Book Title: Blues: We Are All Concerned
Author Name: Katucia Moussongo Bitsaka
Release date: August 9, 2017
Genre: Body Mind Spirit, Inspirational
Certainly, if an enemy of your family knows that you have the capability to destroy him, but you are ignorant of it, he will try all ways to keep you in your state of mind. If you are aware of your family influence, your enemy will fight hard to break you emotionally, psychologically, physically and so forth. It is clearly the same if you are a child of God. The Devil will try hard to break you, but let us look to the one who has power over all; the one who made all by himself and for himself with authority over the visible and invisible. Blues is your story. Blues is my story. It is about things we go through in everyday life that upset our existence. We are all concerned and we all go through it. A few aspects of this story are real, but most of it is based on imagination and fiction.
He will definitely stand for you.
May it be a blessing to your precious soul. To God be the glory. Amen.
Katucia Moussongo Bitsaka is a Gabonese student from Vaal University of Technology. In her last year of Masters in Public Relations, one day, she decided to take the road of writing. Blues is the first book published, but probably not the last to come.

HEROISM, HUMILITY, AND HONOR is a chapter book of poems written to encourage those who are serving, have served, and to remember those who have died serving, as well as to thank their families for their sacrifice and dedication to their country. Serving one’s country still requires two simple words, “Thank You;” these words can impact one’s life tremendously. This small collection of poems is a small token of appreciation to say just that, “Thank You.”

Book Title: Outer Domain
Author Name: Terence Thomas
Release date: July 8, 2012
Genre: Science Fiction
A new source of light has been discovered in the night sky and Captain Felix Jenner and a crew of scientists have boarded the USS - Mobius on a mission of discovery. Niles A Barstow, the Science Officer and a group of research personnel were chosen to identify and catalog the phenomenon.
Their first duty was to dock with The USS - Stockton, near the rings of Saturn. The purpose of the docking was to add new equipment that would cut the travel time significantly. Felix and his science officer Barstow were greeted by Paul Stockton, an
old friend from the days at the academy. They reminisced briefly over coffee and then were taken to the bridge for a demonstration. As they sat looking at the view screen, Felix
saw a small ship coming at them on a collision course. Noticing how Felix reacted, Paul quickly assured that the ship would not collide as it stopped dead. Paul then explained how ships were for some time capable of very quick stops…it was the effect of centrifugal force on crew members that was the problem. We have come up with an electronic buffer effect that makes gravitational forces far less consequential.
The urgency of the mission meant that after the coffee and demonstration, they were on their way. The new equipment would also allow them to maneuver through the asteroids just around the corner and with in a few days asteroids were all around them and traveling through was tricky but Felix, with his superior piloting skills, maneuvered them safely through the giant floating rock trail.
For weeks things we perfect and then a series of hull breaches started occurring. No loss of pressure left officer Barstow perplexed and started a number of procedures that were not exactly standard. This followed by visual problems and nightmares experienced by the crewmembers put pressure on the medical staff to come up with a solution. The line to sickbay was beginning to concern officer Barstow who learned that the cause of the problem was increased visual range sensitivity.
Strange things continued to happen and they noticed a yellowish powder covered the outside of the ship so they engaged the services of one of the maintenance robot Plato.
The view screen on the bridge lit up with a huge billowy cloud, so bright you could hardly look at it. Felix asked Barstow how a cloud could maintain its billow continuity and Barstow told the captain that it could not and then something was seen moving out of the cloud. It was some kind of derelict ship just drifting away from the cloud.
The captain gave orders to prepare a shuttle and asked Officer Barstow to join him on the launch bay. It did not take long for them to reach the ship and they found strange creatures encased in some kind of wax. They used the robot hands of the shuttlecraft to
take one of the creatures. According to Barstow, The ship was some kind of warship and the creature, a warrior.
On the operating table, the creature was identified as an Isomorph. A creature that has much of its skeletal structure on the outside of it's body. The captain made the decision to abandon the mission but it was too late…they were discovered and had to make a hasty retreat. Only with the action of the brilliant crew did they have a chance of survival.

Reviews are especially important for self-published authors. Not only do they make your book look more impressive (a large number of reviews means that a lot of people have read your book, so customers are more likely to try it for themselves), but also because Amazon tends to favor books with lots of reviews, putting them in lists and newsletters alongside similar books in each niche.
If you’ve begged friends and family to leave reviews but still find that you don’t have many (or any), take heart. Reviews don’t come easily, but you can encourage them with these tips. Here’s how to get more reviews for your books so you can boost your sales.
Ask people that have reviewed other books in your niche
Find a book in the same niche as yours and look at the reviews for it. You can see the profile of each person who leaves a review by clicking on their name, so do that to see if they include a contact email in their Amazon profile. If they do, send an email offering them a free copy of your book in exchange for an honest review. Repeat the process with other reviewers, but be sure you don’t come across as pestering or annoying, and make sure your book is as good as it can possibly be, or you could end up with negative reviews. Also, paying for customer reviews is against Amazon's terms of service so do not offer to pay for a customer review.
Get a professional editorial book review
These reviews are typically written by avid readers or professionals who frequently review books and are posted on book review websites. Editorial reviews can be expensive, often costing several hundred dollars for one review. However, they usually come with some form of promotion to give the book visibilty as well as the added benefit of giving the author credibility. Editorial reviews can be placed on your Amazon Author Central page under the "editorial book reviews" section as long as credit is given back to the reviewer. They are also often used on the back cover of the book along with the description to encourage readers to buy. Editorial reviews have a powerful marketing effect for promoting your book.
DGT Book Promotions offers two affordable book review services: editorial book reviews and our book review list to help authors get the reviews they need. Find out more about how these services can help you! Click here for more information on our book review service.
Build an email list and ask them to review
Having a list of people who actually want to read your books is priceless. It means that whenever you release a new book, you can just ask them to read it first and put reviews up for you. Of course, just because you have a list doesn’t mean you’ll always get reviews, but having willing readers does increase your chances significantly.
Give your list free copies of your book before it goes live so they can read it, then send them a message as soon as the book is live so they can post their reviews. Get them to leave reviews on Goodreads, too. Goodreads reviews can carry more weight with readers as it’s more of a social platform than a salesy one.
Put a request at the end of every book
Amazon automatically offers its readers a chance to leave a review, but if you’ll add a short request for reviews to the end of your books, it will make it more likely that people will actually follow through. You can also do this with your print books, just make a page at the end of the book that gives details on how people can leave a review.
Never be afraid to ask for reviews. At worst, you’ll get negative feedback which you can use to edit and improve your book, and at best you could get lots of positive reviews that will spur on book sales.
