  • KC Craichy’s Book The Super Health Diet Peaks at #3 on The Wall Street Journal’s Bestseller List

    Super Health Diet Cover

    The strong sales showing continues for this highly regarded natural health book.

    ORLANDO, FLORIDA, USA, August 18, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- A week after reaching the top sales spot on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, the book The Super Health Diet by KC Craichy is currently #3 on The Wall Street Journal’s bestseller list. It is also currently on the USA Today’s Top 100 list.

    Subtitled The Last Diet You Will Ever Need!, this book has been updated twice and remains a popular choice. A new generation of readers is being educated about benefits of superfood nutrition and is being encouraged to take practical steps toward achieving their health goals.

    The book became a bestseller for Craichy when it was first released in 2011 and a recent surge in demand pushed it back to the top of the sales charts on Amazon and Barnes & Noble last week. It was the top seller on Amazon among diet books and nutrition books and the top selling nutrition book on Amazon for Kindle. It was also the top seller among all eBooks on Barnes & Noble.

    The book goes through periods of increased demand as a result of Craichy’s speaking schedule. He is reaching new audiences all the time through podcasts, social media and in-person events where he shares a message of hope centered on wise eating. The Super Health Diet also reemerged as the top seller on Amazon and Barnes & Noble back in 2020 during the height of the pandemic as people took a renewed interest in nutrition and its role in a healthy immune system.

    The Super Health Diet takes a critical look at many of the most popular diets, exposing the pitfalls and detailing how they can leave the dieter vulnerable to gaining even more weight in the long run. Craichy worked with some of the top minds in the nutrition, medical, and fitness circles to develop a dynamic, no-nonsense approach to diet and health that is helping people of every age and every stage of health to supercharge their body, soul, and spirit.
    The book is the definitive work on diets and dieting and is widely acclaimed by a host of medical, nutritional, and fitness experts. Dr. Richard Lippman, who was a 1996 Nominee for the Nobel Prize in Medicine for his work in anti-aging, said it was, “The most remarkable nutrition book of the twenty-first century.”

    Other reviewers have said:
    “a blueprint for a lifetime of nutritional success”
    “improve your health, increase your resistance to disease, decrease your stress, slow aging and enjoy life to the fullest”
    “debunks many of the marketing schemes that take advantage of so many consumers”
    “a must-read for breaking the vicious cycle of disease”

    In addition to being a best-selling author, Craichy is a health researcher, recognized expert on natural health and sports performance nutrition as well as a sought after speaker on superfood nutrition, natural, integrative and alternative medical approaches to chronic diseases. He and his wife Monica are co-Founders of Living Fuel, the Leader in Superfood Nutrition. Living Fuel products are used around the world by everyone from the health-challenged to some of the world’s most recognizable athletes in team, individual, and endurance sports. He and his wife, Monica, have six children and cohost the popular Internet TV program LivingFuelTV.

  • A Love Letter to Lovecraftian Horror - A Return to Old School Horror Cool

    Kayla from The Brooding Muse Magazine

    The Brooding Muse Protagonist Kayla

    A love letter to Lovecraftian Horror, The Brooding Muse Magazine is now available for pre-order on At Diamond Comics - official release date Oct 19, 2022.

    The entire series is a love letter to simpler times and simpler comics!”
    — Patrick James (author of The Brooding Muse)
    HANOVER, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, August 18, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Discover an anthology-style Lovecraftian Horror waiting for us around the corner at the end of 2022.
    The Brooding Muse arrives at a perfect time for readers who want a return to old-school comics in a world full of convoluted stories, short story arcs, and poorly written (yet superfluously colorful) characters.

    A love letter to Lovecraftian Horror, The Brooding Muse is a dark breakthrough of the current normal for the comic world:
    - Various master storytelling authors and illustrators come together to craft each section of this dark anthology carefully.
    - Each issue delivers unique stories that carefully weave together an overarching story that astounds readers at every turn.
    - Meticulously formatted to make a return to old-school illustrated horror.
    - A gloomy Lovecraftian world where no character is safe.

    Set in an unforgiving world where the linchpin of vicious killers was a merciless despot known simply as The Brooding Muse. However, when the bind that holds this savage world together mysteriously vanishes, a rogue group of anti-heroes must band together to restore a sense of peace.

