Book 1 - Prelude to a Wedding
Book 2 - Wedding Party
Book 3 - Grady's Wedding
Book 4 - The Runaway Bride
Book 5 - The Christmas Princess
Book 6 - The Surprise Princess
Book 7 - The Forgotten Prince

In the romantic comedy Prelude to a Wedding, charming Paul Monroe has the Peter Pan thing down pat. As an antique toy appraiser, even his work involves play. Which is fine, unless your job is to keep his Chicago business running smoothly and all that charm - and sexiness - is aimed at you.

Organization and reliability are Bette Wharton's hallmarks. She handles the toughest clients with aplomb, until Paul provides a challenge that goes way beyond the office. She has a plan and a timetable and office romance -- especially with this man who even makes the workplace fun -- is definitely not part of it. How can she let herself fall for Mr. Live-for-the-Moment if all he offers is Love-for-the-Moment?

... Paul is the first of the grooms to watch his bride walk down the aisle toward him, but he won't be the last! Find their stories in WEDDING PARTY and GRADY'S WEDDING ... and the newest release, THE FORGOTTEN PRINCE, a new sequel to the Wedding Series.

Synopsis

When the government of their country hates their ideas enough to kill them, how will they survive?
Anna suffered the loss of her family due to persecution in Germany, and moved to Amsterdam, unaware that this Dutch city is a hornet’s nest of Anabaptist heretics. She has stepped right into it, plunging ever deeper into the very trouble she sought to avoid.  In 1531, fourteen years after Martin Luther penned his famous 95 theses, Europe is still seething and in turmoil. The powerful state attacks anyone who won't submit to their decrees, but even they cannot stop the storm from raging. Not when the nation is waging war against them for corruption and suppression.More despised even than the warring Protestants are the Anabaptists, who somehow seem threatening to the ruling powers. The state-church can’t tolerate these people, who claim God reveals His truth to them, and they intend to obey Him before men. They also refuse to swear the oath or bear arms, further infuriating the authorities.But worst of all, and what brings persecution crashing down upon the Anabaptists’ heads, is their refusal to baptize their infants. When Anna finds out her friends, Maeyken and Adriaen, have secretly joined this cult, she is unwillingly swept along with them in the upheaval. She knows she must either report her friends and their new baby or risk execution herself.Why do the Anabaptists cling to their faith, even unto death? Will she ever understand them, or will she keep running to avoid finding the answer?A perfect read for anyone who loves a suspenseful and fast-paced story, with the added bonus of learning about little known, but intriguing facts of history.

Synopsis

Gratitude for Happiness: How to exercise your gratitude muscles

This book is written to be used at any stage of your gratitude journey.
Our gratitude muscles are like any muscle in that if they haven’t been used for a while they may need warming up.
This book provides you a process to help you flex those muscles and build a gratitude habit of building on your happiness.
The issue that most of us have is that we focus more on what we haven’t got than what we have got. In a difficult financial climate, it can seem that we are struggling and have little to be grateful for.
The sixty sections and over four hundred and ninety genuine gratitude statements provided here cover a wide spectrum of your life, including finance, relationships, and even basic shelter.
In order to obtain the most benefits from Gratitude, you should express emotions for the things that you are grateful for.
Just reading a book isn’t going to provide you the benefits you seek so this book provides you an exercise at the end of each section.
Whether prefer to progress steadily or are a binge reading type of person, this book suggests three optional timeframes to develop your habit.
It is widely accepted that gratitude is one of the secret sauces that successful people use regularly for their happiness.
Read this book, work through the exercises, express your emotions for even the smallest gratitude’s and you’ll be amazed by the results.

View full details

Synopsis

This is the book that proves that Birmingham is not just the crucible of the Industrial Revolution, but the cradle of civilisation. From the team behind hit Birmingham miscellany, Paradise Circus, comes the definitive guide to the 101 things that made the world what it is today - and all of them were made in Birmingham. Read how Birmingham gave the world the wonders of tennis, nuclear war, the Beatles, 'that smell of eggs' and many more… 97 more. “101 Things Birmingham Gave The World, is not a Birmingham of the memory. It is a living breathing thing, wrestling with the city’s contradictions, press-ganging the typically arch and understated humour of the Brummie, and an army of little-known facts, both trivial and monumental, into reshaping its confusing reputation.” Stewart Lee

Book cover image for Become a Better You: Stop dieting, start living
View full details

Synopsis

If you want to stop bouncing around from one diet to another, make this the last time you ever have to lose weight, regain your confidence, finally feel comfortable in your clothes and transform your life inside and out…then you want to read this book.

