No book on the market remembers love the way Carol Denise Mitchell writes about it via Tiffany, the main character! Lauded for her keen ability to bring characters to life, what makes Noah True Love Never Dies so captivating is the writer's incredible ability to write out of the box. There is no status quo for an author who has a story to tell. Tiffany Mitchell is invisible inside a family where she is one of sixteen children. Outside of the home from kindergarten to senior high school, she seeks attention by falling in fantastical love with boys who seemingly don't notice she's there. It's a hard life when in an assembly, the narrator asks virgins at Blake High School to stand up. Tiffany views herself as a loser when she is one of the only girls to attest that she does not have a boyfriend, "nobody wants me," she announces. This coming of age story will have you howling over the first kiss. How responsible is a drama teacher when she leaves hormone popping teens in the back of an old station wagon, while she leaves the car to gather materials for a school play. Tiffany travels an interesting road to find love. From elementary school to high school and onward, she experiences setbacks that many of us can truly identify with. And then, one night before she marries Piper, there he is. Noah becomes the true love of Tiffany's life. At last she sees love, feels love, and knows instantly, that Noah Crawford, a handsome bartender will undoubtedly be the uncontested love of her life.

What readers are saying about Noah True Love Never Dies,

Mitchell is a storyteller that uses her personal experience upon which to build her novels. I suppose the story would fit into Urban Fiction…but it is more a biography of a woman searching for love, including in the wrong places. It reads very much like a diary that she has kept since grade school and the content matures along with her as she becomes older. It is intimate, revealing and yet a story that fills you with the possibilities… With a totally satisfactory ending! Teens through adults will enjoy Tiffany and Noah's story… Check it out!


It is an American love story that craftily weaves a young girl journeys in loves as she becomes a woman.
The humorous, provocative, and biting reality of how women experience and express love fill the pages. In several places it caused me to reflect on the relationships I have had in the past. It was truly sobering.

Have fun and enjoy the emotional roller coaster Tiffany goes through to discover what love is all about. Reading this book was like reading a juicy diary. The characters each leave a lasting impression.

-Clarence Coggins

Carol Denise Mitchell is a fabulous story teller. Her remarkable, unique writing style drew me in from the very first chapter. I was fully engaged and turned the pages quickly to find out what could possibly happen next. The astounding, and complex, storyline and plot is concise, deep and oh so interesting. The character development is impressive and notable. They are memorable and well developed with interesting personalities and dispositions. Tiffany is a character that readers will connect with and relate to. I was completely absorbed in her story and couldn’t put the book down. This story is a lesson in life and love. It’s about finding that one true love that you’ll never forget and always long for. The language and descriptive writing is vivid and visually satisfying. The ending is fantastic and I was very satisfied. I highly recommend Noah: True Love Never Dies by Carol Denise Mitchell to all passionate romance

Bonnie Dysinger of Gentle Touch Healing to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

BENICIA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 23, 2019 / — Turning to medications and pills to alleviate chronic pain and illness has known risks and side effects that can have devastating consequences. Since everything in existence is made up of energy it’s no wonder natural healing is so effective helping millions of people find relief. One exceptional woman is helping facilitate the balance needed to return people to a healthy state physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually through her dedicated, remarkable work.

Bonnie Dysinger is an exceptional healing facilitator specializing in Esoteric Healing and founder of Gentle Touch Healing.

“In my practice I help my clients acquire their mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual restorative health and healing according to the will of the client’s soul,” says Bonnie. “Through my study and practice of Esoteric Healing I learned about our chakras and energy bodies and their purpose. Esoteric Healing is a science and it’s reproducible; so, I teach people the philosophy and practical application of Esoteric Healing, and they too can balance the energy body. In healing ourselves we heal everyone around us.”

It was through Bonnie’s own personal struggles that she discovered the wonder of Esoteric Healing. When she began soul searching it led her to dabble in various natural healing modalities. She became a Reiki Master and a hypnotherapist. But it was Esoteric Healing that resonated with Bonnie most and where she learned about herself and how if our energy bodies are not balanced and flowing it affects our emotions, thoughts, physical body, and our known or unknown spiritual aspirations.

“I started understanding how our soul brings us tribulations,” says Bonnie. “But once we commit to move through these obstacles then we are supported by our angels, spiritual guides and masters, and our own soul.”

