Between 1895 and 1929, more than 15,000 motion pictures were made in the United States. We call these works “silent films,” but they were accompanied by an enormous body of music, including works adapted or arranged from pre-existing works, as well as newly composed pieces for theater orchestras, organists, or pianists. While many films and pieces are lost, a considerable amount of material remains extant and available for use in research and performance. Music for Silent Film: A Guide to North American Resources is a unique resource on North American archives and English-language materials available in for those interested in this repertoire. Part I contains information about archives of primary source materials including full and compiled scores, sheet music, published anthologies of music, interviews with cinema musicians, periodicals, and instruction books. Part II surveys the English-language scholarship on silent film music in articles, book chapters, essay collections, and monographs through 2015. The book is fully indexed for ease of access to these important sources on film music.

Precocious teenager Lutwee Wiggins has spent his life in an orphanage. His humdrum life is thrown upside down as December 16th (the day that strange magic stirs worldwide) approaches. It is on that very night that Lord Abraham Hedgewick, an eccentric, shape-shifting knight who claims to have known Lutwee's parents, lands on the orphanage roof bearing twofold news: Lutwee is a descendant of a long line of warriors known as the Paladins, and he is the target of impending danger at the hands of the orphanage headmaster. After escaping to Hedgewick's home in the mysterious World Beyond, Lutwee quickly finds that training to become a Paladin is not as easy as he expected, and that the magic of the world beyond is more treacherous than

Things Church Girls Dont Talk About is a comical, yet poignant, story of a young church girl and her mother in search of true faith amidst a sea of toxic religion and eccentric Southern characters. Meet Mama Careen whose sass gets her into trouble when she announces her husbands adultery at his surprise birthday party. Enjoy the antics of her sister, Justine, who gets tipsy and does a tell off to her brother-in-law's bow-legged mistress at his funeral. Sympathize with Maggie as she tries to forgive and forget her cold, Irish father. Scoff at the narcissism of Jimmy Ray, a quirky preacher with a PH.Da Pentecostal Hair Do. If you have a bone to pick with religion, or even if you dont, you will be wooed by this charming and powerful tale of how mercy triumphs over judgment. Excerpts from THINGS CHURCH GIRLS DONT TALK ABOUT Maggie McBride on Southern sayings: and for your information, a Southern woman can say anything about anyone no matter how cutting or evil if she just follows it up with bless her heart, or something similar. Dont go repeating this, but Mrs. Johnsons loose daughters, Babs and Lola, became Porn whoresbless their hearts. Violets thighs looked like a tub full of cottage cheese in that bathing suitbless her heart. Mrs. Murphys lusty cousins, Beebe and Hortence, are both living in sinbless their hearts. I think you get the point. ********** Careen McBride and her unique, attention seeking suicide note: Dearest Martin, Night and day, I have been down on my knees praying to God that you would leave that butt-ugly Ellen woman and come back to me and Maggie. But no, my prayers did nothing but hit the ceiling. You are still with that home wrecker who is not worth the bullets it would take to blow her brains out. Since youve been gone, I feel that there is nothing left for me to live for and I might as well just go to be with our dear Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. In the event that I get up my nerve and decide to take my life, send our Maggie to live with my rich sister, Justine, if you and your bow-legged bitch dont want her. That way, at least one of us can live in Mountain Brook. Sincerely, Careen

This book is for women who know, perhaps only deep in their heart, that they need an answer to the question, "Do you think I'm beautiful?" Readers will come to understand that the question is uniquely feminine, placed there by the Creator to woo them to Himself. Along the way, women will learn about the distractions that can keep them from the One who calls them beautiful, what it takes to return to His embrace, and what delights await them there. Angela's skillful, moving writing style is peppered with warm and funny stories from her own life that readers will immediately identify with. And the practical Bible teaching Angela offers will help readers bridge the gulf between the life a woman longs for and the life she actually has.

The Prodigal Troll is a tale of a human child raised by a band of mythological creatures that is both hysterical and moving. When Lord Gruethrist's castle is laid under siege by an invading baron, he sends a trusted knight and nursemaid off with his infant son. Their escape across a wilderness landscape populated by fantastic creatures and torn by war takes unexpected turns until the baby is finally adopted by a mother troll grieving for her own lost child. Christened "Maggot" by a hostile stepfather, the human boy grows up amid the crude but democratic trolls until he leaves the band to rediscover the world of humankind. But the world of man is a complex and capricious place. Maggot must master its strange ways if he is to survive... let alone win the heart and hand of the Lady Portia. Finlay's society of trolls are unlike any you've ever read before, and his matriarchal medieval world, pitted as they are against an analog of Native American tribesmen, provides a rich setting for many poignant social and political insights.

Jazmin Ashley Conolly was born in Miami, Florida. Her grandmother (Daphne Cheddesingh) took care of her while she was a baby and taught her to be positive. "You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you," she would tell her. When she was 9 years old, her grandmother encouraged her to write a story for kids. She came up with the title, "The Way GOD Blessed Old Man Hammer." Her grandmother helped her write down the ideas for the book but she got busy with school work and did not have time to finish the story. Early in 2009, her grandmother encouraged her to finish the story. With much encouragement, she finally finished the story. Jazmin attended Perrine Baptist Academy, a Christian school, where she was taught to fear GOD and love her fellowman.
