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.

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. From that day onward, she hoped and dreamed that she would become an author one day.

Always an avid reader, Johnson, author of “A New Hope: Second Chances and a Forgotten Boy” was 14 years old when a dream gave her an idea for her first book. “I have always loved writing. 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.”

Hola Publishing Expands in the Mexican Market, Calling for New Voices to Share their Stories

Hola Publishing International offers authors publishing and printing services with global distribution.

San Antonio, TX, USA, July 2, 2018 — New publishing and print options for authors are now available in the Mexican market. Hola Publishing International offers authors publishing and printing services with global distribution. The growth of this affordable publishing option has been limited in the Mexico market because printers only offer their services directly to traditional publishers.

With already established digital printing facilities in the United States, United Kingdom, China, India, and Germany, to name a few, Halo Publishing International has recently expanded their Spanish Language Imprint, Hola Publishing, in the Mexican market.

By offering POD (Print on Demand) services, which are a rarity in Mexico, Hola’s goal is to encourage more writers to publish their stories. Authors and organizations no longer face the barrier of having to order 2,000 books. They can place smaller orders ranging from 25 to 1,000 books and receive global distribution to sell their books around the world.

Publisher and CEO, Lisa M. Umina comments, “Our company is set up to work with small self-published authors as well as corporations, embassies, government, non-profits, and universities. Our Mexican authors have been successful;for example, we published the story of Luchandopor mi vida, mi historiaby Clarita Sierra who has been recognized and become a national speaker in schools around Mexico with her best-selling memoir about her son struggling with addiction.”

Cecilia Sotres, Hola’s publishing consultant, adds, “We saw a gap in the Mexican digital print market, and we are so excited to bring new opportunities to Mexico to publish previously unheard voices from throughout the country.”

According to Sotres, “We are at the cutting edge of this industry. We provide global digital distribution for all our books in paperback, hardcover, and e-book. Our authors retain 100% rights to their books.”

Hola Publishing has found a way to reduce barriers to the high costs associated with shipping to Mexico from the United States, and they are proud to offer a product that is produced entirely in Mexico. By streamlining this process, they have been able to reduce turnaround time to 60 days in print while maintaining an extremely high quality finished product.

“The direction we are taking is to collaborate with the corporate world and working with large educational institutes. Printers here in Mexico have open arms about partnering with us to give our customer’s the best pricing and product,” says Umina.

Positivity Can Save Your Life, Woman Proves by Overcoming Battle against Rare Cancer

A cancer diagnosis is difficult for anyone to receive, and Donna Moore’s prognosis was not optimistic.

San Antonio, TX, USA, June 15, 2018 — “I was told from the beginning that most people’s bodies can’t handle the treatment, let alone withstand the cancer,” Moore recounts.

In 2010, she was diagnosed with Adenosarcoma, a rare type of uterine cancer. When the cancer was discovered to be metastatic, her oncologist prepared for the worst. “The treatment for metastatic cancer focuses on extending and maintaining one’s quality of life—not finding a cure. At least this was the situation when I first met Donna Moore,” medical oncologist Michael S. Gordon writes.

“In that moment, I realized we had an uphill battle and we were going to have to start treatment right away,” explains Moore.

In addition to starting treatment, Moore began to read about other cancer patients who had survived the disease. “I wanted to know what they did to survive. The common thread was if you don’t keep the energy in your body flowing positively it will impede treatment. I focused a lot on keeping my energy flow positive, and a lot of that was humor. A lot of it was God.”

Her “adventure with cancer,” as Moore has dubbed it, meant trying everything and anything that promised to help her heal. From essential oils to energy work and traditional treatments, Moore was open to everything. She began writing regular e-mail updates, and she realized that she was not only keeping her friends and family apprised of her status but also entertained by her upbeat stories about this trying chapter of her life.

It was this e-mail correspondence that prompted Moore to write a book so that her story could be a resource to others who were facing an especially challenging life situation or disease.

Of the book, Moore comments, “I hope it will help people to approach these difficult situations positively and to add humor to it. To be able to laugh at a difficulty and not to take it so seriously. People need to know that there are so many different ways of healing yourself, and everybody has a unique approach.”

Defeating this rare cancer, Moore overcame odds that were undeniably stacked against her.

“It wouldn’t be a stretch to say that Donna’s recovery was nothing short of miraculous,” adds Publisher Lisa M. Umina. “This author illustrates so clearly that, in a world where many take a poor prognosis as a death sentence, there is room for positivity, faith, and incredible healing.”

For more information about Donna Moore, visit www.handlewithlovebydonna.com and www.halopublishing.com. “Handle With Love: One Woman’s Approach to Kicking a Nasty-Ass Cancer” is now available at Halo Publishing International and Amazon in Paperback for $14.95, and as an e-Book for $4.98.

