Young children have a curious mind and sometimes they ask us questions that we really have to think long and hard about before we give them an answer.

One topic youngsters often focus on is angels. “Who are they?” they ask. “Are they with us now?” At times, children will say they actually have seen angels and talked to them.

If you have a child or a grandchild who is captivated by angels, then you will want to read, Soar with the Angels: A Children’s Book.

"GRANDDADDY" By Cavis Adams — MANA's Book of the Month


As a way to introduce MarketingNewAuthors.com to a new audience, MANA will feature a “Book of the Month” written by one of MANA’s authors.

MANA’s Book of the Month feature is not the traditional subscription-based book service in which members pay for and receive a new book each month. MANA plans to promote a book by a MANA author through its various media channels. Readers may preview and purchase a book on the book’s web page.

Our inaugural book for September 2017 is Granddaddy, a “coming of age” work by first-time author, Cavis Adams. The author masterfully interweaves the method of stream of consciousness to tell the story of the developing relationship between Granddaddy Jeremiah Hunter, who lives in rural Alabama, and his grandson, Curtis, a youngster from Minnesota.  

Other stories are interwoven implementing stream of consciousness with such skill that the reader cannot help but understand the underlying pain and challenges that Curtis’s parents experience as individuals and as a couple. The unifying element is the spiritual strength that Jeremiah Hunter offers throughout the novel. 

As a special offer, purchase a copy of Granddaddy, and receive $5 off the price of another book on MarketingNewAuthors.com's website. A $5 rebate check will be sent to you after purchase of the book, Granddaddy.

A Q&A With Martha Freudigman, Author of "Through The Storms"

Martha Freudigman
MarketingNewAuthors.com welcomes Martha Freudigman, author of Through The Storms, a unique book made up of two stories. One is a fictional murder mystery with all of the twists and turns one would expect. The second story is Ms. Freudigman's autobiography! 

The first part of Through The Storms tells the intriguing story of Marguerite (Maggie) Halloran, a single, "almost" 24 year-old bookstore owner. The store hosted a monthly book club whose members enjoyed reading murder mysteries. 
Little did Maggie know what she was in for after purchasing an old Gothic house in which two gruesome murders took place.

In the second part of the book, Ms. Freudigman, shares the challenges she endured in her more than 80 years of living. Readers will enjoy both stories in this page-turning, fast-paced, book that will keep them engaged from start to finish. 

Following up where the first mystery left off, Ms. Freudigman has written, Through The Storms Again—The Sequel: A Mini-Murder Mystery. The book begins with two murderers escaping law enforcement. These felons and their henchmen terrorize the citizens of the small town of Lincoln.


MANA: Would you please describe to readers what Through The Storms is all about? 
Martha Freudigman: It is a fictional murder mystery with lots of twists that make it unusual.

Is Fear of Failure Preventing You From Becoming An Author?

Do you have a “big dream” that you don’t like to tell oters about? Some people want to be entrepreneurs and quit their boring day jobs, some people want to be authors and share their stories with the world. Howver, few people will admit this if someone asked them what are their dreams or ambition.  
Typically, we don’t admit our dreams and hopes to others because we don’t want them to laugh at us and tell us to get our heads “out of the clouds.” And, if we’re honest with ourselves, we don’t admit our dreams and hopes because we know they have a small chance of becoming reality! We let a fear of failure stop us from not only speaking about our dreams, but pursuing them! 
This is a huge mistake. The reality is when we give “voice” to our dreams by speaking about them, the more we will become motivated to actually find ways to carry them out. 
For instance, if you want to be an author, what do you do? The first step is to find out what type of book you want to write. Romance? Science Fiction? Biography? Young Adult Fiction? Many authors write their first book in the genre they loved to read them most.
Next, visit bookstores, libraries or go online to check out books in the genre in which you plan to write. What do you like about those books? What do you think will make your book stand out when compared to the books already on the market?
Once you write your book and publish it (either print or as an e-book or both), you will be able to legitimately say you're a “published author.”
The point is that with a variety of resources available, including articles, online writer’s forums, and local writing groups, it is not difficult to start fulfilling your dream of being an author. So in other words, if you want to say you're an “author,” then all you have to do is to begin writing! Writing on a regular basis allows you to enjoy what you’re passionate about without downplaying your dream to others. 
Once you start looking at your goals and dreams like this, it allows you to completely forget the idea of failure. Failure, then, is no longer an issue—nor is it an option!

