Author Patricia Brill to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

KEMAH, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, February 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dogs love us unconditionally. No matter how bad our day is, or moody or tired we feel, how we look, or how much money we have, our furry friends have the wonderful capacity to love us to the moon and back. This special bond inspired an extraordinary woman to write books that capture the life lessons dogs teach us.

Patricia Brill is the award winning author of The Dog Tales Collection which includes Porsche Bella’s Forever Home, The Road to Recovery is Paved with Dog Treats, Don’t Say Goodbye Just Say See You, Do Bad Dogs Get Cancer, and No Treats for Bullies. Her personal experience with family, friends, neighborhood children, and her dogs inspired her to write these books.

“Since my books teach such pivotal, heart-warming lessons to children and adults my hope is to one day get them into vet clinics and schools,” says Patricia. “These books are a powerfully effective tool for parents to help their kids understand the tremendous advantage of bonding with their pets. It encourages the younger generation to save lives by fostering and adopting shelter animals when there are such a staggering number of loving dogs in need of forever homes.”

Patricia’s books each contain wonderful educational ways to help people overcome issues they may have with their animals. The road to Recovery is Paved with Dog Treats commendably encourages children to consider becoming vets. In Porsche Bella’s Forever Home children are urged to save lives by fostering and adopting shelter animals in dire need. Don’t say Goodbye Just Say See You helps children deal with the intense sorrow of pet loss by providing uplifting reassurance that our dogs go to Heaven. Knowing you will be with them again someday brings us unequivocal joy and comfort. No Treats for Bullies deals with overcoming bullying and Do Bad Dogs Get Cancer helps children deal with the effects of cancer and understanding how to help their beloved pets if they are stricken.

“My dogs are the stars in my books,” says Patricia. “Boxster, Turbo, Carrera, Porsche Bella and Cayman are all rescue dogs. The colorful vibrant illustrations by Curt Walstead captures the expressions and emotions of the dogs brilliantly.”

“Dogs bring comfort, happiness, and loyalty,” says Patricia. “They epitomize unconditional love. My dogs acutely sense what I’m feeling. I look forward to all our adventures every day.”

Patricia has generously donated thousands of her books to hospitals and veterinary clinics, written grants to her local no kill shelter, and holds benefits, fundraisers and silent auctions to raise money for shelter animals.

“The best qualities you can possess is loyalty, compassion, and genuine friendship,” says Patricia. “Our beloved animals teach us that and we need to raise awareness for more people to understand the importance of valuing our pets. That’s what my books wholeheartedly deliver. ”

CUTV News Radio will feature Patricia Brill in interviews with Doug Lewellyn on Tuesday February 19th at 2 p.m. EST and Tuesday February 26th at 2 p.m. EST with Jim Masters.

Black Sand Anthology as the Ultimate Edition is Released

Author Larry Farmer to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

CALDWELL, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, February 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Great fiction requires the same sense of adventure as great journalism and the same willingness to experience the fullness of life, the good and the bad. Great writers like Ernest Hemingway immersed themselves in life all over the world and shared what they observed through fictionalized accounts.

Like Hemingway before him, Larry Farmer wants to tell real stories: stories of his adventurous life and from his adventurous imagination. Farmer is the author of The Kerr Construction Company, I Will Be the One, Overland on the Hippie Trail, Seeing Gail Again, A Thousand Miles from Nowhere, Rendezvous with Fay, through Wild Rose Press. His most recent novel My Journey Into the Oncoming Holocaust, is self-published.

“I've seen and done so much. I didn't want to just write another zombie novel or outer space novel,” says Farmer. “I want to be a writer, but I don't want to be a writer just to tell a story. I want to say what I want to say. I want the reader to see life through my eyes. There's a real world out there that I wanted to relate.”

Born in Harlingen, TX in 1948, Farmer grew up on a cotton farm. In 1970, he enlisted in the US Marine Corps, where he served as an enlisted man attaining the rank of Sergeant. He’s worked as a computer programmer in Houston, a civil servant in Frankfurt, Germany. He aided the Jewish State in the Yom Kippur War. He was in Greece in the summer of 1974 when the war with Turkey erupted over Cyprus. He’s taught English in Taiwan and earned a master's degree in Agricultural Economics. In 1984, he joined the US Peace Corps and served for three years in the Philippines during the Catholic revolt that overthrew the Marcos.

With a life like that, Farmer says his stories write themselves, his job is simply to piece it together and shape it.

