This guided journal for creative self-expression allows teens to explore emotions, create art, and envision life’s possibilities.

 

Dream Up Now™ offers a safe space for creative self-expression of all emotions, both positive and negative. Every emotion is valid in this journal, and teens are encouraged to move from dark (negative) to light (positive) emotions. For example:

From tired to fired up

From confused to confident

From jealous to appreciative

From loss to peace


To help teens understand, manage, and channel their emotions into passion for the life they want to live, this guided journal with a convenient lay-flat design includes 36 activities for creative self-expression. Crafted by community leaders across North America, these activities encourage teens to create, draw, listen to music, and put pen to paper as they process emotions, discover more about themselves, and pursue what they want out of life.

Using simple journal prompts and art project ideas, with plenty of room for writing and reflection, Dream Up Now is a powerful tool for navigating emotions and creative self-expression. A digital leadership guide includes information to help teens advocate for school music programs, find their passion, and start a club in their school.

Releasing April 2022

photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

 

This book takes you on an adventure of personal development through the detective work of Creative Kinesiology.  Muscle testing gives us the powerful tool we need to delve into any problem. It allows the body to show us what is going on physically, emotionally and in our feelings, with the mind and the spiritual self. Using maps of the body, subtle energies and clues to the problem gives the tracker the direction of healing.  Working creatively with the person and their intent for healing gives us all we need for healing and inner work to begin and continue. We look at the way the latest discoveries from the scientific world add new perspectives on the way the body systems work – or don’t.  Plumbing the depths of our being takes us to the reasons for our stress and anxiety – the traumas, large and small that can create problems in any part of us, including the digestive system, the brain and the nervous system. We may have lost our ability to look forward and reach for our visions and dreams. Help is there for us; in the exercises and techniques we can use for ourselves; some are introduced in the book.  Increasing our awareness of the body’s messages can give us the healing impetus to help ourselves and can take us to practitioners, both in the natural health world and in the medical profession.


Discover this gentle and powerful approach to healing and health for yourself as you read the book – a healing journey in itself.

Paranormal Erotica

Date Published: April 6, 2022

Publisher: Mindstir Media


It's letting yourself feel every feeling. It's fulfillment and satisfaction mixed with yearning for more...

I couldn't imagine switching places with her. I had wanted to at first. When we met, I was so envious of her freedom and fire. She could do whatever she wanted, whenever she wanted. She didn't have anything or anyone holding her back. She was encouraged to be naughty. She danced with fire and never got burned, ever.

Esha is the Demon of Desire. Rachel is a happily married mom of two with an office job, a gorgeous husband, and an insatiable need for more. More everything. Join Esha as she helps Rachel discover and embrace her true self. Is evil really evil? Is good really good? Will the blaze inside Rachel eventually be her undoing or is it just the beginning of something she could have never imagined?

Although Mel grew up in Vacationland, she never really started exploring the world around her until adulthood. A true Pisces at heart, she enjoys the Maine coast where the water and gentle breeze revitalize her soul and inspire her to write. She would like to thank her husband for being her partner in crime, and for his constant support and determination to see her live her dreams.

Book Tour & Book Review: Leading the Lost Boys by Paulino Mamiir Chol #blogtour #bookreview #giveaway #memoir #nonfiction #rabtbooktours @RABTBookTours

 


 

The Untold Journey


Memoir

Date Published: June 22, 2021

Publisher: Mamiir Chol Foundation


photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

As a member of the Lost Boys of South Sudan, author Paulino Mamiir Chol offers the gripping account of his transformation from a kidnapping survivor to a leader— Mr. Chol led over 700 boys across three African countries.

Paulino Mamiir Chol was abducted from his family, in the Twic County of Warrap state. Over the course of seventeen harrowing years, he survived Ethiopian and Kenyan refugee camps, and eventually made it to Denver, Colorado, in the United States of America, where he now pursues a PhD.

