Xlibris, the print-on-demand self-publishing services provider, announced today the availability of Red Phoenix Legend, by author Lambert Cheung. Available in online bookstores since April 13, 2011, this book takes readers on a mythical adventure where a young man learns his destiny.
When Jasai was just a young boy, he loved listening to his guardians bedtime stories. Valdrayan often told him tales about kung fu and magicbut one particularly story, The Red Phoenix and the Endeavor of Light, has always fascinated the young boy. The Red Phoenix was a deity from the heavens that embodied all that was good, pure, and prosperous. The people of China worshipped her, and yet, there were others who not only worshipped her but devoted their lives to her completely. They were called the Endeavor of Light. This clan of warrior monks devoted not only to the glory of the Red Phoenix but to her protection as well. So loyal they were to the Red Phoenix that they lost their lives when one of the monks betrayed the clan, allowing a vengeful enemy to destroy them all.
Jasai grew up listening to these stories, which taught him the virtues of compassion and loyalty, while learning kung fu from Valdrayan. At his early twenties, he was already a strong fighter who learned to use his powers responsibly. Unknown to Jasai, Valdrayan has honed him to become what he was to prepare him for his destiny. Stories about the Red Phoenix and the Endeavor of Light were true; in fact, Valdrayan was an honorary warrior for the deity himself. And Jasai, the young man, was the only living descendant of the Endeavor of Light.
Time will come that Jasai will have to face the vengeful enemy that killed his parents and destroyed the Temple of Damo, home of the warrior monks. Can Valdrayan fulfill his destiny of preparing him for the worst, and can Jasai become a true warrior monk of the Endeavor of Light? Find out in Red Phoenix Legend.
This book will be featured at the California School Library Book Exhibit in Pasadena, CA on November 11-14, 2011. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to http://www.Xlibris.com.

Over 250 million calls are made to 9-1-1 annually and nearly half of those calls are caused by misuse and abuseprank calls, people asking for information, duplicate calls, people asking for driving directions, and even calls for help finding a lost pet or hurt animal.
In addition to being a waste of costly resources, 9-1-1 misuse and abuse is a major safety issue as emergency lines are limited, which means crime prevention and life-saving solutions are delayed when 9-1-1 operators and first responders are busy dealing with non-emergencies. Thats why the charity 9-1-1 for Kids was created.
9-1-1 for Kids helps educate children about proper 9-1-1 usage. Former Los Angeles/Oakland Raider and future NFL Hall of Fame inductee Tim Brown is the charitys international chairman. Supermodel turned business mogul Kathy Ireland is the Worldwide Ambassador. They have been helping raise awareness through special charity events and fundraising that goes toward educational materials. For example, the charity created a video program for schools that teaches children how calling from a landline is preferred because the location of the call is automatically transmitted to 9-1-1 call centers. Accurate address information is central to coordinating emergency services quickly.
Mobile phones do not transmit location as reliably or efficiently as landlines. In the 1970s, a system was developed–known as Automatic Location Identification (ALI)–to connect landlines to a database program that would transmit addresses to 9-1-1 call centers. Mobile phones often times transmit inaccurate location or no location at all. That is why it is important to use a landline if possible.
This type of education is valuable for children and adults to know. 9-1-1 for Kids executive director Elise Kim says teaching children is the most effective way to inform families about proper 9-1-1 usage because children talk about what they learn to their parents, and they influence adults to behave safely. This protects neighborhoods, argues Kim, because proper 9-1-1 usage allows emergency resources to be directed to real emergencies, making communities safer.
Enter U.S. Best Repair Service, a leading provider of default mortgage field services and general contractor. In the mortgage industry, they specialize in repairing and protecting abandoned bank-owned homes, which attract crime and neighborhood blight if left unkempt. Their services include painting over graffiti, boarding broken windows, maintaining overgrown lawns, and securing hazards like empty pools which are unsafe for curious neighborhood children.
As an advocate for neighborhood safety and a specialist in removing community blight, CEO Mark Zaverl felt 9-1-1 for Kids was a charity that fit well with U.S. Best. Its a cause that affects literally everybody, says Zaverl, or as 9-1-1 for Kids co-founder Elise Kim likes to say, Everybody should care about 9-1-1 education because even if you dont like kids, one day a child could save your life by dialing 9-1-1 for you.
The three seemingly unconnected pioneers–Elise Kim, co-founder and director of 9-1-1 for Kids; Tim Brown, Raider football legend and future NFL Hall of Fame inductee; and Mark Zaverl, founder and CEO of a small handyman service turned national general contractorwill be attending Five Star Conference in Dallas, TX on September 8-10 at the Hilton Anatole for the mortgage servicing industrys largest gathering of its kind to raise awareness for 9-1-1 for Kids and abandoned bank-owned home protection.
Tim Brown will be available on Monday, September 9th, from 12pm to 2pm at booth #112. Media coverage is welcome. Advanced credentialing is necessary for this event. Please contact Mike Gleason for media inquiries:
