  • Mother’s Emotions by Woo-ran Park explores the love-hate relationship between mothers and daughters

    Self-recovery guide offers clear strategies to help mothers reclaim their lives as an independent women and free their daughters from emotional wounds.

    LONDON, LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, July 4, 2022 / -- Why do so many mothers turn more to their daughters than sons when feeling upset or distressed? Why do so many daughters feel guilt and resentment toward their mothers, along with gratitude? Daughters Grow up Feeding on Mother’s Emotions by Woo-ran Park, and translated by Hyo-jin Kim, delves deeply into these questions and sheds light on the complex relationship between mothers and daughters, guiding readers on a path to greater understanding, healing, and freedom.

    Based on more than 10 years of research and over 10,000 psychotherapy and dream interpretation sessions, this ground-breaking examination of the psychology of mothers and daughters unlocks the secrets behind this complex, love-hate relationship. Through in-depth research, Park uncovers much of the reasoning that underlies many mothers’ obsession with their daughters as well as the inability of many daughters to break free from this hold.

    Park pays particular attention to the female tendency to attain self-realization by meeting the unmet needs of others and the blurring of the line between the emotions of mothers and their daughters, who often see themselves in the other. This deep psychological bond between mother and daughter starts to show cracks as they become older, if they have failed to create a healthy distance between themselves.

    The author walks readers through the main conduits through which the mother’s unconscious is passed onto the daughter and highlights how they can break this pattern reclaim their individuality, as women and human beings.

    “I wrote this book to teach mothers and daughters about the psychology that governs their relationships,” said author Woo-ran Park. “I want to help all women understand how they can walk a different path and recover themselves, overcoming feelings of guilt, resentment and gratitude,” “

    Daughters Grow up Feeding on Mother’s Emotions is available as an eBook or in hardback and paperback print editions on Amazon, and other popular book sites.

  • As Alaska Votes, New Alaska-centered political thriller dubbed a winner

    Political thriller of 2022

    Best new thriller

    Author Joe Rothstein

    A heart-pounding adrenaline ride of backroom politics and dangerous moves from a shadow cabal will keep readers on the edge of their seats.”
    — Pacific Book Reviews

    WASHINGTON, DC, USA, June 29, 2022 / -- While Alaska is drawing intense national political interest focused on Sarah Palin's campaign for Congress, a political thriller with a fictional U.S. vice president from Alaska is drawing interest in the world of books.

    The novel is "The Moment of Menace," which the prestigious book review web site Pacific Reviews has named "the must-read political thriller of 2022."

    Written by Joe Rothstein, a former editor of the Anchorage Daily News, the novel features an Inupiat woman from Utqiagvik, (formerly Barrow) Alaska as U.S. vice president. Much of the action takes place in the Alaska Arctic's rugged North Slope area.

    This is Rothstein’s third work of fiction. His second book, The Salvation Project, was finalist for political thriller of the year.

    Joe Rothstein served on the staff of Alaska’s first governor, William A. Egan, and moved to Washington, DC to be chief of staff for Alaska Senator Mike Gravel. For 30 years he headed his own political agency, working in hundreds of political campaigns, including many in Alaska, including those for former Alaska Governors Steve Cowper and Tony Knowles.

    “I feel as if I’ve never really left Alaska,” said Rothstein. “I return often, my sons returned here to go to school, and some of my closest friends are here. I’ve always wanted to include Alaska in my writings. The state is so dramatic and unpredictable. It’s pure coincidence that a wild race for Congress is taking place just as I’m releasing a novel featuring a woman who is Alaska’s voice in Congress.”

    Moment of Menace is available through all on-line book sellers and most independent book stores.

  • Melissa McDaniel Launches Debut Book Release ‘Loved Just As I Am’

    The book is a raw journey that processes her own childhood trauma while helping to alleviate the suffering of others.

    BELMONT, NORTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, June 29, 2022 / -- Melissa McDaniel is pleased to announce the release of her first-ever book, Loved Just As I Am.

    Melissa McDaniel is a National Certified Counselor, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor, life coach, and speaker who has spent nearly two decades helping people transform their lives. She began her career as a therapist for victims of sexual assault before transitioning to working with individuals who have committed sexual crimes to transform their behavior. Grief, anxiety, and depression are consistent issues she deals with from her private practice.

