  • Tony Caterina Releases “Autobiography of a Schizophrenic” Based on Personal Experiences of Self Discovery

    Book describes author’s journey through an alarming history of schizophrenia and drug-induced mental breakdown

    If the temptation is too great, I would warn them of abuse.”
    — Tony Caterina
    OLD BRIDGE, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, August 18, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Writer Tony Caterina, whose pen name is Vincent Macraven, today announced the release of his latest work, “Autobiography of a Schizophrenic” on Amazon.com. The author, who has a diagnosis of schizophrenia and has struggled with drug addiction and overdose, wanted to tell his story to help and inspire others. He believes his experiences will be relatable to those who have dealt with mental illness in themselves or with a loved one.

    Caterina said, “After having experienced a mental breakdown due to drug addiction, I made some substantial, positive changes to my life. It was time to stop depending on self-prescribed chemicals and finally acknowledge that I was in need of professional medical care to treat my schizophrenia. The decision was inevitable, as I had spent enough time in hospital psychiatric wards, actually three times, before I was willing to admit that I have a physical and mental illness. Doctors describe my illness as paranoid schizophrenia and I have now finally admitted that, for me, it is best to be treated by psychiatric experts.”

    In the book, Caterina wrote, “If the temptation is too great, I would warn of abuse.” And, he said, "The only time you hear about the mentally ill is when they are crossing a line, sometimes with a gun.” The author believes that the public needs to gain a more nuanced and accurate view of mental illness. Ignorance and stereotypes are harmful to everyone and impede effective treatment and recovery.

    He explained that he wrote the book, in part, to “clear the ghosts inside of my mind.” He added, “When I began to recover from my last mental crisis, I made a decision to increase my level of education and fluency by reading everything, including classics and the occult. The most important written works, their styles and cadences, have inspired me to write.” I studied literary classics and books on religion, philosophy and horror.” Caterina added, “I had been studying the masters for at least 30 years and have gleaned inspiration from those who can write.”

    Kirkus Reviews has given its critical nod to Caterina, calling him a relevant and talented author who is influenced by the classics. The site adds, “Macraven fell in love with the written word, finding inspiration from Poe, Rand, Sartre, Fowles, Hugo and many others. With all his works, he hopes the reader will be entertained and come away with a different perspective, invoking independent thought.”

    And Kirkus had positive things to say about Caterina’s previous books. “A Diverse Gathering” was called “a standout, frequently profound story collection,” while “Unsettling” was described as “fresh, original horror in three bone-chilling novellas.”

    Caterina is a writer, painter and musician and has written more than 50 short stories. He has 12 unpublished books of novels and short stories and is now working on a book of novellas. He designed and painted the cover art of two of his books.

  • On Free Love: Celebrating and Nurturing an Unstructured Community

    How John and Barbara Williamson defied conservatism in the name of sensual freedom

    PEMBERTON, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, August 8, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- From a simple farm girl to becoming “The Most Liberated Woman in America,” Barbara Williamson has lived a life quite out of the ordinary—boldly breaking barriers to pioneer a sexual revolution like no other.

    In The Journey of the Most Liberated Woman in America, Barbara shares her life of liberation at a time of extreme conservatism. Her memoir vividly pictures how she went against cultural edicts and embarked on a social change that promoted an alternate lifestyle. Together with her husband John, branded as “The Messiah of Sex,” they engineered the highly successful and controversial Sandstone Retreat in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

    In what became the hub of the sexual revolution, Sandstone Retreat was home to a community with an unstructured free love—spearheaded by John and Barbara themselves. The revolutionary couple shared a successful marriage of 47 years until John breathed his last.

    People admired John and Barbara’s loving relationship—the deep commitment and trust with each other while openly engaging in multiple relationships to meet their respective basic needs. This unconventional yet pleasing experience boosted John and Barbara’s spiritual and physical health beyond awe and wonder. Barbara’s dream was to enjoy a life of sexual freedom and achieve interdependence in relationships—and so it was. After all, Barbara does not go after the moniker “Godmother of Polyamory” for nothing.

