About the Book

Was it the accumulated wounds to the environment that had finally triggered the nanotech plague or was it simply one more step in a shrewdly crafted plan to replace us with humans 2.0? As I write this at least one pair of these transhumans breathe the same air as us, and there are likely many more. They may look like us, they may even be almost human, but they are also cybernetic and will live for an extraordinary length of time. Trust me, their goals are not the same as ours. It was not a natural plague that almost drove humankind to extinction but an attack from within, turning our own biology against us. Scientists discovered all too late an artificial entity, a sentient machine foolishly created in the image of god, had been studying us and genetically altering us for longer than we can imagine. Perhaps it is because of this god-machine that we evolved into creatures who can think and speak and know our own mortality? This silicon god is so different from us that we may never truly understand it, but what we do know is that it is terrifyingly intelligent and it hates us. What we do know is that it tried to eradicate us from the face of our planet and then stopped for no discernible reason. What we do know is that its work is not done.

Author Interview: Emilia Rutigliano of the Layers of Veronica series

Emilia RutiglianoOur guest today is Emilia Rutigliano author of the Women’s Contemporary Fiction, Layers of Veronica Book Series.

What made you decide to become a published author?

I’m a good storyteller, so I told good stories.  Friends started passing the stories around, but the format of Word documents, blogs and converted files was becoming tedious… Kindle Direct Publishing came to the rescue.

Would you consider your latest book series, Layers of Veronica, to be a one of a kind?  How so?

Layers is different in that it wasn’t targeted to the main-stream, and yet regardless of who you are, you recognize a part of yourself in every character.  It is a mix of “it could happen” and “it DID happen” in such a way that you want to be part of that world.  The reason the book series stands out is that it doesn’t go in one direction and with only one guide, thus the layer theory.  In each situation there is character growth as a parent, a lover, an entrepreneur, a philanthropist and as a friend.

Napoleon 7Where is your writing sanctuary?

LOL.  My writing sanctuary is anywhere I can sit down with a laptop.  If there is internet, well then I’m in Shangri-la.  I write sitting in my car waiting for my kids to finish their extracurricular activities, in court waiting for assignment to see a judge and in front of the TV with my family.  The story is usually already written in my head,  I just need to get the words on the screen.

What do you believe a writer should not do as far as getting his or her book published?

Do NOT follow the tried and true.  There is no such thing for a writer.  Just because ‘it’ worked for so and so, it may not work for you.  Do get yourself educated in everything there is out there.  There is a plethora of information… but you don’t need to take every one of those roads.  Also, if you believe in your work and there is no traditional publisher willing to give you the attention, start with self-publishing.  The cost is minimal.  It’s definitely a good “start.”

What is one thing you learned about your book after it was published?

I was shocked to find the demographic attracted to the book.  I though the book would only be popular with the 35-40-year-ol NYC immigrants. I was absolutely wrong.  Veronica intrigues and inspires people all over the world, and of all ages.  Women in their 50s, 60s and 70s have written to me to let me know the book is exactly what they were waiting for.  I have never been so happy to be wrong.

Did any real life experiences find their way into your book?

Absolutely.  The book is fiction through and through, but it is also a scrapbook/journal of my own experiences in the world… particularly with people I know and the places I’ve visited.  Because my main point was to develop characters that were credible, I gave them all backgrounds of people I know.  Veronica, for example, has my history.  It isn’t a memoir or an autobiography, but if I did it, ate it or experienced it… Veronica was able to draw from those experiences.

Aside from writing, what’s your passion?

I like traveling and seeing different cultures.  I love watching people interact.  My husband laughs that if he leaves me alone for ten minutes someplace, I’ll usually strike up a conversation with someone nearby – regardless of which continent I am on or what language the conversation would be in.  I also enjoy all the other ambits of my life – I’m a wife, a mom, a trial attorney and a friend.  Each of the layers is my passion.  I enjoy them all.

What’s next for you?

More traveling, more writing, more living… While the last two books of Layers of Veronica are receiving some TLC at the editor’s, I’m working on another book series called Alexandra’s Order.  There’s a lot of research and fun to be head before the book is completed.  There’s also a lot of living to do.  J

About the Book:

They say that when a student is ready, a teacher appears.

What they don’t say is where to register, and how to matriculate in that teacher’s class.

That is a divine gift.

Veronica had it all:  the looks; the brains; the personality; and the wardrobe.  Not to mention a perfect husband, a fabulous career and two adorable children, until the perfect husband leaves her for another woman.

Thus begin the daily routines of a typical New York City immigrant with ambition whose teachers keep appearing, and for whom divine interventions keep affording new opportunities.

