What Happened to Tate Publishing?

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , ,

I am not sure. But something happened.

I’ve published five books with Tate Publishing.

Yesterday, I received an email with the same message that now replaces the Tate Publishing main website url for all authors and the public:

Tate Publishing is experiencing a transition period and we are no longer accepting any new authors or artists. All authors and artists will be contacted directly within the next few weeks about the status of your production and your options for completing your projects.
Alternatively, if you wish to terminate your relationship with us before this transition is complete, please fill out and return the appropriate form for each title:
  • If your book or album HAS been released, click here.
  • If your book or album HAS NOT been released, click here.

That was the end of the email, but for the links, which you can take.

Before you read further, it’s important you experience what I did – and other authors, too. Go ahead and read the links, to get the picture.

(@#(*)%&(!!_#@*(%&)

I wanted to write about this and what it means to me.

Personal testimony. I’ve been bed-ridden and disabled for almost 11 years, after a tragic car accident took me to the doorway of Heaven. I lost my standing as the Keck USC-and Stanford-trained anesthesiologist that I was. My coveted Fellowship training in critical care was spent on my own body. I’m grateful that much medical knowledge remains in me.

I’ve miraculously survived, when people took me for dead. Many gave up on me.

Mostly, I won’t give up on myself because I know that God doesn’t give up on me.

I’ve suffered. I went through hell learning how to walk and talk again. I still can’t stand up without almost fainting.

slipperymountainThe physical struggle has been one gigantic and unforgiving mountain. And it hasn’t been filled with green pastures, no. It’s been an icy, slippery, cold and dark. And lonely. It’s one messed-up, challenging mountain of recovery, every single step of the way etched to perfection. Or else. I fell. I got DI again. I got up.

No one told me I was on this mountain. I fell again.  I had no preparation, no gear. Just God, and the ‘No More Tears’ I felt… and the ‘Hum, drum, drip, drop’ of my PICC line IV, 24/7 … these were constant reminders of a life worth living. A Live Worth Living. My LIFE.

Loving friends on Facebook, You Tube, and Twitter wrote me, sang a song to me, and supported my efforts. #MyCaringFriends are there to the end. They saved me, too.

I didn’t look like myself. I looked dead.And at other times, I looked pretty but felt dead. I was ridiculed and taken as a liar, like millions of patients with chronic or invisible illnesses not readily diagnosed by trained doctors who are trained to think in a certain, structured way: the doctor’s SOAP Note.

I’m not structured. I don’t fit into what doctors learn.

I knew that inside, I radiated life. I felt it.

I wasn’t myself, but I was still ‘me.’

Being an ‘M.D.’ didn’t always help me; in fact, it hurt me many times as I was smart, female, and pretty – that’s a bad combination for questioning doctors and defending one’s self to people who are supposed to love you. Then. I fell. NO, a doctor dropped me on the neuro exam. Oh well. I dusted myself off. I did that every day, and kept my eyes on God. That’s my focus for survival. I don’t know any other way of living: I got up one more time.

After five books, I wanted to go off disability and become a full-time writer to tell my story in the hopes that it would help someone else. I also wished to make a new life for my children, to salvage something from all the losses. For this, I was laughed at even more. I don’t care: my fate does not rely in man, but in God.

I still have hope that my dreams will come true.

Now, I don’t know what is going to happen to my books.

The Little Missy Two-Shoes Series is what worries me the most, as I want my readinggrandchildren to giggle at them.

I Can Hear Their Laughter

I want to sit in the sun-lit rays

By a leaded glass window

In the stillness of glistening, misty light.

I’ll read to my grandchildren

As I simultaneously recall

Reading it to my daughter for her birthday

So long ago, before the car accident.

I’ll sit with my back very straight,

to show children that reading is something

you sit straight for – it’s something … special. 

handprintsAnd I’ll smile. 

I’ll smile. 

Because I’ll know that my dream came true.

All for the grace of God, My Dream Came True.

My grandchildren will hold these books in their tiny, little hands. I can see their fingers.

I still have to teach many other children about not being worried or frightened about such things as ladybugs and going to school.

Missy’s brother has a special stuffed animal. They sometimes fight over it.

MandiPandi is her best friend, with Lyme Disease.

Little Missy Two-Shoes loves everyone, as she hasn’t been tainted by peer pressure. She’s pure…That’s my dream.

Assessment. Believe me when I say that I’m used to taking negativity and turning it into positivity. Every problem has a solution. Life is like math. Just take the problem and turn it into a variety of solutions, if needed. I go over all this in my newest book. Oh!

