  1. I am a small publisher with a BIG book to share. Called ‘Takin’ Over’ it is a very positive message from one of the top rising rap stars in the country, Lil’ B, (Brandon McCartney.) Written in the form of text messages and emails to communicate more comfortably with his audience, Brandon spins out his take on life, music, sex, relationships, society and other relevant topics. It’s a funny, heartfelt book with a message of hope and energy for the coming generation. I will send a copy to anyone who would like to review it! It comes with a free DVD that includes music, Brandon talking about the book, and even outtakes………This is a cool book, let me know if you’d like a copy…..Michael Bowker

    • I recently published a memoir, The Thousand-Petaled Lotus: Growing Up Gay in the Southern Baptist Church. In it, I intersperse short metaphysical and philosophical musings that reflect my spirituality as it is today, with my memories of growing up in a staunch Southern Baptist family in Nashville (“The Protestant Vatican”) in the 1960s and 70s. You can read more about it on my website, http://www.michaelfields.com. I would be happy to send you a copy if you are interested in reading it.

  10. Self-published author of THRESHOLD: A MEMOIR would be thrilled to find book bloggers interested in reviewing her book. Since the print version is still in production, I can send you a compressed file by email, or a PDF, whichever you prefer. Here is a brief description:

    Our families and communities serve as the threshold we cross into our lives. Whether it’s a metaphorical threshold or the actual physical threshold that marks our front door, the crossing informs who we choose to become.
    This memoir is a series of twenty mostly-true stories about one ordinary American family’s struggle to thrive across race and through time and space. From five-year-old Joseph Swope kidnapped and adopted by a war chief to my father blasting up U.S. Highway 41 with a turtle for a co-pilot trying to save a marriage, this memoir reveals what happens when communities fail and how they thrive. These are the stories of people who worked together and shared resources. There’s the smell of wheat dust and sweat and the ozone that precedes a storm and there’s the clang of green beans into a metal pot while friends and family sit on chairs dragged out into the yard where it’s hard to discern the border between fireflies and stars.
    I can remember how safe and comfortable it was when everybody knew my name and they may not have always been glad I came, but I knew they wouldn’t let me “go under.” Perhaps we can invent ways to retrieve that feeling in this new century. These stories can provide a pattern to fill in with today’s new circumstances.

  11. I would love to find those who might like to review my upcoming book with Llewellyn Worldwide; “A Haunted Life.”

  12. Frances says:

    Wanted on Voyage is a collection of love letters written during and after world war two by a couple who were rarely together. The letters are intense, gossipy, romantic and practical. Not a light or quick read, they form the basis for a love affair that survived much tragedy.

    • New Recent History Book Laying Out REAL Facts of 9/11 at WTC Published Online

      As an experienced physicist I have just published a loaded new book, which has 45 color images & 4 tables, showing the real facts of 9/11: How the WTC Was REALLY Demolished on 9/11. It can be ordered online as a paperback, & it can be downloaded online as an Ebook. This book counters 50 erroneous government reports produced by NIST, & provides a scientifically-sound analysis of what really happened on 9/11 at the WTC. Several online reviews of books & articles published earlier stated that I effectively showed the government reports were wrong throughout. This book comprehensively reviews the facts that demonstrate this.

      The book demolishes the myriad error-prone reports that the American people have been presented with on the cause of 9/11. How the WTC Was REALLY Demolished on 9/11 , which can be obtained from the Web in either of the 2 forms listed above for a low price, shows the full scientific facts & evidence of the Sept. 11, 2001 attack at the World Trade Center. Laying bare what happened in the attack for all to see, it shows what really caused the Twin Towers & other buildings to collapse, & the coverup of the facts throughout multiple government reports. Everyone in this nation should know the substantial facts and the evidence through material presented in this book. Too many of the facts remain unknown to much of the public, despite efforts to bring out the truth. This book should be distributed as widely as possible to all Americans, to counter both errors in the NIST Committee Reports & in other independent sources.

      As the author, I am a physicist with over 30 years research experience since receiving my Ph.D. (in Applied Physics from Caltech, 1978), and am also a noted writer and speaker for public audiences. In addition to 3 books on 9/11 I have published online (in 2011, 2013 & now in 2015), I have presented major invited public addresses on the World Trade Center collapse in New York City (2007 & 2010), St. Louis (2008), Des Moines (2009), Austin (2010 & 2013), and Dallas (2011). I has been interviewed multiple times on INN World Report in New York City (both on TV and on radio). Previous to that I had published 4 books and over 30 articles for general audiences, and produced 2 educational public videos that have played several times on over 60 TV stations. These are all in addition to well over 100 publications I have written for scientific audiences.

