  • 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 /EINPresswire.com/ -- 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, CraveBooks.com and other popular book sites.

  • Latest Book from Bestselling Author Becca Seymour Now Available

    Rules, Schmules! by Becca Seymour

    Author Becca Seymour

    Pride Romance that Challenges Bigotry and Celebrates Love is Love. Gay Romance "Rules, Schmules!" Releases June 29, 2022.

    So much more than a sweet gay romance.”
    — Becca Seymour
    QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA, June 29, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Author of the bestselling True Blue series, Becca Seymour, launches a new book titled “Rules, Schmules!,” releasing June 29th, 2022, wrapping up Pride Month. This title is now available for purchase on Amazon.

    Published under the banner of Rainbow Tree Publishing, the new book promises a sweet and witty gay romance between two college students--one who is fabulously out and proud, the other a closeted basketball player with aspirations of going pro. “Since meeting Kieran, my first, second, and admittedly third impressions of him have changed radically. Not surprising, since he was a prize D during at least two of those encounters. What I should be doing is running from the college basketball star who checks so many of my dream-guy boxes. But do you know how hard it is to find a hot guy who’s as smart as he is talented?” Fans of LGBTQ+ romances will undoubtedly be eager for the romantic escapism and the tease of the popular “opposites attract” trope.

    "Having embraced my twink identity when I was sixteen, and with hours of practice turning insults into a part of me that I embrace and love, I’m no stranger to hostility or acting up or out. Not that it can’t be exhausting. Heck, it’s the reason I didn’t pursue drama. Putting on a performance in everyday life was a drain, so studying it as well would have pushed me over the edge. " – from "Rules, Schmules!"

    This full-length novel is set in small-town Georgia and features a feisty twink and a closeted basketball player as they tackle challenging stereotypes. However, the drama will also lead to some sweet moments between the two men which will surely tug at any reader’s heartstrings.

    But this story is much more than a sweet romance. It delves into the harsh realities of dealing with homophobia and the fear of coming out for professional athletes in America.

    “The notion of 'compulsory heterosexuality' for professional athletes is rife and debilitating,” said Becca Seymour, author of “Thicker Than Water.” “I wanted to write an upbeat, fun romance that not only challenges systematic homophobia but also creates an 'ideal" world of athletes who empower and support their friends,” she added.

    "When their paths cross at a college party and sparks fly, it looks as though all the best-laid plans and rules mean absolutely nothing. You will love Rules, Schmules! if you crave opposites attract, hidden relationships, and steamy chemistry," said bookstagrammar Bookish.jka

    “Rules, Schmules!” is now available for order on Amazon at https://readerlinks.com/l/2559195

    One of Mr. Pineapple's several daily inspiration.

    When you're inspired, you become inspiring”
    — Steve “Mr. Pineapple” Mathieu
    MONTREAL, QUEBEC, CANADA, June 26, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Quoted by The Pineapple Theory: What was still is…

    Throughout Earth timeline, several Methodologies took birth and still lives today. Methodologies providing perspectives to understand life and humans emotionally better. Remove the illusions of their storytelling and the raw concept can be seen. Their raw concept is their purpose: Assist humans to live happily, together. To live happily together starts within each one of us because when we experience positive emotions, we become positive with others.

    What ever floats your boat?

    What if life was like a river? To onboard the journey, you need a boat, and you need to be the captain. Sadly, the river cannot flow smoothly all the time. Various levels of storms are to expect. Storms influence by nature, yourself, and others. When they do happen, does your boat float? Do you remain the captain of your boat?

    Because The Pineapple Theory views that theoretically, everything is like a pineapple, let us reapproach the above with a philosophy of the theory.