    In her most recent news, Melissa McDaniel has reached her goal of becoming a published author with, Loved Just As I Am. The book is a debut release for Melissa and is a recount of how her idyllic life in the south was changed forever when she was sexually assaulted at the age of eleven. In Loved Just As I Am, Melissa purposefully and painfully examines her past traumas and shares her realization of how she used denial or avoidance as a means of emotional protection until well into her thirties. She shares her raw journey of not only processing her childhood wounds but her struggles as a young woman dealing with a violent ex-boyfriend, racism within her family and community, motherhood, addiction, and infidelity. With her complete understanding of compassion, Melissa hopes her story will help to alleviate the suffering of others.

    “We don't get to pick the traumatic events that happen in our lives, but we do get to choose how we let them write our story,” Melissa says. “Through my own story, I discovered that through deep faith, love of family, and a firm belief that we are all enough, it was imperative for me to own my "crapola," while laying bare my feelings and actions, both good and bad. I hope that my fresh perspective and vulnerability create a roadmap of healing for others like her to rise above pain, shame, and doubt. I truly believe the result is a life guided by wisdom, freedom, and healing.”

    Loved Just As I Am can now be purchased on Amazon in both Kindle and paperback format at

    Ex Libris art prints are wonderful collector items of their own, but there is nothing preventing you to buy the art as a freestanding artwork for your wall.”
    — Magnus Segercrantz
    HELSINKI, FINLAND, June 29, 2022 / -- An Ex Libris (or ex-librīs, Latin for '"from the books (or library)"'), also known as a bookplate, is a printed or decorative label pasted into a book, often on the front endpaper, to indicate ownership. Bookplates bear a motif relating to the book's owner, such as a coat-of-arms, crest, badge, motto, or a design commissioned from an artist or designer. The name of the owner usually follows an inscription such as "from the books of..." or "from the library of...", or in Latin, "ex libris". Bookplates are important evidence for the provenance of books. The earliest known marks of ownership of books or documents date from the reign of Amenophis III in Egypt (1391−1353 BCE) (Wikipedia).

  • Anthony Lambert shows readers "The Hope & Joy That Discovering God Gives Our Lives"

    Christian Book Describes Sense of Fulfillment From Faith

    AUSTRALIA, June 29, 2022 / -- Author Anthony Lambert invites readers to partake in an infusion of spiritual inspiration with his book that immerses them in "The Hope & Joy That Discovering God Gives Our Lives."

    His book is a guide to God (the existence of the divine) and God's promise to believers and faithful people. He explains the relationship between God and believers in God, the purpose of their lives, and the hope that stems from God's plan for their lives. Additionally, he equips his readers with the wisdom to know what is evil and fight it. These realizations are drawn from his own life, which had many large challenges - including 3 and a half years as a prisoner of war under the Japanese, a profoundly handicapped child and many others. The wisdom he gained he shares with his readers to help them in their own life journeys, as they encounter their own challenges and obstacles.

    He asks you "Have you stopped to wonder what your life is all about, why you're here, and where you're going as your life is timing out? You can claim you're far too busy trying hard to reach your goal. Now is the time to stop, reflect, and think about your soul."

    His book was written to thank God for the constant help and guidance He gave the author and to share the fact that this profound help is available to each and every one of us, if we ask for God’s help

    Citizens are Choking and Sickened from Toxic Landfill Gases while Health Agencies Sit Idle

    Agencies talk about the “rotten egg” odor as if it was old food smelling up your refrigerator — but simply put, this mélange of foul smelling sulfuric gases is extremely poisonous and deadly.”
    — M. Aurelius
    CLEVELAND, OHIO, US, June 28, 2022 / -- Garbage and demolition waste pouring out of New York and New Jersey has been happening since the early 1980’s. When it started, Ohio and Indiana residents actively protested against being the dumping ground for East Coast megapolises.

    In 1991, Congressional hearings were held in which they concluded the Interstate Commerce Clause protected the constitutional right of waste generators to haul wherever they wanted — the Midwest protesters were trumped.

