New Release Offers Effective Techniques for Getting the Job of Their Dreams – Book by Sky Storms

Lost your job? No problem.

 When you’ve lost your job, give yourself a day or two (no more) to get through the “I don’t believe this could happen to me”, and the anger that will most likely follow. Then it’s time to get busy planning your next move.

The number one thing you need to do when you’ve lost your job is to adopt a willingness to get out of your comfort zone. This is a time to spread your wings and embrace new activities, some of which may seem a bit scary to you at first, but with practice will become easier. Embrace activities that pave the way to stacking the deck in your favor when job hunting.

The second thing you need to do when you’ve lost your job is to learn how to get face to face interviews in a world that demands on-line applications. The programs used on-line by most employers are designed to filter people out, not to select the best qualified.  When applying on-line, you never get the chance to showcase your personal strengths and sell yourself. Would you like to know how to do that?

There are some good, time-tested techniques that work as well today as they ever did. If you are honestly open to change, and willing to put forth the effort, you can learn What Works, How It Works and Why It Works in the short, to-the-point book Get The Job You Really Want, by author/speaker Sky Storms.

Author Sky Storms, a career education coordinator at a vocational technical school for more than 25 years, wrote the highly regarded job acquisition and retention skills clinic “Survival in the World of Work.” Storms mentors high school students through a local chapter of a Take Stock in Children, a Florida state scholarship program. He served in the U.S. Air Force, is a commercially licensed pilot and worked as an aerial photographer for 30 years. For more information, visit http://www.skystorms.com.

Young Marine Tells Story of His Tour in Vietnam in New Release – Book by James Oyster

This is the moving personal account of one man’s experience of the horrors of war, focusing on the 77-day siege of Khe Sanh, South Vietnam. The memoir, told through a series of diary entries the author wrote from Nov. 15, 1967, to May 29, 1968, offers a first-person view of life as an infantryman struggling to keep himself and those around him alive. Photos Oyster took document daily life of Marines serving a world away from their homes.

Moving Trees, published by Dog Ear Publishing, begins with the 20-year-old’s trip from his family’s West Virginia farm and follows him through the hot, steamy jungles of Vietnam to the final injury that sends him home. Readers can relive his courage at facing another day and mourn with him as he holds a dying fellow Marine. Small luxuries like hot chow and showers mean the world to men living from day to day. Oyster holds nothing back, whether it’s descriptions of R&R, impatience about getting back to the action or fear when the enemy starts shooting. Although the young Marine survives the war, it changes him forever.

Author James Oyster received two Purple Hearts and a Bronze Star with Valor as a Marine during the Battle of Khe Sanh and other engagements during the Vietnam War. During his tour, Oyster served as a fire team leader, squad leader, right guide, platoon sergeant and platoon commander. He spent eight months at Bethesda Naval Hospital recovering from his injuries. After his discharge from the Marine Corps, he taught middle school and high school and served as principal and coach during an educational career that has lasted almost 40 years.

Poetry for ages 2 – 5 pose difficult challenges solved with Good Humor – Book by David Russell

Building a tower of blocks, getting dressed by yourself and visiting the zoo don’t seem to have much in common – except that they’re all familiar to young children, so they’re all subjects for young fun. To the fun rhyming words add bone tickling pictures and you’re in the youngster’s world, with poems that will bring them back again and again. “Books at first are just pictures with scribbles,” says Russell. “Then, as the child grows, they become friendlier scribbles, ‘til one day those scribbles become the words being spoken, and lo! The child has become a self reader.”

Some of the subjects Before We Were 5 tackles are The Sun, who goes to bed at night just like little kids do, and the fun of having a new shoebox which can become anything from a doll’s bed to a marble holder or crayon box. Then there are Puppies, Hills to climb and Words Kids Make Up instead of the Words big people say.

Author David Russell and illustrator Frank have worked together for 30 years from when their recognized TV commercials led to a contract to create educational films for the Office of Education/HEW.

This is their third children’s book after “Pop-Pop’s Magic Chair” and “The Loch Lomond Monster.” All are available through Apple Stores IBooks, Amazon, Barnes&Noble, Ingram’s E-Catalogues and their site:

New Release Shows the True Power of Christian Grace- Book by Dr. Michael J. Norman

Answering a two-line classified ad in the newspaper had life-changing consequences for a trustingly naive doctor fresh out of school, just starting his career and life as a new father. In a nightmarish true story that could occur to any of us, he innocently takes a part-time chiropractic job from employers who were later found to be a Russian-organized crime ring involved in money laundering, insurance fraud and other crimes. Despite his cooperation in a federal government investigation, the author soon finds himself surrounded by deception on all sides.  As his cooperation is turned cruelly against him, Michael endures a federal indictment and an early-morning raid upon his home where he was arrested at gunpoint by six FBI agents in front of his five-year-old daughter. He’s left with two choices: plead guilty to crimes he didn’t commit, receive probation and avoid prison time; or fight the injustice and risk going to prison for at least 10 years. The first means cooperating with the government and lying to put people in prison who may be innocent; the second means doing the impossible and taking on the government.

