Jesus in Shorts



Ever wondered what Jesus looks like?
For two millennia, artists have sought to answer that question. But according to author and story-teller Laura Padgett, Jesus is as close and evident as the people and events around us. 

In Jesus in Shorts, Padgett tells twenty-five short, poignant and true stories that illustrate the presence of Jesus in everyday life including
•A shot of Novocain in the dentist’s chair
•A classic VW Beetle
•An elf in a homeless shelter
•A family crisis

Jesus is indeed present everywhere—in the large and small events, in our laughter and pain, even in our grief. In a world full of distractions, we are sometimes hard-pressed to take time to see or feel His presence. This could be your opportunity to change that. So find a quiet, cozy spot, and discover again, Jesus.

Elysian Fields (The End Book 1)


Elysian Fields (The End Book 1)


Revelation 6:8 

“And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. 

What if you awakened tomorrow and the world as you knew it had changed? 

The event happened worldwide on October 31 at 5:55 A.M. People got out of bed to find their loved ones or neighbors had fallen in the middle of their morning routines, or never made it out of bed at all. As the body count began to reach staggering numbers the world stood still. It was at the precipice of the growing panic that the world began to come apart. There were no answers. Was it a disease? Was this actually the end as it was written in the bible? No one knew, but one thing was for sure: It had only just begun. 

Frank Pearson had seen the worst the world could offer, and had become a monster to survive it. He had served two tours as a ranger, and two as a delta operator. Yet the ghosts had a habit of following you. No matter how far you ran. They always caught up to you. So when Frank had finally had enough he had shuffled out and came back home. Jacobs Ladder, Texas had always been that to him. It was the small town affair that he liked. It was small enough that when his mom had told her neighbor that her son was coming home, the chief was waiting on him. Harry had held out that gold star and never asked for and answer. Frank had been serving and protecting ever since. 

Felix Cherry had been all about affliction. He had only been a child when he lost the use of his legs to a rare auto-immune disease. He had devoted his life to solving riddles of the universe, and providing the answers that came with them. It had only been a matter of time until he climbed the ladder of leadership at the Center for Disease Control. When the event happened, the powers that be handed him the reins and ran for cover. Felix had always been for adapt and overcome. Yet he wasn’t entirely sure there was an answer to this particular riddle. 

The world was driven for answers. The social media outlets and internet was a buzz with pictures and stories of people who had lost loved ones. So many likes and comments poured in as the day rolled on. Yet there were no answers. The governments of the world had parlayed their differences to find the culprit, but no blame could be found. There was no answer why. The sun slowly set on that fateful Sunday and that was when the true horror really began.

Elysian Fields is a different take on the Zombie apocalypse. This is the story of those that experienced it, and those that came to their aid.

The Game of Thinking



We exist inside a Game of Thinking. We call it the universe, life, reality.
But it is the Game of Thinking, a game not played by us, but by thought.

Thinking is a fact; everything else is theory.
Thought wants us to think. If that was not true, we would be able to stop thinking. But we are not.
Thoughts are like zombies. One on one we can deal with them. When they come in bunches, we go under.
In order for war to stop, people need to do more than lay down their weapons; they need to lay down their thoughts.
Our thinking process runs our lives, yet we do not control it, create it, or guide it. Nor can we switch it off.
For it to be real, freedom has to not be a thought.
By acquiring more thought, thought acquires you. By acquiring less thought, you acquire you.
There is no need to understand black holes or string theory. Those things don’t matter, and they may not even exist. There is, likewise, no need to understand ourselves. The benefits of understanding a fool are minimal, and we are all fools. But there is a need to understand understanding itself, which is the Game of Thinking.
This book is the first of its kind that questions what is never questioned, namely thinking itself.
There are good reasons why it is not questioned, called into doubt, unmasked. One is that it doesn’t make sense to do so. Another is that we are trapped. Other reasons we will get to later. But we will question thinking, from as many angles as possible.
The Game of Thinking has two prequels:
You Think You Think: A Book for the Non-Fragmented Mind, 2018, and
Thinking: A Socially Accepted Form of Insanity, A Book for the Imprisoned Mind, 2018.

