New Release Encourages Workers to Build Ergonomic Spaces to Boost Efficiency – Book by Ann Rodiger

Working at one’s full potential doesn’t leave room for injury, pain or strain. Office injuries, such as pain caused by repetitive stresses, pose a threat to overall health and work productivity.

Those who use a computer, write at a desk or talk on the phone can learn how to break free from harmful habits and improve their workstation’s ergonomic setup to increase their productivity and improve safety.

How To Sit Your Body at Work, published by Dog Ear Publishing, details how to apply a process of awareness in action for almost any situation or activity. Workers learn to be aware of what they are doing and how to approach work-related activities with ease. Chapters cover harmful postures, the physical setup of a workstation, how to change patterns, working at a laptop computer or on a bed, and writing with pen and paper. The author also addresses warning signs someone needs a break and getting to work. This comprehensive book is a must for anyone with physical strain at work. It will help build physical and mental awareness to reduce stress and tension, as well as how to reduce risk of injury and increase energy and clear thinking.

New Release Pokes Fun at Stereotypical Harley Motorcycle Riders – Book by James Albert

James Albert, a lifelong rider of touring bicycles and a more recent convert to scooters, has compiled a collection of jokes leveled at the typical Harley rider.  Tired of the mockery aimed at his beloved scooters, James Albert strikes back with this bitingly funny medley of witticisms, featuring three men named Tom, Dick, and Harley.  Tom and Dick are secret scooter lovers, and enjoy having a laugh at the expense of the clueless Harley.

James Albert has assembled 666 jokes, arranged in “chapter” format, each one funnier than the next, and each one sniping at Harley riders.   He has included such gems as, “Why doesn’t Harley ever carry milk home on his Harley?” “By the time he gets it home… IT’S BUTTER!”   His humor runs the gamut from groaners to more risqué offerings, and there’s something to make everyone laugh in these pages.

Tom, Dick and Harley, published by Dog Ear Publishing, is a riotous romp, full of fun and hilarity. James Albert strikes back for “all the scooter owners and scooter riders all over America and the rest of the world who have been belittled, ridiculed, looked down on, made fun of and abused by motorcyclists in general and Harley riders in particular”.  James Albert began to ride scooters in 1997, and founded the Pittsburgh Scooter Club that same year.  He’s put many, many miles on his 80cc Honda Elite 80, his 250cc Honda Helix, and his 600cc Honda Silver Wing.

Jasper’s Person: A Guy and His Dog – Book by Stephen Garger

Life in a five-story Bronx walkup doesn’t mesh well with having a dog. At least, that’s what the author’s parents continually told him when he was growing up. In fact, Stephen Garger didn’t get a puppy until he had retired from his career in Education. The puppy – who chose the author, not the other way around – is a “slightly wall-eyed, hyper, darn near ugly chocolate dapple dachshund named Jasper.”  Little does Garger suspect how this persistent pup will enrich his life.

In Jasper’s Person, published by Dog Ear Publishing, the author shares an honest and often humorous journey of discovery into the world of dogs. As Garger comes to appreciate their ability to live in the moment, he begins playing more and worrying less by rediscovering his little boy side.  In the process he finds out something about himself and the notion of family.  Life seems just a bit sweeter and more relaxed by the end of this touching tale.

Author Stephen Garger is a staff correspondent for Knife World, a regular contributor to Blade magazine, and co-author of Marching to Different Drummers, a bestselling book about learning. He and his wife, Kathy, live in Spokane, Washington.

New Fiction Release Features Action, Adventure, Conspiracy Among U.S. Soldiers – Book by Tim Ramsey

On paper, Captain Tom Curran and Constantine Caraballo are unlikely friends.  Curran, a single man, was raised in a Catholic orphanage and is at home anywhere in the world.  Caraballo is part of a huge Italian family, and would rather be home with his beloved wife and son than any of the exotic locales he’s forced to visit on military business.  But, the two men have been best friends since childhood, and continue to watch each other’s backs as they progress through their respective military careers.

When a mission to find a dangerous energy source goes awry, the men think they’ve seen the worst.  However, when they arrive at home to find there’s been an untimely death—a suspicious death—they find themselves digging deeper into the nature of the military, the reliability of their superiors, and the depth of their own friendship.  Will things ever return to “normal” between the men?  Will they uncover secrets that could change their lives and work forever?

Unnecessary Evils, published by Dog Ear Publishing, is a thrill-ride of a novel, full of exotic settings and packed with action.  The relationship between Curran and Caraballo is full of depth, as is their commitment to service.  Author Tim Ramsey found plenty of material to work with from his own adventurous past.  Ramsey grew up surfing and fishing on the Jersey shore, found himself working a variety of jobs—from stockbroker to Emergency Medical Technician and traveled around the world surfing and fishing.  His long service in the U.S. Army helps to lend credence to the military episodes in the novel, and provided colorful backdrop for Curran and Caraballo’s adventures.

