Ken Crow

3d-finalIn 2009, the infamous Santelli Rant ignited a nationwide grassroots movement against wasteful government spending. Known as The Tea (Taxed Enough Already) Party, the phenomenon spread like wildfire across the fruited plain, with the specific purpose of restoring Constitutional principles and fiscal sanity to Washington, D.C. By 2010, the everyday Americans who comprised the bulk of the Tea Party had made tremendous inroads by swinging the House of Representatives back to Republican control. It seemed that this political tour de force was well on its way to recapturing the Oval Office in 2012. But a funny thing happened on the road to the White House. What began as an earnest movement comprised of America-loving patriots was soon sabotaged by opportunists with a self-serving agenda. Combined with the naïveté of inexperienced candidates for office, nefarious schemes from Republican Party operatives, and a glaring lack of organization, it’s no wonder the Tea Party’s efforts to influence elections has fizzled out spectacularly. All is not lost, however. In his new book, Ego in a Tea Bag: How Greed, Corruption and Deceit Threaten a Great American Movement, author, blogger, and political activist Ken Crow delves into the roots of the Tea Party, exposes the profiteers of patriotism, and lays out a practical, workable plan for achieving the goal of limited government and securing the promise of the United States of America for generations to come.

For Lieutenant Keith Schneider of the Brevard County Fire Department in Florida, guarding his every neighbor is a solemn responsibility. But how do first responders like him cope with the 24/7 grind of gruesome EMS calls, raging infernos, and internal political strife when there is no real outlet available to them?

With exceptional courage and honesty, he offers an insider’s perspective of the profession, pulling no punches. From bogus lawsuits and leadership failures, to heroic rescues and miraculous recoveries, he ll draw you into the stressful world in which first responders live and work in a never-ending effort to save lives and serve their communities.

On December 15, 2021, Mosha, son of Gnosis, god of Light, time travels and releases the Seventh Symbol inside the Great Pyramid in Giza. This event creates a Gold Capstone on the pyramid and initiates a powerful energy that will transform the Earth and her unsuspecting inhabitants over the next seven days.

As the Earth ponders the miracle at Giza, Gnosis, from aboard his Gold Triangular Starship, “transfers” Mosha, and his twin brother, Eber to New York. An Eye-opening visit to the Statue of Liberty reveals to them and the world that perhaps Lady Liberty’s Torch has attracted much more than “the huddled masses of the world yearning to breathe free”.  Was she a gift from France or perhaps a gift from an ancient advanced civilization awaiting the right moment in time to be reborn?

Travel with Mosha and Eber to Washington DC and stand on the final battlefield of Light and Dark. As a battle of wits ensues between Gnosis, god of Light and Draco the Dragon Serpent of Darkness. Will America be the “shining city on a hill” and lead the world into the Seventh Seal of Light, or will she be the Dark Corridor for entry into the Sixth Seal of dystopia and destruction?

Daria Anne DiGiovanni

WaterSigns_book_portraitMadeline Rose is a sweet, sheltered and eternally youthful young woman of 25—the youngest child of a prominent Philadelphia neurosurgeon. Despite the unending support of a loving, close family, she battles formidable insecurities, thanks to a recent, bitter break-up with her first real boyfriend and a turbulent adolescence characterized by a few extra pounds. Unsure of her future, she struggles to live up to her potential as well as her highly educated pedigree, given her fortunate placement in an impressive ancestral heritage. Still adjusting to civilian life after four years in the United States Navy, handsome, affable and ambitious Ken Lockheart has two goals: to rise above his blue-collar, Shore town roots and to marry his true love. Though the epitome of the classic, all-American male with his boyish good looks, six-foot frame and broad, muscular body, he retains a basic humility borne of a relentless work ethic and an inner drive to succeed. When a chance encounter in a Somers Point nightclub initiates an unexpected relationship, neither one of them is prepared for the ensuing odyssey of heartbreak, personal growth and spiritual development that fuels their individual life lessons and leads them full-circle to a divinely guided conclusion.

What if you woke up in a different world – only it wasn’t a different world? For fifteen year-old Harper Lewis, that’s the dilemma she faces upon awaking in a jail cell in the year 2050 after The Shattering. In this dystopian Earth of the future, strange creatures, airships, and steam set the backdrop for a war between two brutal factions: the inhuman Dagon and the immortality-obsessed Malucians.

With the help of newfound friends Z, Cricket, Baldr, Annie Devlin, and Captain Yazu, Harper must fight her way out of this prison and find her way back home to 2013. But when circumstances conspire to test her will, she finds herself in an unenviable position: Should she risk a return home, or join her friends in battle against the evil forces of the Malucians, led by the despotic Donald Carver, and the cyborg legion of the Dagon, led by the demonic Abaddon?


