    Lawrence Carlino’s book Imparts the Importance andSignificance of the Little Things — A Thought-Provoking Book of Poetries Written Over the PastDecades

    While it may seem small, the ripple effects of small things are extraordinary.”
    — — Matt Bevin

    LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 30, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Are all the little things trifling? Just a speck of dust within the galaxy? Are they simply just insignificant? Lawrence Carlino’s Between can give you an inkling of what really matters and that everything we thought was the most important may not be one at all. Between is a stunning compilation of various poetries written over the past five decades.

    PRESS RELEASE | LA BOOK FAIR 2022
    In one’s brief lifetime, there are a handful of moments of clarity and epiphany that define human condition-at-once. These moments are sometimes considered as something only trivial against the backdrop of a vast and ancient universe, yet so important to some on a more personal and deeper level.

    This thought-provoking book is perfect for wide-eyed curious-minded readers who have too much or too little time on their hands to ponder on even the smallest of things. These small things as we know of, be it a memory, experience, or happenings that may only a shrug-off situation to some might carry the biggest impact and life lessons that should remain with us for the years to come.

    The Journey of An Orphaned Girl During the Irish Potato Famine in the 1840s

    The book is a historical fiction story of unrivaled bravery shown by an Irish child named Rose O’Malley; orphaned by the infamous Irish potato famine in the 1840s.”
    — Ray Banister

    LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 30, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Author Ray Banister will be one of the featured authors in the upcoming Los Angeles Festival of Books 2022 with his published book titled An American Dream. The book is a historical fiction story of unrivaled bravery shown by an Irish child named Rose O’Malley; orphaned by the infamous Irish potato famine in the 1840s. She came to America alone, on a disease-infested famine era of uncontested bigotry and legalized slavery and ultimately dedicated her life to eradicating injustice.

    The famine went back to September 1845. Mostly healthy green leaves on potato plants suddenly turned black, curled, and then rotted. As fungal spores multiplied, cool breezes quickly spread that same unchecked blight to surrounding plants throughout all the
    potato fields in Ireland. It was great devastation making the whole of Ireland into a horrifying tribulation. In the next few years, more than a million Irish men, women, and children would die from mass starvation or from infectious diseases resulting from that mysterious plague and the lack of government intervention.

    “Excellent read! I thoroughly enjoyed this story. I felt transported to this time and really
    connected to the characters. This is a must-read.” — Amazon Customer Review.

    Ray Banister is a seventh-generation Irish-American who grew up in South Carolina, attended Clemson University before embarking on a 21-year career as a tool engineer, and then retired to start his own business manufacturing medical prostheses.

  • The Los Angeles Times Festival Of Books of 2022 presents, Where Is My Home?

    Can I Consider my House my Home?

    Sonic realized the world can be dangerous. He became unhappy, scared and lonely.”
    — Joan Groves

    LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 30, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Joan Romney Groves, a retired school counselor, reveals that there is no place like home in her great read-aloud book Where Is My Home?. Joan’s well-penned book shows the importance of knowing exactly where each person belongs and the universal need for acceptance and belonging. It shows how initial judgments can be substituted with empathy, understanding, and second chances but at the same time, a tender tale to open the door to discussions about what home really means and how determination can lead us to where our destination lies despite the detours and roadblocks we may find in our journey. “Groves has created a believable, meaningful saga of a little, lost kitten. Sonic is one of four siblings in the caring household of the Jakes family. Brooke and Danny adore the kittens—all but Sonic. He’s cute with soft, grey fur but not friendly or cuddly. He doesn’t like being petted. He hisses, growls, and even scratches the children when they try to play with him. When the time comes to find homes for the four kittens, no one wants Sonic, but a friend suggests a place in the country where several “wild cats” live. When they drop Sonic there, he jumps out and excitedly

    PRESS RELEASE | LA BOOK FAIR 2022

    explores his new surroundings. But left alone, he soon encounters enemies, including a smelly skunk. He begins to search for a home. Over the course of nine months, he makes his way back to the Jakes family, who are amazed to discover that he has grown tame and really wants to stay with them.” — The US Review of Books.

    The author bases this colorful offering on a true story, expressing her belief that children “learn empathy and character development” from such stories. Her own empathy on the particular subject matter is evident in the lost, confused, and combative kitten in her story. The situations she imagines for the wandering feline are suggestive where children can easily grasp the underlying message behind every situation Sonic finds himself in.
    “Confucius is credited to have said, "A journey of 1,000 miles begins with the first step." In "Where Is My Home," author Joan Romney Groves recounts an adventure of a kitten named Sonic who unintentionally embarked upon a 30-mile journey over a time period of 9 months to find its way home; which seems impossible yet is the basis of this true story.”

    Reviewed by Erica Diamond Joan Romney Groves, author of the must read-aloud book Where Is My Home? was an elementary school counselor for 23 years before her retirement. She received the 2004 Utah School Counselor of the Year Award. Joan also holds a BS (cum laude) from the University of Utah and a MEd from Brigham Young University.

    Joan is also a mother of six beautiful children and a grandmother of 28. She wants children to learn
    positive values by reading true stories. Joan also published the book The Antique Organ and Other
    Stories for the Gale History Center, as well as family histories.

  • The Los Angeles Times Festival Of Books of 2022 presents, The Apostles Methodology to Interpret Scripture

    What if you Realize that Most of the things you learned as a Christian are in blunder?

