“Go Back Jack” Comes to Life With Music

By Maureen Kellar-Kirby

“Go Back Jack”, a new book published in 2018, contains original song lyrics that have been written, recorded and performed by the author. “Ten Miles West of New Orleans” is one of these songs.

Picture a boy who impulsively leaves his poverty stricken home outside New Orleans, hopping a train and "riding' the rods" during The Great Depression. He dreams of, "going' down to the riverside", only to find that "Papa went away and mama couldn't stay". This song, on You Tube, "Ten Miles West New Orleans", brings the book "Go Back Jack" to life and turns the story into a movie, complete with music soundtrack.
Take a moment to listen to the song and be transported back in time. Sympathize with one who regretted leaving home as a youth, and longed to return and make peace with his past.

Guidance on Meditation

By Raveena Nash

Channeled advice for those who meditate

In my book It’s All An Illusion! I deal with the topic of meditation, which is something I have been doing for many years, although at times I find it difficult to calm the mind. I have recently started to do a little verbal channeling. So I thought I would ask for advice about how to improve my meditation. I received the following from my Spirit Guides: “To improve your meditation, you have to be at peace. People normally meditate in order to become peaceful but, actually, you need to be at peace first before you meditate. When you are at peace and you are not worrying about anything or thinking about anything or planning anything or remembering anything then you will be able to meditate. Meditation itself does calm you and make you more peaceful, but if you don’t have any true inner peace before you attempt to meditate, especially if you have a problem on your mind, then meditation will really be very, very difficult."
The advice continued: "Those with an overactive mind find meditation very difficult, and you just have to keep going. When you find you are thinking too much, stop and go back to meditation later."

Free Book Bonanza!

By Betty Vaughn

We’re starting the summer off with a bang! Award winning author Betty Vaughn offers the first of her four book series, Run, Cissy, Run, FREE for Kindle.

This offer will start Thursday, June 1, 2017 and run through Monday, June 5, 2017. If you like this book, you’ll LOVE her other three: Man in the Chimney, Turbulent Waters and The Intrepid Mill LaRoque. Your free download is as simple as searching Run, Cissy, Run on Amazon and downloading it for your Kindle. You would think Cecilia LaRoque has it all: a loving father, wealth, beauty, social position and a devoted suitor. She doesn’t. Crushed by a cold and critical mother who soon absconds to live with a dissolute lover, ‘Cissy’ struggles to prove herself worthy of love and respect. She could not have foreseen in her teenage years that the genteel and privileged life she had led would come to a crashing halt with the outbreak of Civil War, a bitter struggle that would tear her world apart. Despite the hardships and inherent danger, she seizes the opportunity to forge an unorthodox role for herself as a spy.
Run, Cissy, Run is the 2013 award winner for historical fiction from the North Carolina Society of Historians. Don’t miss out on this great offer and stay tuned weekly for more free books.
