Toni Grant and Serpent Song featured in ‘The Australian’

Toni Grant and her crime thriller/romance Serpent Song have taken hold of many readers and media outlets, and rightly so, as we follow the trail with Francesca Salucci as she investigates the suspicious death of a biker which takes her from Sydney to Rome – all the way into a small town on the Italian Riviera where she reunites with an old lover and she has no choice but to confront her past and origins. Toni Grant wrote this enthralling tale in a mere 8 months with some exceptionally good resources, one being her husband Police Minister and ex-cop with an incredible 23 years experience, Troy Grant.

‘Fabulous Phil’ is talk of the town!

Phil Carman is a name that needs no introduction as an iconic part of Australian Football history, known best by the moniker Fabulous Phil – which also is the name of the debut book by Matt Watson about the football nomad who played for Norwood, Collingwood, Melbourne, Essendon and North Melbourne and had his fair share of adventures on and off the field, including fronting the tribunal more than once for his on-field escapades.

There is a great deal of excitement surrounding this explosive biography, and rightly so!

The Launch of ‘Laughing at cancer’ + The Shtick

 

Ros Ben-Moshe launched her amazing book, Laughing at cancer this past weekend in Melbourne to a large room of guests all enraptured to hear her speak about not only her book but her work with being a health and wellness practitioner and the life of being a laughter yogi. Her book, Laughing at cancer is a unique book as most books about cancer are Q&A’s, outline the latest scientific research advances, are written from a “what to expect” orientation, or in some instances are from a comedic perspective on someone’s personal experience. This book, whilst infused with humour, hope and inspiration also includes some scientific evidence, making the content factually rigorous and is available in all good bookstores now
ISBN: 9781925367843

Alan and Janette. Credit: http://rawveganpath.com/about-us/

First, they came for the world record, now they’re bringing us an exciting and enlightening documentary which details their World Record setting 366 consecutive marathons (while both in their 60’s no less) around Australia and not only covering 15,782kms but also doing it on a raw vegan diet.

RAW The Documentary (based from the popular book ‘Raw Can Cure” by Janette Murray-Wakelin. Brolga Publighing + first published in 2013) sets out to shatter some misconceptions of what one can achieve eating a raw vegan diet. It explores the lives of Janette and Alan as they began to consider the benefits of a raw diet after Janette was diagnosed with cancer and given 6 months to live. Now years on and in their 60’s and healthy as a direct result of their fitness and commitment to ethical diets they want to share the amazing feats they have completed and the experiences along the way – which include the beauty of family, the love they have shared for over 30 years, a lifetime of fitness, the marathons in the great Australian nature encountering cyclones, torrential rain and 44+ degree weather. RAW The Documentary stands to be an informative resource for our awareness of the possibilities achievable on a raw vegan diet and the larger comments on the betterment of the environment, water sources and the considerations of all the species on this planet.
