FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Global Collection Of Timeless Affirmations Brings Guidance And Wisdom

The timeless wisdom of Gandhi, Goethe, Confucius, Hugo and Nietzsche is just as meaningful today as when their words were first spoken — perhaps even more so, as humanity struggles to right its moral compass in the face of so much uncertainty in the modern world.

Civilization’s Quotations: Life’s Ideal is an extraordinary compilation of the most enduring, inspirational quotations from the greatest thinkers in world history.

Created by songwriter/musician and philosophy enthusiast Richard Alan Krieger, Civilization’s Quotations features 8,000 insightful sayings, organized by theme, to help enrich the prose of writers, inspire the minds of public speakers and provide motivational sound bites for anyone needing a meaningful boost to begin their day on the right foot.

Chinese proverbs, Roman maxims and the wisdom of writers from William Penn to Kahlil Gibran cover themes from humility and patience, to courage, will and action. The topics are arranged in a sequence that begins with birth and progresses through the seasons of the “ideal life.” When possible, each quotation flows into the next like a speech being given by one person creating a seamless stream of consciousness that Krieger calls “poetic quotation.”

While it would make a valuable reference volume, Civilization’s Quotations is meant to be read and digested from cover to cover, so that readers can feel inspired and empowered to learn and live by the examples of history’s greatest thinkers. Its wealth of inspirational affirmations offers a blueprint to guide us toward fulfilling our sense of purpose and becoming greater human beings.

Author Richard Alan Krieger (aka “Crane”) is a songwriter, musician and artist. Krieger was the lead singer/bassist/writer of the L.A. rock band Tragicomedy in the 1980s. The group rec-orded the album Homage to Nada on New Alliance Records. He played trumpet and sang back-up vocals with the iconic rock band the Minutemen and jammed on bass with D. Boon of that group in an improv band called Cosmic Joke. He also played in a conceptual art band with multi-instrumentalist and producer Richard Derrick called Another Umbrella. Krieger’s love of nature inspired him to move to Northern Idaho where he continues to enjoy writing and recording his music.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Romance And The Old West Skillfully Melded In Short Story Collection

If you’re a stickler for historical accuracy, romance in the Old West, and just plain superb writing, Holly Bargo’s short-story collection, Satin Boots: Six Short Romances of the Old West, will more than satisfy your reading needs.

Bargo draws well-developed characters in believable situations, such as the risk-taking woman who finally runs into more trouble than she’d anticipated, a mail order bride whose husband-to-be has changed the rules of the game, and an undertaker who finds himself resurrecting a body he thought he’d be burying.

Set in the American Old West, Bargo’s Satin Boots stories are sweet, clean romances, cleverly infused with history and humor.

Here’s just a taste of these engrossing tales:

• “Angels High:” Making a living winning at a man’s game, Angelica Durant has learned to expect trouble now and then, especially when the stakes are high. But this time, she gets far more than she bargained for when trouble finds her.
• “The Mail Order Bride’s Choice:” Seeking to improve her circumstances, an indigent woman makes a perilous cross-country journey to meet her fiancé, who’s got plans for her ― and they don’t include marriage.
• “Coming Home:” Dessie Humphrey is just trying to hold on to the family farm in the face of seemingly endless hardship. When help arrives in the form of a wanted gunslinger, she’s in no position to refuse.
• “Resurrection:” Undertakers bury the dead; they don’t ordinarily bring them back to life. Antonio DiCarlo does just that when the body of a lovely Swedish immigrant lands on his doorstep.
• “Pride and Peace:” It’s an open secret on the Lazy Five that Jessie North is a woman. That doesn’t stop Daniel Harper from behaving badly when he learns, but when the proud half-breed saves his life, can Daniel overcome deep-seated prejudices?
• “The Rancher’s First Love:” When a gravely wounded Chinese woman collapses on Clint Cheswick’s front porch, he doesn’t expect to be competing with his half-breed foreman for her affection.

Author Holly Bargo works full-time as a freelance writer and editor and lives with her husband on a hobby farm in southwest Ohio. They have two children, both grown. Bargo’s writing includes fantasy and romance, often combined; and since 2014, she has published more than 20 titles, from short stories to novels. In 2019, she and bestselling author Russ Towne published Six Shots Each Gun, a collection of short westerns. While Holly Bargo is a pseudonym, she’d like readers to know that the name was also attached to a very real and temperamental Appaloosa mare.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Out Of Darkness Puts The Bite Back In Young Adult Vampire Genre

Brian Porter’s mysterious, sudden onset obesity makes him an easy target for school bullies—physically and emotionally. Even his one-time best friend has joined in the bullying, teasing Brian relentlessly since his unexpected metamorphosis. Brian hates what he sees in his reflection, too. He hopes that summer break will offer him a reprieve.

