FastReset® Il Metodo Rapido Di Guarigione Emotiva

La rabbia per un’offesa ricevuta ti annebbia i pensieri. Il terrore di salire su un aereo ti paralizza. Una voglia irresistibile di cibo condiziona la tua vita. Un attacco di claustrofobia ti impedisce di respirare. Chiunque abbia vissuto un forte disagio emotivo, con tutte le conseguenze fisiche che comporta, sa che nel momento di crisi si desidera una sola cosa: che l¿emozione negativa si dissolva in un istante, facendoci tornare padroni di noi stessi. Maria Grazia Parisi, medico psicoterapeuta ed esperta in medicine complementari, ha messo a punto uno strumento innovativo che ha risolto i problemi di centinaia di persone e sta suscitando grande interesse anche in ambito ospedaliero. Si chiama FastReset® e si distingue da tutti i metodi tradizionali per una caratteristica cruciale: i risultati si ottengono in pochi minuti. Sfruttando un meccanismo fisiologico, e applicando uno spostamento dell’attenzione che attivi la corteccia cerebrale, si possono depotenziare le emozioni negative (senza reprimerle) modificando così il peso degli eventi passati e presenti sulla propria esistenza e rendendo gestibili persino traumi, lutti, dipendenze, ansia, fobie. Efficace anche per molti disturbi psicosomatici, per i bambini – poiché del tutto privo di controindicazioni – e per ottimizzare lo stato psicofisico prima di una performance sportiva, il FastReset® è illustrato in questo libro con precise e semplici indicazioni e con moltissimi esempi di successo. Un sistema di autogestione emotiva che fa ritrovare sicurezza e serenità, migliorando i rapporti con gli altri, in famiglia e nel lavoro.

Fang. Maximum ride

Max, Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman e Angel sono stati le cavie di un esperimento genetico che ha mutato per sempre il loro DNA, rendendoli al novantotto per cento umani e al due per cento uccelli. Fuggiti dal laboratorio in cui sono cresciuti, e costantemente braccati dai loro stessi creatori, i ragazzi sono costretti a combattere non solo per se stessi, ma anche per la salvezza del mondo intero… Max è abituata a stare costantemente all’erta, pronta a radunare lo stormo e a volare via al minimo segnale di pericolo. Tuttavia persino lei è paralizzata dalla paura quando la piccola Angel, la più dotata del gruppo, ha un’agghiacciante premonizione: Fang sarà il primo di loro a morire. Confusa e sconvolta, Max non può nemmeno immaginare una vita senza di lui: Fang è il suo braccio destro, il suo migliore amico, la sua anima gemella… Nel disperato tentativo di proteggerlo, quindi, è costretta per qualche tempo ad abbandonare lo stormo che, istigato da Angel, inizia a mettere in dubbio il suo ruolo di capo. E tutto ciò accade proprio mentre i ragazzi devono affrontare una nuova, spaventosa minaccia. Il dottor Hans, proprietario di un avanzatissimo laboratorio di ricerca, ha infatti una terribile sorpresa in serbo per loro: Dylan, un quindicenne alato creato con l’unico scopo di diventare il consorte di Max. E, per realizzare il piano, Fang deve essere eliminato.

The Exiled Blade

Venice stands victorious. It has beaten back the German emperor’s army and the Byzantine navy. The Duchess Alexa’s party at court is strong again. Her niece, Lady Giulietta, will be the next Regent, and possibly the next duchess. Giulietta’s lover, Lord Tycho, will sit beside her.
But no one is prepared for the fury of Prince Alonzo, exiled regent and traitor to his city. No one is prepared for the harshest winter Europe has ever known. As the canals of Venice freeze and wolves cross the ice from the north, Alonzo’s plotting brings the Venetian empire to the very edge of destruction.
With the Millioni family at war with itself, Lord Tycho, once a slave and a trained assassin, has to ask himself the only question that matters. How much is he prepared to sacrifice to keep Lady Giulietta’s city safe?

