I created this group and I would like to provide a place for authors to sell their ebooks on a  site I have been using.  The books get wide distribution .  You can either sell your books on the site or choose premium distribution if it meets their standards.  Once you get to know the system you can generate many books.  The site is called Smashwords.  If you do not know about this site, check it out.  I currently have 37 e-books for sale on the site myself.  Let me know what you think

Coming Soon!

Kate Morgan is helping her best friend, Beth, decorate for her parents’ fiftieth anniversary party at the Storyville Inn, which was formerly the Prescott mansion. While there, they learn the details of the legend surrounding the inn.

In the late eighteen hundreds, Elise Prescott disappeared from her home without a trace. Although there was speculation that her husband murdered her, there was no proof to substantiate the allegations. Now, ninety-five year old Ellen Prescott, Elise’s granddaughter, is obsessed with proving her grandfather’s innocence and clearing her family’s name before she dies.

When Ellen turns up missing and then is found dead in the woods behind the inn, the coroner rules it an accidental death. But her granddaughter, Jennifer, doesn’t believe that’s true. She asks Kate and Beth, who are fascinated with the legend and always eager to solve a mystery, to help her prove that her grandmother was murdered and to find her killer.

The Mindrulers is an award-winning 3-book series by Steve Pillinger, a multi-published author, Bible translator, history buff, and linguist.
.
In Book 1 of this epic Christian suspense saga (The Mindruler), lives collide in a grand battle taking place on another world. A student, a lecturer, a web designer and a retired teacher are forever changed when they find themselves in an unknown reality. In this alien place they are drawn into a deadly battle against the evil Mindruler and his minions. These overlords control people’s thoughts, thereby governing their every move and making them slaves through this ultimate invasion of people’s psyche and self-will. Freedom is at stake and reality will be forever altered if the Mindrulers succeed.  
.
Imagine waking up and finding yourself in another reality, another paradigm, one you don’t know how to escape from! Fantastically written, the book unfolds the characters’ daily lives, carefully developing each of them in a way that draws readers in and keeps them on edge, glued to the page, wondering what happens next, as these four individuals discover the strange and confusing new reality of an alien world. Long-awaited prophecy is being fulfilled in them, though they struggle to believe this at first. But gradually they discover that mindbending is real, and find themselves embroiled in medieval battles with swords and armor. Yet victory awaits them as they learn to rely on One whose power is greater than the Mindruler, despite his use of a nation’s resources together with spiritual and mental oppression to achieve his goals.
.
Guided by a brilliant writer, one will find oneself engaged along with the characters in this epic conflict on a faraway world that holds deep, dark secrets. Reluctantly to begin with, these very ordinary people from Earth learn to accept their role as “Restorers of the Way”; and as they travel from crisis to crisis, they begin to grow into the true Restorers they are intended to be. But they soon realize that the weapons of their warfare are not those one would normally expect. Special ‘instruments’ help them with their task, and they discover that the only way out is to go through! The author has included wonderful maps to illustrate the journeys that make up this grand adventure.
.
This is a well thought-out and fantastically creative book, surely a movie in the making! It awakens fantasy and portrays the age-old dragon’s attempts to steal, kill and destroy. Christians understand that this spiritual battle is real: the author has presented a breathtaking and harrowing look inside prevalent evil, and created a masterpiece of fiction that takes readers to an imaginary world that is both similar and unique, like and yet unlike our own world.

Highly recommended for young men and women who love Christian fantasy fiction and adventure within a truly epic and heroic saga, intertwining spiritual battles of good versus evil.

Magnificently done and highly entertaining! You may get your copy of The Mindrulers at Amazon

Let’s Discover Your Spiritual Gifts by Pastor G. Victor Morrisey Jr. has been written to help others in the body of Christ discover their place in the Kingdom of God through the realization of their spiritual gifts as spoken of in the Bible. Readers will come to know purpose as they understand that they are called, chosen, equipped, and have everything they need from God. This is a comprehensive instructional guide that breaks down this complex subject on spiritual gifts, offering an easy-to-read teaching on the many gifts from the Holy Spirit that will enrich one’s service in the Kingdom, giving great understanding of their own personal spiritual gifts, and how to use them.
.
The author notes that spiritual gifts are not for you, but a service to the body of Christ. With this in mind, Pastor G. Morrisey guides readers through a step-by-step and practical insight of spiritual gifts given by the Holy Spirit. Believers will come to understand their own spiritual gifts, as they are taught each gifts’ functionality, along with Who gives these gifts. By building on the spiritual gifts listed in Scripture, the author also speaks on the authority of Paul the Apostle’s statement in 1 Corinthians 12:1, “Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.” He stands on that statement by Paul. At the end of each chapter, Pastor Morrisey offers a short quiz to personalize the chapter. Each chapter is concise, offering insight and sound doctrine.
.
Invaluable, and inseparable from the Word of God, spiritual gifts will move one forward in the flow of the Kingdom of God. Each believer has various gifts that are given by the Holy Spirit. As an important part of the body of Christ, each believer should stive to understand their gifts and talents to use them accordingly as a servant and as an instrument to the body of believers, as well as to those around them. This is a wonderful and important book to come up higher in one’s walk with God and to learn to be used mightily of God.
.
This book comes highly recommended for new or mature believers alike who would like to become the least in the Kingdom of God by becoming “a servant to all."

