Modern History Press
Prof. Ramesh, with his thorough knowledge of the Western and Indian poetics, as well as the culture of the land is the right person to explain and interpret the poems of T. Vasudeva Reddy's Fleeting Bubbles. This collection of poems holds a mirror as it were to the existing social situations in India. Following an introduction, this book explores Fleeting Bubbles in six phases: Rural, Urban, Political and Social, Subjective, General, and Spiritual phases. Each chapter focuses on the aspects of a particular thematic pattern as it is analyzed and explained.

Reddy and make it accessible to the average reader.

The Lupanarium (3 Copies)**
Barnes & Noble Press
In a reimagined Ancient Rome, during the last days of the republic, enslaved prostitutes are brainwashed to eat and sleep only after sex. Matt-Lin—a surly teenage girl—is trafficked to the world's preeminent brothel, the Lupanarium. She is tasked to perform a dangerous live sex-act in the arena with Jak—the Lupanarium's most popular male prostitute and gladiator. Jak attempts to mentor Matt-Lin, but she proves unwilling to please her clients, and she vigilantly seeks a way to escape, putting her life, and his, in danger.
The Lupanarium is the first book in The Many Trials of Matt-Lin and Jak, a series about trauma survivors learning how to love. With the amount of sex in the series, it would be easy to categorize it "erotica" or "pornography." However, this book's primary function is not to titillate. Instead, it comments on, critiques, and satirizes these genres, which often serve to normalize rape culture.
**This book comes with a graphic content warning for its depictions of sexual assault and child rape. Adult readers only, please.

Full of entertaining anecdotes as well as forty-seven passages from Scripture, Battle's Unwelcome Opportunity: Overcoming Life's Greatest Challenges will help others also see the possibility, hope, and light in any situation.

The Prophetic Mayan Queen: K'inuuw Mat of Palenque (2 Copies)
Made for Wonder Publishing
She was born to serve the Goddess Ix Chel. But K'inuuw Mat is destined to continue the Palenque (Lakam Ha) dynasty by marriage to Tiwol, fourth son of famous ruler Pakal. Trained in prophetic arts, she uses scrying to foresee the face of the man with whom she will bear the dynastic heir―but it is not her husband's image. She is shocked upon arriving at Palenque to recognize that face as her husband's older brother, Kan Bahlam. They are immediately attracted, sharing deep interest in astronomy. Though she resists, the magnetic force of their attraction propels them into forbidden embraces, until Kan Bahlam designs a bold plan that would solve his inability to produce a son―if he can gain his brother's cooperation.
Set in the splendor of Lakam Ha's artistic and scientific zenith, royal family conflicts and ambitions play out in a tapestry of brilliant Mayan accomplishments in calendars, astronomy, architecture, arts, and secret language codes that will astound people centuries later. As K'inuuw Mat contends with explosive emotions, she must answer the Goddess' mandate to preserve Mayan culture for future generations. Her passion with Kan Bahlam leads to a pale daughter and bold son who carry this out as their civilization begins the decline and eventual collapse her prophetic vision foresees.
