It is not every day a person becomes friends with not one but with two Living Zen Masters of our time.
I can say I have. Master Clifford Stevens and Master Gert Beirer have been dear friends of mine since 2018 and when their paperback of “Find The Seeker: The pathless path to fulfillment and happiness” was released.

I have been privy to learning Buddism and “The Zen Way” from real Masters, but I know it is exciting and humbling at the time! Everyone should read this helpful and easy-to-understand book.
The e-book has just been released and is available on sale on Amazon for $3.99

About The Book and High Praise-Reviews For Find The Seeker!

The book is based on the tried and tested wisdom of two living Masters and enlightened ones throughout the ages as they accompany us on a life-changing inner pilgrimage. Find the Seeker! is a powerful, straight-talking wake-up call to people of all faiths and confessions, holding up a mirror to our worldly existence, suffering, and the intricate workings of the ego.

Immensely uplifting and rewarding, the book serves as a guide, enticing readers with a vision of what we really are, which can only be directly experienced by helping us unfold our true nature and reboot our spiritual search so that we can abide in the one Self. A refreshing inner journey to experience.

In this way, seekers become finders, and we can enjoy the bliss and lightness of Being inherently ours. Please visit Master Cliff Stevens to learn more about the book and him on his Amazon Author page: https://www.amazon.com/Clifford-Stevens/e/B078WVGVXY/.

“Seeker” has garnered extensive High Praise from spiritual teachers:

“A unique, extraordinary and precious work.” – Ihaleakala Lew Pen

“Disarming and worth experiencing.” -John Tarrant

Author News & Reviews: Lyon Literary Services Announces Two of Our Authors Have Been Awarded 5-Star Book Reviews Given By Readers Favorite…


For immediate release:

Author Anne Fifield’s new book receives a warm literary welcome.

Readers’ Favorite announces the review of the Children – Animals book “Princess Caroline’s Adventures” by Anne Fifield, currently available at http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1733171363.

Readers’ Favorite is one of the largest book review and award contest sites on the Internet. They have earned the respect of renowned publishers like Random House, Simon & Schuster, and Harper Collins, and have received the “Best Websites for Authors” and “Honoring Excellence” awards from the Association of Independent Authors. They are also fully accredited by the BBB (A+ rating), which is a rarity among Book Review and Book Award Contest companies.

“Reviewed By Emily-Jane Hills Orford for Readers’ Favorite

Princess Caroline of Basset Hound Kingdom is off on another adventure with the twins, Willow and Daisy. It all starts when they scrounge around in the dark, dirty castle cellars, their own version of a treasure hunt. They find a journal written by Knight Theo Howler, and they set off on a quest to reunite this mysterious knight with his journal.

The journey takes them to the St. Bernard Kingdom, where everything is bigger, and evil is afoot. But the knight is somewhere in this kingdom, and the basset hound royalty won’t leave without finding him. Danger lurks everywhere as even the princess’s life is threatened. Will they find the knight and make everything right again to return to their own Basset Hound Kingdom?

Anne Fifield’s middle-grade novel, Princess Caroline’s Adventures: The Missing Knight, is the fourth book of this series. The plot has everything an adventure-seeking young reader could want in an exciting story where the main characters are basset hounds and St. Bernard’s. The characters are well developed and believable (as all dogs are), and the setting is adequately described.

There’s lots of dialogue to make the plot development easier for the early reader to follow. With a few instances of humor, including the carriage ride driven by the not-so-experienced so-called driver, this is a light and entertaining read mixed with just enough adventure and good against evil conflict. The sepia tone illustrations add to the plot development and help the young reader feel part of the story. Another great read to inspire young readers to love books.”

“Reviewed By Emily-Jane Hills Orford for Readers’ Favorite

“For the Soul: A Collection of Short Stories was written by Barbara Daniels-Dena. Quilts, children, and dogs – what more can life offer? Well, stories, of course. And, where there are quilts, children, and dogs, there’s bound to be lots of stories. Life is full of stories: funny stories, heart-wrenching and heart-warming stories, fiction, and creative nonfiction. Like the author, I recall spending hours rifling through my grandmother’s button box.

There were all kinds of buttons: large, small, brightly colored, shiny, or dull. These buttons were a source of inspiration for stories, learning to count, learning the colors, and just savoring the precious moments spent with my grandmother. Life and those accessories we collect during our lifetime are full of stories. But so are our imaginations, our dreams, and the random thoughts that swirl around in our heads – so many stories to share.

