To Be SomeoneTo Be Someone

Helena Nicholls, ex world-famous pop star and prime-time DJ, wakes up in hospital to find her looks, her career and her personal life in tatters. She has been let down by her boyfriend, and the one person she loved most in the world – her best friend since the age of five – is dead. She feels that she belongs nowhere, and her sense of identity, fragile at the best of times, is in pieces.

So Helena turns to the one thing that has always got her through, the one thing that has real resonance: music. And she begins to concoct The Plan. Using the request format that made her radio show so popular, where listeners rang in with detailed stories about why certain songs were so meaningful for them, she sets out the story of her own life, chapter by chapter, track by track.

Thinking about the songs that represent important chapters in her own life, Helena begins to come to terms with her past. But the present is more of a problem as, while in hospital, she has re-met an old friend to whom she is still hugely attracted. Her strict adherence to The Plan, however, means that time is not on her side. If she is to have a future at all, she must work out what it really means To Be Someone.

With its wry, appealing narrative voice, and its insider’s take on the world of pop music, To Be Someone is a stunningly mature first novel which swings with wide smoothness between past and present, child and adulthood, joy and tragedy, love, loss and the meaning of true friendship.

Professor Simon Cross has spent his life searching for evidence of vampires and avoiding emotional entanglements. When a mysterious accident transports Simon and his assistant, Elizabeth West, back in time, Simon finally finds both the proof that he’s been looking for, and the romance that he hasn’t.

Simon and Elizabeth’s developing relationship is tested by demons real and imagined. In 1920s Manhattan, there are more than mobsters vying for power in the city’s speakeasies. When the local kingpin with a dark secret sets his sights on Elizabeth, day to day struggles become a fight for their very lives.

Don’t miss the other books in the Out of Time Series – When the Walls Fell and the newly released Fragments.

The Motivation MythThe Motivation Myth
by Jonathan Manske
Still free? Click Here to find out!

Most people believe praise, appreciation, and compliments are great ways to motivate and inspire people. Many think these communication tools are good people skills and are useful everywhere – from parenting to the boardroom, from friendship to leadership, from relationships to coaching. People mistakenly believe these tools are the keys to unlock human potential. That is a myth, says Mattison Grey and Jonathan Manske.

Fortunately, there is an alternative, acknowledgement. This communication tool is the cure for underperformance, lack of self-confidence, and ineffective motivation techniques. Grey and Manske have seen it over and over again – acknowledgement changes lives!

The Motivation Myth draws on scientific research, anecdotal stories from interesting people, and thirty-five plus years of combined experience in using and teaching the tool of acknowledgement. Grey and Manske reveal the simple yet effective communication tool of acknowledgment and how to work with it to motivate and inspire with integrity and grace.

Acknowledgement is the invisible language of results!

Cinnamon GirlCinnamon Girl

Still struggling to come to terms with the accidental death of her husband, feeling as if God has betrayed her, Lacy Erikson focuses on her position as the crime reporter for Bismarck’s major newspaper, and shoves thoughts of involving herself romantically again to the back burner.

Then she meets Mike Lindahl, a former police officer and gorgeous hunk of man who has his own troubled past. When the unusual murder of a young woman first brings them together, the pair finds themselves increasingly attracted to one another. Can either of them learn to trust again – in each other as well as the Lord?
