Publishers and authors finding success using new book discovery platform

We wanted to gamify the process of users finding their next great read, so we took the psychology and functionality of dating apps to bring books to life in a creative way.”

— Brant Menswar, Booky Call CEO

WINTER PARK, FLA., UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, August 12, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Readers across the globe are ditching the dating scene on Friday nights, preferring to cuddle up with books. Booky Call, a free book discovery platform cleverly disguised as a dating app, understands monogamy is so 20th century when it comes to readers and their book dates.
 
“We wanted to gamify the process of users finding their next great read,” Booky Call CEO Brant Menswar noted, “so we took the psychology and functionality of dating apps to bring books to life in a creative way.” Rather than making TBR decisions based on the back cover’s plot summary, Booky Call users scroll through a book’s “humanized” dating profile before deciding to swipe left or right on it. A right swipe leads to the book sending the user a DM with links to date it: asking to “meet in person” for the print version, “keep it digital” for the ebook or let the book “whisper in your ear” for the audiobook.  

Author Andy Roamer has seen positive results from his book’s dating profile. “Readers are noticing and clicking on my book big time! How I have longed to say that after a few years of publishing my YA series, ‘The Pizza Chronicles’ and not seeing as many sales as I would like,” Roamer said. “I’ve joined only recently with my first book of the series, ‘Why Can’t Life Be Like Pizza?,’ and it’s already paying off with so many matches and clicks.”
 
Booky Call’s date-abase includes fiction and nonfiction new releases as well as back catalog titles from major publishing houses, indie publishers and self-published authors. Titles from bestselling authors and those just entering publishing are enjoying book-ups.

Valerie Willis, COO of 4 Horsemen Publishing, contracted with Booky Call on multiple titles. “We’ve seen a huge increase in Amazon rankings across the board,” she said. “The authors and readers seem to love this interaction.”

Madison Taylor of Page Two agreed. “The profiles are so creative,” she said. Briah Krueger, who writes under the name of B.A. McRae, said she was quite impressed with the profiles, including the one for her debut. In her blog, “The Optimistic Author,” she noted the ingenuity of the app’s content. “Each book comes with details beyond your wildest bookish dreams, certainly more juicy deets than any synopsis or review,” she wrote. “You’ll get a personal inside scoop on why you’d want to swipe right on this particular book and even get a little preview of the book itself.”

Publishers and authors looking to have readers “date” their titles can learn more about the app, the dating profiles and the process by visiting www.bookycall.com.
 
Booky Call is free to download and available in both the App Store and Google Play. Its revolutionary content has led to close to one million book matches since its launch in September 2021. The app has helped more than 300,000 book lovers all over the world find their next book dates on Friday nights — and every other night of the week.

Sima Azadegan Makes Red Carpet Appearance to Celebrate Law of Attraction Book Launch

Fashion Designer and CEO Sima Azadegan

Beverly Hills philanthropist / Sima Collezione founder Sima Azadegan made a special red carpet appearance for Natasha Graziano’s “Be It Until You Become It.”

Sima Collezione is a clothing line of heart and soul. I hope that my truth and my story can trickle down and help other ladies and other people who are going through this journey.”

— Sima Azadegan

MALIBU, CA, US, August 12, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Sima Collezione makes custom, six-figure evening dresses for an elite handful of clients. Mrs. Azadegan sketched out her “All Bright” collection while stuck at home, at the start of Covid in 2020. By September of 2021, she had embarked on an international whirlwind of runway shows, starting in Soho, New York. Then in February of 2022, she did shows at Palazzo Visconte, Milan, and Galerie La Bourbon, Paris. In March, she was on to the Forbes 30/50 Women International Summit, Abu Dhabi. Sima Collezione received positive coverage in Vogue, Bazar, Elle, Forbes, and Marie Claire among many more. The designer says that with her dresses, “ladies can tap in to understanding the deeper meaning of life. It’s not just about looking good and trying to make a statement. It’s about really being in touch with your authentic self and your inner light.”

Mrs. Graziano’s book launch was a great place for the philanthropist-turned designer to meet and mingle with other high-powered guests dedicated to personal transformation and the light of consciousness. Mrs. Graziano’s book describes the author’s MBS personal growth system, which pairs breathwork and meditation with purpose to achieve what her fans call life-changing results. “Be It Until You Become It” contains quotes from some early “New Thought” leaders, who strongly influenced today’s Law of Attraction coaches, motivational speakers, and authors.

Mrs. Graziano tells how in the space of about a year she went from rock bottom, hiding a drug addiction and living in her mom’s basement, to sharing a stage with some of today’s highest paid speakers. She has 10 million Instagram followers, who she calls her community. “I realized that every single day, no matter what you’re going through, you will always see a glimmer of light like a candle. And if you focus on that light, you can follow it out of the darkness. This is the light that can guide you to long-lasting happiness,” says Natasha.

Sima Azadegan’s “journey of inner consciousness” took “15 or 16” years of her life. Both women in telling their stories talk not only of abundance, but of being service-oriented, and using wealth as a tool to help others. Sima’s giving activity has included charitable board work and fundraising millions for Hadassah Hospital Neuromuscular Disease Foundation, Children’s Hospital, Children’s International, Beyond Vision and more. Natasha Graziano works with a charity to help the homeless which Sima also supported this night. Mrs. Graziano aims to one day open an orphanage in Africa.

Sima says, “There is a reason that I’m here. It’s to have my story heard. To allow this fashion project to stand for truthfulness. To stand for authenticity… This is not an ordinary clothing line. And I don’t see it as an ordinary clothing line. It’s a clothing line of heart and soul… I hope that my truth and my story can trickle down and help other ladies or other people who are going through this journey. So they know that there is light at the end of the tunnel. You can make it. It is possible to manifest your dreams and live the life you want to live.”

