DEBUT?NOVEL IS TIME-BENDING?AND AUTHOR-TREND-MAKING
Wyatt-MacKenzie joins the Romance Fantasy genre with a time-traveling love story, LEMONGRASS?HOPE (Oct. 8, 2014), the debut novel by reformed corporate litigator Amy Impellizzeri. Jacquelyn Mitchard, NYT bestselling author, describes LEMONGRASS?HOPE as "...that fine and fresh thing...a truly new story." Mitchard describes the author: "Amy Impellizzeri is a bold and tender writer, who makes the impossible feel not only real, but strangely familiar." Kirkus Reviews declares LEMONGRASS?HOPE: "A layered, bittersweet romance that questions consequences and explores second chances. ForeWord Reviews, in their Fall 2014 Issue, writes: "Time itself is a villain in this unusual tale, yet the possibility of a dream come true remains on the horizon. Realistic portrayals mingle with strange phenomena in this heady mix of contemporary romance and psychic twilight."
Several artisans are participating in a trendy launch of LEMONGRASS?HOPE. Jill Donovan, founder of Rustic Cuff - known for creating handcrafted cuffs worn by best-selling authors and celebrities including Emily Giffin, Ree Drummond, Jenna Bush Hager, Britney Spears and Miranda Lambert - made a one-of-a-kind "lemongrass hope cuff." Nalana Lillie who founded Book Scents, known for highly scented candles inspired by books and characters, has created a custom hand-poured "lemongrass hope candle" which is a blend of lemongrass, sage and imported African marula oil - straight out of the novel - known for its time-travel properties, to bring the novel's mystical magic into the readers' homes. Book Club members get the recipe for "Lemongrass: Hope in a Glass" to accompany their discussion questions as well. Visit AmyImpellizzeri.com; http://www.amazon.com/dp/1939288533

A?BRIGHT?FINANCIAL?FUTURE is what we all want for our children and this easy-to-follow guide delivers its title's promise with Danny's down-to-earth tips and advice - from chore charts to the magic of compound interest - to use with kids as young as age three all the way up to young adults. Twenty healthy values and habits that lead to financial success, plus budgeting, long-term goals, conversations on college, work, and whether money equals happiness and more - this simple financial wisdom will benefit everyone. Ken Coleman, host of The Dave Ramsey Show Video Channel, author of One Question, reviews: "Danny's engaging style makes this practical and hopeful book a valuable resource families who want to instill wise money habits in their children."

The second Wyatt-MacKenzie book with Annie Burnside, FROM?ROLE?TO?SOUL: 15 Steps on the Awakening Journey (Sept. 17, 2014) is a powerful follow-up to SOUL?TO?SOUL?PARENTING (2010). Annie Burnside was called "the Eckhart Tolle of parenting" by Bill Gladstone, agent to Mr. Tolle. In FROM?ROLE?TO?SOUL the author takes it to the next level with her personal reflections on living consciously as a blended being-both human and soul, simultaneously-in everyday life. Annie exemplifies the notion that, "On the awakening journey, we both come to know who we truly are and come to let go of who we truly are not. There is not much more to it than that." Dr. Shefali Tsabary reviews, "FROM?ROLE?TO?SOUL takes us on a journey into authenticity." Jill Schroder, author of Becoming: Journeying Toward Authenticity, states FROM?ROLE?TO?SOUL "...cuts through the linguistic maze of religion versus spiritual paths right to the chase."

Wyatt-MacKenzie has two titles created by kids this fall. THE?FINANCIAL?ANGEL: What All Kids Should Know About Money (Sept. 1, 2014) was written by 9-year-old Ava Kofke (now 10), who was inspired by watching her dad, Danny Kofke, publish his personal finance books. Ava, the Financial Angel, can teach young children about money in simple terms. Kids from ages four to eleven can learn about saving, spending, giving, debit cards and credit cards. Marie-Claire Moreau from quickstarthomeschool.com reviews: "What a charming introduction to economics for kids! Ava Kofke's book literally has the power to begin steering youngsters toward a lifetime of financial literacy. Families, schools and libraries should all be adding this title to the early-childhood section this year!" Jeff Botch, owner of Friday Night Books, fridaynightbooks.com, reviews: "This book gives kids a wonderful introduction to money so they can make wiser decisions throughout their lives. THE?FINANCIAL?ANGEL comes with my highest recommendation."
