Author Cindy Parker Brings Her Readers Two Books of Poetry For The Soul – Spectrum and Origins

November 5, 2009 at 9:37 pm (faith, family, health, poetry) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )


OriginsCindy Parker grew up in Clarklake, Michigan and currently lives in the downtown Jackson area. She has two collections of poetry that were recently published (2009) titled Spectrum & Origins. Spectrum is her first book of poetry and is a collection of 74 poems written and compiled over a ten-year period that reflects a spiritual journey across a spectrum of themes. Her inspiration comes from nature, the world around her, her faith, people who have influenced her life, the struggle for redemption, and how Christ answers her deepest longings. Origins is built around similar themes from nature, creation, and spiritual hope, but she also draws from her personal past, growing up, and exploring her family history, and themes of shared humanity. Origins has 32 poems written more recently plus some nature haiku. Both books are largely free verse, but in addition to the few haiku, she has an occasional prose, quatrain, or tetractys. Cindy has enjoyed the language of poetry for many years and continues to write. Grateful for all the people who have helped her fulfill a dream, she wants to encourage others to find their voice and creativity as it will begin a journey of discovery that will continue to unfold.

Innovative Author Michael Robert Dyet Takes His Novel Until The Deep Water Stills to A New Level

October 11, 2009 at 4:35 pm (love, romance, Suspense Novels) (, , , , , , , , , , )


UDWS_book cover_LoRezFor Katherine Orr the words “I love you” are not enough. Only a demonstrative expression of her husband Jayce’s love can rescue their relationship. But Jayce’s personal demons prevent him from giving her this even though he knows that she is all that stands between him and a descent into chaos. Simultaneously, Bryan struggles to repair the breach of love in his life caused by the death of his daughter. But his wife, Jayce’s sister, grows ever more distant. Charismatic social activist Faith, who longs for love but fears she will lose herself in it, unwittingly becomes the catalyst for change in the lives of all four characters. The paths of these four converge toward a tragic event as each struggles to decipher the intricacies of love lost and love found. Each discovers in their own way that love is the living core of human existence and that how we love defines who we are. Until the Deep Water Stills weaves together memorable characters with a tightening web of external events. It ranges from lyrical to provocative in its narrative technique and from introspective to universal it its message. Metaphors weave throughout the narrative creating a layered and rich reading experience.

 

INNOVATIVE INTERNET-ENHANCED NOVEL FORMAT

 

Each chapter in the print novel has a corresponding entry on the companion website where readers can choose to expand their experience of the novel. The website offers secondary plot lines not found in the print novel as the characters find themselves with an actual online identity:

 

  • Katherine’s Photo Journal (text & photographs)
  • Jayce’s Diary (text & audio recordings)
  • Bryan’s Blog (under a pseudonym)
  • Faith’s Letters to Her Runaway Mother (text & audio recordings)

 

The reader can approach the book three ways: 1) Read the print novel only as it can stand on its own,  2) Alternate between the print novel and the website chapter by chapter,  3) Read the print novel first and then experience the website.

Book Summary

 

Frantically running towards the open doors of her life, instantly they slammed shut!  Boldly marked with a “going out of business” sign and dead bolted closed. There it was, her life, vanishing immediately before her eyes.

 

After years of struggling and searching for an understanding of her life, K.M. Johnson found herself stumbling upon a spiritual journey revealing the true meaning of having faith in GOD.  Knowing The Struggle Is Over takes the reader through a 3-step process in restoring their faith in GOD.  This spiritual journey proves to the Christian believer that having faith in GOD is the only tool needed to overcome any struggle. Knowing The Struggle Is Over discusses how different circumstances in life may lead to doubt, unbelief, and fear. Ms. Johnson shares her experience on how she learned to stop complaining, let go and let God, and finally acknowledge that GOD is truly in control.

 

Knowing The Struggle Is Over incorporates several exercises that keep the reader fully interacted throughout their entire journey. The 3-step process may be shared with others and practiced daily. Knowing The Struggle Is Over addresses changes in today’s world, the new religions that have transpired, and many of the tragedies we have encountered.  The need for revisiting the foundation upon which Christianity is built is fulfilled through scripture references, and comments on biblical passages profoundly embedded within each chapter. Knowing the struggle is over entails real-life applications in addition to practical messages. Whatever your situation or circumstance as you conquer this spiritual journey together with the author, you will find your pathway to Knowing The Struggle Is Over.

A Promise Kept; The Story of One Widowed Bride’s Journey through Grief

October 1, 2009 at 11:27 pm (Biographies, Crime Novels, Suspense Novels) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )


A Promise KeptGrief: An Invisible Genre until Now

New heart-rending memoir is about how one woman survives a tragic loss

 

Lynnwood, WA – Those who read Anne Rule’s 1999 book and New York Times bestseller, A Rage To Kill, would know that the first chapter (A Bus To Nowhere) is about the true story of the heroic Seattle Metro Transit driver who was tragically shot and killed in the line of duty on the Aurora Bridge the day after Thanksgiving, 1998, in an unprovoked act of violence, the worse in Metro history.

