After enduring six years of marriage to an abusive husband still attached to a destructive ex-girlfriend, this thirty year old young woman discovered that when her burden became unbearable, God was there to deliver her. In Not By Chance, but for the Glory of God, she shares her own story of God’s deliverance so she can help prevent others from making the mistakes she did in choosing a mate. As a young woman, she did not seek God in every decision she made, but rather was searching for love on her own. That choice, you will see by her story, nearly cost her life. Then God gave her a second chance.

This Week’s Amazon Featured Book of the Week is Shamanomics by Giles Conway-Gordon

Now available on Amazon.com!

Shamanomics by Giles Conway-Gordon

(5 out of 5 Stars – 12 Customer Reviews)   

Price: $20.95 Paperback & $34.95 Hardback

The global financial Crisis of 2008 demonstrated the comprehensive failure of Economics and of the theory of economic management which has dominated Economics for more than 50 years. It was, in particular, a disastrous failure for macroeconomists, those economists who deal with the big economic factors like growth, inflation and employment and who act as policy advisors to governments.
     The book reviews the post-Crisis literature, including the accounts of the guilty parties (We Didn’t Do It!), conference reports and the commentaries of central bankers, other professional economists and journalists. Finally, the recent work of some social and political thinkers, with the insights of behavioral economics and randomized controlled trials, are welcome signs of a future where moral and social consequences resume their rightful place as the proper yardsticks for measuring how useful Economics and economists really are.
     With very few exceptions macroeconomists have proven little better than shamans – witch doctors – muttering their opaque ritual incantations and failing in their social function. Yet they continue to enjoy an attention and respect which is wholly undeserved. It is time for this dangerous delusion to stop.
     The book is written in plain language for the average reader. The book’s website – http://www.shamanomics.info – provides more detailed information.
     This book was written before the Corona virus struck but its conclusions remain fully valid.

This Week’s Amazon Featured Book of the Week is Kilo 3: The True Story of a Marine Rifleman’s Tour from the Intense Fighting in Vietnam to the Superficial Pageantry of Washington, DC by Richard W. Foster, Jr.

Now available on Amazon.com!

Kilo 3 by Richard W. Foster, Jr.

(4.5 out of 5 Stars – 24 Customer Reviews)    Price: $33.95 PB & $49.95 HB

The true story of a 17-year-old kid who quit high school to join the Marines. After a short cruise with the 6th Fleet in the Mediterranean, he was assigned to a rifle company in Vietnam during the heaviest fighting of the war in 1967 and 1968. Returning in shock from what he had seen and done, he was assigned to the most prestigious Marine ceremonial detachment in the world: the Special Ceremonial Platoon. As part of this unit, he served at the White House under two Presidents, and at ceremonial duties all over DC. The contrast from the jungle of Vietnam was startling. While fighting constant nightmares of combat, he stood before Presidents, politicians, celebrities and heads of state, all the while maintaining the dignity and poise required for his position. This book is honest, graphic, and yet enlightening, ending positively. For those interested in understanding the Marine Corps and the horror of personal, ground combat, contrasted with the bright lights and facades of Washington politics, this book will not disappoint.

Dregs by Suzanne Hession

(5 out of 5 Stars – 12 Customer Reviews)    Price: $12.95

King Halvar is ill and childless, so he visits the village orphanage, narrowing his search for a suitable replacement to the throne to two young brothers, Silas and Dregz. Halvar knows the new king must be strong, resilient, determined, and most of all, honest. Dregz wins the competition, and his brother Silas, in a fit of jealousy, has him banished to the Island of Dregs, warning the people that “only the dregs of the earth live there!”

But Silas’s actions have dire consequences. Dregz’s son Dreck is determined to uncover the secret his father has kept for years, and as he sets out to save the people who once looked down upon him and his family, he finds himself in a terrifying chain of events. Will he be able to save Silas’s daughter, Princess Elle? And can he defeat Nazaar–the slithery stranger who seems to hold such power over them all?

A Divine Wind by Norman M. Jacobs MD, MS

(5 out of 5 Stars – 7 Customer Reviews)   

Price: $20.95 PB

Price: $36.95 HB

Set in the near future, A Divine Wind takes on a largely unexplored subject as Israel attempts to use “weather control” and neuroscience technology to deal with an increasingly bellicose Iran, whose actions are seemingly, inexorably heading the world towards Armageddon. A cyborg, mental telepathic communication, how to tame and turn a tornado are just some of the visionary sciences to feast on, flavored with a sprinkling of Kabbalah and Jewish mystical wisdom.

The fate of Israel, the fate of the U.S., the very fate of the world hangs precariously in the balance. A seat at the table has been set, awaiting you to dine within the pages of A Divine Wind.

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 Ruth Berkowitz and The Barber’s Daughter and the Pink Frog Pond, Book Two as they appear in features and interviews (such as the one below) in the weeks and months ahead!


Luckily for us, Ruth Berkowitz 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 The Barber’s Daughter and the Pink Frog Pond, Book Two .

OP: Tell us a little bit about The Barber’s Daughter and the Pink Frog Pond.. What is it about?

