One Man’s 2,000 Mile Appalachian Trail Charity Journey turns into 12,450 Miles! Celebrating 15 Years of Walking for Sunshine!
CINCINNATI, Ohio, July 11, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — What began as a solo Appalachian Trail (AT) adventure with bears, bugs, and blisters, has become an annual fundraising source for Sunshine, a home for the developmentally disabled in Maumee, Ohio. When author and speaker Jeff Alt embarked on his AT journey to raise funds for Sunshine, he didn’t know that his journey would spark the creation of an annual event.
Alt’s brother Aaron, who was born with Cerebral Palsy, is a Sunshine resident. During Alt’s inaugural AT journey, supporters in Toledo walked in solidarity with Jeff, marking the first annual event. The event has now grown to over 400 walkers and runners netting over $225,000 for Sunshine. Alt’s story is told in an award winning book, “A Walk for Sunshine” (ISBN: 978-0-9679482-3-2) and was released as an audio book on June 5, 2012.
Alt’s original walk, combined with everyone who has walked, run or rolled for Sunshine brings a grand total of 12,450 miles traversed. This proves that when you put one foot in front of the other, you get a lot of steps in the right direction.
Alt inspires audiences with stories from “A Walk for Sunshine” – including humorous and hair raising animal encounters of sleeping with a skunk, being charged by a bear, eating lunch next to a rattlesnake and more. You learn how he ate a large pizza as a snack, a dozen donuts before breakfast; and still lost 30 pounds.
Alt shares hiking tips and profound lessons he learned from his journey such as:
* Why everyone should go after their dreams now!
* How humor can help you overcome adversity.
* How celebrating the simple things can get you through tough situations.
* Why we should introduce kids to the outdoors at the youngest of ages because computers are replacing the backyard and childhood obesity is becoming a national epidemic.
“On September 8, we will celebrate 15 years of walking for Sunshine. Alt continues to help host this family oriented Walk, 5K Run & Roll. All proceeds are used to help fund programs and services for the people served at Sunshine,” says Alt. Information: http://www.sunshine.org/2012/03/2458/ .
Jeff Alt is a member of the Outdoor Writers Association of America. His tips and adventures have been featured on Discovery Channel.com, ESPN, Hallmark Channel, NPR; in the Chicago Tribune, Cleveland Plain Dealer and the AP. Alt’s book, “A Walk for Sunshine” (9/09; $15.95 paperback; ISBN: 978-0-9679482-3-2; http://www.jeffalt.com/) has received several awards and the Kindle edition hit the best-selling charts in January, 2012.
“A Walk for Sunshine” was just released in audio (6/12; $19.99; ISBN: 978-1469240954; Brilliance Audio).

“Any Ol’ Jack” is currently available on Amazon for the Kindle; to date it’s sold 2,000 copies and has received great feedback and reviews.
One reader writes, “I think this book should be adapted into a movie. My gay friend told me how dead on it was with his life which got me interested. After reading it, I have a better understanding of how it feels to struggle with the identification of being gay and coming to terms with sexuality. This story has the ability to help a lot of people.”
Another reader shares, “This is a truthful, authentic story of finding yourself under all the layers of pride, sadness, and shame. It’s the type of story you wish you were a character in.”

LOS ANGELES, Calif., June 21, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — “Sarcophagus” by Jean-Pierre Chevalier (ISBN 13: 978-0-595-67678-1; ebook: ISBN 13: 978-0-595-83618-5) is now available in Kindle Edition at Amazon.com. This underground classic is a compelling literary phenomenon, read by patient advocates and would-be whistle-blowers.
In this stunning work of contemporary fiction, Chevalier has succeeded in illuminating one of the unspeakable tragedies of our age: the exploitation of illness. Rendering the depravity and misfeasance of our modern-day temples of medicine with scholarly aplomb, the gripping narrative in “Sarcophagus” chronicles the journey of an inspired physician and an intrepid biophysicist as they strive together against all odds to develop the world’s first effective targeted, injectable gene delivery system-the coveted holy grail of genetic medicine.
It is a time in history when terminal cancer patients languish on the chain of failed expectations while medical institutions, academic research centers, and giant pharmaceutical companies struggle in unison against the emerging tide of genetic medicine in a misguided effort to maintain the authority and applications of their loathsome poisonous treatments.
Written with the passion of a patient advocate and the omniscience of an astute insider, and set against the bleak and timely backdrop of true clinical pathos, “Sarcophagus” is a compelling journey of discovery and a descent into the netherworld of modern medicine as it stands poised at the threshold of history.
About the Author:
Jean-Pierre Chevalier, a leading authority on genetic medicine, is the consummate “insider,” capable of rendering the tragedies of modern medicine with scholarly aplomb. An accomplished scientist, whose pioneering work on cellular growth control led to the discovery of important cancer genes, effective modes of gene delivery, and new designer medicines, Jean-Pierre Chevalier stands alone as a transpicuous voice crying out in the wilderness, a stalwart social critic, and a patient advocate par excellence. As his life’s work ushers in the medicines of the future, his stories gleam as a treasure for the ages. The author can be contacted “indirectly” through Konrad Ventana: www.konradventana.com.