 But Rule’s recollection of the driver and his family was based solely on hearsay and public knowledge. Now, for the first time, Elise Crawford—the brave man’s widow—in this stirring memoir A Promise Kept courageously allows us a glimpse into how her world was shattered—and how she managed to put the pieces back together.

The life-altering paradox of that fateful day, November 27, 1998, marks the beginning for the driver’s young widow who journals her spiraling descent into hell through a complex system of paths, obstacles—including the tragic death of her mother—and betrayals through which she inevitably becomes lost, essentially missing for nearly eight years in a labyrinthine maze of grief. By no means a poster child for grief, she leans the hard way that grief cannot be outrun, that it has to be faced head on.

 

In A Promise Kept, she reveals her true feelings, raw emotions, and mental anguish she suffered needlessly while making her way down that road less traveled—the journey of grief. Riding every wave, letting the ebb and flow of the tide of grief flow over her, she learns valuable lessons that she never wanted to learn, about the value of life, faith, and self-discovery.  Most importantly, she learns that of all the stages of grief, the most difficult of all is the stage of acceptance, the only one that will show her out of the door of the past and into the present toward healing.

 

Bio :
Elise Crawford was born on a cold and wet November day in the Motor City the year U. S. troops were sent to prevent the South Vietnamese government from collapsing, during election week the year the Voting Rights Act was signed into congress, the year Kellogg’s introduced Pop Tarts, and the year that the first close up photographs of Mars were taken. Elise moved with her mother and younger sister, Jenny, to Seattle in 1968.

        Although not formally educated as a writer, Elise has been writing creative fiction since she was eight years old. Elise holds several Associate of Arts degrees; one in Liberal Arts, two in Social Sciences, and one Technical. Throughout her college education she maintained her membership with the Phi Theta Kappa honor society while raising her two children single-handedly and working on the college campus part-time teaching college level English to fellow ESL students.  

        Elise is a native of Washington; she and Roberto reside in Lynnwood, Washington, with their four cats—Sniffles, Lucky, Foxy, and Fluke. Their CEDAR-AL business continues to flourish and prosper. Elise has two grown children; a son, Dale, and a daughter, Lexi. Her son, Dale, is currently serving in the United States Navy as an aviation ordinance man. His ultimate goal is to become a Navy SEAL. He plans to make the Navy his career. Her daughter, Lexi, lives in southwest Washington, works full-time in a bank, and attends a technical college full-time. Her ultimate goal is to become an architectural engineer.

        A Promise Kept is Elise’s first book; “Spiritual Intervention” was her first short story prior to the writing of this book. She is currently working on Wednesday’s Child, a prequel to A Promise Kept.

 With a sequence of poignant chronological photographs, A Promise Kept not only gives readers “the rest of the story” of that tragic day, but also reaches out to other survivors of tragic loss in hopes they come away with the strength and courage needed to face, to accept, and to begin their own grief journey, regardless of the nature of their loss. If you are searching for a real-life story of love and tragic loss to relate to, and to seek hope and comfort from, then you will want to read A Promise Kept.

Absence of Faith and Dark End of the Spectrum byAnthony Samuel Policastro

DARK END OF THE SPECTRUM Synopsis

Absense of FaithHave you ever wondered what people would do if you took away their faith, their hope, and their religion? Is religion and mores what keeps us civilized and superior to the animal kingdom? My wife and I were discussing these very ideas one day and we thought it would make an interesting plot for a novel.

The result was ABSENCE OF FAITH, a modern day medical mystery thriller, where negative near death experiences plague a small, highly religious town causing many of its residents to lose their faith, and their belief in the future. When some residents wake up with burnt skin, they believe they went to hell and that God has abandoned them. Matters get worse when a local cult uses the opportunity to promote their beliefs and win over the town residents. Will Chantress, the heroine, stop Kyle Mabus from destroying all known religions in the world?

Dark End of The Spectrum

DARK END OF THE SPECTRUM Synopsis

Dan Riker’s life was pretty well planned, predictable and almost boring until a seemingly harmless blackout occurs along the East Coast.

Believing hackers caused the blackouts, the CIA recruits Dan to investigate the massive outages. It is just the challenge he was looking for – something to interrupt the boring, mind-numbing routine of his everyday life.  

But when Dan’s wife and 8-year-old daughter are kidnapped, his challenge takes an ominous turn and he resents his involvement with the CIA. He wonders if his family is dead or alive and if he can continue to fight an invisible enemy with no possibility to win.  

When the hackers, a group known as ICER, take over the power grid and the cell phone network, Dan is nearly killed in an ambush because he may be the only person with the technical know-how to stop them. He is taken in by an elite team of technical gurus who work for a company with connections to the nation’s security organizations and the President.

