#BookPromo – The Spiritual Awakening Process: Coming Out of the Darkness and Into the Light by Christine Hoeflich

Book Cover - The Spiritual  Awakening Process 2-1.jpg

About the Book

SUMMARY:  Humanity has reached a defining point in our spiritual history, yet many are unaware that our world is changing from the Age of Darkness to the Age of Light at this very moment. The Spiritual Awakening Process: Coming Out of the Darkness and Into the Light supports our individual journeys towards consciousness and expands our shamanic powers and deep, intuitive wisdom. This nonfiction book will help readers understand, and fully engage in, the worldwide awakening currently taking place: an awakening that offers hope, healing, and ultimately, unity. Vibrant, evocative, and carefully detailed, The Spiritual Awakening Process speaks to the shaman in us all—and it’s also how we return America to its divine destiny.

THE BACK STORY:  This book was written at the suggestion of a friend who is an intuitive, who picked me up in her car one weekend and took me to her home in the Santa Cruz mountains. On the drive over to her mountain home I resisted the idea of writing a second book. (No way was I going to do that!) But then the next morning I woke up in her guest room with a plan for the new book, along with the idea that I could complete it in about three months. The book took a little over three months to research and write. Once I started it, helpful synchronicities happened daily that allowed me to complete it in record time. The book was updated in December 2016 and produced into a Kindle book and paperback in January 2017.

WHY THIS TITLE?:  The main title is self-evident. There’s also astronomy in the book that proves the point of the subtitle.

WHY WOULD SOMEONE WANT TO READ IT?: This book explains in easy-to-understand, simple language the what, how and why of spiritual awakening. Anyone who is a truth seeker will want to read this book.

#BookPromo – Forbidden Chronicles of a Roman Centurion by John Chaplick

Cover Chronicles.jpg

About the Book

An archaeological dig under the streets of London unearths a Roman Centurion’s 2000-year-old letter which throws doubt on and threatens the foundations of Christian doctrine and modern society. Is it possible the New Testament is a forgery promulgated by the Roman Catholic Church? In a desperate effort to assess the validity of the letter’s contents, a team of scholars including Dr. Peter Clemens, a devout Christian, and Sam Wykoff, an avowed atheist, track the First Century itinerary of Roman Legion XX through England and the Near East travels of Apostle Paul upon whose writings the centurion’s letter was based. In the process, the team encounters danger and subterfuge at every turn. An antichrist group anxious to discredit the Bible, and religious zealots eager to protect the status quo by attempting to stop or kill them are just a few of the obstacles they must overcome.

Excerpts from A Critical Review of Forbidden Chronicles of a Roman Centurion by Jim Booth

A bit like a mystery, a bit like a thriller, John Chaplick’s Forbidden Chronicles of a Roman Centurion explores some profound ideas while it seeks to accomplish an elusive and difficult task. A Roman centurion who knew the apostle Paul sends his son a letter which is discovered twenty centuries later in an archaeological dig under the streets of London. The discovery challenges the validity of the New Testament and sends a team of scholars across England and Asia Minor in search of the truth.

In its Da Vinci Code like narrative Chaplick’s novel challenges the reader with at times almost dauntingly philosophical and theological discussions among its main characters, including a theologian and an avowed atheist. There is action, danger, mystery, and even a little romance as the team encounters both hard core zealots who fear opposition to the Bible, and evil cultists who eager to discredit it.

The reader will find him/herself both entertained and enlightened by John Chaplick’s novel. One can ask for no more.

#BookPromo – Success Is Natural with Practical Benefits of Spirituality by Rohit Chauhan

34330476.jpg

About the Book

Bolster Your Mindset For Success.

Humanity on planet earth is at the threshold of either launching itself into a higher orbit, or spiraling down into destruction. The usual advances in Technology, Medicine, Sociology, Psychology, Theology, and Politics are not sufficiently effective in ensuring the healthy survival of humanity. Technology is advancing at a faster pace than ever before, and that’s good. Yet toxicity in life is rising at all levels; physical, mental, social, and that’s extremely dangerous.

