Book Reviews Now Offered By LM Book Review For Traditional And Self Publishers Authors

LM Book Review Service offers professional level, honest and trustworthy book reviews of both print books and ebooks.

LM Book Review has announced a new book review service for authors of most genres. They provide reviews for both traditionally published and self published authors.

Book reviews play an important role with diverse groups of people. These include readers, who may give weight to a book review when deciding whether to take a change on an unfamiliar author. They are also important to industry professionals such as publishers, agents, publicists, marketing professionals and journalists. While it has been said books can judged by their cover, it is much more likely that they are judged by the reviews the book has received.

Reviews from other authors, industry friends or family members usually mean very little to these decision makers. Real reviews are often hard to come by and, in today's "pay to play" environment, can often cost more than an independent author can afford. Most authors are very aware of the difficulty in getting readers to post reviews.

A professional level book review is a qualified opinion that, while subjective, offers insight into the quality and content of a particular work. A review means little if it's not unbiased and trustworthy.

LM Book Review has solved those problems. The company offers professional level, honest and trustworthy reviews with short turnaround times and exemplary service.

LM Book Review's quality reviews are produced by professionals who have been in the business for many years and are themselves writers. They understand and respect the hard work and long hours that go into writing a book.

The company offers three levels of service - a standard review and two expedited plans.

Authors and publishers can submit books for consideration at the LM Book Review site at http://www.lmbookreview.com. The company does not guarantee that books submitted will be accepted for review. Those submitting books will be notified by email if a book is accepted. LM Book Review makes every effort to respond as soon as possible within a reasonable time frame. Questions should be submitted via email at lindam@lmbookreview.com.

Author And Keynote Speaker Rocky Romanella Of 3SIXTY Management Services Announces Forbes Interview, New Theory Magazine Article

A highly sought Keynote Speaker and Business Leadership Trainer, Romanella is founder and principal of 3SIXTY Management Services, LLC. He has over 40 years of leadership at Fortune 100's and most recently served as Chief Executive Officer and Director for UniTek Global Services, after retiring from a 36-year career with UPS.

Author and keynote speaker Rocky Romanella, principal of 3SIXTY Management Services LLC, was featured in a Forbes interview with Alastair Dryburgh. In that interview he stressed that we must avoid the trap of turning strength into weakness.

In the interview, Romanella stated, "For me, one of the keys to growth is not allowing your strengths to become your weaknesses. It’s important to use these strengths as appropriate, but not rely on them to the point of complacency. Sometimes when you overplay that hand, what ends up happening is that you stop at the first right answer. You must challenge yourself and your people to not stop at the first right answer even though it may be a right answer and, in your strength, and comfort zone. You must push through that first right answer to get breakthrough thinking.

"One of the things that happens when we do that, which I think is the transformative piece, is that you start to see yourself as a solutions provider not an order taker. When you're a solutions provider you address your customers differently."

Rocky will also be a contributor for New Theory Magazine. New Theory Magazine is an online platform for forward thinkers. It provides readers with exclusive access into the minds of thought leaders covering inspirational content such as business, health, fitness, hot topics and much more.

As a contributor, Rocky's goal is to challenge readers to think of their businesses and their relationships with key constituents in new ways. This approach has helped him shape simple yet thought-provoking lessons into tangible results. He constantly challenges himself and others to not stop at the first right answer, to look past that first “right answer” in the management of day-to-day operations.

In Romanella's business leadership book, 'Tighten the Lug Nuts: The Principles of Balanced Leadership', he uses his Executive Business Leadership experiences to explore the ways a true leader can add value as a trusted advisor, mentor, and visionary who uses a process approach to lead the organization and its people to new levels of success.

In an engaging, personal, and witty style, Romanella details his Balanced Leadership approach, which details how to give your three major constituents equal priority in your decision-making process through actively listening to their needs and building strong relationships. By following the steps Romanella lays out, readers can truly learn the importance of Balanced Leadership.

In honor of a great leader and coach who cultivated breakthrough performances from his teams, for every purchase of 'Tighten the Lug Nuts', 3SIXTY will donate $1 to Victory Over Cancer, a charitable organization co-founded by former North Carolina State Basketball Coach Jim Valvano. This important organization is dedicated to saving lives by helping to find a cure for cancer. A donation will also be made for each new Training Engagement or Motivational Keynote and in appreciation for those who sign up to receive 3SIXTY’s newsletter. The book, which has numerous five-star Amazon ratings, is an ideal Father's Day gift.

