About the Book

The Eternal Way of God
A person needs to understand the principle of reincarnation in order to understand the ability of the author to identify and to witness the prophecy of the Book of Revelation being fulfilled.

In this book, the author provides a brief explanation of the “End Time” prophesied by John the Beloved, an apostle of Jesus Christ, in the Book of Revelation of the Bible. This is also a personal witness and revelation of the timeline of the opening of the Seven Seals prophesied in the Book of Revelation by the only one able to do so.

It also contains a brief explanation of the identity of the Four Horsemen, of the opening of the Seven Seals, of the soon coming Apocalypse known as the opening of the Seal of Revelation, and of future prophecies after the Apocalypse. The signs of the End Times that include a shift of the earth on its axis, sudden climatic changes, and a sudden need for a movement of people and nation are all unveiled in these pages.

The Awakening
As the author became aware of the past lifetimes of his family and friends, he has been able to verify the information about their self –realization through personal and private testimony, which he believes proves that his family fulfils the prophecy in the Book of Revelation. Thus, the author is the only person able to witness what he believes is the opening of the “seals”. When people have a clear picture of the past, it is easier to understand the present and to prepare for the future.

This book features the author’s son, Rick, who was an incarnation of John Kennedy who was shot in the head about 10 months before Rick came to the author’s family; his daughter, Ellen Marie, has fulfilled the prophecy in Revelations Chapter 12; Rodney Howard Browne who has testified on national TV on two different occasions about how the author helped him start his million-dollar ministry; and many more.

About the Book

Most people consider the Bible to be 66 books, each able to stand alone. This book describes the Bible as one book, where each of the 66 books relates to a central theme. That theme is that people cannot decide for themselves what is right and what is wrong – that’s God’s job – and that people cannot describe or define God. The gospels give people a way that they can live even with these limitations.
Adam was kicked out of Eden for deciding on his own that nakedness was wrong, and the consequences of doing what was “right in their own eyes” made man so bad that God decided to destroy him. Noah and his family were the only ones saved and they immediately started to do the same thing that God hated. People are like the examples that followed in the next chapters. The efforts of those who tried to decide what was good and evil led to the discussions of Job. Since people must have some guidelines, people themselves tried to develop them, but each could only see the problems involved from their own point of view. That’s why in the gospels, God – through Jesus – gave man the guidelines that everyone can follow: What people do for others is the goal. Some practical understandings of specific situations also follow.

ABOUT ME
I was born in Houston, Texas on November 22nd, 1993. I moved to Long Island, New York shortly after turning one. I attended school from 1998 and graduated in 2011. I started writing stories at around six years old.  I wrote until the age of ten, when I took a break for six years. I returned to writing stories at about sixteen years old. Ever since then, I enjoyed writing stories, particularly for children.

Lyme Light by Linda Wortell

Lyme Light

 

Following a normal day in the life of our fourteen-year-old daughter school, extracurricular activities, and homework came a quiet night’s sleep. However, Grace’s world was profoundly changed, as she awoke with a severe, debilitating headache and total memory loss.

We promptly sought medical attention, ruling out a stroke, drugs, seizures, encephalitis, meningitis, and tumors. Immediately, family and friends gathered to pray at Grace’s bedside. Every single test was negative. I recall saying, not sure how long this journey will be, short or long, but this will be a journey of faith.

Fervently, we prayed for guidance and patience. All of our strength and stamina were needed to face each minute of every day that followed, but Our Lord was indeed carrying us through. As we taught our daughter each step of the way, she was able to relearn any information. But where was everything she had learned in the past fourteen years?

God provided the loving Christian friends and family, who provided company for Grace, made meals, and prayed. God was guiding us and supporting us during this mysterious time. Our journey was not simple, for God did not intend it to be.

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Matthew 6:34

12 Tips for Social Media Marketing as a Self-Published Author

use social media
There is a lot of advice available about how to utilize social media to market yourself and your book as a self-published author — tips about using Facebook fan pages, promotional tweets, bulking up your followers, Pinterest boards to represent book content, engaging blog posts, etc. I mean, there are only so many tips you can give self-published authors about social media marketing, right?

Well, yes and no. I’m sure eventually I’d run out of ideas and tips, but there are a ton of possibilities with social media. The bottom line is, the more time you spend on social media to market your book, the better your results will be. While it is possible to Tweet or post on Facebook too much — to the extent that you start becoming ignored — spending as much time as possible to market your book via social media is never a bad idea.

But self-published authors are typically not marketers, unless of course you’re a marketing professional who wrote a book about marketing. Sure, we all know how to use Twitter and Google+ and Pinterest. But mostly, authors goof up their own promotion because they don’t know how to market effectively with social media. Marketing a self-published book is like marketing anything else. There are approaches that work, and those that don’t. If you don’t have the slightest clue about effective social media marketing strategies, hopefully the tips below will help a little.

