The Power of Patience

96 Traits of Highly Effective People

4.7 stars on 15 reviews

Personal Success / Effective Communication


This book features the most distinctive characteristics of extraordinarily effective people, from leaders to regular folk.

In this book we tear down the cliché that says ‘faster is better.’ No, slower is better and more effective in the short, medium and long terms. We delved into the minds of highly strategic people to understand what sets them apart from the rest of us. The lessons we learned can be applied in all aspects of life, from business and career planning to politics, social activism, nonprofit planning and relationship counseling.

The book contains a helpful Discussion Guide and a sample chapter of sequel Unchain Your Heart – 95 Clever Ways to Be Absolutely Irresistible and Ignite Passion in Your Relationship. Through burning questions, the book gives extensive advice on how to use the discussion guide, how to inform decisions related to the topics at hand, and how to best read it – alone, in reading groups, with your partner, or as part of learning activities, among others.

After reading this book, you will know how to:

  • Identify the key traits that make some people highly effective;
  • Apply those traits to your life, career and relationship; and
  • Use patience as a potent tool in life, business or political negotiation, business planning, and career planning.

Stretching the Borders

4.8 stars on 20 reviews

Contemporary Romance

Sometime reality is beyond all imagination.

When you play the game, stretching the borders, you can get lost and forget the rules.

Naomi leads a so-called peaceful life. She lives in a lovely apartment in the center of Tel Aviv with her loving, supporting husband and their two teenage children, works for a daily newspaper, and in her free time concentrates on art. But all this isn’t enough when her entire world is turned upside down one evening after which she’s drawn into a maelstrom of emotions and urges, lies and enigmas. Secrets from the past surface and merge with new ones, and Naomi discovers she’s living a complex life with parallels in several worlds: the people closest to her are also hiding from her their secrets and abusing her trust.

Forgiveness, absolution, and feelings of guilt
Stretching the Borders raises questions about the essence of forgiveness, absolution, and feelings of guilt, as they face secrets and lies, some less white than others. The threads wrap around each other in a conflict solved only through a process of an agonizing journey, which doesn’t always achieve its desired comfort.

Painstaking exposing of feelings
With a sharp scalpel and piercing sensitivity, Yael Shachnai invades her protagonist’s soul, painstakingly exposing the feelings and thoughts hiding behind the pretty clothes and carefully applied makeup, while also bravely and honestly scrutinizing concepts such as happy families, relationships, family dinners, protective motherhood, loyalty, and love.

Alien in the Delta

4.3 stars on 47 reviews

Self Help

Grandfather shot the man as he opened the gate to the front yard. The man died on the spot. After killing the man, my grandfather went into hiding for seven years. This event was the legacy left to my father by his father. Would what happened thirty years before my birth have an impact on my life?

Alien in the Delta takes you on a journey that highlights the life experiences of a boy from the age of six through manhood. He grew up on the Mississippi River in the Arkansas Delta, but felt out-of-place in that environment. In his home town prejudice and inequality were practice openly. His escape from the Delta was not realized until he went abroad. You go with him on his adventures in the rural south and throughout Europe.

Author Interview #328: Homeless Hero by Michael Tapscott

October 29, 2014

Our interview today is with Mike Tapscott author of Homeless Hero: Understanding the Soul of Home (4.9 stars on 44 reviews) (Social Sciences, non-fiction, 4.9 stars, 40 reviews), grand prize winner of the 2014 Great Southwest Book Festival.

A brief description before we get to the interview: Homeless Hero: Understanding the Soul of Home explores humanity and homelessness in a way that is vibrantly vivid and personally accessible to the reader. Many questions that we have probably asked ourselves at one time or another are addressed: what is homelessness, why does it exist, are they just on drugs, how do I help, when is helping really enabling, and why does it bother me so much in the first place? Here is a compilation of experiences from Tapscott’s experimental journey into life on the streets, his own volunteer work, and his fascinating interviews with individuals utilizing and individuals working for the social service system. Homeless Hero is a case study, an experiment, an adventure, and a multi-layered examination of American society that seeks to expand the readers’ understanding of homelessness and more importantly their own humanity. Homeless Hero: Understanding the Soul of Home is available in print and e-book through Amazon and other major retailers.