    What sets The Brooding Muse apart from other series in circulation is its nod to old-school and much-beloved horror anthology titles, such as Warren Publishing's Vampire Tales or Eerie. Readers will revel in constructing the entire picture of the Brooding Muse through each twisted puzzle piece that is each story.

    The Brooding Muse is now available for pre-order at Diamond Comics Previews Catalog, with an official release date of Oct 19, 2022.

  • Replace Your University Builds Waiting List for Multiple Programs After Customer Success Catches the Internet by Storm

    Replace Your University

    Replace Your University logo

    Replace Your University with Ryan Niddel and Kevin Nations

    Replace Your University

    Every program launched in 2022 has surpassed all expectations according to the CEO of Replace Your University

    If you want to move exponentially faster towards financial independence, or just pay your house off faster, I highly recommend RYM!”
    — Mike Jackson, client of Replace Your University
    GREENWICH, CT, UNITED STATES, August 18, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Replace Your University has surpassed new milestones after being recognized for multiple advancements and performance. This has culminated in a large demand for all RYU programs after client success has hit the internet by storm. This continues their legacy of exceptional client results, internal growth and development, and growing recognition in the industry.

    Replace Your University started in 2014 when Michael Lush used an ingenious strategy to accelerate the payoff of his mortgage in 3.5 years resulting in eventually sharing the strategy with others by publishing a book called “Replace Your Mortgage”. Since then, the company has grown exponentially primarily due to the incredible success clients consistently achieve (especially since most new clients come as referrals of previous clients). Recently, the company was highlighted in LA Newswire as a top young company helping homeowners.

    RYU has been applauded in multiple areas this year being recently recognized as the #3 mover and shaker in the financial education industry, being seen as shaking up the financial education industry and being noted for the rapid growth and development by company executives.

    It is interesting to note this has mostly happened organically as their reputation has grown and results from word-of-mouth have been catching on (specifically as it has caught wildfire across social platforms). The company’s hardcore focus on delivering top-quality help to only those who can implement and benefit from it has been at the core of their success (and their insistent refusal to let anyone become a client they can’t help). As a result, the average client saves just under $200,000 on their home – a program that pays for itself dozens of times over according to clients. It’s not hard to see why homeowners are ecstatic.

    The COO of Replace Your University, Matt Workman, recently stated this about how they go overboard when it comes to client satisfaction, “Really what we're doing is we are trying to service people to show them that there are things out there you can do better and different. I would say on average, as far as refunds go, maybe one to two per month is what we have (which is unheard of in this industry) and a lot of those are due to the person who doesn't qualify. We walk people through a process to make sure it’s going to work for them and if for whatever reason they can’t qualify we just refund them.”

    He then continued, “And it always makes me feel good when I receive feedback from our people and their responses. Almost completely across the board, they have the same results and they’re like, ‘We can't even thank you enough because it's literally the best thing we've ever done!’”

    Mike Jackson, a client of the Replace Your Mortgage program, had this to say recently about how they helped with his mortgage, “I bought the service they offered and have learned how to eliminate my mortgage at a much faster rate than those who pay additional payments, WITHOUT paying anything additional on my house each month. My required payment each month has even gone down! I've now leveraged my equity for a down payment on another income property which is building equity AND helping me pay down my house even faster! Their education is amazing. Those who don't actually take the time to learn and study how this is done are the ones on the page criticizing and not understanding the flexibility this method provides you. I can say that I have been directly called by the admins to answer some of my questions and support my financial goals by using the methods they teach. I have tried to educate my own children so that they can expedite the payoff of their homes as well, so they won't be dealing with a house payment as they approach retirement. If you want to move exponentially faster towards financial independence, or just pay your house off faster, I highly recommend RYM!!!”

    With the success of their programs to this point, RYU is maintaining course for an already explosive year of growth (having surpassed 2022 goals before mid-year). Multiple new programs have had startling success and are quickly gaining notoriety. Replace Your University looks to be on an amazing trajectory that has the industry taking note.

  • Bestselling author Susan Go models career success and a dedication to giving back

    Susan Go

    Asian Women Trailblazers Who BossUp Cover

    The technology executive created an Asian American employee resource group and services two nonprofits, one working with kids and the other with immigrants

    Know your purpose and know your value. Because no one can tell you that for you.”
    — Susan Go
    SAN FANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, USA, August 17, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Susan Go watched her immigrant parents model an incredible work ethic, working blue-collar jobs their whole lives to provide for their four children. She got the message: stability and financial security are the top priorities when it came to career choices. So she chose the up-and-coming computer science industry as her area of focus in college.

