Just.Another.Common.Killer

Montreal, Quebec (Vocus/PRWEB) December 29, 2010

Just.Another.Common.Killer, a new book by Chantal Bellehumeur, has been released by RoseDog Books.

Under hypnosis, six-year-old Jack Huntington tells his psychiatrist the dark unsolved tale of Jack the Ripper’s 19th century murders. Such details are given, that Dr. Philips begins to believe that his patient might be the Ripper himself in another life. When the boy fails to give him any information that would reveal the identity of the White Chapel killer, Dr. Philips ridicules himself for having thought the impossible.

Years after killing his sisters in a sleepwalking state, Jack is claimed normal and able to re-enter the real world. He is released from the mental institution to start a new life, but slowly starts to act upon his killer instincts and begins to remember events that happened over one hundred years ago.

Jack is ready for new games!

Chantal Bellehumer was born on June 30th 1981. She lived half of her childhood in Toronto, and the other in Ottawa. At the age of 14, she started taking acting classes to overcome her shyness. She enjoyed it so much that theatre became her favourite hobby. After performing in a couple of amateur stage productions, she joined a youth-run theatre company. Bellehumer moved to Montreal at the age of 19 so that she could study theatre at Concordia University. But, once her son Aidan was born, he became her number one priority. She decided to put her acting career on hold before it really began. However, she still worked as an extra in several movies, television shows and commercials. She completely stopped this part time work once she found a suitable office job.

Bellehumeur wrote in her spare time. She published her first novel Veronica’s Soap Opera Life in 2009 along with its sequel Veronica’s Attempt at Romance. People always expected her to write a thriller, so she began to work on Just.Another.Common.Killer.

Bellehumeur lives in Montreal with her son, whom she loves more than anything in the world!

Just.Another.Common.Killer is a 168-page paperback with a retail price of US retail price of $ 17.00 and Canadian retail price of $ 19.00. The ISBN is 978-1-4349-9932-0.

Best-Selling Author, Nutritionist Gives Road Map to Weight Loss

Best-Selling Author, Nutritionist Gives Road Map to Weight Loss










Greensboro, NC (PRWEB) September 26, 2006

The Transitions Lifestyle System™, an exclusive Market America brand, announced the publication of a new book authored by Shari Lieberman, Ph.D., clinical nutritionist and best-selling author of the Real Vitamin and Mineral Book. The book, entitled Transitions Lifestyle System Glycemic Index Food Guide, gives dieters an easy-to-follow guide to eating healthy foods.

“This book is for anyone who wants to make a change in their health,” said Lieberman. “By using this book and the glycemic index, people can make small changes in their lives and have dramatic effects on their health. Consumers have realized that fad diets do not work and may even cause them to end up gaining weight. Diabetics and nutritionists have used the glycemic index for years as a way to control blood sugar spikes after eating. It is a more natural way of making small changes for big results that last.”

The Transitions Lifestyle System Glycemic Index Food Guide also helps readers understand the importance of the glycemic load of foods. The glycemic load (GL) of a food measures the glycemic index of food along with the total number of carbohydrates to give an accurate indication of how a food might affect blood sugar spikes. By understanding the GL of food, consumers can understand that serving size and GI are intertwined when considering effects on blood sugar.

Designed by Lieberman, the best-selling author and 20-year veteran of nutrition science, Transitions Lifestyle System draws upon a well-established and evaluated method of weight management based on the glycemic index of foods. Glycemic index (GI) measures how quickly foods impact blood sugar levels. Carbohydrates that break down slowly and help keep blood sugar levels stable are considered “good carbs.”

The Transitions Lifestyle System Glycemic Index Food Guide is sold through Market America’s independent distributors and online book retailers. To locate a distributor, visit marketamerica.com or call (800) 862-6561.

Author Lynn Moore Reveals Why Baby Boomer Women Are The Largest Influence Behind the Historical Change in the Dynamics of Retirement

Author Lynn Moore Reveals Why Baby Boomer Women Are The Largest Influence Behind the Historical Change in the Dynamics of Retirement











Lynn Moore


Vernon, BC Canada (PRWEB) August 11, 2011

Lynn Moore, author of “How To Get What You Want Every Time” and “Inspirational Goaling” reveals why baby boomer women are becoming a powerfully influential group and changing the dynamics of retirement as we’ve known it.

