On The Fault

by Ronald J. Wichers

(5 Stars – 1 Customer Review)

Price: $21.95

Ronald J. Wichers’s “On The Fault.” True grit mixes with true wit in this tragic, yet strangely triumphant tale of how much one man can lose. Following the Vietnam War, life proves bittersweet as Joe Hearns learns that sometimes finding happiness means changing the definition. For Joe Hearns the horrors of combat give way to those of daily life. He discovers that courage takes on a whole new meaning when coping with a world moving at a different pace – the pace of friendship and love. But, in the end, this proves the way out from under the curse of the war no one wanted. “The heart of the planet is broken and the world is bleeding. We come out of the broken-hearted earth and try to mend it.”

About the Book:

cover (39)My Dog is More Enlightened Than I Am

Most of us go through our daily routines oblivious to the beauty of life and others around us—oblivious of the impact we have on the world. So it’s only natural that we consider patterning ourselves after our pets! These beautiful furry creatures are fully connected to their highest selves while giving unconditional love to those who cherish and care for them. By taking our lead from the animals in our lives, we learn how to live our best and fullest lives as well.

My Dog Is More Enlightened Than I Am examines the ways we all struggle and experience difficulties in our journey. You will learn to understand the lessons and meaning behind each past moment you have endured thus far and how to change your mindset and focus on the change you can make. You will come to admire the ways our animals live a life of purpose and how to be more like them.

This heartfelt, enlightening guide also offers tips on relaxation, spontaneity, developing an appreciation for our differences, caretaking, and nurturing relationships. Readers will feel a renewed sense of well-being and knowledge of how to embrace the journey like the pure souls of our furry companions.

Congratulations, Maureen! You’re an inspiration.! And so is your book!

Reinvented by Bernice Schaefer

Technology has created a wide variety of ways to reach audiences all over the world. It takes is a little thinking outside the box and you can market a self-published book in creative, affordable and impactful ways. Consider book tours! Tours are a great way to connect with your readers and technology has made them easier and more cost effective than ever!

Author Bernice Schaefer is taking her latest book Reinvented, on tour — a Virtual Book Tour with Outskirts Press. This will allow Bernice to take her book into the far corners of the globe, all from the comfort of her own home! Keep an eye out for Bernice’s book as she will be featured on several blogs over the weeks and months ahead!


Luckily for us, Bernice was kind enough to answer a few questions as the tour was getting started so that we can give you a sneak peek into the mind of the creator of Reinvented.

OP: Tell us a little bit about Reinvented. What is it about?

Bernice: This is a memoir that follows my journey from childhood to a respected psychologist and marriage/family therapist. The chapters in Reinvented depict powerful chapters of my life: my New York City childhood, marrying and reluctantly moving to Connecticut, opening a drama school, becoming a counseling psychologist, losing my husband, finding and losing another love, and so much more. This book shows my frailties, vulnerabilities, uncertainties, but more importantly my strength and resilience.

OP: Why did you decide to write this story?

Bernice: I wanted to leave a legacy for my family, and after finishing the book, I realized other people might enjoy the story. I published this book because while my journey is unique to my life, these events are relatable to so many other people.

OP: How did you get your book published?

Bernice: I decided to self-publish. At my age, I didn’t want to wait to find an agent who would in turn find a publisher. I thought this would be much more expedient.

OP: What types of readers would be interested in this story?

Bernice: People who are curious about other people and the world.

OP: What is special about your book?

Bernice: I wrote it to leave a legacy for my family and friends and commemorate valuable slices of my life. Reinvented portrays a lifetime of struggle, love, and gratitude.

OP: Have you published any other books?

Bernice: In 2014, I published All That And So Much More through Author House Publishing. Some chapters in that memoir now compliment new chapters and themes in Reinvented.

OP: Do you plan to publish more?

Bernice: Perhaps. I am currently writing a book of essays with three other women.

OP: Thanks for your time, Bernice! We look forward to learning more about you as you visit other bloggers!