Are You Marketing Your Book Online?

If you're a self-publishd author, chances are your family and friends have bought your book. However, you may still have a lot books left in the packaging box. What do you do with them?  How do you get people who aren't your friends or relatives to buy your book? Well, one of the best ways you can find a new audience for your book is to look online. 
When it comes to selling your book, you cannot afford to ignore the power of online marketing. The fact is that today, the vast majority of self-published authors sell their books online. So, you will want to be sure that you do your best to market your book online as much as possible. 
The first online platform most authors prefer is Amazon, believed to be the biggest seller of books in the world. Having your book on Amazon is almost like having it on a shelf in major bookstore worldwide. However, if you aren’t actively marketing your book, how will people know it’s on Amazon unless they stumble on it?

Now, Ms. Zarzycki is back with her second release, God's Gift To Me, I Share With You–Book Two. In her latest work, Ms. Zarzycki shares her wisdom through a collection of over 220 prose and poems for anyone who needs to make sense of this world and chooses to thrive nonetheless. It is evident that Ms. Zarzycki has done a lot of soul searching and is now confident in herself and works to inspire others.

“This has been a journey of inspiration I wasn’t aware I was taking,” says Ms. Zarzycki, a wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother who has seen and traveled many roads of life. “When I realized all the thoughts I had put on paper had accumulated into something that I wanted to share, I sat down and put two books together. Now, this is the completion of several years of meeting so many people along my journey of inspirations.”

In the introduction of her God's Gift To Me, I Share With You–Book Two, Ms. Zarzycki explains that she was 50 years old when she started to like herself. She tells her readers that they do not have to wait until that age to learn to like themselves. She hopes that her book will help lead readers to their own self-discovery:

A Q&A With Hilary George, Author of "From War to When"

 Hilary George
MarketingNewAuthors.com welcomes Hilary George, author of From War to When. Although Hilary calls herself a "rookie writer," she has indeed written "80 pages of literary paradise on earth" as one reader so aptly described her collection of poetry.

Hilary was born in Singapore of British parents. After fleeing the Japanese invasion early in World War II, Hilary, with her mother and sister, two tin trunks of possessions and five English pounds, found themselves refugees in a strange, new land – Australia.  Hilary and her husband worked two years as missionaries in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. She has lived in the United States for the past 34 years. Her book, From War to When reflects her experiences.

MANA: Briefly describe to readers what From War to When is about.
Hilary George (HG): From War to When depicts some of my life experiences, how they affected me and what I learned from them. It ends with a letter to my children followed by a prayer for everyone.

MANA: Would you explain to readers what the title of the book, From War to When mean? It's assumed that the war is about World War II but what does "When" mean?
HG: World War II changed my life forever but my story is not finished yet. The "When" will be the fulfillment of lifetime hopes and dreams.

Celebrating Poetry And Poets In National Poetry Month

April is National Poetry Month, the largest literary celebration in the world. The annual event was established in 1996 by the American Academy of American Poets to bring public awareness to the art of poetry.

History Month (March). The goal of National Poetry Month is to: 

• highlight the extra ordinary legacy and ongoing achievement of American pets
• encourage the reading of poems
• assist teachers in bringing poetry into their classrooms
• increase the attention paid to poetry by national and local media
• encourage increased publication and distribution of poetry
• encourage support for poets and poetry

What's more, April 27 is National Poem in Your Pocket Day. This is a day when people throughout the United States select a poem, carry it with them, and share it with others throughout the day.

5 Questions To Ask Yourself When Rewriting Your First Draft

If you're writing a fiction book for the first time, don't think that your book is completed and ready for publishing after you've finished writing. This is only your first draft and rest assured, you will have to go back and rewrite some portions of it.

