FREE, SUNDAY, OCT. 9 AND MONDAY, OCT. 10: “IN THE BEGINNING” INTRO TO SCI-FI THRILLER “HAUNTED… BY THE ROAD NOT TAKEN”

Based on the Kindle September 25 free day success, author Allen Pollens decided to offer two free days this time, especially since it can encompass Columbus Day. “I believe it will be an even bigger hit this time,” shared Pollens.
“How often do you find yourself unhappily committed to a book?” asked Pollens. “I believe that “HAUNTED” would not fall into this category, but I want readers to have a special option… the “IN THE BEGINNING” version… FREE on Sunday, Oct. 9 and again on Columbus Day, Oct 10.”

Here’s a bit of what the story is about…

In spite of years of successful academic achievement, Dr. Harold Treadwell, a PHD psychologist at Philadelphia’s Jess Hawkins University (JHU), has extremely low self-esteem. Memories of a year’s earlier incident plague him and he loses himself in the complexities of a sleep-study research project.

Harold’s proposed research focuses on sufferers of undiagnosed and untreated mysterious pain… mental and physical difficulties that appear without warning and ruin lives. Harold spends five-years designing a sleep-stasis chamber… a necessary apparatus in the proposed study. Finally, he submits a grant application to the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Its approval is in doubt until an unexpected source of support with NIH influence surfaces.

“That much is all in the “IN THE BEGINNING” intro,” explained Pollens, “and, hopefully, is enough to encourage readers to want the full tale.” The intro runs more than 35 pages and more than 7000 words. The Kindle eBook version is normally available for $2.99 at Amazon.com but will be free during Oct. 9 and 10.

Early Past Midnight Beaverton Cloud Lit Sky 09-18-2016

The cloud lit sky after midnight this morning was truly striking. Capturing it photographically was difficult to say the least and I have to admit that the attached is a composite of several shots. The result does however present a fair depiction of what the eye was capable of seeing.

Three Most Powerful Words

I was moved recently by three powerful words. They seemed so powerful to me that I decided to check out whether others were also so struck by these words. The obvious route for researching this today is the Internet. So I Googled “Three Most Powerful Words” and was surprised at what surfaced.

The first site offered, “I Forgive You” which I can understand would seem very powerful but was not what I had in mind.

The second site suggested, “You’re not alone” which is good but also not what I was looking to find.

I then came across a book titled “The Three Most Powerful Words” but the subtitle, “Discovering the Freedom of Releasing the Ones Who Hurt Us,” also suggested something different than what I had in mind.

The fourth site advised, “Just be yourself,” which also was not what I was after. It did add in an off-handed way, “Apart from “I love you”, and maybe “pass the chips” is there any more often spoken, three-word phrase in the English language?” They had it but not with the degree of seriousness I was seeking. Hint… it was not “pass the chips.”

The fifth site offered all of the following in the order I am presenting them:

I’ll Be There

I Miss You

I Respect You / I Trust You

Maybe You’re Right

Please Forgive Me

I Thank You

Count On Me

Let Me Help

Go For It

And finally what I was looking for:

I Love You

I was surprised because these three words mean so much to me. I lost my dear wife, Ellen, about one and half years ago and am still pained by the loss. In going over documents that were left, I come periodically on a note to me that she signed, “I love you, Al.” I am all at once joyful in the remembrance of what we had together and cannot hold back the tears from what I lost.

I hope you similarly have someone in your life who says, “I love you,” and I hope you appreciate this wonderful gift.
