parker-j-cole-bannerIt’s the elephant in the room. Abortion affects the lives of millions. In Black America it is a statistical fact that 20 million lives of black children have been lost to abortion.

VaughnPromo

Dr. Ayiti Jean-Pierre is determined to travel back to the homeland that is her namesake, Ayiti–or “Haiti,” as it is known in English. When she was seven-years-old, Ayiti and her family were forced to flee the beautiful island to escape the political turmoil and poverty that was beginning to bring misery to the Haitian people.

She moves back to Haiti to provide volunteer medical services with a Christian Medical Missionary Group. Ayiti meets an English missionary, Pastor Jude Patterson.  Pastor Jude falls in love with her. Immediately, he pursues her, but Ayiti cannot get over the fact that he is white, seven years younger, and of a completely different cultural background.

Battling issues regarding race, spiritual beliefs, and age differences, the relationship between Ayiti and Jude is tested to the limits. Will Ayiti put aside her preconceptions and bitterness to give Jude a chance? Will she come to learn the truth about her spiritual beliefs and accept Jesus? Will Jude win Ayiti’s heart?

Rise of the Skin-Hungry–The Parker J. Cole Show

parker-j-cole-banner

Hugs make the world go around. I’ll be the first to admit that. When a master storyteller recently shared a fascinating article about people who are “skin-hungry”. That means, those who lack the personal, intimate touch of another human being. It is not a sexual thing as much as an interpersonal connection. The article discussed how some criminals were affected psychologically by the lack of human touch when placed in solitary confinement.

We would go further and look back to Genesis 2:18 “And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.”

However, as this article postulates, people are becoming less and less interconnected. Human touch, connectivity is an essential part of being human. We need each other.  As the article states in it’s introduction: “As we live in an increasingly technology-focussed, socially disconnected world, we’re touching each other much less than before. But what does an absence of touch do to a person?”

Is it solely due to our dependence on technology that has caused this trend? Is it more? Join me for our continuing series with RD Palmer and I. You can call in at 929-477-1965 and press 1 to be live on air. Or, click on the link here: http://tobtr.com/s/11419743

Special Edition of the Write Stuff–Beatitudes and Woes Speculative Fiction Anthology

 

bawOne day, about several months ago, in a Facebook group not so far away, an author posted this:

… I think it would be cool if someone organized a speculative anthology where each story is based on one of the 9 Beatitudes in Matthew or one of the 4 woes of Luke. 13 authors, each assigned/choosing one of those verses, expressing it in fantastical story form…

That author, CW Briar, had created a firestorm.

Immediately, interest piqued. Christian authors and readers jumped on the bandwagon on this wonderful idea. Of course! Why hadn’t many of us thought of it before? General online excitement ensured as authors clamored for a chance to be one of the ones selected for this project. After all, most of us could recite them forwards and backwards.

But had we ever had a chance to explore them in a deeper context? What better way to do that than through the universal language of story?

Write Stuff Author Spotlight– King of Malorn by Annie Douglass Lima — **FREE EBOOK! LIMITED TIME**


Thanks for stopping by! Take a look at this brand-new fantasy adventure story with a hint of romance by author Annie Douglass Lima. 
You can download a copy of the ebook for free between July 9th and 11th!

Book Description:

    Life as
the king’s younger sister should be exciting.

   Not for
Princess Kalendria. She’s sick of the dissent and of constantly having her
family undermined by those who think they could rule Malorn better than King
Korram.
   Hoping to
lighten the mood in the palace, Kalendria plans a ball to celebrate her
seventeenth birthday. It doesn’t hurt that their handsome Alasian ally King
Jaymin has promised to attend, and she’s been waiting for him to notice her for
as long as she can remember.
   But
unfriendly forces have their own party plans. When Kalendria, Korram, and
Jaymin barely survive an assassination attempt, their only recourse is to flee
into the wilderness. Tracked by unknown assassins, they must figure out whom
they can trust and who is behind the plot. Can Kalendria help her brother
reclaim his throne – oh, and catch Jaymin’s attention while she’s at it –
before they are all killed and war destroys both kingdoms?

Series Information:



King of Malorn is book 5 in the Annals
of Alasia
. But don’t worry if you haven’t read the others; it will still make sense on its own. 



Each of the first four books can stand on its own as well. They each deal with events surrounding the same major political incident: the invasion
of the kingdom of Alasia by the neighboring kingdom of Malorn. 



Prince of Alasia begins on the night of the Invasion and
describes what happens to twelve-year-old Prince Jaymin after he is forced to
flee for his life. 

In
the Enemy’s Service

features a girl as the protagonist and tells the story of those who were not
able to escape from the Alasian palace when the enemy invaded. 

Prince of Malorn begins several months earlier and
focuses on the Malornian perspective of the events leading up to the
Invasion. 

The Nameless Soldier shows how a young Alasian soldier lives through the Invasion but then has to survive and make a name for himself in enemy-occupied Alasia. 



In each of the books, main
characters from the others make brief appearances and interact with each other
at the point where the timeframes and settings overlap. 



I also have a short
ebook of “interviews” that I conducted with the characters in the other three
books. Annals of Alasia: The Collected
Interviews
is not available on Amazon, but I send a free copy to anyone who
signs
up for my mailing list

(to receive updates when I release new books or occasionally offer them for free).



Author Biography:

Annie Douglass Lima considers herself
fortunate to have traveled in twenty different countries and lived in four of
them. A fifth-grade teacher in her “other” life, she loves reading to her
students and sparking their imaginations. Her books include science fiction,
fantasy, YA action and adventure novels, a puppet script, anthologies of her
students’ poetry, and Bible verse coloring and activity books. When she isn’t
teaching or writing, Annie can often be found sipping spiced chai or
pomegranate green tea in exotic locations, some of which exist in this world.

ANNE OF GREEN GABLES meets THE DA VINCI CODE

Daniela Rose, a preteen modern-day Indiana Jones, must come to terms with her destiny, avoid getting committed to the psychiatric ward, endure nightmares about a mysterious boy, deal with the mean girls at school, and save the world by hunting through the past to uncover clues hidden before the dawn of time.

Easy, right?

After her thirteenth birthday, Daniela must juggle school, caring for a sick father and solving an ancient puzzle that will protect her friends—and enemies—from a dark, biblical-sized force that seeks to eradicate humans from Earth.

Will Daniela give up and stop fighting for the kindred spirit her heart is destined for—leaving him unprotected and doomed to certain death—or will she rise to the challenge and meet her destiny head-on.

If you knew your ending, how would you have lived your beginning?
