The Vaccine for Racism, Inequality, and Hate Has Arrived in The Form of a New Children’s Book Series

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Author/Educator and Chiropractor based in Santa Monica, Dr. Todd Gewant, today announced the release of his 2nd book in the "What I Wish I Was Told" children's book series, "What I Wish I Was Told: Part 2: A Poetic Guide To Unite Us All" (ISBN: 979-8696235394).

Jane Elliott, renowned American diversity educator, endorsed "What I Wish I Was Told Part II," saying, "This book should be taught three times before college, and become the future bible of unification."

The book helps educators (primarily grades 4-12) and parents use illustrated poetry to promote and encourage dialogue with children around topics such as equality, acceptance, unity, and anti-racism. The included curriculum/activity guide helps young people explore their feelings, experiences, and opinions based on current societal issues of life.

"Poetry is an incredibly powerful tool for learning. Children will be taught how to write poetry and socialize appropriately, through the lenses of creative and free thinking, self-directed learning, and reading/writing comprehension. They will learn so much more of 'what I wish I was told' when I was young," says the author, Dr. Todd Gewant.

Each lesson in the book creates a highly unique platform for children to develop important qualities of self-esteem and an appreciation of diversity in all areas of life.

As stated by Dr. Todd, "We can help our children to become positive, caring, and creative adults through this curriculum."

Dr. Todd has been a frequent guest speaker at schools and social organizations, and has consulted with a variety of education administrators and teachers to develop a robust core curriculum around the true values of diversity.

Both books in the "What I Wish I Was Told" children's book series can be purchased on Dr. Todd's online shop or on Amazon at

Aaron Ozee Considers Eight Figure Acquisition Offer for Regulus Literary Empire

CHICAGO, Ill. -- Aaron Ozee, celebrity author of the bestselling children's book, "Regulus" (ISBN: 978-1387010790), and revered director of the "Regulus" movie, has received an eight-figure acquisition offer from a private investment group for the literary empire constructed around his infamous rat king character.

Ozee started developing the story that became "Regulus" halfway through 2017 while attending the College of DuPage within the first years of his college education and launched what became an international phenomenon with the largest self-publishing house in the world, Lulu Press Inc, that very summer on July 23, 2017. Little did Ozee know what his creation would spawn during the years that followed, but what transpired escalated his work, and his name, into legend.

Once "Regulus" hit bookshelves worldwide, it was only two weeks later that Amazon, being the largest bookseller on Earth, ranked this lauded tale as the #1 New Release for Children's Books. Media across the United States, and soon the world, spoke about Ozee with such high regard as the skies made way for something that only few authors have experienced in their lifetimes.

Original artwork, folk songs, street murals, branded merchandise, sculptures, video games, plush toys, and even face masks for the COVID-19 pandemic were produced by numerous creators and partnered sources in admiration for "Regulus". Ozee sent copies of his marvel of a book to many prominent world leaders such as Justin Trudeau, Angela Merkel, and Emmanuel Macron. To his surprise, Ozee was delighted with personal responses from each congratulating him on what the fruits of his labor meant for the future of youth everywhere.

Ozee has collaborated with prominent restaurant chains and popular consumer brands such as Epic Burger, Jarritos, City Barbecue, Crystal Geyser Spring Water, Eli's Cheesecake, and Lou Malnati's Pizza glorifying the relationship between "Regulus" and his treasure hoard of cheese. Ozee has amassed millions of subscribers and followers on his social media and digital profiles through forming associations with innumerable artistic connoisseurs across the Internet.

Ozee even went as far as to send a physical copy of his cherished fable into space making it the First American Children's Book and First Self-Published Book Sent Into Space. Ozee continued this unorthodox campaign upon sending "Regulus" to several rare locations such as Mt. Everest, Chernobyl, North Korean DMZ, Bermuda Triangle, and the Galapagos Islands.

It was not much long after that Ozee sold the "Regulus" film rights to Bizarros Studio for adaptation into a stop motion animated picture that debuted exclusively on Amazon Prime in March 2020.

