"Alargados Grises"

"Poemas de Amor"

"Love Poems"(bilingual edition)

"Algunos Adioses sin Respuesta"

Mis poemas son el resultado de instantes fugaces en los que leo una mirada, una pequeña historia que cabe en la forma en que unos brazos yacen apoyados o en un gesto de profunda tristeza o alegría; o en un momento de temblor estético; instantes que, si bien son fugaces, provocan una intensa emoción en mi; surgen, entonces, los versos como verdades incompletas que buscan explicar esa realidad captada, vienen y van en mi mente hasta que aflora el poema como un saber dormido.

...

porque yo, soy poeta, leo las almas

y cuento las lágrimas de la vida.

(Pasos de Arco Iris. Amarillo y violeta)

Me gusta definirme como:" amiga de Las Horas, que custodian las puertas del cielo, de la lluvia, el silencio y sus colores".

 

Description:

Este libro se sumerge en la reflexión de las emociones y sentimientos que nos suscitan algunos adioses que afrontamos en la vida, la forma en que los enfocamos e intentamos superarlos.

Elizabeth Williams
About the Author:

Born in NYC and having travelled and lived around the world I have been influenced by the works of James Redfields' Insights about syncronies and how  the people we meet and the events in our lives can show us a new way of living.  I like others of our time realize that our thoughts are very powerful and fear dominates our reactions in most things on earth. By changing from Fear to Love we can achieve anything. I tried to use local events from newspapers and historical events to illustrate these ideas.  The writings of Pople John Paul 11 have not only inspired me but give us great hope in the future of mankind and for me confirm the belief that we are on the brink of a universal spiritual revival. 

Description:

 What are your intentions? Are your  thoughts based on Fear and leading you to a destructive life or a life of love and purpose? Take a journey through different ages from the Russian revolution to life with the Carthars,to present day life in the UK.  While  Marchell and Johnny search for "Their Place" they encounter and try to influence the lives of those on earth and help them to understand our destiny -is to create heaven on earth. Along the way throughout all time they show us where there is love there is always hope and that Fear which destroys lives can be overcome .Or thoughts are very powerful, change is just a thought away.

Kip A. Kennedy
About the Author:

I've had a lifetime of pleasure in writing short stories. I wrote The Geode Room so that I could bring some of my favorite characters to a setting that would allow me to more fully develop their personalities and understanding of life. I'm very interested in understanding people's feelings, and learning to know more about the interconnectedness they share with others in the development of their lives. Reader input has taken this process full circle for me, providing insights into both my storyline, and the private stories of readers, too.

Description:

The Geode Room has provided me with a setting to share the wisdom I've learned throughout my life. It's a fun and interesting story that encourages readers to become deeply involved with both the characters and setting. Many readers of the first edition of this book have contacted me to share their satisfaction with having known my characters in this lengthy multigenerational perspective on their lives.

About the Author

 

 

Eric D. Wagoner is from Indiana, attended St. Bonaventure University in Olean New York and graduated in 1984 with a degree in Social Science.  Over the following years he has lived and worked in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and Seattle, Washington.  In 1993 he moved to the Piedmont region of North Carolina where over the next twenty years he worked an “ecliptic number of jobs” from carpenter and day laborer, in textile mill, mail clerk, French bread truck driver and as a graphic designer.  This is his First Book.

 

 

Description:

 

          This collection of five short stories was written to both amuse and pacify and are universal, there is something for everyone.

    In The School Bus Driver the reader is informed, from a modified historical perspective, a story of one mans struggle to overcome the barriers of race after his return from world war II. One cheers for Jerry Little from his coming home to his ultimate success at the stories end.

     The story of Oakleaf is about relationships where life imitates art. Oakleaf is a story of unbelievable circumstances. Although fictional, simply put it would be difficult to fabricate the circumstances as what befell the owners of Oakleaf and their neighbors beguiling ways.

     In the Custard King relationships take a hard turn and living life on the blade helps to explain the moral ineptitude and greed of the central characters folly. It is a story of a morally impoverished inventor remembered as the Custard King by those most influenced and taken advantage of by him.

