Fantasy Author Ron Glick Returns To Oz and Neverland

Fifth Book In the Oz-Wonderland Series Releases on March 1, 2017

Kalispell, Montana, 2017-Mar-03 — /EPR MEDIA NEWS/ — In 2013, fantasy author Ron Glick broke away from his epic fantasy series and journeyed into the faery realms of Oz and Wonderland to chronicle the adventures of the classic heroines, Alice Liddell and Dorothy Gale. The result was a modern-day high fantasy series exploring the uncharted history shared between the two magical worlds. Last year, Glick expanded his magical realms to introduce Neverland into his masterful reworked Victorian-era fantasy.

In the original trilogy, Alice Liddell and Dorothy Gale united to save both Oz and Wonderland. But the Cheshire Cat warned that there were more faery realms that needed to be found, which led our heroines on a quest last year to meet Peter Pan, Tinkerbell and eventually a journey into Neverland. Meanwhile, the Wicked Witche Mombi is still plotting against the good forces of all the mystical realms united.

Now the series resumes with “Peter of Oz”, where Alice and Dorothy must journey into the Dark Heart of Neverland to confront both Mombi and a n oddly changed Glinda the Good. Meanwhile, Toto follows his own clues in a search for a way to stop the Cheshire Cat – a threat that only he seems aware even exists.

The Oz-Wonderland series has been by far Ron Glick’s most well-received series. Now, with the fifth release further delving into the secrets of the Wicked Witches and their origins of Oz, Wonderland and Neverland, Glick sets the foundation for an ongoing adventure that promises to bring these classic stories into their own epic scale for years yet to come.

“This book has had me on edge and now it’s torturing me! You’ve got to read this book! I give it a rating of 10 out of 10 as it has literally got me wanting more!” – L. Allison Burres, on “The Wizard In Wonderland”

Ron Glick is a community activist, and has been active in several charitable enterprises. He was born in Plainville, KS. After living in various states, he currently lives in Kalispell, MT. He is the author of The Godslayer Cycle, Chaos Rising, the Oz-Wonderland series, and Ron El’s Comic Book Trivia, as well as having written a screenplay adaptation of The Wizard In Wonderland. Additionally, he created the Golden Age Preservation Project as a means of making Golden Age comics more accessible to modern audiences. His expose, U.S. Political Prisoner Since 2004, broke him away from his fictional works to shed light upon political corruption in Kalispell and Flathead County, Montana.

“Questionable Minds,” a New Book: Conversations with Writers about Writing

OTTAWA, Ontario CANADA, 2017-Feb-15 — /EPR Network/ — The mind of a writer is a mysterious place. In Questionable Minds: conversations with writers, social psychologist dr george pollard gives a guided tour of the creative mental landscape of writers. In this unique collection of conversations, dr pollard explores the making of a fictional story or a stand-up comedy routine.

If you’re curious how your favourite novel or stand-up comedy routine comes into being, Questionable Minds helps you find out. This new book helps answer many questions. Where do the ideas come from? How do authors develop their characters? What is the secret of writing a successful stand-up comedy routine?

In this eclectic view of the workings of the imagination; dr pollard has assembled a remarkable panel of writers, covering a wide of range of literature. The conversations, in this collection, are with writers of thrillers, satire and westerns, as well as stand-up comedy.

Alessandra Torre tells gripping tales she claims are erotica. Peter Mehlman, a pillar of Seinfeld, has an idiosyncratically ironic eye and smooth, easy writing style. Chris Allen trades in thrillers that may contain more than a hint of truth.

Bruce Holbert is the thriftiest of writers, building finely honed sentences. Victoria Patterson artfully skewers the upper class, of Orange County, California. Steve Berry creates intricate mysteries against a backdrop of notional history. J Scott Fuqua tells tales with words and illustrations that resurrect a bygone era.

Ann Lewis Hamilton writes serious stories in a shrewdly droll style. Gabe Abelson is the A-list writer of late-night television talk show monologues. Jay Bonansinga writes The Walking Dead novels.

What inspires these writers? How do they develop stories or comedy? Why must they write?

