My Review:
I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.

Al and Ricky Lyons take a family vacation to Guatemala, a place loved by Ricky's mother before cancer took her away much too soon. What they had planned to be a fun vacation of surfing, sun and sightseeing turns into a race against time and a fight for their lives when Ricky comes across an ancient Mayan tablet. The tablet is wanted by the Santos Meurtos, and they will stop at nothing to get it.

This is a great edge of your seat dystopian novel. I was drawn in immediately and could not put it down. You can easily connect with the characters and the father son relationship is so realistic. My favorite character was Ricky. Even though he had no idea how he was going to save his father, his determination drove him. You could also see him grow as a person during his trek across the country to rescue his dad. This was an wonderful story of faith and courage. Even if you don't read dystopian novels, this book takes you on an amazing cross-country adventure you're sure to enjoy.

Description:

Why do 90% of the people who start trading FX lose money? ‘World-class traders, trainers and authors’ have spent many years exaggerating, misrepresenting, advocating techniques that no one could ever master, and taught out-of-date, worthless techniques is why. Adding to the fact that new traders trust “experts”; they attend “free” how-to-trade FX seminars offered by self-described expert traders; they buy books that “reveal the secrets” of successful traders and eventually have to learn a lot of hard lessons of big money losses. This book will arm you with the knowledge you need to avoid the fate of 90% of new FX traders and in turn, big money losses. How can I be so sure? I was one of the thousands who graduated from the school of big losses. The only thing I became an expert in was losing money. I paid for courses, bought and read books, and purchased a number of software systems when I first became an FX trader. I only wish is that this book had been available then, being armed with these lessons and those learnt from others' experiences. I would have saved thousands of dollars of hard earned money, years of time, and trouble at home. This book details the experiences of seven of us who believed the experts. It reveals the ways FX trading experts misrepresent their success, why the methods they teach don't work for traders. Reading this book before you spend anything on “expert” training, you’ll know what questions to ask, how to get to the truth, how not to get taken by disreputable trainers, and how you can more likely become one of the 10% of new FX traders who actually make money. After two years of planning, writing and editing, utilizing Winsor Hoang’s 15+ years’ experience in the forex market as well as drawing on the experience of others, this book is able to identify the lessons learned and ways to be more aware of the pitfalls of investing in a competitive forex market. With so many “experts” in the market, taking peoples' money and offering nothing of value in return, this book provides a wealth of knowledge that every new investor should know when entering the forex market! The Bull, The Bear, and The Baboon offers an insight into the currency trading market through the eyes of seven people, each with a different reason for becoming a trader. Their individual stories and the ways in which they interact and influence each other provide the reader an eye-opening portrayal of the trading world. Both entertaining and informational, this book reads like a suspense novel and, at the same time, offers practical advice to both the novice and experienced investors. It is a captivating narrative story in what is typically a nonfiction, educational genre. Inspired by the overwhelming number of swindlers that fool the average individual entering currency trading, this book is written for mainstream audiences, weaving very real trading cautionary points into the technical pitfalls, disciplines, and psychologies related to trading.

The Angelic Gene Book Review

The Angelic GeneThe Angelic Gene by Steve Goodwin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Synopsis:
An orphan girl unsure of who she is or why a man wants her dead carries a secret. She will experience humanity. Are you ready? Join Sophia in a heart thumping adventure across England set in the 1870’s, exploring faith, doubt, love and fear. A story, quoted by the editor as “really something special”, you’ll continue to contemplate long after the journey unfolds.

Purchase on Amazon 

My Review:
I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.

Sophia was raised in an orphanage and had no idea how special she truly was. Her best friend Anne came to the orphanage when they were both 4 years old. Little did Sophia know that she was written about in a prophecy that would take the girls on an amazing adventure across England.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. I found out that this is the backstory to Steve Goodwin's Elijah Hael series. Although I haven't read the other novels, my interest has certainly been peaked. I loved how realistic the interaction among the characters were. The bond between Michael, Sophia, and Anne was unbreakable. The things I loved most about the story were the Christian values that it repeatedly taught and the fact that they were backed up with scripture. This was a fantastic tale about faith, love, and God's plan for our lives. A must read for Christians young and old!

