I’ve discovered a range of excellent non-fiction books this quarter from writing through depression, to women’s inspirational stories, and more. The beauty of using my platform to help support and promote my fellow authors and connections is the opportunity to add incredible books to my bookshelf.
What books have I discovered during the first quarter of 2021?
It was only fitting that I kicked off the New Year with author and fellow book coach Ann Hobbs, who shared her non-fiction book, Kick Ass Your Life. Ann’s book provides tried and tested methods to help explore your feelings, uncover issues, and lead a more meaningful life.
I was thrilled to share an interview with my book coaching client, Nicola Locke, who smashed her writing goals during the lockdown and published her journal for teenage girls, My Life My Happiness. Nicola’s project reflects the incredible work she does with young girls through her workshops and coaching.
Since publishing my Meditation for Children book a few years ago, I fully appreciate the importance of supporting fellow authors of this genre. Some of these books cover themes and topics that parents, carers, and teachers need in their lives. Julie Derrick’s Hank the Hungry Monster is one such title. Julie uses her fictional characters to delve into children’s OCD and anxiety.
Business networking is a vital part of running my business. So I was delighted when author and fellow book coach and publisher, Ladey Adey, joined me for a chat about her book, Business Networking Online. The power of networking can’t be overlooked, and with everything going digital, it’s never been more important to tap into the benefits of connecting with your business audience.
Depression is a topic very close to my heart. When I connected with self-help author and healthcare copywriter Natalie Roberts, I couldn’t resist supporting her and her book, Write through Depression. Natalie shares the therapeutic benefits of writing as a tool for self-care.
In amongst the author interviews, I shared a few book reviews for some of the incredible books released this quarter. I Am a Woman Who was one such book. This title is the fourth edition published via the Woman Who Network and contains inspirational stories from thirty-one women in business.
Talking about mental health, self-care, and wellbeing is something I do on all of my platforms. Whether it’s my Book Coaching page, where I talk about the benefits of accountability and sharing your story, or my Motivate Me blog dedicated to personal development. It’s always a joy to meet and support fellow self-help authors, and my next guest understands this more than most. Ali Jeffries published her debut book, Dear Parent Carer, a story about caring for a young person with physical or mental health issues and joined me for a chat about writing and publishing her first book.
Please feel free to explore the fantastic books and authors who have taken the time to join me on my author blog. Celebrating independent authors is important to me, and raising their books and brand profile is something I love to do.
