Lighthouse Catholic Media, a not-for-profit company achieved a milestone in sales growth of 21% over April, 2009 – significant in this continuing poor economy worldwide. As we move toward the end of Pope Benedict’s “Year for Priests” Lighthouse continues to support this theme with its release of its “Year for Priests” CD.

Lighthouse Inspires Christians Worldwide with New Media

In this fantastic CD, Dr. Michael Barber, Professor of Theology and Scripture at John Paul The Great Catholic University, and Chase Hilgenbrinck, seminarian and former professional soccer player, share rich insights about this vocation to which select men are called by God to serve Christ and the Catholic Church.

Lighthouse Catholic Media’s CDs are distributed primarily in two ways: through their FAITHRAISER Kiosk Program displayed in over 3,000 parishes, Catholic schools and missions, and via their popular Lighthouse CD of the Month Club Program. The CD of the Month Club is a subscription-based service delivering faith-filled Catholic CDs to individuals at the amazingly low rate of $5/month including postage, with brand new titles being introduced monthly by inspiring speakers, both lay and clergy.

The June CD of the Month is “Why Be Catholic?” by Patrick Madrid. Best-selling author and veteran Catholic apologist Patrick Madrid shares why he is Catholic (when he could be anything else) by presenting the historical case for the Catholic Church. Discover the powerful biblical evidence for Catholic teaching that will inspire you to share your faith with others effectively and help you to grow in your love for Christ and His Church in the process! This compelling overview of the key historical, biblical, and common-sense reasons for being Catholic is perfect for Catholics and curious non-Catholics alike.

Many people in these economically challenging times are looking for sources of truth and guidance, a sense of hope, courage and faith, and a means to grow spiritually in their daily lives.

In one of the most economically challenging years in memory, Lighthouse Catholic Media, a Not-for-Profit Corporation achieved a milestone in distributing over 975,000 audio CDs in 2009 for a growth rate of 29% over 2008. Since its’ founding in December, 2005 Lighthouse has distributed nearly three million inspiring Catholic CDs worldwide. Media for evangelization?

The Vatican on Saturday, Jan. 23rd issued a positive affirmation of media in the Church: (Zenit.org) Benedict XVI is encouraging Catholics, especially priests, to use media technologies to reach new audiences with the message of God’s love. The Pope affirmed this in a message, released Saturday, for the 44th World Communications Day, which will be celebrated May 16. The theme of the day, “The Priest and Pastoral Ministry in a Digital World: New Media at the Service of the Word,” reflects the Year for Priests currently underway in the Church. The Pontiff affirmed that in digital communications, “priests can discover new possibilities for carrying out their ministry to and for the Word of God. The recent, explosive growth and greater social impact of these media make them all the more important for a fruitful priestly ministry.”

Lighthouse Catholic Media’s CDs are distributed three ways: through their FAITHRAISER Kiosk Program displayed in over 2,400 parishes, Catholic schools and missions, the popular Lighthouse CD of the Month Club Program, and a new portable 16-CD display. The CD of the Month Club is a subscription-based service delivering CDs to individuals at an amazingly low rate of $5/month including postage with brand new titles being introduced monthly by inspiring speakers, both lay and clergy.

In January, 2010 the featured CD of the Month Club title is Building Better Families by Matthew Kelly. In addition, another CD released explains St. Louis De Montfort’s book True Devotion to Mary and how the intercession of our Blessed Mother is especially important for our troubled times. “AWESOME CD! As a convert I did not understand the beauty of our Blessed Mother. WOW! She is such a treasure and gift from God.” says Denise in Avonmore, PA.

The organization has lofty goals. This week, the not-for-profit announced its’ third offering in a handsome wall-mount or table-top portable display that holds sixteen CD titles. Priced at less than $200 for 80 CDs, Lighthouse Catholic Media expects to grow from the 2,400 parishes now served to over 6,000 of the approximately 18,000 US Catholic parishes. Catholic schools and missions across the Upper Midwest utilize tools such as http://www.lighthouseideas.org that enable volunteers to assist in the evangelical ministry.

