stay tuned for updates

Greetings from Down Under Australia! 

G'day mate, I have been here with the Koalas and Kangaroos since January 2020 when I sat down to pen my story. Nine months later and my book was published September 2020 and I still have not left the country.  Thanks for taking the time to stop by and visit this website. 

I am no longer active on Facebook or Instagram. Nor am I on Twitter. Unfortunately my FB account was hacked and then within 48 hours my new account was shut down and suddenly I was put in FB jail. FB is in the process of cleaning up my previous accounts and deleting, I have also shut down my instagram. Join me on goodreads dot com and author updates will continue on that platform.  It all works out for the better, no worries, less screen time for this Sailor.  

*Please kindly note that I will NEVER ask for donations of any kind or endorse any individual, company, corporation or entity. I do NOT solicit, offer employment or services of any kind. Any person doing such is doing so without my knowledge, consent or impersonating my identity on social media. I intend to keep my character, conduct and   conversation  to be one with the utmost integrity. However, I do acknowledge, thank and give credit where and when due. Thank you for reading the first post blog here on this webpage.      

                                                    THANK YOU!

A heartfelt THANK YOU for taking the time to stop by and visit my webpage to learn a bit more about me as the artist, sailor, and now author. I am like an onion with endless layers and I am more than just the artist, sailor and author as I have learned that in life at any moment, divine intervention can shift you from waiting on it, to walking in it.  A new chapter is commencing in my journey and I hope you will join me in this exciting adventure ahead. 

I would like to express my gratitude to you for taking a moment of your precious time to spend with me here on my website. Wishing you and your loved ones a year filled with health, happiness, and much joy.

                                                    HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY

 

Countries that celebrate Mother's Day on the second Sunday of May include Australia, Denmark, Finland, Italy, North America, Switzerland, Turkey and Belgium. In Mexico and many parts of Latin America, Mother's Day is celebrated on May 10th of each year.

Most countries around the world celebrate Mother’s Day including most of Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, India, and Japan on the second Monday of May. Many Arab countries like Egypt, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, and more celebrate Mother’s Day on March 21 (spring equinox). Some countries like United Kingdom and Ireland and others celebrate the Day on the fourth Sunday during Lent and call it Mothering Sunday. Many eastern and southern Eurasian countries including Russia celebrate Mother’s Day together with International Women’s Day on March 8th.

It is a time to honor mothers, grandmothers, and great-grandmothers for their contribution to family and society. Since it is not a federal holiday, businesses may be open or closed as any other Sunday. If one is unable to take the mother figure in their life on a cruise vacation getaway, kindly consider gifting this book as a heart warming story and alternative vacation escape.

THE TITANIC

On this anniversary day, worldwide fellow seafarers and passengers take a moment of silence to remember those who perished at sea on the TITANIC. Your journey and memory lives on in hearts, film, music, media, stories, publications, memorial sites, and especially in the thoughts of those in the cruise and maritime industry. As a sailor myself, my heart and prayers are for the safety of those who are at sea each and every day. Once the sea has touched your soul, life on land is never the same.

PUBLISHERS WEEEKLY

Publishers Weekly, familiarly known in the book world as PW and "the Bible of the book business," is a weekly news magazine focused on the international book publishing business. Its international coverage includes up-to-the minute book, book selling and publishing industry news, book reviews, author interviews, deals & rights, ebooks, apps & digital publishing, self-publishing, seasonal announcements, bestsellers and more!

 

Publishers Weekly is targeted at publishers, booksellers, librarians, literary agents, authors and the media. It offers feature articles and news on all aspects of the book business, bestsellers lists in a number of categories, and industry statistics, but its best known service is pre-publication book reviews, publishing some 9,000 per year.

The magazine was born in 1872 as The Publishers' Weekly (the article and the apostrophe were later dropped), a collective catalog where publishers pooled their resources to create one common listing of new books, issued each week. The aim was to keep booksellers and librarians informed of forthcoming titles, but an array of features and articles were added as years went by.

He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.  John 8:7 KVJ

CONVICTION 

Do you recall the last time your mind or heart was convicted?  What would you do if you were in such a situation where you were desperate to fill your stomach or thirsty for water or in a situation of temptation?

In my book, I included examples of things that do not match up with Christian or some religious values. I purposely included these life examples (not all my own personal examples but things I witnessed) to demonstrate that people will always struggle with conviction in their heart and mind as this is human nature.

I included in the story the main characters' thoughts of conviction about the contraband and some examples of the lifestyle choices in the cruising industry so that the worldwide seafarers would be able to relate.

Moreover, such incidents penned would hopefully elicit readers to have a better understanding of what a person just might be pushed to do for food and water. There are some people who may not be spiritual, interested in religion, God or whom may be searching for meaning in their journey of life; they may never pick up a Bible or attend a church but may consider picking up this book. 

Perhaps someone in the maritime/cruise/travel industry or any individual reading this book may be able to relate to how despite all the worldly temptations and delights, God can still use a broken individual for His purpose.

GERMANY, AUSTRIA and SWITZERLAND

Thalia is a chain of more than 200 bookshops in Germany (a country with fixed book prices) and subsidiaries in Austria and Switzerland. Thalia, mainly owned by Herder Publishing Group, is a prosperous enterprise which can afford to sustain relatively large, well equipped shops with many books in stock and long opening hours.

 

The fixed prices for books in Germany give smaller competitors a chance and still Thalia has also adopted single book shops. Moreover, there is support for local businesses in the way that every Thalia chain store has a section for local literature (featuring local history, vernacular etc.), keepsakes and related articles.

The company early on picked up the concept of multichain marketing and therefore taken a stake in an established German online book shop. In 2008 Thalia committed itself to the German e-book market and made a deal with SONY in regards to Sony's e-book reader. The growing demand in e-books convinced Thalia to announce the release of their own device. In the same year the "Oyo" (basically a German version of the 4FFF N618 was launched in cooperation with Medion, a company well known for its previous co-operations with Aldi.

Thank you Thalia for making this book available on your platform.
