Umlac's Legacy - a galactic empire science fiction adventure by Jim Meeks-Johnson book promotion

Jade inherits a billion alien monsters and a gigaton of trouble.

When Lt. Jade Mahelona defeats the evil cyborg Umlac, she inherits his interstellar kingdom. Her subjects are two-ton aliens with a culture of physical dominance. She's an outsider, and the alien monsters do not accept her as their ruler. Worse, she can't ignore them or hide from them. According to their custom, if they hunt her down and kill her, they inherit the kingdom. 

Meanwhile, Earth joins another interstellar empire known as the Entanglement, which promises to provide Earth with advanced weapons to fend off an onrushing alien invasion fleet. But the jealous Police Guild slows that process and schemes to turn the rest of the Entanglement against Earth. 

When the only quantum-entangled teleportation link between Earth and the Entanglement is destroyed, Earth faces alien invasion from Umlac's brothers with nothing but human ingenuity to defend itself. 

Jade needs to help Earth, but Jade's fate hangs on the loyalties of Hoargrim, Robeek, and Greangut, three aliens trying to find their way in the new order. They help Jade in her attempt to claim her kingdom, but with an intelligent blob, there's always more to it than meets the eye.

If you love fast-paced adventure on exotic worlds, interstellar political intrigue, and humans struggling with alien culture clash, you must read Umlac's Legacy.

-use the best job survival skills to be employed until you want a change of jobs
-Use the best job search skills to find another good job quickly.

An alien colony vanishes without a trace.

Lt. Jade Mahelona is the redshirt sent to investigate. The only other human on her team is a pedantic professor of xenology with a mysterious past.  

Jade's team encounters an ambush on the way to the colony. Umlac, a sadistic ten-ton cyborg, wants to control the technology that eradicated the colony on Belle Verte, and he incites an interstellar war between two galactic empires to obscure his raid to the planet.  

Anomalies from ancient interstellar travelers riddle Belle Verte—phenomena which Jade and her alien teammates can't explain despite their advanced technology. They need new physics fast.

Jade struggles to survive until she can find a way to fight back. She senses electric fields directly—she can "see" and "hear" things that other people can't—but she will need more than a unique perspective to save Earth. She must take charge of the alien team to bring out the best of every member.

It might already be too late. A long-dormant intelligence with an agenda of its own has awakened.

If you love heart-pounding alien encounters, fantastic technology based on plausible science, and stepping into the unknown with danger lurking around every corner, you'll want to read this hard science fiction space opera adventure.

Proper Exercise Primes Preppers for Disasters by Dan Vale

COVID-19, hurricanes, wildfires, and extended power blackouts are just a few of the many disasters that are becoming more and more common. Maintaining a strong immune system, controlling stress, and sleeping well all will help you and your family members to meet these potential challenges. Proper exercise is the way for your family members to maintain a strong immune system, control your stress, and sleep well.

Has your gym closed? Not to worry. This book will show you how to work out at home safely, cheaply, and effectively. When you work out at home, you will be a good role model for your family members. When they also work out, your family interactions will become calmer. That is always important, and it is especially important during a disaster.

Proper exercise is a win/win activity. During normal times, proper exercise lessens the chances of diseases such as heart attacks, diabetes, and strokes. During disasters, when medical help might not be immediately available, good health is even more important.

I have a bachelor degree in physical education. I won the Mr. Delaware Bodybuilding Contest in 1968 and earned his karate Black Belt in 1973. I have had a lifelong interest in physical fitness. Furthermore, from 2009 to 2017, I wrote 785 articles for the Examiner Online Newspaper. Most of these articles were written in my capacity as the Baltimore Prepper Writer for the Examiner.
Although I have exercised more than most people, scientific studies show that as few as 20 minutes of exercise a day have significant, positive health results. This book will help you to find the right exercise routine for you. Start exercising now and enjoy your “runners’ high,” even if you do exercises other than running.

David becomes the prime suspect in the sacrificial murder of one of his parishioners, Beth Barkley. Lauren Barkley, the murdered girl's sister, wants answers the police cannot give her. She meets David at her sister's funeral and, although intrigued by his suggestion that he has clues pointing to the real reasons for her sister's death, she’s suspicious of his claims that supernatural forces are at work. Lauren also harbors a painful secret tormenting her.

David and Lauren team up with an Auschwitz survivor, ex-Mossad agent, and former Nazi-hunter for the Simon Wiesenthal Center, working for Holocaust survivors to recover millions of dollars in gold, art, and other valuable assets stolen by the Nazis.  They must work together to prevent another worldwide holocaust ignited by a nuclear conflict in the Middle East.

Not only do they face a cunning, devious, and malicious enemy, supernatural forces have been released making their task nearly insurmountable.

If you enjoy thrillers by Joel Rosenberg, Frank Peretti, Ted Dekker, James Byron Huggins, Dan Brown, James Rollins, and James Rubart you’ll enjoy reading The Oldest Enemy.

Would you risk an eternity in hell and losing your immortal soul to protect those you love?

Life sucks when you're a broke, teen, orphan, struggling to raise your sisters in rural Africa. I spent each day worrying about how to find the next meal and I thought my life was hard enough. But then I manifested these freaky magical powers and things got a whole lot more complicated.

