Diversity Celebrated in YA Fantasy Novel by Award-Winning Writer


HOLLYWOOD, Calif. - October 17, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

From the Producer of Star Trek: Renegades and Six Gun Savior comes a Fantasy Novel meant for all ages that includes a diverse cast of characters. Tales of Ravenore: The Iron Witch is the first book in the series that follows Threa, a teenage magic user that finds herself in an exotic land filled with kingdoms and monsters. The caveat is that lost all memory of her the life she led on the other side of the Stormveil. 

In an attempt to build a new life in Ravenore, Threa teams with the princes and princesses of the Five Realms to thwart an imminent attack by the evil forces of the Iron Witch. However, Threa's ties to the Iron Witch lie deeper than she could have imagined, and her dark magic threatens to pull her into an abyss she may never escape.

About the Novel:

Written by award-winning screenwriter, novelist, and comic book writer, Frank Zanca. What makes this world different than any other fantasy world in the genre is that the Five Reigns of Ravenore each represent a different culture. The five kingdoms are representative of the following civilizations and societies: Ancient Egypt, Feudal Japan, Medieval Europe, Ancient Greece, and Norse, giving the aesthetics of the world something extremely unique. The story focuses on the five princes and princesses, who are all teenagers, likening it to books like Harry Potter and Percy Jackson. However, it will give adults equal reading satisfaction with a thrilling, fast-paced story that takes these characters through an adventure that gives them all their unique arcs.

About the Creator: Frank Zanca is an award-winning writer and producer. He's written a half dozen novels, including the acclaimed biography Escape from Berlin: The Diane Jacobs Story and the Destiny Aurora series. The four-book series has since been made into a 150-page graphic novel, an RPG, and a tabletop board game. This will mark his first foray into the Fantasy genre.

Kickstarter: Tales of Ravenore: The Iron Witch will launch on Kickstarter by October 15, 2022, and will include signed copies, and downloadable content. A drawing for an exclusive artwork giveaway will be held for the first fifty pledges. Supporters will also be able to add Zanca's other works to their pledge. Items may be autographed by the author. Come out and support Tales of Ravenore on October 15th.

HealthTech Startup Healistic Raises £1M in Funding and Launches First-of-Its-Kind, UK-Based App to Fuel the ‘Open Healthcare’ Revolution

Healistic is building a first-of-its-kind healthcare super-app, connecting healthcare and insurance providers to end users via dynamic digital solutions. The HealthTech app's first offering provides medicine and personal care product home delivery, from medication and supplements to cosmetics and personal care - all in less than 45 minutes to the patient's doorstep.

Healistic, an innovative HealthTech mobile app and the first pharma-based speedy delivery service in the UK, announced £1M in pre-seed funding from leading international investors today. Powered by the belief that healthcare should be effortless and immediately available to everyone, Healistic is building an all-in-one universal healthcare platform, providing a seamless experience in an asset-light marketplace business model. From a user perspective, the app is already live for iOS and Android and offers thousands of healthcare products (incl. P-Meds and soon prescription medications), delivered conveniently to the customer's doorstep in under 45 minutes - an unparalleled user experience in the UK. No commute to the pharmacy, no queues, no risk of transmission, and no overheard intimate conversations when ordering at the counter.

Healistic has partnered with independent pharmacies across London, enabling them to access a digital channel and customer base they otherwise couldn't reach. Healistic uses riders on eco-friendly bikes to deliver within 45 minutes. Founded by Daniel Bulkin, a London-based serial HealthTech Entrepreneur and ex-Private Equity investor in the Technology & Healthcare space, Healistic aims to address unfulfilled demand as a category leader. From consumer research1, Bulkin found that customers are demanding a healthcare experience that is omni-channel, convenient, and fast, allowing them to understand and control their own healthcare management. 

Healistic is on a mission to become the go-to D2C HealthTech mobile app, offering an end-to-end digital patient home. This will take shape as a scalable marketplace model with SaaS tech solutions to connect pharmacies, insurers, and corporations with end users. The launch of Healistic translates into a £100bn+ market opportunity, with strong digitalisation and growth potential2.

The mobile app has initially launched in London. The plan is to expand into other cities across the UK this year. Healistic will also continue to build on its initial offering, with plans to implement speedy prescription delivery, tele-health consultations with GPs and nutritionists, and insurance claim management, as it moves towards a full-service digital healthcare app.

Daniel Bulkin, CEO of Healistic, said: "This funding round has allowed us to introduce a product to market that will serve the digital patient at a crucial time. Against a backdrop of increased uncertainty within the NHS, including strikes and supply chain issues, Healistic aims to alleviate these pressures by connecting patients to the appropriate healthcare solutions through a trusted, centralised system. We believe that immediate healthcare should be accessible to everyone. Healistic is building a category leader in the 'Open Healthcare' revolution, a parallel to the 'Open Banking' revolution, which began in the last decade." 

Speaking of the funding, Christian Hieronimi, Healistic Investor and serial HealthTech Entrepreneur, added: "The launch of Healistic signals a true step in the direction of a deeply integrated and interconnected digital patient journey. The platform empowers patients to become active managers of their health and creates a comprehensive system to take the treatment, prescription, and therapy process to the next level."

Kevin Heath, Healistic Advisor and ex-Boots Executive Board Director, said, "As a first-mover in the UK healthcare space, Healistic is providing a modern and convenient customer experience while helping partner pharmacies expand their radius and customer reach. Healistic's asset-light model will allow for quick expansion in terms of geography and service offering, which will be highly valuable for consumers and healthcare professionals."
