Doyle Mosley Explores Christian Unity in New Novel

Dog Ear Publishing releases “The Christian Anatomy at a Glance” by Doyle Mosley.

Dog Ear Publishing releases “The Christian Anatomy at a Glance” by Doyle Mosley.

A series of events lead to changes in faith for two families in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing. Author Doyle Mosley uses the novel to highlight the importance of love for all as Christianity’s greatest message.

When the unexpected death of a patient during routine surgery shakes a medical resident’s faith, it sets in motion eye-opening experiences that lead to different views and changed perceptions of Christ’s church for two families. This new novel, which has unity as its theme, sheds light on sins of misuse and abuse that have fragmented Christianity; in other words, a lack of love. In focusing on a faith based on exclusion rather than inclusion, the characters fail to live Christ’s message of unity in God’s family.

In “The Christian Anatomy at a Glance,” resident Daniel Stephens visits the bereaved husband’s home and comes away with a realization that faith can unlock the door to God’s grace. He and Justin begin to talk and eventually their two families meet, hitting it off immediately. A decade later – and after experiencing more health trials – the families remain friendly. Attending a Promise Keepers conference with thousands of other men, including Justin, Daniel feels God speaking directly to him. Retirement allows Daniel and his wife to travel and worship at different churches, revealing the flaws in church law.

Exploring the visible church allows the couple to experience the invisible church and become more forgiving and understanding. That understanding of unity and its role in Christianity gains a boost from an inspirational speaker who will soon join their family. This moving story, as the author writes in the introduction, aims to encourage Christian readers “to be less judgmental of (Christianity’s) different parts and to be more accepting of each one individually and collectively, with love being the primary uniting factor.”

Author Doyle Mosley, a self-employed manufacturer of machined components for river- and ocean-going vessels, has traveled around the world performing on-site specialty machining projects in China, Africa, South Central and North America, Bahrain, Doha and Japan.  Mosley studied ordinance with the U.S. Navy at Charleston Naval Shipyard. He’s been a Christian since boyhood, and he and his wife, Linda, have been married more than 52 years. They have four children and 10 grandchildren.

The author weaves a suspenseful adventure tale featuring pirates, treasure and beautiful women in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

Englishman Jeremy Davies opens an old sea-chest and discovers a journal that captures his father’s true adventures, and forever changes Jeremy’s life. The journal, written in the 1700s, provides Jeremy with a glimpse into the father he never knew, according to the story in this new book. Nicholas describes his capture by a cruel gang of seafaring pirates and the events that follows. Jeremy can’t resist the journal, which relates not only his father’s tale but the story of the curse of the Black Frigate.

“The Black Frigate: A Journal and Record of the True Adventures and Life of Nicholas Davies” captures the searing story of a young man’s maiden voyage and a brother’s betrayal. The Black Frigate soon makes its mark on Nicholas’ soul, bringing him a new measure of respect from the pirates. He avoids the executioner during a short-lived escape from the pirates and after being blooded in his first battle, spies three pirates burying treasure. A beautiful young girl and a pact with a fellow former pirate irrevocably shape his fortunes and that of his descendant in this swashbuckling story.

Author Stephen Kinnaman, raised in upstate New York and New Jersey, has more than 35 years of professional experience in offshore and marine technology. Kinnaman also wrote “On the Panama: A Lionel Oakely Adventure” and “The Most Perfect Cruiser: How James Dunwoody Bulloch Constructed and Equipped the Confederate States Steamer Alabama.” He and his wife, Maureen, live in Chappell Hill, Texas.

Simple Suggestions Enhance Seniors’ Daily Lives, Thanks to New Book

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Live Well and Long: Simple Comforts for Senior Life” by Mary Walden.

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Live Well and Long: Simple Comforts for Senior Life” by Mary Walden.

A woman who hopes to make a difference in her own mother’s life compiles suggestions for improving seniors’ lives, in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

Life isn’t always about adventure and excitement. Sometimes, it’s the simple pleasures that make life enjoyable. Author Mary Walden’s new book contains a variety of simple activities and comforts that add zest to daily living for senior citizens. Although they are designed for seniors, their families and caregivers, the activities in this handy resource can be geared to people at all stages of life or health.

“Live Well and Long: Simple Comforts for Senior Life” offers suggestions for activities as well as how to plan and record them so seniors have something to look forward to each day.  One simple suggestion is to make sure seniors have access to a window, where they can watch the world go by from the comfort of a comfortable chair or bed, keeping connected to the world outside and viewing the world’s natural wonders.

