The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2018-01-22T03:58:29Z 10th novel in ‘A Snake is Amongst Us’ series explores Serah Kohw 2018-01-22T03:58:29Z 10th-novel-in-a-snake-is-amongst-us-series-explores-serah-kohw Successful Australian fantasy fiction author, Kristina Evans, has published her 10th novel in her magical realism series, A Snake is Amongst Us. The new title, Serah Kohw | Seer of past souls, is also the first book in the transcendence trilogy where factual travel adventures, romance and the supernatural come together. Serah Kohw is an Australian woman who not only travels the world but travels in different dimensions trying to overcome the spirit of a friend who died but wants to continue to find love through Serah. Serah thought she knew her friend but couldn't see the snake within her until it was too late. The captivating travel romance fantasy novel is set in two worlds, which will appeal to women of all ages who enjoy mythology, spirits, witches, ghosts and time travel. Ms Evans weaves her love of animals into the book, creating a thread that brings to light the need for empathy and the welfare of animals. Adventure storyline Aged in her late twenties, Serah Kohw had never left the shores of her native country, but when she was bestowed a ticket for a cruise to Alaska, she set out on an adventure that saw her travel to Canada, Italy, Switzerland, England, Scotland and back home to Australia -- and the mode of transport isn't always in this dimension! Serah explores a past where spirits interfere with her desire to live in the future and she must spend time deciphering clues and convincing past souls of a better path before she can move on. Kristina Evans grew up in a haunted farmhouse in South Wales, UK, with a clairvoyant grandmother, which exposed her to the spirit world. It was seven years ago that Ms Evans started writing fantasy fiction after becoming bored while working in a shop. Her laptop then became the conduit to allow spirits to share their stories of what they learnt when they lived amongst us. "We live in a world where anything is possible but only some dare to take a chance," said Ms Evans. "With Serah Kohw, in the first of the trilogy, I have turned Serah's dreams into reality where her desire for a soul mate coincides with a fairy-tale romance. "Paths lay before us and every day we decide which one to take. Serah Kohw shows what can happen when the choice is made for you," Ms Evans added. All previous books by Kristina Evans are also titled with a person's name, the first one being Vanessa Smythe with others including best sellers named Juliette Miller, Gavin Macleod (the only male), Rhianon Luna and Aerona Snave. Now a full-time author, Kristina Evans lives on the Gold Coast in Australia with her family and animals. Serah Kohw | Seer of past souls is available from all good bookstores and online (Amazon, Booktopia, etc.) and has an RRP of $24.95. Ends About the author by Kristina Evans: "Reading didn't fit into my busy life, then a moment of boredom brought on a change. A spirit appeared and I found myself travelling to other countries for confirmation of what I was told. Others had knowledge to share and when a soul mate appeared, my diary changed to a story of magic, romance and the supernatural. "There was too much interference so I put up a fight as I believed my spirit was my own. I couldn't accept there was more to my life and an immortal soul could be split, but I couldn't win against the inevitable. My eyes were opened and once the pen hit the paper, I found myself sharing stories from spirits who wanted their stories told. "I'm passionate about animals and the need for them to be part of our lives. "Technology has turned humans into robots who have no feelings but it's the natural and simple things in life that bring a smile to your face, which mainly come from nature. "We need to be grateful for what we have and give thanks every day. What you give, you get back. Caring leads to sharing, which is the emotion that brings on happiness."

North launched her debut novel at a local Headspace event in Mt Isa, North Queensland, to a captive audience of youth and adults alike. Since then, it has been a whirlwind of activity both on and offline as this inspirational author continues to express her creative skill to the world. Following a flurry of interviews through ABC North West and the Northwest Star, three international 5-Star reviews from noted reviewers Readers’ Favorite, and an immediate distribution contract, North has implemented a second print run of 500 as demand grows for the first book in her fantasy fiction series The Halfling. In the later part of 2017, North is not resting on her current success as she prepares to release her first compilation of short stories in the steampunk genre titled A Confabulated Compendium of Anecdotes. Along with Book 2 of The Halfling and a steampunk novel The Secret Diary of Leonardo in development, North is preparing to hit South-East Queensland on a whirlwind tour which includes numerous book signings and attendance of the Brisbane Comic Con event in September. Beginning with featuring at the Rodeo Street Markets in Mt Isa in August, North heads to Brisbane in September where she mixes a series of signings at over 5 bookstores, including franchise leaders Dymocks, before she makes her debut appearance at Comic Con. However, her highlight moment will be when she joins fellow author and MS sufferer, Michelle Heynen, as they scale the Story Bridge to raise awareness for MS.

