Writestream: Shatter the Narrative on February 10

10273414_1488207624754603_2676597245357386743_nAs promised a few months ago, Shatter the Narrative will be a regular monthly feature on Writestream Tuesday in 2015. As culture warriors, one of the best ways we can create positive change is to take on the pervasive, destructive myths deliberately foisted upon our society by the left, with the intention of dismantling and destroying everything good, decent, and unique about American life. If you missed the inaugural broadcast, click here.

On Tuesday, February 10, CLFA members Jack July, James L. Young, Declan Finn, Marina Fontaine and Ms. Always Right will participate in a panel discussion eviscerating the following narratives:

  • Existence of the “Moderate Muslim”
  • Gun Control Laws Stop Gun Violence
  • Republican = Conservative
  • “Southerners are Stupid”
  • The only way to achieve “racial equality” is through the State

During the live show, we welcome your calls at (347) 945-7246 and your presence in the chat room. Please be advised that during this particular episode, we’re focused exclusively on the topics above, so if you do call in, keep it relevant to the conversation. Unfortunately, there’s an endless supply of narratives in need of shattering, which is why “Shatter the Narrative” is now a regular, monthly feature. If you have a suggestion for a topic for an upcoming panel, please contact me here.

Happy Anniversary CLFA!

10273414_1488207624754603_2676597245357386743_n

Just over a year ago, my friend and fabulous writer/author Jamie Wilson added me to a new Facebook group –  Conservative Libertarian Fiction Alliance. And I am so thankful she did because I’ve not only developed wonderful friendships but also discovered a wealth of creative talent to interview on Writestream Tuesday. Eventually, my involvement in the CLFA led to a great new segment in the show’s second hour – Right Wing Riot – Public Service Satire featuring Scary Smart, Ms. Always Right, and The Prince of Whitebread.

And on Tuesday, December 16, I’ll welcome one of CLFA’s founders, Marina Fontaine, to the program to share her thoughts about the CLFA’s  purpose, growth, and goals for 2015. We’ll also delve into universal challenges facing independent authors like choosing the right platform for you book, managing expectations, and using social media for success. Other topics to be discussed include how to write an honest but constructively critical review for fellow indy authors, and how CLFA members manage to remain friends even when passionate thread topics become….well, passionate.

During the live show, we may even add to some of the gift-giving suggestions from the December 2 episode and welcome calls from CLFA members and Writestream listeners at (347) 945-7246.  After the first hour, stay tuned for the Right Wing Riot with Scary Smart, Ms. Always Right, and The Prince of Whitebread!

Author Daniella Bova on Steps To Salvation

STSCoverWEB

This latest five-star Amazon review from the author of Tears of Paradox, Daniella Bova, made my day:

In Steps To Salvation I learned a great deal about history. The book opens in the year 2412 in Africa, many years after a worldwide upheaval, “The Armageddon War.” The main characters are all fictional descendants of historical figures from the past and present day, including Adolph Hitler, Charles Manson, Hillary Clinton, George W. Bush and Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

The characters are vividly written. They’re so true to life that I found myself laughing out loud during certain scenes containing the fictional future descendant of President Bill Clinton. In addition to laughing, parts of what I learned made me extremely angry. This book was painstakingly researched. It included facts about world leaders of which I was unaware, even though I’m reasonably up to date on current events as a rule.

Another reader mentioned that Steps to Salvation would be a very good choice for a book club. I agree. Many people of different faiths and backgrounds could find plenty to discuss. Mr. Attia’s ideas are sometimes a bit surprising. I can’t say I agree with every single point he made, but I can and do respect anyone who’s been through a near death experience. Mr. Attia’s ideas for the betterment of society were incorporated in a fresh, engaging way in the Steps To Salvation.

Visit Amazon.com to read the full review and pick up a copy of Shlomo Attia’s book, available in Kindle and paperback. With the holidays coming up, it makes a great gift.

Steps To Salvation now on Amazon

STSCoverWEBYou 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].

2014_07_05_Shlomo_Book_012Looking 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.

Bill ClintonShlomo 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 Adolf Hitlerget 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!