New Website Helps Frustrated Book Authors Land a Book Publishing Contract for a Six-Figure Advance

Successfully published book authors have donated their time and knowledge to launch BookProposalWriting.com (http://www.bookproposalwriting.com), a new website to help aspiring authors sell their non-fiction book ideas to book publishers for a six-figure advance.

The book publishing industry holds a closely-guarded secret to getting published by a major book publisher — the secret is writing a persuasive book proposal. Writing a successful book proposal allows book authors to earn a five or six-figure advance before they even start writing their manuscripts.

According to Brian Scott, the site’s creator and publishing director of Payday Publishing, “Many aspiring authors have never heard about a book proposal or how to use one to land a book publishing contract. Instead, these aspiring authors spend several months writing their books, and then grow old shopping their entire manuscripts around to busy book publishers and literary agents. It’s no wonder why many aspiring authors become frustrated and give up. This way does not work today.”

To educate aspiring authors about using a book proposal, BookProposalWriting.com offers a free online “Book Proposal Writing Workshop,” which teaches writers and book authors how to write a book proposal in seven days or less. The Workshop covers important topics such as: “Why write a book proposal first?,” “How to generate ideas to write your book proposal,” “How to write your book’s blurb for your book proposal,” and”How to write your book proposal query letter.” At the end of the Workshop, aspiring book authors can download a free sample book proposal and use it as a working template for their own work-in-progress proposals.

Besides offering a free book proposal workshop, BookProposalWriting.com offers many free how-to articles and audio articles on writing, designing and selling a book, as well as many instructional videos showing step-by-step how to write different components of a book proposal.

BookProposalWriting.com also offers several free downloadable products covering book writing, book marketing, and self-publishing. A few of the website’s products include: “Hot Topics in Book Writing,” “How to Get a Literary Agent,” “Sit Down and Write that Bestselling Novel,” and”Copyright Protection for Book Authors.”

BookProposalWriting.com is not just for authors who want to publish their books the traditional way, but also for self-publishers and independent e-book authors. “Even if you decide to self-publish or write a book as an e-book or a mobile digital book, you should know how to write a book proposal,” said Scott. “If your self-published book becomes a big success, you may want to pitch your book (or book ideas) to a major book publisher or film agent to reap in the financial rewards.”

Visit www.BookProposalWriting.com and let professionals teach you how to write a book proposal and sell your book ideas for a six-figure advance.

Book Tells The Tales Of Discarded Dogs Who Become Helping Heros

In her newly published book, New Lives: Stories of Rescued Dogs Helping, Healing and Giving Hope, Joanne Wannan tells the stories of abused, abandoned and discarded dogs who are now playing the roles of heroes in animal therapy, and as service dogs. From a Dalmatian who was scheduled to be euthanized to one of Michael Vick’s fighting bit pulls, the dogs in Wannan’s book have overcome tremendous obstacles, yet have gone on to work with humans, creating NEW LIVES for them both.

Lottie Dot was instead abandoned by her breeder in the middle of a ferocious Oklahoma winter storm. The little pup was rescued by her son, and Patricia Belt quickly claimed Lottie Dot as her own. When it was discovered that Lottie was deaf, Patricia taught her dog sign language and enrolled her in classes to become a “therapy dog.” Today Lottie volunteers at hospitals, gives demonstrations at a school for deaf children, and participates in a reading program, which promotes literacy by having children read aloud to a dog. “Lottie can’t hear these precious kids read a single word,” Patricia says. “She listens in a different way; with her heart.”

As a part of Michael Vick’s dogfight operation, Dr. Leo, as he is now affectionately called, was doomed. When authorities stepped in, they disbanded the operation and ordered that each pit bull be evaluated and placed with rescue organizations if possible. Dr. Leo was found to be non-aggressive, but filled with anxiety and lacking in socialization skills. “It’s not that he wasn’t friendly; he just didn’t understand about love, or what he was here for,” his new owner Marthina McClay comments. Dr. Leo is now w wonderful “therapy” dog, visiting patients in a chemotherapy ward, and acting as an ambassador for abused dogs everywhere when he visits a juvenile detention home.

