Today’s featured interview:
speaking about “Hell's Retribution: Lucifer Unbound series 1 of 3”
This epic fantasy adventure is based on presumed real-life events and is about Lucifer, a powerful cherub, the first of its kind who's a favorite of the mighty Lord of Heaven. Nevertheless, Lucifer lets his pride get in the way of his good sense, thereby corrupting him, and ultimately he is evicted from paradise.
Working with his faithful commander, he sets out to destroy all who live on the earth wherein he now resides. Redemption is the last thing on his mind. Doing his best to corrupt the people of earth by any means, this does nothing but ensure his own unhappiness. Then, his favorite dragon, another cherub who’d followed him from paradise is killed, and Lucifer seeks revenge but the man escapes time and again.
In retribution, Lucifer kidnaps a certain angel he believes the man loves, and he does his best to seduce her. But when Lucifer himself is seduced by his own schemes, the question is, will he find love at last or more disappointment?
The epic adventure is seen through his eyes, as well as several other characters: humans, the Fae, the fallen, and celestials. The quest takes them through Earth, into Hell, up to Heaven, and back into Hell, for a surprising ending. Lest you imagine this is the ending, be not dismayed for their adventure truly has just begun.
speaking about “A Higher Calling: Moving Forward in Your Walk With God”
If anyone would come after me let him deny himself, take up the cross, and follow me. (MATTHEW 16:24)
There is a path that God has set for your life a path that will allow you to be shaped and fashioned unto the measure of the statue of the fullness of Christ (Ephesians 4:13). It is up to you alone to decide to turn from your previous path, take up the cross, and walk with Him.
Elder Shannon Fitzgerald Thomas used to lean on his own understanding and seek the pleasures of the physical world. But then God illuminated his true purpose: to share the good news and spread the gospel to all His people. God made his purpose clear and guided him from his former life of sin and showed him into the way of His light. He now presses toward the mark for the High Calling of God in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:14).
You too have a path set before you; you can walk with Christ and live in truth and goodness. In A Higher Calling: Moving Forward in Your Walk With God, Elder Shannon Fitzgerald Thomas reveals the guidance God has instilled in him to share with the world so that all of God's children might once again hear His voice and continue their walk with Him.
He is waiting for you; follow Him.
speaking about “From Voiceless To Vocal”
From Voiceless To Vocal is a heartbreaking memoir about finding one's inner strength. A story of resilience and courage, this personal account takes us on a journey of survival. As told through the writer's first-hand experience, we see her learn about herself as she tries her best to stay alive, conquer the abuse and manipulation inflicted upon her, and overcome her own demons in the process. Her story proves that it is possible to get back up when you've been knocked down time and time again and stands as evidence that it is possible to find your voice after it has been stripped away.
speaking about “Is This the Mary of the Bible?”
The evidence regarding this salvation issue is examined by a former pre- and post-Vatican Council II Catholic. In this easy-to-read, documented and Scripture-indexed volume you will be exposed to the present-day official teachings of Catholicism on Mary, which parallel what it has been declaring for hundreds of years through various past popes, cardinals, Catholic saints and theologians to the greatest Marian apparitions that have ever occurred. The Mary of Catholicism is so deeply interwoven throughout the whole of Roman Catholicism that it is impossible to logically reject it and still have a trustworthy religious system left to aid one with spiritual guidance. In this publication you will be presented with compelling evidence contrasting the Mary of Catholicism to the Mary of the Bible.
speaking about “The GARDEN and the GLEN, A Fable about Character and the Courage to Be Different”
"You are all different and all perfect, just as you are. Lately, you have become more than that. Now, you reach beyond yourselves, using your differences to help your friends. That is the magic of belonging."
A tiny blue butterfly is chased out of a yellow garden because she does not blend in.
She flees to the nearby forest glen, where she encounters a colorful band of woodland creatures-all of them expelled from the garden for the same reason-being different. The glen provides safety, friendship, and acceptance. However, it's the garden that holds the blue butterfly's true destiny.
A Queen, a mystical potion, and the fate of their natural world hang in the balance. The blue butterfly, and what makes her different, holds the key.
