20% Off Dyson Coupon on eBay

This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.
With a really fury pet 120 pound Newfoundland that sheds a lot, we've gone through vacuums like crazy, that is, unless we got a Dyson Pet vacuum. While we have had to have repairs done along the way, the vacuum is still going strong. When you spend $500 on a vacuum, you don't want it to die after a year, like what was happening with less expensive alternatives.

eBay is running a special where you can save 20% off on a Dyson. These are purchases made directly from Dyson through the eBay web site. The coupon is valid through 11:59 pm PT on 2/17. If you don't mind getting a refurbished model, you can save even more. That Dyson Ball Animal 2 Upright is $250 before the coupon, or $200 after, or just get the new model on sale for $300 before the coupon or $240 after coupon. Sounds like a great deal either way, though for the extra $40, I'd be inclined to just get the new one. Free shipping even.

I’m In Here Somewhere: Memoir of a Food Addict Book Blast and Excerpt

Have you watched Chad Dean on TLC’s “My 600 LB Life? He's come out with an interesting memoir about his journey. Read on for a peak inside, and check out the book's trailer, too.
Genre: Memoir – Biography


Flipping through channels, growling at commercials, and then BAM! Something HUGE fills your screen. “Good grief!” you shout, eyes bugging.

Sorry. That might’ve been ME, Chad Dean, awkwardly invading your living room. If you fled, I fully understand. Whether you stuck around to watch in morbid curiosity or just plain horror, I thank you for taking that time out of your day to observe the quick one-year glimpse into a personal battle that was hard, embarrassing, scary, and downright frightening at times.

Though I transformed quickly on the TV, it was not enough to show how in the heck I got to that point in the first place. I’m not alone in these struggles. I’m not the only fat person that ever existed. And I’m certainly not the only human disgusted at the unsightly substance trapped beneath their skin.

Join me as I delve a little deeper below those layers. Perhaps a light might come on sooner than mine.

His team believes he’s calm and Zen. His boss finds him obsessive. Suspects think him gorgeous but dangerous. They’re all right.

Chief Inspector Gray James is sculpting the remembered likeness of his small son when he receives the call – a faceless corpse is found hanging by the choppy river, swirls of snow and sand rolling like tumbleweeds.

Montreal glitters: the cobbled streets slippery with ice, and the mighty St. Lawrence jetting eastward past the city. One by one, someone is killing the founders of a booming medical tech startup – propelling Gray into a downward spiral that shatters his hard-earned peace, that risks his very life, that threatens to force him to care and face what he has shunned all along: his hand in the storm.

From the prize-winning author comes a psychological, page-turning mystery with all the elements one needs on a rainy night: a complex murder, a noble yet haunted detective, and an evocative setting to sink into.

Ain't No Messiah
Tales of the Blessed and Broken Book 1
by Mark Tullius
Genre: Psychological Suspense

God has chosen Joshua to bring forth his new kingdom on Earth.”

From the day he was born, Joshua has found himself the recipient of death-defying miracles. His earliest memories include his own father proclaiming him the second coming of Christ. However, Joshua has wrestled with serious doubts about the validity of this claim all his life. How could he not, having survived a childhood filled with physical and emotional abuse at the hands of his earthly father.

Now, one way or another, Joshua is going to show the world who he really is.

"A compelling, if sometimes-lurid, picture of a faith gone wrong." - Kirkus Reviews

"Ain’t No Messiah is a beautifully-written book about one man's effort to find himself - and maybe even a bit of happiness - in a world bitter enough to greet even a supposed Messiah with abuse and scapegoating." ~Catherine Langrehr for IndieReader

Shadows of Atlantis: Awakening
by Mara Powers
Genre: Fantasy

"...had me turning the pages obsessively from the very beginning." Readers Favorite.

Enter the legacy of the legend...
Brigitte has been chosen to renew the treaty between Atlantis and the ancient bloodline of Lemuria. As an emissary of nature, her betrothal would ensure the continued function of the Crystal Grid, the life source of the ten kingdoms of Atlantis. But as Brigitte prepares to leave from her home in the magical Dreamvale, her people are attacked by a storm of shadows. Now she is running for her life.

Upon her arrival in the ruling city of Atlantis, she meets D’Vinid, a dejected musician who lives the quintessential Atlantean lifestyle of revelry, escapism and apathy. Under the eclipse of a sacred festival, they are swept into an attraction they cannot resist. Their union may protect humanity from its worst enemy - the shadows of Atlantis. But there is one problem, this man is not her betrothed.

Brigitte soon discovers that the corruption of the Grid could very well be the Grid itself. Citizens have neglected to attend the rituals required to charge the crystals with their psychic emanations. Some have fallen prey to an epidemic called “the madness”, caused by shadowy parasites that feed off human suffering. But as nature always strives toward balance, the crystals have activated a genetic upgrade among the people. The youth have begun to express supernatural powers. Could it be that D’Vinid and Brigitte are meant to be leaders among the awakened? And if so, why does it seem impossible for them to be together?

A mysterious tale of romance, seduction and betrayal that reaches just enough into the modern mind to ask - will we learn the lessons of Atlantis?