Barbara Daniels-Dena’s book, For the Soul: A Collection of Short Stories, is a marvelous collection of stories the author wrote through the years. Each one is dated and, like the one about the black-turned-white crow with a hidden agenda and a secret message, there is often a footnote of what or who inspired the story.

Each story is complete and succinctly told with great attention to detail, though often sparsely revealed in the author’s clever way of leaving the spaces between the lines loaded with veiled messages. The plots are compelling and the characters well defined, making this collection an enjoyable read: not to be read all at once, but to be savored over time.”

Fresh from garnishing an awarded 5-Star Book Review by Readers Favorite Magazine, Author Roger Stark Announces his new novel is now released and available in e-book on Amazon Kindle titled “They Called Him Marvin: A History of Love, War, and Family”. . .

Written By Author Roger Stark


Since writing this fantastic novel project for over 6+yrs, and after having an encounter with the real Marvin who shared his father’s story with him, Roger was on a quest to bring Marvin’s family story to life as he never had the chance to meet his father. I’ve also read this novel and can tell you the exceptional job Roger did with this book. Now, everyone who may be World War II history buffs or fans of military family life or wartime reads, you don’t have to wait for the paperback release, as it just released in e-book on Amazon Kindle!

And since the e-book released? There has been a lot of news and updates about this new book! First?

It’s that simple.

The book reviews are already coming in for “They Called Him Marvin” on both Amazon and Goodreads. So I wanted to share some so my readers and friends can read first hand HOW AMAZING this new novel is! It has a little something for every type of reader. It is a non-fiction based on real letters between Commander Dean and his wife Connie, Marvin’s mother and father. His dad flew a B-29 bomber plane, so plane buffs will enjoy this book too!

BOOK REVIEWS RECEIVED

Rose City Reader 5.0 out of 5 stars moving WWII history
Reviewed in the United States on June 17, 2021.

They Called Him Marvin is the intimate history of one family caught up the War in the Pacific during WWII. First Lieutenant Dean Sherman was one of some 570 Allied airmen captured by the Japanese. His wife Connie was home in Utah, raising the baby Dean never met.

Roger Stark’s new book tells the story of Dean and Connie Sherman in all its historical context, using their own letters as well as primary source materials. I’m impressed by the research the author put into the book and the way he used the letters and personal story of Dean and Connie to tell the bigger story of the airmen fighting the war in Japan. The book really brings to life the story of the brave men flying B-29 fighters and the harrowing effects the war had on families on both sides.

Dianna N. 5.0 out of 5 stars Vivid descriptions, Real life
Reviewed in the United States on June 19, 2021.

I am reading this story, and am riveted. The author has a way of telling the story that is enjoyable as well as enjoying what the story is about. I’ve felt happy, sad, glad, horrified, and enchanted by the story and by the way it is written. I recommend this book to anyone, as it appeals to several aspects of human nature/real life.


Jillian S.
5.0 out of 5 stars A book that will leave you crying
Reviewed in the United States on June 15, 2021

A book that will leave you crying, with a heart full of both longing and love. A reminder to hold those you love close while you can. The window into a true love story through Connie and Dean’s letters surrounded by the realities of horrendous war both broke my heart and filled it with hope.

Showcasing their joy and love while describing what life inside the war was like, what lead to each war action and how the air battles transpired is no easy feat. However this book tackled them all with an engaging narrative that added levity at just the right moments. A difficult, tragic topic to share with the world and so worth reading!

Now, in more news about Roger and his new e-book release and his book will featured as “The Book of The Day” on The 4th of July at Books Shelf Literary Magazine and a great place for all readers to check out for amazing books of fiction and non-fiction and you’ll see “They Called Him Marvin” highlighted all day!

About The Author

I would describe myself as a reluctant writer. But when a story comes along that demands to be told, you pick up your pen.


Six years ago, I heard the story of a friend’s father in World War II. I was so moved by his telling of the story that I asked if he would allow me to write it. The result is the soon-to-be-published “They Called Him Marvin.” My life has been touched in so many ways by being part of documenting this profound story.


My career as an addiction counselor (CDP) lead me to write “The Waterfall Concept; A Blueprint for Addiction Recovery” and co-author “Reclaiming Your Addicted Brain.”
After my counseling retirement, I decided I wanted to learn more about the craft of writing and started attending classes at Portland, Oregon’s Attic Institute.


I learned that there is an amazing number of great writers in my area and were willing to help others improve their skills. My next project is already underway, a memoir of growing in SW Washington called “Life on a Sorta Farm.
My wife of 49 years, Susan, and I still live in the southwest Washington area. We raised seven children and have eleven grandchildren. We love to travel and see the sites and cultures of the world. I still get on my bicycle whenever I can.