In detailing the journeys of the Lost Boys, as well as the murderous actions of the Murahalin Militia before and after the Second Sudanese Civil War, Mr. Chol paints a vivid picture of one of modern history’s most horrific human rights abuses. In so doing, he also offers hope in the power of the human spirit to overcome trauma and tragedy—especially when we focus on serving others.

Leading The Lost Boys: The Untold Journey is part of Paulino Mamiir Chol’s effort to fight the inhuman darkness we are all capable of, and to empower and inspire the hearts of those suffering.

 

All proceeds will go to the Mamiir Chol Foundation (MACH), which will provide funds to villagers in Twic County for clean drinking wells, clinics, schools, and community centers. Proceeds will also support organizations working for human rights, homeless children, widowed mothers, disabled people, and to protect women and girls from sexual abuse, exploitation and gender-based violence.




Review
An amazing story which speaks of the Author’s resilience and bravery. It is full of surprise, suspense and discovery while giving us insight and history into a world and a time we don't know a lot about. You won’t want to put it down.

Colette’s a sweet angel in need of saving, and like it or not, I have a hero complex. Marrying her seems like the right thing to do. Then my sometimes lover, Aidan, finds us together. The hurt in his eyes nearly guts me.

My club knows I’m bisexual. I’ve not hidden it from them. Doesn’t mean I’ve flaunted it in their faces either. So when I decided to claim Aidan and Colette, I’m not sure how it’s going to end. All I know is they both need me, and I need them too.

With human traffickers after Colette, a possible traitor in the club, and more chaos than I can handle, I do the only thing I can… I run with my new wife and husband. Once I figure out who wants Colette, I’ll do whatever it takes to destroy them. Until then, I’ll keep her safe, and Aidan too. Because they both mean more to me than I realized.

 

WARNING: Surge is part of the Hades Abyss MC series and contains bad language, violence, and content some readers may find difficult to read. Yes, Surge is bisexual, and therefore there are sexual situations involving Male-Female, Male-Male, Male-Female-Male, and Male-Male-Female sex.

Book Blitz: Are We Really Biochemical Robots? #promo #nonfiction #rabtbooktours @RABTBookTours @MKWebsiteandSEO

 

 

Sam Harris' Crusade Against Free Will


Nonfiction

Date Published: March 19, 2022

Publisher: Biochemical Press

 

photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

 

It's the 10th anniversary of Sam Harris' Free Will, one of the most popular books of the past decade written on the free will debate. Harris' well-deserved reputation as an author, intellectual, and social commentator has afforded Free Will exposure that books on the subject rarely enjoy. The 10th anniversary of its publication makes the timing right for a no-holds-barred critique of determinism and Free Will's take on determinist doctrine. The moral implications of the free will debate have gained renewed urgency from scientific findings that the belief in determinism leads to cheating, aggression, and other immoral conduct. Are We Really Biochemical Robots? delivers an unsparing blow to determinism and its circular premises, reliance on selective evidence, and moral equivalency.


Topics include:

Why science findings claiming to support determinism do nothing of the kind.

Why determinism's number one premise, causation, is conceptually and scientifically unsound.

Why relativity theory and quantum mechanics laid determinism to rest decades ago.

Why moral and personal responsibility can't exist in a causal universe.

Why determinism renders our criminal justice system useless.


In perhaps its most unique contribution, Biochemical Robots reaches beyond the confines of Free Will's discussion to expose the fundamental flaw at the heart of determinist doctrine – the self-contradictory nature of determinist truth claims. Determinism receives its final coup de grĂ¢ce in Biochemical Robots' closing pages. The reign of causation is given a eulogy that's long overdue.

Book Tour & Book Review: Scarlett's Web by Bree McKennedy #blogtour #bookreview #newadult #romance #giveaway #rabtbooktours @RABTBooktours

 



New Adult Romance

Date Published 05-03-2021

  

Scarlett Camden met her Prince Charming-Harvard bound, Michael, the first week of her sophomore year. Her life went from less than mediocre to something resembling epic. With her new best friend, Jade's help, she managed to transform from the quiet girl no one remembered to the most-envied girl at their private school, Philips Kimball Academy. But things took unexpected turns.

