Thomas Anderson

Cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies have been a huge interest and the interest is growing all the time. This book is for beginners and is not only about Bitcoin, but rather about twenty very different cryptocurrencies and crypto systems, which you see listed below. The first part of the book explains briefly the terminology and usage of cryptocurrencies, and talks about getting rich with these assets – the cryptoassets. I guide you through the jungle of wallets, mining, investing and give some hints and ideas for setting up a cryptocurrency-based business. It is important to note that these cryptoassets, which all are based on the blockchain (or the loopchain) technology are very different and they have different goals. Ethereum, for instance, is a true platform for decentralized apps (applications) and it can have a true impact on our economical world. Then SALT, for example, is a business platform for the lending and borrowing of money. Ripple plans to be a true innovation (and it already is) for the financial institutions and so. In the cryptocurrency world, there are many niches which are still unconquered. If you manage to find a true cryptoasset, which is just getting popular, you may have found your fast lane to riches.

I write because I like the sound of my fingers on the keys. In addition, I believe strongly in the message I share and have a passion to make it palatable for those who would normally never read this genre. Humor and relational/authentic conversation are my weapons of choice.

Lynn Hallbrooks


I co-wrote the Call Sign: Wrecking Crew series, the first two have been labeled Political Thriller by Amazon. The third is a novella that fits more into a Family Drama genre but is based on the first two books. I wrote a NonFiction book, Helpful Household Hints for the Harried Human which could be great for anyone looking for tips on cleaning and organizing.

Nancy Fairbrother


Hi Shrimpers, I’m the author of a self-help e-book called “Who Are You? What Are You Doing Here? Where Are You Going? Discover Your Life Purpose, Fuel Your Inner Fire, and Light Up Your Life.” A really long title offering an unconventional way to discover your life purpose in 1-2 hours using Chaldean numerology (easy to learn) and offering a little-known process that wipes away emotional issues instantly. I am a retired psychotherapist and used these processes in my practice with quicker and more effective results than any others I am aware of, and that’s saying a lot.

Part of my purpose as a writer is to de-mystify ancient occult knowledge. My book goes into that in some detail, showing how science and spirit are emerging as two sides of the same coin; same information, different languages. We are missing out on a huge repository of practical knowledge that is needed in these changing times, simply because it looks scary. I hope to allay the fears associated with this goldmine of information.

Roger McEwan


‘I’ve experienced all the different roles you have to play when there’s nobody else around: a parent, a dad, a father, a stand-in mum, a confidant, always a butler or maid, a teacher and, most crucially, a friend.’ In this enlightening but also very practical book, Roger McEwan shares the lessons he’s learned from years as a solo dad. It is not, he insists, a self-help book. But amidst the rich, always fascinating, often hilarious experiences of his times with his two children are dozens and dozens of useful pieces of advice for parents – from developing a great relationship with your ex (if you can) to letting the children pick the clothes they want to wear, teaching them to cook, and acknowledging that changing a toilet roll is too complex for anyone under the age of eighteen to understand.

Barbara Ann Mojica is a retired educator who has spent forty years teaching in the fields of elementary and special education as well as being a principal and special education administrator. Currently, she writes biweekly historical pieces under the banner “Passages” for The Columbia Insider, a Columbia County, NY news magazine, while writing children’s books for her award-winning series Little Miss HISTORY Travels to. Ever wonder about life in the Ice Age? Little Miss HISTORY travels back in time to LA BREA TAR PITS & MUSEUM in her eighth adventure of the award-winning “Little Miss HISTORY Travels to” children’s book series. Springs of liquid petroleum and a great lake of pitch, filled with exploding bubbles, once dotted the landscape of modern Los Angeles. At La Brea scientists discovered fossils of plants and animals like mammoths, sloths, and saber-tooth tigers that lived there thousands of years ago. The George C. Page Museum contains a glass-enclosed laboratory nicknamed the “Fish Bowl” where visitors can see scientists at work cleaning and categorizing current fossil discoveries. Visitors will discover wonders as they meander through the Pleistocene gardens, view an Ice Age film, and gaze down into the pits – but Be careful! Watch out for those tar seeps.

I am a retired educator and historian who is committed to the objective of making learning about historical people and places both fun and educational.

Around the World in 575 Songs : Traditional music from all the world’s countries VOL 1 – Europe, VOL 2 – Africa, VOL 3 – Asia & Oceania, VOL 4 – Americas I’m the author of a newly published non-fiction book in four volumes. In these volumes I take on the unique challenge of writing about the music and culture of every country in the world. I spent over four years gathering traditional music from countries large and small, from Kazakhstan to Kiribati, listening to what the artists had to say and researching their cultures, then weaving the music in with information, stories, and reflections about each country. The work is aimed at anyone with a passion for exploring other cultures. As a bonus, readers can listen to all 575 featured songs on the website that accompanies the project. Each volume contains an introductory section, and then one chapter for each country. Over the four volumes there are 200 self-contained chapters.
