Cliffhanger by Ulysses Grant Dietz Book Resume:

Two young men, a mysterious silver bowl, and a shuttered Victorian mansion steeped in the sadness of a family curse ... Alex White and Xander Browne are newly-hired curators in the American Wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The rediscovery of a long-forgotten silver bowl covered in Arabic and Hebrew inscriptions sends the pair on a hunt for clues as to why it was made and by whom. Their search begins to unravel the secrets of the bowl’s origins as well as its connection to the Bencliffe family, whose centuries-old history is darkened by a legacy of madness and suicide. What begins as a professional friendship for Alex and Xander quickly turns personal as the two find their lives increasingly intertwined in unanticipated ways. Far beyond a mere curatorial research project, the story of the Bencliffe bowl takes on the aura of destiny as Alex and Xander make discoveries together that turn their world upside down. From neglected archives in New York and Boston to the shadowed corners of Cliffhanger, the turreted Bencliffe mansion looming over the Hudson River, the truth emerges, forcing Alex and Xander to wonder if, perhaps, their meeting might not have been a coincidence after all.

Cliffhanger Queen by Meghan March Book Resume:

New York Times bestselling author Meghan March did not set out to become the "Queen of Cliffhangers" when she began writing romance, but her readers awarded her the title when she released one jaw-dropping cliffhanger after another. As an homage to her love for her readers and the designation they bestowed upon her, she has created a collection unlike any other in Cliffhanger Queen. For the first time ever, readers can now download all six of the first books of Meghan March's epic trilogies under one cover. Inside Cliffhanger Queen, you will find romance at its finest—six amazing alpha heroes who are brought to their knees by the love of strong women: The Fall of Legend: Club owner Gabriel Legend has been fighting his way out of his rough beginnings on the streets for years, a path he certainly never expected to lead him to the greatest temptation of his life: Scarlett Priest, a society princess holding court on Fifth Avenue. She's so far out of his league that they never should have met… but sometimes fate has other plans. Will Legend survive the fall? Deal with the Devil: A ruthless, modern-day pirate of a CEO, Jericho Forge prefers the deck of his ships to dry land—and he always plays to win, no matter the game. His latest pawn is poker phenom India Baptiste, whose life he takes by storm, talking her into a deal with a devil—trading her freedom for something even more precious. But India doesn’t realize Jericho is holding an unbeatable hand and never shares everything he knows. Forge receives his own surprise as India upends his perfectly ordered billionaire lifestyle and has him throwing all his rules out the window. Only love can triumph in this epic adventure that unfolds across Europe and the high seas. Richer Than Sin: A small town, second chances, and star-crossed lovers collide in this high-stakes family drama where the heir to a billion-dollar timber empire is determined to win the heart of the daughter of his family's sworn enemy. Whitney Gable is the one who got away ten years ago—after Lincoln objected on her wedding day! Sparks fly when she arrives back in town, broke and without a ring on her finger. Can a Riscoff and a Gable ever find true happiness together? Ruthless King: Lachlan Mount is the king of New Orleans' criminal underworld, and as such, the entire city bows to him. The owner of a struggling whiskey distillery has no idea that her dead husband left her indebted to the most terrifying man in town. Mount always gets what he wants... but there is no end to the twists in this dark and gritty show-stopping story. Once and for all, we will finally learn the truth: can ruthless kings have a heart of gold? Savage Prince: A mysterious stranger appears to help Temperance Ransom out of an unthinkable situation, but his identity is even more unthinkable. Twists, turns, and heart-stopping questions will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last page! Dirty Billionaire: Creighton Karas, a classic alpha-hole billionaire hero, learns the truth about the price of love when he finally meets the one woman he can't buy. Holly Wix isn't afraid to walk away from everything he brings to the table, until he finally offers up his heart!

Der Cliffhanger und die serielle Narration by Vincent Fröhlich Book Resume:

Der Cliffhanger, also die Erzähltechnik, in einem spannenden Moment eine serielle Erzählung zu unterbrechen, steht im Zentrum dieser Studie. Vincent Fröhlichs Analysen reichen von »1001 Nacht« über viktorianische Fortsetzungsromane, französische Feuilletonromane, Kinoserien, Radio-Seifenopern, neue TV-Serien bis hin zu E-Books, Games und Webserien. Das Buch bietet nicht nur eine überfällige historische Perspektive auf den Cliffhanger, die serielle Narration und deren Entstehungsbedingungen, sondern arbeitet zudem heraus, wie reich die Formen und wie vielseitig die Charakteristika dieser Forschungsgegenstände sind und wie sehr bisher ihr kultureller und narrativer Stellenwert unterschätzt wurde.

Amber to Ashes by Gail McHugh Book Resume:

From the New York Times bestselling author of Collide and Pulse comes a gritty new novel about a shattered young woman who unexpectedly falls for two best friends. They were a storm I never saw coming, an unforeseen heartbreak on the edge of a dangerous cliff. Amber Moretti’s life changes in the span of minutes. An orphaned outsider, she is desperate to start fresh the moment she walks onto campus. In the time it takes to cross the university’s dining hall, she meets two men who bring color, air, and light to her darkened world. They became my addiction, each a needle to my next hit, my high. Brock Cunningham’s appeal is dizzying, a potent force Amber can’t deny. A green-eyed smooth talker, he instantly attracts Amber. It doesn’t take long for him to consume her every thought, her every breath. Ryder Ashcroft, a blue-eyed, tattooed, and pierced bad boy, turns Amber off immediately—that is, until he kisses her, stealing a piece of her heart, her soul. They were as opposite as fire and ice, yet I ached for them equally. Never knowing she could be broken down in so many unexpectedly beautiful yet petrifying ways, Amber finds herself falling for both men. Immoral? Maybe. I say undeniable. Uncontained. But one devastating event changes everything, shattering each of their lives...and Amber isn’t sure she can recover from it.