To a one, they agree writing is sweating blood that shows up as squiggles on a page or pixels on an e-reader. Writing fiction or stand-up comedy is not for the easily distracted, the indolent or faint of heart. Writers must be eager to chase their characters and stories down the rabbit hole.

Questionable Minds is notable because of the depth and clarity of the insights found in the conversations. The book exhibits a unique intimacy; there’s no sense of canned answers to a list of prepared questions. Instead these conversations move effortlessly, following lines of curiosity and interest, while drawing out a wealth of detail.

Every writer dr pollard talks with has a different story to tell. Each has his or her own sources of inspiration. Their routines are personal; sometimes fitting writing around the rest of their lives or, for a few, squeezing in time for family, if they can drag themselves away from writing.

It is notable how willingly, candid and freely the writers talk. They discuss in detail the motivations that drive them to write. For some it’s enthusiasm; others want to explore their own lives and, perhaps, reframe them in a different context; still others want to discover what happens to their characters, as the story unfolds and still others simply enjoy the act of writing. Questionable Minds is an inside view of some highly distinctive minds, which are absorbing places to explore.

Although dr pollard explores similar themes with each writer, the conversations never become repetitive. Each writer is too distinctive a personality; each brings something fresh to the conversations and our understanding of why writers write. If you wonder how writers do what they do, this book will show you that it’s much more complicated and enthralling than you may imagine; it will improve your reading experience, too.

Questionable Minds is available through Amazon, in paperback and eBook editions at https://www.amazon.com/Questionable-Minds-Conversations-george-pollard. Review copies, in MOBI format, are available from the author at drgeorgep@questionableminds.com. For more information on Questionable Minds, visit the web site http://questionableminds.com or e-mail, as you wish, perhaps to arrange an interview with dr pollard.

Vivier Chief Executive, Luigi Wewege Announces New Book: The Digital Banking Revolution

AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND and COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA and MADRID, SPAIN, 2016-Dec-21 — /EPR Network/ — Luigi Wewege’s latest book, The Digital Banking Revolution, shares his inside perspective on how financial technology companies are rapidly transforming the traditional retail banking industry through disruptive innovation.

In The Digital Banking Revolution, Wewege provides a look at how over the past decade financial service innovations have contributed to a completely new way in which customers are able to bank, threatening the status quo of traditional retail banks, and redefining a banking model which has been in place for generations.

Luigi’s book presents the ways these new technological advancements have facilitated the rapid emergence of digital banking firms and FinTech companies, leading to established banks being forced to swiftly increase their pace of digital adoption to stay relevant, and stop mass client attrition to these agile financial start-ups.

“These threats come at an inopportune time for banks due to mature markets currently experiencing stagnant growth. This coupled with decreasing profit margins due to the competitive pricing of new entrants, and financial customer loyalty becoming ever increasingly more tenuous,” said Wewege.

Supported by numerous illustrations, the book spans a diverse range of topics from big data analytics and mobile payments to the evolving behaviors of financial consumers. The Digital Banking Revolution concludes with Luigi providing his predictions in the book’s final chapter, which is titled The Future of Banking. In this chapter, he outlines how he believes financial services are likely to evolve, and be conducted going forward.

The book is currently available for purchase online at Amazon.com in Kindle and paperback versions, as well as being offered via a number of other major online booksellers.

True life short stories in Citizen One’s new book “Unexpected” launched on October 7th

petroleum-engineer-launched-book-of-short-stories_europawire

HOUSTON, 13-Oct-2016 — /EPR MEDIA NEWS/ — Fans of short stories with a sting in the tail, are in for an exiling treat with the Citizen One new book, Unexpected, launched on October 7th.

Written by P.F Citizen One, Unexpected is a collection of true life short stories inspired by the author’s travels around the world and the people he has met. The book features seven thought-provoking, humorous and engaging stories that end with the most unlikely twist.

In one of the stories, The Wedding Contract, the author tells the story of a man who was forced to sign a pre-nuptial agreement simply because his wife was wealthy and he was considered poor. As time went on, fortunes changed and the man became far wealthier than his wife. His wife and friends dreaded the worst from him because of his new financial position but what he did next was shocking.