Jerome N. Okoye Advocates Invigorating Faith to Fulfill Our Human Potential

Having overcome numerous adversities as a boy growing up in Nigeria, Jerome N. Okoye is creating a platform to share this powerful message.

San Antonio, TX, USA, June 14, 2018 — “You have been created for much more.”

Having overcome numerous adversities as a boy growing up in Nigeria, Jerome N. Okoye is creating a platform to share this powerful message.

Although Nigeria is Africa’s biggest economy, about 67% of the population still lives below the poverty line, a reality with which Jerome is intimately familiar.

From growing up as a child in Ajengule—one of Nigeria’s most notorious slums—to never being sure if there would be enough to eat, Jerome went on to get a degree in electrical engineering and a post-graduate degree in electric power systems engineering. He now has a successful career working for General Electric as a salesman, as well as a budding private consulting business.

“Electricity has always been fascinating to me, how something so simple can illuminate so much. The same is true with knowledge. If you can make things a bit clearer, if you can expose people to true knowledge, they can find out the rest for themselves. I’ve always looked to illuminate this path.”

This is Jerome’s goal with his new book, “Calling on the Deep: The Believer’s Quest for Revival,” where he aims to challenge the status quo, and encourage people to re-evaluate their relationship with their faith.

Although he himself once knew the very depths of lack and uncertainty, Jerome emphasizes that material wealth is not the ultimate goal: “We are more than just wealth itself. Wealth for the sake of being wealthy is meaningless. What is important to me is speaking to people about the truth of human potential. I know without a shadow of a doubt, that we have unlimited potential, and can do whatever we set our hearts to.”

Publisher Lisa M. Umina adds, “This author has a powerful perspective to share. His message is relevant not only for the Nigerian audience but for the world.”

For more information about Jerome N. Okoye visit www.halopublishing.com. “Calling on the Deep” is now available at Halo Publishing International, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble, Goodreads, and Books a Million in Paperback for $14.95, and as an e-Book for $9.99.

Social-Emotional Learning an Indispensable Component of Childhood Development, Education Professionals Affirm

Special Education professionals, Jessica Tukaj and Amanda Derrick, are working to facilitate positive change within an education system that works on a “one size fits all” model.

San Antonio, TX, USA, June 9, 2018 —Special Education professionals, Jessica Tukaj and Amanda Derrick, are working to facilitate positive change within an education system that works on a “one size fits all” model.

Standardized testing has been on the rise since 2002 when the No Child Left Behind act was passed. But these kinds of standardized tests have been shown to cause extreme stress in younger students, and it has not increased student achievement, with US ranking dropping in math and science according to the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA).

“With the continued raising of standards, children are facing more pressure in the school system than arguably ever before. Many children feel they do not fit into this mold and expected time frame. It’s important for students and parents to recognize that all students will develop in their own way and in their own time,” Derrick affirms.

For both Derrick and Tukaj, these conversations about school systems and different educational models date back to when they studied Special Education together at Florida Gulf Coast University.

Now, as professionals working in the field, these concerns are apparent in the workplace and beyond. “We need to look at the whole child including their social-emotional development, which is a big part of what we think is lacking in the school system. There’s so much more to a child than if they can read by the age of five or write cursive by the time they’re in third grade.”

On a personal note, Derrick adds, “We both have unique kids. They are great and amazing children, however we have learned as parents they do things in their own time and in their own way just like so many other children do, and that’s okay.”

To tackle these issues, the two women decided to team-up to create a children’s book that presents a new perspective, teaching children the value of being a unique individual. “There is a lack of knowledge and resources addressing social-emotional development, which is why we decided to create this book,” says Tukaj. “Our goal is to provide tools for parents and teachers to start developing these skills with their children.”

Teaching social-emotional skills as well as science lessons, “These books are not only fun and engaging for children, but they present an essential message to educators and parents alike about the type of messages they need to be instilling in children,” comments publisher Lisa M. Umina.

Ilene Sims Encourages Others to Break Free and Become Empowered

Working as a pastor, Ilene Sims has been trained to listen and watch others carefully.

San Antonio, TX, USA, May 30, 2018 — “Working with young people and adults alike, I know firsthand that there can be, at certain times, many areas in our lives that are hurting.”

This is a reality that she faces every day in her work as a hospice chaplain, giving spiritual guidance to those in need during the last stages of their lives, as well as providing support to families and loved ones.

