    North America business can now expand beyond the United States. Sprint Data Solutions Canada lifestyle consumer database is making consumer marketing a breeze.

    LAS VEGAS, NV, UNITED STATES, January 10, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide Marketing is here to help businesses ready to go international and expand business outside of the US market. There are business postal mailing lists for enterprises better equipped to go the B2B route and offer products or services to other corporations.

    However, for those companies that interact with the general public directly, consumer postal mailing lists are widely available that suit a huge range of different marketing, product, and service needs. Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide Marketing aims to break down marketing needs according to the metrics and demographics businesses are looking for.

    How Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide Marketing Got Its Start
    Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide Marketing is a 100% wholly American-owned and operated business with a disabled veteran as the founder. Having performed the patriotic duty to protect the country, the step after that was to help the country’s economy grow by aiding its businesses. There is now a staff with over 50 years of combined industry experience in marketing to help clients.

    Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide Marketing first began operations in an earlier, not-yet-digital era, when analog processes like direct mail marketing still dominated the industry. However, that early, pre-digital experience would prove crucial in conveying lessons that easily translated to results in the digital space as digital marketing finally came into its own. The early success in the physical and analog markets turned into an effective transition to digital marketing techniques that only served to solidify the growth and success of the company as new market opportunities and practices emerged.

    Today, Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide Marketing has expanded its operating range from humble beginnings, serving only its hometown of Las Vegas, Nevada. The entire United States, including Alaska and Hawaii, enjoy marketing coverage. And of course, for those businesses that are ready to grow beyond the US border, there are now services available both across the ocean, in countries like France, as well as for those that want to break into the business in other North American nations such as Mexico and, of course, Canada.

    A Similar Market
    Canada enjoys a unique relationship with the United States that almost no other country shares with its neighbors. The border between the two nations is the longest undefended border in the world due to the mutual, neighborly trust that the two countries share. However, perhaps more important from a business perspective is that the two countries share the same language, sensibility, and even cultural values despite being nations independent of each other. This makes the Canadian market viable for American businesses as their own domestic territories.

    In particular, this means that the huge lifestyle market of the United States is compatible with those across the border, and Canada lifestyle consumer marketing lists can be adapted to the needs of American businesses with little in the way of adjustment and adaptation. Language and cultural considerations may be issues with attempting to expand into other markets in other countries. This is rarely an issue in the Canadian market, except for marketing efforts targeted specifically at the French-Canadian demographic.

    Crossing Existing Bridges
    Fortunately, because Canada is a “mainland” nation on the same continent, much of the infrastructure required for business, including distribution channels, is already in place and well-established. For companies wishing to expand into Canada, especially those interested in breaking into Canada lifestyle consumer marketing arenas, there are even familiar brand names with an existing presence, such as Walmart and Amazon, that make it possible for businesses to approach a new market under a familiar face.

    Suitable For A Large Range
    As with the American market, the Canada lifestyle consumer market covers many different products and services. Everything from fitness to dieting, recreation to academics, self-improvement, to even cannabis products, due to Federal legalization of the substance, is available to tap into.

    American companies need to do what they would if they were trying to break into a new state or region of a state for expanding business and sales. Find out where the need for the product is greatest by identifying which markets want the product and where they are located. The rest follows from this essential research.

    Databases For Canadian Demographics
    Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide Marketing has Canadian lifestyle consumer marketing lists to meet the needs of a diverse range of business interests. As with the United States, the Canadian lifestyle demographic is wide-ranging, comprising different genders, age groups, ethnicities, religious affiliations, income levels, hobbies, and other interests.

    This means as it does with any effective, strategic marketing strategy, that businesses should identify which demographics resonate with or need the products offered and then target them specifically. It makes for a much higher response rate and generates greater leads for sales and further development of consumer data. Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide Marketing had the Canadian lifestyle consumer marketing lists to meet different demographic criteria. And of course, there are geographical breakdowns and contact details in any format required, from physical mailing addresses to email addresses to telephone numbers and even cellular numbers for text-based/SMS messaging.

    For those who want to create their own direct mail marketing campaign but are unsure how to start, turnkey direct mail solutions guide clients through all stages. This one-stop-shop solution takes clients through the conception phase, the design phase, the actual printing of the materials, and, of course, distribution without needing additional help or vendors.