Dropped from a four story building ,and landing on his backside, Dobie, a tiny black Labrador retriever puppy, was left for dead. Thanks to the love of Richard Bartel anddonations of over $90,000 to the University of Minnesota Foundation, Dobie is now alive, well and an active participant in Therapy Dogs International that provides well-trained dogs who visit hospitals, schools and senior homes.

Wannan’s stories are filled with the reality of animal abuse, but also with love, hope and information on the many organizations around the world that help with rescue, housing and adoption of discarded dogs. As Wannan puts it, “These are truly inspiring stories of dogs that were once ‘throwaways,’ and of the lives they have changed.”

Dr. Marty Becker, the resident veterinarian on Good Morning America says, “This book will appeal to animal lovers of all ages, to those interested in learning about animal therapy and to those who advocate for shelter dogs. But mostly, it will appeal to anyone who loves a heart-warming story, where the underdog triumphs in the end.”

The book stresses that all the How-Tos readers encounter will not help unless they look at the Whys of their actions.

CLO: Chief Life Officer helps readers create their own life business plan. The plan includes setting goals, communication and relationship creation, and maintaining and accessing a support system. Readers learn to define important divisions of their lives in terms of business departments. The book helps readers test their capacity of readers’ production, customer service, human relations, and sales departments. The book demonstrates how to create and apply a “decisional balance table” to life choices, enabling readers to set the right priorities.

Your Family Constitution: A Modern Approach To Family Values & Household Structure Is A Back-To-School Must Read

Amidst the flurry of back-to-school activities, families brace for a return to discipline and order, signaling the end of summer. As parents adjust to their new fall routines, scores of competing obligations and responsibilities highlight the difficulty of raising well-grounded kids with good core values. Combine this perpetual struggle with the effects of technological distractions, societal lack of discipline, and communication breakdowns, and it is not hard to understand why so many parents throw up their hands in defeat and accept mere survival.

“For many families, the stark contrast of transitioning from a lazy summer to a hectic school year is often met with resistance,” said Scott Gale, author of Your Family Constitution. “But folks at their wits end needn’t revert to survival parenting. Instead, they can initiate a series of steps designed to help families let go of chaos, establish healthier boundaries and achieve a more harmonious family life.”

Author Scott Gale, who refused to settle for survival, has designed a powerful tool that allowed him to alleviate family challenges through the thoughtful application of clarity, consistency and commitment (the “3Cs”). Your Family Constitution tells his story and provides a step-by-step process that parents can follow to improve family communication, reduce household tension, and improve the time family members spend together.

Our Family Constitution guides readers through a personalized journey of introspection, visioning, household observation, prioritization, and ultimately the creation of manageable boundaries coupled with consistent rewards and consequences. The product of their labor is a Family Constitution – a clear and consistent set of rules customized to the needs and circumstances of their household.

About Your Family Constitution
Your Family Constitution is a common-sense playbook to reaching family harmony. The principles and tools developed by author Scott Gale to improve his own family relationships, can be applied by today’s parents who routinely juggle “bowling balls” (the weighty needs of career, family, marriage and themselves). Your Family Constitution provides a fun, healthy model for family structure, togetherness and growth, which enables families to create more quality time by minimizing destructive behaviors. Stop listening to well-intentioned parenting advice and reading countless family help books and create Your (own) Family Constitution today.

Powerful Secret to Reduce Debt – Learn How to Sell Anything Fast

Struggling to get out from under a pile of debt, like many Americans? People in financial trouble often try to make more money or cut their expenses, but they neglect a simple, effective strategy. How to sell anything you don’t need to help reduce debt.

