I C Publishing’s summer schedule and new author roster is hot, hot, hot! In this post, I’m thrilled to give you a sneak peek of just some of the newest titles we’re working on, due out later this year. In addition, I have a quick and exciting update on my upcoming book, Do You Have a Book in You? ~ Straight Talk to Take You from Concept to Reality, a Free Facebook Chat for budding and seasoned authors on July 29th, and a popular in-person event on August 22nd for entrepreneurs and business owners. First, a few of our summer projects we’re so proud to be a part of:

Final front cover - Showing UPShowing Up ~ Becoming the Me I Want To Be

Christine Wunder Patton is a transformational coach for youth and a highly knowledgeable and gifted speaker for all ages. She cares deeply about young people today and where they are headed in this new world. Since 2008, Christine has been speaking in schools, engaging her student audience about their goals, desires, obstacles, as well as the perceptions they have for their future. She coaches them towards success through a finely-honed self-development program called TransMax21.

Christine’s new book, Showing Up ~ Becoming the Me I Want To Be, melds cutting-edge research with powerful inspiration and hands-on exercises to help each young person open up to his or her true potential. Students, young and old, gain a competitive edge as they look towards today’s ever-shifting workplace and record high unemployment statistics.

Showing Up is an excellent and very comprehensive read for anyone who is seeking new insights on how to best align your life and work for true success.

Front Cover - A Mother's MemoirA Mother’s Memoir ~ Living While Dying

In A Mother’s Memoir ~ Living While Dying, the author, Mary Louise Barber, shares her courageous life—from the profoundly sad and difficult parts of losing four of her children to Cystic Fibrosis, to her amazing attitude and spirit as she has taken each step in her journey.

“In spite of the fact that my children lived with this incurable disease, which would inevitably take their lives at a very young age, they were happy well-adjusted people,” Mary Louise imparts. “I am not sure just how old each one was when they actually realized they would not live to a ripe old age; however, I believe with the way I raised them they were more interested in living each day to the fullest knowing they might not be here tomorrow . . . By telling my story, I hope that people will be more aware of how truly precious every day is, and will be encouraged to live a life that is even more fulfilling for them and their families.”


Heart Linked by Courage ~ Real-life Stories of Challenge, Triumph, and Hope

The long-awaited second edition of Hearts Linked by Courage is in the works. It will feature real-life stories of immense challenge, triumph, and hope, from the York Region and South Simcoe branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association. Much gratitude goes to CMHA and their story contributors for helping us to keep the conversation and hope alive, in part through this series.

The purpose of this book is simple. It is to encourage compassion and kindness in others, and to look beyond what you see or hear.  Everyone has a story, many actually—like the ones in this book, and also like the ones that are not in this book, because we’re not quite ready to share and embrace the pain associated with those experiences.  When we are ready though, we will always have a choice, and there are many ways to heal. Sharing your story is one way, because it helps another know they’re not alone . . . and perhaps it reassures us too.

The first edition of Hearts Linked by Courage can be found here.

We hope you will follow along as these beautiful projects come to life, and share them to inspire others as well.
