ANEKO PRESS ANNOUNCES FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
26 STORIES OF ORDINARY MEN AND WOMEN WHO DID THE EXTRAORDINARY
Uncommon Character explores the inspirational, true-life stories of 26 ordinary and mostly unknown men and women who led extraordinary lives of exemplary good character. In its associated previews as well as on the back cover, the author, Douglas Feavel, promises stories that contain:
- Inspiring truths about common individuals regardless of gender, race, location, religion, or era
- Lasting human — even eternal — values
- Practical and ready applications
- Potential for retelling in a variety of situations and with assorted audiences
- Memorable life lessons and parables worthy of sharing with family and friends
Only one year after its publication release, Uncommon Character is well on its way to being a modern classic within charitable, NGO, and non-profit marketplaces. The author and publisher have partnered in an international outreach to regularly place thousands of complimentary copies in prisons/jails, youth villages, assisted living centers, military bases, hospitals, recovery centers, Sunday Schools, libraries, private and home schools, camps, and missions organizations. Those qualifying on these criteria are encouraged to send an e-mail request for books to contact@DougFeavel.com or through the website: www.DougFeavel.com .
These are the same venues where the stories were developed as the author volunteered in them nearly full-time for a decade, both domestically and abroad, after his retirement as pay-back for grace received while he sought release from ignorance, learning disabilities, and poverty. Readers are encouraged to share his stories at home, school, church, and in the workplace (permissions already granted). Uncommon Character has also served as the base text in character-building instruction.
Endorsements and five-star ratings have been gratifying assurances that Uncommon Character delivers all of its promises as a rewarding and lasting reader experience. The author states he sought a book of this nature for many years, but could not find it; so he wrote it. The subtle inspiration behind its creation, as well as woven throughout, was to help others “write their own life-story and then finish well”. He shares that the book’s origins were equal parts head and heart.
