Lord, Please Meet Me in the Laundry Room by Barbara Curtis



The subtitle for this book is "Heavenly Help for Earthly Moms." Let me start by saying that if you are a harried mom looking for some respite from your tasks, pick up this book. Barbara Curtis writes for real women, and takes you on a spiritual journey, teaching you about God and His grace along the way.

Without sounding preachy or overly sentimental, Curtis uses touches of humor to lighten the load, and soon you realize that you can meet God in the garden, the minivan, and yes - even in the laundry room. "...God is bigger than any place I set aside to meet Him and as near as I invite Him to be."

I highly recommend Lord, Please Meet Me in the Laundry Room.

How to Be Your Own Publicist by Jessica Hatchigan



This book begins by explaining the basics of generating publicity, and then takes the reader step by step through the processes. From creating a 'hook' for your product to crafting news releases and pitch letters, Hatchigan covers it all. Bonus Points - concise tips with real life examples of strategies that work, are scattered throughout the book. Easy to use templates help the amateur, and even a professional could use the book as a quick guide to prepare for television and radio appearances and use the many resources in the back of the book. As an author, I intend to implement many of the suggestions in How to Be Your Own Publicist, and recommend the book to anyone like myself - someone eager to maximize publicity efforts.
