Janet Smith Warfield, Author Of Shift: Change Your Words, Change Your World, Will Be Appearing On Authors Web TV Through November, 2010

Janet Smith Warfield proposes that we can change the world in which we live through changing the words we use. She believes that through learning to do this we can develop strength, self confidence, peace, serenity and awareness. Shift took First Place in the New Age non-fiction category in the 2008 Next Generation Indie Book Awards

Seldom do we get the opportunity to meet, let alone interact with a person who has had a mystical experience. In Janet Smith Warfield's book, Shift: Change Your Words, Change Your World, we are offered a rare glimpse into the mind of an individual who has had such an experience. She invites us, through the words and the tools she uses, to interact with her, follow her into a transformed world and together create a world we’ve only before dreamed of.

Ms. Warfield’s mystical experience occurred unexpectedly as a young wife and mother. Her book Shift is aptly titled. Suddenly, just like seeing the other side of an optical illusion, her perception, words and emotions shifted. The shift changed her life forever.

Since the beginning of our recorded history, our greatest teachers have taught that when our external world becomes chaotic, turning inward brings serenity. Searching our own minds and hearts ultimately brings us peace.

“Most people,” stated Ms. Warfield, “have never looked at their own thoughts, feelings or words. Yet that’s where the answers lie. Shift: Change Your Words, Change Your World, can help.”“Shift,” Warfield continued, “offers simple and unusual word tools to stimulate our thinking. As we manage these tools using our own awareness and choice, we’ll notice our competence, clarity, strength, self-sufficiency, courage, and serenity increasing. We’ll watch our self-esteem growing as we take our power back.”

Today many of us have lost jobs, our homes, our life savings and even fathers or brothers in war. Shift teaches us how to refocus our energies. It teaches us how to release our pain, move on with our lives and channel our energy into caring for ourselves, those we love, and the things that really matter. To accomplish this, Shift teaches simple word and focus changes which provide immediate relief from fear and provide support for taking the next step.

“If we explode in rage, then retreat in guilt,” stated Ms. Warfield “Shift helps us channel that rage to clarify our values, indirectly change the people and situations we hate by directly changing ourselves, and make a positive difference in the world. If we are disgusted by other people’s ethics, words and actions, Shift shows us how to change others by changing ourselves. It helps us develop more satisfying relationships. If we are searching for meaning, Shift offers tools that help us clarify our mission and purpose on this planet.”

Ms. Warfield will be appearing on Authors Web TV through November, 2010. She is available for interview and can be contacted using the information below or by email at More information is available at her website.

Author Richard Palombi To Appear On The Authors Show Radio And Release His Second Book, The Geronimo Corndogs

Author Richard Palombi will appear on The Authors Show Radio on December 18, 2009. In his newest release, The Geronimo Corndogs, Palombi offers a hilarious look at three friends who meet John Dilliinger and find themselves on the wrong side of the law

Author Richard Palombi has released his new book, The Geronimo Corndogs, a hilarious look at the adventures of three friends who fall in with John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson, Pretty Boy Floyd and Billie Frechette. The book serves as a follow up to his first novel, Open The Door Richard.

The Geronimo Corndogs turns the world of gangsters and criminal icons on its head. When the fourth member of their bowling team turns out to be gangster John Dillinger, three lifelong friends find themselves on the wrong side of the law. Dubbed The Geronimo Corndogs by the press, each is assigned a mentor-in-crime from Dillinger’s gang: John Luther becomes the reluctant ward of Babyface Nelson and his over-protective wife, Helen Gillis. Reynaldo’s tutor, Pretty Boy Floyd, is forever getting the two of them lost on one ill-advised shortcut or another while reminiscing about growing up in the Cookson Hills, “the paste capital of the world.” Demoted to dog care duties for Dillinger’s gun moll, Billie Frechette, the bumbling Augustus soon finds himself reviled as a pet felon and the subject of a nationwide manhunt. Having Melvin Purvis and the F.B.I. hot on their trail was bad enough, but when PETSA and its legions of animal rights activists join in the hunt, the chase is on for real.

Mr Palombi was recently interviewed on The Authors Show Radio program. The program will run on December 18, 2009. In this interview he discusses his comedic writing style. He also talks about his past life as a joke and monologue writer, his street ministry for at-risk teens in Houston, Texas and his involvement in prison ministries. The interview centers around both of his recently released books. The show can be heard at

The Geronimo Corndogs and Open The Door, Richard are available at the Stonegarden Publishing website at,, Barnes & and at most large Internet book retailers. Richard Palombi can be reached by email at A third book, Big Son and Little Son, is due for release in 2010.

Holiday Stress And Anxiety - Mary Lore of Managing Thought Suggests Changing Thinking Patterns Can Reduce Stress and Bring Peace of Mind

Mary Lore, CEO of Managing Thought LLC and author of Managing Thought: How Do Your Thoughts Rule Your World?, proposes that stress reduction and peace of mind is achieved through learning to manage thought.

With holiday plays and parties to attend, cards to mail, gifts to buy, baking to do, guests to prepare for, and a slashed budget to boot, we may find ourselves tied up in ribbons. Yet “focusing on the essence of what you want is one of the most powerful ways of thinking to reduce stress and bring about peace and happiness during the holidays,” states Mary Lore, author of the multiple award-winning book and audio book, Managing Thought: How Do Your Thoughts Rule Your World?

"During these stressful times," Lore states, "we may find ourselves consumed with thoughts of worry, self-criticism, frustration, and even anger. Thinking about the essence of what we want, on the other hand, raises us to a new level of consciousness, gives us the ability to discover what truly matters to us, receive ideas on what to do next, and experience peace and happiness."

Lore, also an internationally recognized executive mentor, public speaker, and founder of Managing Thought, LLC – suggests the following practices to discover the essence of what you want.

1. Stop thinking, “I have to,” “I need to” or “I should” thoughts. As soon as you catch yourself thinking one of these judgmental – and exhausting – thoughts, restate your thoughts using the words, “I choose,” “I am committed to,” “It would be great if” or “I wonder how I can” and notice what happens.

These powerful thoughts help us relax, discover what we really want and open us to the many ideas on how to achieve it.

2. List everything you think you want to accomplish during the holidays, and ask yourself, “What does this bring me?” for each item. Keep asking and answering the question “What does this bring me?” until you get to the essence of what you want. If the essence of what we want brings us peace or inspires us, we open ourselves to the myriad of possibilities on how to fulfill what we truly want. If the essence does not bring us peace, then we can cross the item off our list or choose another way to think about it.

3. Take a deep breath focusing on the exhale and think “I wonder what truly matters in this moment?” Reinvoking the state of wonder is a sure-fire way to reduce stress, spark creativity, and keep us fully present and focused on what really brings us peace and joy.

Lore conducts workshops across North America as founder and president of Managing Thought, LLC, which helps individuals and organizations develop self-awareness and change how they think to attain long-lasting success.

Mary’s book has won six best book awards in various business, leadership and personal development categories. The most recent Nautilus Awards for Conscious Business and Leadership and Audio Books that Enlighten and Inspire place Mary with previous winners including Deepak Chopra, M.D., Eckhart Tolle, and His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

Published by Ferne Press, Managing Thought: How Do Your Thoughts Rule Your World? hardcover, Kindle, and audio book are available through online retailers including Amazon, Borders and Barnes & Noble and through the Managing Thought website. A downloadable digital version of the audio book with bonus material is also available at the Managing Thought website.

Stress reduction and many other pertinent topics are also covered in the company's Forward Thinking TM Gentle Reminder E-Columns.
