New Book "Not Really Coincidence: Tracing Your Purposeful Life" Being Published

Posted on September 19, 2013 at 8:44 AM Comments comments (244)
Hi All,
 
I'm pleased to report that my new book "Not Really Coincidence: Tracing Your Purposeful Life" is finished and is working its way through CreateSpace.  It will be available on Amazon in print and a Kindle Edition if about one month.
 
Purposeful lives are blueprints we have made before we come into this world.  Destiny Points are free will choices we make after entry that either facilitate the blueprint we have desiged or hinder them.  If we make choices that facilitate our blueprint we are given help from above.  If we make choices that hinder our blueprint we are often blocked.  If people do not follow the Purposeful life they have planned they often experience a sense of restlessness and discontent that meaning and purpose are lacking.  When one is leading the life they have chosen there is a sense of passion and fulfillment.
 
In "Not Really Coincidence" I have located the Destiny Points in my own life, my late partner's life, and five people who without doubt have led very purposeful lives including Barack Obama, Margaret Thatcher, British philosopher Bertrand Russell, Walt Disney and the artist Emily Carr.  I have also given directions to finding your own Purposeful Life.
 
Now that "Not Really Coincidence is finished I am working on a book that will likely be called "The Great Canadian Betrayal."  This book is about Canadian Treaties 6, 7, and 8 in which First Nation's people surrendered title to most of Canada from Ontario to the Rocky Mountains in return for items such as freedom to choose reserve land, farming implements, education for their children and aid during famine and epidemics.  The First Nations people honored their commitments but the Canadian Government of Sir John A. MacDonald and later governments did not.
 
The history is depressing as is the knowledge that most Canadians are not aware of the history and have lingering negative sterotypes in their minds of First Nations People from Cowboy and Indian movies from Hollywood.  Actually the Cree and Blackfoot Chiefs that negotiated the above treaties after the  were very dignified and negotited very hard to save their people from starvation once the buffalo herds had been exterminated and the American gold miners were running rampant amongst them. 
 
Personally I am multi-tasking amongst great distruption as a drain backed up from the house heat pump and flooded all the carpets.  I now have to pack up all my material goods, move them and all the furniture while a new floor is put in.  I can't wait to return to Hawaii in July for the Hawaii Association of Recording Artists Haku Awards where my audiobook has been nominated for the Spoken Word Category.  I'll keep you posted.

AUDIOBOOK NOMINATED FOR HAWAIIAN EQUIVALENT OF A GRAMMY

Posted on August 30, 2013 at 5:55 PM Comments comments (7)
I've just been down on Maui where my audiobook "Kula Keiki Ali'i" (Chief's Children's School) has just been completed.  I was very fortunate to have the audiobook about the damage done to the last five monarchs of Hawaii as children in the Chief's Children's School blessed by Kahu Hanalei Colleado.  I also had a radio interview.  The pictures tell the story.
 
One Big Happy Family is distributing the audiobook as a MP3 and it will very soon be available from Audible on Amazon.com.
 
The fantastic news is that this audiobook has been nominated for the Hawaiian equivalent of a Grammy, the 2014 HAKU from the Hawaii Association of Recording Artists.  
 
Here are some pictures from my recent trip.
 
 

At Eagle' Edge: NOW ON KINDLE AS WELL AS PRINT

Posted on June 25, 2013 at 12:22 PM Comments comments (23)
Hi all.
 
Exciting news.  My latest Environmental, Adventure Novel, "At Eagle's Edge:  Our Choices, Our Future and Our Environment is now available on Amazon's Kindle as well as in print.  For five days it can be downloaded free (June 26th. 2013 to June 30th., 2013 as well as all my other books.  Just use Amazon's free Kindle app for download on Kindles, Iphones, PC's, tablets and the new Blackberry 10.  "At Eagle's Edge" contains important information as well as being a good read.  Embedded is information about what keeps the Exxon Valdez super tankers full of crude oil from Alaska safe now during their voyage down the Valdez Channel and pros and cons about oil and Dilbit (Tar Sands Oil diluted with toxic chemicals).
 
This book is a must read for both people living in B.C. and people concerned about the Great Bear Rainforest and the Spirit bear.  The bear and the entire wildlife chain in the pristine Central B.C. coastline including whales, salmon,  eagles, shorebirds and sea lions. etc. are threatened by the proposed Northern Gateway Pipeline and super tankers moving down the Douglas Channel through a maze of islands during the winter hurricane season.
 
I've redone my websites and have classified my books into four categories:  Environment novels, Humor Novels, Hawaii Historical novels, self-help guides and my first Metaphysical book "No Need To Say Goodbye.  I'm working on my second Metaphysical book called "Not Really Coincidence" about Purposeful Lives (lives we planned before we came into this world) and it should be ready in the near future (two months).
 
In other news one of my Hawaii Literary Histories - "Kula Keiki Ali'i (Chief's Children's School) is being turned into an audiobook in Maui.  This book tells of the Indoctrination rather than the Education of the young children who would become monarchs of Hawaii by a crazy Hell and Brimstone missionary in a residential school who who did tremendous damage by whipping them with rawhide whips, telling the children Hawaiians were pagan, that the sins of adultery were killing off Hawaiians, and that they would never become monarchs unless they converted to Christianity.  This audobook will be available through Amazon's ACx platform in the near future.
