Six-Word Lessons is Looking for New Topics!
We are proud of our 40 Six-Word Lessons books and so appreciate our expert authors. But we are always looking for new and varied topics to add to our Six-Word Lessons series. Who do you know who might want to gain credibility in their field by writing and publishing a book to share their expertise on these topics?
We are currently working on two more books on the topics of Data-Driven Business Decision-Making by Daniel Rubiolo, and Overcoming Abuse and Adversities by Rae Ann Hall.
Six-Word Lessons on Growing Up Autistic, by Trevor Pacelli, is now available in Spanish on kindle!
A friend, Daniel Hollingsworth, who serves in a leadership development ministry in Spain, recently shared with us the lack of information and resources on autism in their country. He knew we had written and published some books on the topic and asked if we would consider a Spanish translation of the books. We are thrilled to publish our first book in a second language and hope this book will help many Spanish-speaking people who are dealing with autism. Many thanks go to Dan and his highly competent and professional translator, Elizabeth Benitez of Madrid.
We are also pleased to announce the release of our 38th book in the Six-Word Lessons series! Six-Word Lessons for a Stress-Free Wedding is written by Seattle wedding planner, Jennifer Taylor, of Taylor'd Events Group. She has been helping couples plan stress-free weddings since 2004. This book includes tips on venues, ceremony protocol, reception options, etiquette and more. Knowing this information up-front can make the wedding-planning process easier, with or without the services of a wedding planner.
We are in production on a book on making the process of home mortgages easier by Lynn Reifert, and one on data-based decision-making by Daniel Rubiolo.
