We would like to extend to all of our friends and followers our very best wishes for the New Year, and success in all of your endeavours. For our part, we are pleased to be starting into the new year in the spirit and stride that we intend to continue: by bringing you the best in independently published literature - fiction, non-fiction, poetry and prose.
Already we are off to a flying start with the publication of two new titles, by authors who are making their book publishing debut but who each have a wealth of experience, literary and storytelling talent behind them. Their books are available to buy now from our ever-expanding online catalogue as well as in certain bookshops (ask about it if it's not in stock).
Tom is a man "consumed with grief, life no longer means anything to him. Like a dead man walking he goes in search of comfort and companionship and, unfortunately, finds them in alcohol. However this turns out to be the wrong step in the right direction."
Themes of family and community are explored. At one point Jane remarks upon "a constant question in my heart and the question still remains - what is a family?":
The Echo of a Troubled Soul is a story with an overriding theme of redemption on the road to recovery; a state which is ultimately achieved when we accept our fate. Because in the end "we are like writing pencils in the eyes of the almighty, and he can clean us up whenever it pleases him."
Nuala Duignan is a qualified Life Coach whose expertise in this area is drawn as much from her own background and experiences, as from her professional training in this field. Born and raised on a farm in Co. Roscommon, she had a varied career (running her own catering business, working in construction and hospitals, both general and psychiatric) before she took up Life Coaching. She says that it was her experience in the medical field that motivated her to pursue Life Coaching as a career. She now uses her accumulated work experiences and coaching skills to help move individuals, from where they are currently to where they want to reach.
In Charting Your Life's Roadmap ... she talks about the self-inhibiting factors that prevent us from achieving our true potential for happiness in our lives. She says that 'our attitude' is essentially our 'window on the world' and it is also within our self-control. She talks about how to build self-esteem, how to overcome worry patterns, conquer our fears and move from negative to positive thinking.
Many of us are unhappy in our lives because we find ourselves doing jobs we don't particularly care for; part of a 'doing culture' rather than an 'act of being'. Nuala talks about 'the work that we were born to do'. This means Finding Your Passion in life and making that your overriding objective. She gives practical insight and advice on matters such as redundancy, self-employment, entrepreneurship, time management, customer care, coping with workplace stresses, etc.
The book is interspersed with testimonials from people that Nuala has worked with in her capacity as a Life Coach. It also contains words of advice in the form of quotations from famous people and historical figures - Martin Luther King, Michael Caine, Theodore Roosevelt, Judy Garland, Henry Ford, George Elliot to name but a few.
