Author Gabrielle Williams Brings In High Ratings on Goodreads for “The Guy, The Girl, the Artist and His Ex”

Gabrielle WilliamsGabrielle Williams has been receiving tons of praise for her latest novel, “The Guy, The Girl, the Artist and His Ex,” a stylish, sharp and sassy take on love, life, and fine art. Released in April of 2015, the story has been receiving widespread acclaim from its readers and book critics, as it offers an interesting perspective from each of its imperfect characters, and is described as a “must-read” by a five-star rater on Goodreads.com.

More about “The Guy, the Girl, the Artist and His Ex” from Goodreads:

A rock chick.

An artist with attitude.

A girl with a past.

A party animal.

Four lives collide when one of the world’s most famous paintings is stolen. It’s a mystery that has the nation talking, but while Picasso’s Weeping Woman might be absent from the walls of the National Gallery, in other parts of Melbourne the controversial painting’s presence is being felt by Guy, Rafi, Luke and Penny for four very different reasons.

Life, love, art and one giant party intersect in this offbeat comedy about good intentions, unexpected consequences and the irresistible force of true love.

Gabrielle Williams BookAlthough Ms. Williams didn’t complete her education at school, her career is proof that an academic path isn’t the only route to success. She has an impatience about her, which has helped to spark an innovative flame and inspired her to write some of her most pioneering works. She is more interested in getting out there and pursuing her dreams than learning about someone else pursuing theirs. Her personality type is incredibly individualistic, and she doesn’t like doing things the way everyone else does them– she is a firm advocate of taking the road less traveled. Her latest book, ‘The Guy The Girl The Artist & His Ex’, was inspired by the real life theft of one of Picasso’s most famous paintings – The Weeping Woman. In order to achieve an authentic tone throughout the novel, Ms. Williams spent a great deal of time researching the 1980s, art fraud, art forgers and Picasso. She is grateful to have a fantastically supportive husband, as well as excellent friends. When Ms. Williams is writing a book, she goes the extra mile to ensure that the information she includes in the book is accurate for the setting. Her last two books were set in the 1980s, and she did a lot of research to understand current events and incorporate them into the overall tone of the novels. After completing her research, she sits down to write, type her ideas and work on the finished publication.

Ms. Williams has been shortlisted for a number of prestigious awards in Australia, and is interested in increasing her connections. She is also interested in traveling for her work and speaking publicly about how to use humour to hook teenagers in to reading, a subject she is quite passionate about. Her novel, “Beatle Meets Destiny,” was shortlisted for two literary awards in 2010. Her second book was shortlisted for the Gold Inky Award. “Beatle Meets Destiny” was voted as one of the top 50 reads of 2010.

Rebecca Scott Young PostcardRebecca Scott Young – Rich Tips for a Lifetime

New Xulon Offers a Rich Taste of the Emerald Isle

J. Craig Bell’s new book, A Year in Eire – Inspirations from the Emerald Isle serves to fulfill a unique mission of using the rich history of Ireland to build richer, spiritual lives. It is a daily devotional to assist anyone through the vicissitudes of life. Jim Bell introduces readers to notable Irish poets and writers whom he has used for inspiration; he includes their wisdom and wit, and adds his commentary to create an unforgettable book.

Jim Bell "A Year in Eire"
“Many people have a desire to see Ireland because of its fabled past, and this book acts as an incentive to the reader to make his or her own news by a trip to the Emerald Isle,” states the author. “As well, encouragement and inspiration are always a propos at any time in life.”

Though Canadian by birth, and Scottish by heritage, Jim Bell has “adopted” Ireland as his second home and has spent extended time there over the last forty-five years. His skills as a teacher, writer, and communicator have allowed him to present the vignettes in the book. His family, by marriage, has Irish roots.

"A Year in Eire" - J. Craig BellXulon Press, a part of Salem Communications Corporation, is the world’s largest Christian publisher, with more than 12,000 titles published to date. Salem Communications is the country’s leading Christian communications company with interests in radio, Internet and magazine publishing. Retailers may order A Year in Eire through Ingram Book Company and/or Spring Arbor Book Distributors. The book is available online through xulonpress.com/bookstore, amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com.