     Atlantic Avenue is a tribute to those who had come before at a time when life was simple, love was everlasting, and a full and happy life could be had for the price of a song.

    Lastly, seeped in the mists of armchair travel is Long road. A sordid, yet incredible, narrative conveyed by a modern day vagabond who lost himself on the king’s highway. This long road is traveled on one thin dime and utilizes all modes of basic transportation including the use of airplane automobile, bicycle, bus, ferryboat, and what seems to be a rather incredible long set of thumbs.

Here's what it's all about:

Of all the headaches contractors have when it comes to lead generation, marketing and sales, closing prospects and generating quality referrals   - Which one is Bugging the Heck out of You?

  • You’re spending $300 or more per month on advertising & marketing to generate leads and do you want to leverage that cost to get a better return?
  • You’re closing less than 50% of your sales calls.
  • You’ve lost jobs to bozo competitors and hackers... AND you know they are not as good as you.
  • You’re cutting your price more than 40% of the time….just to be in the running to get the job.
  • You find yourself giving honest estimates to too many people each week who only want the lowest price.
  • You feel insulted when people want to haggle over price. (Because you know your price is right for a quality project or system that will last).
  • You wonder how you can respond to this question without lowering your price and still get the job? “Gee Bill we like you but do you have any give in your price?”

This book is basic blocking and tackling.

In fact, as you review and study this program you may find yourself saying: “Hey...we do that”. Chances are you probably are doing some of the things in this program.

But here’s the difference.

You either don’t do them all...or in the right order...or with the wording that we’ve developed through testing and implementation since 2002.

In this simple to implement, easy to understand, complete program you and your sales team will learn team to:

First - increase your closing rate by 10%-50% almost immediately.

 This is not hype.  This rate of increase with his client’s is common when they implement the tactics and strategies.

Second - generate more leads and better quality leads, from your current website, ads and marketing, without having to spend any more money than you’re currently spending (or planning to spend).

Just a few of these things you’ll learn:

  • Take all the guesswork out of your presentations and ensure that you can confidently overcome the most common objections
  • Know what to say before, during and after meeting with the prospect
  • Have the confidence to close any profitable opportunity
  • Simply and easily increase your closing success without learning any slick sales training techniques or closing tricks.
  • What to say... and NOT say.... when you meet the prospect
  • How to deliver the number
  • Overcoming the most common objections
  • Proper follow up - without being a pest - and knowing when it's okay to walk away.

What real contractor’s who use these strategies have to say:

“We are on track in the 1st quarter of 2014 to exceed our sales for all of 2013.  The system has been amazing.  Out of the 5 prospects we have used the system with, I signed a construction contract and another 3 have signed design agreements.”  Jacob T.

"Your programs have made it so much easier to close - in fact I raised my prices 2 months ago and haven't seen any change in closing rate. Awesome." - Dalton. Supreme Painting

Thank you Mike the book was very helpful It has motivated me to do more to service the customer rather than just try to sell a cheaper product  It’s the little things tat make a big difference Thanks again Mike, Jimmy W.

Bottom Line:

If you're a good, reliable, honest company that's dedicated to providing quality work at a fair price...

If you’re tired of the endless frustrations of  lead generation, marketing and sales, closing prospects and generating quality referrals…

If you’re ready to learn how to closing more jobs, jobs, rarely having to lower your price to get a job, and start getting great referrals from you customers, then this book is for you.

Her inspiration for writing comes from all forms of daily life, which makes everyday interesting. Enemy Among Us: Whistle Blower dipicts a moral struggle . The struggle has to do with making a choice to save the lives of many at the expense of one's own. We always have a choice to either reach out and help someone in need or walk away , as a result putting our own needs first. Everyone has asked themselves at one time or other: What should I do? or Can I trust this person? Questions not easily answered and which often cause internal conflict. The story explores making the correct decision when pressured to do the opposite. I'd llike readers to take with them after reading the book the message : " Doing the correct thing is not easy. Taking the road against the grain takes courage,commitment and a belief in something bigger than yourself." Happy Reading!

