DISCOVER: How to Get More out of Life with Less

We live in a world where the masses seem to celebrate those who have more and actually envy them for what they have. With that mindset, we tend to buy anything that we convince ourselves that we need—simply because we can afford it. Whether it’s a new phone every year, tons of new clothes or that second (or third) car that we need for the weekends, consumerism has taught us that we should buy new stuff as frequently as possible in order to remain trendy.

We have made our lives cluttered with so many material things that we have ended up feeling hollow and overwhelmed by the things that we actually bought having convinced ourselves that we need them.

But do you want to continue working for your stuff as opposed to living the fulfilling life that you constantly try to attain with your materialistic mindset? You probably bought all these things expecting them to make your life better, but is that really true?

My question is simple: Are you honestly living a happy and exciting life with each of the items that you have?

If not, this book might be for you. In Simplify: 7 Steps to Get More Out of Life with Less you will learn…

…how to simplify your mind.

…how to simplify your everyday life.

…how to simplify your living space.

…how to simplify your work life.

…how to simplify your finances.

…and how to simplify your health and fitness.

All seven chapters will help you to live a more simple but meaningful and fulfilling life. It’s like Bruce Lee once said: “It’s not the daily increase but daily decrease. Hack away at the unessential.”

Start living a meaningful life today.

Genre: Mystery

When a mutilated corpse is found bound to a tree deep in the forest of remote Aubrey Island, Washington, residents learn that the murder mirrors, in every ritualistic detail, a series of revenge killings described in a century-old local ghost story. More abductions and killings soon follow.

Justin Riddley, recently transferred to the island’s small college, faces growing evidence that one of his new friends and fellow students may be the murderer. John Marshall, redemption-seeking captain of the local police force, leads the frantic murder investigation and struggles to figure out whether the killings are tied to the island’s dark and violent past. Tormented by tragic wartime memories, and more convinced with each day that it is humanity’s fate to destroy itself, Marshall races against both the murderer and the specter of his own mental breakdown.

As blood continues to spill, Riddley and Marshall wonder whether there may be a dark, universal force that drives evil deeds great and small, and whether the nature of one’s childhood might sometimes, in the end, be all that separates the saint from the psychopath.

FOUR MATURE YA ROMANCES SET IN CALIFORNIA TO BENEFIT “A Chance for Children”

This four book boxed-set is designed for mature YA readers. Set in California, these stories follow the lives of various teens, all struggling to find their way and figure out what they want from life.

Betwixt by Melissa Pearl is Dale and Nicole’s story.

Hit by a car and left for dead, Nicole is lost to the world in a isolated forest, until her soul reaches out to be heard. The only one to hear her ghostly cries is Dale, a guy at school who has every reason to hate her. Can she convince him to listen before it’s too late? Or will her killer find her and finish the job first?

If I Fall by Anna Cruise is the story of Meg Calloway, a girl reeling from her parents’ sudden divorce.

Her father is about to marry a woman she can’t stand and her mother’s only companion is an endless supply of alcohol. When Aidan Westwood, an older boy at school, shows interest in her, she grabs on and doesn’t let go, thinking he’s exactly what she needs to help stem her loneliness and despair. She quickly learns that Aidan lives a darker, more dangerous life than she does and the more isolated she feels from her family, the more willing she is to step into his world.

As Meg drifts further from her friends, she tries to find comfort with a boy who is opening her eyes to new things, none of them good. Will she listen to those around her who are warning her that she’s headed down a path of self-destruction?

Or will she fall too far…too fast…too deep?

It Was You by Anna Cruise is the first Abby and West story.

Having endured eighteen years in the shadow of her identical twin sister, Annika, Abby Sellers wants a fresh start. A chance to create her own life, separate from her conniving, deceptive twin.

Surprising both her family and friends, Abby ditches her plans for college and enrolls at a new school instead. There, she encounters West Montgomery, a sexy fellow student who immediately disarms her with his good looks and charm. West takes a liking to Abby and she suddenly finds herself walking a thin line, fabricating a fictional life created not by lies but by omission. She soon discovers West has secrets of his own, secrets that he’s not altogether interested in sharing.

Out from under the shadow of her twin, Abby’s life—and her relationship with West—blossoms. When Abby leaves town one weekend, something unthinkable happens and her relationship with West is shattered. Reeling from the discovery, Abby fears all of her plans have backfired and she’s created a mess for both of them, a mess that no one can clean up.

