Book Review: Soul Mates & Angels

Book Review: Soul Mates & Angels

Now up on Amazon.com:

This beautiful story drew me in from the moment I began reading. Written in the first person, its tone is at once hopeful, joyful, inquisitive, and thoughtful. Blessed with a supernatural ability to communicate with angels, the main character Anita Lyn Riley struggles to reconcile the mundane aspects of her life — from high school bullies to adolescent crushes — with the knowledge that evil exists everywhere, not just in some far away places.

On a personal level, she knows what it feels like to be misunderstood and feared for being different. When we first meet Anita, she is adapting to her new public high school, having upset the religious sensibilities of the priests and nuns at her former Catholic institution with her tales of reincarnation and otherworldly visions. As the book unfolds, her journey becomes progressively more difficult as circumstances force her to take courageous stands for justice, spurred on by righteous anger.

Filled with endearing characters and thought-provoking insights, Soul Mates & Angels celebrates the unbreakable bond that exists between all humans as children of God, the power of good to overcome evil, and the unseen realm where angels and loved ones are always there to help us.

You can preview and purchase the book, which is now an Amazon Bestseller, here.

A Reader’s Impressions of ‘Water Signs: A Story of Love and Renewal.’

Received this wonderful feedback via email yesterday from a reader after returning from my interview with John Ricciutti of Radnor Studio 21.  No matter how many times someone reaches out with positive things to say about Water Signs: A Story of Love and Renewal, I still get the same feeling of exhilaration and accomplishment. Once upon a time, publishing a novel seemed like an unattainable dream. Then the internet and advanced technology came along and made it all possible. I’m grateful for the many doors this novel has opened for me, including becoming the co-founder of Writestream Publishing and Writestream Radio Network. Thank you to all who have supported me in my endeavors!

9780996653176I bought your book (Water Signs) and I am half way done. I cannot  believe all of the similarities to my life in Pennsylvania.

-I previously worked in Wayne, PA on Swedesboro Road and Devon
Park Drive.
-I used to rent houses in Sea Isle City and my kids go down to
Ocean City every year with their families.
-My husband used to work at the Power Plant in Eddystone for
PECO/Exelon.
-My sister’s name is Monica and I call her Moni.
-Two of my sons live in Media – one on one side of Linvilla
Orchards and the other on the other side.
-We are still Phillies and Eagle fans.
-I bowled at the Showboat Casino many moons ago.
-I love Wawa and wish they had them here in Arizona. If you live  near a Wawa you are going there at least once a day.
-Three of my kids graduated from Cardinal O’Hara High School.

The lists just goes on and on. I can’t wait to finish the book. You are a wonderful author. You keep me wanting more!

Relentless Pursuit of Truth with Thorough Detail – A Review of TWA 800: The Crash, the Cover-Up and the Conspiracy

Just posted on Amazon.com:

As a reader of Jack Cashill’s excellent American Thinker articles, particularly the ones pertaining to TWA 800, I was excited to discover the release of this book, which I read in one sitting. Not only is it well researched, documented, and organized, the author’s writing style draws you in and compels you to keep turning the pages.

While hardly surprising, the painstaking detailing of government corruption — from silencing and discrediting witnesses, to instructing the FBI to tamper with evidence to fit the desired narrative, to arresting two innocent people who dared to uncover to the truth — should make every American angry. Cashill connects the dots and provides ample evidence to support his assertions. He also recounts his biased treatment by the media, including the supposedly “fair and balanced” network, in branding him a “conspiracy theorist” and giving him a ridiculously short amount of time to address complex questions and respond to criticism.

In terms of the witnesses themselves, what surprised me the most was that many were aviation and military professionals — not attention-seekers after their “fifteen minutes of fame.” Their passion for and relentless pursuit of truth, along with the author’s, provides a stark contrast to the self-aggrandizing bureaucrats and government “leaders” complicit in the election year cover-up. Using the example of Rep. Kurt Weldon, the book is also cautionary tale for any honest person who seeks and serves political office for noble reasons and dares to take a stand for justice.

The corruption at every level of government is staggering: how these people live with themselves is beyond comprehension.

To skeptics and believers alike, all I can say is read the book before you draw any conclusions. And thank you, Jack Cashill, for your tireless efforts to uncover the truth about TWA 800.

Writestream Tuesday with Publishing Industry Professional Ally Machate

“Your book is your product, not your baby.” — Ally Machate

If you’re an aspiring or seasoned author who’s overwhelmed by the plethora of technology choices and the thought of creating an effective marketing campaign, I highly recommend listening to my July 12 Writestream Radio interview with Ally Machate, book editor and owner of The Writer’s Ally.

Ally is an industry professional who graciously shares her knowledge with me on the air once per quarter for the benefit of the audience. During the July 12 episode, we discussed  some specific aspects of book marketing including the importance of a compelling cover, the Amazon “Look Inside” feature, Goodreads book giveaways, and reviews.

As Ally notes at her website, here are a few of the questions we covered:

  • What’s the first thing listeners should know about marketing their book on platforms like Amazon and Goodreads?
  • What are some of the ways they can maximize their book listings and accounts?
  • How else can they beef up their presence on Amazon and Goodreads?
  • How important is it to get reviews on these sites?
  • How can authors get more, better reviews and what will that do for them?