Unbridled Grace, published by Dog Ear Publishing, is the true story of how one man rises from the forces of evil through his renewed faith in Christ and takes the reader on a journey to redemption through the bold use of our power of choice for God. Along the way, Michael meets a dynamic Catholic parish priest who gives him the courage to forge a path through this crisis and a hard-working attorney who joins him in this monumental battle. Will their efforts be enough to free the author and his family from this nightmare?  It is at this time that a series of seemingly miraculous occurrences begin and the reader is shown what courage, faith and the power of heartfelt prayer can bring to all of our lives when all else appears hopeless.

Author Michael Norman has owned a family health center offering chiropractic care and wellness programs since 1992.  Since 2003, he has also served at a non-profit center offering healthcare to the poor and uninsured of his community. He lives near Dallas with his family.

New Fantasy Release Explores an Enchanted Dimension and Immortals Who Dwell There – Book by Suzanne Bertussi

Robin Blake’s only family is her husband, powerful divorce attorney David Blake.  Her world is upended when she learns of his affair with a coworker, and Robin makes a drastic decision: she slits her wrists in hopes of exacting revenge upon her cheating husband.  After this fateful act, she awakens in a different dimension, a dimension in which she plays a vital role.  Robin is the giver of curses, and she was banished to the human dimension as a very young child to protect her from the dark forces who hope to use her gift for evil.  Upon her death, she’s brought back to the land of her birth, and she’s in more danger than ever.

Lord Soren, a brave and handsome knight from the land of Nemir, hopes to rescue Robin and prevent her from being forced to curse more people.  Soren evokes passionate feelings in Robin, and she is conflicted.  Does she have the right to pursue love after she took her own life?  What is Lord Soren’s secret, and does he share it with the regal and imposing King of Nemir?  Can Robin be protected from the wicked King Raoul and his henchmen before it’s too late?

Less Mortal, published by Dog Ear Publishing, is an enchanting look into a fantastic dimension, full of colorful characters and an entirely original world of the author’s creation.  Suzanne Bertussi, a writer of science fiction and fantasy, has written four novels, three of which make up the Less Mortal trilogy.  Bertussi now resides in San Diego, California, with her husband and their four children.

New Non-Fiction Release Shares Triumph of Athlete With One Arm, No Legs – Book by Tim Clark

Tim Clark was born with one arm and no legs, but this did not stop him from leading an extraordinary life.  The youngest of four children, his parents and his siblings never treated him differently, and with the support of his family and his own fiercely competitive nature, he managed to become a varsity wrestler at his high school.  He then went on to graduate from the University of Kansas, where he wrestled on the K.U. Wrestling Club and was introduced to the sport of table tennis. Tim began to play table tennis competitively, and later went on to place second in the United States for the Standing Disabled Doubles Table Tennis National Championship in Las Vegas, Nevada.

After graduating from University of Kansas with a degree in business, Tim joined the workforce.  This opened a whole new world of competition to him by way of the Kansas City Corporate Challenge, or the KCCC.  This is an annual event that allows companies to put up their best competitors in different sports events to see who comes out on top.  Tim excelled at table tennis going 56-7, winning gold in many events and eventually winning the prestigious KCCC Alex George Award after an amazing 50 yard freestyle swim in just 45 seconds!  His competitive nature also drove him to run a 10K without his prosthetics, completing the run in less than an hour and a half.

With God All Things Are Possible, published by Dog Ear Publishing, is a story of a man whose achievements are remarkable by any standard, and particularly amazing in light of the disabilities Tim Clark refused to allow to stand in his way.  Tim’s attitude is the most commendable thing about the story; his steadfast faith and his drive to not just do well for a disabled man but to compete as an athlete are inspirational to all.  Readers will find themselves cheering for Tim, and in awe of his fierce drive. The back of the book also includes quotes from former K.U. and NBA basketball star Danny Manning and Time Warner Cable’s Metro Sports Dave Stewart. This is Tim Clark’s first book; Tim lives in Kansas City, and works as an accountant for DST Systems.
