The End of Prejudice with Kelvin Smythe


Ever wonder why the left and right think so differently?

Join me for Writestream on Tuesday, June 23 at 1 p.m. Eastern when my guest is Kelvin Smythe:

Kelvin is the author of The End of Prejudice, a book which deconstructs and explains both left wing and right wing ideology. Kelvin is a long time grassroots activist who came to see the big picture where it comes to modern politics after taking a break from the game itself. Kelvin has lived in Vermont, Washington D.C., Austin, San Diego and is currently in New Orleans.

We’ll engage in a thoughtful, informative analysis of left and right to give listeners a thorough and accurate understanding of political ideology and how it affects our freedom as American citizens. Please tune in for a great interview on Tuesday, June 23 at 1 p.m. Eastern.

About the Book:

An ideological epic! The End of Prejudice is a book of ideologically epic proportions as it definitively examines and explains both modern political ideologies, taken from their true origins and extended to their furthest ends.By decoding and translating the alien ideas of the left and the right, the reader will be left with no doubts over what divides society and, with such an understanding, will be clear as to what would reverse this division and set civilization on a path toward harmony. By making the most complex of ideas simple and understandable, The End of Prejudice is not only enlightening but also exhilarating and quite often hilarious as an added bonus. If the puzzles of politics have interested you or infuriated you, you will be able to congratulate yourself after reading this book, for those mysteries will have been solved.

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?

Visit Karen’s Lyme today.

Writestream Radio: Big Plans for 2015


People have asked me why I set up a Go Fund Me account for Writestream — as if the rest of the world doesn’t routinely do so for much more frivolous and serious reasons. But since the question has come up, let me take a few moments to respond on my blog. I founded Writestream Radio Network two years ago for various reasons:

  • To be a built-in marketing arm for my clients once we released their books
  • To promote independently published authors in a variety of genres
  • To cater to diverse tastes and interests

My ability as a ghostwriter, editor, blogger, social media consultant, and internet radio host has no bearing on the current Go Fund Me Campaign we’re running. I’m a small business owner, sole-proprietor, which means I use my brain and my God-given talents to make a living. Ghostwriting just one book demands a significant amount of time, energy, effort, and commitment — which is why experienced ghostwriters charge a minimum of $8,000 for a 200-300 page book. That does NOT include formatting, consulting with a graphic designer, managing the self-publishing process, or setting up blogs and other social media accounts.

In an attempt to make hiring a ghostwriter more accessible to the greatest amount of people possible, I came up with competitive rates that include the above-mentioned services. Basically, I do more for less. And judging by these testimonials, my clients are very happy with my work.

But back to Writestream.

Lisa Tarves and I share the responsibilities for growing this network, which entails a significant amount of time spent booking guests, setting up episodes, blogging about them on our site, and then promoting them constantly before and after the interviews. Up until this point, we haven’t charged our guests a dime.

However, Writestream costs us money including Blog Talk Radio membership and website hosting, just to name a few. This year, we’re working hard on a collaborative marketing venture, a website redesign, and plans to launch our own publishing company by the end of the year.

To help defray costs, I set up a Go Fund Me account a few months ago. If you would like to contribute, please visit If you’ve been a guest on our network (on any of our programs) we hope you’ll consider sending us a testimonial about the experience. Contact me here.

Lisa and I would like to thank everyone who has cheered us on over the past two years, and of course, all of the folks who have contributed to our fund. We’re passionate about our work as authors and social media marketers, which is why we’ll continue to work hard to produce quality programming and books.

Soon we’ll be unveiling our new site but in the meantime, please like us Facebook and follow us on twitter.