Though it starts like ordinary connections going through the tried and true, each relationship continues to delve into parts of her own universe that Veronica didn’t know existed.  A universe that is suddenly open to her.

This is a different kind of heroine…

Welcome to the New American Dream, Dare to Dream…

Title:
 The Silent Immigrants

Author: Boniface Nwugwo

Genre: Inspirational Memoir

Publisher: AuthorHouse

Pages: 378

Language: English

ISBN-13: 978-1-49180-508-4

When Boniface Nwugwo left his hometown in Eastern Nigeria in 1980 to study in America, he had only $4600 to his name for his tuition, his faith in God and an unquenchable thirst to succeed in America. In this revealing, inspiring and compelling memoir, Boniface with uncompromising candor, tells his story of courage, insurmountable struggles, and triumphs that he and many West African immigrants faced before and after coming to America demonstrating that you can reach your dreams if you persevere.

From modest beginnings as the son of a teacher in his native Imo State of Nigeria, Boniface Nwugwo overcame poverty to distinguish himself as a brilliant academic and achieve a respectable career in the information technology industry.

Through his story and the sample stories of other West African immigrants, America’s promise as land of immigrants with infinite possibilities are rekindled in this self-revealing and self-fulfilling book.

ABOUT BONIFACE NWUGWO

Boniface Chibuzo Nwugwo was born on February 16, 1960 at Alaenyi Ogwa, in the Mbaitoli Local Government Area (LGA) of Imo State (part of what was the Eastern Region) of Nigeria. Popularly known as B.C. (as his parents refer to their children by their initials), he is the third of nine children born to Juliana and Christian Onwezi Nwugwo. His father, a retired elementary school headmaster, and his mother, a retired seamstress, live part-time in the United States, and part-time in Nigeria.

Boniface attended different elementary schools in Mbaitoli LGA due to the fact that his father as a teacher moved from school to school. He attended Obazu Community Grammar School Mbieri in Mbaitoli LGA of Imo State, graduating in 1978. After graduation from secondary school he spent 18 months working for First Bank of Nigeria while waiting to gain admission into a university. After almost two years of waiting, he travelled to America to pursue his post-secondary education even though he did not have all the resources required to make such a trip.

From the second month of his freshman year at the State University of New York at Brockport, he started working for the school’s Shipping & Receiving Department until his graduation. He graduated from the State University of New York at Brockport in 1984, with a B.S. in Computer Science. He found a job in Rochester New York and continued to pursue higher learning while working full-time, earning a Master of Public Administration in information management systems from State University of New York at Brockport in 1987, and a Master of Science in software development & management from Rochester Institute of Technology in 1989.

In 1995 he relocated with his wife to the Washington DC area. He continued to work and go to school until 2003 when he completed a PhD program in information technology management from Capella University, Minneapolis/St Paul Minnesota. Boniface and his wife and their four children live in Maryland.

Boniface now runs an Information Technology Consulting business he founded in 2005. Boniface is also IEEE Senior member and member of the IEEE Computer Society and Past Chair of the IEEE Computer Society, Baltimore Chapter. He lives in Maryland with his wife Francisca and their four children – Brian, Allen, Jaine and Denzel.

Eight days before Halloween, two strangers drive into the tiny town of Dunes, Michigan, in the middle of the night. After marking various locations on a map of the town, the two men take up residence on Willows Drive in the abandoned Kalaski Mansion.

At the nearby assisted living home, eighteen-year-old Greg Snow, who lives across from the Kalaski Mansion, helps decorate for Halloween. When he returns home, the two men—called Kasper and Ghoul—react strangely to the boy. They look at him as though he’s the spook in town. Their curious reaction makes Greg wonder what these men are up to. He shares his worries with his friends, and they soon make the acquaintance of a glowing orb named Rebecca, who tells them Kasper and Ghoul are there to destroy the town.

The new arrivals are in Dunes to seek the revenge for past slights. Their intention is to find the one person who stopped the process when they were last in town and destroy him and his family. Greg and his friends are willing to fight for their town—but Greg has no idea that he has a close family connection to the mysterious men.

Hypothyroidism, Health and Happiness by Dr. Steven Hotze Book Feature – Win Prizes

 
 

ABOUT HYPOTHYROIDISM, HEALTH AND HAPPINESS

Have you ever thought to yourself, “I think I might have a thyroid problem. I’m tired all the time, no matter how much I exercise, I can’t seem to lose weight, my hair’s falling out, and overall I just feel blah.” If so, it is essential that you explore the very real possibility that indeed, you do have hypothyroidism. In Hypothyroidism, Health & Happiness, Dr. Steven Hotze reveals how commonly hypothyroidism is overlooked, misdiagnosed, and mistreated in women and men, and gives you just the information you need to prepare yourself to obtain help.

