Every day you’re driven nuts by the people around you making common sense errors and irrational decisions. Imagine what life would look like if you didn’t have to waste time and energy dealing with stubborn, clueless, argumentative, defensive, or apathetic coworkers! Thank goodness Eric Bailey translates decades of brain science research into every-day language, helping you break through common communication barriers that will improve every relationship in your life. Whether you work in the executive suite or on the front-line, this book will teach you how to cure the stupidity all around you.


My Thoughts

If I were a manager intoday's corporate world, I would make reading this book mandatory as part of training. I think that watching a course from Eric M. Bailey or having him as a speaker would be the most beneficial, but I think simply reading this book could cut down on so many daily issues that arise simply from the lack of communicating properly. 

I love the way Eric writes in a no nonsense way while also teaching us in a simplified manner. I think that is very necessary. 

Read this TODAY!

About the Author

 I wrote this story “If I Could Run” to tell my experience of being bullied when I was a Sophomore/Junior in high school in 1958/59. It was such a humiliating, depressing and agonizing time in my life. I can remember it so clearly 60 years later. Bullying is still so active in today`s society. However, I believe it is even worse with social media being so available. When I was going through my bullying experience, I could at least find peace and security at my home after school and on weekends. Now, social media allows a person to be bullied twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. My story tells how I was able to get through this horrible experience.

A movie producer picked up my story and together we produced the movie. Because we had the opportunity to have an up and coming young female star play the lead role, I changed the main character to be female instead of male. The movie is filmed on my farm, at my high school and in my town where the actual bullying occurred so many years ago. We entered it in film festivals around the country and it was received very positively, winning many prestigious awards.

Book Tour & Book Review with a #giveaway: Whiskey Everything by @ryanringbloom #review #blogtour #romance #contemporary #romcom #romanticcomedy #review @RABTBookTours



The Whiskey Series
RomCom
Date Published: September 1st 2019

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png


Four books. Four whiskey-fueled romances.


Dick: Nothing like this has ever happened to me before. It's a fluke. Too much whiskey. Believe me when I say, it will NEVER happen again.

I’m trying not to take it personally. Sh*t happens. It’s not a reflection on me. He claims it was too much whiskey. A one time occurrence. And I believe him.

But then why the hell does it happen a second time?



Chick: Nothing like this has ever happened to me before. It's a fluke. Too much whiskey. Believe me when I say, it will NEVER happen again.

I’m trying not to take it personally. Sh*t happens. It was a blind date. She drank too much whiskey. I hope it wasn’t a reflection on me.

Okay, so the first date didn't work out. But what happens when the second one doesn’t either?



Trick: Everything usually goes my way. Life’s good. But after a bad breakup, a few problems emerge that I need help fixing.

He has problems all right. Sure, I’ll help. Just because I’m unlucky in love doesn’t mean the next girl should be too.

But maybe those problems aren’t so bad after all?



Flick: Everything usually goes my way. Life’s good. But after a bad breakup, a big secret unfolds that no one can ever know.

She has a secret all right. Sure, I’ll keep it. Just because we can’t tell anyone doesn’t mean we can't make it work.

But maybe some secrets do need to come out?

*F/F Romance




Review

Well, I love it all. These covers are all so appealing and so are the blurbs. How can you not want to dive right in. Grab a glass of wine or something stronger and get to reading ASAP, you wont regret it! 

I love the light and airy way in which these are written. So much humor and plenty of laughs along the way.

 The characters all have plenty of depth and allow the reader to want to connect to them right away. You get to get to know little bits about characters in earlier books and more about them later on. I love series like that! 

Sometimes I just need happy with built in laughs and Ryan Ringbloom delivers with each and every one of these. Don't let me fool you, there is drama and angst along the way as well. 




