Best-Selling Classic HOPE FOR THE FLOWERS Released as an eBookBest-Selling Classic HOPE FOR THE FLOWERS Released as an eBook
by BWW News Desk - Oct 28, 2014

Author-illustrator Trina Paulus and Vook are pleased to announce the digital release of the classic inspirational book for adults and children alike Hope for the Flowers, 42 years after the book's publication. Hope for the Flowers, published by Paulist Press in 1972, has sold over 3 million copies and is a beloved favorite of readers around the world. The 160 page illustrated story expresses Trina's vision of hope and a world of cooperation. For the first time, Hope for the Flowers will be available in ebook form, allowing more readers to share in the story of its caterpillar heroes, Stripe and Yellow. 'I am thrilled Stripe and Yellow can reach more millions. Our world needs their message. If enough dare 'risk for a butterfly' and fly, we can carry the healing pollen of peace and hope with justice to flowers everywhere,' says Trina on her decision to publish digitally. 'A digital version is not held back by the physical limits of print and can help Hope further cross all boundaries.' The book tells the inspiring story of a young caterpillar struggling to find his way in a self made pillar of caterpillars that defines his society's competitive nature. Trina conceived of Hope and illustrated and created the book after being evacuated from Egypt during the Six-Day War in 1967. Trina personally oversaw the conversion of the original book into the digital format, illustrating and adapting every page to render the best experience across all the major devices. 'Hope for the Flowers is a favorite childhood book of members of the Vook team. We were impressed to see that Trina had overseen the creation of a note-perfect digital experience of the book. We're eager to deliver this book to the new generation of digital readers,' says Matt Cavnar, Vook Co-Founder and Publisher. Hope for the Flowers is currently available for purchase on Amazon and iBooks for $7.99. About Trina Paulus At 18, Trina turned down two college scholarships and moved to Grailville seeking spiritual formation. After building up its art center, Trina went to Akhmim, Egypt to help develop a women's embroidery cooperative. During the 1967 Six-Day War, she was evacuated to the International Grail Center in Paris, where in the midst of the revolutionary 60's, she rediscovered the Manuscript titled 'Hope' she had written two years earlier. Returning to the US in 1969 Trina signed a contract for 'Hope' with Paulist Press. Today, Trina is an active participant in groups that promote a culture of unity, personal-growth, and care for our earth home. She is also working on the long-awaited sequels to Hope for the Flowers.

by Herbert Paine - Oct 27, 2014

A solid ensemble delivers Rebeck's rapid fire dialogue with bristling conviction and energy. It is a well-crafted production that will have you reflecting on its themes long after you've left the theatre and likely wanting to see it one more time. (more...)

ASD Releases THE ACCIDENTAL PILGRIM by Stephen KitsakosASD Releases THE ACCIDENTAL PILGRIM by Stephen Kitsakos
by BWW News Desk - Jan 29, 2015

ASD Publishing is proud to announce the release of Stephen Kitsakos's debut novel, 'The Accidental Pilgrim' (ISBN: 9780996102919, Release date March 3, 2015). Crossing several decades, this novel explores the intersection of science, religion, and the unexplainable. In the summer of 1974, Dr. Rose Strongin, a marine biologist, disappears for three hours on the last day of an archaeological dig at the Sea of Galilee. She has no memory of the disappearance, but it causes her to miss her flight home to Canada. That plane, TWA 841, explodes over the Mediterranean killing all aboard. Twelve years later a discovery is made, and she begins to put the missing pieces together. But it is not until after her death, when her family gathers to say goodbye that her secrets start to make themselves known. Kitsakos is a theatre writer and journalist as well as the author of three opera librettos. His current project is the opera adaptation of Khaled Hosseini's international bestseller 'A Thousand Splendid Suns' all with music by Sheila Silver. Other librettos include the Sackler Prize award-winning 'The Wooden Sword' and 'The White Rooster: A Tale of Compassion' for the Smithsonian Institution. His work often explores the connection between religion and art. He divides his time between Key West and New York. 'I've known Stephen as a writer, composer and journalist for years,' says ASD Managing Editor Greg Goldston. 'When I read the first Manuscript of his debut novel, I was blown away by the amount of historical research he had weaved into this captivating fictional story. After months of working back and forth on this very layered story, ASD is thrilled to be able to share it with the world.' Author Sharon Boorstin calls it, 'A beautifully written page turner that reveals the strength of family relationships against the backdrop of a mysterious archaeological discovery in the Holy Land.' Author Paul Pines adds, 'A riveting read that spans geographical distance even as it explores the tension between science and altered states...Kitsakos threads a labyrinth of questions and embraces the greatest mystery of all: what connects us to our ancestors, ourselves and each other.' 'My work in theatre and opera introduced me to a number of sacred texts in both the Western and Eastern traditions which were important to understand as background material for projects,' says author Kitsakos. 'In particular, the sublime poetry of Paramahansa Yogananda and a passage in John's Gospel brought into focus for me a story I had been percolating for a while. My protagonist, a strong Jewish heroine, took me on one path and then abruptly brought me somewhere else.' The book will be available in print and eBook from all online retailers as well as indie bookstores across the country. Kitsakos will be hosting book signings and discussions in several states. To keep up with where he will be, please check out his website at www.stephenkitsakos.com ASD Publishing, a division of ASD Media & Entertainment, is an independent book publisher based in New Jersey, specializes in thought-provoking literary fiction, memoir, self-help nonfiction, and written word that champion personal growth and the independent spirit. www.asdpublishing.com (more...)