The book includes activities that highlight nature, such as cut flowers, exploring or tending a garden (or even watching a garden tour DVD) and enjoying sunlight, even if it’s from the comfort of a patch of shade. Walden also touches on the emotional side of life, presenting activities based on family, having choices, being treated with respect and sharing laughter. Although not intended as medical advice, the book includes suggestions such as keeping fresh water handy, going for walks, and savoring a refreshing nap when necessary.

Author Mary Walden notes on her website that she developed this collection of practical activities and attitude outlooks to help her own mother as she aged. Above all, Walden hopes to guide seniors to enjoy life. As she writes in the book’s introduction, “Each new day is truly a gift from God, so celebrate life with simple comforts!”

Children’s Historical Novel Tells One Boy’s Wartime Story; Brian Karadashian Releases New Book

Dog Ear Publishing releases “A Flag in the Window” by Brian Karadashian.

Dog Ear Publishing releases “A Flag in the Window” by Brian Karadashian.

The sights and sounds of America at war come to life in this new children’s book released by Dog Ear Publishing. A California boy and his mother wait patiently for his father serving overseas in World War II, but war has a way of bringing unexpected challenges.

All 12-year-old Billy Roarke wants is to have his father back safe and sound. His father, an engineer, is serving with paratroopers in England during World War II. This debut novel features a look at wartime through the eyes of a boy on the cusp of becoming a young man. Although he and his mom live fairly comfortably in Pasadena, far from the front lines, an unexpected event will change their lives forever.

In “A Flag in the Window,” Billy and his mother go about their daily lives, with Billy hanging out with friends when he’s not at school and his mother working in a parachute factory in Los Angeles. When Billy gets expelled from school for badly beating a boy, he gains a new set of friends – and a new respect for authority – at military school. Scenes right out of a Norman Rockwell painting capture the language and images of the mid 1940s in this children’s historical novel. A soda jerk at the pharmacy serves up stories about his days in World War I as he dishes up malts and shakes, and the Roarkes host a pair of servicemen for Christmas dinner. Ultimately, it’s up to Billy to take responsibility for his actions and take the first steps to becoming a man.

This is the first novel for elementary school teacher Brian Karadashian, who’s had articles published in the Los Angeles Herald-Examiner and the Dallas Times Herald. Karadashian, who earned a bachelor’s degree from San Diego State University and a master’s degree from Stanford University, teaches in San Diego. He and his wife, Marcia, have two grown stepchildren and live in Escondido. The cover art is by Richard DeRosset, a maritime and aviation historian who serves as the official artist for the San Diego Maritime Museum and is an official U.S. Coast Guard artist.

Colonial Times Come to Life in Vivid Detail in Yvonne Hilton’s New Novel

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Century” by Yvonne Hilton.

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Century” by Yvonne Hilton.

A first-time novelist transforms her curiosity about slavery in Colonial America into a compelling story about love and rebellion in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing. Set against the backdrop of history, it tells the story of a runaway slave and those whose lives are intertwined with hers.

A desire for liberty spans across time, race and gender. This new novel, set in the 1700s in West Africa, eastern North America and the British West Indies, centers on a runaway slave woman trained to use herbal medicine and in African religion who joins a group of American Indians fighting to keep their land. The book highlights a quest for liberty among blacks, American Indians and whites. Defying masters in loving whomever they please, whites, blacks and American Indians rebel against society by falling in love.

In “Century,” the spirit world influences lives just as society’s pressures and laws do. Anika’s mother, the result of the marriage between a black slave and a white indentured servant, sacrifices to save her family. As tensions mount in the years before the Revolutionary War, Tory sympathizers head back to England to wait out the conflict, changing lives forever. Death and separation bring pain but also the chance for Anika and her son to escape and begin a new life. Anika’s first husband, a slave taken from Africa as a boy, introduces her to the spirit world, an act that eventually allows her to fulfill her destiny. Anika, now a shaman for an isolated Unkechaug village on the run from Long Island, finds herself telling a visiting chief the tribe’s history, which is intertwined with her own. Equal parts love story and rebellion, this engrossing, detail-rich novel offers a glimpse into Colonial life for slaves, freedmen and American Indians, told from their point of view.

This is the first novel for author Yvonne Hilton, who lives in New York City’s Brooklyn borough. Hilton’s love of history and sense of intrigue about slavery in Colonial America led to research in New York, Virginia, South Carolina and Connecticut.  Armed with details from an urban anthropologist about day-to-day living by those who were enslaved in the 1600s and 1700s, she was able to locate fictional events in actual locations. She also explored the history of Long Island American Indians, including their relationship with runaway slaves from New York City and nearby farms.
