It's My Choice by Soo Myung Chung
This is a journey through doubt, fear, pain, and joy. It's a story of healing self in mind, body, and spirit through choices made in a lifetime; a story belonging to anyone; a story without gender, race, or wealth. It's my choice! I think of the many times I've told myself that and the years it took before I believed it. They're reminders that I own my decisions regardless what the situation is or who tells me what to do. Today, self-reminders are less frequent because I feel in control of my whole life, not just part of it. Why? Because I have a free will, God's gift to each of us. It's a love-gift given freely, unconditionally. It is without strings, enabling me to choose my journey, my path. I believe that it is by loving ourselves we can make progress and become better. I believe that our purpose on earth is to become better human beings by recognizing that special light within us-God. To you, reader, God may be the Universal Consciousness, Allah, or the Almighty. Whichever it is, remember it is your choice! Book copies are on display and available on Authors Press, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Book Depository, and other online resellers.

Fred Voss - My House was Not a Home
In Frederic Voss’s wonderful memoir, My House Was Not a Home, the author describes life on the farm with an abusive grandmother. His priority was finding other places to be than at “home,” a place never referred to as such in the book. Voss’s book is, however, not about abuse, but rather the friends that helped him avoid it. There were many characters, good and not so good. In chapter 4, we meet Reg Keetering, the king of the tall-tale spinners, as he conjures “The Man Who Invented Dinosaurs.” In chapter 5, Darrell (pronounced Duryl) Campbell regales the boys in the barbershop with the origins of the “Greatest Camel and Goat Herd Dog Y’all Ever Saw.” Readers meet the author’s best friend, Jimmy, Tehama County’s answer to Will Rogers. They’ll begin to hate the school bully, Stanley Bater, who picks on only kids smaller than him. Once referred to as “Master Bater,” he couldn’t figure out why they were all laughing. Among the author’s many friends were abandoned dogs that came to the house from the highway. They were taken in and fed and loved. Many were reclaimed by the highway or wandered off or killed in mysterious ways. There is room for their stories too.

Barbara ten Brink - Eight Pound Cows
Eight Pound Cows By: Dr. Barbara ten Brink Wouldn’t it be wonderful if cows weighed eight pounds? Just think of the fun to be had! About the Author Dr. Barbara ten Brink bought a twenty-acre ranch-ito in Gruene, Texas (population 20) where she builds fences, hoes cactus, and runs cows. “Every weekend, I feel connected to my grandmother, also a farmer. Granny’s reputation, her larger than life persona, her involvement with the entire community, her enthusiasm for work, her philanthropy are models to which I aspire. Working on my acreage, I imagine Clemmie working on her cotton farm. Harvesting mustang grapes, I visualize Clemmie canning preserves, making jellies, putting up stores of black-eyed peas, okra, tomatoes, and other produce she grew on her farm and shared with all of Brownfield, Texas. Every time I work at my ranch-ito, I channel Clemmie. I talk to her, ‘Dear Granny, Have I done enough? Have I worked hard enough? Have I accomplished one-tenth of your humane accomplishments?’ I aspire to.”

Marcelino Esquilin - The Apostles Methodology to Interpret Scripture
What if you acquire the knowledge and realize that most of the things you have learned as a Christian are in blunder? Be advised; but if you want to know, then do read this book. After receiving that glorious touch from guilt to forgiveness and sadness to joy called salvation, you were directed to live by the New Testament writings. Its content was drafted by the Apostles (eyewitnesses) instructed by Jesus of Nazareth in the method to interpret the Hebrew text. They wrote with no speculation of the truth, outlining God's will until complete redemption. The problem is most of that which is taught, (bits-n-pieces of the Gospel truth) leaves a sense of dissatisfaction. This book will teach the Bible student a blueprint, extracted from the Apostles method to interpret. Their theology prepares us for the eschatology events they wrote. The reader will grasp the full authority of truth, which God Jesus wants them to acquire. Paul points to reaching maturity and stands above the fables saying: "Christ himself gave, [...] to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may [...] reach unity (in three things to a result) in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God, and become mature [...and he gives the reasons] then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth [...] blown here and there by every wind of teachings and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming." This book points to a path, not a conclusion. We want to congratulate the serious Bible student on the acquisition of this book; take what is good for you and put aside what is not; remember that it will be helpful to someone else...

