Author Gabrielle Williams Brings In High Ratings on Goodreads for “The Guy, The Girl, the Artist and His Ex”

Gabrielle WilliamsGabrielle Williams has been receiving tons of praise for her latest novel, “The Guy, The Girl, the Artist and His Ex,” a stylish, sharp and sassy take on love, life, and fine art. Released in April of 2015, the story has been receiving widespread acclaim from its readers and book critics, as it offers an interesting perspective from each of its imperfect characters, and is described as a “must-read” by a five-star rater on Goodreads.com.

More about “The Guy, the Girl, the Artist and His Ex” from Goodreads:

A rock chick.

An artist with attitude.

A girl with a past.

A party animal.

Four lives collide when one of the world’s most famous paintings is stolen. It’s a mystery that has the nation talking, but while Picasso’s Weeping Woman might be absent from the walls of the National Gallery, in other parts of Melbourne the controversial painting’s presence is being felt by Guy, Rafi, Luke and Penny for four very different reasons.

Life, love, art and one giant party intersect in this offbeat comedy about good intentions, unexpected consequences and the irresistible force of true love.

Gabrielle Williams BookAlthough Ms. Williams didn’t complete her education at school, her career is proof that an academic path isn’t the only route to success. She has an impatience about her, which has helped to spark an innovative flame and inspired her to write some of her most pioneering works. She is more interested in getting out there and pursuing her dreams than learning about someone else pursuing theirs. Her personality type is incredibly individualistic, and she doesn’t like doing things the way everyone else does them– she is a firm advocate of taking the road less traveled. Her latest book, ‘The Guy The Girl The Artist & His Ex’, was inspired by the real life theft of one of Picasso’s most famous paintings – The Weeping Woman. In order to achieve an authentic tone throughout the novel, Ms. Williams spent a great deal of time researching the 1980s, art fraud, art forgers and Picasso. She is grateful to have a fantastically supportive husband, as well as excellent friends. When Ms. Williams is writing a book, she goes the extra mile to ensure that the information she includes in the book is accurate for the setting. Her last two books were set in the 1980s, and she did a lot of research to understand current events and incorporate them into the overall tone of the novels. After completing her research, she sits down to write, type her ideas and work on the finished publication.

Ms. Williams has been shortlisted for a number of prestigious awards in Australia, and is interested in increasing her connections. She is also interested in traveling for her work and speaking publicly about how to use humour to hook teenagers in to reading, a subject she is quite passionate about. Her novel, “Beatle Meets Destiny,” was shortlisted for two literary awards in 2010. Her second book was shortlisted for the Gold Inky Award. “Beatle Meets Destiny” was voted as one of the top 50 reads of 2010.

Optimistic Author Julie Vincent Acknowledges Light at the End of the Tunnel in “Travels Within”

Julie VincentThe art and poetry presented in “Travels Within” was inspired in a time when Julie Vincent had been enduring her own personal trials and tribulations, and she was extremely distressed. After having escaped domestic violence, and being embroiled in a battle over housing and her children, she felt isolated, pessimistic and even suicidal. Through it all, she was still fervently committed to and excited by the research she was conducting and the opportunity it presented. It was through this that the art and poetry she was able to create came to be.

From PRWeb:

“Travels Within” (published by Xlibris AU) explores Vincent’s intimate journey of completing her doctoral degree while escaping domestic violence. This involved a monumental struggle for her existence. She considered it as a very dark time, but as Vincent was researching the journeys of people who were in or who had been through their own dark times, it was also a time of exploration of her own and others’ internal turmoil.

This book captures the effect of domestic violence and a history of child sexual abuse on mental health. It travels through the emotional pain of grief, loss, depression, suicide, despair and hopelessness to discover in the face of these difficulties, treasures like strength, hope and light.

“What I hope people find in “Travels Within” is inspiration for their own journey; to not be afraid of the dark times. Even in the dark times, though you may not yet see it, there is a hope, and a future,” says the author.

Julie Vincent - Travels WithinJulie Vincent is an artist, poet, singer, song writer, academic and given the opportunity, a performer. She finished her PhD in Social Theory on mental health service delivery at the University of Melbourne and travelled the world creating art and poetry as she went. She came back and travelled across the top end, camping and creating songs, poems and art works en route. She lectured at Newcastle University for a couple of years and volunteered in orphanages in India and a health project in Uganda and attended the World Social Forum in Nairobi, Kenya. In 2008 she was in an accident that nearly killed her and changed her life. She had a spiritual experience and married an Aboriginal man. She has found herself in Alice Springs volunteering with indigenous kids.