A Year in Eire was born out of Jim’s desire to leave a legacy. Hence this set of readings came to fruition after many visits to Ireland. In a series of vignettes, some serious and others whimsical, he takes the reader through Ireland and offers inspiration. There are enough and more for one per day each month. The entries were generated from weeks soaking up the culture of Ireland over a period of 45 years. They cover all areas in Eire and in Northern Ireland, from wild Donegal to the ethereal southern coast, from the tiniest villages to throbbing Dublin and Belfast. The content can be enjoyed by anyone of any background, despite the fact that Christian faith is the foundation. It can also serve as a sort of travel guide.

Jim finds inspiration in many areas of his life: the education and tutoring of youth, literature, family, God and of course Ireland. He was born of Scottish descent, is a true Canadian (Brantford, Ontario), but when he married into his Northern Irish family, his focus changed. He has visited Ireland some 25 times with some stays as long as 2 months, and during those periods, his love for Irish authors grew. Jim has taught French and Japanese in England and Vancouver, and currently teaches English in Vancouver where he lives with his wife, Esther now that his two daughters have married, both to men of Irish descent!

Ian Prattis Releases “Trailing Sky Six Feathers”

Ian Prattis - Trailing Sky Six Feathers Book

TRAILING SKY SIX FEATHERS:
NOW AVAILABLE

My 2008 book Failsafe: Saving the Earth from Ourselves was dedicated to Trailing Sky Six Feathers, a South West Native American medicine woman from the 18th century. My new book is her story and how her life and mine interconnect in the 21st century through a journey that spans four centuries. The collision of past with present lives creates a radical new compass to guide me through the difficult times we live in.I am grateful to the many hearts and minds that helped me complete this lifework. Trailing Sky Six Feathers illuminates issues that will affect our world for generations to come. This hero’s journey is like Indiana Jones meets the Buddha with a dash of Celestine Prophecy; shining light on the darkest elements of the human condition, including my own.

Worldwide Branding Member Ian PrattisOverview of Trailing Sky Six Feathers from the
Publisher, Xlibris

The author is a Zen teacher, Poet, Professor Emeritus, Founder of Friends for Peace, Spiritual Warrior for Planetary Care and Social Justice. In this book he navigates past and present life experiences from brutal raids on Indian settlements in 18th century Arizona, insane sea voyages off the Scottish Hebrides in the 20th century to surrender to The Muse in the 21st century. These screenplay epics weave together to create inspiration for a wide range of spiritual seekers, environmentalists, educators, Generation X and Y, feminists, students and academics alike.

We are staring into the abyss: climate change, ecosystem and financial collapse, nuclear breakdown, terrorism and anarchy. Instead of being eaten up by the abyss “Awaken Spiritually” for that transforms everything. Our world has become an unpredictable beast. We fail to work with it intelligently. We must take back control of ourselves and this is a spiritual matter.

An exciting Hero’s Journey, as we follow his journey to accept The Muse capable of transforming his karma. The story has the author stumbling through the first part of life, then standing strong in his own sovereignty in the latter part. In India, Arizona, France and Canada’s wilderness, he goes to extraordinary lengths to transform four centuries of karma.

Readers will travel the pages with Ian as he learns to embrace The Muse — Trailing Sky Six Feathers — his South Western Native American wife and medicine woman in whose arms he died in 1777. Trailing Sky Six Feathers vows to find Ian (then known as Eagle Speaker) in a future time, to help him complete his purpose despite resistance from Ian’s intellectual and logical mind to remember that pledge in this lifetime.

Over a period of thirty years, four extraordinary medicine people enhance his process of remembering, while Trailing Sky waits patiently from the distant past. Ian learns how to reconfigure his understanding of time, place, consciousness and even Carl Jung’s psychology, where he chose to listen to the feminine voice of Earth Wisdom rather than to the multitude of competing voices in his deep unconscious.

