Book Title:  Peace in the Midst of the Storm by Kaleb Thompson
Category:  Adult Non-Fiction (18+), 86 pages
Genre:  Poetry
Publisher:  Wipf and Stock
Release date:   December, 2021
Tour dates: March 20 to April 7, 2023
Content RatingG because it provides positive, wholesome content through spiritual poetry that seeks to encourage and inspire others.
Book Description:

Anxiety and fear seek to prey on the damaged and create heavy burdens that scar the soul, being heartless and insensitive to the lost, unkempt, and broken-spirited in a troubled, unwholesome world. However, they do not reign for eternity, as faith, resilience, and empowerment remain planted from within to help overcome pressing obstacles, regardless of how difficult they may be. Peace in the Midst of the Storm primarily focuses on the beauty of positivity, selflessness, and honorable confidence that symbolizes the importance of light being present within darkness. This book also holds accountability in facing the realization that as life may prove frustrating at times, giving up is never an option! This shows that regardless of our mistakes, life does not promise us that we will remain positioned in negativity. What we were in our pasts will not seep into who we have grown to be as positive individuals. What we have now realized is that we often must prepare to speak victory over our storms and, as we continue to encourage ourselves to do that, we will overcome anything.

Benny Basilworth makes connections. A rare intellect, he sees things that others don't see and draws conclusions that others completely fail to grasp. He has the kind of mind that can make a person a national sensation on the television gameshow "The Connection Game"– and the kind of mind that can be the target of predators.

Despite his brilliance, Benny and his family find themselves destitute, living in a basement apartment with one tiny window that affords them only the view of the feet of passersby on the street above. It is from this vantagepoint that Benny once again starts making connections. Mad, inconceivable connections. Connections that can change lives . . . and turn the entire world upside down.

​Humorous, surprising, wise, and remarkably perceptive, The Connection Game is a novel unlike any other and one that you are unlikely to forget.

The History of Books

Books have been around for thousands of years. The earliest forms of writing were on clay tablets, which were used in Mesopotamia 6,000 years ago. These tablets could be broken into pieces and reassembled at a later date.
The invention of the printing press by Johannes Gutenberg in 1439 was a major step forward in bookmaking because it allowed more people to read books than ever before. Before this time, books had been handwritten by scribes who would copy out each page individually; now they could be printed on large sheets using movable type that could then be assembled into pages with glue or stitching (in contrast to today's paperbacks).
Books became more accessible thanks to advances like these--but they weren't always cheap! In fact, many early readers couldn't afford their own copies: instead they would borrow them from libraries where other people stored their personal collections as well as shared resources like encyclopedias and dictionaries for reference purposes only (no taking home!).

The Benefits of Reading

Reading is a powerful tool for personal growth and development. It can help you improve your literacy, expand your knowledge, develop empathy, and increase imagination.
Reading improves literacy skills by helping you learn new words and absorb information faster than if you were just listening or watching someone else read (or speak). Reading also helps build vocabulary so that when someone says "I'm going to the store" instead of thinking "What does 'store' mean?" you'll know that it means where people buy things like food or clothes or toys. And if someone says "I've been waiting all day for my friend to come over" instead of having no idea what they're talking about because this word doesn't exist in any other language besides English? Well then! You've got yourself another word down pat!
Reading expands knowledge by exposing us not only to things we already know but also introducing us to new ideas and perspectives--and sometimes even changing our minds about things we thought were true before reading them! For example: did you know that some people think climate change isn't real? Or maybe they think humans aren't causing global warming at all (even though there's tons of evidence proving otherwise)? If so then keep reading because these topics are covered extensively throughout history books written during different time periods as well as scientific journals published today which detail findings from research conducted over decades worth analyzing data collected during experiments conducted around world wide locations including Antarctica where scientists have been studying penguins since 1988 - yes indeedy folks those little guys have been around longer than most humans alive today...

The Impact of Books on Society

Books have the power to shape culture, promote democracy and inspire revolutions. They also advance technology by providing the framework for new inventions.
Books have been used as weapons against tyranny since ancient times; they were banned by monarchs who feared their subversive potential, censored by governments that wanted to control what people read and burned by religious zealots who considered them heretical.

The Types of Books

There are many different types of books, including fiction and non-fiction. Fiction is a story that's made up by the author--it could be anything from a murder mystery to a love story. Non-fiction is non-fiction, which means it's based on real events or people. Poetry is another type of literature that uses words in different ways than prose does; it can be very emotional and powerful when done well! Short stories are shorter than novels but still tell an entire story over the course of one book (or sometimes even less). Graphic novels combine images with text to tell stories visually as well as verbally; these can be great for younger readers who may not have mastered reading skills yet! Audiobooks are recordings of books read aloud by narrators with different voices for each character if necessary (or just one voice if there aren't too many characters).

The Benefits of Owning Books

The benefits of owning books are numerous. First, you can build a personal library that will serve as an ever-expanding reminder of your journey through life. Second, creating a sense of accomplishment is important to many people, and a book collection is one way to do that. Finally, having a tangible connection with the characters and stories in your books can help bring them to life in ways that reading on an e-reader or tablet just doesn't offer.