Now I can actually breach portals through time and space - even to Heaven and Hell! It seemed like a cool thing to be able to do until a couple of archangels showed up and pretty much insisted I go to Hell to stop a demon Armageddon. I mean, imagine how badly spies who are caught in actual Hell get tortured? I don't even want to think about it.... Now the pressure is on. If I fail, my sisters will die, demons will take over the world and I’ll get trapped in hell for eternity.

If you like kickass female protagonists, emotional highs and lows, magic and dry humour, you'll love this coming of age fantasy, set in Africa, Hell and Heaven.

Fullness - a Memoir by Azure Moyna

Fullness - a Memoir by Azure Moyna

This book took me my whole life to write because it took me a lifetime of living it, a lifetime of mustering up the courage to tell my truth and four more years of writing and editing to bring this book to fruition. This book is quite literally my life's work. 

There's a saying that a writer should write the book they want to read themselves. That is very much how this book came to be. During the years of struggling with binge eating and extreme dieting, I read a number of memoirs on the topic and found that they often glossed over the details of their "food episodes" or they ended with something like "and then I started therapy! The End." I wanted to write a book that really "went there" and shared all the (formerly shameful) details to show a reader what it is really like to struggle with disordered eating. I don't end the book with starting the healing journey, I start with it because I wanted to give readers a window into what that process is really like. 

I wrote this book because there are an estimated 30 million Americans who suffer from an eating disorder and because the most common disordered relationships with food include a binge element. The reason this topic is especially relevant now is because due to the Covid Shelter in Place, more people are reporting weight gain tied to using food to self soothe (termed “Covesity”). Further, common risk factors of full-fledged eating disorders are abuse and unfortunately, emotional, verbal and financial abuse are still not considered as legitimate as physical or sexual abuse in our culture. My goal in sharing my (deeply personal) memoir is to open conversation about abuse and disordered relationships with food and body because these topics have carried such shame in our society. Knowledge, insight, compassion and conversation are the only ways we can dismantle that shame and destigmatize these issues so that real healing can take place for the millions of people who struggle with them.

When you transition from teenager to adult, it can feel like you’re expected to simply know what to do. On the one hand, adulthood is great; you get to decide what kind of life you want to have, and the freedom to pursue it your own way. But reality is tough. When it comes to building relationships, a career, and a financial future, where do you start? What does your “own way” even look like? Without the answers, it’s easy to fall into anxiety, anger, and depression—and lose focus on the big picture you’re trying to build.

With her fifteen years of experience in young-adult-focused therapy and coaching, Jesse Giunta Rafeh now reaches out to a wider audience with this accessible, practical guide to creating an extraordinary adulthood. In Life Launch, Jesse transforms intuition into practice, giving you a map to the questions you should be asking yourself. Unlike other books, she doesn’t tell you what to do--instead, you’ll build the roots of your perspective to unlock the insight you already possess. Combining deep self-reflection work with accountability and structure, you’ll come away with a 360-degree view on the entirety of your adult life--what to do when you’re lost, what kind of future you can envision, and the power you have to create it.

At the peak of summer, Nina is living a fast-paced life in New York City. But when the earth’s gravitational pull activates a gene—making her and a few others capable of magic—she is called to duty in southern Louisiana to lead a coven of witches and restore balance to the world through magic.

By autumn, witches are turning up dead and she has but one choice—defend the coven.

And when she witnesses extraordinary powers beyond those of any known witch, Nina sets out on a magical quest through the dark and sultry swamps, voodoo shops, right-wing churches and alternate planes of consciousness to uncover the source of the dangerous gifts; all while trying to create peace not just within the coven, but with the people who knew her in the life she left behind.

The Bezos Letters - 14 Principles to Grow Your Business Like Amazon by Steve Anderson and Karen Anderson

The Bezos Letters - 14 Principles to Grow Your Business Like Amazon by Steve Anderson and Karen Anderson

A few years ago, I was examining the impact of technology on the insurance industry. I came to realize that the biggest risk a business faces today is not taking enough risk. Because technology continues to develop so rapidly, businesses have a hard time keeping up and too often make the mistake of not embracing change fast enough. 

In researching companies that did not keep up — Kodak, Blackberry, Blockbuster, Sears — as well as those companies known for adapting quickly — Amazon, Google, Facebook, and Netflix something stood out – how they embraced risk-taking.

As I was researching Amazon, I discovered the letters Jeff Bezos wrote to what he calls shareowners starting in 1997. I realized he had hidden in plain sight his secretes to growing Amazon that any business owner can use.

The result of my research is The Bezos Letters. In the book, I deconstruct Jeff Bezos’ 21 years of personal letters to Amazon shareowners through my unique lens of risk, providing readers with a guide on the key takeaways and the 14 growth principles I believe Bezos leveraged in turning a simple online bookstore into a trillion- dollar company in just over two decades. 

The 14 principles are grouped into 4 cycles:

Growth Cycle: Test

Principle 1: Encourage “Successful Failure”
Principle 2: Bet on Big Ideas
Principle 3: Practice Dynamic Invention and Innovation