Just as the Baby Boomer generation has created massive changes in society’s norms as it reached various milestones in life’s progression, it continues to do so as the woman of this generation does not see ‘retirement’ as have her ancestors. According to Lynn Moore, creator of Clear Goals Coaching, these women, who are the segment of our society most responsive to the powerfully positive shift in our planetary consciousness surrounding the year 2012, are the front wave of the ‘new retirement’.

         This age group and gender whose numbers are greater than at any other time in history will be the most long-lived and in better health than any previous generation and they want to be productive. These women have experienced more rapid change, more accumulation of knowledge and more life adjustments than any past generation. Their accumulated wisdom is apparent and they want to use it creatively. They see themselves as free and purposeful for several more decades and are looking for a fulfillment they have not yet experienced. The National Association of Baby Boomer Women (http://nabbw.com) states, “Women have the opportunity to take previously untapped power into their hands to influence the direction of the marketplace, the workplace, the family and worldwide leadership. ‘We’re a powerhouse of femininity and our world needs us healthy, wealthy and wise’ ”

         Even more than these circumstances, they are unwilling to look at their future as one of traditional ‘retirement’, because they are motivated by a more ‘spiritual need’ to bring additional feminine energy contributions to society. They want to leave a legacy of new values through living their life purpose as they assist others to do the same. The “New Retirement Survey” by Merrill Lynch finds that “67% (of Boomers) assert that continued mental stimulation and challenge is what will motivate them to stay in the game.”

Tony Robbins, in his teachings of the Six Basic Human Needs, points out that Growth and Contribution are the two primary needs in life and “unless you feel like you’re growing, you will be unhappy and unfulfilled” and “A balance of contribution to oneself and others, especially unselfish contribution, is the ultimate secret to the joy that so many people wish to have in their lives”.

         Moore feels that clearly, this group of women is motivated by these two primary needs. Moore’s career as a Life Coach/Mentor teaching her proprietary system of choosing and attaining goals in a new way for a new age, has discovered this desire within most of her mature, female clients and experiences them seeking clarity and direction as they search for their ideal vehicle through which to accomplish their desires ie: entrepreneurialism, volunteerism, consulting, etc. To a person, she hears them saying “I know there is something out there that I am supposed to do; there is something more for me.” The same Merrill Lynch survey shows, “Baby boomer women view the dual liberations of empty nesting and retirement as providing new opportunities for career development, community involvement and continued personal growth.”

It is to this end that Moore was inspired to record a 50-minute mp3 titled “Revealed! Six Reasons Why Baby Boomer Women Are the Most Influential Group On The Planet And How To Get Extreme Clarity About Your Most Meaningful And Exciting Years Yet!” This recording is a free download on Moore’s website http://www.ClearGoalsCoaching.com and is intended to give Baby Boomer Women insight into what they are sensing and why, that they are not alone and that they do indeed have a new role in society that is much needed, aligned with the shift in consciousness and tells how they can develop great clarity in going forward.

Ottawa Author Founds Society to Help Orphaned Children in Canada

Ottawa Author Founds Society to Help Orphaned Children in Canada










Ottawa, ON (PRWEB) November 12, 2006

Elizabeth Wiebe, an Ottawa author and advocate for orphaned children in Canada, has recently formed a non-profit society to further promote her efforts to help orphaned and abandoned children in Canada. Called the Elizabeth Wiebe Society for Orphaned Children in Canada, the society’s mission is to “Give orphaned children in Canada a chance by fostering awareness and empathy and promoting a determination to give every child the right to a permanent loving home so that they can evolve in all aspects of their development.”

Ms. Wiebe, author of the recent book “Orphan – Through the Eyes of an Orphan” and an orphan herself, is currently focusing her attention on the issue of making adoptions easier in Canada. “Why is it,” she states, “that Canadian couples find it easier to adopt four overseas children than to adopt a single Canadian child? Abandonment is a real, tangible issue for orphaned children, and the current foster care system simply does not address their special needs. Making adoptions easier in Canada would be a huge step on the road to caring for these children and helping them heal.”

