Dear Reader, Love B.A. Bellec


Dear Reader…

If you are picking up a copy of Someone’s Story, then you already probably know one of the themes is mental health. My book deals with a few tough issues. I don’t want to spoil it but know that if you struggle with life, this book is for you.

I wrote this as my therapy. A path out of the mindset I was stuck in. A blueprint you can follow for how to correct your journey if you get stuck. There is no right way to live life. There is no ultimate answer. What I did was tried to show how to persevere through tough situations.

Whenever a stranger picks up a copy and has an emotional reaction, it really touches me. Although my book has only been available for a little while, some of the reviews have been very open and personable. The energy I captured in Someone’s Story is raw and real. You will feel it.

If you are an introvert. If you wonder about what the future holds. If you are a deep thinker. If you don’t fit in. If you feel alone…please come check out my book.

About the Book 

In his debut endearing coming-of-age book, B.A. Bellec writes about a group of weirdos that find and save each other from the dark depths of their minds. Someone’s Story is literally Someone’s story, as in a first-person narrative of a teenager that calls himself Someone. As he struggles to find a new footing in a new space, we encounter the many ups and downs of modern teenage life, the difficulties that adjusting to adult feelings bring, and a few tear-jerking surprises along the way.

Littered with music, mental health, friendship, loss, meditation, advice, pop culture, and even inspiring an EP, there is so much nostalgia, inspiration, and depth here it is hard to absorb it all. Cozy up somewhere warm and enjoy!

“B. A. Bellec has crafted a masterpiece of emotive and well-rounded young adult fiction.”
K.C. Finn – Author

“The variety of personages, situations, and mental illnesses represented allows all readers to relate to this book and take something away from reading! This novel is on our list of all-time favourites!”
International Girls and Books

“Someone’s Story is a beautiful novel, written in great prose, very descriptive, and filled with insights about life. The author does an incredible job with themes of family, friendship, bullying, and personal development. It felt like I was reading a portion of my emotions and myself in Someone’s Story.”

Dear Reader, Love Daryl-Jarod


Dear Reader…

Pain in My Heart has been a long time coming. I debated quite often about not releasing it due to themes of depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, and failed love conquests. All of which are themes I had not yet explored in previous releases. To be honest, I was nervous more than anything about how audiences might receive it.

After hearing the news of a family member who committed suicide, I was left with a choice. I could either place this book on a shelf to never see the light of day or I could set my fears aside and give the world a piece of my heart. Pain in My Heart is exactly that. Every tear, every heartache, every bottled up emotion…all poured out into the pages of this book.

Writing this book was just as therapeutic as sitting down for a therapy session. I unleashed every crippling thought running through my brain, and in return, there was no judgement. Only peace.


About the Book:

Title: PAIN IN MY HEART
Author: Daryl-Jarod
Publisher: Independent
Pages: 129

Pain in My Heart is a candid and honest journey through the eyes of a hopeless romantic. Each poem serves as part of a puzzle that not only pieces together heartache and love, but also the vulnerable parts we fearfully conceal from the world.

Poems that cover topics of self-love, depression, anxiety, and life as a gay black male in today's society, all await you as Daryl-Jarod unlocks his heart to yours, one page at a time.

Dear Reader, Love Susan Wingate


Dear Reader…

I think the main character in HOW THE DEER MOON HUNGERS, MacKenzie Fraser might say, “Hey. Why do you want to read about me? I’m just a kid. Sure. I just lost my little sister, Tessa to a drunk driver who ran over her. And sure. Mom and Dad’s marriage might fall into a raging dumpster fire of love and loss but I’m not much different than any other sixteen-year-old kid out there in today’s world. Life is rough. Deal. With. It. Right? Or not. I’m no Dalai Lama. What do I know? I don’t have any answers. In fact, it seems like all I have are the big Qs, you know? Wait…you too? Well, and totally, now, from me to you…I hope you get your head on. I truly do. You seem like a nice person.”

What I might say is that writing HOW THE DEER MOON HUNGERS made me a better person. I hope that doesn’t sound trite. But the writing of Deer Moon made me more aware of things, of people I take for granted, like friends, like my family, like my husband.

