Ivana Ciglar's (Tusania) review from Goodreads Jun 27, 2016
"It was amazing. Mesmerising swirl of intricate poems and feelings brought to life...

Fate

You are the poem

I dream of writing,
The landscape
I long to paint,
The flashing star
I reach for,
The hand that
Holds my fate.

I tried to start my review with a beautiful line or a deep thought that would reflect my feelings after reading this poetry collection but alas I do not think my words can do it justice so I decided to start with a beautiful short poem that captivated my heart.

Gina McKnight's poems resonate deeply in one's soul and stay there long after the words have been read and processed. The feelings that echo in the words read are ones that inspire, give hope and speak of love. If I could, I would put all of the poems in my review so all of you could experience the same thing I have. But that wouldn't be fair to the author nor would I have enough space so after long thinking I have decided on sharing two poems that touched me deeply. One I have started this review with and the other I will place at the end of it so that the beginning and the end form a circle dedicated to the beautiful mind and soul the author possesses.

I do have to admit that one particular poem made me laugh then it made me grin and then I found myself thinking long of the one I love most deeply with a constant smile on my face. That poem is called "Monday" and you can find it on page 30. I urge you to read it if any way possible for now it is written on a piece of paper and it's hung on my wall so I can always smile whenever I see it when I pass by.

The harmony of the poems sweep you away and bare your soul so be ready to experience a wide range of emotions. These carefully selected poems are a perfect remedy for getting rid of bad emotions that keep you down. Read, smile, laugh, think, ponder, grin, imagine and most of all feel.

*I received a copy of "To the Heart: A poetry collection" by the author Gina McKnight through Goodreads Giveaways and this review is my honest and heartfelt opinion.”

Forever


Forever is how long...

A fleur-de-lis moment,
A snippet in time,
Hung on a day,
Caught in my mind.

Ticks the big hand,
Thoughts bump and collide,
In taupes and euchres,
In webbed shadows you hide.

Grasping the moment,
Caressing the snippet,
Days haunt and hang,

You inhabit my mind
forever...

Love's Nuisance by Dom Crescente


Available in Paperback and eBook here!


Olivia Kirby had always tried to balance out the two worlds of her new found lover and her very troubled best friend. For months Olivia seemed to hold her own, until a horrible event unfolds one summer night forcing her loyalty and trust to be greatly tested between the two.


About the Author
I was born in Staten Island, New York. Growing up, I was usually the "quiet kid" of the bunch. I'm usually a low-key person. I observe my surroundings more than I speak. I was never too sure of who I was, but I knew I had a great memory. One day I took some of those memories, and started writing them down. I wrote down every slither of my memories from my high school and college years. That became my first book titled My Words. I discovered my love for writing after I wrote the first page. I get an incredible rush from every sentence completed. It is great therapy for the mind. Being a writer gives us all the ability to take our unique thoughts, and proudly share them all to the world. I'm now currently writing fiction. The idea of expanding my imagination is extremely fun, and I don't plan on stopping anytime soon.

The Leadership Miracle by Peter M. Deeley, Jr


“This book is not a roadmap; it is more like a bottle washing up on our individual shores. Inside is what’s hidden in all of us: A gift being desperately pled for, and offered at the same time.”
Sydney K. James

Now Available here!


The Time of Fruitless Anger Must Pass
by Peter M. Deeley Jr.

If you want to lead, quell the tempest inside. People look to the North Star – not the wind – for guidance. Power lay in the still, small, calm and clear voice of God within you. Quietly, you will find your voice.

It will be big enough. Loud, clanging gongs are for entertainment. Deep and quiet waters wash away the anxiety of the timid and scared.

Be those waters.

We need you.

What people are saying...
“I’ve personally been impacted by the message Mr. Deeley so eloquently presents in the following pages. As someone who most often works with clients behind the scenes, you have almost certainly never heard my name. I found anonymity far more comfortable than being in the spotlight, and I decided long ago that I preferred it that way. The fact that you are now reading these words serves as a testament to the powerful message this book contains.”

