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.
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.

I have been a beach girl since I was little. First visiting Florida, where my grandparents had a home and many, many summers on the South Carolina Coast. When I went to college in Washington, D.C., I fell in love with the Delaware seaside town of Rehoboth beach. It’s old fashioned boardwalk and all American vibe has kept me coming back for decades, now with a husband and a teenager, who has spent almost every summer of his life there. I was married on a beach in the west African country of Benin. During my family’s many years living in Zimbabwe, we escaped to Durban or Cape Town any chance we got. Now we live in Rome and I have fallen in love with the Amalfi Coast. Luckily it is a very easy drive from Rome and we have been able to take many trips during our almost a decade living in Italy. I have spent the most time in Positano and Capri, but explore a little more of this incredible part of Italy with each trip south. When I am not enjoying time on the Amalfi Coast, I am in Rome, writing for my blog, helping others with their blogs and social media, working on my other eBook Rome for Expats and tweeting and Instagraming all the beautiful, delicious things I see.
First things first. The Amalfi Coast Travel Essentials Guide is not an exhaustive list of every single town and hotel and restaurant along the entire Amalfi Coast. Instead these are my personal insider tips and picks that I have gathered over many my trips to this bewitching part of the world to help you make the most of your trip to the Amalfi Coast.
The Amalfi Coast Travel Essentials Guide is not just hotels, restaurants and shopping secrets, I will also tell you the best way to get to the Amalfi Coast and where to park when you get there. This guide will help you find the best pizza in Positano, the best shoe store in Capri and the best pastry in Amalfi.
This guide has more than 100 entries to help you avoid tourist traps and travel delays and guide you to the very best the Amalfi Coast has to offer

"I have twenty short stories and three novels in my head!"
For many years, I wanted to write a story about the mass suicide in Jonestown, Guyana. Particularly the role of the Air Force in airlifting the remains back to the United States. I refused to write about it because I thought anything connected with Jonestown should entail one sentence: Guyana was a horrible, horrible event, and the U.S. Military did gruesome things they should never, never had done.
But as time passed, the fact that I never wrote about Guyana became oddly disturbing. If you’re a writer, the assimilation of experiences almost obliges you to write about them. So I wrote Ghost of Guyana.

Lois J. Wetzel was born in Dallas, Texas. She attended Dallas Public Schools, graduating from R. L. Turner High School in Carrollton, which is a Dallas suburb. She earned a BA in art education and and MFA in painting and drawing from the University of North Texas in Denton, Texas. About twenty years later she studied Clinical Psychology and Art Therapy at the University of Houston in Clear Lake City, near Houston. She is the mother of two adult sons and has recently become a grandmother.
Her books are about spirituality, metaphysics, and her mystical experiences, including her frequent experiences of contact from extra-dimensional beings of all kinds. Often, she is channeling information from Lightbeingts. Lois is a highly experienced teacher, healer, medical intuitive, shamanic practitioner, mystic and intuitive counselor. The spiritual realm is what Lois' life is about, and what she writes about. It is a major part of her Soul Contract in this lifetime. It also brings her great joy.
At this time, Lois still does readings from the Akashic Records for clients, intuitive counseling, and has a virtual learning center at her website: Hot Pink Lotus. There you can find free meditations, articles, Lois' radio show, and online classes. She is one of the world's experts in past life readings, and works with people all over the globe in this capacity.
At the website http://www.hotpinklotus.com you can sign up for the free newsletter and be kept abreast of Lois' free teachings, interesting spiritual information, notices of new books, appearances, and her free offerings.
In "Reincarnation: Past Lives and the Akaashic Record" Lois J. Wetzel,MFA, has written the long-awaited sequel to her first book, "Akashic Records: Case Studies of Past Lives." Yet "Reincarnation" takes the reader on a trip to the past like none other. Once again, riveting stories of the past lives of scores of different people are narrated. These lifetimes go back hundreds of thousands of years on Earth, allowing the reader glimpses of long-lost civilizations not contained in our historical record. In this book, unlike the first, the author challenges our ancient history as wrong, giving ample examples of proof we have lived on this swirling ball of minerals for hundreds of thousands of years! She talks about her past life readings for clients, but she also shares some of the spontaneous past life memories which others, including famous people, have had.
The past lives of Lois' clients are shared so that the reader may learn and grow from the experiences of her clients. Naturally, clients' names and identifying information have been changed to protect their privacy. Surprisingly, some readers have said they actually felt some of their own past life issues were resolved as they read about the prior lifetimes of others.
Why learn about our past lives? Isn’t this lifetime enough to handle? Because the whole story of who we are has to do with everything we have experienced. We know that who we are has a lot to do with our childhoods. Why would it not have to do with who we were in our prior lifetimes? Knowing about our past lives allows us to know more fully who we actually are at the level of the Immortal Soul. Why are we terrified of, instantly despise, or immediately adore someone we’ve just met? Why would we avoid visiting a certain location, even though there is no reason? Why do cruise ships or horses terrify us? Why are we so powerfully drawn to bow-hunting, cake decorating, scuba diving, fashion design or sailing having never experimented with it before? Why do some things come so easily people swear we have done it before? Why were we born with these predispositions? Are the answers in past lives?
The author also includes correspondence between the clients and herself before and after the reading was done, so that we can see the client's experience of the reading, and the reaction to the reading and the information which came out of it.
"Reincarnation" also discusses some truly strange concepts, like parallel and overlapping lifetimes, and why it may be possible to be alive in two bodies in different locations on a timeline that overlaps. Or how can we die and come back into the same body, remembering the out-of-body event with conscious awareness of ourselves while not in our bodies?
All these topics and more lie between the pages of this fascinating and compelling book.

