“Simultaneously compelling, intriguing, and effortlessly entertaining
read. De Soprontu imparts views on themes of poverty, race, identity,
strength, and deliverance, all tightly bound within this intricate
psychological opera.” KIRKUS REVIEWS

“VICES/VIRTUES is a beautifully written, strikingly moving, look at
the interacting lives and diverse backgrounds of women in an unconventional
profession” Indie Reader

 

Cristela had a childhood shrouded in secrets. Ashamed of their
circumstances, her mother told lies and encouraged her daughter to do the
same. As Cristela grew, she unraveled the lies, but found that deception is
a hard habit to break. Now, as an adult, Cristela creates a secret alter ego
as the dominatrix Mistress Clara.

By day, Cristela is a good-girl poster child. By night, Mistress Clara
masters the hidden erotic realm of an S&M dungeon. With her knack for
duplicity things should work smoothly except for one complication –
friendship. The quirky array of fellow dominatrices at the dungeon are
nothing like the stereotypes she expected. Divided between her affection for
the girls at the dungeon and her desire to keep her fetish activities
secret, Cristela fears her two worlds are colliding. Can Cristela break her
history of deceit? In a world of vices and virtues, salvation isn’t
something you find, it’s a path you make.

Children’s Book

Date Published: May 20, 2022

Publisher: Hasmark Publishing International

 

photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

Josh, age ten, and Sara, age eight, are brother and sister. They enjoy each
other’s company and love to play games together and explore the woods near
their house. Sometimes, though, they worry that they don’t fit in with their
peers. Like many kids, they have questions and concerns about life and why
things are the way they are.

One day, a seemingly wrong turn in the woods leads them to an unexpected
discovery. They meet a wise, magical being who teaches them how to
appreciate and use their miraculous minds and unique God-given gifts.
Through these lessons, they learn how to connect with their authentic
confidence and personal power, positively transforming them and their
mindsets.

The story in this short book is based on the author’s personal life
journey and the wisdom and insight she has gained from her mentors and
spiritual teachers in the field of personal development and spirituality. It
is a life-transforming guide for children and adults alike.

Review

Fanciful and Offbeat in the best way. This was quite the treat. Great illustrations and an overall great story to appeal to young readers or listeners. Perfect addition to any child’s library with great themes and lessons and a enjoyable read.

About the Author

I was born in Seoul, Korea in 1971.  As the youngest of the family,
with an older sister and two older brothers, I was surrounded by comfort,
support, and most of all, love.

As a child, I loved spending time in my own world of imagination, where I
had the ability to create my friends, experiences, and
“realities.” These were always preferable to the true reality
that surrounded me.

Growing up in the 1970s and 1980s, Korea was still recovering from its long
history of military dictatorship after the Korean war and still experiencing
the turmoil of political upheaval. It was simply too chaotic and harsh for a
free-spirited young mind.

life from a modern viewpoint.

This tale is a new telling of the greatest story ever told, in religious
science-fiction, the first of its kind. We invite you to read along to
discover the human side of Jesus.

Review

This was different. It was quirky and imaginative. It’s got a great feel to it and theme that keep the reader invested. I’m not even sure what crowd it would appeal to, it’s obviously religious in what it’s about but it is very modern at the same time. It’s done really well and I enjoyed it.

art and music from San Diego State University, where he wrote, directed, and
acted. He’s appeared in sitcoms such as Happy Days, Laverne and
Shirley, Bosom Buddies as well as in the feature, Pennies from Heaven.
He also wrote an episode for Laverne and Shirley.  His first book,
Pollen and the Ring of Harmony is about living in harmony with nature. His
next book, Saving Christ:  Starway Seven is about understanding the
true love of Jesus.  He now lives in Hayden, Idaho surrounded by nature
and wild animals which he protects.

by his teenage parents.

This boy grew up with an aggressive and womanising father that constantly
reminded him that he was a mistake that ruined his father’s
life.

While been beaten and mentally abused, all he craved from his parents was
love but received nothing but humiliation and sufferance from his
father.

This caused detrimental trauma to the young boy, and he grew up believing
that he would never achieve anything in life.

I was this little boy, and this is my story.

have had less-than-ideal family life and the proof has shown that in the end
we make our own lives and can choose toe either be a victim or a
winner.”

