Teri Dluznieski (horsewisevt) | 41 comments Hiya

inspirational...? is that spiritual-religious kind of inspirational, or a more general kind of inspired- the way great books or art or music inspire us? :)

I have a handful of non-fiction natural health books- all that combine natural health to various issues, from learning, to depression-stress, to alzheimers... combined with healing techniques.

I also have the first book in a series that is paranormal-supernatural-fantasy, about a young woman who is an inca shaman, and a full-time college student.. Cafe' of the Hungry Ghosts...

I bring background of having done this stuff for many years, info on social issues, ethical issues, and the very real world todays kids are living in..:)

Jayne Harris | 2 comments Hi Diamante!

Not sure whether you have specific genres in mind, but I am a Paranormal Investigator and Writer and my first book is due out this halloween.

What Dwells Within - A Study of Spirit Attachment by Jayne Harris

Here is a description, if you think you may be interested just let me know as we are currently taking pre-orders and pre release reviews.

Spirits don't just haunt buildings
From beloved dolls to once treasured jewellery, evidence of the afterlife can be found in the most unexpected of places.

Jayne Harris is one of the UK's best known female Paranormal Investigators and a world leader in the study of Spirit Attachment (haunted objects). With over 17 years experience in this very misunderstood field of research, in this book Jayne lets readers into her world by sharing her most memorable, and sometimes terrifying cases and gives advice to anyone wishing to take a journey into the paranormal.

Co-written by award winning Author Dan Weatherer who gives a fascinating insight into historic cases, this book is a MUST have for any paranormal enthusiast and an invaluable tool for paranormal investigators.

Are you ready for the truth?

Very cool thing you're doing.
My book, Insane-O-Tron, has Humor, Sci-Fi and a little bit of Fantasy mixed in. If you're looking for something crazy and really different perhaps you'd consider it.

Debra Langley (debbielangley) | 12 comments Hi Diamante,

Please consider promoting my new book called Ideas Like Shoes on your blog.

I have a media kit available that I can forward to you if you are interested.

Ideas Like Shoes Take You Places by Debra Langley Ideas Like Shoes Take You Places

A brief blurb:

“Step outside the daily nuts and bolts of life, and examine your own amazing potential for creative thinking.” - DOUGLAS KRUGER, BUSINESS CONSULTANT, AUTHOR, AND PROFESSIONAL SPEAKER

Most of us go through life doubting our own talents and abilities. We look towards other people that have succeeded and we try to copy their ideas and do what they are doing. We are not original or unique and keep our best talents and most original ideas trapped inside. We fear what other people may think and so we continue to produce work that is an inferior copy of someone else’s.

Your best work is your work; it is original and is uniquely yours. It comes from inside you and does not resemble the work of someone else at all. Nowhere is this more important than in the field of creativity where we must make hundreds of connections in the brain, become smarter, think faster and be more astute as we find the lucrative A-Ha moments in daily life.

In Ideas Like Shoes Take You Places, Debra Langley explores the field of innovation and creative thinking and reinforces the idea that anyone can be creative. Ideas are not limited to a few highly gifted individuals as we may have previously thought. It pinpoints a few basic tools that if implemented and practised daily will help you lay a solid creativity foundation and teaches you how to change your conventional way of thinking.

With practical examples, this book shows you just how easy it is to come up with big ideas. Debra shares simple, effective and time tested actions that we can all implement daily. After all it’s the ideamen that get ahead in life! Are you ready to join the ranks with some of the world’s leading innovators?
