“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.

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.

The House That Richard Built

Tarpon Springs, FL (i-newswire) June 25, 2012 — Kentucky Pastor James D. Smith was raised by a man that, at first, he wanted nothing to do with. A carpenter named Richard became James’ step father at a young age, and over time he won over his young son. In the process Richard used his carpentry skills to teach James vital life lessons.

“I wrote my book for anyone who ever sets out to build something special,” explained author James Smith. “Everyone is building something in life but most of us could use a little help.  This book is meant to share a little help.”

The story of James’ upbringing, entitled “The House that Richard Built: Lessons Learned as a Carpenter’s Son,” is now available for the popular Kindle eReader and it can be downloaded free for three days, starting Monday, June 25. It is available exclusively through Amazon.com for the Kindle eReader, Kindle App, and online through the Kindle Cloud.

“I read this book on a coast-to-coast flight,” explained Rich Nilsen, President of All Star Press.  “My goal is to publish books that can change lives. I was so impressed with the numerous life lessons that Richard taught his step son James that I had to publish this book.”

We are all carpenters; we are all building something. We are building families, marriages, careers, relationships, and legacies. The question for all of us is “do we have the right type of tools and instruction to build the life we want?” You can learn about these power tools for life in the new e-book “The House that Richard Built” by author James D. Smith.

Our lives are always under construction. This book is the power tool you need to ensure that you build an awesome house, not just for you but also for your friends and loved ones. Author James Smith learned the lessons that he shares in this book by working with Richard, his stepfather, as a young man. In his life, James has been a soldier, a high school teacher, a college instructor, a trainer, and a graduate Bible student. He combines his varied life experiences and the skills of carpentry with biblical wisdom in a way that readers will find both useful and refreshing.

“In the Book of Jeremiah, God has told us that He has plans for us: plans to prosper us, plans to give us hope and a future,” explained Smith.

With sincerity and openness about his own life mistakes, James helps his readers identify and apply life lessons that will help them build the life that God has planned.

Some of the things you will learn in this powerful life guide: What it means to: measure twice and cut once, what to do when the roof comes crashing down, how to ensure you’re building on the right foundation, how to focus so you hit the nails, and more.

School Libraries adding more e-books

School libraries ebooksThe number of school libraries building electronic stacks is increasing in the past few years.

A 2011 survey by the School Library Journal found that 31 percent had e-books in their collections. But 63 percent of those surveyed said they couldn’t afford to buy digital books.

On a recent afternoon, 9-year-old Josh Hezel and his classmates were in the library at Long Elementary.

A generation ago, Hezel and the others might have stopped by a shelf of recommended books, or searched on his own in the card catalog. Instead, he and his classmates sat down with some of the school’s new e-readers. The book titles flew by on a digital screen as the boy scrolled through, stopping at one that caught his eye.

“I think librarians are in favor of anything that gets students reading,” said Margaret Sullivan, regional director for the Missouri Association of School Libraries and president of St. Louis Suburban School Librarians Association. “What we just want to make sure is that every student has access to technology, because some students might not have that at home.”

Is $9.99 still the Magic Price for an e-book?

“What ebooks I buy for my Kindle and what I am willing to pay for them has absolutely nothing to do with the price of the device itself.  And to say that it does is ridiculous.  I buy between 20 – 40 books for my Kindle per month.  I am a voracious reader.  Unless a book is by an author that I like enormously I will not pay over $9.99.  I usually don’t buy books that cost even that much.  Period.  I put books that cost that much on my Wish List & check back periodicaly to see if the price has dropped, which usually happens when a paperback edition of the book is released. I don’t read as many mysteries anymore because for some reason that genre has higher prices than any other.  I’m a patient person.  I wait until the price goes down.  Or get it from the library.

Publishers need to realize that by lowering their prices they’ll make more money from ebooks because they’d sell many, many more.  Even old books that were published 60 – 80 years ago are being put out by publishers at $9.99!  Get real.  Once a book is on the publisher’s computers for publishing, the editing and other technical details are done anyway.  The only thing they have to do for an ebook edition is to format it properly.  It’s all digital.  No additional costs for cover art. No cost for warehousing ebooks.  No returns processing for ebooks. No printing costs for ebooks.  And publishers expect us to pay the same prices they charge for hard copy books?!?”