Brenda Palmer - Discovering The True You
Brenda Palmer was motivated to write this book because of what was instilled in her at an early age by a woman named Anita Stroud, who took her, her siblings and other children into her home in the projects of Fairview Homes, a neighborhood infested with drugs, violence, and teenage pregnancy. she took them under her wings and taught them domestic skills like sewing, knitting, and crafting along with learning the attributes of perseverance, endurance, and good work ethics. She also made it possible for them to participate in summer camp supported by the local churches in the community of Charlotte. Ms. Stroud never had children, but they were her children, whom she taught to work with their hands and make use of their God-given talents God placed in them. She taught them through Christ they could do all things. Also, as an adult, Brenda was motivated by an very dear friend Trinette Vereen who started a book club at their church who introduce them to a writer who offered writing courses once a month. Trinette was so kind enough to let Brenda accompany her to the courses by driving her there. God will place people in our lives to lead us to the destiny or future he has planned for us. Brenda was instructed by God to write this book, but had no idea as to how God will bring it too life. Through kind and loving people "God did it." This book will lead you to your true self in Jesus Christ.

All About Love: Poems From Mixed Experience by Joan Clark
An aging poet shares her "mixed experiences" with love - young love, disappointed love, other loves, short and sharp conclusions about love, and over-the-hill love. Humor and hard-won wisdom lie in these verses. Her subjects are things and events anyone can relate to from his or her own personal history. Although penned by a former college professor, these poems in a variety of forms - rhymed and unrhymed- are not academic in tone. No, this volume is blood and bone reality in accessible and memorable lines. There's an occasional tang of bitterness and a bit of regret, but most of these poems celebrate the joyful interest which love lends to our otherwise pedestrian lives.

Think Like A Molecule
Despite their complex structures, molecules most likely do not take time to ponder the ways they fit into the big scheme of things. They just are. But when zillions of molecules bond into organized, functional systems, we get everything, including you and me—and some seven billion others. Chuck Champlin, a writer, journalist, and former Walt Disney Co. communications executive, seeks inspiration via deep imaginative journeys into the infinitely vast and invisibly tiny realms of the cosmos in this small book with a big message. In observing molecular assemblies, we can see that physical matter came together, possibly all on its own, to create life and thinking minds. It is profound that our minds, perhaps born from accidental creativity, can intentionally assemble marvelous new things. To think like a molecule is to be aware of the physical foundations in matter that have given rise to our thoughts—and from there, it's onward into the realm of pure imagination and the twinkling stars of our infinite potential.

Virgil's Story
The first part of the story explains how Virgil's ancestors from Europe all arrived at that small region called Woodland, Indiana. Emphasis is on what was going on in that part of each one's world to cause them to migrate to this country and eventually to that spot in Indiana. Wars, religious intolerance, and decisions by the various kings or queens were the driving forces that caused so many to leave their homelands and look for better conditions. Life on a farm during the Great Depression and World War II is described in some detail. The emotional devastation upon learning of the deaths of two brothers in that war took a heavy toll on the Mochel Family. The second part deals with the many varied experiences of Virgil and Marian as they traveled their life-journey together, up to the present time.

Th e twists and turns in The Dance focus on Jans perception of the events in her life. From the decisions she makes, to the decisions made for her, she has unanswered questions that leave emptiness within her she cant seem to fi ll. What if? Why? If only!! How many times do we all second guess ourselves? Good choices, bad choices. Often, there are no choices. Jan doesnt quit until she fi nds the answers. It is funny, it is sad, it is sexy. But, most of all, it is honest. Writing this book has brought Jim and I even closer. Discussing the questions we both had about our relationship as young people, and how Th e Dance steps were performed without our awareness, have given us much to think about and remember. I hope you enjoy reading The Dance of Life as much as I enjoyed putting it on paper.

Pradeep Berry - My Connie: My First and Last Love Story
Everything changed for Pradeep K. Berry on February 28, 2015. That was the day his wife of forty-one years, Constance A. "Connie" Berry, died. He's been mourning ever since, and he seeks to cope with his loss in this tribute to his beloved spouse. In My Connie, he celebrates their love --a love that would have never happened if he hadn't left India to go to the United States. He only had seven dollars at the time, and he could not have dreamed that he'd meet a beautiful, intelligent, American wife. The author's family embraced Connie as soon as they realized she was polite, smart, and self-made. In short order, she became the star of the family. Berry lovingly describes Connie's qualities, character, and ethics as well as her professional career. He observes that even though he's been in tremendous pain since she died, he would have never had such a long and happy marriage if he and Connie had not loved each other so much. Connie and Pradeep, both consider themselves as two bodies and one soul. Now, Pradeep is hoping that they will be again two bodies and one soul in the next life.