The Nightlife London Book Review

Synopsis:

Vampires Aaron and Michelle prowl the dark, gritty, strip clubs and back alleys of London on the hunt for Michael Jamison, the man who stole Michelle's blood and left her for dead. To assist them, Aaron's new master, Urvashi, calls in favors from her friends, Russian mercenary werewolves.

Wolves Katya and Ivan, hunters adept at killing rogue vampires, set aside their animosity for Aaron and Michelle to stop Jamison from killing again – he already has one bloodless victim lying in the morgue.

Jamison, ex-special forces, feels his enemies closing in, but he won’t go down without a fight – and like Aaron and Michelle, he also has powerful friends.

Experience the violent, sensual underbelly of Nightlife London, as Aaron and Michelle mix up a wicked blend of sex, chaos, and mayhem.
Purchase: Amazon  

My Review:
I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. 

Aaron and Michelle roam the dirty alleys and strip clubs in search of their nemesis, vampire, Mike Jamison.  He’s been killing again and the trail stops in London, where another woman has gone missing.  Will they be able to catch him before he kills again?  With the aid of Aaron’s master Urvashi, and her Russian werewolf mercenary friends Katya and Ivan, they’ll do whatever it takes to bring him down.

Although this was book four in a series, it does well as a standalone.  I haven’t read the previous three but I don’t think they would have added much more than how Urvashi got bonded to Aaron.  I enjoyed this book immensely, once I got over the fact that vampires have sex A LOT.  Let’s face it, Aaron claims he’s in love with Michelle yet he’s having sex with every woman that acknowledges him!  I know they need to feed but he’s just a manwhore!  Michelle is pretty bad too, offering sex to get what she wants in return, yes there’s lots of it.  I liked the fact that each vampire had abilities that made them unique, Aaron with his telepathy and Urvashi being a succubus.  My favorite character would probably be Katya, she has such a fiery spirit it’s amazing.  This was definitely a great werewolf and vampire novel, with very plausible scenarios too.  I’ll now have to get caught up on the previous three to see what I missed.  A must read for urban fantasy romance lovers!

Improving social and communication skills in children with autism

Dr. Karina Poirier, author of Unlocking the Social Potential in Autism, says that understanding a child’s unique needs is the key step to dealing with concerns and developing their strengths.

“Bring everything into the light. The worst thing you can do,” she said, “is to ignore the issue. Parents can help their children learn how to communicate better and develop social skills that will help them thrive later in life. Get help early, identify the specific issues you are facing, ask questions, learn everything you can, and devise a concrete and detailed strategy for engaging your child so key skills are developed and strengthened”.

Here are her answers to some key concerns that parents of a child with autism are faced with.

Q: My child can sit through a learning task on the iPad or television; however, he becomes restless and fidgety when working with a teacher. Why?  

A: Your child’s attention system is reactive. Consider how much children learn from viewing television. Teachers struggle to get children’s attention when an activity does not include the sensory kaleidoscope children are used to receiving when sitting in front of the television.  

Key Action: Children must be taught at an early age how to develop the mental tools (attend, remember, think) to engage in deliberate and self-directed learning experiences with an adult’s guidance.  

Q: My child does not respond appropriately to mood changes in others (e.g., when a peer’s mood changes from happiness to distress). Why?  

A: Your child may be lacking the ability to read nonverbal cues. Children with autism often have impaired ability to read, interpret, and process social and emotional messages. Children who are unaware of others’ thoughts and feelings risk not developing the sense of self.

Key Action: Treatment to teach the child the emotional codes that are part of the social experience. The child needs to develop the ability to understand other peoples’ emotions from their facial expression, tone of voice, and body posture. The child should be taught to recognize and interpret how people around him think and feel.  

Q: My child has difficulty with describing his/her day at school, recounting an experience, or relaying a message. Why?  

A: Delayed recall skills utilize episodic memory. Episodic memory allows us to remember past events and share these events with others. In other words, it is how we engage in reciprocal conversations with others. Episodic memory produces a conscious awareness of events that have occurred at any one time; it enables people to remember what happened to them in the past or to conceive the future.  

Key Action: Effective treatment is required for the child to learn about memory strategies and to practice remembering. Through repetition, the child develops not only better recall of past events, but also the skills to communicate the memory of the event to peers or adults during a conversation.

Q: My child is verbal and has good command of language; however, he has trouble initiating conversation with others and taking turns during a conversation. Why?  