    1. Don’t Use Social Media as Means to Directly Push Book Sales
      I can’t count the number of time I’ve seen people try to straightforwardly promote themselves on Facebook and Twitter, like “Hey, I self-published a book. Here’s the title and where you can buy it!” People aren’t on Facebook to shop, usually not even for books. They are there to socialize and have fun. You have to engage your audience and promote your book subtly, as well as secondarily. A fan page with a giant-size cover photo of your book cover and huge blinking yellow arrows pointing to its purchase page link is an instant fan-killer.
    2.  Create an Incentive

Think about it – do you “like” someone or something “just because?” You have to give people a reason to “like” you or follow you. Create a contest, an opinion poll, a themed video or photo submission. By drawing people to your fan page this way, you’ll create buzz around you and your book.

    1. Communicate with Your Audience

Respond to their comments, tweet and retweet, comment on relevant and related blogs — show your audience that you are paying attention to them.

    1. Write Guest Posts for Other Bloggers

This can be a great way to gain some exposure with an audience you might not otherwise get in front of. Always be sure to address the interests of the readers of that particular blog, which may be a little different from your own. It’s fine to include a hyperlink in there, but don’t be that guy who uses a guest post to advertise his book. Keep the interests of the audience in mind, and write something useful and informative for them.

    1. Don’t Use Your Personal Social Media Accounts for Professional Business

This goes for Twitter, your Facebook fan page, Pinterest and any other social media account you may have. There should be a distinction in your social media communications between you as an author selling a book and you personally.

    1. Buy Your Own Domain Name

While you can host your blog free with WordPress, it is worth it to buy a memorable domain name of your own choosing. You can also do this on Facebook, so that you can direct friends and fans to Facebook.com/YourBookTitle. Having a domain name that directly represents your book is much easier to promote within internet navigation.

    1. Try Crowdfunding

Many authors may not think about using something like this, but if you can give something in return for donations, like a digital copy of your book, not only can you raise money but you can establish invested readers. In general, it is best to include a video and offer an incentive or some kind of perk.

    1. Connect with Book Lovers on Goodreads

Goodreads is an extremely community-oriented social media platform for those who love to read and discuss books. Get involved in book discussions, set up links to your blog and Facebook fan page, and even share some writing. A word of advice: Though it’s social media for book enthusiasts and it may be tempting, don’t go galloping in and start feverishly throwing your book in everyone’s face. Again, social media is about connecting with people of common interests. Review books in the same genre as yours, establish relationships, and make connections with those who might be interested in reading and reviewing your book.

    1. Update Your Blog at Least Two or Three Times a Week

Your blog doesn’t have to be directly correlated to your book topic. The idea is to sell yourself. The best way to do this is with quality blog posts. Whatever niche or subject matter you choose, stick to it and make it useful.

    1. Link to Other Relevant Authors and Blogs

You very well may get reciprocal links to your blog from those you link to. Even if you don’t, you’re offering other useful sources of information to your audience, in addition to building your network.

    1. Create a Hashtag You Can Share

Hashtags can be used to find out what may be said about your book, and they can be powerful little social media tools for establishing recognition of your book title or author name. For example, #YourMainCharacter’sName — you can share this on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ and try to get conversations going surrounding your book content. Use your hashtag whenever you mention related tweets or Facebook posts. It’s kind of like building a brand for your book. A tip within a tip, though: Research the hashtag you create first, to make sure it doesn’t already exist for something else, or your little hashtag strategy can backfire. There’s no social media law that reserves the perfect hashtag just for you.

    1. Use Google Authorship

This is one way you can directly, unabashedly promote yourself because you can link your Google+ profile to your blog content, guest posts, and any other web content you’ve authored. In doing so, when that content shows up in search results, your authorship information is right there to help spread your author name. Make sure that your author name is the same as the byline in the content you’ve written (important for those who use pen names).

There are dozens more tips I could give you, but most of you don’t want to read more than roughly 1,000 words anyway, so they can be saved for another time. That said, if you devote yourself to marketing with social media, and you use the right approaches and methods, you will make progress. Like so many things, it just takes a little time.

Let’s Get Visible: How To Get Noticed And Sell More Books

One possible best seller had to follow the previous best seller in author David Gaughran’s case. Let’s Get Visible: How to Get Noticed and Sell More Books had to follow Let’s Get Digital. David Gaughran is the author that advises you very effectively on how to sell your books you self-publish.

If you have a book on sale in Amazon Kindle, you are one among 1.5 million and thousands more are joining you every day.  Is it at all possible to get your book noticed in this seemingly insurmountable list of books? It is not as simple as it used to be.  You need to arm yourself with new tools and new strategies and an outsourcing staff.