Kids will delight in joining in the story, telling their teacher or parent exactly what they see on the page—even if they can’t read the story yet. Cassandra Stephens has an innocent, hand-drawn illustration style that children will love and relate to. The simplistic, crayon style will encourage children to create their own puzzling drawings. As the up-and-coming ‘Mem Fox of Mount Isa’, Cassandra Stephens plans to write and release more children’s books in her hometown and insert a healthy dose of young reading material into the local culture. A lover of community, Stephens has donated copies of her book to a number of local organisations, including Mount Isa City Library and Two Little Hummingbirds.

Or gazing through your window and spotting a fluffy white cloud that looked just like a favourite animal? Janet Pattison certainly does, and she re-invigorates an excitement for cloud-gazing in young readers in her debut picture book Fun in the Clouds. Janet was inspired to write her book when, one day, looking skywards, she realised that the sky always has a story to tell. She thought of her son, who suffers from crippling, chronic motion sickness, and thought of how so many sick children are bound to their beds or hospitals, with limited stimulus. Books, and cloud-watching, offer incapacitated children a way to enter a different world—and in Fun in the Clouds, they can find both! The main character takes the reader on a sunny journey through the sky with native Australian animal cloud friends, challenging young readers to look for their own ‘Emmie Emus’ and ‘Koa Koalas’ in the sky. Including a word search, colouring-in page, and other fun activities, Fun in the Clouds is a beautiful, hardcover title for children to enjoy and while away the time with. Janet Pattison is launching her book at the Sensitivity Unit at Craigslea State School on Saturday the 20th of May, 2pm. She is also donating five copies to the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital School.

Experience My Brand author and CEO Joe Tawfik, shows the reader how to analyze, design, and implement a branded customer experience program. The book overcomes the largest challenge facing organizations by providing a detailed guide that will achieve an increase in bottom-line profits and the number of loyal customers. Heralded as the last battleground for competition, customer experience management has become a core strategic imperative for many organizations. Building unique emotional ties with customers that are stronger and difficult for competitors to imitate is considered the cornerstone for organizations to achieve an unbeatable competitive edge in today’s market. Known as “branded customer experience” the association of experiences specific to a brand has created mega organisations such as Apple, Zappos and Amazon. To deliver a great branded experience to customers, an organization must embrace customer experience management as their highest priority if they are to prosper in the future.  Tawfik wrote the book because the large majority of companies are failing to achieve any sustainable value from their customer experience programs, and were wasting their investments on changes that delivered mediocre results. Research undertaken by Accenture in 2015 identified that 77% of firms were not achieving any increases in bottom-line profits from their customer experience programs. With clear data to complement the text, Experience My Brand puts theory into practice in a way that is practical and easily understood. Readers are provided the tools to effectively implement transformational change and create a unique and sustainable experience for their customers. Experience My Brand is a must-have guide for those who want to learn about this increasingly important field and seek to strengthen this critical aspect of their businesses.  The book can be purchased from Amazon or from leading book retailers.  Reimagining Environmental Public Policy in Australia 2017-03-02T01:07:10Z reimagining-environmental-public-policy-in-australia Throughout From Terra Nullius to Beloved Companion: Reimagining Land in Australia author Chris Dalton discusses viewing Land in Australia in terms of relationships, instead of utility. He also develops the case for environmental legislation in Australia to address the rights of the land, rather than treating it as an object to be utilised. Land is an increasingly important part of the Australian psyche and this needs to be reflected in environmental protection legislation. Our Land is no longer just a “Magic Pudding”. Chris has twenty years of experience at senior level public policy development in both the public and private sectors. Research for the book took him five years, and it changed his view of the public policy process. Where previously he placed his reliance on objectivity, science, reason, logic and neutrality he now also relies on the humanities, imagination, and experience to inform that process. The book launch for From Terra Nullius to Beloved Companion: Reimagining Land in Australia will be held at 4pm on the 26th of March at the Brookfield Centre for Christian Spirituality (139 Brookfield Road, Kenmore Hills, Queensland). The book will be launched by Reverend Miriam Nyrene, Chairperson of the Queensland Churches Environmental Network. 5% of sales from From Terra Nullius to Beloved Companion: Reimagining Land in Australia will be donated to Queensland Churches Environmental Network. More information about the book and endorsements that it has received can be found on Chris’ website. “Chris Dalton’s work is a unique and important contribution to the ongoing debates about environmental decision making in Australian society. He offers a rich analysis to help us create a more effective and meaningful process.” – Dr Michelle Maloney, Convenor, Australian Earth Laws Alliance.

