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.

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 Falling for Her (Seasons in a Small Town)
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?

Book cover image for Getting It Write: Common Sense Copywriting for your Business
View full details

Synopsis

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if a book on Writing for your Business could guide you, gently but firmly down the path to security, success and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow? Unfortunately, life’s no fairy-tale, so I wouldn’t lay bets on the pot!

Fact is, there’s never an approach to anything that suits everyone and writing’s no exception. What works splendidly for someone else, might not tick your boxes. Which is why, in this book, you’ll find no absolute rights, wrongs or rules, just plenty of options, opinions and suggestions including such weighty matters as:

~ Not Murdering your Message
~ Marketing Hits and Myths
~ Creating Killer Copy Lines
~ Public Speaking or Root Canal Treatment?

I certainly hope some of what I’ve put together (based on more years of writing than I care to remember) will nudge you to approach things from new angles, encourage you to trust your own instincts, help avoid unpleasant pitfalls and help you make words work harder for you.

As a writer for businesses, the tools I work with are words (and multiple cups of coffee) but because we use words all the time, we can easily forget just how powerful they are and how they can work in oddly contradictory ways.

Doubtful?

Well, suppose I say, 'The meeting starts at 12.00.' Pretty straightforward statement. How about if I say, 'I’m sure the meeting starts at 12.00.' The addition of that one word changes the statement. How odd is that? 'Sure' is an unequivocal endorsement, yet put it before a statement and it instantly casts doubt, making you sound less rather than more certain. Words can be pesky but if you're running a business your communication has to be good, if it's not, you won't be running a business for long.

"5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging, succinct - with brilliant tips.
This book has inspired me to change my copy on every single forum out there! There are so many brilliant tips and Marilyn’s engaging humour shines throughout. I have a long list of to do's and ideas to follow through. Aside from the tips, I learned simply from her style of writing - she practices what she preaches. It's helped me focus, refine and step into my authenticity in the material I put out there. Sometimes you read a book that really changes how you think, this is one of those.’ Welshy. 7 February 2019"

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 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 I'm Never Drinking Again: Maybe It's Time To Think About Your Drinking?
View full details

Synopsis

We’ve all declared, “I’m never drinking again,” while our heads pound and our stomachs churn from last night’s good time. The guilt of mistakes, harsh words, lost time, etc. eats at your gut, but a day or two later you’re back at it.
You worry that drinking may be affecting your health, finances, relationships, and/or career, but you feel like AA is not for you. You don’t want to be labeled an alcoholic for being a social drinker; it’s not that bad. If this is you, then check out Trish Taylor’s latest book, I’m Never Drinking Again: Maybe It’s Time to Think about Your Drinking.
Trish grew up in Britain where you’re basically born with a drink in your hand. She happily drank for decades without question. Just like the rest of us, she justified and avoided her habit. It wasn’t a serious problem, and she knew she didn’t belong in a 12-step program. However, when she got real with her drinking, she discovered ways to quit without a formal program. In her book, she shares her methods to help others do the same.
We all know that drinking is bad for us, but it’s easy to forget once the hangover subsides. Although we have this in common, the solution does not come in one size fits all. Trish combines humor, stories, and resources to help you explore your relationship with alcohol and discover alternative ways to make positive changes that fit you.

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.

Bheki is small for his age and is bullied by the bigger herdboys in his African village, but his magic light wins him friends and respect – until the light begins to fade. Bheki then embarks on a life-changing journey to bring power back to the magic light.
Perfect for teaching children about science, other cultures, and self-worth.

'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.

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



– To look up a specific word or phrase, check the alphabetical inventory at the beginning of this book. Then click on the capitalized link (or links) associated with it to go to that discussion.

– Read the columns month by month.

– Browse at will.

– Engrave on your heart.

Book cover image for Would You Rather Be in the Coffin Than Give the Eulogy - how to take the terror out of public speaking and advance your career and social ne
View full details

Synopsis

The book that could change your life.

Whether you’re just starting out in your career or an expert in your field you will need some basic skills in public speaking – and some practical advice. Here it is.

The ability to speak in public is probably the most rewarding skill you will ever learn. It will not only improve your career prospects, but will also boost your self-confidence at social functions (you may never become the life and soul of the party, but at least you won't have to remain a wallflower!)

Have you ever:

Been nervous about a promotion because it involved public speaking?
Been afraid to speak up in meetings?
Turned down an invitation to speak at your garden club or similar (or choked horribly in the attempt)?
Been unsure about proposing a toast, or introducing and thanking a speaker?

Then you will benefit from the tips and guidelines in this book. Self-confidence comes from knowing the correct way of doing things - and how to avoid the pitfalls.

As you advance in your career you might be expected to:

Give presentations.
Deliver farewell speeches.
Compere functions.
Do media interviews.
And yes, give eulogies.

This book provides a step-by-step guide for giving these, and many other speeches, with examples that show you what to do, what not to do - and what can go hilariously wrong! (Some things are only learned by experience).

Jan Hurst-Nicholson has used her 35-year involvement in public speaking training, and her experiences giving talks at numerous events and organisations to compile this practical guide. Uniquely geared towards the average person who does not aspire to become a professional speaker, (although there's good stuff for them as well) but merely wants practical advice on speaking in public, (don't drink anything fizzy before a speech) it is packed with meaty information that provides the tools for a better, confident you. Use them and you will soon have those butterflies flying in formation - and it might even change your life.

* Makes a great graduation gift.
