A Fathers Fight Against Scientology’s Disconnection Policy that Ripped his Family Apart is Now an Illustrated Book

BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. -- Author Brian J. Sheen's new book, "Relentless, Rescuing My Daughter from Scientology, an Illustrated Story," (ASIN B091P673ZX) is the struggle of a father and newly pronounced grandfather, attempting to get state and federal officials to preserve the sanctity of his family from the Church of Scientology's "horrific acts" that ripped his family apart and allegedly violated his human rights, was recently released, Quan Publications announced. The book is now available on Amazon in paperback and on Kindle

Brian Sheen has always been a devoted father who has cherished his children and shared his love and success with them. He encouraged them to follow their hearts and live a life of freedom. Nothing had prepared him, for the devastating shock, when he received a phone call from his Scientologist daughter, that the Church of Scientology demanded his daughter to never speak or see him again, unless he agreed to pay them hundreds of thousands of dollars and place himself under their full control.

Why? Because her non-Scientologist father had been declared an enemy of her Church, for reasons they refused to disclose to him. If his daughter were to violate their disconnection order, she would also be labeled an enemy, and forced to disconnect from her Scientologist husband, mother, and friends and lose what was most probably, her last opportunity to become a mother. Extremely upset and protesting furiously, she was forced to obey.

This book acts as a warning to any existing or prospective new Scientologist, to recognize what Judge John Breckenridge shared about the Church of Scientology: "In addition to violating and abusing its own members civil rights, the organization has harassed and abused those persons not in the church whom it perceives as enemies. The organization is clearly schizophrenic and paranoid, and this bizarre combination seems to be a reflection of its founder L. Ron Hubbard. The evidence portrays a man who's been virtually a pathological liar when it comes to his history, background and achievements." (*See Note 1.)

Money, power, and control of their members life is at the core of how Scientology functions, which Sheen shares with compelling illustrations. He shows how Scientology convinces members to spend thousands of hours to implant Hubbard's insane alien attachment hallucinations into their minds to disassociate them from reality while expecting they will become superhuman.

"Relentless," acts as a warning to any existing or prospective new Scientologist, to recognize the trap of how Scientology imprints them with their demented beliefs and why Hubbard's processes create severe mental dysfunction and dangerous disassociated states. Readers will learn how Scientology's distorted view of human existence causes them to blame the alleged multiple rape victims of celebrity Scientologist Danny Masterson to accuse the victims, not Masterson, of committing a crime, because they reported their alleged rapes to the police!

They say a picture is worth a thousand words and seeing the visuals of how celebrity Scientologists like Tom Cruise, John Travolta, Elisabeth Moss and Greta Van Susteren have been hypnotized to support Scientology's family disconnections, attacks on critics, and Hubbard's fraudulent representations, is shocking.

Readers will feel the emotional impact of the author through the gripping illustrations that share his journey through Scientology and his relentless struggle to reconnect with his daughter and meet his new grandson.

A leading authority on Scientology, Mike Rinder, Emmy Winner for Co-Producing "Scientology and The Aftermath" calls this book, "Powerful. Righteous. He will never be silenced and will ultimately prevail."

"Great. Gripping. Devastating. Remarkable," shared Tony Ortega, Proprietor of The Underground Bunker Blog.

INTO THE FORGOTTEN FOREST – Werewolves and Vampires and Magic, Oh My!

GREENFIELD, Mass. -- River J. Hopkins, bestselling author of "Sometime After Midnight: A Collection of Poetry & Short Stories," now presents a world - much like our own - with hidden depths, in "Into the Forgotten Forest." It's a place rife with magic, curses, an ancient, brewing evil, and a prophecy that rests on the shoulders of a young woman and her twin brother.

Hopkins became disabled in 2014. For years, she bounced around from apartment to apartment, and for a while, motel to motel. Despite the obstacles in her way, she conquered them and got back to doing what she loved; writing.

Some readers of her first book-an ode to overcoming depression in fiction and verse-have said that her words helped them to start vanquishing their own inner demons.

About the creation of the fictional town of Birch Hollow, Hopkins said, "Being a writer of fantasy is kind of like always having one foot in Wonderland."

From a young age, River J. Hopkins was entranced with storytelling. The first few poems in "Sometime After Midnight" were written when she was still in high school, and most of her stories have parts inspired by her own life. However, "Into the Forgotten Forest" will be her debut full-length novel. As the first book in "The Outcrossed Series," this is only the beginning of what promises to be an ever-expanding, fantastical universe containing several series' that are already in the works.

