Sue Spitler

Slow-cookers are a great complement to today’s busy lifestyles. Once the ingredients are added, the virtually meal cooks itself. This collection brings together a huge number and variety of recipes that show off the value, ease, and versatility — not to mention delicious taste — of this cooking method. Seasoned cookbook author Sue Spitler covers every aspect of using slow-cookers. The book explains the various kinds and sizes of cookers, from 1-1/2 quarts to seven quarts, and shows what recipes work best in each type. From there, readers learn to prepare all the necessary ingredients beforehand so that they can refrigerate the food and the crock for anywhere from hours to overnight and then plug the appliance in when it’s time to cook. Included are more than a thousand scrumptious recipes — all thoroughly tested — for appetizers, entrees, side dishes, breads, sandwiches, and desserts.

Express Book Launch: How to successfully launch a book and reach more readers

Ryan Stevens

*** Kindle Matchbook – Purchase the Print Edition and you can download the Kindle Edition for free ***

*** FREE GIFT INSIDE ***

Launching a book on Amazon is a complex strategy that takes months to be correctly understood.

For most authors on Amazon, this has been the most challenging process of the business.

How can you launch a book?

1. Free launch
2. Paid launch at $0.99
3. Both – Free + Paid

Most of the scammers and all of the so called ‘online entrepreneurs’ will tell you that “self-publishing is a passive income stream – you only do it once and then you’re done – money will start rolling in over and over again, month after month. “

Now let me tell you the sad truth… Everything you heard is completely WRONG.

There is no such thing as 100% passive income stream – any kind of business needs maintenance, even passive ones. As a wise person once said, “If you’re not growing, you’re dying.”

Once you (successfully) launch a book, after a while, it will start lagging in sales – this means that you will slowly make less and less sales than you would have initially.

The Bible can be hazardous to one’s health if it is read with faulty expectations.

How to Teach Your Children Shakespeare

How to Teach Your Children Shakespeare

Ken Ludwig

A foolproof, enormously fun method of teaching your children the classic works of William Shakespeare

To know some Shakespeare provides a head start in life. His plays are among the great bedrocks of Western civilization and contain the finest writing of the past 450 years. Many of the best novels, plays, poems, and films in the English language produced since Shakespeare’s death in 1616—from Pride and Prejudice to The Godfather—are heavily influenced by Shakespeare’s stories, characters, language, and themes. In How to Teach Your Children Shakespeare, acclaimed playwright Ken Ludwig provides the tools you need to inspire an understanding, and a love, of Shakespeare’s works in your children, and to have fun together along the way.

Ken Ludwig devised his friendly, easy-to-master methods while teaching his own children. Beginning with memorizing short passages from the plays, his technique then instills children with cultural references they will utilize for years to come. Ludwig’s approach includes understanding of the time period and implications of Shakespeare’s diction as well as the invaluable lessons behind his words and stories. Colorfully incorporating the history of Shakespearean theater and society, How to Teach Your Children Shakespeare guides readers on an informed and adventurous journey through the world in which the Bard wrote.

This book’s simple process allows anyone to impart to children the wisdom of plays like A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Twelfth Night, Macbeth, and Romeo and Juliet. And there’s fun to be had throughout. Shakespeare novices and experts and readers of all ages will each find something delightfully irresistible in How to Teach Your Children Shakespeare.

The Available Parent: Expert Advice for Raising Successful, Resilient, and Connected Teens and Tweens

The Available Parent: Expert Advice for Raising Successful, Resilient, and Connected Teens and Tweens

John Duffy

We have a tendency today to over-parent, micro-manage, and under-appreciate our adolescents. Dr. John Duffy’s The Available Parent is a revolutionary approach to taking care of teens and tweens. Teenagers are often left feeling unheard and misunderstood, and parents are left feeling bewildered by the changes in their child at adolescence and their sudden lack of effectiveness as parents. The parent has become unavailable, the teen responds in kind, and a negative, often destructive cycle of communication begins. The available parent of a teenager is open to discussion, offering advice and solutions, but not insisting on them. He allows his child to make some mistakes, setting limits, primarily where health and safety are concerned. He never lectures — he is available but not controlling. He is neither cruel nor dismissive, ever. The available parent is fun and funny, and can bring levity to the most stressful situation. All of that is to say, there are no conditions to his availability — it is absolute.