As part of its training offering, the 3SIXTY team can incorporate 'Tighten the Lug Nuts' as a foundation for a variety of group training sessions to help teams of any size become more transformative in their thinking. The 3SIXTY business leadership training team brings decades of experience to their partners to tailor comprehensive leadership development curriculums that can propel forward any organization. A no-charge assessment form is available at the 3SIXTY Management Services website.

Romanella is available for speaking engagements and media interviews. He can be contacted using the information below or by email at rockyromanella@gmail.com. 'Tighten The Lug Nuts' is available at book outlets everywhere. More information on 3SIXTY Management Services is available at the company's website at http://www.3sixtymanagementservices.com.

Body Shaming, Social Media, Bullying And The Drive To Be Best - Selfie Filmmaker And Positive Psychologist Barbara Becker Holstein Addresses 'Mean Girls'

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

A recent article in the New York Times entitled "When the 'Mean Girls' Were Teen Girls" gave us a look into the history of the stars of the Broadway hit "Mean Girls". The Tony-nominated musical is based on Tina Fey's movie by the same name. In the article three of the stars - Ashley Park, Taylor Louderman and Kate Rockwell - contrast the characters they play with their own high school experiences. Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein, multi-award winning selfie filmmaker, believes there is much to gain from comparing fantasy entertainment to real-world experiences.

"The women who play the mean girls in the Broadway show, 'Mean Girls' were girls themselves," Dr. Holstein stated. "Their responses in The New York Times to how they really were as girls are fascinating.  The general consensus was that they were grateful not be involved with social media.  Also, they had talents that came through in high school without being squashed.  Their advice to young girls can be summed up by Taylor Louderman's remarks: 'Find qualities about yourself that no one else has and love yourself'.

"As a positive psychologist/filmmaker my mission is to inform the public through drama, at times comedic about the developmental issues kids, tweens and teens go through.

"To do this I have developed an unique nitch in which I create Selfiesasfilm and administer 'The Selfie Project'.  In my films, such as 'Conflict,' selected for the New Jersey International Film Festival at Rutgers, to premiere June 9th, 2018, 'Selfies' are used as part of the fimmaking.  Megan Brown, who stars in 'Conflict' did much of her own filming using a smart phone.  Combining the depth of feeling generated by her taking control of her own filming, with the skills of a film crew and then the further skills of a talented film editor, Francesso Nuzzi, leads to a powerful message in less than five minutes.  The message is that kids, in this case, a young teen, are vulnerable.  The girl is vulnerable to all sorts of things: a bully, drinking, drugs, feeling abandoned by her parents, feeling lonely in school, etc.  The audience is left with a push to think and solve problems.  Growing up can not be just left to the kids.

"To help us understand what is really on the minds of kids, I've created 'The Selfie Project'.  This is a way for kids to make selfies that can be uploaded on to You Tube and then shared on www.selfiefilmmakers.com. 'The Selfie Project' show is in the pilot stage of development. Here kids will present their selfies on a critical subject in their lives and then discuss in round table fashion about their thoughts and feelings with each other and experts. To further get the message out as to what is on the minds of kids and how to help people of all ages achieve happiness, THE ENCHANTED SELF Podcast show will once a month bring kids and experts on board with me to discuss issues and possible solutions.

"THE ENCHANTED SELF helps people achieve happiness.  Happiness is something we work at. It involves understand the fragility of kids emotionally and psychologically as they grow.  They must be handled with care.  At each stage of life critical items are on the agenda for them.  Young children are very fragile emotionally.  If they are mishandled, such as being separated suddenly from a loving parent they may be damaged for life.  Up until adulthood the sense of belonging, being cared for and valued by the adults in the child's life is critical. By late childhood, and the tween and teen years lots of things must go well for each child.  However, in a society that is filled with the drama of school shootings, drugs, alcohol, insufficient mental health care, bullying, body shaming, excessive social media use, things get tough for the individual child.

"We should value and handle our children responsibly:

"As a Parent or Guardian: Nurture your child at each stage of development.  Spend quality time, make sure you stay on top of medical or psychological needs of your child.  Stay involved and available.

"As a Society: 1. Good prenatal care available to all.  2. Safe day care and home care for young children. 3.Schools that are safe. 4. Mental health care easily available for kids of all ages and their families. 5. A recognition as a nation that we care about kids, even others that suddenly show up on our doorstep.  We need to try to keep families together, as a sudden separation can lead to permanent psychological damage to youngsters. 6. An understanding that damaging our most precious gifts to the future takes away a positive future for all.  After all, the person who instigates as school shooting was a child once."

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.

