Inspirational Voice Finally to Reach the Public

In the United States, there are less than 200,000 cases of uterine cancer per year, which makes it a rare form of cancer.

San Antonio, TX – USA, June 06, 2019 — Angelique S. Jones battled this rare cancer for exactly one year. In spite of her illness, “Angelique could always be found sharing her wisdom and knowledge with family, friends, and colleagues,” says her sister Anita Jones.

Even throughout her sickness, “Angelique always encouraged other people. She continued to pray for others, minister to them, and share wisdom and knowledge from her amazing journey.” Angelique would help those around her to work through personal issues, create business plans, and even help them to determine their purpose in life.

Anita explains that “Her passion was helping young women.” Angelique found one outlet for doing that professionally through her work in higher education. She served as the Associate Director of Admissions at Ursuline College, located in Pepper Pike, Ohio.

Angelique passed in 2014, at the age of 35—but even in passing, she found a way to continue guiding and encouraging her loved ones.

Angelique was not only courageously fighting her battle with cancer, but she was also working on writing a book during her sickness. “She finished writing it four months before she passed away,” Anita explains, “and I promised my family that I would get access to it and publish it. I was so inspired by my sister. She was my hero. This is my way of making sure that her legacy carries on.”

Although it took Anita several years to access the book, now, it will finally be made available to the public. The book chronicles Angelique’s experiences with dating, her career, and her ministry. Angelique shares her own spiritual revelations in order to help others with their spiritual life too. The book has already brought joy to Angelique’s family, and their goal is for it to impact the lives of others as well.

Publisher Lisa M. Umina comments, “We are excited to be making this truly inspirational book available. Angelique’s story will help others to reflect on their own lives and the challenges that they are facing.”

Teen Author Victoria R. Maybury Pens Unique Young Adult Novel

Upcoming teen author Victoria R. Maybury was six years old when she found her passion for writing and storytelling.

San Antonio, TX, USA, May 10, 2019 — In the words of Tom Hiddleston, “You never know what’s around the corner. It could be everything. Or it could be nothing. You keep putting one foot in front of the other, and then one day you look back, and you’ve climbed a mountain.” Upcoming teen author Victoria R. Maybury was six years old when she found her passion for writing and storytelling. But it was her eleventh grade English teacher, Mrs. Caille, who showed her how to bring her stories to life, which ultimately led to Maybury becoming a published author.

Always an avid reader, Maybury, author of “Fire and Ice” grew up in Togo, West Africa where she learned about many cultures and ways of life that can be seen in her writing today. After she and her family moved to Canada, Maybury was inspired by a dream to compose her first book. “I felt that there were not many young adult books that I could get and read, so I decided to write one,” said Maybury. “Reading has brought me out of some dark spots in my life and brought me joy and love for life again, so I wanted to help other people enjoy life more with my book.”

“Fire and Ice” is a fantasy young adult novel that follows a young woman on a big adventure, filled with love, mystery, and suspense. An admirer of authors such as J.R.R. Tolkien, Marissa Meyer, and Suzanne Collins, Maybury took notes from her life experiences to make the book even more vivid. “One of the more mysterious characters was inspired by someone I encountered at a book store, and that sent me back to the drawing board. I made changes and improvements to my original manuscript, which has led to the book that I published.”

Maybury has also incorporated her experiences living in Africa into her work. “All of the chapter titles are based on the theme of love in different languages. I like to use other cultures when writing to create new worlds and fun characters,” says Maybury.

In addition to attending high school and participating in hobbies such as cooking, writing recipes, singing, and playing sports, Maybury also enjoys bringing her characters to life in her pastimes. “I like creating costumes by hand and making meals that would be what different cultures in my book’s world would eat and wear.”

Publisher Lisa M. Umina comments, “Victoria’s book is an electric and riveting read. I look forward to seeing more from this engaging young author. She has a unique perspective, and her book holds a strong appeal for young adult readers.”

For more information about Victoria R. Maybury, visit www.halopublishing.com. “Fire and Ice” is now available at Halo Publishing International, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Goodreads, and Books a Million in Paperback and as an e-Book.

FED Publishing Releases New Book, “Ensuring Justice, Fairness, and Inclusion in America: Managing Equity in the 21st Century” (Part 1 to 4) by Charles A. Washington

Ensuring Justice, Fairness, and Inclusion in America: Managing Equity in the 21st Century, (Part 1 to 4) by Charles A. Washington, sets a bold direction to managing equity in today’s society.

Cleveland, OH, USA — Charles A. Washington’s Ensuring Justice, Fairness, and Inclusion in America: Managing Equity in the 21st Century, (Part 1 to 4) is not a partisan polemic or an academic tome. It is meant to be a “how- to” book. It is meant to be a democratic (small “d”) manifesto. It is meant to be a user’s manual for the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. This book is meant to serve many purposes with regards to America.