“I joined the Marine Corps to go to Vietnam and I probably saw more danger while I was in the Peace Corps,” says Farmer. “There was a girl in the Peace Corps with me in the next town, so there's a love story. It only enhances the story. It’s something people can identify with. How do you not write a novel about that kind of stuff?”

Combining his adventures with a love story was something Farmer says he learned from his first editor.

“I got my first short story contracted and accepted,” recalls Farmer, “but my editors convinced me to expand it into a novella. It was a day-in-the-life adventure story, but I mentioned there was a girl. My editor said, ‘Why don't you expand on that?’ She didn't require it; she just said it would make it better. If it’s just a pure adventure story can run into dry areas trying to get from one scene to the next, but if you've got a love story, it keeps the story moving.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Larry Farmer in an interview with Jim Masters on February 20th at 5pm EST.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.

How to Achieve and Maintain a Positive Mental Attitude? Author Veera Mahajan Explains

“UNREPORTED; Learning to LIVE” Author Veera Mahajan, Photo Credit: Leonard Monje.

"Unreported: Learning to LIVE Free" Author Veera Mahajan Reveals How to Achieve and Maintain a Positive Mental Attitude, and How to Get Self-Discipline

If you are constantly getting bad results from the doing the same thing over and over, you have to stop being merely "optimistic," and be "realistic.”

— Veera Mahajan, author; "UNREPORTED: Learning to LIVE free"

MALIBU, CALIFORNIA , USA, February 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Esteemed Author, Mediator, and Public Speaker; Veera Mahajan is one of Malibu’s most valued community leaders. The beautiful and intelligent woman is also author of the critically acclaimed book “Unreported: Learning to LIVE free," about recognizing and overcoming domestic abuse and stopping domestic violence. Veera Mahajan is also a highly praised Educator, Mediator, and Publisher, having created and published the landmark publication "Malibu Chronicle."

Veera did an exclusive interview with The Hollywood Sentinel recently, and the following is the second part of an excerpt of that highly valuable, important and educational discussion, concerning how to improve one's life through self-esteem, and a positive mental attitude.

Veera Mahajan; Exclusive Interview, Courtesy of The Hollywood Sentinel:

Hollywood Sentinel: You have stated that love is stronger thank hate. Please explain further why this is?

Veera Mahajan: It all starts with how much you love yourself. Since our childhood, we are taught to be nice to others and love others. Most of us are not taught or encouraged to love ourselves. Most of us never learned self care. Since the very beginning, we are made to feel bad about taking care of ourselves. We are told it is selfish if we think about our own happiness. So we learn to take care of other people and when we don’t get the care back, we start building resentment. We expect people we care about to care about us and when we don’t get it, we are disappointed and hate it. Hate makes us fight and be mean to each other. If we teach our children to love themselves, they will have better expectations from their relationships. We expect less than respect because we don’t love ourselves enough to believe that we deserve the best.

Hollywood Sentinel: That's powerful. What is the best way to get self-discipline?

Veera: The best way to get self-discipline is having a positive goal. Once you make a goal, it helps to make a plan and steps of how you are going to reach that goal. Have a ledger of constant positive growth steps you have taken to achieve the goal.

Losing Weight

For example; if the goal is to lose excess weight, you have to have a clear final weight goal. Come up with a plan for workout and healthy meals including foods and times. Then try to stick to the plan. If you make a mistake, it may take a few mess-ups before you can stick to the plan, but don’t give up. Keep an eye on the goal. It helps to have a visual reminder, like keeping a skinny picture of yourself or someone else you would like to look like when you reach the goal. Periodically weigh yourself to make sure you are staying on track and not going too far off the goal in the opposite direction. Don’t buy clothes in bigger sizes. Be uncomfortable in smaller clothes till you fit in them comfortably. When you reach your mark; Hooray! You stayed disciplined and you attained your goal.

Hollywood Sentinel: That's great. do you feel it is always important to be optimistic? Why or why not?

Veera: It is definitely important to be optimistic most of the time. When you or anyone is working hard and smart towards any goal and you have setbacks on the way, it is good to stay optimistic and not give up. You learn from your mistake of what not to do, and what to do next time until you reach your goal.

But, if you are constantly getting bad results from doing the same thing over and over, you have to stop being merely "optimistic," and be "realistic," and realize that "doing the same things in the same way and expecting different result is insanity," and find something else to do. Just like living with an abuser, who keeps promising to try and be better next time, buys another time for them to keep hurting you, you need to stop being simply "optimistic," see things for what they are, and make the change.

