Title: TAI Divination Workbook
Author: Erik Thorel
Publisher: AuthorHouse
Genre: Body, Mind, Spirit
Format: Ebook

Author Erik Thorell reveals his new publication, TAI Divination Workbook.

TAI Divination is the fusion of three ancient divination systems: Tarot, Astrology and the I Ching or TAI. These 3 systems have come together in one reading, probably for the first time ever in the history of divination. You don’t have to be psychic to use TAI, and TAI is easy to understand for beginners, and in-depth enough for experts.

TAI is not intended to compete with or replace existing forms of divination or Holy Scriptures of various religions. They all originally come from the Divine that lives within a man to help, advise and guide him in his life. The author respects all the founders equally as God’s messengers.

This brings to mind of a bowl full of small cards with quotes from the Bible, a device which his Salvation Army parents used to ask questions via the ancient art of bibliomancy.

TAI was accidentally discovered February 11th 1981 and co-incidentally published in 2015, the third year of the Aquarian age. Pray that the Divine within speaking via “TAI” advises all equally kindly and wisely.

Title: The Dilution of America
Author: Louis C. Gilde with Lawrence C. Gambone
Publisher: AuthorHouse
Genre: Biography
Format: Ebook

The Dilution of America

America, American society and American industry have all become diluted. What this means is that the country’s political-social-economic situation no longer reflects the design and purpose our founding fathers intended. Many factors play into this problem; and Lou Gilde and Larry Gambone have successfully teamed up in an attempt to cite most of them:

The failure of the “Greatest Generation” to prevent the insidious creep  of socialism;

The paradigm change from business/government cooperation to  anti-business sentiment;

The failure of our inner-city programs, to include industry incentives  and schools;

The curtailing of religious expression and moral behavior;

The eroding of true representative governance by a bloated, unwieldy,  and unaccountable bureaucracy;

The demise of a true free enterprise system resulting from over  regulation; and

The movement from capitalism to socialism by ever-increasing  entitlement (socialistic) programs.

We have reached an important turning point with the economy, the environment, and with the many socio-political issues facing our great nation. Unless the average voter realizes that government is handcuffing our economy, we will suffer economic malaise and worse. Our present approach to governance must be reversed if we are to remain an economic powerhouse in the 21st century.

To do this, we need an educated electorate who will vote wisely in the coming elections in order to resolve the many Governmental problems that have occurred in the past. Until the American voters recognize the fact that Government is its own worst enemy — and is unintentionally becoming an enemy of the people, the environment, and the economy — we will continue down the path to ruin. Walt Kelly, in the comic strip, Pogo, said it best: “We have met the enemy and he is us.”

About the Author

Mr. Gilde’s life experiences provide an interesting perspective challenging the concept of America’s “Greatest Generation.” He volunteered for World War II service in November of 1942 and spent twenty months overseas in the European Theater.His entire professional career was spent as an industrial environmentalist with unique involvement in cooperative efforts with federal researchers prior to the creation of USEPA. This activity based on innovative waste water treatment resulted in over twenty presentations in the U.S. and overseas.

Because of the early research work, he collaborated with USEPA as an advisor in the preparation of its field manual on “Overland Flow Treatment of Waste Waters” and was awarded in 1979 by Region II EPA Certificate of Appreciation. During the 1970’s he testified before Congress concerning rule makings in the environmental area that created unnecessary costs for business resulting in increased costs for citizens. Mr. Gilde also obtained two patents in the environmental field.

During retirement Mr. Gilde did volunteer work for the World Environment Center, a non-profit spinoff from the United Nations assisting U.S. Aide from the State Department on environmental projects incorporate in U.S. Aide programs. He consulted in over a half dozen projects for different countries and was sent to Egypt and Romania to conduct studies.

Mr. Gilde witnessed environmental matters from an unusual perspective in relation to business, government and the economy including the location of numerous new plant sites vs. older plants in distressed areas. He sets forth recommendations for a less confrontational future to foster a more dynamic economy where most of the federal bureaucracy is eliminated and the states are free to soar even higher than Texas and other pro-economy states. A section of the book is devoted to the revitalization of the City of Camden, NJ as a national demonstration for urban America.

