It is amazing how little it takes to sell away your soul. Ten dollars and 50 cents. That´s all it took to purchase some graphics and bold fonts and 200 neon fliers from the copy store. Each invites the regulars and tourists alike to the community stage to the east of the market. There, at sundown, they are promised a show beyond their imagination.

If you have spent any time trying to master online marketing, you know that the competition is more intense today than it ever has been. Gone are the days of quickly moving up in the rankings of search engines. While it may be easier to build an attractive site than it was just a few years ago, the battle to attract and retain customers is becoming more intense. And even the most loyal members of your list are more savvy and cautious than ever before. They’ve seen it all, and they are no longer willing to jump just because you offered them a free report. So what’s an Internet marketer to do? Well, there are a few things that can make you stand out in a crowd. Well written content, in-demand products, appealing graphics - these are all important. But still you’re just one of many, vying for the same customers as every other Internet marketer, including large corporations whose budgets you can never hope to match. One of the best solutions for this problem is to move away from the jaded crowd and to focus your efforts on a niche. Niche marketing is not new, but the Internet of today allows creative marketers an opportunity to drill further and further down to the micro niche level, where the competition is less intense and the profit potential is greater. But micro niche marketing is not easier or intuitive. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Robert Plank. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/146296/bk_acx0_146296_sample.mp3.

You don´t play it...it plays you. Hemsby is thriving; a seaside town on the up. The holidaymakers are flooding in, and so is the money. For the majority of those who live there, the resort is idyllic. But not for Jamie Garrett. Fifteen years old and bored to tears, Hemsby is the last place he wants to be. Aside from the occasional sea rescue, nothing exciting ever happens. That´s about to change as a mysterious new game arrives at the beachfront arcade. No one knows of its origin, or the rules of the game, but soon, it is the talk of the resort, attracting children far and wide with its complex game-play and surreal graphics. When the children of the resort become the perpetrators of uncharacteristic and brutal violence, Jamie realizes that it is a side-effect of the game and sets out to pull the plug on the machine before it is too late. Dare you play The Bad Game? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jonathan Johns. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/106960/bk_acx0_106960_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Featuring brand-new stories, poems, prose, and graphics by: Lee Child, Joyce Carol Oates, Linda Yablonsky, Jonathan Santlofer, Abraham Rodriguez, Dean Haspiel, Maggie Estep, Bob Holman, Cheryl Lu-Lien Tan, Amanda Stern, Jan Heller Levi, Josh Gilbert, Edward M. Gmez, Raymond Mungo, Rachel Shteir, Philip Spitzer, and Thad Ziolkowski. From the introduction by Jonathan Santlofer: ´´Like film, literature has been no stranger to marijuana and hashish, going back to Charles Baudelaire´s 1860 Artificial Paradises, in which the French poet not only describes the effects of hashish but postulates it could be an aid in creating an ideal world. The pleasures, pains, and complexities of marijuana are more than hinted at in works by William S. Burroughs, Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, Henry Miller, Hunter S. Thompson, and Thomas Pynchon, to name just a few, and I hope this anthology will add to that legacy and keep the flame of pot literature burning bright... ´´This diverse group of writers, poets, and artists makes it clear that there is no one point of view here. Each of them approaches the idea of marijuana with the sharp eye of an observer, anthropologist, and artist, and expands upon it. Some writing projects are difficult; this one was smooth and mellow and a continual pleasure... I hope you will sit back, relax, and enjoy these wide-ranging tales of the most debated and discussed drug of our time. Though, according to former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, ´That is not a drug, it´s a leaf.´´´The full list of narrators includes: Scott Brick, Jonathan Santlofer, Elizabeth Evans, Oliver Wyman, Allyson Johnson, Karen White, Kevin Free, Joe Barrett, Christina Delaine, David Ledoux, Johnny Heller, Scott Aiello, Dick Hill, Erin Moon, and Jennifer Van Dyck. 1.