    Fortunately, she also liked it! Upon graduating with a degree in Information Systems, she found a position as a sales liaison that allowed her to combine her technical knowledge and skill with her natural passion for talking with customers and creating presentations. That was her first job out of college and she has made her whole career in that space, rising to Senior Director of Solution Engineering.

    Her other passion—giving back to the community—took a bit longer to reveal itself. She began to volunteer locally and discovered Touching Heart, an organization that helps kids select, plan, and host their own fundraising events and projects as a way to introduce them to philanthropy. “I’m a mother of three kids, and I believe that it’s important to expose our children to giving back at a young age,” she says. “It’s a mindset. When you get to see someone in a different situation it broadens your horizon, the way you look at the world, the way you appreciate what you have. Touching Heart’s mission is, yes, raising kids to give back, but ultimately it’s about raising the next generation to become compassionate leaders. Don’t we want a world where leaders think about more than just themselves or their bottom line?”

    Susan also gives back at work. In enterprise software sales, she did not see many other Asians in positions like hers. “I was always seeking ways to connect with other Asians because it would be great just to have someone else at work who has that shared perspective,” she says. So she made it happen, by launching an Asian American employee resource group for the D.C. Metro area. “When we started, it was only a few members. Now the organization has grown to over 160. It’s a dual mission: the professional development and support of the Asian American members, along with raising awareness of our cultures and informing our allies. It’s about advocating, being that voice in the room, connecting with others, and finding mentors. The professional development piece really relies on our allies. Because, again, looking in the space that I’m in there aren’t that many other Asians, much less Asian women.”

    Connect with Susan Go on LinkedIn and read more of her story in the upcoming book Asian Women Trailblazers Who Boss Up, a collection of inspiring interviews with Asian women who have broken the mold, overcome obstacles, and have a wealth of advice to share.

    Interview Questions
    and much more...

    We asked HailyAI which is the artificial intelligence model powering Satellite Writer to answer this simple question...

    "Is AI Making Online Business Easier? "

    Here is Satellite Writer's answer: (AI response begins...)

    The answer is yes.

    It has made online business easier for small businesses and entrepreneurs. Artificial Intelligence's use in marketing, sales, and customer service have made it easy for them to reach out to their customers and prospects. Using AI has also helped them to improve their conversion rate and increase their ROI.

    What are some of the ways AI can make business online easier?

    Let's take a look at these:

    1) Customer Service
    With the help of AI, companies can now create chatbots to handle all customer inquiries. These chatbots can understand the customer's language and provide relevant information about the product or service. They can also answer common questions such as "How much does this cost?" and "Do you have any special offers?"

    2) Marketing & Sales
    Marketing and sales are two processes that require human intervention. However, with the help of AI, marketers can automate many tasks such as creating landing pages, writing blog posts, designing email templates, etc. As a result, AI helps them save time and focus on other essential aspects of an effective marketing campaign.

    3) Analytics
    Analytics is one of the most critical activities performed by online businesses. With the help of AI, they can easily track and measure various metrics like bounce rates, page views, etc. In addition, AI operations help them to identify the areas where they need to improve their website content and design.

    4) Personalized Content
    Content creation and personalization are two of the most critical steps in the digital marketing strategy. With the help of AI, marketers can create personalized emails, landing pages, blogs, etc., which will resonate well with the target audience.

    5) Email Marketing
    Email marketing is one of the most effective forms of digital marketing. However, it requires constant efforts from marketers to keep up with the latest trends and changes in technology. With the help of AI, marketers can quickly build customized emails and send them to their subscribers.

    6) Social Media Management
    Social media management is another crucial aspect of digital marketing. Marketers need to stay updated with the latest developments on social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, etc. With the help of AI, they can manage multiple accounts simultaneously without having to spend hours every day doing so.

    7) Website Design
    Website design is another task that requires a lot of attention and creativity. However, with the help of AI, marketers can easily create responsive websites which will work across different devices.

    8) SEO
    Search engine optimization (SEO) is one of the essential strategies for digital marketing. With the help of AI, marketers can optimize their websites and get better rankings on search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc. In addition, AI Content makes it easier for their potential customers to find them.

