Ascot Media Group (Press Release) – Southlake, Texas, April 25, 2011 – They aren’t suggesting you cajole your spouse into bed with the plaintive wail, “But honey, it’s doctor’s orders!” Some might try that approach, of course, but the physicians who wrote “Stay Young: 10 Proven Steps to Ultimate Health” are simply saying that sex is good for you.
It’s all there in Chapter 8 – by far the most talked-about pages of “Stay Young” (George House Publishing, 2010), a hot-selling book from authors Mark Anderson, MD; Walter Gaman, MD; and Judith Gaman, health expert and public speaker.
The book’s cover depicts an attractive, naked couple cuddling under the sheets, so you know right away this isn’t your typical health and wellness guide. But don’t go looking for pure titillation in Chapter 8. The doctors present their case in a straightforward, convincing manner and support it with case studies and facts. But there’s no denying they have turned health into an – ahem – exciting topic, and when’s the last time you saw the word “sexy” next to healthcare?
“The fountain of youth can be found between the sheets,” said Dr. Anderson, who, along with the Gamans, runs Executive Medicine of Texas in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. “Frequent intercourse causes the brain to release human growth hormone, which helps maintain youth.”
Dr. Gaman points out that “middle-aged men who have sex five times a week can lower the risk for prostate cancer by 33 percent, compared to those that have sex only five times a month.”
Judy Gaman adds another startling fact: “Vigorous sex three times a week for a year is the equivalent caloric burn as walking 75 miles.”
Staying Young: 10 Proven Steps to Ultimate Health is the first health book to include a weekly orgasm chart so readers can log their number of orgasms and how long they engaged in sex each day.
Is more always better? Whether or not a point of diminishing returns exists, Dr. Anderson is convinced that “having sex can increase your immunity. A recent study showed that sexual intercourse at least three times a week can increase IGA, a protein that acts as an antibody by binding to pathogens that enter the body.”

Ascot Media Group (Press Release) – Dallas, TX, May 29, 2011 – Dave Cunningham, author of Travel Within: The 7 Steps to Wisdom and Inner Peace says it all with: “Terror on the Border is a gripping story. The last 120 pages will take you on a breathless ride.”
With stories of Mexican drug cartels and the devastation they wreak taking center stage in daily news reports, the realism in Ernie Hunt’s latest novel, Terror on the Border (Unrivaled Books), will have readers gripped by fear and unable to put the book down!
Ernie Hunt knows how to capture the attention of readers. Fans of his pulse-pounding, epic adventures will be thrilled to learn that Jack Cassidy, the fearless ex-sniper from previous novels, is back – and he wants justice! Now married to Juanita Delgado, herself a victim of human trafficking, readers share his heart-stopping journey as the pair set out to heroically fight a malicious cartel led by egotistical Hernan Cortez and his evil enforcer Manuela, in an attempt to help the poor citizens of San Miguel, Mexico, a town ravaged by violence inflicted by the Los Lobos gang.
Trouble looms when Juanita’s cousin Orlando, an American Border Patrol Officer, is kidnapped by the notorious Lobos while he is on duty. He and Juanita, who was also taken hostage, manage to escape the torture chamber where they were being held for ransom by Cortez who hoped to make their rich uncle pay for their release. After their daring escape, they reunite with Jack and two private detectives from Dallas as they try to warn their uncle of the impending danger from Cortez. The action escalates in bloody confrontations near the border and the unexpected twists and turns of this thrilling novel grab the reader’s attention and hold it all the way to the explosive ending!
Ernie Hunt’s gripping novel might be fiction, but unfortunately narcotics and human trafficking are only too real. The story pinpoints real-life drug cartels – and one in particular that is born of Mexican Army Special Forces deserters whose members include corrupt former federal, state and local police officers. Sadly, the human slave trade in Mexico is a $20 billion a year enterprise, second only to drug trafficking that is estimated to bring drug cartels around $64 billion a year from sales to users in the United States.
Ernie Hunt has lived a very diverse life in places like California, Texas, Missouri, New York and even Paris, France. He is the author of five dynamic novels whose stories embrace a similar goal – to promote a common sense of human decency amongst practitioners of all faiths worldwide.

