Happy New Year! We hope you are starting off the year on a positive note. We finished 2016 strong, publishing two new books in November, and are excited about what 2017 will be bringing.
Six-Word Lessons for Surviving a Devastating Diagnosis was released in November and is the second book by Shirley Enebrad. She is a certified grief counselor and has experienced the heartbreaking diagnosis and death of her son. This book is written with co-author Christine Hurley, whose daughter has also dealt with a difficult medical diagnosis. While it's not a pleasant topic, the book includes vital tools and helpful tips for anyone facing the unthinkable, either for themselves or loved ones. Shirley also wrote Over the Rainbow Bridge and Six-Word Lessons on Coping with Grief.
Also published in November, Six-Word Lessons on Effective Communication, is written by local speaker and former teacher Jenni Butz. Jenni has taken her extensive knowledge as a teacher and verbal communicator and used it to share everything you need to know when communicating. It covers grammar, punctuation, and even has tips on resolving conflict, networking and public speaking by using the most effective communication techniques. It's a great reference manual for anyone who communicates.

Pacelli Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of the 27th book in their Six-Word Lessons series, Six-Word Lessons for Successful Triathletes. The book is written by Lance Carter, who is a triathlon coach and owner of the Everyday Athlete store in Kirkland, WA. Lance is a nine-time Ironman Triathlete who has been training and racing since 1993. He's been coaching triathletes and runners since 1997 with Lance Carter Coaching. As a person committed to a healthy lifestyle, he and two of his friends opened their own specialty and triathlon store, Everyday Athlete, in 2004. His personal mission is "to inspire people to live more fulfilling lives through exercise and mindset elevation." He accomplishes this through his coaching, motivational speaking, and books.
Lance says that when you begin the sport of triathlon, there are so many lessons to learn, because you need to learn three sports - swimming, biking and running. Six-Word Lessons for Successful Triathletes will speed up the learning curve. Triathletes are commonly not aware of the many hard lessons they will learn along the way through trial and error. Reading this book will teach you those lessons in advance - before they are needed!
