Christmas Ideas For People In Need Of Healing -'You Can Self Heal' By Brain Injury Survivor Anthony Wright Now Available

Anthony Wright inspires recovery. His story clearly demonstrates that people can self heal. Wright's dramatic story of willpower, determination and courage offers proof that anyone can self heal

Anthony Wright's story serves as inspiration to people who face healing challenges. Wright suffered through nine operations for his brain tumors and related problems. Anthony died during one operation. Though his life was saved, he lost hearing, balance and facial nerves. He lapsed into a coma, losing more than 25Kgs body weight in the following weeks and then unable to walk.

Upon returning home he was very weak and suffered with typical brain injury symptoms - fatigue and confusion with dyslexia plus memory loss. Tony wanted his life back and developed his own self recovery plan. This was a mind and body approach which proved very successful. His book You Can Self Heal is a combination of five years in Recovery; outlining all the steps to take, it is about empowerment to get well.

"Nothing would be a better holiday gift than the gift of healing," Wright stated. "At the very least, this story can serve as inspiration for those who are ready to make a fresh start and wish to set a course for self-healing for the coming year."

Tony has since formed “Recovery”, a business that provides inspiration and guidance for all those seeking to recover from major medical traumas. The concept is “You Can Self-Heal”. He also offers services to charities such as public speaking, fundraising or training to support the recovery message.

"It seems we can actively promote the neuroplasticity in our own brains," Wright concluded. "My speed of speech is now fully a third faster than five years ago, I conduct public training courses and of course I am an author. It is my belief that anyone can self heal."

Anthony Wright is available for media interviews and can be reached using the information below or by email at 'You Can Self Heal" is available at Amazon. Wright's interview can be heard at The Authors Show site at More information is available at Wright's website at

About Anthony Wright:

Anthony Wright inspires recovery. As the result of a brain tumor, he died once, was brain damaged, nearly blinded, crippled and his face collapsed. He lost 75% of his hearing, his job, his career, his identity and his future. Today he can run two miles or walk ten. He lifts weights and plays golf (better than before, he claims). He is now a speaker, a self recovery trainer and an author of the book on self recovery.

Stress, Anxiety, Fear And Depression: Author Michael Cupo Offers Steps To Instant Transformation In 'It's Monday Only In Your Mind: You Are Not Your Thoughts'

Self improvement books normally limit their approach to overcome specific problems. Michael's work moves the bar up and declares that not some, but all negative states can be overcome using a single approach

Author Michael Cupo has announced the release of 'It's Monday Only In Your Mind: You Are Not Your Thoughts'. The new self-improvement book takes a different approach than most other books in the self-improvement genre. While most books take a constricted view, carefully limited to solving very specific problems one at a time, Michael instead takes an all-encompassing approach.

What do stress, anxiety, fear, addiction and depression have in common? They are all unwanted mental states. And every one of those unwanted states is caused by an underlying conditioned thought pattern. Therefore, if one could simply not be controlled by their thoughts, it would be impossible for these unwanted states to occur. Is it that simple? Michael knows through his experience that this is so. He is in good company, as teachers such as the Buddha stated very much the same. Michael states, "The only way one's life will ever change is when the conditioning that makes it so changes."

Michael's answer is a set of simple and easy to accomplish steps that allow us to overcome these conditioned minds patterns (as he calls them throughout his book) of thoughts that lead to these unwanted states. The result is nothing short of instant transformation. He details his message and his methods in 'It's Monday Only In Your Mind'.

Michael Cupo is not a researcher or psychologist. He is instead a man who has been there. He drank, gambled, abused drugs and bounced from relationship to relationship. Even after he overcame his addictions in 1987, those troubles stopped, but his self-centered behavior never changed. Instead he substituted one compulsion for another. Although his addictions became more respectable — taking the form of material possessions — he was still trapped, migrating restlessly from one obsession to another. Then his life changed — instantly, not magically, but profoundly.

"I discovered that I wasn’t truly dependent upon a substance or activity," Michael stated, "My need to reach outside myself for fulfillment was created by a false perception of deficiency. If this sense of lack didn’t exist in me, there wouldn’t have been a need to reach and grasp. In this book I explain what caused this. I’ve learned as human beings we are really in conflict with ourselves, and we don’t understand where these conflicts originate from. I discovered it is our own mind, which has been conditioned to constantly think about our self that makes us look for our answers out there somewhere. This is the root cause of our conflicts. It’s a mind that is leading us around like we’re puppets on a string. I have found through self investigation a practical gateway to freedom that anyone can learn."

"My book describes a step by step process on how to do this. This is not a magical solution, but is instead practical. If we ever want to be truly free, we will have to realize that we are going to have to let go of the limited world we have devised in our heads. We should learn to let go now, while there is still time to really enjoy life. Even though it seems as though we don't have a choice to do this, we really can make that choice now."

