I am the author of: "NO TIME TO CRY" - One Woman's Will to Survive Against All Odds.
The author’s continuing source of strength throughout her ten year ordeal of mayhem and mishaps is her never-ending faith and trust in God. It is with Ms. Wallace’s explicit bone-chilling account of her five year old son’s near fatal car accident, that she not only makes you feel the sheer terror of that moment, but goes a step further to confess her own human flaws in the wake of God’s mercy. Thus, letting you know that there’s a viable reason why she believes the way she does, and how she not only coped, but managed to survive it all.

Do you see her? Chloe does. Chloe Cameron sees the little girl, prancing around joyfully and silently in her white dress.
Fear explodes into pure terror when Chloe becomes desperate for answers. Darkness threatens to engulf her life in this nail biting, edge of your seat paranormal thriller with a romantic twist. She doesn’t even know who—orwhat she is running from.
Fire and ice. Light and Darkness. Good vs. Evil. Chloe is on a collision course with chaos, and her life hangs in the balance as she desperately searches for answers. She’s fighting for her life, and just like any other fight, there will be a winner…and there will be a loser.
This isn't your average ghost story. Or your average romance. Danger lurks around every corner. With every flip of a page. You could be immersed in a steamy romance one minute, and the next you're engaged in a battle of life or death. It's definately a good read for people across many genres. Thrillers. Romances. Ghost stories. Secrets Shrouded in White has it all.

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.

Murder Begets Murder and Deadly Favors by DM Nelson 99¢
Murder Begets Murder is a suspenseful mystery thriller set in Washington State against a backdrop of island ferries, mountain roads, and deadly twists.
Seattle defense attorney, Mac Brodie, has a beautiful wife, two young children, and lives in tony Mercer Island on Lake Washington. He made a fortune back east so now has the luxury of picking his clients by their need, not their paycheck. His wife wants Mac to use his looks and charm to run for congress, but he loves what he does and with whom he does it. His investigator, Seth Ivarsson is a 6’7” pony-tailed behemoth ex-cop who lives on a houseboat, and describes himself as more loyal than moral. The third and last member of Brodie’s team is a thirty year-old legal assistant, Brooke Fletcher who’s in her third year of law school. Though immensely attracted to her, Mac values his family too much to mess around – and she doesn’t seem interested.
Mac’s latest client, Earl Richards, is on death row and guilty as sin. But Mac doesn’t believe in the death penalty and will do whatever it takes to get the sentence commuted. Little could he predict the nightmare that leaves everyone he loves in imminent danger and his life forever changed.
New England is known for its history but someone is willing to do whatever it takes to keep a part of it buried forever. From the streets of Boston to the underworld of Providence to the lakes of New Hampshire, Deadly Favors is a taut legal thriller ripped from today's headlines of racism and the modern growing threat of the super rich with frightening agendas.
It’s the eve of the 2012 election. Super Storm Sandy is ready to blast the northeast. Seattle Defense Attorney Mac Brodie and his investigator Seth Ivarsson travel to Boston to look into the racially charged thirty-year-old murder of a white coed. Meanwhile new law partner Brooke Fletcher, minding the shop back in Seattle, finds herself immersed in her own case involving a missing juvenile and the juvenile who may have murdered him.
When strange things start happening on the streets and subways of Boston, Mac is unconcerned but Seth is sure that the events have something to do with the case. After an evening of festivity, the unthinkable happens and blaming themselves, the survivors seek solace in revenge. With Sandy about to hit, an unlikely pair teams up to try to save one of their own, but as the night wears on, they find themselves in the eye of an entirely different kind of storm that promises untold devastation.

Review Title- Excellent Advice: ***** 5-Star review on Amazon By Suzanne White: Nobody much really knows how to breathe. This savvy book clues you in without boring you to tears. It's a terrific self-helper. SL -Paris.
This is one of the most powerful books on breathing. Chapter 5, for example, explains two sets of breathing exercises which takes you out of this world. This not only explains what many people learn in expensive workshops and remote retreats but very personal routine the author follows.
The book teaches you breathing-based technique called the healing breath. It incorporates specific natural rhythms of breath to release stress and bring the mind to the present moment. The book also includes other breathing techniques, meditation, low-impact yoga, and skills for dealing effectively with challenging emotions and situations.
Several independent studies on mental and physical health benefits of the breathing are given along with source, which have been published in international peer-reviewed journals. The studies confirm that practitioners of breathing techniques not only experience physical and mental comfort in their own breathing, but find cures for common illnesses from heart disease and cancer to asthma.
The “Power of Breathing” is written to be enjoyed by people of all traditions, religions, and walks of life, in universities, churches, governments, businesses, prisons, war zones, community rooms, and living rooms. The book is complete in itself and is also a foundation of healthy living.
What is called “Sudarshan Kriya” by new age gurus is a cycle of breaths—long, medium and short. Not only breathing patterns influence our emotions, the breath is in the present and is used to "rope in the wandering mind" that oscillates wildly between the past and the future. Like Zen masters who teach that the present moment is a chink opening into eternity, this guide describes the use of breathing to rope the present that frees our mind from the past which is nothing but history and the future which is mystery.
You will learn:
* Practices that heal and harmonize the body, mind, and spirit
* Skills for handling negative emotions and situations
* Practical wisdom for improving work and relationships
* Insight into the laws that govern the mind and emotions
* Stretching and low-impact yoga combined with breathing for health, circulation, and body stillness

