Honors and Accolades
"Congratulations on your TopShelf Book Awards 2020 nomination! Thank you for submitting the Golden Cord of Arram in the TopShelf Book Awards 2020. As part of our recent promotion a Discovery Listing was created for your book in Featured Discoveries. It will remain on the website for the next year."
The Booklife Prize Critics Report nominated Three Proofs That God Exists. It was published in Publishers Weekly's BookLife supplement.
"This word-heavy cross between a memoir and a theological exploration preaches as much as it educates. Addressing...a dire need to resolve a common unanswered question — does God exist? — every chapter zig-zags through a maze of celestial discussions, leading to a transcendental conclusion ... Discover evidence that God may exist in this illuminating journey to the heart of humanity."

Reviews: Golden Cord of Arram

"Overall, I rate this book a perfect 4 out of 4 stars. The plot was compelling and fast-paced. The book also struck home with its commentary on society. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading about government conspiracies and corruption ... it depicts a future that might come to be a reality; if that type of speculation is unnerving, this is not the book for you. However, this is both a terrifying yet fascinating read that I highly recommend." [see more]

“Despite the novel’s familiar genre trappings, it’s rather ambitious in its themes, and its mix of con-spiracy and crime fiction makes for a generally entertaining and occasionally thought-provoking escape. A stylish story in which investigators aren’t afraid to get in too deep." [see more]
Kirkus Reviews
"The Golden Cord of Arram is the first book in a trilogy by Walt Runkis. The unique concept and multiple twists and turns made it difficult for me to put the book down, as I never knew what would happen next. The novel was told in the third-person narrative, and it switched back and forth between several different characters, including some of the antagonists. The book ended with a cliffhanger that left me itching to get my hands on the second book in the series [see more]".
"Golden Cord of Arram is a riveting story with a tantalizing end, making the reader want the next installment in the series. The story is one of hope against seemingly impossible odds and terrifying truths, how the human spirit canít be suppressed. For readers who enjoy speculative fiction with a heavy science basis and metaphysical elements, Walt Runkisís novel will satisfy." [see more]

Reviews: Three Proofs That God Exists

"This very approachable book explores miracles and metaphysics through vignettes told from the authorís life. The author feels that anyone who seeks spiritual enlightenment will find it and offers his story as a means of demonstrating his belief in action, using his curiosity and scientific bent to share his experiences in a forthright manner. " [see more]
The Book Review Directory

“Near-death experiences, ancient religions, and everyday miracles add up to overwhelming evidence of God’s existence, according to this ardent philosophical memoir … spiritual disquisition that sets murky mystical effusions against a gripping testimonial.” [see more]
Kirkus Reviews
"This book will appeal to those looking for an honest biography that blends spiritual and professional growth, offering both for readers to discover and learn from. Rich in Hindu, Buddhist, and Christian terms, the book offers a valuable starting place for piquing readersí curiosity and introducing them to the concept of God-realized spirituality. The author is very open about his own shortcomings, struggles, and doubts, providing a very personal legacy that encourages readers to seek something more than material fulfillment in their lives. Four out of Five Stars”

Saving Our World
The only hope we have of changing the world is to change the minds of the people who inhabit it. Those who are doing the most damage are people who find it easy to ignore the spiritual dimension. If the spiritual dimension is presented to them in a language that is exciting and easy to understand, it may be possible to convince them to act from love, compassion, and integrity, instead of ignorance wrought by hate, avarice, and political expediency. They may see through the evil of autocratic power and wealth that crowns ignorant beings. Ignorance is a sickness that is ravaging our planet. Love, truth, and harmlessness are the medicine we need to facilitate global healing.
Reader Feedback
“I am about a third of the way through the Golden Cord of Arram and I am hooked. I am not sure if I mentioned it but I have read thousands of science fiction novels in my life and this one is very, very good. I will reserve final judgement until I am finished with it but so far I am loving it!”

— Ned, Burlington, MA
“It’s a page-turner that sucks you in like a novel should, then you turn a page and hear music. Great job! Thank you.”

— Richard P, Falls Church, VA
"It took me four evenings to finish reading the book. I was entertained, intrigued, amazed, and most importantly to me, it brought back a long forgotten joy for me...reading. I'd for-gotten how much I enjoy a good book. I plan to read your book again, soon. I always pick up things I missed or gain a greater understanding by rereading something. I'll also take the time to look up words that were unfamiliar to me; that helps."

— Kenny S, Florida
"I declare, I can hardly tear myself away. At one point I was needing to take a necessary room break, and wound up walking like a penguin.

"Do you have a publisher yet? I'd like to purchase three signed copies: [gifts for family members]."