About the Author:

Heaven's Not a Place is a story very close to my heart. I fell in love with the characters as I was writing about them. I lived and breathed them for so long in the writing process that I almost felt that they were my "other children."  Their heartache was my heartache, and their triumph was mine as well. In this tender story of love, I hope that my readers fall in love with the characters of Annie, Jack and Jenna--just as I did.

 

Thank you for reading,

Description:

It's summertime, and Annie Harrison suffers the plight of many single parents—she misses her daughter. While she is struggling to adjust to Jenna’s absence, the tragic death of a dear friend delivers another cruel blow. Then her dreams begin—dreams that are both haunting and intriguing.  And a series of strange incidents occur—each of them making Annie question her beliefs about life, death and the muted line in between.  Can her friend really be reaching out to her with an after-death message?  Or is grief loosening her grip on reality?

Heaven's Not a Place is a different kind of love story. And it also has tantalizing touches of the supernatural.  There are many different kinds of love...but the one most compelling is the love that transcends space and time...

About the Author:

The historical accuracy of the story will appeal to train buffs, history buffs, WWII buffs, and to anyone who enjoys a good road novel with interesting and real characters. The character's flaws make them interesting and appealing. Each scene makes the story move forward. There are no fluff scenes with overdescription which is a common fault with this type of story.

The author has had published two non-fiction works on transportation history and has written two screenplays, one of which was produced and shown at three film festivals, winning one award.

Description:

THE NAVAJO, an action/romance/spy/buddy story wrapped up into a road trip. The setting is 1940 as Air Corps Sgt. Jake Vasquez and Marine Cpl. Rusty Henson are thrown together on a cross-country train trip in less than perfect surroundings. Jake and Rusty initially irritate each other, but soon learn to work togther for common purposes. They encounter Molly, a youngish Indiana country girl running from something, and Gabrielle, a fashionable New York model on her way to break into Hollywood. But something is wrong; someone wants something they may have. Follow their story in the best Agatha Christie Orient Express style. Extensively researched for historical accuracy, it’s a great tale for train buffs, military WWII buffs and fans of boy-girl romantic interaction. Although our heroes are straight arrows, there is a somewhat intense accidental homoerotic scene. Come along for the ride. (BTW, The Navajo is the name of the train.)

Clarissa Simmens
About the Author:

Retired as an Assistant Director of Financial Aid at a Florida community college, I have become a self-published author (what fun!). Growing herbs and experimenting by concocting healing salves and infusions is part of my spiritual life. As a 75% Romani, I learned to create my path, The Drom Ek Romani, from my grandmother, a drabarni, or herbalist, while growing up in Philadelphia. The Way Of One Gypsy, a barely fictionalized memoir, contains the entire Drom Ek Romani, my personal path, and other information about O Jakhalo, the evil eye (CURSES RETURN! NEVER CURSE ANYONE!), and the importance of good nutrition in helping us to fight the sometimes difficult hike on our path. The Gypsy's Book is mainly for Young Adults—or maybe Aging Hippies--and I hope that anyone reading it will come away with a bit of knowledge about the modern Gypsy and the importance of tolerance and love. Drab Lil, A Gypsy's Medicine Book, is a treatise on my philosophy of life: help others when possible. It is a non-fiction account of what commonly is known as a book of shadows. I'm married and live in Florida. My two sons and granddaughter live in Pennsylvania.

Description:

In a small row home, in 1956 South Philly, down in a dirt floor cellar, a drabarni grandmother picks up pieces of wood chips discarded on her husband's worktable. Using a carpenter's pencil she sketches a circle with spokes and hands it to her eight-year-old granddaughter. “Ashok Chakra, Wheel of Origin,” she says. “This is the first step on your path. One day there will be twenty-two of them...”

