Re: Body Back: The Mother's Handbook to Medical, Physical and Emotional Well-Being, Heather Porter

Back with my somewhat of a review of this particular book, the author, and etc.  Basically, have mixed feelings on it.  I felt both the book and author had it their good and bad qualities.  At the same time would love if the author of it would have done more of though learning and researching in regards to all of this. Not just in this particular area, but others and etc.  Because I do know for a fact theres even more to all of this. It includes men, children, babies, and etc.  Especially, looking into both the alternative, mainstream, and etc lifestyles.  In which she incorporates into her next book/s because I'm really passionate about all of these rights and issues.  Including all living things and etc.

 

Think thats it for now

Bonfire Confessions of the **A$$hole** Club, by R. C. Allen

[ Edited ]

 Hello!!! For anyone who likes a good, curled up around the fire type of novel, please give "Bonfire Confessions" a try. In the vein of "The Prince of Tides," or 'The Ya-Ya Sisterhood," it actually takes place in the very real town of Muncie, Indiana. Four strangers meet on a long bus ride, and three interrupt their plans to join Dan in his quest to fix up his parents' home, after they are brutally murdered. Days are spent fixing up the old place, and at night, over a series of bonfire confessions, his new friends purge themselves of the secrets that have made each an outcast from their friends and family. As for Dan, he not only has to confront the tragedy he had buried for years since his childhood, he must decide whether to try again to make a go of it in his hometown, or return to the wife who no longer seems to want him.

 

"Bonfire Confessions of the **bleep** Club" can be found at Bonfire Confessions of the **bleep** Club or through the author's web page: http://www.rcallenwriting.com

Re: Read My Book!-Soul and Reincarnation

Soul and Reincarnation  

Short description

The views on soul and reincarnation vary from no such thing as a ‘soul’ to only humans possess a soul, to both humans and animals possess a soul, and that soul likewise dies when the physical body dies or that soul is immortal and never dies. All religions believe in the existence of SOUL in human body, but they differ in what happens after death. This manuscript searches for the truth.


NOTE: "Soul and Reincarnation" is available in printed edition now.

Casualties of the (Recession) Depression by Heather Joan Marinos

"Has economic activity returned to close to normal levels?"

 

Did the "Great Recession" really end in June 2009?

 

Is the American economy in a recession, a depression,

 or on the road to recovery?

 

Do our political leaders and economists truly believe what they are saying, or are they deluging us with "feel-good" marketing rhetoric?

 

In her own evocative and mince-no-words style, Heather Joan Marinos argues that American economic activity has not returned to close to normal levels.

 

Through a writer's lens, we catch a glimpse of some of the poignant moments in the lives of the people most affected by this economic downturn ― the middle class.  Heather takes the reader on an American odyssey from 2006 to the present day, through a collection of vignettes and scenes, and some passionate commentary along the way.

 

It is, after all, the people who tell the real story of our economy.  Their challenges and triumphs are not rhetoric. Their resilience and humanity is what gives us hope for a prosperous and triumphant future.

new novel

Hello- I have stopped by to recommed my own nove, Chronicle of Jongleur, The Storyteller.  Please consider this historical fiction epic set in 13th century Britain and Europe.  Four generations of one family descended from Mary Magdalene.  I t took me a year to give a good historical  ackground to this tale of the inquisitions.  My characters are charming and compelling.  The storyline is contoversial and thought provoking.  I decided to go right to the readers for reviews.  You won't soon forget the characters or the story. Jongleur is a young man on a mission and he takes the reader on a memorable trip through Europe with him, meeting knights, kings, and the Doge of Venice.  You will want to hold on to the heroes and attack the villains.  Thank you for considering my novel and happy reading!.

The Brown House by Christy Sloat

"A chilling true tale woven for Young Adult readers"

Brylee Branson begrudgingly made the excruciating move with her family from the warm sandy beaches of California to small town living in New Jersey. As if she wasn’t miserable enough, they’ve moved into a creepy old house that everyone in the area claims is haunted. Brylee dismisses the idea of ghosts and hauntings, until she begins to see and hear things that can’t be explained…

Brylee has no choice but to seek the help of new friends to unlock the secrets of this place she now calls home. But some secrets should never be revealed. Can the teens find a way to release the spirits imprisoned within the walls? Or will the curse claim them, too?

 

YES this book was written about a REAL house in New Jersey. I happen to be married to the original owner of the home. So after years of hearing his stories I wrote The Brown House. Check out my website: www.christysloat.com for news on the next book in this series and my other books. My books are available everywhere and yes in stores as well. Thank you!! http://www.barnesandnoble.com/c/christy-sloat
