God has spoken (Isa 45:21). He who has ears, let him listen (Psa 78:1). God so loved the world (Jhn 3:16a). God sent His only begotten Son to save the world (Jhn 12:47). God’s plan, pleasure and purpose will stand (Isa 14:24) from the foundation of the world all the way to heaven because His mercy endures for ever (Psa 136 whole chapter). This is Bible-based book purposely written to inspire the world that everybody is in heaven because Christ came and died for all (2Cr 5:15). The cross of Christ (Gal 6:14) is central to why everybody is in heaven. Belief matters no matter what. Believe now and have a nice and easy road. Believe not and have a tough and rough road in the lake of fire (Rev 21:8) but will end up in heaven anyway after a spiritual purging, pruning and purifying time in God’s refinery! God is a consuming fire (Hbr 12:29). Salvation by fire (1Cr 3:15). Brimstone (theion and theios) is God’s breath, deity, divinity and power to purge the unbelieving! Believing and unbelieving are in heaven only because of the blood of Christ (1Pe 1:19), the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world (Rev 13:8) and the Savior of the world (1Jo 4:14). God’s justice ends on judgment day. God’s mercy, love, compassion, long suffering, patience and slowness to anger never ever end. God’s will to save all (1Ti 2:3, 4) because God is good to all (Psa 145:9). Christ came to save the world (Jhn 12:47), to save the lost (Luk 19:10) and to save sinners (1Ti 1:15).
“I am 80 years old and have learned to be suspicious of the hype coming from businesses. But that same inner voice that compelled me to write Pleasant Things in Ashes Lie – a factual account of coping with the loss of my house to fire – whispered to me to sign on with Outskirts Press. A miracle got me through my disaster, and a miracle again got my book published.”

They fled their burning home into the night and watched with horror and disbelief the flames eating through the roof over their daughter’s bedroom. Thus began an elderly couple’s struggle to overcome trauma and to rebuild. Braced by the outpouring of good will, they regained composure. But more than good will was needed to deal with such exigencies as insurance matters, temporary shelter, demolition, and reconstruction. With almost no library materials to be had to help, they relied on what they thought to be a sign of hope: only their Bible, miraculously, lay undamaged among all the other books. Was it happenstance or was it a miracle that guided them through the maze of decisions and requisites that faced them? Pleasant Things in Ashes Lie gives a candid account of this elderly couple’s triumph over adversity. It is written with the intent that others – victims of house fires – may glean from this story something to help them also to triumph.

“Every being I had contact with in OP was professional, helpful, and friendly. I tend to worry first then relax later, but my Author’s Rep always made me feel at ease. Publishing a book is a huge project. I’m so grateful to Dana, Rebecca (my other angel) and everyone else who had a hand in getting my book from a manuscript on a laptop to a 6×9 paperback. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”

Thousands of years ago, mankind had a close spiritual relationship with their gods. But when they began seeing the world through wicked eyes – when they stopped worshipping the gods, and lived in fear and distrust – man fell out of favor with the gods. And when the statue of the goddess Bachué was stolen and a life taken, the gods cursed the people. What was once a paradise had become a world of good versus evil, a world that could be unpredictable and cruel. In present-day New York, Ilene has had a humble upbringing in a loving, close-knit family. Life is good and getting better, but the theft of a family heirloom artifact leaves her family shaken. It’s as if a veil of protection has been lifted, leaving the family vulnerable and exposed to life’s miseries. Ilene needs to find answers before the next generation inherits “The Curse”, and the descendants of the Guardians and the World Trekkers must come together to right a wrong that mankind brought upon itself thousands of years earlier.
