86. A Little Book of Pleasures (Large Print 16pt) - William Wood

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

A delightful anecdotal collection! In these days of 24 hour news many of us may feel smothered under an avalanche of anxiety, despondency or at best choking with rage over national and world events. Grand passions apart, however, there is still much to enjoy. The small pleasures of life lie all around us. They might be found in a state of mind, in the touch of a familiar object such as a favourite wooden spoon, or they may be found in fleeting observations: a baby's smile, the sudden appearance of a stag in your path; or they may be physical pleasures like sucking the wet flesh of a ripe mango or the aroma of coffee spilling out on to the pavement on a cold morning. In a mad and greedy world it is these small pleasures that keep us sane, and dare we admit it, happy. Told with wry humour and a gentle, sometimes quirky style slightly reminiscent of a bygone era, Wood's collection contains a mixture of description and observation with a smattering of autobiographical incident. Wood has lived in many places of the world, is well travelled and well read, with a keen sense of enjoyment in what he sees and experiences, and a talent for bringing that visually to the mind of his reader. The short, usually self - contained pieces make wonderful cameos both for those who do their reading in snatches, and those who will want to devour his stories in one sitting. William Wood has led a nomadic life and his friends and relatives are far flung. He now lives and writes in Sussex when he is not visiting his children in France, Rutland and Cumbria or his in - laws in Norway and Slovakia. The diaries he keeps on these visits occasionally give him local colour and ideas for his stories. His short stories have been read on the BBC World Service and included in a number of magazines and anthologies. His first published novel, No Time, was brought out by Babesh/Ryan in 2003 and his next novel, Passing Wind has been shortlisted for an Amazon prize.

87. A Man's Heart (Large Print 16pt) - Lori Copeland

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Jules broke off her wedding to Cruz practically at the altar. Not just once, but twice. Now the man Jules loves best can't stand the sight of her. Only for Pop could Jules have made such a sacrifice. And now Pop is gone, leaving Jules with his struggling Washington State potato farm; with a sister excluded from his will; and with a heart wounded by the sacrifice she has made on behalf of her father. It looks like strengthening her relationship with her sister and improving the prospects of the Blue Bayou farm will be Jules' chief concerns. But when cancer takes the life of her best friend, Jules finds herself caring for her friend's two small children as well as the Blue Bayou. A drought-stricken farm. A promise to a dead friend and two needy little lives. And disturbing memories stirring up a growing relationship with her sister. How can one woman handle it all? The answer lies with a God who holds the keys to yesterday, today, and tomorrow and to the heart of the one man whom Jules could ever love.

88. A Million Windows (Large Print 16pt) - Gerald Murnane

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

This new work of fiction by one of Australia's most highly regarded authors focuses on the importance of trust, and the possibility of betrayal, in storytelling as in life. It tests the relationship established between author and reader, and on occasions of intimacy, between child and parent, boyfriend and girlfriend, husband and wife. Murnane's fiction is woven from images, and the feelings associated with them, and the images that flit through A Million Windows like butterflies - the reflections of the setting sun like spots of golden oil, the houses of two or perhaps three storeys, the procession of dark - haired females, the clearing in the forest, the colours indigo and silver - grey, the death of a young woman who had leaped into a well - build to an emotional crescendo that is all the more powerful for the intricacy of their patterning.

A funny novel that tackles the serious issues of divorce, breast cancer and being stuck in the 'Sandwich Generation'. A warmly humorous novel about an engagingly vulnerable woman who belongs to the Sandwich Generation - sandwiched between the demands of a career, elderly parents, teenagers and a marriage that is on the skids. Running from one crisis to another, Penny Rushmore misses the signs that her husband is about to leave her for a sexy, younger woman and is left bouncing between shoe shops and dreams of revenge. But how far should she go? And how will she find the time? She has no time for work - life balance, no time to read the manuals on coping with difficult teenagers and an increasingly dotty mother, and she especially has no time for breast cancer. But there's nothing like the big C to help sort out what's really important. When life hangs in the balance, decisions about whether to splurge on designer shoes, lose unwanted kilos or find a new fella suddenly don't seem so important any more ... until he turns up, that is.

100. Accidental Genius Using Writing to Generate Your Best Ideas, Insight, and Content - Mark Levy

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

When it comes to creating ideas, we hold ourselves back. That's because inside each of us is an internal editor whose job is to forever polish our thoughts, so we sound smart and in control, and so that we fit into society. But what happens when we encounter problems where such conventional thinking fails us? How to get unstuck? For Mark Levy, the answer is freewriting, a technique he's used for years to solve all types of business problems, and generate ideas for books, articles and blog posts.Freewriting is deceptively simple: Start writing as fast as you can, for as long as you can, about a subject you care deeply about, while ignoring the standard rules of grammar and spelling. Your internal editor won't be able to keep up with your output, and will be temporarily shunted into the background. You'll now be able to think more honestly and resourcefully than before, and will generate breakthrough ideas and solutions that you couldn't have created any other way.Levy shares six freewriting secrets designed to knock out your editor and let your genius run free. He also includes fifteen problem-solving and creativity-stimulating principles you can use if you need more firepower-seven of which are new to this edition-and stories of problems he and others have solved through freewriting. Also new to this edition: an extensive section on how to refine your freewriting into something you can share with the world. Although Levy originally taught freewriting as a private brainstorming technique, over the years he and his clients have found that, with some tweaking, it's a great way to generate content for books, articles, and other thought leadership pieces.