Celebrated actors, musicians, influencers, athletes, comedians, motivational speakers, and even political candidates respected in most family households continue to endorse "Regulus" as Ozee aims to make his dreams come true. One uncommon fact is that Ozee is only 24 years old and is on the brink of making history in the realm of the written universe.

"This has to be the proudest moment for my career. The world must understand this is not the end of a long journey but is a beautiful start to something exceptionally special," remarked Ozee during this announcement.

EveryLibrary’s One Book, One Congress Campaign Raises Awareness of Role of Libraries

RIVERSIDE, Ill. -- What if every member of Congress read the same book? And what if that book was about libraries? That's the question that EveryLibrary posed as the basis for their recently launched One Book, One Congress campaign. Every $20 raised by the One Book, One Congress campaign will be used to send a copy of the book "Inspiring Library Stories" to a member of Congress.

To ensure every Senator and Representative receives a copy of "Inspiring Library Stories," EveryLibrary must raise $10,000.

"Inspiring Library Stories" is a collection of 43 true stories shared by library workers, librarians, volunteers, and patrons from around the United States. Each story reveals the importance of libraries in American society. The book also includes five essays that further explore the value of libraries in the digital age.

"The tales told in 'Inspiring Library Stories' are moving, inspiring and illustrative of the role of libraries in our communities," said John Chrastka, Executive Director of EveryLibrary. "We're sending copies to Congress to put libraries at the forefront of the minds of lawmakers. Every donation makes a difference."

Copies of "Inspiring Library Stories" (ISBN: 973-1732484864) are available for sale through Hinchas Press, a Los Angeles-based micropress that publishes zines, poetry, poetry in translation, and library science non-fiction. Hinchas Press supports social justice initiatives, and advocates for bilingual literacy endeavors, especially along portions of the Americas that are monolingual. 30% of proceeds from "Inspiring Library Stories" sales will be donated to support libraries in the United States.

To make a donation to the One Book, One Congress campaign, visit the EveryLibrary website at:

Phoenix-Area Radio Host Writes Holiday Children’s Books for Charity

PHOENIX, Ariz. -- Local morning radio host Rich Berra of 104.7 KISS FM's Johnjay and Rich Show has authored two holiday children's books with proceeds going to charity. Also heard on 93.7 KRQ FM in Tucson and in markets across the country through iHeart Media, the Johnjay and Rich Show is known for its annual Christmas Wish program, which grants holiday wishes to children and families in need.

The sale of these holiday books have generated nearly $80,000 in donations to the cause through the #LoveUp Foundation, the charity Berra started with his on-air partner Johnjay Van Es.

Berra's first book, "The Tale of Christmas Steve," chronicles the story of a miniature elf named Steve, who reminds readers that sometimes big things really do come in small packages. The sequel, "Christmas Steve Meets Christmas Carol," tells the tale of 6-foot-2 tall elf girl Carol, who is scared to let her talents shine. With a little help from Christmas Steve, Carol finds out what happens when she lets go of fear and starts dreaming out loud. Both stories champion inclusion and equality for all - no matter the outside appearance.

In addition to donating proceeds to the #LoveUp Foundation's Christmas Wish program, Berra has instituted a buy-one, give-one campaign where every book sold will be matched with a second book donated to a child in need. In years past, children's hospitals, foster care programs and Title 1 schools have all been beneficiaries; this year, the author adds Boys & Girls Clubs of the Valley to the list.

"With so many children learning remotely and needing extra educational support due to COVID, we thought what better organization to benefit than Boys & Girls Clubs," said Berra. "Things may feel a bit different this year, but my belief is that the message, the fun and the hope of these books restore a little magic - that's something we all need this holiday season."

The beautifully illustrated hardcover books are both 32 pages long and retail for $17.99. They are available at AJ's and Bashas' stores across Arizona as well as in numerous boutiques.

