Book Description:

Like everything worthwhile in this world, the title of “dad” isn’t given—it’s earned.

Society hasn’t done a great job preparing men to raise daughters. That’s a shame, as daughters have a deep, often unacknowledged need for their fathers to take an active role in their growth.

In Claire’s Dad, author and father Shad Arnold offers an engaging look at the difference a father can make in his little girl’s life as she grows into a mature, responsible, and self-assured young woman. Using his own experiences as a touchstone, Arnold explores the principles and standards a father can model for his daughter.

The author is donating a portion of the sales of this book to aid children around the world via the Novitas Foundation.

Our currently unsettling political environment fails to address urgent issues. This trend, unless reversed, will lead us to an impoverished future. Technology can either help all to thrive, or deprive most of their livelihoods.

Despite low unemployment, more than one in eight Americans lived in poverty in 2017.  Workers’ wages remain stagnant as the wealthiest prosper. Today’s best paying jobs are in technology companies that produce their products with far fewer workers than did yesterday’s factories.

In as few as ten years advances in artificial intelligence and robotics could eliminate jobs for all but the most highly trained. Now, once bustling factory towns, produce little besides poverty and opioid addiction. What will their future hold?

Our economic system fails to serve hard-working people whose anguish is muffled by a distracting Washington circus. How did this happen? Can we avoid calamity and restore the values that built our republic?

We Can Fix It: Reclaiming the American Dreamexamines the idea that the United States is founded on a vision of opportunities for all ambitious enough to pursue them. Much has changed since the days when land was readily available to farm and men could easily engage in their trades. In the early 1900s, Theodore Roosevelt and those who followed him stood up against monopolies and promoted workers’ concerns.

During the middle decades of the twentieth century, strong unions and high progressive taxes helped build a sturdy middle class. Today that middle class is endangered as the top 20 percent of Americans own nearly 90 percent of American wealth. Some economists predict that already extreme income inequality will be exacerbated by the the tax law passed in December 2017. Others predict that such an unequal economy cannot sustain itself. V. O. Diedlaff’s short book provides an overview of the problems facing Americans in the near future and offers possible solutions.

The eBook is currently free from Apple iBooks, Barnes & Noble, and others. The introductory priced paperback edition is available at Amazon. The Kindle edition is available for pre-order before its summer release.

“A strong, self-accomplished woman who has traveled the world and now lives in paradise dives down the rabbit hole of her abusive past to set her demons free.”

We all have baggage that we carry around. This baggage may come from ingrained beliefs about oneself or past traumatic experiences. No matter where our baggage comes from or why it’s there, our past experiences tend to show their presence when least expected or wanted. The good thing is that we can all let that baggage go so it does not affect us in our everyday lives.

Carla talks about how her belief system was ingrained at an early age and how traumatic experiences solidified those beliefs. Throughout her story you’ll see how her decisions were affected by those demons rising when she least expected and the resulting impacts. It is also a realization of the inner strength that kept her going, the process of setting those beliefs free, and the will to live a life she deserved.

Follow her path from abuse and trauma to a life living in paradise. This is a story of freedom, of laughter, of loving, of shame, of healing, and of becoming brave enough to be vulnerable. This story will resonate with many people, allowing them to see there is a light at the end of the tunnel and true happiness waiting just around the corner.