eBook and Printed Edition
Science, Religion & Spirituality arrives at a time when youth is returning to a kind of religion where spirituality is on the rise. There is no longer value in articles with titles such as “Is God Dead?” Today we are using science to complement our spirituality. This new notion prompted the writing of this book that combines Eastern religious traditions and Western scientific knowledge to develop practical spirituality. This guide teaches how to observe the mind, to live in gratitude, and to discard expectations. The benefits of focusing on our spiritual-self include tranquility, increased production, a resurgence of vitality, mental clarity and joy of living. There is even a test to know your spirituality level. This book is not about creating a new religion, sect or movement, but in fact is about loving every religion.
There are books on god and religion, and on spirituality. But this is one book that presents reconciliation between science and god/religion. A rare blend that brings science and spirituality together which are generally treated as oil and water. "Science, Religion & Spirituality" (Similar to Human Genome leader Collin's belief) explains that Science and God can co-exist.
Truth cannot contradict itself. Truth from science and truth from God/Religion must eventually converge into one grand whole, a unified knowledge of the laws that govern our universe. Those who fight over superiority of one over the other are blinded by ignorance about both.
In the past, East has lived religiously-- that is one pole-- and because it has lived religiously it has not been able to produce good science. The West has lived scientifically, and because of its science it has lost track of spirituality. Now for the first time in this space age and internet: the earth is becoming one global village. This is the time when the reconciliation between science and religion can be seen, can be understood.
The author has an advanced degree in life sciences and molecular biology from the West, and a fascination with yoga, breathing, religion, and spirituality from the East, crafted out of studies at Yale University, U.S.A., and Punjab University, India. Therefore, he presents quite successfully: Eastern and Western synthesis of science, religion, and spirituality.
The book consists of nine chapters and each chapter starts with an appropriate quote by some famous spiritualist, divine personality, prophet, philosopher or by the author itself: Chapter 1, The Power of Spirituality; Chapter 2, Religious Practices and New Consciousness; Chapter 3, The Universal Divine Mind; Chapter 4, A Free Mind; Chapter 5, Spiritual Living I; Chapter 6, Spiritual Living II; Chapter 7, God and Spirit; Chapter 8, Evil–The Absence of Goodness; Chapter 9, Full Living. The chapters precede by ‘A Word’ of introduction, and are followed by ‘Test of Your spirituality Level,’ and References.
The book introduction starts with a popular quote by Albert Einstein: “Religion without science is blind. Science without religion is lame” However, Dr. Dhillon goes even further to prove reconciliation between science and religion.
There are 3 chapters that describe: How concept of god and spirituality help us coping with stress. These describe virtues such as surrender, forgiveness, prayer, positive thinking, and control over mind. There is information about relieving fear of death and disease, and creating a state of mind without fear. Concept of soul and reincarnation, evil, hell, and heaven are explained from both scientific and religious point of view. There is another chapter on: How our attitude and actions are related to pain and pleasure, love, friendship, and happiness. An understanding of science, religion, and spirituality will put us on a road to love and happiness irrespective of our faith.

I, Jacob Pence, published a book several years ago called "Kids, Don't Try This at Home". It can be be purchased at the Barnes and Noble store in Harrisonburg, VA, or Barnes and Noble.com, Amazon.com or as an e-book. I have always had unusual experiences throughout my lifetime and have always been told I should write a book. Finally, I got around to it. My wife always tells me that I put the Pro in procrastinator. My book is about some of the funny experiences I have had through the years, starting from about five years of age up until a few years ago. My book can be found under humour and I make people this offer: if you don't laugh, you can get your money back. I made one women wet her pants from laughing so hard and even big he-men have laughed so hard they cried. Men love the chapter where I tell about what should have been an excellent date night except I ate way too much chili earlier in the day. You can figure out what happened. I tell about a show and tell at elementary school that almost got me expelled. I am a retired funeral director and I have devoted one entire chapter to my work experiences. That chapter is called "We Put the Fun Back in Funeral". There is also one chapter on my rat year experiences at VMI. I had a lot of fun working on my book and have received lots of favorable comments on it.
This is a parallel novel to Times of Trouble and Times of Trial.
Can a nineteen year old stay true to the faith he was brought up on when he's under the spotlight?
Timothy Phillips dreams come true when he's discovered by the producer of a national talent show. So what's the problem? The recording contract is not in the Southern Gospel he would prefer to sing. As he begins recording and performing the music, he encounters increasing hostility towards Christians. Can he stay true to his faith, or will he end up compromising his beliefs little by little the more famous he becomes?
When his world comes crashing down, will he have anything left to help him stand as the end times approach?