A: Children with autism have difficulties in social initiation and social-emotional understanding. Engaging in a reciprocal conversation with others requires the development and interaction of memory, information processing, and expressive communication skills—all of which are pervasive deficits of children with autism. It is not that these children do not desire involvement with their peers. On the contrary, they do have the desire to be socially engaged with others; however, the dilemma lies in the fact that these children lack knowledge of social norms.

Key Action: Effective treatment that emphasizes social norms and rules, and teaches children how to process social information by distinguishing between relevant and irrelevant information in a social situation. Initiating and maintaining a conversation requires a person to have social knowledge, which is knowledge of event schemas.

Q: How much play time is appropriate to include in my child’s learning routine?  

A: For a young child, teaching through play is extremely important. Play gives children something to do with their ample free time; it also serves the important purpose of honing children’s physical, social and emotional development. Play does not occur spontaneously in children with autism the way it does for typical children.  

Key Action: Investing significant time teaching through play focuses the child on developing fine and gross motor skills, interpreting the social cues of other children and adults, and responding to those social cues appropriately. Play can be used to develop the ability to interact with, explore, and, ultimately master their surroundings. Play is an essential part of the learning process, and its ability to mimic real-life scenarios makes it an ideal way to stimulate overall development.

My Review
My fiance has been looking at shower mirrors for quite some time now.  They've either been too bulky or too small or just plain impractical.  Then I came across this fogless shower mirror, it is absolutely amazing.  My fiance loves very hot showers, so our bathroom gets pretty steamy, surprisingly the Cassani Fogless Shower Mirror really does stay fogless!  Because he's also able to shave in the shower, the steam moistens his skin, opens his pores and gives him a nice close shave.  The razor holder is also quite handy, keeping your shaver clean. 

There's absolutely nothing bad I can say about this mirror, it's absolutely fantastic!  A couple of recommendations though, be sure to hang it of of the shower spray and never ever clean it with window/glass cleaner.  They recommend soap and water or toothpaste.  Harsh chemicals will remove the fogless technology.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

The Shift Book Review

Synopsis:


There is a sense of urgency in the atmosphere as God is transitioning what the world has deemed impossible and unbelievable into the possible and the believable. Don’t be alarmed by the "sudden" moves of God.

Pastor Douglass and his family have been positioned for such a move but because of the dense fog of deception that seems to surround them, some in the Douglass family have created their own beliefs, fabricating their own sense of self; negating the truth, God’s truth, even when truth is staring them in the face.  They, like many, are living lives devoid of the knowledge of who they really are and robbing themselves and those they love of their true identity and freedom. Deeply embedded lies from enemy have blinded eyes, impaired hearing and hardened hearts and Angels from the army of God have been deployed. The assignment: the execution of God’s divine design.  Dreams, supernatural revelation and actual attacks from man's ultimate foe will expose all and confirm God’s plan for Xion, Veronica, Zeborah, Bo and Pastor Douglas. Can they handle the truth and surrender? Will the infrastructure of unbelief crumble?  The lives of the Douglass family will never be the same and neither will you, because of THE SHIFT !
 Purchase: Amazon | Author's Website

My Review:

I received a copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.  

The book begins with Xion having this amazing dream. In it, she sees Jesus being crucified, but she doesn't recognize it as such. You see, to her, the Bible was just a book of stories that she has grown up with. She had yet to have a personal relationship with Him, thank God for a prayerful grandmother!


Zeborah is Xion's grandmother. She had a troubled past with an abusive husband, yet through it all, she persevered found God and a good husband. Still haunted by her past, she has kept many secrets. Will God give her the courage to face her past and reveal the secret she's kept for years?


Veronica is Xion's mother. She believes that because her father was homosexual, that she was destined to be a lesbian, she is also a survivor of an abusive relationship with a man. Veronica has yet to have a relationship with God, but she's also having difficulty forgiving and freeing herself from the past.


This was an awesome story of faith and the unconditional love of family. I enjoyed the way that we get to see our prayers in action. Also how angels and demons, influence our thoughts. It reiterates that no matter what we've done, God will always forgive and accept us as long as we ask and believe. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and it dealt with some pretty tough topics. The story was quite engrossing and even had some romance. Another great Christian novel by M Ann Ricks!