PHOENIX, Ariz., June 11, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — In his latest book, “Suicide of a Superpower” (2012), the American political commentator, Pat Buchanan, referred to the massive collapse of Christian values in U.S. culture since mid-twentieth century as “the death of Christian America.” However, in his new book, “Salvation is from the Jews: Moses, Judaism, and the Jewishness of Christianity” (ISBN: 978-1449725464; paperback; West Bow Press; December 2011), Christian theologian, J. Christopher, gives a different explanation for the same event.
Relying on historical evidence he has compiled, together with a prophecy from Jesus and another from Paul, theologian, J. Christopher, documents the final stages in the decline of Gentile-centered Christianity and its official ending according to the prophecy of Jesus. As for the prophecy made by Paul, Christopher explains how this prophecy established that at the same time Gentile-centered Christianity reached its official ending, a Jewish Messianic era in Christian history began. According to Christopher, this Jewish Messianic era is currently ongoing and will end just before the second coming of Jesus the Messiah.
For Christopher, U.S. and Jewish history since the 1940s have been giving clear signals in support of his view. The 1947 U.S. Supreme Court establishment of the legal doctrine of “the separation of Church and state” was the first major clue that Gentile-Christian influence in U.S. society was already following European Christianity in its own sharp decline.
By the end of the 1960s, following a series of additional set-backs, Gentile-centered Christianity’s social influence had reached rock bottom. But at the same time, Christopher notes that Jews in large numbers returned to their ancestral lands in the 1940s, established the State of Israel in 1948, and Gentiles lost control of Jerusalem on June 7, 1967.
For Christopher, this date meant the official ending of the Gentile-centered Christian era, fulfilling the prophecy of Jesus. At the same time, fulfilling the prophecy of Paul, Christopher sees this same date as having marked the beginning of what he sees as a currently ongoing Jewish Messianic era.
For a more detailed account of the evidence compiled by Christopher in support of this view, visit the website, http://ncjudaism.com/The_New_Jewish_Era.html.
About J. Christopher:
J. Christopher is a Christian theologian and honors seminary graduate. He is also the founder of a new system of biblical psychology and the author of a book on the subject. Currently, Christopher continues to pursue his work full-time as a theologian and theological writer. His church affiliation is with the Evangelical Covenant Church.
The book, “Salvation is from the Jews: Moses, Judaism, and the Jewishness of Christianity,” is available in hardcover, paperback, and Kindle editions.

