A bully's been tormenting her for years. A witch is the medium. An actress the victim. After Carolyn wrecks her singing career, she and her best friend Michael set out to New England for a spellbinding adventure--a complex brew of suspense, drama, and the supernatural spiced with a dose of humor and fun. Rising talent Carolyn Sohier dreams of breaking into the spotlight and achieving the kind of stardom her father--a deceased hippy-musician--could never realize. But severe stage fright relegates her to singing backup and making cheesy television commercials. Carolyn can't seem to tap into the energy trapped deep inside her and show her talent to the world. Self-doubt plagues her worse than the demon she vomits up on stage at Radio City Music Hall. Now, the creature follows her around the set of her first feature film--Witches of Salem--being shot on location in New England. Salem resident Rebecca Farney longs for acceptance in the Official Witch of Salem's coven and recognized as a real witch. Despite the community's protest, Rebecca can't pass up a chance to be part of the movie and turn Witches of Salem into a camp hit like her favorite television show Bewitched. Perhaps casting a spell on the film's actors and crew could win her recognition from the Salem coven... Michael, Carolyn's best friend, has spent a lifetime protecting the star and bolstering her ego. Yet all the money he and his partner--a software tycoon from Seattle--have, can't shield her from what's about to happen...

Everyday consumers buy into the concept of brands and their associated meanings - the perception of quality, a symbolic relationship, a vicarious experience, or even a sense of identity. Marketing Semiotics suggests that the extent to which consumers recognize, internalize, and relate to brand meanings is not only an academic question. These meanings contribute to 'brand equity', the financial value of intangible brand benefits that exceed the use value of goods, and impacts upon a firm's financial performance. Therefore, the management of brand equity demands first and foremost the management of brand meanings, or semiotics. The book uses structural semiotics, a discipline that extends the laws of structural linguistics to the analysis of verbal, visual, and spatial sign systems, to shed light on the cultural codes and discourse of brands. It proposes that semiotic research should form the cornerstone of brand equity management, since brands rely so heavily on sign systems that contribute to profitability by distinguishing brands from simple commodities, from competitors, and engaging consumers in the brand world. The book includes dozens of global business cases where semiotics has been used to refocus, reposition, or extend the brand to new products, customers, and markets. Drawing upon twenty years of academic and consulting experience, the book provides actionable direction for steering brands through technological and cultural change, differentiating brands in the competitive environment, and counteracting the natural depletion of brand meaning over time.

On a summer night like any other, an emergency call sounds in the quarters of Andira Tal, Lancer of Alsea. The news is shocking: not only is there other intelligent life in the universe, but it's landing on the planet right now. Tal leads the first responding team and ends up rescuing aliens who have a frightening story to tell. They protected Alsea from a terrible fate-but the reprieve is only temporary. Captain Ekayta Serrado of the Fleet ship Caphenon serves the Protectorate, a confederation of worlds with a common political philosophy. She has just sacrificed her ship to save Alsea, yet political maneuvering may mean she did it all for nothing. Alsea is now a prize to be bought and sold by galactic forces far more powerful than a tiny backwater planet. But Lancer Tal is not one to accept a fate imposed by aliens, and she'll do whatever it takes to save her world.
