Holocaust Exposed by Nigel Woodley

Holo_CVR_3D_72web

My phone rang one day and Nigel was on the other end… from New Zealand! What a joy he was to work with, very upbeat but on a mission… his cover needed to be done NOW! The printer was waiting.

“Nigel Woodley has been the pastor of the Flaxmere Christian Fellowship in Hastings, New Zealand since 1982. …….  It took him years to build up the courage to write such a significant book about the Holocaust, ever wanting to be sensitive to those who suffered during those terrible years. But now the time has arrived. The result is a book he feels will educate the Christian, speak to the Jew, and enlighten all people of every culture regarding the darkest period in the history of the human race.” (taken from his website http://www.holocaustexposed.co.nz/)  “God is in the book!” is Nigel’s declaration.

Dissing Xmas by Brenda L. Barnes

DisXmas_CVR_3D_72webBrenda Barnes had a vision she just had to write about… and that vision is “Dissing Xmas” a book of short tips and thoughts for consideration concerning the Holiday season. Her vision took her to an over turned cart of presents…”Dissing Xmas” is short and sweet and many of it’s messages hit home for any time of year, holiday or not.

“Once Americans discover that Xmas really won’t be ruined if a super-hyped item isn’t acquired, wrapped, and delivered on December 25th  or an expensive, overbooked flight isn’t taken on December 24th, then a richer, purer, and less frenzied holiday may emerge.” —Brenda Barnes, Author

Propology 101 by Greg Palmer

Props_CVR-3D_72webGreg was a pleasure to work with on his book “Propology 101” and his website. He shares his  journey through his own search for a prop-less world.

PROPOLOGY: The science or study of the origin, development, organization and functioning of using props to establish ones status, lifestyle, or character, or desired portrayal of such.

“My goal is to pose to you some very simple questions, and provide you with some information and tools that will help you answer them. Why do you make the choices you make? Are the Props in your life really defining you? Are you living for yourself? Or, are you doing what you think you should be doing? Most importantly; what is it that you really want to do? And what is holding you back from doing that? Enjoy the journey!” —Greg Palmer, Author
