Book Blast: The Apocalypse Revisited by Dr. Reginald O. Crosley - Win a $25 Gift Card

Title: The Apocalypse Revisited
Author: Dr. Reginald O. Crosley
Publisher: XLibris
Genre: Poetry
Format: Ebook

After two thousand years of history in which we have faithfully expected the Second Coming of Christ, we have met with recurrent disappointments. Why is that? At the beginning of the end of the ages that is the first century of the Christian era, the apostles and the early Christians were living with the expectation of an imminent return of Christ. Jesus himself was expecting a quick return, but the Father had a different planning. At the end of the first century, the Father revealed to John the content of a scroll with Seven Seals. That scroll outlined the main events that will occur in every century of the Christian era. A thorough review of the manifestations of the Seven Seals in every century is exposed in my book. We also call attention to God’s judgments upon the whole creation in the visible and the invisible worlds. The Apocalypse Revisited introduces us to two realms of reality . It is written to make the symbols , the visions, the personalities and the time-table of historic events accessible to the readers. We should no longer establish dates for events that are kept secret by the Creator . Also some events described in the Apocalypse are already occurring in history. The very end of the cosmos and the earth is not around the corner. It is in the future probably after a thousand year following Armageddon.

Book Feature: Infertility Caused by Decreased Oxygen Utilization and Jinn (Demon) by Dr. Mira Bajirova

Book shares insights on ‘Infertility Caused by Decreased
Oxygen Utilization and Jinn (Demon)’
Dr. Mira Bajirova’s debut publication joins virtual blog tour
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – “Infertility Caused by Decreased Oxygen Utilization and Jinn (Demon)”
(published by Partridge Singapore) by Dr. Mira Bajirova explores the two main causes of infertility.

Bajirova, an associate professor, obstetrician-gynecologist and in vitro fertilization consultant from Paris,
explores what decreased oxygen utilization means to those suffering from infertility. When the
environment or body has too many positive ions, the result is decreased oxygen utilization. Positive
ions are produced by the manmade atmosphere, and they increase the acidity and inflammation in the
body. These positive ions can affect the body in numerous ways, including decreased fertility. In the book,
the author points out that what people must do is to expose themselves to the negative ions.

Moreover, Bajirova also highlights how “Evil Jinn” — through Jinn possession, black magic and evil eye
— can lead to disastrous consequences, including the infertility. In Quran, Jinn are described as beings
created by God before mankind from the smokeless fire, with free will, living in a world parallel to that
of mankind, and are invisible to human eyes in their normal state. They have the professions, different
religions, the court, they reproduce and they are the subject to Allah’s commands and prohibitions. In
the book, the author stresses that protection from the “Evil Jinn” is within the noble Quran and hadith

Filled with insights from the Quran and medicine, this book is an informative guide for anyone seeking
to improve their health and expand their family.

Interview with Denis Goodwin, author of The Prison Planet Handbook

Title: The Prison Planet Handbook
Author: Denis Goodwin
Publisher: XLibris
Genre: Reference
Format: Ebook

Who are we, and where did we come from? When we turn to the information provided to us, we find a mud pool of possibilities. Is this intended to subvert our built-in guidance systems? We also discover that people who are adept at researching big-picture science are offered special jobs conditional on being sworn to secrecy. What is behind this strategy? Sometimes, the reality prescribed to us doesn’t fit with or explain what we experience. So if you too know something is not quite right, wonder what else is out there, what the bigger picture is, who benefits with us excluded from it, and are ready for changes on earth, the bottom line is here.


Do you listen to music while writing? If so, what do you listen to? No. I'm usually focussed on other people's testimony
Do you have any suggestions for upcoming writers? If they are writing about this topic, there is an enormous amount of information available. 
What is it you like to do when you are not reading/writing? Farming, Earth moving, Tramping, or cycling, (occasional Sunday road group or trail ride). 
Is there an author/authors that have inspired you? Stewart Swerdlow, Cathie O'Brien and David Icke. 
How do you/would you react to a bad review of your book? Walk on by. With a selectively informed, (programed) population, not everyone is open to or ready 
for big picture knowledge.

