Children’s Books: THE VERY HELPFUL MONSTERS (Very Funny Bedtime Story/Picture Book for Beginner Readers About… by Sally Huss

Herbie, a very little fellow, knew exactly what he wanted to be – a monster. He had his reasons. Being small, he wanted others to notice him and he felt that there was no better way to do that than to become a monster. So, he set out to find out how to become one. After finding no luck on his Internet searches for the information he needed, he decided he would get the real low-down on monsters from monsters themselves. One after another answered his questions and sent him off to interview another. But it was the fifth monster that put him straight, explaining that it is nicer to be nice than it is to be mean. Changing his goals, did Herbie get the attention he was craving? What do you think?

As a King Features syndicated author, I have been creating positive and inspirational messages, called “Happy Musings” for newspapers in the U.S. and Canada for many years.

It’s Always Been You (Always series Book 1) by Victoria Paige and Hot Tree Editing

Former Navy SEAL Travis Blake is a rising star in the security business. In two short years, Blake Security Inc. has become highly sought after by the who’s who in Washington DC.

But unbeknownst to many, Travis is haunted by the mysterious death of his wife three years before. He carries with him the guilt of not being there to protect the one person who meant everything to him. He has buried his wife, but his heart refuses to accept that the body six feet under is hers. His obsessive search for her leads him deep into the trenches of covert ops—where everything is not what it seems.

One night, while fleeing assassins, she is left on the side of the road with a cryptic message: “It’s time for you to stop running. I’m not the one you love.”

When Travis receives news that the woman who has turned up at the American Embassy in Berlin could be his wife, he wastes no time getting to her. He is unprepared for the devastation that shreds him when Caitlin looks at him with no recognition in her eyes.

Loving an Alien by Angela Nicoara and Mike Ormsby

Think you’re all packed, for the love train? Think again.
Here’s a book you might want to take along for the ride….

‘Loving an Alien’: Intimate tales of true romance from brave women who crossed the cultural divide and loved to tell the tale.

Vive la différence!

In 1995, when young Romanian journalist Angela Nicoara applied to the BBC School in Bucharest, it changed her life in ways she could never have imagined. Raised in the closed society of communist Romania and stung by a recent divorce, she doubted her chances for a better future. But then she met some British guy, in a gloomy corridor, and everything changed.

“There was a power cut at BBC School. It was so dark I could hardly see him. We chatted for a few minutes, sharing a joke about the excellent conditions, and I had a feeling I’d never experienced before; it was as if, I’d known him all my life. Why?”

Turns out, Cupid had just fired a couple of arrows that landed bang on target. Angela and her Brit spent the next twenty years travelling and working around the world – with a brief stop in Las Vegas to get married – and are now settled in a tiny village in the mountains of Transylvania, with bears for neighbours.

And that’s where Angela got the idea for ‘Loving an Alien’…

“One winter’s night, by our log fire, I started thinking about my girlfriends around the world, many of whom had married a foreigner. Their lives were so similar, and yet so different to my own. Hmm, why not share our experiences? What if I go back to how it all started for me? Put my journalist hat on and interview them? Ask about life on Planet Love – what might they say?”

If you’re into global travel, romance, life lessons, the do’s and don’ts of an intimate relationship, how to manage your in-laws, how to finesse your outlaws, how to raise rootless, bi-lingual, ’third culture’ kids, then snuggle up with ’Loving an Alien’.

In a remarkably candid series of Q&A’s with twenty-six women of different nationalities, Angela reveals what makes a mixed marriage tick … and how to keep the love clock running.

“My college friends thought I was stupid, crazy, and throwing
away a bright future.” Jennifer

“Some girls think marrying an expat is the road to riches, but
that’s not true.” Sumi

“I never thought I’d be with an African, someone so different,
from this tiny village.” Sophie

“It wasn’t like I came to Sri Lanka to marry a Sri Lankan.
It just happened.” Jessica

“Marrying into a different culture means you are not trapped by your own, which is how I felt.” Wang

Angela Nicoara doesn’t just spill the beans, she gets the recipe.

It’s not memoir. It’s not fiction. It’s love. Long-distance. Long term. Visas and all. Join Angela on her journey to the heart of it.

How does coloring help stress for adults?

It’s been scientifically proven to help you take your attention away from your problems. This is the first step to stress relief. Because coloring regulates your amygdala, you get therapeutic relief from stress. You get a small dose of dopamine when you color which helps reduce anxiety and fear. Neuroscience has proven that when we stimulate this area of our brain to produce positive feelings, it can literally rewire our brains.

Coloring can now be thought of as a very inexpensive and creative therapy session. Since it requires focus, even if you only color for a short period of time, it can improve symptoms associated with ADD.
