Discover the Formula for Developing Your "It Factor."

 

Have you ever wondered why two people with the same humble background and similar education have dramatically different results with their careers and lives? Why some people are remembered long after they are gone?

The answer is the "It Factor."

The "It Factor" is a combination of charisma, self-discipline, enlightenment, spirituality and karma.

In her new book published by Kismet Publishing, Discovering the It Factor within You: Developing Your Charismatic Personality, Leesa Rowland shares simple steps to learn how to discover and
develop your inherent charisma and personal and authentic uniqueness.
What sets this book apart is that it includes the spiritual and religious aspects of charisma, not just the science.

"I am personally moved and fascinated by the care and compassion of Leesa's book. I have read many books on self-help issues, the inner child, charismatic personalities, and the effects of our material world and social status—but the IT Factor encapsulates in a very kind and gentle way how YOU can be a better person. When you read this you will come away with positive thoughts that create positive results. Remember, you are what you think you are."
—CHRIS DeROSE, Humanitarian & Activist


 

What if you could look good, feel good, and most importantly, have the life you really want. 

 

Charismatic people are known for turning their dreams into reality. The vibrant sunshine of charisma resides within every individual soul, just waiting to be revealed—and this book is your first step toward discovering your own bright light!

No matter what sort of history this is the book you've been waiting for.

I have only so much time and money how do I know that this book will provide me with what I need?

 

The book takes readers on a journey through Leesa's colorful past and her contemplative path to self-discovery. It provides both Eastern and Western perspectives and advice from spiritual and religious experts. The East and West are both represented by high profile, high achievers, as they share their wisdom in intimate, personal stories.

Do you have to be born beautiful to be charismatic?

 

Leesa's research found that many charismatic people are not necessarily beautiful or handsome, true charisma comes from within, and if you believe that charisma is inside you it can be developed.
Such luminaries such as Abraham Lincoln, Oprah, Mother Teresa, Gandhi, and Martin Luther King Jr. worked hard on their charisma to achieve success and make a positive impact on the world.

Author Gahan Hanmer "The Kingdom on the Edge of Reality" Virtual Book Tour April 20 - May 20 2015




Would if you were able venture back to the Middle Ages without going back in time?

 

About The Book

 

Welcome to Albert Keane’s beautifully designed medieval kingdom nestled in a completely isolated river valley in the Canadian wilderness. Peaceful, happy, and prosperous, it takes nothing from the modern world, not so much as a single clock.
cover of The Kingdom on the Edge of RealityThere is a castle, of course, and a monastery. There is even a pitch dark, rat-infested dungeon – because you simply have to have one if you are trying a rule a feudal kingdom!
Farmers work the land, artisans ply their trades, monks keep school and visit the sick, and nobody (well, almost nobody) misses the modern world at all.
So why has Jack Darcey – actor, wanderer, ex-competitive fencer – been tricked and seduced into paying a visit? And why hasn’t anyone told him that the only way to leave is a perilous trek across hundreds of miles of trackless wilderness without a compass or a map?
Because a tide of fear and violence is rising from the twisted ambitions of one of King Albert’s nobles, and Albert’s fortune teller believes that Jack could turn the tide – if he lives long enough.
Seamlessly blending medieval and modern elements, The Kingdom on the Edge of Reality serves up a heady brew of action, humor, romance and satire in a kingdom set apart in time and space where reality is the dealer’s choice.

About The Author - Gahan Hanmer


Born into a family of actors and painters, Gahan Hanmer naturally gravitated toward the arts. As a youth, he was not an exceptional student or much of an athlete, but he received satisfaction and appreciation from the work he did on the stage, which began when he was eight years old. Under the guidance of his uncle actor Marlon Brando, Gahan developed his talent exclusively as a theater artist, working with many inspired teachers and directors.

In the classical theater Gahan played soldiers, princes, kings and gods, along with beggars, villains, criminals and madmen. Trained in the Stanislavski ‘method’, living truly in the skins and minds of these characters, he absorbed what each of them had to teach him. But life in the theater is a kind of sacrifice; there is little or no money in it. He left the theater and came back to it many times. He wandered, stumbling through life, searching for he wasn’t sure what, supporting himself in a variety of occupations. The real world was his teacher then.

