Thin From Within: The Powerful Self-Coaching Program for Permanent Weight Loss By Joseph Luciani Review


Tired of your weight swinging up and down? Do you find it difficult to stick to a diet? You're not alone. Every day, millions of people battle temptation as they try to drop unwanted pounds. For those who succeed, a whopping 80 percent quickly pack the weight back on. "Thin from Within" delves into the root causes and reveals that diets alone--whether counting calories or controlling carbs--don't work.

 Why? Because lasting results have less to do with what you eat, and everything to do with why you eat it. To lose weight and keep it off, you've got to retrain your brain. Renowned psychologist Joseph J. Luciani explores the emotional triggers and ingrained habits driving overindulgence--and shares simple self-coaching techniques proven to control cravings and break the cycle of self-sabotage.

Once mastered, these strategies turn healthy eating into an effortless process. Combining insight and inspiration with powerful cognitive tools, this remarkable guide enables you to: Embrace change - Strengthen your self-discipline - Resist the lure of comfort foods - Free yourself from destructive thinking - Replace even the most stubborn bad habits with positive ones - Develop resilience and confidence - Learn from setbacks - Fight food addictions - And more It's up to you. You can try yet another fad diet and fail--or read "Thin from Within" and finally find your permanent weight loss solution.

Dr. Joe offers FREE Self-Coaching advice on his website and daily blog: www.selfcoaching.net / Twitter @SelfCoaching101 / facebook www.facebook.com/selfcoaching

He's run four New York City Marathons, hunts dinosaur bones in Wyoming, and practices yoga and meditation. Dr. Joe Luciani lives the life he wants...but it wasn't always this way.

Years of struggle with anxiety and self-doubt led to a career in psychology with the hope of finding relief. And that relief came with the discovery that anxiety and depression, if treated as habits rather than as mental illnesses, can be dealt with simply and directly without endlessly having to dissect the "whys" of the past. As with someone trying to quit smoking, you don't have to know why you took that first cigarette--you simply have to chip away at the here-and-now habits (doubts, fears, and negative thinking) of today.

If you too want to connect with the joys of life, then you need to know what you're doing that feeds your problems and what you can do to starve them instead. Self-Coaching--it's as simple as that.

Dr. Joe has been a practicing clinical psychologist for more than thirty-five years. He's the internationally best-selling author of the Self-Coaching series of books, published in nine languages. He's written articles and been featured in numerous national magazines and newspapers, including O, The Oprah Magazine, Redbook, USA Today, Fitness, Health, Shape, and Body and Soul. He appears frequently on national TV, radio, and the Internet.


Cassandra's Review-  Weight loss has always been a challenge for my whole family.  It is not as simple as putting down a cupcake or three. The author takes this issue into a deeper story and created a great learning tool.  Getting to the root of the problem and being able to offer such insightful knowledge was key to making this book a great read for me.

Very bright and they caught my children's interest right from the start.  Each page has a really fun fact for the kids to learn.  I also enjoyed a separate CD that had one track for Kobee.   The book is super fun to read outloud to the kids and would be an excellent collection to any home or school library!

The Feathered Bone By Julie Cantrell Review



“Feathers—no matter what size or shape or color—are all the same, if you think about them. They’re soft. Delicate. But the secret thing about feathers is . . . they are very strong.”

 In the pre-Katrina glow of New Orleans, Amanda Salassi is anxious about chaperoning her daughter’s sixth-grade field trip to the Big Easy during Halloween. And then her worst fears come true. Her daughter’s best friend, Sarah, disappears amid the magic and revelry—gone, without a trace.

Unable to cope with her guilt, Amanda’s daughter sinks into depression. And Amanda’s husband turns destructive as he watches his family succumb to grief. Before long, Amanda’s whole world has collapsed.


Amanda knows she has to save herself before it’s too late. As she continues to search for Sarah, she embarks on a personal journey, seeking hope and purpose in the wake of so much tragedy and loss.

 Set amidst the murky parishes of rural Louisiana and told through the eyes of two women who confront the darkest corners of humanity with quiet and unbreakable faith, The Feathered Bone is Julie Cantrell’s master portrait of love in a fallen world.

Julie Cantrell
New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author, Julie Cantrell was the editor-in-chief of the Southern Literary Review. She has been a freelance writer for a decade and has contributed to more than a dozen books.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review- Wow, A whole lot of topics are hit in this book. The author spared no truths when writing about them.  I found it to be so terribly sad and it seems that this book is just hitting on the verge of intensity for the heartstrings.

Wally Wuzzlemoore Makes New Friends By Tom Schinderling Review


“Wally Wuzzlemoore Makes New Friends” is a children’s book with an imaginative storyline and illustrations designed and written by professional artist Tom Schinderling.

Written to resonate with both children and adults, “Wally Wuzzlemoore Makes New Friends” tells the story of a friendly monster’s quest to meet new people and decide who his friends should be after moving away from his old home in the country to a new home in the city.
“Kids are just like adults in that they are afraid to make new friends,” Schinderling said. “When I wrote ‘Wally Wuzzlemoore Makes New Friends,’ I did so with the goal that parents could read it with their children to ease their worries, prepare them for change and help them make new friends.”

Schinderling wrote and illustrated the book to teach children that if they are kind, polite, optimistic and open to getting to know new people like Wally was, then their journey to make new friends won’t be scary.
“Making new friends doesn’t have to be scary,” Schinderling says. “Every child needs to be reminded of that.”

He also produces sculptures, paintings and short films including “Against All Odds,” which received the Best Writing Award at the Fischgaard Short Film Project.

“Blood Gold Revenge Blog Tour






Title: Blood Gold Revenge

Author: Dave Wright

Genre: Thriller

“A lot of things have happened up this way over the years. There’s got to be at least six missing person’s that I have heard of.”

There is gold in the vastness of the Australian outback, and a special breed of men who prospect for it. Tim is bush-hardened and skilled; the love for this harsh country comes naturally. His prospecting partner John shares Tim’s love of the freedom, but times have changed. A new breed of prospector has reason to appreciate the desolate isolation of the bush — but it is not gold he is after. The country’s biggest meth lab is doing well, and its owner, Mr C. does not appreciate passers-by.

The cattle on the Hatchet River Station homestead have not been mustered for the past ten years. The brutish Maxine, her husband Scrubber, and her brother Price have agreed to run interference for Mr C.; after all, they have always enjoyed killing the odd lone prospector when they had the chance.

But they make a mistake, and the solitary prospector they pick off one day was not alone as they thought. There are witnesses to the crime this time, and they want justice for their friend. Tired of the Hatchet River trio’s murdering ways, intimidation and threats, and suspecting local police corruption, Tim, Jack and Sam call in the state authorities.

A massive search begins; the hunters become the hunted, the innocent pay for the crimes of the guilty and the good guys don’t always win. But the net does tighten. The well-camouflaged drug lab explode in flames and the blood of many, good and bad, soak into the parched land in a spectacular finale. It is not the authorities who bring justice to Hatchet River, however, but a band of indomitable bushies, who have never learned to say die.

Finishing off grade 10 at age 15 in Redcliffe before starting work in the remote gold mines of Northern Australia 34 years ago.