The Enlightenment of Daniel

Business tycoon Daniel Derenzo lives for his work until his dying father reminds him life is short. When Daniel starts to reevaluate his world he experiences a startling revelation—he’s attracted to his business partner and best friend, Nick, even though Daniel always believed himself to be straight. In typical type-A fashion, Daniel dissects his newfound desires with the help of the experts at the Expanded Horizons sex clinic. He goes after Nick with the fierce determination that’s won him many a business deal.
Nick Ross was in love with Daniel years ago, when they were roommates in college. But Daniel was straight and Nick patched his broken heart by marrying Marcia. Two kids and fourteen years later, they go through the motions of their marriage like ships passing in the night. But Nick’s kids mean the world to him, and he’s afraid he’ll never get joint custody if they divorced. If he can trust his heart to an awakening Daniel, they all might find their way to a happily ever after.

Empty Mansions

When Pulitzer Prize–winning investigative journalist Bill Dedman noticed a real estate listing for a grand estate in Connecticut that had sat empty for nearly sixty years, he had no idea that he was stumbling onto one of the most surprising American stories of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries–complete with copper barons, Gilded Age opulence, backdoor politics, and a reclusive 104-year-old heiress.

Empty Mansions explores the fascinating life of Huguette Clark, an enigmatic figure who had not been photographed in public since the 1920s. Though she owned three palatial homes in California, New York, and Connecticut, they sat vacant while she lived out her final two decades in a New York City hospital, despite being in excellent health.

Dedman and Huguette’s cousin, Paul Clark Newell, Jr., one of the few relatives to have had frequent conversations with Huguette, present a fairy tale told in reverse: a daughter born into privilege who in time…

The Easy Way to Write Horror That Sells

Whatever your area of preference: short stories, novels, film and/or TV, there is an ever hungry need for thrillers and dramas using supernatural themes and settings. In short, horror fiction.
All you have to do is to understand the conventions associated with this most prestigious of genres.
Now, don’t go thinking in cliches. Horror is not just Stephen King and Slasher movies!
Horror and Dark Fantasy fiction also encompasses the likes of Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, the Matrix series, and TV shows like Buffy, Charmed, Fringe, Bates Motel and The Walking Dead.
Of course there are the classics to aspire to: Edgar Allen Poe, Lovecraft, MR James, and more modern writers like Peter Straub, Clive Barker, Graham Masterton, James Herbert. Stephen King describes Thomas Harris (Silence of the Lambs), James Patterson and Patricia Cornwell as closet horror writers too!
All of the above writers know – and have profited – from the notion that scaring the pants off your reader not only makes you successful, it keeps readers coming back for more!
Good horror is sophisticated. More and more writers, like Joe Hill and Jack Ketchum, are winding up in the literary section of your local bookshop or library. No longer is horror marginalized. It’s increasingly seen as respectable and justifiably good writing.
So, believe me, it’s more than possible to make a very good living from writing horror and dark fantasy!
Do you want success as a horror writer? And get to grips with a genre that will benefit all of your writing.
Here’s what the book covers:
* How to build suspense
* How to create believable characters
* How to come up with original and compelling ideas
* How to create convincing monsters and psychological enemies
* How to sustain a series of stories / books / movies
* And much more!
Part One: A thorough analysis of the horror genre from its origins to its place in the modern world. We will examine the various forms of storytelling in the past and in the present, identifying the roots of the genre and how certain functional characteristics have been carried over into the modern diversity of horror / suspense / mystery / thriller and crime genres.
Part Two: Creating our own stories. We establish the parameters and the requirements of character, the horror conventions and ways to stretch the envelope. The emphasis is on creating strong durable protagonists with believable agendas at credible odds with the antagonist / monster / psychological threat.
Part Three: The importance of setting, environment and the psychological landscape. We discuss the various ways in which authors use setting as ‘the third character’ – and how to create our own living, breathing locations. We also examine mood, tone and factors like theme, purpose and the overall feel of your supernatural stories in this context.
Part Four: Plotting. How to take a rough story idea from inspiration to a full blown template for a novel. The importance of planning and organization. How to easily construct plots using the various forms of writing software available and other tried and true methods – card file systems, cut and paste etc. We also study pace, building suspense, tension and examine the fear factor.
Part Five: The writing. How to sustain motivation and enthusiasm for your writing project and ensure it is written until it’s finished. Procrastination, time and self-doubt are the writer’s natural enemies. We deal with these issues head on – and head them off! We study time management and self-support systems in detail to help us get past any slumps, writers blocks or personal health issues.
