  1. Tell your readers a little about yourself, where you grew up, where you live now, where you went to school etc. Let them get to know the personal you.
    I grew up in Connecticut and I still live here. My son still lives at home and my daughter is currently away at grad school. I love where I live but don't like the cold weather so I dread the winter here every year. There is such a rich history here from the early settlers that just fuels my imagination every day.
  2. What inspired you to author this book?
    A lot of things. My parents first were a big influence. I grew up in the '80s and they had very modern beliefs about religion for the time and that I'm sure was a big part of what helped to create Enlightened. Then, right around the time, I was about 10 years old, I was starting to get heavily into reading and I first heard the term soul mates and what it meant. I thought it sounded so magical and not only did I want it to be real but I wanted to read stories about soul mates finding each other. I was obsessed with trying to find a fiction story like this. I recall asking the librarian at school if there was one and she laughed at me and said, "No, there are no books about soul mates." which I replied, "Well, there should be!" Over time I realized I would have to write it myself. I just wish I tried to write it sooner.
  3. Where did you get the inspiration for your book’s cover?
    From my story. "We were hurdling towards each other like comets at light speed, coming at each other so fast we were literally crashing into each other. We gave new meaning to the phrase bumping into each other because in actuality we really were"

  4. Who has been the most significant influence on you personally and as a writer?
    This will be my secret for the rest of my life.
  5. What were your struggles or obstacles you had to overcome to get this book written?
    I wrote this story around lots of obstacles. My dad got diagnosed with dementia and passed from it and then a divorce. Plenty of financial ups and downs and always working. My parents gave me a laptop for my birthday when I first started writing this which was the last gift I received from both of them before my dad passed away. I drive school buses for a living and often took my laptop with me too work and wrote while the kids were playing whatever sport or event I brought them too. I wrote on the bus, or in the teacher's lounge, cafeteria, on the grass, etc.
  6. Tell your readers about your book.
    When Veronica lost the love of her life in a horrible accident, she was sure he was gone forever and she would never love again. Then, five years later, she meets her own tragic demise leading her back to the man she loves but with an unexpected twist...


  7. Who is your target audience, and why?
    Enlightened is geared towards young women and teens but is also enjoyed by many others outside of the YA genre.
  8. What do you consider your greatest success in life?
    My children. Those two make me proud every day.
  9. What one unique thing sets you apart from other writers in your genre?
    I don't follow strict rules about how a story should be told. I also won't follow what sells just to make money either. I'm just not a follower in that way. Someone has to be the one who starts the next latest trend.

Are you are struggling with your faith, feeling lost, and not wanted? From the author of the highly acclaimed The Potter and the Clay, Ellis Lucas reveals the story behind the story—from personal salvation to family reconciliation. Wanted is an inspirational account of transformation filled with personal and spiritual truths, and the stories of people Lucas has helped to find their own salvation in God.Wanted is a beautiful testimony related through a constant flow of Scripture.

This book invites the reader to come home to Jesus Christ and to enter that secret place of the humbled heart where Jesus waits for each of us. We can often rush ahead in life without seeking God’s words—motivated only by habitual, selfish plans and desires. Lucas provides solid, scriptural reasons to follow in Jesus’ footsteps with true-life stories to inspire the reader to seek out God and make healthy choices.We are all prone to pride and hard-heartedness and Wanted will teach you that nobody is without hope, whether though addiction, abuse, abandonment or disillusionment in life. It will also challenge all Christians to do everything they can to reach out to those who are considered by many to be unreachable.We are all WANTED.“The personal testimony of Ellis Lucas, and the testimonies of others he shares, give living proof that God loves YOU; regardless of where you have been, what you have done, God not only loves you and WANTS YOU, He is able to take your life and totally turn it around, and make you a living witness of His Love and His Grace, and His Power to change the life of anyone who comes to Him.” – George W. Westlake, Jr, D. Min.“The purpose in my writing this book is to expose the fallacy of Satan’s intentional mental warfare designed to crush the spirit and decrease the stability of our minds.” – Ellis Lucas

  1. SUNITA BIDDU



    Born in a super conservative family and raised in small towns of India, I never knew that I will be a business owner and coach one day. As I grew up seeing my father working day and night in his job, having no time for us, I knew that I am not the usual job kind. I am a free spirit who wants to work when she wants, make as much money as she feels and go wherever she would love to.