But I can tell you one thing, as I have great clarity: It’s going to be a new beginning. Something good is going to happen, something that would not have happened if events didn’t line themselves up just so.

Remain hopeful. Keep writing. Be kind.
Keep moving onward and forward, My Caring Friends!

~Dr. Margaret Aranda

3polarizeintopositivity

Turn negativity into positivity.

Because that’s what I do:

I take the negativity and turn it into positivity.

You can do the same thing, too.

Stay tuned.

And if you listen very carefully, you too can hear the pages turning as I read Little Missy Two-Shoes Likes a Ladybug to my grandchildren … just listen ….

…and smile.

“…and Mom and Dad can hardly wait for school to start again!”

~ It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

by Jonny Mathis (lyrics)

Let’s get our minds set that we’re going to have a great Holiday season and try to be in a good mood.

Well, with kids running around, or unexpected company, or with teens who aren’t allowed to go into the living room (in fear that more company with more kids aren’t unexpectedly knocking on the door even now), it can be a challenge to be “peaceful.”

The list of problems can be longer than your own Wish List; chronic illness, pain, depression, and even suicidal behavior can loom.

prayers

 

The Holidays are particularly lonely for single people, children without parents, and parents without children.

We can stop and cherish a moment of prayer for the hungry, too. And for all mourning the death of singer George Michael, one of our favorite 80’s singers.

The following practices are useful every day, not just for Holiday vacation.

10 Ways to Be Santa’s Peace at Home:

gratitude-is-vitamin-soul-life-daily-quotes-pictures-sayings-375x195

1. Be Grateful: You are your own peace. You have the internet, eyes and fingers, much more than most.  Just take a deep breath and smile. Everyone looks better with a smile and a twinkle in their eye. Yes, be your own Santa. Seriously, why not?

victorian-christmas-santa-victorian-santa-christmas-sign

2. Be Santa: Here’s how Santa brought peace: giving, twinkling, laughing with a bowl of jelly.

Try to make someone else smile and let’s spread the real spirit of Christmas.

Try to extend unending optimism and happiness.

It’s bound to hit a few of the lonely, making the world a better place.

3. Be Messy: for a change, let everything get a little messy like Santa’s workroom.

messy-bun-imageJust keep it healthy, for example, with kitchen and bathroom cleanliness.

Give yourself a break.

And if you can do a messy bun, here are directions to make you feel just a little perked up!

 

4. Listen to music: soothes the soul. Music has been shown to decrease chronic pain and depression by 20 – 25%.

5. Give Hugs. Cherish those around you and hug them like you’re never going to see them again. Heart-to-heart hugs for 5 seconds have been shown to optimize health… and they’re contagious, build moments to cherish, giving children memories of a loving childhood.

Wishing you joy and peace every day, not just during the Holidays.

5 Steps to Pin on your First Pinterest Board

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

Thank you for reading on the importance of Re-Tweeting your friends, and for realizing that Pinning serves as a library for all your Tweets and blogs, too.

What’s Pinterest? It’s like a bulletin board with thumb tacks holding up different categories. Take content from all your social media sites: blogs, Google+, Twitter.

To Pin from FB, just hover over an image. The Pinterest logo appears if you can Pin.

5 Steps- Pin to your first Pinterest Board:

  1. You’ve already read Article #1 to  Set up a Pinterest account & Set up the Pinterest Tool Bar Go ahead and go there now; you are set up to come back!  This page isn’t going anywhere.
  2. Click your Pinterest tool now, as you read this article. Wait 5 seconds. Then see all the Pins that appear? Click on 1 to Pin it to your social media board!
  3. Make Decisions. You can Edit the Pin: (a) Add your own Twitter name (highly recommended) or state a personal message. (b) Increase your social media sharing:  At the bottom of your Pin, Click “Share to: 🔲 Facebook &  🔲Twitter. Now you see why I want you to start Pinning! It keeps all your blogs & Tweets in one place for all the world to see! Forever!
  4. Hit “Pin!” Congratulations! You just Pinned your first social media article on Pinning to your first Pin on your very own Pinterest Board!
  5. Confirm that you Pinned A pop-up announcement says you were successful. The Confirmation also says,”See Pin Now” to re-Pin the same Pin to another board. Keep doing this repeatedly to Pin to each Board. It’s that simple – now you’re a Pro.