Through these scriptures, I have found answers and peace in the midst of challenging situations. Each devotional has a scripture reading assignment as well as a prayer to focus on for the week and apply it to your life.

America is an Idea and The American Dream is for Everyone by Michael Cyrus Pousti

“Jaw-dropping!”


Why we built empowr.com

From a co-founder of empowr.com comes this "Why?" story behind the massive social platform, empowr, that’s been in the making for fifteen years. Learn exactly what drove the participants (founders, advisers, success coaches and 1,000 employees plus 100,000 alpha test users) in their gigantic moonshot project. After meticulously discussing the "Why?" the author then delves into how empowr has been designed to exploit the exponential characteristics of the web - via its tightly-integrated democratic, economic and educational platform - to deliver opportunity to people everywhere. The book reads like a manifesto and a manual. One can’t help but come away with newfound or elevated inspiration to dream big, take on their own moonshot project and make a massive difference on the planet.


About the Author
Michael C Pousti, Co-Founder of empowr

Mike Pousti is the co-founder of empowr, a partnership between academia and tech entrepreneurs that's attempting to deliver a democratized social media experience where the company is governed by its citizens.

Mike began his entrepreneurial journey when he founded his first start-up during his senior year as a computer engineering student at UC San Diego (UCSD).  Employing 200 people and generating millions of dollars in profits before the age of 22, his company, Higher Educational Resources Corporation, developed the first commercially successful search engine on the Internet, known as the Arpanet.

His next start-up, Productivity Solutions Corporation, was acquired when he was 24 and two years later, Mike started CollegeClub.com, the world’s leading website for the 18-23-year-old demographic.

After the dot-com crash in 2000, CollegeClub.com was acquired, and less than a week later, Mike started Phase 1 of empowr. empowr’s highly patented suite of technologies generated over $150M U.S. and today, empowr's proprietary technologies are used by all major social platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google Plus and Tumblr.

While Mike remains an integral part in the daily operations of empowr, he recently relinquished his CEO position and handed over control of the company to empowr’s citizens, who formally elected their leader (and new President of empowr) via a web-based election.

by C.J. Lledo 

Feeding your horse is possibly the most confusing, frustrating and talked about subject associated with ownership. While making sense of all the different feeds, vitamins, additives, and figuring out how much, how often or how to keep your horse from losing condition is a challenge of its own making.

How to Feed Your Horse clarifies the murky waters surrounding feeding horses, taking into consideration all the various interchangeable circumstances that need to be addressed in order to correctly calculate and manage your horses diet, using what is available to you.

With topics such as:
· Food and How it Affects Your Horse’s Temperament,
· Feeding’s Building Blocks,
· The Seven Golden Rules of Feeding,
· Feeding, Myths, Legends and Hearsay,
· Digestibility of Feeds,
· Quantity vs. Quality,
· Useful Vitamins, Additives and Herbs,
· Common Feeding Problems, and
· Calculating Your Horse’s Diet


These topics make up only part of the book that provides a holistic approach to feeding horses.


About the Author
Having respectively worn the caps of groom, instructor, trainer, stud and stable manager: CJ started her career with horses at age nine, cleaning tack in lieu for pony rides. By age twelve, she worked as a part time groom for a riding school on weekends and holidays, and was fired from a dealing yard at age seventeen for advising clients not to buy a problem horse. She then worked herself into the position of assistant manager of a Quarter Horse stud by age nineteen: And at age twenty-four, was short-listed by some of the top studs: finally accepting the position of stud manager on the biggest Friesian horse stud in the southern hemisphere: where she managed just shy of two hundred Friesians. It was during this time that her ability to profile horses became paramount.

With family life, the need to cut back on hours saw her focus more on instruction and training rather than management. Where she has since laid the foundation for numerous youngsters, both human and equine, to succeed in whatever facet of the sport they selected: and although not competitively minded, she has held numerous local, regional and national titles.

When not riding or tending to the family, CJ writes the horsey stories she would have liked to read.