    Sandstone Retreat afforded a sensual voyage. It was revolutionary—its inspiring movement has become widespread and continues to live on. And so, Barbara joins The Reading Glass Magazine in an interview as the success story that is The Journey of the Most Liberated Woman in America lands a feature in the magazine’s third issue coming this August. In their delightful conversation, Barbara shares how Sandstone Retreat became an avenue for “spiritual beings [to have] a human experience on planet earth.” The dialogue delves into Barbara being the woman she has lived and continues to be, highlighting her relationship with John and the moments they enjoyed and endured together.

    Look forward to Barbara’s feature in The Reading Glass Magazine to get to know more about her. You can also watch her book trailer and TV interview and grab a copy of her book at www.barbarawilliamson.com.

    "In these times of studied ignorance idiocy illiteracy and strutting ingnoramusses, it's a relief to read Daniel P Quinn's adroitly titled 'organized labor'.

    Quinn is adept at the written word as he is at the spoken word with all his theatrical ventures. Reading this collection you can almost hear the gentle strains of an operatic aria in the Italian parts and musicality is not absent in the other parts. A small book perhaps but rich in content and well worth taking on a short or long trip. "

    "organized labor" is a wonderful book. Specific and powerful. Others evoke old New York , the 1913 Paterson strike, and also issues we face today in the world since 9/11". Davidson Garrett

    We all know this by now.

    Paul Krugman could propose alternative economic strategies to end this charade. Emma Goldman said: "It's the organized violence at the top, that creates the disorganized violence at the bottom." It is truer now more than a century ago.

    Monuments essay:

    danielpquinn684 | Newark, NJ 6/25/20

    This is a wildly complex question, BUT history must be part of all community outreach or we will learn nothing. Locally, there is a restored version of Gustav Bourglan's Founders Monument now on the grounds of NJPAC in Newark.

    All the Founder's names were wasps but they were memorialized a century ago by the dominant population of Newark at that time.

    There are no Irish, Italian, German, Black or Jewish founders of Newark honored in this "monument". Old money still dominates so much of our culture. What do we do now as reparation for all immigrants and residents of Newark when they were omitted and now ?

  • For Immediate Release Love is Understanding: The Life and TImes of Peter Tork and the Monkees

    The cover of Love Is Understanding: The Life and Times of Peter Tork

    Peter Tork of the Monkees finally gets his own biography.

    NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ, UNITED STATES, July 31, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- When struggling folk musician Peter Tork (born Peter Thorkelson) won an audition to become a cast member of a television sitcom about a rock and roll group, The Monkees, it proved to be a mixed blessing. On the one hand, the television show was not only a big hit in the 1966-67 and 1967-68 seasons, but the manufactured group the Monkees released genuine records that sold millions and soared the charts. On the other hand, the gifted Tork was subjected to criticism and ridicule from the press because cynics considered the Monkees to be nothing more than a blatant ripoff of the phenomenally popular Beatles and because (initially) the group members were not allowed to play musical instruments on their own records. To make things even worse, Tork played a nitwit on the show. People wrongly assumed he was the same buffoon off the air when in fact he was an intelligent and sensitive human being. And when the show was cancelled and the group broke up, Tork became a pariah in the show business industry.

    Now Sergio Farias's Love and Understanding: The Life and TImes of Peter Tork and The Monkees reveals all the highs and lows of the whole story. This brand new book enlightens readers not only on the authentic talents of Peter Tork- both as a musician and as an actor- but also the significant role his group the Monkees played in pop music and in television comedy. It is an amazing tale of an individual who underwent personal and professional tribulations but who ultimately endured and is still remembered and cherished in popular culture today. And this book should be cherished by anyone who gets the opportunity to buy and read it. It is now available in paperback at https://bearmanor-digital.myshopify.com/products/love-is-understanding-the-life-and-times-of-peter-tork-and-the-monkees-paperback?_pos=1&_sid=95a1b3740&_ss=r and in hardback at https://bearmanor-digital.myshopify.com/products/love-is-understanding-the-life-and-times-of-peter-tork-and-the-monkees-hardback?_pos=2&_sid=95a1b3740&_ss=r

