Layoff Reboot: How I Skipped the Job Search and Discovered What I Love

Layoff Reboot: How I Skipped the Job Search and Discovered What I Love

Courtney Kenney

Life is short. Reboot, create, and live life on your own terms.

This book is for anyone who’s going through a layoff, lost their job, or is thinking of quitting.

“Reboot” your career with this step-by-step guide for discovering what you love to do.

I’m a Project Manager who found myself laid off after
fifteen years at a tech company. Instead of throwing myself into a frantic job
search, I paused, and embarked on a “Layoff Reboot.”

I didn’t know it at the time, but losing
my job was the best thing for me. My layoff forced me to stop and think—deeply. Suddenly my world was upside down.
My safety net and career identity were gone.

It took some time to admit, but I wasn’t happy with what I was doing and hadn’t been for some time.
I didn’t want to find a job just like my old one. I needed a change. But even though I was ready to
take a risk, I wasn’t sure what to do next, or even where to start.

I gave myself three months to figure it out, and put aside my job search, embarking instead on a
process to discover what I wanted to do next in my career.

Those three months, which I used
to break from the 9-to-5 work life and experiment, turned into what I call my layoff reboot.

Join me and learn how I got through my layoff and focused inward to understand what energizes me.

I’ll show you how to use the same project management tools from this book to:

Create an action plan to reboot your life

Combine your past experience with your
most passionate interests

Learn what energizes and excites you,
so you can go after what you want in your next job or make a change
if you’re unhappy in your current job

Love Letter to the Editor: A Four Weddings and A Kiss Novella

Love Letter to the Editor: A Four Weddings and A Kiss Novella

Robin Lee Hatcher

It’s 1885 and five preachers sit around a campfire out West, trading stories of unlikely couples they’ve seen God bring together. This is one of those stories . . .

She’s the best writer the paper has ever had. He’s her new editor. And she doesn’t like it one bit.

Molly Everton is the outspoken daughter of the town’s newspaper publisher. She had the best education her father’s money could buy and she’s a better writer than he is. So when her father passes her over for the position of editor and gives the job to an outsider from back East, she’s furious. But a smart girl like Molly knows she can drive the new guy out of town with little trouble if she plays her cards right . . .

Jack Ludlow came out West for adventure and wide open spaces, not romance. And he’s not intimidated by the beautiful daughter of his new employer. At first he’s just trying to prove to her he is the right man for the job—but before long he’s set on stealing her heart.

“Robin’s stories are always an adventure of the heart! She is one of the premier storytellers of our day.” —Karen Kingsbury, best-selling author

Amanda Flower's Appleseed Creek Trilogy: A Plain Death, A Plain Scandal, A Plain Disappearance (An Appleseed Creek Mystery)

Amanda Flower’s Appleseed Creek Trilogy: A Plain Death, A Plain Scandal, A Plain Disappearance (An Appleseed Creek Mystery)

Amanda Flower

For the first time, you can now get all three novels in Amanda Flower’s Appleseed Creek Mystery Series together in one trilogy book.

The series begins with the Amish mystery novel A Plain Death. After moving to Amish country, new resident and computer whiz Chloe Humphrey must take on the role of detective when she is involved in an accident that is soon after labeled as murder by local police. With God’s help, Chloe and the victim’s brother, a handsome Amish carpenter, must solve the mystery that is rocking this small Amish town. USA Today and New York Times best-selling author Shelley Shepard Gray reported she read the first book in this series “in one sitting” and could not wait to read the next!

The second installment in the Appleseed Creek Mystery Series is the novel A Plain Scandal. Soon after the dust has settled on the “accident thought to be murder” in the first book, we take another thrill-ride with Chloe Humphrey as she attempts to discover who is murdering the Amish and cutting off their hair and beards in Appleseed Creek. Chloe knows from before that finding the murderer and restoring peace to Appleseed Creek is as much her responsibility as anyone else’s in town and she is determined to do so.

It is Christmas time in Amish country, and once again we meet Chloe Humphrey in the final installment of the Appleseed Creek Mystery Series entitled A Plain Disappearance. Chloe has begun to settle in to her life in Appleseed Creek, and is excited to see where her new relationship with Timothy Troyer will lead. Unfortunately, it leads to another murder mystery when the couple discovers the body of Amish teenager Katie Lambright while on their first date. Timothy’s best friend Billy Thorpe is implicated in the crime, and it is discovered he has been living in Amish country for the past ten years under a stolen alias. Now, Chloe and Timothy must find Billy, and either bring him to justice or prove his innocence.

American Flavor

American Flavor

Andrew Carmellini

Andrew Carmellini, two-time James Beard Award winner, acclaimed author of Urban Italian, and executive chef–owner of the hit New York City restaurants Locanda Verde and The Dutch, takes readers on a wonderfully rich and diverse tour through the ingredients and cuisines that constitute American flavor

For most of his life, Andrew Carmellini has been hitting the road, tasting the best of American flavors. Whether on childhood trips escaping from the hard-bitten winters of Ohio to sunny Florida and its fresh citrus fruit, cross-country trips in pursuit of the Great American Breakfast, or five-meal-a-day swings through barbecue country, he absorbed everything he could about regional cooking, American-style, at every stop.

In American Flavor, Carmellini shares the lessons of his culinary life on the road in recipes and stories that get at the soul of how we eat today. Using the traditional regional foodways and the multicultural neighborhoods, global eateries, and ethnic groceries that dot the American landscape as his inspiration, he introduces delectable, enticing dishes that deliver maximum impact yet are surprisingly simple to make. In the book, you’ll find cheese pierogies inspired by the Polish church ladies of Carmellini’s native Cleveland right next to his take on savory-sweet barbecued beef short ribs from L.A.’s Korea Town; seriously smoky southwestern mole alongside savory lamb stew that takes its flavors from Astoria, the historically Greek neighborhood in Queens, New York. Every recipe reflects Carmellini’s laid-back style, midwestern roots, big-city palate, and dedication to great ingredients and serious flavor.

Along with the recipes are true-life tales of Carmellini’s crazy culinary travels across America, into Canada, and even to Europe. Whether he’s hunting ramps with the locals during an extern summer at a Virginia mountain resort or sampling some of the surprising off-menu specials at a hippie café in Vancouver, British Columbia, these hilarious, engaging stories tell the tale of the education of an American chef inside the kitchen—and out.

Entertaining and inspiring, American Flavor is a book that readers will turn to again and again, not only for special occasions and everyday meals, but also as a portrait of real American food in the twenty-first century: sophisticated but down-to-earth, rustic but refined, and always deeply flavored and delicious.

Hunter

Hunter

James Byron Huggins

One of Hollywood’s hottest action-film writers, James Byron Huggins is a master at keeping the action rolling and the pages turning. Here, the author of Cain (“may be the thriller of the year” — BookPage), unleashes a lightning-quick tale that pits a man born out of his time against the future’s deadliest creation.

Nathaniel Hunter could track anyone — or anything — on earth. Now the military desperately needs him for a mission that his ultrasensitive instincts tell him he should refuse. A beast is loose somewhere north of the Arctic Circle. It has already decimated a secret research facility and annihilated a squad of elite military guards. And the raging creature is headed south toward civilization, ready to wreak bloody devastation.

It’s a job that Hunter can’t turn down, but he soon discovers that his prey is terror incarnate, a half-human abomination created by a renegade agency through a series of outlawed genetic experiments. It has man’s cunning, a predator’s savageness, and a prehistoric power that has transcended the ages. And even if Hunter survives its unrelenting hunger for human blood, he’ll still have to confront the grim reality that it may have grown immortal.
