Successful as F*ck

A No BS Tale of Screwing Up and Succeeding Anyway

by Riah Gonzalez

Genre: Memoir

Psst! Does anyone know what the hell they are supposed to be doing with their life? Are you letting other people’s opinions determine your trajectory while you figure it out? As Dr. Phil would say, “How’s that working for ya?”

Successful as F*ck: A No BS Tale of Screwing Up and Succeeding Anyway frees you to embrace the bullshit of life and find joy on your own terms. Author Riah Gonzalez dives deep into her traumatic past and turbulent healing process to prove that it is possible to hit rock bottom and still come out stronger on the other side… with your wit intact! Her stories and introspections cut straight through the platitudes and redefine success with unapologetic authenticity.

More than a memoir, Successful as F*ck is an anthem for anyone who’s faced adversity, and a guide for younger generations to avoid the possible pitfalls – and should they find themselves in times of woe anyway, a friend to help them survive, overcome, and thrive.

Conversations with Ayahuasca

Conversations With Ayahuasca

The Last Resort

by Ol Serbon

Genre: Nonfiction Memoir, Spiritual Realism

When all known roads lead to a dead end, it is time to explore the unknowable.

In Conversations with Ayahuasca, author Ol Serbon describes how a series of four annual journeys to the Amazon jungle to partake in Indigenous shamanic ceremonies involving the entheogenic beverage ayahuasca were a catalyst for healing issues in her life and body that were troubling her and entirely altering her perception of reality.

A powerful spiritual guide, Aya, introduced herself to Serbon and invited her to tour what appeared to be alternate dimensions and strange landscapes, like a vast underground city of plants. She also time traveled to an ancient civilization on Earth, perhaps Lemuria, and found evidence of an even more ancient civilization than that, indicating history repeats itself in broad cycles as do our souls. These dreamlike adventures revealed how our consciousness, focus, and resonant frequency shape the form that the world around us takes.

Back at home, Serbon developed a daily meditative practice for putting herself into the right state to receive visions and messages from Aya. Sitting on the deck at her house in a light trance, she would type lessons into her laptop about the arts of dream riding and manifestation, and warnings about impending dangers related to advances in technology, such as integrating AI into human physiology.

Feeling intuitively drawn to India, at last she searched for an enlightened sage who could help her make sense of her experiences.

Her story belongs to everyone in our generation.

Ol Serbon is a pen name. The names I have used in the past, the places where I’ve lived, the things I have done, the little achievements I can claim, the degrees I have earned, and the titles I have held don’t define me. The truth is that none of it defines me. I am an ever-changing, consciously evolving consciousness. This is how I perceive myself.

Originally from Russia, I grew up behind the “Iron Curtain” dreaming about one day living life to its fullest. At the age of nineteen, I came to America, thrilled about finally reaching the “Land of the Free.” I embraced the idea of the American Dream with my whole heart, and for some time I thought that I was living that dream, until my reality began showing cracks.

On the outside, my life seemed perfect. I graduated from Tufts University magna cum laude with the intention to go to medical school, I got married, and I did what I most loved to do: I danced. But after volunteering at a cancer research center, my vision about western medicine began to fall apart. Things didn’t add up. Confused, I decided to take a year off and ponder my decision about going into medicine. I continued dancing and I never looked back.

As a dancer, I traveled the world, competed, performed, and taught dancing. I built a successful business out of my passion. A rare blessing in a world where most people do what they dislike just to make ends meet. Soon, however, my personal relationships and my health spun out of control. Devastated, I started searching for new ways to heal my body and mind. Among other things, books by Carlos Castaneda appeared. Then, after trying all conventional methods, I decided to give la madre ayahuasca a chance. It was my last resort.

Finally, in 2016, I found my way to the Amazon jungle. The rest of my story is in my book.

