Jadwiga Radon Provides Weapon to Fight Diabetes with New Book

coverRadon

Dog Ear Publishing releases “America Not That Beautiful” by Jadwiga Radon

A diabetic shares tips and tricks for dealing with diabetes in this new self-help book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

Although freedom and resources enhance the U.S.’s image as a land of plenty, that reputation has a dark side: obesity. In her new book, an author and diabetic challenges Americans to change their lifestyle while they still can. As she points out, diabetics struggle with their condition, but hard work and dedication – including eating correctly and exercising – can help them beat the disease.

“America not that Beautiful” describes basic human behavior, noting that sometimes eating – a necessary fact of life – can become an addiction, especially the high-calorie types readily available in the United States at corner stores, gas stations and grocery stores. That addiction, when accompanied by a sedentary lifestyle and other risk factors, can lead to diabetes. Radon writes about her diagnosis with Type II diabetes and how she worked to fight the disease through modifying her diet and increasing her exercising. Her efforts paid off: Today she is 25 pounds lighter, her cholesterol is within normal limits and she is prediabetic rather than a diabetic.

Radon aims to provide inspiration and practical tips to fighting diabetes, sharing suggestions for daily activities and good habits, information on counting carbohydrates and tips for shopping for food. Diabetic-friendly recipes such as lima beans with sausage and deviled eggs made with avocado incorporate easy-to-find ingredients and good nutrition. The book closes with a chapter devoted to inspirational quotes from historic figures and some inspirational thoughts from the author.

Author Jadwiga Radon. who has diagnosed with diabetes in 2009, taught for 32 years before moving to the United States from Poland to be closer to her only child, a daughter. She is a retired teacher interested in psychology, history and politics. Radon, who moved to the United States in 2001 from Poland, enjoys the mountainous area of Idaho, where she lives. She is in her sixties and walks and hikes to stay healthy.

Cast of Characters Star in William G. Tierney’s New Novel Set at University

coverTierney

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Academic Affairs: A Love Story” by William G. Tierney.

There’s much more than academics going on at Smithfield University in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing. The author, a university professor, creates a sexy, intriguing, and poignant campus world populated by passionate characters who make love, make mistakes and make millions.

For the bored professor with a roving eye, the striving student with a secret, the all-powerful president and the humble gardener, campus life is a daily drama full of twisted relationships, pleasure, passion and pain. And sometimes, lessons learned. Set at the fictional Smithfield University in California “Academic Affairs: A Love Story,”  weaves a narrative both tender and turbulent, examining all variations of relationships in this loosely bound academic family: sociology professor Bill Massy’s clandestine affair with the brilliant and powerful provost; President Roger Turner’s strange partnership with the eccentric mogul who donates $250 million; and graduate student Jim Hagedorn, who jeopardizes his love affair with Kevin for casual sexual encounters. As these too-human characters struggle to make sense of their lives and their work, some relationships end and new ones start, thanks to luck and the lure of love.

For all readers who went to college filled with dreams of enlightenment, passion, and change – and for those readers who wish they had –this powerful novel will stir memories and capture hearts.

Author William G. Tierney is co-director of the Pullias Center for Higher Education and a professor at the University of Southern California. He earned a master’s degree from Harvard University and a Ph.D. from Stanford University. Tierney was academic dean at an American Indian community college, a Peace Corps volunteer, Fulbright Scholar in Australia and Central America and scholar-in-residence in Malaysia. This is the first novel for Tierney, who has written 12 books on higher education.  He devotes his time on and off campus to helping boost college readiness and opportunity for low-income youth.

Ericka Davis Shares Life Lessons through Poetry in New Book

coverEDavis

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Through Mine Eyes: Life’s Lessons Are Meant To Be Shared” by Ericka Davis.

A teacher – and poet – writes about the life experiences from the perspective of a young girl in this new collection of poetry released by Dog Ear Publishing.

Personal experiences shape and change lives, whether for the better or for the worse. This new book of poetry shares experiences and impressions as seen through the eyes of a young girl. With her rhythmic verse, author Ericka Davis offers stories that focus on values ranging from heartbreak and sensuality to challenges, spirituality and love. These memorable moments become the stepping stones that allowed her to reach life goals.

In “Through Mine Eyes: Life’s Lessons Are Meant To Be Shared,” Davis, a woman of faith, provides gentle lessons that offer guidance and reflection. The poem “Fill My Cup” describes things that would make life better:  “Fill my cup with love, hugs, kisses, family, pictures, and memorable events. Fill my cup with humor; playing, laughing and an irreplaceable good feeling that I can hold on to and grasp when I need just a touch.” In “Seasons,” Davis describes a patient teacher: “You are springtime, which nurtures new green sprouts. You encourage and lead everyone, whenever they have doubts.”

The poem “Bold & Beautiful” offers words of encouragement: “How dare you have a passion for life, a passion for people, a passion to do God’s work and worship in the steeple. … Don’t stop now, you are just getting started. We don’t want you to be the deeply departed. We applaud and admire your courage and statue.” The author’s passion for her message comes through clearly. She writes, “There is nothing more precious than preserving memories that mean the most, that inspire, that encourage.”

Author Ericka Davis, a native of Louisiana with a bachelor’s degree and graduate degree in Communications/Broadcast Journalism from Southern University, has been writing poetry for years. The educator, who has a master’s degree in Adult Education and Distance Learning from the University of Phoenix, lives in Tulsa with her family. She and her husband Jody lived in Houston for more than 13 years before moving to Tulsa.
