Psyche-Soul-Ology by David Roberts Book Blitz – Win a $25 Amazon Gift Card!



Psyche Soul OlogyTitle:
Psyche-Soul-Ology
Author: David Roberts
Publisher: iUniverse
Pages: 202
Genre: Psychology
Format: Ebook

Purchase at AMAZON

Psyche-Soul-ology: An Inspirational Approach to Appreciating and Understanding Troubled Kids is a companion text to At the Mercy of Externals: Righting Wrongs and Protecting Kids, 2nd Edition. Dr. Roberts presents a spiritually based application of his theories and the Roberts FLAGS Model detailed in his first book. His use of the term Psyche-Soul-ology focuses on the importance of addressing both the minds and souls of troubled kids. Of utmost importance is the need to look beyond the obvious external behaviors and problems of every kid, making an effort to see who they truly are relative to their unique potential for redirecting their lives. By looking into each kid it is possible to discover their uniqueness and encourage them to understand who they are intended to be, rather than who they are becoming. Dr. Roberts stresses the importance of complicating factors serving as obstacles to the progress of low income, disadvantaged kids. He focuses heavily on professional ethics and the need for both extreme compassion and full competence when working with troubled kids and their families. Both of these books are vital for parents and professionals if we are to fight against social injustices associated with poverty and other complicating factors.

amazon

 

Dr. Roberts, a proud father and grandfather, is also a licensed clinical psychologist, author, and college instructor, trained in California and living now in his home state of Alabama. His education, training experiences and worldview make him unique, and he is recognized as an expert with troubled kids and families.

Interview with Amber Lin, author of Falling for the Pirate – Win a gift card!


Could you please tell us a little about your book?

Thanks for having me at Review from Here! I’m excited to share my new release…

Falling for the Pirate is a sexy historical romance featuring a reformed pirate who’s tempted back to his evil ways by the quest for vengeance. A quest only the heroine can fulfill…

Here’s the blurb:

London, 1820

After the deaths of his parents and a dark, troubled childhood, Captain Nate Bowen vowed he would have his revenge. But he never expected to have the tool of his revenge dropped so neatly into his lap. Juliana Hargate is not only the daughter of his enemy, but is destitute, very much alone – and exquisitely desirable.

And now that Nate has saved her life, she’s at his complete mercy…

Captive. All Juliana wanted was to clear her father’s name. Instead, she’s been struck with amnesia – unable to recall even her name – and imprisoned by a tall, imposing, and entirely unscrupulous pirate. A pirate whose eyes seem to look past her skirts and many petticoats, and whose touch sends delicious ripples of desire through her. With every passing day, she finds herself tempted to give him the very thing he’s determined to take…

You can get Falling for the Pirate at one of the following places:

Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Falling-Pirate-Entangled-Scandalous-Amber-ebook/dp/B00LDQXAPW

Barnes & Noble: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/falling-for-the-pirate-amber-lin/1119885033?ean=9781622667475

iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/falling-for-the-pirate/id894410576?mt=11&uo=4

All Romance: https://www.allromanceebooks.com/product-fallingforthepirate-1560029-155.html

Did something specific happen to prompt you to write this book?

When I first decided to write with Entangled’s historical line, Scandalous, I knew I wanted to write a series around historical bad boys.

And what badder boy was there than a pirate?

The series is called Men of Fortune, a historical term for a pirate, and follows four men who banded together to build an investment company. They used whatever means necessary to build the company—including piracy—but are currently trying to reform back in London. Of course, that doesn’t always work out J

The series kicked off with the novella Letters at Christmas with Hale and Sidony, and continues in Falling for the Pirate with Nate and Juliana. There are two more books planned in the Men of Fortune series.

What are you currently working on?

I’m currently working on the third book in the Men of Fortune series, tentatively titled Pirate in Pursuit. While Falling for the Pirate takes place mostly on land and a docked ship, Pirate in Pursuit is all about high seas adventure.

What do you feel sets this book apart from others in the same genre?

Falling for the Pirate features a hero who started off in the low, working classes—and fell from there. After the murder of his parents, he lived on the streets and actually ended up in prison for a time. He has a dark, somewhat tortured past, which is different from the titled gentleman that are common.

Another way it’s different is a little bit of a spoiler, so I won’t give it away. Suffice it to say the book is very very sexy, and the heroine is naturally curious and courageous.

You know the scenario – you’re stuck on an island. What book would you bring with you and why?

Ouch! That would hurt.

One book that comes to mind is Seducer by Madeline Hunter. It doesn’t have a pirate exactly, but it does have a historical bad boy. Like my hero, he’s got a dark past—and he’s still in its grip. Part of his journey is breaking free of it—and choosing love instead. I’ve read this book many times and highly recommend it!

Is there anything else you would like to share with us?

Yes! Entangled has Falling for the Pirate on sale for its release week: 99 cents instead of the regular $3.99 price, so if you’re interested in reading a tortured, brooding hero and the woman who confronts him, be sure to pick it up this week…

He’ll never forget her–but can he ever forgive her?

England, 1814

When Winifred is rescued from her snow-stranded carriage by the notorious and reclusive Alistair, Marquess of Coventry, she is instantly drawn to him. Jilted by her betrothed and socially ruined by untrue rumors, Winifred is tired of  paying for crimes she didn’t commit and decides to play the seductress London society claims she is. Thinking a night of passion shouldn’t leave any lasting effects, she instead finds her heart marked forever.

Six years later, Alistair is working for the Regent as a spy. A search for Napoleon’s English supporters leads him to the beguiling Winifred, recently widowed with a young son. He hasn’t forgotten how the unconventional beauty warmed his bed, and the heat between them rekindles immediately. The spymaster is determined to uncover all of plucky Winifred’s secrets. Especially the one regarding her son…