      Having published 13 books (8 for general audiences), I have been profiled repeatedly in Contemporary Authors and Writers Biography. I have also been profiled for over a decade in Who’s Who in Science & Engineering. I was recently interviewed about this book on NoLiesRadio in Berkeley, CA, similar to the previous interview by them on my prevous book entitled Anatomy of Mass Murders in October of 2013.

  17. Calvert Press announces the release of a new and unique memoir: Breaking Tecumseh’s Curse: The Real-life Adventures of the U.S. Secret Service Agent Who Tried to Change Tomorrow

    From 1840 to 1960, every United States president elected or reelected in a year ending in zero has died in office. Of those seven presidents, four were assassinated. Breaking Tecumseh’s Curse relates the real-life adventures of U.S. Secret Service Agent Bob Ritter. Through enhanced protective methods and procedures, USSS Agent Bob Ritter hoped to prevent a similar fate for the president elected in 1980, Ronald Reagan. Some never before published information regarding the Reagan assassination attempt is revealed. There’s also an exciting look at assassination and the Secret Service including a provocative profile of accused JFK assassin Lee Harvey Oswald.
    Told from a spouse’s perspective, Breaking Tecumseh’s Curse is the heartfelt love story of a young couple’s journey through some extraordinary times. It highlights a dangerous period for the Secret Service–from 1972-1982. During that time, five assassination attempts took place against persons protected by the USSS, more than any other era. Four of the five attempts were directed against presidents, the other towards a presidential candidate. Two of the attempts were partially successful in that protectees were wounded.
    During much of this dangerous epoch, Bob was directly involved in the protective mission of the Secret Service. The work features the historic events of the time and an exciting insider’s look at the Secret Service. The little-known field of protective intelligence is spotlighted. With hope for preventing future tragedies, some successful strategies for predicting dangerousness in individuals are also explored. Bob’s mantra of “desperate people are dangerous people” and assessment techniques developed by him jump off the page at a time when violence, terrorism, and mass murders are all too often in the news. We can change our tomorrows.
    Join Bob Ritter and his fellow agents for fun, adventure, and some sorrow too as they try to break Tecumseh’s Curse.

  18. I am looking for bloggers or readers interested in reading and reviewing ‘Lily and Me in Haut de Cagnes’. It is a memoir written from the point of view of a thirteen year old girl.

  21. Peter Aleff says:

    My 14,000-word Kindle Select booklet “Riddle Rings of Rogem Hiri” describes this mysterious megalithic set of stone rings in the Golan Heights and offers you a new interpretation for it. This structure has led to various proposals and guesses about its probable purpose. The present essay discusses these and adds to them a likely origin of its name which means “stone heap of the wild cat”. It further shows how its builders connected with the sky and its wonders and believed that the world was ruled by numbers, more than a millennium before the Hebrews and Phoenicians lived in that neighborhood, and more than two millennia before the Greek plagiarist Pythagoras proclaimed this doctrine as his discovery.
    The dimensions and ratios of the three main circles at Rogem Hiri reflect important mathematical and astronomical constants. Measured in the recurring length units of 4.7 meters which the archaeo-astronomer Anthony Aveni had found used in their layout and which amounted to precisely nine times the royal cubit used later in Solomonic sacred construction, these three average diameters are 32, a probable 24, and 17 of these “Rogem super-cubits”. The outermost one of these anticipates the 32 Paths of Wisdom embodied in Solomon’s Temple width and altar base, and the ratios and powers derived from its relationships with the middle and inner diameters produce the counting base of ten as well as a good approximation to the square root of two which had much symbolic importance to ancient number explorers. They also yield surprisingly accurate approximations to the numbers of days in the lunar and solar years.
    It appears that the builders of these stone circles designed them to reflect back to the sky their understanding of its intangible but powerful mathematics and of the numbers derived from the cycles of its big lights. The entire structure was a hymn, expressed in stone instead of words, of praise to the sky and its life-ruling numbers. It remains relevant today, not only because the writers of the Bible were rooted in that same soil and built on their predecessors’ relationship with that same sky, but also because modern cosmologists again accept the importance of such essential numbers as the foundations of our universe.

    If you would like to review this short booklet please send me an email to hpaleff@phaistosgame.com, and I will be happy to send you a free copy. Thank you in advance for your interest. Peter Aleff

  22. Looking for bloggers to review my new book ‘My Father’s Prostitute: Story of a Stolen Childhood’. it’s an honest, and sometimes brutal, true story of one man’s struggle growing up in the shadow of childhood sexual abuse. From his difficulties growing up, to his drug addiction, failed relationships, and struggles with parenthood, the author takes us through the ups and downs of a life spent in the shadows, trying to make sense of the events that formed the basis of his being. Sometimes tragic, sometimes hopeful, but never sugar coated, My Father’s Prostitute – Story of a Stolen Childhood takes the reader on an emotional ride which reminds us that the human spirit is more powerful than the demons that haunt us.