Chasing Tarzan

Chasing Tarzan

by Catherine Forster

Genre: YA Memoir

In the 1960s, a relentless school bully makes Catherine’s life a living hell. She retreats inward, relying on a rich fantasy life––swinging through the jungle wrapped in Tarzan’s protective arms––and fervent prayers to a God she does not trust. She fasts until she feels faint, she ties a rough rope around her waist as penance, hoping God will see her worthy of His help.

As the second of eight children, Catherine is Mommy’s little helper, and like Mommy, Catherine is overwhelmed. The bullying and the adult responsibilities together foment her anger. She starts smacking her siblings, and becomes her younger sister’s nemesis. Spooked by who she is becoming, Catherine vows to escape for real, before she hurts someone—or herself.

Catherine finds salvation in a high school exchange program: new town, new school, new family, new persona. A passport celebrity. In New Zealand, nobody knows her history or her fears. Except for her Kiwi “mum,” who sees through Catherine’s façade and pulls her out from her inner safe-house.

Exposed, her sense of self implodes. Catherine must finally rethink who she is.

Catherine Forster is an artist, filmmaker, and writer living in the Pacific Northwest … at the moment.

Dirty Money: Memoirs of a Stripper

by Erin Louis

Genre: Nonfiction, Memoir

Having spent over 20 years in the exotic dancing industry, I have grown tired of the typical ill adjusted, drug addicted stripper story. Contrary to the reigning stereotype, I offer a candid look at my own adventures in the industry and how it has affected my life. I present my memoirs as a rebuttal to the talk show depiction of exotic dancers as chemically challenged, poorly disguised prostitutes with severe daddy and body image issues. Starting with my childhood, I recount the experiences I had and what led to my choice to become a stripper. I recall the funny, sad, and sometimes gross moments in my career. I try to answer all the questions most people ask me once they’ve had a few too many drinks and finally give in to their curiosity about my naughty job.

Unconventional

A Memoir of Entrepreneurism, Politics, and Pot

by Jamie Andrea Garzot

Genre: Memoir

Jamie Andrea Garzot was one of the least likely people to become a cannabis entrepreneur, advocate, and industry pioneer. She had no business background. She was not involved in politics. She had only a four-figure capital investment to start with. And, surprisingly, she had very limited experience with cannabis products. So how did Garzot find herself at the forefront of California’s cannabis movement?

In this inspirational memoir, Garzot describes her trajectory from a cannabis retail rookie navigating an unregulated market to a cannabis authority. During her time in the industry, she developed a wildly successful line of artisanal edibles, managed $12 million a year in all-cash sales, and became an advocate for cannabis legislation at the state capitol—all of which led to an eventual acquisition by High Times, one of the most recognized names in the industry. From office intrigues, personal crises, and shifting regulations to teamwork, innovation, and community leadership, Garzot, with good-natured humor, shares how thinking creatively, planning ahead, and forming connections in the most unlikely places contributed to her success in a continually shifting business landscape.

Unconventional is the story of an industry in its wild heyday, the inner workings of local and state government and cannabis’s dicey road to regulation, and the seismic changes in the way cannabis was distributed and sold. But it is also the story of one woman’s tenacious spirit and all the lessons she learned the hard way—by refusing to give power to fear, taking risks, building community in a volatile environment, and listening to what people wanted—and how staying true to her vision paid off every step of the way.

Anyone who has ever dreamed of following their gut and reinventing their life will be inspired by Garzot’s unusual and unconventional journey.

A Long Way From Home

by Christian Warren Freed

War is Hell. Anyone who has ever put on a uniform and purposefully went to where the enemy was intent on killing him can attest to that. But instead of a singular definition of Hell that religion preaches, war is so much more. It is Hell on the families left behind. Hell on the mind and spirit. Hell on the nerves. Hell on coming home and trying to remember where you fit in. Yes, war is Hell. A Long Way From Home is the compilation of my experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan from 2002-2006. It gives first hand accounts of some of the most gruesome fighting and a behind the scenes look at what really went on from various levels.