Mundus Artium Press Releases I COME TO LEAF OUTMundus Artium Press Releases I COME TO LEAF OUT
by BWW News Desk - Jan 27, 2015

undus Artium Press announces the publication of the new Serbian book, 'I Come to Leaf Out,' written by Gjekë Marinaj. Mundus Artium Press announces the publication of the new Serbian book, 'I Come to Leaf Out,' written by Gjekë Marinaj and published by the Association of Writers of Serbia. Originally written in Albanian, this book is a collection of work that includes a selection of poems from Marinaj's previously published poetry books in Albanian, has been translated into Serbian by Pjetër Dreshaj, and edited by acclaimed Serbian author and journalist, Jovan Janji?. Just published in Belgrade, Serbia, 'I Come to Leaf Out,' is a book of poetry which addresses the importance of embracing human diversity. 'The diversity and authenticity of Marinaj's poetic Manuscript bring poetry to a new level,' says Ljubomir Kovacevic . 'His poetry speaks to the modern world and anyone in our time should read this. Gjekë Marinaj's poetry collection within demonstrates the maturity and originality of his craft. The world undoubtedly needs his angst.' Two introductory essays are included in this work as a prolog and epilogue. The first essay, Song as a Center of the Universe, is written by Milica Jeftimijeviç Liliç, the current vice president of the Association of Writers of Serbia. The second essay, The Anxiety and Delight of Gjekë Marinaj, is written by Ljubomir Kovaceviç. Dr. Marinaj dedicates 'I Come to Leaf Out' to his Serbian friends: 'This book is dedicated to Petar Jelic and my friends in Serbia who were by my side and helped me during the most difficult time in my life.' The ISBN number for the hardcover edition of the book is ISBN 978-86-81537-49-7. Praise for Gjekë Marinaj (Taken from the Essays in 'I Come to Leaf Out') 'Gjekë Marinaj as a poet certainly speaks to us all, and takes responsibility for the universal misdeeds of the modern era. He sheds light on hypocrisy, cruelty, and the attack on the universal truth and order of things.' Milica Jeftimijevic Lilic, Vice President of the Association of Writers of Serbia. 'Last year, in a conversation with Tariq Ali (about Marinaj's poetry), I asked him whether poetry still has such power. They are still reciting poetry at Tahrir Square,' he said. 'Gjeke Marinaj is one of the few poets-and there are only a few -whose words come alive beyond print.' - Vladimir Tasic. Praise for Other Works by Gjekë Marinaj 'The poet Gjekë Marinaj has achieved impressive versatility in his creative work. Effortlessly, he extends his reach from poetry to journalism and vice versa. Posing intelligent, insightful questions to the icons of Albanian and international art, literature, politics and sports, he offers his Albanian readers a book of interviews that is as interesting as it is meaningful.' - Arben Çokaj, Illyria 'In the troubled and turbulent times we inhabit, it is rare to find a voice of stillness - an anchor to which we can attach our trust. With the world changing every day, and not always for better, we require the safe harbor of sanity and soundness. In the poignant poetry of Gjekë Marinaj, we do find such a sanctuary.' - Wm. L. Dubnov, Phoenix Review '... 'a first-rate poet' ... Gjekë Marinaj understands the illuminating power of the written word in a nation that wishes to be free. His commitment to writing was born out of a harrowing personal tale of dissent and retribution.' - Brent Flynn, The Dallas Morning News About the Author Gjekë Marinaj is an award-winning Albanian-American writer, poet, literary critic, and translator. He is the founder of Protonism Theory which advocates positive thinking and peace through literary analysis and criticism. His other books include Do Not Depart From Me, Infinite, Prayer on the Eighth Day of the Week, The Other Side of the Mirror, Some Things Can't Be Kept Secret, and Protonism: Theory into Practice. The QNK, part of the Ministry of Tourism, Cultural Affairs, Youth and Sports of Albania, awarded Gjekë Marinaj the Pjetër Arbnori Award for literature in 2008. He resides in the United States and is the Director of the Mundus Artium Press. He also teaches English and Communication at Richland College in Dallas, Texas. His website is www.marinaj.info.

