From a very young age, my passion for reading has given me wonderful opportunities to grow, explore, and understand the TRUTH. It has helped to find answers to most of the important questions that matter to the human race. The way to transformation is that all that you think, all that you see, and all that you experience is not the result of that which comes "to" you, but rather what that comes "from" within you, always and forever. I remove the veil of misperception, that "what I see, and experience is happening to me", and truly realize, "The divine brilliance that I am", is the cause of all that I experience. Find answers to 5 important questions for Every Light Walker aka Spiritual Seeker: 1. Who am I? 2. Who is God? 3. Why am I here? 4. What is my purpose? 5. Is there a point to all this, that which we call LIFE? Now I earnestly realize what the meaning behind our life is. Learning excites me and it is the only thing for me. My journey into the invisible and the unknown has led me to sincerely know and feel GOD’s presence. In my quiet stillness, I pierce through the fabric of our universe and glimpse through the veil of misperceptions of our physical world of ten trillion things! In silence, I discern, through my inner vision; the divine design of life. Despite its chaos and mishaps, I can see the wonders of a perfect and intelligently designed world. When I accurately apply the magical Universal Laws in my daily living, I mastermind the secret to “begin-ness”. I know that I am in this world but not of it. The secret is that our human problems can never be solved at the human level, instead, we need to understand and demonstrate Spiritual TRUTHS in our daily living to overcome all limiting beliefs and misconceptions. I am free to choose my freedom or captivity. Why not choose well? Click to buy if you want some answers. Love, Light, and Joy Always - Divya Vinai Shah

This book won't waste your time. It explains the fundamentals leading to investment success while avoiding the all-too-common "dumbed-down" information that just tells readers what they already know. Sophisticated concepts like "marked-to-market" and "the snapback phenomenon" and "Modern Portfolio Theory" are some of the book's themes that can lead to confidence and success as investors. For retirees, the book's purpose is to provide a do-it-yourself course of action allowing for an "end-run" around the financial services industry with the latter's excessive costs --- costs that eat up what could otherwise have been more retirement income. Knowing how to effectively self-manage assets and implement a mix of cost-effective investments is a critical skill for retirees. Understanding and applying some simple basics will deliver the most on-going income while still combating the disasterous effects of inflation.

Self-publishing can be more rewarding than being published - creatively, financially, and in other respects - if you go about it the right way. You could well be confused, as many self-publishers are, by the multiplicity of options available to you. The good news is that you can now make your books visible and available to book buyers around the world at minimal cost. An ebook (PDF) edition of this book was made available worldwide at no cost, an edition for the Kindle, iPad, Nook, Sony eReader and other e-readers made available for GBP95.00, a paperback edition made available worldwide for GBP42.00. As a self-publisher, what are your options for new books? Should you choose an offset lithography print run, a digital print run, or maybe print-on-demand (POD)? Hardback or paperback, or other formats? Possibly an ebook too? And, crucially, how will you get your books distributed cost-effectively to buyers around the world? This book will take you through the options and explain their relative advantages and disadvantages. It provides guidance on selecting book topics with strong sales potential; writing distinctively; obtaining a professional critique of your work; writing content-rich non-fiction; writing in a number of genres; choosing between hardback and paperback and other formats; choosing the optimal printing method; book content formatting; book specifications; colour plate section options; distribution; print-on-demand ('POD'); order fulfilment; dealing with Amazon, Lightning Source, Nielsen, and Bowker; printers; copy-editors and proofreaders; typesetters; cover designers; photographers; pricing and marketing your books; and a whole lot more besides. The book includes a sample chapter from the author's international bestseller Two Men in a Car (a businessman, a chauffeur, and their holidays in France) along with the plate section from the book. Mike Buchanan, a British writer and former business consultant, is the author of eight books since 2008. He's been published internationally by a leading publisher (in English and Chinese editions), and he's self-published. He much prefers self-publishing for a variety of reasons. In January 2010, at the age of 52, he took early retirement and now writes and self-publishes full-time. He developed the model of 'commercial self-publishing' outlined in this book. The model has been designed to help self-publishers enjoy their writing more, increase their output of strong titles, and maximise their profits.
