Chinese Blockbuster (3 Book Series)
From Book 1:

A comprehensive, fun and pragmatic method to help you read simplified and traditional Chinese characters and pronounce them in Mandarin!

Each character is brought to life through funny and dramatic stories as well as why-didn't-I-think-of-that mnemonics. Its building blocks, definitions and pronunciations are all part of the memorization process, allowing you to remember all aspects of a specific character in one fell swoop.

This is the first book of an upcoming series that contains the following key features:

  • Over 4000 characters will be included in the series, a number necessary for reaching reading fluency in modern Chinese.
  • All aspects of a Chinese character are covered: 
    • Its simplified and traditional forms
    • The building blocks making up each form
    • Its various definitions
    • Its various pronunciations in Mandarin
    • Its known etymology, ancient meanings and shapes
    • Examples of use
    • Additional information, such as its frequency of use and other fascinating facts
  • The characters are presented in a logical order by prioritizing their frequency of use while considering the building blocks that compose them, the latter being presented first. Also, characters with similar shapes or having a similar role or meaning are kept together, greatly facilitating the learning process.
  • Intuitive, easy to recall mnemonics and funny or sometimes shocking stories that integrate all aspects of a given character are provided for improved retention.
  • The pronunciation and tone of a character are merged into the memorization process by making use of carefully selected sound words that form part of a cleverly designed sound system, one sound word representing one specific pronunciation and tone.
  • Fully illustrated, to help you form images in your brain.
  • Fully indexed, to allow searching a character by its definitions or its pronunciations in pinyin.

You will effectively learn to recognize and pronounce virtually all Chinese characters you are bound to come across, while being entertained!

Keep an eye out for the next book of the series, to be published soon!

Reading, Writing & No Arithmetic (3 Book Series)
From Book 1: “The competition to be a published writer is fierce. The dream of getting published has been overly-romanticized in the media so that many beginning writers think not only that writing is easy, but that they have a good chance of getting a contract from a major house. The odds are, realistically, one in a million-maybe worse than that. We hear about the success stories, not the ones who spend their lives toiling for that dream, to the exclusion of everything else, only to wind up poor, alone, lacking in social skills, and profoundly jaded that life has passed them by. There are so many unpublished writers who pursue this dream, and publishers and agents have had to crack down on the criteria to even LOOK at work sent. And it is very expensive for a writer to submit manuscripts, as I mentioned, and it's time-consuming as we have to do this repeatedly if we ever hope to get traditionally published. You have to pour lots of money into the endeavor over a period of many years, sometimes. And more often than not, this investment does not return.”

"Kelli Jae Baeli proves herself not just a fine storyteller, but one who’s highly skilled at her craft, both artist and artisan...It’s rare to these days to find a writer whose style is technically so nearly perfect, but who’s also a damned good storyteller... I would apply that comment to Baeli." ~Have Books Will Review

Writers Like Quickies, Too (3 Book Series)
From Book 1:
Need to come up with some fresh, new ways to display your characters’ feelings and movements?

A story without body language is about as exciting as a low-sodium Triscuit. Yet, communicating emotions to readers through body language and other non-verbal clues can be time-consuming. This is why 601 Body Language Ideas for Novels was developed as an abridged read. It’s from O’Neal’s Writers Like Quickies, Too series, created to help you search for body language terms by emotion. It’s a handy-dandy word reference for up-and-coming writers, although experienced novelists may also reap some benefits. Let’s face it, we all require assistance sparking the imagination now and then.

Use it on the go, during your lunch break, for a mean case of writer’s block, for outsourced writing assignments from fiverr, Upwork, or any other freelance or SEO platform as deadlines creep closer—or use it simply because you want to kick butt with the whole “show, don’t tell thing.”