According to Bonnie everything around us is conveyed through our energy body. This affects how we react with our emotions, relate to others, and our thought patterns. When we are stuck in fear or unable to move forward in life, we are lacking a flow of energy somewhere in our energy body.

“Life is a series of lessons we are supposed to learn from while we live on this earth,” says Bonnie. “When we experience challenge after challenge, our soul is actually working hard to help us progress spiritually. And if we’re not learning from the lesson, then we get to repeat it.”

To live in a more peaceful state, change your perception of what goes on around you. Send light and love and prayers to those situations and know you are helping to raise the vibration of the whole world.

“Change starts within ourselves and balancing our energy allows us to let go of negativity that is stuck in our energy body,” says Bonnie. “We can absolutely move forward when we balance our energy. When your soul light permeates your energy unobstructed, you start growing into who it is you are supposed to be, and that is this being of love and light.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Bonnie Dysinger in an interview with Jim Masters on Friday January 25th at 1 p.m. EST.

How to Create Great Content with Kala McCrayer

Kala McCrayer

Content is king and always will be. Discover how to create compelling, shareable content with Kala McCrayer.

FAYETTEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, January 23, 2019 / — Blogging is a multifaceted discipline, and when it comes to creating a compelling blog that is going to attract visitors from all walks of life, it’s important to be well versed in every single one of those endeavors. Web design, photography, understanding how color schemes work – all of these are important considerations that each add something to the overall finished product of a blog. But according to Kala McCrayer, a blogging expert with a number of successful blogs under her belt, perhaps the number one most important facet is content. With that in mind, and with Kala’s help, we’re going to look at a number of different ways to create great content.

Ensure your content is original

“The main point of blogging is to help ensure that your blog ranks higher on Google’s rankings.” Kala McCrayer says. “And for that reason it’s imperative that your content is original.” Any content that is plagiarized or copied will automatically be flagged by Google’s trawlers and actually work against that content ranking. Original content is also more likely to be valuable to readers, which brings us to the next point.

Content should always add value

According to Kala McCrayer, whether it’s for comedic purposes or teaches the reader a new skill, content should always add value to whomever it reading it. This is the cornerstone of a great piece of content. It doesn’t matter if this is a step-by-step photographic instruction on how to make a meal or a comprehensive blog about tax returns, the more value a post has, the more likely it is to be shared and found by people who are looking exclusively for this type of information.

Add images and videos

Gone are the days when the everyday person had an attention span long enough to read a page of a newspaper in its entirety. Nowadays, when someone sees a solid block of text, they either keep scrolling or simply read a couple of words before getting bored and moving on. In order to remedy this, you have to add images and videos to your posts to spice up your content and keep it visually exciting. We’re visual creatures, after all, so it makes sense that readers would want to read and consume something that is visually appealing.

Marina Edwards, Producer and Director, Opens Indiegogo Campaign for New Short Film

Actress, Producer, and Director Marina Edwards

Marina Edwards and Jon Edwards have opened up their new Indiegogo campaign for “My Love in the Sky,” a short film about a war veteran's challenges.

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, January 23, 2019 / — Marina Edwards (co-writer, executive producer, director) and Jon Edwards (co-writer, executive producer) have opened up their new Indiegogo campaign for “My Love in the Sky,” a short film about a war veteran challenged by returning from Iraq to civilian life. The film is slated to be filmed in Los Angeles from February to March of 2019.

“We are motivated with all our respect to acknowledge the price our warriors have paid and continue to pay, for their service to our country,” explains Marina Edwards, “It is our desire to give back to those who served to defend the freedom in our world.”

The story follows Jake, an Army veteran of 20 years who, while on a humanitarian mission in Iraq, suffers the ultimate defeat in the loss of his copilot & best friend along with his helicopter. In doing so, he shatters his vertebrae and is sentenced to a wheelchair. Menawhile, Jake's wife Janet comes from an immigrant family who has made a lot of money through her hard work in real estate. She recognizes the meaning of love and commitment to be a military wife only when she is faced with Jake's return home. It is only through a complete recalibration as to what is important in their lives that we begin to see how this warrior family can possibly find their way back to civilian life together.

“It is our desire to give something back to those who served to defend our freedom in the form of this story,” continues Marina, “Many veterans are wounded in ways seen and unseen and our aim is to open our dialog with a human story about the power of love and lulnerability to create the healing process.” Veterans returning from war face many difficulties transitioning from military to civilian life. Studies released by the VA have revealed that every day around 20 war veterans commit suicide.

