About the Book

It has been said life is not easy. Yet however cliché it may sound life itself is the gift. It is really a lot like moving swiftly through white water. Sometimes the ride will be smooth, sometimes rocky and treacherous. However challenging, as we travel along the way there is both joy and happiness to be found. For author, Dr. Robert Orr the choices we make, the people we choose to be with on our journey, the person we choose to become determines how much happiness we are likely to find along the way.

About the Book

One part memoir and one part self-help is how some might describe Diane L. Martin’s newest book. The book is targeted to both new and experienced managers whose behavior can only be described as manic, thus, the title speaks for itself.  The damage these managers invoke hurts them, their employees, and their organizations.  According to Martin, “In less time than it takes to consume a ham sandwich, some managers communicate to their newbies that they don’t much care about what happens to them after they are hired. What results is truly tragic. As manic manager strikes again, new employees who are otherwise eager to become productive team players instead become bitter and remorseful.”  Martin, is certified as a Senior Professional in Human Resources with more than 15 years of management experience.

About the Book

John A. Brennan’s  latest book titled, “Out of the Ice,” is a history of Ireland which starts at the end of the last ice age and chronicles the many and varied cultures that inhabited an infant Ireland. It follows through and recounts many of the little known historic events that shaped Irish culture, century by century. The story poignantly brings the reader to the present day. John’s writings are a representation of a life’s journey and are intended to inspire and inform the reader of a long forgotten Ireland, its connection with the wider world, and the deep-rooted history embedded in the island’s rocks and soil.

About the Book

In 1984 a former editor at the Missouri Review published a five-page excerpt from Mary Bringle’s originally typed manuscript of The Children’s Bullet, and described it as: “the chronicle “of an American woman, Mary Flynn, who is startled from a vaguely empty and dissatisfying life by a newspaper account of the death of a child, also named Mary Flynn, in Belfast. The child has been killed by a plastic bullet, of the type used for riot control. So begins an odyssey into her Irish heritage and into an absorption with the violent social and political upheaval in Northern Ireland. Traveling to Belfast, she is befriended by a Catholic family. During her stay with them, Mary comes face to face with the ugliness and paranoia within an ‘occupied’ city. In this excerpt, British troops cordon off the neighborhood in which she is living and subject it to a house to house search.”

About the Book

Be prepared for a warm welcome to the world of John A Brennan, an unapologetically enthusiastic Irish raconteur who has found his place in the spoken word scene in and around New York City of late. In his book Don’t Die with Regrets, we join the author racing page by prose page through anecdote and apocrypha—poems too—as he invites us to join in his wild embrace of Irish mist-enshrouded historicity.”

          George Wallace, first Poet Laureate, Suffolk, New York

“Your rich background of travel, work, thought, and adventure are well represented in Don’t Die with Regrets. References to Bob Marley, Newgrange and others tell the reader that he is in the presence of a writer who is determined not to die with regrets, someone who is motivated to action by the word “impossible.” I am a fan. Thanks for a most engaging reading experience.”

John Walsh, Facilitator and Editor, Irish Cultural Society, Garden City, New York

About the Book

If you have ever been in love, broken-hearted, or otherwise loved the wrong someone, you will understand the journey of author, Chantal Ogaldez. KimBlaQue, the real Chantal summons readers into her heart and soul through poetry. Ogaldez understands what it means to be truly vulnerable, truly exposed and then shattered by the very love one expects to embrace. Her poetry may be characterized at times, as raw, emotional, urban, and gritty.

Added to the text are the illustrations of Sharon Cunningham. Sharon has captured the solemnity of the KimBlaQue experience by using the New York City landscape as a backdrop. Both women are truly artists and this collaboration creates remarkable stories through both poetry and photography.
