CHILDREN'S PICTURE BOOK: REPTILES 

Fred the snake was sent as a pet to a boy in the city by Jungle Jim, but the poor stripey serpent got squished in two when run over by an ambulance! Fortunately, he barely bled–for in snakes blood something flows to stop them leaking when they’re squoze! To sew the two halves back together, the doctor required a special, “bendy” jungle thread that brave Jim was only able to get from underneath a special rhino. Thanks to an emergency shipment from the jungle, the skills of the devoted doctor and the bendy thread, Fred was able to make a full recovery and go on to more adventures in books 2 and 3.





SIMPLY EFFORTLESS STYLE: A REAL WOMAN'S GUIDE TO MAKING STYLE EASY AND FUN

ADULT NON FICTION / STYLE / ORGANIZATION / SELF HELP

Style expert Lee Heyward believes that style is simply "the outer expression of the inner you." This book demonstrates that style is not about being egotistical or becoming a fashionista, but about easy steps that help women not only discover their own, personal style, but also show them how to dress authentically and maintain their style in order to make their own lives easier. Simpler. Even effortless. Lee Heyward wanted to forego the glossy façade format of many style materials and give women a handy tool that walks them through simple activities to help even the busiest or least "fashiony" person dress easily and purposefully. From redefining style in general, adjusting attitudes about the importance of style, and defining personal style through special exercises, to closet "edits" and inventories, tips for shopping like a pro and learning the art of dressing from the inside out through step by step instructions, Ms Heyward goes far beyond just styling the reader. She teaches the reader how to be stylish, from a mental attitude to the outer use of clothing as expression.

LOVE THY NEIGHBOR

CHRISTIAN LIFE / TRAVEL / RELIGIOUS CULTURES / AUTOBIOGRAPHY

​"They're mostly Muslims - they'll hate you!" was the dire warning given to the author before she embarked upon the adventure that would change her life. Time disproved that and many other negative predictions. In this world of "East Versus West" or "Christian Versus Muslim" mentalities, the real life experiences of ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher Alice Crocker disprove much of what many people expect when they become full time residents in a country, culture, or even religious environment that is not their own. She learned one of her most valuable life lessons, "Be yourself and let who you are speak to those you are connecting with."

IN THE PALACES OF HEAVEN

CHRISTIAN LIFE / SPIRITUAL GROWTH / INSPIRATION / ADULT NON FICTION​

Heaven. It is a Biblical promise that inspires awe and wonder, but one that seems unknowable until you leave this earth and your temporal body behind. But what if you could experience heaven now? What if you were meant to do it now? What if you could follow in the footsteps of Biblical examples like Enoch, Elijah, John, and Paul - all of whom experienced the heavenly realms firsthand? The truth is, God has made a way for us to experience and live in the realm that Jesus Himself ascended to after His resurrection. It is not off-limits. In fact, there is an open invitation. In this book, author Christopher Paul Carter shares his own heavenly journey. It wasn't a one-time event or a near-death experience. Rather, it was an introduction into an ongoing life in the heavenly places. There's no need to wait, the doors to heaven are open now, and God is inviting you in.​
