Tug-of-War by Judith Somborac Book Feature





Title: Tug-Of-War
Author: Judith Somborac
Publisher: iUniverse
Pages: 148
Genre: Historical Fiction
Format: Kindle/Paperback

 In 1942, in the midst of World War II, three factions struggle for power and control over Serbia: the Royalists, the Partisans, and the Nazis. For those living there, life was put on hold indefinitely while they coped daily with the terrorization of war—an especially disheartening situation for the country’s young people. Fifteen-year-old Miriana, an only child, lives in a small, two-bedroom house in Bela Palanka, Serbia, with her parents, who farm and run a saw and gristmill. Their tiny home now accommodates her mother’s sister and nephew, who have been forced to evacuate from German-occupied Belgrade. Miriana’s aunt is frequently called upon by the Germans to translate for them—a task made more stressful by the fact that the family is also hiding a Partisan soldier in the cellar of the house. Being caught means certain death. Meanwhile, Miriana’s best friend, Stefan, supports his widowed mother and aging grandparents on a nearby farm; he resents having to abandon his aspirations for an education and his passion for the violin to run the farm. Their existence is fraught with the angst of evening curfews, blackout curtains at night, unforeseen air raids, and conflict with the Nazis, but family, friends, and small pleasures propel them through a war that threatens their happiness and their lives on a daily basis.

Judith Somborac is an occasional teacher and a ski instructor who works in both capacities with children and teenagers. Judith has a BA in English and French from the University of Guelph. She currently lives in Collingwood, Ontario.

Genre: Science Fiction
Format: Ebook 

This is the culmination of what began on October 6, 2013, at 8:12 a.m. It was to be The Blue Book: The Ultimate Project. In increasing clarity, these books show first the preparation and then the arrival in the first book—which, I freely admit, is not easy to read. But any change that I made, made it nearly impossible to continue until I reversed the change that I had made. It was realised that things had to be effectively translated. This is what led to the creation of The Red Book. So using what I had learned and figured out, I applied the same technique to a digital camera, and the results speak for themselves.

Secret History by Martin Roberts Book Feature


Title: Secret History
Author: Martin Roberts
Publisher: AuthorHouse
Pages: 300
Genre: History
Format: Kindle/Paperback

 This book is a fascinating account of a number of criminal cases in the United States and in the United Kingdom, some of which resulted in wrong convictions. The book is part narrative, part analysis. The analysis, in particular the demolition of the reputation of Whittaker Chambers,ex-spy and idol of many Americans (he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom) will arouse debate and rethinking of the real lessons of the cases. The British cases will shock the complacency of many British people. Both parts are relevant to the current debate on how to deal with Islamic terrorists, whose fanaticism recalls that of the IRA and supporters of Communism. The book includes an analysis of Communism and the way in which its supporters manipulate fact for their own ends.

 Martin Roberts is a British subject living in Belgium. He began to study contested verdicts in criminal cases when he started to study for a law degree, and this book is the result. He trained as an archivist and worked in that field for 26 years. This has given him a lot of patience and a bit of scepticism about what records tell us. He has sought to make his book user-friendly by quoting online sources and allowing the reader to find his way through the facts and arguments to reach his own conclusions.

Findependence Day by Jonathan Chevreau Book Blast


Title: Findependence Day
Author: Jonathan Chevrau
Publisher: Trafford
Pages: 290
Genre: Businesss
Format: Kindle/Hardcover/Paperback 

Get rich slowly! Financial independence is a marathon, not a sprint. The financial crisis revealed the hazards of financial illiteracy. Governments desperately want citizens to become financially independent so they’ll be less of a burden on them. Findependence Day presents personal finance in a “can’t put down” story format easily digested by young adults entering the work force and the world of money. Because money problems often cause marital breakups, it focuses on the financial journey of a young couple who experience the usual ups and downs of job loss, buying homes, raising children, investing and pensions, starting businesses, coping with stock market volatility and more.

The secrets of financial independence are critical wherever you are in the financial life cycle:
• Newlyweds embarking on family formation will discover the importance of financial planning.
• Debt-plagued graduates will be motivated to embrace “guerrilla frugality.”
• Home-owners will learn the foundation of financial independence is a paid-for home.
• Those in their first jobs will embrace employer 401(k) plans, traditional IRAs and Roth IRAs.
• New parents will discover the need for life insurance and saving for children’s education.
• Mid-life investors will learn how to cut costs in their portfolios while benefiting from the expertise of financial planners.
• Those near retirement will learn about advanced concepts like annuities and Asset Dedication.

Jonathan Chevreau is the editor of MoneySense magazine, former personal finance columnist for the Financial Post and author of nine financial books, including The Wealthy Boomer: Life After Mutual Funds. He’s active in social media and blogs at www.findependenceday.com.

“Once in a blue moon, a financial book is written that should be required reading for all. Such is the case with Findependence Day.” -- Peter Grandich, The Grandich Letter

“A tour de force: a personal-finance book that is hard to put down.” – Larry MacDonald, CanadianBusiness.com

“Having some fun while learning what's good for you is a double win -- particularly learning what we all need to know to live happier lives." – Charles Ellis, author of Winning the Loser’s Game

This revised all-American edition features end-of-chapter summaries of financial concepts learned, a glossary and bibliography of books that will boost your financial literacy – or that of your kids.
