An extended stay in New Zealand determined the content of Gillian Orrell’s first book. New Boots in New Zealand is a humorous, first-hand account of walking the nine Great Walks of New Zealand, encompassing many additional facts, anecdotes and insights about New Zealand’s culture, history and peoples. Deciding to go solo, Gillian accomplished all nine walks in the space of a few months, not only learning all she needed to know about tramping but also a huge amount about New Zealand.

It describes what tramping in New Zealand is really like, offering handy tips and wry observations that you won’t find anywhere else. New Boots in New Zealand is aimed at both first-time and experienced trampers, anyone who intends to go on any of the Great Walks, as well as armchair travellers of all ages.

Reeling from the loss of her sister, Yasmin Alejo takes a job as a cruise ship photographer on board the Radiant Star. All she wants is some time to heal, the way she’s been unable to so far—but her annoying (and annoyingly sexy) boss won’t give her any peace. West Campbell used to care about more than money, but now he has only one goal: squeezing as much profit from the Radiant Star’s photography department as he can, in order to win a prized corporate management job. He won’t let anyone mess with that—especially not the feisty and gorgeous Yasmin, who seems more interested in getting to know passengers than selling them vacation packages. As they sail across open waters, Yasmin and West fight storms, seasickness, and each other, until they can’t deny their connection any longer. Every tantalizing kiss takes their breaths away … but if they can’t get over the past, it might destroy their future. ~ The Sea Swept novels are stand-alone contemporary romance novels and can be read in any order ~ Keywords: photography, romance, new adult romance, contemporary romance, stand alone, stand-alone romance, sexy, beach read, vacation, Caribbean, cruise ship

Linda Johns and her husband Mack share their woodland home with a changing gaggle of injured or disabled wild birds and a lively crew of animals. Their living room resembles an indoor forest, with two dead trees providing perches for feathered guests, and their long screened porch is a practice flyway for convalescents. Edna the rabbit lopes through the house with Blossom, the media-savvy hen. Two goats linger expectantly outdoors while Linda and Mack tend their orphaned or wounded feathered guests. Birds of a Feather is a warm and funny account of four seasons in the life of this passionate yet respectful lover of wild creatures, a woman who offers a helping hand to nature's miracles. With exuberant joy, Johns tells about the many birds she has released back into the wild and the few whose disabilities make them permanent family members.

Growing up in inland Australia, Judy, a young teacher, has rarely seen the sea. But when she flees a rioting classroom one dismal Friday, a dud and a failure, she gets drunk and wakes up on a boat. Overnight her life changes; she is in love with being on the water and in love with Wes Bannister who lives on the boat. Sailing was not something Judy had ever thought about wanting, but now she craved it. Wind was the best teacher she'd had, by fara From then on, Judy believes that the one trusted continuation of herself is with Wes, and always will be, but then events at sea challenge their closeness. Must they become competitors against each other in the push to be equals? It seems they must. A Sea-Chase is a novel that vividly tracks ambition, self-realisation, and lasting love tied up in a sea story. The idea that nobody who sets off to do something alone, without family, friends, rivals, and a pressing duty to the world, ever does so alone, finds beautiful, dramatic expression in Roger McDonald's tenth, and most surprising novel.

Tom Hicks' story begins when he joins the LMS straight from school and follows his early life on the railways in the 1930s, through enlistment, training as a paratrooper, wartime service, imprisonment and his return to the LMS as an engine driver. ??Tom volunteered for war service in 1939 and was initially placed in the military railway of the Royal Engineers. In search of adventure, he successfully applied to join the newly formed 1st Parachute Squadron of the Royal Engineers. The intensity and rigours of parachute training are described in detail, as are the comradeship and humour that came to the fore as this small 150-man unit fought throughout the Second World War as part of the 1st Parachute Brigade. The excitement of the first parachute jumps are relived together with the parachute operations in North Africa, Sicily and the Battle of Arnhem. It was here after nine days' fighting with his mates falling around him that Tom was wounded and taken prisoner. Following the battle, Tom was transported in a cattle truck to Germany where he was used as forced labour in a lead mine until being liberated by the Americans in 1945.??With insightful commentary from Tom's son Norman, this is the story of an ordinary soldier, who was motivated by pride in his unit. It was this that would not let him leave the army when he was twice given the opportunity to return home to support the struggling railway system. Tom has recounted his experiences with a keen eye and the sense of humour that has always enabled him to triumph in the face of adversity.??As featured in The Star (Sheffield), Express & Star (Wolverhampton) and The Barnsley Chronicle

Scheiß auf positives Denken sagt Mark Manson. Die ungeschönte Perspektive ist ihm lieber. Wenn etwas scheiße ist, dann ist es das eben. Und wenn man etwas nicht kann, dann sollte man dazu stehen. Nicht jeder kann in allem außergewöhnlich sein und das ist gut so. Wenn man seine Grenzen akzeptiert, findet man die Stärke, die man braucht. Denn es gibt so viele Dinge, auf die man im Gegenzug scheißen kann. Man muss nur herausfinden, welche das sind und wie man sie sich richtig am Arsch vorbeigehen lässt. So kann man sich dann auf die eigenen Stärken und die wichtigen Dinge besinnen und hat mehr Zeit, sein Potential gänzlich auszuschöpfen. Die subtile Kunst des darauf Scheißens verbindet unterhaltsame Geschichten und schonungslosen Humor mit hilfreichen Tipps für ein entspannteres und besseres Leben. Damit man seine Energie für sinnvolleres verwendet als für Dinge, die einem egal sein können.