Later in life, when he had outgrown his need for the world of the theater and began living a more normal life, he began to try to organize some of what life had taught him in a novel of romance and adventure. Every night, after his two daughters were in bed, he became the main character in a perilous mythical journey and recorded it as it unfolded in his imagination. Years later, rewritten and revised many times and finally pruned and polished, the result was The Kingdom on the Edge of Reality.

What Readers are Saying....

"I enjoyed The Kingdom on the Edge of Reality. I thought it strongly showed how interdependent we are on the people around us and how that connectedness isn't a bad thing. We spend so much time "alone" in the world, we don't often stop and look around at the people closest to us. Full of intrigue, sword fights, humor, and showcasing the strength of many against the one, this novel is a great read for fantasy lovers!"

    Author Bajeerao Patil "Lifelong Sobriety:"- Virtual Book Tour Dec 2013 - Jan 2014

    Join Author Bajeerao Patil on his Virtual Book Tour starting Dec 19th, sponsored by The YP Publishing.


    Find out how to break the cycle of addiction and find your path to recovery.

     

    About The Book - Lifelong Sobriety 

     

    Lifelong Sobriety is the first recovery book that emphasizes the importance of taking care of emotional health. Prolonged drug use impairs judgment and the ability to focus for long periods of time. Drug users need a short book, with content that demonstrates brevity in every chapter. Lifelong Sobriety is such a book. It is structured around short, precise and highly accessible chapters. Each chapter is designed to teach about or change a specific behavior.
    Chapter contents include extensive anecdotes of current and recovering drug users, along with advice relevant to the chapter topic. There are no scientific studies, no research facts, and no academic jargon that will inspire a drug addict not to seek help or continue the path of recovery. The book offers straight talk in plain sensible language. The thirty-four chapters contain the kind of simple advice a recovering drug addict might encounter in a recovery group.

    These stories will help readers gain insight into their own compulsive behavior, their distorted thinking and help them find the answers to their issues.

    Unravelling The Human Origins Mystery Author Daniel Friedmann "The Broken Gift" Book Tour Sept - Oct 2013

    Join Author Daniel Friedmann on his Virtual Book Tour, starting Sept 12th, sponsored by The YP Publishing.


     Have you ever wondered How did we get here?

    About The Book - The Broken Gift

     

    Was Adam the first man? Was man created by divine act in less than one day almost 6,000 years ago, as the Bible suggests?

    Or did man appear 200,000 years ago as the culmination of numerous human-like species that existed during a span of millions of years, as the scientific record shows?

    Both cannot be right. Or can they?

     Imagine there exist manuscripts, written centuries ago, that could help us objectively decipher
    Genesis and thereby extract the timeline and key events recounting the appearance and early history of our species, Homo sapiens, precisely as identified by the latest scientific evidence derived from the fossil record and genetic studies.

    The Broken Gift carefully examines the relationship between scientific theory and biblical teachings. The book approaches the human origins debate from a fresh perspective informed by both scientific and scriptural research. The book demonstrates alignment between key events and their dates relating to the appearance and early history of our species as described in Genesis chapters 1 through 11 (Adam, Adam’s descendants, the Flood, and the fall of Babel) with those derived from scientific observation. Could both be true? Is the evidence solid or is it sophistry? You’ll have to be the judge.

    The Broken Gift
    ISBN:  978-0978457228
    Pages:  260 pages

     Is available for purchase at: Amazon,
    iTunes and Kobo.


    What People are Saying...

    "So, how did we get here?

    The author unravels this primordial puzzle in twelve chapters that explore with equal fairness the scientific rationalization and the scriptural explanations. Then, he performs a most intriguing clarification: according to his detailed calculations, the two accounts can be fused. He reveals that their differences may have been mirrors of each other all along.

    Readers will be delighted with other aspects of this book in addition to the above mentioned topics. Have you ever wondered just exactly where we are in the Age of Man? Are we near the so-called End Times? Was Eden a myth, another dimension somewhere between corruptibility and incorruptibility, or a real place on the map? Did sin cause mankind's downfall? Can we comprehend God's creative process?