And here’s why - traditional approaches to weight loss and improving your health simply don’t work. They didn’t work for me, and they haven’t worked for you, otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this right now. 

The truth is you can get the health and body of your dreams, without giving up all your favourite foods, starving yourself or spending everyday in the gym, and I’m not just going to show you how, I’m going to guide you every step of the way.

What it comes down to is balance, looking at your lifestyle on the whole, and not looking for another one size fits all quick fix.

I really wanted to do something different with this book, that actually works and produces sustainable results, combining scientific research with the help, guidance and support I wish I had back when I was struggling on my own.

That’s why everything in this book can be tailored around you, from your goals to the changes you want to make, fitting around your routine, your commitments and what you truly want in life.

Just a few of the things we will be covering are:
- How to put together a balanced diet, free from restriction, creating healthy meals you love, determining portion sizes without counting calories and how to eat to achieve your weight loss goals.
- Ways to develop healthier habits, manage stress, change your mindset, overcome limiting beliefs and finally reach your true potential.
- Learning to listen to your body, as you start to make more informed choices in all areas of your life, stop acting on impulse and break the control cravings and willpower have over you.
- Becoming active in a way you actually enjoy, that you look forward to and fits into your routine.
- Finding ways to rest, relax and unwind, regardless of how busy you are.
- Getting round the barrier of time, eating healthy on a budget and more.

All of this added together will create a momentum shift in all areas of your life, and there are systems in check to keep you accountable and consistent.

Not only will you lose weight, but you will also boost your energy, improve your mood, focus, sleep and general outlook on life, all while becoming a healthier, happier you.

No it won’t happen overnight, but just think, in 10 weeks you could completely transform your life, finally achieving what you’ve spent years dreaming about, showing you that change is possible and that you are the one in control of your own destiny.

Just remember, this is not a diet, it’s a change in lifestyle, that will help you not only look, but also feel better than you ever have before.

So if you are serious about making this the last time you ever have to lose weight, then the time to take action is now!

SPECIAL BONUS FOR READERS!

As a thank you for buying this book, I’m offering all readers a transformation call directly with me, to help you map out and get clarity on your own journey.

View full details

Synopsis

A humorous, animal detective story for 7-12 year-olds.

When Mr Woodland Mouse mysteriously disappears, Constable Mole is quick to enlist the help of Leon Chameleon, Private Investigator, whose expertise enabled the Pigeon Valley Police to solve the case of the missing canary eggs.

After organising a search, Leon realises that there is only one creature in the valley who can spring the captured mouse from his prison. But just when he thinks Mr Woodland Mouse is safely on his way home, the plan goes horribly wrong..."

All the animal details of food, habits, and lifestyle are true to nature (apart from Constable Mole’s sunglasses!) and the animals solve the crimes using their own natural abilities. Children will absorb much knowledge of the small creatures of Africa without being aware of it.

A section of interesting facts has been added to this second detective story in the Leon Chameleon PI series. It provides valuable and little-known information on chameleons, moles and other creatures featured in the story.

View full details

Synopsis

He sees what she's long hidden ... especially from herself.

Meet Josh Kincannon, high school principal, single father of three, and thus, as he reminds himself ruefully, essentially celibate back into misty memory and forward into the foreseeable future.

After three months of trying to work with Vanessa Irish via phone and e-mails on a project to help tiny Drago, Illinois, Josh believes he has an accurate picture of Zeke-Tech's CFO:

Conscientious? Oh, yeah.
Intelligent? Absolutely.
Agreeable? Not so much.

Then he catches sight of her wild, vibrant robe and begins to wonder what other elements might form a portrait of Vanessa Irish. Every time she goes into her I'm-so-boring-I-disappear-against-white-walls act, he remembers that vibrant, wild fabric hanging on the corner of a door and he gets curious.

And the more curious he becomes, the more he discovers about her that has him feeling things a whole lot hotter than curiosity. Things that shake up life as single parent to his three kids, scrape against his career as high school principal and -- oh, yes -- definitely threaten his stretch of celibacy.