Looks were more than deceiving. Life became unpredictable and unchangeable.

What happened behind closed doors and away from intrusive eyes was anything but the fairytale everyone assumed she was living.

Years later, her past collides with her present life. Once again, her world gets thrown into a whirlwind filled with painful memories, unforgivable crimes of lust, and the loss of hope. Devastation and regrets.

This is the story of first love and loss. Lies and lust weaved into a web too big to escape.

Will Scarlett's web of lies keep her terminally trapped by her committed sins when she was practically a child, or will forgiveness grant her a happy ever ending filled?

 

 




Review

This was an angsty and raw read about the characters past and present and how they collide and how they affect each other and their relationship together.

I never wanted this book to end and at the same time, I couldn't flip the pages fast enough to find out how the story would unfold!

For me, this was a great example of overcoming past mistakes and situations and living in the now. The whirlwind romance, the heart ache, the numb, and the rebirth. Ups and downs and plenty of drama along the way. 


  About the Author

Bree McKennedy is the pseudonym of a published author that wanted to break out of the cookie cutter world she was writing in. After completing a BDSM trilogy and being begged to continue on, she had to take a mental break. She looked around and saw misery and good intentions that led people straight to the gates of hell. After waking up in the middle of the night, from a dream, the character of Addison evolved.

Bree is happily married to a wonderful and loving man. They have two children and an overly mothering cat. She spends her days with psychiatric patients among the gamut. Her first love will always be healing the sick, nurturing the wounded and showing compassion in the field of nursing. At night, she taps keys on a keyboard or puts a pen to paper creating story lines that will pull someone in on an emotional level.

Bree is a self-proclaimed "lover of the dark and tragic."

Book Tour & Book Review: The Order of the Fallen by Jacqueline Marinaro #blogtour #bookreview #fantasy #romance #rabtbooktours @RABTBookTours


Fantasy/Romance

Date Published: Jan. 24, 2022

Publisher: Jan-Carol Publishing, Inc.



Achaiah knew the dangers of falling to earth for the love of his human, Nev. When Nev falls for her guardian angel, Achaiah, she is unaware of the danger that their love puts her in. That's why fallen angels have one rule: Never fall in love with a human.




Review
This was such a hard book to put down. The story is intense and brilliant in so many ways.
I was captivated by The Order of the Fallen and with both Achaiah and Nev's journey... I am absolutely spellbound!
Jacqueline Marinaro has managed to impress me with her writing, imagery, wit, and compelling characters. It's a wonderful read. 


About the Author

Jacqueline Marinaro began her career as a therapist and college educator. Graduate school couldn’t stamp out her love of creative writing, however. Much to the chagrin of her husband, graduate school also only furthered her ability to constantly ask, “how does that make you feel?” Jacqueline lives in Florida with her wonderful husband and sweet little boy, where she enjoys the beach, reading, writing, and of course delving into the feelings of everyone she meets.

About the Author

Nathalie Koren’s 'Your Maternity Leave: The Ultimate Practical Guide, UK edition', was first published in 2021.

In her first book, Nathalie wanted to provide the information she never received and had to research herself (having written this book during her own maternity leave), saving a lot of time and effort for other women in the UK.

Whether you have just found out you are pregnant or have already started your maternity leave, this book will help you trust your instincts, energise and also inspire you. It will help you to be confident and informed.

In her work as a Head of execution and delivery, Nathalie is renowned for bringing complex issues to life, with practical tips and checklists. Her down-to-earth approach and advice help many women in many industry sectors manage their maternity leave effectively, by knowing their rights—and responsibilities—towards their employer, their baby, their relationships but also to themselves, in what is a crucial time in their lives.

Nathalie wanted to inspire other women to use this magical time to pursue their dreams, and to become a higher version of themselves.

Following her initial success, Nathalie continues to adapt her Ultimate Maternity Leave Guide, looking at other countries, always using their most up-to-date regulations.

Nathalie is married and the mother of one boy, and this is her first non-fiction book series. Nathalie lives in London and studied in Oxford.