    Also, in 1991 the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), through The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act’s (RCRA) Subtitle D regulations, standardized minimum solid waste landfill design criteria and trash management requirements. It seemed while millions of tons of New York waste were being shipped in every direction (including Africa), at least there would be environmental controls wherever it landed.

    The USEPA passed enforcement responsibilities of the new regulations to state environmental agencies like the Ohio EPA, the Indiana DEM and the South Carolina DHEC. Ohio, in turn, passed many of their enforcement controls, like approving or denying the annual landfill license applications, to the local health departments.

    When New York’s Fresh Kills mega-landfill closed in 2001, the shipments to western states intensified. Disposal prices skyrocketed. Lines of trucks a half mile long jockeyed for position at landfill gates in states as far as Iowa.

    Midwest landfills could not resist the massive profits but were overwhelmed with the influx of East Coast waste and the aggressiveness of the New York and New Jersey operators.

    Massive odor, noise, dust, litter and vermin nuisances exploded throughout the states. Due to numerous grandfathering clauses, many landfills were not required to implement the new environmental standards. Groundwater and surface water resources were contaminated wholesale.

    Older Ohio landfills created huge environmental and social problems and the resulting political pressure on the Ohio EPA to take action was enormous. License applications were denied, gates were locked, injunctions applied, and appeals denied. Non-complying landfills were put out of business.

    Disposal prices increased exponentially and waste management became a multi-billion-dollar business in a very short period.

    Waste management companies are a crafty lot and don’t miss much when it comes to seeing loopholes or weaknesses in the laws or regulations, particularly when it comes to making profits.

    Tens of thousands of tons of waste rush into transfer stations every single day located in Long Island and Farmingdale in New York, Newark, Hudson and Paterson in New Jersey, Boston and Norfolk in Massachusetts and Hartford and Brockton in Connecticut — just to name a few. The waste must move out fast and furiously by 6:00 PM before the next ten thousand tons promptly arrives the next morning. Being short of time and long on consequences results in minimal inspections of the thousands of trucks passing through — and the demolition contractors know it.

    Long trains moving west and fleets of trucks moving north, west and south keep this Mississippi River of putrid waste flowing.

    CSX is one of only two Class I railroads in the US and services much of the East Coast and Midwest. They charge approximately $2,000 a railcar to haul waste from New York to Ohio. But garbage and demolition waste—which should be mostly wood, shingles, aluminum and vinyl siding, plaster and drywall—are relatively lightweight materials.

    To cure this problem of having expensive but light loads, the transfer station operators pulverize and shred the in-bound wastes with loaders and dozers until they are dense and consequently unrecognizable. The crushed mess gets loaded very quickly onto the railcars and long-haul trucks which are now cost-effective, if questionable, payloads.

    Better yet for the waste operators, construction and demolition waste (“C&D”, of which demolition comprises 90%) is considered inert or “almost harmless” by regulators and does not need to follow the federal and state regulations that garbage must—and consequently is much cheaper to dispose at landfills.
    The pulverized material looks like raggedy mulch, and no one is able to visually tell if it was garbage, demolition or, for that matter, sewage sludge, industrial or hazardous waste.

    Sewage sludges, hazardous and infectious wastes cost up to twenty times the cost of C&D waste to legally dispose. C&D is at the bottom of the waste price chain but whose toxicity is woefully underestimated by the EPA. Blending illegal wastes with cheap C&D is called “cocktailing” and the practice is alive and very profitable.

    2005 was a pivotal year in Ohio. Their legislature held hearings in Columbus about the huge flow unidentifiable, out-of-state waste as well as the financial restraints and resources of the local health departments who were trying to enforce the new regulations.

    Ohio HB 432 was passed, which was well-meaning but lacked foresight. It banned pulverized demolition waste and gave local health departments and other agencies $1.60 to spilt for every ton of C&D disposed in landfills. This represents millions of dollars to health departments which are typically challenged to pass an operating levy every decade. A legislated conflict of interest was created.

    Every aspect of the current construction and demolition waste fiasco is like death from a thousand cuts for the residents in landfill-burdened communities. Huge landfills in Ohio are creating serious health threats locally while taking 97% of their waste from New England.