On the first day of summer, Brian’s former best friend, Chris, challenges Brian to enter the neighborhood’s scariest house. The trade-off? Chris promises not to tease Brian all summer, and it’s a chance for Brian to impress his new female friend, Sarah. But there’s a dark, toothy reason behind the home’s evil reputation, and Brian and Chris are about to discover it.

Out of Darkness from M. A. Richards puts the bite back in young adult horror, with evil vampires who fight on behalf of Satan to enslave humanity and werewolves who are warriors, fighting for God to keep humanity free.

When Chris and Brian uncover a pair of vampires in the neighborhood “haunted house,” Chris is captured, and Brian finds himself fighting to survive a vampire attack—a battle he’d lose if not for a daring rescue by the vampires’ ancient enemies: werewolves. To save him from a deadly wound, Brian’s lycanthropic allies turn him into one of their own.

Now, Brian is a powerful young werewolf with a strong new body. He’s also become part of an ancient war to protect mankind. It’s his destiny to revitalize the Holy Warriors, a once great werewolf order sworn to protect the world from vampire domination. But the order’s leaders have become corrupt—and worse, they want Brian dead. He’d prefer to keep living.

Author M. A. Richards grew up in the country in Oregon, the fourth of five boys, and enjoyed watching monster movies. He attended the former Ricks College (now Brigham Young University—Idaho) and spent most of his life in the US Marine Corps. He currently lives in Texas with his family. Richards was recently diagnosed with a deadly disease called sarcoidosis. He wrote Out of Darkness for his children. To learn more, please visit https://www.authormarichards.com/.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Unresolved Trauma And Toxic Stress Seep Into The Way We Partner, Parent, Labor And Love

This groundbreaking new book by Dr. Tian Dayton offers a path to healing for the
millions of people who grew up with addiction, trauma, or adverse childhood experiences (ACEs).

Toxic stress and trauma are gaining a rightful place in our country’s national health agenda. Almost two-thirds of people reported at least one adverse childhood event (ACE), and more than one in five reported three or more. When trauma remains unresolved, it can emerge in adulthood as co-addictions, depression, anxiety, PTSD, intimacy issues, and even physical illnesses.

In The Soulful Journey of Recovery, esteemed clinician Tian Dayton offers a way out, drawing on cutting-edge neuroscience, her decades of work as a therapist, and her personal experience as a child growing up in an addicted household. With exercises, journaling prompts, and astute advice from the heart and the trenches of psycho-therapy, Dr. Dayton reveals both a path and a plan to heal.

Discover:

• Why there’s no “normal” for anyone with unresolved trauma—and how to take the first steps to recover.
• The hidden connection between trauma and addictions—and what you can do if you or someone you love is numbing their pain.
• How childhood traumas can make us physically sick as adults.
• How to tell if someone is “emotionally dyslexic”—with ways to build emotional sobriety and emotional literacy.
• Why our biggest triggers can become treasures that lead to a path of healing.

It’s never too late to have a happy childhood. Learn how to change the script with The Soulful Journey of Recovery.

From the Foreword by Gary Seidler:

For those who have grown up in a family with addiction, mental illness, or other adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), the heartache and pain doesn’t end when they grow up and leave home. The legacy can last a lifetime and spread to generations unseen. In The Soulful Journey of Recovery, Dr. Tian Dayton details an action plan for readers based on the best research of the past two decades. Herself an adult child of an alcoholic, Dr. Dayton has devoted her life’s work to help others free themselves from the trauma they thought they had left behind; triggered pain and anger from the past that can derail the present or make relationships unnecessarily stressful. Powerful, focused exercises and meditations will put readers in touch with their creative, spontaneous side, leading to positive life changes. A journey of self discovery, the book presents hope circuits of positive psychology, showing readers how to take themselves from a place of pain to one of presence. Readers will discover that recovery is a self-affirming life adventure, and the kindest and best thing they can do for themselves and future generations.

psychology and a PhD in clinical psychology and is a board-certified trainer in psycho-drama.

