Busy Writer's Guides (11 Book Series)
From Book 1: The misconceptions around what writers mean when we talk about strong female characters make them one of the most difficult character types to write well. Do we have to strip away all femininity to make a female character strong? How do we keep a strong female character likeable? If we're writing historical fiction or science fiction or fantasy based on a historical culture, how far can we stray from the historical records when creating our female characters?

In Strong Female Characters: A Busy Writer's Guide you'll learn
- what “strong female characters” means,
- the keys to writing characters who don’t match stereotypical male or female qualities,
- how to keep strong female characters likeable, and
- what roles women actually played in history.

Each book in the Busy Writer’s Guide series is intended to give you enough theory so that you can understand why things work and why they don’t, but also enough examples to see how that theory looks in practice. In addition, they provide tips and exercises to help you take it to the pages of your own story with an editor's-eye view.

Strong Female Characters is a mini-book of approximately 4,000 words.

Brevier-Reihe Hirnschrittmacher (Reihe in 5 Bänden)
Aus Band 1: ***Mehr als 40.000 "Trottelfallen"-Breviere haben bislang ihre LeserInnen gefunden***
Hier ihr Feedback: Authentisch, interessant, kurzweilig, humorvoll, nie oberlehrerhaft, regt zum Nachdenken und Nachmachen an, mit der nötigen Tiefe, fachlich fundiert, empfehlenswert, hat Spaß gemacht zu lesen! Allerdings auch: keine große Literatur, habe mir mehr erhofft, unwissenschaftlich, gruselig, lesenswert aber ausbaubar. Sie wissen, es gibt oft unterschiedliche Bilder und Meinungen. Bilden Sie sich doch Ihre eigene Meinung!

Dieses Buch hält Ihnen humorvoll einen Spiegel vor, damit Sie Ihre Gewohnheiten und eingefahrenen Muster besser erkennen können. Welche davon reduzieren Ihre Lebensqualität und wie können Sie sich davon befreien? Sie wollen sich z.B. regelmäßig bewegen, Ihr Gewicht reduzieren oder aufhören zu Rauchen, aber Ihr Gehirn findet immer wieder Gründe, morgens lieber liegen zu bleiben, dieses kleine Stück Schokolade zur Ausnahme zu erklären oder Ihre Nichtraucherkarriere auf später zu verschieben? Spätestens ab Vierzig sind wir nicht nur für unser Gewicht, sondern auch für unser Gesicht und unsere Haltung verantwortlich. Gewohnheiten "nisten" sich in unser Denken, unsere Beziehungen, unsere Mimik und unsere Körperformen ein.

Die ersten Schritte sich zu befreien:
1. Schritt: Eine Bestandsaufnahme im Zoo unserer "Gewohnheitstiere".
2. Schritt: Die Analyse der Gewohnheiten und Muster.
3. Schritt: Wie ersetzen Sie lästige Gewohnheiten durch positive?

Die Erkenntnisse:
1. Unser Gehirn ist oft eine hervorragende Rechtfertigungsmaschine, damit möglichst alles im alten "Trott" bleibt.
2. Wir sollten unseren inneren Schweinehund nicht niederringen wollen, sondern zum Tanz auffordern und durch die Gegend schwingen.
3. Befreien Sie sich von Ihren Trottelfallen, von Naivität, Inkompetenz, Ignoranz, Inkonsequenz und schädlichen Identifikationen.
Freuen Sie sich auf vergnügliche Lesestunden, die sich für Sie lohnen werden!

Mercy Thompson (10 Book Series)

Moon Called is the novel that introduced Patricia Briggs’s Mercy Thompson to the world and launched a #1 bestselling phenomenon... 

Mercy Thompson is a shapeshifter, and while she was raised by werewolves, she can never be one of them, especially after the pack ran her off for having a forbidden love affair. So she’s turned her talent for fixing cars into a business and now runs a one-woman mechanic shop in the Tri-Cities area of Washington State.

But Mercy’s two worlds are colliding. A half-starved teenage boy arrives at her shop looking for work, only to reveal that he’s a newly changed werewolf—on the run and desperately trying to control his animal instincts. Mercy asks her neighbor Adam Hauptman, the Alpha of the local werewolf pack, for assistance. 

But Mercy’s act of kindness has unexpected consequences that leave her no choice but to seek help from those she once considered family—the werewolves who abandoned her...

