Free: The Path of Leashed Resistance: The Buddy System
This book is a hilarious and heartbreaking look into the life of a family that fell into canine rescue completely by accident but now lives to protect and care for their dogs absolutely on purpose. A great read for anyone who loves dogs!

When Robert and Beth Hading-Yostlot rescued Buddy Lee, they had no idea what they had started. How one dog would spark such compassion in them for mistreated and abandoned animals. But that spark turned into a blazing fire that burned brighter and hotter than they could have ever imagined.

Fueled by destroyed furniture, food follies, bizarre accidents, and near death experiences, the fire spread to every corner of their lives. They experienced both the pleasure of seeing unloved and damaged dogs be made whole and healed by the love of a family and the love of other amazing dogs, as well as the hardships of having to make such great sacrifices to give them what they needed to grow in strength and joy.

They also experienced the happiness of watching a dogs spirit be lit up by life, along with heartbreak when it was extinguished by death.

Forty-plus dogs later, they’re still living a life dedicated to canine rescue and what it means to live by the Buddy System. Free on Kindle.

Dietmar Vogelmann left his country years ago and took a chance, starting a new life in Vietnam. Luckily, his experience in hotel management got him hired at a 5-star beach-side resort, but his initial impression was less than favorable. In fact, he wanted to leave as soon as he arrived.

Through the success and failure of various business ventures, Dietmar learned how determination, a strong work ethic and the support of a loving family can overcome any challenge and desperation. My Different Orient exposes the good, the bad and the ugly side of a life abroad. Free on Kindle.

Free: The Life of Mikey – A Memoir
Michael “Mikey” K. Willis spent his most impressionable years in southern Appalachia. In his eye-opening new memoir, he perfectly captures the local culture of 1960s rural North Carolina. Willis’s memoir shows both the unique heritage of the region and his personal struggles as a young man growing up in an abusive family.

The mountains of North Carolina serve as a deterrent to outsiders, but the locals embrace the beautiful scenery and rugged isolation. This isolation serves to make Mikey’s life a living hell. Even in the wild beauty of the mountains, he can’t escape the violent actions of his parents. If his father isn’t missing, he is beating young Mikey. But his neighbors know Mikey’s father only as the pastor of the local Baptist church. As Willis explores this early-childhood trauma, he also chronicles his encounters with southern gospel music, baptisms, and revival meetings.

Things change for his family when his father accepts a position at a church in Asheville, North Carolina. Mikey suddenly finds himself in the big city. As he makes new friends and encounters the pangs of first love, he finally stands up to his father and plans a better future for himself. Free on Kindle.

Fred H. Kornahrens III is one of South Carolina’s most famous criminals. He was condemned to death row and then, to the shock of the entire state, managed to escape. In the years that followed, people discussed Kornahrens’s story. Everyone had an opinion about the man, but few knew the truth. Now, he tells all in Reflections Upon a Sunny Day.

As a child, Kornahrens suffered from the unstable parenting of his mentally ill mother and an aggressive father. When the two weren’t fighting each other, they were taking out their frustrations on a helpless child.

He hoped he could make up for his parent’s faults by providing for his own family, but this proved to be the biggest mistake of all.

Finally, Kornahrens’s damaged psyche collapsed, and the resulting tragedy devastated the community. He has written his story, trying to make sense of what happened—for himself and for his readers. Free on Kindle.
