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.

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.

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.

Book cover image for Complete Self-publishing Guide
View full details

Synopsis

Self-publishing is a complicated process.
 
Much of the information found on the web is inaccurate or incorrect.
 
The goal of self-publishing a book is to produce a quality book package to surround your content. Despite what you read on the internet, self-publishing isn’t easy.
This set of books de-mystifies the process. Besides describing a process to publish your book, you’ll learn how to market it and how to deal with the business side of being an author.
 
There is a lot involved in the self-publishing process and it is quite easy to self-publish a book the wrong way.
This boxed set of ebooks explains the self-publishing process and much more.
There are four ebooks in the set:
* Self-publishing a Book: describes a process to put together a quality book package prior publishing the book.
* Marketing Plans for Self-published Books: covers basic book marketing strategy and tactics. It contains a set of ready-to-use marketing plans to be implemented at once.
* Manage Your Self-publishing Project: Uses a project management approach to graphically illustrate the dual, simultaneous processes of publishing and marketing your book.
* Business Basics for Authors: provides an understanding of the business issues facing new authors.
 
The boxed set provides the new author with a solid grounding in the self-publishing process and associated issues.
Yet another potential problem is this. The internet swarms with scam artists searching for new authors who may not have a complete understanding of the ins-and-outs of publishing and marketing. The scammers are after the author’s money and use slick websites to mislead the author. The more the new author knows about publishing and marketing, the less likely he is to fall prey to these scam artists. The Complete Self-publishing Guide arms new authors with the information to fend off these scam artists.

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.

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.

WHAT IS STOPPING YOU BEING A SUCCESSFUL PUBLISHED WRITER?

Are you overwhelmed and don’t even know where to start?
Perhaps you haven’t even written a word and need help converting your life's vision into text?Is a lack of motivation and accountability holding you back?Perhaps you have written the content but don’t know what to do next?Maybe you have already self-published something that isn’t selling?A successful writing Coach can help you to succeed in your publishing career!

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.

Book cover image for A Reading Companion: Till We Have Faces: An Any Day Companion for an Everyday Reader
View full details

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.

[About the Author]]

Christine Norvell is an author, speaker, and longtime educator. She graduated from Faulkner University with a Masters in Humanities and teaches high school literature and humanities at a classical Christian school. As a speaker, Christine brings an appreciation for biblical and classical literary themes, helping audiences look deeper into writings and deeper into their hearts.

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.

Book cover image for Word Watch: A Writer's Guide to the Slippery, Sneaky and Otherwise Tricky
View full details

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 Destination Enlightenment with In-Depth Coverage: of synchronicity, kundalini, Shakti, enlightenment, meditation, third-eye, chakras, awaken
View full details

Synopsis

Destination Enlightenment with In-Depth Coverage goes well beyond where similar books venture, including Synchronicity, Kundalini, Shakti, Enlightenment, Meditation, Third-eye, Chakras, Awakenings, Persistence, Spiritual, Prana, Pranayama and much more, with plenty of real world explanations and how-to guidance to avoid the potential pitfalls.

Shakti is the fuel that powers your awakenings and spiritual growth. Your subtle body is loaded with Shakti in various forms which are burned as energy. You’re Kundalini and Chakras ignite it like an engine. All of which is covered extensively.

Here are some of the cultural terms including Hindu Shakti, Prana, Apana and Yyana, Chinese Chi (Qi), Polynesian Mana, Vietnamese Khi, Korean Gi, Japanese Ki, subtle energy and woo energy, Hebrew koach-ha-guf, Greek Bios, English Aether, Cosmic Energy, Kundalini Energy, Natural Energy, and Material Energy, American Indians Orenda, Ancient Germans Od, and Scientifically known as Dark Matter, most of which are believed to be a part of any living thing, translating to breath, air, gas, or life force that permeates the universe.

Some awakenings are gradual with signs, others are dramatic and spontaneous, but many forms of awakenings are achievable by anybody, harnessing a wide range of techniques and traditions, ultimately ascending to enlightenment.

For example, a synchronicity awakening will greatly heighten intuition. More than that, your autopilot with guide you to your hearts desires in ways that are absolutely mind boggling…

This state is often achieved when you raise your kundalini and activate your sacral chakra, your passion and pleasure center.

It has a lot to do with coincidences, attraction, arousal and what really turns you on. This can be anything from looks, appearance, humor, personality, fragrance, and vibes. However, in a duality sense, it’s really more so about vibes, energy, and synchronicity, along with pursuit of desires in general.

Before my awakening, I thought all that was really new in the way of sex and 21st century was internet dating, smartphones, more open communication with texting, and arranged hookups.

