Thank you, John Ricciuti of Radnor Studio 21!


Yesterday, my friend and Writestream Publishing business partner Lisa Tarves and I sat down for a fun, informative interview with John Ricciuti, host of a talk show on the local cable TV station, Radnor Studio 21. Prior to the formal interview we’d met with him at Minella’s Diner, where he immediately put us at ease with his engaging sense of humor and easy-going style.

We really enjoyed our time in the studio talking about our individual, professional backgrounds and our work together with Writestream Radio and Writestream Publishing. The episode will air in a few weeks, when the studio will also post the YouTube video to their channel. Lisa and I, of course, will embed and share it across all of our platforms as well. Stay tuned. 😉

Thank you again, John!

Always wanted to write a book but not sure where to begin? Writestream Publishing, LLC could be a solution.

Lisa and Daria believe everyone has a valuable story to share with the world and have a mission of making the writing, editing, independent publishing, and social media marketing process effective and affordable.

“As an independent author myself, I understand the challenges of the publishing process. I often felt overwhelmed and had no one to call or even email for assistance. That’s where we’re going to be different. We’re making independent publishing as simple as possible and will hold our clients’ hands every step of the way. Whether it’s a case of writer’s block or ideas for cover design, we’re there,” Tarves notes.

“As a seasoned ghostwriter, editor, author, and social media professional, I know how important it is to listen to a client’s needs, make good recommendations, and provide top-notch service. At the same time, it must be affordable. That’s why Lisa and I priced our services competitively and posted them on our website, so there are no secrets or hidden costs. We work with individuals on a case-by-case basis and even offer payment plans if needed,” DiGiovanni adds.

The two founded Writestream Radio Network in March of 2013 for the purpose of helping authors gain additional exposure and connect with a wider audience. With the addition of Writestream Publishing, Writestream Radio will also play an important role in the company’s promotional efforts on behalf of clients. Writestream Publishing will stand out in the independent publishing business as unique because of the social media expertise, the rare professional editing of each and every book released and the continued promotion through not just social media, but their popular radio network.

“Ms. DiGiovanni is an impassioned champion of good old-fashioned stories.”


Griffis__Cover-640x1024Very thankful for this wonderful testimonial:

“Writestream Radio” is the right place to go.  Ms. DiGiovanni is an impassioned champion of good old-fashioned stories.  Old-fashioned meaning they’re free of political cant, have something of a moral center, and are just plain entertaining.  She was a delightful interviewer who encouraged me to talk about my process and the story itself, something that I as an introvert don’t do easily, but Daria made it fun and I even learned things about my novel I hadn’t realized until her thoughtful questioning revealed it to me.  Short version:  she’s great.”

Miss Abigail Rich, International glamour model,  Playboy Playmate & 2015 Cover Model of the Year (1)After months of consideration and deliberation, I am thrilled to announce that the beautiful, inspiring Abigail Rich is hiring me to help her pen her memoir! In a surprise move, Abigail made the announcement during our interview on Love Liberty & Lip Gloss last Thursday night. To say I am thrilled about this project would be a huge understatement!

Abigail is not just a pretty face and hot body; she’s an incredible woman who has overcome tremendous obstacles in her life, including a nearly fatal helicopter crash that ultimately led to her unanticipated career. She is living proof that you can not only overcome and survive, but actually thrive — no matter what. Her can-do Texas attitude is inspiring and admirable.

At this point, we’re planning to produce a book within the next 12 months but as with all writing projects, that time-frame can change. I’m looking forward to assisting her with telling her remarkable story and sharing her unbreakable spirit with the world.

May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month


Ah, spring is here, soon to be followed by summer! And for my northern friends who have endured another long, brutal winter no doubt plans of spending plenty of time outdoors are in the works for the warm weather season.

And why not — especially after suffering through months of cabin fever, thanks to endless snowstorms and biting cold?

But while you’re enjoying the balmy breezes, blue skies and moderate temperatures, be forewarned: the threat of Lyme Disease is even more prevalent this year, thanks to the abundance of snow this past winter. Via Karen’s Lyme Story, click on this must-read article on the topic.

Karen joins Lisa and me on Thursday, April 30 at 7 p.m. Eastern on Love Liberty & Lip Gloss to share her harrowing journey to recovery from Lyme and her advocacy work on behalf of both Lyme sufferers and medical professionals. Don’t miss it!

Read the press release below and contact me if you’re interested in interviewing Karen.

Although May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month, Karen’s Lyme radiates hope and awareness of Lyme year-round.

Karen Franks’ harrowing journey through the complex world of Lyme disease led to the creation of a comprehensive website where Lyme sufferers and medical professionals can discover practical information, help, and hope.

Broomall, Pennsylvania – Although May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month, former nurse and pharmaceutical rep Karen Franks has made it her mission to advocate, inform, and educate Lyme sufferers, their loved ones, and medical professionals about this little-known yet insidious disease 365 days a year.

She is the proprietor of the comprehensive site Karen’s Lyme, where she not only shares her own journey of diagnosis and recovery but also provides readers with the resources they need to overcome Lyme – a debilitating infectious disease spread by ticks that the medical community at large has yet to fully recognize and properly diagnose and treat.

Having finally located a Lyme-literate doctor and benefited from a successful, individualized protocol, Franks has now set her sights on helping fellow Lyme-sufferers to do the same. “Sadly, my Lyme story is all too common,” she notes. “Because I had not only worked in the medical field but also the pharmaceutical industry, I thought I would have been well-informed. Yet until I personally experienced Lyme — and consequently became a member of a highly misunderstood world — I hadn’t realized just how little I knew about this debilitating disease.”

Franks is also working in tandem with the International Lyme and Associated Disease Society (ILADS) in an effort to educate medical professionals. She spearheads the accreditation process for nurses who attend the Annual ILADS National Medical Conference, where they can receive CNE credits. The next conference takes place from October 15 – 18, 2015 at the Marriott Harbor Beach Resort in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Understanding the power of social media, Franks is a frequent guest on internet radio to talk about her work. She’ll appear on the women’s lifestyle show Love Liberty & Lip Gloss on Thursday, April 30 at 7 p.m. Eastern to share her thoughts on Lyme Disease Awareness Month and offer suggestions on how to prevent Lyme during the summer months when most people are happily engaged in outdoor activities. She also has a large presence on Facebook and Twitter where she shares information gleaned on the web in addition to her own blog posts.

To find our more visit Karen’s Lyme, where you can also contact Karen personally. She takes the time to respond to each and every email, with the intention of helping others to benefit from her own experience.

With the warm weather upon us, there is no better time to read up on how to prevent and treat Lyme disease. What do you need to do to protect yourself from Lyme?
