Vernon L. Grose Says DEATH IS NOT FATAL
by BWW News Desk - Mar 24, 2017

Vernon L. Grose's new book, Death is Not Fatal ($19.99, paperback, 9781498472234; $9.99; eBook, 9781498472241) explains to readers that death is the most feared subject in our world today, yet the subject least discussed. From war, accidents, crime, aging, terror, overdose, disease, disaster, or suicide, death still awaits everyone. Since both death and life are constantly being redefined in our changing world, this unique analysis re-examines death as only a change of address, not the end of existence. After a lengthy career with NASA and NTSB involving death related to space and aviation disasters, this leading authority speaks out with an insightful perspective on how death doesn't determine destination but only removes any opportunity to establish it. The author unlocks unconventional thinking revealing how everyone actually experiences not one but two deaths. With the first death (moral), it sets up your ultimate destination, while the second death (physical) marks the end of your life on earth. (more...)

The Boy from Tomorrow Psychic Novels
by BWW News Desk - Jan 28, 2017

Daniel's clairvoyant episodes since childhood defy reason. Nonetheless, he asserts we all possess this ability to various degrees. And tweens and teens may be most receptive. Over the years, ordinary people have shared their stories of foresight with Daniel: foretelling of another's illness, finding another's lost articles, preventing another's demise. Premised on his psychic experiences, Daniel's novels offer a humorous look how dreams and deja vu foretell of personal events in one's future. His thought-provoking vignettes re-examine conventional wisdom from a fresh perspective. In Volume I: Premonitions, psychic silliness rules Middle School. Danny must prove he knew his dream girl, Patti, before they met! But, Patti has her own plan manipulating her class pets to carry out her hidden agenda. Danny must fight to keep Patti honest armed only with a weapon he does not understand: Premonitions! Can a peculiar good luck charm and the mysterious Gemini Promise prove he is indeed Patti's "Boy From Tomorrow"? Imagine the impossibilities! Download your free copy of Volume I: "Premonitions" at my website: www.danielormont.com (more...)
