“This year Halloween fell on a weekend. Me and Geto Boys are trick-or-treatin’...” Remember these “profound” lyrics from Bushwick Bill? Word. I sort of thought you might. Well anyway, guess what dear Reader? Your favorite Travelers have all returned for this immensely intense sequel to the internationally successful Part IV; The Mystery of the Thick Red Socks. Here is a spoiler alert: Patience is back! Passion is back! Desire is back! Gifted is back! And “SURPRISE! SURPRISE! SURPRISE!” as Gomer Pyle would say. The very first Traveler whom I introduced you to, in Part I – The Greatest Touch, has returned. That is correct, my friend. The Ving Rhames lookalike, the incomparable Imagination is in the building! YES! And you will also be blessed by surprise cameo appearances from a few other Traveler “celebrity lookalike” heavyweights who touched your life throughout the prophetic pages of this life-changing 7-Part Series! So if Suspense-Thriller is indeed your preferred genre, then what you are about to encounter between the front cover and this back cover of my latest book – The Traveler’s Touch Saga: Invasion of the Fallen Angels – is a nail-biting, heart-pounding, “Haunted House Rollercoaster Ride,” metaphorically speaking, that will miraculously motivate you to touch lives wherever your travels take you, with the “healing touch of hope” from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ via the Holy Spirit. With that being said, if God is indeed IN you, then after reading this Inspirational Self-Help Chapbook I exhort you, my fellow Christian Traveler, to share the blissful blessings of God by reaching out and touching somebody’s hand, and make this world a better place...if you can.

“To be effective, a training program must be realistic. Firefighters today want to know the realities of what they will face once they are on the job. This is why we have adopted The Station-Ready Rookie as a required part of every recruit school in our state. This excellent book is easy to read and gives new recruits a glimpse beyond the technical aspects of firefighting. The authors have done a great job preparing new firefighters to become part of our fire service family.” —Allan Rice, Executive Director, Alabama Fire College & Personnel Standards Commission While fire academies teach the fundamentals and technical skills of firefighting, “life as a rookie” is an area that is mostly overlooked. Three fire service veterans wrote The Station-Ready Rookie to help new firefighters know and understand what will be expected of them during their first assignment to a fire station and throughout their probationary period.

This book is a step by step tutorial taking you through the hiring process. "This book is a map though that jungle of a world out there we call hiring, with some recipes for some great snacks along the way. Not only will you be able to find your way through the maze, but you will be satisfied when you're at your journey's end. Henry takes you thru that process, step by step, and shows you the way with solid examples and illustrations, making each chapter very clear in terms of what must be done, the order in which it should be done and even consequences when we don't follow the road map (or the recipe for that snack along the way)." -From the Foreword by John Sacerdote, President National Association of Personnel Services