    (AI response ends)

    "It's funny because when reading the response, I realize all these helpful AI operations are what our focus is at AI Exosphere," said Sal Peer, Founder of Satellite Writer

    All of the above tasks are part of AI Exospheres' larger HailyAI model, which currently powers Satellite Writer.

    About Satellite Writer
    Satellite Writer is a SaaS platform created by AI Exosphere. The cloud-based AI service allows anyone to create copy for any niche and use AI tools with simple voice or text commands. In addition, the platform includes a powerful editor and multi-language options and is powered by the leading-edge HailyAI model.

  • CHRISTIAN AUTHOR JUDY RENTZ SHARES THE LITTLE MIRACLES THAT GOD SHOWED HER IN HER BOOK

    FIGHTING to SURVIVE

    Author Judy Rentz pens the most painful days of her life in her book Fighting to Survive

    TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, August 17, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- For many people, pain is something that just happens, a part of life. Same with the Christian author, Judy Rentz, who believes that pain made and makes her stronger. And she tells her story in her book "Fighting to Survive."

    "Fighting to Survive" was published in December last year by Xulon Press, with different formats. The paperback has over seventy pages while Kindle has over fifty. And for every page, Rentz brings herself back to the very painful days she had endured because of pudendal neuralgia; starting from her search for anyone or someone who can take the pain away to finally finding help.

    And no matter her predicament, Rentz still believes that it is all no pain, no gain. And because she is very open about her spirituality, she does not shy away from openly sharing her prayer and church life in the book, which both guided her all throughout.

    “She is also honest about her doubts. She doesn’t just pray to God; she literally cries out to Him. She is also honest enough to admit how suicide has crossed her mind more than a time or two… She can sometimes feel like death is her only release,” says Pacific Book Review.

    Growing up exposed to a religious upbringing, Judy Rentz naturally cherishes life in a way that she sees light in every situation. Through this fact, she wrote "Fighting to Survive" with the hopes of bringing inspiration to those who have been and are experiencing the same type of pain that she did.

    An honest biography that touches on pain, survival, and faith, perfectly fitting for those in need of guidance, "Fighting to Survive" is available on Amazon.

  • Booky Call promotes legendary book dates

    Booky Call's logo

    Free book discovery app

    The Booky Call dating profile for "Pride & Prejudice"

    One "Legendary" Book Date

    Users’ right swipes gamify book discovery process

    We want to encourage a love affair between a book and a reader.”
    — Brant Menswar, Booky Call CEO
    WINTER PARK, FLA., UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, August 17, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Think of a book that is “legendary,” a classic like “Pride and Prejudice” or a new release like “Once Upon K-Prom.” What makes a book legendary — critical acclaim, sales or awards? Like most things related to beauty, readers say it may be in the eye of the beholder.

    Booky Call, a free book discovery platform cleverly disguised as a dating app, is giving users the opportunity to push their favorite titles to legendary status, one of several enhancements recently released to further gamify the book discovery process. The app utilizes the psychology and functionality of dating apps — including individualized dating profiles, left and right swipes, and direct messages — to connect readers to books.

    In the latest update, Booky Call added four new designations for books. While “New2Boo” is based on when a book’s dating profile is released in the app, there are three designations that depend on users’ right swipes. The more right swipes, the higher the designation. “Trending” denotes a title’s initial popularity followed by “Fan Fav.” The top designation, achieved by fewer than one percent of the books in Booky Call’s “date-abase,” is “Legendary.”

    Books achieving legendary status range from a YA mystery, “Six Months Later,” to the nonfiction self-help book “You Deserve this Sh!t” and Austen’s classic that introduced Mr. Darcy to the world.

    “We are determined to focus on the positive aspects of all of our potential book dates, so we intentionally avoided creating a toxic environment where users can leave scathing reviews or one-star ratings,” Brant Menswar, Booky Call’s CEO, said. “There are many outlets for trashing books. We’re different. We want to encourage a love affair between a book and a reader.”

    Booky Call starts by matching books to readers based on their stated preferences. Readers can scroll through the book’s answers to questions about their most attractive traits, what’s on their mind and what they’ll do on their first date. If the book has an audiobook version, an audio sample is also included. If there’s no connection, the reader swipes left. A right swipe leads to the book sending the reader a DM with links to date it: asking if they want to “meet in person” for the print version, “keep it digital” for the ebook or let the book “whisper in your ear” for the audiobook. Users can then click on a link and purchase the title in the chosen format from either Bookshop, Libro.fm or Amazon.