    Reaching this point wasn't a cakewalk as I belonged to an orthodox clan where independent girls aren't considered good girls. I was okay being a bad girl than being a suffocated and frustrated human.

    Persistence, focus, and support of some family members and friends got me going and fly higher.

    I am one of the happy and leading social media and blogging coaches today. Living the life I always wanted. Free, on my own terms, traveling around the world, working less than 2 hours a day, owning three successful businesses making 7 figures per month and feeling rich at heart every moment.



  2. What inspired you to author this book?
    Blogging isn't just business. It's someone's effort to express. Thousands of bloggers start their blog every day and over 95% quit within 6 months. The lack of proper education about what makes a successful and profitable blog is making a lot of talented bloggers lose faith from blogging.

    It was painful to see this. I have multiple blogs and they make 5-6 figure monthly income for me. I decided to write this book.

    This book will be an easy recipe to re-build a powerful blog and analyze what's missing in a blog.


  3. Where did you get the inspiration for your book’s cover?
    That cup isn't the coffee. It's tea :) I love sipping my thoughts with a cup of tea when I am blogging.

    And yellow is my favorite color. I am a fan of simplicity and minimalism. I couldn't get a simpler cover but this one.
  4. Who has been the most significant influence on you personally and as a writer?
    My audience.

    They have such high expectations and I have to keep my standards higher with every new post.

    A second big influencer is my own self. I love to see and hear a better writer every morning.
  5. What were your struggles or obstacles you had to overcome to get this book written?
    I planned a short book but it turned out a longer one. Blogging is huge. It's vast. And an attempt to cover the entire blogging in one book was more of a silly thought. I realized it over time and edited several sections. It is more of a concise guide talking about what makes a blog successful instead of making it a step by step blogging guide. This whole exercise and editing wasted a lot of time. I believe that was for good. It gave me ideas of two other books I started writing.
  6. Tell your readers about your book.
    The book talks about 26 ingredients of power blogging. I have used A to Z English letters to talk about these 26 ingredients. A few includes:

    ... How to develop a compelling writing style
    ... What special money pages a blog must have and how to write them
    ... How to promote your blog with over 20 ways
    ... How you can monetize your blog
    ... How to stay motivated until you start making money
    and more.
  7. Who is your target audience, and why?
    Bloggers and stay at home people who are looking to make a full time 6 figure income with blogging
    Entrepreneurs who are looking to build a brilliant brand with a blog.
    Influencers who want to be thought leaders in their industry and take their brand and revenues to the next level
  8. What do you consider your greatest success in life?
    Creating a dream life where I am working less (hardly 2 hours a day and 4 days a week), making decent money and do things I love - traveling, cooking, gardening, writing, thinking :)

    I did this.
  9. What one unique thing sets you apart from other writers in your genre?
    I believe in making things simple and easy. And that reflects in everything I do. My readers usually feel that they're reading their own thoughts - at ease.

Rydel Scott, a brilliant scientist working at a secret military lab, accidentally discovers a form of time travel while working on a project designed to save wounded soldiers in the field.

And Rydel Scott travels back in time to do just that.
But Rydel's project is unstable. Even the smallest change to the past can cause catastrophic repercussions for future generations. An elite military unit goes back in time to hunt Rydel down before he can alter history and possibly kill millions in the process.
The unit and its commanding officers, Colonel John Adams and Unit Commander Ray Catlin, become divided. Catlin, a devout Catholic, claims he witnessed a miracle by Christ upon the unit’s arrival in Jerusalem and fervently believes in Rydel’s mission. Adams hasn't believed in God since he was a boy, and his only concern is the safety of the people in the present. They must now choose between the fate of Christ and the fate of modern-day mankind. They must decide if they will Save Him.

