Delphys Rising

I wanted to spotlight the book "Delphys Rising" by Kip Koelsch as my pick for THE BOOK OF THE MONTH!

Delphys Rising is a thought-provoking, speculative fiction thriller.

Genre: Science Fiction/ Thriller / Suspense

Pages: 322 

What makes this book different than similar ones in its genre? Author Kip Koelsch has this to say, "The complexity of the story and the believability of the science involved. I’ve been interested in dolphins (and to a lesser extent, whales) my entire life and I think the extensive research I’ve done for both my books places "Delphys Rising"—even though it is definitely speculative fiction—still within the realm of the possible. Second, I think I’ve created credible, multidimensional characters that adapt and evolve throughout the story."

From the author:  "I hope my readers are entertained—absorbed into the world and characters of "Delphys Rising". I want them to enjoy the story. Second, I hope it makes them think a bit more about humanity’s place in the world and our relationships with the environment we depend on and the other species with which we share the planet. Finally, I hope it enlightens them about some of serious issues surrounding the world’s dolphins and whales and prompts them to seek further information (and maybe take action)." - Kip Koelsch

What others are saying about "Delphys Rising":

 “While Kip Koelsch’s novel DELPHYS RISING, the follow up to Wendall’s Lullaby, is not the first fictional exploration on the allure of human-dolphin communications, strong storytelling, excellent pacing and a highly original plot make the work stand out as an exemplar of the thriller/sci-fi genres.”

- IndieReader 

 “The author has crafted an amazing scenario that seems all the more plausible because of his skillful and knowledgeable writing. The characters all come across as authentic and credible, and the whole scenario leads the reader to believe that such a center exists. I have not read the first book by Kip Koelsch, but Delphys Rising is a stand-alone book and it did not deter me from enjoying and relating to the story. It certainly encourages the reader to pick up the first book to relate to the origin of the story and to the transition of Dr. Evan McMillon. The writing and the dialogue flow well, making this an enjoyable read from the start. An author to watch.”

- Readers Favorite

 “A dolphin communication project produces searching questions for humans in this stand-alone sequel. Koelsch (Wendall’s Lullaby, 2017) narrates in a simple style, deftly moving between characters to weave an intricate story of personal growth, relationships (both human and interspecies), and political and military intrigue. The protagonists and supporting cast are all given weight. Although individually this makes them stand out less, it grants the tale a holistic depth to match the gravitas of its subject matter. The dispersed character focus may rob events of some of their urgency, yet the plot, without ever becoming predictable, gains enough momentum to pull readers in.”

- Kirkus Reviews

Of These, I Am: A Hope to Exclaim the Mind 

I wanted to spotlight the book Of These, I Am: A Hope to Exclaim the Mind by Matthew Jefferson as my pick for the  BOOK OF THE MONTH!

This is Matthew Jefferson's  third book in which he  invites others to journey with him  to uncover the depths of the Spirit.

From the author himself: "My goal is this: That people understand that division is keen and unity is fine- there is a time for each. Do not think it is a sin to question Yahweh God... for what loving father would find shame in his child asking why? Horror and divinity in this world can sometimes beam together like a single hum- and morality seems confusing like a blind man in a maze. And because of stubborn haste, misunderstanding is the worst plague- starting wars and strife in companionship"

An excerpt from his book: 

 Poem twenty six, entitled, "My Dream Come True"

'My dream came true.'

 

Evening orange of the sky

Uneven with the white

ripped clouds

and the orange setting sun.

 

Walking in a meadow

I am such, of tall grasses

and purple tid-bitten buds

on wild flower weeds.

 

Let me breathe the air

of the

untouched field.

 

Don't arrive early,

as I might be here still,

picking the flowers soon to fall,

but full of color still.

 

However,

If you come late,

In a vase you will find wildflowers still.

And a note saying,

'I'm in the meadow still.'

A Broken Child Saved by God's Grace

I wanted to spotlight Sheila Dorsey's debut book "A Broken Child Saved by God's Grace" as my pick for the BOOK OF THE MONTH!

This book is about a young girl's brokenness  that led her into single motherhood, which over time, she accomplished a lot, learned self-love/worth, and forgave others as well as herself, but in adulthood the silence began to destroy her and then God's grace stepped in.

From the author:  "I hope my readers gain an understanding of how silence can destroy you from the inside out. In order to heal you have to speak, forgive, and allow God to work in your life."

