The Staggering Depths of Blissfulness is a story about love, the loss of innocence and wonder. When Emseeaye, a young man whose life is marked by alternating events of staggering beauty and anguished tragedy, is uprooted from his simple Laotian village to attend college in New York, everything that he believes to be true about life suddenly comes into question. Though his assimilation into Western life leaves him confused and directionless, under the tutelage of a blind man with extraordinary perceptive abilities, Emseeaye learns to harness the power of the "three dominions", hauntingly beautiful sensory experiences that blur the boundaries between reality and dreams. When Emseeaye's obsession with the three dominions threatens to destroy his delicately woven relationship with his girlfriend Melina, he must race to unravel the secrets behind the "three dominions". Succeed, and he will re-discover the joy of a previous life. Fail, and he will forever lose Melina.

JS Kim
Non-Fiction. Inside ‘The Banker’s Secret Plot to Bankrupt the World & How We Can Stop Them!’ exposes the shocking century long secret that bankers don’t want you to know – that they invented our current monetary & banking system specifically to grant themselves the power to silently steal our wealth while simultaneously forcing us to use flimsy money that has no intrinsic value. Central Banks create every single Euro, Yen, Pound, USD, and Yuan as debt, a fact you must understand to grasp the grave immorality of our current banking system. Former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker stated in 2009 that bankers have contributed nothing positive to society but the ATM for the past several decades. Learn how we can work together to free all of humanity from the monstrous beast known as the global banking cartel. Coming Late 2014
