YORKTOWN, Va. - Nov. 1 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Anttyr Publishing, a Virginia-based publishing company, announces the release of a new book "The Day I Found Me" (ISBN: 978-0-9790328-1-3). The book centers on a young girl's struggle to escape a life of abuse and unhappiness; it draws the reader in through a well-documented journey that provides a sense of hope and closure.

Caption: The Day I Found MeAuthored by Rose Marie, the book was written from the heart. From a young age, Rose Marie was in and out of foster homes before being sent to live with her grandmother in Virginia. After her grandmother's death, she was returned to her mother who was still unable to handle the demanding needs of a teenage girl.

Eve, the main character in "The Day I Found Me" finds herself in unpleasant situations, time and time again. After living in various foster homes, she ends up at her grandmother's house where an aunt does not welcome her and an uncle is sexually abusive.

After Eve's grandmother dies, she returns to live with her mother where she is raped by her mother's boyfriend, and consequently gives birth to his child. She graduates from high school and leaves home to try to recapture her inner spirit and to develop a renewed sense of self.

"The Day I Found Me" is Rose Marie's second book. The first book, "Just One Wish" is the story of a slave who is on trial for killing her master, and a lawyer who wishes to defend her freedom and see that justice prevails.

Rose Marie is in the process of scheduling book signings and preparing for an upcoming tour. Anttyr Publishing is also accepting manuscripts for works of non-fiction.

For more information on manuscript submission, or to order the book for $14.95, visit: www.AnttyrPublishing.com.

Memoir of Top Chinese Rights Lawyer Published as His Whereabouts Unknown

Author: Broad Press USA
Dateline: Thu, 25 Oct 2007

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “NEW YORK, N.Y. - Oct. 25 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Broad Press USA announced this week the release in English of 'A China More Just' (ISBN: 1-932674-36-5), an autobiographical account by Chinese lawyer and Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Gao Zhisheng. The announcement comes one month after Gao was abducted by the Chinese authorities.”

English Edition of Gao Zhisheng's Book Announced One Month After Disappearance

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Oct. 25 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Broad Press USA announced this week the release in English of "A China More Just" (ISBN: 1-932674-36-5), an autobiographical account by Chinese lawyer and Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Gao Zhisheng. The announcement comes one month after Gao was abducted by the Chinese authorities.

Caption: China More JustPart memoir, part social commentary, part call to action, A China More Just is a penetrating account of contemporary China through the life of one attorney. As the world debates the legacy of the 2008 Beijing Olympics, this book provides a voice-with raw, touching, and witty style-to millions in China rarely heard from in the West. Its selection of writings takes readers from a village in rural China to urban courtrooms, mountainside torture chambers, and the halls of a reluctant government.

"My words in this book are portraying the real China and the truth about China," said Gao, a Christian, in an interview upon the release of the book's Chinese edition in 2006. "It is my hope that those who read my essays and those who know the hardship that surrounds my family and me will not view it as hardship that merely a few individuals are facing. It is actually a window through which one can see the lasting pain of a nation."

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Born and raised in a cave with only the stars to tell time, Gao Zhisheng rose from poverty to become China's most important lawyer. He has courageously sought justice for vulnerable groups such as the poor, the disabled, and the persecuted (including Christians, Falun Gong adherents and fellow activists). Yet Gao's fortitude has drawn the ire of the Chinese Communist Party.

Since 2005, physical threat and police surveillance have been a constant reality for Gao and his family, culminating in his recent abduction. Undeterred, he has responded in the nonviolent tradition of Gandhi by launching nationwide hunger strikes to call for justice and human rights. His undaunted resolve and generous spirit have won the hearts of millions and earned him international recognition and awards.

Gao, currently the subject of an Amnesty International urgent action, remains missing and is thus unavailable for interviews. Instead, the transcript of the above-mentioned phone interview is available upon request as are members of the editorial team.

"Gao was set to join China's political and social elite. But instead of power and prestige, Gao opted to become a human rights lawyer in a nation where respect for human rights and political freedoms are not part of the government's lexicon," said Congressman Tom Lantos (D-CA), Chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

"An impressive and important story. A sobering reminder of the dark underbelly of modern China that we all too frequently forget," said Dr. Kerry Brown, Asia Program Fellow, Chatham House, London.

