“Angel Gabriel – A True Story” Translated into Portuguese

IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Tarpon Springs, FL, October 31, 2013 — Angel Gabriel, the true story in the aftermath of Comair crash 3272, was penned by Michigan resident Joy LaPlante and released in e-book format earlier this summer.  The amazing story, which recounts LaPlante’s experiences following that aviation crash, has now been translated into Portuguese.

LaPlante was approached by a reader of her book who was so taken by the story that she offered to translate the work into her native language.

Angel Gabriel, a true story by author Joy LaPlante“I sent an email to Joy saying that I was willing to translate her story into the Portuguese language free of charge,” explained translator Isabel L. Soares.  “I did this because I knew in my heart that she was genuine, that she was not doing this for the money and because her main reason to write this story was to bring hope, joy and peace to people’s hearts.”

“I do not follow any religion, but so what?” continued Soares. “I believe there is only one God, the God that was willing to once again answer my prayers and to help me bring healing to all those whose life I touch daily.”

The true story of Angel Gabriel (or Anjo Gabriel in Portuguese) begins on January 9, 1997.  LaPlante’s book tells about the events following the only major, commercial airline crash in the United States in 1997. Originally written and self-published in 1999 by author Joy LaPlante, “Angel Gabriel – A True Story” was picked up by publishing house All Star Press, updated, and re-released in all e-book formats.

“When I wrote the book, I just sat down and wrote it,” explained Joy.  “I just told the story of my experience with the Angel Gabriel.  I never thought in a million years I would write a book and become a published author.  It is just something that happened.  I am just a simple woman who told my story, in my own words, to help spread the message.”

The Portuguese edition of “Angel Gabriel – A True Story” is titled “Anjo Gabriel – Uma Historia Real” and is available only through the Kindle store from leading retailer Amazon.com. The book includes the English version as a bonus and is offered at the introductory price of only $3.47.

Hot New Release: “My Wild Ride”

All Star Press' My Wild Ride by author Susan Bump

#2 in the Kindle horse racing store behind Seabiscuit

“MY WILD RIDE: The Untamed Life of a Girl with No Self-esteem” was released last week by All Star Press – Books that Change Lives. Within three days of release, the life story of ex-Thoroughbred trainer and exercise rider Susan Bump hit the #2 in the Amazon Kindle store behind the mega-best seller Seabiscuit. Positive reviews have been pouring in on Amazon since the long awaited release of Susan’s book.

“‘My Wild Ride’ is a must read for those who are warmed by feel-good animal stories, who are curious about life at the track, who are challenged by a past that holds them back from experiencing their own self-worth! I laughed, I cried, and found a new respect for the life I live having seen life through the authors eyes,” stated reader Debbie Joswick.

“This story is absolutely riveting,” explained Debra Lyn Daly.  “Anyone struggling to overcome the scars of growing up in a dysfunctional family will be deeply inspired by Susan’s story. I couldn’t put it down!”

The life story of Susan Bump, although sad at times, is ultimately a story of triumph.  The child of two alcoholics, she overcame her tragic family upbringing to pursue her dream of training Thoroughbred racehorses.  When the dream no longer served her, she quit training and became an activist, protesting for animal and human rights.

There is never a dull moment in My Wild Ride.  The ‘untamed life of a girl with no self-esteem’ offers lots of tears, but lots of laughs, too.

“My Wild Ride” is available in PDF format for instant download. Only $4.97 and, of course, no shipping or handling on this e-book!

ABOUT AUTHOR SUSAN BUMP

A former trainer in Southern California, Susan Bump broke and trained horses for over 30 years.  She had to quit when she realized that she was part of the problem rather than part of the solution.

Susan eventually became a human and animal rights activist.  A member of San Diego Animal Defense team, Susan successfully protested inhumane pet stores in San Diego leading to criminal charges against the owners.

She was arrested for trespassing in the small town of Valley Center, Ca. when she gave water to dying animals on a hot summer day.   Her story made front page news in the local paper, The North County Times.  So many animal lovers supported her in court that the newspapers called them her ‘entourage.’

She currently lives with her 8 wonderful dogs on a 47,000 acre, Arizona ranch in a 100-year-old adobe house in the magical town of Arivaca.

Susan Bump was the daughter of an alcoholic and bipolar mother, and an alcoholic abusive father, and consequently, she grew up hating life.

After realizing that she was indeed special, and worthy, her life has become fantastic.  This is her Wild Ride.