    THE BROKEN GIFT should win awards for excellence. Readers will discover an absorbing attempt to brush away the sands of time and reveal a new view of eternal truths, such as the need for humanity, facts and fiction surrounding The Flood, Babel, Wave-Partical Duality, and Time. Readers will fairly float through the book with ease, for despite the lofty subject matter, he writes engagingly with excellent grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, and spelling and composes his book in an easy-to-read format that can be absorbed by anyone. Best of all, readers need never wonder how he arrived at any idea. Footnotes abound that document every resource the author used to springboard to his inspirations. Three Annexes, a Glossary, and an Index make return reading a snap, and readers will want to return because the book will be widely discussed."
     David W. Menefee, award winning author, film historian and screen writer 


    "The premise of this book, supported by many thought-provoking arguments, is that a dual analysis of scientific evidence and the material related in Genesis lead to the same events and timelines for the beginnings of mankind. Using both scientific and scriptural research, the author an engineer - seeks to demonstrate a meaningful alignment between what science and the bible tell us.

    Discussions cover both scientific inquiries, the controversial subject of Creationism, and the current situation of both. The fossil record, genetics, and the timeline for the appearance of homo sapiens are covered. There's a fascinating interpretation of scriptures as well as the critical conversion of human and divine time to reach similar conclusions regarding humanity's timeline.  Many readers may discern revelations about revelation in Genesis.

    The book ponders whether there is scientific evidence for the flood. The scientific history of language, from the perspectives of the bible and science, is also especially interesting. Illuminating figures and tables, enhancing the textual assertions, are spread among the chapters. Ample subheads facilitate easy reading of the clearly written.book. A glossary of relevant terminology is very handy. The cover design is intriguing. The title by itself is insufficient to reflect the book's contents. A subtitle suggesting the premise and citing science and the bible would be very worthwhile.
    Judge, Writer’s Digest 21st Annual Self-Published Book Awards


     About Daniel Friedmann's Other Books


    The author’s first book, The Genesis One Code, demonstrates an alignment between the dates of key events pertaining to the development of the universe and the appearance of life on earth as described in Chapters 1 and 2 of Genesis, with those derived from scientific theory and observation. This book, The Broken Gift, follows and extends the scope of The Genesis One Code to include the appearance and early history of humans.

    What People are Saying...

      " Writing a blog or podcast or even starting your own website might be more than a little enamoring to some. With all the technology out there, some of us still need to be held by the hand and guided through the steps. This Is The Book! Author Yvonne Wu takes the time to introduce WordPress and explain what it is and isn't capable of doing. She then provides snapshots of screens as examples so that there is no misunderstanding. It doesn't stop there! Tips on the various applications are provided to enable the reader to use the program to its maximum potential. I am personally so glad to have had the chance to read this short how-to book. Researching and contemplating on a blog and website for quite a while, now, it just seemed too difficult to proceed. My mind has been changed! I feel empowered by the simplicity of it all. The language is something anyone with a little computer knowledge can understand. Suggestions provided by the author seem logical and to the point. I vow to try at least some of them! Writing a reference guide, especially one regarding websites and so on surely must be somewhat difficult but Ms. Wu makes it seem as though it were as natural as breathing. This book would be great for tutorial centers, libraries, computer labs and of course the home collection. I highly recommend "Blogging for Smarties" to anyone with an inkling to delve into their own cyber presence."

     "Before designing your website (or before you approach a web designer), identify your target market so you can create a website that will attract your intended audience."
      "Today, it takes a lot more than a way with words to be a successful author. The quality of an author's work is arguably just as important as how they market themselves. Yvonne Wu has provided a strong compendium for authors hoping to make their work stand out amid the information age's new multitudes of authors. The publishing industry has changed dramatically. Without publishers willing to take a chance on emerging fiction, it behooves the self-published author to become his or her own marketing department. The easiest way for an author to do this, Wu explains, is to cultivate a strong web presence. Wu steers her readers toward WordPress, an accessible blogging/web hosting platform. Geared toward both the tech-savvy and inexperienced author, she explains, step by step, how to create a blog from the ground, up. Taking things a step further, Wu provides instruction on how to make your blog pay, a place where other how-to guides fall short. Through the use of syndication techniques, such as RSS feeds and social networks, Wu instructs the reader on how to bring in the traffic that can translate to cash flow through speaking engagements and advertising. In the new fiction and non-fiction market, the harsh reality is that crafting strong prose is not enough to sell. The market is awash with talent—and your talent needs to stand out. Wu's guide to blog creation and strategies will help you ensure your work gets the attention it deserves."
