Nonfiction: The Men, The Myths, The Bargains!

Moses ($1.99) by Jonathan Kirsch: In this thought-provoking read, Kirsch uses words from the Bible, along with modern biblical scholarship, to recreate Moses.

Highly Acclaimed Historical Memoir for Kindle, Apple, Nook, and Kobo

Editor’s Note: THE ATOMIC TIMES is a memoir with hints of Catch 22, Area 51, and Dr. Strangelove- except it really happened. 

“THE ATOMIC TIMES is a gripping memoir of the first H-bomb tests by Michael Harris, one of the servicemen stationed at Ground Zero on Eniwetok Atoll.  Leavened by humor, loyalty and pride of accomplishment, this book is also a tribute to the resilience, courage and patriotism of the American soldier.”

— Dr. Henry Kissinger

Book Description:  The Atomic Times is based on my experiences as an army draftee in the South Pacific in 1956, one of 1603 men used as human guinea pigs during America’s biggest and deadliest nuclear weapons test series ever. Three-eyed fish swimming in the clear waters of the lagoon.  Men whose toenails glow in the dark.  Operation Redwing mixed saber rattling with mad science, while overlooking the cataclysmic human, geopolitical and ecological effects. 

Author’s Inspiration: I knew during the tests that my H-bomb year would make a fascinating book, but everything I saw was Top Secret. My solution was to write a novel, which wasn’t what I wanted. Five decades later most of the government documents were declassified, and I finally started a memoir. But it was too painful to relive that year until I discovered the solution: I learned how to remember with a sense of humor.

Get this highly acclaimed memoir for $3.99 on Kindle, and $4.99 on Nook, Apple and Kobo devices!

Go On a Spiritual Journey Across 30,000 Miles

Editor’s Note: TWENTY THOUSAND MILES TO SEE A TREE follows a spiritual pilgrimage and a personal awakening, all while on a bicycle tour spanning 30,000 miles across twenty-three countries. 

Book Description: Changing the course of one’s life is sometimes the result of making a deliberate personal decision to live differently; sometimes it is by events; other times it’s by your association with others. Had it been left completely up to me, I would have been content to continue pursuing my American dream, the path I was already on. It would not have been by exploring the world from a bicycle. In 2002, I made a sharp detour and followed my husband, Tim, who pried me away from my comfortable western lifestyle to see the world. In doing this, he opened a door that eventually changed my life forever.

Author’s Inspiration: I wanted to inspire people to change their lifestyle and get out the door and explore the world, it’s a fascinating place.

An Entertaining Childhood Memoir You Don’t Want to Miss

Editor’s Note: The first book in the Alien in the Delta series, THE CHILD is an emotion filled memoir about overcoming adversity. 

Book Description: The Child takes you on a journey that highlights the life experiences of a boy from the age of six through manhood. He grew up on the Mississippi River in the Arkansas Delta, but felt out-of-place in that environment. In his home town prejudice and inequality were practice openly. His escape from the Delta was not realized until he went abroad. He takes you on his adventures in the rural south and throughout Europe. He shares with you a variety of emotions including fear, sadness, happiness, and amusement. 

Author’s Inspiration: When I started to think about writing a book about my life I wanted to remember my childhood years as far back as possible. It was such a challenge because you do not know what you will encounter as you try to remember. I actually spent several years recalling my early childhood. You could say I got stuck in the pass. When I finished my childhood years I had a book.
