Military Writers Society of America (MWSA) Review of Implications

Implications Final Front Cover

MWSA Review

Author Richard Davidson weaves an intricate mystery in his new book, Implications. The clues in this story are like pieces of dew on a spider’s web that his protagonist Pastor Arthur Blake has to find and pull together. I enjoyed how the author drew in history from the 1920’s and even Al Capone into Blake’s investigation of his present day arson. Lost diamonds, bootlegging, mob murders, infidelity, revenge, all have to fit together just right, so Blake can solve the case he has been assigned, the arson of a local church. If you enjoy mysteries this is a great read. With a truly likable protagonist, complex plots, and a lot of suspects to weed through. A fun read.

For Immediate Release

Contact: radmarinc@yahoo.com

RADMAR Publishing Group announces release of a new Anthology, edited and with an introduction by Richard Davidson. Overcoming: An Anthology by the Writers of OCWW is the first of a new series featuring the writers of Off-Campus Writers’ Workshop, the oldest continuously-operating workshop of its type in the United States.

 

In his introduction to this work, Davidson says, “We grow and learn to be self-sufficient by overcoming obstacles, challenges, and misfortunes as we face whatever life has to offer us. Even as children, when most of us have the support of dedicated family members and guardians, we have to overcome problems of health, learning, and physical skills development. This anthology presents a wide variety of examples of overcoming from approximately forty skilled writers.”

 

Contents Summary: This anthology covers many aspects of overcoming life’s problems, obstacles, and challenging developments. The contributing writers have used fiction, non-fiction, memoir, poetry, historical chronicle, and drama to highlight our continuing need to overcome our problems, rather than dwell on them. The reader will learn from many talented writers the skills needed to respond constructively, energetically, and sometimes humorously to whatever obstacle bars one’s path. Apply their lessons to your own needs and to those of others you cherish.

 

 

This is Davidson’s seventh book and his second self-help title. In this genre, he has also written DECISION TIME! Better Decisions for a Better Life – a guidebook having many adherents in several countries. He has recently completed his Lord’s Prayer Mystery Series, the five volumes of which.are: (I) Lead Us Not into Temptation, (II) Give Us this Day Our Daily Bread, (III) Forgive Us Our Trespasses, (IV) Thy Will Be Done, and (V) Deliver Us from Evil. Many of the other professional and semi-professional writers featured in Overcoming are well known and widely published, while others have only recently launched their scribbling careers. The blend of their skills and viewpoints is refreshing.

 

Overcoming: An Anthology by the Writers of OCWW is available in paperback (ISBN 978-0-9829160-4-9) from amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com and other online vendors. The book can also be ordered from most bookstores in the United States and the United Kingdom. More information is available at the author’s official website, davidsonbookshelf.com.

For Immediate Release

Contact: radmarinc@yahoo.com

 

 

 

RADMAR Publishing Group announces Author Richard Davidson’s new novel, Deliver Us from Evil. This novel is Volume V (and the final volume) in his mystery series based on phrases from the Lord’s Prayer.

 

Davidson continues his fascination with the suitability of each line of the Lord’s Prayer to be a mystery novel title. He emphasizes the fact that he tailors each novel to convey the significance of the original prayer phrase. In Deliver Us from Evil he asks whether some people are inherently evil or good. He says, “We have to live in the midst of many people whom we can only know to a slight degree. Should we be optimistic about them and our relationship with them, or should we always be suspicious of them and on guard against treachery?  My latest novel explores the basic nature of people and their relationships.”

 

Plot Summary: Arthur and Irma’s wedding day has finally arrived, but an unexpected interruption leads to their need to investigate a possible murder committed by someone close to them. With the aid of friends and federal agents Penny and Joe Gonzalez, they follow a series of clues, crisscrossing the United States to learn more about the murder, related subsequent events, and the significance of a rare object brought home by a veteran of the Iraq War. A second murder close to Pastor Arthur Blake’s church involves them in a new investigation, assisting Parkville Police Chief Bobby Andrews. Are these murders and the tracking of that strange object connected? Will marriage deteriorate or improve the relationship between Arthur and Irma? Character flaws in many relationships color the outcome.

