Independent Author Lila Rhodes Publishes Fourth Book in Albin and the Jouster Series

LYNNWOOD, Wash., Aug. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Author Lila Rhodes is proud to announce the latest installment in her easy-to-read series, titled Entering The Castle. The book is available for sale on Amazon as a Print-on-Demand book through CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform.

The idea for the series started when Lila found her self-proclaimed "Knight in Shining Armor" Lord Anthony Woodville. Her fascination with this particular historical figure has led to four published books with an additional 16 in the works.

The simple English used in the books was inspired by Rhodes experiences as a teacher. She spent time tutoring people with dyslexia and Korean students, and when she visited the library, she noticed that "the easy-to-read books focused on sports and rockstars. I thought, 'maybe that's not what everyone wants to read about.'" said Rhodes.

While Rhodes infatuation with Anthony Woodville began in 1983 "500 years, to the month, after his death" she notes, she didn't feel ready to commence writing until 2012. To prepare, she spent the spring of 2012 in England exploring the setting of her future work.

Rhodes books follow Woodville's career, but they are told through the eyes of a commoner. Albin is a very relatable figure, believes Rhodes, particularly to many suffering from disability. When she heard how many military veterans suffer from brain damage, Rhodes wanted to help. She donated the first volume of her book to several Veteran's hospitals.

The illustrator for the books, Brian Ladlee, is a veteran himself. Rhodes considers herself lucky to have found Ladlee online. "He's a wonderful artist, and he cares about getting things right," she compliments.

An interest in accuracy is a goal the author and illustrator share. She says her fifth book will take some time, because of the intrigue contained in that portion of the history. As an independent publisher, she has the luxury of taking the time she needs.

Rhodes is also a strong advocate of Print-on-Demand publishing, stating "I've always thought, 'let's not turn all those trees into books no one wants.'" Her independence is evident in her choice of everything from her subject matter to her motto "if you can't be the best, be unique."

Rhodes most recent book can be purchased on Amazon. You can learn more about her on her personal website: http://www.lilarhodes.com or Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/LilaRhodesAuthor. Inquiries may be sent to [email protected]. Her illustrator may be found at http://www.brianladlee.com

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...

Most of the time there is a lot of work involved to move to the cloud, and most of that isn't really related to AWS or Azure or Google Cloud. Before we talk about public cloud vendors and DevOps tools, there are usually several technical and non-technical challenges that are connected to it and that every company needs to solve to move to the cloud. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Stefano Bellasio, CEO and founder of Cloud Academy Inc., will discuss what the tools, disciplines, and cultural...
The “Digital Era” is forcing us to engage with new methods to build, operate and maintain applications. This transformation also implies an evolution to more and more intelligent applications to better engage with the customers, while creating significant market differentiators. In both cases, the cloud has become a key enabler to embrace this digital revolution. So, moving to the cloud is no longer the question; the new questions are HOW and WHEN. To make this equation even more complex, most ...
As DevOps methodologies expand their reach across the enterprise, organizations face the daunting challenge of adapting related cloud strategies to ensure optimal alignment, from managing complexity to ensuring proper governance.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