"Our Undead: Abe" by Theo Vigo


As I drove to the store yesterday, I couldn't help but notice all the Halloween decorations which adorned my neighbors' yards. I don't know about your neighborhood, but here in southern Louisiana, especially in New Orleans, home to voodoo and such, we pretty much go all out. Everywhere you look, you see the eerie decorations. What better this time of year than to come across the perfect book to read while waiting on the ghouls, zombies, Darth Vadar's, Jokers, princesses and so many more to knock on the door and say, "Trick or treat." And, I have found the perfect one to keep you on the edge of your seat in Theo Vigo's novel, Our Undead: Abe


ABOUT OUR UNDEAD: ABE


BUY NOW
In a disease-ridden Portland, Oregan, a middle-aged businessman wakes up to find himself lost, undead and alone. A new world waits for him outside the hostel doors he was laid to rest in, one where he might find himself to be quite comfortable... at first.

The dead are coming back to life, and taking ownership of the land. Our zombie walks freely amongst his kin, fighting, feeding and searching, but to what end? Can a walking corpse find solace? When his chance to rest in peace has been stolen from him, can a ghoul find grace?

Perhaps in the emotional vulnerability and unplugged humanity of two teenagers; a girl 17, and a boy 13. Perhaps the coincidental meeting of this unlikely trio will bring some sort of meaning back into the lives of all three, all three who found themselves abandoned and thrust into a nightmare.

Join our zombie, the girl with long blonde hair and the boy as they trek to Hollywood, California on a revealing journey of relationships, morality, and conspiracy in "Our Undead."


THEO VIGO


ABOUT THE AUTHOR

  1. Tell your readers a little about yourself, where you grew up, where you live now, where you went to school etc. Let them get to know the personal you.
    Well, I feel like I'm just a normal 33-year-old guy - uhhh, maybe a bit underachieved. I work a part-time job in a restaurant, and I'm currently rooming with a couple of friends in downtown, Toronto, Canada. I have an older brother and an adorably sweet mom (although she can be kind of sassy sometimes).

    I guess, on a personal level, I love creating, especially in the veins of music, and written word. It's a bit funny and sad that I referred to myself as a bit underachieved because I really do want to achieve - - I guess I'm still trying to figure out what that thing (or things) that I want to achieve is. Freedom, that's for sure. Haha.

    But, through what medium? I spent my twenties exploring different writing, music and business projects. I'd like to spend my thirties creating in the space I feel best in and nurturing projects from my past that I feel have some potential. I'd like to improve at investing in myself and connecting with other people who have their own amazing talents to share. I really don't know what to expect from the future, but I have high hopes. You have to, right? Lol
  2. What inspired you to author this book?
    The main reason this story exists today is that I thought the world was going to end in 2012. Ok ok, I wasn't completely convinced that it was going to end, but I didn't want to take the chance, so just in case, I wrote this book.

    It all stems from the fact that my dad would strongly encourage me to read when I was a child and in my teens. At that time, I didn't read all that much. I'd rather be playing video games. I enjoyed a few short mystery novels here and there, book adaptions of my favorite movies of the time, novels that had to be read for school. I didn't neglect reading completely. In fact, I enjoyed it, but I didn't really realize how important it was.

    When my dad passed away in my early twenties, I took to reading some books he had left behind. The first ones that I started reading were about spirituality, meditation, life after death and such things. Reading them was my attempt to gain some sort of understanding after such a big loss, and I wonder, as he was getting closer to the end of his life if he was reading them to gain understanding too.


    Regardless, reading spiritual books lead me down a couple of paths. First, I began building a collection of business and personal development books on top of the spiritual ones. Reading all of these things inspired and taught me how to express myself creatively. Writing was one of those creative outlets, a mashup of novel and scriptwriting.