She turned her disease into an opportunity to become the best version of herself she could possibly be. Life is about choices, believing in yourself, and having the courage to face all of your fears. No matter what we are facing it’s up to you how you react, what you accept, and what you believe. Marie wrote Dare to Choose with the belief that someday she would have a success story to tell, an inspirational story to cheer people on and help them bear witness to their own journey. She wants readers to understand that no matter what they are facing or going through in life they have the power to make changes and create new miracles in their lives by choosing to change the story they are believing and telling themselves. Marie will be doing an interview on Logan’s 101FM and is planning to partake in as many opportunities as she can to spread her words of change and positivity to as many people as possible.

Writing under a pseudonym to protect her identity, A. J. Mouse decided to publish her personal struggle with DID in order to impart the truth about living with this condition. For over twenty years there had been no more splitting, no one new. Then Anne came along, making alter number ten. This book was created to record Anne’s journey as she learns to coexist with Jade, Peter, Neil, Jane, Zen, Nancy, Ray, Lucy, and of course Mouse—the author of them all. DID/MPD has been explored many times in film and television, but what is it really like living with this condition and what causes it? Author A. J. Mouse rejects the dangerous myths and misconceptions created by the mainstream media. She asserts: We do not change clothes every ten minutes. We are not dangerous serial killers. We are real—all of us. I am. We are. In the book, A. J. Mouse explores the origins of her DID and speculates on how the ‘splitting’ first began. When faced with unbearable trauma, the brain splinters to protect itself so that it can survive. Each alter has their own reason for being and their own story. But all lives stem from Mouse—the original. Anne’s mission is to uncover the reason the alters were brought into being by Mouse, and to finally bring resolution to their life. This book aims to give readers an insight into the reality of this condition and open up the discussion about mental health in our communities. Head to for more information.

Whether it’s watching the latest episode of Peppa Pig or navigating through the back garden jungle discovering new wildlife, iPads can open up a world of exploration, but more often than not, a small chip here or a little crack there means that fun can be cut short.

In a race against time, five travelers arrive, hunting a key that will change the balance of power in their world. Suffrage is an immersive and highly imaginative sci-fi/fantasy story following Jay and the rebels as they fight against the control of the royals. Author Julian St Aubyn Green, has always been interested in stories. Working in finance offered him a unique perspective of the world after the shock of the 9/11 attack. He started considering the ideas of freedom vs. control and the choices we make. Finally, after being pushed by a ‘wondevil’ muse, as well as many supportive friends and fellow writers, he has written his first book, and is hard at work on the second, of what could be a five part series (he knows the ending but is still working his way there!). Julian is highly engaged with social media and has a blog on his website which includes reviews of books, as well as his experience of writing and publishing a novel – all written in his distinct style and including his unique wit. Multiple book launches are planned with one upcoming at the InHouse Publishing building on Kingston Road, Underwood, Queensland on the 4th of March. Other launches around this time include Gold Coast and Brisbane. These will be advertised on his Facebook page. Suffrage is currently available on kindle eBook and will be sold at markets across Queensland as well as online. “Suffrage hooked me to every one of its interweaving narratives, guiding me through new science, inter-world conflict, love, and so many other emotional ties that bind. Jay, as the mysteriouslypowerful protagonist, is a heroine to rival the fiercest of young women. “ – K.R.E ISBN: 9781925497991 Price: $25 Format: Paperback Dimensions: 152mm x 228mm Contact author: Contact publisher: Website:
