The Ancient Deceptions ~ Uncovering the Oldest Tricks in ‘The Book’

A fascinating exploration of the deceptions that have been plaguing the human race since the very beginning. From the back panel:

Lies…

When we believe them, they may as well be true. When we discover the truth, deception loses its power.

The Ancient Deceptions helps you uncover the lies that have been around since the first humans believed them and shows you how to keep from falling for the oldest tricks in The Book.

TWM is Growing!

GrowingAs the world of independent publishing expands, so has Two Worlds Media. Within the last few months we’ve added two new authors and, presently, we have three books in production. It appears we are on a growth curve.

At the start, the goal of TWM was to make a place for the work that Jody and I were doing. Having a “web presence” is just part of the game of indie publishing. What we didn’t anticipate was there were folks among our friends and acquaintances that had something to say and didn’t really know how to get it said. When they found out that we had taken the leap into self-publishing, they thought out loud how they might do something similar. I found myself saying something like, “I can help you with that!”

Suddenly, I was a publisher…well, not exactly. I became a coach and servant as I walked these aspiring authors through the process of setting up their own publishing effort. I formatted their manuscript into book form; helped them design a cover; prepared their work to be converted into an eBook and opened up their publishing accounts for them. Finally, I got their work on Amazon, and other distributions points including Two Worlds Media. Most writers find all that overwhelming, and I suppose it is. It was for me at first. But, having done if a few times, I could help them get past that obstacle. So, it is my privilege to help authors get their thoughts out where their audience can benefit from them.

“How much do you charge?” they asked. I told them I didn’t. They said, “Well, I want to give you something,” My answer has become well rehearsed: “Nothing is expected. Anything is appreciated.” Not much of a business model, is it? Particularly when I find certain “vanity presses” out there that will “help” writers by charging $500 with packages up into the thousands.

You’ll notice that even though titles at Two Worlds Media have a cover price, more than a few are available to those with financial limitations for a donation or even for the cost of shipping, That is to freely make available what God has given us instead of doing “business as usual.” Of course, there are books on the site that have a set cover price, too. It’s up to our authors.

Two Worlds Media has become a marketplace for Independent “word-carvers.” Think of it as a consignment shop for local artists. When you buy a book or audio download, your money or donation usually goes directly to the writer. That’s why we don’t have a “cart” for your purchases. We want any funds that come for a particular title to go to the writer and not pass through a “middle man.” Two Worlds Media doesn’t “take a percentage.” Does that mean that what I do is free? Sometimes. It depends on the ability and inclination of the artist. Most times, though, authors try to express their appreciation for what I’ve done in one way or another. As we say around here, “Nothing is expected. Anything is appreciated.”

I wonder what the Father has in store for the coming year? Stay tuned! Should be exciting!

We’ve Added Bio Pages

book-treeBrowsing the dim back corner
Of a musty antique shop
Opened an old book of poetry
Angels flew out from the pages
I caught the whiff of a soul
The ink seemed fresh as today
Was that voices whispering?
The tree of the paper still grows.
 ~Terri Guillemets.

Two Worlds Media is constantly adding new authors to our little band of independents! In order to introduce you to them, we’ve added some pages with photos and a little background about each. Our goal here at 2WM is to help you discover those hidden gems that you won’t find anywhere else. What we’ve learned since we started the site is that it is not the title; maybe not even the subject matter, that attracts your attention, but the writer. Do you want to get to know more about a person you know or may have heard of? Has their journey piqued your interest or reminded you of your own pilgrimage? Our authors have left you a road into their heart. They invite you to share what they have learned. Point at the “Meet Our Authors” tab above.
