With its own cadence, tone and rhythm, your voice is as unique as a fingerprint, and conveys even more meaning than the words you say. But your voice can also get in the way: we find ourselves mumbling when we want to sound confident, squeaky when we want to be taken seriously, and off-key on those crucial high notes at choir or karaoke. This is a Voice is a practical system of step-by-step vocal warm ups and exercises, each one illustrated with striking graphic design. By following these simple techniques, anyone can gain more control over their voice - whether to project confidence and be more persuasive at work, or just to sing in tune. Divided into sections including speeches, using your voice in the workplace, singing and opera, the book includes guidance on things like breathing and posture, as well as tricks to combat issues such as groggy morning voice or nerves. There are even sections on ventriloquism and beatboxing! This book is both an unusual gift and an essential toolkit to help you transform the way you sound.

Master thief Christmas "Crazy-Eyes" Parker has murdered a path from one end of the galaxy to the other, earning a living as a hired gun for the Galactic Coalition, the singular government controlling all planets inhabited by mankind. When an armored truck job goes sideways on the planet Eridan, Parker puts herself at odds with her government liaison, Horace Murchison (who betrays Parker thanks to a convincing religious experience), and her boss, industrial magnate Atusa Navarro, a woman who is equal parts generous philanthropist and ruthless killer. While Parker looks to repay Murchison's betrayal with a bullet and recover the package she was sent to steal off the truck -- whatever it was -- Navarro struggles to shake the attention of detective Benjamin Weizmann, a persistent and intelligent man willing to risk personal ruin for the sake of a case as big as hers. Coming in the middle of an election season for the Coalition, Weizmann's investigation threatens the government's legitimacy. The package Parker stole off that armored truck, meanwhile, threatens to forever alter what it means to be human.

Where do we go when we die? At the time of death, do we automatically get on an escalator to heaven, or do we have a choice to go forward or not? Through communicating with the spirit realm of heaven and earth, Kathleen and Virginia discover that the God-given gift of choice is infinite. Some people choose to remain here, earthbound, after their death. What happens to these lost souls? This is a true story of two women who reach out in love to touch those who are stuck in the quicksand of an existence between worlds. They are not alone. Jesus, the Mother of God, angels, and many others in spirit join them. They are guided, supported, and protected each step of the way. In A Voice Loud as Thunder, we meet two earthbound spirits (ghosts) who died in 1863. One is a Native American from the area now known as Rancho Cucamonga, California, and the other is a soldier who was sent to this state to kill Native Americans. Through their journey of forgiveness and love, we learn how to release our anger and fears that have the power to hold us in an earthbound state after we die. The conversations between these two women and those in the spiritual realm give us an insight into a world that many of us never explore. They bring love, light, and truth to a subject that has been misunderstood by many.

What you are about to read began in my heart and found its way to hand written words on 3-ring note book paper. These thoughts that turn into the spoken word I call Reasonings. The words were often spoken to a small group of seekers. Churches often call them sermons or messages, but I call them Reasonings in reference to a biblical passage in Isaiah 1:18: "Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord." This infers to me that it is a co-creation experience. I also appreciate the Rasta spiritual perspective that calls this co-creation process Reasonings to understand (or as Rastafarians say, "to overstand") the ways of God.
