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.

New Book: Grace of the Cast off Cross – The Decision is Always Ours

In March of 1942 7,000 American, British, and Dutch Japanese POWs on the island of Java were ordered into camps. Dolf Unger, a Corporal in the Dutch Royal Army was one of these soldiers. Newly married with an infant daughter Dolf was not to see his wife and daughter for over three years. This book is a compilation of articles, letters, and mementoes documenting his camp experiences. Dolf’s story is not just one of survival, but of spiritual transformation.

For Dolf this transformation began one cold fall day when he was forced to shovel scrap metal. In a moment of utter despair; as he cried out silently to God, he kicked a pile of scrap metal. God’s answer came in the form of a perfectly shaped four-inch iron cross, which landed on his boot. Dolf soon became involved in a Christian community in the camp called “The Church Under The Cross”. The spiritual growth and transformation of this community of sick, starving, and often beaten men offers a greater context to Dolf’s own spiritual Journey.

That Dolf’s witness and that of “The Church Under The Cross” speaks so unerringly to the church and culture of our own time hints that God’s providential hand is at work here. It witnesses to the many churches to mired in outdated tradition, and legalistic doctrine to the meet the challenges of a cynical materialistic culture. It also offers a powerful witness to the individual Christian that we can experience the saving, and liberating love of Christ even when our external circumstances seem hopeless.

How to Order:

E-Book Kindle Edition just released for $3.99 on amazon.com

Book Price is $16.95 and may be ordered by sending a check to the church – St. John’s United Church of Christ, 8065 William Penn Highway, Easton, PA 18045-2938. Shipping is included – no extra shipping charge.

New Book Pleads For Grandma to Stop Driving in the Left Lane

In Tyrone Short’s newest book ‘Lord Why is Grandma Driving in the Left Lane?’ he expresses his views on one of America’s leading problems, ‘Grandma’ and the many foolish drivers that congest the left lane of our roads and highways.

Tyrone Short announces ‘Lord Why is Grandma Driving in the Left Lane?’ in conjunction with Lulu (www.Lulu), the world’s fastest-growing provider of print-on demand books.

In his own words, “It is bad enough to have to deal with the volume of traffic during rush hour, but to have to deal with grandma and the many foolish drivers that flock and linger in the passing lane is despicable. It is amazing that our roads have not become one big battlefield.”

In his collective thoughts, Tyrone Short takes an introspective and risky stance at what may be considered a controversial topic for a Christian writer. Nevertheless, this thought provoking book is well-timed for what is going on in the nation today and it has the capability to transform many to a healthier and more productive outlook in regards to this issue.

Lord Why is Grandma Driving in the Left Lane is available for purchase at www.Lulu.com/PrinceTrog.

London Book Festival Chooses Unlikely Grand Prize Winner from USA

The London Book Festival chose an unlikely book for its 2009 Grand Prize Award, Stan Goldberg’s memoir, LESSONS FOR THE LIVING: STORIES OF FORGIVENESS, GRATITUDE AND COURAGE AT THE END OF LIFE (Shambhala Publications-Trumpeter imprint). What made it unlikely is that it focuses on end-of-life issues while most other entries dealt with lighter more entertaining topics. Why was it chosen? The judges said they were “overwhelmed” by the impact the book had on them. Their views mirrored those of one reviewer who wrote that the book “will change the way you live the rest of your life.”

When Stan Goldberg was diagnosed with cancer, he chose to face his fear by helping others who were already in the process of dying: Stan signed up as a hospice volunteer and spent seven years at the bedsides of the terminally ill. In this book, Stan shares the remarkable stories of people he met who were facing the end of life. Their stories shine a light on the human capacity for beauty, insight, forgiveness, and gratitude, as we see how people like us deal with anxiety and sadness with bravery and love.

But what’s especially remarkable is that the bravery and love aren’t as much expressed in grand, dramatic gestures as they are in ordinary acts and small accomplishments: in simple efforts at kindness, in asking for and receiving forgiveness, in the abandonment of anger, and in learning to speak directly from the heart-and to listen in the same way. What Stan ultimately discovers-and shares here-are not lessons in dying, but rather, lessons in learning how to live.

LESSONS FOR THE LIVING became the basis for Stan’s highly acclaimed video series HELPING LOVED ONES TO DIE, which besides being lauded by people preparing to help their loved ones die, is being used in conjunction with his book by hospice training programs around the world.

He will accept the 2009 London Book Festival Grand Prize Award at a gala dinner event in London on January 21.

Book Tells The Tales Of Discarded Dogs Who Become Helping Heros

In her newly published book, New Lives: Stories of Rescued Dogs Helping, Healing and Giving Hope, Joanne Wannan tells the stories of abused, abandoned and discarded dogs who are now playing the roles of heroes in animal therapy, and as service dogs. From a Dalmatian who was scheduled to be euthanized to one of Michael Vick’s fighting bit pulls, the dogs in Wannan’s book have overcome tremendous obstacles, yet have gone on to work with humans, creating NEW LIVES for them both.

