What Day Is It? Everyday Seems The Same

by Nancy Panasci

(5 Stars – 5 Customer Reviews)

Price: $21.95

Nancy Panasci’s “What Day Is It? Everyday Seems The Same” is a story that helps to facilitate parents and children with what a new normal might look like with the presence of the COVID-19 pandemic in their everyday lives. Coronavirus became a household vocabulary item in the spring of 2020. Cities were placed on lockdowns and every human was encouraged to wear a face mask when in public. Social distancing became a mantra. Schools were canceled, sporting events were canceled, and all types of entertainment were canceled. Parents were confronted with working from home and school age children received online education. This book features Hope and her parents as they strive to make each day of the week special, helping to replace monotony with purpose as families learn to live in a changing world where “normal” is forever changed.

Self-Publishing Author Nathan Roberts Discusses I’ll Fix America Tonight (well, at least by the weekend)

Author Nathan Roberts is taking his latest book, I’ll Fix America Tonight (well, at least by the weekend) on tour – a Virtual Book Tour, that is, with Outskirts Press! Technology has created a wide variety of ways to reach audiences all over the world. All it takes is a little thinking outside the box, and nowadays you can market a self-published book in a variety of affordable and impactful ways. Virtual book tours, for example, are a great way to connect with readers from all corners of the globe, all from the comfort of your own home. Join Nathan Roberts and I’ll Fix America Tonight (well, at least by the weekend) as they appear in features and interviews (such as the one below) in the weeks and months ahead!


Luckily for us, Nathan Roberts 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 I’ll Fix America Tonight (well, at least by the weekend).

OP: Tell us a little bit about I’ll Fix America Tonight (well, at least by the weekend). What is it about?

Nathan: My book proposes creative, revolutionary, apolitical, nonpartisan, and outside-of-the-box solutions to some of the societal, economic, and governmental problems hampering America as a country.

OP: Why did you decide to write this story?

Nathan: I am frustrated by people on both ends of the political spectrum constantly turning to government officials to “fix” their problems and those of our country. A country made for the people, by the people, and of the people should not turn to government. They should fix problems themselves.

OP: How did you get your book published?

Nathan: I went the self-publishing route through Outskirts Press.

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

Nathan: Those who like humor and self-deprecation along with reasonable people who see the good in others instead of the bad first, those who reject political labels and can recognize the good parts of left-wing and right-wing ideas/policies while rejecting the disastrous and immoral ones.

OP: What is special about your book?

Nathan: In addition, my book is a buffet of ideas. When you’re at a buffet, you don’t have to take every food item. Doing so actually might lead to health problems. I mention this in the introduction. If a person dislikes one idea, they do not necessarily have to discard the whole work. I propose creative solutions that have never been tried before but which can give all people on the political spectrum at least a part of what their agenda states while doing what is more important than power grabs; solving problems.

OP: What differentiates it from other books in the same category?

Nathan: Political commentary and societal critique as genres are sorely lacking in humor and suffering from an overabundance of self-importance. I wanted to make people laugh along the way, because I refuse to take myself so seriously. In addition, most books of this nature are written by pundits, former politicians, and self-styled experts. They are not written by the people who are in the trenches, solving problems every day. Thomas Paine puts it best when he says: “Of more worth is one honest man to society and in the sight of God, than all the crowned ruffians that ever lived.”

OP: Have you published any other books?

Nathan: Yes, my first book is entitled Other-Land and the Extraordinary Birthdays. It is a young adult fantasy that is an homage to the works of J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis; my favorite authors. My second book is entitled Randomedy. It is a comedic novel that is a random mishmash of silly plots (some of which are satirical of blockbuster movies and novels) in which I set out to prove that it’s possible to be funny without being vulgar or profane. It is also intensely personal. I wrote it at the time of my divorce when I was so discouraged and depressed by life circumstances, I thought I had lost my ability to be funny anymore.

OP: Do you plan to publish more?

Nathan: Yes, I plan to publish more books. I am a busy single father with two businesses and a full-time job to handle, but I do intend to write more books if given the chance. I’d love to sit at the side of a lake for seventeen years and churn out a monumental masterpiece like The Lord of the Rings, but if given seventeen years off work, I’d probably end up watching Netflix most of the time anyway.

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

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Nathan Andrew Roberts has led a pretty interesting life, but probably not anymore interesting than yours. He used to be an English teacher and purposely violates many of the language’s conventions of grammar, spelling, and word construction in the writing of this book. So that’s pretty legit.

The Diverse Artistic Universe of George H. Rothacker: A Memoir with Pictures

by George H. Rothacker

(5 Stars – 7 Customer Reviews)

Price: $19.95

George H. Rothacker’s “The Diverse Artistic Universe of George H. Rothacker: A Memoir with Pictures.” How important is DNA to the development of an individual as opposed to the teachings he or she receives throughout his life? George Rothacker addresses this and other aspects of his personal development as he takes you on an artistic journey from childhood to a lifetime in the profession of art, design and creative thinking that has endured for more than 50 years. The memoir offers the reader a glimpse into the influences of his two artistic parents, and maternal grandmother who strove to elevate her family beyond the working classes. It also provides a portfolio of the development of the artist/writer own work, and the insights into the choices he made, and the people and circumstances who guided him throughout his career. “Those who are not both blessed and tortured by an artistic nature often don’t understand the jagged and often impractical path taken by a people in the arts,” says the author. “It has taken me to the last segment of my life to see the precipices upon which I walked throughout many of my years, and how fortunate I was to survive and realize the dreams imagined by my maternal grandmother.”