So says author James B. Savage, who wrote the book Sell It Fast: How to sell almost anything with effective low-cost classified ads. “You can sell anything around the house to reduce debt quickly and easily in newspaper classified ads,” he says. “But you need to know how and where to advertise.”

Savage teaches consumers how to price items correctly and place them in online and in-print classified ads, many of which are free or inexpensive.

Many people fail at selling items in classifieds because they don’t know techniques he has mastered over 15 years. Or they avoid trying to sell their old stuff entirely because they believe it is expensive, difficult or a hassle.

Great sell-anything-fast items include cars, motorcycles, kitchen appliances, furniture, lawn mowers, electronics, televisions, cell phones, electronic games and tools or anything that has value, according to Savage.

He advises people to reduce debt by selling items which they are paying off monthly. This only works “as long as you do not owe more than the item is worth,” he cautions.

Sell It Fast tells you:

• How to find the right buyer
• Where to advertise free or at little cost
• The tricks to make your ad better than others
• How to save money advertising
• Why you shouldn’t trade in your car because you can sell it yourself for its real value
• Profit-making tips to sell hobby items and collectibles
• 2 must-do things to make your ad work
• The No. 1 secret to get the best price
• Ways to cut or stop unnecessary responses
• How to prevent getting ripped off by thieves
• And much, much more.

In addition, Savage’s book helps you write the perfect classified quickly with its ad forms. They helped him sell a $5,500 lawn mower in the middle of winter and without any selling expenses.

Sell It Fast – the only tool you’ll need to sell anything and reduce debt – is available at amazon.com or at http://sellanythingfast.com.

Juliet, Naked – Nick Hornby’s Latest Novel

Penguin has announced the publication of Juliet, Naked, the long awaited novel from Nick Hornby, which sees him return to the music world and will be released by Viking in hardback.

Juliet, Naked, Nick’s latest novel for adults after a four year wait since A Long Way Down, is about the nature of creativity and obsession, and how two lonely people can gradually find each other.

Juliet, Naked tells the story of Annie and Duncan, a mid-thirties couple whose shared interest in musician Tucker Crowe brings them together before ultimately splitting them apart.

Tony Lacey, Nick’s editor at Penguin, said: “Fans of Hornby’s High Fidelity will doubtless be delighted to learn that his next novel takes him back into the music world, though nowhere near the north London of Fever Pitch. His protagonist is a reclusive 80s rock star who is forced out of isolation when the release of a stripped-down version of his most famous album brings him into contact with some of his most passionate fans. Set in America and Lincolnshire, the novel tells the story of two lonely people finding each other across decades and continents.”

Nick Hornby was born in 1957. He is the author of five previous novels, High Fidelity, About a Boy, How To Be Good, A Long Way Down (shortlisted for the Whitbread Award) and Slam; three works of non-fiction, Fever Pitch (winner of the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award), 31 Songs (shortlisted for the National Books Critics Circle Award) and The Complete Polysyllabic Spree; and a Pocket Penguin book of short stories, Otherwise Pandemonium. He recently wrote the screenplay for the film An Education, which won the Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival and is due for release in the UK in October 2009. Nick Hornby lives and works in Highbury, north London.

Penguin will publish Juliet, Naked in September 2009, adding to the complete list of Nick Hornby books already available on the Penguin website, as well as the blog which Nick updates.

Enter The World Of “Make Believe” And Read About The Legend Of The Bear Lake Monster, Long Family Traditions, A Tender Love Story, And A Few Mysterious Events!

Scotland has the Lock Ness Monster and Bear Lake Valley has theirs. Do they really exist? The mystery of the Bear Lake Monster has been an exciting part of Idaho history since the early 1800s. David begins to wonder about this legend in “David and the Bear Lake Monster” (ISBN: 978-1-58982-532-1 / American Book Publishing). As the waves splash gently upon the shore and the full moon shines brightly upon Bear Lake, a deep foreboding is in the air and the fawn, sipping from the lake, can sense it. His ears perk up and he stands still. Only the sounds of nature can be heard, but the deer senses that he is in danger and quickly darts away. A few feet from shore, the water abruptly parts and exposes a gigantic brown lump about 90-feet long. Water trickles down its sides as it floats in the stillness of the night.