It's Just A Test - Prayer Is The Answer: Donna Louis, Award Winning Author Of 'Miracles Of Direction' Shows Us Why Life's Trials Are Tests Given By God


Louis' book, entitled ‘Miracles Of Direction’, is an in-depth study of some of Christianity's most well-documented miracles.

Many Christians are aware that God tests us. God tests us to prove our faith. God will allow a certain amount of trials and tribulations to come our way in this life, however, he will also use some of these trials as a way of testing all of us out from time to time to see if we have learned what He has been teaching us. He rarely, if ever, announces them ahead of time. They just come.

From time to time God will place us in uncomfortable situations that put us under pressure to show what our true character is. If, as Christians, we perceive these types of situations to be God's way of testing us, what is the answer?

The answer is prayer.

"A while back I was introduced to the Book of James that has a very profound set of verses that tell us to expect tests and that we should delight in them," Louis stated. 'My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into diver’s temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. – James 1:2-4'. Now for those of you that have a type A personality like myself this was not something I wanted to read or hear. I am sure no one wants to be joyful when things are not going their way. I am very sure patience is the last thing in anybody’s mind when things are not going smoothly. We want it fixed and done like yesterday. When we are in an uncomfortable situation and our flesh is not enjoying it, we want it fixed immediately. However, that is not the way God works. According to him, tests are beneficial. Tests are God’s way of moving us out of our comfort zones."

According to Louis, there are many types of tests: the People Test, the Pressure Test, The Faith Test, the Patience Test, the Obedience Test and more. The full text of Louis's statement can be read at http://www.miraclebook.net/blog.

Donna Louis helps readers explore miracles both past and present. Her book, 'Miracles of Direction, Miracles of Conquest, Miracles of Provision and Miracles of Purpose' explores biblical miracles that took place while Jesus was here on earth. She then references with miracles that take place on a daily basis in the modern world. She separates these miracles into four categories and presents insightful example of each type, taken directly from the Bible.

Louis knows her subject well, as she has personally experienced four miracles. As the result of those life-altering experiences, she began an in-depth study of some of Christianity's most well-documented miracles. In her book, she attempts to expand upon and explain both the purpose and the direction of those miracles.

Donna will be donating 100% of proceeds from sales of her books from Payhip to March For Our Lives until September 30, 2018. The book is available with discounted pricing at Payhip at http://www.payhip.com/themagic.

Louis has also announced the upcoming release of her latest Christian book, 'Book of Proverbs, Wisdom vs Wilderness'.

'Book of Proverbs – Wisdom vs. Wilderness' delves into the need for gaining greater wisdom. The primary purpose of the Book of Proverbs is to teach wisdom to everyone. The Book of Proverbs provides intellectual depth and insights and exceptional wisdom on how to live a fortunate and tranquil life by honoring and respecting God as omnipotent.

The newest book discusses all chapters in Proverbs 1-31 and brings insight, clarity, and basic meaning to several verses in each chapter to solidify why wisdom is essential and mandatory in life, so readers can live a blessed life versus living a life that is destitute, empty, and obsolete. It is scheduled for release in 2018.

Louis was chosen as a winner in the 2015, 2016 and 2017 '50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading' awards contest. 'Miracles' has also received rave reviews from readers. One review called it "amazing, uplifting and inspirational". Another stated, "I was profoundly impressed by the writing."

Louis has been nominated for the Top Female Author Award in 2018. The worldwide contest presents nominees from countries all over the world including Australia, Barbados, Canada, Croatia, France, Mexico, Netherlands, the UK and the United States.

She is also now making her current book available to both hurricane relief organizations and Christian organizations to be used as a fundraising tool. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the e-book may be donated to those organizations that qualify. Churches and other charitable organizations are welcome to contact Donna using the information below to discuss the details of the program.

Donna Louis is available for media interviews and can be reached using the information below, or by email at louistolouis@aol.com. More information is available at her website. ‘Miracles Of Direction’ is available at online retail book outlets.  More information is available at her website at http://www.miraclebook.net.

About Donna Louis:

Donna Louis is happily married to her husband of 30 years Patrick Louis and currently resides in Florida. She lives to accomplish the task that God created her for and on a daily basis to follow Proverbs 3:5-6. "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."

Jody Sharpe, Award Winning Author Of 'The Angel's Daughter', Relates Tale Of Encounter With Real Life Angel On 'Tuesdays With The Angels'

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

In the 'Tuesdays With The Angels' section of her website, Jody Sharpe, author of ‘The Angel's Daughter’ and 'To Catch An Angel', recently related a story about an angel she encountered in Houston, TX.