Ruth: It is about a young girl named Ruthie who loves life on the farm with her family & adores all creatures & animals along with the freedom of country living. Ruthie finds out her family is moving to a small apartment above a butcher shop in a city and her father is not moving with family. Her mother and father are getting a divorce and her father is moving with his new family. Ruthie is only 4 ½ years old and feels so lonely and confused in this new world Ruthie finds herself in. But, she meets a wonderful new friend, Rachel, a Fly Fairy Princess and together they journey to many exciting places while helping many people/animals and creatures along the way. Ruthie and Rachel embrace all differences, all the creatures and animals, along with many different types of gifted people they meet on their many journeys.

OP: Why did you decide to write this story?

Ruth: My writing began when I started the 1st day of Kindergarten Class. Our class was told not to write with our left hand because we would be punished if we wrote with our left hand. I picked up the pencil and all I knew how to write was my name and the alphabet. I went running home that 1st day of school crying because I wrote with my left hand. My mother handed me a piece of paper and said, “start writing, it is okay, you can write with your right or left hand!” I was confused but I sat down at the kitchen table and wrote and wrote my name over and over again as I cried. I found I could write with right hand and left hand. By the end of my Kindergarten Class that year, I was writing with my right hand. I have kept journals my entire life after that year in school.

I began at a young age to write books and wrote about the adventures of my family of 13 children and my life as a member of 13 children in many journals.

When my mother became ill with Leukemia she asked me to publish this book series, called the “Barber’s Daughter” I said, “Yes.” Ruthie and Rachel’s adventures come from my life in a big family and the daughter of a Barber who also was a very talented musician.

The wonderful part of this book series is my mother was in the hospital when I read her the 1st book in the series, The Barber’s Daughter and the Little Window, Book One and described each picture to her from my hand drawings. She was so excited I would put this book in print. The first book published is what I read to my mother that day, word for word and each picture in the book is what I described to her before she passed.

My mother was so pleased with listening to the adventures of Ruthie and Rachel and the Little Window Book One. My mother was my inspiration for the love of writing, doesn’t matter what hand, memoires are forever. I will always remember her on that day in Kindergarten, for giving me a gift I did not know I had, the love of writing.

OP: How did you get your book published?

Ruth: I published through Outskirts Press Inc.

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

Ruth: I believe all children in grade school and all ages will like this book. This series, The Barber’s Daughter, embraces differences and fears many of us have, fear of bugs & snakes, meeting new people, swimming, learning to ride a bike, dealing with older and younger siblings in a larger family, moving to a new place, dealing with divorce and it shows how Ruthie and Rachel deal and cope with all these adventures which somehow helps all along the way. It’s a wonderful way to look at everyday life and how to cope with it as you follow Ruthie and Rachel on their adventures in their new world.

OP: What is special about your book?

Ruth: The main character Ruthie, has many hidden talents, her ability to talk with insects and all creatures along with animals. Ruthie never judges, she sits and watches the world around her and embraces differences of all. She takes her fears and turns them into strengths and insights which then helps others.

Rachel the Fly Fairy Princess is her best friend, but when they first met, Fly’s was one of Ruthies worst fears. Ruthie has many hidden talents but one she wanted the most was the gift of music that her family shared with her Dad.

In these books I share my personal experiences as I lived them as a young girl. Fears, bugs, horses, swimming, meeting new child, writing with my left hand, feeling different because I never played a musical instrument which was so important to my father. Growing up in a big family you quickly learn the pecking order and where you fit in, but I never fit in to this big wonderful, musically gifted family. What is so unique is each person has talent, you just have to find it. I hope this book series inspires people of all ages to enjoy and embrace who you are and be positive with each moment. Being positive with each moment brings happiness. With happiness you can overcome anything life has to share with each you.

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

Ruth: The Barber’s Daughter is based on a true story and my real-life adventures with a little imagination about the adventures of Ruthie and Rachel. When it comes to real life adventures in the 1960s & 1970s no one can make this stuff up. Life in the real world is heart breaking and wonderful at the same time. Life in a very big family where most members inherited the musical gene from Dad, was hard on a family member who did not play a musical instrument; but Ruthie had her writing and pen as her musical instrument. Our wonderful family of 13 children had its hardships, but there is this great silent golden cloud which was never spoken out loud about, which is that each one of us carried within us an abundance of love for each other no matter if we did not share the same Mother. I have tried to share and describe this love of a larger family whose lives went in so many different directions.

The special gifts this book brings is that there is no judgement of what you look like, how you look, talk or walk, it is about your gifts you carry with you everyday which makes each person, creature and animal special. This book is just about life and how to learn to embrace life’s adventures and make today a better place to live and stay positive about tomorrow. A young girl’s adventures with life in a new world with no judgement but an excitement to meet all new adventures positively.

Also, you can find all the information on my website http://www.Ruthiesbooks.com and Facebook, Ruthpremoberkowiz. Also, two of my brothers: Jon Premo and Bob Premo wrote and recorded the music to the theme song “Ruthie’s Little Window” video for Barber’s Daughter Book Series.

Big thank you to these two wonderful talented brothers who are so gifted with their musical talent.

OP: Have you published any other books?

Ruth: I now have 2 books published in the Barber’s Daughter Series. The
1st book is “The Barber’s Daughter and the Little Window, Book One
2nd Book is “The Barber’s Daughter and the Pink Frog Pond, Book Two“ (also includes a coloring book).

OP: Do you plan to publish more?

Ruth: Yes! I plan on many more books with The Barber’s Daughter Series of books where Ruthie and Rachel go on many wonderful adventures.

I am also writing an adult murder mystery book series with some fun & twists with, “who done it.”

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