    While groundwater protection and methane control have been a paramount landfill issues for the EPA, managing the massive poisonous sulfuric gas issues created by C&D and cocktailed wastes, has been overlooked until recently. Regulatory agencies are stumbling with solutions or downplaying the toxic landfill gas problem due to a lack of knowledge. Agencies talk about the “rotten egg” odor as if it was old food smelling up your refrigerator — but simply put, the mélange of foul smelling sulfuric gases is extremely poisonous and deadly.

    Next: Part 2. Mega-Landfills, unchecked toxic gases, wealthy health departments, sick neighbors, dead pets, outraged communities and heads buried in the sand. Why demolition waste is infinitely more hazardous than acknowledged or understood. Nauseated citizens are screaming from Maine, Virginia, Ohio, Indiana and Tennessee to South Carolina, Kansas and Oklahoma.

    The Firm: Blood, Lies and Royal Succession hits top of the Apple Podcast charts in 13 counties making it one of the fastest growing podcast series in the world

    NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, June 28, 2022 / -- Audology, a podcast production label and distributor of original audio from Empire Media Group, Inc. (EMG), today dropped the third chapter of the hit new non-scripted series, The Firm: Blood, Lies and Royal Succession, an audio documentary that has won over history fans around the globe as it explores the controversies, scandals, and cover-ups of the British monarchy.

    Listen to the latest episode HERE.

    From award-winning Executive Producers Dylan Howard (Fatal Voyage: The Mysterious Death of Natalie Wood, The Killing of Marilyn Monroe, Diana: Case Solved) and Melissa Cronin (Epstein: Devil in the Darkness), and in partnership with the website The Royal Observer™, The Firm has shot into the top 50 on the Apple Podcasts history charts in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, China, and the United Arab Emirates, marking the true global nature of the production.

    The Firm also clocked the top 100 in Japan, South Africa, Hong Kong, Japan, Ireland, Spain, and Germany. Apple's charts are considered the most-watched public-facing measure of podcast success.

    In the latest installment, The Firm revisits the reign of George III—the “misunderstood monarch”who was The King from 1760 until his death in 1820. Chapter Three: The Madness of George III, unveils ​​that the misunderstood monarch was far from being the mad tyrant as portrayed in Hamilton, and was in fact suffering from bipolar disorder, and became the victim of a smear campaign by America’s founding fathers in order to justify the war of independence.

    Throughout his reign, George III was considered one of Britain (and Ireland) most popular and successful kings; putting into place many of the monarchy’s current institutions and traditions, including Buckingham Palace, the Trooping of the Color and the Royal Enclosure at Ascot, defeating Napoleon at Waterloo, which remains Britain’s greatest military victory after the Battle of Britain against Nazi Germany, and becoming publicly known as “The Farmer King” because he was so in tune with ordinary people.

    Despite his success and well-earned fame, royal insiders and historians reveal throughout the newly released podcast episode - The Madness of George III - that in 1789, British parliament passed the Regency Act, which would have given George III’s crown to his son, but he recovered sanity just days before it was to take effect. It is also uncovered that the day after George III’s Golden Jubilee in 1810, he was summoned to spend the last 10 years of his life shut away in Windsor Castle.

    The Firm is written by Dominic Utton, produced by Douglas Montero, and edited by Sean Kravit. The series is hosted by Jonathan Lock.

    Over the next nine weeks, new episodes will be available to download weekly via Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Play, and everywhere podcasts are available.

    'Red Winter Journey', is now available. Paul Rushworth-Brown is fast becoming one of the world's established new authors.

    Modern writers usually don't know what it was like to live in the past but Rushworth-Brown has done this with great skill in this accomplished, atmospheric and thoughtful novel”
    — US National Times

    NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, June 25, 2022 / -- Thomas placed a penny on the bar, “Ales, barkeep.” He turned around, shocked by the wrinkled face that was bent over before him, her whispery white hair poking through the sides of her wimple. Deep wrinkles in her face spread like a roadmap, her left eye almost moonlike with its colour and sadness. A reminder of the poor wretches in the world.