As a registered psychotherapist/healer I have observed many different types of behavior as well observing my own self. When first introduced to the topic of the Enneagram and later studying it I was completely amazed at how complete this system is, more so than other personality profiling. The Enneagram helped me tremendously and so my desire is to allow everyone the same freedom of belief...belief in yourself and that you are an amazing human being.
Alchemy of the Archetype Self 2 goes deeper into reflection of personality types based on the Enneagram compared to the first of that title. It also includes astrology characteristics to compare within the self and relationships.
Personality disorder... What a tired and over-used topic, right? However; have you ever heard a story from the perspective of emerged identities? This is a perfect chance to see a picture from the eyes of 'the disease' itself, without ridiculous superhuman abilities and maniacal multiple homicides. A tale of a totally average guy's recently arisen 'dark-side', with an unusual mix of little comedy, many disappointments and Yuri's snow vodka.
Dr. Abernathy has been involved with biological research and
laboratories most of his adult life. He is an avid environmentalist
and is deeply concerned about global warming, pollution, recycling,
and renewable energy sources. He has a number of scholarly
publications as well as patents on environmental friendly processes.
The tower is an incredibly mammoth undertaking involving a remarkable
coalition of private investors and governments. Part space elevator,
part launching pad, the tower is placed on top of Mount Everest for
several reasons: the mountain is one of the tallest peaks in the
world, providing a 29,000 foot platform from which to work. It is the
most famous peak in the world, making it a strategic marketing tool
for attracting both investors and customers. Cities are actually
built within the mountain to help finance the project. As the story
unfolds, the unscrupulous nature of some men is quickly revealed,
coupled with a blatant disregard for a global treasure. Amazing feats
of technology are accomplished which boggle both the mind and
imagination. Loyalties come and go, the end justifies the means, and
the law of unintended consequences always seems to have the final say.

Nicholas' heart is true...and within the splendor of Queen's Palace, it's her exquisite journey to discover that he really is her noble prince charming—is she destined to become his princess?

Captivated by the eerie and a lover of things that go bump-in-the-night, I thoroughly enjoy embracing the fear that resides within. A scary story or movie is always at the top of my list.
Mace of the Apocalypse is my first complete novel which delves into the darkness within all of us. It is meant to shock and repulse at times, but also question who we really are or could become in an atmosphere of pure insanity. There is also a spiritual side to the story, because inside each of us is a struggle to come to terms with the true meaning of our existence.