-Vicki Ebert

 

“The book ‘Escaping my Demons’ is Fragarazzi’s road map to the
emotional freedom he now enjoys today.”

-Kez Wickham St George

 

About the Author

Hangmen by Dale Arenson #promo #nonfiction #memoir #motorcycleclub #giveaway #rabtbooktours @RABTBookTours

Riding With an Outlaw Motorcycle Club in the Old Days

 

Memoir/ Motorcycle History

Date Published: 01-09-2021

 

photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

 

Take a thrill-packed ride with the outlaw bikers of the Hangmen Motorcycle
Club during the wild days of the 60s and 70s, and experience what it feels
like to live on the edge.

When 15-year-old Dale drops out of school, he’s not sure if he wants
to be a Marine or a biker. Neither of them pays well, but both fulfill his
need for adventure and excitement. As soon as he gets his first Harley, the
decision comes easily and the young man falls into the dangerous life of a
1% outlaw biker in Southern California.

For almost a decade, Hangmen Motorcycle Club becomes his family, and
passionate yet kind-hearted Dale experiences true brotherhood with this
extraordinary group of men. Caught up in gang brawls, run-ins with the law,
partying and some romance, there is never a dull moment in his day.
Perennial values such as honor, loyalty, and freedom also become part of his
life. For Hangmen Motorcycle Club—a modern version of the gunfighters
of the Old West—is all about living life to the fullest as free
spirits, preserving one’s liberties, and protecting one’s
kin.

With hundreds of raving reviews, Hangmen is a page-turner to be enjoyed
from beginning to end whether or not you are a biker. It is packed with
unexpected twists and turns and the author’s sense of humor brightens
up even the bleakest situations. Ultimately, Hangmen is a book about
humanity and probably the most authentic and raw immersion in the motorcycle
club subculture of the 60s and 70s.

 

About the Author

risky and unconventional life. A high-school dropout, he found the
supportive family he always craved as a member of the famous Hangmen

animated by the desire to better himself, Arenson reinvented himself as a
commercial pilot and had a successful career in aviation for 35 years.

Always up for a good challenge, later on he became a World Champion and
Record Breaker Rifle Shooter.

Abolishing the Traditions of Men in the Church by Aniekan Okono #promo #nonfiction #religion #rabtbooktours @RABTBookTours @BookBuzznet

An ex.po.sé on Christian doctrines and traditions which are against
God’s covenants.

 

Religion / Nonfiction

Date Published: 01/24/2023

Publisher: Times of Truth Publishing

 

photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

 

This book shows how the original Hebrews, including the followers of
Christ, understood God’s voice; how they knew a Scriptural text was
inspired and should be accepted.

It highlights issues which have arisen because, in early Church history,
the original voice wasn’t understood and followed properly.

Since the death of the last of the 12 Apostles, traditions of men have
taken over the Church, and these have had negative effects on the world
despite the Church putting so much effort into evangelism and winning
souls.

This book shows how and why Christianity is not the fastest-growing
religion, despite efforts in evangelism and soul-winning.

This book goes further to provide more accurate interpretations of the
events from the Garden of Eden down to the tree of life in the book of
Revelation. It uses principles of interpretation, as provided by the Bible
itself.

The book has pointed out traditions of men in the Church with respect to
teachings on Hell, Heaven, who goes to Heaven, what happens when we die,
binding the devil, witches and wizards, one is taken and one left, pleading
the blood of Jesus, the Church as the bride of Christ, times of the
gentiles, salvation, brothers and sisters of mine, repent or you’ll
burn in hell and many other daily teachings.

The Voice of Villainy by Lona Bailey, PhD #promo #nonfiction #rabtbooktours @RABTBookTours @MKWebsiteandSEO

The Betty Lou Gerson Story

 

Nonfiction

Date Published: January 28, 2023

 

photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

 

She voiced one of Disney’s most infamous villainesses. With her husky
timbre and most unforgettable cackle, Betty Lou Gerson terrified an entire
generation as Disney’s original “Cruella de Vil” in One
Hundred and One Dalmatians (1961). Betty used her whiskey-soaked voice to
give us an innovative portrait of elegant villainy beyond
entertainment’s stereotypical “old hag” antagonists in
radio, film, and television. She had a prolific radio career in both Chicago
and Hollywood before the silver screen and was featured in many popular
television series in the 1950s and 1960s such as Perry Mason, The Dick Van
Dyke Show, and Hazel. Though “Cruella” is perhaps her most
recognized role, she also performed in other beloved film classics including
Cinderella (1950), Mary Poppins (1964), and Cats Don’t Dance
(1997).