"Gao Zhisheng is a man who represents China's Rights Defense movement. Their work has brought hope to distressed and poverty-stricken people in China. Reading this collection helps to better understand him and the cause of rights defenders," said Wei Jingsheng, prominent democracy activist who served 18 years in Chinese prisons.

ABOUT BROAD PRESS:

In recent years, we have grown into a primary outlet for Chinese authors wishing to publish works on human rights, democracy and traditional culture.

New Book Explores Racial Boundaries and Builds Cultural Bridges

Author: Crandall, Dostie and Douglass Books, Inc.
Dateline: Wed, 24 Oct 2007

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “PHILADELPHIA, Pa. - Oct. 24 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- What might a well-to-do, middle-aged Caucasian woman have in common with a pregnant, African-American teenager? According to a new book published by Crandall, Dostie and Douglass Books, Inc., and authored by Elizabeth Gordon, plenty. 'Walk with Us: Triplet Boys, Their Teen Parents and Two White Women Who Tagged Along' (ISBN: 978-1-934390-30-6) is a twentieth century tale with a message of hope.”

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. - Oct. 24 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- What might a well-to-do, middle-aged Caucasian woman have in common with a pregnant, African-American teenager? According to a new book published by Crandall, Dostie and Douglass Books, Inc., and authored by Elizabeth Gordon, plenty. "Walk with Us: Triplet Boys, Their Teen Parents and Two White Women Who Tagged Along" (ISBN: 978-1-934390-30-6) is a twentieth century tale with a message of hope.

Caption: Walk with UsAt the center of the story is 15-year old Tahija Ellison, living in the midst of poverty in a north Philadelphia neighborhood. Kathryn and her housemate, Kaki, open their home to Tahija who is soon to be the mother of triplets.

While 16-year old father, Lamarr, would like to provide for his family, choices are limited and the triplets are threatened to be taken into foster custody after their births.

So, for two years they make up a household: Tahija, Kathryn, Kaki, and the triplets, with Lamarr hovering close and ready with a supportive hand.

While few people live in mixed-race households, even fewer have housemates of a different social class. The author demonstrates what it means to nurture relationships despite race and class in the intimate shared space of a row house.

In the day-to-day world, people constantly mix with other races and classes in malls, on the street, on the subway and more. Media portrays politicians shaking hands in multicultural situations, and co-workers who share friendships across race, but what happens when they all go home together?

Gordon brings Tahija's unpretentious, young voice directly to the reader through an appendix: "My Life as I Know It." The appendix is Tahija's self-authored narrative of her experiences. Each chapter opens with an excerpt from this appendix which flows into Gordon's poetic and captivating prose.

Above all, the three triplets steal the show. Kathryn becomes their full-time caretaker while Tahija goes to school. As the group bonds, they find themselves at odds in the midst of their differing cultural and emotional experiences.

A twist at the end recounts an act of material sacrifice seldom seen in today's society and the story ends on a hopeful note.

Reviews are glowing. On Amazon.com, Maureen Mather asserts that "this book is beautifully written, and Ms. Gordon's honesty is so complete that it is sometimes painful to read. This is a true examination of conscience. It is also an examination of the history of race relations in the U.S. and the current state of those relations, not from an observer who visited a ghetto a few times for a story, but from someone who lived it. Make no mistake; there is also much that evokes laughter. Ms. Gordon has a marvelous sense of humor, and she is not afraid to laugh at herself. I consider this book 'a must read' for anyone interested in and concerned about race relations in America. And, that should be everyone, shouldn't it?"

"Walk with Us" is 320 pages and is available in paperback for $19.95. It is also available electronically at: www.cddbooks.com and www.amazon.com and can be ordered from Crandall, Dostie & Douglass Books, Inc. or through local bookstores.

New Book Shares Tips for Raising a Happy and Healthy Shelter-Adopted Cat or Kitten

Author: Logical Expressions, Inc.
Dateline: Sandpoint, Idaho (SANDPOINT, Idaho)  | Wed, 24 Oct 2007

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “SANDPOINT, Idaho -- A new book from Logical Expressions, Inc. aims to help new, adopted-cat owners get off on the right paw. 'Happy Tabby: Develop a Great Relationship with Your Adopted Cat or Kitten' (ISBN: 978-0-9749245-3-3; LCCN-2007906436) tells new owners what they need to know to raise a healthy, happy feline.”