  • Academy of Greatness & Excellence Acquires Former Neumann Prep High School Property

    AGE School 2014-2015

    AGE School 2017-2018

    AGE School 2017-2018

    AGE School 2018/2019

    RIDGEFIELD PARK, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, July 24, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The Academy of Greatness and Excellence (AGE) is pleased to announce that the School Board has completed the purchase of the largest real estate property to be owned by an Islamic educational organization in New Jersey. In less than one year after being approved for its potential campus in the Temple Emanuel- Paterson NJ, AGE has purchased the former Neumann Prep High School building in Wayne, NJ. The property is about 25 acres, with a 56,000 sq.ft. high school building, chapel, rectory, and athletic field.

    The purchased property has been owned by the Diocese of Paterson since 1965. The rectory and athletic field are leased to TSF Academy until July 2023, with no renewal option. The high school building was leased to the Islamic Education Foundation (IEF) for the last 9 years with no option to renew.

    The School Board of AGE was informed that the Diocese of Paterson was actively trying to sell the property and was no longer interested in any long-term leases. A few developers were interested in buying the property to turn it into an apartment building or a senior citizens facility. The AGE Board members believed that they were morally obligated to secure the building and maintain it as a school for future generations. The lack of proper educational facilities is the most challenging part of attracting parents and students to Islamic education. The scarcity of the real estate inventory and the difficult, costly, and long process of transforming a commercial building into a school due to the building codes and zoning ordinances represent an overwhelming and sometimes an impossible process.

    “At this point, our main concern is to secure this beautiful building for educating our children in such an adequate facility regardless of which organization is running the operation. We are grateful to Allah (SWT) for being able to complete this large financial transaction without asking the community for help or resorting to fundraisers, which is something AGE has never done during its existence,” said Wahid Melook, the Chief Financial Officer of AGE and one of its founders.

    “For the last few years, AGE has a cooperative and productive relationship with the IEF, which is a pillar of Islamic education in New Jersey. Unfortunately, due to the confidentiality agreement that was imposed on all parties involved in this transaction, we did not get the opportunity to discuss any future plans with the IEF. However, during the purchase process, we have worked diligently with the Diocese to secure the renewal of the IEF’s lease until the end of the 2022/2023 school year. Unless the IEF decides to move Al-Ghazaly High School back to its original building in Teaneck, which will be available for 2023/2024 school year, we anticipate that the IEF will continue leasing the Neumann Prep High School building, and hence AGE will ensure that the IEF’s lease is uninterrupted. If that will no longer be the case, AGE will expand its operation and utilize the purchased building as an additional AGE school campus. In all cases, and pending the Wayne Township approval, AGE plans to redevelop the rest of the property for recreational and community purposes,” Wahid Melook continued.

    Dr. Hammad Choudhry, the Vice-Chairman of AGE stated, “Although this step seems reactionary, it is in line with the AGE vision, and it is necessary to avoid a situation that may negatively impact future generations of Muslim students. AGE’s vision is to provide affordable high quality Islamic education that combines the “Greatness of Character and Excellence of Knowledge” motto that the school holds so dearly. This vision was never limited to a certain city, county, state, or even a country.”

    AGE is currently serving about 500 students, and for the last five years the enrollment closed within days of opening the process, with about 150 students on the waitlist. “It is very important to take advantage of any opportunity that comes our way to increase the ability of accommodating students who seek Islamic education, while strengthening the academic, character building, and athletic programs in Islamic Schools,” said Dr. Abdeslem El Idrissi, AGE Board member.