Title: The Treasure of the Word
Author: Isidore Okwudili Igwegb
Publisher: iUniverse
Genre: Religion
Format: Ebook

Readers of the Bible know events on the Catholic Church’s liturgy have scriptural passages referring to them. Many, however, are only familiar with a few. One might be surprised at how many more are there for the reading. The Treasure of the Word: Commentary on Biblical Readings for Sundays, Feast Days, and Solemnities, Cycle B is a life-related meditation on the sacred texts within events of the Catholic Church’s liturgical calendar. Author Isidore Okwudili Igwegbe’s work is intended for everyone, from the layperson to church leader to those in the clergy. Beginning with Advent, each insight is based on his experiences teaching, leading, and breaking the Word of God with mixed Christian congregations in different countries and continents. Each chapter begins with the date and event, followed by a list of scriptural references. Igwegbe’s text satisfies human yearning for the meaning of the Word. It is an exposition of the good news within the good news, a prayerful sharing of the great secret-human fate is God’s fate, and God is an imprudent investor who blesses his capital and his love on every person, everywhere, and every time. This book encourages Christians and all believers to realise they are the centre of God’s attention.

Meet the Author:

Title: Leadership DNA
Author: Paul Okum
Publisher: iUniverse
Genre: Political Science
Format: Ebook

Not many people are satisfied with the leaders we have in the public and private sectors. We are suffering from a severe lack of good leadership—even though billions of dollars per year are spent on leadership training and development.

The root cause of this leadership vacuum is that leadership gurus firmly believe, teach, and preach that anyone can be “made” into a leader with the right training, personal desire, and commitment. With this premise, they’ve approached leadership as a commonplace and elementary skill that anyone can learn. There’s just one problem: they’re wrong.

In this guidebook on leadership, you’ll learn about all aspects of leadership, including:

how to look past personality profiles, leadership models, and traditional assessment tools to grasp what makes a great leader;

how to identify and select natural born leaders to achieve your objectives;

how to deal with poor leaders who hurt you and your organization.

Leadership DNA examines the false premise that anyone can be a leader and provides insights and tools that lead to a better system of identifying, selecting, and developing born leaders.

Meet the Author:

Paul Okum earned a bachelor’s degree from Temple University in business administration. He worked forty years, spending time in the military as a US Army officer and in leadership positions with the federal government in the Departments of Transportation, Interior, and the Army, as well as serving as a human-resources director in the Defense Department. He is retired and lives in Florida.

Megan Abbott meets M.O. Walsh in Christine Lennon’s compelling debut novel about a group of friends on the cusp of graduating from college when their lives are irrevocably changed by a brutal act of violence.Present Day…

For two decades, Elizabeth has tried to escape the ghosts of her past…tried to erase the painful memories…tried to keep out the terrifying nightmares. But twenty years after graduating from the University of Florida, her carefully curated life begins to unravel, forcing her to confront the past she’s tried so hard to forget.

Elizabeth and her two closest friends, Caroline and Ginny, are having the time of their lives in college—binge watching Oprah, flirting for freebies from Taco Bell, and breaking hearts along the way. But without warning, their world is suddenly shattered when a series of horrific acts of violence ravage the campus, changing their lives forever.

Title: Live Echoes
Author: Henry V. O’Neil
Publisher: Harper Voyager Impulse
Genre: Science Fiction
Format: Ecopy
There’s new hope for resolution of the decades-long war against the Sims: the discovery of Omega, a mysterious planet far from the fighting. Reena Mortas, the embattled leader of the human alliance, is betting everything that Omega could unlock the mystery of what’s creating the Sims.

Meanwhile, her husband and predecessor, the missing-and-believed-dead Olech Mortas, has made contact with the aliens who gave mankind the faster-than-light mode of travel known as the Step. Existing in a different realm, Olech is re-living the most important decisions of his life—while trying to explain human contradiction to a being that looks just like him, known only as Mirror.