Working as a Petroleum Engineer has enabled Citizen One to travel to many different countries. As a result, the stories feature characters from different cultures and nationalities – an element that adds excitement and variety to the stories.

When asked about his motivation to write the book, Citizen One explained: “I have learned a lot about life from listening and being kind to people, as well as from stories others have shared with me. I actively listen, and often feel like I’ve heard these stories many times before, until I realize that each story is unexpected and instructive. These experiences have inspired me to write. I wanted to write the type of stories that I would enjoy reading: true life stories. At first, you feel like you’ve heard these stories many times before, until you read the ending. This is true life—unexpected.

Love, injustice, friendship are central themes throughout the book. Each story is unique and helps readers to be aware that regardless of what is going on in their lives, at any given time, something unexpected (good or bad) could completely change their life.

Unexpected was endorsed by American Reader’s Favorite. The book was reviewed by Award Winning Author Emily-Jane Hills Orford on behalf of Readers’ Favourite and was awarded an overall 4 star rating. The rating was based on appearance plot, development, formatting and marketability.

Author Netanel Semrik re-launched best-selling book “Jonathan in the Kingdom of Mood Balloons” in English, Chinese, Arabic and Hebrew

Does your child has difficulties to manage their emotions?- “Jonathan in the Kingdom of Mood Balloons” has the answer!

Tel Aviv, Israel, October 1, 2015 — /EPR MEDIA NEWS/ — A new release of the best-selling emotional management book by Netanel Semrik. Find the book on Amazon in English, Arabic, Chinese and Hebrew: http://goo.gl/b1iaai

How many times a day are your children emotionally shaken?
How many times have you seen your child throwing a temper tantrum, frustrated, angry, screaming and shouting?

Everything you have tried doing – shouting, caressing, embracing, yelling, punishing – have only served to send them deeper into their emotional turmoil. Have you experienced your children being sad because they had a fight with a friend? They cry, their sadness threatening to engulf them completely and maybe engulf you a little too.

You are probably familiar with the situation in which your little loved ones are in the middle of a jealousy attack; irritating, snatching, pushing one of their siblings who got a gift or attention, exhibiting little to no self-control. Your children’s emotional mood takes over their entire world and it seems as if nothing can stop the emotional storm. Your children’s eruptive behavior is threatening to control you too. You often feel helpless. Now, please close your eyes and imagine your children are able to manage their emotions and thoughts. Imagine them doing it in an easy, simple and intuitive way. Imagine them feeling so comfortable with themselves that they have no problem sharing their feelings with you.

Is it a Dream?
Is it a reality?
Is it possible?

Yes!

They will be able to do it once you allow them to float off to the dreamy world of Mood Balloons. Mood Balloons? Yes. Mood Balloons. Mood and balloons. This is a Kingdom in which each thought and emotion is connected to the tops of our heads by a string: A Mood Balloon.

Every balloon has a unique color representing our mood at any given moment. The Mood Balloon expresses the mood and the color of the world our children are experiencing. Our emotional management tool is intended for children between the 3 -6 years old, the dream period of early childhood. During this period they will meet the very violent world of stimulation and screens which is all around us. The Mood Balloons allow the children to deal with this harsh world by means of little, charming childhood images. This happens with the help of a simple and friendly tool. The Children color their Mood Balloons with five easy steps, and as we, the parents would say, start managing their moods:

Observation: the children are asked to observe the colorful balloons. Every color symbolizes an emotion they experience and feel. (Pink – love, blue – sadness, orange -joy, and so on)

Point of view: the Mood Balloon’s color can mold the children’s perception of reality, causing them to experience and believe a story that is not a true story as if it was. The Mood Balloon’s color is the color through which the children perceive people and things in the world. Attention: We ask the children to pay attention to every emotional storm they experience, which calms them down before the mood takes over their world and colors their Mood Balloon.

Breathing: the children win the key to the kingdom of their personal emotions by breathing.

Success: children who have chosen the color of their Mood Balloon and stand behind their choice will not be emotionally shaken the next time a storm passes by. All over the world thousands of children reading and listening to this story are carried away by this magical and imaginary tale. It fortifies their ability to believe in themselves as the person in charge of their own moods.

