A Rant & A Cry

If you’re a regular listener to my live radio show, Author Assist on the Artist First Radio network, you know how the show works. Okay, sometimes I throw in a few surprises for my guest like making them sing, live on air and getting them to take part in a quiz, they knew nothing about.

Well, on the last show, Friday 8th April, I did two things I’ve never done before in the five years I’ve been on the air. I had a rant, and I cried. I’m not going to tell you what the rant was about or why I cried, you need to listen to the show and find out.
As well as those two monumental occurrences, we have awesome music from Lola Black and her hit single Hot Enough. Live readings from two of my flash fictions from my Collection, Heads & Tales, and my wonderful guest, Teri M Brown, who also does a reading for you.


So plenty of entertainment. You can listen to the archived show here.

Who is Jackie Bertolette?

I will tell who is is NOT. She not an editor of a magazine that talks about dieting and how to lose weight, advertising stick thin models and promoting how we all should dress and ignoring the real women and men out there. Ignoring diversity.

Jackie Bertolette is a women on a ‘Mission’. She has opened up a platform that allows a never before seen, designer a place to showcase their work, a makeup artist that has never had the opportunity to work with catwalk models. For models of all shapes, sizes, race and sexual orientation . Everyone is included. Diversity is a must for Jackie and her volunteer staff of Haute Ohio Magazine.


This magazine may centre around Ohio and the Mid-West. but it’s download and shipped world-wide. Sadly it hasn’t reached the shelves where the top editorial magazines sit.

But it really should.

Jackie is such an awesome person for what she doing, that other magazine editors and creative directors should sit up and take notice. Things have changed and Jackie is embracing this change with open arms.

I get the opportunity to chat to Jackie about Haute Ohio Magazines and all the small business she owns and is involved in.
This is a must watch interview.

Enjoy.