Everyone rewrites in a different way. Some authors rewrite as they're going along while others complete the first draft before attempting any rewriting. It's best to write the first draft before you start any rewriting. This allows you to see the direction that your book has taken. Don't get discouraged if your first draft is less than magnificent. Remember, this is only a rough draft! The average book is about 80,000 words, although a rough draft of a book may be less.

A word of advice: Step away from your first draft for a few days and come back and read it "cold' – as if you're reading it for the first time. Don't rush through the manuscript, take it slow and look at the elements in the most important part of your book – the first page. When determining whether a rewrite of the first page is necessary, ask yourself:

"Dancer & Other Tattered Threads of PTSD Lives: After the Wars" by T. Patrick Devlin

There’s no getting around it, Post-traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD) is real and has affected soldiers of various wars. In his latest book, Dancer & Other Tattered Threads of PTSD Lives: After the Wars, author T. Patrick Devlin has taken the challenges of PTSD  for veterans and conveyed them into three short stories. 

Although the stories are fictional, Devlin does not approach these challenges in a stereotypical manner. Instead, in the short stories, Dad’s TV, Dancer, and Roadkill the author brings clear insight into the lives of veterans, their family members and others who interact with them.

In Dad’s TV, Devlin gives the reader a first-hand account of a son dealing with the effects PTSD has on his father, a World War II veteran. Set in the 1950s, Dad separates himself from his family by means of his new television set:  

To be honest, at no time did Dad ever seem quite right. There was no real normal for him. He hadn’t totally adjusted. I suppose that it was still too soon after the war. He was silent, remote and constantly appeared to crave distractions and diversions. He avoided any possibility of interaction with his kids. The TV set was just one of those diversions. However, in our house, it cemented the separation. The screaming audio and visual imperatives to pay full attention to it and to ignore every other living thing on the planet, were totally effective. 

In Dancer, a dog is rescued from an abusive experience and is taken to a safe home. Yet, Dancer is having a hard time adjusting to her new environment:

Dancer was in another new place. She had been traumatized by the experience of being imperfectly rescued from the agony of her mistreatment as a puppy. She had experienced some time when she was in a safer place, but the wounds to her little brain were probably only being cauterized and not successfully identified and soothed from the damage that had already been done. In her internal desperation to find refuge from her harassed existence, she clung to Arianna like frost on a pane of glass. Our eldest daughter, though, was not in a position to be a healer. She was already burdened by the usual household duties as well as the advanced coursework of her university studies. The chances for the dog to improve were further compromised by the two male members of the family who were seemingly indifferent to the dog’s presence. They were also, most likely, an unpleasant connection to Dancer’s memory of the past. 

A Korean War veteran-turned sheriff of a small town in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula is the main character in Roadkill. Trying to solve one of the biggest crimes the town has ever seen while staving off loneliness and keeping his composure after reliving the nightmares of war are not easy tasks for the ex-Marine:

During the rehabilitation of the lodge, Dukes’ psychological trauma from the war was beginning to heal. The exhaustion from the new job and the fatigue from the labor that he expended on his essential need for shelter, shut out most of the nightmares. As he mended the old lodge, he began to repair the damage caused by the war to his mind while he cautiously reshaped his department.

He took plenty of time to do all three jobs. As a result, he stayed away from marriage. In those few moments of genuine loneliness, he did think of the comfort of having a woman around. “No sane woman would have me” came the instant, unspoken rebuke. The dreams were too violent, too, frequent. When he’d break out from the terrorizing grip of another nightmare dream, he was aware that he was swinging, screaming, or waking up crawling across the floor. “No, this wasn’t something to put a woman through…” he told himself.

Devlin, also author of Redball Mission, engages the reader and places them into the thoughts and feelings of those affected by PTSD. To preview Dancer & Other Tattered Threads of PTSD Lives: After the Wars, go to http://marketingnewauthors.biz/dancer-other-tattered-threads-of-ptsd-lives-after-the-wars/