Taking someone for granted seems like it should appear so enormous in one’s mind, as though when you’re doing it, there should be a big neon sign in great hulking letters screaming at you: Hey Stupid! This here life is fleeting and you’re not special! Quit being a chump! Be nicer!
That’s a lot of exclamation points. But you get what I mean. And those big neon signs never appear. Because taking someone for granted is much more subtle and invasive than a billboard. Hell, even a stop sign. Taking a person for granted weasels in and, before you know it, you’re saying and doing stupid things that when you think back on what you’ve said and done, you realize that you’ve been awful and selfish person and can only, at this point, ask for their forgiveness. Because what if they walked out the door right this second and got hit by a car? What would you say then? The answer? Absolutely nothing.

Telling the people in your life that you love them every single day is of the utmost importance. It will make them happy. And telling Bob I love him makes me less of a jerk. In fact, I’m sure I should be telling him right here, right now that I love him more than anything in the world.

So, with that, thank you dear reader for reading HOW THE DEER MOON HUNGERS. I’d love your opinion of Mac’s story. God bless you and with much love, Susan Wingate.

About the Book

MACKENZIE FRASER witnesses a drunk driver mow down her seven-year-old sister and her mother blames her. Then she ends up in juvie on a trumped-up drug charge. Now she’s in the fight of her life…on the inside! And she’s losing.
HOW THE DEER MOON HUNGERS is a coming of age story about loss, grief, and the power of love.

Dear Reader, Love Laura Preble


Dear Reader…

If you are contemplating reading Anna Incognito, here are some things you should know. It’s a book about a woman with severe OCD, which, in this pandemic world, might be a condition that could be useful to have. You might pick up some real-life hacks. Also, it’s about children and relationships and about how to borrow a sweet Caddie ride when you really aren’t sure you can drive.

If you’ve already found your way to my novel, Anna Incognito, you most likely have a sense of humor and a fascination with the twists and turns of human psychology. As you may imagine, I’m a big fan of those things too. I’d like to tell you why.

I have lived with various mental illnesses through most of my life, and many people I love also endure various and sundry mental quirks, tics, and conditions. As I reader, I have rarely seen characters with mental illness portrayed in a realistic way, or in a positive way. They’re usually in crisis, or being hospitalized, or falling apart.  And of course, those things do happen with a sometimes-predictable frequency to those of us in this club. What I wanted to show in Anna is that a person can be more than their mental illness. Anna has trichotillomania and dermatillomania (hair and skin picking), compulsive conditions that are borne of trauma. The story is about her journey, both literally and figuratively, where she discovers what has kept her frozen in this condition and unable to move forward.

I also wanted to show that a person like Anna is a whole person, with a sense of humor, strange internal monologues, and fears and hopes. She is not her illness. While it may affect much of what she does, it does not wholly define her.

When I was in a very tenuous place many years ago, I read a book by author Tom Robbins call Still Life with Woodpecker. On a plane ride, moving all of my earthly belongings to California from Ohio to take a job as a journalist, I was 23 and terrified. I read the book on the plane, and one particular thing really stayed with me: Robbins said that “The camel has a big dumb ugly hump…As legend has it, the camel carries its own water, stores it in its stupid hump. If individuals, like camels, perfect their inner resources, if we have the power within us, then we can cross any wasteland in relative comfort and survive in arid surroundings without relying on the external. Often, moreover, it is our ‘hump’- that aspect of our being that society finds eccentric, ridiculous, or disagreeable - that holds our sweet waters, our secret well of happiness, the key to our equanimity in malevolent climes.”

I really latched onto that when I was 23. My ‘inner resources’ —the things that made me not fit in to normal society — were exactly what I needed to make it through the difficulty, the fear of the unknown, the largeness of being alone in a place where I knew no one. That has been true for my whole life. It may be true for you, Dear Reader. I know it’s true for my character, Anna, and the teenaged hitchhiker she picks up, Mellow.