Olech’s children, Jander and Ayliss, are still embroiled in the war. Jander has rejoined the Orphan Brigade on the mineral-rich planet Celestia, where he comes to believe what many of the Orphans feel: they’re supporting the wrong side. Ayliss, fighting in the all-female Banshees, is soon thrown into the losing war against the Sims, not knowing that every Banshee in the Human Defense Force is slated for an all-out assault on Omega that could win the war—or get them all killed.

Live Echoes is the gripping end to the Sim War series, and finally answers its central question: Where did the Sims come from, and why are they bent on humanity’s destruction?

Welcome author Emerald Barnes with her new release The Marked!

The Marked blog tour badge (1)

Thanks for hosting me. Today, I want to introduce you to Myka Williams from The Marked.

My name is Myka Williams. I’m seventeen, and I go to Knight’s Academy in Crescent Hill, Tennessee. I live in the dorms here with my best friend, Olivia Michaels.

Some days, I don’t recognize the girl staring back at me. Some days, I can barely function because I can’t sleep. There’s this wolf in my dreams, and I get the sense that she’s real somehow. Like I can sense her thoughts. Like I’m the wolf. Which isn’t possible, but it feels so real. And it keeps me up at night.

There’s also this guy. His name is Milo, and he’s so frustrating! He’s cute—like really cute—but he’s so…broody. I guess that’s the right word.

One day, he’s giving me gifts, almost kissing me, and the next, he ignores me, basically pushes me away. Something happened between us during Parents’ Weekend, but he won’t tell me what it is. See, I fainted and hit my head, but that doesn’t explain the weird snake-like mark on my neck. No one knows what happened but him, and he won’t talk to me.

Then there’s Preston. If Milo is frustrating, Preston is so much worse. He’s possessive—and he has a really bad anger problem, like he should take anger management classes it’s so bad. He won’t leave me alone. No matter how much I tell him to. Something is wrong with him, and I hate being around him.

I miss my family, and that can’t surprise anyone more than it does me. I thought being at Knight’s Academy would give me purpose. I thought I could figure out who I was, but I was wrong. I’m still adopted, and I still don’t know who my real parents are. My adoptive family, Barry and Jilly, are great, don’t get me wrong. I love them, and I can’t imagine life without them. But, there’s something missing, and I can’t put my finger on it.

I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I just want to run, much like the wolf I’m dreaming about. As if life wasn’t complicated enough…

The one good thing that has come from being at Knight’s Academy is meeting Olivia. Liv is in every way my opposite, but she keeps me distracted from what’s running through my head on a daily basis. She’s great, really. I’ve never had a best friend before. I tend to push everyone away. That’s why I was okay with moving from Mississippi to Tennessee. I didn’t have anyone at home to hold me back. At least that’s what I thought until I came here. I miss Barry and Jilly. I want to go back home, but I need to finish my year out at Knight’s Academy.

At least I have my art to keep me company. That’s about the only thing I can count on these days. But, I keep painting the wolf… Maybe it’s not the best distraction after all.

Well, I have to go. I have classes to get to. Pray for me. Trig is my first class. I hate Trig.

TheMarked1400x2100About The Marked: Knight’s Academy Book 1:

Myka Williams has never fit in with her peers, and although her adoptive parents are loving and supportive, she feels most at home alone in the woods.

When she’s offered a full scholarship to Knight’s Academy in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, she takes the opportunity for a fresh start. She soon learns that Knight’s Academy is more than just a school. Within the stone walls of the institution, humans and vampires are mixing, and their offspring are going unnoticed.

As Myka falls prey to the evil plan of the school, she makes a chilling discovery about her own heritage and realizes that she’s at the Academy for more than just an education. Myka must yield to her birthright at the risk of losing everyone she loves or succumb to the fate that Knight’s Academy has in store for her—a fate worse than death.
