New Memoir on Picasso Makes a Number of Extraordinary Claims

CHATEAUGUAY, Quebec -- It would appear that Picasso and his famous model, Marie-Thérèse Walter, both went to their graves during the seventies with a rather ominous secret on their conscience, according to Marc Poissant, author of the new memoir, "Picasso and Marie-Thérèse Walter: The Censored Story" (ISBN: 978-0228879718). Also new for the art world is the fact that Picasso, unbeknownst to the art historians (his exegetes) secretly coded literally dozens of artworks (many of them now world-known masterpieces) around this highly private matter. A second subtitle inscribed inside the book aptly reads: "what he painted is not what he said."

Author's Synopsis:

In October 1977, Marie-Thérèse Walter was found hanged in her home's garage at age sixty-eight. She was famously known as the "sleeping blond muse," whose relationship with Pablo Picasso ('Pic,' as she preferred to call him) had always been extremely secretive.

In 1988, Dr. Herbert T. Schwarz published a study where he argued - many scholars later agreed - that he had sufficient evidence proving that the blond muse was already at Picasso's side at age fifteen in early 1925, which is two full years before the date given by Picasso who always claimed having met Marie-Thérèse on the streets of Paris in January 1927 when she was seventeen and a half. But then, this is also the man who once said "you must not always believe what I say; questions tempt you to tell lies, especially when there is no answer."

Dr. Schwarz' intrusion into the "Marie-Thérèse mystery," if on the right track, was still miles away from the truth; the evidence now shows that Picasso had in fact erased all of Marie-Thérèse's early-life narrative, starting with her family origins; because for anyone to know the identity of her true parents was also inevitably to know that Picasso had to know this young girl right from the crib.

This book tries to resuscitate some of Marie-Thérèse's cancelled narrative, as it also tries to unveil the roots and the mechanism of an old disinformation campaign, complete with cover-up; formerly under Picasso's strict control - later, under that of his heirs after he passed away in 1973 -, the scholars and the museums too have known about this hoax for well over a decade now.

Regrettably, however, ever since I published my study in 2009 a shabby posture has consistently prevailed within the Picasso Intelligentsia: video et taceo, see and keep silent. But isn't that Bob Dylan's "Blowin' in the Wind" all over again: "...and how many times can a man turn his head/Pretending he just doesn't see..."


With regard to the author, he can perhaps be best discovered by reading his Chapter 4. His book, "Picasso and Marie-Thérèse Walter: The Censored Story" (Tellwell Publishing, RRP $30) is available through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Indigo and more. Although one-on-one interviews are not envisioned at this time, the author will gracefully try to answer all pertinent questions for anyone having done his or her preliminary homework, which is to read the book in all of its details, the evidence behind the new claims forming a kind of complex patchwork which is spread all across most of the book's twenty-three chapters (

Hit Psychology Book Gets Updated Edition

BOSTON, Mass. -- "Calm & Sense: A Woman's Guide to Living Anxiety Free," the hit novel by psychologist Wendy Leeds (Calm Day Publishing, ISBN 978-0999901526), has an updated edition out with new updated studies and information. In honor of the new edition, there will be a limited time sale on the ebook version of the book across platforms.

Calm and sense uses a unique women-centric approach to anxiety. The book focuses on the needs of women. Combining up to date data from anxiety studies, personal stories, and practical tips, author Wendy Leeds offers something special in the space.

Leeds is a practicing psychotherapist with both a professional and a personal interest in finding ways to heal anxiety without medication. She has dealt with anxiety all her life and knows what it's like to live with the kind of worry and fear that make the smallest things in life difficult.

In 1995, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent several surgeries and six months of chemotherapy. It was at that low point, that she began a life-long journey to create a calm, centered joyful life, for herself and others. She began by reading everything she could get her hands on about anxiety. Then in 2006 she went back to school to earn two graduate degrees in psychology.

