For South Florida Pet Lovers

Who can resist an adorable kitty like Kline?

Everybody loves Kline.

My good friend, professional photographer and animal lover Beverly Pipes is expanding her repertoire. For years, she’s delighted local pet owners and their pets alike with her whimsical, creative photos through her business, Fine Furtography. As anyone who’s used her services can attest, Beverly’s skills are unsurpassed in this arena. And hey, even though I don’t qualify as a “pet”, I can definitely confirm that Bev’s photographic abilities also extend to humans. She is after all, the one responsible for the lovely photo on the back of my book, as well as the head shots and pictures I use to promote my other activities like The Liberty Belle Hour.

Now in addition to pet (and human) photography, Bev will soon be expanding her business to include pet events and other fun happenings. It’s a work in progress, so please stay tuned for updates! 😉

Words to remember as we begin another week.

We’ll chat about Ava’s latest exciting career developments, her thoughts on the latest political happenings and her take on the current news of the day, including the midterm elections.

The Liberty Belle Hour debuts on Blog Talk Radio Tonight

Looking forward to the debut of The Liberty Belle Hour at its new home, Blog Talk Radio, and new time, 6 p.m. Eastern, tonight. Steve Trevelise of WIP Philly Sportsradio will be joining me for my inaugural broadcast on BTR. This will be a new experience, hosting a show and managing the switchboard and chat room, having been very spoiled at WAFS, where all I had to do was show up and talk. Guess I’ll get an idea of what it’s like week in and week out for my Conservative Republican Forum co-host, Steve! 🙂

See you at 6 p.m.

Update: It was a great show tonight with Steve Trevelise! To listen to the archive, click here.

My Interviews with Stacey Joiner on Water Signs and the Writing Process

Just thought I’d post these videos to my blog, which represent one of my earliest forays into using this medium to promote Water Signs. My dear friend Stacey Joiner, certified Yoga instructor, massage therapist, and author of an excellent self-help book entitled, You Deserve The Royal Treatment: A Women’s Guide To Living Royally, interviewed me about my novel and the writing process. At the time, we were both figuring out new and creative ways to market our products, the use of video being just one of them.

Hopefully I’ve improved since the early days, having had much practice in the 19 months following these two appearances, during which I’ve interviewed fellow patriots at grassroots protests, co-hosted Blog Talk Radio programs, appeared as a guest on countless internet radio shows and eventually started my own internet TV broadcast on WAFS called The Liberty Belle Hour (appearing on BTR, beginning on August 5).

And now that I have a Flip of my own, I’ll be adding more video soon.

The Liberty Belle Hour Moves to Blog Talk Radio

Due to the closing of the WAFS-TV studio in Lake Worth, I’ve decided to move The Liberty Belle Hour to Blog Talk Radio, where it will air every Thursday night at 6 p.m.

Remaining true to the original format, each week I will interview guests from a variety of fields including authors, political commentators, candidates, singers, small business owners and medical professionals. As my show page states:

Join conservative writer, blogger, activist and author of the book Water Signs: A Story of Love and Renewal, Daria DiGiovanni, for a high-energy hour of passionate debate, insightful analysis and fascinating conversation on everything from pop culture to politics. Every Thursday night at 6 p.m., Daria will apply her unique blend of humor, intelligence and eloquence to the relevant topics of the day, as well as feature exciting and interesting guests from a variety of backgrounds including small business owners, singers, health professionals and authors. Freedom rings every Thursday night at 6 p.m. on Blog Talk Radio with The Liberty Belle Hour.

Maybe we’ll even devote an episode or two to the writing process and the themes I’ve discussed here on the blog pertaining to Water Signs. It has always been a bit frustrating not to have the opportunity to really expound on some of the deeper meanings of the book (though I am grateful to all those who’ve given me a forum to discuss my work) on the air. This will give me the chance to finally do that.

One thing that is changing: although I do have a webcam, for the time being, the BTR version of Liberty Belle will be strictly audio. Perhaps as time goes on I will reconsider; for now, since I will also have to manage the switchboard, I think I’d better get used to multi-tasking first! 😉

Please join me for my inaugural broadcast on Thursday, August 5 at 6 p.m.

Sunday Inspiration

“Seize the day. Pray for grace from God’s hand, then nothing will stand in your way.”

I discovered this wonderful song thanks to my friend Sabrina, who included it as part of a collection of inspirational music she’d burned onto CDs for Christmas gifts last year. Just like daily prayer time, listening to motivating music helps keep me focused, strong and firm in my beliefs, and in the accomplishment of my dreams.  No matter what may be going on around me, especially things I cannot control, I do know I am fulfilling God’s purpose for me by using the gifts He’s given me — the ability to write, speak and communicate effectively.

Writing professionally has been the only thing I’ve ever really wanted to do from the time I was old enough to tell everyone around me, but it’s also one of those “impractical” career choices — much like acting or singing — that through which few find meaningful success. No, it wasn’t my parents who warned me about that; quite the opposite. They encouraged my dreams, particularly with every A+ essay, book report or teacher conference in which my budding skills were highly praised. And when it was time to go to high school, I was assigned to Advanced Placement (AP) English classes, where my love for reading and writing was expertly guided along by some fabulous teachers, including Mrs. Fenning (RIP).

Truth be told, I was the one who killed my dream before even giving it a chance to materialize. Instead of listening to my own God-given guidance and heeding the encouragement of family, I decided it would be just too hard to make a go of it as an aspiring journalist, opinion writer and novelist. But even while I spent many years working hard and trying to adjust to various corporate positions with varying degrees of compatibility to my skills set, I kept up with my handwritten journals. And especially during the “Ken” and early-Florida-years phase, I wrote copiously in lovely, hard-cover books with floral designs, which ended up being an invaluable resource when I finally sat down to write Water Signs some 14 years later.

Writing is also therapy, and I am convinced that — along with everything else I did — including the successful session I eventually took with the “remote viewer”, it played a significant role in ridding me of panic and anxiety disorder forever. Unsurprisingly, as I look back on that experience, I can also see how suppressing my real career goals and rejecting my life’s purpose also contributed to the emotional disorder, along with the deep-seated matters of the heart. (I will devote a post soon exclusively to panic and anxiety disorder, in the hope it will be helpful to others who may struggling with this formidable problem).

When the phenomenon known as the internet came along, and with it blogs, print-on-demand and social media in the 2.0 phase, I saw that as my opportunity to finally go for it, professionally speaking. This amazing technology has made it possible to showcase my work to an unlimited audience, network with people all around the world, connect with like-minded individuals, and via sites like You Tube, enhance every entry with an appropriate song or video.

At last, I achieved my childhood dream of writing a novel, and was able to publishing without having to grovel to a literary agent, or cope with one rejection letter after another. I could write exactly what I wanted, and present my work directly to my audience — no dream-killing gatekeeper required.

I was even able to expand into other areas previously not thought of, such as talk radio hosting, which has enhanced my political activism, commentary, blogging and novel-writing.

Speaking of which, here’s the link to last night’s Conservative Republican ForumThe Liberty Belle Hour is currently on hiatus while I search for a new home.

Have a great Sunday and seize the day!
