Pear Tree March 2022

Maryanne Christiano-Mistretta, proprietor

“Just in a professional world, sometimes a phone call is more meaningful than a text.” — Kevin Harvick, race car driver.

Last week my husband and I bit the bullet and got a Smart Phone. SHHH!!!!! It’s not like we’re going to use it, it’s that we NEEDED it in order to get into the Billie Eilish concert, as paper tickets are becoming a thing of the past. But let’s not let reaching out via a phone call be a “thing of the past.” I’ve never been a fan of texting. Prior to this smart phone, I had another, several years ago–hated it, was glad to get rid of it. I truly don’t get the obsession with texting. And it’s not the way Pear Tree does business. We’ll always give good old fashioned service with a personal touch. A phone call or an email is a message delivered with care and class. Reach out and call Pear Tree today – 908-276-1514 for service that gives you a voice!

Pear Tree January 2022

Maryanne Christiano Mistretta and Sammy

“Nothing is important, so people, realizing that, should get on with their lives, go mad, take their clothes off, jump in the canal, jump into one of those supermarket trolleys, race around the supermarket and steal Mars bars and kiss kittens.” — Morrissey

I’m starting off the new year with a bang of a quote by Morrissey. This quote resonates with me because I am the one who races in a supermarket cart like a little kid and sings songs in the aisles. Who cares if no one smiles at you. Just enjoy — your soul is watching. And being fun like that gives off great vibes to attract more fun in your life.

Doing what you love for a living, adds to that. Here are the things I am available for:

  • BOOK EDITING (Completed manuscripts only)
  • SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS
  • EXTRA WORK (or small acting roles in commercials and indie films)
  • OVER 50 MODELING
  • EVENT HELP

Unfortunately, Pear Tree will no longer present to libraries unless there is a signed contract to be paid “day of.” Pear Tree Enterprises is not a collection agency, therefore checks must be presented “day of” or the program will not be. NO NEGOTIATIONS.

Pear Tree September 2021

 

Maryanne Christiano-Mistretta, Pear Tree proprietor

“The point of power is always in the present moment” — Louise Hay

Whether I’m writing or editing or doing a presentation or modeling or being a brand ambassador or extra in a film or celebrity handler, all the things I do add up to a very cool career. It’s kind of annoying when people tell me to “relax” or that I work too much, when none of these things really feel like work! (To be honest, the “work” is getting the gig, the rest is a breeze!)

Whatever you do, do it with passion and embrace the power of the present moment–on the weekends, vacations, or even down time. Being present means being alive!

WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?

Shoot me an email at: maryannechristiano@gmail.com

I’m available for ghost writing and memoir writing, blogging, editing, essays, and Facebook updates. And public speaking, as well as working events tables at trade shows such as Chiller and Comic Con. AND, back from what I did in 2009 — I’ve re-added “personal assistance.”

Rates are reasonable, and the first hour phone (or in-person) consultation is free to potential new clients. Every client who uses Pear Tree services will be featured in the newsletter (unless for whatever reason they don’t want to be in the newsletter, as privacy is respected).

WRITING/BOOKS/JOURNALISM

Currently working on my next book. Shh! It’s a secret!

Publications I’m currently writing for: Dental Products ShopperTrenton Journal, and Nutfield Publishing.

Pear Tree June 2021

Maryanne Christiano-Mistretta, over 50 modeling (Photo by David Esposito).

“Courage is like a muscle. We strengthen it by use.” — Ruth Gordon

Hey Gang! Two months ago I spoke about semi-retiring. I’m having a blast. Art classes are going great — AND I became a certified feline behaviorist, working towards an additional certification in feline stress psychology!

Pear Tree is still going strong, just on a part-time basis.

I am no longer ghost writing (only editing books that are completed), but I’m available for blogging and journalism. I’m also doing more modeling (yes, at 57!) and acting. There’s also public speaking via Zoom (see what I have to offer below), as well as publishing consulting.