"I visited Houston in June many years ago," Sharpe stated. "My dear friend Nancy asked me to go with her to visit her friend for a girls week. Nancy knew I was struggling, mourning the death of my precious daughter, Kate. My fear of flying had escalated and moving on was difficult.

"We went shopping in a lovely department store, nice and cool away from the heat. We met a kind older gentlemen in the men’s department. He appeared to be shopping as Nancy bought a tie for her husband. This man talked to us for a moment exchanging pleasantries. He was visiting Houston also he said. We thought nothing of our meeting until the next day when Nancy took me to the town of Kemah to go shopping again. She had never been to the town about 34 miles from Houston.

"We were in a tiny gift shop when we heard someone say,”Hello!” It was the gentleman again. We were surprised and talked to him a few moments. He said to me, “See you at the airport!” We laughed with him at the coincidence of meeting again, and turned away to look at the gifts. When we turned back to him a minute or so later the man was gone. We thought it was odd. Did he have time to leave the store? Nancy and I immediately left the store and looked up and down the street.He was nowhere. We sat in chairs outside a restaurant trying to figure out what the odds were we would see the man again especially so far away from Houston and in the same little store. All these years later we still talk about the man. Maybe he was an angel, we think, sent to comfort me and ease my fear of flying."

More is available at her website at http://www.jodysharpe.com.

In her 'Tuesdays With The Angels' blog series, Jody Sharpe presents quotes about angels drawn from several of her books and fascinating angel stories from herself and others who submit stories for publication.

New installments in the series include:

Tuesdays With The Angels - Charlotte's Web

Tuesdays With The Angels - Friends

Tuesdays With The Angels - Mr. Angel

Tuesdays With The Angels - Messages

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.

Angels and stories about angelic beings have been with us since Biblical times. While some people believe angels are real and do exist, others dismiss the possibility. There is tremendous interest in the subject. A Google search lists hundreds of millions of results. A number of videos on Youtube claim to have caught angels in action - on film.

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.

Maggie and Noah embark on a journey to find our world is all awash with angels.

Award Winning Author And Keynote Speaker Joseph Ganci Uses Modern-Day Revelations Redefining Old Testament Revelations To Entertain, Motivate, And Enlighten

In Ganci's innovative and highly praised novel, 'Gideon The Sound and the Glory,' book lovers find themselves in the very midst of ancient conflicts, only to be swept away with an entirely fresh perspective on mystical teachings found in scripture - now living lessons - filled with action and adventure.

People dismiss the Church’s ancient teachings for many reasons. Some people believe that the Old Testament has little or no relevance in this fast-paced digital age. Others believe everything that could be said has been said. For some those old, well-worn stories from the Bible have lost their appeal. Many stories are viewed as supernatural tales told children.

Award-winning author and keynote speaker Joseph Ganci believes that Biblical accounts can be more than just dusty history - it can be passionately entertaining. He brings the Bible to life and rekindles the fires of ancient storytelling. 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.

Ganci pierces the veil with a penetrating vision of long-held Bible mysteries that are far and away daring and unusual. 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 biblical history geography.

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

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

“I wrote my book,” Ganci stated, “as one day I was reading the Bible. It was my fifth pass from cover to cover. I had just reached Judges Six when a phrase leaped off the page – And Gideon sent messengers throughout all mount Ephraim, saying, come down against the Midianites, and take before them ‘the waters unto Bethbarah’ and Jordan.”

“I started digging down and found it meant the shallow waters and the only fording place of the entire Jordan River. It was in effect a military dispatch – directing the army of Ephriam to cut off the desperate flight of the remaining Midian camel cavalry. Gideon would drive the enemy like hounds to the hunter. A long-held mystery started to unravel, and with that, I was off to the races.”

“Fresh insights are unearthed when discovering hidden connecting details found in ancient scripture. These viewpoints are only revealed when man’s ability has sufficiently grown, and that he is now ready to receive them. My speaking goals are to entertain, motivate and to have the audience leave enlightened and satisfied.”

Ganci believes that Old Testament revelations are the Word of God. At the same time, that many needful details remained buried until the information age of discovery made them obvious and visible to the naked eye. These insights create a middle ground of understanding. As a dedicated and highly motivated researcher, he proposes there are many undiscovered nuggets of spiritual gold in the original manuscripts. He shines a new light on ancient texts and removes the black or white argument of the all-or-nothing question of modern-day revelations. He is adept at untangling the philosophical and theological human-made knots. And he gives us an opportunity to take a fresh look at what some consider to be foregone conclusions.

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 Ganci’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.
