Props Club to keep her mind and hormones in check.

The club was founded by Jessica, Maddie’s best friend. It is a sisterhood of girls who have fallen prey to heartless jerks and who have vowed to turn the tables. Once a semester, Jessica requires members to “do onto others as they’ve done unto you.”

Setting the example, Jessica’s next play is Sebastian Capello, a theater major with heartthrob looks and a flair for Latin dance, whose heart she plans to break the way hers was once broken. What the friends don’t know is that Sebastian is different.

Despite his perfect looks and popularity, he’s not a jerk. He doesn’t play games to get his way. Instead, he keeps it real and goes after what he wants with honest intentions. And what he wants is not a bombshell like Jessica, but a down-to-earth girl like Maddie – even if it causes a riff in the girl’s friendship. Even if it means getting Maddie to break her personal vow.

“…pick up resilience. It’s the missing piece to building up your creative endurance.” -Jarie B.

If you want to achieve something original and meaningful with your life, you MUST learn to deal with rejection and criticism. If you’re an artist of any kind your work will be rejected by editors, curators and other gatekeepers. And each time you put it in front of the public, you expose yourself to criticism.

If you’re an entrepreneur you face rejection by (potential) customers, partners and investors. Those same people won’t hesitate to criticize you if they are unhappy (justified or not). If you’re chasing your dream job you’ll receive your share of rejection letters. And once you land the job, taking flak when things go wrong is part of the deal.

If you’re an athlete or sports player it’s a battle to get on the team. And you’ll hear about it from all sides – your coach, your team-mates and (so-called) supporters – if they think your performance isn’t up to scratch.

If you’re a campaigner for change you face inertia, resistance and hostility from everyone with an investment in the status quo. No wonder most people choose not to rock the boat. Between them, rejection and criticism can rob you of your dream.

Many people set out on their chosen path full of hope and inspiration, only to turn back because they couldn’t deal with the emotional impact of crushing rejections and vicious criticism. If you want to avoid joining the legions of also-rans, you’ll need to find practical, effective ways to deal with rejection and criticism.

Anyone who says ‘don’t take it so personally’ doesn’t understand what it’s like when you are hit by a major rejection or biting criticism. At least to begin with, it’s almost impossible NOT to take it personally (for very good psychological reasons). To deal with rejection and criticism, you need to acknowledge the pain – and find ways to bounce back from the impact.

In short, you need to develop resilience.

Charlie Keefe is not just your typical dog lover –– he’s a world famous dog painter, a.k.a. “The Picasso of Pooch Portraits”. Unfortunately, Charlie’s beloved muse, Pete, his lovable Jack Russell terrier, has just died. And he’s totally grief-stricken by the loss of his furry best friend.

So, after months of suffering over his dearly departed soulmate and wondering if he ever made it to The Rainbow Bridge, Charlie reluctantly agrees to foster a new puppy –– a cute Cavalier King Charles named Brownie from the local animal shelter.

Soon after, Charlie is surprised to find himself falling head over heels with this new puppy girl, his ‘Rebound Dog’, as he calls her –– as well as being romantically attracted to Janelle Jordan, the head hound at the dog rescue.

But then complications arise when the ghost of his old dog, Pete, mysteriously reappears one night and comes back to haunt him and the new puppy –– setting off a bizarre chain of events that throw Charlie’s life, career, and entire belief system into chaos!

In The Broken Saint, Karen Seagate and Ryan Miner investigate the murder of Maricel Salizar, a young Filipino exchange student at Central Montana State. The most obvious suspect is the boyfriend, who happens to have gang connections.

And then there’s Amber Cunningham, a fellow student who’s obviously incensed at Maricel for a sexual indiscretion involving Amber’s boyfriend. But the evidence keeps leading Seagate and Miner back to the professor–and LDS bishop–who brought her into his dysfunctional home.

Karen Seagate takes it in stride when she and her partner learn that the professor can’t seem to tell the truth about his relationship with the victim. After all, Seagate’s philosophy is, If he breathes, he lies. But to her devout partner, a high-ranking fellow Mormon who has violated every sacred trust deserves special punishment.
