Image may contain: text

Ascot Media Group knows how to break through the media barriers and gatekeepers to get you the publicity you deserve. See the “full client contact” testimonials here: http://www.ascotmedia.com/testimonials.html.

Almost all the clients that provided these testimonials used our least expensive Select Plan: ($995). For that amount, we will provide a press release (approved by you) and target 10,000 different media personnel each week; a total of 5 times in one month. So your release will be delivered directly into the email box, personally addressed by name, of 50,000 media personnel (producers, editors, hosts and bloggers in the USA and Canada). You will receive several, solid media hits each week for a month—and we make sure you do!

Your media hits start coming in on the same (or next) day your campaign kicks off. Definition of “media hits” means direct requests for interviews and/or reviews after reading your press release.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Phoenix, AZ ― Let’s face it: the dating game isn’t fun for women who always lose.

Alexander Atlas — a man who was used to winning — knows how the dating game works. He played it himself for years before settling down, and watched woman after woman fall for the same tricks.

In his new, brazenly honest dating guide, The Boys You Don’t Take Home: Game Secrets, Atlas takes women inside the male mind and shares his past, one-sided relationship perspective. Using colorful, lesson-packed anecdotes, he introduces readers to the “mama’s boy,” the “bad boy,” the “player” and the “scrub” and shares his tips for spotting their deceitful tricks and traps.

Atlas covers a wide range of topics that include:

• How to identify “Mr. Wrong”
• How to move on from heartache and heartbreak

• Dealing with rejection
• How to use your relationship as inspiration for personal success
• Understanding the signs of emotional abuse
• How to stop wasting your time on unworthy men

Readers may recognize some of their own dating mistakes and disasters between the covers of The Boys You Don’t Take Home, and that’s the point! Atlas wants to help women everywhere make better relationship choices.

Alexander Atlas writes both fiction and nonfiction. In addition to The Boys You Don’t Take Home: Game Secrets, Atlas is also the author of the companion piece, The Girls You Don’t Take Home to Mama (published in 2016).

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Debut Story Shares Inspiring Tale Of Baseball’s Impact On Small Iowa Town

Minneapolis, MN ― In the fictional village of Cottage Park, Iowa, time is best measured not by the hands of a clock but by the innings in a baseball game. In this quiet, northwestern Iowa community where businesses are shuttered and economic stability is scarce, two institutions flourish: the Holy Trinity Church – as spectacular as any Roman cathedral – and the local, dusty baseball diamond.

Set within a single baseball season in 1974, Tommy Murray’s debut novel, Fathers, Sons, and the Holy Ghosts of Baseball, follows 14-year-old T.J., along with a band of misbehaving teens and three cantankerous old coaches, as the high school baseball team makes a concerted push for the championship – a summit never yet reached by the team from Holy Trinity High School.

For the coaches, the elusive championship looms large as they enter their final baseball season before retirement. For the players, the road to the finals is a confirmation by fire – a rite of passage they must navigate before facing the realities of adulthood.

Along this entertaining, coming-of-age journey, young and old alike ultimately learn that you must sacrifice before you can gain and sometimes lose before you can win.

Author Tommy Murray is a retired teacher from the Minneapolis Public Schools. He is also the author of the forthcoming novel, The Empty Set. Murray is married to Mary Ann, and they reside in Shoreview, Minnesota. In Fathers, Sons, and the Holy Ghosts of Baseball, Murray pays homage to his uncle, who led his high school team to its first state championship back in 1943. His uncle went on to enlist in the army and lost his life when his tank unit was ambushed in the Philippines in 1945.

In Murray’s world, where his father, uncles and grandfathers shared their legacies of devotion to church, patriotism and baseball, baseball is life and death. It’s much more than a sport. Baseball is a religion.

Love Researcher Explains Neuroscience Behind Valentine’s Day

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Love Researcher Explains Neuroscience Behind Valentine’s Day

Fort Lauderdale, FL – The legend states that Valentine was arrested and put to death by Emperor Claudius II. Valentine was defying orders and secretly helping soldiers to marry. But why would Claudius II not want his soldiers to marry?

Here’s where the neuroscience comes in. It turns out that when a man marries, his testosterone drops. So, Claudius’ decree against marriage makes biological sense. If you want an aggressive army that will fight your battles, it’s better to have single, highly testosterone-fortified men.

Think that’s crazy? It turns out that lower testosterone is not the only crazy thing that happens to us when we fall in love.

In a dramatic presentation, Love Biologist Dawn Maslar cuts up a brain to show what love does to us. When we fall in love, this is what can happen to our brain:

• We can lose cognitive ability
• We can lose the ability to accurately judge our partner – that’s why they say ‘love is blind’
• We can lose the ability to feel concern if we detect a problem
• We can experience an increase in self-transcendence – being in love makes us feel less selfish and more connected to the world

In addition:

• Our serotonin (hormone of happiness) can fall to the level of someone with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
• His testosterone drops but hers goes up – making her sexually charged
• This effect is temporary – lasting between 1 and 3 years

Don’t worry, while the craziness is temporary, the love CAN last a lifetime. In fact, Valentine’s Day helps since the following can also kick-in:

• Red hearts, cards and clothes boost his testosterone which can increase the romance
• Giving chocolate on Valentine’s Day can boost dopamine – an important neurotransmitter of long-term love
• Doing new and novel things with a partner can also boost dopamine
• Spending quality time together increases oxytocin – the bonding hormone

Dawn Maslar, MS, is an award-winning author, expert guest speaker, adjunct biology professor, and researcher in the science of love. She is a two-time TEDx speaker and her talk on ‘How Your Brain Falls in Love’ went viral last year: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eyq2Wo4eUDg

Uganda Christian Orphanage Building Fund Raiser

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Uganda Christian Orphanage Building Fund Raiser

Houston, TX – Helen Cook, owner of PrimeStar Publicity and Public Relations, has set up a page on GoFundMe.com for the sole purpose of raising $25,000 US dollars to purchase land and start construction on a building to house fifty Ugandan orphans and a small staff of four.

Even though the Light for Orphans Ministry (LFOM) must be registered and licensed with the government of Uganda, they receive no support because they are a Christian ministry.

Their daily needs – food, shelter, medical, clothing and education – are provided by a small group of dedicated donors, about eleven, here in the US and one in Australia.

The “LFOM family” is currently housed in a rented facility that was slated to be a motel, in the small village of Jinja, Uganda, East Africa. However, they have already outgrown the facility that they moved into less than two years ago when their numbers were less than forty.

It would be so wonderful for them to have a permanent home; one where they can continue to grow without facing the need to have to move out once again.

If your heart is moved to do so, you can make donations to the building fund at: https://www.gofundme.com/light-for-orphans-building-fund?ssid=819941954&pos=1

Maybe you would like to become a regular donor for the monthly needs of our beautiful family. If so, you can make donations to Light for Orphans Ministry (LFOM) c/o Helen Cook, 2668 Hwy. 36 S. #127, Brenham, TX 77833.

If you would like more information about LFOM, feel free to contact me either by phone at 903-654-0938 or email, helencook53@yahoo.com.

1 John 3:17: “But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him?”

Bring Value To Your Ideas And Have The Courage To Pursue Your Dreams

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(This press release may be reprinted in part or entirety)

I would like to send a copy of David Thomas Roberts’ new book Unemployable! How to be Successfully Unemployed Your Entire Life in consideration of an interview or review from you. David has been a serial entrepreneur his entire life and the thought of having someone else control his income, schedule, and vacation time terrifies him. In this book David shares a lifetime of entrepreneurial experiences, strategies and principles to show readers how to follow their calling and branch out on their own. David speaks from the heart about his successes and failures and what he learned from those experiences.

America was built on a free enterprise system – and this best-selling author, also known as The Renegade Capitalist™, refers to the term “unemployable” in a successful sense, as a means for people to gain the freedom to control their professional life.

David makes a dynamic guest who can easily engage an audience. Please read the following press release and let me know if I may schedule an interview, or forward a review copy of the book. In the event you might want to run this story, let us know and we’ll be happy to send you a jpg of the author and book cover for your use. Thank you.

Bring Value To Your Ideas And Have The Courage To Pursue Your Dreams

Houston, TX – This may be the best time in history to start a business. Best-selling author David Thomas Roberts, Renegade Capitalist™ and serial entrepreneur since age twenty-one, has created a guide for those who are no longer content to have someone else dictating their daily commute, their income, schedules and vacations. What does it really take for someone to jump off the employment treadmill and participate in the free enterprise system, unencumbered by traditionally accepted myths? Roberts lays out business strategies and principles in his book Unemployable! How to Be Successfully Unemployed Your Entire Life (Defiance Press and Publishing, LLC).

In Roberts’ quest to find new and innovative investments, the best business plan submitted through the Renegade Capitalist™ website (http://renegadecapitalist.com) will be awarded up to $25,000 in equity investment money. He is also available for speaking engagements and consulting services for new business owners.

Always challenging the status quo, Roberts has built a lifetime of success in defiance of accepted business norms which has led him to be dubbed the “Renegade Capitalist™.”
In college, Roberts became discouraged because no one was teaching him what he wanted to understand: how to become an entrepreneur. He then dropped out and within a year opened a multimillion air freight business with his brother. The downturn in the oil industry caught Roberts by surprise and eventually the business failed. Roberts took many valuable lessons from this experience.

Undaunted, Roberts launched another business which he later successfully sold. Roberts has built numerous successful businesses; he is the founder and CEO of Teligistics, a leading multi-million-dollar telecom technology management firm started with $1,000 on a folding card table in a closet. Now, acknowledging the need for more opportunities, classes and degree paths for aspiring entrepreneurs, Roberts has advised major universities and MBA programs on the creation of degree paths and curriculum for entrepreneurial studies.

Roberts has two best-selling political thrillers to his credit, Patriots of Treason (2012) and A State of Treason (2014). Inspired by his four children, he recognized the need for an unconventional business book to share his expertise. Roberts will soon release his fourth book, a continuation of the political thriller series, and is working on several more business books digging deeper into the principles of Unemployable!

Roberts lives with his wife of thirty-four years near Houston, Texas. He has four grown children and two grandchildren. For more information, please visit http://renegadecapitalist.com and http://davidthomasrobertsauthor.com