    If you want access to Canadian consumer lifestyle marketing lists, contact Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide Marketing. It’s a fast, effective way to get the results you want for increasing your sales. When you work with us, you’re supporting an American company owned and operated by a disabled veteran.

  • The New Administrator of the Chippendales Empire

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09PBS1QTS

    Reveals The Perpetrators' Scheme

    How Chippendales Became A Household Name

    For Thirty Years, Jesse Banerjee, Rightful Heir to the Chippendales Empire, Has Watched Other People Spend His Money

    Life Begins When One Awakens To Its Beauty!”
    — Jesse Banerjee

    SANTA MONICA, CA, UNITED STATES, January 3, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Jesse Banerjee, a club promoter and the eldest son of disgraced Chippendales owner, Steve Banerjee, has written a tell-all book, Bowtie Legacy. The book will give you an honest look at Jesse’s early relationship with his father, as well as a tour through the LA underground club scene of the 90’s with Jesse as your guide. Filled with intrigue, the book will allow the reader to follow how Jesse uncovered piece by piece the diabolical scheme and the ensuing cover-up that allowed the perpetrators to take control of Chippendales without paying creditors, or giving him his rightful inheritance.

    Jesse never believed that a man like his father, who could survive the severe poverty of Mumbai to create a successful life in America, would commit suicide because he was facing a prison term. He has been working to clear his father’s name for over twenty-five years, while also attempting to get the share of his father’s estate that Irene, his ex-stepmother, swindled him out of. Reading miles of court documents, other types of transcripts, and undisclosed FBI files has helped to confirm his suspicions.

    After the death of Irene in 2001, his father’s wife, he learned that there wasn’t a will, and that his father had divorced Irene under the terms of their prenuptial agreement before his death, leaving her with only three properties and a specified sum of money. If Irene and his father were divorced and there was no will, how had she become executrix of the estate? During long hours of research, Jesse would discover that she committed fraud and forgery with the help of an FBI agent Brad, her sister Helen’s husband. Helen and Brad would control his father’s empire after Irene’s death.

    Learning that Brad was an FBI agent raised a lot of questions for Jesse. Did Brad know of his brother-in-law’s criminal investigation? and what role did Brad play in his prosecution? Any involvement by Brad in Steve Banerjee’s investigation would be collusion.

    Jesse’s research would find hidden accounts and shell corporations formed by Helen and Brad in Panama, which he believed were created to hide the millions they were receiving from the profits Chippendales made every year from any suspecting eye like creditors or his.

    During Jesse's protracted fight, the tactics of his adversaries designed to wear him out, almost did. Their strategy was airtight until a break came. Lindsay attempted to remove Helen as administrator, replacing Helen with herself. Jesse opposed his sister’s petition, while filing his own petition to become administrator.

    Lindsay’s high-priced law firm of Brown, White and Osborne with Jack Osborne himself, presenting to the court that there was only a thousand dollars in cash in the estate’s account was laughable. How could he make such a ridiculous claim when his hourly rate was upwards of three hundred dollars an hour? The judge was wise to their machination and ordered his sister’s lawyers to present documentation to prove their claim. Lindsay’s lawyers failed to present any proof of their claim while also insulting the court with a non-appearance. The judge ruled in Jesse’s favor. Finally, Judge Juarez would appoint Jesse Banerjee, the rightful heir to Chippendales, as the administrator of the Banerjee estate.

    Now Jesse has the daunting task of discovering where they hid the treasure.

    Bowtie Legacy is available on Amazon.

  • New store for local writers & readers opens in Ballarat, Victoria

    Paul Rushworth-Brown's Skulduggery goes on sale in Ballarat, Victoria

    Skulduggery goes on sale in Ballarat, Victoria

    The hype around this book has been unquestionable

    "A glorious read!"

    Nominated for Best Indie Book Award

    Nominated for Best Indie Book Award

    Shawline Publishing has opened its first Independent Bookstore for Australian authors in Ballarat, Victoria

    As a commitment to the author and books for readers, we have taken steps to assure that all our books including 'Skulduggery' by Paul Rushworth-Brown will be found in our new bookstore.””
    — Bradley Shaw

    BALLARAT, VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA, December 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- FOR Shawline Publishing Group, the challenge of getting quality books into quality outlets has been a noticeable loss for the business and authors over recent years.

    So the company has decided to do something about it by opening their first Independent Bookstore outlet in Ballarat.

