When All Is Not Well Book Tour & Giveaway! [ends 8/5/17]
Adult Books / August 3, 2017

Health Date Published: July 14, 2015  Publisher: Black Lotus I’ve heard so many people tell those who suffer depression to just “cheer up.” I wonder if they really believe that it’s that simple. Depression isn’t just sadness. It is emptiness, it is misery. It is pain and nothingness at once. When you are truly depressed you lack the ability or will to cheer yourself up. No one just “has depression.” You suffer from it. Even with all our scientific advances, depression remains one of the most mysterious mental illnesses.    Anti-depressants don’t work for everyone just like meditation and vacations don’t work for many others. Ayurvedic and yogic texts dating as back as 5000 years called depression, vishada, a toxic state of mind. In this profoundly insightful work, Om Swami categorizes depression into three types to help you see how a different approach is needed to cure each type. Beautifully woven with soul-stirring case-studies and yogic wisdom, you will gain a new perspective on depression and sadness. Purchase Link: Amazon Reviews When there is Darkness in your life, a person rises to show us light. A light of hope out of depression. That person is OM SWAMI. He is not…

After becoming injured and returning from the hospital he gave up the M-60 to become a squad leader for Special Forces. He endured seven more months of constant change and surprise, but one companion was constant―a voice inside his head that helped him find the right course of action to keep him alive. To this day Fred doesn’t know what it was exactly, but it may have had something to do with that dang rosary! Though he survived Vietnam, Fred was changed in irrevocable ways.

If you missed any of the stops you can see snippets, as well as the link to each full post, below… Launch – Author Interview What motivated you to write THE CHARM OFFENSIVE? We moved often when I was a child because of my father’s job and now with my husband, we’ve continued to relocate around the country.

There are so many wonderful romance series set in small towns and I wanted to write a series about characters who live and work in a big, vibrant city. San Francisco has always been one of my favorite cities and when the idea for The Charm Offensive came up, the City by the Bay seemed like the perfect setting. It’s All About the Romance – Excerpt Sophie Callahan was the first person to pull at him in places he thought only the music could reach.

Adult Books , Children's Books / June 5, 2017

Below is an IMPORTANT MESSAGE from National Geographic Kids! With all the excitement of the final school bell around the corner, it’s time to talk about a sobering reality — summer slide. Did you know that two months of reading skills are LOST over the summer and that it can take up to two months from the first day of school for a student’s brain development to get back on track?  “Brain drain” is very real and has lasting repercussions that can impact a student’s long-term academic performance. One of the most effective, easiest and affordable ways to ensure students are on track academically come September is to make sure kids have access to books throughout the summer. Whether it’s making library visits a part of the summer schedule, starting a neighborhood book swap or incorporating a trip to the local bookstore as part of an outing to the ice cream shop, there are lots of ways to get kids hooked on reading this summer. As the best selling kids almanac on the planet, the National Geographic Kids Almanac has helped millions of kids beat the summer slide. The key to getting a child to pick up a book is to find one that…
