Make Waiting A Little Easier With This Inspirational Guide For Less Than $1 – April 26

One of the greatest challenges in our walk with God is waiting for answers to our heartfelt prayers. This 31-day devotional will walk with you through those challenging times. By the end of the month, you will be confident that God is with you, God loves you, and God wants to answer your prayers.

Those who enjoyed Promises to Speak Over Your Life, Jesus Calling, and 1000 Gifts will like WAITING WITH GOD.  

WAITING WITH GOD was inspired by the author’s own struggle with waiting for answered prayers. She turned her bible study and recorded thoughts into this book.

EXCERPT:

If you’re like me and have tried to do everything on your own, the most difficult decision may be letting go and letting God. What an enormous amount of trust it takes to say, “Okay God, I’ve tried to do it my way, but I’m ready to let go of the reins and turn my life over to you.”

I’ve done everything. Worked on Wall Street, taught overseas, travel extensively, and read voraciously. But the one thing I’ve always wanted to do was write. It’s honestly the best feeling in the world to fulfill a lifelong dream. And after having a lot of careers that didn’t fit, it’s wonderful to sit down at my desk every morning and really enjoy my work.

Favorite Place to Write: Sitting at my desk next to a window with the great view of the mountains, and surrounded by 3 monstrously large, sleeping, Newfoundland dogs.

Learn How To Make More Money With This $2.99 Guide – April 22

Who couldn’t use more money and move up in their career? HOW TO LEARN HIGHER PAYING SKILLS will provide you with the critical information to be able to advance your job and income level. 

Readers who love What Color is Your Parachute, Quitter, or The 4-Hour Workweek will like HOW TO LEARN HIGHER PAYING SKILLS.

Mr. Churchill was inspired to write this book when he realized that to succeed professionally and financially, he would have to take charge of my own learning and development to get higher paying skills. 

This book will be available on April 22nd.

EXCERPT:

As we’ve observed, the economy is ruthless. It does not care about your career, your goals, or your efforts to provide for yourself and your family. The economy does not care that your job–your source of pride and income–suddenly vanishes to reappear in another country. The economy does not care if your career is suddenly vaporized by a new technology or invention. The trend of “creative destruction” is actually no longer a trend. This is the new, permanent way the game is played. The most important skill you need to succeed is the ability to learn new skills quickly.


STEVE CHURCHILL

Steve Churchill is not an “author.” He’s just a guy who’s still pounding the pavement each day searching for business/work. He’s committed to helping people get liberated from unrewarding, dreary work. He believes anyone, in any circumstance, can teach themselves new skills and get a better career. 

My favorite thing (of late) is when people read my book (or even a chapter) and say, “Wow, that’s really good information! I’ve been wanting to change jobs for a long time now, but I don’t have the knowledge or experience to get into the line of work I really like. This book gives me a strategy for accomplishing that and finding a job aligned with my dreams.”

Be Moved By This Heartbreaking Memoir for less than $1- April 20

LEAVING THE HALL LIGHT ON is a moving story of a mother’s struggle to help her bipolar son and coping with his death. Madeline describes her life when her son Paul is diagnosed with bipolar disorder after a psychotic break at 19. She goes on to talk about life with Paul and finding meaning in her life after his suicide.

Readers of A Year of Magical Thinking , The Liars’ Club, and The Glass Castle will appreciate LEAVING THE HALL LIGHT ON. 

Ms. Sharples came about writing this book from her experiences with audience members from her talks. She wanted to share her story with others as a way to erase the stigma of mental illness and to help others cope with the suicide of a loved one. 

This will be available on April 20 for $0.99.

EXCERPT:

One night right before the first Thanksgiving after Paul’s death, Sherry left a basket on my doorstep. Her note said that she dreaded the holidays after her mother died, so she gathered—“harvested” was the word she used—a few things to ease the holiday season for me. As I read her note and looked through the basket, I cried. Among the items inside was a book about coping with the loss of a love. This one was in poetry—she knew I wrote poetry—and the first book I was able to concentrate on enough to read through after Paul died. She also included a journal, a sweet smelling candle, a box of absolutely delicious chocolate covered graham crackers, and a smooth gray stone. This stone became my biggest comfort. Just large enough to fit in the palm of my hand, it feels the perfect size when I close my hand around it. One edge is round and the other is triangular. One side is plain; the other has the word “son” carved into it. My little stone became my night-time friend. I soon got into the habit of going to bed with it. Once settled, I held it on my chest just between my breasts. I liked its coldness on my aching heart. It helped me relax. Holding it in my hand and reading the word with my thumb also helped. I carried it around in my pocket for a while. I wanted to feel that it was there for me. Then, I began to wonder about my own sanity. Was I trying to exchange my son for a stone? When I got more together and began to feel better, I let go of it and let it rest on another item from that basket—a little, silk-covered, sachet pillow that smells like lavender. It has hand-painted butterflies and the word “heal” printed on the silk. They are still there on my bedside table after all these years.


MADELINE SHARPLES

I worked for most of my professional life as a technical writer and editor, grant writer, and proposal manager. But my love of poetry and creative writing began in grade school. I pursued my writing interests to high school while studying journalism and writing for the high school newspaper, and studied journalism in college. However, I only began to fulfill my dream to be a professional writer later in life. In addition to “Leaving the Hall Light On,” I co-authored “Blue-Collar Women: Trailblazing Women Take on Men-Only Jobs” and co-edited the poetry anthology, “The Great American Poetry Show” Volumes 1 and 2. My poetry also accompanies the work of photographer Paul Blieden in two of his books, “The Emerging Goddess” and “Intimacy.” I live in Manhattan Beach, California, with Bob, my husband of 40 years.
