On Monday, October 27, Anna Maria Prezio will have as her guest on her Spiritual Animals Radio Show Rev. Dr. Joanna M. Carmichael of Heart 2 Heart Creative Healing and Consulting, Inc. who is a registered nurse, an Interfaith Minister and a metaphysician. She is grounded in science, yet has evolved to being a more conscious and aware individual through her studies in Metaphysics. Her diverse and sometimes paradoxical background has afforded me the ability to see the bigger picture – the plethora of experiences that constitute life on this planet. They will discuss Animal Wellness. Tune in at 8pm EST to www.internetvoicesradio.com.

Rosemary Chaulk hits the Airwaves with Rerun’s Daughter October 18, 2008

Rosemary Chaulk visited for two hours with Portia Berry Allen on her Radio Show, Rerun’s Daughter.  Chaulk’s new book, Nissitissit Witch, has taken her region by storm, touching a nerve with the legendary history of witches in Massachusetts.  The book focuses on the town of North Village, a part of Pepperell MA that was once inhabited by a so-called witch.  Folks died unusual deaths, Indian tribes disappeared and a mist hung over the Nissitissit River, all frightful events for the locals.  Who to blame?  A witch, of course.  But was she a witch or merely an educated astute woman who saw what the massive pollution of our early industrial age was doing to the water, air and earth.  Listen to the show to find out – available at www.rosemarychaulk.com .

Jo Linsdell is a freelance writer and author of ‘Italian for tourists’ and ‘A guide to weddings in Italy’ which are available to buy from www.lulu.com/jolinsdell along with her various ebooks.

Originally from the UK she moved to Rome, Italy in 2001 where she now lives with her husband and their baby son.

She is currently working on the ‘Italian Home Study’ series of ebooks and a pocket size edition of her book ‘Italian for tourists’.

As well as writing she is the creator and manager of the Writers and Authors website (http://writersandauthors.blogspot.com) and she is here today to tell us a bit more about it.


What is Writers and Authors?

A place for people in the writing industry to gather and share experiences, tips and advice. Not to mention promote their latest work and discuss various topics related to the writing industry. Included in this blog you will also find; links to sites for writers, competitions and contests, interviews, writer and book event listings and more…


Why ‘relaunch’?

My baby son was born in December 2007 after a difficult pregnancy, so I’ve been away for a while. Having to spend 8 months on bed rest meant I had a lot of time on my hands, which I used to work on my various writing related projects. The Writers and Authors site was a big success and my plan is to make it even better now I’m back online. To make sure everyone gets the chance to take part and see the great opportunities on the site I thought it was a good idea to have a big relaunch party to celebrate and spread the word.


What changes have been made to the site?

The new format is as follows:
Mondays: Opportunities for writers. This will include paying markets, competitions, online courses etc…
Tuesdays: Featured Authors. This  will include author interviews and samples of their writing.
Wednesdays: Publishers, editors, etc… This section will include interviews with publishers, editors, etc… and explain how the industry works and give helpful advice on the more technical aspects of the writing industry e.g. what they look for, how to query, etc…
Thursdays: Book reviews. This will include reviews about any type of book. I’m particularly looking for reviews about self help for writers books (and related) but will also post reviews about fiction, poetry and basically anything else.
Fridays: Upcoming events. This section will include dates and details about conferences and other events for writers online. Also author chats online, virtual tours etc…
<!–[if !supportLineBreakNewLine]–>

How can people get involved?

For those of you interested in being interviewed for the ‘Featured Author’ section please send me an email (writersandauthors@yahoo.it) giving some details about yourself and your writing. Please also include your website address..

Calling all publishers, editors, marketing experts, cover art designers, etc… I need YOU! To be interviewed please contact writersandauthors@yahoo.com

As you can see, I also want to include a section with book reviews. You are welcome to review any type of book (e.g. self help for writers or a fiction or poetry book). In fact I’ll be all the happier to have a good mix. If your new to writing reviews and want some pointers check out http://library.queensu.ca/research/guide/book-reviews/how-write for some tips. Please send your review in the body of the email to writersandauthors@yahoo.it with ‘Book Review’ in the subject line.
<!–[if !supportLineBreakNewLine]–>

How can people support Writers and Authors?

Nominations (e.g. Writers Digest 101 best sites- any others are good too J), blog postings, interviews, putting a link on their sites, spreading the word to others.


