Discovery 6: The “Shucking” Truth

The Shucking Truth

by Rachel Shuck

Genre: Weight Loss, Women’s Health, Diets

Sassy you say? Discover Authors

I love it when a plan comes together. My plan? Teaching people how to get and stay healthy without fad diets, weight loss shakes, expensive supplements or any other such non-sense. The strategy? Teach them to eat real, whole food.

Yesterday I received this email from a friend who had loaned out my book to a co-worker. All it takes is a little bit of knowledge and the willingness to take baby steps in the journey to achieving life long health and wellness. I think this lady is well on her way, plus I can’t help but like anyone that calls me sassy ;) Here’s what she said:

I went back through and re-read Rachel’s book. Since we are doing the biggest loser at work, I thought it would it would be extra helpful. First, I had forgotten how sassy she is, I love that. 2nd, when she talked about the average lunch of someone of who watching their weight, it was almost item for item exactly what I had been eating for a week. A turkey wrap.

I thought I was doing good, but realized where I could make better choices. It was very helpful. Please let her know that I have been reading more labels this week and I’m gonna share the book with my sister.

Thanks again

In_there_v2 (2)

In There

By Jill Johse

Genre: Children, Science Fiction, Adventure

In There is a three-part series for middle grade full of accurate historical action while following twelve-year-old Linh through three different eras. Linh must battle the elements handed to her while trying to find the portal that will take her back home, back to real time.

In the first book of the series, Twelve-year-old Linh Roberts has an exciting and adventurous life with her undercover-cop dad. Together they solve mysteries, investigate strange phenomenon, and help those in need. But her adventurous life suddenly screeches to a halt when her dad is murdered. She moves in with her aunt and uncle, and after several months decides to continue down the sleuthing path her father put her on. Her first investigation of a house rumored to have disembodied voices within, proves to be exciting but also intimidating and downright petrifying when she is abruptly tossed through time and ends up in the middle of Hitler’s aggression-inflicted Denmark. She is quickly branded a Jew and must battle her way out before she is exterminated with her new Jewish friends. Her conflicts are many while she hides under docks, in boats, in the forest, and tries to make it to the safety of neutral Sweden, as well as finding a way back to her real home without changing or damaging the course of history.

In There, WTFA picBook two of the series is due to be released next month! In this second part, the portal tosses Linh into 1899 where she must battle the unkind and insensitive likes of factory bosses who use child slavery and abuse to make their money. Keep your eyes open for number two of the series! It will be on the kindle shelf soon!

Picture of JJ

JJ’s writing began while in high school, but didn’t take off until 2000 when she became a stay-at-home-mom and had the flexibility to put more time into it. While raising her two boys and spending time with her husband, she produced several stories. She hasn’t stopped since. Other than being a mom, writing is her favorite job. Her boys are grown and have moved out, thus giving her flexibility a bigger push in front of the computer.

JJ balances equally her family and her narratives. Now, she is on the third manuscript of her IN THERE series, revising a book she wrote several years ago to make it into a series, revising a western manuscript, and has begun a western romance which will be none like you’ve ever read.

“Soaks up history like a sponge” is an understatement for JJ. History is her forte, which anyone reading just one of her books can tell. While she writes fiction, all of her books are historically based with
accurate events. She has no problem delving for a week into research just to find the answer to one question.

When dragged away from her laptop, JJ loves all things outdoors, from working in her gardens to camping and fishing. Her friends also take a priority on her list, and she travels with them to historic towns to get ideas for her next written offering.

Any reader will find out how passionate she is about writing. Check out all her books for a historic ride through time. JJ writes mostly historic mysteries, but writes for most age groups. There’s a ride for everyone.

http://bit.ly/LiK60hAbout the Author-Author Patty Johnson was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, to Joseph and Anna Mae Johnson. Both parents believed a good education plus good manners equalled a good future. Joseph taught Patty to read using the newspaper before she entered kindergarten, and her love for words never ceased. For 25+ years, she worked as a legal secretary/paralegal, but never gave up on her dream of becoming a published author.

The mother of two sons, both diagnosed with autism and ADHD, would tell them bedtime stories every night. The boys loved the stories so much, they would ask to hear them again and again. Having to write the stories down because the boys did not want her to deviate from the original version, the author realized she had put together a nice collection of children’s storybooks. Corey the Calf is a byproduct of Patty’s bedtimes with her children, as well as a dream come true for the author.

Patty writes imaginative stories for young children. Each story is entertaining and educational; each story teaches a lesson on a moral value, such as honesty, friendship, and sharing; and each story in the series ends with tips to the parents to help their children. One half of all proceeds from the sales of the storybooks are donated to organizations benefitting children with autism.

Patty also writes for The Fellowship Journal, a Christian newsletter, and is the former Editor-in-Chief of the Atlanta Association of Black Journalists. She isn’t afraid to admit that she can express herself better in writing than speaking, or that butter pecan ice cream can sweeten even the worst of days.

Discovery 6: Three at the Center of Rage

Three at the Center of Rage

By Martin J. Ryan

Genre: Thriller, Suspense, Crime Fiction

 

Book Excerpt

Posted by Martin on 24th January 2014 in My Opinions

One of my three protagonists, Yusuf (Joe) Masood (from Queens, NY), is on leave from terror training, long enough to visit his ailing grandmother in Islamabad; but she has been removed to Lahore for medical treatment, and he is now alone in her house where he is visited by a stranger, Major Nazir Hussain, a man he is in no mood to trust.

Having been told by the Major of his connection to the CIA, Yusuf says, “It spooks me and I don’t get it.”

“Yes, of course, let me educate so we can move on. What you see is all a game of angled mirrors. Reflections of reflections. From the outside one is never quite sure of what one is looking at. The CIA and their contractors are all over Pakistan. They may be gathering intelligence on the ground, or murdering people. Or they may be providing weapons to enemy insurgents to keep the crisis level raised, to rationalize a U.S. presence. If one is uncovered, he retreats to the embassy. And whatever it is he has been doing, it is simply portrayed as executing diplomatic business.

“Here, there are public outcries and official indignation, but we in Pakistan are deep in the game. For instance, if we know of an imminent American missile strike, we in the ISI often alert the militants beforehand. We sometimes provide funding and sanctuary to the Taliban. I am secular, like you, but many in the military and in ISI are fundamentalists. In either case it often comes down to pragmatism and money.”

Yusuf recalls the intercept, and waving on, of the Vice and Virtue men by the Pak military, but says nothing.

“Some days, under threat of a cutback of dollars from the U.S. we attack the Taliban and kill them. Then the U.S. military bribes the Taliban in dollars to prevent the Taliban, or bandits of every stripe, from attacking their convoys. On other days they kill each other, with the Taliban shooting down American aircraft with Rockets the U.S. gave to them to fight the Soviets. Sometimes, to please the U.S. president, we invade Taliban territory; but to please the Taliban we shoot at empty buildings. Still, the ungrateful Taliban we created and supported will often attack our government and military installations and kill hundreds.

“What this all comes down to, Yusuf, is the economy of Pakistan would collapse without U.S. dollars. The game is this: by keeping the Taliban alive we continue to receive billions in aid. Thus, when we must attack the Taliban, we pay a bribe to the Mujahid for the collateral damage, with American money. Fewer people are killed that way. American businessmen understand this. They bribe their congressmen to not shoot them down. As you can see, one can explain without seeming to make sense. I think we must get past this now. Eh?”

Without a preamble and flat out serious: “I know who kidnapped your brother. A group of five, actually.” His words as delivered are cold enough in Yusuf’s opinion, to chill the air.