    The Apostles' theology prepares us for the Apostles Eschatology, we will not see the wrath of God.”
    — The Apostles Methodology to Interpret Scriptures

    LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 30, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Marcelino Esquilin’s The Apostles Methodology to Interpret Scripture explains how the contents drafted by the Apostles were instructed by Jesus of Nazareth. It is written pointing to a path, not a conclusion and this sets this book apart from other religious books.

    Marcelino’s text displays a unique approach to substituting Christianity; a scientific and analytical method to establish common faith among Christian devotees. Stemming from the knowledge of theology, the book suggests that interpreting scripture using Jesus of Nazareth’s message conveyed

    PRESS RELEASE | LA BOOK FAIR 2022
    through the words of the Apostles is the ideal methodology because there is no speculation. However, this book can be persuasive for those who are not devoted Bible students. The premise of the book is not to push readers towards a particular end goal, but rather focus on the process for believers to embody the word of the Apostles. And thus Jesus of Nazareth, in their daily lives.

    Each of the selected scripture references found in the book does more than just deliver the author’s message. They inspire, encourage, and give strength to the persevering believer whose light shines brighter with faith. This Bible study will apply to all readers because of its direct engaging structure combined with biblical verses and narratives that are delivered with such clear precision that it is near impossible to miss the message.

    The Apostles Methodology to Interpret Scripture depicts Marcelino’s strong understanding of the depth of his text and provides an extremely crucial component to piecing together each chapter; a series of questions that will serve as a guide for the believers and a list of key terms covered in it.
    Marcelino Esquilin (aka Marxel) was born in Rio Piedra, Puerto Rico, in July 1955. Marcelino was pursuing a master’s degree in Theology at Knox Seminary in Ft. Lauderdale while he was revising this book. He received his bachelor in arts, (Cum-Lauden), in Theology at Trinity International University in Florida. He and his wife, Sofia de la Rosa, procreated four kids during their 41 years of marriage and are now grandparents to two beautiful grandchildren and are
    expecting another grandchild!

    LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 30, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Author Dalton “Elijah” Garraway will be one of the featured authors in the upcoming Los Angeles Festival of Books 2022 with his published book titled JAH IS OUR GOD. A spiritual and religious book that has revealed and deciphered the correct name of the God of Creation. All indicators are there, and his reputation is immutable in the teachings. Several texts and books have been published as the true name of God.

    Many have suffered and are disheartened as some may not be factual, and some may be hard to prove.

    PRESS RELEASE | LA BOOK FAIR 2022
    The author shares that, “in the original Hebrew text, the name our Creator revealed as his personal, proper name has only four letters, all of which are consonants. Accordingly, it became known in the English language, the letters are YHWH or JHWH/JHVH...Further, many scholars agree that when anglicized, the name can be pronounced Jahweh. Jah is its constricted or shortened form. The HarperCollins Bible Dictionary clearly states that Jahweh/Jah is a substitute transcription of Yahweh.” Dalton “Elijah” Garraway grew up on the lovely Caribbean Island of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. He is married and has children. He was an educator and became a customs officer, then a businessman, now Rastafarian, and currently an author. As he was worshipping, Jah, he made a new nickname, “Elijah.” In 2008, moving forward with life’s pathway, he migrated to the United States.

  • Ted Baxter, Renowned Author & Stroke/Aphasia Survivor, Wins Best of Los Angeles Award - “Best Motivational Book - 2022”

    Ted Baxter

    LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, June 30, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Ted Baxter, renowned author & stroke/aphasia survivor, and his memoir, Relentless: How a Massive Stroke Changed My Life for the Better, wins the Best of Los Angeles Award - “Best Motivational Book - 2022”, according to Aurora DeRose, award coordinator for the Best of Los Angeles Award community.

    The “Best of Los Angeles Award” community was formed eight years ago and consists of over 7,600 professional members living and working in Southern California. It celebrates the best people, places, and things in Los Angeles with the slogan “No Ads. No B.S. Only the Best.”

    “The mission of the community is to celebrate the best of Los Angeles, and allow its community members to connect with other members who share the highest standards of quality and integrity,” expresses DeRose. "We're honored to include Ted Baxter and his memoir into our BoLAA family."

    Relentless is a 2019 Bronze IPPY Award winner in Autobiography/MemoirAmazon Best Seller in Biographies & Memoirs and is an incredible journey of determination and recovery.

    In 2005, Ted W. Baxter was at the top of his game. He was a successful, globe-trotting businessman with a resume that would impress the best of the best. In peak physical condition, Ted worked out nearly every day of the week. And then, on April 21, 2005, all that came to an end. He had a massive ischemic stroke. Doctors feared he wouldn't make it, or if he did make it, he would be in a vegetative state in a hospital bed for the rest of his life.

    But miraculously, that's not what happened. In Relentless, Ted W. Baxter describes his remarkable recovery. Not only did he live, but he is walking and talking again. He moves through life almost as easily as he did before the stroke; only now, his life is better. He's learned that having a successful career is maybe not the most important thing. He's learned to appreciate life more. He's learned that he wants to help people--and that's what he does. He gives back, volunteering his time and effort to help other stroke victims.

    Relentless is a wonderful resource for stroke survivors, caregivers, and their loved ones, but it is also an inspiring and motivating read for anyone who is facing struggles in their own life.