“Every day we are facing the effects of imbalance in our society. Suicide and mass shootings are just symptoms of deeper issues we contend with in our society,” states Marina, “Our goal is to join the dedicated people who spend their lives working to assist the many veterans affairs programs. Our focus is to support our veterans with communication, acknowledgement and respect as a pathway to healing.”

The production budget for the short film is $30,000, and the budget will pay for things including equipment, transportation costs, festival fees, and cast and crew expenses. Although the creative team has grown up in Los Angeles and forged many relationships within the industry, they still need a budget to make this film as professional as possible. Their hope, after funding this short film, is to possibly turn it into a feature.

“We feel obligated to acknowledge the powerful commitment our military soldiers offer with their willingness to make the ultimate sacrifice,” concludes Marina, “we want to shout out to all our active military and veterans that they are not alone and we in civilian life can do a better job to promote the crises in bringing our wounded veterans back from war.”

New Film on Censorship and the 60s Counterculture to Premiere at Santa Fe Film Festival: Barney’s Wall

“It is a symphony… an epic novel on a wall”—WALL STREET JOURNAL

“In that wall is Samuel Beckett, Henry Miller, Allen Ginsberg, Octavio Paz, Malcolm X, Jack Kerouac, Marguerite Duras, Hubert Selby, Jr., William S. Burroughs.”—NEW REPUBLIC

Racism. War. Censorship. Rage. Rebellion. The Sixties are back. Rejoin the Underground.

The darkness of the current political and cultural landscape makes our film timely and relevant.”

— Sandy Gotham Meehan, Producer/ Director

SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO, USA, January 23, 2019 / — A timely new feature documentary, BARNEY'S WALL: Portrait of a Game Changer, premieres at the Santa Fe Film Festival on February 14, 2019, at 6:00pm. The film probes the lasting political and cultural impact of BARNEY ROSSET, radical Grove Press publisher, free-speech warrior and political activist, one of the most influential cultural impresarios of the last half of the 20th century. Rosset’s fierce mid-century battles against literary censorship, government surveillance, racial bigotry and the Vietnam war blasted open America’s conservative culture and birthed the 60s counter-culture rebellion, paving the way to today’s unfettered artistic expression.

In an era that is facing social and political upheavals similar to the 50s and 60s, the film is meant to underline the fragility of our First Amendment rights and civil liberties.

The film makes the case that Rosset’s unflagging battles against inequality and an intolerant culture make him a contemporary model for today’s political and cultural activists who seek to keep the country open and the First Amendment intact. Perhaps the closest equivalent today of Rosset’s feisty, abrasive, principled and visionary politics is Bernie Sanders. 

Through vast archival footage and incisive commentary from major cultural figures, the film traces Rosset’s lifetime battle to allow all Americans to read, hear and see what the Constitution demands.

An impetuous and fiercely independent outsider, Rosset’s almost mystical belief in the sacredness of the First Amendment fueled his six years of ferocious court battles against mid-century Congressional ‘obscenity’ laws, now largely forgotten, before winning a landmark Supreme Court decision outlawing government censorship. Freed to publish without restraint, Rosset brought the reading public the ‘outliers’ of the era— previously banned authors including D.H. Lawrence, Henry Miller and William S. Burroughs and the now canonical Samuel Beckett, Harold Pinter, Jean Genet, Jack Kerouac, among myriad others. 

Rosset’s commitment to civil rights drove him to publish Malcolm X, Che Guevara, Ho Chi Minh and Frantz Fanon, and to produce the film “Strange Victory”, which equated America’s Jim Crow south with European fascism.

Rosset left behind a wall of his memories, encapsulated in intricate vignettes embedded into a 15’ x 22’ wall of his East Village loft. The film uses the vignettes as portals into the formative influences that drove a rebel, war photographer, filmmaker and publisher to an enduring defense of freedom of expression. The loft and the wall have been destroyed by real estate developers undertaking the gentrification of the Lower East Side of NYC. The film is the only record of both.

The documentary has been privately screened at major cultural venues in New York City, San Francisco and Paris. Two successful Kickstarters helped fund production of the film.

Produced by FoxHog Productions, NYC, an independent media company that produces and invests in films and video about artists and thinkers whose provocative work alters the cultural and intellectual status quo.

Directed by Sandy Gotham Meehan and Williams Cole, cinematography by David Leitner, edited by Kasia Plazinska.