Paralympic Medalist and Gulf War Vet Launches Business Leadership Book

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Paralympic Games Silver Medalist, Persian Gulf War veteran and TEDx Motivational Speaker John Register marks 26 years since he embraced a "new normal" - becoming an amputee following a misstep over a hurdle while training for the Olympic Games - in a new business leadership development book set to launch this coming Sunday, May 17, on Amazon. The launch comes just a day before Register serves remotely in a keynote experience at the Opening Ceremony of the inaugural Virtual Valor Games Southeast.

Register discovered how to "amputate his fear of disability" and founded the U.S. Olympic Committee Military Sport Program in the early 2000s. He launches the book as business leaders return to work with their staff amid stressful circumstances surrounding the Coronavirus pandemic, hoping to get their workplaces back up and running.

In "Ten Power Stories to Impact Any Leader: Journal Your Way to Leadership Success" Register encourages business leaders to capture and journal their own stories to motivate their teams, and meanwhile, to improve organizations leading to economic results and future success. Register guides these executives and middle managers to inspire others and change lives in their organizational culture, as they develop leadership insights to spark self-reflection and to challenge personal thinking, while boosting the leadership toolkit to grow teams, organizations and professional competence.

"In my international travels, I have found consistency when speaking with leaders," Register said. "Many leaders search for stories from outside sources to inspire their teams. Yet, they rarely consider the powerful stories within themselves. It is the personal stories that I find inspires teams more profoundly with greater impact."

About the Author:

Register swam, played baseball and football in his youth, and later discovered track and field, where he became a four-time All-American on scholarship at the University of Arkansas. He served in the U.S. army for six years afterward-including in operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm and in active-duty participation in the U.S. Army World Class Athlete Program-where he won nine gold medals in the Armed Services Competition and two World Military Championships. Register participated in two U.S. Olympic trials in two hurdles distances and hoped to make the 1996 U.S. Olympic Team. But one misstep over a hurdle on May 17, 1994, changed his life forever. Register hyperextended his knee and severed the popliteal artery. Surgical reconstruction proved futile as gangrene set in, resulting in amputation of his left leg.

Following a long road to recovery, Register started swimming and made the U.S. Paralympic Team in 1996. Eventually, he returned to track and field, where he won a silver medal in the long jump-setting an American record-and sprinted to fifth in the 100 meters and 200 meters. Now Register motivates CEOs, business leaders, athletes, youth, veterans, and first responders as an inspirational speaker, trainer, coach and keynote presenting his "Hurdling Adversity" speech, asking business professionals to "amputate their fear and embrace their new normal."

Life-preserving tax tips, quips and advice series, book one from Jeffrey Schneider, is now available in a Kindle Edition

STUART, Fla. -- SFS Tax Problem Solutions Press announces the release of the eBook and Kindle Edition of "Now What? I Got a Tax Notice from the IRS. Help!" (B079XWL8P9) by Jeffrey Schneider. "Now What?" is also available in paperback (ISBN: 978-0692997154) and will be published in an audiobook version in June 2018.

Reading these life-preserving tax tips with the stress-reducing facts shared in a down to earth style will help to reduce the intimidation, fear and the unknown when it comes to the IRS. In "Now What? I Got A Tax Notice From The IRS. Help!" Jeff defines and deconstructs the scary and confusing letters in a fashion that mixes attention to detail with humor and an intricate clarification of what is what in the world of the IRS.

Using the information presented in this book as tools of navigation, floatation, and even resuscitation can help you to better understand the legitimate letters and notices as well as letters from the IRS private debt collectors and the scammers that have no relation whatsoever to the Internal Revenue Service.

Schneider explains:
* How getting notices should not be as life-threatening as you may think.
* There is life, sanity, and even money after receiving a notice.
* You have choices, and you do have some control. The IRS is not always correct!
* Even if you owe more than you can pay, there are other options.

As filing deadlines come to a close and many choose the online route, Schneider states in the book: "An online tax program is only as good as the information the person enters into it and the understanding of what is being asked by the program." He goes on to explain that "Online tax programs do not get to know their clients." This can be very dangerous if the person does not know what they can or cannot add, deduct or for that matter, remember.

Jeffrey Schneider, EA, CTRS, NTPI Fellow has the knowledge and expertise to help you reach a favorable outcome with the IRS. He is the head honcho at SFS Tax & Accounting Services as well as the Enrolled Agent and Certified Tax Resolution Specialist for SFS Tax Problem Solutions. Schneider was recently appointed to the Internal Revenue Service Advisory Council (IRSAC).

Chapter titles in both the Kindle and Paperback edition include:
* Let the buyer beware of credentials and the people they buy into.
* What can a tax professional do for you that an online program can't?
* The Role of the Taxpayer, The Representative, and the IRS
* The protection and fundamental rights you have with the IRS
* The best steps to take in order to avoid an audit.
* Getting a love letter from the Internal Revenue Service
* I got a Tax Notice. You can't run or hide, so now what?
* How do I pay the IRS what I don't have?
* How do you get the IRS off your back‚ temporarily?
* I'm innocent, I tell you. I didn't do it.
* Having a tax debt that isn't yours.
* Can you really start over and get a second chance?
* Private Collectors and other problems outside of the IRS.