About the Author

Hi, I’m Ryan Ringbloom, a Jersey girl who doesn’t write Alphas. I couldn’t if I tried. Social Media stresses me the frick out, yet I can’t seem to walk away from it. I love to binge watch TV. I think cats are awesome. I’m obsessed with coffee and Fireball. But never together. I am counting down the days until self-driving cars are the norm. And if there is ever a zombie apocalypse, I won’t even try to run. I will let the first one I see eat my brain and get it over with.

Pray Like a Pro is an incredible prayer tool in the hands of every believer from the beginner to the seasoned prayer intercessor. There is no greater prayer example to follow than the prayer that Jesus, Himself, prayed and then gave to His disciples. The Lord's Prayer is more than a prayer to recite. It is an in-depth study of strategic and effective communication that combined with faith will produce phenomenal results. Pray Like A Pro encourages intimacy with a Heavenly Father that loves us and cares for us daily. When we understand our relationship with God and learn how to effectively communicate with Him, then prayer is no longer a ritual or duty. Instead, prayer becomes an anticipated visit with a loved one that produces miraculous powerful results and infinite joy! This prayer study of The Lord's Prayer easily and thoroughly instructs the reader on how to Pray Like A Pro.

Book Tour & Book Review with a #giveaway: Asylum Road by James L. Weaver #crime #thriller #blogtour #rabtbooktours #review #asylumroad @RABTBookTours @jlweaverbooks

BOOK # 4 in the JAKE CALDWELL SERIES

Crime Thriller
Publisher: Lakewater Press
Published Date: October 1, 2019
 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png


A vengeful drug lord. A vicious biker gang. A beautiful victim of a trafficking ring.

Nearly two years ago, former mafia leg-breaker Jake Caldwell had ruthless drug king Shane Langston staring down the wrong end of a pistol. Instead of pulling the trigger, Jake let the law handle it. Now Langston’s escaped from prison and is hell bent on killing the men who put him there—including their families.

As the body count rises, Jake and his best friend Sheriff “Bear” Parley follow the bloody clues and realize it’s not just Shane they need to stop. Jake will do whatever he can to protect the people he loves.

The fourth instalment of the award-winning Jake Caldwell series will have you biting your nails and praying you never have to make the trip to Asylum Road.



My Thoughts

Sometimes I get to a point where I feel bogged down in a certain genre and need a change. That is when a Mystery or Thriller is always my go-to. I feel like they make me think and help get my mind off of things more than any other genre.

There is a great balance between the characters, their life, and the suspense/thriller aspect. The themes with bikers and drug lords and trafficking are dark, but very real to the world these days. 

The plot was fast paced and flowed smoothly and the characters were those who I really liked reading about. They were interesting and compelling. 

I have not read any other books by James L. Weaver, but definitely find myself needing to download some more ASAP!

Praise for Son of Thunder:

"This is an exceptionally well-crafted and well-researched novel. Even though I haven’t read the previous novel in the series, I had no trouble becoming invested in the story and getting involved in the protagonists’ lives. I enjoyed the connection between Esther and Bastiann and how they seemed to balance each other out. While Esther is a firecracker, Bastiann is the calm soul that brings her back to earth while helping her fly. I also enjoyed how Esther seemed to bring a lot to the story. From her quirky personality to her great sense of humor, she made things work while having a grand time. The development of the story was great, the plot was incredibly rich and the characters were super entertaining. It is a great story and I cannot wait for more." - 5 Stars, Readers' Favorite

Esther Brookstone’s life is at a crossroads. A Scotland Yard inspector who specializes in stolen art, she’s reluctantly considering retirement.

Decisions are put on hold while she and Bastiann set out to thwart a neo-Nazi conspiracy financed in part by artworks stolen during World War II. Among the stolen art is the masterpiece “An Angel with Titus’ Features,” a work Esther obsesses about recovering.

The case sends the intrepid pair on an international hunt spanning several European countries and the Amazon jungle. Evading capture and thwarting death, Esther and Bastiann prove time and again that adrenaline-spiked adventures aren’t just for the young.