Author Rich Nilsen‘s powerful book, Sleep Great for Life, a publication of All Star Press, is free this Tuesday through Thursday in the Kindle Store on Amazon.com.  Nilsen’s five-star rated book offers 14 critical steps for proper sleep hygiene.

Readers are then provided the crux of the Sleep Great method, which is an easy-to-follow procedure for overcoming various forms of sleep disorders.

Every night millions of people throughout the country suffer with insomnia. It may be difficulty falling asleep, constantly waking up in the middle of night with the inability to resume sleeping, restless sleep in general, or a combination of these difficulties.

Sleep deprivation can spiral out of a control, lasting for months or years while wreaking havoc on a person’s overall well-being and health. It doesn’t have to be that way.

“Sleep surveys indicate that fifty-eight percent of adults in the U.S. experience symptoms of insomnia a few nights a week or more,” explained Nilsen.  ” The impact of poor sleep results in numerous health and personal issues, including depression, increased blood pressure, irritability, difficulty concentrating, lack of desire, just to name a few.”

“The Sleep Great method teaches readers that they do not have to rely on sleeping pills to get a good night’s sleep on a regular basis,” continued the author. “I suffered with debilitating insomnia and it wrecked my life. It pains me to see anyone else suffering with a sleep disorder because I know how difficult it can be, how it can affect one’s personal and work life, and the depression it can result. Insomnia is a vastly underrated health problem.”

The book, which is also sold in paperback for $12.97, is available exclusively in e-book format for the Kindle. Beginning Tuesday, June 25 and ending at Midnight on Thursday, June 27, the book “Sleep Great for Life” can be downloaded at no charge.

“Angel Gabriel – A True Story” Released in E-Book on Monday

Angel Gabriel, a true story by author Joy LaPlanteIt was the beginning of the New Year, 1997. Outside of her home in Monroe, Michigan, it was cold, windy and snowing. Inside, Joy LaPlante was counting her blessings for a warm house and thinking how glad she was that she didn’t have to go outside.  Joy was startled by the sound of my phone ringing. It was her good friend Honey.

 “Joy, did you hear what happened?” “No. What?” she answered.

“I turned on my police scanner,” Honey continued, her voice serious. “Joy, there has been a plane crash!”

Joy felt her heart sink as Honey continued.  “They’re saying it’s in a field in Ida.”

They listened to what was being said on the scanner and could hear a fireman’s voice quivering as he spoke.  “We don’t know what kind of plane this is, but it looks like a disaster.”

The fireman spoke again, “Call in Petersburg, Deerfield and Monroe. Put everybody else on standby, we’re going to need help. We need to find out what type of plane this was, and how many were on.”

Two weeks later on the night of January 23, Joy felt the presence of someone standing over her, watching her.  She was afraid to open her eyes for fear of what she would see.  Joy just knew if she opened her eyes there would be someone standing there looking at her.  She laid there thinking, maybe it was the spirit of her grandmother or grandfather, but somehow she knew it wasn’t.  She started saying The Lord’s Prayer and then started praying that whatever was there would go away.

However, just then, with her eyes closed, Joy saw the most beautiful face she had ever seen. His eyes were as blue as the sky on a day full of sunshine with no clouds.  The blue part of his eyes had purple running through it and gold flecks that sparkled.  At first, she just stared at his eyes in total awe.

Then she realized her eyes were open, and the feeling of love was overwhelming.  So overwhelming in fact, that Joy thought her chest and heart were going to explode.  She was no longer scared.  She looked at him and said “Hello.”

This is true story in the aftermath of ComAir crash 3272, the only major, commercial airline crash in the United States in 1997. Originally written and self-published in 1999 by author Joy LaPlante, “Angel Gabriel – A True Story” has been updated to be re-released in all e-book formats by publishing house All Star Press. The release date is Monday, June 24, 2013.

Keeneland Winning Trainer Patterns Book Released for 2013

Keeneland 2013 Trainer Book

Click here to download

A new horse racing guide “Keeneland Winning Trainer Patterns – 2013 spring meet edition,” which profiles the most successful horsemen that race in Kentucky, is now available in all e-book formats , including for the popular Kindle eReader. It is the most recent publication of publishing house All Star Press.

 

Written by author and handicapper Art Parker, “Keeneland Winning Trainer Patterns” evaluates the tendencies of successful trainers at the prestigious horse racing meet in Lexington, KY which begins Friday, April 5th. In all Parker dissects the 103 horse trainers who have saddled two or more winners at Keeneland Racecourse over the past six race meets.

