‘The Courage to Grieve’ shares one man’s account of losing his wife

David W. Ingram announces the publication of his memoir

SPRINGTOWN, Texas – In “The Courage to Grieve: My Story of Love, Loss, Grief, and Hope” (published by Archway Publishing), author David W. Ingram narrates his journey through grief as he learns to live without his wife, Kimberly.

The memoir describes Ingram’s love and devotion during his wife’s four years with colon cancer, and the aftermath of Kimberly’s death. “The Courage to Grieve” reveals how Ingram drew on his faith in God in an attempt to keep his sorrow at bay. Written during the year after his wife died, the book offers insights into how the author slowly transitioned from despair to find hope and the glimpse of recovery while coming to terms with the loss of his wife.

“I want the reader to know that even though they feel alone they are not,” Ingram says. “I want them to know that things can get better, they can recover, and that there can be a future of hope and love… (but) recovery is not for the weak at heart. A person needs to be courageous and be willing to fight to live again.”

NEAH BAY, Wash. – Inelia Benz’s new book “Interview with an Angel” (published by Lulu), shares an interview Benz conducted with a man who introduces himself as Archangel Gabriel.

The setting of the book is the Makah Native American Reservation, in Neah Bay, Washington. Within the interview with Archangel Gabriel, Benz explores questions such as: is there a God, are angels agents of religions, where do humans originate, can angels incarnate as humans, how many other species are there in the Universe and others.

“Readers will enjoy the break away from belief systems and dogmas often attached to angels,” Benz says.

An excerpt from “Interview with an Angel”:

“When I walked in for our first meeting, I found him already sitting at my usual table. I recognized him instantly as the angel who had come to me those nights in 1973 when I was just 7 years old. He stood up and walked towards me smiling. Gingery blond short hair, deep golden green eyes, dark skinned, in his 30s or 40s and fit, like someone who works at heavy manual labor.”

John D. Foubert, Ph.D. releases ‘How Pornography Harms’

New book provides latest research on real harms of pornography

EDMOND, Okla. – Author John D. Foubert, Ph.D. has fought to end sexual violence for 25 years and the porn industry for 10. In his book, “How Pornography Harms” (published by LifeRich Publishing), he intends to shock the conscience of readers to motivate them in fighting the porn industry. He wants readers to know why viewing pornography should be avoided, beyond many obvious reasons they may already have at the outset.

“How Pornography Harms” weaves together life stories, interviews with top scholars, and the very latest research on the ways in which sexually explicit media hurts the viewer’s relationships, sexuality, and the lives of those around them. After reading the book, people will be armed with clear and convincing data and compelling life stories that show why they, their friends, family, and loved ones should do everything possible to avoid pornography.

Foubert, who writes from a Christian perspective, reports that pornography harms the brain, a person’s relationship with God, their safety, sexual relationship, children, friends and family. There are over 100 studies showing conclusively that viewing pornography is devastatingly harmful. His book paints a complete picture to the effect of today’s pornography and how it compares to that of the previous generations. He ends with a chapter on how to recover from addictive pornography use, making it an important resource for parents, pastors, people who have or might use pornography, counselors, clinicians and the clients they see.

“Pornography harms in many more ways than they ever thought. It rewires the brain, leads to erectile dysfunction, makes people less likely to be helpful to others in dangerous situations and introduces violence in relationships,” Foubert says.

Margarita Ochoa-Maya, MD talks about ‘The Hormone Link’

New book discusses link between hormone health, total integrative health

NASHUA, N. H. – Margarita Ochoa-Maya, MD came to a crossroad in her life when she felt that what she had set out to do when she decided to become a doctor was no longer in agreement with the current medical practice and the health care institution. She believes modern health care in the United States is not winning against “disease” and that “health care” is extremely expensive and seemingly hard to attain – but there is a reason. Her beliefs led her in writing “The Hormone Link: Recognize the “Link” Between your Health and Hormones” (published by Xlibris).

People are constantly bombarded with hormone-related topics such as hormone replacement therapy, weight loss plans and other conditions that involve hormones; yet the link between hormones and optimal health is yet to be discussed. In this book, Ochoa-Maya reviews the common hormones that rule the communication system in the body and discusses the link between hormone health and total integrative health.

“Contemporary medicine needs to be seen within the light of self-motivation and prevention, centered on close doctor-patient communication. Practical information and easy-to-understand material, which can be clearly understood by the patient, will be the keystone to patient engagement,” Ochoa-Maya says. “I am convinced that this method will promote health, prevention of disease, happiness and total well-being not only for individuals, but also for families and communities as a whole.”

With this book, Ochoa-Maya’s goal is to simplify the process for patients and invite them to be empowered by knowledge and ask the questions they need answered to improve their health and well-being. She wants to promote prevention, self-care and total well-being with a deep sense of restoring the importance of the doctor-patient relationship.

