Capo's Prayer Author Kimberly R. Morgan to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

You have to draw people in through emotion and write so the everyday person can feel it.”

— Kimberly R. Morgan

TUPELO, MISSISSIPPI, UNITED STATES, May 30, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Kimberly R. Morgan is the international bestselling author of the popular Capo’s Prayer series: The Capo’s Prayer and its follow up The Capo’s Prayer: Revelations.

“These books delve into the emotional side of these Mafia men, their families, their children, the destiny they were born into and how they handle being given a life sentence that can feel like a death sentence as well,” says Morgan. “It’s graphic and violent as most of my work is.”

To look at Morgan, you wouldn’t think she was the imagination behind the graphic violence and adult content found in her stories.

“The juxtaposition between what I am and what I write. It takes people aback,” admits Morgan. “People wonder, ‘Where did this come from?’ I’m 5’2, weigh 112 lbs. I’m a cross between a southern belle and a steel magnolia. Most of the time, I’m very gracious, sweet and kind, but there’s a side we all have that is dark, maybe even touched with a little evil.

The first Capo’s Prayer released in August 2016, held the top four spots on Amazon’s Hot New Release in all four categories, English and Italian paperback, and Kindle in both English and Italian. The Capo’s Prayer: Revelations was released in April, 2017.

“I try to write books where, if you have a four-hour plane trip, you can stay engrossed and finish it on the plane,” says Morgan. “I don’t write massive books. I don’t have time for it and I’ve found readers don’t like it. So, I put all I have into every page.”

As for the future, Kimberly will continue to work in Hollywood, as an executive producer, transitioning from writing to producing more short films and then making them into feature films. She is currently developing screenplays for both Capo’s Prayer books. The producing team is pursuing investors to make these two films into box office sensations.

“If there’s one thing I can do well, that is write emotion,” says Morgan. “You have to draw people in through emotion and write so the everyday person can feel it. I call it ‘coloring in.’ That’s when you add the emotions and the feelings to move people in one direction or the other. You bring your words to life. If I can’t make myself laugh, or cry while writing, then I can’t make the reader laugh or cry.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Kimberly R. Morgan in an interview with Jim Masters on June 1st at 4pm EDT and with Doug Llewelyn on June 8th at 4pm EDT.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.

Dance With Your Journey Author Betsy Theodore to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

SALEM, OHIO, UNITED STATES, May 30, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — When you can use your creativity as a vehicle for healing, the result is empowerment.

Betsy Theodore is the author of Dance With Your Journey, a collection of inspirational and uplifting poetry and quotes.

“A self-help poem or quote can give one light for another day,” says Betsy. “Dance With Your Journey is about loving life and truly embracing every moment given to us. Always dance with your journey.”

Self-published this April, Dance With Your Journey is culled from a lifetime of expression in the face of adversity. Adopted at age 3 by an incredible family, Betsy was only nine years old when she wrote her first quote: “My life is a beautiful note in God’s symphony.”

“My writing has always been therapeutic for me,” says Betsy. “When I wrote about my feelings, I knew from people’s reaction that it was different for a kid. My book includes poetry I wrote as a child, my poetry in school and my poetry today. It’s basically my journey of learning to be confident as a woman.”

At 22, Betsy was diagnosed with endometriosis, requiring chemotherapy.

“I started writing more seriously after my illness,” recalls Betsy. “It changed me completely. Being 22 years old and being told I had this went through a lot of changes at a very young age both emotionally and physically. I started living my life. I stopped being afraid.”

Inspiring, beautiful and enlightening, poems like “Ocean’s Desire” and “Weary Boots” evoke the sensations of life and remaining present in our gratitude.

“I’m hoping it inspires young girls and all forms of women no matter what period of life they’re going through,” says Betsy.

In addition to her poetry, Betsy is the owner of Theodore Cleaning Crew, a commercial and residential cleaning company with over a thousand clients in three states. The company is well-known for its philanthropic efforts in its community, recently offering free cleaning services to anyone with cancer in honor of her father who passed in 2014.

“He was my hero and my rock so I think he would be incredibly proud,” says Betsy.

CUTV News Radio will feature Betsy Theodore in an interview with Jim Masters on June 1st at 12pm EDT and with Doug Llewelyn on June 8th at 12pm EDT.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.

If you have a question for our guest, call (347) 996-3389.