This is Davidson’s seventh book and his fifth mystery novel. The five volumes of the Lord’s Prayer Mystery Series are: (I) Lead Us Not into Temptation, (II) Give Us this Day Our Daily Bread, (III) Forgive Us Our Trespasses, (IV) Thy Will Be Done, and (V) Deliver Us from Evil. Davidson has also written the self-help book, DECISION TIME! Better Decisions for a Better Life, and has edited Overcoming: An Anthology by the Writers of OCWW. He is Past President of Off-Campus Writers’ Workshop, the oldest ongoing group of its kind in the U.S. and the founder of the ReadWorthy Books Book Review Blog. Mr. Davidson is a Certified Lay Servant Speaker and a former Lay Leader in the United Methodist Church. He is also an aeronautical and astronautical engineer and a businessman.

 

Deliver Us from Evil is available in paperback (ISBN 978-0-9829160-3-2) from amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com and other online vendors. The book can also be ordered from most bookstores in the United States and the United Kingdom. More information is available at the author’s official website, davidsonbookshelf.com.

When Don’t You Have to Make a Decision?

Image

DECISION TIME! Better Decisions for a Better Life by Richard Davidson teaches you how to tackle all of those continuing subjective decisions that you face every day. Whether they’re as small as setting priorities for your daily appointments or as large as college, finances, or workplace relationships, this book will help you cope, every day.

Where you are in life today is the result of all of the past decisions you have made or which have been made for you in response to the various situations and events that have impacted your life. The decisions that you will make from this point forward will determine the degree to which your future will be positive or negative. DECISION TIME! gives you insight into the subjective decision-making process as applied to both small and large choices you will face. It includes dynamic aspects, cultural effects, and morality as applied to decision-making for individuals, teams, corporations, and societies. DECISION TIME! prepares you to face the continuous impacts of decision situations confidently and without hesitation.

The author says: I’ve really been amazed at the number of times I have been guided by what I wrote in Decision Time! When I find myself in a critically unstable situation and ponder my next step, I suddenly remember that I had written a chapter or a paragraph that dealt with very similar uncertainties. I have also been surprised by the way the characters in my Lord’s Prayer Mystery Series use the Decision Time! principles without my making any conscious effort to have them do so. After a period of familiarization these principles just become a way of life.

The Old Is New

RADMAR, Inc. has been in the creativity business since 1971. Major early efforts combined Audio Visual product manufacturing with equipment to allow you to produce your own program materials and later, through our Media Services Group, RADMAR moved to generate programs and educational materials for you. We started with our Filmaker Filmstrip Maker for in-house production of 35mm filmstrips. Then we added our Dupe-Pro Slide Duplicator for production of slide sets and a Show-Sync Cassette Recorder to let you add a synchronized sound program to your visuals. We got into the film projector business with our Soundstage 50 Sound Slide Projector which was used by organ manufacturers to teach their customers to play the organ. We also manufactured our own Copy Stands and made specialized versions of these for other companies, including Bell & Howell Company and Creative Learning Systems. While film was still the medium of choice, we entered the filmstrip and slide projector industry with our Crusader, Crusader-Plus, and Illustrator Projectors and their accessory systems. These projectors could operate on any power standard around the world or on battery power. We later added Portable Overhead Projectors. As video moved to center stage, we introduced RADMAR 16mm Tele-Cine Projectors to transfer 16mm motion picture films to video. These were distributed by Bell & Howell dealers worldwide. RADMAR’s entry into the Media Services industry came, first by purchasing an Illinois film laboratory, and later by acquiring RCA’s Video Duplication Service. There were many other steps along the way, but RADMAR, Inc. evolved into a post-production house and duplicator/distributor for slides, filmstrips, audio tapes, video tapes, and eventually CD’s and DVD’s. We drop-shipped all of these types of media for clients to field locations all over the world. We also produced our own film and video materials: Carlos Campesino Filmstrips for education and training in international rural developing areas; Hanna-Barbera Educational Filmstrips (duplication and distribution only); and Export Procedures Video Training Materials. We soon realized that our Media Services activities constituted a form of Publishing, so we began to enter that market with books, while we continued to duplicate and distribute other media. Our transition to this site emphasizes the focus of our interests on our publishing activities. Please visit us frequently to see what RADMAR, Inc. is doing.
