Life as a slave in the Royal House of the Nirreth isn´t quite what 19-year-old Jet imagined when she grew up in the human skag pits outside Vancouver. Between bouts of babysitting a nine-year-old alien with a sometimes-dangerous crush on her, Jet spends her days training for the Rings, the televised Nirreth obsession that involves watching humans navigate perilous courses filled with both real and virtual enemies. As Jet is the first female human ever to run in the Rings, everyone fully expects her to die in the first round... or at the very least, to do so poorly that the judges, the infamous Rings Board, will kick her out even if she survives. Then again, according to Richter, the leader of the human rebels, Jet might not make it to the Rings at all. He tells Jet that first she has to convince the Nirreth elite that she´s ´´docile” enough to be trusted, or she won´t make it long enough to compete. In order to do that, Jet has to become a pet of one of the Nirreth themselves, which usually involves not only sharing that Nirreth´s bed, but being stung by their venom on a regular basis. When Laksri, the leader of the Nirreth rebels and Richter´s military and strategic partner, offers to take that role, Jet´s relationship with the Nirreth becomes more complicated than she could ever have imagined. 1.

Das Phänomen des sogenannten Islamischen Staates hat er von Anfang an intensiv erforscht. Mithilfe der Mutter eines deutschen Dschihadisten hat er im Jahr 2016 Kontakte knüpfen und das Terrornetzwerk in Syrien und Irak besuchen können. Nach dieser Erfahrung hielt er Vorträge zum Thema Rekrutierung und Methoden des IS. Matthias Richter is a lawyer in the field of international law and expert in the field of terrorism.

Whenever I tell people I can help them write a book in four weeks, I always get a look of confusion and dismay. ´´That can´t be done! Books take years and years of methodical research and time consuming edits!´´ Well the fact is, yes it can be done. We now live in an age of instant gratification and the old ways of writing a book on a typewriter have long passed. I have helped many authors write and publish their stories in just a few short weeks. The process is truly amazing. The first part is getting over that mental hurdle in your mind that you must work on a novel for 10 plus years. I think that´s a big hurdle for people to overcome. Once you have opened your mind to the process and changed your attitude toward writing and publishing, you will embrace the wonderful new age of quick results. The methods that I am sharing with you in this guide book are the same principals I give workshops on and teach my authors. Once you take the great feat of writing a book and breaking it down into small, simple steps, anything is possible. When people set forth to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, they do not do it in one big leap, but by putting one foot in front of the other. Most people think writing a book is a huge mountain to overcome, yet they are looking at the top from the bottom. They don´t see the small, little steps in front of them that they must begin with. I have broken down the complex writing process into an easy-to-follow streamlined process for anyone to write a book in four weeks. It just takes discipline to stay on track. You can´t hike halfway up the mountain and then decide it´s too much work. Just consistently take the small steps each day, and soon, you will be on your way to becoming a published author!