Lottie Dot was instead abandoned by her breeder in the middle of a ferocious Oklahoma winter storm. The little pup was rescued by her son, and Patricia Belt quickly claimed Lottie Dot as her own. When it was discovered that Lottie was deaf, Patricia taught her dog sign language and enrolled her in classes to become a “therapy dog.” Today Lottie volunteers at hospitals, gives demonstrations at a school for deaf children, and participates in a reading program, which promotes literacy by having children read aloud to a dog. “Lottie can’t hear these precious kids read a single word,” Patricia says. “She listens in a different way; with her heart.”

As a part of Michael Vick’s dogfight operation, Dr. Leo, as he is now affectionately called, was doomed. When authorities stepped in, they disbanded the operation and ordered that each pit bull be evaluated and placed with rescue organizations if possible. Dr. Leo was found to be non-aggressive, but filled with anxiety and lacking in socialization skills. “It’s not that he wasn’t friendly; he just didn’t understand about love, or what he was here for,” his new owner Marthina McClay comments. Dr. Leo is now w wonderful “therapy” dog, visiting patients in a chemotherapy ward, and acting as an ambassador for abused dogs everywhere when he visits a juvenile detention home.

Dropped from a four story building ,and landing on his backside, Dobie, a tiny black Labrador retriever puppy, was left for dead. Thanks to the love of Richard Bartel anddonations of over $90,000 to the University of Minnesota Foundation, Dobie is now alive, well and an active participant in Therapy Dogs International that provides well-trained dogs who visit hospitals, schools and senior homes.

Wannan’s stories are filled with the reality of animal abuse, but also with love, hope and information on the many organizations around the world that help with rescue, housing and adoption of discarded dogs. As Wannan puts it, “These are truly inspiring stories of dogs that were once ‘throwaways,’ and of the lives they have changed.”

Dr. Marty Becker, the resident veterinarian on Good Morning America says, “This book will appeal to animal lovers of all ages, to those interested in learning about animal therapy and to those who advocate for shelter dogs. But mostly, it will appeal to anyone who loves a heart-warming story, where the underdog triumphs in the end.”

Your Family Constitution: A Modern Approach To Family Values & Household Structure Is A Back-To-School Must Read

Amidst the flurry of back-to-school activities, families brace for a return to discipline and order, signaling the end of summer. As parents adjust to their new fall routines, scores of competing obligations and responsibilities highlight the difficulty of raising well-grounded kids with good core values. Combine this perpetual struggle with the effects of technological distractions, societal lack of discipline, and communication breakdowns, and it is not hard to understand why so many parents throw up their hands in defeat and accept mere survival.

“For many families, the stark contrast of transitioning from a lazy summer to a hectic school year is often met with resistance,” said Scott Gale, author of Your Family Constitution. “But folks at their wits end needn’t revert to survival parenting. Instead, they can initiate a series of steps designed to help families let go of chaos, establish healthier boundaries and achieve a more harmonious family life.”

Author Scott Gale, who refused to settle for survival, has designed a powerful tool that allowed him to alleviate family challenges through the thoughtful application of clarity, consistency and commitment (the “3Cs”). Your Family Constitution tells his story and provides a step-by-step process that parents can follow to improve family communication, reduce household tension, and improve the time family members spend together.

Our Family Constitution guides readers through a personalized journey of introspection, visioning, household observation, prioritization, and ultimately the creation of manageable boundaries coupled with consistent rewards and consequences. The product of their labor is a Family Constitution – a clear and consistent set of rules customized to the needs and circumstances of their household.

About Your Family Constitution
Your Family Constitution is a common-sense playbook to reaching family harmony. The principles and tools developed by author Scott Gale to improve his own family relationships, can be applied by today’s parents who routinely juggle “bowling balls” (the weighty needs of career, family, marriage and themselves). Your Family Constitution provides a fun, healthy model for family structure, togetherness and growth, which enables families to create more quality time by minimizing destructive behaviors. Stop listening to well-intentioned parenting advice and reading countless family help books and create Your (own) Family Constitution today.

Powerful Secret to Reduce Debt – Learn How to Sell Anything Fast

Struggling to get out from under a pile of debt, like many Americans? People in financial trouble often try to make more money or cut their expenses, but they neglect a simple, effective strategy. How to sell anything you don’t need to help reduce debt.

So says author James B. Savage, who wrote the book Sell It Fast: How to sell almost anything with effective low-cost classified ads. “You can sell anything around the house to reduce debt quickly and easily in newspaper classified ads,” he says. “But you need to know how and where to advertise.”

