YOUNG MISTER WUGIDGEM DISCOUNT PROGRAM, SLAVES ON HORSEBACK-EPISODE 2, AND A PRAYER

Young Mister Wugidgem Book e-book for 99 cents

Since “shelter in place”, social distancing, and wearing masks began, my wife and I have managed well by going out for regular exercise, walking, and/or running in our neighborhood. We missed not being able to do this at our regular sites of nearby beaches and lagoons. We got excited when we heard the announcement beaches and lagoons would be opening with the same safety regulations. Opening day arrived, and we drove to the beach clad in masks, sunglasses, and hats. When we walked down the ramp, we were glad there were two roped-in paths, one down to the beach and the other up to the top, with about 20 feet of cement ramp in between, separating them. The beach was only moderately populated, socially distanced, and moving and but most people didn’t have masks on. I’m a runner, and I know our breathing, sweat, and wake spreads at least fifteen feet. We walked for 32 minutes, doing our best to keep a safe distance away from others. It was a stressful experience, and we haven’t gone back to the beach. Please join me in praying that all people come to realize masks protect them from others and others from them if they are infected.

Today I’m featuring my Young Adult Magical Reality Novel, Young Mister Wugidgem. Here is the link to a review:

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like Nelson DeMille . . .

Reviewed in the United States on February 26, 2019

A riveting thriller that I happened to read just after finishing Nelson DeMille’s THE CUBAN AFFAIR.

Chapman’s novel has it all — international intrigue; colorful, well-rendered characters; romance; suspense; the frenetic, edgy Manhattan-Greenwich scene, leavened with enough Bay Area — Stanford, spirituality, food, wine and coastal castles — to keep it fun throughout.

If you can’t wait to find out what happens, the e-book is discounted to $4.99 from the list price of $9.99. Here is the link:

TEEN FREEDOM-MAGICAL REALITY FANTASY-PLANNED DECEMBER, 2020 PUBLICATION

When “shelter in place” began, I started writing book eight of Adventures with Mr. Wugidgem, Teen Freedom. The major hero, James Wugidgem is in a bad place. His volatile temper is at an all-time low flash point. He abandoned his magical training. His sister, Sally pushes him to seek help from Louise, a veteran golden light magician. In this overwhelming time of the Covid-19 rampage, you might benefit from the same lessons James and Sally learned. For factual information on the meditation and affirmations process follow this link:

Teen Freedom is fiction, but the concepts have helped me. I hope it will be published by December, 2020. Here is an excerpt:

“What did you do to stop the anger?” James asked.

“The same thing you did two years ago but aren’t doing now,” Louise replied.

James sighed. “You mean meditations and affirmations.”

“Yep. But I hear you. I still have nightmares about the Kelly battle, although probably not as bad as yours. I get that meditations and affirmations take time and patience and become a “have-to” that you don’t want to do.”

James felt frustrated, not angry. “What do you suggest?”

Louise smiled. “As we used to say in my day, K-I-S-S, which means keep-it-simple-stupid. Resume doing your meditations. Do Orenda’s short-cut to get centered and just a few affirmations out loud after that. You’ll be done in five minutes.”

“Which affirmations?”

“The most important ones. First, ‘I love doing my affirmations and I repeat them regularly.’ Visualize yourself actually doing the affirmations. Second, ‘Affirmations work to improve my life.’ Again, visualize you are happy, because doing the affirmations does improve your life. Third, ‘I enjoy managing my anger, and I dispel it easily.’ Then visualize the anger shooting out of the top of your head. Do this twice a day. Before long, it will become a good habit again and you can add back in whatever affirmations you feel you need. It worked for me. I believe it will for you.”

James nodded his head and felt a glimmer of hope. “It just might,” he said.

“Let’s do a trial run right now,” Louise said. She looked at Sally. “Joining us?” she asked.

“Yep. I had forgotten about Orenda’s short cut.”

“Good. Sit on the bench and close your eyes. Breathe naturally. Focus primarily on listening to your breathing, here and now. Listen also the birds chirping, feel the gentle breeze caress your face, and whatever else your present senses bring you.”

She was silent for several moments. “Feel your feet on the ground. Relax them. Now feel the connection between your feet and the ground. Keep listening to your relaxed, natural breathing.”

She paused again. “Become aware of any pain in your body. Recognize it as pain. Do not judge it; it just is. Let it go and return to your breathing.”

This time, Louise was quiet slightly longer. Finally, she said, “Now you are centered. Let’s repeat the three affirmations together.”

When they finished, James and Sally opened their eyes and saw bright smiles on each other’s faces. Louise was also smiling. “I’d say you guys got it.”

“Yep,” said James. “I felt my pent-up anger shoot straight out the top of my head.”

Sally said, “Doing Orenda’s centering method sure makes it easier for me to visualize the reality of the affirmations and believe they do improve my life.”
