Critics call this cozy mystery series “a laugh-out-loud, whimsical adventure full of tasty Italian dishes and adorable cats!”

Anna Romano is a middle-aged, Italian woman who is also a successful published author, a cat-mama, and an excellent cook with a hankering for Italian cuisine. She lives by herself in her quaint house, in a quiet community, with a white picket fence in Central New Jersey.

In the first installment, on a typical day in Anna's somewhat-perfect life, a book-signing event turns her world upside down. Is it a case of mistaken identity or was she just being paranoid?

After being stalked for weeks, Anna quickly finds herself literally 'tied up', fighting for her life, and desperate to get back home to her cats; all while unwittingly falling in love with the detective who was trying to save her. How she finds her way out of this mess is anyone's guess!

Find out more about Anna and the dangerous cases of murder and mayhem she 'haphazardly' gets herself into, in the new Anna Romano Mystery Series!

Book Bliotz: Vitaly by Vitaly Magidov #promo #memoir #nonfiction #rabtbooktours @vitalybook

 

The Misadventures of a Ukrainian Orphan


Memoir, Autobiography

Date Published: March 10, 2022


photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

Be Inspired with This True Story About a Ukrainian Orphan That Did Whatever He Could to Chase His Dreams - Discover That Even When Life Stacks Its Deck Against You, You Can Still Reach Your Dreams

There's nothing better in this life than finding your true self and being in touch with who you indeed are. But sometimes, life can beat us down and leave us without the will or power to find ourselves and live as we are truly meant to be.

In such situations, we have two options: to either let our circumstances define us or persevere and fight beyond that unbearable state until we reach where we desire to. Vitaly Magidov chose the latter option. Vitaly's touching autobiography highlights the struggles, hardships, accomplishments, and wins that he went through until he became the proficient man he is today.

Vitaly was orphaned right after birth when his mother left him at the hospital, and he ended up living at an orphanage in Ukraine until he was 12 years old. From there, he lived in foster care for six years until he was 18 and ready to face the world head-on. From an early age, Vitaly knew deep down he was different, but he had no clue, or guidance, to meet his true self then; also, living in the USSR times had its challenges.

Life was miserable.

Vitaly would live life without thinking about the future and take each day at face value. He was surrounded by loneliness and tried his best to enjoy life, but he couldn't help but question himself.

"Why wasn't I normal?"

No matter how hard Vitaly tried to conform to what was 'normal,' he just never could. He couldn't escape the feeling that there was something wrong with him. From a young age, he was taught the cycle of life — enjoy your childhood, be good, don't lie, respect your parents, go to school, finish school, get a job, start your own family, retire and savor the rest of your life.

However, he never really knew anyone that lived up to that cycle. Without anyone to turn or look up to, Vitaly was left to figure everything out independently.

Struggle, after struggle, he endured it all. Until he finally decided to question the standard.

This inspiring eye-opener highlights it all, from his childhood mishaps and challenges to his discoveries and accomplishments.

Do you want to read one of the best, most inspiring real-life autobiographies out there?

If you've answered YES, then read on because you are about to uncover one of the most moving autobiographies ever written.


More precisely, this autobiography:

Narrates the real-life events of Vitaly in the first person to give you the experience of his touching story and his life in Ukraine

Provides a comprehensible flow of events from the beginning to adulthood, making it easy to follow-through

It highlights the parallels between the Ukrainian culture and different religions and opens your eyes to people's experiences in other countries.

Vitaly's book clear tone and adventurous stories will keep you glued to the pages.

It is as touching as it is inspiring, and you are sure to draw out some of the essential life lessons from the book.


So, if you are looking for a touching memoir, or if you are feeling confused about who you are and want some inspiration to find personal acceptance, or even if you are looking for a good read, behold Vitaly, the best autobiography. Be inspired and know that it's not simply about what life you're born into; it's about what you make of it.


 

About the Author

Vitaly Magidov was born in Ukraine. His mother left him in a hospital when he was a baby. From there, he was taken into an orphanage and then, at 11, into foster care. Living without parental support was not easy, but he looked at life as a life of opportunities. At age 18, when he was living on his own, he was free to pursue his dreams.

Vitaly came to the U.S. with $3 in his pocket. He is now a U.S. citizen and wants to share his story with the world.

Tour Kick Off: Race for What? by JD Mass #blogtour #nowontour #giveaway #nonfiction #rabtbooktours @JDMass1




A White Man's Journey & Guide to Healing Racism from Within

Race & Ethnic Relations

Date Published: March 29, 2022

Publisher: R4W INC


Race is currently a hot topic of discussion. Questions being considered are: Does racism still exist? What does equity look like? How do we achieve justice?

Anti-black racism is real. It hasn't been corrected and it won’t go away on its own. Aboriginal (Black) and Indigenous folks have carried the burden for far too long. It is time for white folks to take the next step and complete the mission.

Race For What? provides stories with a unique perspective from a white man's experience and his idea for seven steps to healing. JD Mass PsyD, the author, encourages white people to work through the emotional and psychological obstacles in order to repair and heal the harm racism has caused.

JD Mass has been on a lifelong journey to learn why racism was created and what we can look forward to without it. Change is happening. Will it be the superficial change that doesn’t bring forth justice or the transformational healing that is needed? Race For What? provides a vision for the latter.