Return of the English Bulldog

His is the only hope of a fragile world

He is back and fighting mad

If you are lucky, your Guardian Angel chews a cigar and sips brandy

Sir Winston Churchill is back after 50 years dead to save a fragile world one more time. Return of the English Bulldog, mystery and paranormal.

A delightful and captivating read, from a truly imaginative new talent!”

— Jeffery Deaver

CHARLOTTE, NC, USA, May 28, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — I
am not a terribly imaginative person. We should settle that question right now. So, when I look into the corner of my office, in the Victorian chair, and see Sir Winston Churchill relaxing there, with legs crossed and a cigar in one hand and what appears to be a brandy sniffer in the other, I am stunned. As a practicing psychotherapist, I am seldom surprised by any-thing I see or hear, as I tell my clients quite often. However, I must admit, I may have been overly confident of my tolerance for the astonishing.
I glance around the room to satisfy my desperate need for a reality anchor. A cluttered oak desk, a bulging barrister book-case, a scuffed steamer trunk, two white Victorian wicker chairs (one occupied by the decreased Prime Minister), and a stylishly faded velvet chaise are quirky, yet solid. Excellent! The walls continue to be coffee brown and white trim still surrounds the Palladium window. Window is still peeking into my tiny courtyard. Courtyard and vegetation are present and accounted for! Outstanding! Now we are getting somewhere! The sign on the door says Dr. Raven “Bones” Wyndot, Psycho-therapist. This is unquestionably my office. Perfect! I touch my face; yes, face is mine. Whew! My confidence is restored. Warning to self, insane and confident we are not mutually exclusive states.
Somewhat reassured, I return my attention to the illustrious Sir Winston. I recognize the great English statesman at once, because he is my hero. There are dozens of books written by him or about him sitting on my nightstand at home and in the barrister bookcase behind me. My amazement turns to curiosity, I am unusually curious by nature and it takes over. I wonder if he can speak, and then he speaks. “Dr. Wyndot, it is quite pleasant to see you today. Do you have more brandy?” Ah, that answers one question, he can speak. Now, I wonder if I can do the same… I manage to croak…uh, no, uh, Prime Minister, uh, Sir Winston…I have Diet Coke (add circle R after Coke for registered trade mark – it’s a legal thing) in the frig. I grin my apology. Sir Winston is not impressed. We are not off to an encouraging start. In my defense, when one has been dead since 1965 and then abruptly appears in my counseling office without an appointment, one must take what refreshments one can get.
I must admit he looks remarkably fit. In fact, he looks very much as he did in photos when he became Prime Minister in 1940. Naturally, the question on my mind is, “Why is he here?” followed closely by, “How the hell is he here?” Truth-fully, as a psychotherapist, I am rightfully concerned about my mental state, Delusional Disorder and other highly undesirable disorders flood my mind with frightening possibilities. That is one of the problems with being a therapist, one knows entirely too much about the likelihood of a mental breakdown occurring at any moment.

Teaching in a foreign country sounds exciting – and it is – But..

Before you respond to that ad to teach in a foreign country you will want to read Michael Durack's latest book

Michael Durack book had insight I was looking for. I had always wondered what it would be like to teach English in Asia. This book is a must read if you are thinking of teaching abroad.”

— James Klien

LONG BEACH, CA, USA, May 25, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Before you respond to that ad to teach in a foreign country , or to travel the world and seek your fortunes abroad you will want to read Michael Durack's latest book – “Conversations With A Deaf Cat”. It is a well written book about teaching and working abroad. He chronicles his “Adventures” teaching English and working in a foreign country. He did find adventure, excitement, and it was definitely a change, but it might not be what you would expect.

Synopsys: Conversations With A Deaf Cat – (And Other Confessions of a Foreign English Teacher)
Ever wonder what it’s like to work in a foreign country, experience new foods and cultures and maybe find a way to help other people while you do it? Most people who become foreign teachers imagine going off to some exotic destination to share their knowledge with people who don’t have the same advantages as them. Sounds like an exciting and noble adventure, right?

But what happens if you take the plunge and go off to another country where you don’t even speak the language and EVERYTHING GOES WRONG? How do you deal with getting stuck doing a job you never wanted to do, dealing with deceptive employers, or not getting paid on time, if at all?

