From the New York Times best-selling author of The Southern Book Club's Guide to Slaying Vampires comes a hilarious and terrifying haunted house story in a thoroughly contemporary setting: a furniture superstore. Something strange is happening at the Orsk furniture superstore in Cleveland, Ohio. Every morning, employees arrive to find broken Kjerring bookshelves, shattered Glans water goblets, and smashed Liripip wardrobes. Sales are down, security cameras reveal nothing, and store managers are panicking. To unravel the mystery, three employees volunteer to work a nine-hour dusk-till-dawn shift. In the dead of the night, they’ll patrol the empty showroom floor, investigate strange sights and sounds, and encounter horrors that defy the imagination.

We all realize how important customers are. We all know what will help build a good relationship with our customers. Yet so often it is done badly. Unlike great products and low prices, great customer service is hard to copy. In a fiercely competitive world, differentiation is the name of the game.Capturing Customers' Heartsanalyzes companies where the product or the company itself generates a special reaction in a customer, something much more than brand loyalty - true affection. Building 12 components of charisma on the foundation of service delivery, it uses examples of best and worst practice to pinpoint the forces that will win new customers, keep them and capture their hearts.Capture your customers' hearts - their loyalty will follow.There has been a crucial focus on customer service for at least 15 years. So does this mean that we can concentrate on the next big thing? Not a chance. Survey after survey has shown that really good customer service is still the exception. And with customer expectations higher than ever, and the competition not standing still - especially with the emergence of the wired world - an outstanding customer relationship is the only safe way of building differentiation.To make a customer relationship the driving force behind repeat business and differentiation calls for a quantum shift in thinking and doing; from customer friendliness to customer charisma. A business with charisma gives the customer something very special. When you deal with a business with charisma, you want to tell others about it. You want to share your feelings. This book is about giving your business charisma. Capturing Customers' Hearts analyzes what lies behind customers' emotional attachment to a product or service, and teaches you how to create customer charisma so that not only is your company winning new customers, but is keeping its existing ones.You'll never look at your customers in the same way again.Reviews"Essential reading - every page presents insights and facts that are now crucial to differentiation and success." Adrian E. Lucas, CEO, Imerge Limited "Yet again Brian goes to the heart of the issue giving an inspired insight into the realities of managing customer relationships. A must for companies who want to stand out like a beacon by going the extra light year for their customers..." Tony Solomon, Marketing Communications Director, Zurich IFA Group"Brian Clegg's new book is a 'tour de force'. It ranges wide over the vast terrain of customer service as well as digging deep into some of the fundamental issues that still need to be addressed. Not only did I learn a lot from this excellent book but I found it incredibly enjoyable to read." David Freemantle, author, The Stimulus Factor "Provides brilliant insights into attracting and retaining customers." Tim Robison, Director, Lucent Technologies

"Creepy crawling" was the Manson Family's practice of secretly entering someone's home and, without harming anyone, leaving only a trace of evidence that they had been there, some reminder that the sanctity of the private home had been breached. Now, author Jeffrey Melnick reveals just how much the Family creepy crawled their way through Los Angeles in the sixties and then on through American social, political, and cultural life for close to fifty years, firmly lodging themselves in our minds. Even now, it is almost impossible to discuss the sixties, teenage runaways, sexuality, drugs, music, California, and even the concept of family without referencing Manson and his "girls." Not just another history of Charles Manson, Creepy Crawling explores how the Family weren't so much outsiders but emblematic of the Los Angeles counterculture freak scene, and how Manson worked to connect himself to the mainstream of the time. Ever since they spent two nights killing seven residents of Los Angeles—what we now know as the "Tate-LaBianca murders"—the Manson family has rarely slipped from the American radar for long. From Emma Cline's The Girls to the recent TV show Aquarius, the family continues to find an audience. What is it about Charles Manson and his family that captivates us still? Author Jeffrey Melnick sets out to answer this question in this fascinating and compulsively readable cultural history of the Family and their influence from 1969 to the present.

From Frankenstein and Dracula to Psycho and The Chainsaw Massacre, horror fiction has provided our culture with some of its most enduring themes and narratives. Considering horror fiction both as a genre and as a social phenomenon, Joseph Grixti provides a theoretical and historical framework for reconsidering horror and the cultural apparatus that surrounds it. First published in 1989, this book looks at shifts in the genre’s meaning – its fascination with excess, its commentaries on the categories and boundaries of culture – and at interpretations of horror from psychology, psychoanalysis, sociology, cultural and media studies. Terrors of Uncertainty brings together a provocative range of perspectives from across the disciplines, which combine to raise important questions about the relationship between fiction and society, and the way in which we use fiction to resolve or evade our fears of uncertainty.

New York Times and USA Today Best-selling paranormal romance author Felicity Heaton presents Hunger (Vampires Realm Romance Series Book 8) Betrayed by one of her own and turned into a vampire, hunter Eve is consumed by her hunger for vengeance and has spent five years surviving hell, driven to take the life of the man she once loved. But just as she is about to close in on the hunter-turned-vampire, an event is set in motion that threatens to see him slip beyond her grasp forever—the leader of her bloodline has sent an escort to bring her to the family’s mansion. To a nest of the very creatures she once hunted and loathes. A vampire assassin hardened by centuries of service, Tor is a man of discipline and loyalty, never straying from his mission or the rules set out for him, and has purged all his weaknesses, including his emotions. But the moment he meets the broken, fiery female he is to escort to Oslo, something dangerous awakens in him, something possessive and powerful, and when he is pulled into a deadly game of cat and mouse with the man who betrayed her, Tor discovers he will do anything to protect the woman slowly claiming his heart and give her the vengeance she desires—even break all the rules. Can Eve embrace her new vampire nature in order to have her revenge and find a reason to live again in Tor? Can Tor and Eve stop the man who betrayed her and the deaths of thousands of innocents? Or will he succeed in creating a new army of hybrid vampires who will rise up against the purebloods?