Share. See my Social Media Pinterest Board for examples of how friendships and information is best utilized by promoting others, too… just my opinion. Also, this is a great gift #DIY for all your social media buffs, your family and your employer, too! Here are a few Pinterest Boards I make as gifts for others:

#1 BONUS: Finally, to top off your social media skills, go to the bottom of this article and Click the “Twitter” button (Don’t have Twitter yet? Start Tweeting by going here today!) “Mention” @DrMargareAranda in this article’s Tweet! She doesn’t mind at all, and this is a perfect example of how you are just being a friend by surprising someone by Tweeting their writings!

It’s funny how we’re not supposed to self-promote our books or services but how hard is it to find someone else that actually will Tweet your writings?

~Dr. Margaret Aranda

5 Ways to be a Friend on Twitter with a Gift BONUS

Some of you have been following my blog and I want to be the first to share some things I’ve been doing without reading any guides. It just happened that I was thinking of Christmas gifts to give my friends… so that’s how this story started!

So many social media experts give great advice. It pays to listen to someone who’s been Tweeting or posting on Facebook for 10 years.

bonusscrabble

Having secrets about social media hints to reach your most-engaged friends (not “Followers”) is the key. And this year, I gave several authors and friends their own Pinterest Boards for Christmas!

Why, I have over 312 Boards on my Pinterest, with 48.3K Pins, and I want you to share in this great, permanent way to save all your Tweets, blogs, G+, and Google Searches!

You should Pin on Pinterest, too!
~Dr Margaret Aranda

But what’s the big secret about being a friend and doing a Re-Tweet (RT) on content from their Twitter page, to yours? It’s not a marketing ploy or a sales pitchy aspect of a friendship to simply run along to 5 or 10 different Twitter friends, RT their content, say “Thanks for being you” and run along while others come to your page for more variety, less self-promoting, and well… friendship!

In the end, being a friend is all you have to do.

It’s not ‘social media.’ It’s a friendship.

~Dr. Margaret Aranda

Here’s 5 Ways to be a Friend on Twitter with a BONUS:

  1. Lift one another up. I RT, you RT, we both RT and we just feel good inside. It’s a great feeling to contribute messages to the international arena, especially if you have a great message. Same thing with Pinterest: in my opinion, any Twitter page or Pinterest board is optimized with ‘outside’ content from other supporters of the topics at hand.
  2. Say ‘Thank You.’ Manners are important in every aspect in your life, whether it’s your children, partner, employees or the grocery store clerk. Use manners on Twitter, too. You’d be surprised how much 1 simple ‘Thank You‘ can do for somebody’s day. Here are some examples: Say, “Thank You for Following me” “Thank You for the RT” “Thank you for the Mention.”
  3. Give recognition. Publicly appreciate your Top Supporters & Influencers, RT-ers, those who “Mention.” After all, these friends are engaged in what you do, and it’s a real partnership on Twitter.
  4. Do your math. I use Communit.com as an indispensable tool to do the math on the number of RTs and Mentions. These are the most important data sets to track engagement. This tool allows me to see, for example, person @MediBasket with this: 0 RT, 0 Mentions vs. my 3 RTs and 2 Mentions.
  5. Engage, or Don’t Engage. In this example #4, I decide: I won’t RT anything this moment. I don’t want to unnecessarily SPAM someone who virtually never RTs anyone else’s Tweets at all, or someone who doesn’t engage with me. It’s all in fun, anyway and we should all be friendly and not overbearing. My Top RT-ers RT virtually everything I send when I ‘Tag’ as a Mention. What’s a “Mention” you ask? It’s when you (or in this case, Communit.com) Tweets something like this:

@sherrig108 @DrMargareAranda @SelimYeniceri @JETAR9 @JulezPooh @TBGTNT : Thank you for being Top Engaged in my community this week. Sent by Communit.com – get this FREE

In this example, I Tagged 6 identities in a Mention. (Go ahead and Tag me if you think your content is valuable. I’ll decide whether or not to RT it). There is literally no way for me to otherwise track RTs or Mentions other than by using a Twitter market tool, folks. Thank you for bearing with me on this one, and really…

… no one has ever complained about an automated ‘Thank You’ for a Follow, RT, or Mention.

pinterestlogo#1 BONUS to Max Out: Many people don’t know that when someone Pins a Pin from your Pinterest Board, they can choose to Tweet and FB at the same time! That is why I’ve invested so much of my social media time to Pinning. It’s a permanent folder that looks pretty, too.

