“The Stone magic makes these books such a pleasure to read and share.” — Rendezvous “Her characters live with the shadows over their lives and make the best of them, honorably, courageously, and generously. We can be happier for knowing these people in the short run, and better for knowing them in the long run.” — Reviewer’s Choice Reviews A splash of suspense, a dash of Christmas magic, and a sleighful of love. . . A ghost of Christmas past makes the holidays a difficult time for homicide lieutenant Nicholas Hunter. It was just days before a long ago Christmas that Nick’s dangerously unbalanced mother disappeared with his four-year-old brother—the brother that the then eight-year-old Nicholas had vowed always to protect. Thirty years later, Nick continues his unrelenting search for the brother he lost, and now—once again at Christmastime—a psychopath is forcing women from Nick’s past to publicly humiliate themselves in an effort to destroy their careers and draw Nick into a life-or-death game of catch-me-if-you-can. It is against this dramatic backdrop that Nick, who has always believed that there is no place for love in his deeply scarred heart, meets Claire. Claire was an innocent sixteen-year-old when she became the victim of an apparent hit-and-run accident. The life-threatening head injury she suffered imparted an extraordinary gift, but also left her with an intense foreboding of imminent personal harm so terrifying that she felt compelled the flee the city she loved. Now, fifteen years later, Claire returns to Seattle intent on unmasking and conquering that enigmatic fear—only to discover that its cause is very real. At a tender age, Allison Prentice comes to the devastating conclusion that she is simply the wrong child for her wildly successful, perfectionist parents. No matter how hard she strives to meet their unbounded expectations, her parents' approval remains an elusive dream. Even her brilliant academic achievements receive faint praise. For the shy, unhappy Allison, the solution is escape: as a child, into her own private world; then, as soon as she graduates from high school, from the city in which she grew up. When Allison finally returns to Seattle, it is as a superstar intellectual property litigator. She is just beginning to find happiness—and love with a man named Lucas—when the psychopath chooses her as his next pawn. Praise for the Novels of Katherine Stone: "Katherine Stone's magical touch makes A Midnight Clear a story for all seasons.”—Book Page “Remarkably romantic and thoroughly enchanting.”—Rendezvous on Pearl Moon “Poignant . . . Cass is an intrepid heroine, but it is Chase who wins our hearts when he refuses to allow Cass’s seeming betrayal to stop him from protecting his beloved.”—Midwest Book Review on Bed of Roses “Fairytale elements mix with those of a present day romance for . . . thoroughly enjoyable results.”—Kirkus Reviews on Rainbows Katherine Stone writes “in the vein of Danielle Steel and Sandra Brown”—Library Journal “Alluring . . . Fascinating . . .

The use of social media in public health education/promotion has been increasing due, in part, to its ability to remove physical access and geographical barriers for users. Specifically, social media provides an outlet to increase and promote translational health communication strategies and the effective dissemination of health information and data in ways that allow users to not only utilize, but also to create and share pertinent health information. Although social media applications in public health and health promotion have yielded success in terms of generating support structures and networks for effective health behavior change, there are challenges and complications associated with use of social media that also need to be addressed (e.g., managing misinformation, ensuring compliance with privacy protection regulations). This Special Issue aims to explore social media as a translational health promotion tool by bridging principles of health education and health communication. Broadly, this Special Issue is seeking original submissions that examine: (1) the method with which social media users access, negotiate, and create health information that is both actionable and impactful for diverse audiences; (2) strategies for overcoming challenges to using social media in health promotion; and (3) best practices for designing, implementing, and/or evaluating social media campaigns and forums in public health. Special interest will be given to innovative submissions that expand and build upon traditional health education approaches with health communication theories and models. Other manuscript types of interest include relevant position papers, brief reports, and commentaries.

Formula One has long maintained a glitzy aura that masks dark and strange goings-on in the background. But with the 2019 season came a force louder than Formula One could dream of muffling: William Storey, the founder of British energy drink startup Rich Energy. Storey became a multimillion-dollar sponsor of the Haas Formula One team a year after records showed Rich Energy having a mere $770 in the bank. He equated his doubters to moon-landing truthers and publicly mocked both the Haas team and the entities winning legal disputes against him. But where were actual cans of Rich Energy, and did the supposed sponsorship funds exist? In the six months between Storey's first race as a Formula One sponsor and his very public exit, he stole the spotlight with a loud mouth and an active Twitter account. Haas team boss Guenther Steiner once described the Rich Energy news cycle as: "I'm getting sick of answering these stupid fucking questions on a race weekend. I've never seen any fucking thing like this." No one else had, either. This book uncovers the complete, bizarre story.