This book is one Romani's (Gypsy) grimoire, a family compendium about moving along our path in life with a minimum amount of stress. It is not meant to be a guide but it is a slice of life that I hope you will learn from and enjoy.

Drab, in Romanes, means herb and fortune telling. A drabarni is one who can heal with herbs and advise by using cards, tea leaves, dreams and the lines on the palm of the hand. Let's change the word fortune telling because no future is engraved into gold and our past will determine our actions for the future. It is more a holistic way of looking at another's life and prescribing—through the use of herbs and advice—how to cope.

 

When I was about eight, my grandmother drew symbols on small pieces of wood that I have reproduced. She gave me the first five and instructed me to observe life as I grew older and add my own. They could be altered but she hoped I would not commit them to paper (or wood) until I was sure. Although I've been enamored of the tarot most of my life, I discovered that in my mid fifties, the markers and pens found their way to the blank cards I bought and my Drom Ek Romani (the way or path of one Gypsy) was completed, all 22 of them.

 

The main philosophy of my medicine book is written in 22 chapters, each one with the title of the 22 cards, or disks of the Drom Ek Romani. I have tried to show how life often follows each little path as we spiral through it.

 

Also included is information about o jakhalo (the evil eye) and some basic curatives made mainly from kitchen herbs. However, this is not a “how-to” book. We Gypsies traveled, did not have a homeland, and were unable or unwilling to put down roots. So everything was kept simple. I still make dinners where I put the pot of goulash or soup on the table with bowls and spoons and tell all to help themselves, including going into my refrigerator for anything needed. This is my metaphor for not spoon-feeding you. With internet sources and overloads of information, it is almost like I am saying, “Help yourself. Here's the pot of soup, you do the rest. My sustenance is your sustenance and I'm here to start you on your own personal path...”

His daughter Vicki tells of the nearly two weeks of waiting and wondering if they would ever see her father and his co-workers alive after the flooded mine cut them off from the outside world. Faith and calm heads prevail as all but four miners working nearly two miles inside Big Sewell Mountain would eventually make it out alive in what has been described as a miracle.

About the Author:

"Faithful Journey" attempts to reflect the lives and times of Paul, Peter and other well-known apostles in the spread of the gospel. Researching and writing the novel was a personal journey of faith, in helping me better understand the early church and to draw nearer to God and his grace, mercy and love. My hope is that the book will encourage you to study the Bible and it will enrich your own faith in Christ.

Description:

"Faithful Journey" is a unique historical novel based on the Acts of the Apostles in the New Testament of the Bible. The novel hews closely to Luke's account and adds touches of fiction to help you meet the flesh-and-blood people who carried the good news of Christ from Jerusalem to Rome in the first century.  "Faithful Journey" is a modern portrait of the lives and times of people who played roles in this remarkable New Testament odyssey.

Mis versos son verdades incompletas, nacidos en el instante de una mirada entre unos párpados intimidados; una breve aproximación a la forma en la que yacen los brazos apoyados, con el color brillante de un suspiro, a la necesidad de la alegría o la tristeza que guardan los pequeños gestos que apenas se perciben, a las lágrimas de emoción estética ...; emergen como un conocimiento dormido en una idea que despierta.

Helen Wilson
About the Author:

Helen Wilson was born in 1959 to Irish and Scottish parents. Since taking degrees at the universities of Hull and Manchester, she has been a lecturer in Further Education, but only began to write seriously after attending a course at the Hen House in Lincolnshire, and completing an M.A. at Manchester Metropolitan University’s Writing School. Her work has recently been broadcast on local radio and has appeared in a variety of magazines and anthologies including Reactions 2, Muse 3, and Lancashire Life. She lives in the Ribble Valley with her husband and son.

Description:

Intense, tender, and fiercely-felt, the poems in Thoth confront the tensions between past and present. This is territory that Helen Wilson has made her own: a domestic world threaded through with history and myth.

Presided over by the ibis-headed Egyptian god of scribes, who records whether the dead are “ true of voice ”, these are poems which explore the magical properties of words, and the power of stories. Here a mother talks to her son, nuns, queens, crones and concubines speak to us across time; and women invariably have the last word.