The book invites you, the parents, to give your children tools which will enable them to conduct a different conversation with the world. A conversation existing in an indirect and colorful space, without clouding the delicate “I” which wakes up, develops and lands in this word in the years of early childhood. Apparently, there is another option to the limited conversation: “How was playschool today?” with the constant, vague answer: “Fun”. You can ask the children what Mood Balloon they met today. You wouldn’t believe the wealth of stories and experiences that will burst out of that conversation.

The Mood Balloon reality becomes an accessible, easy and simple emotional base through which the child’s experiences are easily accessed and converted.

Canton, Ohio, October 21, 2014 — /EPR MEDIA NEWS/ — From Fidelis O. Mkparu comes a moving debut romance, Love’s Affliction, the story of love across racial and cultural boundaries, when a young Nigerian premed student, Joseph Fafa, falls for Wendy Crane. Coming to North Carolina at seventeen to attend college, Joseph is forced to fight racial prejudice daily while pursuing his dream of becoming a doctor. He meets Wendy Crane, whose wealthy father opposes their relationship. It is said that young love rarely reaches its full potential, but Joseph and Wendy are determined to prove everyone wrong. Love’s Affliction captures the weakness and heartbreak of forbidden love. Will their romance endure the scrutiny of a racially-charged small college town?

As Ella EL-Kildani, M.Ed, Educator, Director of Genta Educational and Tutorial ser-vices puts it, Love’s Affliction reveals the “intense passion, ambition, and determination, between two college co-eds from opposite ethnic and social classes” and “the agonizing, yet thrilling journey into a late 70’s multicultural romance.”

Fidelis O. Mkparu is a Harvard-trained cardiologist whose background and experience form the basis of this fictional work. He lives in Canton, Ohio where he is a consultant cardiologist.

It is part of a growing African migrant literature produced in the United States and dealing with important themes such as student-life abroad, love, romance, and cross-racial or cross-cultural encounters. The writing is very alluring and compelling, revealing the sophisticated nature of a new type of African literature from the United States.”

NEW Award-Winning Children’s Book Combines “Gamification” with Important Life Lessons

The newly published book, ‘The Smart Playbook: Game-Changing Life Skills for a Modern World’ by Suzanne M. Wind, has become one of those “must have” resource for parents to keep around the house to help them impart to their kids the art of social graces.

Since its debut, the book is the proud recipient of seven awards including a Mom’s Choice Awards® Gold, Creative Child Magazine 2014 Book of The Year, The Toy Man® “Mom-Approved Comme Il Faut” Award, The Toy Man® eChoice Award, The Toy Man® Award of Excellence, The Toy Man® S.T.E.M Award, and The Mr. Dad Seal of Approval.

Aimed at teaching children confidence, integrity and empathy the book is chock-full of some awesome game-changing life skills that every child needs to know so as to truly understand the rules and know how to gracefully play the game of life in this modern world. Five of the SMART topics covered in the book, and designed to help children succeed, include:

• Social Skill Basics – The principles of modern manners
• Mealtime Manners – A guide to mealtime etiquette
• Art of Conversation – Face-to-face conversational skills
• Restaurant Behavior – The finer points of restaurant conduct
• Technology Talk – Internet safety and responsible usage

“The ‘gamification’ methods included in The SMART Playbook will help children ages 6-12 gain confidence, character, integrity and empathy in face-to-face situations and technology usage,” said Ms. Wind, a mom of three, who considers the book a “must have” for families.

As the creator of The SMART Playbook, Ms. Wind said the activity book uses a hands-on approach with more than 100 games and challenges to choose from. “The result: a happy and confident child thriving in a modern world,” assured Suzanne – a woman with an impossible mission to present families a simple and effective game plan to teach relevant life skills in a modern world.

Arguing that the world is changing faster than ever before has led Ms. Wind to believe parents and children are busier today than ever, and technology has and will continue to present new challenges they must face.

“But with all the texting, emailing, and posting, are children developing the social skills that will be required for lifelong happiness, confidence and success?” she questioned, but added, “That’s where The SMART Playbook comes into the picture. Parents and educators have called the book the perfect affordable solution to bring a little civility back to the 21st century.”

