For so long, you've been taught to act the part of your belief system rather than how to be the part. Religious games cause more hurt and frustration than almost anything else. But today, we're going to end the religious ideals that has led to more bondage, less freedom, less joy and less peace. It's time to find the strait path.
Award-winning, #1 Amazon bestselling author, Susan Wingate discusses books and writing with other authors and industry professionals.
On today's show, Susan welcomes Jeffrey Somers, author of CHUM, the story of love, liquor, and death. Rumor is it’s an unofficial sequel to Lifers and there might be some cross-over.
Jeff Somers was born in Jersey City, New Jersey and regrets nothing. He is the author of the Avery Cates series of novels published by Orbit Books and The Ustari Cycle books Trickster and Fabricator (Pocket Books). He sold his first novel at age 16 to a tiny publisher in California which quickly went out of business and has spent the last two decades assuring potential publishers that this was a coincidence. Jeff publishes a zine called The Inner Swine and has also published a few dozen short stories; his story “Ringing the Changes” was selected for Best American Mystery Stories 2006, edited by Scott Turow and his story “Sift, Almost Invisible, Through” appeared in the anthology Crimes by Moonlight, published by Berkley Hardcover and edited by Charlaine Harris. His guitar playing is a plague upon his household and his lovely wife The Duchess is convinced he would wither and die if left to his own devices.
The Themes of The Manhattan Puzzle By Laurence O’Bryan What has been hidden in Manhattan by the most powerful people on earth? What would you do to a Manhattan banker who treated ordinary people like slaves? What magic is buried under Manhattan that allows it to rise again from anything the world throws at it? These are the themes of The Manhattan Puzzle. The story sees Sean and Isabel (from The Istanbul Puzzle and The Jerusalem Puzzle) reunited in Manhattan at the headquarters of one of the world’s largest banks, BXH. There’s been some grisly murders, and now the plot takes a new twist. The contents of the book they found in Istanbul are revealed. My personal journey with this story grew out of my disgust at the financial crisis that has brought many so low. I am interested in the myths and the beliefs of those who value money above everything. But The Manhattan Puzzle is about other things too. For instance, what would you do if your partner didn’t come home one night? And what would you think if the police turned up at your door the next day looking for him? Relationships are under stress everywhere, because of the demands placed on us by our jobs, but few of us will face what Isabel has to face when Sean goes missing. There is violence from the start in The Manhattan Puzzle too, but the opening has a woman inflicting it on a man. I am tired of reading about men inflicting sexual violence on women. I think it’s time for the handcuffs to swop wrists. And they certainly do in The Manhattan Puzzle. But don’t get me wrong. I love Manhattan. It’s a city in a snow globe of dollar bills. So look in your bookstore and on your E-readers and order it too, if you want. http://www.lpobryan.com
This is what, Chris Everheart, author of The Delphi Deception has to say about himself:
I’m a recovering reluctant reader turned award-winning author of books for young readers (Moonbeam Award, 2009).
I started my first book when I was 16 years old. It was “The Outsiders-meets-The Warriors” — a kid my age was thrown into a Minneapolis street war over a drug deal gone bad. I didn’t know it then, but that first manuscript was an attempt to connect to a larger world where events and people had a higher purpose than just getting through daily life.
I wasn’t a great student as a kid. This “reluctant reader” was called “slow” and “lazy.” If reading was difficult, television was my escape into the stories and worlds of other people. Later, the discovery of high school art and humanities pulled me out of a dropout spiral and gave me a fascination for the world and new ways to express myself.

Religious shunning bars association with people who have been labeled as apostates, whistleblowers, dissidents or anyone the religion perceives as a threat or source of conflict. Rob Robertson’s guest, Janette, has experienced shunning and will discuss this practice and the damage that it can do. After twenty years of involvement in Scientology, she and her husband concluded that the organization was a sham. They left … and were ostracized by the entire Clearwater, Florida Scientology Community. They lost their jobs, friends and even contact with some of their family members. ”It was a very public witch hunt against us,” Janette says. Since then, Janette and her husband met many people from various religious backgrounds, all with similar stories of shunning and corruption. Janette created a website called Truth Rundown to expose the abuses and corruption going on in not only Scientology, but in several religious organizations and cults such as the Jehovah’s Witnesses and Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints (FLDS). Please visit GodDiscussion.net for more information and links. ~~~ World Cult Watch, a weekly program that airs every Sunday night, is intended to not only offer news and information about cults, but to provide a forum where cult survivors — and those wanting to leave — have a chance to talk and receive emotional support. Rob runs the “World Cult Watch” website.
