'Quirky, Sedaris - style musings with unexpected theatrical trimmings.'' - Time Out Chicago These days, reality can be hard to swallow. How do we get to the end of day, let alone the end of the week? Some people drink, others get therapy, but all of us - hidden in the secret places in the backs of our minds - have fantasies. These are what we wish for, fight for, live for. Maybe yours is a pretty girl. Maybe it's a better job. Maybe its the love that'll swoop down makes everything seem okay. It's the fantasies that'll save us, but still - they're a dangerous thing. That pretty girl may not be so pretty tomorrow; that perfect job may not really exist; and what happens to love when you're so lost in a fantasy you can't see what's right in front of your face? The stories in Everyone Remain Calm explore the lines between fantasy and reality - how we move between the two in a crazy attempt to make our lives better. It's a hard journey - we get anxious, panicked, fearful, lost - our pulse quickens, shoulders tighten. We forget to breathe. These stories are a reminder.

12. More to Keep Us Warm (Large Print 16pt) - Jacob Scheier

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

Both chronicle and confrontation, the poems of Jacob Scheier's debut work out and through notions of loss. As the death of a young man's mother instigates and informs these investigations, the realities of romantic failures become inextricably connected, and in the process More to Keep Us Warm maps the limitations, and breaking points, of the human heart. Questioning how and why we fall in and out of love becomes the collection's haunting refrain. At the same time, Scheier's poems mourn the absence of both religious and cultural identity. Facing the painful and confusing losses of his life, the support of the only ''tradition'' the writer knows - an atheist, socialist upbringing - proves unsatisfying. In response, More to Keep Us Warm explores the formation of a new, complex sense of self as inherited belief systems fail. With humour, sardonic wit, and conversational charm, this search engages and struggles with Judeo - Christian tradition to become an intimate meditation on the nature of God in a secular world.

That first smile. Those first steps. Their faces as they flew through the air on a swing for the first time. For most parents, these moments are priceless, moments that are gone as quickly as they happened. Parents have the best of intentions when they begin writing down everything their children do, but that early zeal is soon replaced by the hectic nature of life, and they give up, often feeling guilty that they didn't do more. But it's never too late to go back and recollect these amazing moments; after all, even your foggiest memories are clearer than your child's, who doesn't have the ability to recollect events that happened in his or her first four or five years. Most children are forever asking their parents, ''What was I like when I came home from the hospital? What was my first word?'' Love, Mommy: Writing Love Letters To Your Baby is a book that finally helps parents recreate their child's memories for them. Author Judy Siblin - Librach, a mother of two, journalist, and talk show host, explains how to recall those moments and give them back to your children as a precious gift of memory. She encourages mothers, fathers, grandparents, and other relatives and friends to join in and try to rebuild those early years for your children. Imagine the look on your child's face when you hand them a series of memories of their childhood, as remembered by you. As a gift for a birthday, graduation, or their wedding, it would be absolutely priceless to them. And maybe you'll see that same look they had as they smiled for the very first time.

14. The Anatomy of Clay Poems (Large Print 16pt) - Gillian Sze

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

Taking off from the Promethean myth of human creation, Gillian Sze's second poetry collection explores the ''anatomy of clay'' and the individual as a sentient mystery. At times reflective, instructional, playful, or strange, the first section, Quotidianus, offers observational poems, which recount intimate and ordinary moments often missed, overlooked, or forgotten. Sze tugs at the fabric of habit and amidst the urban mundane finds her subjects in a woman waiting for the bus, a neighbour who talks to his plants, a girl smoking after a storm. The following section, Extimacy, takes a lyrical and confessional turn, veering inwards, dealing reflexively with the materiality of inner life: the self as ingredients, the self as experiment, the self as animal and artist. The Anatomy of Clay finds exceptions in the most prosaic conditions and the ineffable distinctions between people, selves, objects, and histories.

18. Writing-The Sacred Art Beyond the Page to Spiritual Practice (Large Print 16pt) - Rami Shapiro

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

Push your writing through the trite and the boring to something fresh, something transformative.
''Writing as spiritual practice has nothing to do with readers per se. You aren't writing to be read; you are writing to be freed. Writing as spiritual practice is conspiratorial rather than inspirational. It conspires to strip away everything you use to maintain the illusion of certainty, security and self - identity. Where spiritual writing seeks to bind you all the more tightly to the self you imagine yourself to be, writing as spiritual practice intends to free you from it.''
- from Rami's Preface
This isn't about how to write spiritual books. It isn't about the romance of writing. It doesn't cover the ins and outs of publishing and building a brand. Instead, this fresh and unapologetic guide to writing as a spiritual practice approaches writing as a way to turn the spiral of body, heart, mind, soul and spirit that leads to spiritual awakening.
Lead by renowned spirituality teacher Rami Shapiro and award - winning writer and writing coach Aaron Shapiro - and featuring over fifty unique, practical exercises - it takes you beyond assigning inspirational words to the page. It shows you how to use your writing to unlock the joy of life and the infinite perspectives and possibilities that living provides.