Terry Luce shows power, effectiveness of alternative therapy

‘The Blue Crayon’ charts thrilling adventure of girl with autism

LOS ANGELES – Terry Luce marks his debut in the publishing scene with a new fiction tale featuring “The Blue Crayon: Dolphin Therapy for Neurologically Disturbed Children” (published by Xlibris). Edifying, evocative and enthralling, this book brings to the fore the understanding of autism and today’s buzz of its latest medication children are being treated with along with its possible adverse effect.

“The Blue Crayon” takes a look into what it is like for a parent to have a child with special needs: the ups and downs, outbreaks in school – especially the bullying. They just want Gabby to be just like other children, except she telepathically communicates with a dolphin named Lucas. Every time the girl is around the dolphin she begins drawing on her notepad – drawings, according to authorities, that are messages about the government, biblical events and even ancient alien relics. At this point, the enraged Doctor Braden vowed to prove that pharmaceutical is the best way to cure Gabby and not the fairytale therapy the Damon family are getting conned into by the holistic doctors. Soon, Gabby is taken away from her parents. The answers are chilling and astonishing as they eventually decipher the little girl’s drawing in “The Blue Crayon.”

“In this book, we relate facts and then a story that is based on true events. Alternative therapy which relates to this little girl turning to art therapy to help release energy in her brain,” Luce shares. “There’s hope for kids who are pounding down 20-40 pills a day that are being prescribed by their doctors as Band-Aid for treating autistic kids and children with PTSD. There are alternatives for every type of disease.”

Born and raised in Lincoln, Nebraska, those Midwestern values have inspired Terry Luce to be the person that he is today.

His next writing projects include: a Western, “Brother behind the Badge”; a true story about the “CIVIL WAR” in Vicksburg, Mississippi 1863 in the “CODED MESSAGE: INSIDE THE VIGENERE CIPHER;” a controversial film about test laboratories on humans, “BREED”; and, a cult fan favorite, “BIG-FOOT.”

New self-help guidebook unleashes true power of unconscious

Allen Gliniewicz teaches readers to solve real-world issues with ‘It Clicks’

KATY, Texas — From the success of solving real world, personal and professional problems with proven techniques, Allen Gliniewicz shares to readers how one can effectively develop a relationship with their personal unconscious and use its resources through his debut publication, “It Clicks” (published by Balboa Press). Compact and concise, this book details the use of psychic hints to solve issues of many types.

“It Clicks” describes how to use the spiritual images, dreams, coincidences, accidents and other spiritual sources to resolve the problems every person encounters. But how can a person be assured that he/she had come to the correct personal interpretation of their symbol?

Gliniewicz answers: “The answer comes from within the person seeing the symbol. This symbol is sent to its receiver to deliver a message, usually related to a current life situation. There are often a variety of possible meanings from which frequently the receiver is able to choose the one that feels right. But why does one meaning seem right and while others do not? Because the truth of this meaning lies somewhere deep within the receiving person. In other words, for him or her this is the true meaning, i.e., it clicks.”

“It Clicks” is referred from the author’s personal journal records from October 1970 to the current time, demonstrating current problems, solutions that work in reality and describes how it was done (along with problems that occurred along the way).

“I want readers to take away from the book a satisfaction of how to use these methods, why they work, and the satisfaction of having successfully dealt with them,” Gliniewicz shares.

Arnold Robinson announces release of ‘The Second Born’

Fiction book tells poignant tale of family struggle based on young boy’s perspective

SPRINGERVILLE, Ariz. – Arnold Robinson’s “The Second Born” (published by Xlibris) illustrates a boy’s determination to maintain his family, while reeling from the repercussions of their reverend father choosing vice over virtue, self-indulgence over responsibility.

The two brothers try to help their sweet mother as she struggles due to their scoundrel father’s evil ways. Set in 1960 Appalachia, this gripping story follows a large poor family’s survival.

“Preaching hellfire and brimstone one minute and leaping into the Devil’s holy water the next, he drags his family through a cruel and uncertain life.”

Writing any time he got a chance, it took Robinson 16 years to work on his book series “The Second Born.” “I was born a storyteller and have always entertained everyone around me with tales from my young life,” he says. “Many tales are out of time, many funny, some are exaggerated, but all are real. Folks often comment in amazement, “You should write a book!”

An excerpt from this book:

I couldn’t tell which happened first, the door slamming behind Dad or the split second it took for his whistle to reach the other end of the hallway. It was the one we dreaded most, with its sharp sudden stops, and he was whistling it loud, with quick sips of air between.

“The Second Born” paints the harsh reality of a hard and uncertain life, seen through the eyes of a young boy.
