  • Return to Peyton Place with the “The Seasons of Grace: The Unauthorized Backstory of Peyton Place”

    Dave O Dodge Author - Seasons of Grace - New Book and Dec 14, 2021 event

    Stories That No One Dared to Tell - Meet And Greet With Dave O. Dodge, Author

    SPRINGFIELD, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES, December 3, 2021 / -- “The Seasons of Grace” author Dave O. Dodge will host a free online meet and greet book discussion on Tuesday, Dec. 14, 2021 at 6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. EST. Dodge will discuss his book, “Seasons of Grace: The Unauthorized Backstory of Peyton Place” and the book “Peyton Place” by Grace Metalious. This meet and greet will allow guests to experience an authentic account of Metalious’ quest to write such a book according to Dodge’s research. Guests will also hear details of Dodge’s journey into writing about Metalious and the occurrences that followed the release of “Peyton Place.”

    Dodge’s novel follows the life of Metalious, a New Hampshire native who wrote four novels during her successful career and short life. She is best known for her first book, “Peyton Place” which became an unprecedented blockbuster when it was first published in 1956. Metalious’ book was dubbed “the first dirty book” and sold 12.5 million copies, with only The Bible selling more copies during the 1950s. The book was also on the New York Times bestseller list for over a year while at the same time it was banned in a number of libraries and countries for its controversial content.
    “Grace Metalious was a female writer who grew up in Manchester, New Hampshire, and her novels were unprecedented for someone with her background and gender during that period in American literary history,” expressed Dave O. Dodge. “I wrote “The Seasons of Grace'' to bring deserved recognition to this legendary writer who changed the game for all female writers during her era. Metalious’ brand of storytelling challenged the myths of idyllic life in rural New England.”

    The novel thoroughly peels back the curtain with this fictional story based on the life of Metalious and her desire to tell stories that no one dared to tell before that time. Her life, like her writings, was a whirlwind that created havoc and controversy with every strike of the typewriter key, with “Peyton Place” hitting on thought inducing and previously unspeakable subjects like rape, murder, incest, abortion, promiscuity, and adultery, all which Dodge weaves into a gripping story, which delves deeply throughout his book.

    At his core, Dodge hails from New England blood and was raised in Franklin, New Hampshire. Like his protagonist, Grace Metalious who made her home in nearby Gilmanton, his hometown gave him the inspiration to write his first novel about the fellow great New Englander.

    “The Seasons of Grace: The Unauthorized Backstory of Peyton Place” is currently available on Amazon and Kindle.

For his posters, he uses Adobe Photoshop brushes and typography to create them, like his "Expose Exhibition" and "Wishes" poster artwork.

    Cash Prizes!

    From 1st December 2021 hosts Daily £5 Prize Fastest Typist Competition each Tuesday night at 8pm and closing 24 hours later at 8pm Wednesday.

    We've given away over £2,000 in cash prizes to our speed typing competitors since April 2020 and we'll be adding another £2,000 in 2022”
    — Tony Rust - Managing Direct Better Skills, Better Life Ltd
    BLACKPOOL, LANCASHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM, November 30, 2021 / -- New Daily Competition starts Wednesday 1st December are the only regular cash prize speed typing competitions on the Internet and from 1st December they will run the first ever regular daily cash prize speed typing competition, every Wednesday. It’s a 15 second quick and easy to do typing challenge, and if you win, you win the Daily Fiver, a cash prize paid into your bank account or alternatively, by PayPal or Amazon voucher. The competition is free to enter and is carried out online through the competition’s multi-featured typing interface on the website.

    You could make a mistake but still win
    Each competitor can enter as many times as they want within the 24 hours of the competition and it’s the fastest and most accurate typist who wins, well, sort of. The company spokesperson explains:-“We thrive on feedback, and having now conducted over one hundred speed typing cash prize competitions of various sorts we believe that there is an appetite for a bit of quick mid-week fun at home, in school or at work with a daily cash prize speed typing competition. It’s free to enter and you’ve got the chance of a handy little cash prize.”

