Jack and Dudley go on an epic journey where they encounter many adventures and meet new friends.

“To the Rescue!” is the first in a series of Lumberjack and friends books set for release and sees the two best friends go on a huge journey to assist their Aunt Betty in a new country.

The book is suitable for children aged 2 - 9 years and teaches them about friendship, caring for others and caring for animals, which is brought to life in the colouring book so children can engage more.

The next book in this series entitled “A New Day” will be published later this year.

Excerpt from the book: 

“George, his workmate, came running up and said, “Jack, you have a message from your Aunt Betty in Scotland. You must come and read it at once.”

Jack and George walked back across the yard as quickly as possible. As they reached the office, they went inside and into the warm. Waiting for them was Mr Stevenson, the boss and owner of the timber yard.

Mr Stevenson handed Jack a mug of tea and the telegram. They all sat down while Jack opened the message.

It read: ‘Hello Jack, I hope you’re well. I’m sorry to worry you, but I need help. The roof of my house has been badly damaged in a great storm. It has caused many problems here in Glenlockie. I know you are a very long way away but please help if you can. Love, Aunt Betty.”

***************************************************************************************

The current homeless crisis in the UK has become a major concern across a broad spectrum of society. In particular, homelessness is a tragedy for vulnerable young people, many of whom do not want a hand-out but rather an opportunity to lead a normal life. The issues raised in the book are supported by many real life experiences from young people in crisis. 

The book:
•    examines the current, false perception of youth homelessness;
•    provides a better understanding of the required support needs;
•    identifies deficiencies in the current provisions of housing and support;
•    explores ways in which housing and support can be improved;
•    considers the roles of the state, charity sector, private sector and the public;
•    examines how to create a caring home to effect a transition to an independent life;
•    considers the funding and resourcing to significantly reduce youth homelessness;
•    considers what individuals can do to assist in the process. 

The book examines initiatives that have proven to be successful in other countries and those that have succeeded in the UK. It moves past the current broad intentions of homeless reduction and considers the basis of a fully costed national plan that is monitored against performance, which if publicised should give rise to a greater trust in the process.

All royalties received from this book will be donated to youth homeless charities.

About the Author: 

Barry Stillerman was born in London in 1953. Over the past decade, he has been working with charities in the UK and overseas to reduce youth homelessness. He sees the opportunity for more people to assist in taking action that can permanently reduce youth homelessness and has written “Young, Homeless and Forgotten” with this in mind. In the past, Barry has written financial self-help books including The Stoy Hayward Guide to Personal Financial Planning, Inheritance Tax – A Practical Guide and The Daily Telegraph Pensions Guide

Extract from the Book: 

“It is estimated that there are thirteen times more hidden homeless people in London than those who are sleeping rough and that 225,000 young people have stayed in an unsafe place because they have nowhere safe to call home.  An added problem with this group is that some people may feel that if they have a roof over their head and there are support services available, they are a less urgent problem that other causes. 

The inability for homeless young people to move forward due to the chaotic situation that they find themselves in is not well understood.  Stories about how people lapse into homelessness (for example through drug and alcohol addiction) raise unproductive questions about whether this person (or any homeless person) is worthy of help from society.  While substance abuse is not uncommon, the main reason among youth homelessness is relationship breakdown.

There are various support needs required by homeless young people covering issues such as mental health, substance abuse, poverty and criminality – in some cases a resort to petty crime has been a reflection of the need for food or a room at a hostel to get off the streets rather than a disrespect for property.”

Travelling through the Welsh Marches of yesteryear and today

When Richard Dobson toured the border county of Herefordshire in 2005, following in the footsteps of Victorian artist Henry Thornhill Timmins, he recorded the experience in his subsequent book In My Own Time.

Join him in his latest tour as he describes, in their words, what earlier writers discovered as they travelled through the Welsh Marches, even before the word ‘tourism’ was first used.

About the Author:

Richard Dobson was born 1943 in West Didsbury, a district of Manchester, England.  He spent his early years exploring the English countryside and never regretted missing out on University.  Richard retired in November 2008 after running his own sales and marketing business for 30 years.

His first book ‘In My Own Time’ tells of a journey made on foot through the English midland county of Herefordshire and enjoyed every minute writing it.  His second book ‘Border Crossings – Then and Now in the Welsh Marches’ was even more enjoyable and increased his knowledge and gained him many friends.

Excerpt from the Book:

The custom of touring in England and Wales began in the sixteenth century and gained momentum when turmoil in Europe during the 18th century interrupted the traditions of the Grand Tours. Gentlemen of leisure took to travelling the highways and byways for weeks or even months to discover hitherto undiscovered home territory. Professional travel guides were made available at Post-houses but travellers were often dependent on local men, who might have been expected to recognize any diversions or danger points en route. The terrible conditions of the roads up to the nineteenth century were a constant theme of the writings of Sir Richard Colt Hoare and his erstwhile travelling companion Archdeacon William Coxe. Another, Arthur Young, was so appalled at the state of the roads in Wales during his tour in 1768, he wrote accusingly about turnpikes being of little use.