Groundbreaking Research Finds Dyslexia And Related Disorders Are Medically Treatable, And Dramatic Improvement Is Possible—Even Partially For Autism/ASD

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Groundbreaking Research Finds Dyslexia And Related Disorders Are Medically Treatable, And Dramatic Improvement Is Possible—Even Partially For Autism/ASD

For more than 50 years, world-renowned clinical researcher Dr. Harold N. Levinson has trained his attention on understanding and treating dyslexia’s hidden origins. He came to view dyslexia as not just a “pure” reading comprehension disorder characterized by reversals, but rather a highly complex syndrome consisting of many and varied symptoms. And he has successfully treated more than 35,000 dyslexics, bringing a much needed depth of understanding, compassion and real help to those failing to cope with the daily challenges presented by this previously misunderstood and often devastating impairment. As a result, bright but dumb-feeling dyslexics—as well as those with related disorders—have been enabled to rapidly feel smarter and smarter.

How did he do it?

His latest book, Feeling Smarter and Smarter—Discovering the Inner-ear Origins and Treatment for Dyslexia/LD, ADD/ADHD and Phobias/Anxiety, explains his groundbreaking findings and his effective treatment process in easy-to-understand language. At the core of his research is his discovery that dyslexia—really its complex syndrome—is caused by one treatable signal-tuning dysfunction within the inner-ear and its supercomputing cerebellum.

In other words, when “dizzy” or scrambled signals adversely affect the functioning of multiple normal brain processors, corresponding difficulties may arise with:

· reading, writing, spelling, math, memory, speech, direction and time
· grammar, concentration/activity-level, balance and coordination
· headaches, nausea, dizziness, ringing ears and motion-sickness
· frustration levels and feeling dumb, ugly, klutzy, phobic and depressed
· impulsivity, cutting class, dropping out of school and substance abuse
· bullying and being bullied as well as anger and social interactions
· becoming emotionally traumatized and scarred dysfunctional adults

Dr. Levinson shares the stories and photos of real patients, young and old, as they reveal both their reading and non-reading symptoms and their rapid, dramatic improvements after using simple and safe inner-ear enhancing medications and nutrients.

Feeling Smarter and Smarter is replete with discoveries and solutions—many that are both surprising and fascinating. For all dyslexics as well as their caring families, teachers and healers, Dr. Levinson’s inspiring work is nothing short of life-changing.

Finally, by similarly treating the coexisting signal-scrambling demon that Dr. Levinson found present in those with major brain processing disorders like Autism or ASD, traumatic brain injury, etc., they too can be helped—not cured. So as Dr. Levinson concludes, “The best is yet to come!”

Harold N. Levinson, MD is a world-renowned psychiatrist and neurologist credited with bringing about a dramatic breakthrough in the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of dyslexia and its related syndromes. His work has resulted in the development of a unique medical-educational therapeutic approach, validated by hundreds of referenced independent research publications. In addition, his new insights and scientific instruments can be used to screen for this disorder before academic symptoms arise—and even prevent their surfacing.

His many scientific papers have appeared in medical and educational journals, and have been reviewed by the New York Times, Science, Time and Smithsonian. He has also appeared on a number of television programs in the U.S. and the United Kingdom, including The Today Show, Larry King Live and Donahue.

Formerly Associate Professor of Psychiatry at NYU Medical Center, Dr. Levinson is currently the Director of the Levinson Medical Center for Learning Disabilities in Great Neck, New York. He has written eight books, including The Discovery of Cerebellar-Vestibular Syndromes and Therapies, A Solution to the Riddle – Dyslexia, a reprinting of his 1980 medical text heralded as “decades ahead of its time” and “a new millennium work.” Feeling Smarter and Smarter is a dramatically updated sequel to his bestseller, Smart But Feeling Dumb.

Are You Raising Or Teaching A Bully?
This enlightening children’s book shows that the key to creating a generation of
kinder, more resilient kids is to stop the first bully they encounter—THEMSELVES!

Words have power. The words others say to us can either lift us as high as the clouds, or drop us down like a crashing plane. But what about the words we tell ourselves? What about that constantly running inner voice? In truth, what we say to ourselves impacts us even more than what others say to us.

“Pigtails are for babies!” she snarled at me. Her words hurt more than the time I broke my arm. I quickly untied my hair. I wore my hair down for the rest of the school year.

That was the first time I met the Big Bad Bully … She called me names like “fatty,” “piglet” and “ugly.” Things are worse now that I am in the 6th grade. Even when I don’t see her, I can always hear the whispers, the giggles, and the growls.

So goes the mesmerizing story of a young girl who grows up with a voice that ridicules and demeans her. In the end, we discover that her tormentor is staring back at her every day in the mirror.

Featuring stunning artwork–and small enough to fit in a backpack–this profound book is a tool for engaging children, young adolescents, parents, and caring adults about the impressions they make on themselves with their thoughts and self-talk. Included are powerful workbook exercises and resources for implementing healthy self-esteem habits that can last a lifetime.