Now, to meet that special someone, I wouldn’t trade synchronicity for all of the best and most advanced technologies on the market, although I’m sure synchronicity would work through these technologies too.

Once your kundalini is active, there is no rush to raise it to other chakras; take your time to explore each awakening and gain some experience before moving on.

Enlightenment is only persistent for the very few who are prepared for it. Those who are unprepared often need to ride the waves and may find they need to get back to basics, which is a lot easier with the right guide.

Even those already in the know will greatly increase their understanding for an approach that works; however, this book is also well suited for those who just want to learn what’s involved, how to proceed and what to expect.

In any case, it’s always good to learn as much as you can, beyond the basics, to help ensure smooth sailings, make sure you do it right, and to help make sure it all “persists”, which is perhaps the biggest challenge of all. Expect to gain so much clarity after reading this book, along with a helpful reference you can revisit anytime.

Gaining an in-depth understanding is a great place to start, but just knowing what to expect is huge. Adopting the best methods and traditions that actually work is a real confidence builder too. It’s good to have a guide that actually helps and clears up a lot of the misconceptions floating around.

Get this book today and enjoy the journey!

Synopsis

This book is dedicated to Women around the world, I believe it's a time to be reminded of how Women used to be, and to honor the Old Fashion Woman. Somehow, we have became a stereotype, that has been totally turned upside down. We must not forget how significant we are in this world, and how to nurture one another, to uplift each other, to not degrade one another, but to compliment each other. I understand that times have changed, and there's more Women in the workforce, but there's so many amazing values we hold.

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.

View full details

Synopsis

Radical Regenerative Gardening and Farming informs and inspires gardeners, and farmers, who wish to bring quality and integrity into their work with the land. It is about developing close relationships with land that produces our food. This book combines over 40 years of Frank Holzman’s experience in farming, gardening, education, research, and development to provide techniques and concepts for sustainable land use.

Radical Regenerative Gardening and Farming is a more spiritual and thoughtful approach to land stewardship, geared toward aspiring gardeners with a desire for a deeper connection with the earth. It is as much about why as it is about how to develop land. Rather than traditional tractor farming, this book provides a better understanding of horticulture, dealing with the biological interactions between soils and plants, and providing a good understanding of living systems. Holzman examines healthy perspectives of how to approach a piece of land as a living organism and transform it into a balanced ecosystem.

Frank Holzman provides lots of information and insight for backyard gardeners and professional farmers, alike. Truly a great resource for transforming the garden, as well as the gardener.

Book cover image for Impact of the Shift Workbook: Finding Yourself Through Your Experiences
View full details

Synopsis

In life, everybody faces daily challenges. We can feel them in the core of our belly, and they cause a shift in our lives. Some impacts are more extensive than others and have major side effects such as depression, stress, or major illness. One of the ways we can release these shackles is to recognize, embrace, and accept The Impact of the Shift. This impact will awaken what is strong in you. I call these hurts growing pains. Remember what your mother told you: What doesn’t kill you will only make you strong-er! As each of your daily challenges is completed and you have overcome the impact of it, you will shift to another level in life. Throughout the process, remember to breathe, love, and forgive. Yes, you must repeat this all day and every day because you want to live, to im-prove, not just survive or exist—but to fully LIVE. Search your Pandora's Box of experiences because it is time to clean the darkness out. No one gets a pass on this. Accepting the Impact of the Shift without blaming anybody else allows you to take full responsibility, even when you think it is not your fault. If something is in your experience, somehow, someway, you have attracted that thing to yourself so that more good can grow from it. This book encourages you to answer questions, and I recommend jotting down short answers here plus purchasing a notebook where you can expand those answers. Responding to these questions will bring about the shift, and it will help you to review your answers occasionally. You will enhance your insight into your own personal shifts. I wish you the positive Impact of the Shift. Zinna Davis Shreveport, Louisiana

Do you know how to write it or how to tell it?
 
Creating Stories has the answers. Hank Quense, the author of more than twenty books, tells you how to do it. He believes that stories come from the melding of three elements: getting ideas, story design and story-telling. Ideas have to come from the author. Creating Stories covers the last two. 
The book concentrates on developing characters including such rarely discussed requirements such as a dominant reader emotion and the character's biography.
Plots are also covered in depth and a number of graphics are included to illustrate complex points. Another topic discusses subplots and how to utilize them and how to nest them within the main plot.
A separate chapter discusses the relationship between the plot and the emotional arcs.
Other topics covered are: character arcs, scene design, point-of-view, writing voice.
