Water Signs is one of those rare books that makes you feel like you want to meet the characters in person. Yes, they are that real. It is beautifully written with passion for our country and romance. It is one of those books that is just like a good movie, where you hate to see it end. Speaking of more…please Daria, write the sequel as we are left sitting on the edge our seats wanting more. Madeline Rose and her charming husband Kenny will enrich your lives with their love for each other. Yes, a perfect romance does exist.
I fell in love with Rose from the very beginning and couldn’t wait to know more and more about her story. I am rooting for her and hope the author will consider writing a sequel. I would like to be informed if she does. Her writing style kept me engaged and intrigued. I appreciate an author like DiGiovanni who has a keen knowledge of English language and who writes as if you were right there with the main character. Kudos to you!
You can now purchase a paperback version of Shlomo Attia’s Steps To Salvation on Amazon.com. While it will be available on Kindle soon, it’s not yet being sold in that format, although you can purchase it as an ebook on Lulu.com.
Check out this wonderful review from reader Gail Tenzer:
Steps to Salvation is a MUST READ. The author, Shlomo Attia explains that he experienced a Near Death Experience and while in that state, was charged with returning to life because “his work wasn’t finished!” Apparently he was to return to present solutions to the problems that have plagued mankind for the past millennia, in which we keep repeating the same mistakes, always expecting different results and failing. Once again our civilization stands on the precipice of a New Dark Age — and apparently Shlomo was charged with presenting some new solutions which if taken under advisement might prevent Western Civilization from once again going down that road.
The novel takes place in the year 2412 (400 years into the future), and proposes that at that time, we will already be living in the “Messianic Era…: which according to Jewish tradition “…will be one of global peace and harmony, an era free of strife and hardship” [Wikipedia].
Looking back over World History, much of the strife the world has experienced and continues to do so in our times is due to “religious conflicts” directly relating to religious DOGMA! Let us remember that until the Enlightenment, political power rested within the Church. Many of today’s seculars also rebel against the concept of G-d or Creator precisely because they reject the political power that religious organizations (men) try to exert over their lives by manipulating religious beliefs to control them. In other words, it still comes down to politics masquerading as religion and the bottom line is still the ambitions of INSIDERS to exert CONTROL over the masses! It’s still all about Power and not really about the Creator.
Shlomo thinks outside the box and presents a vision of the future in which the world frees itself from this religious strife, and fulfilling the Jewish aspiration and prayer that “On that Day the Lord will be ONE, His Name will be One” by positing that without cohersion, mankind has accepted the concept of the One G-d Religion! Brilliant! No more strife amongst men that “My G-d is Better than Your G-d!”
So much for the solution to religious strife.
Shlomo then posits solutions to helping entrepreneurs through a lottery system of funding, solutions to education, the prison system and the rehabilitation of criminals, and other challenges facing present day society.
Characters in the book are descendants of Historical figures, including the progeny of Hitler, Kissinger, Mao, etc. — those who are the progeny of evil doers are restricted to a colony in Africa called Arisha, and have to devote their lives to the study of their ancestors, their wrong-doings, and admit remorse for the evil they have wrought, and ultimately have to pass a test in order to get to see the rest of the world. This is a totally new way of looking at things as they are and have been in the world, and how we can avoid repeating history.
In these grim times, the book is refreshing, presents interesting solutions and a light at the end of the tunnel — demonstrating that there is hope for a better future after all. I wonder if applying his solutions can help usher in the Messianic Age. Without going into details to give away the solutions, Shlomo presents a solution to the current Middle East strife particularly with the Muslims and their hatred for Jews. Read the book to find out how this can be brought about without bloodshed!
I read the book in 3 days and could not put it down!
It’s not easy protesting outside in Florida in the summer but that didn’t stop several patriots from facing the heat to stand up for our national sovereignty. To be very honest, I only stayed for about an hour, while just about everyone else I spoke with had been there for the entire time (11 a.m. – 2 p.m.).
Suffice it to say, these patriots have had it with the permanent political class destroying the Republic. I love being with Tea Party activists because they understand that the Republican Party is a bigger enemy than the Left. Even though they hate their own base (which they believe is comprised of nativist yahoos) they still fool quite a few on our side by co-opting the language of limited government when it suits their purposes (e.g. winning elections to hold onto political power). Someone told me Melbourne will be receiving a shipment of illegal children next week. It seems to me our local and state officials should fight against it. Will they?
For all of those who accuse us of being “heartless” and “un-Christian” where is your outrage at the governments south of the border who are happy to exploit these innocent kids in collusion with the totally corrupt Obama administration and entrenched D.C. insiders? Where is your critical analysis? Don’t you wonder why this is happening NOW? If not, you should. And spare some compassion for innocent American children whose ancestors came here the right way, with the intention of assimilating into American life and culture — not to further drain our welfare system and public schools (the former of which needs serious reform, and the latter of which needs to be completely returned to state and local control). American kids (citizens and legal immigrants) are the ones most vulnerable to disease with a new school year about to begin. Doesn’t it make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that diseases this country eradicated are now infecting it again?
Just say NO to amnesty and YES to securing our borders NOW.
Better late than never, my 2008 novel Water Signs is now available on Kindle for $2.99. It’s been an interesting journey, navigating through this brave new media marketing world over the past six years. Although I haven’t actively promoted the book in a very long time, I recently realized that 1.) My network of contacts, friends and clients has dramatically increased thanks to platforms like Facebook and Twitter, providing a large new base of potential readers, and 2.) Now that I’ve completed two ghostwritten books and have a handle on social media projects for clients, I can make the time to (finally) finish Sea To Shining Sea.
One of the many benefits of being an independently published author is that you can never really penetrate your market; therefore, there are endless opportunities to reach new readers. And what better way to pave the way to sequel success than to have my audience fall in love with (or in many cases, all over again) Water Signs just before the sequel’s release?