1. What inspired you to write Homeless Hero?

My father. When he retired, he took up volunteer work at a homeless shelter in Albuquerque. I was shocked. I was thinking he would travel the world and play golf.

Trying to make sense of his decision led me to write this book and answer the question, what is homelessness? It’s a difficult question to answer with any authority. Think about it. Can explain homelessness? 

2. What’s your book about?

Besides homelessness, it’s about you and me. The book approaches homelessness from up close without staring it in the face. It goes beyond exploring the issue from the outside and invites readers to take a journey with me where true exploration of the self begins—of self and other. I think that’s something that comes natural to writers and readers that other people don’t get. We sense that lack of separation between self and subject, because it takes both—to read or to write.

Treasure Me

(Liberty Series Book 1)

4.5 stars on 113 reviews

Women’s Fiction

Welcome to Book One of The Liberty Series, where love, friendship and family life arrive with a second chance in the most heartwarming circumstances.

Petty thief Birdie Kaminsky has arrived in Liberty, Ohio to steal a treasure hidden since the Civil War. She’s in possession of a charming clue passed down in her family for generations: Liberty safeguards the cherished heart.

The beautiful thief wants to go straight. She secretly admires the clue’s author, freedwoman Justice Postell, who rose above the horrors of slavery to build a new life in Ohio. According to family lore, Justice left South Carolina at the dawn of the Civil War. Heavy with child, she carried untold riches on her journey north. As Birdie searches for the treasure, she begins to believe a questionable part of the story: a tale of love between Justice and Lucas Postell, the French plantation owner who was Birdie’s ancestor.

If the stories are true, Justice bore a child with Lucas. Some of those black relatives might still live in town. Birdie can’t help but wonder if she’s found one—Liberty’s feisty matriarch, Theodora Hendricks, who packs a pistol and heartwarming stories about Justice. Birdie doesn’t know that an investigative reporter who has arrived in town will trip her up—as will her conscience when she begins to wonder if it’s possible to start a new life with stolen riches. Yet with each new clue she unearths, Birdie begins to discover a family history more precious than gems, a tradition of love richer than she could imagine.

The books of The Liberty Series work as stand-alone novels you may enjoy in any order. Look for the other books in the series: Second Chance Grill, The Impossible Wish and Four Wishes.

A phone call. A common enough event, sometimes welcome, sometimes annoying, but seldom life changing. Or so we assume. But assumptions are dangerous things, and the reality is we all live one phone call away from disaster. One cheerful ring away from news of a tragic accident. One muted buzz from learning a lifetime of memories have disappeared in a raging house fire.

And so it is for Tom Dugan, rolling though the London night, the woman he loves in the taxi beside him. Life is good by any measure — until his phone rings, alerting him to the arrival of two old Russian friends with a very big problem.

Dugan’s attempts to help his friends rescue an innocent girl from the Russian mob plunge him into a world he’d scarcely imagined, endangering him and everyone he holds dear. A world of modern day slavery and unspeakable cruelty, from which no one will escape, unless Dugan can weather a Deadly Crossing.

West Chatham was a quiet town, sleepily wrapped up in its suburban comforts. It was a place where everyone knew that every day would play out to the same familiar melody, and every night would shroud them in tranquil silence. It was a simple town, with simple people living simple lives- or so it seemed from the outside looking in.

Until the day came when dozens of mauled and devoured carcasses were revealed by the unblinking light of the sun. And the night came when concealed horrors lurked, piercing the shrouded silence with bestial howls. For once The Pack claims a territory as its own, the feeding frenzy begins.

But Fate believes in them…

So what happens when their worlds collide and disaster strikes? When they’re thrown together under strange circumstances and embark on an epic road trip to catch a plane to a wedding a long way from home? The clock is ticking…and they are seriously ticking each other off. But they’re about to discover just how thin the line is between love and hate.