The Garden and the Glen is about the magic that finds us when we're brave enough to be our unique selves.
speaking about “2Connect”
The book, 2Connect transforms the way an individual finds a soul mate using a new science of the mind technology for a more compatible, intimate, and long-lasting relationship. The key that unlocks this secret to finding a mate is the understanding of the predictive behaviors of a person and whether they are compatible with yours early on in a relationship and not after the honeymoon period is over and you are living together and married or worst yet expecting a child. The new "aha" described in this book is identifying a person's true self. The big "aha" is that people are born with innate differences. They have predictable behaviors that may or may not be compatible with yours. Individuals of opposite preferences from yours do not offer a comfortable, long-lasting, romantic relationship. 2Connect's new psychographic technology explains why and educates a person on how to find a good match, a soul mate. Until the discovery of 2Connect technology only happenstance and hormones contributed to the romantic relationship where both partners are so immersed in a strong connection mentally and physically. Sex is part of a relationship and can be playful and imaginative, erotic and passionate, pleasurable and exhilarating but needs to be personalized to the different intrinsic motivations of people and those predictable behaviors that affect a relationship for the ultimate sexual experience. The last best-selling book was in the 70's, The Joy of Sex and it only addresses how people experience their sexuality and not the relationship behaviors that contribute to the ultimate in compatibility and intimacy. 2Connect provides a sexual cognofile report that is personalized to your preferences based on how the mind works.2Connect sets the bar for a compatible and intimate relationship by defining the certain magical feel that is possible between soul mates with love that is so strong the chemistry is not explainable and sex is mind blowing. Seventy photographs and illustrations contribute to understanding key learnings.2Connect defines what a romantic relationship can be. How do you know what it is if you have never been there? Love is the center of everything a person does and the synergy that is magnified when two people find their soul mate. Soul mates feel that their souls are connected no matter the distance. Everything blends together harmoniously, conversations flow seamlessly, you feel their touch when apart and their voice echoes in your mind peacefully. A soul mate is your twin, a reflection of yourself, someone that will hold your hand and walk with you in challenging situations. Your soul mate makes you proud and everything he/she does or says you find enlightening. A soul mate completes you and provides a safe environment for exploring your sexuality in order to reach the highest levels built on total trust. It's like a best friend, but more. 2Connect helps in where to find your soul mate, the one person in the world that knows you better than anyone else. It's someone who inspires you. A soul mate is someone who you carry with you forever. It's the one person who knew you, and accepted you, and believed in you before anyone else did or when no one else would. And no matter what happens you'll always love them and have a special connection.

David Rohlfing’s debut novel, Deliberate Duplicity explores the twisted, vengeful mind of a serial killer, and follows dedicated detective Sasha Frank, who is hell-bent on solving the mystery behind this string of gruesome crimes. A complicated web of clues leaves Sasha and his team with more questions than answers: What’s the killer’s motive? And how are the victims connected to one another? As the story begins to unravel, the ordinarily calm and collected Sasha begins to feel the immense pressure of the case. Will he be able to solve the mystery before time runs out, and bring justice to all who were affected?
speaking about “Finding 42: Cut the Rope”
Finding 42, at its core, is an amazing adventure series. Book 1, Cut the Rope, begins with the author leaving the familiar, New York City, and flying into the unfamiliar, Moscow, Russia.
The author, Benny Mailman, had just gone through some soulful healing in Denver, Colorado, after having been demoralized and drowning in darkness. He had been brought to the doorstep of hell, and ushered through the door. A proud Marine, a loving son, and a joyful, smiling friend had all been ripped away, rendering him a shell of his former self. He learned a difficult lesson in those darkest days: no amount of his Love could heal his mentally sick friend. The year was 2011.
Finally freeing himself from the clutches of evil energy, Benny sought to rebuild his soul through healers. He sought true freedom. He sought love. It was now January of 2012, the month and year Benny turned 42. As he walked in a winter storm, he knew this year was going to be life changing... he just knew.
On October 4, 2012, he began a journey that had no end date. He just went, determined to be true to his soul and live an extraordinary adventure on his terms, thus creating his own reality. When asked how long he would be traveling, he simply responded "I will know when I am done".
Finding 42 is a letting go of the known and often forced reality. It is about a man setting out to prove that a better reality was there for the creating. Within the journey, spiritual growth flourishes and an ancient knowledge is renewed in the strength, kindness, and beauty of the human spirit.
Book 1 is filled with stories and soulful connections with fellow travelers and locals alike. There is the story of Fire Horse in Mongolia, Tom Waits and Starbucks in Moscow, life aboard the Trans-Siberian Railroad, the Great Wall, and even a magical event in Luoyang, China. Fasten your seat belts! I remind you that this is all true.

Award-winning author J.M. Harrison’s quest to find the answers to life’s big questions began at an early age. LISTEN TO THIS: A CHRONICLE OF AWAKENING is a Mind, Body, Spirit autobiography sharing his life’s adventures; paranormal childhood experiences, a brief stint as the lead singer of Frankie Goes To Hollywood in the 1980’s, before discovering his clairvoyant and psychic abilities, and stepping into a metaphysical world of healing, trance channelling and cosmic consciousness.
A mystical death experience in France in 2007 permanently alters his perception, allowing him to realize “the Divine I-less nature of reality”. This life-changing event was the immediate catalyst for writing his first book, WE ARE ALL ONE: A Call to Spiritual Uprising.