A R T I C L E:

SANDPOINT, Idaho, Oct. 24 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- A new book from Logical Expressions, Inc. aims to help new, adopted-cat owners get off on the right "paw." "Happy Tabby: Develop a Great Relationship with Your Adopted Cat or Kitten" (ISBN: 978-0-9749245-3-3; LCCN-2007906436) tells new owners what they need to know to raise a healthy, happy feline.

"Happy Tabby" combines practical advice with real-life stories. Unlike breed-specific or veterinary books, "Happy Tabby" is tailored to the special needs and issues related to living with a rescued kitten or cat.

Cats are often relinquished to animal shelters because of communication breakdowns - the owner does not understand why the cat is doing what she's doing. But expecting a cat to act in any "human way" is unfair. Once owners understand feline motivations, it is easier to solve problems that arise.

Author, Susan Daffron, is not only a cat owner, but has also worked as a veterinary technician and at animal shelters; she has written a pet-care column since 1998.

"Cats are not little people in furry suits," Daffron said. "This book emphasizes understanding and compassion. Cats may seem mysterious and unpredictable to you, but the truth is that to a cat, everything she does makes sense."

"Happy Tabby" features answers to everyday problems. The book includes tips for what to do when a cat stops using the litter box or scratches the furniture. It also addresses what to do if a cat is having difficulty adjusting to her new home life. Readers also learn how to keep their cat safe from common household and environmental hazards.

Along with advice on grooming and health issues, "Happy Tabby" includes anecdotes about the author's two cats. Readers will never be left feeling alone or led to believe that their cat "is really different."

"Happy Tabby" is $19.95 and is available on Amazon.com or directly from the publisher at: www.HappyTabbyBook.com. The site features cat-care articles and a free "Cat FAQ."

Tumi Publishing Launches First Novel in Uplifting Series that Celebrates the Human Experience

Author: Tumi Publishing
Dateline: , ()

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “”



A R T I C L E:

A Novel of Recovery and Redemption

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Oct. 11 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- People's lives are filled with constant challenges and adversities. That's why author Ricardo Estrada, founder of Tumi Publishing, has launched the first in a planned series of books that celebrates the human spirit - "Sticks of Fire: The Turning Point" (ISBN: 978-0979-675508).

Caption: Sticks of Fire"Sticks of Fire" is a fictional piece that inspires readers and illustrates how adversity can be overcome. It is the story of Orlando, the key character, and five halfway-house residents, a group of former high school and college basketball standouts - once rising stars, shot down by drugs and alcohol.

Orlando finds a job as a case manager at the Lighthouse Inn in Tampa, Fla., a recovery halfway house. While there, he and the residents, together, begin their road to recovery.

The story opens to find Orlando unemployed, in a hopeless battle with alcohol that has isolated him from friends and family. Five years earlier, his pregnant wife died in an accident, and his inability to deal with the loss has plunged him into alcoholism and a deep depression; he sees no purpose in life.

When Orlando takes the job at the Lighthouse, he keeps his alcoholism a secret. He promises himself to quit drinking and to work for one year, before he leaves Tampa in search of a fresh start. But his abstinence plan does not work, and after a demoralizing relapse, he can no longer deceive himself. Having witnessed another way to live at the Lighthouse, he accepts recovery.

"Sticks of Fire" follows Orlando's struggle with acceptance, his recovery, and his impact on those around him. While working at the Lighthouse, he experiences the healing power of helping others and rediscovers himself in the process.

Orlando quickly realizes the athletic talent of the former high school and college basketball stars and organizes a basketball team: "The Thunderbolts." Making peace with the past, they embark on the road to redemption and the realization of shattered and forgotten dreams.

The novel demonstrates how, with the help of others, and a little faith, people can experience gratitude, look to the future with a sense of renewed hope, and leave the ghosts of the past behind.

The author, Ricardo, has a Master's Degree in Rehabilitation Counseling and has worked as a rehabilitation and mental health counselor for several years in Tampa and New York; he has been an avid basketball fan all his life.