Paul Davies Publishes Weekly Articles through Revolutionary Real Estate Blog

Paul DaviesPaul Davies, a consummate real estate professional, has made a name for himself by churning out an excess of 1,000 property sales and conducting more than 300 auctions over the course of an illustrious career. As the Founder and CEO of the One Agency Real Estate Group, Mr. Davies keeps people abreast of trends and developments in real estate by publishing weekly articles on the company’s blog. He has earned the respect and admiration of his professional peers and those with whom he has worked and collaborated throughout the years by helping real estate agents to set up their own real estate businesses under the One Agency brand, and building profitable, sustainable businesses.

Mr. Davies has written about a number of captivating issues on One Agency’s contemporary blog series. His noteworthy news articles include “Growth in Real Estate Varied Significantly Across Australia 2014,” a depiction of the differences in final quarter growth and year-on-year growth for 2014 throughout the cities in Australia. Another is entitled: “Real Estate Market – How It Fared in 2014;” this article is a revealing overview for both buyers and sellers of what was to be seen in the real estate market as 2014 was capped off, as it pertains to properties for sale, opportunities for buyers to negotiate, and when it was the best time for purchasers to buy.

Mr. Davies pinpoints the single-most important thing that he has learned over the years as the fact that “it’s not how much money you make that counts, it’s how much you get to keep after all the expenses are paid.” That premise, along with his wife Annie’s encouragement, was the motivator behind One Agency.

Clannad’s beautiful ballad “I Will Find You” was the theme song for the box office hit – “Last of the Mohicans” starring Daniel Day-Lewis and Madeleine Stowe. This 1992 historical epic film was based on James Fenimore Cooper’s classic novel.

If it takes a long, long time.

No matter where you go, I will find you

Ian Prattis Releases “Redemption”

“The Lost Manuscript”

Second Blockbuster Book of 2014

“Redemption” is a story of Awakening and has its own story of emergence. It was a “lost” manuscript, first written in 1975, forgotten until spring 2011. The narrative was vivified and refined with hindsight forty years later. It reads like an extended prose poem reflecting the primal forces of nature and of human nature. Check out the book video:

REDEMPTION by IAN PRATTIS

Callum Mor, the epic main character, takes the reader on a deep Hero’s Journey. It opens with his childhood in the Hebrides, islands off the NW coast of Scotland. He draws wonderful mentors to him; his schoolteacher, who lights the spark of a bard in him, animal friends such as an otter, a brutal fisherman who shields his darkness from the boy as he matures. Callum Mor thrives despite the poverty of his home in an island nurturing with gentle humor and adventure. This novel moves from the rhapsody of Callum Mor’s idyllic childhood through tragedies to the derelict zone of his alcoholic drowning out of pain and suffering…

Testimonials for Redemption:

Redemption by Ian Prattis“What marks a great work of art is that it touches the heart and soul. Redemption touched mine very deeply. It is so vividly descriptive of both scenery and people, drawing you into the life of Callum Mor, making you cry for him, cheer for him, and wishing you could continue on his journey with him. It is a book to be read over and over again, from which to take away life lessons and inspiration for our own personal journey. This is a book to share with those who touch your life.”

Lucille Hildesheim, International Harp Artiste

“I loved this book, captivating on so many levels, as the story reinforced my resolve. I have three criteria for a good book… I don’t want it to end, I love the end, and I do not wish to speak to anyone for several hours after I finish it. So, this met my criteria on all these levels!”

Mary Helen Dean, Management Professional, Ottawa, Canada

“‘Redemption’ is a riveting novel chronicling one man’s journey through the stages of innocence, darkness, destruction and transformation. The narrative may be applied both individually and universally. Individuals are suffering all over the world from the chaos that life brings, be it violence, abuse of power, cheating, torture or the destruction that comes with war. What is so exquisite about this novel is the tenderness and honesty with which the author deals with the human condition. Callum Mor draws us in as he demonstrates an intuitive understanding and respect for nature. We are intrigued by his innocence and purity which contrast so strongly with the tragic failings that surround him. When Callum Mor’s journey moves him even closer to the abyss, the author refuses to ‘sanitize’ his experiences. Rather, they are put out there as graphically and tragically as they occur. The story pulls you in and before you know it, the reader is seduced and becomes Callum Mor. As he is redeemed, so are we. ‘Redemption’ is so beautifully written, exploring the human condition in its entirety, even the darkest elements. The author does this with grace, elegance, compassion and without judgment.”

Anita Rizvi, Consultant, Ottawa, Canada

“A magical journey of the struggle towards hope, inspiration and love.”

Tina Fedeski, Executive Director of Orkidstra Canada and founder of The Leading Note Foundation.

“Thank you for the gift of your book, Redemption. It is a lovely read. Elegantly sad. We all have a piece of Callum Mor in us. I certainly identified with many aspects of his journey. So thank you for the enjoyable hours reading about this fine human being.”

