A Little Insight for Earth Day 2012

*Leave a comment below through the end of Monday, April 23, 2012, to be considered for the random giveaway explained below.

I hope you’re enjoying Earth Day and doing something to better your impact on the planet.  Over the years, I’ve come to realize what’s important on this site is not to criticize others for not doing this or that but to curate and share good insight as much as possible.  And the insight I’m most optimistic about for the future is prefab.  So I’m going to give away 10 copies of a great prefab book called Prefabulous + Sustainable by Sheri Koones.

But that’s not all.  You may know Koones is hard at work on a second book about prefab called Prefabulous + Almost Off the Grid.  When that comes out in about October 2012, I’ll also ship a copy of the new book to the above 10 winners of Prefabulous + Sustainable.  All I ask is you keep me informed if your address changes in the mean time.

This isn’t backed by Koones or her publisher or anything like that.  I just want to give something back to you in appreciation for your readership on Earth Day.  And I think many of you are interested in green prefab, so let me help you fill out your bookshelf on this topic.  If you want to go ahead and buy these books, here’s links to purchase on Amazon:

[+] Prefabulous + Sustainable by Sheri Koones – $25.00.
[+] Prefabulous + Almost Off the Grid by Sheri Koones – $24.95.

Livermore, CA (PRWEB) December 8, 2010

Charles J. Orlando, popular author and Facebook personality, is proud to announce a major social media milestone as the Facebook Page for his highly-acclaimed relationship book The Problem with Women… is Men: The Evolution of a Man’s Man to a Man of Higher Consciousness surpassed 250,000 fans Facebook. The effort has been completely organic–with zero dollars spent in marketing–and has grown from a small fan base of 600 on March 1st, 2010 to over a quarter of a million fans today.

In January 2010, Charles launched a Facebook page in support of his book and he gained a few fans. But word of his approach to relationship equality and empowerment for women spread quickly, and his Facebook page is currently growing by over 20,000 fans per week–without advertising or paid marketing. The fans are extremely active, and represent a worldwide audience–with thousands in the United States, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Australia and Portugal, among others –and they can reach Charles directly on Facebook. It’s not just his Facebook page’s growth numbers that are notable, it’s also the Monthly Active Users. According to Facebook Insights, Facebook’s Page Analytics tool–nearly 50% of Charles’ fans return every month, translating to thousands of post “likes”, comments, and resulting in book sales.

“The people I connect with on Facebook don’t really expect to reach the actual person that wrote the book, and I think that’s part of what makes my Fan Page different,” said Charles J. Orlando, author of the acclaimed book, The Problem with Women… is Men: The Evolution of a Man’s Man to a Man of Higher Consciousness. “Fans don’t communicate with my publicist or a marketing person on my Facebook page, you reach me directly. So after you’ve read my book and you have a question, I’m there to answer it. I think that’s what sets my fan page apart.”

About The Problem with Women… is Men

Relationships. Marriage. How do they work, and why don’t they last? Flip on the TV or peruse the Self-Help section at any local bookstore and you see the same theme over and over again: Women need to change, and they need to work harder to understand men. Is this realistic? Hardly. Practical or effective? Not at all. Women in committed relationships are looking for meaningful guidance beyond “dating do’s and don’ts.” In The Problem with Women… is Men: The Evolution of a Man’s Man to a Man of Higher Consciousness, author Charles J. Orlando relies on data from more than 1,600 interviews to take readers on a humorous, blunt, tell-all trip that exposes the male psyche. Orlando delves deeply into men’s issues and their resistance to change, and offers a road map men can follow to become more sensitive, knowledgeable, intimate, involved–and evolved–in their relationships.

About Charles J. Orlando

Charles J. Orlando is an author, writer and speaker living in the San Francisco Bay Area. He is an active member of American Mensa, and he is regularly tapped by radio and print publications for his relationship expertise, including Self, Men’s Health, Shape, and The Reporter. Charles’ past experience as a “morally challenged” young man–combined with over 1,600 interviews with men and women–has brought The Problem with Women… is Men: The Evolution of a Man’s Man to a Man of Higher Consciousness to life, taking readers on a humorous, blunt, tell-all romp through the world of men and their issues. Through his efforts, Charles hopes to assist women in regaining their sanity and self-esteem, and empower men in evolving beyond their primal instincts.

New Children’s Book Explores the Ghosts of the White House

Bellingham, MA (PRWEB) October 6, 2008

Obama or McCain: one of these men will be moving their families into a haunted house this January. The White House in Washington, DC, is one of America’s most famous and haunted homes. Stories about strange sounds, disturbing sensations, and ghostly apparitions at the executive mansion date back over a century and have been referenced by Presidents, First Families, and staff members alike. Just in time for a heated election season, paranormal expert Jeff Belanger guides readers on a ghost investigation that explores not only the spooky tales, but the real history of one of the world’s most famous residences.

Who’s Haunting the White House?: The President’s Mansion and the Ghosts Who Live There (By Jeff Belanger, Illustrated by Rick Powell, Sterling Publishing, October 2008; $ 14.95, Ages 10 and up) is the first book to explore the haunted legends as an innovative way to teach history and learn more about where the Presidents of the United States have lived and worked.

“Damn place is haunted sure as shootin’,” wrote thirty-third President Harry S. Truman in a letter to his wife, Bess.

“The White House is one of the most haunted and historically important buildings in the United States,” said Jeff Belanger, author of Who’s Haunting the White House?. “When you consider the history the took place inside of this building, the tragedies, and the volume of historic decisions made under this roof, it’s small wonder why residents, staff, and visitors of the White House pick up on the past. Add to this the many ghostly reports over the decades from some highly credible witnesses, and you have what could be the single most interesting building in the country. By exploring these legends, young readers are forced to go back through history to discover who these ghosts may have been in life. Ghost investigating can be one of the most educational endeavors young people can embark on.”

Using letters, diaries, and first-hand accounts, readers hear from people who have witnessed a haunting and decide for themselves if the stories are true. Is Abigail Adams still hanging laundry on the premises? Does President Andrew Jackson still make a ruckus up in the Rose Guest Room? Is Abraham Lincoln a permanent fixture in the bedroom that bears his name? In addition to ghost-hunting, kids will learn about the real history inside this famous home. Archival images are combined with original art to illustrate Jeff Belanger’s journey through White House history and its legends.

He’s been fascinated with the supernatural since age ten when he investigated his first haunted house during a sleepover.

He has been a guest on over 100 radio and television programs including The Early Show on CBS, The History Channel, The Maury Show, The Travel Channel, National Public Radio, DayBreak USA, and Coast to Coast AM.