Tell us about the Virtual Tour?

To relaunch this site in it’s new format I’m organising a virtual tour running from October 1st until 31st 2008. Anyone who is interested in hosting me for an interview or featuring the Writers and Authors website on theirs, please send me an email to the new address writersandauthors@yahoo.it with virtual tour in the subject line. A copy of the Virtual Tour calendar is on the site so you can keep track of the events.

So far the tour is a huge success and the Writers and Authors site has become truly international (check out the traffic map online to see who’s visiting).


Coming soon


I’m planning a ‘Christmas Wish List’ feature for December where I will be posting short samples (max 2000 words) from books along with their buying details. The idea is to give inspiration for presents for Christmas. I’m looking for a good mix of genres so there will be something for everyone’s tastes.. As the site is open to the general public and therefore all age groups I will not be posting any adult, erotica etc…

Anyone interested in participating should contact writersandauthors@yahoo.it with ‘Christmas Wish List’ in the subject line.

A new book, “The Optimal Life: Empowering Health, Healing & Longevity,” by noted educator, wellness practitioner and author Dr. Stephen Bizal, DC, is now available.

(I-Newswire) – Newport Beach, CA, October 14, 2008 — A new book, “The Optimal Life: Empowering Health, Healing & Longevity,” by noted educator, wellness practitioner and author Dr. Stephen Bizal, DC, is now available. For the first time from one source, people can understand the basic principles of holistic human health, its context within the greater human condition and exercise simple, easy steps to achieve higher levels of individual health, wellness and human potential.
“It’s all about quality of life issues. Not only do we inherently possess the power and means to achieve a disease-free state, we can actually improve our own state of being,” says Bizal, “while we maximize our own potential as human beings.” The healer further clarifies that true wellness is so much more than the absence of disease, but a more functional level of maximum performance and productivity.

The how-to guide takes the reader through 10 simple steps to higher function as well as the avoidance of disease. “When we understand our own morphology, our basic needs as biological entities, introduce common sense approaches to managing our lifestyles and practice a few key principles, it’s amazing how well the human body responds,” says Bizal. Amassed from years of experience as a doctor, advisor, counselor and teacher, Bizal lays out 10 basic but essential precepts people can employ immediately to improve their mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual health. In the end, readers feel directly in control of their health, empowering the doctor within.

“Human beings are complex creatures,” says Bizal. “Too often in our modern world, we separate and focus on singular issues such as the science of healing and neglect, for example, to integrate how our emotional state contributes to positive changes in the physical state. Simply taking a break a few times a day for a breathing exercise not only replenishes the most essential nutrient to life, oxygen, but effortlessly allows us to relax. The net effect is an invigorated, revitalized organism and a clear-headed, more focused mindset.”

The book has been embraced by the wellness community, earning endorsements and raves from many noted scholars, practitioners and patients from across the nation. For more information please visit www.drbizal.com.

Linda Ballou Finds the Magic in Hawaii with her Book, Wai-nani: High Chiefess of Hawaii – Her Epic Journey October 14, 2008

I love Hawai’i, so when I found Wai-nani: High Chiefess of Hawai’i – Her Epic Journey by Linda Ballou, I couldn’t wait to read it. I was not disappointed. I raced through it, enjoying every vivid moment and cannot say enough about it.

Linda has captured the beauty of Hawai’i and the ancient lore and legend that makes Hawai’ian history so enchanting. Her main character, Wai-nani, is fourteen when the story begins, and we follow her as she becomes the first wife of the soon-to-be high chief of Hawai’i. (based upon King Kamehameha) Her gift is in the water, swimming with the porpoises, befriending them as she catches a fin and flies through the waves with them.

Using her instincts and wisdom, Wai-nani remains her husband’s most trusted advisor and one of his favorite wives throughout his life, while he wrestles with change and the impact of the arrival of the white Christian men who bring both the positive ideas and the decadence of the new world.

An important aspect of any book for me is the quality of writing, and Linda is a faulous writer: “The red apple of the ohi’a tree tasted sweet in my mouth as I watched the drifting plumes of Pele, Goddess of the Volcano, cast shadows upon the shimmering sea. Frothy surf reached my ankles then receded, leaving tiny bubbles of foam upon a blank tablet of sand. The crescent sail of an outrigger flared upon the horizon.” This is the opening paragraph of the book and it only gets better from here.

Don’t miss it!