According to Schneider, "Most taxpayers do not realize that they have the right to be represented when it comes to dealing with the IRS. Do not deal with the IRS alone. You do not have to go it alone, and you do not need a lawyer. This is a major misconception from many that find themselves in deep waters with the IRS."

Online Marketing and Customer Acquisition Experts Publish Book, ‘How to Acquire Your First Million Customers’

DENVER, Colo. -- Digital marketing veterans Ken McDonald and Chris Newton have written and published "How to Acquire Your First Million Customers," a book about growing online businesses through a variety of customer acquisition and online marketing techniques. The book is available this week as a free download on Amazon to celebrate the launch.

The free download period ends on April 14, 2017, at which point the book will be available for purchase.

"We wrote this book because we've seen a lot of success in growing online businesses to 10 million users or more, and people kept asking us how to do it," said Ken McDonald, Co-author. "It was important to us to write the book in a way that was informative, but also, approachable and easy to understand. Anyone can read and learn from this book, regardless of where you are in your career, or what type of business you are involved in."

Ken and Chris are no strangers to growing online businesses. Years ago, they worked together at a photo industry startup company, growing the user base from a few thousand customers to over 12 million. Ken has seen similar successes at other online businesses, including at TeamSnap where he is currently Chief Growth Officer. Chris has helped lead dramatic digital revenue growth at large hospitality companies in recent years, including Hilton and Marriott International.

"How to Acquire Your First Million Customers" begins by explaining (in layman's terms) how to set a business up for success, and how to define and measure growth. It then explores a variety of tactics and channels used for driving customer growth: marketing strategy, digital marketing, social media marketing, SEO, PPC, online partnerships, video and content strategies, influencer marketing, paid advertising, AB testing, offline marketing, and more. The back half of the book explains how to retain new customers, and how to scale a business for growth.

The book also references several common tools that many businesses will find helpful, including Facebook, Google Analytics, YouTube, Hootsuite, Moz, Crazy Egg, MouseStats, Optimizely, Buzzsumo, Mattermark, Alexa, Radian 6, Commission Junction, Share a Sale, AWIN, and others.

Brand New Novel Challenges Stereotypes by Featuring a Muslim Heroine

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- At the peak of a highly controversial election year, a new thriller for young-adults has recently been published featuring a teenaged Muslim girl as the protagonist. "The Storyteller and the Terrorist in Our Newsfeeds," by Amina Derbi, is about the rise and fall of seventeen-year-old Najmah Qamar, a passionate storyteller who ends up living through her worst fears as her tales come to life.

It is the first book in "The Storyteller Series," written by Amina Derbi, which will grab readers by the soul and shake them until they feel the words written not just into their minds, but carved into their bones like the initials of a loved one into a tree trunk.

Najmah Qamar is famous among her friends for always telling stories while baby-sitting, at family gatherings, or just hanging out on a Saturday night. After making a YouTube channel for her stories, the videos go viral and Najmah's fame begins to sky-rocket along with her self-confidence and popularity as people from all across the U.S. and even abroad start sharing them on social media.

However, to Najmah's horror, her stories start coming to life and people start dying in her northern Virginia town and surrounding areas. The media coverage surrounding these events becomes obsessive as the murders become linked with the YouTube sensation and some news outlets even refer to her stories as the "terrorist tall tales."

Friendships are tested as trust falters along the lines of race, gender, and religion when Najmah gets blamed for the homicides. However, the stories are available to thousands of people from a variety of different backgrounds who have viewed, liked, or followed Najmah on social media. The real terrorist could be anyone in her newsfeed, even someone she knows well. As Najmah tries to discover who the mastermind is, her own life becomes threatened when she comes closer to unveiling a deep dark secret which has been hidden for decades right under the nose of the nation's capital.

When asked why she started writing "The Storyteller Series," Derbi replied, "Najmah is the sort of protagonist I wish I had a chance to read about when I was in high school and I know her story will break barriers and contribute to the very pressing conversations many readers are having about diversity right now."

In addition to being hooked by the suspenseful plot, readers will also find themselves rooting for Najmah as she tries to stay alive while proving her innocence, stopping the murders, and attempting to maintain her friendships. This story, set in the suburbs of northern Virginia, runs about 59,700 words and is somewhat similar in tone to Stieg Larsson's "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" and Orhan Pamuk's "Snow."

Here is a link to the book's website with more information regarding Derbi's mission as an author, the series, and how readers can dive into its digital pages today at .