According to one reviewer, Suzanne has created a “fantastic, fun and interactive” book that’s right for both children and parents. She believes ‘The SMART Playbook is the perfect summer activity book, as it is designed to lead them in a collaborative effort to bring manners to a new generation.

The book is available as one complete book or by topic only. For more information, please visit www.thesmartplaybook.com. Also available for purchase at Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble online.

“Life Lessons for the Living: What the Dying Have Taught me”

If you’re over the age of 40, the odds are good that you’re either going to die of a terminal illness, or that you’re going to end-up caring for a family member or other loved one who will be diagnosed with one.

Here are the alarming facts:
• 1 in 5 will face a terminal illness due to some form of heart disease
• 1 in 7 will face a terminal illness due to some form of cancer
• 1 in 23 will face a terminal illness due to complications of a stroke

Most people truly are NOT prepared to take-on the responsibility of becoming a care giver to a family member or other loved one, much less face the fact that any one of us may be afflicted with a terminal illness.

When we are put in the care-giving position, we truly don’t know what to fully expect; what is considered normal or abnormal behavior as far as the bodily dying process is concerned, and basically, we truly don’t know what to do.

After all, we didn’t learn about any of this stuff in school.
Enlightened Monkey Publishing is pleased and proud to announce its latest book by author Bob McDowell, BCETS, (who is a near death experience survivor, noted thanatology expert and end-of-life counselor), titled, “Life Lessons for the Living: What the Dying Have Taught me.”

In this short digital book of approximately 29-pages which is available exclusively through Amazon-Kindle, the author educates readers about hospice and its many unique benefits, and then goes on to detail what might be considered “normal” in the bodily dying process while pointing out things that we specifically should and should not do in our position as a care giver, which are of great importance.

The author also relates what hundreds of hospice patients have shared with him over the years as far as their deepest regrets and the most common fears which have been expressed to him.

Some readers of this digital book may cause some to re-evaluate the priorities they’ve set for themselves which currently govern their daily lives.

To preview and order this highly enlightening Kindle book TODAY for the small investment of only $2.99, click HERE.

“Answers about Life: Answers to Life’s Many Mysteries Revealed” is without reservation, the most valuable resource in the world when it comes to revealing the spiritual truths and knowledge that we all claim to be seeking, and it provides answers to all of the above-mentioned questions and concerns, plus many more.

It also answers the questions you didn’t realize that you had until you discover the answers to them.

In 1981, author Bob McDowell survived a full-blown near death “transcendent” experience, meaning that his experience went above and well-beyond that of a typical near death experience, in that he was provided with spiritual knowledge and truths which are not typically obtained by the millions of others who have had a near death experience.

This is evidenced by the spiritual lessons which he learned and brought back with him to share with others.

If you’ve read other books written by NDE survivors, you’ll quickly realize how the content contained within the pages of this book separates itself from all other NDE books on the market today, as it goes where no other book has gone before.

It took him many years to even talk about this experience with his closest friends and over 30 years to initially write about it because it was so shockingly profound, as it went against nearly everything that he had been brought-up to believe was true from his Protestant (Disciples of Christ) religious upbringing.

What makes “Answers about Life: Answers to Life’s Many Mysteries Revealed” so credible and separates it from all of the other books in this genre, is that it was written without any hidden agendas or prejudices whatsoever. McDowell is not a minister, pastor, Bishop, Elder, Priest or Rabbi.

He is not a psychic medium; he doesn’t talk to dead people and doesn’t profess to have any special powers, or even all of the answers. He has absolutely nothing to promote, other than the need for a more spiritual life.

Since his paranormal experience in 1981, he no longer affiliates himself with any earthly religion, and he has no desire whatsoever to promote himself or what he learned by engaging in radio or television interviews, as he’s not interested in fame, fortune, or becoming a household name.

He simply sees himself as a messenger-of-sorts, and in numerous instances throughout this book, he actually encourages his readers to form their own opinions based on the facts and (sometimes simple logic) which he presents.

This book is about complete honesty and integrity, and it manifests itself throughout the book.