Marie Osmond to be Featured in STARS THAT MAKE A DIFFERENCE BookMarie Osmond to be Featured in STARS THAT MAKE A DIFFERENCE Book
by BWW News Desk - Jan 14, 2015

Country music veteran Marie Osmond will be featured in the new 'Stars That Make A Difference' book being published early this year. Creative Partners Books announced late last year that author Randy Jernigan's 'fan book' series had been rebooted and will now include four celebrity biographical sketches under one cover. The author also recently took to his Facebook page to announce that he and his publishing house will donate a portion of the books earning to The Trevor Project, a hotline for LGBT, and other troubled teens in crisis. 'I believe in the organization and the great work that it does for our youth that may be hurting and need special help,' wrote Jernigan. The changes in the book series have regretfully prolonged the release date to early 2015, but company officials promise that the content of the Manuscript will be filled with inspiring information that the fans want to read about their favorite star. The first installment of 'Stars That Make A Difference' will feature biographical sketches of Daniel Radcliffe, Ellen Degeneres, Marie Osmond, and Taylor Swift. Jernigan had announced several years back that he was working on an unauthorized bio of Osmond, but shelved the book several times for various reasons. 'When my publishing partners suggested that I add Marie's biographical sketch to my 'Stars' book I thought is was genius,' said Jernigan. The Marie Osmond sketch will cover her long and varied career as a country music singer, her time in television, on stage and in film. And a serious look at her personal life including her two divorces, and the untimely death of her son from suicide. The book will be released through Creative Partners Fan Book Series through Amazon's Kindle and paperback early 2015. (more...)

THE WINCHESTER BIBLE Exhibit to Debut at MoMA, 12/8THE WINCHESTER BIBLE Exhibit to Debut at MoMA, 12/8
by BWW News Desk - Dec 3, 2014

Masterfully illuminated pages from two volumes of the magnificent, lavishly ornamented Winchester Bible—a pivotal landmark of medieval art from around 1200—will be shown at The Metropolitan Museum of Art for three months, beginning December 9, in the exhibition The Winchester Bible: A Masterpiece of Medieval Art. Probably commissioned around 1155–60 by the wealthy and powerful Henry of Blois (1129–1171), who was the Bishop of Winchester (and grandson of William the Conqueror and King Stephen's brother), the Manuscript is the Cathedral's single greatest surviving treasure. Renovations at Winchester Cathedral provide the opportunity for these pages, which feature the Old Testament, to travel to New York. This presentation marks the first time the work will be shown in the United States. At the Metropolitan Museum, the pages of one bound volume will be turned once each month; three unbound bi-folios with lavish initials from the other volume—which is currently undergoing conservation—will be on view simultaneously for the duration of the exhibition.

Randy Jernigan Reveals Weight-Loss Struggles and Southern Recipes in New CookbookRandy Jernigan Reveals Weight-Loss Struggles and Southern Recipes in New Cookbook
by BWW News Desk - Dec 23, 2014