While we are still in the pandemic here in the USA, we continue to be cautious. At Pear Tree, I’m happy to work with you via phone calls; or at your home wearing a mask and social distancing, even though the mask mandate will be lifted this weekend.

View the next section “What Can I Do For You?” to see what I can do for you and your business! Whether it’s blogging or writing or working on your book – I can help you get your not-boring life down on paper!

Contact Pear Tree today: maryannechristiano@gmail.com

Note: We can work remotely during COVID, via ZOOM or telephone. This has been working out great. Why not start a new journey from the comforts of your own home? Get that book written today!

WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?

I am no longer ghost writing, but I am available to edit copy that’s already written.

Shoot me an email at: maryannechristiano@gmail.com

I’m also available for blogging, editing, essays, and Facebook updates.

Rates are reasonable, and the first hour phone (or in-person) consultation is free to potential new clients. Every client who uses Pear Tree services will be featured in the newsletter (unless for whatever reason they don’t want to be in the newsletter, as privacy is respected).

WRITING

My current top client is Tilson PR (https://tilsonpr.com/). I love helping them out on a regular basis writing positive messages about entrepreneurship.

I’m also doing Facebook updates for Express Automotive (https://www.facebook.com/expressautometuchen). Stop by and give a “like” or a “love.” There’s great car tips, and even car-inspired songs to get you moving!

Pear Tree January 2020

Derick - ROAR

Welcome to the ROARING ’20s! 

“If you are not happy with something, you should change it. So I went to a lot of therapy, and finally, I am able to speak for myself. You are going to hear me roar.” — Katy Perry. 

With all I’ve accomplished creatively during 2019, I’m sad to see it go. Nevertheless, I am ready for the ROARING ’20s! God willing, it’s another decade to take my innovative ideas and bring them into fruition.

The decade ended on a high note when I gained Culture Sonar as a client. I’ll be writing music features for them beginning in January. One of my first interviews will be the incredible Brute Force!  It was exciting chatting with him on the phone for two hours. It’s super fun entering the next decade by going back to my roots as a music journalist.

Perhaps 2020 is speaking to you in a magical way? Maybe I can help write or edit your book? Or help with your blogging or Facebook entries. Let me know. Let’s rock this decade together!

Oh, and what’s up with that ferocious beast photo? That’s my late kitty, Derick. He was a real sweetheart of a cat and always had something to say. It’s three years since his passing, but of course he’s always in my heart. I’d like to dedicate the next 10 years to Derick, a time for all of us to ROAR!

WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?

Would you like to make your dreams come true too?

Pear Tree — August 2019

DSCF3928During a hot summer, ignite your creative passion by calling Pear Tree today! 

I just returned from a trip and am happy to be going on another one soon! Summer has been super; filled with love, friendships, sun, and music. Yet, there’s always time to help people write their books! Is book writing a passion of yours? If so, contact me for a free consult. Let’s work together and help you get your book published! If we start this summer, you may have your work published by Christmas!

Recently, Next Century Publishing, who published my first two books, “On the Guest List: Adventures of a Music Journalist” and “Love Cats” folded. That means both books are out of print. The good news is, I’m currently shopping “Love Cats” to publish a second edition! “Love Cats” has been a very hot item lately. The Amazon stats jacked up, and I’ve been getting phone calls, “WHERE CAN I GET THE BOOK?”

Unless you want to pay a high amount of money for it, hang tight, because I’m determined to get a second edition out. AND, as always, portions of proceeds will go to various animal groups. By the next edition of Pear Tree, I may have an answer!

WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?

Do you want to be a part of the Pear Tree High-Five Tribe and make your dreams come true?  Would you like to book a program, or get help writing your book (or blog or Facebook page)? Become part of the Pear Tree journey! Call 908-276-1514 during business hours of noon to 6 p.m.; or email maryannechristiano@gmail.com anytime!