    He had felt the pangs of hunger and would not wish it on any other, “Here, take this and be off with you, feed yer bairns or more likely yer ‘usband that has no more work left in him.”

    She lifted her trembling hand, which was wrapped in a dirty, small woollen mitten with the fingers cut at the knuckles. Thomas placed two pennies in her palm.

    “Would I or any man do less for a mother? For it is a wicked man that spurns an old woman.” Then he thought about his own mother, and it saddened him. William, never the brightest of the two brothers, looked puzzled, “Why’d ya’ do that, Thomas?”

    Thomas smiled, “There’s some in the world far worse off than we, brother, and one good turn deserves another.”
    One good turn deserves another.’ Thomas would one day be haunted by those words.

    Beautiful winter backdrops and compelling action will play out before you as you are transported back in time. You will laugh, cry, and be in awe of the twists and turns, saying to yourself, “I didn’t see that coming". The writing is very descriptive, the hooks are very bold, and told in a way that places the reader in the time and place. So, turn the page and step back in time to follow the Rushworths on their journey of love, adventure and survival in this bittersweet historical saga. All is not as it seems!

    RED WINTER JOURNEY is the tale that follows the journey of 16-year-old Tommy Rushworth and his battle for survival after being kidnapped into the Parliamentary Army to fight against King Charles and the Royalist Army. The brutal winter, sickness, the battle against the Cavaliers and his endeavour to escape from their spies all add to Tommy’s misfortunes.

    His father Thomas Rushworth, and his larrikin grandfather, John Hargreaves, race against time to find and save him from a war they wanted no part of. In Bradford, they fear for their lives until a mysterious stranger enlists their help.

    Back in Haworth, William and Lucy, have their love story tested to the limit by the persecution of social class as Lucy’s father tries to prevent their marriage in the corrupt court of the times.

    Set against the backdrop of the English Civil War of 1642 one can immerse themselves within the tale and discover the more colourful, candid details of what it was like to live in this rebellious time. Will Tommy make it home? Will Lucy and William’s love endure? What is the old beggar lady's part in all this? There are no straight lines only twists, turns and intrigue until the very end.

    The bloody hell of war and the saga of family tribulations drive this period drama with exceptional narrative and factual accuracy of the talented author who penned SKULDUGGERY and is becoming one of Australia’s established new authors.

    Will Baird from Shawline Publishing sat down with Author Paul Rushworth-Brown to discuss Red Winter Journey.



    "The history of these people is rarely thought of and even less rarely written about because there are few records as most would have been illiterate. There is much written about the lords and ladies but what about the common people." Paul Rushworth-Brown - January 2019


    I believe my characters in ‘Red Winter Journey’ are well developed. I believe it is easier for readers to empathise with them. Some readers have said they couldn’t wait to find out if Tommy makes it home after all the trials and tribulations he went through. Then for the story to end like it did, well who saw that coming?

  • Cultivating Strength and Compassion as Caregivers of Dementia Patients

    Dr. Linda Miles

    According to current statistics from the University of Michigan, approximately one in seven Americans has some form of dementia.

    Compassion challenges our assumptions, our sense of self-limitation, worthlessness, of not having a place in the world. As we develop compassion, our hearts open”
    — Sharon Salzberg
    UNITED STATES, June 24, 2022 / -- Dr. Linda Miles, an experienced psychotherapist and author, knows firsthand how heartwarming and heartbreaking it can be to care for a cherished family member who suffers from a chronic condition. Robert, her husband of 33 years, has advanced dementia. Due to this disease, he often doesn’t recognize his beloved wife. Recently, Robert and Linda renewed their vows—a reminder and promise of togetherness till the end. It’s also an embodiment of Dr. Miles’ own advice to all other caretakers: find strength by seeking and creating moments of joy amidst the suffering.
    It was Robert’s idea, and Linda seized the moment. One night when she walked into the bedroom, Robert looked up and told her he had seen her at work many times. He found her smart and attractive, and he wanted to marry her. His memory, in part, was true; they had worked together as colleagues in a mental health center decades ago. He just didn’t remember that they were already married. Linda joyfully said yes to this second marriage proposal; they renewed their vows in the company of their family, with their pastor son’s blessing. 

