Immigration, The Caravan And The Midterm Aftermath - Nothing New Under The Sun Says Joseph Ganci, Author Of Epic Biblical Novel Featuring Old Testament Revelations, 'Gideon: The Sound And The Glory'

In 'Gideon, The Sound, and the Glory,' Ganci combines Old Testament revelations with modern day revelations, action, and adventure to provide audiences with a unique, emotionally charged experience.

Immigration has dominated our headlines for many months now. While we like to think this is a modern-day issue, immigration - the journey to the promised land and a better life - have been with us for many centuries. These human sagas, replete with all the political drama that surrounds such issues, have been playing out since Biblical times.

While immigration and the accompanying political melodramatic plotlines may not first come to mind when considering stories from the Old Testament, author Joseph Ganci has managed to turn the little-known account of Gideon into a Bible-based novel that reads like a modern-day major motion picture based on current events. He shows us that Biblical stories can be more than just dusty history - they can be keenly entertaining. He brings the Bible to life and rekindles the fires of ancient passions. He offers practical application of revelatory insights of faith, visions, and spiritual determination for modern-day living. He does it all in ways that will entertain, motivate and enlighten. Consider the following:

"The people of Israel were now on the outskirts of Canaan, just beyond the River Jordan in the plains of Moab. They were within sight of the Promised Land, approaching the border of the land God promised to Abraham and his descendants. To assert their spiritual legacy would not be an easy undertaking. They would have to proceed by faith and rely solely on the strong hand and outstretched arm of God. The land of milk and honey was peopled by mixed and hostile populations who were violently opposed to yielding a cubit of ancestral lands—they would not go without a struggle. Canaan controlled the fertile valleys and the coastline with its unfriendly strongholds of walled cities. The high valleys were the domain of the Amorites. The Hivites, (Neo) Hittites, Jebusites, and Perizzites peopled the villages, towns, and hamlets of the central lowlands. This was Israel’s time of conquest and settlement, often by force of arms. Occasionally, an attempt was made to infiltrate peaceably.

"The Midianite kings were the sworn enemies of Israel and had been ever since their first encounter at the Battle of Mount Tabor. They witnessed firsthand the ever-growing might of the wandering vagabonds who had escaped Egyptian rule. Israel was, after all, an uninvited and unwelcome visitor who, by force or by stealth, insisted on making a place for themselves. Now they had become an ever-increasing problem on the ancestral lands of the Midianites, Amalekites, Canaanites, and all the children of the East. The land of their birthright from the beginning of time was being stolen by the fertile increase and unstoppable multiplication from the slave children called 'Israel.'”

Ganci takes a ground-breaking and revelatory path in his quest to bring the awe-inspiring story of Gideon to life and ultimately to film. He believes that connecting facts are far more enchanting than loosely fitting fantasies. He works within a framework of an engaging and dramatized fiction that, while exceedingly rich in detail, remains faithful to uphold spiritual principles. He bases his work on three primary pillars:

* The rock-solid cornerstone is historical biblical geography.

* The creative arch is revelatory in its timing and issues.

* The research is concrete, firmly rooted in customs, languages, and traditions.

Gideon coverGanci fills in the blanks with rock-solid research and prophetic revelations. It is a style that has allowed him to create breakthrough approaches that are exciting and breathtaking while remaining within the limits of believable biblical teachings.

Mysteries long hidden in ancient shadows now leap to life blazing unto the pages of revelation. Details that link passages, peoples, and places are the most exciting part of the storytelling process. Details give possibilities a firm foundation as bones give form and strength to living flesh. Details long since lost or misunderstood, now ring true, giving texture, and breath, to long-forgotten gems of perception resurrected from ruins, dust, and ashes.

Readers of 'Gideon The Sound and the Glory' will learn about the Jewish Tabernacle, the Ark of the Covenant, the mysterious Golden Ephod, how, and why, David found himself at his battle with Goliath, and much, much more. This work illuminates the dark corners of scripture while engaging readers in a gripping narrative.

Joseph Ganci was recently chosen as one of '50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading' in the 2017 Book Awards. 'Gideon: The Sound and the Glory' has received rave reviews from readers and reviewers alike. A recent reviewer stated, "Joseph Gauci’s prose is arresting, peppered with fantastic imagery and succinct descriptions of plot, characters, and setting. The themes are masterfully created, and they are woven into the story in a way that allows the reader to enjoy both the inspiration the story offers and the accompanying action. The book explores powerful spiritual and political themes, capturing the conflicts and the dynamics of life within the community of God's chosen people. Gideon: The Sound and the Glory will appeal to fans of political thrillers, adventure, and conflict-driven stories laced with intense action." Other reviewers have used phrases such as "riveting," "amazing" "deftly crafted" and "highly recommended."