    “The Daily £5 Prize Fastest Typist Competition will run for just one day a week to begin with and if the demand requires it we’ll add more days each week. Like our Weekly £10 and Monthly £30 Prize speed typing competitions, there will be a league structure of Winners, Champions and Hall of Famers so that the faster typists can graduate from the daily competition to what we call Big Matches where the cash prizes are higher.”

    “The regular Weekly £10 Prize Fastest Typist and Monthly£30 Prize Fastest Typist Competitions have always had accuracy at the heart of their scoring system, with highest WPM and the highest accuracy beating the highest pure WPM score. However, this has been modified recently such that all accuracy scores over 98.5% are ranked the same for scoring purposes, so if you make the odd mis-keying, you aren’t penalised. This should take the pressure off being 100% accurate and will let the competitors concentrate on their speed a bit more.”

    The league structure for Daily Competition higher cash prizes
    Details are yet to be finalised but it is expected that the league structure will work on the basis that if a Daily Competition winner wins four competitions with any ten week period then they become a Champion after which they have to take a four week mandatory break, and then, if they win two more daily competitions within any ten week period, they will become a Hall of Famer and can no longer take part in the daily competition. This is so that no one competitor dominates the competition. However, those competitors who win through to these leagues can take part in Daily Big Match Speed Typing Competitions where competitors within each league compete against each other for higher cash prizes of £25, £50 and £75 respectively. is the biggest cash prize speed typing competition website on the Internet, hosting regular weekly and monthly cash prize fastest typist competitions and sending prize money all over the world. The higher prize money competitions are structured according to a league system of Winners Champions and Hall of Famers.

    A note about the BIG MATCHES
    • Winners Big Match – held every ten new unique Winners
    • Champions Big Match – held every ten new unique Champions
    • Famers Big Match – held every seven new unique Famers

  • Automotive Sales Training Firm Dealer eTraining Celebrates Eleven Years In Business

    Dealer eTraining

    Dealer eTraining Accountability

    Dealer eTraining Services

    Automotive Sales & Marketing training & consulting firm celebrates 11 years of serving the automotive industry offering quality solutions to car dealerships.

    I remember hiring Stan and together we fixed a broken Honda dealership in all departments.”
    — Arwin Bharaj

    NORTH BRUNSWICK TOWNSHIP, NJ, UNITED STATES, November 27, 2021 / -- They say that time flies when you are having fun. This is certainly the case for Stan Sher, the founder of Dealer eTraining. The most forward-thinking consultative selling training and consulting firm are celebrating its eleventh year in business. What started out as a small, boutique firm that was designed to help automobile dealers across the United States build and fix business development and internet sales operations has grown considerably by ten times over the past decade.

    Dealer eTraining is a top-performing automotive training and consulting firm that has always been able to take an automobile dealership to the next level. “Over the years the automobile retail industry has evolved in multiple ways from technology being built to market and sell vehicles more effectively to third party industry disruptors designed to make retailing even more competitive to the current chip shortage making inventory scarce,” says Stan Sher, the nineteen years experienced automotive executive. Dealer eTraining went from building internet and business development departments to also offering sales and management training.

    Building Dealer eTraining was no easy task as the firm was launched in a heavily competitive space with many rivals that were already changing the industry. In fact, there were two times when the firm almost closed down to focus on other opportunities that allowed Stan Sher to offer his skills and expertise in other verticals. At one point, Dealer eTraining became a side business while Stan took an opportunity to build and run a highly successful independent dealership for one year as the General Sales Manager handling General Manager duties overseeing all aspects of the dealership. The dealership went from barely selling eight units per month to over seventy units per month grossing a quarter million per month on average in sales as well as doubling service department revenue.