    The Chairman of the AGE Board, Dr. Rashed Rashed, also added, “The unity of the AGE community, the support of the parents, and the dedication of the administration and staff are the major factors of the continuous success of AGE. Securing such a property to educate future Muslim generations is a dream come true. I have been involved with Islamic education for the last 35 years, my four children were all educated in Islamic schools. Having an adequate and proper school building was never attainable due to the limited resources and the financial burden. It is really phenomenal that AGE was able to acquire this property without overwhelming the parents and the community with fundraisers and donation requests despite being a not-for-profit organization.”

    “Within a very short period, AGE has witnessed an exponential growth in student enrollment and facility expansion; nevertheless, what’s most remarkable is that within this time, we have gained the respect and trust of the AGE parents, students and staff as well as the surrounding community, Muslims and non-Muslims alike. At our Ridgefield Park campus, we’ve had a great relationship with St. Francis of Assisi (Archdiocese of Newark), and we anticipate having an equally wonderful experience with the Diocese of Paterson at our new location in Wayne. We look forward to building strong bonds with the local community and reaching out to all Neumann Prep alumni to build up much needed bridges in our society,” said Iman ElDessouky, the Principal of the Academy of Greatness & Excellence.

    Academy of Greatness & Excellence has become the fastest growing and one of the most successful Islamic Schools in New Jersey during the last ten years. AGE will continue to honor its commitment to providing quality and affordable Islamic Education for current and future generations regardless of the time and place.

    Denali Mountain

    Denali Mountain

    ~ The Goldfield Trilogy – Book 3 ~

    Artfully exciting and compulsively readable Gordon’s narrative has an easy swing to it and his dialogue is pitch-perfect”
    — Book Viral review

    PARK RIDGE, NEW JERSEY, USA , July 9, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Denali is the eagerly, anticipated conclusion to Neil Perry Gordon’s Goldfield Trilogy. This latest adventure begins in the autumn of 1901, when our protagonist—Percy Hope, ventures off to New York City’s Lower East Side in search for his six-month old son Walter, and his mother, the fugitive Peggy Greenburg, Percy’s love interest and antagonist from book two—Cape Nome.

    ​Along the way, Percy stumbles upon an intriguing journal left behind by the late Magnus Vega, who had tragically drowned a year earlier in the Bering Sea. This detailed account chronicles Magnus’s adventure into Alaska’s unforgiving wilderness, along with a cryptic map, that sends Percy and his best friend Liam upon a whirlwind quest, where they must track down a lost fortune of gold, out maneuver notorious gangsters, and decipher metaphysical mysteries of what happened to Magnus within the glorious ice caverns dwelling under North America’s tallest peak—Denali mountain.

    ​Denali is the solid conclusion to the Alaskan adventures of Percy Hope who meets an exciting cast of characters throughout the three novels, including the infamous lawman Wyatt Earp, and abides by the timeless advice of his mentor Jack London, who had proclaimed—You can't wait for inspiration. You must go after it with a club.

    Denali — Review by D. Donovan, Sr. Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

    As the third and final book of a trilogy, Denali: The Alaskan Adventures of Percy Hope holds the promise of resolution to the story, which is set in the early 1900s. Percy Hope is on his way to New York in search of his missing son Walter and his fugitive mother, Peggy Greenburg.

    This mission is diverted when he stumbles upon the journal of former friend Magnus Vega, who drowned a year earlier in the Bering Sea. It chronicles a voyage of discovery and riches that promises the same to Hope and his best friend Liam. They decide to travel into this uncharted wilderness, map in hand, for certain riches and adventure.

    The story's action and adventure ramps up from the moment the toy boys deliver Magnus's legacy (six pieces of gold) to George Magnus, a grieving father who appears to be a drunken mess.

    The duo uncovers a journal of mystery and promises, quickly attracts the attention of the nefarious Diamond Jim, faces George's disappearance with the gold, and embarks on a journey that soon becomes one of not just gold-seeking fever, but metaphysical revelation.