    Users can also browse for books by genre, title, author or descriptors known as tags. Booky Call’s “date-abase" includes fiction and nonfiction new releases as well as older titles — including classical literature — from major publishing houses, indie publishers and self-published authors.

    Given the proliferation of dating apps, it’s not surprising Booky Call has helped connect tens of thousands of active users across the globe to books by using the same structure and behaviors. Although the app only launched 10 months ago, it recently celebrated 750,000 book matches and anticipates topping one million matches before its one-year anniversary. The app is available in the App Store and Google Play.

    Sane Grace Novel Wins Gold Medal!

    One-on-One Interview with Award-Winning Author, Oliver Phipps

    We ventured all the way up to the Arctic Circle. We trudged through the Klondike mountains and panned for gold from the Yukon River.”
    — Oliver Phipps
    OKC, OKLAHOMA , USA , August 17, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- By Grant Colbert

    Fame, like money, eludes many that seek it. Yet, oddly enough, many that have little interest in it seem to attract it in abundance.
    Locating authors to interview is like finding Easter eggs on Easter Sunday. With a few connections, it becomes not a matter of finding one, but deciding which one will be worth the time and effort.

    The subtle dusting of fame for author Oliver Phipps began some years ago as one of his books, A Tempest Soul, had received recognition through an international book contest.

    Further investigation revealed a truly unique storyline that remined me more of the old fireside story tellers than a current formulated and predictable assembly line book.

    Thus began the pursuit of an interview with what I would find to be an elusive and unapologetically non-mainstream writer, Oliver Phipps.

    After a venture into standard and nonstandard channels of communication and requests, along with undisclosed challenges and labors indicative to the field of freelance reporting, I humbly present to you, the reader, the result of my endeavor; the Oliver Phipps interview; aka, Life Meets Fiction.

    Grant: “First, I would like to congratulate you on the recent Readers Favorite award for Sane Grace. I know it’s not your first award, so how do you feel about this one and is there any inside information you can relay?”

    Oliver: “Thank you, Grant. I’m honored to receive the award, and although I had hoped for a gold medal, I was still pleasantly surprised to get the news that Sane Grace had taken the gold medal in its category.
    “Sane Grace is one of those fun stories that seemed to just flow out as the plot developed. The idea was to keep Lieutenant Grace Wolfe as the ultimate ‘wild card,’ so to speak. That was the “fun” ingredient, and the reader ultimately has to decide how he or she feels about Grace’s character.”

    Grant: “I know you served as a paratrooper in the United States Army. But I’ve not found much information of your service time. Is that intentional, or?”

    Oliver: “It’s not necessarily intentional. I served in the 82nd Airborne Division from 1983 through 1986. When I arrived at Fort Bragg, my unit had just returned from Grenada. Life in the 82nd was fast-paced and exciting. I bought a chopper and a fast car, both of which were on my wish list. While not on maneuvers, I was generally living the soldier’s life.”

    Grant: “Great, now your book, “The House on Cooper Lane.” This is your most popular book, and if I’m not mistaken, it has hit number one in its category on Amazon. Is there any little extra morsel you can give us concerning your time in that haunted house? I’m sure our readers would love to hear anything else about the old Cooper place.”

    Oliver: “Well, to really grasp the story as an actual event, one must consider that the haunting occurred over the period of several months. So, there were many little things that happened after I realized I was not alone in the house. Some of these things were simple and would not have really added to the storyline, itself. One thing was me coming home from work to find half the cabinets in the kitchen area open. This happened on several occasions.”

    Grant: “That’s great! I would certainly be shocked to come home and find kitchen cabinets opened by themselves or….
    “So, there seems to be so much to touch on; you lived in a haunted house, served as a paratrooper in the army. Then you were in a rock band, or rock and roll bands? Can you give us a little on that?”

    Oliver: “Certainly, after leaving the army, I bought a set of drums. I then took drum lessons and went to various drum workshops and eventually began playing with bands. As I got better, I played with better bands, and in the mid-1990s, I focused on my music as I also began writing lyrics around this time. I had some success. But I realized it was a very competitive business and without lucking into a group that just naturally clicked and worked well together, it would be a longshot to make a living at it.”

    Grant: " Wow, very interesting. I know you’ve been a lot of places, but Alaska to me, is just so interesting in a wild sort of way. And if I’m not mistaken, you were… gold prospecting?”

