What if you saw a woman ready to give birth without any medical help on the scene, would you know what to do? What if you dream of rock n’ roll stardom, and that dream starts coming true? Wyatt-MacKenzie’s Fall 2013 books satisfy a variety of interests, while publisher Nancy Cleary continues to satisfy writers worldwide with an unparalleled publishing experience after 16 years and over 300 titles.

GIFTS FROM THE AFTERLIFE
Sinclair Browning is a traditionally published writer (Doubleday, Bantam, Time Warner) with nine books published in four countries. In 2002, Browning released Feathers Brush My Heart (Time Warner), and sparked a wave of healing for daughters who had lost their mothers. Inspired by a decade-long flood of faith, inspiration, and love, the much-anticipated sequel FEATHERS BRUSH MY HEART 2 features 85 more stories from people who have lost their mothers, fathers, siblings, spouses, aunts, friends, grandparents, and even pets, and received a gift signifying their loved one’s spirit was well. Dr. Jane Greer, author of THE AFTERLIFE CONNECTION, reviews: “FEATHERS 2 is a healing elixir for the heart and soul. It weaves together the wonder and magic of making contact with loved ones on the other side. Sinclair has once again brought to life the remarkable experience and inexplicable phenomenon of afterlife connection.” Annie Kagan, author of THE AFTERLIFE OF BILLY FINGERS, reviews: “These beautiful stories about the creative and unexpected ways our loved ones reach out to us from the other side just might open you to receiving communications of your own.” Visit SinclairBrowning.com.

When Jennifer Slater unexpectedly delivered her own baby in the back of a jeep, the mistakes she made that morning could have cost her son his life. Jennifer realized how little we’re taught about the crucial steps of an extremely fast labor, and after years spent researching childbirth procedures and interviewing other parents who had to deliver their own babies, Jennifer compiled EN ROUTE BABY: WHAT TO DO WHEN BABY ARRIVES BEFORE HELP DOES. In addition to public speaking and presentations, Jennifer works through the Department of Safety training police officers in emergency childbirth procedures. Visit enroutebaby.com.

Tommie Vaughn, lead singer and songwriter for an alternative rock band with four albums, a hot guitarist husband, and two rock ‘n roll kids, releases her second book in a 3-part series of a fictionalized rocker girl’s life. The Frankie Spencer Series continues in THIS ROLL IN MY SOUL as the raucous group of rockers return, swagger intact, hell-bent on lighting up the stages of Los Angeles and beyond. Frankie and company battle their demons versus desires, fame versus freedom, all in the face of major label interest and for the love of rock ‘n roll. Chino Moreno of the Deftones reviews: “Tommie did a kick-ass job creating a memorable musical world. I’m hooked.” Lorraine Lewis, singer from Femme Fatale and Creator-Producer of Ex Wives of Rock reviewed: “Tommie Vaughn nails it in her tale of a girl, her dream and her Hollywood. I could practically smell the Sunset Strip in her delicious read and I raise my glass to the Frankie Spencer in all of us.” Visit TommieV.com.

Annie Burnside’s second book with Wyatt-MacKenzie, set for an October 2014 release, FROM ROLE TO SOUL: 20 SHIFTS ON MY AWAKENING JOURNEY is the author’s personal reflection on living consciously as a blended being—both human and soul, simultaneously—in everyday life. In this follow up to her award-winning book SOUL TO SOUL PARENTING, Annie exemplifies the notion that, “On the awakening journey, we both come to know who we truly are and come to let go of who we truly are not.
