Four Years of Writestream Radio

Four Years of Writestream Radio

Thanks to LinkedIn, I received a reminder that Writestream Radio is now  four years old. Between out-of-state visitors and Writestream Publishing projects, I’d forgotten all about it. It’s hard to believe, but at the time I was freelancing as a ghostwriter, copywriter, content writer and blogger. I thought an internet radio network would help my clients (and other authors) become more comfortable with discussing their books.

After publishing the first edition of Water Signs in 2008, I soon discovered that people were as interested in me as they were in my novel — which surprised me a little. That’s when I realized how critical it was for indie authors to put themselves out there in cyberspace and real life. Having spent the previous four years co-hosting a political show, I saw firsthand the power of internet radio to connect authors with their audience. And since many authors I knew had an aversion to public speaking, it also provided a non-threatening forum to discuss their work since it’s off-camera. (Ah, the days before Facebook Live 😉 ).

With that in mind, I contacted Lisa Tarves and John Gresham to ask if they wanted their own shows on the network. After they happily accepted, we began airing the Sunday of the first week of March 2013 with Just Believe with Lisa Tarves.

Sadly, our friend John Gresham passed away in July of 2016, but his memory and voice live on in the form of multiple excellent Military Monday broadcasts, which can be accessed on our Blog Talk Radio Show Page.

Today, our network broadcasts a variety of unique, uplifting, and informative programming:

Just Believe with Ilene Gottlieb ~ The Heart Healer

The Mentor In Me on Writestream Radio

Create Your Life with Tasha Chen

Partners in Crime with Sue Coletta and Kimberly McGath

The Formula with Jefferson Keith Langley

Love Liberty & Lip Gloss with Donna Lyons

Speculative Fiction Cantina with S. Evan Townsend

Get Fit Feel Fabulous with Britt


After a several month hiatus, I’ll be back to weekly hosting on Wednesdays at 11 AM Eastern, beginning on April 5 with The Writestream with Daria Anne. Write. Publish. Succeed. And soon, Kris Kees will be hosting a weekly money/finance program, Kees to Invest. I’ll post more details as we get closer to his debut.

Thank you to all of our exceptional hosts and listeners. We appreciate you and look forward to many more years of top-notch broadcasting!



Happy Thanksgiving from Writestream Publishing and Writestream Radio

Happy Thanksgiving from Writestream Publishing and Writestream Radio!

Wow, are we really at the end of 2016 already? It’s been a great year of growth personally and professionally, between my participation in Tasha Chen’s Science of Getting Rich Academy and my work as co-owner of Writestream Publishing and Writestream Radio.

Learning to be and live in the Certain Way has been a blessing. If you haven’t read The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles or watched any of the videos on Tasha Chen’s You Tube Channel, I highly recommend both.  Among many other gifts, this course, along with Tasha’s outstanding one-on-one coaching, has led me to develop important, mutually beneficial business relationships.

Being a believer in “relationship marketing”, Wattles’ concept of being “a creative center, through which increase is given to all” resonates well with me. My favorite way to attract new clients and projects is through engagement with talented, influential people of integrity. I’m thankful that this past year has been successful in that regard. I love being part of Tasha’s community as well as the one we’ve created via our efforts on behalf of Writestream Publishing and Writestream Radio.

I’m also thankful to Radnor Studio 21 host John Ricciutti for his unwavering support. He interviewed Lisa and me back in 2015 when we were just getting started, then invited us back twice in 2016. He’s an excellent interviewer who asks relevant questions and allows his guests to complete their answers — which makes his show informative and entertaining.

As noted in my blog post at Writestream Publishing:

createyourlife_logo1_white-2In 2016, we released the following books.

Additionally, we will be releasing The Mentor In Me by William Todd in the coming weeks. With a Foreword and handwritten notes by Bob Proctor, it is sure to be a mega success and inspire millions of readers around the world!

Two other books, Driven Soul and Mind Your Chatter: Mind Tools to Survive and Thrive in an Unpredictable World are set for release in early 2017, along with two compelling fictional novels.

It’s definitely a dance, maintaining the right balance between working in your business and working on your business, but one I wouldn’t trade for anything. I’m grateful to my family, friends, clients, colleagues, and biz partner Lisa for their trust and confidence in my abilities and look forward to even bigger and better achievements in 2016.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!