Jo Anne Denis, retired federal public servant from the Government of Canada.

Press Release for Redemption:

Triumph of the Human Spirit

Inner strength and resilience conquer mental illness and alcoholism

OTTAWA, ONTARIO – According to the Anxiety and Depression Association, nearly 15 million adults suffer from some form of depression. Professor, author, and distinguished scholar, Ian Prattis believes that the power of inner strength can help these wounded souls overcome their worldly crutches.

“The greatest gift one can be given is that of finding one’s true nature,” Prattis said. “The human spirit is resilient and can triumph over tragedy and psychological dependence.”

Prattis’ new novel, “Redemption” is an allegory for depression and life difficulties that he himself once experienced. The novel, which is set off the northwest coast of Scotland, illuminates startling cycles of maturing and downfall experienced by the book’s main character – Callum Mor – a gifted child, master mariner, derelict drunk, who finally gains wisdom from a hard life’s journey. Callum Mor’s character is epic and takes the reader on a deep Hero’s Journey. His failings and misery are ultimately conquered when he saves the life of a young girl and comprehends the fragility and beauty of human existence.

Redemption is a companion to “Trailing Sky Six Feathers: One Man’s Journey with His Muse,” which was also published in 2014.

Kevin O’Donnell Brings Passion and Perspective to the Legal Field with “Tales from the Oldest Profession”

Kevin O'DonnellAs a practicing lawyer, Kevin O’Donnell had 43 years of law experience in the commercial transactions legal field. In his new, current writing role of a year, he has developed extensive knowledge in published works about people in comical situations. His work now is spending two to three days a week catching up with friends, writing a novel and articles for a newspaper, and developing plots for three or four books.

"Tales from the Oldest Profession" by Kevin O'DonnellMr. O’Donnell just finished writing “Tales from the Oldest Profession,” which is a novel about the law. He believes that law is, in fact, the oldest profession. Even in the most primitive society, there were rules, so people had to administer them and comply with contracts and agreements. His writing is about incidents, stories and characters that have derived from his years in the legal field. He is working on several more articles and books.

Sonia Crystella Publishes “Unlocking the Secrets to Longevity” in Nine Languages

Sonia CrystellaSonia Crystella, a renowned designer, recently published a book titled “Unlocking the Secrets to Longevity,” which was freshly pressed in nine languages. The overall theme of the book is longevity and anti-aging, through science, diet, and metaphysical issues.

In her book, Ms. Crystella explains why she was inspired to write it: “I had an audition at 55 years old for a TV commercial, for a 50- to 60-year-old part, and saw them [producers] laugh at me. [Someone] suggested I write about why I looked so young. It started me thinking about my journey. I was born sick and spent a large part of my childhood and early adulthood in bed. My immune system didn’t function well, although at the time we were not aware this was my problem, after all it was the 1950s. The doctors continued to fill me with drugs and antibiotics, my body’s defense system struggled to cope and eventually it took its toll on my physical and mental health. At 21 years old, after giving birth to my son, I had no option to change my diet and find away to reverse the damage done by drugs and multiple illnesses. I came to learn how to repair my body by alternative ways, the very ways that science is now telling us slows the aging process. I knew I had found a way to heal the cells and slow the ravages of aging. I needed to share my story so others could be inspired to heal themselves and stall the aging process with the knowledge I had come to learn over a 36-year period.”

Sonia Crystella - "Unlocking the Secrets to Longevity"Ms. Crystella summarizes the book by explaining, “In the next 15-plus years one in two people are likely to have cancer. Diet and environmental toxins are aging us and making us sick. Although many do not care about a very long life, they do care about their quality of life. Once we hit 50, the way we have lived our life will start to show if it hasn’t already. Remaining healthy as we go into our twilight years is paramount if we want to avoid cancers and dementia, along with many of the terrible cognitive illnesses most are facing.”

Looking back, Ms. Crystella attributes her success to her determination to heal herself, as well as her good eye for fashion. She became involved in her profession when she started sewing at the age of 7 and learned the manufacturing end of the business from a family friend in the industry. She was sick at a very young age and has been through a lot of illnesses that made her look deeper into natural healing, as the medicines that were given to her were not working. This is a way of life for her now, and she wants to share that with others. The most gratifying aspect of her career has been solving her own health issues and slowing the aging process as a result of utilizing natural health and wellness techniques. This, by far, has been her greatest achievement, as teaching others will bring even greater rewards.

Ms. Crystella was recently inducted into Worldwide Branding and also maintains affiliation with the Australian EpiGenetic Alliance. In years to come, Ms. Crystella plans to do motivational speaking and help others. She will be working on another book regarding the chemicals around us, as well as meditation processes.
