The journey was a total of 2,553 miles and he averages 30 miles per day. Though the run was challenging, the real inspiration came from the people he met along the way. He met good people.

Memoir – The Book of Jack

The Book of Jack
Author: Jack Angel
Publisher: Abbott Press
ISBN: 978-1458203892
Pages: 217
Published: May 2012

e had only acted on camera in a couple of TV shows and commercials, so all of this-the process of making movies-was totally new and absolutely fascinating.

JACK ANGEL, son of a Greek immigrant, reinvented himself many times-from a poor student to a college graduate; from enlisted man to officer in the army during the Korean War, attending Army Ranger School; and from an eighteen-year career in radio as one of the nation’s top disc jockeys to a career as a Hollywood actor concentrating on voice-overs.

Going to Hollywood allowed him to really hit his stride, and he found himself working on animation projects for the Walt Disney Co. Pixar Studios, Marvel, Hanna/Barbera, Fox, and several others. In this memoir, Angel recalls his adventures in this informative, funny, and insightful view of Hollywood and the entertainment business. A few highlights include his interactions with director Steven Spielberg and John Lasseter, the creative head of Pixar Studios. He also spent three years as a promo announcer with The Tonight Show, starring Johnny Carson. He pays homage to his father, who came to America in the early twentieth century, became famous as the Bean King in Central California, and survived the Great Depression while raising three sons.

Jack Angel’s life story is not only a tale of personal reinvention, but also an uplifting American Dream story that spans a hundred years.

Memoir – Georgia Justice

Georgia Justice
Author: Jackie Carpenter
Publisher: Xulon Press
ISBN: 9781612155579
Pages: 157
Published: January 2011

What happens when a good person who serves God as a Bible teacher and church organist is struck by a tragedy and assaulted daily by Satan? What happens when you turn to God but cannot hear Him speak? What happens when you pray for a miracle and nothing happens? What happens when a person of faith discovers she lacks the faith to overcome tragedy?

Georgia Justice: A Journey of Faith is a true story of the author’s journey beginning with the belief she had a lot of faith to the stunning realization that the faith she had did not even begin to measure up to where it needed to be when tragedy struck. Jackie Carpenter realized that when her son’s arrest for felony murder turned her life upside down and the faith she relied upon was not turning her right-side up!

Every day and night after her son was falsely charged with felony murder, the author was assaulted by Satan who created fear, doubt, terror, nightmares and daymares, and deep depression. Only in her prayer closet could Jackie Carpenter find peace and faith and pointers on how to build her faith.

Georgia Justice then becomes a story of faith-building – a how to guide of what it takes to escape from the tightening grips of doubt and depression and begin the journey to renewed and strengthened faith, hope, and ultimate victory. Georgia Justice is a book everyone should read, believers and non-believers alike, those facing a tragedy now and those who have no idea a tragedy lies ahead in their tomorrows.