Hollywood Sentinel: I love it. What is the best way to achieve and maintain a positive mental attitude?

Veera: A healthy mind, and a healthy body! Taking care of your physical health by regular workout's and maintaining healthy eating habits will make you feel better about yourself. Feeling good about yourself is very important for making sure you respect yourself in all aspects of your life, whether it is in business or personal situations. Taking care of your physical self lets you see the positive results. Once you learn that positive things happen with healthy habits, it teaches you to build a healthy and positive attitude towards everything else you do in life. So, I think to maintain a positive attitude; maintain a healthy body. It takes a positive self-image and positive mental attitude to maintain good physical health.

The Law Office of Attorney Janet Pittman Reed (N/A:N/A)

The Supreme Court noted that the fundamental principle underlying North Carolina’s approach to controversies involving child neglect is that the best interest of the child is the polar star”

— Janet Pittman Reed, lawyer in North Carolina

JACKSONVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, February 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Attorney Janet Reed, based in North Carolina, has published a new case comment on proper parties and venue in a case involving a juvenile. The complete comment will be published on her Blog at https://janetreedesq.blogspot.com/

Ms. Reed explains that "In re: A.P." is a case about a juvenile named A.P. who was born on August 2, 2015. When A.P. was two months old, A.P.’s mother was committed to a mental health facility in Mecklenburg County. Prior to her commitment, the mother was living in a group home located in Cabarrus County. While in the mental health facility, A.P.’s mother met with a social worker from Cabarrus County Department of Human Services and expressed an intention to move into her grandfather’s home with A.P. upon her release from the mental health facility. During the mother’s commitment, A.P. was placed with the mother’s case worker from the group home, who resided in Rowan County. Cabarrus County transferred the case to Mecklenburg County, where the grandfather resided.

On November 25, 2015, Mecklenburg County received report of a concerning situation and found the mother living in unacceptable conditions with A.P. and the mother was alleged to have used drugs. The mother agreed to place A.P. back with the case worker in Rowan County. Subsequently, the case worker informed Mecklenburg County that she could no longer care for A.P. and Mecklenburg County “filed a juvenile petition with the District Court in Mecklenburg County alleging that A.P. was a neglected and dependent juvenile.” District Court granted the petition.

The mother objected to the petition based on the argument that Mecklenburg County “lacked standing to file the juvenile petition under the relevant provisions of the Juvenile Code, and therefore, the trial court lacked subject matter jurisdiction to hear the case.” On appeal, “[t]he Court of Appeals held that [Mecklenburg County] lacked standing because it was not the proper party to file the juvenile petition under N.C.G.S. § 7B-401.1(a), and it vacated the trial court’s order on that basis.” N.C.G.S. § 7B-401.1(a) provides that “[o]nly a county director of social services or the director’s authorized representative may file a petition alleging that a juvenile is abused, neglected, or dependent”. Further, N.C.G.S. § 7B-400(a) provides that “[a] proceeding in which a juvenile is alleged to be abused, neglected, or dependent may be commenced in the district in which the juvenile resides or is present”.

The North Carolina Supreme Court explained that “this rigid interpretation of isolated provisions in the Juvenile Code is unsupported by the whole of the statutory text and creates jurisdictional requirements beyond those which the legislature intended to impose.” “When read holistically with other provisions in the Juvenile Code, the statutory sections governing ‘[p]arties,’ N.C.G.S. § 7B-401.1(a), and ‘[v]enue,’ id. § 7B-400(a), do not mandate dismissal of the juvenile petition in this case. Although subsection 7B-401.1(a) states that ‘[o]nly a county director of social services or the director’s authorized representative may file a petition alleging that a juvenile is abused, neglected, or dependent,’ the statute does not identify which county director of social services must file the petition. Nor does the statute limit the class of proper petitioners to only a subset of county directors of social services.” (internal citation omitted). The Court explained that this contrasted with how “[t]hroughout the Juvenile Code, the legislature intentionally differentiates between references to a director of a department of social services and a particular director of a department of social services.” The Supreme Court also noted that it’s decision “is guided and supported by our oft-recited recognition that ‘the fundamental principle underlying North Carolina’s approach to controversies involving child neglect and custody [is] that the best interest of the child is the polar star.’” The case is In the matter of: A.P., No. 145PA17.

Clay Clark, Founder of the Thrivetime Show, Welcomes John C. Maxwell, Acclaimed Author, to his Podcast

John C. Maxwell, Acclaimed Author and Speaker

The team’s recent episode featuring John C. Maxwell provided an intensive look at the author and speaker’s personal life and journey.