Readers will be inspired as they watch Ian’s intention and strength of purpose transcend the patterns he had carried since childhood. Past life memories finally collide head on with the present, all thanks to the persistence of Trailing Sky Six Feathers, who refused to give up. Karma is reversed and the internal battles are over, as Ian begins to live his life as a Meditation for Gaia. The relentless shadowing of this engaging Muse brings understanding not only to Ian, but to anyone engaged in overcoming the darkness of their past.

Trailing Sky Six Feathers caps the author’s long-term fascination with consciousness. As a Professor of Anthropology and Religion he has taught courses on Ecology, Symbols, Engaged Buddhism and Meditation Systems. He is a healer, mentor and educator, able to encourage people through example to find their true nature so that humanity and the world may be renewed. Ian’s story is offered as a gift to our planet, as his purpose in life is to share his wealth of experience on how to live in harmony not just with ourselves but with the place we call home… earth.

In 2010, after an intense internal dialogue with his Muse, Trailing Sky Six Feathers, Ian asked her if he should write her story. There was a long silence that stretched into infinity until he finally heard her affirmation. Ian stood up and reached for his backpack and took out a writing pad. There was a gold plated fountain pen in the pack, though he used it rarely. This story had to be hand written. He inserted an ink cartridge into the pen and sat in a chair overlooking the sea and mountains on the west coast of British Columbia. Putting his pen to paper he started to write the first line of this book:

“Put down your weapons, my husband,” she said quietly with steely insistence.

Engr. Monique S. Sidaross, MSCE Believes Improving Engineering, Construction, Businesses, and Women Engineers’ Status Requires Social Change First in the Legal System and Laws in America

Author and Worldwide Branding Member Eng. Monique S. Sidaross is a female structural engineer that strives to make a difference in American society through her faith and courage and cause social change for women engineers and well as the civil rights of all engineers

Author and Worldwide Branding Member Engr. Monique S. Sidaross is a female structural engineer striving to make a difference in American society, and to cause social change for women engineers and the civil rights of all engineers

Engr. Monique S. Sidaross, MSCE is the Director, General Educator and Engineer at Moni Sid & Associates, and the renowned author of “POSITIVE SOCIAL CHANGE?: Check this journey; How heritage, multi-cultures, doctoral-research influenced Civil Engineering Between Greece/Egypt/America,”  a book that gives a revealing look into the conditions of the American infrastructure. Engr. Sidaross has conducted research on American culture, academic framework and system, which she feels is in dire need of reformation for the best interest of the American public.  She has also concluded that these renovations would be prudent for the constructive development of nations, and the new generation. In her book, Engr. Sidaross points out that in her research, many Americans that have lived and worked overseas have expressed satisfaction over living in America.

Engr. Sidaross has faced and overcome a number of obstacles and personal hurdles, which she has also used as motivational forces to demonstrate as some of the many hindrances thrust forth upon Americans in this day and age in her book, as well. She tackles the topic of bribery, covering her own experience with The Department of Education, which, she says, attempted to coerce her to pay a kickback of $10,000, on top of an additional, fraudulent amount of $9,700 to deny the approval of her student loan. In her own experiences, she was able to secure the help of the ABI, IBC, and UCC, as well as the office of California governor Jerry Brown, however, she feels that others may not be so fortunate.

“POSITIVE SOCIAL CHANGE?: Check this journey; How heritage, multi-cultures, doctoral-research influenced Civil Engineering Between Greece/Egypt/America” – Engr. Monique Sidaross

Engr. Sidaross has said: “I was lucky to obtain my five years of engineering education and license from Egypt, which along with Greece, possesses and encompasses the oldest history in engineering and mathematics.” Over the years, she has travelled throughout Europe and then to America, where she became a member of the ABI, IBC and UCC, and the international university Walden University, where programs also included international travels to explore cultures in relation to her doctoral research interest. Her doctoral study is in engineering management for “positive social change.” In conducting her research, she has deduced that improving engineering, construction, businesses, and women engineers’ status requires social change first in the legal system and laws.