Some of the many notable guests at the event included Natasha’s husband, Michael Graziano, motivational speaker and friend of Oprah, Tim Storey, high stakes performance coach Thomas McCarthy, actor Michael-Leon Wooley (voice of Louis the Alligator in Disney’s Oscar-nominated animated feature film, The Princess and the Frog), and Caroline D’Amore, of the D’Amore pizza family.

Hollywood Sentinel, who was also in attendance stated that “It was really an outstanding event. Numerous guests walked up to fashion designer Sima Azadegan and commended her on what they said was her beautiful and perfectly tailored attire. One young woman, an aspiring fashion designer, was eager to get advice from the A-list designer. Sima was as kind and gracious as ever, even offering to give free coaching to the young artist.” Sima will be sharing more of her fashion advice with the public at the end of this month of August on a podcast which will be found at Hollywood Sentinel dot com. Both influencers will also appear in the online magazine later this summer.

50 AMP PRODUCTIONS and RE-LOGIC: Announcing the “Terraria” Graphic Novel Series

50 AMP’s first title, “Terraria,” based on one of the top 10 best-selling video games of all time, created by RE-LOGIC, coming in September!

ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI, UNITED STATES, August 11, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Founded by Grant Alter, 50 AMP PRODUCTIONS is a new publishing/entertainment company that will be bringing some of the hottest properties to comics and graphic novels. The first project coming from 50 AMP PRODUCTIONS is based on “Terraria,” which has sold over 45 million copies.

The collaboration between 50 AMP PRODUCTIONS and RE-LOGIC is not the first time “Terraria” has ventured into comics. In 2016, DC Comics released a one-shot “Terraria” comic book which was sold with two miniature figures. The comics were sold exclusively at Toys “R” Us, where they immediately sold out. Occasionally, copies can be found selling on eBay for over $60.

“We’ve been working closely with our partners at 50 AMP PRODUCTIONS on all aspects of the graphic novels – from script to line-art to coloring and more, we really feel like these are a perfect balance between staying authentic to the ‘Terraria’ experience while taking enough creative license to be able to craft an engaging story within the ‘Terraria’ universe,” said Ted Murphy, Head of Business Strategy and Marketing for RE-LOGIC, creators of the “Terraria” video game.

The single-issue comic books for this series will be available exclusively at 50ampproductions.com, along with some truly exciting collectible goodies.

The collected edition graphic novels will receive a wide distribution to stores and outlets that carry fine graphic novels everywhere.

Grant Alter brings well over a decade of experience in the world of comics and publishing, having served as writer, editor and Editor-in-Chief. Dean Koontz, Charlaine Harris, Stephen King, Paulo Coelho, “The Dresden Files,” the prequel to “Game of Thrones,” “The Wheel of Time,” Marvel Comics, Image Comics, Devil’s Due, Dabel Brothers, Dynamite Entertainment, Random House and Harper Collins are a few of the projects, people, and companies Alter has had the pleasure to be involved with over the years.

Along with Grant comes a solid team led by Creative Consultant Andrew Cosby, the co-founder of BOOM! Studios and co-creator of the hit SyFy TV series “Eureka;” and Creative Director Dave Lanphear, a veteran in the comics industry, having worked for Marvel Comics, DC Comics, Image Comics, CrossGen, Sony Pictures and many other media companies.

50 AMP PRODUCTIONS CEO Grant Alter said, “I have thoroughly enjoyed working with RE-LOGIC to tell a compelling original story that people of all ages can relate to, while ensuring that it adheres as closely to the existing elements of the game itself. We made this book to be accessible for new fans, but enjoyable for the fans who have supported this game for over a decade.”

Art by Cleo Mitchel

Cleo Mitchel, a self-taught award-winning abstract artist, is creating a name for herself in today’s art world.

My profound desire is to motivate and inspire my audience to practice freedom, follow their dreams and follow a path that makes them happy.”

— Cleo Mitchel

NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, August 11, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Cleo Mitchel has been awarded the ATIM’s Top 60 Masters Award by ArtTour International Magazine. Originally from the United States, this Artist has earned world recognition for his striking artworks.

Cleo Mitchel is a self-taught award-winning abstract artist whose work is making a mark in today’s art world, a talented artist who has a unique germ of pouring out her heart and soul into any works of art she creates. In her paintings, Mitchel uses shapes, colors, forms, and gestural makes to produce its effect rather than attempting to accurately describe a visual reality.

Mitchel’s works are creative and phenomenal, exploring concepts of humanity and nature in innovative and compelling artistic ways. In her works, mother nature takes center stage. Mitchel cleverly captures clouds, rainbows, plants, and other natural elements in a distinctive method of playing and mixing colors. As per the artist, “Art is something that makes you breathe with a different kind of happiness,” Mitchel uses colors to capture joyful and peaceful moments and express a rich ambiance and happiness.

During her creative process, there’s no planning or calculation; Mitchel’s approach is to let creativity instinctively lead the way. As a result, spontaneous imagery evolves as the artist naturally creates her works.

As per the artist, her profound desire is to motivate and inspire her audience to practice freedom, follow their dreams, and follow a path that makes them happy. Cleo Mitchel is one of the upcoming artists to watch in the art industry. She is a force to reckon.

Most recently, Mitchel’s trailblazing efforts in the global art scene were acknowledged when she was among the 60 artists to receive the ATIM’s Top 60 Masters Awards year 2022, published by ArtTour International Magazine, an Amazon Best-Seller book.
This book features all artists awarded the 2022 ATIM’s Top 60 Masters Awards.
