About the Author

Jacqueline Marinaro began her career as a therapist and college educator. Graduate school couldn’t stamp out her love of creative writing, however. Much to the chagrin of her husband, graduate school also only furthered her ability to constantly ask, “how does that make you feel?” Jacqueline lives in Florida with her wonderful husband and sweet little boy, where she enjoys the beach, reading, writing, and of course delving into the feelings of everyone she meets.

Vitaly by Vitaly Magidov @vitalybook – Publicist @BookBuzznet – Blitz by @RABTBookTours

The Misadventures of a Ukrainian Orphan

Memoir, Autobiography

Date Published: March 10, 2022

photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

Be Inspired with This True Story About a Ukrainian Orphan That Did Whatever
He Could to Chase His Dreams – Discover That Even When Life Stacks Its Deck
Against You, You Can Still Reach Your Dreams

There’s nothing better in this life than finding your true self and being
in touch with who you indeed are. But sometimes, life can beat us down and
leave us without the will or power to find ourselves and live as we are
truly meant to be.

In such situations, we have two options: to either let our circumstances
define us or persevere and fight beyond that unbearable state until we reach
where we desire to. Vitaly Magidov chose the latter option. Vitaly’s
touching autobiography highlights the struggles, hardships, accomplishments,
and wins that he went through until he became the proficient man he is
today.

Vitaly was orphaned right after birth when his mother left him at the
hospital, and he ended up living at an orphanage in Ukraine until he was 12
years old. From there, he lived in foster care for six years until he was 18
and ready to face the world head-on. From an early age, Vitaly knew deep
down he was different, but he had no clue, or guidance, to meet his true
self then; also, living in the USSR times had its challenges.

Life was miserable.

Vitaly would live life without thinking about the future and take each day
at face value. He was surrounded by loneliness and tried his best to enjoy
life, but he couldn’t help but question himself.

“Why wasn’t I normal?”

No matter how hard Vitaly tried to conform to what was ‘normal,’ he just
never could. He couldn’t escape the feeling that there was something wrong
with him. From a young age, he was taught the cycle of life — enjoy
your childhood, be good, don’t lie, respect your parents, go to school,
finish school, get a job, start your own family, retire and savor the rest
of your life.

However, he never really knew anyone that lived up to that cycle. Without
anyone to turn or look up to, Vitaly was left to figure everything out
independently.

Struggle, after struggle, he endured it all. Until he finally decided to
question the standard.

This inspiring eye-opener highlights it all, from his childhood mishaps and
challenges to his discoveries and accomplishments.

Do you want to read one of the best, most inspiring real-life
autobiographies out there?

If you’ve answered YES, then read on because you are about to uncover one
of the most moving autobiographies ever written.

 

More precisely, this autobiography:

Narrates the real-life events of Vitaly in the first
person to give you the experience of his touching story and his life in
Ukraine

Provides a comprehensible flow of events from the
beginning to adulthood, making it easy to follow-through

It highlights the parallels between the Ukrainian
culture and different religions and opens your eyes to people’s experiences
in other countries.

Vitaly’s book clear tone and adventurous stories will
keep you glued to the pages.

It is as touching as it is inspiring, and you are sure
to draw out some of the essential life lessons from the book.

 

So, if you are looking for a touching memoir, or if you are feeling
confused about who you are and want some inspiration to find personal
acceptance, or even if you are looking for a good read, behold Vitaly, the
best autobiography. Be inspired and know that it’s not simply about what
life you’re born into; it’s about what you make of it.

 

About the Author

Vitaly Magidov was born in Ukraine. His mother left him in a hospital when
he was a baby. From there, he was taken into an orphanage and then, at 11,
into foster care. Living without parental support was not easy, but he
looked at life as a life of opportunities. At age 18, when he was living on
his own, he was free to pursue his dreams.

Vitaly came to the U.S. with $3 in his pocket. He is now a U.S. citizen and
wants to share his story with the world.

Bubble Trouble by Alejandria Kate – Publicist @AuthorParul – Blitz by @RABTBookTours

 

Children’s Book 

Date Published: April 6, 2022

photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

 

This is the story of two adventurous bears, their protective mama,
mischievous bubbles, and a magical witch. Ignoring their mother’s
wishes, Boo and Butter stray down the path toward Granny
Grumblewitch’s house into a world of bubble-brewed danger. Granny
holds their fate in her gnarled hands . . . will they return to the safety
of their cave?

 Alejandria Kate wrote Bubble Trouble with the hope that Boo and Butter’s story shows children that truly loving parents mean only what is best for them . . . that any boundaries, warnings or admonishments are intended to protect, not to prevent them from having fun. Any deviation from the defined boundaries could result in unhappy consequences. Parents like Mama Bear know what is best, safest — and love them above and beyond anything else.

 

Teaser

 

Butter made a happy growl and clapped his furry paws. I grinned and said, “Mama, bubbles really do bounce. And they giggle, too.”

Practitioner through the Sunlight Alliance Foundation. Alejandria is
passionate about personal development and uplifting others.

She draws inspiration from the beauty – both large and small – that she
observes in the world around her and from the quiet moments connected with
Spirit and her own soul. She believes vulnerability is a strength and an
open heart is a key to inner joy. She believes that through a shift in
perspective beauty can be found within every experience.

Alejandria graduated from the Institute of Children’s Literature, where she
studied writing for children and young adults. In her spare time, she plays
the Native American flute and hikes the walking trails in Southern
California in her pursuit of viewing wildflowers and wild birds.

It is Alejandria’s hope that readers feel comforted and inspired after
reading her books.

Race for What? by JD Mass @JDMass1 – Blitz by @RABTBookTours

A White Man’s Journey & Guide to Healing Racism from Within

Race & Ethnic Relations

Date Published: March 29, 2022

Publisher: R4W INC

Race is currently a hot topic of discussion. Questions being considered are: Does racism still exist? What does equity look like? How do we achieve justice?

Anti-black racism is real. It hasn’t been corrected and it won’t go away on its own. Aboriginal (Black) and Indigenous folks have carried the burden for far too long. It is time for white folks to take the next step and complete the mission.

Race For What? provides stories with a unique perspective from a white man’s experience and his idea for seven steps to healing. JD Mass PsyD, the author, encourages white people to work through the emotional and psychological obstacles in order to repair and heal the harm racism has caused.

JD Mass has been on a lifelong journey to learn why racism was created and what we can look forward to without it. Change is happening. Will it be the superficial change that doesn’t bring forth justice or the transformational healing that is needed? Race For What? provides a vision for the latter.

About the Author

Growing up within a black community, witnessing racism firsthand, activist JD Mass PsyD tells of his successes and missteps in building powerful alliances with melanated people. JD’s parents chose to raise him in the only diverse community in St. Louis where he was able to witness and experience racism and cultural differences. It sparked an inner desire to understand why we created such a world.

JD has always had an entrepreneurial spirit, starting a tennis teaching organization with his college coach. Shortly after graduating with a degree in finance, he played a pivotal role of structuring Nelly’s early business ventures, including Apple Bottoms Jeans and Derrty Entertainment.

JD followed his time with Nelly by joining The African Hebrew Israelites of Jerusalem to learn community building based on health, peace, and sharing.

In 2017 JD achieved his doctorate in Organizational Psychology and became heavily involved in white antiracism groups in Los Angeles and later in St. Louis. This work in anti-racism reflecting on what he learned throughout his journey inspired him to write “Race for What?” A wise thinker and guide, JD dares white folks to stay the course to finally correct the harm of racism and help create a humane world.

This book will not make you comfortable. It will challenge you to dig deeper, think harder, and make room for new possibilities.