    What if life was like a river? To onboard the journey, you need a boat, and you need to be the captain. Your boat can be a pineapple sliced in half. Perfect curve, awesome shell, and a positively authentic bow. Your sweet pineapple boat is your foundation, and it keeps you above the water. Inside the boat, the inner sweetness, define as you. You are the captain of your pineapple boat, the leader, and its engineer. To remain above water, your pineapple boat will require maintenance, improvement, and passengers of your choosing because sadly, the river cannot flow smoothly all the time. Various levels of storms are to expect. Storms influence by nature, yourself, and others. Have you engineered a pineapple boat that floats when there are storms? Your pineapple boat, are you able to navigate it when there are storms? Following each storm, no matter their intensity, will require you to maintain and improve your pineapple boat to keep it floating on the river of life. Because life always flows forward, it does not plato. Therefore, you should always be moving forward with it. What is passed is now behind you.

    The journey will make you learn everyday, become a problem solver, and become positively curious with various tools to assist you to keep your pineapple boat floating, keeping you sweet, and make it a positive experience for the passengers onboard.

    The pineapple fruit is an inspiration and symbol because theoretically, everything is like a pineapple! Following your reading of The Pineapple Theory books, you will never look at a pineapple the same way again. Because Pineapple : Human, what if following your reading, you’ll never look at yourself the same way again? Discover the pineapple that you are!

  • Red Winter Journey is Here, Will Baird Sits Down with Established Australian Author Paul Rushworth-Brown

    We all know how famous the Bronte sisters are but I am sure Paul Rushworth-Brown – the 21st-century author ­– might soon be joining these literary giants."  A must-read novel too for anyone visiting Haworth.  John Ackroyd, Haworth

    RED WINTER JOURNEY By Paul Rushworth-Brown

    "Throughout the book, I kept thinking that this author has a very uniquely talented writing style."

    A dark and dramatic prose of love, family and war that brings the realism of history to your imagination with little effort…a great read!

    Paul Rushworth-Brown's novel Skulduggery, nominated for the best Indie Book Award

    US National Times

    '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 /EINPresswire.com/ -- 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.

    A CONVERSATION WITH THE AUTHOR (Listen here)

    WHY DID YOU WRITE ‘RED WINTER JOURNEY’? WHAT WERE YOUR INSPIRATIONS?

    "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

    HOW DO YOU CREATE OR MODEL YOUR CHARACTERS TO FIT THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE STORY AND THE EXPECTATIONS OF THE READERS?

    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?

She listened closely as the unfamiliar words fell from her mother’s lips. All at once, the mother focused her gaze on the burial spot. Both of her daughters did the same. The younger one caught her breath as a small, green sprout began to emerge from the dirt. The sprout continued to grow, and within seconds, the trunk of a tree began to form.” - from "The Remembering Tree"

    Dr. Margaret Aranda - Takes Part in the 2022 ALA Annual Conference - Displaying her Authored Medical Book

    Dr. Aranda has had success in improving quality of life for many with this unfortunate diagnosis with her protocols. Thank you for this comprehensive book, Dr. Aranda!”
    — Kris from Amazon Customer Reviews
    LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 21, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The Guidebook to Low Back Pain: Diagnosis and Treatment written by Dr. Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD, will be on display at the 2022 American Library Association Annual Conference from June 24th to 27th, 2022. This guidebook focuses on different ways to pinpoint low-back diagnoses that either existed at birth or were acquired at some point in a person’s life. Additionally, it details various methods of treatment to alleviate, if not completely eliminate, the pain it’s causing to millions of people around the world. In about three weeks, numerous brilliant authors across the country and many more book lovers from all over the world will attend this prestigious event at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center and nearby hotels in Washington, D.C.

    The author, Dr. Margaret Aranda, is a Stanford and USC-trained anesthesiologist with specialty training in Critical Care and Forensic Science. Throughout her career in the field of Medicine, she has been very passionate about addressing people’s day-to-day health challenges. This passion to help others grew even more after a high-speed car accident involving herself, her then two-year-old daughter, and a distracted driver of the offending vehicle, which occurred over a decade ago. Although Dr. Aranda’s daughter was unharmed, that tragic accident resulted in a traumatic brain injury for the doctor, crippling her for years. At the lowest point of her life, Dr. Aranda lost everything that the world holds dear—one's home, family, and relationships—but also found a profound faith in God through which she was able to see with crystal clear vision the greater purposes and plans God has for her.