Giving the definitions of child sexual abuse (CSA) and the staggering statistics in our nation, coupled with the abuse worldwide – the abuse of children is unprecedented. Our day and age is raging with this sin against the most innocent of beings – children. Abuse comes in many forms and can be quite insidious, thus the author’s efforts focus on sexual abuse. She also gives insight into the psychiatric dynamics of a sexual predator or offender. Her book is well-rounded and an overview on the subject of CSA that gives knowledge, help and guidance as a manual for prevention and protection against such crimes.
.
As a comprehensive handbook, one can glean the contents and find out not only how to use her guide, but understand how to limit internet media and device pornography, recognize strategies of perpetrators, giving tips of what to do and what not to do – parents, caregivers and helpers can help recognize, prevent and protect children against childhood sexual abuse.

With a section on educating your child on this subject, this book takes all the pieces of a giant puzzle, and even sheds light on the judicial system in relation to this issue. With different stages of age, such as birth to toddler, toddler to five, six to twelve, and twelve to eighteen, the author has broken down the different stages of growth, exposing the different levels of opportunity that sexual predators may use against a child at these ages, along with age appropriate environments and care providers.

Reina Davison speaks to children, telling them they are “Overcomers.” This is a wonderful truth in God’s Word, as she begins the book by the definition of what an overcomer is. Opening children’s eyes to the truth of God’s purpose and plans for them, she goes on to describe God’s gift of free will. Describing Good Touch and Bad Touch; she elaborates on these two and what that can encompass. There are Good Touch people and Bad Touch people. Her book gives hope to children who have or have not experienced abuse by speaking the truth of God’s love and care for their body. She also teaches children how to prevent abuse by giving them the tools to know the difference between a healthy relationship and unhealthy relationships.
.
Writing from a Biblical perspective, yet incredibly gentle and simple, Reina Davison gives hope and guidance that exposes the darkness and sin of the enemy lurking in our lives. These people are unsafe and “No Touch” people as Reina explains. Her premise teaches children the principle of becoming “Overcomers” in Christ Jesus. This is a fantastic book that teaches wonderful and enlightening spiritual truths to children. (Note: This book just may encourage adults as well; teaching them that they are overcomers!) I personally enjoyed the uplifting truths to her book and thought…
I wish I had a book such as this when I was a child. You will be delighted by this book as well.
.
As a guidebook, this book teaches parents, caregivers, family members, etc., to understand what safe behavior is in and out of the home. Her Body Safety guide in the back provides a checklist for adults to adhere to in protecting children. With beautiful illustrations, the author sheds light on walking in the truth of God’s Word, while giving them instruction of their enemy (the devil), the Bible, and Jesus, offering hope and encouragement to look to Jesus as their help and Savior. Her book shows that God has a good plan for them and cares for them. She shares that they are Overcomers and can defeat the enemy (the devil) and that because of Jesus, they too can choose to be of Good Cheer (be happy). 

.
This book comes highly recommended for all children who need to be taught encouraging truths about God’s Word, and especially is a tool to be used by parents, counselors, pastors, child psychologists, medical personnel, and lay persons to teach about healthy sexual boundaries.  
.
To tell you the truth, this is one of those books parents should utilize in teaching their children about bad people that sin and touch inappropriately. She has given a list of resources in the back of the book, and is an advocate of ending child sexual abuse. Written with grace, wisdom, and sensitivity to children’s pure intellects, this book does a wonderful job in tackling a difficult subject.

Christianity today has become what can God do for me, instead of what I am to do for God. Pursuing godly purposes has now been intertwined with the pursuit of wealth, security and a way to eternal life that the Scriptures do not preach.
.
Dr. Danson Ubebe refers to the first century Christians that only preached Christ crucified and recognized Jesus as the Shepherd who came to fulfill the Prophets and the Law. Somehow, Old Testament and New Testament teachings have now been woven together such as, “the chair of Moses, tithing, fasting from abstinence from food, and other traditions of the Law,” per the author. In this book, the author presents Scripture’s perspective vs. man’s perspective, offering the truth vs. a variation of truth. Dr. Danson E. Ubebe asks readers to choose for themselves after reading Scripture, as referred to in Deuteronomy 30:19, “…therefore, choose life, that both you and your descendants may live,” asking a poignant question, what is the truth? Therefore, readers can delve into this book to find truth, read the Bible for themselves and discover the teachings on eternal life, salvation and the way of truth.
.
Readers might ask themselves, what is the way of truth? As the author points out, the true Gospel of Jesus Christ is the way of truth. One would have to read what the Bible speaks on these matters to become more Christ-like and as such, the author provides a format for the building of Christ-like character that includes “holiness”. Specifically mentioning the role of the Holy Spirit as “the anointing,” the author concisely takes the readers through Biblical discourse back to the beginning of creation, Adam and Eve, the Fall of man, and God’s purpose for creating man, helping readers understand the brevity of the matter and the inerrant spoken Word of God as eternal. All want eternal life, but there is only one way, as the Scriptures will prove what is acceptable according to Scripture versus man’s opinion.
.
As noted, the role of the Holy Spirit to interpret Scripture and lack of knowledge of Scripture has left a void, even a vacuum that some may explain as a giant pit, and a dark hole which from there is no return.
.
Within this book, he urges all to become a “student” of the Word and to look into the Bible for themselves to find truth. His teachings are Biblically sound and this book tells the truth that today’s Christian preachers, pastors and those who teach the Bible have made Christianity a huge platform for their own enterprise. (This attitude does not pertain to every person preaching, but involves a large share of those that might use His Gospel for their own profit.) This is not what Jesus preached in His Gospel and not what He intended. The Gospel is not a get rich scheme.
.
A highly recommended read for all that are searching for truth! You may get your copy of Doomed Christianity & The Unshakable Lifeline at Amazon.
