The Long Body That Connects Us All
Poetry , Reviews / February 24, 2018

  BOOK DESCRIPTION Provocative and profound, Rich Marcello’s poems are compact but expansive, filled with music as seductive as their ideas, and focused mostly on how to be a good man. This is a collection of deep passion and wisdom for fathers, husbands, and sons, but also for mothers, wives, and daughters, many who began with a longing for the things they were taught to desire by their forefathers, only to later discover a different path, one lit by loss and welcoming of the vulnerable, one made of the long body that connects us all.   REVIEW Rich Marcello will make you fall in love with literature again.

The Cosmetics Entrepreneur Manual: The first complete book about starting a cosmetics business
Health, Fitness & Dieting , Reviews , Self Help / February 23, 2018

  BOOK DESCRIPTION Even though this book has a ‘cosmetics’ word in the title, I assure you that anyone can read it and find the information in it useful. Any type of business, if it’s just starting or even if it’s going on for a while. Using the Pareto principle to explain the book, it is made of 20% cosmetics advice and 80% general business advice. I diluted this because many of us think that it is enough to find an e-mail from a laboratory and our job is done. But it barely started. This is why this book covers much more than talking just about cosmetics. Many of us who have had ideas about a cosmetic line aren’t starting from that background and more often than not we don’t have a clear vision what else needs to be done. Reading this book will reveal the details of the process which takes you from your idea to your product. What you need to be, what you must be on the lookout for when dealing with laboratories, about a business plan, marketing and funding. You will get insight into the things you need to do and some hidden costs of doing…

However, he finds deliverance in the form of Alicia who agrees to marry him despite his reputation. Although Gregory is certain that one cannot find love in a marriage between two strangers, love begins to blossom as the pair find themselves drawn to each other. Sneak Preview: “Here we are,” Alicia said softly. “Welcome to your new home.” “Thank you.” Gregory knew what was usually expected – that he and Alicia adjourn to their room and consummate their new union. Their situation was unusual; Jason, as the eldest son, was the one whose bedroom activities hold rather more importance to the estate and the family. Gregory was only here to provide funds. “Gregory.” Alicia stepped in closer, near enough that the heat of her body warms Gregory’s chilled fingers. “Would you like to go to bed?” Gregory tried to answer and was unable to muster up more than, “If you like.” “I can sleep in another room, if you wish.” Alicia…

I read it with my grandkids and they loved not only the story, but also the illustrations (by Mariel Garcia). I thought the text and illustrations worked very well together. Author Chelsetia Davis writes in a wonderful, exciting and imaginative style that guarantees the attention of young minds. If you ever wanted to bond even more with your children or grandchildren, this would be a lovely read to share with them.