As Tom Dugan and Alex Kairouz, his partner and best friend, struggle to ransom their ship and crew from murderous Somali pirates, things take a turn for the worse. A US Navy contracted tanker with a full load of jet fuel is also hijacked, not by garden variety pirates, but by terrorists with links to Al Qaeda, changing the playing field completely.

With a possible link between piracy and terrorism now in play, the US and British goverments order the halt of all negotiations for captive ships, and enraged pirates ratchet up the mistreatment of the captive crews. When one of their crewman is murdered in front of him on a live video feed, a frustrated Dugan takes matters into his own hands and starts his own rescue operation, only to stumble across something far more sinister — a rogue salvage operation for a long lost weapon of mass destruction. Isolated at sea on an old tanker previously destined for the ship breakers, Dugan and his hastily assembled little force of Russian mercenaries find themselves the last line of defense between the world and a terrifying bio-weapon.

Weaving historical fact with speculative fiction, Deadly Coast takes the reader from London board rooms into the very real world of modern day pirates — and their victims.

While some parents support his efforts, many sabotage them—and isolated administrators make the work of Lofthouse and his peers even more difficult. Throughout this journal, though, Lofthouse seems able to keep the hope alive that there’s a future for each student that doesn’t include jail—thanks in large part to his sixth period journalism class and its incredible editor, Amanda.” – Bruce Reeves

Deadly Straits

4.5 stars on 499 reviews


When marine engineer and very part-time spook Tom Dugan becomes collateral damage in the War on Terror, he’s not about to take it lying down.

Falsely implicated in a hijacking, he’s offered a chance to clear himself by helping the CIA snare their real prey, Dugan’s best friend, London ship owner Alex Kairouz. Reluctantly, Dugan agrees to go undercover in Alex’s company, despite doubts about his friend’s guilt. Once undercover, Dugan’s steadfast refusal to accept Alex’s guilt puts him at odds not only with his CIA superiors, but also with a beautiful British agent with whom he’s romantically involved.

When a tanker is found adrift near Singapore with a dead crew, and another explodes in Panama as Alex lies near death after a suspicious suicide attempt, Dugan is framed for the attacks. Out of options, and convinced the attacks are prelude to an even more devastating assault, Dugan eludes capture to follow his last lead to Russia, only to be shanghaied as an ‘advisor’ to a Russian Spetsnaz unit on a suicide mission.

Deadly Straits is a non-stop thrill ride, from London streets, to the dry docks of Singapore, to the decks of the tankers that feed the world’s thirst for oil, with stops along the way in Panama, Langley, Virginia, and Teheran. Richly spiced with detail from the author’s 30 years sailing, building, and repairing ships worldwide, it is, in the words of one reviewer, “fast-paced, multilayered and gripping.”

Winner 2014 Global Ebook Awards in the Non-Fiction True Crime Category.

Runner Up in the General Non-Fiction category at the 2014 Hollywood Book Festival.

After three decades as a successful ear surgeon, William Wright, MD is bored beyond belief. He dabbles with retirement, but finds idleness infuriating. He has to do something. Then he sees an ad for a doctor’s position from the Colorado Department of Corrections at a supermax prison. Now that, he thinks, would be different. His wife has some thoughts on the matter too. She thinks her husband just lost his mind and is on a collision course with a prison shiv.

After his first day on the job, he wonders if she wasn’t onto something. His first patient is an arrogant, callous youth convicted of five cold-blooded murders. Dr. Wright has to steel himself not to bolt. Nothing prepares a doctor for life at the Colorado State Penitentiary. He quickly discovers treating maximum security convicts is like treating recalcitrant murderous four-year-olds. Always willing to threaten their doctors with bodily harm, they are more interested in scamming drugs than treatment.

Told with self-depreciating humor and scathing wit, Maximum Insecurity describes Dr. Wright’s adventures practicing medicine in a supermax correctional facility without, he’s glad to say, getting killed even once.