Numbers, that's where Vanessa is comfortable. Not all this interaction with people that she's been pitched into. Especially interacting with Josh Kincannon. Why does he insist on drawing her into his small town, his life, his children? And the biggest question -- what kind of man is this, who not only looks at her, but SEES her, when that's the last thing she wants?

... or is it?

Synopsis

A bullied herd boy becomes a hero.

'The big day has arrived and Bheki’s house is flooded with electric light for the first time. He remembers the time, many years before, when his father gave him a light that really did seem to be magic. The torch brought him many friends and a new status in the kraal, until its beam began to fade. Bheki’s journey to bring power back to the magic light tested him to the limit but ended in magic of a different kind. It gave him a belief in himself.'

At the end of the story, Bheki explains how batteries work and how electricity is generated and brought into homes across the world.

If you watched Nelson Mandela's funeral service at Qunu you will recognise the similar rural setting in the story. (Nelson Mandela was also a herd boy)

Bheki and the Magic Light was first published by Penguin Books SA.

This book lays out a full process, providing exercises and information encompassing:Identifying what you want from a writing coach.Determining what time and money you can commit to a coach.Matching your learning styles with a potential coach.Leading you by the hand throughout the research process.Culminating in you actually employing a coach.This is A book full of actions and exercises, not just passive reading!

Still unsure if you need a coach?

A 2014 survey of over 9000 current and aspiring authors produced the following results:Of the 9000 respondents approximately 58% had actually completed a manuscript. 6000 of the 9000 respondents were only "aspiring" authors and of them only 36.7% had completed a manuscript.Only 23% of all the survey respondents (who had completed their manuscript) had actually published their first book.If we look at those figures we can see that with a roughly 60% chance of getting to the stage of completing a manuscript you then have less than a one in four chance of continuing and  publishing it.

Although there may be various reasons why other writers don’t publish their books, surely you want to have the best chance to beat those odds?
Read this book to determine if you want a writing coach, how a coach can help you and how to find one that suits your needs.

Synopsis

Have you ever read or tried to read Till We Have Faces: A Myth Retold and wondered what it was all about?

Not every Lewis reader is a Lewis scholar. Most pick up one of his stories or essays out of curiosity, not with academic intent nor with the hope of reading all of his works.

After teaching this novel for a decade, I determined to write a guide that would help any reader fully appreciate C.S. Lewis’s final, and favorite, work of fiction.

In Till We Have Faces, Lewis paints an unexpected picture of redemption. As Orual relates her selective memoir, she finds that her questions about the gods fall away. While Lewis’s retelling brings an unusual completion to the original Greek myth of Cupid and Psyche, this companion is a blend of summary and commentary that brings greater understanding of the characters, symbolism, and implied Christian themes outside of a classroom discussion.

Book cover image for The Adventures of Doctor X in China: Five years teaching ESL in a strange land
View full details

Synopsis

In his late fifties Doctor X realised that he was in the ‘death zone,’ and didn’t want to go out feet up, sitting in front of the TV in the UK – he wanted to continue to live a life. Journey with him on his five-year love and hate affair with China, seeking out a new life, and enjoying strange encounters - boldly going where no English as a Second Language (ESL) teacher has gone before.

Doctor X gives us his unexpurgated insight into an ESL teacher’s life in China. What it’s really like in the high schools of China. He outs the unprofessional, and drunken behaviour of the riff raff that wash up professing to be teachers but are really professional bar flies. He also provides crucial hints, and tips for the new teacher thinking about giving China a go.

He writes frankly about his relationship with some of the women that were just ships that passed in the night. From Little Yellow, and the ladyboys of Bangkok to meeting E - his eventual life partner. This erotilogue will show you a China hidden from the tourist – the bathhouses, and the pink curtained massage parlours. Doctor X does not regret one moment of it - it has been an experience worth living – one moment close to death, the next in the arms of random women.

And to think Doctor X could be back home in Britain stacking shelves in Tesco.

Synopsis

Welcome to a word usage book with attitude. (Some say humor, too, but nearly everyone agrees on attitude.)



WORD WATCH is a compilation of columns written over several years for Update, the newsletter of the Washington (D.C.) Romance Writers, and Novel Ideas, the newsletter of the Virginia Romance Writers.