You can learn how you can leverage the recommendation engine by getting it to give you good exposure. You can discover other places where else you can go to sell your books. You are a writer, aren’t you? So what are you doing promoting your book? The book tells you how to spend more time writing rather than promoting. It tells you how to be cost-effective. Gaughran is sure that you will get your book noticed if you follow his dictates on the subjects as described above.

Many indie writers have found good sense in the advice in the book. Some go as far as to claim that if you did not have the book in our library, you might try all you could but would remain in the periphery of the book sale.

Gaughran does explain the complex subject in a language anybody would understand and seeks to do away with guesswork.  Hundreds of authors, who are baffled at how things work behind the curtain at Amazon, might find enlightenment in Let’s Get Visible: How to Get Noticed.

Let’s Get Visible: How to Get Noticed is surely not the first book that purportedly tells the self-publishing indie authors how to write and how to market their books. However, almost all of these books have been espousing methods that were time-consuming, ineffective and in fact, bad sales material in themselves.

Given that the self-publishers’ most pressing need is for them to get help to market their books, Gaughran says that it was this question that was asked of him more than anything else.  When you consider the chain of events, an author sets about writing his book first, and that requires no expenditure; he then self-publishes it which again requires no expenditure at all. Then comes the crucial phase which is all about money and expenditure. And, the time factor is introduced here too. Each sale-less day is an unproductive day. That is perhaps why Gaughran chose to write this clever book. Writers could keep Let’s Get Visible: How to Get Noticed as a reference book at their side.

Excellent writers who got their book published and who were waiting patiently to see the sale of their books soaring had seen their book turn a dud only because they were not aware of the changing scenario in self-publishing and marketing. The gap in the knowledge has been filled to their satisfaction by Let’s Get Visible: How to Get Noticed.

Veterans Day by Michael Edward Little and Stephen D. Little

Veterans Day

Jim Thurmond is an embittered Viet Nom vet with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and a drinking problem the size of Texas. When Jim suffers a full-blown breakdown, he emerges with the realization that America’s political, financial and legal systems have become hopelessly corrupt. Jim hasn’t worn his country’s uniform for decades but, like all vets, he never renounced his oath to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

Jim and a small group of fellow veterans of the super-secret Army Security Agency decide to take matters into their own hands. Like the Founding Fathers, they form a Committee of Safety, vigilantes dedicated to making sure that America’s domestic enemies change their ways or pay the ultimate price. Branded domestic terrorists, they rush to complete their mission before the full might of the FBI can stop them.

His mission to restore America’s values forces him to confront his own demons. Can he possibly lead his group of ragtag retirees without his usual tumbler of bourbon? Can he possibly let go of the bitterness which has become his second nature? Can he outwit the hundreds of FBI agents sent to capture or kill him?

About the Authors

Michael EdwardI joined the U.S. Army in 1966. Because of my high GT score on my entrance exams I was assigned to the Army Security Agency, aka ASA. I’d never heard of the ASA. After a thorough background check by the FBI, I was chosen to become a radio and communications specialist. The Viet Nam War was raging at the time. I thought being a radio operator and communications specialist would be very safe. Boy was I wrong!

My first year in Viet Nam with the Big Red One I learned the Viet Cong quickly realized if they killed the radio operators, we could not call in air strikes and rain pee on their ass. So radio operators were often their first target in ambushes. Carrying that heavy PRC-25, aka Prick 25 radio around with its long whip antenna sticking high in the air waving around was like shouting, “Hey, I’m over here!”

I was listening to my radio one day in 1967 during Operation Junction City when I heard an infantry platoon get ambushed by the VC. Within minutes the platoon leader called Headquarters and asked to have a new radio operator sent to him because his original radio operator had just been killed. Within an hour or so, four replacement radio operators were killed in quick succession.

I was almost killed by sniper fire, rockets, and mortar fire several times. I was slightly wounded by friendly fire once, but I survived my two years in Viet Nam getting shot at nearly every day. But I was no war hero, I was just doing the job I was trained to do. I was simply another spirit carrier.

When I returned home, I was met at the San Francisco airport by a mob of anti-war protesters who spit on me, called me a war criminal, and a baby killer. I felt like choking the bastards I’d just risked my life for. I didn’t do one thing overseas that I’m ashamed of. Viet Nam was my generation’s war. I did not start it; President John F. Kennedy got us into that mess. My country needed help, so I volunteered.

A couple days after I enlisted I received my draft notice.

I don’t regret my service, but today America is nothing like it used to be. Our system has become hopelessly corrupt governed by a bunch of politically correct wussies who wouldn’t say shit if they had a mouthful.

After I was discharged I went to college where I studied design. After college I worked as a draftsman and mechanical designer for the electronics, medical, and automotive industries. My designs helped a lot of people, and improved our product quality. I truly loved my work.