Ashley L Peterson of Mental Health at Home said, "['Calm & Sense'] doesn't feel like a therapist trying to educate you; rather, it has the feel of another regular person having a conversation with you, who just happens to have the knowledge and experience of a therapist. With the wide range of ideas offered in the book, I think any reader is likely to find things that work for them."

"For those who endure chronic anxiety, even seemingly innocuous daily tribulations can take on giant, scary, insurmountable portions," said Roberta Rosenthal Hawkins, MFA, PhD. "'Calm & Sense' is a loving, gentle, often witty, and infinitely helpful path through one's jungle of fears. As one might hope of any jungle guide, the author's compass is sure, her survival kit is well-stocked, and her cheerful, can-do spirit is reassuring and encouraging the whole way."

"Calm and Sense" is nationally distributed by Cardinal Publishing Group. It is published by Calm Day Publishing, and available for sale on Amazon, Barnes and, and where books are sold.

New Financial Literacy Book – A Playbook for Financial Success

AKRON, Ohio -- "Escape the Paycheck-to-Paycheck Lifestyle" (ISBN: 978-1667832098), written by Larry Szeliga and published by MYOB Publishing, is a financial literacy book that offers a fresh new solution to an age-old problem. It's not a book about how to get rich fast or how to make a million dollars, but rather a book that recounts the author's road to financial health.

Despite the author being a successful C-Level Executive with a six-figure income and a history of managing multi-million-dollar companies through decades of profitable growth, his personal finances were a mess. In fact, they were so poor that they led to a divorce and eventually to Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. It was a wake-up call that made him take control of his life and his finances.

When Szeliga first realized he was in financial trouble, he, like many, turned to the Internet for guidance. He quickly learned that he was not alone. Statistics showed that 78 percent of working adult Americans barely have enough money to pay their bills each month; and 40 percent couldn't cover an unexpected $400 expense. Those stats really hit home.

The author took action and got back on track. When he told a friend how he turned his financial health around, that friend suggested he "write a book" to teach others how to achieve financial health and maintain it.

"Escape the Paycheck-to-Paycheck Lifestyle" focuses on action, not theory. It gives readers practical tools and templates to use in making better financial decisions. It teaches readers how mindset and perseverance can impact financial well-being. It provides step-by-step instructions on how to collect and analyze information needed to make good money management decisions and puts readers in control. It shows them how to make their income go up and their expenses go down.

Readers will learn what to do, how to do it, and understand why they're doing it. They'll apply fictious examples in the book to their own personal circumstances for a successful financial playbook that they can reference for years to come.

"I firmly believe that your life is your business, and you are the boss," Szeliga says. "People are the source of enormous, untapped potential and my goal is to help them unlock that potential."

Son Of Canada’s Youngest Master Mariner Shares His Father’s Thrilling Adventures in Debut Novel

CARBONEAR, Newfoundland -- The life and adventures of one of Canada's unknown heroes is brought to life in Philip Earle's debut novel, "I'll Go the Length of Meself: The Story of Newfoundland's Daring Rascal, Captain Guy Earle, North America's Youngest Master Mariner" (ISBN: 978-0228869597).

As a boy sailing the North Atlantic on his father's schooners, Captain Guy Earle became a brilliant navigator and coastal captain at 16, and then, after falsifying his age by three years to successfully write the exam, he became a master mariner at 18 - the youngest registered master mariner in history. Retold by his son, Philip Earle, the novel explores Captain Guy's daring adventures, his seafaring life, and touches on the lives the dear Captain helped in his decades on the water.

"Many people who knew my father asked me to write Guy's story. But my main motivation was because I found my father to be the most incredible man I have ever known," says author Philip Earle when asked why he wrote the book. "When I was a boy, I thought everybody's father must be like Superman, but the longer I have lived, it is obvious to me that no one was like Skipper Guy."

Released in March 2022, "I'll Go the Length of Meself" is already receiving rave reviews. IndieReader celebrates the novel as "not only a touching tribute to Skipper Guy Earle, but also a warm, nostalgic look back at an entire culture and its character and values," with Kirkus Reviews describing it as "an intriguing account of a Newfoundland mariner's impressive life."

