Today is the official Pub day for my second book, The Business of Being: Soul Purpose In and Out of the Workplace. I’m pleased to say that it’s a 2018 International Book Awards Finalist in the Self-Help/Motivation category.
The Business of Being is available wherever books are sold, but if it’s not currently in stock at your favorite bookstore, they can order it for you.
If you’re not able to attend one of the following author events, but you’d like a signed copy, please call my local bookstore (Rediscovered Books, details below); and they’ll ship it to you within 24-hours.
With the publication of The Business of Being: Soul Purpose In and Out of the Workplace just two weeks away, I’ve used the month of June to enjoy a much slower version of life before I hit the ground running:
July 11, San Diego, The Book Catapult
July 27, Boise, Rediscovered Books
Aug 12, Crystal Lake, IL, Veteran Acres Park
When I was in Joshua Tree, CA I saw this “hammock roundup” that five people can enjoy simultaneously.
On Eleuthera Island, the neighbors across the way enjoy a solo version of quietude.
And while we don’t have a hammock where we live, there’s a multitude of gentle choices. My three favorites are reading (dive headfirst into a book and don’t surface for a good, long while), restorative yoga, and walking the Boise River Greenbelt. We’re also just a stone’s throw from an arboretum, nature center, and park.
Today—Nov 1, 2016—is the official release day of Note to Self: A Seven-Step Path to Gratitude and Growth. Like a hovercraft, my feet haven’t touched the ground!
In an article featured on BuzzFeed today, Note to Self is listed as one of the 5 Self-Help Books To Keep You Centered During Election Week. Here’s what they wrote:
“Lugging around emotional baggage is something that we’ve all experienced and something that no one enjoys because it can hinder our journey through life. But, in this seven-step guide Laurie Buchanan explores the significance of unpacking that baggage in order to begin a healthier stage of living. This honest and open guide gives readers the knowledge, techniques and real world examples they need to discover a happier version of themselves.” —BuzzFeed
Hosted by The Present Moment, my book launch party is scheduled for Nov 12 at the Civic Center in Libertyville, IL—just north of Chicago. Click HERE for details. I hope to see you there.
I’m delighted to share that Note to Self was selected as a 2016 Idaho Author Award winner in the category of inspiration.
Tonight we attend the awards reception and ceremony, so let’s just say my feet won’t touch the ground for the next week or seven!
Note to Self is additionally in the running for the Nautilus Award. This distinction is for books with exceptional literary contributions to spiritual growth, conscious living and green values, high-level wellness, responsible leadership, and positive social change.
