Superbbookreviews.com also proofreads books at nominal fees to assure the author the book is ready to be submitted to the publisher. Superbbookreviews.com an author’s best friend.

 

Confronting Infinity

Confronting Infinity

 

 

 

Borders between life and death have moved from science fiction to exploratory science. Paranormal studies were once only a fringe study. Now the fringe is rapidly becoming main stream. Since man’s inception into this universe he has suspected there is more to being human than a physical self. The word soul has been named in a thousand different ways all with similar meanings: a detached ethereal component of the human body which lives on after physical death. A more modernistic approach to the definition is an incorporeal entity that exists at the quantum level which is indestructible and lives on after all physical activity ceases. Pick your choice both definitions imply a transition into another mode of reality. With great privilege and humility I was allowed to be part of the dying process of hundreds who I knew well in life. These patients and a few friends were aware their time was short in this living environment. One specifically stands out. A former teacher nearing the age of 95 was under my care in a nursing home. Her mind was as sharp as the proverbial tack. The subject of death often crossed her mind. She believed ( I am paraphrasing) a door opened somewhere to let the departed through.  I never saw any fear in her. All I can state from my humble perch is every human will confront this transition, believers or not, that there is an awakening somewhere else. This is one man’s opinion without proselytizing his intrinsic beliefs.

The Delinquent Author

15 Apr

A huge problem for many editors, proofreaders and book reviews is the delinquent author. After a fee schedule is agreed to, with the payment expected at the completion of the work performed, the author decides to play financial charades with you. My Paypal account is corrupted in some manner or form. Another approach is they do not return your e-mails once you indicate the work is completed hoping you will further reduce your fees. Still another format is I will pay you if the book sells. These and many other scenarios may be hard to contemplate yet they happen more than one would think. The obvious resolution to this problem is to get your money up from instead of utilizing the honor system and obtaining it on the backend. I have utilized the honor system because most authors who have asked me to help them are honorable people. Yet I am rethinking my approach. It is no fun when a person stiffs you for nominal fees requested. My question to the audience is: Should you collect your fees up front or request payment at completion of the work?

SEXUAL HARASSMENT: MANY FLAVORS FEW TAKERS

Sexual Harassment: Many Flavors few takers

 

 

 

Observers of current culture have watched as many men have been pulled into the vortex of sexual harassment. Tiger Woods lost huge as his libido got the best of him. Woods was forced to attend counseling sessions because he liked women. This must be a big business because others of equal note are being entrapped by their own so-called promiscuous behavior. If you are Bill Clinton you get an award while others are tarred and feathered. Now Bill O’Reilly is under the microscope for his latent urges. Thirteen million dollars, as reported by the press, has been paid out to various women who stepped forward with complaints, perhaps more to come. My question is: what flavor of sexual harassment did he display? Did Bill eyeball the woman’s better parts? Did Bill ask the woman to dinner? Perhaps Bill gave her a peck on her face or maybe he attacked a woman outright. I doubt the latter and for the former probably a minor bit occurred. What did Bill have to say about these questionable occurrences in his talking points? It appears his points were not talking on this topic. Word is out he may be on an extended vacation and or permanent one. Sadly I will miss this arrogant man who bloviated each weekday on his news/commentary program which set the tone for Fox’s nightly line up. Perhaps Bill should have picked a flavor few liked therefore he could have finished his career with a clean slate. Good luck Bill. Whatever decision you make Fox will be better off either way.

WAR IS COMING

12 Apr

President Trump’s humanity was on the tip of each of the 59 Tomahawk missiles sent into Syria. Sadly Obama would have drawn another line in the sand and ignored that one as well. Hillary, had she become the Commander in Chief, would have been asleep somewhere, as she was during the Benghazi incident. More scary is the armada moving towards the waters near North Korea. This could set off a nuclear confrontation. Sounds far fetched, but it is not. Irrationality rules in North Korea. A powder keg ready to explode any moment. The United States should not light the fuse. Hopefully cooler heads will prevail.  As history tells its tales there will be war before peace.