Midwest Book Review wrote: “With a blend of romance, this deftly written historical fiction series is well deserving of a place in community library historical fiction collections.”

When David returns to the Robert’s family for a visit, he learns about the great Indian legend: the Bear Lake Monster. When he discovers people still believe in this legend, he sets out to prove that it doesn’t exist but the community is insulted that anyone would try to discredit something they have believed in for years. Their legend is sacred to them and part of Bear Lake history. Searching for true happiness, David is reunited with the Roberts family, trying to overcome his troubles! David quickly becomes one with the town and its folk. He finds himself entranced with one very special lady and ends up defending her honor several times. She isn’t like the average woman. Sarah is different. This beautiful and charming woman has a disability that no one seems to notice. He finds out that Sarah has gone through more trials than the average person. She teaches him the importance of not dwelling on the past and how to love life. After a few teases, tricks, and mischievous deeds, David begins to overcome his troubles. As time passes, he realizes he must now face the dilemma of choosing between his work and matters of the heart.

“David and the Bear Lake Monster will keep readers entertained right up to the last page,” wrote Kim Atchue-Cusella of Book Loons. “Linda Weaver Clarke creates another winner with this installment of her Family Saga in Bear Lake Valley series.”

About the Author
Linda Weaver Clarke was raised on a farm surrounded by the rolling hills of southern Idaho. She now makes her home in southern Utah among the beautiful red mountains. Clarke travels throughout the United States, teaching a “Family Legacy Workshop,” encouraging others to turn their family history and autobiography into a variety of interesting stories. Clarke is the author of the historical fiction series, “A Family Saga in Bear Lake, Idaho,” which includes the following novels: Melinda and the Wild West – a semi-finalist for the “Reviewers Choice Award 2007,” Edith and the Mysterious Stranger, Jenny’s Dream, David and the Bear Lake Monster, and Elena, Woman of Courage.

Penguin Has Announced The Publication Of “The Original Of Laura”, The Final Book By Novelist Vladimir Nabokov

Penguin has announced the publication of “The Original of Laura”, the final book by novelist Vladimir Nabokov, a novel which has been the source of much anxiety and contention for Nabokov’s fans and his family.

The Original of Laura which exists on 138 index cards, was complete in Nabokov’s mind, though he died before he could translate his vision onto paper. He asked for the manuscript to be destroyed, so his wife Vera, and later his son Dmitri, faced an agonising choice whether to publish the book or not. After three decades in a Swiss vault, “The Original of Laura”, an extraordinarily beautiful novel, unprecedented in structure and style, will be published for the first time.

In Dmitri’s introduction to his father’s last novel, he recalls that it was only chance that saved an earlier book, “Lolita”, from the incinerator. He has been guided by the precedent of that other book’s survival in choosing to see “The Original of Laura” published.

Dmitri Nabokov, the son of Vladimir said: “When the task passed to me, I did a great deal of thinking. I have said and written more than once that, to me, my parents, in a sense, had never died, but lived on, looking over my shoulder in a kind of virtual limbo, available to offer a thought or counsel in order to assist me with a vital decision, were it a crucial mot juste or some more mundane concern. I decided at this juncture, that, in putative retrospect, Nabokov would not have wanted me to allow a new “Juanita Dark” – for that was an early working title of “Lolita”, destined for cremation – to burn like a latter-day Jeanne d’Arc.”

Penguin is celebrating all Vladimir Nabokov’s writing in three tranches with beautiful new jackets for the entire backlist.

