by Richard V Battle

Click image below for more info or to buy from Amazon

Life can be hard. It seems like the last few years have been especially difficult with the pandemic and other factors. Even when there are not tragedies or disasters, as the author says, "Life can be a daily grind, discouraging the pursuit of one's dreams and the belief in humanity's goodness."

So the author Richard V. Battle, who is also a motivational speaker and trainer, wrote Life's Daily Treasure to provide encouragement and positive messages in the form of 366 daily doses of Hope, Optimism, Personal Growth and Encouragement. HOPE.

He says the book is part almanac, historic celebration, personal journal and trivia - and all inspirational.

Punched, Kicked, Spat On, and Sometimes Thanked:
Memoirs of a TV News Reporter
by Paul Orlousky

Cleveland TV viewers are undoubtedly familiar with Paul Orlousky - known as Orlo to most. After all he worked in broadcasting for over 50 years, landing in Cleveland on WEWS TV (Channel 5) in 1981. For the next 38 years he was a fixture on nightly Cleveland TV newscasts on Channels 5, 3 and 19.

As an "aggressive" reporter, Orlousky was involved in many of the major stories that happened in Cleveland during the past 4 decades. This book gives an insider's look at many of them. Cleveland viewers will recognize the names such as Dorothy Fuldheim, Dick Feagler, Albert Belle, John Demjanjuk, Jim Trafficant, Dennis Kucinich and others.

My Ticket to Ride
By Janice Mitchell

In 1964 as Beatlemania swept the US and world a Cleveland Heights teen from a troubled family falls "in love" with the Beatles. She buys every record, magazine and tchotcke she can. She dreams of meeting them and moving to London to be with them. Probably the same dream as thousands of young girls at the time, right? But this girl went beyond the dreaming stage.

The full title of the book is My Ticket to Ride: How I Ran Away to England to Meet the Beatles and Got Rock and Roll Banned in Cleveland (A True Story from 1964) and that's exactly what happened. It's an amazing story!