    Arwin Bharaj, a previous General Manager and mentor of Stan’s would become a Dealer eTraining client twice over a five-year period. He said that “I remember hiring Stan and together we fixed a broken Honda dealership in all departments''. He also added “Stan thinks and operates like an owner looking at the big picture. I hired him to fix my broken Toyota dealership’s BDC and digital operations as we were having struggles with the OEM and he got us on the right track in just seven days”.

    Stan has just published a book called “Social Sher’s The Skills That Pay The Bills” documenting his growth and the steps that it took to build a profitable career from life experiences. In addition, Dealer eTraining has expanded into the Buy Here Pay Here sector of the automotive industry. The BHPH industry has lacked sales and lead handling training for many years and it was evident that dealers are looking for help. Stan just finished a national speaking tour that included conferences such as Digital Dealer in Las Vegas, NV, and the NABD Automotive Finance and Buy Here Pay Here Dealers Expo in Orlando, FL where he educated dealers on digital marketing and business development.

    Prior to starting Dealer eTraining, Stan built his career selling automobiles and becoming one of the top automotive business development directors in the United States managing high volume Honda and Nissan dealerships. In celebration of starting a new decade in business during the month of the Thanksgiving holiday, Dealer eTraining is offering 25% off all services until the end of 2021. “I am honored that the industry has been great to me and that dealers want to learn from me and I want to give back my appreciation,” says Stan Sher.

    PlayTreks digital certificate of ownership

    PlayTreks Copyright Control Certificate

    PlayTreks Copyright Control

    easy 1,2,3 process to mint your NFT and claim ownership with PlayTreks

    Meet the growing demand for content protection in the digital world. The all-in-one app announces the release of its latest module, Copyright Control.

    PlayTreks (TREKS:TREKS)

    We secure your content and make you feel safe in the knowledge that your content is secure on the internet, and cannot be altered by anyone”
    — Luca Rushton
    HASSELT, BELGIUM, November 24, 2021 / -- PlayTreks, the ALL IN ONE app for the music industry, with powerful features such as music distribution to traditional streaming platforms and a blockchain-based marketplace, music performance analytics, and much more, officially launches its copyright control module.

    A logical next step for PlayTreks, as they recently released their blockchain-based marketplace and the launch of TREKS, the crypto token of PlayTreks.
    TREKS is a multipurpose token created to be used across the Playtreks platform for finance and utility purposes. TREKS can be used for subscriptions, earnings from royalties, copyright, fan participation, and more.

    With the Copyright Control module, PlayTreks take their All-In-One platform claim to the next level.

    As the name indicates, the Copyright Control module, which can be used stand-alone, or in the PlayTreks app, allows users to register ownership, which is stored in a blockchain smart contract. Registering original content means that copyright is retained by the creator and not assigned to a third party. The copyright is used to indicate that creation, like work/recording, is self-published. As digital media becomes the norm, blockchain technology like Playtreks's Copyright Control can help protect against unauthorized sharing and also help copyright owners audit their royalties.

    As NFTs (non-fungible tokens) are a hot topic in the music, art, and intellectual property domain at the moment, yet still somewhat confusing to the masses, it is clear that NFT's are here to stay because of the unbreakable smart contracts the ownership details are being stored in, as well as the reliance on blockchain technology, foundation of the PlayTreks Copyright Control module and its marketplace.

    The process of creating an NFT through the PlayTreks Copyright Control module is pretty straightforward, as the creator uploads their original content, which upon execution is "minted", resulting in a unique identifier. Through that unique identifier, the creator is assured the information is permanently part of the NFT. Our marketplace allows NFTs to be viewed within the user's collection, and when the creator sells or licenses their work, royalties may automatically be granted. The technology allows for easy tracking of transactions and other events.

    The PlayTreks Copyright Control module innovates the way how creators have registered their ownership to date. The traditional way of submitting content to performance rights organizations can now be handled by the creator minting their work and storing it on the blockchain. This allows the creator to make sure that their work, royalties, and income are in their hands and that no one can take these from them.