    Things were not easy for Dr. Aranda and her family, especially during the first months and years following the accident. All the activities that were once easy to fulfill have become so much more demanding of her energy and efforts. She needed more help and support from the people closest to her, more than she ever had before. She spent years in a wheelchair and then in a walker, before finally being able to walk again.

    As she started getting her life back after a total of 12 long years of being bedridden and disabled, Dr. Aranda became a strong voice representing the entire population of those living with disabilities, including those that are invisible at first glance. She became a recipient of the Invisible Disabilities Association's Perseverance Award in 2012 and is now the Vice Chair of the organization, continuously serving the purpose she realized several years ago.

    To further fulfill her mission of assisting others as a Medical Practitioner and as someone who has personally experienced physical immobility for a while, Dr. Margaret Aranda has written and released Guidebook to Low Back Pain: Diagnosis and Treatment in hopes of answering all back pain-related concerns that could be disrupting people’s lives and quality of living. Dr. Aranda credits Dr. Forest Tennant, Dr. P.H. for showing her a myriad of diagnostic modalities and management plans that enabled her new Pain Protocol to focus on not only covering the pain but from healing its source from the inside out. It includes over-the-counter medications and supplements, as well as opioid and non-opioid prescriptions. Furthermore, the Foreword is by Dr. Tennant, who in turn credits Dr. Aranda back with taking his practices "far beyond" his hopes and dreams.

    This guidebook not only teaches you the different forms of back pain, but also provides diagnostic images to help you and your doctor make the right diagnosis, plus some tips on how you can negotiate through Insurance and the medical system to get your formal diagnosis and treatment in the outpatient clinic setting. Dr. Aranda also recommends specific tests, blood work, and studies commonly found with chronic back pain, like adrenal gland, thyroid problems, and Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT).

    With a proper and accurate diagnosis of your back pain problems, you can also get the most appropriate treatments that would finally allow you to get the sleep and comfort you deserve. All these will lead to what everyone wants to resolve in their pain-filled lives: better self-esteem, a feeling of inclusion in the family, re-established relationships, and increased quality of life.

    So, if you suffer from back pain, especially if it is 24/7, or know someone with chronic back pain or Failed Back Surgery Syndrome (FBSS), this book is ABSOLUTELY for you.

    Grab your copy now via Amazon, and don’t miss your chance of seeing her book exhibited at the 2022 American Library Association Annual Conference.

    The seedling pots are made from common industrial minerals and form part of an agricultural container product line to be progressively offered from July 2022.

    SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES, AUSTRALIA, June 20, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The magnitude and urgency of challenges associated with the disposal of plastic pots is acknowledged by both governments and industry around the world, and whilst several initiatives, such as the EU's approach of "Re-think plastics" and refund strategies are currently being actively pursued, the fact remains that very little progress has been made towards finding and implementing sustainable solutions based on appropriate technologies. Consequentially, the bulk of agricultural planting containers, made of low-quality plastics, continue to be discarded in landfills or incinerated.

    Dr Aharon Arakel, the director and chief technologist of Pact Renewables said, “Our mineral-based planting containers, collectively known as dPOT planting containers, offer wide-ranging applications from household gardening to horticulture, reforestation and mine site land rehabilitation, and we are pleased to coincide our announcement with World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought, that we celebrated on 17 June, and highlights the need for increasing resilience of agricultural practices in many drought impacted regions and countries, whilst reducing the use of plastic planting containers burdened with high life cycle costs.