    People seem to love it – more often than not I hear of them not being able to put it down once they start. but am having trouble getting the book out there so any blog spots and/or reviews would be much appreciated! Can send you a .pdf or mail you a paperback copy.

  23. “CHEF TELL The Biography of America’s Pioneer TV Showman Chef,” forewords by TV hosts Regis Philbin and Chef Walter Staib, is the life story, on and off-camera, of one of America’s culinary icons, whose fan base was 40,000,000 Baby Boomers – 8X larger than Julia Child. Chef Tell was also my brother-in-law. (I can send a PDF for review.)

  24. Jane Pinel says:

    Looking for bloggers to review my new memoir/biography – the story of my mother’s life.

The second child in a family of ten children, the death of her mother and father launched her from a tiny farming village in northern New Brunswick, Canada, to the streets of Boston. She trained to be a nurse, was involved in World War l, the Spanish Flu Epidemic, the financial Crash of 1929, the changing world of women, and World War ll, all while trying to honor her commitment to her dying mother to “please keep my children together.”
    A gripping story of courage, hard work and love of family.

    Hi All,

    I looking for reviews of my great book.

    My book is titled “You Cannot Find Peace Until You Find All The Pieces” It chronicles a search for my father, a man I desired to meet face-to-face. The searched lasted eighteen years. It led me to discover my ancestry, which provided the documentation that I needed to finally locate my father. I was able to find the plantation where my dead ancestors lived as slaves, brothers and a sister whom I didn’t know existed before I found my living father.

    Thank you
    Marie

  28. Hi! I’m looking for someone to review my book *30ish*. It’s available on Amazon.com in paperback and for the Kindle, or I could email you a copy. *30ish* is a Millennial mosaic made up of creative nonfiction essays, creating a vivid picture of my polychromatic life. Mine is a story of bad luck, dreams deferred and forcing one foot in front of the other when things get tough.

  29. Veronica Li says:

    Would anyone like to review my book, Journey across the Four Seas? It’s a true story of my mother’s life–her struggle to get an education for herself and later for her children. In her days in China, girls were told they couldn’t go to school. But she fought her way through the education system and became one of the first women to go to college. She later took the family to the U.S. so that all her children could go to college.
    Available at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004NSVJ4Q
    I can send it as a PDF file or Kindle book. Thanks.

    Hi guys, I am just a very small time writer. I wrote about my experiences that I had in the hospital with recovering from the brain injury I received from being hit by a car while I crossed the street, I nearly died, but *SPOILER* I didn’t. I have just been trying to recover at home for about a year or so fully focusing on it. My book is on kindle http://www.amazon.com/My-Nightmare-How-I-Woke-ebook/dp/B00P0765X4/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1424223429&sr=1-1&keywords=my+nightmare+and+how+i+woke+from+it I don’t know how else I could send this to you, sorry, thanks for your understanding, I could probably send you a physical copy if I knew where to send it.

  31. Jim Lamb says:

    My new book “Orange Socks & other colorful tales” is a compilation of funny stories I’ve told family and friends over the years. Non-vets will wonder how you can find something to laugh about during a war. As my buddy Juli used to say, “You can laugh—or you can cry.” In Vietnam, I did both. On Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00VH6XR38 e-Review copies available.

  32. Hi Everyone, my new book “Stand For Something or Stand For Nothing” released on July 27th, 2015 on Amazon. Here is the story background…In 2002, Former NBA owner Donald Sterling acquired the Ardmore Apartments in mid-Wilshire Los Angeles, California where Kandynce Jones was living for many years before the acquisition. Kandynce Jones, a Black woman who was legally blind, right side paralyzed due to a bad spinal fusion surgery, and suffered with Sickle Cell Anemia. As the building management started to change due to the acquisition, overt cruelty towards African-American and Latino tenants began to be undeniable. News websites like ESPN.com, Huffingtonpost.com, and latimes.com, later shared that when Donald Sterling had first purchased the complex, he made mention of an order, stating that it was “because all the blacks in the building; they smell, they’re not clean…and, it’s because of all of the Mexicans that just sit around and smoke and drink all day” After this, he said, “So, we have to get them out of here.”

    Kandynce Jones and her daughter, Ebony Jones had to stand up and fight against one of the most richest and most prominent men in the world with no money or big time Attorneys that Donald Sterling had in his pockets, they took a strong stand against the opposition that threatened to make them feel small and invisible. This is a true story of how a mother and daughter prove that even in the face of insurmountable circumstances; proving that it doesn’t really matter who you are or where you come from…Only that you continue to stand!

    I would love someone to read my book and give a book rview. I have received ten excellent reviews on Amazon and eight on Goodreads. I am trying to take my book to the next level and get the word out there while working on my second book which will be about my experiences as an African-American woman traveling to West Africa. My email address is ebonyjones0521@gmail.com.