Dr. Scot Hodkiewicz

GTHbyGTH_cover_72dpiIf you want to hear God laugh, just tell him your plan. Dr. Scot Hodkiewicz was happily living the American Dream, having followed his own Great Plan to the letter… Step One: Become a vet. Step Two: Get a good job. Step Three: Get married and start a family. But as he would discover, as he drove down the interstate one October day with his wife and three young children, God had an even greater plan for his life. Left with a mangled body and a broken spirit in the aftermath of a head-on collision with a drunk driver, Dr. Scot entered his own personal hell of pain, addiction, and potential tragedy. Initially filled with anger, hatred and self-pity, he would come to understand the power of forgiveness and that his struggles were ultimately the path to his salvation. God’s plan for him was so much more than he could ever imagine. By going through his hell, he found angels to guide him everywhere, and he discovered that heaven is not something we find after death; it can be found right here on Earth. We only have to listen. Join Dr. Scot on this miraculous journey of Getting to Heaven by Going through Hell.



Maureen Miles Bucci

Maureen Miles Bucci was sharing a wonderful life with her loving husband until her world was turned upside down by a diagnosis of endometrial cancer in 2011.

Having lost a sister to this life-threatening disease, she was already unhappily acquainted with cancer – a formidable opponent. However in the aftermath of diagnosis, Maureen firmly resolved to fight her unique battle as though she were entering the ring for the ultimate boxing match – the outcome of which would mean the difference between life and death. While she was fully prepared to struggle and suffer, she was not willing to concede. Along the way, Maureen developed some practical coping methods for both patients and care-givers through the process of journaling, which later became the foundation for A Snobby Girl’s Guide to Dealing with Cancer.

Thanks to the hard lessons gleaned from experience, along with her refreshing honesty (borne from a genuine desire to guide others through treatment and recovery), Maureen’s writing is raw and edgy. She pulls no punches while addressing and answering many of the taboo questions for cancer patients and their care-givers, in order to adequately prepare them to go the distance.

A Snobby Girl’s Guide to Dealing with Cancer is part memoir and part guide book. In her own raw and edgy style, ovarian cancer survivor Maureen Miles Bucci offers cancer patients and their care givers practical advice in going the distance against this formidable opponent.


Shlomo Attia

STSCoverWEBShlomo Attia was born and raised in Tel Aviv, Israel, Shlomo Attia is an entrepreneur, engineer, and lifelong spiritual seeker. During his childhood, his insatiable thirst for knowledge and truth often conflicted with his traditional Jewish upbringing. In 1990, Attia relocated to the United States, where he set up a commercial installation and appliance business in South Florida. In 2003, a Near Death Experience following a horrific motorcycle accident ultimately led to the creation of his provocative novel, Steps To Salvation.

Step One: The End Days

Energy shortages. Starvation. Skyrocketing medical costs. A corrupt justice system. Biased education. Political castration. Religious conflicts. Rampant ignorance. A world ravaged by war, chaos, centralized control, and destruction. Ever since the time of Abraham, man has been ruled by his animalistic nature — with devastating results. From historical atrocities to totalitarian political systems, individual liberty has been under relentless assault. For souls repeatedly reincarnating into human bodies, achieving spiritual advancement is fraught with peril, regardless of the pre-selected circumstances prior to birth.

Step Two: Catalyst to Armageddon

In the year 2012, a gruesome act of terrorism violently disrupts the  G20 Summit in Chicago, sending the souls of twelve world leaders to The Other Side where Moses – God’s selected Project Manager for a second time in history – leads a team of Advanced Souls in advising the designated Salvation Twelve of the Divine’s ambitious new work for them on earth. But what exactly is Salvation in practical terms? What does it mean for vital industries like energy, education, food, medicine and money? How can commonsense innovation allow all of God’s people to have financial security and peace of mind? How can the One God Religion finally assure human beings that there is no death—only a continuous cycle of life? With formerly reviled Israeli Prime Minister Eyal Grad showing the way, these leaders will embark upon the brutal but necessary Armageddon War and a 400-year Race Unity Experiment as a prelude to Salvation Time.

Step Three: Salvation Time

In the year 2412 in Arusha Africa, nervous seniors in Mr. Bauer’s history class at the Race Unity Regional High School are taking a difficult final exam—one that signifies the end of the Race Unity Experiment or another 400 years of isolation. Will these students forced to bear shameful names like Hitler, Stalin, Manson and Tung demonstrate their knowledge of the Steps To Salvation and admit to their own family history of dishonor? Graduation, liberation of the Race Unity Region, an incredible voyage on a magnetic trans-global bullet train, and the final phase of reparation all depend upon it. But can juvenile adolescents live up to such a monumental task, even with the assistance of a sage teacher like Mr. Bauer? If so, can they count on the immature Adolf Hitler and the hyper Eva Braun to make the final, necessary payment on the End Days’ karmic debt?


Lori Colombo-Dunham

ROTRCoverMost women harbor dreams of a fairytale wedding and marriage. And while some do achieve it all, they are in the minority. For most of us the reality of living out our daily lives with another person demands compromise and commitment. Yes, it takes two to make a marriage, but someone has to take the lead. Why not let that person be you? That’s the timeless life lesson author Lori Colombo Dunham learned when an unplanned pregnancy rocked her entire world back in 2001. Having only known her baby’s father for a short time, she agonized as to what God’s plan would be for her marriage and family once she and her partner decided that embarking upon an unanticipated marital union was the right thing to do under the circumstances. So she bid her girlhood dreams of an elegant church wedding goodbye to exchange vows in a sterile county courthouse, mourning for what could have been. Little did she know that inauspicious beginning would lead to a magnificent marital and family life beyond her wildest dreams.