 Too often, individuals with all the signs of low thyroid are prevented from accessing the simple, inexpensive and effective treatment for hypothyroidism. Instead, they are told their blood work is “normal.” Find out why they owe it to themselves to believe what their bodies are telling them, rather than the results of their blood tests.

 Dr. Hotze has been on a mission to get this message into the hands of women and men, particularly those in midlife, for more than 20 years. The answers you will find in this book about the signs, symptoms and treatment of low thyroid conditions are no longer a part of the conventional medical approach to hypothyroidism.

 Inside, you will learn:

 The historical basis for identifying and treating hypothyroidism

Underlying causes of hypothyroidism

Clinical signs and symptoms that may mean you have hypothyroidism

The little-used thyroid blood test that identifies thyroid disorders in spite of a “normal” TSH

Other individuals just like you who are now healthy, well, and thriving Simple at-home test you can do as a starting point towards discovering if you have low thyroid And more Dr. Hotze has a saying, “If you are sick and tired of being sick and tired, then you owe it to yourself to take charge of your health and get your life back.” By arming yourself with the information in this book you can take the first step towards restoring your health, transforming your life and improving your world.

ABOUT DR. STEVEN HOTZE

Steven F. Hotze, M.D., is the founder and CEO of the Hotze Health & Wellness Center, Physician’s Preference and Hotze Pharmacy. His goal is to change the way women and men are treated in midlife through the use of bioidentical hormone therapy. His 8-Point Treatment Regimen has helped thousands of individuals to get on a path of health and wellness and enjoy a better quality of life in an environment of extraordinary hospitality and guest service.

 Dr. Hotze is the author of the book, “Hormones, Health, and Happiness”. In it he describes his journey from using pharmaceutical drugs to actively listening to his patients and treating the root cause of their symptoms through natural approaches. “For an acute illness, such as strep throat or a sinus infection, the drug approach may be appropriate. However, few patients with chronic ailments ever really get well by taking drugs.

How can they? Chronic illness and disease are not caused by deficiencies of prescription drugs.”

Suzanne Somers dedicated an entire chapter to Dr. Hotze in her New York Times best seller, “Breakthrough”. “This Texan doctor is going to steal your heart,” writes Somers. “He has so much energy he can’t wait to get to his office each day. He has built up a practice that is the envy of doctors everywhere.

Dr. Hotze has appeared on hundreds of television and radio shows across the nation, including ABC, NBC, CBS, and FOX affiliates, and CBS’ The Morning Show. He is also a regular guest on the KHOU Channel 11 morning program, Great Day Houston.

Johnny Gora by John Goodale Book Blast – Win a $25 Amazon Gift Card!


ABOUT JOHNNY GORA


Title: Johnny Gora

Genre: Biography/Memoir

Author: John Goodale

Publisher: iUniverse

Pages: 194

Language: English

Format: Ebook

Have you ever had your life fall apart, or felt you were on the verge of oblivion and wonder if there were any glimmers of hope ahead? If you’re human, it’s likely that has happened to you at least once. During those times, it may seem like nothing good will ever come your way again.

John Goodale felt that way. In his memoir, Johnny Gora, Goodale tells how he watched his entire life crumble. His story begins with growing up in a middle-class home and then embarking on a life of self-delusion, booze and rock n roll in a vain attempt to become a rock star. As that dream died, John found himself in a failed marriage that tore his whole life apart. But when life was at its lowest, he met a new woman—his future wife—and embarked on a humorous crash course in a culture and tradition he grew up around but never really understood.

Johnny Gora shows that humor can be found even when things seem the darkest. It may be difficult to see at the time, but as Goodale shows, distance can provide insight into all life’s experiences.

ABOUT JOHN GOODALE

John Goodale is a professional chef and the father of two children. He and his wife, Farhat Qureshi, reside in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, with their two lazy, codependent cats. Johnny Gora is based on his memories of his life experiences.

This book is written by an eighty six yer old recent widower. The poems and Musings are here to show that age does not diminish love and romance.

Romance
Romance the greatest mental
Gift to mankind.
 Yes I said it.
What more wonderful than the
Overwhelming feeling of love.
To be able to be near
And to
Smell the scent, to caress the tresses, to
gently hold a hand,
This is rapture at its acme.
When there are times that I
Am
Alone without you the seconds
Go painfully slow.
To espy you
Again is as if the heavens have
Brought forth the shining sun.
The flowers bloom in all their
Radiance and aromas.
To be in love is all.
This is a reality made
In heaven.
