Sitting Shiva in the Land of Nod by Dennis Casidy is on its way.

But we're breathing life into him.


3 weeks.


Stay tuned. Smiley Happy


"Since my miscarriage, I've learned how important it is to put my faith in God, not run from it.  With my miscarriage I had put all the blame on Him, depressed myself over the 'what-if's' and the 'I guess I'm not good enough's' and really lost out on the comfort of any hope because I shut myself off.  I became so angry at God that I lost contact with Him.  I no longer prayed or read the bible.  I still attended church, but hardly participated.  My husband and I even flew off to Italy just to get away from life at home.  I had rather have been on a different continent than celebrate my mother-in-law's birthday, which just so happened to land on the same date that my baby was supposed to be due.

It wasn't until a service at church one Sunday when our pastor called anyone up who needed to leave something in the past and move forward, that I made an effort to bring an end to this grief-filled chapter in my life.  It was about eight months after the miscarriage that this service occurred, and it brought the release that I needed." - Hope Filled




This book was created to bring hope after losing a baby.  If you, or someone you know has experienced this loss and have been struggling with finding acceptance or hope, this book will bring the encouragement that you/they need!  You will read and experience my own personal journey of losing two babies, and how I found hope through it all. 

Check it out!

Mare Barrow is a Red living with her parents and a younger sister, Gisa; her three older brothers, Bree, Tramy, and Shade, serve in the front line of a war fought between the northern Kingdom of Lakeland and the Barrow's homeland, the Kingdom of Norta, currently ruled by King Tiberius Calore VI, a Silver with supernatural powers that allow him and the rest of the Silvers, who also have supernatural powers, to rule over the more numerous Reds. Mare is jealous of her sister because of her beauty, the love of her parents and because she has a job which means no conscription. When she learns that her best friend, Kilorn Warren, will be conscripted, she plans an escape and meets with a colleague who directs her to Farley, a captain of the Scarlet Guard, insurgents composed of Reds who want to bring equality between their people and the Silvers. Farley demands a sum of money in exchange for Kilorn's escape.

Untitled Verses

by Pung_Sunil on ‎01-26-2017 05:05 (38 Views)

It's a pure joy to be able to connect to you with words, weaved into stories and poems that move you to be happy, sad and at times to make you think of life in a slightly different colour.

That joy is unparalleled.

Life in all its complication and all its simplicity, and all that is fantasy and reality.

There is a thrill in simply exploring the nuances of life.
It is an intensely satisfying feeling to draw threads and weave a plot and to keep the reader enthralled.

At the end of the day,
The faint stir of emotion in you as you read my works is what keeps me going.

A short compilation of my works comes to you as a part of "Untitled Verses".

Are you ready to be a part of this journey of emotions...





The Carver Settlement

by tgaddo ‎01-25-2017 04:07 - edited ‎01-25-2017 04:11 (31 Views)

The Carver Settlement

TCS Cover Fin 5.jpg


It takes U.S. Marine John Carver three years to heal from injuries suffered in the Marine barracks bombing in Beirut, 1983. He spends the next two decades hopping from one global hot spot to the next, setting up high-tech communication and logistics devices in support of important US military operations. In Iraq, in 2004, a tragic misstep strips him of rank and sends him to prison for 11 years.


Wally Grimmich talks himself into the role as top advisor to the long-shot presidential candidate, where he learns of Carver’s involvement in the lawsuit against Iran, and his own uncanny resemblance to Carver. When his candidate begins rising in the polls, Grimmich hatches a plan to take Carver's place and abscond with the loot.


Released in 2016, Carver is planning to live out his days in Mexico. Instead, Grimmich manipulates him into remaining in the US. The two men meet on the old Carver farm in Wisconsin, where they encounter an evil from Carver's past, a perceptive dog named Lucky, and a barn with a past of its own.

Freedom Writing Therapy Book

by suzannestrong ‎01-22-2017 01:48 - edited ‎01-22-2017 02:52 (90 Views)

Hi, this handbook I have written details what writing therapy is about, the benefits people can gain from accessing things we have held under the surface. There is stress, memories and many stored painful areas of our lives. Writing Therapy can and does release us from these things held within our unconscious. I have included my techniques and my personal story as well as the impressions of other people about my writing therapy workshops. Download a copy and follow the writing therapy workshop - Chapters of 9-11. I know you will experience freedom from any stress or trauma you may not even be aware of. 

At the end of the workshop there are poetry exercises and this is a very positive exercise that most people love to do even if they don't know how to write poetry.  Kind regards, Suzanne

How Stock Investors Can Evaluate Portfolio Performance_Cover (Front).jpeg

Harry Markowitz (1952) developed a theory for portfolio selection that helped investors after the Great Depression by suggesting that they spread their stock holdings over several companies and industries. In 1990, he and two others won the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences for their theory. It is the primary objective of this book, therefore, to delve into how institutional and individual stock investors can evaluate portfolio performance through a typical assessment of the endowment fund of the University of Ibadan, Nigeria’s premier university, as an institutional investor, over an evaluation period of five years, relative to a benchmark portfolio. The book begins with an introduction in chapter one. Chapter two reviews the modern portfolio theory. Chapter three reveals the techniques for evaluating portfolio performance while chapter four discusses about endowment funds in general. Chapter five presents the results of the application of the evaluation techniques. Chapter six is the summary.   Buy Now

Throughout the pages of my Articles of Amendum and of my many addresses can be found the solutions to our problems as a nation. And whilst perfection may not ever truly be obtainable, it is something I have done my very best to achieve in this work.
