The Heat Is On with Children Books!.


Beating the Odds July 24, 2014

The five senses: tasting, smelling, touching, seeing and hearing.
Can you imagine what life would be like for an individual if any one of these senses was not in good working order as it should be? How would you feel and get along in life if you couldn’t hear the sounds around you, or the voices of your family and friends? Would communication come to a dead halt for you and your life become hopeless? How would this problem affect your daily life, especially as an impressionable teenager? Would you try to keep it a secret and hide it from your peers? How would you “fit in” and feel “normal” in a hearing world?

These two books listed takes you into the world of the deaf and hearing impaired and from the viewpoint of Ella Rose Abbott, a teenager living with a disability and fighting and beating the odds of her situation.

Two stories that deal with reality in today’s society. The Ella Rose Saga in two books, because you can’t read just one. Broken Voices & When Silence is Not Golden

The NLP Story: in Catherine’s words July 22, 2014

I have never told this story before, and it is a bit of a long post, so you may want to read it a bit at a time.

New Line Press this year celebrated our 10th anniversary and I have thought a great deal about the reflection upon these ten years. I wanted to write here an overview, though I wish I could write more, but truly, that would take an entire book.

This basically is how NLP came to be and some of my thoughts over the years as a publisher. I’m writing this two-fold, one because after ten years, it seems like a good a time as any, to reflect on our origins and path, and two, because if I could help even one potential author or person who would like to open or start a publishing company, then, I hope to encourage them with my experience.

Avete presente quegli scomodi abiti vittoriani? Quelli con la gonna che strascica un po' per terra, gonfiata sul di dietro dalla tournure? Quelli con i corsetti strettissimi e i colletti alti che solleticano il collo? Ecco. Io non vorrei indossare altro.