    Australian booksellers are overwhelmed by the big traditional contracts for supplying products and have little budgets or spaces on shelves left to support new Australian authors, let alone to help promote their books for readers.

    “The adage of selling what is successful because it is successful will always take priority in retail businesses,” said Bradley Shaw, managing partner of Shawline Publishing.“

    "Authors on their own do not have the funds to market effectively or even ongoingly for a book to be retail valued, but we can help change this for those who dream of being published.”

    “As part of the commitment to the author and the books we produce for readers, Shawline Publishing Group has taken new steps to assure that all our books including 'Skulduggery' by Paul Rushworth-Brown will be found online and off-line by readers through our new bookstore outlets.”

    The new Independent Bookstore chain will offer authors and readers larger promotional values and book signings and launches and events for the greater success in the market.

    There are also exclusive sales returns to authors, along with guaranteeing them a clear channel of sales across the country to readers looking to discover their next favourite writer.

    “The first The Independent Bookstore was opened in Ballarat on 8 May, with an expected 25 additional outlets being opened around the country within the first 24 months of trading,” Mr Shaw said.

    “These outlets will carry all the Shawline brand of books exclusively, while still promoting the titles to other resellers around the country and globe.”

    The Independent Bookstore will be selling exclusive titles published by small press publishing agencies which most other retail stores have no room or interest in supporting.

    The Bookstore will also have a range of exclusive sustainable products to further support other independent producers who find challenges with distributing their new products to the market.

    "This is an exciting time and given the exclusivity of our books and authors quality of works, we will be able to sell more books to more people who desire truly independent books to succeed in this country and across the globe,” Mr Shaw said.

    You can find The Independent Bookstore on Facebook and the new website is coming soon at indiebookstores.com.au.

  • The Gift of Writing

    Tim Powers, David Farland, and Orson Scott Card teach the Writers of the Future Online Workshop

    Orson Scott Card teaches the Writers of the Future Online Workshop

    David Farland teaches the Writers of the Future Online Workshop

    Tim Powers teaches the Writers of the Future Online Workshop

    Give yourself the gift of writing this holiday season in L. Ron Hubbard's Writers of the Future Online Workshop.

    What this course can give you is counsel that might help you jump forward in your ability to handle the tools of the writing profession.”
    — Orson Scott Card, author of "Enders Game"
    LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, December 23, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Give yourself the gift of writing this holiday season, say David Farland (“The Runelords”), Tim Powers (“On Stranger Tides”), and Orson Scott Card (“Enders Game”). All three international bestselling authors and Writers of the Future Contest Judges are the featured guest lecturers for the L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future Online Workshop.

    Initially announced in the Summer 2020 issue of SciFi Magazine by noted editor Jeff Berkwits, who referred to the new Writers of the Future Online Writing Course as “an extension of L. Ron Hubbard’s Writers of the Future (WOTF) Contest, the world’s preeminent competition for up-and-coming genre authors.” Berkwits acknowledged the goal “to help budding speculative storytellers become future Hugo, Nebula, and WOTF award winners.”

    The writing workshop is comprised of 13 videos by Orson Scott Card, David Farland, and Tim Powers, along with 11 essays by Contest founder L. Ron Hubbard and writing assignments.

    Essays and practical assignments take a writer from research and concepts to a completed story. With a 4.7 out of 5-star rating, the course is designed for the participant to go at their own pace.

    It has been well received with nearly 6,000 aspiring writers from over 100 countries worldwide enrolled. An impressive 72% of those taking the workshop have a story completed by the end of the course, an accomplishment many have unsuccessfully aspired to in the past.

    Orson Scott Card stated, “No writing course or workshop can give you your style or your voice; you already have them. What this course can give you is counsel that might help you jump forward in your ability to handle the tools of the writing profession.” As to why this online workshop, he concluded, “Let us help you prepare to bring your own stories to life in your own voice.”

    The competition for new stories can be daunting―R. R. Bowker reported more than 1,000,000 books published in 2017, up from 300,000 in 2009, with 2/3rds being self-published. And so, the Writers of the Future Online Workshop was created to help authors take their stories to the next level and rise above the competition.

    Regarding the value of the workshop to help take stories to the next level, Tim Powers stated, “The online workshop is tremendously valuable―it saves new writers years of trial-and-effort struggle.”