The world is currently plagued by polarization, hyper-partisanship, authoritarianism, Majoritarian Democracy, Identity Politics, zero-sum politics and economics, inequality, racism, sexism, populism, Nativism, and dystopian societies. There is a desperate cry for solutions to these problems. This book is dedicated to solving these problems. This book identifies the extent of the problems as they are manifested in America. Then, this book takes the novel approach of operationalizing Justice as Fairness as the foundation of it uses the myriad works of John Rawls to devise solutions to these problems. Specifically, it uses Rawls’ “Justice as Fairness” as the foundation of a revolutionary set of solutions to these global problems.) This book is at once observational, diagnostic, prophylactic, and prognostic in its focus.

This book takes an observational, diagnostic, and prophylactic approach to solve the problems above. According to Rawls, “Justice as Fairness” is an exercise in “ideal (metaphysical) theory.” This book goes beyond the metaphysical, by rendering Justice as Fairness into the realm of “nonideal (real world) theory.” It does this by first deciphering and explaining Justice as Fairness’ challenging concepts using ideas borrowed from many disciplines. The book then moves on to develop a Justice as Fairness Logic Model which identifies the structures, mechanics, and dynamics of Justice as Fairness. Then, this book operationalizes Justice as Fairness through the creation of a revolutionary management system, “Equity Management,” and a companion license-fee-free web-based software system, “Plato.” Equity Management-Plato was developed using Justice as Fairness, Systems Theory, program evaluation techniques, the judicial principle “strict scrutiny,” and Environmental Scanning and Forecasting. Finally, this book outlines how Equity Management-Plato can be used to manage six public sector environments ultimately creating a level playing field and just, fair, and inclusive circumstances for all Americans.

Genre – John Rawls, Justice As Fairness, Social Contract, Equity Management-Plato, Representative Consensus Democracy; Justice, Fairness, Inclusion, Positive-Sum Politics And Economics, Reconciliation, E Pluribus Unum, New Coalition Of Conscious, Global Democracy Project, Saving Liberal Democracy, Better World, Realistic Utopias, Polarization, Hyper-Partisanship, Authoritarianism, Majoritarian Democracy, Identity Politics, Zero-Sum Politics And Economics, Inequality, Racism, Sexism, Populism, Nativism, Dystopian Societies

Washington & Associates, Inc. (W&A) Launched a Strategic Plan Designed to Help Save Liberal Democracy, Unify Peoples, and Resist Authoritarianism Worldwide

W&A is a “startup” whose mission is to help save the liberal world order by reimagining and reinventing democracy.

Solon, OH, USA — W&A, a former holding company that is transforming into a “virtual startup’ geared to implementing a strategic plan and creating an international movement oriented to saving liberal democracy, unifying peoples, and resisting authoritarianism worldwide, had its official launch of the strategic plan.

Worldwide, tottering democracies coupled with “unfettered capitalism” are in crisis largely because their rhetoric does not match their reality. Rather than being the guarantors of opportunity, freedoms, equality, justice, fairness, and inclusion they have proven to be architects of oligarchy, kleptocracy, corruption, racial, gender, religious, class, and representational inequality, hyper-partisanship, polarization, identity politics, and zero-sum politics and economics. Authoritarians are taking advantage of these vulnerabilities by engaging in campaigns designed to subvert democratic processes, “weaponize” democracy’s (and capitalism’s) vulnerabilities and thereby destroy the liberal world order.

W&A has responded to these challenges by developing a universally applicable strategic plan designed to save liberal democracy, unify peoples, and resist authoritarianism and nationalism worldwide. The plan is contained in a recently published book entitled, Ensuring Justice, Fairness, and Inclusion in America: Managing Equity in the 21st Century, written by its President, Dr. Charles A. Washington, and in a series of five (5) white papers and promotional gear. The book and the strategic plan mark the first ever attempt to fully operationalize John B. Rawls’ seminal concept, “Justice as Fairness.” The strategic plan details a revolutionary (Rawlsian) management system called “Equity Management,” and a web-based software system called the “Plato Management Information System,” as solutions to this crisis.

Democracy’s problems are multi-faceted, and the solution must be as well. Saving democracy requires that it be reimagined and reinvented. Further, democracy must be saved in America first if it is to be saved at all. In response to this crisis, newspaper correspondents, think tanks, individual scholars, major universities (Harvard University, the University of Texas at Austin, and the University of Pennsylvania), etc. have begun examining the crisis of liberal democracy and capitalism seeking ways to save them. These early efforts have no viable solutions to offer to date. W&A’s “Rawlsian solutions” call for establishing new social contracts in tottering democracies with emphasis on the promotion of representative consensus democracy, justice, fairness, and inclusion. The solutions that W&A is offering are the first and only real-world, comprehensive, practical solutions designed to save liberal democracy, unify peoples and resist authoritarianism worldwide (and by extension save capitalism) that can actually work.