‘What am I to say of the roads in this country! From Chepstow to the half-way house between Newport and Cardiff, they continue mere rocky lanes, full of hugeous stones as big as one’s horse, and abominable holes. The first six miles from Newport were so detestable, and without either direction posts or milestones so that I could not persuade myself I was on the turnpike.’

“Border Crossings:  Then and Now in the Welsh Marches” is available in hardback from numerous retail sites including:

About the Author:

Bip Wetherell is a retired musician and businessman still doing occasional Gigs with sixties pop group ‘The Tornados’.  He also raises money for ‘ProsTaid’, a local Prostate Cancer Charity, putting on theatre shows and live music, concerts and festivals.  Bip’s first novel was entitled “Chopped” and he is currently working on his second novel “The Reluctant Assassin”.  He lives in Corby, England and is married to Elaine and has four children.

Excerpt from the Book:

“Alan was captivated by the carousel and stood watching it. Billy just sat down on the grass bored.

“I want an ice cream,” said Billy.

“Wait until Lynda has finished. I cannot get you an ice cream as she has the money.”

‘Do you want to go on the carousel, son?” A strange man with a squinty eye had bent down to talk to Alan.

“I can’t, I’ve got no money, and I have to watch my little brother.”

“No problem,” said Squinty. “The first ride is free and I’ll look after your little brother for you.”

‘Would you?” Alan’s reply excitedly.

“Of course I will, son.” Squinty lifted Alan onto the carousel, waited for it to start moving and, looking down at Billy said, “Do you want an ice cream, son?”

Young Billy enthusiastically nodded his head and held the man’s hand whilst they walked away to find the ice cream stall.

Lynda was on the waltzer, Alan was on the carousel.

Lynda, Alan, their mum and Dad never saw Billy again.”

Once in answer to the question, “What was most likely to blow a government off course?” Harold Macmillan is said to have replied, “Events, dear boy, events.”

Two striking examples show how serious and unintended consequences can flow from seemingly unconnected events.

In 1880, Lady Ampthill, the wife of the British Ambassador in Berlin took Crown Prince Wilhelm sculling. He jumped straight into the boat and capsized it, but could not swim. Lady Ampthill saved him. He later became Kaiser Wilhelm II and took Germany into the First World War.  If he had drowned, would the War have occurred?

Ruth Ellis was the last person to be hanged for murder.  She had an unremarkable affair with David Blakely.  It ended in 1955.  She shot him dead on the public highway with five bullets from a revolver. She shot the sixth bullet after he was dead deliberately into the ground which caused a passer-by to be very slightly injured from a ricochet. She was sentenced to death.  Petitions for reprieve were rejected.  She was duly hanged.  The Home Secretary explained “We cannot have people shooting off firearms in the street — she not only killed Blakely but injured a passer-by. I was determined that people could use the streets without fearing a bullet.”  If only she had fired the sixth bullet into Blakely’s dead body, she would almost certainly have been reprieved.

Chance is indeed a fine thing.

**************************************************************************************

The aphrodisiac of power is what causes politicians and others in high places to indulge in secret risk taking, usually involving sex. They have a craving for applause and recognition. They have an astonishing belief in their own good luck in remaining undiscovered. At the same time, they enjoy the excitement of what Oscar Wilde described as “Feasting with Panthers.” The risks they take involve danger and secrecy and are all a potent mix of spice and drug. Lloyd George, Gladstone Asquith, Disraeli and Dilke all indulged.

Newspaper magnates like the Harmsworths and Beaverbrook craved a different power. It was to use their papers to exercise control over politicians and seek to dictate policy. Criminals like Bottomley and Maundv Gregory fed on the gullibility of investors to amass fortunes. David Owen (former Foreign Secretary) described it as the “Hubris Syndrome” namely a concern with image, excessive confidence in their own judgements and exaggerated self-belief, bordering on a sense of omnipotence.

“Ahimsa: A personal journey, via an animal sanctuary in India, to veganism” by Caroline Earle

About the Book

Backpackers might head off without a care in the world, but for Caroline and her husband David, taking a gap half-year in Asia in their mid-50s, they found themselves questioning everything. 

All roads seemed to lead to compassion and respect for all living things, which is the meaning of the book’s title. 

Part-travel, part-memoir, part-philosophy on life, Ahimsa is the story of how a menopausal journalist and a grumpy paramedic find themselves on the other side of the world falling in love with dogs, cows, wonky donkeys and a water buffalo called Flower.