    Coming all the way around, I wrote Our Undead because I wanted to honor the gift of reading that my dad gave to me; a thank you. I promised myself, for him, that I would write a complete novel before I died. If 2012 was going to be the year then I had to write it that year.

    I started in February and finished in October. Luckily enough, the world didn't end so I got to edit it multiple times and released it officially for the first time in February 2013.
  3. Where did you get the inspiration for your book’s cover?
    The book's cover holds a hidden meaning. It can't really be understood without knowing the whole story. Beyond this book even.

    I just told an incredibly talented friend of mine what the story was about and he came up with this design which I really enjoy looking at.
  1. Who has been the most significant influence on you personally and as a writer?
    Personally, I guess my biggest influence would have to be my dad or the experience of his passing. Many of my thought patterns and whole attitude towards life changed after his death. It matured me quickly. My mom is also I big personal influence for me, because more than anything, I want her to know I'll be okay if she comes to pass before me. It keeps me ambitious.

    As for writers who have influenced me, it's a bit hard to think about, because although I enjoy writing, I'm not a geek for it, so there's no one writer that I'm a fanatic for. My mind gravitates toward some of my favorite television series; The Newsroom, Entourage, Community, The Walking Dead, etc.

    Writers of movie scripts are very influential for me as well. Scott Pilgram, Snatch, Dumb and Dumber, and Attack The Block are some movies I don't see myself ever getting tired of.
  2. What were your struggles or obstacles you had to overcome to get this book written?
    The hardest part about writing this book was committing to the amount of time it would take to write it. I think that a lot of people, writers and anyone trying to accomplish something that seems grand, find it hard to actually sit down and get started. One reason is that the task ahead of you seems so large. Can you keep it up? Will you start this large task and then stop halfway through?

    My solution was the fact that I had a big reason for writing this book. Having one made it easier to write every day. Writers' block is a common challenge for some authors but I think that when you force yourself to sit down and write, the ideas will come. Get your ideas down and refine them later.
  3. Tell your readers about your book.
    In a disease-ridden Portland, Oregan, a middle-aged businessman wakes up to find himself lost, undead and alone. A new world waits for him outside the hostel doors he was laid to rest in, one where he might find himself to be quite comfortable... at first.

    The dead are coming back to life and taking ownership of the land. Our zombie walks freely amongst his kin, fighting, feeding and searching, but to what end? Can a walking corpse find solace? When his chance to rest in peace has been stolen from him, can a ghoul find grace?

    Perhaps in the emotional vulnerability and unplugged humanity of two teenagers; a girl 17, and a boy 13. Perhaps the coincidental meeting of this unlikely trio will bring some sort of meaning back into the lives of all three, all three who found themselves abandoned and thrust into a nightmare.

    Join our zombie, the girl with long blonde hair and the boy as they trek to Hollywood, California on a revealing journey of relationships, morality, and conspiracy in "Our Undead".

  4. Who is your target audience, and why?
    The target audience for this story would most certainly be people who are like me. If you like zombies, grand adventures, action, feeling sorrow and triumph in a story, movies, goofiness, shounen anime, growing up and overcoming obstacles then I think you might be into this story.
  5. What do you consider your greatest success in life?
    Although I don't feel like I've achieved my greatest success of my life yet, when I look back, there are a few things I am proud to have accomplished.

    Finishing this book is one. Playing and recording songs in a pop-punk band with my friends is the second. The third is heavily preparing the first season of an anime I'd like to have made. I wrote the script for the first episode, springboards for the rest of the season's episodes, and had a pitch bible made with illustrations made. Eventually, I'd like to take the next step and get it animated.

    These are the things I'm currently most proud of accomplishing in life.
  6. What one unique thing sets you apart from other writers in your genre?
    The one thing I think sets me apart from other writers in my genre and in general is the fact that I'm not a trained or studied writer. I didn't go to school to learn how to write novels or scripts, I just took it upon myself to learn with the help of the internet.

    Because of this, avid readers might get annoyed by the style I chose to write this story in. I don't know for sure but reading this book might be a love or hate experience for people.
