Bustle's "17 Best Nonfiction Books Coming Out In September 2018"

"With This is the Way the World Ends Jeff Nesbit has delivered an enlightening - and alarming - explanation of the climate challenge as it exists today. Climate change is no far-off threat. It's impacting communities all over the world at this very moment, and we ignore the scientific reality at our own peril. The good news? As Nesbit underscores, disaster is not preordained. The global community can meet this moment ― and we must." ―Senator John Kerry
A unique view of climate change glimpsed through the world's resources that are disappearing.

The world itself won’t end, of course. Only ours will: our livelihoods, our homes, our cultures. And we’re squarely at the tipping point.
Longer droughts in the Middle East. Growing desertification in China and Africa. The monsoon season shrinking in India. Amped-up heat waves in Australia. More intense hurricanes reaching America. Water wars in the Horn of Africa. Rebellions, refugees and starving children across the globe. These are not disconnected events. These are the pieces of a larger puzzle that environmental expert Jeff Nesbit puts together
Unless we start addressing the causes of climate change and stop simply navigating its effects, we will be facing a series of unstoppable catastrophes by the time our preschoolers graduate from college. Our world is in trouble – right now. This Is the Way the World Ends tells the real stories of the substantial impacts to Earth’s systems unfolding across each continent. The bad news? Within two decades or so, our carbon budget will reach a point of no return.
But there’s good news. Like every significant challenge we’ve faced―from creating civilization in the shadow of the last ice age to the Industrial Revolution―we can get out of this box canyon by understanding the realities and changing the worn-out climate conversation to one that’s relevant to every person. Nesbit provides a clear blueprint for real-time, workable solutions we can tackle together.

Book Sales and Signing Tips

Posted by Wayne G. Barber  Photos by Wayne G. Barber

Book Sales & Signings come in many shapes and sizes. "Rock Star" (30 books )Woonsocket romance author Jeannette Winters is holding her second book signing and fan appreciation day today at Pepin Lumber and Gift Shop , Cumberland Hill Road, Woonsocket who stocks and sells a ton of her hot or mild romance books which she writes in two versions. All of our sales cannot be on Kobo, Amazon,or Barnes and Noble especially if you self publish. Winters came out of marketing at a big corporation and applies a lot of experience to her book signings. Free raffles which supply her with some new e-mail contacts and for future book arrivals to one of her 4 series of books. Winters also co-authors to help other authors develop a loyal fan base. I personally have done real well at farmers markets, huge community yard sales , art festivals, inside a church for candlelight shopping and other venues. Think outside the box and you too could rack up some nice retail sales and you always will get some good networking and leads to help you in your journey in book sales.

Life sucks and then you die. Sort of. 

Valentino Crispo loves Mom’s Italian cooking, sun on the beach, and working for the Cranston Police Department. He loses it all after getting vamped. Now, he’s the newest vampire in Providence. 
When a hitwoman apparently shoots his dad and one of Cranston’s Finest on the same night, Tino stops letting vampirism bite him. He’ll mix supernatural and PD skills to solve the crime. But he hasn’t got the hang of being a vampire yet.
The mystery of whodunit and why is tied up with Tino’s own turning. The Providence vampire elders hate nosy vamps almost as much as new ones. Will Valentino stand up and be counted or add to the body count?
