Congratulations to Minnesota author Kevin Kuhn. His novel, Do You Realize, has just won another national award. The book, released in 2017 by Minnesota publisher Beaver’s Pond Press, has won gold in the fantasy/science fiction category of the eLit Awards. The eLit Awards are dedicated to honoring the best e-books published each year for the North American market. His prize is to be featured in www.IndependentPublisher.com and highlighted prominently in the organization’s monthly newsletter, which goes out to more than 20,000 subscribers worldwide, many of whom are agents, buyers, and librarians.
The eLit Award is the 4th national award for Do You Realize? The book has also won recognition in the National Indie Excellence Awards, Book of the Year Awards and Readers' Favorite International Book Awards.
Do You Realize is the story of George, a middle-management, middle-class, middle-aged guy who hates his job and struggles to stay connected to his wife and teenage children. Most guys might end up with a steamy affair and a flashy car for their midlife crises, but George gets a quirky philosophical physics professor named Shiloh. Trapped with this mysterious misfit on his morning commuter train, George is dragged into awkward conversations about love, fear, music, and the meaning of life. Shiloh also asks George to beta-test an app he wrote for the new Apple Watch--and with a free watch included, how could he say no?
When tragedy strikes, throwing George out of his uncomfortable comfort zone, he learns that Shiloh's app lets him journey through alternate versions of his past. As challenges mount in his own reality, George must make a decision that will change him--and possibly the entire multiverse—forever.
In the interest of helping to promote a healthy community, DBSA Tampa Bay (the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance of Tampa Bay) sponsors regular free Mental Health Lectures; and the topic of discussion at the June meeting was how to recover from bipolar illness.
For the June 20 talk, the guest lecturer was Michael Rose, M.A., author of the new book, Bipolar Wellness: How to Recover from Bipolar Illness. Rose is a master’s-level teaching psychologist teaching at several colleges, as well as a board member/administrator at a peer-staffed psychiatric recovery and support facility. He is also a professional life coach specializing in bipolar recovery and a licensed nutrition counselor in Florida, who develops products in the health food industry.
During his talk, Rose shared intimate details about his personal journey from bipolar illness to bipolar wellness, and offered practical advice on the role exercise, organization skills, support groups, addictions, medication, therapy, creativity and self-esteem have played in his recovery. The meeting was held at St. Joseph’s Women’s Hospital in Tampa, and previewed on WFLA Radio and Great 38 on WFLA-TV in Tampa in the morning, and on WMNF 88.5 FM Community Radio in the afternoon.
Twin Cities author Judy McConnell signed copies of her debut novel, Dreamhouse, at the Barnes and Noble Booksellers store in Roseville., Minn on June 16. In Dreamhouse, McConnell writes about events she personally experienced during the feminist movement in the 1960s and 70s as seen through the eyes of Radley Gallagher, a young mother caught up in the challenges of raising two young children. “The story is about how that cultural phenomenon impacted this conventional young family in Deephaven, MN. In some ways, the story parallels my life. I lived in that house in Deephaven,” says McConnell, who goes on to describe Dreamhouse as a stark portrayal of the soul-searching dilemma facing a young wife and mother as she confronts head-on the revolutionary changes of the early seventies.
McConnell's book tour for Dreamhouse kicked off on Feb. 10 at the Walker Library in Minneapolis. On Feb. 21, she appeared at Common Good Books in St. Paul. on Mar. 7 she was at Subtext Bookstore, also in St. Paul; and on Mar. 24 she participated in the Rosemount Writers Festival and Book Fair in Rosemount, Minn.
Articles about the book tour have appeared in the Lakeshore Weekly and MN Sun Sailor. St. Louis Park's City South Magazine is also working on a story to be published soon. For more information, go to the author’s website, www.agreatbook.net.
Unless you or someone you love have been directly affected by mental illness, drug abuse or alcohol addiction, you probably don’t know what’s really involved in recovery; but because it affects so many people, it’s probably time to learn.
As part of its continuing mission to provide resources for men seeking to grow in body, mind and spirit, the Men’s Center of Minneapolis hosted a discussion on recovery the evening of June 19. The guest speaker was Bruce Ario, who has been in recovery since 1979. He shared his story to shed light on recovery in general and more universal terms. Bruce is the author of 2 somewhat autobiographical novels on recovery.