    According to current statistics from the University of Michigan, approximately one in seven Americans has some form of dementia. As the baby boomers in the United States become senior citizens, the number of people with dementia is expected to dramatically increase. The caretakers of those who have dementia or Alzheimer’s, are often referred to as the “second patient” because of the intense physical and emotional demands of this type of caretaking.

    Research from the National Institute of Health (NIH) shows that when caregivers are motivated by guilt, a sense of duty, social pressure, or greed, they are more likely to feel resentful toward the person they’re helping, and experience psychological distress. On the other hand, caregivers who combine duty with the desire to show loving kindness and genuinely protect the person they care for, experience less psychological distress. Such caring is associated with positive feelings, positive brain chemicals including oxytocin and dopamine, and the increased likelihood of reaching out to others for help and support. The NIH also cites that 55-90% of caregivers enjoy the positive experiences that foster togetherness with their loved ones: shared activities, bonding, spiritual and personal growth, increased faith, and feelings of accomplishment and mastery.

    Lisa Jane Miller, a researcher at Columbia University, has investigated the relationship between spirituality and mental health, and found that spirituality also protects against depression. Those who have regular spiritual practices and strong beliefs are significantly less likely to become depressed. Although the role of a caregiver can be extremely demanding around the clock, those who are most resilient have faith in a purpose greater than themselves. When duty and desire are aligned, there is increased fulfillment and reduced psychological distress.

    As humans, caregivers will still experience moments of negativity and pessimism despite their best intentions and practices. When caretakers feel worn down or burned out by the role of Second Patient, they can access a wealth of resources and practices to help them regain their positivity and purpose. Dr. Miles suggests the following:

    1. Be open to loving kindness in unexpected places. Dr. Miles has been touched by observing the kindness of strangers who go out of their way to help her and her husband. While struggling to get off an airplane to visit family, the pilot noticed Robert’s struggle from his cockpit and came back and helped Linda’s husband off the plane. Once, when she ran an errand, her husband fell on the driveway. A kind stranger—a restaurant delivery person—was helping him back onto his feet when she arrived. Her neighbors, upon discovering Robert’s condition after seeing an ambulance at their house, volunteered their time and help if she needed them. A handyman who came by—who had once been a caretaker for a family member with dementia—offered to be on call as needed.

    2. Take care of personal health. Since caretakers are more at risk for health problems, including lower immunity and a higher risk for chronic conditions, it’s important to practice healthy diet, sleeping, exercise, and stress-mitigating lifestyle habits. Regular medical check-ups are also important.

    3. Practice mindfulness and/or prayer; experts have shown that such practices are very beneficial in preventing or mitigating depression.

    4. Consider hospice. Although many people think of hospice as an end-of-life service, it is available for families who are taking care of someone in the late stage of dementia. They provide hospital beds, regular medical care, certified nursing assistants, music therapy, veterans support services, and respite care if needed.

    5. Reach out to a support network of family and friends. Having a trusted family member or friend to be able to share deep feelings, fears, and frustrations with is essential. Since those with dementia may not recognize their caretaker and may become hostile and aggressive toward them, it is important that the caretaker doesn’t hold in these emotions and instead is free to share their feelings in an honest and open way.

    6. Seek a local or national community that provides support for caretakers and offers knowledge about the disease. Social caregivers tend to be socially isolated, so fostering connections is extremely important to their own wellbeing.

    a. The Alzheimer’s Association can be accessed online; they provide 24/7 help, with professionals on call to provide resources, information, and guidance.

    b. REACH (Resources for Enhancing Alzheimer’s Caregiver Health) provides online instruction, problem-solving skills training, stress management techniques, and telephone support.

    Caretakers of those with dementia can individually become better or bitter based on their capacity for loving kindness toward themselves and others. To overcome challenges and find purpose in life, it is important to find the pockets of light in the darkness. It’s also essential to remember that, as in an emergency on an airplane, it’s important to first secure one’s own oxygen mask before effectively helping others do the same.

Years later, Endaisha pulls on the qualities he learned through those hard times to propel him into the next chapter of his life. He knows the best is yet to come. His simple motto is Start. Grow. Prosper!