Conversations With a Deaf Cat explores the true adventures experienced by Michael Durack as a foreign English teacher and/or volunteer in China, Chile and Canada. It also chronicles his experience as an assistant caregiver along with his wife for his mother-in-law’s final months in the Netherlands. In short, it provides an insight into the highs and lows of being a foreign teacher/volunteer/caregiver in a foreign environment that is a must-read for anyone contemplating a similar career or simply interested in knowing what it’s REALLY like.

Novel-Like History Explores the Rise And Fall of the Woodstock Country School

WOODSTOCK, VERMONT, USA, May 25, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Laurance Rockefeller was one of the early, reliable benefactors of this co-educational boarding school in Vermont, at a time when co-ed schools still seemed audacious.

Actor Larry Hagman of “Dallas” fame, best-selling authors Susan Cheever (“Drinking in America”) and Amy Wallace (“Sorcerer’s Apprentice”), as well as other future luminaries were students at the school.

Respected among educators for both its innovations and high standards, the Woodstock Country School was cherished by those who taught and were taught there, even as it struggled and finally failed to survive its 35th year.

Now the story of this noble adventure is told in fascinating detail in William Boardman’s WCS – Woodstock Country School, A History of Institutional Denial. This 505-page volume brings to light the virtues and shortcomings of the remarkable people who created the school and then tragically sealed its fate.

The Woodstock Country School rose on the wave of American energy and idealism following World War II. During its first 20 years, it was an exciting, successful, esteemed experiment in American education – one that could still be thriving now.

Founded in 1945 and closed in 1980, WCS was a co-ed boarding school that during most of its history had fewer than 100 students in grades 9 through 12. In the mid-1960s the school introduced North America’s first-ever four-semester, 12-month academic year, now widely known as the Woodstock Plan. For its first decade, the school occupied an idyllic campus in Woodstock, Vermont. After a fire destroyed the classroom building, the school purchased the sprawling former Upwey Farm in South Woodstock, where it resided for its final 25 years.

Boardman’s absorbing history reads like a novel, as dozens of characters struggle first to build the school, then to save it. Despite good intentions, their effort foundered on frailties, irresponsibilities, and a fatally imperfect understanding of what made the school so magical for so many.

"You could call it a Rorschach history," says Boardman, who attended WCS from 1952 to 1956 and taught there from 1971 to 1976, "or maybe a history collage, since there are so many voices telling the story, each from his or her own perspective, yet there is a remarkable shared perspective of an essentially ineffable institution."

WCS – Woodstock Country School, A History of Institutional Denial, from Yorkland Publishing (yorklandpublishing.com), tells the story of the school's rise and flourishing, even as it relied on charismatic headmaster David Bailey, whose dominance shaped the institutional denial that proved too strong to allow the school to survive.

David Pliner is now seventy-nine years old and has embarked upon a new career, and this is his first book. Writing has been a lifelong ambition, but this is the first opportunity he had to write as he has retired to become a full-time caregiver. He studied American and British literature and poetry in college. He served in the US Army both active and reserve for seven years. He just finished his new novel which is now ready for publication.

New Book to Help Interior Designers Be as Exceptional Marketers, as They Are Designers

Marketing the Luxury of Interior Design by Pamela N. Danziger

Interior design business is disrupted by new competitors out to steal market share. Designers need more effective marketing strategies.This new book shows how.

Designers dedicated to providing customized, professional interior design services need new marketing strategies to succeed in today’s competitive, rapidly changing and complex market. ”

— Pamela N. Danziger

STEVENS, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, May 24, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The traditional business of interior design has been disrupted by a rapidly growing range of competitors out to steal market share from designers’ elite clientele. Designers must fight back against the onslaught with more effective marketing strategies. This new book, Marketing the Luxury of Interior Design, will show designers how.

More retailers are moving upscale with increasingly sophisticated design resources (RH, Crate & Barrel). Others are offering complimentary design services (Ethan Allen, Pottery Barn, West Elm) and emerging internet-age etailers and design services (Wayfair.com, Havenly.com) offer the promise of ‘internet-easy, internet-fast’ design solutions. What these competitors share is expert marketing.

Complicating matters further, consumers are increasingly taking a do-it-yourself approach to home design and decorating challenges, empowered by HGTV and other sources of information that portray a oversimplified and unrealistic picture of home improvement projects.

