Silly Things Professional Women Do in Business – Michele Weselake (Edmonton) > The author uses humor to take a look a scenarios that catch professional women unawares.

Thanks to another visionary entrepreneur, Dorothy Briggs, the mentors included in this amazing book have the opportunity to share their success stories with hopes of inspiring others to follow their dreams and live their passion.

Fishing Lessons For Grandpa – children’s full color picture book by Tom Dirsa (Leduc) with illustrations by Matthew McClatchie (Sherwood Park) > The author shares tales of his grandson’s life growing up diagnosed with ADHD through simple adventures and heartwarming true stories.

The Theater  - poetry play and photos by Guy Chambers, illustrations by Susan Chambers (Sherwood Park) > Life is a large theater stage. Everyone has a particular role to play. Some have been given lucky roles, while others have unfortunate roles. This is a story of Daniel - he has hopes and dreams of crawling out of the backstage to take a headliner role on the stage - is there a better life?

This Is Me – My Life, My Memories – a memoir by Olga Hryb Lalonde (Sherwood Park) > “The names are REAL; the places are REAL; just like the REAL life I lived.” The author shares her experiences through high points, valleys, laughs, and sorrows—all of which she claims to have woven themselves into quite a few years of eventful living. Olga relives her life as a tribute to her son, Perry.

Mischief Mischief - by Beth Rowe (Sherwood Park) Detective Moran is at a loss to explain the mysterious disappearance of a local student when he investigates the recovery of an antique statue. The boy’s friends all have a story—one of seeing an unexplained “shadow” and, the only thing they agree on, is that it appears to float and... they are afraid of it. 

I Am Edmonton – fiction based on the true beginnings of a dear young city by Malcolm Mills (Red Deer) > the author intertwines fact and fiction to bring to you a new perspective of growth and change – sharing the story from Edmonton's point of view… by our soul and our spirit, we are all Edmonton.

Things Were Going Fine… Till We Hit the Rapids by Barbie-Jo Smith (Chestermere) > a collection of poignant and hilarious short stories and embedded poems, based on real life experiences. The title has a double meaning - we can literally hit the rapids on a boat ride down a river and we can figuratively hit the rapids on our journey down the river of life. 

Fly on the Wall another suspense-filled adventure that takes us through time by J.E. McKnight (Gibbons) > Sean’s amazing invention could change the world, but limitations to what they can do with it leave them at a loss as to how they are able to right a wrong. Will they be able to use anything they find to convince anyone of the truth?

A Journey of Truth - Book II - by Linda J. Pedley (Sherwood Park) > The second YA adventure novella in the Journey series brings us to Aisha and Aaslan after returning home from their harrowing adventures in the jeweled city of Istanbul. Get Book I - A Journey of Brothers, and look for the soon-to-be released Book III - A Journey of Desires.