    Dr Arakel went on to say, “As we announced in our January press release, we have over a number of years developed, systematically assessed, and confirmed the applicability of our mineral-based composites technology for the production of degradable feedstock for manufacture of plantable containers. An overriding objective which we have now largely achieved is generating a microenvironment within these degradable containers that offers high water retention capacity for healthy and uninterrupted plant growth, from seeding to mature plant stage. We have found that having a seedling pot with the ability to provide a controlled pH and a low watering frequency requirement is ideal for healthy plant growth in remote areas, whether it is an arid zone or a mine site requiring rehabilitation; and we believe that our seedling pots are the right solutions for such applications. This has necessitated undertaking a rigorous product performance assessment program, using a variety of prototypes of seedling pots and self-watering pots that incorporate old plastic pots as outer lining, as well as pots for growing herbs and flowers that thrive in certain soil pH ranges. Based on our findings earlier this year, we finalised the micro-engineering design of the products for various market segments before completing the related techno-economic evaluations. I am now pleased to announce that commencing from July this year the dPOT seedling pots, as our introductory product line in both standard and nutrient enriched versions for domestic use in Australia, will be available through our affiliated business arm, dCore Australia.”

    Dr Arakel went on to conclude, “With a high technology readiness level for our degradable planting containers and a rigorous IP protection strategy already in place, we are now ready to provide access to our technology to interested parties for worldwide commercialisation of dPOT planting containers via technology licensing, product-based JV partnership, contract R&D for product optimisation, related advisory and training services or any other mutually acceptable arrangements. I welcome enquiries and requests for further information from the interested parties; we are particularly keen to partner in projects where our soil degradable planting containers and our in-house skills for design rethinking of agricultural pots can be beneficially applied to address the menaces of climate change, such as water shortage in agriculture and reduction in reliance on plastics in mine site and forest revegetation projects.”

The brand which launched on Gratis and Trendyol, one of the most well-known platforms in Turkey, has attracted great attention. The brand, who signed an important distributorship agreement in the United States in April, will soon have products take their place in the American market.

    After the "Save Ralph" video which was popular in 2021, the dimensions of animal testing were seen. Following the video which caused public reactions, cosmetic brands were examined closely by customers, and cruelty-free brands became a preference.

    This was exactly the starting point of the Maru.Derm brand. Thanks to the products produced with completely natural ingredients, it has taken its place in the market as a vegan and cruelty-free brand.

    "Maru.Derm's philosophy is based on producing products that are natural, safe, and offer long-term benefits. They are produced from plants grown without the involvement of dangerous chemicals, herbicides, or pesticides. This means they don't contain any hard chemicals, parabens, phthalates, mineral oils, PABA, petrolatum, paraffin, or any animal ingredients. This is what makes our product range incredibly effective, safe, and powerful." - MaruDerm Founder, Altug Aynur

    Despite the fact that the brand has just recently emerged, it has started to grow in a short time thanks to this philosophy. Founder of the brand, Altuğ Aynur who believes that beauty should always come from the natural, stated: "In recent years, people have desired to reach beauty through natural ways. At Maru.Derm, we wanted to meet these expectations."

    — Steve “Mr. Pineapple” Mathieu
    MONTREAL, QUEBEC, CANADA, June 19, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Steve “Mr. Pineapple” Mathieu is a Canadian Author & Writer that has captured the essence of self development & spiritual knowledge with his books titled The Pineapple Theory.

    In the attainment of bringing out the best character in oneself, one must follow The Pineapple Theory principles and exude confidence in the theory of the pineapple.

    Mr. Pineapple’s theory shares those pineapples can be in many shapes and forms, such as, a pineapple can be person or a galaxy. A hindsight the pineapple can be us, humans, that can adapt in many different situations. It shares a philosophy that will improve positive interactions socially and in the workplace.

    The Pineapple Theory follows the order of the stem being the highest emotion and the bottom of the pineapple being the lowest form of emotion which also connects to the spiritual practices of David R Hawkins. The bases of all emotions need to be let go and with that in mind, we all start from an innocent “baby pineapple” that we are already sweet. Then we continuously grow to become mature and sometimes, we get molded by life’s challenges.

    Mr. Pineapple has put four books to maintain this sweetness in ones’ character and daily, he posts something new, authentic, and fresh on social media and his blog.

    Following your reading, you will never see a pineapple the same way again!
