One of the great things about being a writer is that your other author friends often send you advance copies of their soon to be bestsellers. And March was a great month for that, as four of my BFFs came out with fresh, delicious books. If you’re ready for a break from Netflix and looking for some compelling reads, these are just what the doctor ordered.
Risk Forward by Victoria Labalme
Victoria is a creative savant, and her book is the perfect demonstration of that. It’s a fun, unique book that breaks the mold to get you thinking in courageous and adventurous new ways. If you’re stuck on something, need to develop a new creative project, or want to hone your lateral and creative thinking skills, you’ll love Risk Forward. (Interview with Victoria here.)
Mindset Reset: How to Retrain Your Brain and Transform Your Life by Lisa Jimenez, M. Ed.
We all need a fresh start now and then. And the best restarts come from resetting your thinking. If you’re ready for a mindset reset to unleash your energy, creativity, and productivity — Lisa’s message is perfect for you and your teams. It’s a great companion read to my Radical Rebirth book. We both want to take your thinking to a higher plane, but approach it in wildly dissimilar ways. (Interview with Lisa here.)
Mujer a Prueba de Balas: Vive tu verdad y regresa a tu Ser by Paula Morelos Zaragoza
My mom raised three kids by herself, so I’m a little biased for superhero moms like her and Paula Zaragoza. (Paula is also binging up three kids by herself; one of them with special needs.) Her new book roughly translated is Bulletproof Woman: Live your Truth and Find Your Self. It’s only available in the Spanish edition right now. If you speak Spanish or want a great gift for someone who does, grab a copy.
A Man at Arms by Steven Pressfield
This is one of Steve’s fiction books, and like his others, a riveting page turner. It’s an epic saga, beautifully written, about a lone reluctant hero, standing up against the Roman Empire as they try to squash the spread of a new faith called Christianity. Writers: read this for the writing clinic it contains. Readers: read this for the heart-pounding plot line. (Interview with Steven here.)