The enemy is everywhere. The enemy is within. The zombie apocalypse has arrived.
When Susan Moore Jordan was a high school student in the mid nineteen-fifties in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, a close friend went through a shattering event just as she was preparing to audition for the high school’s annual musical. Decades later Jordan used that experience of tragedy to triumph to write her first novel, How I Grew Up, in 2013. Two additional novels followed: Eli’s Heart in 2014 and You Are My Song in 2015, completing “The Carousel Trilogy.” A fourth novel, Jamie’s Children, was released in July, 2016.
Memories of Jake, the first book in a two-part series set during the Vietnam War era, was released in March, 2017, followed by Man with No Yesterdays in November, 2017. All of Jordan's novels are drawn from her life experiences as a voice teacher and stage director and are inspired by real people she has encountered.
Jordan attended the College-Conservatory of Music in Cincinnati and moved to the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania in 1971 with her late husband and three young children, where she established a private voice studio in 1979. Her students have gone on to leading schools of music and opera or musical theater companies around the world.
Beginning in 1984, Jordan directed some eighty local community and high school musical theater productions. She retired from directing in 2015 after over thirty years and wrote about her adventures in “More Fog, Please”: Thirty-One Years Directing Community and High School Musicals, released in November, 2015.
All of her books are available on Amazon in paperback, and the novels are also available as Kindle editions. Paperback copies of Jordan’s books can be purchased locally at the Pocono Cinema and Community Center in East Stroudsburg whenever the theater is open.

Song of the Canyon Kid is my second novel and my first full-blown comedy. My previous works were the road rage novel Red Asphalt, a true travel tale called Please Hold Thumbs and my movie memoir In the Dark.
This one is a total cartoon. The main character is a singing cowboy. What is the last book you hummed? The characters are intentionally over-the-top and the entire tone is a sweet parody, an homage to the B-movies westerns of yesteryear. And in full disclosure, it's also a novelization. I based this novel on my comic melodramatic play entitled Song of the Lone Prairie or Poem on the Range. Prairie debuted in 1987 at the late, great Pollardville Palace Showboat Theater in Stockton, California, a production I also directed.
Pollardville was a magical place. We had the theater that specialized in melodrama and vaudeville. On the same property was a western ghost town that housed movie sets from the William Wyler film The Big Country. This is where we'd get paid to play cowboy on the weekends, duties that included robbing the train, engaging in fisticuffs and shooting it out with fellow gunslingers at High Noon. Pollardville was the birthplace of The Canyon Kid.
I realize the stigma of a novelization, but I felt creatively stagnated and needed an writing exercise to get myself in gear. Digging through my old writings, I came across his script for Lone Prairie. a melodrama I consider to be the culmination of everythin I learned at Pollardville. Adapting it into novel form came fairly easy, fleshing ot the characters and transposing the stage direction into prose. Soon, it took on a life of its own and I was hooked.
I loved revisiting my old characters like Nastassia Kinky and her brother Two Gun Boris, the fastest gun this side of the Ukraine. I also made The Kid's horse, Thunder, more of a supporting character. And the love story is something I never I thought I was capable of pulling off, but I feel like I did.
Overall I had a blast with this, the most fun I've had with a project since I wrote the original back in the '80's. Song of the Canyon Kid has given me back the joy of writing. By returning to my roots, I found that in order to move forward, sometimes you can go home home again.

Be it ever so hostile, there's no place like home.
When a straight-shooting, guitar-strumming singing cowboy known as The Canyon Kid returns to Dirt Clod, Missouri, he finds his hometown in ruins due to the machinations of a corrupt "hanging judge" named Basil Kadaver. With the help of his co-horts, a slinky seductress named Nastassia Kinky, owner of The Golden Goulash Saloon, and her brother, Two Gun Boris, the Judge has the town in his tyrannical grip and is beginning to squeeze. To make matters worse for The Kid, he also discovers that his childhood sweetheart, Darla Darling, is engaged to his sworn enemy, a desperado nicknamed "The Bushwhacker" who is now the town sheriff. How is The Canyon Kid going to save the day, let alone croon a few tunes, with a noose around his neck?
Song of the Canyon Kid is a wild and wooly western comedy romance that'll put a smile on your face and a song in your heart. It may even make you say "Yee-haw!"