The great irony of Betty’s story is that while her voice frightened
audiences through nearly all mediums, off mic, she was in fact no villainess
at all. Betty traversed through some of the most volatile eras in American
history, while overcoming many personal tragedies of her own. She was among
twentieth century entertainment pioneers and an iconic voice of
feminism.

No Higher Calling by Craig Ireland #blogtour #bookreview #christian #religion #nonfiction #rabtbooktours @RABTBookTours @craigcireland

Shepherding God’s People According to Paul

Biblical Reference, Church Leadership, Christian Ministry

Date Published: January 17, 2023

Publisher: Lucid Books

 

What this book offers is a chance for church leaders-and anyone desiring to
serve as a church leader-to enjoy some personal mentoring at the feet of the
Apostle Paul.

The Apostle Paul, who was undoubtedly the Lord’s most fruitful apostle (1
Cor. 15:10), gives us profound insight into:

 

– Developing a Scripturally elevated sense of the importance of Church
leadership.

– Understanding the Biblical function of church leaders (both the what and
the how of their role in shepherding Christ’s flock).

– Overcoming crisis, temptation, criticism, and the many other challenges
of ministry.

– Understanding the spiritual warfare of ministry and church
leadership.

– Learning how to be on guard to preserve one’s health and the health of
the church against spiritual attacks.

 

The church today is in a critical state and in much need of strong,
healthy, biblical leadership.

Review

The authors passion for the subject really shines through. It’s expertly crafted and you can tell the author really cared a lot about the things he was trying to convey. Thought-provoking and full of great information for those in the church and ministry.

The Walk-On by Richard Podkowski #promo #releaseday #giveaway #fiction #rabtbooktours @RABTBookTours @PublishingAcorn

Commercial Fiction

Date Published: February 23, 2023

Publisher: Acorn Publishing

 

photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

 

In the twilight of his NFL career as a middle linebacker for the Chicago
Storm, Mike “the Steelman” Stalowski masks his physical pain and
mental anguish with alcohol and painkillers. The fan favorite has a rebel
image and a notorious reputation, and he plays a violent gridiron game
fueled by inner rage. 

While estranged from his wife and living in the fishbowl environment of
professional sports, he unexpectedly meets the fresh-out-of-college Kim
Richardson. She sees through Mike’s star persona to who he really
is—a kind guy from the Southeast Side of Chicago who has never
forgotten his humble blue-collar roots. The lives of the star-crossed,
seemingly mismatched couple collide during a whirlwind romance that
culminates in a tragic series of events.

The Walk-On is a timeless tale of love and loss that explores the
consequences of personal decisions and the rewards of faith, redemption, and
hope.

 

Early Reviews

“An interesting read where star linebacker Mike Stalowski confronts the inevitable challenges every NFL player faces as they transition to their post-football life. His experiences may seem exaggerated, but they are still very real.”

Gary Fencik, Chicago Bears, Super Bowl XX Champion

 

“Despite his NFL fame and bad-boy attitude and antics, I empathized with the humble guy from a blue-collar background fighting painful emotional and physical demons. . .Ultimately, The Walk-On is an incredible story of love and loss, with faith and mentorship fostering hope for the future.”

Bill Rancic, Author of the New York Times bestseller, You’re Hired

 

“Just like the protagonist’s very fast sports car, The Walk-On will leave you, from the very first paragraph, just a little breathless as you navigate all the sharp turns that come fast and furious at the reader. . .”

Jean Becker, Author of the New York Times bestseller, The Man I Knew: The Amazing Story of George H. W. Bush’s Post-Presidency

 

“The Walk-On is a fascinating story of self-sabotage and redemption. A page-turner!!!!” 

Mary Pat Kelly, Bestselling author of Galway Bay, Of Irish Blood, and Irish Above All