But West isn’t willing to let her go that easily. When he forces her to confront secrets they’ve both been hiding, Abby must decide more than if she’s willing to forgive and forget. She must also decide just what kind of life she wants…and who she wants to live it with.

True Colors by Melissa Pearl is Caitlyn and Eric’s story.

A chance encounter with a strange, homeless man changes Caitlyn Davis forever. Suddenly, she can see behind people’s masks. She discovers that her life isn’t as simple as she imagined and high school is filled with secrets…some very sinister ones. Will Caitlyn’s new ability lead her into hot water? Or is her new found vision a blessing that will expose her friends’ true colors?

The authors will donate their proceeds to A Chance For Children, a California based charity that strives to empower at-risk youth by providing the opportunities to set goals and the tools to achieve them.

Contemporary Romance Stand-alone book.

“The lyrics are about you, Lena,” he confessed, and I watched his mouth as the tip of his tongue moistened his lips before he leaned his head down. Then those beautiful lips were on mine, soft, tender at first, then his tongue glided over my lips, breaking the seal. My pulse throbbed and quickened as his tongue swirled around mine. Taking and controlling, and… and I wanted this, needed his touch. I went limp in his embrace, and the heat rose under my skin, my body vibrated against his strong powerful one. Was this really happening?”

A powerfully romantic journey.

Jackson Beaumont prides himself on being a nature-loving, guitar-strumming carefree sort of guy, known for his eagerness to help injured animals find their way back into the wild. When Lena Benton walks into his bar, he’s once again swept off his feet with concern and desire to help the wounded. Will he risk having his heart torn apart again when the memory of the fawn he rescued as a child resurfaces?

After a not-so-wonderful young adulthood-shuffled from one foster home to another-Lena Benton had hoped marriage would be her ticket to happiness. Wedded a year after high school graduation, Lena was certain she’d found her knight. But when Troy Harington’s true colors surface shortly after their glorious day of elopement, things aren’t quite as rosy as Lena had envisioned. When an unforeseen event turns ugly, all she can do is … run!

But does she run far enough?

18+ due to sexual content and mature subject matter.

Suspense Thriller – A woman’s foolish public flashing stunt draws the attention of a disturbed watcher.

Sometimes, one mistake can come back to get you.

Kay Newman’s foolish public flashing stunt is seen by a disturbed watcher, someone who wants her to display herself again for him alone. The anonymous phone caller has one menacing demand: “Show me!”

At the same time, two Seattle Police detectives are trying to stop a string of violent assaults by a serial predator on local real estate agents like Kay. The police don’t think this predator is the same person who’s harassing Kay, but what if they’re wrong? What if it’s not a random stranger at all who’s tormenting Kay, but someone closer who she already knows?

“Has an air of suspense that gives you an edge-of-the-seat feeling.” – Coffee Time Romance Reviews

“If you’re looking for an interesting Mystery-Thriller, this would be a very good choice!” – Huntress Reviews

The right man doesn’t know she’s alive. The wrong man’s out to change that.

Coralie Busche can only admire Kenneth Rainier from afar. He’s a most handsome philosopher of the Romantic movement and for months she’s eavesdropped on his conversations at the coffee house. If only she had the courage to join his debates… and perhaps more. Her feminine education of singing and sewing could be of no interest to such a man — but then that vexing rake, the Duke of Cumberland, brings her to Rainier’s attention and she can’t hide any longer.

Rainier has lived with his mercenary sisters for too long to suffer any illusions about women. They value money, position, and precedence, not life’s important things such as poetry or painting, and only very lucky men find true love. But when he notices Cumberland staring at a dark-eyed beauty hiding in the coffee house’s corner, Rainier is smitten. Perhaps there’s a chance he could be one of those lucky men.

Cinderella meets Romeo and Juliet with a gorgeous gown, an unusual ducal matchmaker with motives of his own, and two cynical, jealous sisters. With All Hallow’s Eve approaching, tempers flaring, and a duelist’s challenge thrown down, how can His Grace, the Scoundrel of Mayfair, teach some loving sense to two soaring sensibilities?

What they’re saying about it:

Vivian Roycroft surprises the reader with the twists and turns of this plot.

It is pure escapism and a great read!