    PlayTreks’ CEO Anjo De Heus says: “We secure your content and make you feel safe in the knowledge that your content is secure on the internet, and cannot be removed by anyone”. PlayTreks insures that any creator copyrighting their content can feel safe knowing that the app’s brand new copyright mechanism on the blockchain is controlling and protecting their works.

    With the copyright control function, PlayTreks aims to avoid issues concerning copyright ownership. By embedding the information on the blockchain, clarity is given on who the owner is, or owners for that matter. Having said that, PlayTreks encourage their users to copyright their creations accordingly, meaning that anyone involved must be registered.

    PlayTreks aim to eliminate copyright infringement. What does this mean? It means that any party that has the intention of making use of a copyrighted creation, unless prior approval is given, won’t be legally allowed to do so. Any intention of use and misuse and intention of monetizing will be detected as the information is securely stored on the blockchain. According to J.D. River Braun at Legalzoom, music, image, and text are the most common forms of copyright infringement.

    Once information is stored and secured on the blockchain, PlayTreks provides the copyright owner or owners, with a digital certificate of ownership.
    This comes to prove that proper use of data can solve a lot of illegal activities. It has been known that when copyrights are infringed, they take a lot of time to resolve. Now, PlayTreks solves that issue with blockchain-based Copyright Control.

    The PlayTreks Copyright Control module is available immediately and can be found at

    To officially recognise this achievement, on 10 November 2021, the Chief Executive Officer (Muhammad Zohaib Tariq) attended an official reception Windsor Castle to meet senior members of the Royal Family. The event at Windsor Castle was hosted by His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales with other members of the Royal Family in attendance, including Princess Anne, the Princess Royal, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, the Duke of Kent and Princess Alexandra, the Honorable Lady Ogilvy.

    The reception was followed by an awards ceremony on 23 November 2021, where the LRN team met with and was awarded their certificate. The certificate is signed by both her Majesty, The Queen and Prime Minister, Boris Johnston, and was presented by the Queen’s representative, Deputy Lord-Lieutenant Nick Bracken, OBE.

    The Queen’s Award is a culmination of the hard work and dedication of the wider LRN team (includes examiners, moderators, item writers, administration staff, Governing Council members and Senior Management Team members) all over the world.

    Muhammad Zohaib Tariq, CEO of the LRN said, “The Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade is a great testament to the hard work and commitment by the LRN team – and to meet so many members of the Royal Family at the reception was a day that will stay with us all. Not only is it important to be recognised as meeting such high standards, but it is also rewarding to be acknowledged as the peers of other awardees. This award has boosted team morale throughout the pandemic, and we look forward to a continuing bright future at LRN.”

    Dr Lawrence Watson, the Chairman of LRN’s Governing Council said, “As an organisation, we’re driven by securing achievements for our staff, centres, wider stakeholders and most importantly, our students. It is wonderful when we are recognised by an award such as this. Working so hard, as we have all done through the pandemic, attending the award event was a great opportunity to meet and talk with other like-minded businesses and organisations.”

    Andrew Rosindell, Member of Parliament for Romford said, “LRN is a dynamic and enterprising business and the work that it does leaves a positive impact all over the world, with thousands of students benefiting from a wonderful education and the opportunity to grow and develop as people who can then help their own communities. I’m very proud to see that my constituency is home to such enterprise and success.”

    Councillor John Mylod, Mayor of Havering, said, “This is a great day for the London Borough of Havering – the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade is the highest business award in the UK and we are so proud that this Havering-based company has been recognised. Not only was the event itself remarkable, but it also underpins the commitment that Her Majesty The Queen has always had towards industry, commerce and enterprise. LRN’s product touches lives all over the world and the Commonwealth and it is most fitting that their dedication to education is so keenly acknowledged.”