New Book Release – Fiction: Thriller Weaves War Crimes, Cult Religion, Domestic Terrorism into Major Threat to U.S.
Plot: While searching for Phan’s missing daughter, Boston residents Mei Li Phan and Landry Carmichael stumble into a massive conspiracy. Their search threatens powerful forces seeking radical change. So now – they must die. The conspiracy: nuke a major American city.
Phan and Carmichael framed as terrorists. Hunted by authorities. Killers hard on their heels. Where can they go? Who can they trust? But past is prologue. Mei Li Phan is not what she seems; Carmichael no stranger to violence. They must each relive painful history to muster the strength, courage, and cunning to survive – and more, to save the lives of millions.
According to the Council of Foreign Relations “…roughly two-thirds of terrorism in the United States was conducted by non-Islamic American extremists from 1980-2001; and from 2002-2005, it went up to 95 percent.”
Says military theorist John Robb, “Strategic attacks are possible with a network of less than 70 people.”
Author Lloyd R. Prentice says, “I’m a close follower of current events. The politics of war crimes, cult religion, and domestic terrorism fascinate and, frankly, terrify me. The Gospel of Ashes asks ‘what if?’”
Scheduled for June 2012 release by Writers Glen Publications, “The Gospel of Ashes,” ISBN 978-0-9825892-2-9, is distributed through Ingram Book Company and can be purchased through Amazon and other major on line booksellers, from independent bookstores by request, or direct from the publisher at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Author Prentice has a graduate degree in public affairs communication from Stanford University; studied creative writing at San Francisco State College (now San Francisco State University).
Prentice lives in Marshfield, Massachusetts, with his wife, medical writer Laurie Beckelman.

MORGAN HILL, Calif., April 27, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Traditional publishing companies reject 98 percent of new authors, but authors like Moshe Kai Cavalin are quickly discovering that self-publishing can be done effectively with today’s Print-on-Demand (POD) technology. In March of 2012, Moshe Kai Cavalin’s “We Can Do” (ISBN-13: 978-1618630452; paperback), published using POD technology by Bookstand Publishing, made Amazon’s Top 100 list, showing how successful an author with a dream can be.
Bookstand Publishing’s President, Andy Baldwin, reminds budding authors that any author can achieve the same success: “Bookstand Publishing helped ‘We Can Do’ become a successful book. We can help any author publish a book and show them the tools to make their book successful.”
Baldwin offers authors the same tools that Moshe Kai used to become a success. One of these tools is a free book that is available to anyone who is interested in the process of self-publishing: “Moshe Kai used our paperback book, ‘The Self-Publishing Checklist: How to Prepare Your Manuscript for Publication and Promote Your Book,’ to prepare his book for publication. Any potential author can also request a FREE copy of this book at http://www.bookstandpublishing.com/pod4/ .”
Armed with a great story and “The Self-Publishing Checklist,” Moshe Kai’s book became a huge success. It is stories such as this that remind authors that today there are options, and that self-publishing is not a pursuit of vanity; rather, it is a way to unfetter authors from traditional publishers, keep their royalties, control the creative process every step of the way, and forge their own success that is in line with their vision, not the vision of the publisher.

PHOENIX, Ariz., April 2, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Author RAINMAN announces the release of his new book, “Black Man Hates Obama: OUTRAGED 2.0″ (ISBN: 978-1-4507-9302-5; paperback, 269 pp; RainMan SEZ, LLC).
According to the “RAINMAN,” the book’s controversial author: “The Fantasy: Barack Hussein Obama. Hailed God Of All Things, Savior of The World, The One, The Cure to all of the ills of the world, The Equalizer of Economic Disparity, a Modern Day Robin Hood, God in the flesh, ‘Possessor of a tongue dipped in the unvarnished truth,’ Mr. Fix-It.”
However, says the author in his book, “The Reality: Barack Hussein Obama. Peter Principle. A failure, a weak leader; perhaps a traitor, a pathological liar, a race-baiter; some say a Muslim empathizer, a Black Nationalist, a divider, a Constitution breaker, a lover of terrorists, Esau’s Hamitic Zionist Puppet, King of Governmental Expropriations, killer of the true Israelites through his billion dollar donations to the International Planned Parenthood Eugenics Program, and facilitator of implacable legislations designed to entrench us in the mire of the madness of their agenda – Total World Domination. Who is Barack Obama, Really? I believe he is an unconscionable predator.”
America is in deep trouble. We reached our Rubicon once we unwittingly surrendered our sovereign status as Nationals to the foreign corporation, the U.S.A., Inc. through adhesion contracts and reception of its benefits; and we became transmitting utilities for our Straw Man to conduct Uniform Commercial Code transactions in their unlawful and illegal world Matrix.”
How long will we continue to ignore the plagues that have rocked society? Will we persist in playing the evil and insane game of the elite, ‘The Fourteenth Amendment Slaves Who Believe They Are Free’; or will we rise up to take back the liberty we were given by our Creator, to be free, private, independent, sovereign flesh and blood men and women before it’s too late?”
Decisions we make in regards to leadership in 2012 will make us, or it will break us. Are we so morally broken as a society, that, as the Declaration of Independence claims, ‘mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed?’
The question is, after a long train of abuses and usurpations will we finally assume our right, our duty, to throw off such government, provide new guards for our future security, and institute new government?”

