    Ebook by Barney Kamp

    Computing for Seniors is written for seniors, by a senior. When Barney Kamp began teaching at Calvin College, he developed a course outline to fit a ten-session period of computer classes. He later realized while teaching at a retirement community that a much broader computer course was needed to address both new and semi-experienced users. Starting from square one, this helpful guide shows seniors how to use Microsoft Windows 8 to send and receive emails, write notes and letters to friends, browse the Web, and even use a computer to pay bills. Written in plain language, not technical jargon, Computing for Seniors is an easy-to-use guide to the world of computing.

    About the Author

    When Barney Kamp began teaching at the Calvin Academy for Lifelong Learning at Calvin College, he developed a course outline to fit a ten-session period of classes that involved the use of specific computer programs. He later realized while teaching at Waterford Place, a retirement community in Jenison, MI, that a much broader computer course was needed that would address both new and semi-experienced users. Barney is a strong advocate of computer use among seniors, not only because he feels that they should use computers, but also because they need them in order to keep cognitive skills alive and well.

    Ebook by Angus Brownfield

    Traditional cosmology turns upside down in Angus Brownfields' fable about degrees of good and evil among humans. Told in multiple voices—human, angelic and demonic—An Angel at Satan's Ball begins when the Almighty bets Satan that His distinguished angel Ulysses can’t be inveigled by his fallen son’s craftiest hunter, Semyaza. As Semyaza attempts to bring down Ulysses by attacking his love, the human Sarafina, all must struggle between their own literal and figurative heavens and hells as they learn of fate, love and sacrifice.

    About theAuthor

    Angus Brownfield was born in Iola, Kansas, in 1937. His place of birth was an accident, as his mother was visiting an old friend when he decided to emerge. Fortunately, the friend's husband had delivered Angus's four older siblings, and his debut was without incident. Born in the second dip of the Great Depression, Angus and his family went where they had to in order to survive. Thus his first memories are of midwestern cities and midwestern values. Although schooled in English literature at the University of California, Berkeley, he strayed into public health and medical care planning, authoring businesslike research proposals and long-range plans that molder in the archives of various bureaucracies. In 1986 he shifted gears and began writing fiction. In 2011 several novels conceived in the late eighties and early nineties emerged from long gestation as ebooks. The productivity continues with An Angel at Satan's Ball (2013) and, scheduled for early 2014, Bread to the Wise. Angus currently lives and writes in the Rogue Valley, Oregon.