Helen Wilson is a writer with compelling tales to tell.

Simon Armitage on “ Mother Love ”:

This is terrific stuff. The poem has a brilliant sense of certainty with the undepleted sureness of the female perspective, the alternative reading of what is otherwise a blood and guts boys’-own story. Excellent.

About the Author:

I am a general practitioner and have had an interest in genetics most of my working life (although I am not directly involved in the subject). I have followed developments in the subject over the years. Like most people, I suppose, I started thinking about my mortality when I hit my forties, and came to the conclusion that ageing is not purely a matter of wear and tear. I thought it very likely that somewhere in the human genome there is a gene or genes that influence ageing. Hence the book! 

Description:

The book is 'faction' i.e the plot is a work of fiction, but the substance of the novel is about genetics. I have researched the subject and taken care to get the facts right. I believe that it is therefore all accurate apart from the 'ageing gene' which is my speculation.

For anyone who might be interested in genetics but knows little about it, I believe this novel to be an interesting and stimulating introduction to the subject.

*****************************************************************************************************************

Like most people, I wanted to document my childhood memories for my kids. Why? When I was a teacher, before I had kids, I used to tell the kids stories from my youth. They loved them and begged for more. Same thing when I had my own kids. I wanted to document these tales, but the problem always came in finding the time and the motivation to actually get around to writing them down.

Since many of my most vivid memories revolved around church, I decided that that was the perfect theme. And I Love to Tell the Story was born. Each chapter is titled with a hymn that reflects its theme. As I delved into the writing, I had a lot of fun reliving the decidedly memorable life I had led as a youth :) . I realized, too, that many aspects of my conservative midwestern upbringing don’t exist anymore in the 21st century. I became nostalgic thinking about the many cultural markers of the 1970s — Lawrence Welk, the Flintstones, heck — even macrame and latch-hook!

Another incentive I had in writing this book was to put out a positive Christian memoir. So many that I read started out fine, but then dissolved into abuse, disillusionment, or even worse. I began to wonder if anyone had grown up in the church and actually enjoyed the experience … surely I wasn’t alone, was I?

Description:

Is it possible to emerge unscathed from an evangelical upbringing? Yes, as surely as David slew Goliath!

I Love to Tell the Story is Susan Barnett Braun’s account of growing up Baptist in a small midwestern town, touching on many cultural icons common to those who came of age in the 1970s. Braun recounts childhood obstacles, which loom as large as the walls of Jericho in her eyes. She encounters a trio of Sunday school mean girls who make King Herod look tame. She worries about being “ugly as sin” due to her chubbiness, glasses, and braces. She’s so consumed with the idea of Jesus’ imminent return that she wonders whether it’s even worthwhile to brush her teeth at night.

Humorous, poignant, and ultimately triumphant, I Love to Tell the Story will stay with readers long after the last Vacation Bible School craft stick cross has fallen apart.

About the Author:

MI nombre es Fernando Sobenes, soy peruano – venezolano, oficial retirado de la Policía Nacional del Perú (Ex Policía de Investigaciones) y abogado, me encanta la lectura y escribir. Creo que mi trabajo es especial porque aborda de manera singular la  conducta del ser humano ante las adversidades y su forma de afrontarlas. Lleva al lector a un punto muy alto de suspenso durante el desenlace de la trama como si fuera una montaña rusa, lo hace de manera ágil y entretenida.  También aborda la manera en que vemos a la figura de Dios, es decir: Como nos la muestra la Iglesia Católica y nos hace pensar un poco más allá de lo que nos han enseñado.  Hace reflexionar a la vez que busca entretener  a quienes disfrutamos de este tipo de novelas: El terror y suspenso están presentes de principio a fin, donde un ser tenebroso, terrible destruye la vida de las personas de manera macabra y sobrenatural. Es una novela que no se puede dejar a un lado y estoy convencido de que logra su cometido.

