If you are a spiritual person in any way, then you will find that this book helps you to see life from a perspective that changes it all!"
"I started reading this book during a time of lots of change & sadness. Over the past week, I have experienced amazing transformation and breakthrough in my life. This book has been a part of that transformation. I experienced my own spiritual moment with God along with reading this book and I couldn't be more thankful for Diane's willingness to write a book that could help so many people.
Diane starts this book off with encouraging her readers to check in with themselves and with their own thoughts before taking anybody's advice, including hers. Immediately, I trusted her. I knew when I read that sentence that she cares about her readers and that her writings are a mission! I'll share with you just a few of the "life changer" quotes that resonated with me.
"Perception is reality, and so the way you see and define something determines your feelings, behaviors, and interpretations of it."
"Reject relationships or circumstances that are unhealthy for you and that create energy drains."
"Maintaining a false self is hard work and a recipe for unhappiness."
"By understanding your belief system and how it aligns with your core self, you understand your true nature and stand in it in every circumstance."
This book is a must read!"

New Romance Release! Dreaming at Seaside by Addison Cole 'The writing was fantastic and this novel is an absolute page-turner from beginning to end.' reviews Jennifer Thomason
'Dreaming at Seaside, the second in this standalone sweet romance series, was just as fabulous as Read, Write, Love at Seaside! This time the story focuses on the wild, outspoken Bella and a new police officer in town named Caden. Bella has decided to quit her teaching job in Connecticut and move to the Cape full time, hopefully heading up a new work study project with the local high school. Caden and his 15-year-old son Evan have just moved to the cape from Boston as Caden tries to recover from the death of his partner. Bella has sworn off relationships but can’t deny the attraction to Caden – but Caden doesn’t want a one night stand, he wants a relationship.
Bella and Caden’s story was wonderful, as was the chemistry between them. The writing was fantastic and this novel is an absolute page-turner from beginning to end. I love that the Sweet with heat series brings passion and chemistry into the stories without going overboard on the sexy scenes and language, just proving that leaving some things up to the imagination does not take away from the power of the story! I am officially hooked on this series and cannot wait to read book 3!'

DREAMING at SEASIDE
Bella Abbascia has returned to Seaside Cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, as she does every summer. Only this year, Bella has more on her mind than sunbathing and skinny-dipping with her girlfriends. She’s quit her job, put her house on the market, and sworn off relationships while she builds a new life in her favorite place on earth. That is, until good-time Bella’s prank takes a bad turn and a handsome police officer appears on the scene.
Single father and police officer Caden Grant left Boston with his fourteen-year-old son, Evan, after his partner was killed in the line of duty. He hopes to find a safer life in the small resort town of Wellfleet, and when he meets Bella during a night patrol shift, he realizes he’s found the one thing he’d never allowed himself to hope for—or even realized he was missing.
After fourteen years of focusing solely on his son, Caden cannot resist the intense attraction he feels toward beautiful Bella, and Bella’s powerless to fight the heat of their budding romance. But starting over proves more difficult than either of them imagined, and when Evan gets mixed up with the wrong kids, Caden’s loyalty is put to the test. Will he give up everything to protect his son—even Bella?

It’s Leif’s eighth summer going viking with his father on their ship the Kraken—and he’s had enough. For as long as Leif can remember, his father has claimed to be a descendant of Ægir, god of the sea, and has exploited their shape changing ability—all this to amass enough gold to gain entrance into the ocean god’s halls. Leif hopes that time’s drawing near so he can free himself from Ragna’s domineering shadow.
On the green hills of Éire, Eilish is content learning traditional folk cures from her father until a Finn-Gall raid disturbs the peace. Desperate to protect Eilish from harm, her father cuts her hair and disguises her in his old clothing before she’s ripped from the only home she’s ever known. Sold as a thrall in Duiblinn, she must hide out as a young man on a ship full of barbarians.
Now Eilish, who fears she’ll become Ægir’s next sacrifice, and Leif, who isn’t prepared to stand up against his father’s powerful wrath, must face the tides of change—no matter how ominous they may seem.

This pioneer book helps children and parents face a critical, often avoided topic with reassurance and calm.

--Marc A. Brackett, PhD., Director, Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence

Our Beck Valley Book Review - Jesus and Magdalene by João Cerqueira
"Another masterpiece from a very humorous and satirical writer who will be very popular and in my opinion is the new version of our British writer Tom Sharpe.
The authors reincarnation of Jesus in modern day life and the trials and tribulations he would face and how he would deal with them is first rate. The novel starts off with Mary and the 12 disciples (apostles) fighting against gm crops and trying to influence the local church and people not to use them. Head of the group is Judas who wants full on direct action and then along comes Jesus with his pacifism.
Using study and teachings from the bible the novelist brings them to life in our modern day lives and gives us a timely reminder of how change no matter what it is can have a devastating effect not just now but for future generations as well.
As a politician recently stated a lot can be learnt from humour and puts the mind in a more relaxed state to comprehend the full consequences of any actions that are implemented. This is what I believe the author is trying to achieve.
A strong message that also comes across is which is the right path to follow to achieve your goal or influence people to believe in your idea/concept, do you use aggression (Judas character ) or pacifism (Jesus character ). Very nature of the rudimental teachings of the holy book.
This novel and storyline along with the characters portraits would not be possible without the author’s immense knowledge and research into the bible. Being a Christian at no point in this storyline was I offended, I really believe through the humour the writer has given us a timely reminder of what virtues are important today."