Nationally Known Dietitian, Nutrition Consultant and Author Offers Readers A Path to Reversing Chronic Inflammation

SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- Jan Tilley, a nationally recognized dietitian specializing in chronic disease management, has just released a third book dedicated to helping those suffering with chronic inflammation. Entitled "Eat Well to Be Well: Living Your Best Life Through the Power of Anti-Inflammatory Food" (ISBN: 978-1626342668), the book summarizes the health risks so many face due to the fact the American diet has become completely unbalanced.

"I wrote this book prior to the COVID pandemic and recognize now how important the contents are as a resource to help people of all ages take practical steps to reduce inflammation. 'Eat Well to Be Well' offers readers a path to improved health by giving step-by-step guidance on how to maximize their health and avoid the compromised health issues associated with chronic inflammation. Those who read this book tell me it has been invaluable in guiding them to make healthy changes in how they eat, exercise, sleep and manage stress," stated Tilley.

As the world continues to navigate a very dangerous pandemic, news outlets throughout the U.S. broadcast story after story that the most at-risk patients are those with underlying conditions. The conditions they are referring to are a result of chronic inflammation which, if not reversed, can lead to diabetes, heart disease, various types of cancer, cognitive decline and a long list of auto-immune diseases.

Sadly, we have become a sedentary society, our stress is paralyzing, and proper sleep has become an on-going battle. Each of these topics are addressed in Tilley's book, both from her personal clinical experience treating patients and research from renown medical experts in these fields. Also included are over 100 of her most popular anti-inflammatory recipes deliciously designed to help readers successfully use food as medicine.

The book is available on, and on Amazon.

Successful Dallas Author and Businesswoman releases the third book in her Advantage Series, designed to help entrepreneurial companies grow exponentially

DALLAS, Texas -- Many employees believe they aren't being paid to think. In "The Thinking Advantage," author Jill Young shares the dynamic algorithm for creating and building a strong company. When everyone at the company is really thinking, miraculous changes can happen!

EOS Implementer(R) Young has spent her career teaching business leaders how to improve their companies' health and performance. This new book, the third in her Advantage Series, presents four simple steps that will encourage bosses to turn up the volume on creative, productive thinking throughout the company, not just in the corner office.

"The Thinking Advantage" releases worldwide on October 30, 2020 and is available wherever books are sold.

New Fine Art Photography Coffee Table Book Features Lafreniere Park

NEW ORLEANS, La. -- The summer of 2020 will have varied meanings for people around the world. For Eugene L. Brill, a nature photojournalist and nonfiction author, it meant inspirational walks around New Orleans' Lafreniere Park. In his newly-released coffee table book, "Summer of 2020: Walks at Lafreniere Park," Brill shares the history and photography of this natural oasis which includes a staggering number of bird species.

The book includes a brief history of New Orleans (including the history of the first settlers, Native Americans, Pirates on the Mississippi, the Flood of 1927, Hurricane Katrina and the Gulf of Mexico Dead Zone). It also highlights the park's rich history and shares images of its many birds and other wildlife. The author tells the story of Attorney General Lafreniere, explains the park's initial concept in 1975 and documents what it's like today through its more than 50 plus wildlife photos.

"The bird life in Lafreniere Park is unsuspectingly spectacular," Brill says. "Usually when there's a 'Bird Sanctuary' sign you may expect to see a few birds. However, the pure multitude of birds in this park is mind-boggling. They live and thrive in perfect harmony with their human neighbors. My desire is to give people a sense, through my photographs, of what it's like to spend time among the birds of Lafreniere Park."

The foreword is written by Andrew Ward, Ph.D., chairman and co-founder HIV Awareness "iKnow" Music Project-East Africa.

"There's an intimacy to Brill's work; one has the sense of peeking into someone else's private family photo album," Ward says.

Brill shares that he hopes his passion for photography, the environment, nature and wildlife are evident throughout the book.

"Feeding my curiosity for history and my interest in photography, I further developed my love of the natural world that has since become the primary focus of my life. My goal is to use photography to bring history to life," Brill says.
