You must reach for the sky. . .
. . . before you can touch it.
I was chatting the other day with a friend of mine and he
said something that caught my attention, he said my readers want to know more
about me, they want to know who BawB is. So I walked away from that
conversation wondering who I am, really, and all I could come up with was that
I’m a nobody that took some time to share his spiritual beliefs and inspiration
with the world, and then I remembered my favorite saying that I have chosen to
make my “Mantra” everybody that is a somebody started out as a nobody.
That’s right, I am a nobody today, I am one with the world,
a being that is akin to all other beings, I breathe, I smile, therefore I am.
But, now I am different than all the other wonderful nobody’s in the world
because I have done something that might make me a somebody one day. I am a
published author, by no means am I “like” the great published authors of the
world, but I followed my dreams and I chose to try my best at something I was
comfortable doing.
The more I think about it, the more I recognize all the somebody’s
out there, all of my friends, all of their friends and all of their children’s
friends, they are all somebody’s as yet unrecognized. How many lifetimes have
we ambled our paths, wondering who we are, has anybody ever asked you about
you? Have you ever had the pleasure of introducing yourself as the best you
that the world has ever seen? Well, try it one day, believe in yourself that
much and see how it feels to be a somebody. Take a moment in the next day or
two to answer this question; who am I? And see who you come up with. What do
you do? What would you like to do? What makes you happy and have you enjoyed it
As for me, well let me introduce myself again, but this time
as a somebody that nobody recognizes … Yet! I am BoB aka BawB, I am a writer, I
have spent most of this lifetime seeking the easiest path I could find to
happiness. I found it, it was right under my feet for the entire time, I just
had to believe I was happy being me. I believe in life, and I feel like I am a
better person inside because I share the wonders of living, I have no worries
when it comes to sharing a smile and I have a million left because I AM happy
being me.
Look up today and see the sky, then reach with all your
Every cloud is a dream of yours, make it real and hold on

The Last Places on Earth by Gary Mancuso Book Feature

TLPoE CoverTitle: The Last Places on Earth

Author: Gary Mancuso

Publisher: Great Lands Publishing

Pages: 375

Genre: Travelogue/Essays

Format: Hardcopy/Ebook

Gary Mancuso has seen how fast the world’s biological and cultural diversity is being obliterated by rapid globalization. In 2005, He saw the earth reaching a major turning point, when the last remnants of primal humanity and nature would soon be gone. So, in a life-changing gamble, he set off on a six-year journey to see the earth’s remaining wildernesses.

This intensely personal account of Gary’s journey includes feasting with New Guinea’s former cannibals, hunting with Pygmies in the Congo Basin, and attending a Madagascan highland death ritual with an exhumed corpse as the guest of honor.

Gary paid a price for his journey: lost his wife to divorce, half his net worth to financial malfeasance, and a dear friend to suicide. He fell sick several times, got electrocuted, and struggled with the inevitable disorientation borne of long rootlessness. But he overcame each hurdle and even found romance in some unlikely places. By dumb luck, some smart luck, and an instinct for improvisation, he pressed on and somehow staggered home.

The Last Places on Earth: Journeys in Our Disappearing World is a timely and powerful reminder that the wonderment and mystery that we humans naively assumed would always be there is dying fast.

For More Information


Gary Mancuso yearned to travel ever since he was a boy. Then, the summer before his senior year in high school, he left his family home in Ohio and drove to California. Arriving in Los Angeles with four dollars in his pocket, he slept on the beach for a spell until he got his footing. When he wasn’t off wandering somewhere, he studied economics, communications, and political science and got a master’s degree in International Relations from the University of Southern California. Before setting off on the journey that became the subject of this book, Gary headed business development in the trading room of a large regional bank. Along with his passion for travel, he is an avid trekker, swimmer, scuba diver, environmentalist, and private pilot.

Toe Up to 10K 1

Title: Toe Up to 10K

Author: Steven Fujita

Publisher: BookBaby

Pages: 168

Genre: Self-Help

Format: Ebook

In June 2012, Steven Fujita went to the emergency room, and was diagnosed with meningitis. After four days of improvement, he was scheduled to be discharged when his condition worsened dramatically. His blood pressure, body temperature and sodium levels all became dangerously low. He started to lose consciousness. He was rushed to the Intensive Care Unit. He had suffered spinal cord damage at the T4 level. Upon regaining full consciousness, Fujita could not speak, eat, breathe independently, control bodily functions, nor move his legs.