What I’d like to say to you is this: find those eccentric, ridiculous, even disagreeable, aspects in yourself. The quirks, the tics, the thinking, the feeling, all of it. And save it to draw on when life attempts to show you that you are too weird, difficult, talkative, confident, scared, or sad to make it through your journey. Anna made it, I made it, and so can you. Viva la Weirdos, says I! Sew up a freak flag and fly it!

About the Book

Lots of narrative pull…wonderfully complicated. – Jincy Willett, author of The Writing Class, and anthologized by David Sedaris in Children Playing Before a Statue of Hercules.
Anna Colin Beck knows all too well what can happen when things go wrong really wrong. So, she’s spent the last several years living an extremely regimented life at home, doing everything she can to avoid subjecting herself to the torments of a germ-infested world. Everything must be just so, and when things don’t go to plan, she punishes her own body…and that still hasn’t helped alleviate her pain.

After a chance meeting in a laundromat, she finds herself completely infatuated with another person, something that hasn’t happened to her in a long time. Dr. Edward Denture is seemingly brilliant and magnetic…and in the blink of an eye, she’s attending intense somatic therapy sessions as his newest client. The more he draws from her, the further their relationship grows, until it’s crossed countless lines and consumed Anna with a fierce toxicity. And before she knows it, she finds herself buckled into the driver’s seat of a powder-blue El Dorado for a solo cross-country road trip, determined to stop his wedding. It’s a trip that will test every limitation she’s ever set for herself, and though she’s planned extensively for all contingencies, there are some twists and turns you just can’t prepare for.
With wry observations on the intersection of luck, fate, and life, Anna Incognito is a searing, darkly witty exploration of what it means to be alive.

PRAISE FOR ANNA INCOGNITO

IndieReader.com: 5/5 “Rich with witticism in the face of painful realities and evoking lyrical truisms throughout, from of a rating scale of 1 – 5 this novel is so off-the-charts good, it deserves a 10.” LINK HERE
OnlineBookClub.com: 4/4 “The writing was captivating…This book would be great for readers who are struggling with mental health or for those trying to understand it better. Are you ready to go for a drive with Anna?. Buckle up, because you are in for the ride of your life!” LINK HERE
Kirkus Reviews:  “The protagonist’s acerbic wit and mordant tone work well in the difficult material in Preble’s unconventional road novel. A razor-sharp, oddly fun  romp through the American West.” LINK HERE

Dear Reader, Love Marilea C. Rabasa

Dear Reader,

 

Writing a memoir is a bit like taking pictures of my life with the same camera—but with different lenses. And so reconciling these two elements—seeing my life as it was and then viewing it, or aspects of it, from a fresh perspective—is what distinguishes the memoir genre from many others. In my experience with life-writing, it’s the change that happens to the writer when these two elements collide that provides some of the most thrilling takeaways in literature. Many people want to read books with the most salient lessons.

And yet, this genre of writing can be a tricky one. It’s like exploring in a cave. How much do we see on those walls of rock? How bright is the flashlight we are holding? We’re walking from daylight into a dark space, trying to see what’s there. But we are not the same person we were last year, or when we were a young child. We might interpret what’s etched into those rocks very differently now.

Memoir is about the truth of memory, not of history. It’s not about what happened to us so much as our perception of those events.

Memoir is indeed a difficult medium to master. And we will pick and choose what we want to gnaw on.  With the eyes of a child I used to be terribly angry with many people in my life: my parents, my siblings, and others. My memory was biased and I viewed things in absolutes—with the unrelenting eyes of a child.

As a parent myself who has struggled with my own children more than my parents ever did, I know only too well that they did the best they could. I understand them and see them as complete human beings, and above all well intentioned, just as I see myself now—but no longer with the eyes of a child.

The passage of time and the perspective it brings have enabled me to see my early years in a different light.  My brother, sister and I enjoyed many privileges that I’m glad to focus on now. Our parents, under trying circumstances, always wanted to ensure our wellbeing. And though it’s taken me many years to recover from the effects of my father’s alcoholism and overcome the depression that had plagued me throughout my life, I can view things through a broader set of lenses and be grateful now l for a truly extraordinary life.