Adoptions of Textbook ‘Construction Project Management – a Managerial Approach’ Accelerate for Construction Management, Architecture and Real Estate College Programs
CHICAGO, Ill., March 27, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — “Construction Project Management – a Managerial Approach” (ISBN: 978-0-9799969-1-7) sales by Pareto Publishing have increased 400 percent each semester since publication in December 2010. This text uniquely provides the integration of construction management, project management and business management to enable a quantum leap in construction project quality, productivity and cost control-producing a competitive advantage essential in the now challenging United States construction market.
Demanding building owners in the United States manufacturing, power production, and energy distribution sectors have learned that simply soliciting multiple bids is no longer enough to achieve the results they seek, A paradigm shift to integrated project delivery employing more rigorous project management methodologies is needed. And all construction sectors in some areas outside the United States, particularly the Middle East, demand this improved project management capability and require the PMP (Project Management Professional) certification credential for new employees.
In the United States, the federal government GSA (General Services Administration) agency also makes the PMP credential preferred for new construction related employees – which can make it a de facto requirement in a competitive employment environment. This text is the first to integrate the Project Management Institute’s PMBOK(R) methodology, on which the PMP credential is based, into construction management to provide these now essential skills.
This text, authored by 40-year construction veteran JF McCarthy MBA CFM PMP, provides real world perspectives and skills to make the graduating students work ready-to win their first job and excel throughout their career. And it provides exactly the skills that the power generation and transmission constructions sectors, which have already rebounded and are now aggressively hiring, increasingly demand.
University adoptions and presales sales for the summer and fall of 2012 will continue the present text sales increase. With these continued increases “Construction Project Management – A Managerial Approach” will achieve a dominant share of the construction management academic market within 2-3 years. Winning the Axion Business Book, Indie Next Generation, and International Best Book Awards, it has also become popular with construction industry practitioners and is now in library collections worldwide.

WASHINGTON, D.C., March 12, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — “The Easter Bunny That Grew Up” (ISBN: 978-1-4685-5496-0) is a children’s book that pays tribute to a little rabbit that captured the hearts of people around the world on Facebook and the contributions he made to rabbits in rescues and shelters. On September 26th, 2010 Gretta Parker started a journey she was not planning on when she adopted a little white rabbit for $7.50 from a local shelter.
On a whim she made him a Facebook page where she could talk about adopting rabbits and rabbit care. She posted adoption ads and wrote about how Flopsy loved to flip things. She started making adoption awareness posters using his image. People began to share them and his page. Gretta told her family and friends that he was going to be the $7.50 rabbit that changed the world for all rabbits.
By 2011, Flopsy Parker had become a household name for his humor, his message of adoption and his honesty about how much care rabbits need. He was even quoted by the Wall Street Journal when he was outraged over the Royal Shakespeare Company using real dead rabbits in their stage productions.
Gretta taught herself how to make designs with his images and started a store on Cafepress using Flopsy’s image and her designs that sent the message that shelter bunnies are the best kind. She donated the proceeds to a different rabbit rescue each month. In the summer of 2011, Gretta pooled all her savings to start Baskets for Bunnies, Inc. a 501(c) non-profit that sends supplies to rabbit rescues on a monthly basis. Flopsy was of course the “spokesbunny.”
Flopsy not only inspired her to do more but he had become her teacher to the issues that rabbits face. The truth is rabbits are the third most abandoned animal in the United States but they do not get the funding or protection they need due to agricultural laws that govern them. She set her sights to changing this. By fall 2011, she started making plans to get funding for a nationwide spay and neuter program for rabbits.
In December 2011, with the help of a rabbit toy company called Pet Rabbit Toys she started Toys for Hops; a program to raise toys to send to rabbits in rescues in shelters. In less than 16 days, with the support of all of Flopsy’s Facebook fans they raised 2,000 toys that went to rescues and shelters all over the United States by Christmas.
On the evening of December 28th Flopsy Parker passed away suddenly from a congenital kidney defect. His Facebook page got so many posts that it shut his timeline down in less than 24 hours. People posting how he had influenced them to adopt, or how he made them laugh. His mother received letters from all over the world, all people who had been touched by a $7.50 rabbit that another family had chosen to give up. Gretta had been right he had started to change the world for rabbits.
To cope with her grief, Gretta Parker wrote a book called “The Easter Bunny That Grew Up” as a tribute to his short but big life. She decided that death would not be the end of their journey together but the beginning of a new one. Flopsy would always be her partner, son, best friend and continue to lead her to fight for the rights of rabbits. The book teaches about researching an animal’s care needs before buying, supporting rabbit rescues, and that sometimes the greatest treasures are the ones other people discard.
His mother plans to use the proceeds from the book to continue the work of Baskets for Bunnies, Inc. and to build a sanctuary in Flopsy’s name. The Flopsy Parker Memorial Sanctuary will house rabbits with behavioral or health issues and elderly rabbits. It will truly be the sanctuary that a mother’s love built.