“Forgiveness was the key for her to truly experience freedom.”  - A quote from the fiction novel inspired by true events

What others are saying about "A Broken Child":

 “My heart is filled with the Joy of the Lord. This book brought tears to my eyes because the story is very familiar. I am glad that Sheila Dorsey gave a voice to the women of color living in silence. The pain of broken trust and filling voids can kill the spirit. I am so glad I am free now. Thank you for your obedience.” - Demi Rutledge

“This is a read that takes you into the world of someone else and their experiences and struggles. You're taken through ups and many downs and the protagonist's thoughts throughout. After finishing this book, you will definitely be reflecting on your life and ways you could apply some of the strength and patience that the main character gained through the book. Definitely recommend!” - Mysheka Brown

“Sheila, I know this was a hard book to write. I applaud you for letting your readers see what silence can do. You not only gave warning signs for parents, but you also gave the victims side. Thank you for opening up and writing this book.” - Marcia Green

Work Sucks!: A Funny View of a Serious Problem by Spencer Borisoff

Work Sucks!: A Funny View of a Serious Problem

For the month of April, I wanted to feature Spencer Borisoff's debut book " "Work Sucks!: A Funny View of a Serious Problem" as my pick of THE BOOK OF THE MONTH!! 

“Work Sucks” slaps the biggest, baddest bully the world has ever seen - work - square on its jaw.

"Through a very unique voice that shouts and shares a universal message “Work Sucks!”’ readers will gain a sense that someone - FINALLY - is willing to stand up for them against a system that demands we work around the clock from sunrise to sunset - and readers will laugh constantly while doing so. " - Author  Spencer Borisoff 

This book is unique in its voice, expressing work experiences readers can all relate to from a hysterical and poignant perspective that has never  been shared before.

 

What others are saying about "Work Sucks": 

"This book provides a hilarious depiction of work and is a fun book to read. It says everything you have probably experienced about work, but never thought about how to exactly put it into words. The author has a creative way of explaining all of the problematic and horrific elements of work most of us experience during our working careers (e.g. alarm clocks, rush hour, performance reviews, horrible bosses, job interviews, taxes, etc.). It's a refreshing look at the work world as we know it and the author is not afraid to be critical and condemn the entire system, and that is what makes this book so enjoyable as we can all relate based on our own experiences as well." - Fitts

 

"Loved this book! Funny, witty and a easy read. The author is spot on in so many ways. Think I will call in sick tomorrow! Thanks Mr.Borisoff" - Will

 

"Excellent quick read if you’re looking for a unique perspective on corporate America with many laughs along the way. Just the ‘what I really wanted to say’ resignation letters are enough to pick up the book today."  - SouthPaw25

Finding America's Greatest Champion: Building Prosperity through Manufacturing, Mentoring & the Awesome Responsibility of Parenting.

I wanted to spotlight Terry Iverson's book "Finding America's Greatest Champion: Building Prosperity through Manufacturing, Mentoring & the Awesome Responsibility of Parenting" as my pick for the BOOK OF THE MONTH! 

 This book is about changing perceptions for young people in this country, and careers that do not require a mountain of student debt to obtain, while reminding adults the need to offer our best in mentoring and parenting giving our youth what they deserve for success.

From the author,  "I hope my readers gain hope and focus on the opportunities that abound in manufacturing, while they also gain an appreciation for the need to offer the best in both parenting and mentoring. Young people  should be empowered to follow untraditional career paths to find success despite our culture steering them to a 4+ year degree that could financially handcuff them for decades."

What makes this book unique? "I think my book brings in many statistics about manufacturing that most people just do not know, and interviews from over 40+ fascinating people covering not only the perception of manufacturing careers and opportunities for our young people but also the need for the best in mentoring and parenting them in today's challenging world." - Author Terry Iverson 

 What others are saying about "Finding America's Greatest Champion": 

"A must read for people!  This book is very well written on a subject that is overdue. We need to enlighten our young people of this Career opportunity and the financial benefits. Our Colleges are getting RICH from people getting a degree verses to getting an education."  - W Thomas 

"Transformative Book on Youth, Business and the Future.  "Finding America's Greatest Champion" is one of the most influential business books of our era. No other book speaks to business by starting with our youth - as parents, business owners, large enterprise, educators and leaders." - Michele Kelly 

"A rebirth in the way of life that created this great nation!  Finally, someone (Terry Iverson) did something about exposing the positive aspects of manufacturing as a career choice. For far too long now, manufacturing has been looked down upon for some unknown reason. This book will enlighten, inspire, and motivate young and old alike to become more." - Chris D
