Happiness as a Second Language by Valerie Alexander: “The writing is simple and straightforward, the instructions easy to follow, and the sample situations familiar, touching, often heartbreaking and sometimes hysterical. Reading this book is the first step in your journey towards a lifetime of happiness. Some of the work may seem hard, but with time and effort, you can be fluent in Happiness.” (April 2013)

The Art of Veiling: Awareness by Tantz Aerine & illustrated by Martin Rebas: “When Themya Daryan’s gift of magic manifests itself, family circumstances make her see it as a curse instead of a blessing. She and her widower father ask from her sorcerer uncle to apply to have it Blocked by the Realm’s Council of Five. However, when her uncle takes her there, not only does she not get what she requested, but she realises that she has more than just one gift.” (May 2013)

The Facebook Diet by Gemini Adams: “With over 1 billion people now on Facebook (that’s 1 in every 7 of us) and 34% of all users checking their account before brushing their teeth or hair in the mornings, it seems most can confess to an addictive Facebook habit; whether it’s stalking an ex, faking bathroom breaks to read news, checking-in wherever they go, or art-directing photo’s for the perfect profile pic.” (May 2013)
