Legends of Ji Gong first appeared as a literary work during the Song Dynasty. Funny and entertaining, the stories of Ji Gong had gone a long way in inculcating moral values in the common people. Numerous accounts had been written and published. Eventually, the original writer became obscure. Ji Gong was a peculiar and remarkable character. He was an immortal who made his appearance in the human world and mingled with ordinary folks. Depicted as a crazy and scruffy monk, he always carried a worn-out fan and a gourd of wine. Though a monk, he was fond of meat and wine. In this volume, you will find out how Ji Gong was born and how he became a monk. He did many good deeds--helping a goldsmith to find his long lost daughter, punishing an unscrupulous man, overpowering a boa spirit, exposing a fox spirit, reuniting a couple and rebuilding a tablet hall. You will be amused by the antics of this adorable monk.

Everyone knows the Norse god Loki, or at least they think they do: He is the god of mischief, the trickster, the troublemaker of Asgard. To some, he is a destructive force to be defeated or restrained. To others, he is an amusing prankster, a friend, and an ally. Love him or hate him, he’s impossible to ignore. But is there more to Loki, or have we only scratched the surface? Playing With Fire is part historical exploration, part heartfelt devotional, written from the perspective of a devotee who has walked with this often misunderstood deity for over two decades. Go deeper with Loki and be surprised. Go all the way, and be transformed.

Commissioning editors say good dialogue is one of the first things that make a book stand out from the crowd - and similarly, that clunky direct speech is one of the first things that will send a book straight from the slushpile to the rejections bin. But while many other aspects of writing are pored over in intense detail, there have been very few books on the art of writing successful dialogue. In this practical guide for aspiring writers of all levels, Irving Weinman, himself a published writer and well-known creative writing tutor, uses case studies to help you explore how to write good dialogue, and gives you a range of fun and challenging exercises that will help you, to, to write brilliant dialogue.

From New York Times bestseller, Corinne Michaels, comes a new heartwarming and sexy standalone romance novel. My life was perfect - until a shocking tragedy pulled the rug out from underneath me. My children were left without a father. I was without a husband and a provider. Instead of wallowing in my grief, I buried myself in my work at Dovetail Enterprises. Landing the promotion as the CEO’s right hand was exactly what I needed. Getting saddled with Milo Huxley as an assistant is exactly the opposite. I can’t stand him. He’s arrogant, irresponsible, and out for my job. As if that’s not bad enough, he has to be devastatingly sexy, and have a posh English accent that makes me squirm on top of it all. I’ve had enough unpredictability for one lifetime, thank you. But soon enough, we’re fighting less and laughing more. He’s there for me when no one else is. And those good looks aren’t the only panty-dropping thing about him. If I only knew what to do about it . . .

New York Times bestselling author Missy Johnson asks a burning question: What happens when love is undeniable—and taboo? Pietro Gustovi is loyal, polished, and hard as stone, the kind of guy women want and men respect. At twenty-three, he’s survived tragedies that would break men twice his age. And he owes it all to his father’s closest friend, Giovanni Spontagio, who took him in as an orphaned teenager. Pietro would give his life for Giovanni . . . but his heart belongs to Giovanni’s daughter. Raised in Chicago under the spotlight of power and privilege, Lucia Spontiago feels most alive on stage. Determined to become a prima ballerina, she escapes her father’s protective gaze long enough to audition for the ballet in New York City. Soon, however, Lucy realizes that she is not alone. Pietro is watching her back. And though he’s like a brother to her, Lucy cannot deny the thrill she feels knowing his eyes are on her. Pietro could never betray his mentor by sleeping with his only child. But Lucy follows her passions, no matter how forbidden. Soon their nights are consumed by explosive, red-hot temptation—a dance that will expose shocking secrets and burn everything else to the ground. Note: Code of Honor ends on a cliffhanger. Pietro and Lucy’s story continues in Code of Love! Praise for Code of Honor “Yet again Missy Johnson slays us with an impeccable story and characters that make us think. A beautifully written tale of a life we can only imagine, Code of Honor is one of the best books of the summer.”—Ashley Suzanne, author of Raven and the Destined series “Code of Honor is dark, sexy, and deliciously enthralling. Missy Johnson takes you into a dangerous world you won’t want to leave.”—Cecy Robson, author of Once Kissed “In a beautiful love story I couldn’t put down, Missy Johnson weaves together mob action with an element of stepbrother taboo. She’s for sure an author to watch!”—Laura Marie Altom, author of The Escort “[A] dramatic tale of Chicago mafiosi in love . . . Stubborn and feisty, Lucia doesn’t shy from making hard choices. Every step is a hard-earned victory and her relationship with Pietro is more than just passion.”—Publishers Weekly “The passion between Pietro and Lucy was quite hot, I admit. They’re very good together, and I’d love for them to have a happy ending.”—The Booksnake Etc. “I thoroughly enjoyed it. Pietro’s heartache from losing his parents and hiding his feelings for Lucy are very well written.”—Majorly Delicious “Sexy and sweet . . . As you’re enjoying the exploration of romance and love, the mystery element and mob life aspect is building in the background. But boy oh boy, when it starts, when the action picks up, it feels right to be rattled by where things go.”—The Book Enthusiast “I really can’t wait to read the sequel! It’s almost impossible to wait!”—Collector of Book Boyfriends & Girlfriends “The flow was great, the characters were well represented and Missy did a great job of letting the characters personalities shine.”—Trina’s Tantilising Tidbits “I loved this story. I loved the playfulness that ensued between Lucy and Pietro.”—A Crazy Vermonter’s Book Reviews Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