It stemmed from a conversation with a fellow author, who suggested – none too gently – that Word Watch quit griping about words being misused by writers and do something about it.



So, here it is: An attempt to share a lifetime of word usage scrutiny and a journalistic career of picky editing.



HOW TO USE WORD WATCH

Book cover image for The Evolution of the Picts: A study of the development of the ancient inhabitants of Scotland, and their legendary status
View full details

Synopsis

This book, also known as the evolution of the Pictish Legend, follows on from the "History of the Scots, Picts and Britons", but has been written, and can be read, independently of the previous work. It has more substantial research and provides documented contemporary proof of the location of the Picts, Scots and Britons in the British Isles. There is solid evidence placing Bede's "Fort of the Britons" in Cumbria around the Solway at a place today known as Maryport, and not as believed Dumbarton. It shows that the Scots from Ireland settled the South West of Scotland from the Solway to the Clyde region in the 6th century BC - 1st century AD period and highlights that the Picts themselves were not a heterogeneous population. It then establishes whether the Picts were indigenous or Celtic, and the full list of tribes that belonged to the Verturiones, The Dicalydones and The Scots. It also looks at the way the legend of the Picts has evolved from their "disappearance" around the end of the 9th century, through the medieval period and eventually into the 19th and 20th Century.

View full details

Synopsis

This is an in-depth study of the origins of the Scots, the Picts, the Britons (and even some Anglo-Saxon history) in the Dark Age period. It is a little bit controversial, but I think it is a reasonable assessment. Even if you don't accept the conclusions, hopefully you will appreciate the work that has gone into it, and the presentation of the evidence from their own legends and testimonies - you are not likely to find many of them in other history books. At the very least I hope it will be a starting point for many people to revisit the past

Book cover image for Don't Write Your MEmoir without ME!: A motivational workbook/guide for memoir writers
View full details

Synopsis

An easy to read and motivational workbook/gulde to writing your memoir. Anything but a textbook, you'll come away believing, as the author's workshop participants have, that you too can a memoir folks will want to read. Written by Viga Boland, the author of 4 memoirs, including the Gold Medal winning, "No Tears for my Father", this book is cover to cover good advice and fun reading.



When Viga Boland, the author of 4 memoirs, was asked by participants to write a "how-to" book on writing memoir, the one thing she didn't want to do is write another textbook style guide. She decided the only way to give her followers what they wanted, was to tell them how she wrote her memoirs by "writing with abandonment" which she believes is the essence of putting "ME" ie. yourself into your memoir. In a voice that her workshop attendees will recognize as the one she uses in her sessions, she wrote "Don't Write Your MEmoir without ME!" to inspire and motivate with humor and an "in your face" style. The result is an easy-to-read and very motivating workbook that will have readers believing that they too can write a memoir.





Completing this book is a selection of articles by other noted teachers of memoir writing along with stories Viga featured in her printed magazine and on her online site for memoir writers, Memoirabilia. She has also included her reviews of memorable memoirs that she thinks you'll want to read. After all, "if you want to write memoir, you need to read memoir" she says. According to Viga Boland, "Your memoir is a selfie in Words" and this book will show you how to take the best selfie.





What are reviewers saying about "Don't Write Your MEmoir without ME!" ?



"Huge kudos to Viga for getting down her own four memoirs and for becoming of champion of getting others to do so. I love the title: Me in Memoir is at the heart of what a memoir should be and her book's message. “A selfie in words” is sheer genius. Writing with abandon is a great idea and this writer clearly does it well. I read the first few pages and couldn’t wait to read the rest. The whole book impressed me. I would recommend this book to anyone thinking about writing a memoir – especially those being pushed by others to do so because of their exceptional stories. It’s the meaning behind a life story that is important, and so if you have a life that you should share you should only be encouraged to write your memoir. This book just helps you find the words to tell it and Viga is proof it works." Dr. Dawn Field, PhD and author



"I love the way the whole thing reads and the information it contains. Your goal was to write and easy-to-read, motivational manual on memoir writing, and without doubt, you have done that. I can truly hear your voice and there were in which I laughed out loud. I loved that you stopped the book several times for a writing exercise for the reader. Viga, you have another winner here." Heather Lamb, writer and live workshop attendee.