    “Everyone has a story to tell,” stated David Farland, Writers of the Future Coordinating Judge. “That’s not the problem. How to tell that story in such a fashion that others will enjoy it and tell others about it is what is needed.” That is what the nearly 6,000 aspiring writers are learning with the L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future Online Workshop.

    So if you are an aspiring writer, why not give yourself the gift of writing this holiday season. Anyone can sign up for the writing workshop at Free Online Workshop.

    The Writers of the Future writing contest was initiated by L. Ron Hubbard in 1983 to provide “a means for new and budding writers to have a chance for their creative efforts to be seen and acknowledged.” Based on its success, its sister contest, Illustrators of the Future, was created five years later to provide that same opportunity for aspiring artists.

    Throughout the Contests’ 38-year history, over 500 writers have been awarded. Winners have published nearly 1,200 novels and over 6,000 short stories and have produced 33 New York Times bestsellers, with their works selling over 60 million copies.

    PlayTreks named a Key-Player in the Global Music NFT market

    PlayTreks (TREKS:TREKS)

    We believe that the HTF report shows we are on the right strategic path to serve our clients and the industry.””
    — Anjo De Heus
    HASSELT, BE-VLI, BELGIUM, December 23, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- PlayTreks, the All-In-One platform for the music industry, was named a key player in the Global Music NFT market report researched by HTF Market Intelligence


    The majority of key players are focussing on securing a leading market in the music industry, as PlayTreks is doing with its NFT marketplace, The PlayGrounds. Other key players include OpenSea, Nifty Gateway, and Rarible among a few others.


    PlayTreks, an innovative company applying artificial intelligence and blockchain technology to make artists and record labels meet the growing demand for transparency and new ways of monetizing music, today announced that it has been named a key player in the Global Music NFT market by HTF Market Intelligence.


    PlayTreks NFT PlayGrounds marketplace was recognized because of its readiness, global coverage, and completeness, and was researched based on primary and secondary research, white paper, publications, website, world bank statistics, and HTF market intelligence.


    The music industry has been inextricably linked to technology since the discovery of sound recording in 1877. Technological innovations have influenced how music is made, played, saved, distributed, and enjoyed. This is from the first discs to streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music from the birth of record changing to the rise of modern electronic sound.


    The rise of non-fungible tokens, or NFTs, is a developing trend in the music industry. NFT transactions enable audiences to bid on one-of-a-kind content from their favorite artists in auctions. These tokens, as well as the transactions that entail them, currently empower the artists who sell them. Only time will tell if NFTs are here to stay, as they are brand-new breakthroughs. An NFT (Non-Fungible Token) is a one-of-a-kind digital asset held on the blockchain.


    For record labels, publishers, and their lawyers, licensing and transferring ownership of music is now a pretty complex process, and manually clearing samples for usage or transferring rights can even postpone the release of the music. However, with efficient and secure document transfer, NFT makes licensing and transferring music as simple and quick as shopping online.


    “We are honored to be recognized by HTF Market Intelligence as a key player in the global music NFT market,” said Anjo De Heus, CEO of PlayTreks. We’re continuing to build our comprehensive platform for music management and execution to serve as the engine that drives commerce for our clients. Music Data is essential to the blockchain platform for NFTs, and that's what sets us apart. We believe that the HTF report shows we are on the right strategic path to serve our clients and the industry.”


    This is the first time that PlayTreks has been named a key player in the global music NFT market as they only went live with the All-In-One platform in April of 2021 and the market for music NFT's is relatively new.


    The power of the PlayTreks platform is its completeness with services such as music distribution to traditional streaming platforms and blockchain-based NFT marketplaces, radio airplay monitoring, music rights copyright control, and driven by lots of data so artists always have a 360-degree view on music performance.

    About PlayTreks and the PlayGrounds NFT Marketplace:

    Playtreks is an ALL-IN-ONE platform, serving artists, record labels, artist managers, composers, songwriters, and all those who wish to stay in control over their creations. With the platform, we collect and correlate metadata, and users can then analyze the data in a powerful dashboard using artificial intelligence.

    His Majesty Jigme Singye Wangchuck and his son His Majesty King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck

    His Majesty Jigme Singye Wangchuck and his son His Majesty King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck

    There are incredible public policy developments happening at all levels of governance and we want to say thank you.

    Systemic change happens through Public Policy as it can determine social happiness and well-being for long periods of time. ”
    — Luis Gallardo, Founder & President - World Happiness Foundation
    NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, December 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Both the Kings His Majesty Jigme Singye Wangchuck and his son His Majesty Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck are the inspiration for the present times and times to come. We are blessed and delighted to honor them as World Happiness Awards 2021 Laureates in Policy Making.

    Join us in our celebration of people and communities, making this planet a better place for all!

    When a young Crown Prince running at 17 years of age became the King of Bhutan in 1972, one of His Majesty Jigme Singye Wangchuck’s first and ever-lasting initiatives to bring happiness and wellbeing to his citizens was through the principles of Gross National Happiness, which he propounded was more important than Gross National Product. This concept questioned the conventional economic measurement system that GDP alone could not bring happiness and well-being to citizens.

    Although still a teenage monarch, His Majesty was wise beyond his years. He firmly believed that happiness was a valid indicator and a sign of progressive development for his country. He also believed in the legitimacy of public participation in defining Bhutan’s development goals. He brought the nation to a democracy without making the citizens realize it.

    The concept re-counts Bhutan’s ancient legal code of 1629 given by Zhabdrung whose embodiment is His Majesty Jigme Singye Wangchuck that states ‘if the government cannot create happiness for its people, then there is no purpose for that government to exist.’ The code notes that Bhutanese laws must promote happiness for all sentient beings. For the King, the focus was never just the economic progress of his country but creating a flourishing human society living in harmony with its environment.

    Today, plentiful research shows that wealth alone doesn’t contribute to happiness and life satisfaction. The Gross National Happiness index measures the quality of its development holistically, believing that the positive development of human society happens when material and spiritual growth occurs alongside each other. That is why this small Himalayan country is considered a living example of sparking the debate on human development.

    Four decades later, Bhutan, now a democratic country, still ensures the inclusion and continuity of GNH values as enshrined in its Constitution of the Kingdom of Bhutan. As a public policy, the GNH development framework is supported by four pillars:

    Sustainable and equitable socio-economic development
    Conservation of the environment
    Preservation and promotion of culture
    Good governance

    An overarching objective within these pillars is eradicating poverty without any compromise with nature.

    His Majesty made sure to teach his son, the present King His Majesty Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck, the same values so he could continue leading the country according to the most important gauging legacy – the happiness. GNH has been further enhanced and signified by the King His Majesty Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck as ‘Development with values bridging with kindness, equity, and humanity'.

    Acclaimed as ‘the people’s king,’ His Majesty Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck has already won over hearts worldwide. He is a gentle, compassionate, and kind monarch who expanded a royal welfare system that helps the rural poor.

    He started his reign with the democratization of his country. He traveled and continues to visit all parts of the country mainly on foot, talking to people from all walks of life understanding their problems, and helping them through his government to come out with measures and policies to overcome their issues. He is engaged with young people about the importance of higher standards in education, business, and servicing. He signed the abolishment of anti-homosexuality laws and launched the National Cadastral Resurvey to resolve issues of excess land. He also established the Rehabilitation Project, which focuses on improving the lives of people who live in remote or difficult areas.

    According to the King His Majesty Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck, every generation must interpret GNH in their own way because of the changes of time and environment that they would live in. He believes that a vibrant economy propelled by the right kind of technology and educated civilization is the very foundation on which national happiness can be built.

    Dr. Cass Ingram formulates the first topical therapeutical cream from wild spruce resin for normal, damaged, or aging skin. Ideal as a facial and hand cream.

    The basis for the resin’s high position in ancient societies was because it was highly effective. It was used for skin diseases, wounds, digestive disorders, and for increasing physical strength.”
    — Dr. Cass Ingram The Wilderness Doctor
    LAKE FOREST, IL, UNITED STATES, December 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Dr. Cass Ingram develops the first-ever medicinal cream from raw spruce resin for skincare and regeneration. An osteopathic physician and medicinal plant researcher, Dr. Ingram combines wild spruce resin with wild pine resin and natural wild essential oils in a beeswax and jojoba base. The health benefits of spruce resin are explained extensively in his book, "Natural Cures from Wild Tree Resins."

    “For hundreds of years, Scandinavia’s have used the potent spruce complex for wounds and lesions that don’t heal. The aboriginals use spruce resin for cancer and skin diseases. The basis for the resin’s high position in ancient societies was because it was highly effective. It was used for skin diseases, wounds, digestive disorders, and for increasing physical strength,” said Dr. Ingram.

