Winner of the Book Excellence Award in the category of Anthology, Fear Less: Transforming Fear Into Courage within Relationships, Career, Society, and Self is a reminder that we are not alone in living with fears. Fear is an instinct that can be overwhelming, but it is possible to step into fear, confront and learn from it, and carry on. Fear, in its truest form, keeps us alive; it ignites the fight or flight tendency. We view fear in today’s society as a weakness that causes anxiety and self-doubt—yet all of us experience it, some on a daily basis. It holds us hostage, causing us to miss opportunities or make poor life choices, so how can we regain power and step through fear?
Winner of the Foreword Indies Finalist in Family and Relationships, Dear Love, I’m Ready for You is a collection of stories about the power of love. Not fairytale prince and princess love — real-life love. The kind that challenges you, brings you to your knees, cracks you open, and pushes you to build a better version of yourself, every single day. This transformative love is real and messy and comes in infinite packages. Love is not only for romantics, we experience it within family, friendships, workplaces and hobbies, but where it needs the most attention is in the love for the self. It is the most potent force in the world. When we open our hearts and are willing to be led by and work with this powerful force, miracles will happen.
