Alton Pryor
alton pryor
Alton Pryor worked for California Farmer magazine for twenty-seven-years. When the magazine was sold was laid off and turned to self publishing. "To other writers, I assure you, self-publishing is not easy, but it is satisfying. Perhaps the highlight of my entire writing career happened at the State Fair last year. A lady came to my booth, and held up Little Known Tales in California History. "I bought his book from you yesterday," she told me. I waited for a complaint. Instead, she said, "I have a 14-year-old son who I can't get to read anything, let alone history. I gave him your book in the car on the way home and he hasn't put it down since." This lady made the return trip to the fair just to tell me this personal story. If I've gotten one person to read, I feel I've accomplished an important feat. I'm still glowing."

I'm an artist and illustrator who loves to cook healthy food. After turning to a wheat free diet a couple of years ago, I realized that most gluten-free products weren't all that healthy and I was really looking for some of those old Italian comfort foods that I grew up with and loved so much. My Grandfather owned and was Chef at El Rocco's in Little Italy area of Toronto Ontario, and I suppose that's where I have found my passion for food.

Tony Ponzo
Mike Celeste
donald gazzaniga
Tony Ponzo, right, with Mike Celeste have combined trading experience of over 60 years. They have been partners in developing stock and option trading strategies since 1998. Tony and Mike have observed over the years that there is no straight forward, easy-to-read book that puts all this stock and option information in one concise document. So they wrote the book themselves and called it Never Let Wall Street Steal Your Money Again! Readers will have fun with this entertaining book that teaches the very basics of the stock and option market. It then guides them to more advanced levels that will increase trading skills and the odds of making profiting no matter what direction the market is going in. The book is also written with the intention to help traders combat such catastrophic events as the big recession that started in 2007. There is no get rich quick scheme here. Rather the authors teach the reader to make trading decisions on their own based on the knowledge they will gain. It is technical in nature for sure, but it is also written in a fun and interesting manner. Enjoy!!

Vickie Starr
Vickie Starr
An auto-biographical story as told to writer/author R. B. Griffith. This is not your usual over-sexed, hyped madam book. It's much better than that. Told in her own words, but organized by Griffith for publication. Starr started out at the age of 16 when she was first sexually attacked by her Missouri school bus driver. She went off to San Francisco after that to join her sister for the 1939 World's Fair. Her sister tried to guide her through life by enrolling her in a Catholic school (Sister's school), but fate held another path for Starr. It's the real story of a young woman who took a few wrong steps and ended up working in brothels in San Francisco during World War II and afterwards. After a few years of a tumultuous life involving her pimp husband, who she will tell you was "better than that," police and others, she ended up owning Ash Meadows in Nevada's Death Valley area. The only customers she ever saw at Ash Meadows were pilots and those they flew in. She lived into her eighties, always supporting herself. She recently passed away.



W. B. Tripp
ProFootball in the days of Rockne
I was like most people. I had the desire to start my own business. I knew that I could be successful if I had the cash, but I needed a business that I could start on a shoestring. I was working sixty-plus hours a week in a manufacturing company as a shift supervisor. My salary of $40,000 was not providing enough income for my family of four. My wife was a stay-at-home mother of two small children. Money was extremely tight; there were many times we would scrounge change out of the truck console to put fractions of a dollar of gas in our truck. We were always robbing Peter to pay Paul, and I hated living that way. Endowed with an entrepreneurial mind and a hunger to no longer live this way, I developed an eye for unique ways to profit online and became phenomenally successful. I know a lot of families are struggling to pay bills and reduce debt. I want to share my methods and insights with you so that you too can make stellar profits from the comfort of your own home, on your own time, in however big or small a way you choose. The methods I’ve outlined in this book are guaranteed to raise your income as much or as little as you want, depending on the amount of effort and time you can or are willing to put in. I urge you to try one of these methods, several of them, or all of them. They all work. Tailor them to your interests, expertise, time, and energy. Make them work for you. I wish you the best of success in all your enterprises! ~ W.B. Tripp