“Answers about Life: Answers to Life’s Many Mysteries Revealed” is written in an easy-to-read conversational style and with a respectful tone as well. It stimulates the mind and gives readers a lot of food-for-thought.

Readers of this book will walk away with a completely different view of the world, the people around them, and themselves as well. They should also prepare themselves for a journey of spiritual growth, enlightenment and empowerment.

Female Clergy… Still A Controversy?

It would be hard to find a topic in the Christian sector that has drawn more controversy than the ordination of women in ministry. In her new book My Shade of Lipstick is Red (SOV Books), ordained minister, Joanne Williams, gives a candid and uncomfortable account of what it’s still like for 21st century women experiencing ‘the call’ — and the predictable backlash inside the denominational church system.

My Shade of Lipstick is Red book is a must-read for clergy women who have been pushed aside, put down and or pushed back into the ‘church kitchen’ when, in fact, they have just as much to say, teach and mentor as their male contemporaries; if not more, since the female perspective is well-known to be considerably more introspective and, in many cases, dare we say … more devoted?

In My Shade of Lipstick Williams covers first-hand many controversial topics, such as a glossary of her own, fledgling mistakes and the deliberate roadblocks set up against her by, both men and women, in the church system. The result is a treasure-trove of sound advice, coupled with solid teachings on understanding and developing one’s calling. Williams backs up her advice with us an authoritative catalog of instructions on what it takes to maximize one’s call to ministry and pave the way for the next army of female ministers.

Today, Minister Joanne Williams is the founder and president of Grace on Display Outreach Ministries, Los Angeles, California. She also serves as the director of Prison Ministries at her local church and is a member of Alliance of Clergy Women, which enhances the moral, social, educational, and spiritual development of women called into ministry.

Dave Skogen, chairman of Festival Foods, authors new book on business leadership

The publication of Boomerang! Leadership Principles That Bring the Customer Back has been announced by 9th Street Publishing of Green Bay. The book is written by Dave Skogen, chairman of the board of Skogen’s Festival Foods and a native of Onalaska, Wis.

In Boomerang!, Skogen provides insights and lessons based on his experiences over a period of nearly six decades in leading Festival Foods’ transformation from a single 3,000-square-foot grocery store into a regional supermarket chain. The book’s underlying idea is “the boomerang theory,” the fundamental principle that extraordinary hospitality rather than ordinary customer service brings people back and that organizations that go the extra mile can inspire customers to go the extra mile for them.

Prior to taking on the role of chairman at Festival Foods, Skogen served as CEO and president of the company for more than 30 years. He has also served in leadership roles with numerous community organizations as well as industry organizations including the Food Marketing Institute. He received an honorary degree from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse in 2012.

Festival Foods is a family and employee-owned company that was originally founded as Skogen’s IGA by Skogen’s father and mother in 1946 in Onalaska. Today the company operates 18 stores across Wisconsin and has more than 5,000 employees.

9th Street Publishing is a publisher of inspirational books and is co-owned by Joe and Danica Kiedinger. More information is available at www.9thstreetpublishing.com

NAACP Poet Releases New Book of Poetry: Whispers in the Reign…And writes one for Trayvon!

NAACP poet, Lisa J. Smallwood, of the Orange County, California, chapter, has released a book of poetry entitled Whispers in the ReignThe book is dedicated to her sister, Letitia Denise Smallwood, who has been unjustly incarcerated, for the past forty-one years.

In 1973, Letitia Smallwood, now age sixty, was convicted of arson and double homicide. Her case is currently being reviewed by the Pennsylvania Innocence Project. According to forensic expert, Dr. Gerald Hurst, Letitia Smallwood could not have committed the murders. See his white paper at: http://truthinjustice.org/smallwood.htm

The works of her sister, poet Lisa J. Smallwood, stem from an accumulation of personal pain as a result of her family’s decades-long struggle to prove Letitia’s innocence.