    Oliver:” Yes, we ventured all the way up to the Arctic Circle. We trudged through the Klondike mountains and panned for gold from the Yukon River. It was quite an adventure, and one that spurred the tale, Tears of Abandon. After visiting ghost towns in the Alaskan outback, I realized there is very likely old ghost towns that have been lost to time and may only remain in the memory or old tales of the Alaskan people.”

    Grant: “I love that book. So, you explored old Alaskan ghost towns?”

    Oliver: "Absolutely, and I have an old bottle from one of those ghost towns. So, you see there is a connection there from my time in Alaska, as well as in the story.”

    Grant: “Amazing, that is exactly what I was hoping for with this interview, Oliver. I just want to thank you so much for your time. Can you give us any information on your next book?”

    Oliver: A little. I have several I’m working on. A dystopian novel with connections to Diver Creed Station. Also, a sci-fi trilogy that I hope to get out soon, or the first book at, least.”

    Grant: “Sounds super, I can’t wait. Thanks again, Oliver.”

    About Grant Colbert: Grant is a freelance writer who focuses on information pieces and interviews of interesting personalities. He loves to travel and spend time with his family and friends when not writing.

    The Strength of the Nation

    YORBA LINDA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, August 16, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- What makes a nation great is a question that many people ask but never quite get to the bottom of the answer.

    From Luisa Plancher’s perspective described in her book, "The Strength of the Nation," there is one answer that is oftentimes not mentioned or considered in the conversation. And that answer is “GOD”.

    "The Strength of the Nation," published in 2017, started as only a paragraph in Luisa Plancher’s unpublished book entitled The Angel of the Lord, written in the ’80s. Then, when President Donald Trump appeared on the political scene in 2016, indicating that he wanted to “Make America Great and Strong Again”, Luisa realized that she had written about this subject in her unpublished book, The Angel of the Lord. Therefore, she decided to expand her views and make a new book with the same title: “The Strength of the Nation”.

    Aaron, a reader, left a review of the book on Amazon saying, “I like how well-balanced each topic is covered, and how dedicated the author was in her research. Plancher is well-informed in both American and world history. This is displayed by how conversant she is with topical issues and how she discusses in-depth pertinent matters.”

    Luisa Plancher is an Italian School Teacher who moved to the United States after marrying an American citizen.
    Her American career consists of a degree in Political Science and a hefty amount of years in social work.

    "The Strength of the Nation" is her testimony of how far America, as a country, has developed since 1776, and how the history of this great country should be upheld, especially in schools. It is a reminder that strengthening a nation is possible when we prioritize our motivations and objectives.

    Read more about Luisa Plancher’s “The Strength Of The Nation” by purchasing her book on Amazon and looking at her page on YouTube.

  • DR. ALGIRDAS KANAUKA SHARES HIS STORY OF EXPERIENCES, ADVENTURES, AND SURVIVAL BEFORE WORLD WAR II IN HIS MEMOIR

    Raven’s Flight to Freedom

    Author Dr. Algirdas Kanauka writes about the World War II Lithuania to Soviet occupation in his book Raven’s Flight to Freedom

    YORBA LINDA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, August 16, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- There are all kinds of memories; those that are better kept to oneself and those that, when shared, are better. Through the latter, other people get to catch a glimpse of what has been and learn from them. And this is true for author Dr. Algirdas Kanauka as he tells the story of his life in his memoir, "Raven’s Flight to Freedom."

    "Raven’s Flight to Freedom" was published in February last year by Diamond Media Press Co. It has over three hundred pages worth of Dr. Kanauka’s recollection and interpretation of memories and perceptions back in the day, with its main theme being survival, starting from his life in Lithuania before World War II, and concludes in realizing new ideas from old memories.

    In the book’s author’s note, he wrote, “I was driven by desire to share experiences of journeying on this planet with my fellow travelers.”

    "Raven’s Flight to Freedom," according to an Amazon customer, is “told with intelligence, erudition, and wit by a brave man who truly loves both his native and his adopted countries”.

    Indeed, Dr. Kanauka has written the book so vividly and with so much respect and precaution towards those he has mentioned. He also kept relevant details, which elevates the reading experience. Truly is a one-of-a-kind veteran’s autobiography.

    Dr. Algirdas Kanauka, after all the adventures he has made memories from, is now retired and is currently residing and enjoying the warm waters of Southern California while freelance writing. And his memoir, "Raven’s Flight to Freedom," is available on Amazon.