 

This new handicapping and horse racing e-book has been released just in time for the upcoming Keeneland spring meet, which opens Friday April 5. The handicapping guide has been expanded to cover more trainers than ever before. It also includes alphabetical and numerical lists of every winning trainer over the past six meets dating back to the spring of 2010.

 

We published this informational book in a user-friendly format that could be read on any eReader, smart phone or Tablet device,” explained Rich Nilsen, President of All Star Press and founder of the educational horse racing site, AGameofSkill.com. “That way, any horse racing fan can have this book’s information right at their fingertips through the mobile device of their choice. If you are at Keeneland or your local track/OTB, and you are handicapping the Keeneland races, you can easily look up any trainer. You can see how they’ve won in the past, and if the horse they are running today fits a similar profile.”

 

Utilizing his personal handicapping database, author Art Parker analyzed the winning trainers at the Keeneland meets over the past three years to uncover familiar winning patterns. The belief, which is held by many successful horse racing handicappers, is that trainers follow similar patterns when winning.

 

“Only 47 trainers have accounted for nearly 70 percent of the winners since 2010,” explained Nilsen. “Knowing how these trainers win is critical to selecting winners at Keeneland.”

 

“Keeneland Winning Trainer Patterns” includes several bonus handicapping articles: “You Learn More When You Lose than When You Win,” “What’s Your Handicapping Routine?” “The Key Factor that handicappers need to know about the All-weather Surface” and an analysis of the “Turf to Synthetic surface switch.”

 

“Keeneland Winning Trainer Patterns – 2013 spring meet edition” has just become available in all e-book formats, including PDF, and is available through retailers such as Amazon.com for the Kindle eReader and Kindle Fire. It is the only handicapping book specifically about Keeneland that is available to Kindle users.

Job Seekers and the Unemployed Can Learn to Stand Out in a Crowded Marketplace

Tarpon Springs, FL (i-newswire) October 3, 2012 — Getting noticed in this job market is a challenging task, especially in a difficult economy where more and more people are unemployed and looking for work.

Career guidance expert James Hale of Path Choice has the solution for job seekers in his new Kindle book “Getting Seen,” available free starting Thursday.

“This book is for any potential job applicant who wants to stand out from the crowd,” explained Hale. “If you want the same old resume advice, this book is not for you. If you want to do some pre-resume work and create a tool that immediately puts you in the top 10 percent of job searchers, read on.”

“Getting Seen: The Ultimate Guide to Creating the Most Important Document of Your Life – Your Resume” is now available for the popular Kindle eReader and it can be downloaded free for two days starting Thursday, October 4. It is available exclusively through Amazon.com for the Kindle eReader, Kindle App, and read online with any device through the Kindle Cloud.

The career guidance advice in “Getting Seen” is based on fact. It dispels the misguided rumors that run rampant in the typical resume advice. Unfortunately, most resumes are nothing more than lifeless lists of a candidate’s job history. They don’t tell what the candidate has actually done, where he has done it, or why it was important. On the other extreme are resumes that are boiling over with detail, running into 20-25 page, or more. These authors have forgotten that a resume is ultimately meant to get you through the door, not do the interview as well.

“This is a book that gets to the heart of resume writing and that heart is the idea of using the resume as a teaching tool,” explained James D. Smith, Author and President of Iron 2 Iron Equipping. “I’ve been in the personal development business for almost 20 years and have not come across a better resource for the job seeker or career changer. People pay thousands of dollars for the advice and coaching that is in Getting Seen.

This book examines exactly what recruiters, human resources personnel, and hiring managers are looking for in the resumes that they receive each day, and how you can give it to them. If you follow James Hale’s advice, you will drastically increase the odds that you will stand out and that recruiters will call you for a face-to-face interview where you can further wow them with your skills and professionalism.

Hale will show you what employers have come to prefer in terms of resume content, length, and format. These preferences have changed recently due to dramatic changes in technology and increased resume traffic. The author will also help you understand the functions of a resume and the psychological profile of the person who evaluates it.

You will also learn how to present yourself so hiring personnel will see you in the position they are filling. You will have a shine on your resume that gets you noticed.

“Getting Seen: The Ultimate Guide to Creating the Most Important Document of Your Life – Your Resume” will give you the tools you need to land the job you want. The book is available free through the Amazon.com Kindle store Thursday and Friday of this week.

By putting together a highly targeted resume using the principles in this book, you will beat out the hundreds of people vying for the same job who have been seduced by the temptation to lie their way into a job they can’t handle. The author doesn’t want you to begin your relationship with your employer based on lies and subtle deceit.