Just Believe with Ilene Gottlieb ~ The Heart Healer

As I posted on Writestream, Ilene Gottlieb ~ The Heart Healer is now the new host of Just Believe, which broadcasts every Sunday at 7 PM Eastern:

Ilene Gottlieb ∼ The Heart Healer is Your Guide To Conscious Heart Connection.  From the moment she consciously awakened to her soul connection, it has been Ilene’s passion to guide and support others in remembering that we are all here in these bodies for one soul purpose – to learn how to be consciously connected to our Heart of Love through the human experience.  For when we are consciously connected to our Heart of Love in who we are being in our relationship with ourselves, it is from this place that our conscious choices are made and our actions follow.   Imagine how it would feel to be in our world with all of us remembering our Heart of Love and living consciously in this way.

A Registered Nurse with over 40 years of experience in different areas of nursing including pediatrics, maternal-child health, medical-surgical and hospice, Ilene deals with client’s issues in a loving and compassionate way that is very empowering.  Her intuitive abilities and holistic approach enhance her ability to assess the individual client’s needs and support their total healing process.  One of her most valuable gifts is an ability to help others by empowering them to identify their core issues, understand them and find their way to a place of inner peace, balance and healing.

Certified as a Healing Touch Practitioner, Medical Intuitive and Quantum Practitioner, Ilene has since 1994 maintained a private practice in Vibrational Healing serving clients of all ages.  Where appropriate, she incorporates the use of aromatherapy as well as energy infused tools to facilitate healing.  She offers in addition to Healing Touch, Medical Intuitive Readings and Quantum Healing, the Raindrop Technique and Egyptian Emotional Clearing, both very empowering and therapeutic aromatherapy processes.

For individuals looking for the opportunity to access wisdom from the spiritual realms, as an accomplished, conscious channel, Ilene offers Akashic Records Readings.  These readings, which are also a healing session, empower the individual in gaining clarity on virtually any life issue thereby enhancing their personal, business and spiritual growth.  Questions from the client are answered with information that is in alignment with their soul’s purpose for being here.  From this place of clarity, the

client is then able to make powerful, conscious choices.  Ilene has been blessed to offer these readings nationally and internationally, in person and long distance, providing digital recordings of information that clients have benefitted from for years.

Ilene Gottlieb, The Heart Healer.

Ilene’s passion for teaching conscious heart connection is fully expressed through group Akashic Records Readings and the Heart of Love Wisdom Seekers Spiritual Community. For more information about this group please go to She also offers instruction for both the Raindrop Technique and Egyptian Emotional Clearing processes and facilitates the Feelings Circle, a gentle emotional clearing workshop utilizing guided imagery, several therapeutic grade essential oils and energy wellness tools to literally clear the energy patterns of toxic emotions and trauma.

As a dynamic and heart-centered speaker, Ilene is available to speak on a number of topics including but not limited to Healing Through the Heart Connection, Vibrational Healing, The Energetics of Self Care, Holistic Approaches to Health and Wellness, Stress Reduction, Meditation Techniques, The Energy of Emotions, Emotional Intelligence From An Energetic Perspective, Aromatherapy and The Power of Language.

For further information on Ilene’s unique approach to healing visit her website:

On a personal note, I met Ilene several months ago when I signed up with the Science of Getting Rich Academy, owned and managed by two fabulous women, Tasha Chen and Diane Shiels Bettencourt. Based on the book by Wallace D. Wattles, this ongoing spiritual and personal development curriculum has been an incredible blessing in my life. In another post, I’ll share more details about it, but through my involvement in the course, I became friends with Ilene, with whom I have gone through Levels I, II, and now III.

When Lisa Tarves decided to host a new kind of show in a different time slot (TBD), we simultaneously and immediately thought of Ilene as we brainstormed a replacement. Since Just Believe is our most popular show on Writestream Radio Network, we wanted a talented, competent, and reliable spiritual professional to take over. Fortunately, Ilene graciously accepted the invitation to host every Sunday (with me acting as her producer), and made her debut on Sunday, July 3. I’m having a blast playing “Roz” to Ilene’s “Frasier.”
