Exodus Lost by M C Compton

Exodus Lost
M. C. Compton

Aztec and Mayan chronicles told of voyagers who arrived from across the Atlantic Ocean centuries before Columbus. Remembered as founding fathers, they hailed from a remote land called Tlillan Tlapallan, “Black Land Red Land.” Now, for the first time, Exodus Lost presents compelling evidence that this lost homeland was Kemet Deshret, “Black Land Red Land,” the ancient Egyptian name for Egypt. From this follow a series of groundbreaking discoveries into the origins of Mexican civilization, the roots of Western civilization, the creation of the alphabet, the history of the pyramids, and even new archaeological evidence for several major Bible stories. Enter a world of exploration and discovery, mystery and revelation. Whether your passion is archaeology or religion, history or simply a great adventure, Exodus Lost delivers. Beautifully illustrated with 126 photos, maps, and engravings.

“Exodus Lost is a first-rate intellectual adventure. Its fresh perspective and new revelations make for a thoughtful and captivating journey into the roots of Mesoamerican and Western civilizations. I highly recommend this thought-provoking new book.”
—Dr. Jonathan Fanton, President of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences

“I thoroughly enjoyed Exodus Lost. It is definitely a page-turner; it reads like a scholarly mystery novel bringing various clues together to solve an ancient mystery. You will not want to put it down once you start. What’s more, the author’s theories correlate with some of the latest archaeological evidence coming to light. Exodus Lost brings sound research and archaeology together to give readers a different and intriguing perspective on ancient history!”
—Dr. David Kaufman, linguistic anthropologist

“My husband took this manuscript on our yearly vacation to Padre Island. All I can tell you is that neither of us could put the manuscript down until it was finished. Only later did the irony of the situation appear: the scholarly documentation of the Pre-Columbian civilization of Mesoamerica articulated in such an engaging spell-binding manner that neither of us could stop reading it. Guaranteed to be a real page-turner.”
—Dr. Vienna Schwartz

The Sorceress’s Apprentice

The Sorceress’s Apprentice
JL Lahey

Badger, an eight-year-old orphan, has spent his entire life hiding in books, reading of the heroic deeds performed by valiant knights and courageous adventurers.

While attempting to save the lives of his fellow orphans he manifests a magic like power.  He soon learns that using this power comes with a great risk to his own life.

A beautiful sorceress, clad all in black, arrives with an offer to adopt him and teach him how to properly wield his powers.

Once they leave, he learns that the sorceress is really the leader of a group of adventurers, and they’re not the type of heroes that he has ever read about in books.  They’re the kind that steal, get drunk, rob graves, loot tombs, and shoot people in the back.  They basically only do what they need to in order to have a really good time.

Badger is wondering what type of tale has he gotten into, because he has never read a story quite like this one!

For Beau: The Sarah Ashdown Story

For Beau: The Sarah Ashdown Story
Simon Gandossi

PERTH, Australia – Simon Gandossi has always been fascinated by history. Coupled with his equal passion for writing, he narrates a tale of resilience, of survival and of determination as he shares the story of Sarah Ashdown. “For Beau” (published by Xlibris AU) follows the life of the heroine as she displays courage like no other.

Sarah Ashdown’s insurmountable guilt and remorse over the death of a young girl sets in motion one of the most unbelievable stories of World War II. An ordinary housewife who defied the odds to become one of the most wanted women in occupied Europe, her story of determination and courage will shock and inspire those who read it.

Gandossi, through Sarah’s story, takes readers back to the past and allows them to experience the same feelings and emotions as the main character (and of the people who lived during those times). The author’s seamless storytelling allows readers to empathize with Sarah and better understand her mantra of “never giving up on something one really want to do despite the risks.” Not only touching on the emotional side, this book also showcases different aspects of life in Britain, occupied France and in Germany.

“I want everyone to take a step back in time when they read my books,” Gandossi candidly shares. “Every book should take the reader on a journey. With my dedication to preserving history I know that each and every person will begin that journey from the very first word.”

Gandossi’s book is available for purchase at Xlibris, Amazon and Barnes & Noble

Gratitude: B

Every other week this year, I will explore gratitude through one letter of the alphabet.  This journey will most likely be centered around my weight loss journey, but some weeks, my gratitude will expand into other areas of my life.  Join me, and let me know what you’re grateful for each week!

B is for Best Friend

Having a best friend is a real gift, and I know not everyone gets to have one.  I’m lucky enough to have a best friend, and to have one that supports me nearly all the time.  He’s someone who gets the struggle, and is quick to point out tips for getting past hurdles, as well as motivation to keep going when I’m doing well.  Without someone who knows me inside and out pushing me along, I don’t think I would have been able to do a great deal of the things I set out to do.  I’m forever grateful to the universe for smushing us together.