Ricardo's inspiration for "Sticks of Fire" came from professional and personal experience. He was born in Lima, Peru and grew up in the Tampa Bay area. Currently, he lives in Manhattan where he is busy at work on his second novel in this inspirational and mainstream series.

"Sticks on Fire" is available in paperback for $14.00. It is 279 pages and can be purchased through the publisher's web site at: www.tumipublishing.com.

Images of Biblical Noah Uncovered in Ancient Greek Art – New Discovery Impacts Creation-Evolution Debate

A R T I C L E:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Oct. 10 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Solving Light Books announced today the publication to the Web of 37 images of the Biblical Noah uncovered in ancient Greek art. The surprising Web Presentation (solvinglight.com/features/37NoahsPartI.htm) includes written commentary by Robert Bowie Johnson, Jr., author of "The Parthenon Code: Mankind's History in Marble" and most recently, "Noah in Ancient Greek Art" (ISBN 13: 978-0-9705438-4-4).

According to Johnson, ancient Greek artists and poets called Noah "Nereus" (meaning the "Wet One"), and also referred to him as the "Salt Sea Old Man." Greek artists depicted Noah/Nereus in black-figure vase-scenes, red-figure vase-scenes, and in sculpture.

The Web presentation shows that Greek artists depicted Noah/Nereus being threatened and pushed out of the way by the Greek hero and rebel, Herakles. Artists also portrayed Herakles as grabbing Noah/Nereus from behind, figuratively bringing him and his rule to a halt. Ancient vase-painters and sculptors also put Noah/Nereus into scenes as a solemn and dejected witness to key events heralding the takeover of Zeus-religion, including the defeat of his Yahweh-believing sons, and the birth of the serpent-friendly Athena.

"The prevailing notion in academic circles that Greek vase-artists and sculptors spent their lives depicting imaginary or "mythical" beings and events is absurd on its face. The Greek 'gods' look exactly like people, because that's who they were-our ancestors," Mr. Johnson said, pointing out that Socrates himself referred to Zeus, Apollo, and Athena as his "lords and ancestors."

Mr. Johnson's Web site (www.solvinglight.com) provides a wealth of documentation for his revolutionary new interpretation of ancient Greek art including:
    * A short pictorial review of what Greek religious art actually chronicles and celebrates.
    * An 8-page illustrated summary of the true meaning of Greek art entitled "Athena and Eve."
    * The east pediment of Parthenon reconstructed in color by computer (based on the physical evidence and substantiated by the relevant ancient art and literature) with the figures identified and the theme explained.
    * The 12 labors of Herakles from the temple of Zeus at Olympia restored in color by computer, with an explanation of how each related to the Greeks' rejection of Noah and his God, and how each fit into the Greeks' contrary boast that "man is the measure of all things."
    * Evidence that the Greeks depicted Kain (Cain) killing Abel on the south side of the Parthenon.
    * Sample sections from a 950-slide PowerPoint Presentation revealing the meaning of all seven of the Parthenon's sculptural themes (eight themes, including Athena's gold and ivory idol-image).
    * Section IV of Mr. Johnson's latest book, "Noah in Ancient Greek Art" explaining how the prevailing Darwinian paradigm has led to "The Mainstream's Blindness to Our Origins."
    * How Greek artists depicted the line of Kain (Cain) disappearing into the earth during the Flood, and how their vase-depictions celebrated the rebirth of the line of Kain after the Flood.
"Ancient Greek religious art does not portray myth as is widely supposed, but rather the history of the human race told from the standpoint of the way of Kain. Like the Book of Genesis, Greek artists traced back their ancestors to a first couple in an ancient paradise with a serpent-entwined apple tree-only they believed that the serpent enlightened, rather than deluded, that first couple," Mr. Johnson said.

"An enormous amount of information about mankind's true origins hides in plain sight in the art of ancient Greece. The many images of the Greek version of the Biblical Noah, now made available to the public on the Web, are just a small part of it," Mr. Johnson said.

Mr. Johnson's first book on this subject, "Athena and Eden: The Hidden Meaning of the Parthenon's East Facade" (2002) has been translated into French as "Athena et le Jardin d'Eden." His book, "The Parthenon Code: Mankind's History in Marble" has been translated into French, and into Greek. The book is currently the subject of much controversy in Greece.