Description:

Norte de Kuwait 1991 Guerra del Golfo Pérsico; Peter Donovan Teniente del Ejército de los Estados Unidos al mando de un grupo de soldados cae en una emboscada en el desierto de Irak y como consecuencia sucede una masacre. En ese lugar halla un amuleto que guarda en su bolsillo sin saber que encierra un poder oculto y a causa de ello; tiene su primer encuentro aterrador en un sepulcro bajo las arenas del desierto con un ser maligno que lo llevará al umbral de la muerte.

Transcurren varios años luego de estos acontecimientos y Peter, después de abandonar las Fuerzas Armadas, se traslada a un lugar en los Estados Unidos llamado “Lago Feliz” donde se establece y contrae matrimonio formando una familia. Este es un lugar muy bello donde las personas viven felizmente alejadas del estrés de las grandes ciudades. Allí conviven otras tantas que disfrutan del clima, tranquilidad y belleza del lugar que cuenta con un lago y un gran bosque.

Peter se desempeña como Sheriff del pueblo y se reúne con algunos de sus vecinos los fines de semana para compartir en familia. Sus vidas transcurren con tranquilidad y felicidad hasta el día en que se les ocurre jugar con la Tabla Ouija y utilizan el amuleto traído desde el desierto, abriendo sin querer, una entrada para que la maldad llegue a sus vidas; destruyéndolas, sembrando espanto y muerte. Fenómenos paranormales, posesiones espeluznantes y muertes trágicas crean un clima de suspenso y terror a esta obra.
Esta novela aborda el aspecto de la lucha entre el bien y el mal. Uno de los protagonistas, el Padre Josh Carter, lucha contra sus principios y todo lo aprendido en el seminario al darse cuenta que la propia Iglesia se contradice y no acata sus preceptos. Comienza a renegar de su fe y a colocar en tela de juicio a las autoridades del clero y comprueba (muy a su pesar) que ha sido engañado lo cual lo desmorona emocionalmente.

También toca el tema del exorcismo y de la visión que tiene la Iglesia al respecto, así como la manipulación que se hace de estas situaciones. Problemas de índole mental que son utilizadas a conveniencia como métodos de propaganda y captación de fieles. Esta novela atrapa de inmediato al lector y está dedicada a un público adulto, personas que gusten de emociones fuertes y las hacen identificarse con los personajes, sus vivencias, temores, amores y sufrimientos. Es una novela ágil, emocionante y llena de suspenso, que no se puede dejar a un lado, entretiene y mantiene al lector en un constante interés por su desenlace.

About the Author:

At this juncture in my life I have a very strong desire to write a children’s fantasy story. I suppose the desire to write has been lying dormant. When I was a teen I wrote a poem as a classroom assignment and found that I enjoyed creating with words. Over the years I have written poems for my eyes only. I submitted one of my poems in a contest several years ago and it was selected for publication.  “Lonely Heart” published by the International Library of Poetry as a compilation in The Silent Journey

I wrote a short story for one of my daughters when she was around five years old about her backyard adventures. She loved it! Sometimes when my nieces would visit I made up stories to entertain them. I held them capative for a little while telling a story off the top of my head.

Here I am many years later pursuing my passion to write.

Earth Allies is a very good read.  I wrote the story to deliver a message.  The message is love, unity, and compassion. 

Description:

Twelve-year old Ethan decided to take a short-cut home, through the woods, from school after band practice.  While making his way home through the woods Ethan has an experience that he never imagined; he encounters two fairies.  Frightened and confused he runs home.  It wasn’t until his second encounter with the fairies that he learned what they wanted. The fairies explained to him that Gaia/Mother Earth is in danger of being destroyed and they ask Ethan to help them save her. Ethan eventually agrees to help but this is no easy task.  He is faced with several challenges trying to save Gaia/Mother Earth and he has a very short time frame to turn everything around. 

This story is a fantasy, written for youths ages 10-13.  It is warm and heartfelt.  Your child will enjoy reading a wonderful story about fairies and children coming together to save Gaia/Mother Earth.