Adjusting the speed on his stationary bike, Randy Jernigan shifted his weight, wiped at the sweat that had collected on his brow, then began to peddle. For an entire hour, the 53 year old American freelance writer biked without getting out of breath or stopping because of pain. That feat was a remarkable accomplishment for Jernigan, who weighed in at 355 pounds (huge for his 5'8 frame) a little over two years ago and could barely walk to his mailbox without severe pain or total exhaustion. He has lost 163 pounds to date, has beat a severe case of gout, diabetes and hypertension, and has resolved to keep the weight off and remain healthy for the rest of his life with his own maintenance program. Jernigan says he was fighting for his life. His weight-loss journey began a little more than two years ago when he collapsed in his bathroom at home one evening. His blood sugars and blood pressure was out of control and if his best friend and roommate (Jackson Fackrell) hadn't got him to the emergency room in time he may not have lived to tell his story. A doctor told Jernigan that if he didn't make some quick changes he's be dead within 3 months. His success so far-without the help of surgery or an organized weight-loss program-is nothing less than stunning, local health care officials noted. 'It's been a hard road but I'm determined to keep it off and stay healthy,' says Jernigan, who kept a daily diary on his Facebook page, then ended up penning a best selling book about his experiences titled, 'Losing To Win! A Digest of Recipes and Tips to Keep You Fit and Healthy' through Creative Partners Publishing House. As soon as Jernigan left the hospital he began to walk, as well as use his apartment complex's workout room. Pound by pound the weight began to drop off. His shirt size shrank from 3X to medium and his pant size shrank from size 54 waist to 36 waist. 'I can actually see my toes now when I'm standing straight up.' His meals shrank, too. On the advice of a dietician he began eating whole fruits and vegetables and lean meats. 'Once I began to lose about 10 to 15 percent of my body weight I began to feel so much better health-wise and emotionally and I began to realize that the health benefits were all well worth the journey.' Jernigan now speaks to weight-loss groups and writer's conferences about his experiences and has another cookbook slated to be published shortly after the first of the year. Jernigan's first cookbook, which was never published, was a collection of traditional, unhealthy Southern fare and was about to be shipped off to his publisher when he collapsed and became seriously ill. After working hard and getting his life back on track, Jernigan decided to pull the Manuscript back and put together his healthy tips and recipes that helped him turn his life around. 'Losing to Win!' became an instant best-seller and Jernigan's story was featured in magazines and newspapers around the world. Now after successfully keeping the weight off and enjoying a higher degree of health, the author has decided to revisit the idea of a Southern foods cookbook, but this time the recipes will be a much healthier version. 'There's no need for Southern foods to always be deep-fried and heavy. Like all good regional cuisine they rely on fresh, seasonal ingredients, and a deft hand at seasoning,' Jernigan recently explained to Britains, The Guardian. 'Good Southern cooking incorporates many regional influences from old English cookery, to Cajon and Creole spices. It's not easy to define. Great Barbecue, cornbread and collard greens to Jambalaya and Gumbo. Southern cooking is all these and more! So how has life changed for Jernigan since losing the weight and beating his health issues? 'I have a lot more energy to get things done,' says the veteran writer. 'My writing work used to suffer a lot-I was always late for editorial deadlines and I'd drop a lot of really great writing projects because I was so freak'en sick and lazy. I can't tell you how many agents dropped me because of it. I don't have to do that now. I get things done and I'm always on time,' brags Jernigan. According to several news reports, the busy author has multiple books scheduled for release next year and has completed a screenplay for a production house. Jernigan is also in talks with a producer friend to host his own healthy cooking show on one of the cooking channels. And on a much more personal note one of Jernigan's social media pages (as well as a candid photo floating out their on the net) reveals that the author is romantically involved with a special someone who will remain nameless for this story. Jernigan's new book, 'Southern Cooking Made Healthy,' will become available early 2015 through Creative Partners Books, Amazon and Kindle. (more...)

Randy Jernigan to Donate a Portion of 'Stars' Book to Trevor ProjectRandy Jernigan to Donate a Portion of 'Stars' Book to Trevor Project
by BWW News Desk - Dec 16, 2014

Creative Partners Books announced earlier this year that author Randy Jernigan's 'fan book' series had been rebooted and will now include four celebrity biographical sketches under one cover. The author also recently took to his Facebook page to announce that he and his publishing house will donate a portion of the books earning to The Trevor Project, a hotline for LGBT, and other troubled teens in crisis. 'I believe in the organization and the great work that it does for our youth that may be hurting and need special help,' wrote Jernigan. The changes in the book series have regretfully prolonged the release date to early 2015, but company officials promise that the content of the Manuscript will be filled with inspiring information that the fans want to read about their favorite star. The first installment of 'Stars That Make A Difference' will feature biographical sketches of Daniel Radcliffe, Ellen Degeneres, Marie Osmond, and Taylor Swift. The book will be released through Creative Partners Fan Book series through Amazon's Kindle and paperback early 2015. (more...)