Our social systems need to evolve fast. People must learn to insist on excellence, for human and environmental synergy. This is possible with spiritual assistance, for expansion of our mind-power. As described in Chapter IV, regular practice of practical spirituality is indeed essential.

This book is about nurturing a sustainable ‘success mindset’ that naturally results in even more success. Experience it, to ensure healthy survival and launch humanity to higher levels.

#BookPromo – Hippie Mafia (Granola Gang Book 1) by Jessica Evans

51t9r403ppL.jpg

About the Book

Hippie Mafia is a multi-voice narrative that examines gender roles within the constructs of urban identity. The antagonist of the work, Mason, is the antithesis of the female archetype, both in her decision making skills and in the progression of her character through her stand-alone agency. The female protagonist, Amy, is one who responds to the situations she finds herself in as one might expect of a standard female character. It is the hope of the work that these two conflicting female identities will help the reader to begin to understand and examine ways in which female characters do not need a male counterpoint to advance their own stores.

About Charlene the Star

Charlene the Star was born into a family of famous racehorses. Unlike her big brother, Charlie, Charlene decides she doesn’t like racing. How will she explain this to her mom? How does she show her trainers she doesn’t like racing? Will she become a model instead? Will Charlene discover her natural gift? Her career path takes many twists and turns before she finds her place to shine. You’ll love reading about Charlene’s adventures. She may surprise you with her unusual talent.

Charlene the Star is first in the series of Charlene the Star books. The others are Charlene the Star and Hattie’s Heroes and Charlene the Star and Bentley Bulldog. In addition, she wrote an award-winning children’s autobiography, Tails of Sweetbrier and a fictional story, Charlie the Horse. Her books have won a number of awards and recognitions.

Deanie loves spending time with her family and their dog, Elliott. She also enjoys watching equestrian events, figure skating competitions and baseball.

Holly earned a Fine Arts degree from Southern Methodist University. She dedicates her talents to children’s book illustrations, equestrian and pet portraits.


Quotes from Charlene the Star: (these are thoughts from Charlene the Star)

I should change the subject. Ann and Blossom are talking about racing. I’m not even sure I’ll like it. Everyone has different gifts, but I don’t know what mine is. That’s kind of scary.

I wonder how you are trained to jump. Does that mean you can win prizes for jumping up and down? I liked jumping up and down during my tantrum. I’ve heard people say practice makes perfect. My outbursts could be almost perfect already. Maybe that could be my specialty.

Excerpts from reviews of Charlene the Star:

Charlene the Star is another delightful story by Deanie Humphrys-Dunne…

By Virginia Wright on February 9, 2017

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase

“Charlene the Star was born into a family of famous racehorses. She had beautiful dark red hair, brown eyes, and nice long legs just perfect for being a racehorse. However, Charlene decides racing is not for her. Charlene does not know how to tell her mother this. Quite a dilemma for a youngster. You will have to read Charlene the Star to find out what happens next in this delightful story by Deanie Humphrys-Dunne. I recommend this book for young readers 7-12, and especially for those who are horse lovers.”

 

“This beautiful book has much to offer to young readers but it will also assist parents in raising happy, confident and successful children. Readers will find amazing illustrations, exquisite writing and plenty of life lessons in this delightful and educational book. It is a labor of love! Most highly recommended!!” From review by Yosef Lapid

 

“This is a story about a plucky horse that found her own friends—and her own path—to happiness and success. It’s a story about perseverance, friendship, and most of all, a belief in oneself and in finding the things that make you happy…and then pursuing them with every ounce of energy you can muster.

Finally, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the beautiful illustrations by Holly Humphrys-Bajaj.”  From review by Theodore J. Cohen

#BookPromo – Splinterlands by John Feffer

open-uri20160929-140-1lb77zc-f_medium-8fef57b508d88da0cc0cc9fd637b090c

About the Book

Julian West, looking backwards from 2050, tries to understand why the world and his family have fallen apart.