However, at a difficult time in her own life, after having gone through a divorce, a friend gave Sims a gift that would forever change her outlook on her life, as well as those around her. Her friend gave her a red-factor canary, named Frankie. Red-factor canaries are unique from other birds because their owner can actually influence their color.

Sims had had birds before, but never one quite like Frankie.

The relationship between animals and humans is something that modern science is just beginning to understand. For instance, innovative medicine programs are beginning to accept that there is much to learn from a cross-disciplinary approach between human and animal medicine, for example.

But even beyond the field of medicine, the parallels between humans and animals have much to teach us about who we are.

“You can overcome difficulty. That’s what I learned from Frankie. There comes a time to trust somebody. Frankie would perk up in the morning: he recognized my voice. As humans, we share that same ability to go to the Lord. There is help and there is hope, but you will never meet your full potential if you are hiding.”

The series of events that Sims shared with Frankie were so profound that she decided to write a book about it, using her experience with Frankie as a metaphor for her own life and challenges, one that she knows can speak to a diversity of readers who are going through their own challenges.

“This is a time on the earth when people need hope more than perhaps ever before,” Sims says. “My intention is for my book to give them that hope.”

“This is a unique account of the bond between a bird and a woman that can offer readers of any age insight into their own lives,” adds publisher Lisa M. Umina.

For more information about Ilene Sims visit www.halopublishing.com. “Soaring with Frankie” is now available at Halo Publishing International, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Goodreads, and Books a Million in Paperback for $10.95 and as an e-Book for $5.95.

Shields Takes Readers on an Unforgettable Journey Into Loss and Love

What happens when you surrender and trust? This is the question central to Tim Shields’ first novel, “A Curious Year in the Great Vivarium Experiment.”

San Antonio, TX, USA – May 9, 2018 — On the morning of his thirty-sixth birthday, Thomas Furey finds himself alone and jobless. Devastated by the recent loss of his mother, he feels untethered, like he is falling into the depths of something he can’t describe. On a whim, he buys a one-way ticket to India. Possessed by fear, armed with hope, protected by naïveté, and guided by intention, when Thomas learns to operate in alignment with his true self, serendipity intervenes.

Taking inspiration from his own life and travels, Shields says, “After a decade bookended by sick and dying parents, I decided to set out to try and uncover what I’ve always called my ‘soul ache.” He adds, “I think each of us has our own soul ache, and whether we are conscious of it or not, it’s one of the central drivers of our life.”

As Thomas journeys all over Southeast Asia for a year, he learns about becoming a man in the shadow of his parent’s death, surrendering his past and trusting the future that is pulling him forward, and the power of gratitude and intention to shape his reality.

“This book is about overcoming the self, that voice in our head that’s not loving or kind to us. Beyond that, there’s a much deeper philosophy at play about the nature of reality and the role of consciousness to shape it.” Shields adds with laughter, “It’s kind of like a ‘Portrait of the Artist’ as a middle-aged, spiritual man. Thomas is an artist searching for his voice and a writer searching for his story.”

“Sitting on the mountain, it occurred to me that traveling was a lot like writing,” says the protagonist. “When you sit down to write, you have no idea where you’ll be when you get to the end. Sometimes the journey is joyful, sometimes it’s terrifying, and sometimes it reduces you to tears of gratitude or despair. And sometimes the most fantastic, serendipitous events get you to the next chapter when you simply do the work, stay open to ideas, and follow where they lead you.”

As publisher Lisa Michelle Umina observes, “We are releasing this book at a time when, more than ever before, people are inquiring about the nature of our existence. This book challenges readers to find their own answers and seek their own stories.”

Shields’ nephew and godson, Jack Shields, created an original musical score for the book’s theatrical trailer. This collaboration led to the creation of an original soundtrack for the book, which is currently being shopped around to record labels. To view the book trailer and for more information, visit the book’s website: www.acuriousyear.com.

The book is now available globally at Halo Publishing International, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble, Goodreads and Books a Million in Hardcover for $26.95, in Paperback for $19.95, and as an e-Book for $9.99.

About Tim Shields:
In December 2016, Tim Shields left behind his career in marketing and advertising for ghostwriting. He has since worked with two New York Times bestselling authors, both of whom write about the nature of reality, consciousness, quantum physics, healing, and more. Born with a curious mind and restless spirit, he heeds the call of the creative muse wherever it summons him. Whether playing in a band, taking improve and acting classes, volunteering at an orphanage in Tanzania, buying one-way tickets to India and Mexico, or attempting to create his own travel show in Europe, his interests can be found at the intersection of creativity, expression, travel, and expansion. He holds creative writing and philosophy degrees from Loyola University in Baltimore, Maryland and currently calls Seattle, Washington home. To learn more, please visit www.acuriousyear.com.
