NEW RELEASE: Inspirational Author Lauren Merryfield’s “There’s More Than One Way to Be Okay”

For the disabled in America today, inclusion is a big issue. Why do we shy away from someone we can see is blind? Why do we avoid interacting with the disabled? It’s most often because we simply do not know what their lives are like and how to find common ground. Simply by learning what Lauren Merryfield’s life is like, you might find a way to make inclusion a reality in your little piece of the world. Stop procrastinating and read about what a disabled person’s life is really like. Learn what inclusion means for author Lauren Merryfield in her book,There’s More Than One Way to Be Okay. See that her life is not so different from yours. Think about promoting inclusion of the disabled and what that might mean for our society. Lauren Merryfield invites readers to step into her life, a blind woman’s life, and discover how inclusion can improve life for the disabled and for everyone.

There’s More Than One Way to Be Okay:
A Blind Woman’s PURRspective on Life
Lauren Merryfield
ISBN
: 9780989570312
eBook Price: $6.00

Lauren Merryfield has a lifetime’s experience with blindness and disabilities, but she “keeps on keeping on,” as they used to say, and knows how to manage the challenges of a nondisabled world—sometimes alone, sometimes with help. She lives in California and has one human daughter and three feline “kids.”

Praise for There’s More Than One Way to Be Okay

Lauren Merryfield’s book gives a delightful insight into the life of a successful and warmhearted blind person. The ingenious ways she overcomes life’s formidable challenges were a complete revelation to me. The degree of success she has achieved in her life is an inspiration to us all. For a humorous glimpse into an unusual life filled with cats and characters, this is the book we all need to read.

– Elaine “Dusty” Foster, Colorado entrepreneur

This book is not only an interesting autobiographical sketch of the life and experiences of a woman who happens to be blind, but she also shares insights and knowledge gleaned through those life experiences, the education she received, and her own contemplation of life in its many-faceted aspects that should prove helpful to anyone who reads it. I am a braille proofreader by profession and was honored, as Lauren’s best friend, to be asked to help edit the manuscript. I found it to be very entertaining and well written, and I encourage anyone to read this delightful book.

– Rose B., braille proofreader, Nebraska

Funky Little Monkey
by Debbie Buttar

Published by Blue Star Books

Follow the entertaining journey of a little monkey that expresses himself in a unique way! This funny little monkey is laughed at because he is different from other monkeys. What could he do that’s so different? He loves to disco dance! Enjoy Funky Little Monkey in this fun and rhyming picture book as he finally gets his chance to feel accepted in a very unlikely place.

 

Debbie Buttar was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania but relocated to the South after graduating from the University of South Carolina. Debbie and her husband, Dr. Rashid Buttar, live together on their farm with their sons and daughter. The animals on their farm include horses, miniature donkeys, cows, llamas, goats, dogs, cats, and a chinchilla. Her husband’s clinic specializes in effectively treating patients whom the medical community has failed or given up on, with a special emphasis on cancer patients and children diagnosed with autism. A portion of the proceeds of this book go to AMESPA Children’s Research and Treatment Foundation, which her husband started for the medical treatment of children suffering from these and other conditions traditionally considered to be untreatable.

Reader Reviews for Carrie Brock’s ‘Heart of the Diamond,’ a regency romance you won’t forget!

Four and a half stars! An excellent story. – Susan Preston

Enchanting and often amusing . . . I would highly recommend to anyone. – Rachel Emily Ellis
 
An endearing and intriguing fast-paced romance . . . A sweet Regency romance with a cast of entertaining characters. -Tina Williams
HeartOfTheDiamond_Cover

Blake Dylan, The Earl of Diamond, has a heart of ice. The time has come for him to return to England and enact his plan of vengeance, even if it means wedding the daughter of his sworn enemy.

Lady Nicole Langley has vowed she will not marry unless for true love. When she is lured into a compromising situation with a handsome stranger her worst nightmare begins.

Now, to save them both, Nicki must wage a campaign to win the heart of the Diamond.

Full of intrigue, secrecy, twists and turns, and ,of course, a love triangle–but not your average, run-of-the-mill, you-know-what’s-coming saga. No, Carrie Brock brings you on an adventure that will keep you immersed in this 1800’s romance novel till the very end . . . Heart of the Diamond was riveting . . .This is definitely one for the book clubs and a must share with your friends.
-Jolene Cecil

DISCOVER THE KEY TO UNIVERSAL LIVING: ‘Restoring Oneness: The Butterfly Trilogy’ by Petrus

Until now we’ve held ourselves apart from the universe and lived in loneliness and fear. But the key to universal life is given back to us now, and each one of us is free to choose afresh. This inspirational book will serve as a guide to anyone seeking a clearer sense of personal choice as one age ends and a new one begins.

B1 e-book 13Jan05.qxd

“Restoring Oneness” combines the influential spiritual volumes of “The Butterfly Trilogy” by Petrus. The first volume, “Ecstasy in Unity,” heralds the wondrous metamorphosis coming now to Earth, as we regain the realization that all things at their centre are One. Just as caterpillars become butterflies, those who crawl in separation can reconstitute themselves to fly in unity.  The second volume, “Sex in God,” discovers that sexuality is not opposed but rather native to divinity, and that our sexual desire is integral to universal development. The third volume, “Azimuth for New Earth,” further articulates personal and planetary transmutation, and tells how we will make the journey to a New Earth.
