Colorful new book helps children cope with nighttime fears.

By Joe Hinshaw

“In The Closet and Under the Bed” is a book about children’s imaginations as they confront those scary things that go bump in the night. Through a series of misadventures, our hero negotiates his own settlement that makes everyone happy and secure.

In the Closet and Under the Bed explores the time in life where a boy comes to terms with his own monsters. He is very creative in his solutions and will probably someday be very successful in business. David was a great resource in reconciling the words to the visuals and we joined those visions successfully in his art. Rosie acted as our go between and spent many hours on the phone relaying messages back and forth. During David’s work he suffered a medical crisis and a major surgery. During the middle part of this process he sat at his easel in great pain to produce this wonderful art and story. By this time I think we both had invested in the book from our hearts and nothing would stop its completion. I hope you enjoy it. I hope you can spend that time curled on the bed with your own children and in the end they can make their own peace with their own monsters.
"In the Closet, Under the Bed" can be found at TotalRecallPress.com and Amazon.com. Don't miss out on this full color, entertaining children's book.

Will he ever find the courage to step back in the ring and challenge Lee to a momentum-swinging rematch? To Tia Anderson, Randy Mays was the one for her. Funny, charming and sexy. But sometimes, when something looks and feels too good to be true, it most likely is and it was no different in Tia's case as the mask comes off and Randy shows her a much darker side of him. Can Tia find herself out of her situation, or will Randy's dark side endanger her life?
A poetry book that is not just a poetry book. With short stories inspired from the poems, Beausejour brings a spiritual, inspirational dimension to both poetry fans and short story fans.

A children’s book based on the teachings of A Course in Miracles

By Raveena Nash

A Tale of Truth is a children’s book based on the teachings of the spiritual masterpiece, A Course in Miracles.

Adam is a nine-year-old who comes across a wise old man called Joshua, as he wanders down a country lane. Joshua teaches Adam about the Separation, according to A Course in Miracles, and about the oneness of all people with each other and with God. Adam asks questions about conflict, the deeds that some people carry out and about the wars and strife that he sees on television. Joshua explains that the ego created a world of chaos and conflict by sending out these thoughts into the world through projection. He also talks about the need to protect Mother Earth and about true prayer, and he discusses a few of the Workbook Lessons of A Course in Miracles with Adam. In addition, Joshua explains how forgiveness helps us awaken from the dream of separation and return to Heaven.
A Tale of Truth is the perfect introduction to A Course in Miracles for children. It simplifies the teachings of this great spiritual work and makes it accessible to them in a light-hearted manner.

This magical orb takes Jonny on all kinds of amazing and jaw-dropping adventures, high into the furthest regions of space and deep into an underwater world full of rowdy Sea Life — who bubble up from Jonny’s bathtub drain to join in silly songs. These include Wall Eyed Wally and his three baby octopuses Stench, Carcass, and Harpoon; five young dolphins, Oink, Jube, Faraway, Blue Sky One Eye, and Sloppy Botty; Porka the Orca, Legs the Crab, and many more.

Climb aboard with Jonny and his friends as they travel across the universe in the Silver Flying Arrow Space Ship, which can travel at twice - yes, twice - the speed of light! Read in amazement as Jonny Plumb’s adventures take him around the world to save Lady Hunter’s husband Sir Ranulf Hunter and his best friend Sir Harry Pinner, who have been taken hostage by the Mad Mullah Mud Monkeys of Drak Gob. And if that’s not exciting enough, you’ll be even more flabbergasted at Jonny’s ongoing battle to save the Golden Globe from the ever present, wickedly savage, and cunningly cruel Rabbcat. Rabbcat can shape-shift into the world’s most evil and terrifying creature known as The Gnud Repeek, a monster who has been trying to steal what he wrongly believes is rightfully his for centuries - yes, the Golden Globe - with all its hidden secrets!
So join Jonny Plumb and all his friends in their adventures, swimming, singing, parping, and splashing below the water in Jonny’s bath. Then speed faster than light across the universe and travel into

DICK MORRIS AUTHOR OF “POWER GRAB”

By Dick Morris

Dick Morris New York Times best-selling author is is interviewed on his upcoming release of “Power Grab” by Humanix Books, contend that President Obama is at war with the Constitution and its provisions that provide for checks and balances.

New York Times best-selling authors Dick Morris and Eileen McGann, in their upcoming release by Humanix Books, contend that President Obama is at war with the Constitution and its provisions that provide for checks and balances. New York Times best-selling authors Dick Morris and Eileen McGann, in their upcoming release by Humanix Books, contend that President Obama is at war with the Constitution and its provisions that provide for checks and balances. President Obama’s style of leadership is proof that he is willing to use desperate measures. In Power Grab, Morris and McGann assert that Obama has embarked on an outrageous and sweeping scheme to decisively — and illegally — grab power away from Congress, the Courts, and the States to appropriate it to himself. Ultimately, under the guise of practicality, the President of the United States has become utterly intolerant and unquestionably dictatorial. He rules on his own by executive fiat and few, if any, in Congress protest.
Power Grab is sure to leave the reader without any doubt as to just how pervasive his usurpation of Congressional power has become. Radio Interview with Stu Taylor.

INTERVIEW WITH SHARYL ATTKINSON, AUTHOR, ‘STONEWALLED’

By SHARYL ATTKINSON

Stu Taylor Intverviews seasoned CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson. In her book ‘Stonewalled’ Sharyl reveals how she has been electronically surveilled while digging deep into the Obama Administration and its scandals, and offers an incisive critique of her industry and the shrinking role of investigative journalism in today’s media.

“Stonewalled” is a harrowing real-life tale that should be required reading for NEWS JUNKIES AND anyone who has asked the Obama White House a question and foolishly expected a straight answer. Sharyl Attkisson’s meticulous reconstruction of her award-winning investigative stories shows how difficult the federal government has made it to commit a random act of journalism, how the groupthink of network news bureaus can be every bit as soul-crushing as university politics, and how buying digital ink by the barrel is no longer an insurance policy against the kind of government surveillance that used to be unthinkable. – David Martosko, U.S. Political Editor, The Daily Mail (UK)
Stonewalled is the story of the Obama administration’s efforts to monitor journalists, intimidate and harass opposition groups, and spy on private citizens. But it is also a searing indictment of the
