A PERSONAL TRIUMPH FOR ALL TO READ!
Philip Robinson was a dedicated policeman, who believed in serving others. Philip doesn't think he is a kind man, but he is just that.
At the age of 30, Philip is suddenly thrown into a battle to survive what doctors called a CVA, some call the illness a stroke. Philip worked hard to recover from his sudden illness. At the time of his stroke, his marriage was struggling. After the stroke, he and his wife worked hard to rebuild the relationship, things seemed to be getting better until his wife met a younger man at work. She was flattered by the younger man's attention, and eventually the marriage between Philip and her was destroyed.
As many other people sometimes do, Philip had many ups and downs and times of sadness and despair. He had lost his faith in Christianity as a young boy after the death of his young brother.
As an adult, Philip just couldn't come to terms with Christianity and that there was a loving God, who actually cared. However, when nothing else seemed to work for him, Philip turned to prayers. He was hesitant but waited patiently for help and comfort from his prayers to God and continued to carry on the best he could. He was hoping God had heard him when he prayed, for he was in dire need of help.
God did answer Philip's prayers and turned his entire life around for the better with happiness, laughter and another love in his life. That didn't mean, Philip did not have trying times in the future, for he surely did. But, God pulled him through, teaching him to forgive and love again. As Philip says, "I turned to God in prayer and I persevered. Prayer works. For everything I have lost, I have gained a thousand times over."
This book is not about Philip and his faith. It is about enduring suffering and surviving above all odds and learning forgiveness.
I encourage everyone to get this awesome book and read it. The words Philip writes will come in handy when & if you get in the same dire circumstances of being confused and terrified. One never knows what the future holds, does one?
Philip's success doesn't end on the last page of this book. His author profile mentions that, years later, when faced with difficulties again,..."When nothing else seemed to work..."

A WONDERFUL GUIDE for authors and especially Indie authors, like myself, who didn't know the first thing about publishing an ebook. It helped me to publish an ebook of my Award-Winning True Crime book "Fighting the Devil", which was already available in paperback and hard copy.
The guide offers simple step-bystep instructions that are easy to understand and comply with, and Mark Coker is generous enough to offer it free to all.
It is definitely required reading for any author who wants to distribute their work on a marvelous place like Smashwords- the ultimate distributor for major ebook retailers.
Thanks Mark- I can't begin to tell you how much I appreciate you sharing your knowledge and kindness.

The mythical creatures in this novel are larger than life. The author shows the readers glimpses that the main character, Kali Michaels, is a strong and fascinating woman. Early in her life, she meets a man with whom she feels a strong attachment. Her world turns upside down when years later she finds the same man standing in the same place on the mountain peak. She learns he is a half-human, half-angel that helped destroy Earth to send God's children home for judgment. Kali learns many things from Tiamat. She gains extra traits from an accidental contact with the half-angels blood. These traits and her own ability help her survive as she battles to find and save survivors in the post-apocalyptic world. My only complaint is that I wish the author had used a little more dialogue. Other than that I found it to be an intriguing and enjoyable read.

At some times or another in our lives, I believe we have all had to battle anger. The main character in this different kind of novel has a problem dealing with anger. However, reading this novel could help a person deal somewhat with our own unenthusiastic issues and distractions. For I believe all of us have been unhappy at some point in our lives, and I know that negative emotions can drain us of energy and ambition.
Time is too short to be pessimistic and have a defeatist attitude, which is why I do everything I can to keep a positive, optimistic and supportive attitude. We can't be cheerful all the time but it won't break our face to crack a smile.
If and when you get a chance to read this fascinating adventure it might help you find an outlet to happiness, if you feel you need one.
Personally, I like a story that is written in the first person and really liked it that this one had a glossary to help readers understand terms we might not otherwise understand.
"Phantasy" contains some explicit language and overtones you might not agree with, so I suggest you keep an open mind while reading it. That being said, I believe the novel is creative and could peak your curiosity, and who isn't a little curious?

Who wouldn't have nightmares and severe depression when people we love are brutally murdered? The main character in this novel feels as though his life was ripped apart when his brother, father & fiancée were all killed by raiders. He vows revenge and sets out on a path to vengeance. This is an interesting novel and it has very interesting characters with intriguing scenes that the author cleverly conjures up in your mind as you read. Get ready to be transported into a world of science fiction and be ready to gaze skyward.

I admit I like love stories ... This short novel isn’t a scorcher ... it just slowly pulls you in. I think it is a love story with a message: “Don’t let material things come between you and God - Always put God first.” For He knows who holds tomorrow.
As one of my favorite Carpenter’s song goes,”We’ve Only Begun to Live”.
My friends - there is a place where there’s room to grow, with so much of life ahead. I hope each of you enjoys life to the fullest and watch the signs along the way.
I also hope you will shout a big hello to Lauren ... read her work and then write a review for her. She has some charming heroes and spitfire, sassy heroines in her “G” rated stories.