Ascot Media Group (Press Release) – Champaign, IL, May 28, 2011 – Women are always able to identify with another woman when it comes to the pain inflicted by a philandering husband. This appears to be one reason we have become a nation hooked on other people’s reality, but there comes a time when we want to understand more about ourselves – who we really are and what we are all about. American Suite is a hilarious new novel, along the lines of Sex and the City and Bridget Jones’s Diary, that is written in a down-to-earth, real style and captures the craziness of real life in America today.
American Suite (Jorge Pinto Books, Inc.) by Diana Sheets encompasses the diaries of three intelligent and sophisticated women from an affluent, Protestant family whose views often clash and whose diary entries frequently contradict one another. The story centers on Arisa, a thirty-something single woman who ditches her long-time partner and her career in Manhattan for a new life as a writer in the Flatlands – at the same time severing all ties to her widowed mother and married sister.
Falling in love with the first male Flatlander she meets causes her more heartache when she finds out he already has a family. Going back to New York for Christmas becomes an even bigger mistake what with family problems and finding out her old partner has a new love, so Arisa returns to the Flatlands before fleeing to Schlectenberg where she falls in love with a screenwriter and Hollywood director. The relationship ends when she discovers he has filmed their debauched relationship as material for his new movie, Legs Wide Open! She again returns to the Flatlands, together with the director’s Doberman, to write about her sordid affair in her memoirs. Life gets even nuttier, and consequently more hilarious, as the Doberman relieves a Peeping Tom of his “family jewels” and Arisa falls in love yet again – this time with an ex-con!
The mother of Arisa and Sophie is Rosalyn, whom God has challenged by making her Christian. Her poignant story is of loss – her husband of forty-four years and later a new partner, and of anger when she is discarded by her children. Inconsolable, she converts to Judaism and writes her memoir, The Hadassah Chronicles.
Sophie also has her own set of problems – her husband loses his job and she can’t stop herself lusting after her son’s tutor! When her three sons embrace conflicting religions, sailing becomes the one thing that unites the family – that is, until their boat gets damaged during a race. Sophie’s family, Arisa, and the ex-con boyfriend decide to celebrate a multicultural December holiday in New York with Rosalyn that turns out to be a huge disaster – and Sophie’s diary ends with her embarking on her own memoir, Sophie’s Seven Simple Steps to the Perfect Life.
This hilarious adventure comedy concludes with the Peeping Tom breaking into Arisa’s house, seeking revenge for the loss of his virility. Shots are fired, television viewers are urged to stay tuned for the latest breaking news, and there you have it – a glimpse of today’s real American family – not perfect, but thriving despite its dysfunction!
American Suite is a zany, moving tale that celebrates the strength and resilience of these three strong women and delights in the complexity of life’s journey. It is a novel guaranteed to make us re-think our ideas about romance, family and identity, forcing us to seek the truth about ourselves.
American Suite has received rave reviews and has all the makings of a box-office smash hit. Please visit http://www.literarygulag.com for more information on Dr. Diana Sheets.
Ascot Media Group (Press Release) – Houston, TX, May 28, 2011 – We know that autism is a physical condition that is linked to abnormal biology and chemistry in the brain and affects the brain’s normal development of social and communication skills. Silently Seizing: Autism’s Hidden Syndrome (CJL Publishing) by Caren Haines, RN, is a breakthrough book that explores what most doctors won’t tell you – that in some cases the symptoms of autism are caused by seizures undetectable with standard diagnostic tools.
This is a first-of-its-kind book that explores this little-known but crucial relationship between autism and seizures that has been hidden until recently, resulting in a heartrending outcome for children who are not receiving effective treatment because the seizure element is not addressed. That is, until now. Thankfully, because of innovative clinicians and researchers who acknowledge that in order to accurately diagnose autism it is imperative to look for seizure activity in the brain, there is help.
Many doctors have seen first-hand that children show measurable gains when treated early on for seizures and many of these children actually end up having their autism diagnosis replaced with a diagnosis of Temporal Lobe Epilepsy (TLE), which is easily manageable with the right medications. As the doctors who have generously shared their wisdom in this book understand – if an unrecognized seizure disorder turns out to be the culprit then treating it can produce a miracle of healing for these children.
Caren Haines, the author of Silently Seizing, is a registered nurse with extensive medical experience. She has done exhaustive research for her notable book, together with input from parents of autistic children, as well as help from colleagues and medical experts. Caren has already helped families coping with this strife to become free from the debilitating episodes of seizure and psychosis which can literally bring a family to its knees.

Shreveport, Louisiana, May 28, 2011- If you’ve ever been cheated on, wondered why the guy never calls when he said he would, or can’t seem to get past the bedroom when you start dating a guy, Rodney L. Demery’s candid book, Things My Daughters Need To Know: A Cop and Father’s View of Sex, Relationships and Happiness (The Demery Group Publishing) will help get you answers to these relationship dilemmas by examining the dating habits of this self-proclaimed serial dater.
After working for over two decades on homicide, sex crimes, narcotics and armed robbery investigations, there is little that could shock or surprise Detective Rodney Demery, and he shares both his professional and personal life experiences as an investigator and a dater as a way of helping women see their lives and loves in a different way so they can learn to read their own dating situations better and hopefully change the outcome.
Rodney Demery’s own life was shaped by murder when his mother was shot in the back nine times by her husband, and having his life framed by infidelity may be part of the reason he could not settle down. He admits he earned the title in the past of ‘bad boy’ where women were concerned, but is quick to express that he’s learned to be better and, as a result, his life is filled with hope as he looks for lasting love. Gritty and raw at times, his book is an honest portrayal of one man’s sexual escapades, troubled relationships, and journey to maturity.
In Things My Daughters Need To Know, women will get honesty and a straightforward approach to relationships from a cop/father’s point of view, and learn valuable information such as why abstinence helps get you the man, why career women end up single, what men really think when you show up in a skimpy outfit, how technology is helping men juggle women, and whether a cheater will really leave his wife for you!
This virtual guide to understanding men is the perfect legacy for Demery to leave his daughters – one they can put to good use and better prepare them in their choice of men and relationships.