Alexis Kirschbaum, Editor for Penguin Classics said: “Penguin Classics is thrilled that after over 30 years of deliberation, Dmitri Nabokov has at last agreed to let his father’s unfinished final novel, “The Original of Laura” be published. To make the most of this historic literary moment, Penguin Classics plans to republish Nabokov’s entire backlist, as if for the first time, to introduce the public to novels which they may not have heard of before. “Lolita” is only the beginning; from the humour of “Pnin”, to the satire on tyranny in “Bend Sinister” to the transcendent novel of first love in “Mary”; there already exists a Nabokov novel to be discovered for the first time.”

Vladimir Nabokov was born in St Petersburg. He wrote his first literary works in Russian, but rose to international prominence as a masterly prose stylist for the novels he composed in English, most famously Lolita. Between 1923 and 1940 he published novels, short stories, plays, poems and translations in the Russian language and established himself as one of the most outstanding Russian Émigré writers.

Penguin will publish “The Original of Laura”, as well as Nabokov’s other titles about childhood and young love in November 2009, with the author’s experimental novels and nonfiction, including a collection of unpublished poems to follow in spring 2010. Nabokov’s satirical works and a previously unpublished collection of letters to his wife will be published in autumn 2010.

Rain Dance – A Novel That Examines The Volatile Issues Of Abortion And Infertility

Sheaf House Publishers announces the August, 2009 release of Rain Dance by author Joy DeKok.

Rain Dance delves into the often silent battles and surprising hypocrisies found in the lives of women facing these two personal crisis.

Publisher and editorial director Joan Shoup contracted Rain Dance because it fits the editorial guidelines and the commitment of Sheaf House to publish novels written with excellence, that are unafraid to dive deep into the heart of sometimes “untouchable” topics, and offer a powerful redemptive message for readers.

“Rain Dance is the perfect fit for Sheaf House,” Shoup says. “The author has written a beautiful story her test readers and reviewers love. She didn’t shy away from the difficult and refused to end the novel with ‘happily ever after.’”

Author Joy DeKok comments, “I’m dedicated to writing with integrity – my faith demands it and the story, which is both plot and character driven, required it. I didn’t choose this topic. It chose me one day while I was cleaning the house. I told God I thought it was a great idea and I hoped He’d find an author for it. Although I argued with Him for almost a year, I realized, He already had His author. Me.”

Rain Dance joins the impressive Sheaf House line up August of 2009.

Endorser Sue Liljenberg, International Director, of Healing Hearts Ministries says, “This book is a must read for all women. Although it is a fictional story the author has brilliantly captured the many issues that women struggle with and offers hope that can only be found in Jesus. She also shows how looking beyond our own circumstances can bring blessings into our lives and the lives of others. I’ve ministered to broken women for over twenty years and I’m thankful for resources like Rain Dance that will reach women who are hurting and give them hope.”

A Five Star Tale Is Reborn

Much like a Broadway play, TV co-producer and writer Mario Bernheim took his novel, Michael’s Reward out of town and came back with five star reviews by some very discerning and enthusiastic readers f r o m coast to coast. This is Bernheim’s first novel.

“Michael’s Reward” takes the Old Testament book of Job and adapts it beat-for-beat in a modern spiritual drama s e t in Santa Barbara , California . The story takes you through a journey of extremes with Michael, a very successful and faithful family man who loses everything because God and Satan have made a wager on his devotion and dedication. Echoing the lives of so many people today, Michael looses what he thought was important, but finds that the depth of his faith in God proves to be his salvation in every way.

Mario Bernheim started his career in the entertainment industry at Universal Studios working for movie director Joel Schumacher. He was a founding staff member of Comic Relief on HBO, hosted by Billy Crystal, Whoopi Goldberg and Robin Williams. Mario spent 12 years administering and co-producing TV specials to raise money and awareness for America ‘s homeless.

Having visited so many homeless shelters across the country Mr. Bernheim drew both inspiration and details for his book f r o m those people who were looking for help and a way back to a life they once knew. Bernheim added, “Whether it’s Job who lived this story three thousand years ago or someone in Anywhere, USA , this story will show us that faith doesn’t come easy but its rewards are immeasurable”.

“Michael’s Reward” is available online at www.michaelsreward.com.