The premise of these two minimal-length books is the observable daily experience of unceasing thought activity, an activity over which we evidently have little or no control.
You Think You Think is a study in thinking according to methods from the branch of philosophy called Experiential Philosophy. Philosophers are interested in the topic of thought, if no one else. Yet, thinking is what we do sixteen hours a day. Or, as the study shows, thinking is what is done to us sixteen hours a day.
The thesis of the book is based on the recognition that thought is an activity in human beings that (1) proceeds in a fragmented way and that (2) basically cannot be halted. We cannot opt out of thinking. The conclusion is that this accounts for human suffering, lack of direction, and chaos in daily actions and decisions. This leads to the further conclusion that thinking is not something we do, it is something that is being done in us.
Hence the title, You Think You Think. But do you?
Thinking: A Socially Accepted Form of Insanity, the follow-up study, pointed out that we place such overinflated importance on originality and uniqueness that we are prime candidates for being fooled, by thought, that our creations are indeed unique and original. We are 100% unable to see ourselves in the perspective of 7 billion minds thinking thoughts all day long. To think that anything we come up with is new and original, is astonishingly naive. To think that our particular opinion on any topic is the right one, the smart one, the educated one, is severely delusional.
Hence the title, Thinking: a Socially Accepted Form of Insanity.
In The Game of Thinking, these ideas are developed within the over-arching context of thought as a game that is being played. Not by us, but in us. Games are played to win, but can the Game of Thinking be won?
William James wrote in 1890, “The only thing which psychology has a right to postulate at the outset is the fact of thinking itself.” In 1890 psychology was still philosophy. The science of psychology with its various explanatory models was developed in subsequent decades. James established an inroad, a starting point: the fact of thinking. It is the same point that The Game of Thinking starts from.
Thinking is a fact; everything else is theory.
The reader is advised that this book is written within a return-to-start modality, at the expense of the satisfactory development of pleasing explanations. This book does not teach the results of a new understanding in the area of human cognition; it aims to be that understanding itself. The text is dense and does not encourage racing through it. It pays to read carefully.
The purpose of this book is to acquire less thought, not more.

Matthew Samm - Website of Monsters




TWO FREE GIFTS!

We’re all here to promote our books, the same books we’ve spent HOURS writing and perfecting.

I’ve been there too. I have two novellas for sale on Amazon, ‘Sand Dweller’ and ‘Canal Dweller’, under the pen name ‘Matthew Samm’.

I could slap a link to my book on here (and I will), but I honestly feel that all we indies and indie readers should stick together.

In my quest to support my family through the written word, I’ve bought many courses…probably about $2000 worth. Don’t tell my wife!

In exchange for an email address, I will provide you with a guidebook I have created which summarises all of the important advice and info. You get ALL OF THE WHEAT with NONE OF THE CHAFF!

I wish I’d have had something like this guidebook when I was starting out. It would have saved literally thousands of dollars. That’s why I made the guidebook. It’s HARD writing independently. I know my guidebook will help you AND IT’S COMPLETELY FREE!

Maybe, though, you aren’t a writer. Maybe you enjoy reading and that’s why you’re here.

I’ve got you covered. Subscribe and in a day or two, you’ll get my novella ‘Canal Dweller’ COMPLETELY FREE!

Canal Dweller is currently one of my best-selling books on Amazon…and you get it at no cost, as a thank you. It’s a short horror story about a creature that lives in the rotten canals of Manchester. If you’ve ever heard the story of ‘The Pusher’, maybe you’ll want to hear an alternative hypothesis.

I hope I can speak to you soon. If not, there’s no hard feelings and good luck with all your endeavours. I’m here if I can help in any way.

Thanks

But when he sees a man viciously murdered, David becomes entwined in a secret that’s been killing for years. In the midst of terror, David begins to find himself. Will he survive? And what will be the cost?
Written with Matthew Samm’s trademark pace, ”Canal Dweller’ offers thrills and terror, sure to leave readers cowering; then smiling.

Food Terrorism



I made a HUGE MISTAKE.

As a parent I used to think that all I had to worry about was keeping my kids safe from the outside world. 

Drugs, bullies, perverts, sex — any and everything that could hurt them in any way.
Then I found out the food I was willingly paying for was worse than them all – combined! And it wasn’t even close.

Food Terrorism is your blueprint for understanding:

• the genius (yet evil) ways the food industry uses to keep you sick, fat, confused and, most importantly, BUYING!
• How you can forever protect yourself and your family from their lies and deception 
• How you can easily reverse the damage caused by years of unhealthy eating 
• And literally so much more!

PS…

Remember, when your main motivation is money, you will say or do anything to get it – and step on whoever gets in your way.