PHILIP EARLE hopes to showcase his father's legacy as a great mariner, businessman, humanitarian and exhibitionist, along with many other attributes. "There will never be another Guy Earle, there couldn't be. This is his story, and I'm proud to share it."

Author Brings Light Post-Pandemic and Beyond

DENVER, Colo. -- Entrepreneur and author Mags Lybolt is re-launching her motivational book, "You Got This" (ISBN: 979-8839152816) in order to inspire readers to change their personal programming. The book, which is made up of 44 blessings, contains two parts in each section: the first part says who you are and blesses you with good things while the second part is meant for you to speak the good things into existence as if they're already happening.

"Reading and thinking good thoughts right before bed allows your mind to think good thoughts all night long," says Lybolt, who emigrated from Europe at the age of five and received her business degree from the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University and her MBA at Purdue University.

"You Got This" was born from Lybolt's passion for helping people become successful in all aspects of life, be the best versions of themselves, achieve their dreams and receive direction, love, motivation, inspiration and meaning.

"It will only take you a minute to read a section morning and night," Lybolt says. "Research shows that it takes 40 days on average to retrain any part of your body and that includes your thoughts, brain and behavior," she says. "It takes at least 21 days to break a habit and 90 days to make it a permanent lifestyle change. Following 'You Got This' will train your brain to be on your side-to lift you up and not talk down to you."

Lybolt adds, "I wrote 'You Got This' to inspire people to not only be the best they can be but also to motivate them on a daily basis. Too many times, especially in today's day and age, others tend to put us down. I want to do the opposite for people. I want them to hear the truth about themselves and push them to continue on a path to greatness."

"You Got This" is available in ebook, paperback and audio form on Amazon at:

Local Book Stores in Oklahoma Welcome Seven-Year-Old L.A. Author for Book Reading and Signing

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. -- Two Oklahoma City bookstores are hosting Los Angeles based child author Sammy Wallace. His debut book, "I Slept in My Bed Last Night" (ISBN 979-8985784404), will be read by Sammy at Belle Books Boutique & More (11 a.m. - 1 p.m.), and Full Circle Bookstore (2:30 p.m. reading and 3 p.m. signing), both on Saturday, July 16, 2022.

Sammy developed the premise of the book (when he was five years old) at the onset of COVID-19 amidst lockdowns across California. With school closures, Sammy stayed busy by exercising his imagination and composing stories with his grandmother, Dr. Gwendolyn Mukes, an educator of more than 50 years.

Dr. Mukes transcribed the book for him and felt it was important to help Sammy find his literary voice while maintaining a sense of wonder and imagination. "When we started on this project almost two years ago, our country was in a turbulent time. With the onset of COVID-19 and the spotlight on racial disparages, we really wanted Sammy to just create stories that were fun and lighthearted."

Originally from Oklahoma City, Sammy is excited he returned for the summer while working on his second book. "I love when we come to Oklahoma City. It's so much fun to spend time with my family," said Sammy. "I'm also excited to meet other kids at the book readings." He wants to encourage other kids to write books and hopes to serve as an inspiration.

"Kids make great authors because we know what other kids like," said Sammy. "I think more kids should write books...they just need to be encouraged and told that it's possible."

The book is a comical story about a boy who finally decides to sleep in his bed. While fast asleep, a mysterious monster wakes him up from his dream. Confused as to exactly what the monster is and what the monster wants, the brave boy contemplates a series of possibilities as he tries to unlock the mystery. Early reviews call the book "funny, engaging and delightful."

It is currently available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble (online), and a few select stores. Locally, the book can be found at Belle Books Boutique & More and Full Circle Bookstore.

"I don't know if I will be a writer when I grow up... I want to be a lot of things," said Sammy. "For now, I am having fun and learning a lot. I am helping with the art for the next book and am excited about that!"