Powerful New Book by Best-Selling Author Reveals the Secret Message Hidden within the Virgin Mary’s Life
DURHAM, N.C., March 1, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — “The Miracle Workers Handbook: Seven Levels of Power and Manifestation of the Virgin Mary” (ISBN: 978-1846949203) by Sherrie Dillard, and published by John Hunt Publishing O Books, explains the seven phases of Mary’s life as a blueprint for all people to experience divine intuitive communication, synchronicity, grace, miracles and ascension.
Author Sherrie Dillard, a professional intuitive and medium, is no stranger to religion. Her mother and one of her brothers are Methodist ministers and her other brother is a Catholic theologian and head of the religion department at a Catholic University. Through her unique perspective as an intuitive and medium, Sherrie presents a groundbreaking viewpoint of the Virgin Mary. Mary, she explains, is a saint for all people. Christians, Buddhists, pagans, Muslims and spiritual seekers alike find common ground is this new revelation of Mary.
After recounting some of her often funny early intuitive experiences and her encounters with Mary, Sherrie discusses what she believes to be Mary’s true message. Living in a strict Jewish community where woman were considered second class citizens, Mary shifted the prevailing concept of God as a judging, moralistic and male outer force to that of an inner spiritual presence. When she invoked the power of the heavens and miraculously conceived, Mary created a new paradigm. God became the divine loving spirit of grace and miracles that can be found within. The miraculous conception was not a one-time only event. All people, Sherrie affirms, have the innate ability to intuitively communicate with angels, experience synchronicity, live in grace and co-create miracles.
Of the Miracle Workers Handbook, Margaret L. Starbird, author of “The Feminine Face of Christianity” and “The Woman with the Alabaster Jar,” writes: “Sherrie Dillard’s new book presents spiritual truths to bless today’s pilgrims learning to trust the spiritual guidance of intuition and synchronicity. Stories she shares about the miraculous are illustrations of a clear connection to the ‘Way’ of radical trust in the ‘Divine Presence’ in every facet of our human experience.”
Joanna Macy Ph.D., author of “World As Lover, World As Self,” says: “Everything that Sherrie Dillard writes has the ring of authenticity that comes with great beauty and spiritual depth.”
Sherrie is the author of the best-selling “Discover Your Psychic Type” (Llewellyn Worldwide, 2008) of which Business Reed Information said: “Lifelong psychic Dillard (intuition development, Duke Univ.) offers up a genuinely satisfying work on developing psychic abilities well beyond the typical if-I-can-do-it, you-can-too!”
Her book “Love and Intuition” (Llewellyn Worldwide, 2010) explores how to develop intuition in one of the most spiritual aspects of life: love and relationships. SingleWomenRule.com wrote “The book that can turn your love life around,” and Suite 101 wrote, “This book is a keeper!”

Her writing has appeared in national magazines and she has been featured on radio and television for her innovative books and her work as a psychic detective and medium. She has taught intuition development classes at Duke University, Miraval Resort and in Latin America and Europe. Her passion for the fusion of intuition, spirituality and conscious self-growth has made her a popular speaker and teacher at retreats and conferences both nationally and internationally.