The purpose of the society is not about rescuing individual children, but rather bringing awareness to their plight; about encouraging Canadian society to do a better and more enlightened job of dealing with children who suddenly find themselves without real parents, and improving the chances of these children to be adopted. Through the society, Ms. Wiebe is seeking funding to keep up lobbying pressure on legislators, media and other organizations that will ultimately apply the pressure needed to affect change. Current projects in the works include translation of her book into French, production of an audio version of the book and creation of a second book (see below). Ms. Wiebe also accepts speaking engagements and media interviews.

The society is seeking stories from orphaned or abandoned children, from foster parents and from those trying to adopt Canadian children. A second book, which will incorporate these stories, is in the early writing stages.

More information about the society is available on the website at http://www.ElizabethWiebeSociety.org.

Her book, “Orphan – Through the Eyes of an Orphan,” is available online at http://chapters.indigo.ca.

New Book Release, “After Her Brain Broke: Helping My Daughter Recover Her Sanity” Gathering Praise. Author to Appear on Internet TV

New Book Release, “After Her Brain Broke: Helping My Daughter Recover Her Sanity” Gathering Praise. Author to Appear on Internet TV











After Her Brain Broke


(PRWEB) March 21, 2010

Released earlier this month, After Her Brain Broke: Helping My Daughter Recover Her Sanity by Susan Inman is quickly gaining praise from reviewers and interest from the media and those involved with serious mental illness.

On Wednesday March 23 at 3:00 PM Central Time, the author will be appearing on HealthyplaceTV to discuss her book.

Ms Bob Etier in her review on Blog Critics said “After Her Brain Broke should be required reading for the mental health field or Psychology 101 students”.

Political commentator, Raif Mair, wrote in “It’s a book I urge you to read” in The Tyee

Susan Inman’s daughter had one of the most severe cases of schizoaffective disorder that psychiatrists in Vancouver had ever seen. After a two year psychotic episode, she had a grim prognosis. Some psychiatrists predicted she would have to be institutionalized for life.

Fortunately, Susan’s ability to take unpaid leaves of absence and to teach part time enabled her to assume responsibility for her daughter’s recovery. Eventually, a new medication strategy freed her daughter, Molly, from a psychosis that she described as a living hell.

Susan said that “I could not find the stories from other parents that would likely have provided some comfort when I was the most overwhelmed. In my memoir, I share the complicated story of helping my daughter get her life back in the hope that it will help others in a similar situation and give them some comfort.”

No parent ever wants to see their child develop a chronic medical disability. But, when it is one that is so misunderstood by society as is schizophrenia and the other serious mental illnesses like bipolar disorder or schizoaffective disorder, it is even more traumatic. Imagine how any parent would feel if faced with this situation described in the book:

” We are driving down Main Street to the grocery store when Molly’s attention is caught by a

homeless man in the corner of the parking lot who’s rearranging the clutter in his shopping cart.

‘Will I be getting a shopping cart?’

I park the car and will my voice to be convincingly certain as I take on this assumption that is said with a heartbreaking naivete.

‘No, these are sick people who don’t have a family to help them’.”

Dr. E Fuller Torrey, a former advisor to the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill, the Executive Director of the Stanley Medical Research Foundation and the best selling author of Surviving Schizophrenia said “this is one of the best accounts I have read of serious mental illness as told by a mother.” He went on to say that her “attempts to educate herself and her support of her daughter as they wend their way through the schizoaffective maze provide a model for other families. Highly recommended”

Dr. Stephanie Engel, a Harvard psychiatrist stated that this is “a much needed book about her experience as a mother…”

Dr. P Jane Milliken at the University of Victoria in BC states that “Susan’s story is inspirational”

Dr. Jehannnine C.S. Austin of the Department of Psychiatry and Medical Genetics at the University of British Columbia adds that this book is “important reading for both family members and mental health professionals alike”.

A review byMs Bob Etier on Blog Critics stated that “After Her Brain Broke is critical of “traditional,” blame-the-parents psychotherapy which is surprisingly still practiced, and sensitive to how that approach can hurt the mentally ill, as well as their families”

Well known Canadian political commentator Raif Mair wrote in his review on The Tyee that this is “a story of great courage by each member of the family, very much including Molly. It’s a book I urge you to read.”

After Her Brain Broke: Helping My Daughter Recover Her Sanity, is published by Bridgeross Communications. ISBN 978-0-9810037-8-8 and is distributed by Ingram Books. The book is available from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Chapters/Indigo and in a Kindle format.