TULSA, OK, UNITED STATES, February 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Clay Clark, founder of Thrive15 and creator of the “Thrivetime Show – Business School Without the BS,” has been welcoming a slew of popular guests to his podcast in the recent months, recently speaking to influencers such as Jason Khalipa, “The Fittest Man in the World.” Now, he’s had the pleasure of welcoming John C. Maxwell, an acclaimed author and speaker to his successful podcast.

“I’ve always been fascinated by John’s work,” explains Clark, “So just having him on the show was an awesome experience. All the additional information we learned from him was simply icing on the cake.”

The Thrivetime Show allows viewers to “Experience business school without the BS” with Clark and his co-host: optometrist turned business tycoon Doctor Robert Zoellner. The award-winning team has been featured on Forbes, Fast Company, Bloomberg, and Pando Daily. Currently, the podcast has over 1,500 episodes, and has featured Emmy Award-Winners, New York Times best-selling authors, NFL Players, and NBA Players.

The team’s recent episode featuring John C. Maxwell provided information on the author’s life and process, and how he got to the level of success that he currently maintains. “This was one of my favorite episodes yet,” continues Clark, “John was a perfect guest for the podcast. The amount of insight and expertise he has is legendary. It would be a perfect episode for new listeners to hop in and really see what Thrivetime is about.”

John C. Maxwell is an American author, speaker, and pastor who has written many books, primarily focusing on leadership. His books include “The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership” and “The 21 Indispensable Qualities of a Leader.” His books have sold millions of copies, with some on the New York Times Best Seller List.

Maxwell was born in Garden City, Michigan in 1947. An evangelical Christian, he followed his father into the ministry. Since that time, Maxwell has led churches in Indiana, Ohio, California, and Florida. When asked about his motivation when working in the ministry, Maxwell said, “You have to love the people that you are mentoring. You don’t mentor them for what they are going to bring to you. You mentor them for what they are going to bring to the world.”

Today, Maxwell is a leadership expert, speaker, and author. He is the founder of INJOY, Maximum Impact, The John Maxwell Team, ISS and EQUIP. EQUIP is an international leadership development organization working to help leaders. Its mission is “to see effective Christian leaders fulfill the Great Commission in every nation.”

“Helping others succeed is my passion,” explains Maxwell, “If you take a trip up a mountain by yourself, you’re not a leader; you’re an achiever. A leader takes people somewhere. And they take the people not only where they want to go but also beyond where they believe they can go.”

He speaks annually to Fortune 500 companies, international government leaders, and organizations as diverse as the United States Military Academy at West Point and the National Football League. A New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Business Week best-selling author, he was one of 25 authors named to Amazon.com's 10th Anniversary Hall of Fame. In May 2014, Maxwell was named the No. 1 leadership and management expert in the world by Inc. Magazine.

Clay Clark, who over the years has also worked as a business growth consultant, educator, and entertainer of choice for countless clients, is happy that he is able to change lives with messages like Maxwell’s. “This is a way we can do it — on the web,” states Clark, “our mission with this podcast is to help people thrive and live at their peak.”

“Our team has big plans for the Thrivetime Show over the coming months,” concludes Clark, “Our goal is to bring even more guests and their messages forward. We want to influence people as much as we can, one small step at a time.”

In just the latter part of 2018, Smith Publicity placed nearly ten authors on national TV programs including "The Today Show"

We've moved to an even higher level of national media placements, and because we promote great books,have outstanding personal contacts and employ creative pitching, I expect it to increase even more.”

— Mike Onorato, VP Publicity Services

CHERRY HILL, NJ, U.S., February 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Smith Publicity, the most prolific book publicity agency in the publishing industry, boasts a long track record of top national media placements for authors.

In just the latter part of 2018, Smith Publicity placed nearly ten authors on national TV programs including "The Today Show." In February, the agency once again achieved the “the gold standard” of book marketing by securing a front cover placement and an extensive feature story for a client in "People" magazine.

“We’ve always had an unmatched track record in the industry for top national placements,” says Vice President of Publicity Services, Mike Onorato. “We've just moved to a higher level, and because we promote great books, have outstanding personal contacts and employ creative pitching, I expect it to increase even more."

“We have an incredible book publicity team,” adds CEO Dan Smith. “And we’ve developed a system that is unique in book publicity in that we have teams involved in every campaign. Minimally, three publicists including managers are working on every campaign, and sometimes four or even five.”