“Once we understand what we have to go through, become resolved to see it through, and know we will survive, we feel our ordeal is not so bad,” Fujita writes. In this book, he takes the reader on a journey of recovery from a spinal cord injury. It is not only a journey of determination and hard work, but of positive attitude, of drawing inspiration, of gratitude towards those around him: his family, his friends, co-workers, and medical professionals.

The Real Benefit of Social Media

Like many people, I joined Facebook to keep up with current friends, and to re-establish ties with old friends.  I joined Twitter for my “more real time” updates.  Alas, I didn’t have much to say, and I was pretty inactive, even when it came time to promote my books.

Back then, Facebook didn’t have community pages, and Twitter, in its infancy, was used to post whimsical tweets, such as “I am now sitting in front of the tv.”  When my current book, Toe Up to 10K was released, I found it easier to get involved because it was so much easier to “syndicate” posts, i.e, what I posted to my blog could easily post to Twitter and Facebook at the same time.

As I re-acclimated myself back into social media, however, things had changed.  Facebook now had community pages for causes, and such, and Twitter was basically scooping traditional media regarding breaking news.

But I learned the real power of social media is in creating a world community.  On Facebook, when someone has taken ill, or is facing some other obstacle, a “page” is created so that person’s friends can be updated.  On Twitter, I follow people who share inspirational and motivational tweets (in addition to the whimsical and promotion of entertainment mediums, such as books, movies, music, photos).

With a click of the button, I can “like” someone’s page, or “follow” someone’s tweets.  I don’t have to personally know the person.  Upon that action, we get updates from that person, and we can comment, reply or share that post with others.  With these posts we can be inspired or inspire other, be motivated, or motivate others, receive support, or support others.  And what’s cool about this?  Many times, it is strangers inspiring, motivating, and supporting each other.

Steven Fujita was born in Los Angeles and raised in Torrance, California. He attended college in Washington, D.C., and currently lives in Long Beach, California.

Listen to Steven Fujita’s interview on the Book Club with John Austin, which aired November 2, 2010, about his novella, Sword of the Undead, a re-telling of Bram Stoker’s vampire novel, Dracula.

His other book, $10 a Day Towards $1,000,000, is available on Kindle. This book promotes the idea of using time and savings to build wealth.

His new book, Toe Up to 10K, was released in September 2014. This book chronicles his recovery from spinal cord injury he sustained in 2012.

Are You Ready For Change?
Read. Reminisce. Receive. Restore.

Ever dated someone and felt the need to take drastic measures to preserve your feelings? 

Yeah, me too!  You want to give more of you, show more of yourself, and open up a little more.  But, you’re afraid!  You’re afraid that something so sweet could become so bitter.  So you caution yourself…  See, the beauty in Robot Love is it doesn’t have to end!  So, take your time and be mindful of your emotions.  But, keep in mind that, it’s OK for one Robot to love, and miss another.

Have you ever received a call from someone and felt the need to go into IMMEDIATE Prayer?

You think, “Lord, should I answer this call?”  Sometimes, you have to push the call-end button.  Quite frankly, I find myself doing it more often.  It’s not because I don’t want to be of service, but it’s hard to help someone who becomes rebellious against assistance.  So, help if you can.  But, know that it’s OK to let him/her go so you can grow.

Remember when you were a kid and had imaginary talks with yourself about growing up?

Yeah me too!  I can still hear my mother saying, “You better stay a child as long as you can.”  Momma told me there would be days when I wish I were still a kid.  And you know what?  “She ain’t ever lied!”  Despite my age, I still need her help.  I never anticipated facing so many challenges as an adult.  From me to you…Just be careful with what you wish.

The Love Below is an empowering, self-help guide for overcoming life-changing situations. This book will also provide practical tools to help reflect on the past by offering essential steps to move toward a healthy future.  Shereese Battle is a certified and credentialed Life Coach, Spiritual Advisor, and Therapist.  Shereese is publisher of Robot Love HeartWrites Publishing ( She can be contacted