Ganci has also announced he will make his book available as a fundraising tool for like-minded associations and charities. Donors can receive an eBook version of 'Gideon' in exchange for a donation to a worthy cause. For more details, contact Joseph via email.

Award Winning Author Jody Sharpe Announces New Angel Story, New Book About Bullying, 'Town Of Angels'

Sharpe's books are riveting inspirational thrillers written in honor of her daughter Kate and her husband Steve.

Award Winning author Jody Sharpe has announced a new angel story for 'Tuesdays With The Angels'. She has also announced the upcoming release of her new book about bullying and angels entitled 'Town Of Angels'.

Bullying has moved to the forefront of our collective consciousness. Nearly everyone has an opinion about how to craft a workable solution to the problem. A very unique take on dealing with bullying is the subject of Sharpe's upcoming book, 'Town Of Angels', the third book in the Mystic Bay series by award winning author Jody Sharpe.

It is angel vs. bully in the town of Mystic Bay, California, where a well kept secret lies. Angels live as humans there. After angels appeared to three children all was blissful in the town full of psychics, and ordinary folk. But as a bully, Klaus Waxman, comes to town, Angel Ken Leighton, a storeowner, must carefully guide his flock of humans not to give to in to the bully’s efforts. As Klaus opens a store mocking the resident angels sightings, Angel Ken guides psychic Justine Greer and her family to thwart his efforts. And with the help of the indomitable oldest psychic in town, Madam Norma, the bully meets his match with soft voices and intuitive minds…

" Standing tall with an armor of kindness always unravels the fearful bully," Sharpe stated.

The new book is slated for release in 2019.

Sharpe presents stories and interviews about angels in her 'Tuesdays With The Angels' blog series. She presents quotes about angels drawn from several of her books and fascinating angel stories from herself and others who submit stories for publication. She recently presented a new story about a man who met a male angel sitting on the bed of his wife, who was soon to pass away. The full story is available at her site.

Jody is now accepting submissions of angel stories for possible inclusion on her 'Tuesdays With The Angels' blog. She hopes to create a collection of angel stories that involve sightings of angels, interaction with angels, miraculous angel encounters and other types of accounts or stories. All submissions will be considered, but inclusion is not guaranteed. Stories may be submitted at http://bit.ly/2FV8amd.

Jody Sharpe knows angels exist. Her first book, ‘The Angel's Daughter’, was written in memory of her daughter Kate. Her second book, 'To Catch An Angel', was written in memory of her husband Steve.

Over a decade ago, when her daughter died tragically Sharpe faced down the most difficult challenge of her life. She was determined not to just merely survive, but to live; to honor the life of her beloved daughter, her twins, her husband and the rest of the rich life she had created before the tragedy. Blessed with an inherently positive outlook these trying times were strengthened by influences from the late Norman Vincent Peale to the children's book character, Wilbur the pig. For Sharpe, ministers of spirit and guidance took the form of angels. Sharpe's openness to change led her to write her first novel, 'The Angel's Daughter'. The story that takes place in the fictitious town of Mystic Bay, California and encompasses all Sharpe's attitudes about goodness, healing and moving on.

Jody is also the author of 'To Catch An Angel', written in memory of her late husband Steve. In 'To Catch An Angel', miracles happen in Mystic Bay, California, the town with the psychic and angel vibe. Angels are calling. Psychic Maggie Malone returns home to find she's swept up in the miracle of it all. She can't imagine why her mother left or who her father might be. But these questions pale in comparison to the wonder of the angels. Maggie meets writer, Noah Greenstreet. They realize they've met before, but where? Maggie and Noah embark on a journey to find our world is all awash with angels.

Jody was chosen as a winner in the annual '50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading' Book Awards. She was chosen from a field of hundreds of authors through a public voting process.

Sharpe's books have received a large number of rave reviews. A recent Amazon review stated, "This book would make a beautiful Christmas Hallmark movie. You will be left believing in Angels here on earth." Another said, "This a wonderful story that reminds us of the kindness and gentleness that exists in this world." Another stated, "Amazing. Most of all it is a feel good book and a must read.”

Jody Sharpe is available for media interviews and can be reached using the information below, or by email at sharpejody76@gmail.com. Angel stories can be submitted at http://bit.ly/2FV8amd. All of her books are available at online book retailers. New quotes will be added every Tuesday to the 'Tuesdays With The Angels' section of her blog, which can be found at her website at http://www.JodySharpe.com.