    The book provides information and studies on the many uses of wild tree resins. A few of the many skin conditions spruce resin can support revealed by the book are:
    • aging skin
    • psoriasis
    • eczema
    • dermatitis
    • bed or diabetic ulcers
    • stump amputations
    • wounds that won’t heal

    “There can be no question that spruce resin possesses miraculous properties for wound healing. The spruce cream can be put on once or twice a day. Good for both men and women, it tightens everything: your hands, your feet, and your arms,” said Dr. Ingram.

    “5 years ago I had radiation treatment for a nickel-sized carcinoma lesion on my upper cheek. The radiation treatment was able to halt the cancer’s spread, and over the next 5 months, new skin gradually grew back in the treated area. However, I recently noticed that the lesion seemed to be reappearing. I decided to try the spruce cream and applied it to the area for 10 days and nights. At first, the cream caused redness and a mild burning sensation, but by the 10th day the burning stopped and the redness began to recede and within 72 hours the skin appearance returned to normal. Needless to say, I was impressed with the results,” said spruce cream user S.T.

    Dr. Ingram’s spruce cream is produced by PurelyWild™. The book is available as an ebook for immediate reading and printed copies are available in softcover. For more information and to order the spruce cream or other natural medicine, visit www.cassingram.com or call 800-295-3737.

  • Fungie, Ireland’s Favourite Dolphin, Brought to Life in New Children’s Book Called ‘Finn’s Friend Fungie’

    The Real Finn and Fungie

    The Real Finn and Fungie

    On the heels of the first anniversary of Fungie's disappearance, a heart-warming new way to remember him has arrived.

    There are few dolphins that inspire such fond memories from those who encountered him more than Fungie, the dolphin of Dingle Bay. This lovely story, told from Finn's point of view, is very touching.”
    — Liz Sandeman
    DUNDALK, COUNTY LOUTH, IRELAND, December 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Lori Henninger Smith has released two new, interactive books which feature real-life Irish dolphins as the main characters, including one about Fungie, Ireland's favourite dolphin.

    Henninger Smith said, "After witnessing the collective sadness Fungie's disappearance created not only in those in Ireland, but around the world, I wanted to find a fun, happier ending to his beautiful story that would leave everyone with a smile when remembering the famous dolphin." "So, I re-wrote his story's ending as an adventurous new beginning."

    After Fungie went missing, imagine if he were spotted outside the Sydney Opera House! Imagining Fungie visiting famous locations around the world is the creative storyline of Lori Henninger Smith's new children's book, "Finn's Friend Fungie." She suggests perhaps Fungie just wanted to travel and expand his universe. This idea is a bit auto-biographical for Henninger Smith, an American who expanded her own universe by moving to Ireland in 2020 to go back to college at the age of 57, and found herself living on Carlingford Lough during the pandemic, when Finn also decided to take up residence in the beautiful setting of the Cooley Peninsula.

    Henninger Smith's books caught the eye of Liz Sandeman, the co-founder of Marine Connection, a UK-based, dolphin and whale charity. Ms. Sandeman said, "There are few dolphins that inspire such fond memories from those who encountered him more than Fungie, the dolphin of Dingle Bay. This lovely story, told from Finn's point of view, is very touching." A portion of the proceeds will go to Marine Connection to further their efforts to end captivity.

    The second book is about Finn, a bottlenose dolphin whom the town of Carlingford embraced as their own. During the pandemic in 2020, Finn was spotted favouring the ferry boat area in Greenore, inspiring his book title, "Down by the Dock."

    Finn and Fungie are real-life dolphins who spark interest for further learning on wildlife and marine conservation. Henninger Smith and Marine Connection are planning an additional entity called Team Finn and Fungie - Help End Captivity. A unique program school kids around the world can join, emphasizing the need for the end of captivity of all whales and dolphins and therefore helping to ensure freedom for all cetaceans for generations to come.

    Children can use "Scan and Listen" audio codes to hear the books read aloud, turning the page when they hear the dolphin squeak; narrated by Irish Indie Folksinger, Orla Travers, of the band Sillk. "Scan and Learn" codes are scattered throughout the books that when scanned with a smartphone camera, they provide more information about items on the page. A fun website has been created to accompany the books that offers more fun images and videos of these curious dolphins along with downloadable coloring sheets and more. The site also has resources for teachers to use the books in the classroom.

