The Mystery of Fate: Common Coincidence or Divine Intervention?The Mystery of Fate
By Arlene Uslander and Brenda Warneka
Publisher: R.J. Buckley Publishing
ISBN: 978-0981965420
Pages: 280
Genre: Non-fiction. Anthology/Spiritual/Philosophy

The Mystery of Fate: Common Coincidence or Divine Intervention? an award-winning anthology of over fifty stories or encounters from both Uslander and Warneka and other authors of diverse cultures and various occupations from around the world. Each shares real stories of circumstances and situations that are so extraordinary and unexplainable that they may leave some wondering whether such encounters are mere coincidences or of divine intervention. In numerous instances throughout the book, one small seemingly insignificant action or deed; a decision or following one’s own intuition, lead to a profound change, transformation, and/or the saving of a life.

Whether one terms these occurrences fate, blessings, miracles, coincidences, luck or divine intervention, encountering such brings us to a complete halt, garners our undivided attention and leaves us with the realization that there are things we cannot explain, fully understand or control. If, you have been reticent about sharing your own extraordinary and unexplainable encounters for fear of how they will be received by others, after reading Authors A. Uslander’s and B. Warneka’s and numerous other authors’ stories in this amazing book, your fears will, hopefully, be put to rest.

By Thomas Arthur Nelson
Publisher: CreateSpace
ISBN: 978-1475016741
Published: May 2012

Millions of ordinary Catholics are leaving their Church, expressing final frustration over reforms that never come. An Ordinary Catholic is a memoir style essay by a Catholic-educated layman whose life experiences provide a convincing background and perspective for a reform of his Church that will resonate with many. Relating his life experiences, Nelson provides strong arguments against some very traditional Catholic doctrine and he touches on many of the issues being debated today, both inside and outside of his Church. His recounting of five paranormal spiritual encounters suggests he is not as ordinary as he claims.

Military Thriller – Black Ops: Section 8

Black Ops: Section 8Black Ops Section 8
By Bob Mayer
Publisher: Cool Gus Publishing
ISBN: 9781935712879
Published: March 2012
Genre: Military Thriller

By NY Times Bestselling Author and former Green Beret Bob Mayer

Over five million books sold. Translated into over a dozen languages.

Section 8: The men and women called upon by The Organization to do the impossible. They are the soldiers who have nothing to lose. They make up a top–secret unit tasked with what others call suicide missions.

The Organization pulled strings long before the founding of the United States. It dates back to the destruction of the Knights Templar and even further in history. As secrets from the Golden Lilly Operation and the infamous Unit 731 from World War II become exposed, you have to wonder who the real enemy is.

Captain Jim Vaughn is an officer in disgrace. Commanding a Special Forces mission to rescue hostages in the Philippines, Vaughn’s team is destroyed, and when the smoke clears, he is the one made the scapegoat. Forced into the shadows by the scandal, Vaughn is offered a chance to redeem himself when he is approached by an enigmatic government agent working for The Organization looking for a few desperate men.

Vaughn is shocked to meet his new teammates, a group of men and women outside of the regular chain of command. These are soldiers who have used up all their second chances. These are men and women who have crossed the line one too many times. Drug users. Felons. The terminally ill. These are now the soldiers that Vaughn must trust with his life. Even with a traitor in their ranks. But is the traitor actually the patriot?

This group of misfits has been assembled for two reasons––they are skilled, and they are expendable. These are the kinds of men and women who are needed to attempt missions the government can’t acknowledge, the country can’t condone, and the team cannot fail. But the deeper Vaughn gets into the unique group, the more he realizes that The Organization may be concealing more than the rap sheets of its most unusual operators. A team of such unique properties is the perfect tool to use against America’s enemies…and possibly America itself.

“Mayer had me hooked from the very first page.” Stephen Coonts “A pulsing technothriller. A nailbiter in the best tradition of adventure fiction.” Publishers Weekly.

Historical Fiction – Anastasia

Anastasiaanastasia
By Colin Falconer
Publisher: Cool Gus Publishing
ISBN: 978-1621250050
Published: June 2012
Genre: Historical Fiction

‘Falconer’s grasp of period and places is almost flawless … He’s my kind of writer.’ – Peter Corris, The Australian ‘Some men don’t fall in love, they get lost. I was lost from the moment I saw Anastasia Romanov in the taxi club that first night …’

When Michael Sheridan jumped into the Whangpoa River to save a woman he had met in one of Shanghai’s taxi clubs, his life changed irrevocably. A Russian refugee, Anastasia Romanov bears an uncanny resemblance to the princess of the same name, who was rumoured to have survived the brutal murder of her family at the hands of Bolshevik revolutionaries.

The fate of the last Czar’s youngest daughter has become one of the most talked about mysteries of the time, but Michael’s Anastasia is suffering from traumatic amnesia and remembers nothing of her life before Shanghai. So who is she?

Unraveling the mystery of Anastasia’s identity and past takes them both from the streets of Shanghai to the decadence of pre-war Berlin, from the London of flappers and Charlestons, behind the grim curtain of Bolshevik Russia and finally to New York just before the Wall Street crash.

‘Falconer weaves a pacy story of obsession, love, greed and corruption … Really well done.’ – Sydney Morning Herald

The Green Beret Survival Guide For the Apocalypse, Zombies, and MoreThe Green Beret Survival Guide
By Bob Mayer
ISBN: : 9781621250463
Publisher: Cool Gus Publishing
ISBN: 978-1621250463
Published: December 2012
Pages: 280
Genre: Survival Guide, Outdoors, SelfHelp, Non-fiction

West Point graduate, former Green Beret and NY Times Bestselling author Bob Mayer brings you a different type of survival guide (one you can actually use): a practical step-by-step handbook for the average person, full of valuable information. It’s written using humor, personal experience and training, film & book examples, and real world case studies. This book lays out the mindset needed to survive from mild, to moderate, to extreme emergencies in a logical flow that moves from preparation you must do now through action in the actual emergency. Covered are the five key elements of survival; the Special Forces Area Study; how to build you survival A-Team; equipment needed; proper preparation and actions in your home and your car; then covering a range of emergencies from car accidents to burglary to hurricanes, power outages, vampires, wild fires, plane crashes, alien abduction, terrorism and more. Yes, there is humor in the book, because humor is a key element of survival. Certain over the top sections (vampires, etc.) are designed as Kindling pages (not Kindle) that can be torn out of the print version and used to start a fire.

From the basics, the book moves into detailed survival techniques for water, food, fire, shelter and first aid. Finally, the book concludes with extreme emergencies, where civilization might collapse, whether for a short or extended period of time. And yes, that’s when we get to zombies (communicable diseases). This is a book that can save your life and the life of those you love