Pamela N. Danziger, president of Unity Marketing and an authority on luxury market, has written a guide for interior designers to combat these disruptive influences with powerful marketing. With a foreword by Cary Kravet, President and CEO of Kravet Inc., a leader in to-the-trade design resources, Marketing the Luxury of Interior Design, it gives designers the most up-to-date tools of luxury marketing to help them super-charge their marketing and branding strategies.

“Designers dedicated to providing customized, professional interior design services need new marketing strategies to succeed in today’s competitive, rapidly changing and complex market,” Danziger says. “To win in this new marketplace, designers must be exceptional marketers, as well as exceptional designers.”

The opportunities & challenges of marketing interior design services

The best potential interior designer customers are the affluent with high incomes and discretion to spend. To succeed in marketing their services, designers need to understand the motivations that drive the affluent customers their purchases. This is where luxury marketing strategies come into play, because interior design services are first and foremost a luxury, not a necessity.

Luxury consumers today have a much wider range of home products to buy and places in which to buy them than they did a mere two years ago, not to mention five or ten. And many of these new competitors are offering complimentary interior design services, positioned to compete against independent professional designers, in order to attract a more discerning and affluent customer.

On the plus side, the marketing opportunities for professional interior designers are huge. Unity Marketing’s research reveals that at any one time between 40-50% of affluent consumers are currently engaged or planning a major home improvement project. “That represents a great potential market for interior designers who can assist and support these affluent customers select the right furnishings to improve their homes, enhance their enjoyment of their home spaces, and increase the home’s investment value,” Danziger explains.

But designers are challenged to make the value of their services clear to target consumer. “This is where interior designers are failing,” Danziger says. “And that is the power of marketing.” UM’s research shows that less than one-third of those engaged in such projects used the services of an interior designer. What’s more, among those luxury consumers who used the services of an interior designer, a significant share (43%) turned to a designer provided by a retailer for advice, rather than to an independent professional.

This is a sobering finding, as it indicates independent professionals are losing the marketing battle against retail competitors offering the illusion of professional design support at no added cost, though these ‘designers’ are most often sales people masquerading as professional designers.

About Marketing the Luxury of Interior Design

This concise book is a designer’s guide to marketing success. Based upon research that author Pam Danziger, president of Unity Marketing, is known for, this book identifies the best clients for interior designer services and reveals how to reach the target customer with branding and marketing that connects.

With a foreword by Cary Kravet, President and CEO of Kravet Inc., a leader in to-the-trade design resources, this book helps prepare interior designers to be more proficient and effective marketers as they confront today’s changing market for professional interior design services.

Opportunities/Photos: Interview with Ms. Susan Burton and book signing visuals

Who: Ms. Burton is the founder and executive director of A New Way of Life Re-entry Project. As a formerly incarcerated woman, she understands the challenges people, especially women, face when leaving prison. After more than 20 years in and out of the criminal justice system, Ms. Burton was unable to find work, housing or addiction-recovery treatment. In spite of those obstacles, Ms. Burton mercifully gained freedom and sobriety in 1997 and made it her life’s work to help other women who walk in her shoes.

"The guard told me, 'You'll be back' and I came back. I came back and led women up out of that place," said Ms. Burton​ on The Daily Show​ with Trevor Noah. Watch the entire show here:http://www.cc.com/episodes/162ngi/the-daily-show-with-trevor-noah-extended—may-17–2017—susan-burton-season-22-ep-22109

Becoming Ms. Burton is her heart-wrenching journey to bring real change to the narrative about mass incarceration. Her crusade is likened to a modern-day Harriett Tubman. "I know that what I do rescues people, allows them to have an analysis of what's happening in their lives and breaks them free of the criminal justice system," said Ms. Burton on the Tavis Smiley Show.

Ms. Burton continues to take her message on the road with a national book tour and making the rounds with media appearances coast to coast. "I do the work because it needs to be done, so I picked up the banner to help women escape the prison system," said Ms. Burton who spent two decades in and out of prison. "I found the support, the services, and treatment in Santa Monica, California and brought it to South Los Angeles."

As a result of her relentless work, she has garnered numerous accolades and awards including named as a CNN Hero, the recipient of the James Irvine Foundation Leadership Award, and being named by the Los Angeles Times as one of the nation’s 18 New Civil Rights Leaders.

Ms. Burton has helped more than 1,000 women out of the system.
