Since it first hit bookstores, The Xactilias Project has been blowing people’s minds with its thrilling story and shocking plot. Now, fans are freaking out in response to news that a sequel is on the way.

With an ever-growing fan base, The Xactilias Project has earned considerable praise from critics, such as the Best Book Journal’s Lois McGinty, who calls the book “tense, fascinating and beautifully written.”

Now, like countless other readers, McGinty is eagerly anticipating the arrival of the sequel.

“The first book was really a classic thriller,” says McGinty. “It’s no wonder so many people are excited about a part two. You can count me right along with them.”


Ronald J. Bushwell of the HBC Literary Review agrees, calling the news a really big announcement.

Dubbed The Xactilias Stratagem, the sequel is set to be released on November 23, 2018, but it’s available for pre-sale at Amazon right now.

A genius … a mysterious organization … and a dark plot to change the world.

In one of the most intriguing books of the year, The Xactilias Project takes readers on a thrilling, roller-coaster journey into a dark and mysterious world.

Both readers and critics have called it one of the most captivating books of the year. What’s more, Amazon is hyping the thriller by discounting the Kindle version by over 50 percent.

“It’s a really fantastic book,” says Ronald J. Bushwell, HBC Literary Review. “It’s also a really fantastic deal, especially if you read by Kindle.”

“It’s tense, fascinating and beautifully written,” says McGinty. “Once I started reading, I couldn’t put it down.”

Soon she finds herself an accomplice to sinister happenings, led by a mysterious organization with unlimited influence. Faced with a bizarre environment, terrifying villains, shocking revelations and a deepening mystery, Claire must find a way to escape the inescapable, before they hijack her gifts to do something unimaginable.

“It’s just and immersive, very well-written roller-coaster ride with surprises around every corner,” says Sarah McDaniels of The Candid Book Review. “Best of all, it’s just part one of what will be a three-part series, so readers are in store for even greater things down the road.”

Large Breasted Women May Die Early, says Study

According to many, large breasted women have a significant advantage over their smaller breasted counterparts. Why else would so many pay thousands to increase their bra size via surgical operations? Contrary to popular belief, however, a new study suggests that having large breasts might be a dangerous burden.

What Does the Study Indicate?

Large breasted women are subject to a higher risk of disease mortality, according to a study by a group in the United Kingdom. Through their examinations, accredited researchers, Chaminda Sellahewa, Peter Nightingale and Amtul R Carmichael, determined that large breasted women have a higher risk for nodal metastasis, a particularly fatal type of breast cancer.


According to the study, large breasted women had a significantly greater tumor size than similar patients with smaller breasts. The researchers determined that the size of the women’s’ breast tended to be a precursor of greater lymph node activity which may lead to wider expansion of the disease; however, interestingly, the weight of the breast measured after mastectomy had little correlation with mortality.

The researchers were unable to determine the cause of the increased risk, although they theorized that it might have something to do with the fact that large breasted women tend to be heavier and exercise less. They also hypothesized that large breasted women might have trouble detecting their tumors early enough for positive intervention, because the overall mass of the breast impeded physical detection.

The #MeToo Movement Is Infantilizing Women, and that’s Bad for Everyone

Aziz

Framed as a long-overdue feminist call for action and awareness, the #MeToo movement has quickly devolved into a bully pulpit for angry women who would rather cast blame than take responsibility for bad choices.

The most recent example involves Aziz Ansari, who was hurled into the #MeToo wood chipper, based on an article published on the website Babe.net. In it, the writer and her anonymous subject “Grace” detail the latter’s uncomfortable encounter with Ansari, during which both willingly performed oral sex on the other, despite Grace giving what she calls verbal and non-verbal cues that she wasn’t much interested.


Since its publication, the Babe article has sparked heated arguments, not just between men and women, but among feminists, who have questioned the merit of the accusations. After calling the article little more than revenge porn, Atlantic contributing editor, Caitlin Flanagan was joined by other prominent female media members, including HLN host Ashleigh Banfield, who ridiculed Grace for harming the credibility of the #MeToo movement, while calling the Babe article “a story of a bad date.”

Despite these characterizations, many women have applauded Grace and Babe for shedding light on what they say is an issue of consent. While the law may seek to define consent in definitive terms, modern women are attempting to redefine it with a broad, unrealistic definition.

According to New York Times writer Bari Weiss, many women claim that consent is only consent when it is “affirmative, active, continuous and enthusiastic.” While it shouldn’t surprise anyone that this definition has stirred up plenty of debate, few seem to realize that neither side’s opinion really matters that much.

Feminism in the Real World

Many women are tweeting the need to educate young males on how to judge consent, at least from the modern female perspective. In fact, there is some evidence that this type of early education can help reduce instances of sexual coercion, harassment and even assault.

It seems unlikely, however, that any amount of education or tweeting will completely eradicate confusion over consent. What it has done, however, is infantilize women to the point where they are unwilling or unable to assume responsibility for bad choices.

For her part, Ashleigh Banfield expressed dismay that Grace did not respond to her experience with Aziz by standing up, smoothing her dress and leaving. In her Atlantic article, The Humiliation of Aziz Ansari, Caitlin Flanagan expressed similar concerns when she decried “a country full of young women who don’t know how to call a cab.”

Yet, while #MeToo is now polarizing key figures within the movement, its failure really lies in the length of its tentacles. While important in workplaces where men of power have control over female subordinates, #MeToo really has no place in general society, where women are free to stand up for themselves against men who have no real power over them.

In that arena, there are people – male and female – who lack integrity and scruples. There are politicians who will lie to get votes. There are salesmen who will bilk senior citizens out of money. And, yes, there are men who will try to get in a woman’s pants, even if she isn’t “enthusiastic” about the idea.

Despite our best hopes, there will always be people who put their needs above others and seek to fulfill these needs without regards for the other person’s feelings. To teach young women otherwise by championing an idealistic notion is to render them defenseless against reality. No, not every man is out to trick women into putting out. But, don’t kid yourself; there are wolves out there, and nonverbal cues aren’t what strong, feminist women should use to defend their interests.

Instead of railing at reality and nurturing the ridiculous concept of an ideal world, we are much better off teaching our daughters how to stand up for themselves, when they inevitably cross paths with someone who seeks to use them.