Pursuant to its mission (“creating one vision and empowering one future”), W&A is soliciting all like-minded countries, governments, corporations, organizations, and individuals who are concerned about the current state of democracy and capitalism in America and around the world and who want to do something about it, to heed this clarion call. Explore our website. Download and read the white papers. Buy and read the book. Buy the gear from our flagship store on our website or from our standalone satellite store and display it proudly. Sign up (organizations and individuals) and join the movement. Help us make the changes we all want. W&A will commit a substantial portion of the profits from the sale of the book and the gear to jump-start the implementation of the strategic plan.

Washington & Associates, Inc. is an S Corporation domiciled in Ohio. Its mission is to “create one vision” (“E Pluribus Unum”) and to “empower one future” (stable and legitimate liberal democracies worldwide).

I decided to buy this book after a friend recommended it to me. I was surprised and delighted with what I found. The author writes with intelligence, zest and enthusiastic charm. I’m looking forward to reading this book with my kids. I found out that the author is actually very young (a teenager?) and to be honest I was a skeptical about what I would find… and yet I’m not surprised she’s won so many writing awards — this is an up and coming author we need to keep on our radar! ~Sierra November – Amazon Books

Will they find the killer before he/she strikes again? Will they figure out whom to trust? Can their friendship stand the test? And, most importantly, will they come out alive enough to tell the tale?

Author Rachel Joel took to writing stories at the early age of 8. She loves to read adventure books and write action-filled stories. She wrote this book during her free time in sixth grade, publishing it a year later.

First Edition Design Publishing Releases New Book, “Tambov the Tugboat” by Mark F. King

Tambov the Tugboat, by Mark F. King, is a delightful trip through the protected harbors of individuality.

Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada — Mark F. King’s Tambov the Tugboat lets this little tugboat make its way in a broad changing world and still remain relevant and important. A much needed reminder for finding one’s own strength and using them to their fullest.

A story of facing adversity and remaining true to your own standards, Tambov is a little steam engine that finds her place in a world of big diesels and gas powered tugs. Just because you are not the biggest or the most powerful doesn’t mean you don’t have a place in this world!

This story helps reinforce hard work and persistence, as well as belief in oneself.

“I love this book and so does my daughter. I really enjoy reading this to her and creating the sound effects, we both enjoy the detailed illustrations. I wish that more books published today like Tambov the Tugboat. This reminded me a bit of the Little Golden Books.” ~Amazon Verified Buyer

Emily Stalder Johnson Encourages Readers to Have Hope

Author Emily Stalder Johnson was in first grade when her teacher assigned her to write a story for a younger student. From that day onward, she hoped and dreamed that she would become an author one day.

San Antonio, TX, USA, March 26, 2019 — In the words of Desmond Tutu, “Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.” Emerging author Emily Stalder Johnson was in first grade when her teacher assigned her to write a story for a younger student.

I knew from an early age that I wanted to be a teacher or an author,” said Johnson. “This book is 17 years in the making, and it is very close to my heart.”

The story centers around young Dublin Pearson, whose life is suddenly changed for the better when Andy Caldwell saves him from his abusive father and the hopeless life he suffered. Andy takes Dublin in as his own son and shows him love and kindness, teaching him about his horses and of God. Months later, tragedy strikes and Dublin must decide for himself if he can trust in the Lord.

“Each character in my book has some of myself in him or her, and Dublin’s journey toward faith is inspired by my own journey,” says Johnson.

Before she came to know God, Johnson says that she would delete her book files and start over. “I want readers to know of my own experience of coming to know the Lord. I was 27 when I came to know Him.”

Publisher Lisa M. Umina comments, “Emily’s book is a touching tribute to all families that are brought together by God’s will. One of the main messages I took away from this book was how powerful God is and how belief in Him has the power to change lives.”

First Edition Design Publishing Releases New Book, “Messy Larry” by David J. Perri

Messy Larry, by David J. Perri, helps you connect with your creative child through an inspirational tale of a delightfully ‘messy’ hero.

Wheeling, WV, USA — David J. Perri’s Messy Larry is about being who you are, and about becoming who you were meant to be.

Messy Larry is an educational, feel-good story for the creative, art-inclined child. – Kirstan Nicole

Art is about self-expression and the desire to create. What is the role of art in your life? What if you had no way to express yourself? How would you be different?

Larry is a little different from the other kids in his grade school class. For starters, he’s big, and he’s clumsy, and he looks kind of like a bear! Larry loves art and wants to make art, but his messiness keeps getting in the way, with hilarious results.

At his wit’s end, he seeks out a favorite relative. Great Uncle Ken helps Larry find a way to express the beauty he knew was inside him. But, self-realization is often a messy and uncomfortable process. The undercurrent themes of compassion, acceptance, and understanding will resonate with many children.

A special “things to think about” section in the back provides the opportunity for discussion of these themes, as well as for the child to experience the book in a more interactive way.

Author/Illustrator David J. Perri is a native Pittsburgher who has lived in beautiful West Virginia for the past fifteen years. He is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame and the University of Dayton School of Law. He has two kids, works as a federal prosecutor, and likes to paint in his spare time.