  • Readers turning to tech to find books

    Free book discovery app

    Apps are the new book discovery platform

    Rather than browsing dating profiles and swiping right on men and women, our creative content team ‘ghostwrites’ profiles for books so users can swipe right on their next ‘book date’.”
    — Brant Menswar, Booky Call CEO
    WINTER PARK, FLA., UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, August 16, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Finding a good book used to require visits to brick-and-mortar bookstores or one’s local library then book discovery moved to websites and online retail. Now there’s an app for that — multiple apps, actually, with distinct hooks to connect readers and titles.

    Booky Call, a free book discovery platform disguised as a dating app, is finding great success by gamifying the process. CEO Brant Menswar explained: “We took the psychology and functionality of dating apps to bring books to life in a creative way. Rather than browsing dating profiles and swiping right on men and women, our creative content team ‘ghostwrites’ profiles for books so users can swipe right on their next ‘book date’.”

    Given the proliferation of dating apps, it’s not surprising Booky Call has helped connect tens of thousands of active users across the globe to books by using the same structure and behaviors. Although the app only launched 10 months ago, it recently celebrated 750,000 book matches and anticipates topping one million matches before its one-year anniversary.

    Booky Call users scroll through a book’s “humanized” dating profile before deciding to swipe left or right on it. A right swipe leads to the book sending the user a DM with links to date it: asking if they want to “meet in person” for the print version, “keep it digital” for the ebook or let the book “whisper in your ear” for the audiobook. Users can then click on a link and purchase the title in the chosen format from either Bookshop, Libro.fm or Amazon.

    More recent entrants into the book discovery field are taking a different approach. Tertulia is focusing solely on print books and creating new ways for readers to learn more about those titles from curated sources like book reviews and social media posts. Litsy is an app that encourages users to recommend books to other users, and Likewise helps readers find not only books but TV shows, movies and podcasts.  

    Other book discovery apps are specific to places where readers can find books. OverDrive and Libby both bring the library to users, allowing them to check out ebooks from their local library. Most brick-and-mortar bookstores have developed apps to facilitate online purchases. Practically all book discovery apps are free to download, but some have premium content that requires payment.
     
    Booky Call’s “date-abase" includes fiction and nonfiction new releases as well as older titles — including classical literature — from major publishing houses, indie publishers and self-published authors. Reading “Pride and Prejudice’s” dating profile is one of many five-star experiences users enjoy while finding their next book date.

  • Former NFL Player’s Book Says Inclusive Competitiveness is Key to Future U.S. Economic Prosperity

    Johnathan Holifield outlines a path toward improved U.S. competitiveness through diversity, equity and inclusion.

    ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA, UNITED STATES, August 16, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Some may only know Johnathan Holifield as a former Cincinnati Bengals running back, but since his stint in the NFL, he’s been anything but idle. Now senior vice president for new economies at Bitwise Industries, Holifield has gained important insight into America’s economic engine and why, he says, the country can’t win without strengthening at once inclusion and competitiveness.

    His book, The Future Economy and Inclusive Competitiveness: How Demographic Trends and Innovation Can Create Economic Prosperity for All Americans, provides a way for America to advance in the global economic competitiveness battle. The solution Holifield suggests is inclusive competitiveness: a framework designed to connect underestimated populations to the best opportunities in the U.S. economy, improving their performance and boosting national productivity.

    Holifield’s vision of the future economy is achieving more with the goal of getting “all hands on deck.” According to his model, this will happen only by including disconnected Americans, such as women, African Americans, Latinos and rural populations, in America’s economic competitiveness priorities and no longer relegating their aspirations to less productive areas of the economy.

    The book “offers a clear critique of how we got to such low productivity of underserved humans in the Innovation Economy,” Holifield said. “… and an even clearer, implementable path to achieving genuine economic inclusion and competitiveness.”

    The Future Economy and Inclusive Competitiveness is an important read for anyone who is passionate about community transformation, generational wealth creation and U.S. competitiveness, and interested in a proven framework to make them happen.

    Holifield’s unique background effectively carrying out inclusive competitiveness in the government and private sectors and more, has given him equally unique and actionable ideas. In regard to his early mover position, he says he “may be the first person to explicitly link improved U.S. global competitiveness to diversity, equity and inclusion.”