    Readers seeking either a historical action piece or a tale of riches won't expect this injection of spirituality, but Neil Perry Gordon realistically portrays its rise, possibilities, and impact on Hope and Magnus's lives as a cave exploration turns into a quest for proof of an unimaginable spiritual realm.

    Gordon moves between Hope and Magnus with first-person descriptions that juxtapose the journal entries of the past with Hope's present-day obsession.

    The atmosphere of the times comes to life as these events evolve, from San Francisco and New York to Knik, Alaska and beyond. One reason why Gordon's story is so vibrant and realistic is the observations and experiences of the social milieu of the late 1800s. Gordon weaves this atmosphere so deftly into dialogues and reflections that readers absorb the feeling of the times without even thinking: “We used to live in a nice neighborhood, on Taylor Street,” he began.

    “Yes, I know it,” I said with a nod. “It’s on the waterfront where fishermen sell their catch.”

    “That’s right. Father worked the docks and Mother sold fish from the stalls.”

    “What happened to them?” I asked.

    “They were killed,” Emile said softly. “I watch them both die.”

    As Hope comes full circle in many ways, readers will find the story completely engrossing as he returns to his original quest with newfound wisdom.

    Yes, Denali: The Alaskan Adventures of Percy Hope represents the concluding volume to a trilogy that will primarily attract prior readers of Hope's adventures. But it will also appeal to newcomers with its ability to build upon past events while moving forward into the next phase of Hope's life.

    Libraries strong in fiction that holds a strong historical backdrop but comes to life with action and adventure, especially those interested in turn-of-the-century Alaskan backdrops, will find Denali: The Alaskan Adventures of Percy Hope a solid acquisition that is highly recommended for its unique brand of action, adventure, and character evolution.

    FIVE STARS

    “…But I'm not sure what drew me to pick up this book. And after finishing it, I realized that I would have missed out on a wonderful book if I hadn't chosen it. It was a wonderful adventure novel written by a brilliant author. The plot was well-developed, and the characters were fantastic. I found all of the characters to be really relatable and enjoyable. In this work, the turns and twists, the pacing, the grammar, and the fluency were all excellent. I have to say that I thoroughly liked every minute of reading this...” Amazon reader review

    FIVE STARS

    “This is the final book of the Goldfield series. I love old stories, especially ones from back in more "physical" times. The novel has a fascinating story that a newly discovered goldfield can provide. It shows the conclusion of the claims, greed, fights, poker games, and all the traits of gold diggers out to make a fast buck. Further, the action scenes and the intrigue make the book a page-turner. The way the author blends historical facts and fictional escapades is brilliant along with such colorful characters. He shows a deft hand weaving a yarn that keeps the reader hooked until the last page…” Amazon reader review

    FIVE STARS

    “This is book 3 of the Goldfield trilogy, but a new reader can pick it up and still follow the story without reading the previous two novels. It includes many interesting, engaging, well-developed characters and historical references that add great depth to the story. It offers a sweeping view from New York City's Lower East Side in 1901 to the ice caves under Denali Mountain in Alaska. Fans of Cape Nome and Hope City will find this book particularly interesting…” Amazon reader review

    SOMERDALE, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, June 16, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Prime Solutions, the publisher and marketer for Cliff Ratza’s “Lightning Brain Series,” has earned readers’ praise for every book in the series. And audio books figure prominently in their assessment, for which Whitney Ann Jenkins is

    According to John Kane, Prime Solutions Director of Marketing, “We recently learned that Whitney won the audio book award. And we knew over four years ago that she had what it takes when we chose her to be our “Lightning Brain Series” voice.

    performing. And that led to her becoming an actress, musician, writer, and book narrator. Having lived and explored all over the world, she is now based in California.

