The Power Book Boost & Giveaway!

"a heart-quickening novel that will thrill Michael Crichton fans and that T.C. Boyle readers will find wickedly smart"



About The Power
What if you had the power to heal others but it only brought you personal destruction and ruin? Would you still use it? 

When a street shaman meets a horrific demise on Dr. Austin MacLean’s ER table, Austin soon discovers a raw and irrepressible power. But when this power inflicts traumatic effects on three chronically ill children, families rush to accuse him, his colleagues condemn him, and the police begin to investigate in this affluent New Jersey beach town....and so do others when the children begin to show inconceivable progress. 

Dara Kleows, a local reporter, is the first to connect the children’s gradual healings back to Austin. The two develop a deep bond but Austin remains uncertain as to what this beautiful woman wants. Is she just after a story, or more? There are those who covet Austin’s “power” and at any cost, while Dara grows concerned by Austin’s headlong march toward his own perdition. 

What if you had the power to heal but people condemned you and supected its use? Would you still use it? Read The Power. You just might need it someday when you meet the One, or if that One becomes you.

An UnSpoken Compromise - Featured Book

An UnSpoken Compromise

by Rizi Xavier Timane PhD ASW 

Rating: ✰✰✰✰½

Rizi Xavier Timane, PhD, ASW, is a Nigerian-born transgender minister and certified grief recovery specialist residing in Los Angeles, California. He grew up in an extremely religious Christian home and was subjected to multiple exorcisms and other reparative attempts by his family and the church to “pray the gay away.” An Unspoken Compromise takes you through his journey of self-discovery and spiritual exploration including: 

Coming out as a trans boy at eight years old 
Identifying as a lesbian in homophobic Africa 
Transitioning while facing societal and family rejection 
The religious persecution and bullying he has suffered all along 

Rizi’s message to the LGBT community is twofold. First, be your authentic self—it’s the only way to inner peace and happiness. Second, if you are in search of a relationship with God, a spiritual path to unconditional love and acceptance does exist for you free from condemnation and negative judgment. 

“A searing memoir.” 
—Truth-out.org 

“An honest and important piece of work!” 
—Jami Davis, MSW 

“Dr. Timane brings up thought-provoking points and consistently finds ways to raise the self-esteem and value of anyone reading.…something that usually takes us at least two dirty martinis.” 
—Gay List Daily 

“Members of the LGBT community will find areas to identify with in this telling of the discrimination and rejection Rizi experienced both as a lesbian and now as a transgendered male. It also provides insight into this world experience for those who would like a better understanding and through this understanding have more compassion for those who struggle with gender dysphoria. 
— Arlene Tippy, LCSW, ACSW. Instructor, University of Southern California School of Social Work


An UnSpoken Compromise Reviews


It is extremely well written, and the author comes through on every page as an extremely likeable and caring individual. - H. F. Corbin

"An Unspoken Compromise" speaks to the LGBT community. You cannot "pray gay away" is his mantra and he urges people of whatever sexual orientation to come to grips with themselves and come out of the closet. - Tommy Dooley

I would give this book 5 out of 5 stars. Mr. Timane really opened my eyes about more than just LBGT. His ability to keep his faith shows the inner strength that many lack. This was a great book and I feel privileged to be able to have read it. - Deborah B.


Meet Rizi Xavier Timane


Rizi Xavier Timane' was born in Northern Nigeria, West Africa. He grew up in a fundamentalist Christian home and was taught from an early age that being part of the LGBT community would lead him straight to hell. Like most transgendered persons, Rizi struggled with gender dysphoria in early childhood and initially identified as a lesbian.The rejection and persecution that Rizi was subjected to led him to abuse drugs and alcohol, and coupled with his growing gender dysphoria, culminated in a suicide attempt. After much soul searching and research, Rizi, like many LGBT people today, discovered that nothing is wrong with him being transgendered nor is anything wrong with LGBT sexuality, which are both in fact, natural God-given traits. 

His struggles and persecution identifying first as an openly out lesbian in Africa, and then subsequently as a trans-man, are the inspiration behind his ministry today. Rizi is a commissioned minister and spiritual counselor within Rizi Timane Ministries-a Jesus based ministry that values people of all faiths and religious backgrounds. He routinely provides affirming spiritual support to the LGBT community and is much sought after as a public speaker on the subject of the intersection of Religion/Spirituality and LGBT Civil Rights. Rizi’s speaking engagements have included universities, colleges, churches and other non-profit organizations. Rizi is also an inspirational/gospel singer whose album  "Come Out" has been well received within the community and had him booked in numerous affirming churches/venues all over the USA and Internationally.  Rizi also loves writing and is an active blogger for the Southern Poverty Law Center's "Teaching Tolerance Magazine." His articles have been published in numerous magazines nationally and internationally.

Rizi is a registered associate clinical social worker (ASW) with the state of California. He attended the Claremont School of Theology in California, earning a graduate certificate in Religion, Activism and Social Justice.  He holds a masters degree in Management from Webster University, a  Masters in Social Work from the University of Southern California (USC), and a PhD in Christian Counseling from Newburgh Seminary.

The 92-Year-Old Lady Who Made Me Steal a Dead Man's Car - Free Kindle Fiction

The 92-Year-Old Lady Who Made Me Steal a Dead Man's Car - A thrilling and seriously funny novel 
by Fred Schäfer 

An old lady and a young man meet on a crosswalk in Manhattan in bizarre circumstances which drastically change the directions of their lives. A foul-mouthed youth is killed in a traffic accident. The old lady’s apartment is visited by folks that would make most people run to their psychologist. A mass murderer explains why he thinks he is a good man. A cool Jesus seems to agree with him and asks for The Bible to be rewritten: make the book a bit more interesting, inject a bit of humour and give me a girlfriend. Attempts are made to rewrite literary history: Hemingway’s Santiago wants to return with the marlin intact; Jay Gatsby doesn’t want to end up dead in a swimming pool. It takes a while for the police to get involved, but when it finally happens, the outcome is one that nobody could have predicted.

Breathless - Free Kindle Fiction

Breathless
by Louise Marley

Someone in Port Rell has a secret.

Nothing ever happens in the seaside village of Port Rell, which is why Lainey Jennings is so keen to leave it. She’s only twenty-four, there’s so much more she wants to do with her life. Crazy and outlandish things; like ice diving in Alaska, explore the underwater caves in Mexico, maybe even search for the lost city of Atlantis. Stay in Port Rell forever? Talk about purgatory!

Since the death of her father, she’s struggled to keep the family diving business from bankruptcy. There’s just one thing that keeps her going. Her dream that one day she’ll discover the lost wreck that her father was so obsessed with, the legendary Mary Eliza - responsible for destroying Port Rell almost four hundred years ago.

When an old, unknown wreck is discovered in the bay, sleepy Port Rell is under siege once again. This time it’s from the media, including a team from the Wreck Raiders TV show, led by handsome archaeologist Zac Nelson. The villagers are quick to cash in on their unexpected popularity, but ancient wrecks aren’t the only things waiting to be discovered in Port Rell.

Because someone in Port Rell has a secret.

And it's deadly.
