This year marks the debut of The Kindergarten Adventures of Amazing Grace: What in the World is Autism--version 2.0, by Briana and Trevor Pacelli! This version has nearly the same text as the original 2008 copy, but now with all new illustrations and formatting.
This children’s book about autism was written by our daughter, Briana, for her high school senior project, and our son, Trevor, who also was in high school at the time, illustrated it. Earlier this year, Trevor decided to give the book a much-needed makeover, and we could not be happier with the results! It's available in paperback and e-book and will make a great holiday gift for your child or grandchild!
Our 4th book in the "Tell Your Story" series is My Life on the Autism Spectrum, by Tracey Cohen. Tracey has written two other books with us, Six-Word Lessons on Female Asperger Syndrome and Six-Word Lessons on the Sport of Running.
We thoroughly enjoyed working with Tracey on this book that tells her inspiring life story of a difficult childhood of misunderstandings and not being properly diagnosed until age 39. The book is brave and honest, and a fascinating read that will help anyone gain a much better understanding of the autism spectrum, especially in girls and women.
We hope you have managed well during the pandemic and are staying healthy and safe. We are thankful to have been minimally impacted in our business and personal lives and wish you the best in health as we navigate through this season--however long it lasts!
We are here to help with any writing, editing or publishing questions or services you need.
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.
Please let us know how we can help you with any writing or publishing needs.