    Mr. Kane added, “We always plan our audio book schedules far enough ahead so Whitney can be our narrator. We want to keep her and Electra working together, and we believe our audience will like that too.“

  • Liberating an Alternate Lifestyle

    Barbara Williamson’s Unstructured Free Love Community

    PEMBERTON, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, June 9, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The late 60s was a time of extreme conservatism, but Barbara Williamson was one of the bold few who burst the conservative bubble in the name of sensual freedom. From her humble beginnings to being celebrated as “The Most Liberated Woman in America,” Barbara’s boldness in choosing an extraordinary life of love and adventure is vividly pictured in her profoundly penned, mesmerizing memoir, The Journey of the Most Liberated Woman in America.

    Barbara Williamson was born in 1939 and grew up on a farm in Missouri. After graduating high school in Chamois, she moved to sunny California and pursued a career in insurance sales. This offered her unlimited earnings without the discrimination of being a woman. Barbara peaked in a male-dominated company, but this did not afford her happiness.

    Barbara needed a change that happened when she met and wed John Williamson, labeled as “The Messiah of Sex.” Together, they engineered the beautiful, then-controversial Sandstone Retreat. This fascinating sanctuary provided a ticket for members to join a sexual voyage; all sensual, sexual and pleasurable. Fifty years later, still an unforgettable experience remains in their lives. Barbara is the godmother of Polyamory, inspiring a movement that has become widespread in the world. Sandstone Retreat afforded Barbara a purpose in life, leading people into an alternate lifestyle where sexuality is honored and liberated rather than boxed in conservative ideology.

    Sandstone Retreat became outrageously popular, which made Barbara and John darlings of the media as outlets clamored for interviews. It was known as the hub for the sexual revolution that hosted a multitude of members and a whopping flock of visitors.

    The Journey of the Most Liberated Woman in America chronicles the extraordinary life that Barbara Williamson has inspiringly lived. Discover Barbara’s daring move—defying norms and pioneering a sexual liberation movement. Grab a copy of The Journey of the Most Liberated Woman in America. Available on www.barbarawilliamson.com.

  • GBA and Ulatus Partnership Ensures More Books are Available in More Languages

    New Partnership Between Global Book Alliance and Ulatus Ensures More Books are Available in More Languages for Young Children Around the World

    The GBA is thrilled to be working with Ulatus. Now, we can make even more online titles accessible to children, and increase the diversity of languages in which books are offered.”
    — Scott Walter, Deputy Chair of the Alliance
    NEWARK, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, June 9, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- A new partnership between the Global Book Alliance and Ulatus, a global translation agency, will ensure books in the Global Digital Library are available in ten more languages to support children’s early learning needs. Together this will ensure greater access to quality books that children can use to learn to read, read to learn, and develop a love of reading.

    Building on a core belief that literacy is a human right and mutual aspirations to ensure that children have access to books in their own languages, this cross-sectoral partnership will further global and national literacy goals and support a culture of reading for young children with their families, teachers, and communities. With a goal of up to ten books translated each month, books will be available across new languages with an initial focus on French, and further including Hindi, Bengali, Nepali, Vietnamese, Thai, Bahasa Indonesian, Spanish and Arabic. The translations work will also support language translations in mathematics textbooks which will support greater opportunity for engagement in this subject.

    “The Global Book Alliance is thrilled to be working with Ulatus to expand the Alliance’s reach and relevancy through the power of language and localization,” said Scott Walter, Deputy Chair of the Alliance. “With the benefit of Ulatus’s translation services, the Global Digital Library can now make even more online titles accessible to children and youth and increase the diversity of languages in which the books are offered. We look forward to a long and productive partnership in service to readers worldwide.”

    This is the first strategic partnership for the Global Book Alliance that builds on the need for greater access and diversity in the languages of books available through the Global Digital Library. Currently, more than 6000 books are available in more than 90 languages with more added and translated every day.

    “Ulatus looks forward to providing free translations of books for children in developing countries through this collaboration. While bringing education and fun stories to these children is key, we also believe that giving back to the global community should be an integral part of running any successful business” said Shilpa Mittal, CEO of Ulatus. “GBA and Ulatus will be translating several books over the next few months and we look forward to building this collaboration for a long time to come.”