Profile:

Jody Sharpe had a rewarding career as a Special Education teacher. Writing about angels became healing after losing her daughter and then her husband. The valuable lessons she learned about moving forward and loving life in the now have set her on a mission to tell the stories with love, humor and spiritual awakening. The fictitious town of Mystic Bay has given her an avenue to put characters and themes together hopefully enlightening the reader towards contemplation of the precious life and memories we are given.

Body Shaming, Social Media, Bullying And The Drive To Be Best - How Selfies Are Transformed Into Therapy For Young People

Dr. Holstein, a psychologist/filmmaker and originator of a unique Selfie Film concept, writes award-winning books, plays and produces short films that offer solutions to problems that impact today's teens and tweens

Selfies and social media have become firmly embedded into the very core of the lives of young people. This revolutionary form of digital communication has become so popular that some established filmmakers are creating films shot entirely on cell phones. While many of us may see this as merely a modern style of communication or a cutting edge form of entertainment, Positive Psychologist Barbara Becker Holstein uses the concept in a way that has never before been done and possibly cannot be duplicated.

Selfies as therapy.

Traditional media is paying attention to these trends, as evidenced by recent articles in the New York Times, such as 'This is 18' and 'Writing in a Journal Can Help'. Holstein takes things to a whole new level however by utilizing this form of communication to present critical information and profound concepts that can transform the lives of young people.

"As a psychologist, I know the purging or ranting of thoughts and feelings, whether speaking to a friend, talking to a therapist, talking to yourself in the car, writing a letter to a deceased relative or keeping a diary, are usually beneficial," Dr. Holstein stated. "It helps us to get rid of excess emotions and worries that interrupt living."

"The question is: how do we do this in ways that fit our current society? Certainly shooting others because of feelings of rage is not a solution. On the other end of the spectrum, keeping a journal can help. But let's not forget what sits in most of our pockets in today's world - the smart phone. What can we do with it? Play games, read the news, chat, watch films, buy a new pair of shoes or a refrigerator. And we can make a Selfie. Believe it or not, there is a lot of power in that."

"What is 'The Selfie Project'? It is encouraging kids, tweens and teens to express themselves with Selfies, whether to vent and share feeling and concerns about their lives, our culture, etc,. or to make art in the form of filmmaking. I see Selfies as a form of therapy as well as a form of art with real merit."

"In my project kids are encouraged to talk via a Selfie about a topic on their minds. They come together with me and other experts on my Podcast show, 'The Enchanted Self presents the Selfie Project'. We discuss, share, come up with ideas, etc. Thus Selfies become one more means of creating a therapeutic environment."

"I also make Selfie films that star kids, tweens and teens. A Selfie film has at least one actor filming her own scenes, which is then merged with other scenes done with a standard crew or smart phones. The intensity of a teen filming herself is amazing. This type of drama can be utilized for pure art or as a means of helping parents, teachers and the rest of the world understand what kids are going through."

"As for filmmaking itself, Selfies and smart phones together are changing the industry. Smart phones can allow anyone to make a successful film. My latest Podcast show, ‘ESP Presents Creating Great Films with Smart Phones, included Robert Fitzhugh, founder of the Dublin Smart Phone Film Festival, via Skype; Hiram Ortiz, teacher at Pineland Schools, Co-Director of Hang On To Your Shorts Film Festival in Asbury Park; aAntonio DeLeon, high school student from Massachusetts who made a Selfie about School Drama and also joined us via Skype. The discussion covered #Selfiesasdrama, #Selfiesasfilm, #Smartphonesasfilm, #Selfiesastherapy and #SelfieFilmmakers."

"All of the above are important as we as a society constantly need to explore how we can use technology for positive purposes. Finding ways to use what we all carry in our pockets to teach, encourage, express our needs, thoughts and feelings, have fun, create film as an art from and as an educational tool, and to improve mental health, all of the above is what is on my mind as a psychologist/filmmaker! I invite everyone to join me on this creative, exciting adventure."

Dr. Holstein is currently developing "The Selfie Project" to help kids share their feelings and thoughts in a meaningful way via Selfies that can reach millions. "The Selfie Project" provides a way for young people to go public on a number of subjects. Bullying is real, school violence is real, drama because of social media is real for kids. 'The Selfie Project' is giving voice to those subjects. A pilot TV show is in the development phase. Teens will have a chance to discuss via their Selfies and in discussion with Dr. Holstein, various topics that affect their lives, from friend drama to fear of assault weapons. As of this moment, teens can share a link to their Selfies and Dr. Holstein will consider them for inclusion on her website, SelfieFilmmakers.com.

Holstein's short films have won numerous awards and accolades.
