Genre: Self-Help

Why is there so much conflict around sexuality? How does a relationship that began with joy end up feeling like a chore? Why is attraction so seldom reciprocated? And what, if anything, does online dating have to do with love? In The Authentic Lover, you will discover the four great enemies of love: violence, pettiness, vanity, and our reproductive agenda.

If we can overcome these formidable enemies, nothing more keeps us from the vast experience of unconditional love. Starting from the raw data of evolutionary psychology and other modern research, this book takes us on a journey through traditional wisdom, Rumi’s poetry, samurai culture, and the dry humor that comes from firsthand experience. A picture emerges both of the pitfalls we all face as humans, and of the corresponding opportunities we always have at hand, but rarely tap into. The Authentic Lover shows a path for us to realize our birthright to love in a full and spontaneous way, free of unwanted ancestral, cultural, and emotional baggage.

Publisher: Love-Based Publishing
Published: July 2014
ASIN: B00M3CF1NO
Genre: Business, Writing

Do you hate the way sales and marketing copy makes you feel? Sales-y? Inauthentic? Hype-y? Just plain icky? You’re not alone … and there’s a reason you feel that way. It’s because traditional sales and marketing copy (also known as direct response copy) sells by tapping into fear.

But, you don’t have to use fear – you can sell and market your business using love instead. And when you do that, you stop manipulating and twisting arms to get buyers, and instead start attracting, inspiring and inviting your ideal clients into your business.

Ahhh — doesn’t that sound wonderful?

In this book, copywriting and marketing expert Michele PW (Pariza Wacek) teaches you the philosophy and the foundational principles behind selling with love versus fear – the same principles she’s used to help her clients build their businesses over the years. Plus, she includes dozens of exercises so you too can easily implement love-based copy in your own business.

Whether you’re a seasoned entrepreneur or business owner or just starting out, you’ll discover valuable tips and strategies around selling and marketing with love. And not only will you feel great about it, so will your ideal clients.

If you’re a business owner, entrepreneur, expert, speaker, author, coach or consultant who would love to create marketing materials that attract, inspire and invite your ideal prospects to become ideal clients without sounding hype-y or sales-y, then this book may be exactly what you’ve been looking for.

In Michele’s first book, “Love-Based Copywriting Method,” she walks you through the philosophy of love-based copywriting and explains why traditional copy and marketing feels so icky. In this book, “Love-Based Copywriting System” she rolls up her sleeves and walks you though her exact system for writing copy that converts without feeling sleazy.

You’ll discover exercises, examples, templates and more — in fact, it’s designed to be a “copywriting course in a book.” You’ll get detailed, step-by-step teachings of everything from headlines to features and benefits to presenting your offer and more, so if you follow along and complete the exercises, by the end of the book, you’ve got your copy created.

Self-Help/Sexuality – Making Out Like a Virgin

Making Out Like a VirginMaking Out Like a Virgin
Sex, Desire & Intimacy After Sexual Trauma
Edited By Catriona McHardy and Cathy Plourde
Publisher: Portlyn Media
Release Date: October 18, 2016
ISBN: 978-1944568009
Pages: 186
Genre: Self-help, sexuality, memoir

Making Out Like a Virgin: Sex, Desire & Intimacy After Sexual Trauma is a unique and moving collection of personal nonfiction essays that detail how each writer has moved beyond mere survival of sexual trauma to unapologetically discover a sexually and emotionally thriving life.

Making Out Like a Virgin is not a collection of victim narratives, nor a healing workbook. Instead, this book is a bold new addition to generations of stories told by survivors. The mission of these writers is not to recount their individual trauma but to detail what has helped them reclaim both body and sexual desire. “Making out like a virgin” serves as a metaphor, giving permission to sizzle and seize the moment. By telling their stories, these writers share their strength and successes found somewhere between the big shifts and small intimate moments, inspiring others while furthering their own healing.

The anthology features 17 contributor–women, men, and transgender–from 5 countries; ranging in age from their mid-20s to their late 60s; hailing from Dubai, Cairo, Dublin, Toronto, Melbourne, and from across the United States.

These writers offer answers to:

– What does it mean to not just survive, but to flourish?
– Is it possible to ever again feel powerful and confident in one’s own body and within relationships?
– Can someone move beyond being limited or controlled by a tragic event?
