Award Winning Author V. Lakshman on Your Book Your Brand Your Business

Enjoy science fiction and fantasy books? Don’t miss the next live broadcast of Your Book Your Brand Your Business on Monday, November 5 at 5 PM Eastern.

Award winning author V. Lakshman joins Daria Anne to discuss his acclaimed Mythborn series. The recipient of multiple awards, including 1st in Category for Science Fiction for the Cygnus Awards (2014) and the Kindle Book Review’s Best Kindle Awards (Semi-Finalist in 2014), this multi-talented author grew up in Bangkok, Thailand, where he first discovered his love of the martial arts, mythological heroes, and exotic lands, all of which influenced the development of characters and the world in his debut fantasy series, Mythborn – Fate of the Sovereign

When he was nine, his father took him to a martial arts exhibition, and his life was changed forever. He spent the next forty years mastering the arts of hand-to-hand, grappling, and weapons combat. His dedication to the martial arts and thousands of combat hours fighting opponents across three continents helped shape the authenticity of the martial philosophy and realistic fighting found throughout the Mythborn series.

As a young man, V. also became fascinated with popular role-playing games such as, Dungeons & Dragons, RuneQuest, Traveller and Champions. Much of his high school and college time was spent playing games with friends and dreaming up new worlds within which to adventure. His mind was filled with forgotten worlds, mythical creatures, and dreaming of ages where adventure awaited those daring enough to try.

In 1982, V. joined Bethesda Softworks as an Executive Producer and Lead Designer, with a vision to create a new and exciting digital role-playing game system. This resulted in the creation of, The Elder Scrolls franchise, re-envisioning the fantasy role playing genre and redefining its reach and popularity. The Elder Scrolls and its subsequent iterations like Skyrim, quickly became and remains the world’s definitive role-playing games, enjoyed by hundreds of millions of fans.

Over the next few decades VJ pursued his interest in video game design and is responsible for over eighty-five well known digital entertainment properties, which have garnered over $1B in lifetime sales.

These rich and immersive life experiences led to his conception and authorship of a rich and exciting new fantasy series known as Mythborn, a world where dreams become reality. While completing the Mythborn saga, VJ is working diligently on the design for an ground-breaking new interactive video game, a television pilot, and a graphic novel, all to complement the world of Mythborn and the characters within.

His educational experience includes graduation from George Washington University and from the Harvard Business School’s elite General Manager Program.  His martial arts experience includes extensive training in karate, close combat grappling, kendo, a type of traditional Japanese swordsmanship.

Mythborn Media is a division of Dawn’s Light Media and is in negotiations for a Motion Picture Film Series. Production is to begin later this year with release sometime in 2019.

Daria Anne is thrilled to be back on the air after an unexpected hiatus with such an exceptional guest! Please tune in at 5 PM Eastern on Monday, November 5 for an entertaining and informative interview with V. Lakshman.

Michael Cohen, Founder of Center for Brain in Jupiter Florida on Your Book Your Brand Your Business

Do you live with debilitating conditions like anxiety, depression, migraines, ADHD, or insomnia? Seeking an edge on your professional performance to help you achieve your business goals or earn a promotion?

Whether you’re looking for relief from symptoms that impact daily life, or simply want to optimize your skills and talents for greater success, neurofeedback can help. Please join me on Monday, August 20 at 5 PM Eastern when I welcome forthcoming author and President and Director of Neurotechnology for the Center For Brain, Michael Cohen:

Michael Cohen is Director of Neurotechnology and President of The Center for Brain Training. He has specialized in Applied Psychophysiology and EEG Biofeedback since 1996.

As Director of Education for EEG Spectrum, one of the main training organizations in the field, Mike organized and taught courses around the world to psychologists, therapists, and MD’s on the use of neurofeedback. He has helped organize and teach courses introducing neurofeedback to psychiatrists at the annual American Psychiatric Association. He has also taught neurofeedback at many of the annual industry conferences.

Mike has served on the Board of Directors for two of the largest professional organizations in the field of neurofeedback. He has produced over 36 monthly audio CD interviews with top industry leaders, as well as with professionals from other related fields. These professionals share their experience and expertise in using neurofeedback with PTSD, depression, ADD, autism, etc. Called the Phone Forum, the CDs are distributed around the world to neurofeedback professionals. It continues to be a popular series for new and experienced clinicians.

Over the years, Mike has used neurofeedback to help thousands of individuals. Additionally, he’s assisted more than 1500 health professionals in learning and mastering neurofeedback. As Director of Education for EEG Spectrum International from 2002 through 2005, he helped create and teach an introductory course that has been described as setting the standard for the field. He continues to teach advanced neurofeedback courses to doctors, psychologists, and therapists.

In addition, Mike provides clinical consulting services to healthcare professionals. This involves reviewing clinical cases with them and providing guidance in using neurofeedback with specific patients.

What was Michael’s motivation for founding the Center For Brain in 2006?

In 1995, his father underwent neurofeedback in a desperate attempt to get a handle on years-long, severe depression after medications and even electroconvulsive (shock) therapy failed to bring him out of unrelenting despair. After a short course of neurofeedback, Mike’s father’s personality returned, and his mood improved to the extent that he re-joined the world.

This dramatic change in Mike’s father prompted Mike to co-found a neurofeedback center in Georgia.  He has become recognized as a leading expert in the field, teaching neurofeedback to physicians and healthcare professionals both in the United States and abroad.

In 2005, he and his wife Carolyn moved to Jupiter, Florida to be closer to Carolyn’s father in Boca Raton. The following year, he opened the Center for Brain Training in Jupiter.

Michael looks forward to releasing his book in the near future. During our interview he’ll offer a detailed explanation of neurofeedback and its many benefits. We’ll also take your questions from the live chat room and do our best to address them all.