#2 BONUS to Max Out: I’ve said this several times now, but I’ll say it again:

  • Embed the Pinterest tool bar (see Pinteres icon to the left?)  on your coscreen-shot-2016-12-24-at-1-10-32-ammputer! This way, you can simply Click it – and POOF! A bunch of Pins pop up and… you can Pin away! Follow these steps now:
  1. First Join Pinterest.
  2. Then Download the FREE Pinterest Browser button to your tool bar.
  3. Then come back to this article.
  4. ** Get Pins ** Click your icon (looks like icon on the left)!
  5. WoW! Tons of Pins show up – one for each image and… they automatically link back to this url website article   😉 ! That’s why my social media article Series started off with My Article #1.

 

More hints will be coming later, but just wanted to get this out to you, my friends.

Have a happy vacation time with your family… and if you know a single person or someone who is out of town, think about inviting them as your guest to sit at your table. That’s the reason for the Season!

#5: The Introduction: Archives of the Vagina: A Journey through Time

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

 Not for children. Parental supervision recommended.
My “first talk” wasn’t actually a “talk” talk. I was thirteen years old, and my mother handed me a red hardcover book. The Red Book. I was told to turn to say, the seventh chapter. Okay, basic anatomy. The vagina was depicted in a large color illustration of the uterus and fallopian tubes, and there was a small illustration of the penis.
No preamble, no introduction, no warning. Initially it was pretty boring. A couple was sitting on the couch. They made it clear that it was a married couple. They made a big deal about that part. Horrified, my eyes widened as the penis was inserted into the vagina. What? I had to read it over again. How did that happen so fast? Wait! How did that happen so fast? How could that happen with their clothes on? I read it again. They definitely still had their clothes on.

#1: On National Authors’ Day: Ghost Writer Writes My Book Review

#4: Jeffrey Leake, MD: Forward to Archives of the Vagina

What a timely book for today’s women. Archives of the Vagina: A Journey Through Time is timeless and encapsulates the essence of what women and girls need to know about the female human body as it ages. Dr. Aranda’s book on women’s health is poised to set a new bar. The treatise on Aristotle and the medical thinking of ancient times is enlightening, and the real stories on periods and menopause are tongue-in-cheek, boisterous, and fun. So who should read this book? I think this book can be given to a girl one chapter at a time and, as she ages, be used as a comprehensive reference.  As an age-management physician myself, I find that the concepts on hormone-replacement therapy, nutrition, and exercise are unparalleled for telling today’s women and girls what they need to know now.
And from a man’s perspective, I think this book will enlighten men on the inner complexities of their women and girls and how the changes from menarche to menopause affect them all. The reader is engrossed in self-reflection throughout, making the principles personal and relevant. Dr. Aranda has captured the transfer of knowledge to successfully advance the causes of healthy aging, patient education, and relationships. This is simply excellence in medicine.

1. Walter E. Jacobson, M.D., Best-Selling Author

Forgive to Win

“When Dr. Aranda asked me if I would read her book “Archives of the Vagina: A Journey through Time” and write a short testimonial if I felt the book deserved my praise, I agreed to do so as a favor to her more than anything else because I did not think the subject matter would appeal to me. I was wrong. This is an incredibly interesting book that is extremely informative and covers in great detail the many issues a woman has to deal with in her life journey from childhood to old age. The material is important for women insofar as it brilliantly educates and instructs. Additionally, it is a valuable resource for men, to help them better understand and appreciate the women in their lives. Kudos to Dr. Aranda for her vast knowledge and compassion.

Archives of the Vagina: A Journey Through Time,” written by Dr. Margaret Aranda, is a marvelous book concerning female human body as it ages and women’s health. The author has masterfully exploited her personal experiences and created such a masterpiece that will excel any other book in its related area.

1. Shamsah Amersi, MD, FACOG

Obstetrician & Gynecologist

Santa Monica, CA

“This beautiful epiphany-provoking book offers women practical insights into the topics of hysterectomy, ovarian removal, informed consent, and their sequelae. It is enormously helpful for all women facing medical options to reevaluate surgery and seek out more conservative options to prevent an irreversible and potentially adverse outcome to their overall balance. All women deserve the kind of serious attention that Dr. Aranda gives to this topic, unreservedly bringing it out into the open. Her clarification of the WHI is brilliant, and patients as well as physicians will benefit from this book.

Women can gain an understanding of how to make care of themselves and how to help other women ‘in the making’ develop into healthier individuals, both physically and mentally. This is a must read!”
