Young Jane Austen: Becoming A Writer by Lisa Pliscou is set for April 2015, filled with timeless illustrations, appearing to be printed on an antique journal.

What was Jane Austen like as a child? What were her formative influences and experiences, her challenges and obstacles, that together set her on the path toward becoming a writer?

Drawing upon a wide array of sources, including Austen’s own books and correspondence, Wyatt-MacKenzie's editor Lisa Pliscou has created a “speculative biography” that, along with 20 charming black-and-white illustrations, offers a fascinating glimpse into the world of young Jane Austen. Also included is a richly detailed, annotated version of the narrative and an overview of Austen’s life, legacy, and the era in which she lived, as well as a timeline of her key childhood events.

Young Jane Austen aims to intrigue anyone interested in Jane Austen, in writing and the creative process, and in the triumph of the artistic spirit.

Here's a peek inside...

We're releasing a Third Edition of A Better High by Matt Bellace.

Matt has updated and added information to his humorous look at getting naturally high, every day.

Each chapter focuses on a scientifically proven natural high (e.g. laughing, running, helping, loving) and gives funny stories, jokes and exercises for achieving the natural high in your (and especially your teen's) life.

Matt has been a youth motivational speaker and stand-up comedian since 1995. Matt has a Ph.D. in clinical neuropsychology from Drexel University and is a member of the National Speakers Association. His "How to Get High Naturally" program encourages over a hundred thousand students a year to pursue natural highs and make healthy choices. Matt was a recurring comedian on truTV's "The Smoking Gun Presents." His stand up can be heard (and requested) on Sirius XM's Comedy Channels.
