Fallen Virtue Book Cover

Sunken Restaurant Cover

Publisher announces new slate of books available for both distribution and licensing/development

CLEVELAND, OHIO, USA, December 29, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Operating a small publishing firm during a global pandemic isn’t easy, but Cleveland based ATBOSH Media Ltd. has been churning out a steady stream of content all year long.

In the world of poetry ATBOSH has released: “In the Garden of Old Age” by Nina Gibans, with photography by Abby Star, a series of poems about memory – collected ideas from a rich life with continuous interactions — ideas and people; “The Sunken Restaurant and Other Verse” by Philip Taylor, a light-hearted but incisive collection of comic verse written during the 1980’s; “Yamamba’s Mountains” by Linda C. Ehrlich, inspired by the medieval-period Japanese Noh play Yamamba, and by Ohba Minako’s short story “Smile of a Mountain Witch” which contemporizes the Yamamba legend; and “Encore: A Collection of Verse & Song Poems” a collection of poetry and songs written by Marjorie E. Potter from 1969 to 2009, Marjorie passed away in April 2020.

On the more narrative side of things, Publishers Weekly said of RJ Benson’s “Fallen Virtue (Of Beasts and Buzzards Series Book 1)” that “Benson’s well-crafted story and dynamic relationships make for a promising series opener.” Angels, demons, love, ruin, and musicians in Cincinnati, Ohio, “Fallen Virtue” is a “steamy debut paranormal thriller offers a unique interpretation of angelic lore.”

“The Life of Frederick Maehle from His Memoirs” by Gerda Freedheim is the story of Frederick “Fritz” Maehle who kept a journal from 1913 to 1940. A story of survival of a family devastated and fragmented by World War I, then the Great Depression, and finally WWII.

“No Life But This: A Novel of Emily Warren Roebling” by Diane Vogel Ferri is the story of a remarkable woman who lived from 1843 to 1903, and whose accomplishments would seem unbelievable if they were not true. She was an ardent feminist who was well ahead of her time and served as the liaison and field supervisor for the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge.

While working on his upcoming text “Discovering Digital Humanity” (coming Summer 2021), author and educator Tom Haymes pulled out all of the stops to write “Learn at Your Own Risk: 9 Strategies for Thriving in a Pandemic and Beyond” to address educational issues during the global pandemic.

Popular Cleveland area cooking instructor Judi Strauss has released “Judi Strauss’ Big Red Cookbook”, comprised of 24 mini cookbooks and is over 600 pages of do-it-yourself culinary goodness.

Upcoming Releases

ATBOSH Media Ltd. is proud to announce an extended agreement to publish and republish the works of Nina Freedlander Gibans. This includes the “yet to be published” poetry books “Coins in the Fountain” and “A Festival of Friends” as well as “Darling Nina, Love Jim” – the collection of love letters from her late husband written from 1954 to 1956. This agreement also includes the reprinting of the poetry books “18 Gardens and their Gardeners” and “And So I Must Imagine” as well as the very important non-fiction references “The Community Arts Council Movement: History, Opinions, Issues” and “Bridges to Understanding Children’s Museums” both long out of print.

Nina’s ever popular “Celebrating the Soul of Cleveland” has been recorded as an audiobook by her grandson and is currently in post-production. “A Bird in the Deep: The True Story of the USS Partridge” has been narrated by the author James Christopher Krouse as an audio book and is also in post-production. Sunk during the Battle of Normandy, the USS Partridge may have inspired Herman Wouk’s World War II novel, The Caine Mutiny.

Old Favorites

Even a publishing company can have their own favorite books.

“Albert: An Autobiography” by Albert Borowitz was written when Al was 13 but published when he was 87 – a light and precocious read.

“Tales from the Locker Room: An Anecdotal Portrait of George Szell and his Cleveland Orchestra” by Lawrence Angell and Bernette Jaffe still delights everyone who reads it.

“Man of the World: Book 1 of The Odyssey Expedition” by Graham Hughes. Graham is the only person to have visited every country in the world without flying. While on his journey he presented the travel series “Graham’s World”, which was commissioned by National Geographic, produced by Lonely Planet, distributed by BBC Worldwide and broadcast in over 50 countries around the world. Book 1 earned him a coveted Kirkus Starred Review (and they named it one of 2018’s best books of the year) and the audio book is narrated with joyful enthusiasm by Graham himself. “Man of the World” is a must read! Graham is currently working on books 2 (and 3).

“The Present Past” by Leonard Ross is a spy thriller set in the 1960s and involves set pieces all over the world. Leonard Ross really viewed himself as the Jewish Ian Fleming and the book is a real page turner!

Agency Press

As an Agency Press, ATBOSH Media Ltd. also serves as the literary agent for both the written work as well as their derivative works including television and film rights for most of the books they publish.

Larger publishing houses interested in publishing or distributing the work or production companies interested in optioning the work should contact Jared Bendis directly at jared@atbosh.com or call 216-288-6349.

Many of the authors are available for interviews and speaking engagements, virtually, of course.