In the meantime, Lisa J. Smallwood has everyone talking. First to take notice was the NAACP, Orange County Chapter, followed by the 2013 Los Angeles Million Women March.Smallwood’s collection of poetry is unabashed, deeply introspective and articulate. Drawn from real-life experience, she has the rare ability to take us on a journey of splendid persuasions, ranging from the quiet moments in her garden to the soul’s deepest contemplation of despair. Her epic Abuse 101 sounds the alarm for female empowerment, while her well-known Sisters My Sisters complete her rise to poetic stardom. With ghostly images that transcend each page, her recent piece Why, Travyon, Why? reflects today’s undercurrent of outrage after the Zimmerman verdict. Why Trayvon Why? is of course, raw and superb!

Elaine Feuer’s To Gently Leave This Life: The Right To Die

Physician-assisted death is legal in four states in the U.S. and in three countries in Europe. In 2012, two court cases involving assisted death have set the stage for new international precedents regarding euthanasia legislation worldwide. In Canada, Gloria Taylor, who suffered from Lou Gehrig’s disease, was granted the right to die by British Columbia’s Supreme Court. Canada’s federal government is appealing the decision. In Britain, “locked-in” patient Tony Nicklinson pleaded his case to Britain’s High Court but was denied the right to die despite the tortured nightmare that was his existence. For people who are suffering from a terminal or incurable illness, the option of a peaceful passing is the issue at the forefront of modern society. Assessing the quality of life, and allowing patients who suffer from debilitating pain and dependence on others to gently leave this life, gives people a dignified alternative. Read To Gently Leave This Life to learn what you need to know about end-of-life decisions.

Elaine Feuer’s critically acclaimed exposé, Innocent Casualties: The FDA’s War Against Humanity, is now available with 2012 Updates at

Robert J. Moore Presents My Journey Through Addictions To Salvation: A New Beginning

May 11, 2013: Robert J. Moore is proud to announce the official publication of My Journey Through Addictions To Salvation: A New Beginning, his revealing, eye-opening new memoir.

About The Book
I was entrenched in alcohol and drugs for a long period of time. I was lost and adrift, with no future. When God helped me find my way and turned me to recovery in 2005, doors opened that I could not have imagined.

Volunteering at numerous places such as the Orillia Youth Centre, Telecare distress phone line, and Bethel Baptist Church, allowed me to receive the Lieutenant Governor’s Community Volunteer Award for Students and be nominated for both the “Order of Orillia Award” and Orillia Citizen of the Year 2012.

In 2006, I returned to school to get my high school diploma and now have diplomas in Addictions and Social Service Worker. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts and Science Degree in Psychology at Lakehead University. Today, I am a motivational speaker and plan to use my experience and my Christian faith to empower troubled youth. Nothing is impossible, and dreams can come true!

For an enticing preview of My Journey Through Addictions To Salvation, visit Moore’s official website to view its compelling book trailer: http://robertsjourney.ca

My Journey Through Addictions To Salvation is available as a digital download from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other retailers. The book is also available in paperback format ($17.95, ISBN: 9781483957531, 156 pp). For more information, please visit http://robertsjourney.ca

About The Author
Robert Moore was totally destitute. Homeless and alone, he had alienated his friends and family with his drug and alcohol addiction, and had nowhere to turn. He thought his journey was over, and his path was at a dead end. Then, a miracle happened…

Robert Moore has done what historically very few people have been able to do: come back from a long history of drug and alcohol addiction, a life with no purpose, no education and no hope, to a place of hope, completing an education, and accomplishing goals at a breakneck speed. All while at the same time writing his autobiography and doing motivational speaking, to help others who are also on this long and difficult path.

This is the story of a man who was once driven by demons and is now driven by hope, courage and the desire for a better life. Robert was able to reach out to God and the church for help to get past those demons, and take the right path towards salvation and his true life path.

My Journey Through Addiction to Salvation: A New Beginning tells Robert’s story, from his youth to where he is today. Whether you are someone who is somewhere on this journey yourself, someone helping others, or a passerby, you need to read this inspiring story and be inspired yourself by Robert’s journey.

Robert is also available for motivational speaking, and has been interviewed on Inspirational Transformational TV Show, Rogers TV (Catching up with Kelly), and Rogers TV (Barrie Daytime).

My Journey Through Addiction to Salvation: A New Beginning is available through Robert’s website at www.robertsjourney.ca and online through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Chapters Indigo.