Book Feature: A Water Lily Blooms by Sylvia S. Mader

Inside the Book:

Title: A Water Lily Blooms
Author: Sylvia S. Mader
Publisher: Virtualbookworm.com
Genre: Coming of Age
Format: Ecopy /Paperback

An attractive young woman lies critically injured and comatose in a hospital bed far from home. Images come and go as she struggles to regain consciousness. Is that a tall, dark man beckoning her from a distance? Will she reach him? Or will her life be cut short, denying her a second chance for happiness? How did she get from being a happy, promising young pre-med student to here? And like this?
This coming of age tale follows the struggles of a driven but naive high school graduate. Andrea Bradford leaves her peaceful Martha’s Vineyard home for college, wanting to be a physician — a true professional, just like so many boys in her class. But once at college, she begins suffering the anxieties of homesickness, a blistering schedule, constant disagreements with her mother, and the uncertainty of a possible stage career. Meanwhile, several romances awaken her pent-up sexuality and introduce her to inter-racial realities and even the lure of New York high society.
Episodes of confusion, disappointment, elation, tragedy, and reconciliation all shape Andie, as she grows to become a mature, competent woman by the end of this truly “American” story.


10 Things You Didn’t Know About Becoming a Published Author

Just to let you know, I wrote Biology texts before writing my recent novel, A Water Lily Blooms.  Novel publishing is a completely different ball of wax compared to publishing a text. True, I did my first Biology text years ago (don’t ask how many) but the first text is now in its 16th edition! To get my first biology text published, it required only minimal effort to find a publisher and after working like the dickens to get the text done and in good shape, it was immediately published.  The publisher did all the marketing, of course.

So, what 10 things didn’t I know about publishing a novel?

First, I didn’t know that writing the novel would be so much fun. It’s a chance to really be yourself —to be your characters and to feel it like they do and have your reader feel it too. It’s a shared experience between you and your readers —what better way to communicate with man-woman kind than to have shared feelings? True, the private lives of your characters are exposed and therefore the author is exposed but the communicative act is worth it.

Second, I learned that a manuscript has to be polished. I don’t mean making sure words are spelled correctly and grammar and punctuation are correct.  Those tasks can be turned over to editors. Instead, I am referring to making sure the book is a proper length and you have said what you meant to say.

Third, I didn’t know it was customary to get an “agent” and I was amazed to find there are hundreds of “agents”. If an agent decides to take you on, they will assist you in getting a publisher. Selecting prospective agents can take a while before you even begin sending them your manuscript.  And the agents take their time in getting back to you.

Fourth, I don’t know if anyone has tried to estimate the number of budding novelists but I soon got the impression it has to be at least in the thousands. I was absolutely floored by how many competitors I had all trying to get their novel published.

Fifth, I didn’t know the process would require computer literacy.  Since agents are apparently overwhelmed, they are able to dictate how, when, and where they will condescend to review your novel. Even the manuscript has to be available as an electronic file.

Sixth, I found out about the world of “self-publishers”. Just as with agents, there is a myriad of self-publishers and selecting one can be an arduous process. You have to be prepared to do some homework in order to select one for a proper fit. Virtual Bookworm turned out to be a good fit for me and I have enjoyed working with them.

Seventh, I learned if I self-publish, I would have to be assist my publisher in the marketing process and it would be a good idea to do some marketing on my own. There are plenty of sources on the web that offer advice but it’s hard to judge the quality of the advice —they might just want to sell you something.

Eighth, I didn’t appreciate that writing a novel would give me a good reason to connect with members of my extended family and friends both new and old.  It’s a very rewarding experience because everyone cheers you on while you’re writing the novel and wants to help get the word out when you are marketing your novel.

Ninth, I had no idea how much it would cost to self-publish. I am willing to estimate that the entire process of getting a novel self-published and marketed will cost at least a few thousand dollars. However, the royalty rate is generally higher than that offered by a trade publisher.

Tenth, I didn’t realize that after I learned the mechanics of writing a novel and getting it published I would be willing to start again. After all, you don’t want to waste all the knowledge you gained from the first experience.