Savage teaches consumers how to price items correctly and place them in online and in-print classified ads, many of which are free or inexpensive.

Many people fail at selling items in classifieds because they don’t know techniques he has mastered over 15 years. Or they avoid trying to sell their old stuff entirely because they believe it is expensive, difficult or a hassle.

Great sell-anything-fast items include cars, motorcycles, kitchen appliances, furniture, lawn mowers, electronics, televisions, cell phones, electronic games and tools or anything that has value, according to Savage.

He advises people to reduce debt by selling items which they are paying off monthly. This only works “as long as you do not owe more than the item is worth,” he cautions.

Sell It Fast tells you:

• How to find the right buyer
• Where to advertise free or at little cost
• The tricks to make your ad better than others
• How to save money advertising
• Why you shouldn’t trade in your car because you can sell it yourself for its real value
• Profit-making tips to sell hobby items and collectibles
• 2 must-do things to make your ad work
• The No. 1 secret to get the best price
• Ways to cut or stop unnecessary responses
• How to prevent getting ripped off by thieves
• And much, much more.

In addition, Savage’s book helps you write the perfect classified quickly with its ad forms. They helped him sell a $5,500 lawn mower in the middle of winter and without any selling expenses.

Sell It Fast – the only tool you’ll need to sell anything and reduce debt – is available at amazon.com or at http://sellanythingfast.com.

Rain Dance – A Novel That Examines The Volatile Issues Of Abortion And Infertility

Sheaf House Publishers announces the August, 2009 release of Rain Dance by author Joy DeKok.

Rain Dance delves into the often silent battles and surprising hypocrisies found in the lives of women facing these two personal crisis.

Publisher and editorial director Joan Shoup contracted Rain Dance because it fits the editorial guidelines and the commitment of Sheaf House to publish novels written with excellence, that are unafraid to dive deep into the heart of sometimes “untouchable” topics, and offer a powerful redemptive message for readers.

“Rain Dance is the perfect fit for Sheaf House,” Shoup says. “The author has written a beautiful story her test readers and reviewers love. She didn’t shy away from the difficult and refused to end the novel with ‘happily ever after.’”

Author Joy DeKok comments, “I’m dedicated to writing with integrity – my faith demands it and the story, which is both plot and character driven, required it. I didn’t choose this topic. It chose me one day while I was cleaning the house. I told God I thought it was a great idea and I hoped He’d find an author for it. Although I argued with Him for almost a year, I realized, He already had His author. Me.”

Rain Dance joins the impressive Sheaf House line up August of 2009.

Endorser Sue Liljenberg, International Director, of Healing Hearts Ministries says, “This book is a must read for all women. Although it is a fictional story the author has brilliantly captured the many issues that women struggle with and offers hope that can only be found in Jesus. She also shows how looking beyond our own circumstances can bring blessings into our lives and the lives of others. I’ve ministered to broken women for over twenty years and I’m thankful for resources like Rain Dance that will reach women who are hurting and give them hope.”

New Book Examines Importance of Worship

Worship in Spirit and in Truth

“People are increasingly searching for truth and are disillusioned as the current global economic crisis takes its toll and shocking social decay moves closer,” writes Bode Ososami in his new book, Worship in Spirit and in Truth (published by AuthorHouse). “At the heart of these questions is the question of worship: Are we really on the right track? Are we doing the right things, believing the right things? What could have gone wrong and when?” Readers seeking answers to these questions will find some food for thought in this comprehensive new book.

Thoroughly researched using knowledge gleaned from the teachings, literature and knowledge of many elders, Worship in Spirit and Truth focuses on understanding worship and related issues. Ososami intends for it to be a wake-up call: “Be watchful and aware of the wiles of the kingdom of darkness to steal, kill and destroy the destiny of dominion and overcoming power belonging to the true saints,” he warns.

Written in five parts, the first four sections of Worship in Spirit and in Truth primarily provide teachings to reestablish the biblical meaning of worship. Topics include who and what to worship, important themes in heavenly worship, expressions of heavenly worship and how to gain a breakthrough in worship.

The last section delves into more recent trends affecting worship styles. Ososami examines how modern entertainment, particularly music, has played a role in subtly changing worship styles. He points to these changes as playing a major role in deviations from “divine patterns and God-given doctrines, resulting in a people prepared not for God but to please humanity.” The metaphor of the Trojan Horse is used to illustrate his point.

Thought-provoking and informative, Worship in Spirit and in Truth will appeal to readers confused about the best way to worship and anyone seeking a broader understanding of its process and history.

