How to Share a Story with Every Newspaper

Michael Reynolds Daily Star

If you would like to raise awareness about a cause, or sell a story to more than one publication, Talk to the Press can help you share a story with every newspaper in the UK.

This week Talk to the Press helped the father of 24-year-old who died a horrific, slow death after taking Raspberry Ketone diet pills bought online raise awareness through the press. Diet pills killed my daughter and should come with an age restriction’ – says Michael Reynolds, from Edinburgh.

Michael Reynolds HeraldA grieving father has spoken of the devastation he suffered after finding his beloved 24-year-old daughter dead after taking diet pills she bought on the internet.

Michael Reynolds, from Edinburgh, found his daughter, Cara, 24, unresponsive on her bedroom floor with an empty bottle of 90 Raspberry Ketone diet pills by her side. These ‘natural’ pills have been heavily promoted as safe, quick-fix miracle pills with a number of celebs such as Kim Kardashian endorsing them. But Cara was rushed to hospital after she deliberately overdosed on them.

Heartbreakingly, she died after 44 attempts to resuscitate her with a defibrillator – a death her father says could have been prevented had these unregulated been so readily accessible to youngsters. British Medical Journal reports state Cara died from a heart attack caused by the fatal levels of caffeine in the Raspberry Ketones she took.

Although she was found with an empty bottle of 90 pills, doctors aren’t sure how many she took. They did however find 1800mg of ketones and 1800mg of caffeine in her body. Her parents were horrified to learn she had overdosed on the pills after an argument with her boyfriend. The pills, which carry no age restriction and can be bought online and over-the-counter, were taken earlier in the evening before Cara started vomiting and fitting in front of her mother.

Michael Reynolds Daily StarSince Cara’s death, dedicated dad Michael has been campaigning to get Raspberry Ketones off the shelves. He says restrictions need to be in place to stop this happening to others and is calling for the government and FDA to take action. Although he has written to online suppliers demanding the pills are removed from their website, he has only had a brief reply saying they will refer his complaint to the right department.

He says: “These pills are dangerous when in the wrong hands. There should be age restrictions imposed on the purchase of diet pills and so called safe weight loss pills alike. These pills are not herbal or harmless like most people think. They are often targeted at insecure, vulnerable young women who already have issues with their physical appearance.”

Michael Reynolds Scotsman“In a moment of madness, they can be easily abused with devastating effects, like Cara. My daughter died because these pills are packed full of caffeine. As her post mortem revealed, it was the fatal levels of caffeine in the pills that lead to her death. These are not just ‘slimming supplements’ and people need to be made aware that these pills can kill.”

To get maximum coverage for Michael’s cause, we put Cara’s story on the news wires and it got picked up my most of the major national papers online and in print. Cara’s story will soon be appearing in the women’s weeklies, as Michael continues to campaign for more restrictions on herbal diet pills.

Unusual Relationship Story…

Emma Horne Sun Woman page 1

Are you in an eyebrow raising relationship? Do you have an unusual relationship story? TTTP has recently shared Emma Horne’s incredible story, about being in love with a man on death row, with the national press.

When Emma Horne contacted us with her story we knew the papers and magazines would love an interview with her. The 34-year-old support worker told us how she fell in love with a convicted murderer, Brandon Lacy, 35, facing the death sentence in Arkansas, USA.

The pair met online in 2012 and after one years writing to each other, they fell head over heels in love. Lacy confessed to aggravated burglary and the murder of Randall Walker in 2007 after stabbing him, slitting his throat and setting fire to his mobile home.

Benton County Circuit Court sentenced him to death and he is currently awaiting lethal injection at Arkansas Department of Corrections. Despite his confession to the awful crime, Emma believes he is innocent and has helped him with an appeal. Lacy later told Emma he was innocent and that he had confessed while drunk and wasn’t given proper legal aid and Emma is now helping him fight for his freedom.

Although they have never met, Emma, a mother to two boys, 12 and 14, plans to fly out to see him early next year. Emma chose not to go to a UK dating site because she wasn’t looking for love. After completing a law course and watching a TV documentary about death row inmates, she took a keen interest in the subject and decided to speak to a prisoner. She said: “His profile said he had studies psychology and I was really interested in that, he seemed like the most sensible man on the website.”

Emma Horne Sun Woman page 2“I like to give everyone a fair chance and I really believe he is innocent. I know some people might think I’m mad or deluded, but I really trust him. Whether he gets his sentence lifted or not, I will stick by him. Some of my friends are ok with it but others think I’m deluded. They often try to warn me that prisoners on death row use women on the outside, but I know Brandon is different.”

“He may be locked up 23 hours a day on his own, but he puts his time to good use and is always reading and learning. I know he’s writing to at least eight other women and it does worry me, but deep down I know he loves me and can be trusted. Being with someone who lives in the UK just wouldn’t work for me. I’m really busy with work and my kids and my relationship with Brandon is really convenient.”

Since meeting Lacy, Emma has helped him secure an appeal hearing which they will find out the results of in 30 days.

Feature editor Paisley placed Emma’s story with The Sun and her story will be appearing in Bella magazine shortly.