“In the increasingly crowded field of kick-ass supernatural heroines, Mercy stands out as one of the best.”—Locus

Business Professional Series (8 Book Series)
From Book 1:

Professional Business Ethics – Skyrocket Your Career Without Sacrificing Your Integrity

As a moral and upright person, you might worry about the temptations of cutting corners, smudging a few details, or going behind a few backs to make it in today’s cutthroat business world. But what if you could gain tremendous business success, without sacrificing ethics, brown-nosing the boss, or sacrificing the most important things – family, friends and personal life?

Yet in today's world, you must resolve ethical dilemmas in the workplace every single day. Do you report the coworker who used racially charged language just out of earshot of an African American employee? Should you refuse to work long overtime hours without additional pay - choosing between impressing your boss or being with your family? And what about useless meetings, using cell phones and texting on the job, or even viewing pornography from work computers?

Your Integrity is Important

Your own personal integrity is as important as your education or your skills in how well you progress through your career.  You implicitly teach others how to act by example - your team will follow your lead and act as you act. By remaining professional at all times on the job, your team will get the message about to act as well. This applies regardless of your position; you can manage up as well as down the organization board. In other words, you train your boss, to a certain extent, by your own actions.

For example, there is some value to occasionally putting in extra hours without compensation. but by always longer, you allow your managers to create schedules and projects that depend upon that extra effort. Before long, you'll find these working conditions become normal and expected, and trying to "cut back" to normal will be looked upon with disfavor. You might even find "he's not a team player" or something similar in your review because of your attempts to have a good work/life balance.

How do you prevent this from happening? You'll learn the answers to this and other questions in this book.

Learn from an Expert

Having been a corporate leader and manager for over three decades, Mr. Richard Lowe presents some of the lessons he has learned from managing hundreds of people and leading successful and happy teams. Mr. Lowe has an established code of ethics and business conduct that will enable you to advance your career, make more money, be happier with your career, and yet still maintain a happy life outside of work.

Imagine you could do a few simple steps to actually begin to enjoy your job, come home refreshed, and increase your pay? What if you could do all that without brown-nosing the boss or sacrificing your integrity and personal life?

In this book, you’ll learn:

  • How to get the respect of your teammates without backstabbing

  • What it takes to be seen as an effective leader without using fear as a tool

  • How to handle the bad apples in the workplace

  • Why meetings are unnecessary and time-wasting unless they are carefully controlled

  • What to do about the email black-hole of lost time

  • Why managers love deadlines and how to control them

  • Why your integrity is the most important commodity you possess

How to maintain separate between work and life, even if the boss wants you to work yourself to death.

Are you making the same costly mistakes that Authors usually make?

Bonus: “How to Translate Your Books WITHOUT SPENDING A DIME” (the second book in the series) FREE with this book for a LIMITED TIME.

The No. 1 mistake most Authors make is that they spend too much money on “finishing” and marketing their books and then they are unable to recover their costs.

If that be so, then here is a book that can help realize your author-entrepreneur dreams WITHOUT SPENDING A DIME.

Fleecing authors has always been a multi-million dollar business from time immemorial.

˃˃˃ So how much should you be prepared to spend to create a really professional looking book?

The answer is: $0. Yes, you read it correctly.

You can create a professional product at ZERO cost, I repeat.

I am an Indian and it is in my nature to be somewhat miserly. But Indians are also known for creating high quality, low cost products, through sheer Jugaad, that can be loosely translated as “improvisation”.

In this book, I’m willing to share all my experiences of starting frugal with you.

I will explain how to start at $0, to ensure that your “business” does not financially cripple you.

And then, the moment you can afford it, to selectively incur costs where they can give you the maximum bang for your buck.

˃˃˃ Is this book right for me?

Please don’t read this book if you are already a best-selling multi-million dollar earning author who has no problems fishing out a cheque for any amount for that fancy book cover design.

Again, please don’t read this book if you believe that you don’t have the time to learn some simple skills yourself.

But if you are an author struggling to make a living but have the dreams of making it big one day at minimum cost, this BOOK IS CERTAINLY FOR YOU.

˃˃˃ What this book covers is:

* How to overcome the dreaded writer’s block.

* How NOT to be a perfectionist and fall into the trap of scams, plans, clubs and memberships which have perfected the art of fleecing desperate authors.

* How to set up a powerful routine and a daily word count so that you can keep churning out the kind of books you love.

* How to edit your book WITHOUT SPENDING A DIME.

* How to proof read/Beta read your book WITHOUT SPENDING A DIME.

* How to design a professional looking book cover WITHOUT SPENDING A DIME and WITHOUT THE KNOWLEDGE OF PHOTOSHOP.

And much more, as promised, WITHOUT SPENDING A DIME!