Part Field Notes from a Catastrophe, part 1984, part World War Z, John Feffer’s striking new dystopian novel, takes us deep into the battered, shattered world of 2050. The European Union has broken apart. Multiethnic great powers like Russia and China have shriveled. America’s global military footprint has virtually disappeared and the United States remains united in name only. Nationalism has proven the century’s most enduring force as ever-rising global temperatures have supercharged each-against-all competition and conflict among the now 300-plus members of an increasingly feeble United Nations.

As he navigates the world of 2050, Julian West offers a roadmap for the path we’re already on, a chronicle of impending disaster, and a faint light of hope. He may be humanity’s last best chance to explain how the world unraveled—if he can survive the savage beauty of the Splinterlands.

Reviews

“In a chilling, thoughtful, and intuitive warning, foreign policy analyst Feffer (Crusade 2.0) takes today’s woes of a politically fragmented, warming Earth and amplifies them into future catastrophe. Looking back from his hospital bed in 2050, octogenarian geo-paleontologist Julian West contemplates his fractured world and estranged family. West is writing the follow-up to his bestselling 2020 monograph, Splinterlands, in which he analyzes the disintegrated international community. By 2050, the refugee-saturated European Union has collapsed; the countries of Brazil, Russia, India, and China have splintered; and Washington, D.C., is gone, destroyed by Hurricane Donald in 2022. There are water wars, imitation foods made from seaweed, inequality, disease, and sleeper terrorists. On a virtual reality trip to make amends, West visits his children—professor Aurora in a deteriorating Brussels rampant with kidnappings; wealthy opportunist Gordon in Xinjiang, no longer part of China; and freedom fighter Benjamin in prosperous Botswana. His ex-wife, Rachel, lives in a commune in a snowless Vermont, now a farming paradise. Lending credibility to his predictions, Feffer includes footnotes from West’s editor written around 2058. This novel is not for the emotionally squeamish or optimistic; Feffer’s confident recitation of world collapse is terrifyingly plausible, a short but encompassing look at world tragedy. ”
Publisher Weekly, Starred Review

“Feffer’s book is a wild ride through a bleak future, casting a harsh, thought-provoking light on that future’s modern-day roots.”
—Foreword Reviews

“John Feffer is our 21st-century Jack London, and, like the latter’s Iron Heel, Splinterlands is a vivid, suspenseful warning about the ultimate incompatibility between capitalism and human survival.”
—Mike Davis

Splinterlands paints a startling portrait of a post-apocalyptic tomorrow that is fast becoming a reality today. Fast-paced, yet strangely haunting, Feffer’s latest novel looks back from 2050 on the disintegration of world order told through the story of one broken family– and offers a disturbing vision of what might await us all if we don’t act quickly.”
—Barbara Ehrenreich, author of Nickle and Dimed and Living with a Wild God, and founder of the Economic Hardship Reporting Project

“A chilling portrayal of where the politics of division could take us. Now I only hope he writes the sequel to tell us how to avoid it!”
—Naomi Oreskes, co-author of The Collapse of Western Civilization

Waiting in the Wings: A new book by Stevie Turner

Available NOW on Amazon HERE

At the grand old age of 92, my mother Dot suddenly starts telling me that she loves me. I am quite dumbstruck at these outbursts of emotion, as she has never mentioned the fact before in all of my 58 years. Over the entire course of my lifetime we have often argued bitterly, and have never really seen eye-to-eye over anything. I squirm with the inner knowledge that she wants me to reply in a similar vein, but try as I might, I cannot.

The guilt I feel at being unable to grant Dot her wish is overwhelming. As Dot’s health deteriorates more towards the final chapters of her life, I take on the role of carer. I find the only way to bring her out of her perpetual misery is to reminisce on past…