Come with them on their six-month journey through six countries and see why they concluded that all paths in their lives had led to this point.

Ahimsa is a real-life story that is topical and questioning, funny, sad and increasingly angry. It’s an uplifting, thought-provoking account of the route to compassion for all sentient beings, not least through the simple act of cuddling a cow in India.

Ahimsa includes suggestions for book club questions and top ten tips for new vegans.

About the Author 

Caroline Earle is a former journalist with the Jersey Evening Post. The formative years of her 30-year career in local media were with BBC and commercial radio stations. She currently works part-time for a charity which supports people with a disability or long-term health condition into employment. She lives with her family and rescue dog Zippy in Jersey in the Channel Islands.

Excerpt from the book 

[from the chapter ‘Medication for the Soul’]

“Many a time we share a tuk-tuk back to our homestay and, apologising to the driver, laugh that we are wearing our favourite perfume, Kennel No 5.

One pretty black dog is called Michael Jackson. He has the most lovely nature but thanks to a neurological deficit his legs are very wobbly. He moves like he is a stringed puppet who has just consumed seven pints of beer. And when he tries to run, it is cartoon-like in the way his back legs try to get him moving. He never seems to need reassurance but I often give it. 

Later in the week we are introduced to the area where it is not known for sure what, if any, diseases the dogs are carrying. We have had our rabies injections so we are allowed in, but we are advised to exercise more caution. Somehow the reward here is even greater. Sitting for ten minutes with a dog who is in a small kennel for his own protection while he heals feels like valuable work. Some are so mangy they have not a scrap of fur. One bitch has skin so hard, dry and cracked that she looks like she is half-armadillo. Some wag their tail and you know you can relax with them. Others don’t have a tail that can wag any more.”

Mothering is a sacrifice that demands one’s life! In attempting to be an effective mother, one needs to be intentional about strategizing well to fulfill this sacred and honorable calling. Practical mothering is, however, not a permanent state, so it is essential for one to prepare and be ready to step into the other areas of one’s calling when the time comes. Wisdom for Mothers is a God-inspired book from a mother who wants to encourage other mothers to be their very best in their parenting and also to be ready and well-equipped for all the other callings God has ordained them for. Many mothers have fallen into the trap of non-achievement because they were not prepared for their next assignment after their children were grown up and didn’t need their active contributions.

Unfortunately, situations like this have led to despondency, regrets, and disappointments in the life of the mothers concerned. However, with proper planning and preparation, the story can be different. Wisdom for mothers will show you how to balance being a mother and, at the same time, invest in yourself for the next phase. You will learn principles, disciplines, and be inspired to be your very best in all your endeavors without compromising on the most important things of life.

Boy meets girl but in this tale, the heroine, Alice, falls for a youth, Robbie, some years her junior. Alice is in the stages of recognising special abilities possessed by herself and her twin brother Paul, and of coming to realisation of her true nature, which sets her and Paul aside from others.

A romance in the true sense, where love proceeds in the face of adversity, and one which presents challenges to convention.

The tale is set in England in the 1960s and early 1970s.

About the Author: 

To quote:

“I attended grammar school and subsequently pursued a professional career.  I am married with two children. I have always enjoyed participation in sport.  I met my partner on a trip to Paris: we spotted one another on the cross channel ferry, realised where our relationship was headed whilst visiting the Museum of Modern Art and then found ourselves snogging outside the Folies Bergere, so maybe I am a romantic! Otherwise, pretty ordinary!”

Excerpt from the book: 

“There were messages for everyone in the room; in the case of Keith, it was his late grandfather who made contact; Aunt Ellie said that she was shown a burning house and a box of what she thought were coins; Keith confirmed that his late grandfather’s house had burnt down and that he, Keith, had a box of his grandfather’s medals. With Robbie, Aunt Ellie described firstly a tall woman who said she took a special interest in him and whom he identified as his late aunt, his father’s sister; there was also a teenage boy whom Aunt Ellie described as gasping for air and whom all the friends present identified as a late school friend who had drowned on holiday in the Lake District. Aunt Ellie went on to say for Robbie that she saw him in the future surrounded by papers and right at the end she said: “You will be so happy”. For a group of sceptical teenagers, they were mightily impressed by Aunt Ellie’s abilities.

Aunt Ellie came to Alice last: “What can I say to you, Alice, if that be your name, though men have called you by other names?” She paused with a smile. “What can I say that you do not already know? You are revered, the spirits make way for you. Your journey will be fulfilled, you will enjoy fertility”.

“Your spirit world companion is with you, at your feet. Your path may not always be straightforward but your love will ripen and you will know fulfilment.”

Robbie’s friends could not understand what was happening; they heard Aunt Ellie’s words to Alice but the meaning did not sink in; only Robbie gained a clear impression of what was being said but even then, did not fully comprehend.”
