Doug Bolton, the founder of the blog, Signs of Hope, which is at, has written a new book, “Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life.” It reaches out the many military and veterans who may be battling anxiety, fear, depression, addictions, rejections, and the many other usual suspects. There are 22 military connected suicides every day. That is almost one every hour. Doug wants to help stop those statistics.  


This is a new social network just for veterans. I joined it and made instant friendships with veterans who want to talk about what I want to talk about. Please check it out. You will be glad you did.


We have just added a fantastic product for people who are suffering from PTSD. I have looked at the video myself. It is a little long, but it is very valuable. Go to  to see for yourself. It will change your life if you suffer from PTSD. 


There are far too many veterans that were in harm’s way and they aren’t thinking too much about their future.

They are struggling with depression, anxiety, fear, PTSD, TBI, war wounds.

The sad statistic is that 22 of those veterans put themselves in harm’s way and are ended their lives every day!

These heroes deserve much better. They went into harm’s way to protect others. Now we need to protect them.

For those veterans that may be struggling, we feel your pain. We hope the best for you. Never give up!

There is a 24/7 number to call for help if you need it.


I want to announce a new giveaway starting the first of January. I will be giving away free copies of my first book, Signs of Hope: Ways to Survive in an Unfriendly World. 

An autographed copy will be given out to certain subscribers by selected different areas to pick and their email address. The first giveaway will go to the 10th subscriber, starting now.

This should be fun, and one person in each giveaway will walk away with a free book that reaches out to those who have lost hope.


You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

Social Networking Can Change Your Future in Writing

Facebook is an Outstanding way for Authors to get Known.

Social networking wasn’t very will known as few as five years ago, as far as authors using it to promote their books.

Now there are thousands of authors using this approach to reaching out to readers.

My Space, Twitter, You Tube, Friendster, Linkedin, etc, have become an important part of an author’s publicity kit.

On Facebook you can show videos, pictures, images, audio, and media, that will give the “friends,” plenty of information  on the author’s book.

On Twitter, you reach millions of people with one push of a key.  You can also promote your book there, but many use it more for social contact, and then “lure,” the contacts into their websites, or onto Facebook.

If you can build each of your Facebook, Twitter, Blog subscribers, My Space lists to over 2,000, you will do very well when your book finally comes out.

Having these many “followers” on each of these avenues, will also impress agents and publishers.

If you haven’t started working with these promotional techniques, I strongly suggest you look into each of these channels and see if they are for you.


There are six more days left on the latest book give away, of the book, Moments This Good: The Softer Side of Alzheimer’s, Written by Bonnie Nester. Bonnie wrote about her mother Ruth.

Here is a review about the book:

“Nester offers the reader a path to gentle acceptance, and even moments of playfulness and joy-and always, always models profound love and respect for her mother.”

                                                                                                        Ellen Waterson

                                                                                           Author of the award-winning memoir, Then There was No Mountain and I am Madagascar.

Bonnie has many examples for caregivers on how to be loving, and understanding at the same time.

I know the need for that as I have a 92 year old mother that battles dementia.

I highly recommend her book, and Bonnie has autographed it along with a personal note to the reader.