After 20 Years Of Research, And Years Trying Without Giving Up, Brazilian Writer Lands In A Big Publishing House In Germany

Brazilian Historian Fabio R. Araujo did not give up. He knew he wouldn’t have much success publishing in his country and he believed that he should try a rich country to publish his book, after spending more than 20 years in his research, he landed in Kopp Verlag, a major German house that publishes well-known writers such as Donald Trump, Robert Kyosaki, Rhonda Byrne (The Secret), Deepak Chopra, Eric Von Däkinen, Robert Bauval, G. Hancock, Adrian Gilbert, Kurt Allgeier, Zecharia Stichin, Leo DeGard, Andy Lloyd, Thimothy Good, Michael Cremo and Richard Thompson etc.

Although he also managed to be published in the USA in IAP Publishing, LLC, the German house is one among the largest publishing houses dealing with subjects seen by some as heretical subjects, hidden archaeology, hidden truths etc. His book was translated from English into German by German writer L. Degard, who has 2 books published in Germany.

“This is a long-waited dream being fulfilled!”

Currently the book rights are being handled by some of the most important agents and agencies in the globe to be sold for publication in other countries. Asked why he did not try to be published in a good publishing house in Brazil, he replied:

“Brazilians don’t like reading. Unfortunatelly, they don’t buy books.”

According to him, the current crisis and global warming are found in predictions made tens or hundreds of years ago. And after a huge global catastrophe, a new age and a new system different from capitalism will come. More than a book about prophecies, the author tries to connect past myths from different civilizations and religions to prophecies about the future, saying for example, that the biblical creation and other myths from the primordial waters were periodic catastrophes connected to past global temperature change that happened before a huge flood. According to his study, a future global flood should happen after global warming, in about 20 years.

The author began his study when he had a premonition about 20 years ago which became part of his life a few months later. After researching more than five hundreds of books in many countries, he hopes now to land in other large publishing houses in Europe.

The Go-Giver: A Little Story About a Powerful Business Idea

What happens when you give video cameras, a world changing book, and a 1200-mile road trip to four out of the box entrepreneurs? They don’t know what it looks like either but with all of these forces aligning, it will be one monumental adventure. Through the power of Social Media, four visionary entrepreneurs have been connected to Bob Burg, the co-author of their favorite book, The Go-Giver. The Go-Giver, the internationally best-selling book co-authored by John David Mann is finding a new audience. These four entrepreneurs represent only a fraction of the millions of people already positively influenced with the message and principals in this book and its principles.

What started out a simple van ride has turned into a national tour – The Go-Giver Tour (http://www.gogivertour.com). The tour now has national supporters and stops in St. Louis, Nashville, Atlanta from April 22-23, 2009. They will meet followers of the book, the entrepreneurs and momentum built through sites like Twitter and Facebook. Finally landing in Orlando at the Extreme Business Makeovers Conference April 24-26, 2009.

The four have extended their efforts to support emerging leaders and young entrepreneurs by holding a video-based interview contest and are bringing five diverse individuals along for the ride. These young entrepreneurs represent cultural diversity and diverse business experience in varying development stages. The goal is to create winning plans to help build brand and business skills, develop authentic leadership skills and learn the true principle of adding value for themselves, their stakeholders, and their customer.

Supported by the Nextvoice247 Initiative (www.nextvoice247.com) Founder, Gilbert Melott states, “This started out as a connection between a social media rock star and an author. It has ended up connecting untold numbers of people around a single belief. It will be great to see these young entrepreneurs be supported by the 100,000’s of people who will come to get to know their stories.”

New Picture Book Helps Children Understand How To Reach And Communicate With God

Life can sometimes be painful and lonely for adults, but even more so for children. Many unavoidable, hurtful circumstances can break a child’s spirit and leave a lot of emotional scars. The lessons, however, that await readers in Keoni’s Big Question, an endearing new picture book authored by Patti B. Ogden, teaches children how to reach out and communicate with God in times of need. It gives parents inspiration, encouragement and a gentle way to show their children that God is not as distant as He seems.

Keoni’s Big Question, a new release from Capstone Productions, follows the emotions of a little boy who is very curious about God. He has a question, a really big question that no one seems to be able to answer to his satisfaction. This gripping tale follows Keoni (“Key-Oh-Knee” is Hawaiian for John) and a family friend on a fishing trip that turns dangerous, then miraculous. How does Keoni get his question answered? The surprise ending catches readers off guard. Read the book to find out.

Keoni’s Big Question is essentially a sharing tool especially written for family reading time. The book’s touching ending has even caused families to shed a tear because suddenly they realize that God is not as distant as we think He is and children are relieved to get answers to questions they cannot verbalize. It brings to readers an in-depth look at the love of Jesus Christ through a child’s eyes.

A mother and grandmother herself, Ogden says she has watched children experience times of hopelessness and helplessness, with a great need of comfort beyond what a parent or relative can give. The intent of the book, she says, “is to teach, encourage and inspire children to call God on the scene in times of trouble, and to understand that His presence is near in everyday life.” Profits from the book help fund Capstone’s missionary endeavors, sending Bibles to the needy overseas.
