Book Summary :

Talent is not enough to make it in the music business, and the insights, tips, and techniques in Make Me A Star will give readers the edge they need to stand out to even the toughest judges - on television or anywhere in the music business. Anastasia Brown, music producer and judge of Nashville Star, provides the insight anyone wanting to make it in the music business needs to know, whether through music contests or going the traditional route. From creating a memorable first impression to planning a winning strategy for sustained success, every step of the process is addressed. Behind the scenes stories of what worked (and what didn't) from such performers as Keith Urban, Reba McIntire, Carrie Underwood, and many more show the human side of the journey. Make Me a Star helps the reader determine his or her strengths and gives advice based on those strengths. Each chapter will also include insight from top producers, agents, publicists, and stylists. "They say a smart man learns from his mistakes but a wise man learns from another's mistakes. Some pitfalls are necessary for an artist's development, but not all. The stories and advice within these pages are not merely rhetoric or theory - they are hard-fought and hard-won experiences from those who've been in the trenches." ---Keith Urban

Book Summary :

William Shatner gets the joke about William Shatner. In fact, most of the time he's the one telling it. His self-effacing attitude, so perfectly parodied in the bombastic character he now plays on Boston Legal, Denny Crane, is one of the reasons for his huge popularity. While best known for his creation of Captain James T. Kirk, commander of the starship Enterprise on Star Trek, William Shatner has been a working actor for more than half a century. He has experienced all the ups (the awards and acclaim) and the down (having to live for a time in the truck bed of his camper when he couldn't get work) that are a part of the actor's world. In Up Till Now he tells us about his remarkable life, from training as a Shakespearan actor under Sir Tyrone Guthrie to his time on Broadway, his movie career and, of course, his successful tv series. He has worked with an extraordinary range of actors, among them Spencer Tracy, Burt Lancaster, Marlene Dietrich, Judy Garland, Walter Matthau, Sandra Bullock, Ben Stiller and Robert DeNiro. He also writes, with glee, about some of his less successful ventures, including Incubus , the only feature ever made entirely in Esperanto. As funny, charming and self-deprecating as the man himself, this book will delight his many fans of all ages.

Book Summary :

У Джека Ричера нет дома, ему некуда спешить – зато в его распоряжении все время мира. Для такого перекати-поля, как он, однодневная остановка в маленьком пристанционном городке с необычным названием Материнский Приют – отличное времяпрепровождение. К примеру, для того чтобы узнать, откуда взялось это название. Ричер уже представлял себе одинокую могильную плиту, затерявшуюся среди бескрайнего моря пшеницы, или трогательное предание о внезапных родах во время переселения на Дикий Запад... Но вместо этого на станции его ждали испуганная женщина, спутавшая Джека со своим коллегой-детективом, загадочная записка о двухстах смертях и городишко, полный молчаливых и крайне наблюдательных жителей. А заурядная однодневная остановка превратилась в длинное путешествие прямо к сердцу тьмы...

Book Summary :

Whenever I mention my Frankie Laine association to someone for the first time, two questions always come up: Why are you interested in Frankie Laine and his music? and How did you meet Frankie? I suppose the first question relates to my age. I was born a decade after Frankie had recorded Thats My Desire in 1946. That record became Frankies first to sell a million copies in 1947. Furthermore, Frankie was already internationally famous by 1954, the year my parents were married. Why did I become interested in Frankie Laine and his music? I can sum it up in one wordemotion. Frankie, now retired, is an expressive person. As a true song stylist, Frankie shaped and phrased the words in a melody, thus creating a style that was all his own. Indeed, all Frankie Laine fans treasure Frankies great ability as a vocalist. However, as far as I am concerned, the allure of Frankie Laine goes beyond his musical voice. I think Frankies immense emotion and profound appreciation for what he sang, regardless of whether it was a jazzy, up-tempo song or a slow ballad (or any other type of song), were what always captivated me. This book answers the second question detailing the story associated with the first time I met Frankie Laine. Nonetheless, when I met Frankie in 1985, our time together was notable in an unexpected way. I experienced another aspect of Frankie Laine, which had absolutely nothing to do with musichis kindness. Although I had read stories about what a nice person Frankie always was, I witnessed, firsthand, how much he truly cherishes his fans. Primarily, I had two goals in writing this book. First, I needed to assemble all my wonderful Frankie Laine adventures and put them down on paper in an organized fashion before my memories of the events faded. Therefore, I searched through numerous videotapes, audiotapes, newspaper articles, letters, photographs, and e-mail notes within my prized Laine library. Of course, I also relied on my personal recollections. Second, I aspired to relate to readers how an ordinary person (me), by sheer determination and action, had succeeded in his initial questI did meet Frankie Laine. Additionally, I developed a friendship with this amazing, famous singer. Each person has a special dream. Some dreams do come true. Craig Cronbaugh, 2005