The Power of Book Clubs

A book club is a group of people who meet to discuss a particular book or books. It's a great way to explore diverse perspectives and gain new insights about the world around you.
Books are powerful because they can help us learn about different cultures and traditions, as well as get us thinking about things from new perspectives. A good book will make you feel like you're part of another world--and that's one reason why so many people love reading!

The Role of Books in Education

Books are a powerful tool for education. They encourage critical thinking skills, independent learning and engagement in the classroom.
In addition to helping students develop their reading skills, books can also be used as an aid for teaching history and science topics. For example, if you're teaching your students about dinosaurs or the solar system you could use books as a visual aid or even have them write their own book about these topics!

The Future of Books

We've seen the rise of e-books, which have taken over the market and made it possible to carry hundreds of books on a device that fits in your pocket. But what's next?

  • Interactive books: These are still just in their infancy, but they have great potential. Imagine being able to click on a word or phrase in your book and get more information about it--or even hear someone speak it!
  • Augmented reality: If you're not familiar with augmented reality (AR), think Pokémon Go--but imagine those monsters were actually real! You could walk around town seeing them everywhere (and maybe even catching them).

The Magic of Books

The magic of books is how they can transport you to new worlds, connect you with characters, and discover new ideas. When I read a book that's especially good, I feel like I'm part of the story--like it's happening right now. The best books make me forget where I am and who I am for a little while.
When we read books together as a family, we're able to share these experiences together. We get excited when something exciting happens in one of our favorite stories; we laugh at jokes that only adults would understand; we cry over sad parts (and sometimes even when there aren't any).

The author creates tension and suspense throughout by keeping the reader guessing; she keeps readers engaged with well fleshed out characters and a dash of humor. Sterling, the retired German Shepherd police dog turned card shark, is a new favorite. As the story flows, the truth unfolds, layer by layer, leading to a satisfying conclusion.

Nevertheless, Carr has pulled off another "hit" that kept me reading in one setting until the clues were so well together that the villain fell into our laps...or Chris's, LOL Carr has put a lot into the book beyond the mysteries this time...Characters enjoyed chocotinis, visited book stores...and even blundered into getting engaged (the ring had been purchased 4 months ago)...

Release date:  Mar 2023
Formats Available for Reviewprint-softback (USA), and ebook (MOBI FILE (FOR KINDLE), EPUB, PDF).
Tour dates: Mar 14 to Apr 3, 2023
Content Rating: ​PG-13 for some bad language

"Fade to Blue kicks off with shocking twists and attention-grabbing characters. The ongoing discussions between cat and mouse are tense, especially as the lines between terrorists and anti-terrorists working undercover become blurred. The stakes are high but also personal—Marcel’s monologues, while not likely realistic, are a lot of fun. Filled with vivid characters and a fast moving plot, Scheer has written a winning page-turner." -BookLife, Editor's Pick 

"Hank Scheer’s debut novel offers readers an engaging medical mystery, after which the plot becomes a swiftly paced thriller. Sarah is a capable and appealing protagonist, and a canny plot twist gives the narrative geopolitical heft and spurs interest in what might happen next." - Kirkus Reviews

"The secondary cast is vibrant and varied; their personalities are distinctive, and their conversations have a charming effect. Sarah’s combative exchanges with René, a French inspector whose penchant for sarcasm matches hers, add particular color. And the well-described settings further flesh out and ground the otherwise dizzying, swift-moving story. Working toward an open-ended but triumphant conclusion, Fade to Blue is an exciting thriller in which a scientist tries to stay alive after creating a brain-destroying drug that others want." - Foreword Clarion Reviews

"The strong characters, fast-paced action, and ethical dilemmas create thought-provoking reading suitable for book club discussion, contrasting nicely with other standout medical thriller genre reads." - Midwest Book Review

Book Description:

Will Dr. Brenalen's unauthorized experiment lead to a cure for Alzheimer's, or will it be used for bioterrorism?

Biotech researcher Sarah Brenalen is frustrated by her boss’s dismissal of her controversial theory, so she secretly injects lab mice with experimental Alzheimer’s drugs of her own design. Sarah is stunned when one of her experiments goes horribly wrong. But Marcel and his international cabal are intrigued. Sarah's brain-destroying T-3 formulation could be just what they need.

Fade to Blue is a high-tech, fast-paced, cat-and-mouse game played for keeps. What Marcel didn't count on is that two can play this game.

Meet the Author:

Hank Scheer's writing journey began during a work break when a coworker said, "Hey, let's write a short story." They were working for a steel mill in Pittsburg, California, so brainstorming ideas became a fun way to pass the time.

At one point the following week, after the manufacturing process caused a computer to crash, Hank had his idea: an evil scientist creates a drug that destroys a person's brain.

Now it was a simple matter of plotting the story and writing it. Fade to Blue is the result of three trips to Paris, France, and long weekends spent driving around the San Francisco Bay area.

It doesn't involve steelmaking, but the science is just as real and the potential for trouble exponentially more terrifying.

Hank is now retired and lives in Martinez, California. He enjoys writing and recording music, world travel, biking, downhill skiing, and supporting other working people fighting for a better world.