All my best to you,

 

Marilea C. Rabasa

The Seven Messages begin with Jesus declaring he came from Heaven in Message #1, then Jesus explains His Father and His role as the Son in Message #2. Then comes Message #3- where Jesus explains He is the Word and the importance of all our words.

In Message #4- Jesus declares HE IS THE WAY, THE TRUTH and THE LIFE and He gives us over 4o different teachings about Love, Light, Truth, Believing, Asking, Prayer, Forgiveness, Fasting, Marriage, Discipleship etc. The next 2 Messages cover the Kingdom of Heaven and the End Times and finally Message #7- is called the Holy Spirit.

This entire book comes from the 4 Gospels as recorded in the King James Bible and outlined in red ink to signify our Lords Words. As you can see it’s easy to read and you can read one Message at a time in any order you desire. If you want.

Rev. Terry A. Christian

About the Book

This incredible book organizes the teachings of Jesus using only the words spoken by Jesus and nothing more. The book puts readers into an imagined walk with Jesus on the beach, allowing readers to hear over 500 passages spoken by Him as recorded in the 4 Gospels.

“I was asked one time, where did this book idea come from?” says Christian.

“Well, when I was suddenly called away from motivational speaking at the top of my business career, I knew, I was being called to do what Jesus told me, 30yrs earlier. When I asked Jesus what He wanted me to do that wasn’t already being done, Jesus said; ‘Tell them, what I told them and nothing more, add no comments or opinions.’ With those instructions, I composed What Did Jesus Say: The Seven Messages from the Master containing over 500 scriptures spoken only by Jesus to those who loved and followed Him and I’ve added no opinions or comments. Whoever reads this book will know and understand what Jesus said to those who loved and followed Him and what’s expected from those who call Him their Lord and Savior.

Featuring the “best of the best” of what Jesus said, this book is a ‘one of a kind’. The scriptures, stripped of everything save for the words spoken by Jesus, have been composed into seven primary messages and serves as a daily Teaching Devotional.

About the Author

Since dedicating his life to Jesus at the age of 23, Terry Allan Christian has been reading the red lettered version of the 4 Gospels as recorded in the KJV Bible. Even though Terry reads the whole Bible, his primary focus is on the words of Jesus and the example of His actions.

Terry grew up in a violent dysfunctional family where he quit school at 16 and left home. He stuttered so bad he could only say 3-5 words in a row. His family and friends mocked him and that caused much stress in his early life.

At the age of 23, he had a near death experience and in which he had a dream. In this dream, he was told that one day he would be a teacher for Jesus. Needless to say, he was scared at first because of his stuttering and lack of structured education however, he always had a child-like faith and trust in Jesus as Lord.

After the dream, he was soon hired by the Dale Carnegie Organization and trained in sales and public speaking, where he met a man who taught him how to visually read. During the next few years Terry read several hundred books on the subject of personal growth.

At the age of 30, Terry became a professional Motivational Speaker and Executive Trainer and over the next 20 years he would deliver more than 2,500 presentations to private and public audiences across America and Canada.

Several years ago, Terry retired as a public speaker after feeling the Holy Spirit redirecting his life. He was led to do what Jesus told him many years earlier. After researching the 4 Gospels he composed the book What Did Jesus Say: The Seven Messages from the Master, using only the Words spoken by Jesus as recorded in the 4 Gospels, without adding any personal comments or opinions.
As in all God called missions it took longer, cost more and challenged him to the edge of his faith. He would later say, he had to read the Book of Job just to understand why this was happening to him and was he being tested or penalized. In the end, he was being tested and by the grace of God, he prevailed.

Now after 12 years of study, obedience, difficulty and struggle, this book is now available in Paperback, eBook, Audio Book and Kindle.

Today, Author and Counselor, Rev. Terry Christian is founder of Foundations for Life ‘Online’ Ministries and he presently lives at Negril Jamaica where he does local missionary work in schools and churches while counseling Christians worldwide online thru his program Christians Helping Christians.

