Voyage of the Soul

Voyage of the Soul

by Brett A. Reif

It wasn’t that long ago that the world we live in was run differently. Some of the past still surrounds us, but is much less prevalent. The world of which I speak was controlled by money and power. Those who had it suppressed the weak and poor. The suppressed had no choice but to abide by the suppression. This show of power existed in every aspect of life, from love to war. During this time, bias and prejudice were ways of life. The wealthy did as they pleased. They married to keep status. This still happens today, but not to the same extent. Many were forced to learn to love, rather than be free to find it as were the poor. The poor could find their mate, rather than be forced into an arranged marriage. Love and life were very much dependent on the class into which you were born.
This book is the story of a man, who wished to be his own man. He knew his place in this world wasn’t what was given or laid out before him. Jacque wished to make his own way. During his exploits, he found himself onforeign and biased soil. This is where his life would change; it would begin. He fell in love with a woman he was forbidden to marry. Their love for each other carried them to places neither of them thought possible, both good and bad. This is a story not just about love, but life. Unfortunately, it is honest and true, for life is filled with as much happiness as it is pain. Here is Jacque, a Frenchman, who loved Elizabeth, an Englishwoman, and their story.

The Tail of Max The Mindless Dog

Cute, adorable Max is sure to become your child's favorite story character. And by the time you are even half way through reading, your little one will be able to say with you Max's words of affirmation! 

In this beautifully written and spectacularly illustrated story of The Tail of Max the Mindless Dog, Max has a habit that is preventing him from enjoying his life fully. Seeing his friend missing so much happiness, Ross sets out to teach Max newer, more productive habits. Through the technique of belly breaths, with words of affirmation, Max learns to apply the practice of Mindful living to his previous mindless way of existing.  

We all have habits; some are beneficial, others are not. We learn some conscientiously, others we develop slowly over time. Usually, habits are minor, and are not harmful to those we love or us. Even minor habits, when left unattended may develop to become obstacles. Mindfulness is a state of active, open attention on the present. When you are mindful, you observe your thoughts and feelings from a distance, without judging them good or bad. Instead of letting your life pass you by, mindfulness means living in the moment and awakening to experience.  

Through this beautiful story, the child in your life will learn to experience living in a state of active, open attention on their present – each and every day.

The Holy Grail of Book Launching (paperback)

also known as

The Holy Grail of Book Publishing (for Kindle)

by Mimi Emmanuel

100+ Five star reviews, nice LARGE size book (9.5 x 11 inches) and LARGE easy to read font, 362 pages.

5.0 out of 5 starsIf you buy just one book on self publishing (and Amazon Bestselling) I recommend you this one.
ByVassia Sarrion May 1, 2017
Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase

I am a book coach, and I have read all that there is on Amazon when it comes to book publishing. This is the only book that gives ALL this detailed information, step by step process, as well as a huge amount of resources that you could never find alone even if you tried for ages - and to be honest - not many other authors accept to share (or they don't know about). In addition to this, the author is very modest, she admits that if she had not all this help from her daughter and her launching team, she would not succeed an Amazon bestseller status. If you bought just one book on book publishing and promoting, I would strongly recommend this one.

Career criminal Micky Dewitt arrives in Sydney, broke, and on the lookout for opportunity.  Carol Todd has a lust for money and danger and needs a fall guy for her next scheme.  When she meets Micky, he seems like the perfect candidate. 

A Tom Collins To go

Times change, but when it comes to certain genres of literature, sometimes the old ways are the best ways. There are still legions of loyal readers who long for the days of Dashiell Hammet and Mickey Spillane. Robert B. Parker, the famous modern day detective novelist knew this and successfully incorporated some of the deadpan style and film noir humor and drama of these authors into the modern day adventures of his private eye, Spencer.

Jim Hart has created a powerful rendering of the golden era of the private eye story in his new novel, A Tom Collins to Go. The work chronicles the adventures of private eye Harry Parker who works in the Big Apple back in the days when it was still Gotham City. Harry drinks too much, laments his failed marriage, longs for his ex and scratches out a living as a hardscrabble PI. Which all lends to his ‘don’t give a damn’ demeanor and what makes him so lovable.

I believe that the skillful combination of all of these elements will give readers of this genre exactly what they are looking for.