Based on Richard Rossi’s Hit Novel, ‘Canaan Land’ Is an Instant Classic Religious Film For Everyone

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, December 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Every now and then a film comes along that changes everything. Religious films are often stigmatized as only appropriate for a particular demographic, but a current 2021 Oscar entry is taking what is typically thought of religious films, and flipping it on its head. Based on Richard Rossi’s hit novel, Canaan Land is a feature dramatic film about a consummate charismatic con man who takes advantage of those with genuine faith. The film dramatizes the types of counterfeit tactics used by some popular televangelists today, shedding light on the truth.

Written and directed by Eternal Grace’s president, Richard Rossi, Canaan Land is a 21st Century telling of the archetypal Elmer Gantryesque story. The story follows the journey of Brother Billy (Richard Rossi), a deceitful con man who preys on the faith of congregations, and Sister Sara (Rebecca Holden), a female evangelist and singer who is indeed a sincere Christian. Contrasting the two characters brings to light the apparent differences between genuine faith, and “faith for a show” or ulterior motives designed to deceive.

The lost preacher has a true “come to Jesus moment”, as he falls for Sister Sara, realizing that his con is no longer a game, and there is much more at stake. Exploring themes of deceit, love, faith, and redemption; Canaan Land inspires each viewer to take note of the real purpose of their life and their faith.

Featuring celebrity cameos such as Lynda Carter, Cindy Williams, Sally Kirkland, Dead Kennedys, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and many more, Canaan Land is praised for being “a religious film for the rest of us”.

Through Richard Rossi’s brilliant leadership and direction, Canaan Land is truly breaking the stigma that religious films cannot be entertaining for a secular crowd, while still pursuing religious messaging.

Through proof of concept, dedication to the craft, and unwavering commitment to bridging the gap between religious and secular audiences; Richard Rossi’s purpose-driven vision has come to fruition with the end-of-year release of Canaan Land. The film was exhibited for a week of drive-in screenings in Los Angeles and Miami and will be streaming in multiple platforms within two weeks.

Voting members of the Academy of Motion Pictures for Oscar nominations are eligible to see Canaan Land free through an unlisted video link. Email a picture of your Academy I.D. to richardrossilive@gmail.com to receive the film link for your consideration for Best Picture, Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Actress (Rebecca Holden), Best Actor (Richard Rossi), Supporting Actor (Isaac Bar-jonah), Best Supporting Actress (Jozy Pollock, Rosetta Walker), and Best Song (A Much Much Greater Love, Vagabond, Canaan Land and Street Preachin’ Man).

Richard Rossi penned the script “Canaan Land” to expose fake preachers. Televangelists are trying to ban his film

I refuse to let my critics define me or my movie, I will finish Canaan Land and show it to all willing to watch. They help me because they compliment Canaan Land as worthy of being talked about.”

— Richard Rossi

HOLLYWOOD, CA, USA, December 23, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Richard Rossi was a maverick minister in Pittsburgh when he discovered televangelists faking miracles for money. He vented his anger with writing. Rossi journeyed from scripture to script, writing “Canaan Land” a novel about a con-man preacher who falls in love with a sincere Christian and repents of fleecing the flock.

After decades of staging the story as a play, and a dream of making it into a movie, “Canaan Land,” directed by Rossi, is an entry in the 2021 Oscars. The drama stars Knight Rider actress-singer Rebecca Holden as Sister Sara and Rossi playing guitar-playing preacher Brother Billy.

The Academy Awards is Hollywood’s most prestigious award. Since 1927, nominees are selected by members of the Academy of Motion Pictures.

“Canaan Land,” though made with volunteers on a shoestring, is on the lips of insiders predicting its David challenging Goliath, giving big-budget films a run for Oscar gold.

Theater closures and release delays made the state of this year’s Oscar race unusual, but the race is on to make the 2020–21 awards season exciting. One of the changes is a rule that allows streaming movies that had planned theatrical releases eligible.

Rossi released “Canaan Land” as a novel that rocked the religious world, exposing fraudulent preachers, and is the basis for the film.

Canaan Land is a modern telling of an “Elmer Gantryesque” story. The plot revolves around Sara’s redeeming Billy, who turned her online ministry into a Tinseltown racket.

The story contrasts Billy’s focus on offerings with Sara’s genuine faith. The intention is to show the authentic by exposing the counterfeit. Rossi said, “Some are upset about my movie for exposing the fake preachers, but the truth shall set us free.”

The novel Canaan Land is available in paperback, Kindle, and audiobook. Proceeds are used to finish the film.

Christianity Today reported that the film’s office received messages of support as well as opposition from groups wanting to stop the film owing to its subject matter.

“Sister Sara is motivated to serve God and people,” Rebecca Holden said. “Billy is more self-motivated. We must keep our eyes on God and have discernment in choosing spiritual leaders.”

Richard Rossi’s filmography includes a film about evangelist Sister Aimee and Baseball’s Last Hero, about baseball superstar Roberto Clemente.

“Canaan Land” is set for a release by year-end in time to qualify for awards.