    Readers are introduced to the real dolphins on the last pages of the books with images and more fun facts such as do you know where Fungie got his name? Or did you know he is in the Guinness Book of World Records? They will also meet key people in the lives of these dolphins- Jeannine Masset, who photographed Fungie in Dingle Bay for over twenty five years. And Damian Smith and John Kelly, divers in Carlingford who check up on Finn. There is also a nod to Paddy Ferriter, the lighthouse person credited with discovering Fungie in 1983.

    Beautifully illustrated by Italian artist, Alice Pescarin, accurately depicting the areas in which these dolphins reside(d), Carlingford Lough and Dingle Bay. The books are presented by Silver Girl Sails Publishing, Ltd. and are distributed by Ingram Spark internationally.

  • L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future is Now Available in the United Kingdom

    "L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume 37" is now available in the UK

    Gazelle Book Services in the United Kingdom to distribute the Galaxy Press line of L. Ron Hubbard fiction works.

    Galaxy Press and Gazelle Book Services are partners in the United Kingdom

    “L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume 37” is available in the UK thanks to a newly established partnership with Gazelle Book Distributors.

    The Writers of the Future competition is one of the most prestigious competitions open to science fiction and fantasy authors and illustrators.”
    — Marvin Blagden, Managing Director Gazelle Book Distributors
    LANCASTER, LANCASHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM, December 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The international best-selling series, “L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future,” is available in the United Kingdom thanks to a newly established partnership between Galaxy Press and Gazelle Book Distributors, including Volume 37 now in stores.

    Marvin Blagden, Managing Director Gazelle Book Distributors, stated, “The Writers of the Future competition is one of the most prestigious competitions open to science fiction and fantasy authors and illustrators, with several previous winners coming from the UK. Writers of the Future Volume 37 has just been released and is once again bursting with amazing stories from some truly remarkable and thought-provoking writers.” He concluded, “Gazelle Book Services are proud to be working with Galaxy Press to promote this inspiring competition and accompanying title.”

    The L. Ron Hubbard Writers and Illustrators of the Future Contests were created in 1983 and have left an indelible mark on the fields of science fiction and fantasy. With nearly four decades of developing new professional writers and cultivating new professional illustrators, the impact that the two Contests have had on the field is best summed up by The Midwest Book Review calling Writers of the Future “the gold standard of emerging talent into the field of science fiction fantasy that has contributed more to the genre than any other source.”

    With Contest entrants from over 175 countries and winners from over 50, the United Kingdom is in the ranks of countries contributing to that gold standard of emerging talent. Illustrators of the Future Golden Brush Award winner Dan Watson, from Earley, Berkshire, was published in L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume 37. When announced as the grand prize winner, Watson stated, “I’d like to thank L. Ron Hubbard and Galaxy Press for creating and organizing this event. Thank you to all of my friends all over the world. I love the Fantasy and Science Fiction community – the writing, the people.”

    In addition to the Contests, the Writers and Illustrators of the Future Podcast is now in its third year with interviews on some of the biggest names in publishing, including the podcast interview with international bestselling UK author R.J. Ellory. Listen at https://bit.ly/RJElloryPodcast.

    The L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future Online Workshop is a free workshop created to provide valuable tools for a writer of any skill. Designed as an intermediate-level writing course, people of all levels have found this workshop helpful with the story structure, character development, the formulation of story ideas, and the business of writing.

    The award-winning Writers of the Future Forum provides a place for aspiring writers to meet up with like-minded authors, providing a safe place to discuss and share ideas, get help, and make friends.

    The Writers of the Future Writing Contest, now in its 39th year, was initiated by L. Ron Hubbard to provide “a means for new and budding writers to have a chance for their creative efforts to be seen and acknowledged.” Based on its success, its sister contest, Illustrators of the Future, was created five years later to provide that same opportunity for aspiring artists.

    The over 500 past winners and published finalists of the Writing Contest have published over 1,800 novels and nearly 6,200 short stories. In addition, they have produced 33 New York Times bestsellers, and their works have sold over 60 million copies.

    The 370 past winners of the Illustrating Contest have produced over 6,000 illustrations, 360 comic books, graced 624 books and albums with their art, and visually contributed to 68 TV shows and 40 major movies.
