As this month begins, so does the release of many books this month at WordServe Literary . . . our highlights below include new releases, contracts signed, notable reviews and PR events, new authors to the agency and other news of note by clients and agents.
Congratulations to R. Ruddell Weatherwax and Skyhorse Publishing on the Jan. 4, 2022 release of Training Your Dog the Weatherwax Way.
A training manual for any dog owner using the tried, true, and trusted Weatherwax methods.
The name “Weatherwax” is widely known in the dog world. The author is a third-generation professional dog trainer and owner of Weatherwax Dog Training. The family has trained the original “Lassie” (actually a male named “Pal”), Toto for “The Wizard of Oz,” and also “Old Yeller.” These theories and tactics are applicable to any dog lover and owner, not just those on the big screen!
This is a complete guide to dog ownership and basic training manual using the Weatherwax method, which hasn’t changed in almost a century; though Robert has added a few enhancements over the years from his exposure to other great trainers.
Congratulations to Mike Ashcraft and B&H Books on the March 15, 2022 release of To Be Concluded: How to Prevent Your Past from Piling Up and Find Hope for Your Future.
“To be continued…”
The words build anticipation for what’s coming . . . which is great for a Netflix binge, but not a healthy pattern for our lives. In real life, constant continuation causes our lives to pile up, episode upon episode, with no space for reflection or rest, contentment or closure.
This book is for the too-busy, driven person who’s moving on to the next win, without ever processing how one season of life affects the next. It’s for the person stuck and held back because she’s never done the hard work of getting real closure on a season. When we fail to finish well, we live with a pile of unfinished beginnings. But finished things become usable things because they are a part of the story of God’s grace and faithfulness.
Congratulations to Dr. Daniel G. Amen and Tyndale Publishing on the March 22, 2022 release of You, Happier: The 7 Neuroscience Secrets of Feeling Good Based on Your Brain Type.
Happiness is a brain function. With a healthier brain always comes a happier life.
After studying more than 200,000 brain scans of people from 155 countries, Dr. Amen has discovered five primary brain types and seven neuroscience secrets that influence happiness. In You, Happier, he explains them and offers practical, science-based strategies for optimizing your happiness. Dr. Amen will teach you how to
- discover your brain type based on your personality and create happiness strategies best suited to you;
- improve your overall brain health to consistently enhance your mood;
- protect your happiness by distancing yourself from the “noise” in your head; and
- make seven simple decisions and ask seven daily questions to enhance your happiness.
Creating consistent happiness is a daily journey. In You, Happier, Dr. Amen walks you through neuroscience-based habits, rituals, and choices that will boost your mood and help you live each day with clearly defined values, purpose, and goals.
Congratulations to Kate Crocco and Baker Books on the March 29, 2022 release of Drawing the Line: How to Achieve More Peace and Less Burnout in Your Life.
In order to live a full and abundant life in alignment with our dreams and callings, we first need to become crystal clear on where we draw our boundary lines. But where and how do we draw the line? And how do we communicate clearly and lovingly to those around us where the line is and why it’s important?
With plenty of relatable stories from her life juggling multiple businesses and a full house, therapist and mindset coach Kate Crocco offers eight principles that will help you understand, create, and maintain healthy boundaries in order to find more peace, greater fulfillment, and less burnout. She shows you how to take back control from the whims of other people’s opinions about what you should be doing so that you can align your time and priorities with God’s highest calling for your life.
Stop selling yourself short, waiting for permission, and looking to others for approval to begin living a life of purpose, passion, and personal peace.