With the help of the company, Dan discovers the hackers use a special wireless device installed in cell towers by Homeland Security after 911 to disable the electronics in everything from aircraft to PDAs. The hackers also turn the device into a powerful directed energy weapon that can track and kill any person when they use a cell phone.

ICER gives the government an ultimatum – bomb the borders of Afghanistan and Pakistan with nuclear weapons to put an end to Al-Quada or they will start downing commercial airliners. When the government refuses, ICER destroys most of the downed aircraft in airports all over the country. When ICER sends a pulse that will kill most of the people on East Coast, Dan struggles with saving millions or saving his family.

Will Dan Riker save his family or will millions die?

 

 

 

 

Biography:Anthony
Writing has been something I always did no matter where the winds of life took me. I always wrote.

It could be a paragraph here or there, an idea for a new piece of technology or how I felt about a particular political situation or news event. I feel I have this voice inside that is always trying to say something, get its message out, make a difference, enlighten, entertain or just make people see things a little differently. I think everyone has a unique voice, but some choose to express theirs more than others. Mine seems to be shouting all the time.

Words are powerful things – they change people for better or worse, move mountains, and cause monumental changes. Look what words did to Romeo and Juliet. Shakespeare’s words are just as powerful today as they were when he wrote them over 500 years ago. Imagine, writing something today that is so universal, so truthful, so inspiring that people still read it 500 years from now.

Words have that powerful effect on us no matter where we find them, in a book, in a magazine, on a computer screen.

Words are food for the mind. They make us think, imagine, dream, dance in the joy of the things we love.

When I write a scene I know that each one of us who reads it will see different images, experience a different experience and have a unique feeling. This is the power of storytelling. TV or video games can never awaken our imaginations like words do when you read a story. If you choose to express your inner voice through words like I do, then all you can do is write.

The Oracles 333 By Deborah Simpson

August 3, 2009 at 7:09 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )


The-OraclesA limited collection of poetry written through means of given words rather than deliberate thought. Oracles have been around for centuries dating back to c.1300 BC. You will see striking correlations to the oracles found in Ancient Egypt, Greece, India, Mesoamerica, Nigeria, and Tibet. The poem, Faith in Faith provides answers to specific spiritual questions, such as the oracle of Akashwani or “voice from the sky” in ancient India which was related to the “message of God.” You will read through verses such as Grail of Then and Enterprise which bear stark resemblance to the type of oracle Delphi of Greece told Crosesus of Lydia, “If you cross the river, you will destroy a great empire.” Croesus attacked, but it was his own empire that was destroyed. Poems like Demise of the Pharaoh and Mortal Destruction shadow forewarnings such as the Mesoamerica Books of Chilam Balam. In numerology, 333 symbolizes the Ascended Masters are near you giving guidance and love.

JewelOfTheAdriaticJewel of the Adriatic (Buy link: http://tinyurl.com/qu4pl6:  What happens when a nightgown model and a soap opera star meet in a Croatian village where millions believe the Mother of God appears to three visionaries?  Yugoslavian born Maya Lidovic owns Intimate Whispers, a New York based sleepwear company.  Determined not to lose her faith in a secular world, she spends her vacations leading tours in Valselo where her parents run an inn.  Colin O’Reilly plays heartthrob, Dr. Brock Stone, on the soap opera Tides Of Tomorrow.  Through various setbacks in life he’s managed to keep God first.  But now he’s furious at God for taking his mother.  Colin doesn’t believe that God has sent the Virgin Mary to earth with messages of hope.  Can a series of apparitions, prophetic dreams and earthy attraction draw these different people together when human frailties obscure the intention of the call that brought them to their destinies?

RoseOfTheAdriaticRose of the Adriatic (Buy link: http://tinyurl.com/na2vbs):  Wounded and faithless, Dr. Matthew Robbins arrives in a small Croatian village determined to discredit the visionary who claims to see the Mother of God.  Matt believes in only proven facts, and he’s sure Anna Babic is either lying or delusional.  But, despite all his unpopular testing, he can’t disprove Anna’s visions — and what’s worse, he finds himself falling for the beautiful visionary who peak to the Blessed Virgin Mary.  Anna has experience skeptics in the past, and they’ve never left a lasting effect.  But Matt is different.  Despite his open disbelief and vehemence to discredit her, she finds herself hoping he’ll change his mind.  Drawn together as if by a heavenly hand, can Anna choose a life as the wife to her unlikely match?  Can Matt believe on faith alone that God loves him enough to heal him and free him to love Anna?

Liz was jilted by her fiancé the same day her parents died ten years ago and Jack’s mother abandoned her small sons to life with a father who never recovered from the separation.  

Now Liz faces the man who destroyed her at a college reunion, with Jack as her companion instead of Charlie who engineers the covert substitution.  As Liz and Jack collide in the present can they overcome their pasts and find forever?
