Book Tour & Giveaway: Within a Captain's Soul

Captains of the Scarlet Night #5
by Lisa A. Olech

Genre: Historical Romance

Pub Date: 8/1/2017

Stormy seas, a captive heart, and a coupling that breaks all the rules . . .

After years of committed service, Captain William “Bump” Quinn has finally taken the helm of the pirate ship Scarlet Night. But when rough waters send the Night off course, William winds up shipwrecked and alone on enemy shores—and prisoner to China’s most powerful pirate queen.

Captain Jian Jun is as alluring as she is formidable, and she’s careful not to let anyone too close. But the silence of the handsome Jamaican pirate in her custody intrigues her. Tempted by his topaz eyes and the strength of his character, she allows the captive into her inner sanctum. Though their bond defies all convention, Jun finds she is powerless against the emotions Will stirs in her. She prays their first union will not be her last. But with danger lurking in unexpected places, her beloved pirate may soon get the chance to prove he is every inch the hero he seems in her arms . . .

Hiring a Roofing Contractor in Southeast Michigan

Are you looking for a roofing company in Southeast Michigan? Do your research and don’t settle for less. There are several roofers in Southeast Michigan. Choosing one might seem a backbreaking task to you. Below are some considerations that you must pay attention to other than their expertise and pricing.

Reference Check

The most straightforward approach to assess work quality of a roofing contractor is to review his previous jobs. When you approach roofers, many will welcome you and give a list of past references to convince you. However, you should search for references that are some years old in order to assess the durability of their construction work. In addition, you must choose a roofer/contractor whom you can carry candid communication with to resolve issues on a prompt basis. If you consistently hear negative reviews about a certain contractor from his references, do not overlook them. Everyone is in the market to sell their offerings. So you may find someone nice at first, yet you should only proceed after trusting the facts and legitimacy.

A Roofing Contractor Must Be Insured

While you need to be careful of those contractors who avoid furnishing references, you will find some roofers who have just landed in the industry. If they are unable to provide references, do a background check on them yourself? Make an internet query about their company; see if their name appears on any negative review. You can also visit the locale they are based in and ask the neighboring people if they have had a roofing experience with them. In any case, make sure that the roofing contractor, whether a starter or experienced, is insured including liability coverage and worker’s compensation policy. Otherwise, you will be held liable for any injury that may occur within your residential premises.

Now available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble from Sacred Stories Publishing is the spiritual self-help book The Forgiveness Solution by Rev. Misty Tyme.

What's the book about?

All major religions and societies agree forgiveness is a good idea. But what they haven’t taught us is how to forgive. The Forgiveness Solution gives you the how in a proven step by step formula that brings relief from the hurt and puts you on the road to living a happy, healthy life.

Rev. Misty teaches you how to shift your perspective and adjust your expectations of people and situations, so you can move past the pain of un-forgiveness. Rev. Misty draws upon her intensely personal experiences of facing deep sadness, anger, and grief with the power of forgiveness. She meets you where you are and helps you walk through your forgiveness journey. 

Here's a sneak peek:

How do you forgive yourself for a behavior you are not proud of? After talking to many people, I was relieved to find out I am not the only one with this dilemma. We all make unintentional mistakes and bad decisions. These decisions hurt others; and, when we realize the pain we caused, we feel rotten. We can apologize, and maybe the person will forgive us. However, many times, trust is also lost.

Learning Through Online Psychology Courses

It's natural for human beings to have an interest in psychology. After all, it's our brain that controls pretty much everything we do in life. Human behavior, depression, psychiatry in neuroscience, and other such topics have been of interest to human beings since before these things even had names. Neuroscience is a branch of psychology that looks at the nervous system. It's one of the most complex systems in the body and requires years and years of study to acquire a degree in neuroscience. Other people prefer to stick to behavioral subjects in psychology, as neuroscience is much more science-focused and less humanities focused.

Studying psychology online

In recent years, online courses in psychology have become more popular. It isn't difficult to see why. After all, attending a class physically can be stressful and can even interfere with work hours. Many people prefer to learn from the comforts of home. Advances in online psychology courses have come quickly and efficiently. They vary in nature.