New Release Hooks Readers with Details of Washington Fishing Spots – Book by John E. Moore

Imagine a relaxing fishing trip, led by an expert who’s visited the spot many times. He knows when fish are biting – and where – and shares tips on how to catch them. This fishing guide offers just that kind of detailed information on lakes on and around the Kitsap Peninsula of northwest Washington. Instead of skimming over hundreds of lakes around the state, the author devotes a short chapter to each lake he highlights, including detailed directions and coordinates – for those who use GPS systems.

A Fisherman’s Guide, published by Dog Ear Publishing covers lakes selected from Mason and Kitsap Counties, as well as a few in Pierce County found on Key Peninsula and some eastern Jefferson County lakes. Fisherman will find information they can use, such as each lake’s name, size, elevation, depth, characteristics and fishing tips. Species he lists are those the author has caught or has seen caught. And he’s candid about whether he’s fished in the lake and what success he’s had. Moore includes photographs he took of each lake and a description of the views, providing a visual aid for locating fishing destinations. Visitors will know whether campgrounds are nearby, as well as where to launch their boat.

John Moore, a 10-time Washington state record holder, has certified weight records for five species of fish. Born and raised in Washington in an outdoor-loving family, Moore has spent his whole life exploring for new places to fish across Washington, Idaho and Montana. This fishing guide is the eighth Moore has written.

New Release Shares Stockbroker’s Secrets for Successful Retirement Investing – Book by Larry A. McCue

After reading a particularly discouraging article about retirement investing in the AARP Bulletin, Larry McCue was inspired to create a guideline for the newly-retired (or nearly-retired) investor –“I felt the need to demonstrate to retirees and to employees who have accumulated an asset base within their retirement accounts that it is possible for them to continue to grow their assets during retirement while still taking distributions.”  The Old Man’s Guide to Investing is a detailed how-to for the amateur investor seeking a way to increase capital and maintain the lifestyle they desire.

Using his own investment experiences as a primer for the novice investor, McCue provides a blueprint for the use of conservative investments to increase the retiree’s “nest egg” without jeopardizing their hard-earned savings.  McCue offers advice about when to buy and sell stocks, he provides information about industry stocks versus bonds, and many more valuable tips and suggestions.

The Old Man’s Guide to Investing, published by Dog Ear Publishing, is a common-sense game plan for the average retiree.  Larry A McCue, a graduate of University of Kansas’ School of Business, spent 20 years as a CPA in public and private practice, and 16 years as a stockbroker for Edward Jones.  He has used his own advice to refine his personal investment strategies for himself and his wife, Sylvia, over the last fifty years.

New Release Invites Christians to Explore Their Relationship to God – Book by C J Davidson

This thought-provoking book explores the history of the Roman Catholic Church and the pope’s union with the German king, forming the Holy Roman Empire, and the consequences to faith. The victors of World War II revived the empire, which was suspended in 1806, according to the author, and globalism and Catholicism now engulf the nations of the world. The author traces the Trinitarian doctrine from the early councils of the Roman Catholic Church to the “end-time” government, searching the Bible for doctrinal roots and quoting relevant passages. She urges readers to have a true relationship with God: “Not only must a person personally know God, but God must also personally know him or her. It must be a mutual acquaintance.”

In Poisoned Wine, published by Dog Ear Publishing, Davidson details how many Christians view the Trinitarian doctrine as gospel, thanks to the fathers of the Catholic church who taught that God is one but “exists in three ‘persons’ – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.” The evolving doctrine became embedded into the Christian world when it was officially formulated at the First Council of Nicea in 325 AD and further strengthened by the Council of Constantinople in 381 AD. It’s not just contemporary Christians who struggle with this idea. Not even Jesus’ disciples knew he was the Messiah, the author claims, until after His resurrection from the grave when the veil was torn from their hearts. The Apostolic doctrine, the author writes, “says Jesus is Almighty God (Yeshua of the Old Testament) manifested in flesh” and it is only those who believe in Jesus as Lord who will be saved.

Author Caroline Davidson, a retired schoolteacher, lives near Fort Worth, Texas, with her husband. The book began as research 11 years ago for a letter to explain the Apostolic doctrine to her eldest daughter (she has three), who couldn’t distinguish the Apostolic doctrine from the Trinitarian doctrine. The explanation proved too lengthy for a letter, so Davidson began writing Poisoned Wine.