Negril, Jamaica is where Rev. Christian went to fast & pray while seeking divine healing for Bladder Cancer. His doctors gave him 3yrs to live so he created a healing sabbatical and after fasting & praying, and walking the beach for 21 days, he returned to his Doctors and they released him ‘cancer free’.

Terry calls this program: The Life Walk –aka- The Miracle Walk and now offers this ‘restoration’ program online or in Negril, for everyone seeking Life, Health or Marriage Restoration.
Terry believes: WITH GOD, all things are possible, all the time, wherever we live and at every given moment, when we pray, believing.

Dear Reader, Love Lee Matthew Goldberg


Dear Reader…

Slow Down was my debut novel published in 2015.  I am so excited for it to be re-released by its new publisher All Due Respect and for it to find a new audience and readers. The novel is a noir about Noah Spaeth, who wants to be a famous writer and director. He falls in with a film being made by avant garde director Dominick Bambach. Dominick is married but is having an affair with Noah’s first love, Nevie Wyeth. He starts to work for Dominick in the hopes of getting Nevie back until Dominick’s wife Isadora hatches a plan to kill her husband. If Noah does it, he could take the film over and become that famous writer director he’s always wanted to be. The tagline of the book is, How Far Would You Go to Make Your Dreams Come True? Would Noah even stoop to murder. If you are looking for a thriller with noir influences set in New York City about the underside of Hollywood, Slow Down is for you. Its theme is for all the characters to Slow Down themselves. If they keep up at a too fast pace like they are doing, there are bound to be repercussions. Some will heed that advice while others unfortunately will perish. 

About the Book

How far would you go to make your dreams come true? For budding writer and filmmaker Noah Spaeth, being a Production Assistant in director Dominick’s Bambach’s new avant-garde film isn’t
enough. Neither is watching Dominick have an affair with the lead actress, the gorgeous but troubled Nevie Wyeth. For Noah’s dream is to get both the film and Nevie in the end, whatever the cost. And this obsession may soon become a reality once Dominick’s spurned wife Isadora reveals her femme fatale nature with a seductive plot to get rid of her husband for good.

Slow Down, a cross between the noir styling of James M. Cain and the dark satire of Bret Easton Ellis, is a thrilling page-turner that holds a mirror up to a media-saturated society that is constantly searching for the fastest way to get ahead, regardless of consequences.

Here’s what readers are saying about Slow Down!

“Slow Down is a frenetic first novel…full of unedifying characters scrambling for the elusive, perhaps imaginary, brass ring.”
Publishers Weekly

“Lee Matthew Goldberg writes like a young Bret Easton Ellis doing a line of uncut Denis Johnson off the back of a public urinal. Memorable in the best possible way, also mostly illegal, Goldberg’s Slow Down is a mad man’s tour of Manhattan’s vices, follies, and ultimate betrayals.”
–Urban Waite, author of The Terror of Living and Sometimes the Wolf

What would happen if one of Raymond Chandler’s 1940’s femme fatales were to join forces with one of Jay McInerney’s enfant terribles? Lee Matthew Goldberg wrings every delectable trope imaginable out of this mashup while still managing a fresh spin. A writer to watch out for.”
–David Kukoff, author of Children of the Canyon

“Slow Down starts fast and gets faster quick, gunning through yellow streetlights on its way to a full collision with your shattered soul. Lee Matthew Goldberg takes on the American Zeitgeist in this stunning debut.”
–Stephen Jay Schwartz, LA Times bestselling author of Boulevard and Beat

Slow Down is a brilliant rush of a work charting the rise and fall of Noah and other pretentious losers. Savor this book.”
Foreword Reviews

“Dark and hard-boiled writing that grabs you by the throat. Slow Down is one of those rare novels that’s so good you want it to go on forever!”
–Nick Pengelley, author of Ryder: An Ayesha Ryder Novel

“The plot takes off…there’s no denying it’s fun to watch rich snots destroy themselves.”
Booklist

“Goldberg’s portrayal of the New York demimonde is one of the book’s strengths and brings to mind Bret Easton Ellis’ Less Than Zero. He also succeeds in marshalling a complicated plot.”