About the Author

Growing up within a black community, witnessing racism firsthand, activist JD Mass PsyD tells of his successes and missteps in building powerful alliances with melanated people. JD’s parents chose to raise him in the only diverse community in St. Louis where he was able to witness and experience racism and cultural differences. It sparked an inner desire to understand why we created such a world.

JD has always had an entrepreneurial spirit, starting a tennis teaching organization with his college coach. Shortly after graduating with a degree in finance, he played a pivotal role of structuring Nelly’s early business ventures, including Apple Bottoms Jeans and Derrty Entertainment.

JD followed his time with Nelly by joining The African Hebrew Israelites of Jerusalem to learn community building based on health, peace, and sharing.

In 2017 JD achieved his doctorate in Organizational Psychology and became heavily involved in white antiracism groups in Los Angeles and later in St. Louis. This work in anti-racism reflecting on what he learned throughout his journey inspired him to write “Race for What?” A wise thinker and guide, JD dares white folks to stay the course to finally correct the harm of racism and help create a humane world.

This book will not make you comfortable. It will challenge you to dig deeper, think harder, and make room for new possibilities.

Teaser Tuesday: Bubble Trouble by Alejandria Kate #promo #childrensbook #comingsoon #teaser #excerpt #rabtbooktours @AuthorParul

 

 

Children’s Book 

Date Published: April 6, 2022


photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

 

This is the story of two adventurous bears, their protective mama, mischievous bubbles, and a magical witch. Ignoring their mother’s wishes, Boo and Butter stray down the path toward Granny Grumblewitch’s house into a world of bubble-brewed danger. Granny holds their fate in her gnarled hands . . . will they return to the safety of their cave?

 Alejandria Kate wrote Bubble Trouble with the hope that Boo and Butter’s story shows children that truly loving parents mean only what is best for them . . . that any boundaries, warnings or admonishments are intended to protect, not to prevent them from having fun. Any deviation from the defined boundaries could result in unhappy consequences. Parents like Mama Bear know what is best, safest -- and love them above and beyond anything else.


Teaser

 

Butter made a happy growl and clapped his furry paws. I grinned and said, “Mama, bubbles really do bounce. And they giggle, too.”

Teaser Tuesday: The Layover by Gale Stanley #promo #excerpt #comingsoon #gayromance #mmromance #Rabtbooktours @changelingpress

 

Contemporary / Gay Romance

Date Published: 4/1/22

Inside the cockpit, Captain Paul Miller is always in control. But on the ground, he constantly feels adrift. His marriage is crumbling, and life has become much too complicated.

Jamey Conley has worked hard to make his cafĂ© in the Frisco airport a successful venture. He loves his work – and especially the airport scenery. He goes gaga over guys in uniform, but when he meets Paul, sparks really fly. Too bad his ideal man is married -- and straight.


 

Excerpt

 

“Paul?” Jamey came running up. “My friend called. He can’t make it. Can I share a taxi with you?”

Almost as if it were fate, a cab pulled up at that very moment.

No! “Sure.”

Paul slid across the leather seat, and Jamey followed him inside.

The driver turned sideways, and looked over his shoulder. “Where to?”

“Gateway Suites,” Paul said.

The cabbie nodded, and started to turn away.

“Wait.” Paul looked at Jamey. “Tell him where you’re going.”

“Gateway Suites.”

“No.” Paul shook his head. “No, he’s not going there. No.”

“I’m going to the Gateway,” Jamey insisted.

The driver snorted derisively. “I’m not getting in the middle of a lover’s quarrel. You wanna get out here, or go to the Gateway?”

“The Gateway,” Jamey said.

Paul swore under his breath. The cab pulled away from the curb.

Paul tried to keep his voice low. “What kind of game are you playing?”

“I don’t play games, Paul.”

“Then stop acting like a kid,” Paul said in a hoarse whisper. “I don’t want to fuck you.”

Jamey’s eyebrows shot up, and hid themselves under a lock of caramel hair. “Who said anything about fucking?”

The driver turned with a big grin on his face.

“Keep your eyes on the road,” Paul yelled, before facing Jamey. “Damn it, keep your voice down.”

“But now that you mention it…” Jamey cupped Paul’s crotch, and rubbed.

Paul intended to push him away, but Jamey’s lips were so close to his. One heated look and they both knew what was coming. Their lips met as if magnetized and it was magic.

Jamey’s mouth was so warm, so soft, much softer than Paul had imagined, and he opened his mouth with a low moan. Jamey slipped his tongue inside. It was just like the movies. Time stopped. Everything disappeared, even the nosy driver. It was just him and Jamey. Until they pulled apart.

Paul sighed. He drew back and studied Jamey’s face. Jamey stared back, his feelings showed plainly on his face. He was thrilled beyond words to be the recipient of Paul’s affection.

Damn, damn, damn. Paul was completely unprepared for the feelings that kiss stirred in him, but he couldn’t bring himself to admit it. He feigned a disgusted look and shook his head. “Sorry, Jamey. I had too much to drink tonight. You’re a great guy, but I’m not gay.”

Jamey’s happy expression faded. “You know what I think, Paul?” Jamey moved away. “I think you’re lying. To me. And most of all to yourself.” Jamey tapped the driver on the shoulder. “Take me to Dartmouth Street please.”