Working in the big-time cosmetics world is all about glamour and artifice ("Like Barbies that can talk"), but what the self-professed nice guy from Wisconsin really wants is something and someone real to come home to. And then his best friend Gretchen makes him a really tempting offer: Since neither one of them has found the real thing yet, why don't they start a family together? Suddenly, as life becomes a whirl of ultrasounds, online baby registries, baby names (Civil Liberty, anyone?), and other adjustments, Blaine discovers something surprising: No one is more attractive than an expectant father. Now, in the wacky, gossipy world of fashion and celebrity, where coming out has never been more "in," and the words "gay dad" are synonymous with "way hot," Blaine is in for the wildest ride of his life...and a shock that will change everything...

Meredith Lee is one of the most successful women in television. She has a daytime show that has an audience of millions. She seems to have it all. But behind the tirelessly successful facade lies the story of a woman who nearly lost everything. This is the story of a woman who could not keep love in her life. The love of neither her father nor her mother. Who lost the love of her life the first time around, then lost the love of her own child. She could not even find love in herself. This is a story about women, about their sugar and spice, about the deep natural instincts that drive women through whatever society is trying to pin on them at the time. It is also about love, where to look for it and how to hold on to it when it is found.

Book Summary :

The learning and teaching of composition at Primary Five and Primary Six is similar. How well a student writes a composition is dependent primarily on his or her exposure to the English Language. Language skills are not acquired overnight but can be gradually enhanced through intensive exposure, a voracious appetite for reading and constant practice. Many students who are able to breeze through Paper 2 of their English Language examination find it difficult to score well for Paper 1 – Composition and Situation Writing. Given that Paper 1 takes about 30% of the entire PSLE English examination, it is essential for students to develop their writing skills to score in this area. Unfortunately, many students do not get sufficient opportunities to write compositions in school and have them graded by their teachers. Practice makes perfect. It is beneficial for students to get regular practice in writing their own compositions. This book has been specially designed to be a valuable educational aid for students of all ability levels. Whether your child is facing difficulties in writing compositions or is already a prolific young writer seeking to up his or her writing skills a notch, this book will provide the stimulus for your child to take his or her writing skills to new heights. The model compositions are of a high standard to serve as a reference for students and inspire them to further develop their writing skills. Ample guidance is provided for every composition exercise to help students to pen down terrific compositions they never thought they were capable of. By faithfully going through every composition and situational writing exercise, your child will be embarking on a fruitful journey towards becoming a more confident and creative writer.

Book Summary :

From East Africa of 1950s/60s comes this cleverly crafted story set against the backdrop of Hollywood and Bollywood films. Pictures that had the dances of Helen, the dance queen of Bollywood were box office hits. We fought to get the closest seat to the screen in the third class . . . because our eternal hope was that when Helen did her dance whirls and her umbrella skirt fanned out we would be able to see her naked legs. Alas, Indian heroines wore baggy pantaloons underneath, unlike Marilyn Monroe in Some like it Hot. Dancing with Shadows will touch every heart that has tasted the elixir of love and faced its challenges. The weekly visits to local cinemas to watch the latest releases of romantic pictures satiated the emotional highs of love often denied in real life by restrictive social norms. Where are the narrators escapades to the cinema and his recurring dreams leading him to? His journey will bring into sharp focus the alchemy of love that is at work in every heart.

A young woman gets caught up in the secrets and shadows of a big-screen legend and a small-town scandal in this #1 New York Times bestseller from Nora Roberts. Cilla McGowan, a former child star, has found a more satisfying life restoring homes. So she comes to Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley to save the dilapidated farmhouse of her grandmother—a legendary actress who died of an overdose there more than thirty years ago. Plunging into the project with gusto, Cilla’s almost too busy and exhausted to notice her neighbor, graphic novelist Ford Sawyer. Determined not to carry on the family tradition of ill-fated romances, Cilla steels herself against Ford’s quirky charm, though she can’t help indulging in a little fantasy. But it’s reality that holds its share of dangers for Cilla. A cache of unsigned letters found in the attic points to a mysterious romance in her grandmother’s life, and may be what sparks a frightening, violent assault. Now, if Cilla and Ford are unable to sort out who is targeting her and why, she may, just like her world-famous grandmother, be cut down in the prime of her life. From the Paperback edition.

The desire to fit in and be accepted led to my suicide and the abuse from daily peers and family was leading to my death. Life was just a constant battle and waking up was a reminder of why I wanted so much not to. My boyfriend bruised my pride and dignity and left me insecure and weak, thus the battle remains.