Michael Cupo is available for speaking engagements and media interviews. He can be reached via email at or by using  the information below. 'It's Monday Only In Your Mind: You Are Not Your Thoughts' is available on his website, Amazon and Barnes & Noble. in both e book formats for Kindle and The Nook. More information is available on Michael's website at

About Michael Cupo:

Although he had a very good upbringing as a child, he always seemed to struggle with life and for reasons unbeknownst to him, he was always in trouble. He drank alcoholically, gambled, abused drugs, and painkillers. He bounced from relationship to relationship. Until one day that all changed

The transformation is shared in It’s Monday Only in Your Mind: You are Not Your Thoughts. His credentials for writing this book are that he lives this change each day. His view of life is so different from the way it use to be. Through the practice outlined in his book he has learned to allow his mind to quiet enough which has allowed his heart to open.  The quieter the mind becomes the more love becomes the default setting of ones life. This is truly a modern-day miracle, a miracle that can happen to anyone who has the desire to do what is necessary to allow this ''instant transformation" to occur.

There are also hundreds of articles written by Michael featured in a Wordpress blog, LinkedN, Twitter, and in a Facebook group titled after his book that addresses a wide range of issues that deal with real life everyday situations. Michael writes and posts a new article daily.

Children's Book Author A. J. Cosmo's Goal Is To Help Kids Create Success In Life Through Early Reading Skill Development

A. J. Cosmo's mission is improve the quality of life for kids and adults by teaching important lessons through silly stories that engage children in powerful ways, thus laying the foundation for future success in life 

A recent article on entitled "Everyday reading early in life is a priceless investment in a child's future" laid out some startling statistics regarding how important reading skills are in regards to adding value to the lives of future adults. The article referenced a study by from the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine that found that low literacy skills are associated with poor physical and mental health in adults. The article also referenced a survey from the U.S. Department of Education showing that 14 percent of American adults cannot read and 21 percent of American adults read below the fifth grade reading level. Sadly, 19 percent of high school graduates cannot read.

Why is this so important and so urgent? According to information presented on the One World Literacy Foundation website:

85 percent of all juveniles who interface with the juvenile court system are functionally illiterate, more than 60 percent of all prison inmates are functionally illiterate and over 70% of inmates in America's prisons cannot read above a fourth grade level.

A primary focus of A. J. Cosmo's mission is to encourage this early skill development though silly stories in the form of children's books that engage children. The kid's stories are carefully crafted to help parents teach their children simple everyday lessons in an easy to understand manner. By artfully marrying beautiful illustrations and language, children are challenged to explore his magical worlds. Written for the transitional reader, A.J.'s stories allow children to develop and master a new level of reading.

"It doesn't have to be Shakespeare. Any literature is good reading. Any critical thinking is good thought."

A.J. is the author & illustrator of over forty children's books for the Amazon Kindle including the best selling "The Monster That Ate My Socks" which spent almost two years at the top of the Monster category and in the top 500 books overall. While much of his work is centered around the concept of monsters, A. J. manages to create characters that are funny, unique and wildly engaging.

"Literacy has always created a social class divide. If you want the best for your child, and yourself for that matter, find something, anything, that sparks a love for reading."

Author Linda Maria Frank Chosen As Finalist In '50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading'

Frank was chosen as the result of a public voting process.  Her work, entitled ‘Secrets In The Fairy Chimneys’, is a mystery thriller for young readers that has received rave reviews from readers

Linda Maria Frank, author of ‘Secrets Of The Fairy Chimneys’, has been chosen as a finalist in the ’50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading’ Awards contest. The contest is sponsored by The Authors Show.

‘Secrets In The Fairy Chimneys’, written in the tradition of Nancy Drew mysteries, is written in a ‘Nancy Drew meets CSI’ style. The new young adult thriller puts Annie Tillery on a dangerous path in an attempt to unravel a complicated mystery and solve the secrets in the fairy chimneys.

"I love the Authors Show," Frank stated. "What a splendid opportunity the show offers to showcase your books in an attractive way, including an in-depth interview. On top of that is the '50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading' contest, which enables authors to share with others what writing means to them. Books contain every conceivable idea and story written and told by the authors who provide these gifts to their readers. It is this relationship between authors and readers that keeps the stories of our common awareness alive."

'Secrets In The Fairy Chimneys' is set in exotic Istanbul and Cappadocia, a land of enchanted caves and rock formations. The plot involves ancient mysteries, archaeological secrets, and thieves who will commit murder rather than give up the treasures they steal. Annie acquires new friends. Cedric Zeeks is trying to find a link between his African ancestors and the inhabitants of a 9,000 year old town in Cappadocia.  Yelda and Ahmet Atsut, twins with a Ouija board and awesome sleuthing talents, help Annie and boyfriend, Ty Egan, solve the mysteries, both the ancient ones and the ones that threaten them as they work the archaeological dig.  This third Annie Tillery Mystery is a real page turner with mystery, romance and an intriguing plot.

The book has a perfect 5 star rating on Amazon. One reviewer stated, "Terrific read. Although I'm not a typical YA reader (a bit too old) I thoroughly enjoy this series. Young Annie Tillery is a character that the reader can engage as she soldiers on with her adventure in the face of some ominous threats. Her relationship with her boyfriend, and archeological dig partner is touching. The scene descriptions of the archeological site in Turkey are well done and enlightening. The author not only knows how to tell a compelling story but she adds some interesting scientific information. I have heard of mitochondrial DNA, but never knew its significance until I read this book.”
