Things get out of hand when Jaxy loses the valuable medallion. He finds himself in fast trouble with the Romanov Guild, who accuses him of theft.

Teaser: The Book of the Sun by Jenny Rook #promo #teaser #spiritual #comingsoon #rabtbooktours @AuthorParul @AuthorJennyRook

 

Spiritual

‘Are these my thoughts or yours?’ I asked.

‘It doesn’t matter,’ said the Sun.  ‘You are me and I am you….’

The Book of the Sun is a record of the conversations between the author and the Sun.  It concerns the structure of the living universe, why it is so difficult here, and why we should all begin to realize that we are all one, and yet diverse at the same time.  It answers many questions that have concerned minds throughout the millennia.  Why are we here?  Why is there suffering?  What is the future for us?  These questions and many more are answered with many surprises for the reader.

This is a god- the Sun, speaking to us through this book – who has contacted us before in Ancient Egypt, the Americas and many other places.  But the message now is that there is no separation, so the Sun is very concerned that we should not make a religion out of this contact.  Religions are based on hierarchies, rules and judgments, and the Sun’s message is not only that we are one but that love and light is the only reality, with a spicing of laughter.



Teaser

'You are in my heart,'

...It was the sheer warmth of the love that took me by surprise.  It melted my heart in gratitude and joy.  It opened me to the most thrilling conversation of my life. 

 

 

About the Author

Jenny Rook was born in Essex, UK and educated at York University, where she graduated with a degree in English and Music. Studying the greats of literature called a halt to her burgeoning desire to write. After various adventures in: the scrap trade; bookselling; helping run an employment agency; and having children, she settled back into her first love, writing. Her first fiction book Fly By Night (1989) was accepted by Headline, the first publisher she sent it to. This was the first of a fantasy trilogy and Headline wanted all three. All her fiction books are published under the name Jenny Jones. Two adult ghost novels followed, Where the Children Cry (1998) and The Blue Manor (1995) both published by Gollancz. Five other fantasy/horror books for teenagers were published by Scholastic (1994, 1995, 1997), Hodder (1995) and Orion (2000).

In 2006, Jenny qualified as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist for children and their families. She worked mainly for the NHS and also volunteered for Sure Start (a UK government initiative to help with the early stages in a mother and baby’s relationship), before taking early retirement to look after her elderly mother. Jenny now lives with her husband, mother, and three dogs in the Cotswolds and writes nonfiction.

The pusher forces him to accept the money upfront with the threat of his demise should he fail to deliver it on time. BJ’s growing obsession with the envelope’s contents leads him down a treacherous path toward the game orchestrators, where he discovers a large-scale political scandal, a treasure hunt for a priceless sword, and a global crime ring linked to a WWII-era secret society.

The house is shaking, colors are sparkling, things are starting to break... and did that toy start moving?

Thirteen-year-old Marley is convinced that Christmas is just for little kids and that magic doesn’t exist, but when she and her siblings tiptoe downstairs in the middle of the night to take a sneak peek at their stockings, she’s about to discover that magic is more real than she ever imagined...

When the children’s toys start coming to life, Marley will need to think fast if she’s to protect her siblings from rampaging dinosaurs and wild monkeys. The fate of them all depends on whether she can find the right kind of magic.

This thrilling and heartwarming adventure is a beautiful tale of a big sister who has forgotten the joys of Christmas.

 

About the Author

Christmas has always been Hilary Hauck’s favorite time of year. Growing up in the United Kingdom, Christmas meant family gatherings, turkey and stuffing, crackers, mince pies, charades, and the Queen’s speech in the afternoon.

According to Hilary, every child should have magic in their life, and stories enlighten us with the endless ways magic is all around. Why did she write this story about the wrong kind of magic? Well, because sometimes we need to feel the wrong kind of something before we know what the right kind looks and feels like.

Hilary is also the author of From Ashes to Song, inspired the true story of three Italians who immigrated to Pennsylvania ninety years before she did. She has written short stories for Like Sunshine After Rain and anthologies in the Mindful Writers Retreat Series.

She grew up in the UK and has also lived in Italy. She lives on a small patch of woods in rural Pennsylvania with her husband and a cat with a penchant for laundry. Visit her at www.hilaryhauck.com.

Book Blitz: Poopie Suits & Cowboy Boots by Frank Hood & Charles Hood #promo #nonfiction #biography #rabtbooktours

6 book Poopie Suits Series


Cold War Biography - Non Fiction

Date Published: 01-17-2018

 

photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

 

Poopie Suits and Cowboy Boots is a story of a young man volunteering to serve aboard a US Submarine, and the life changing journey he had to take to even get on a submarine.  Then, once aboard, you go through the day-to-day life while on the front lines of the Cold War at sea.  The scary incidents, the wild times in ports of call, the ongoing testing the men were subjected to by the crew.  Historical touch points anchor the story in the mid to late 60's, a time of the nascent space program and the Vietnam War.   Frank's story serves as a frame work to explain how submarine systems operate, in simple easy to understand terms.  There is a lot packed into this true story, and we hope that those who read it will come away with an enhanced understanding of what these men went through, the sacrifices that had to made, the unrelenting pressure of zero mistakes in an always potential deadly environment. An deep insight into the Silent Service.


About the Author

Frank Hood received a NROTC Scholarship to Purdue and started his formation to being commissioned as a Naval Officer.  For his Senior Cruise, he was assigned to a WWII era submarine and he saw, first hand, the loose rules coupled with the cool and professional execution of duties, along with the great fun they crew had when the pressure was off. He greatly appreciated the tight camaraderie they had, and he knew that is what he wanted when he graduated.

This is the genesis of this book.  For over 1 year of Nuclear Power and Submarine Officer training, to 3 years of keeping the Soviet Submarine Force at bay, this experience was one of the most impacting of his life.  Post Navy, he worked as an Engineer, Sales Person, and Business Owner.  Retired to New Hampshire and enjoying life. Active in the submarine veteran community, the deep bond formed 50 years before is even stronger and more appreciated.

Charles Hood is a physician practicing in South Carolina. For years he was intrigued by his older brother Frank’s service on a hot running, fast attack submarine, but could not get Frank to ever talk about it. Finally, he convinced Frank by saying, “Even without the secret mission details, your day-to-day life is a unique story, and if you don’t tell it so others can appreciate what you went through, who will?”  With that Frank dictated his story and Charles word smithed it and add additional research.  Vetting by many other sub vets helped reduce the errors caused by 50 year old memories.  The resulting story has been acclaimed by submarine veterans and civilians alike.  It is in its 5th Edition, have had other details and stories added to the original content.