Online booksellers are rapidly becoming online publishers. Sell your short fiction or nonfiction to the newest markets. Anyone who publishes your compiled short stories, novels, or nonfiction is looking for more opportunities to market your work. If you have published your stories or nonfiction with a mainstream or print-on-demand publisher, that firm cooperates with online booksellers. They probably want to leverage serial rights opportunities with your short stories, articles, or nonfiction excerpts from your books. After publication, you need to drive people to online booksellers' Web sites and your own to create visibility. The revolution is in virtual book tours and online marketing with booksellers. Another hidden market is short story publishing rights' auctions online to create visibility. You sell your writing as you'd sell a product at one of the online auctions.

Offer short stories or articles to the public for a small fee to download. The music and movie industry do it. So can you. Online booksellers already are famous for a targeted community of readers that buy online. That's only one hint of hidden markets for authors that want to be well-paid for short stories or brief nonfiction. Here's how to write, customize, and market precisely what these merchants want. Here's how to pose the least financial risk to them.

The Switch Image by Lorenz Engell Book Resume:

Television is the most powerful system of images in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Nonetheless, TV has attained only little philosophical attention so far, especially compared to other (visual) media such as film. This book looks at TV as what happens on the screen and beyond it; which is mainly the operation of switching images. It therefore proposes a new definition of TV as the first picture that can be switched on, off, and over, which stresses that TV is more tactile than visual. Through the operation of switching, TV figures the world from within and as the course of its figuration. This is grasped here by the term of “ontography”, the human response to the natural environment. Through the ongoing interlacing and bridging of “TV 1.0” (the image is being switched) and “TV 2.0” (the image is a switch), TV exponentially increases the production and circulation of images. It transforms the world and itself from an analogue state to a digital one and from central perspectivism to pluri-perspective. In terms of time, through switching and the switch, it develops and reworks new temporal orderings, such as instantaneity, synchronicity, flow, and seriality. TV makes its own history. In space, it creates a mediasphere as its habitat and hence new forms of being-in-the-world, of proximity and distance, and scale. Anthropologically, it works on what a subject and an object is, on what makes the human being, and ontographically, how it is possible that there is something at all instead of nothing: through switch-images.

Experience the internet's most talked-about book for yourself from the writer Cosmopolitan called “the biggest literary phenomenon of her generation.” Tessa and Hardin’s love was complicated before. Now it’s more confusing than ever. AFTER WE FELL...Life will never be the same. #HESSA Just as Tessa makes the biggest decision of her life, everything changes. Revelations about first her family, and then Hardin’s, throw everything they knew before in doubt and makes their hard-won future together more difficult to claim. Tessa’s life begins to come unglued. Nothing is what she thought it was. Not her friends. Not her family. The one person she should be able to rely on, Hardin, is furious when he discovers the massive secret she’s been keeping. And rather than being understanding, he turns to sabotage. Tessa knows Hardin loves her and will do anything to protect her, but there’s a difference between loving someone and being able to have them in your life. This cycle of jealousy, unpredictable anger, and forgiveness is exhausting. She’s never felt so intensely for anyone, so exhilarated by someone’s kiss—but is the irrepressible heat between her and Hardin worth all the drama? Love used to be enough to hold them together. But if Tessa follows her heart now, will it be...the end?

CLIFFHANGERS by Dr. Felecia Rodgers Book Resume:

The spirit in man causes self-evaluation, reflection and ultimately the search for meaning and life’s purpose. It is the empowering energy of humanity to seek and allow many to find the love of God that surpasses all reasoned understanding. Our life’s journey is replete with mountains. The moments on mountain peaks are times for discovery and choices, conveying a lifetime process of spiritual identity and transformation. In CLIFFHANGERS, examples are offered from the Scriptures of individuals experiencing time at the pinnacle of the mountain, the questions they may have pondered and the outcome of their allotted time on the cliff: To show that every choice results in decisions which affect eternal security; To encourage you to focus on every choice by seeking God for the decision (Prov. 3:5-6); To develop a sincere and unyielding attitude regarding your relationship with God; To place this natural life and all things related to it into proper perspective (II Tim. 4:7); and To learn that all choices lead to a place of decision and all circumstances following each decision can be associated with advancement, neutrality or even decline in spiritual growth. The intended audience is anyone struggling with the complexity of life choices or in need of guidance with a life changing decision.

Matinee Melodrama by Scott Higgins Book Resume:

Long before Batman, Flash Gordon, or the Lone Ranger were the stars of their own TV shows, they had dedicated audiences watching their adventures each week. The difference was that this action took place on the big screen, in short adventure serials whose exciting cliffhangers compelled the young audience to return to the theater every seven days. Matinee Melodrama is the first book about the adventure serial as a distinct artform, one that uniquely encouraged audience participation and imaginative play. Media scholar Scott Higgins proposes that the serial’s incoherent plotting and reliance on formula, far from being faults, should be understood as some of its most appealing attributes, helping to spawn an active fan culture. Further, he suggests these serials laid the groundwork not only for modern-day cinematic blockbusters like Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark, but also for all kinds of interactive media that combine spectacle, storytelling, and play. As it identifies key elements of the serial form—from stock characters to cliffhangers—Matinee Melodrama delves deeply into questions about the nature of suspense, the aesthetics of action, and the potentials of formulaic narrative. Yet it also provides readers with a loving look at everything from Zorro’s Fighting Legion to Daredevils of the Red Circle, conveying exactly why these films continue to thrill and enthrall their fans.
