    Getting to Know Authors Chanta Rand, Lena Hart, and Valerie Twombly

    in Books

    Shades of Desire - Ten titillating tales from USA Today, bestselling and award-winning authors. Step into the world of some of the freshest voices in romance. From spicy secrets to sweet second chances. Come find your perfect shade of desire.


    Award winning and best selling author Valerie Twombly grew up watching Dark Shadows over her mother’s shoulder, and from there her love of the fanged creatures blossomed. Today, Valerie has decided to take her darker, sensual side and put it to paper. When she is not busy creating a world full of steamy, hot men and strong, seductive women, she juggles her time between a full-time job, hubby and her two German shepherd dogs, in Northern IL. Valerie is a member of Romance Writers of America and Fantasy, Futuristic and Paranormal Romance Writers.


    Lena Hart is a Florida native currently living in the Harlem edge of New York City. She is an active member of the Romance Writers of America organization, including the NYC and CIMRWA special interest chapter. Though Lena enjoys reading a variety of romance genres, she mainly writes sensual interracial romances with a flare of suspense and mystery.


    Chanta Jefferson Rand is an Emma Award winning Debut Author of the Year, a multi-published, best-selling author of sizzling-hot romance, and the former host of The Chanta Rand Show. An avid reader of all genres, she stepped onto the scene in 2010 with her first published historical romance, Pharaoh's Desire. Soon after, she joined Romance Writers of America.

    Bored With Your Mate? Bring Romance Back Into Your Marriage

    in Women

    Sometimes we get so "religious" that our relationships become little more than a ritual. We forget how to "woo" that special person in our lives that we married, and settle into the routine of work, home, children, cleaning, paying bills. At home, we don't dress up around each other, we don't wear cologne or perfume, we don't comb our hair, we don't shave. We just figure our spouse will love us anyway, just as we are. We may not even make an effort to put that sweet tone in our voice when we speak. After a while, the marriage becomes boring. Although our morals may keep us from looking outside our marriage for excitement, we feel like something is missing. Well, it is. We forgot to keep the romance in our marriage. Today's guest, relationship counselor Bilal Stroud, helps us remember how to rekindle that fire that may be slowly going out, so that we can once again enjoy that special person in your life.

    The Romance Bookmark with Renee Bernard presents: Suzan Tisdale

    in Books

    Love, laughter and books always have a place at The Romance Bookmark and this week, I'm happy to say, I have a comfy chair ready for none other than Suzan Tisdale, self-proclaimed Storyteller, Author and Cheeky Wench.  www.suzantisdale.com  And I'm not too humble to admit that she had me at Cheeky...but the Wench thing pretty much sealed her fate as my new favorite and top of the TBR pile!  I'm not sure why Scottish romances are just curling my happy toes these days... (It could be the kilts but I keep telling myself that it has to to do with the lovely scenery and my admiration for cultural frugality and self-reliance.  I'm a terrible liar.)  Come pull up a chair of your own and meet Suzan Tisdale! And then get ready to hit that "Buy" button, dear friends, because you'll want to load up on her wonderful series...

    Acclaimed Travel Writer, Pico Iyer on The Art of Stillness

    in Self Help

    Sister Jenna welcomes travel writer Pico Iyer on the America Meditating Radio Show!  Why might a lifelong traveler like Pico Iyer who has journeyed from Easter Island to Ethiopia, Cuba to Kathmandu, think that sitting quietly in a room might be the ultimate adventure? Because in our madly accelerating world, our lives are crowded, chaotic and noisy. There’s never been a greater need to slow down, tune out and give ourselves permission to be still.


    Pico Iyer was born in England, to parents from India, and was educated at Eton, Oxford and Harvard. He began his career documenting a neglected aspect of travel -- the sometimes surreal disconnect between local tradition and imported global pop culture. He has written 12 books, exploring also the cultural consequences of isolation, whether writing about the exiled spiritual leaders of Tibet or the embargoed society of Cuba.


    Pico’s latest focus is on another overlooked aspect of travel: how can it help us regain our sense of stillness and focus in a world where our devices and digital networks increasing distract us? He is a contributor to many magazines, writer of screenplays and liner-notes and introductions to 40 other books. His newest book is, "The Art of Stillness."  Visit http://picoiyerjourneys.com and watch Ted Talk on the Art of Stillness.

    Bill Martinez Live-We love America

    in Politics

    Bill Martinez Live-Great guests-Politically incorrect thinking-WE LOVE AMERICA


    Welcome to Bill Martinez Live, hosted by an unapologetic AMERICAN U.S. Marine of Mexican descent who knows why people come to America but demands that immigrants come through the front door and that the rule of law be respected. Bill Martinez Live waves just one flag and has no use for hyphenated hearts torn between the Stars and Stripes and some other foreign banner.  We put the United States over party politics and broadcast our unstinting praise of this great land to 250 American cities through CRN, BML syndication and the ever popular Blog Talk Radio platform.


    Republicans & Democrats have lost a grasp on life, liberty and pursuit of happiness for America. Bill Martinez Live helps us regain it. Listen in to the show to hear every facet of the issues but keep your eye on God and the exceptionalism to which he has urged on America and its people. Our nation is at a crossroads but remember your solemn birthright fellow Americans as "We the People".  Our regular guests include former New York Lt. Governor Betsy McCaughey; Steve Evans the Movie Guy; Samantha  Mills who features spectacularly touching stories from the internet; Kevin "Coach" Collins-a NY City retired Honor Legion cop with a doctorate in Public Administration and a post doctoral degree is BS detection and Jen Horn on cultural happenings!  Would YOU like to be a rapid fire guest? Contact my producer Bill McIntosh at 305-396-2806 and leave a message if he doesnt pick up or email a 30 word intro of yourself and send us your land and cell phone numbers (if you have both) to: ocasomedia@gmail.com
