Stella Bruno escapes into the wild.

Don’t buy your books from Amazon?

That’s okay.

Amazon isn’t the only bookstore in town. There are lots of others.

I’ve decided to make all my books available across a wide range of online bookstores, including my own StreetLib Store.

That means the Stella Bruno Investigates series, which I released exclusively with Amazon, is becoming available across that range of stores.

In fact, The Identity Thief and A Gun of Many Parts have already escaped into the wide. The other titles in the series will be running free over the next couple of months as their exclusive time with Amazon expires.

It’s a fun process distributing a book. It’s a process built on trust and it takes a little time for a book to make its way into stores across the globe – sometimes even I don’t know where the titles are available for purchase.

To celebrate Stella’s escape into the wild, The Identity Thief, the first book in the series, is now FREE in all stores.

Beyond the Words

While the crime writer was busy creating the Stella Bruno Investigates series, the mystic was quietly reflecting on the affirmations he’d shared in I Am Affirmations: The Power of Words.

Now he’s gathered those reflections into Beyond the Words: Reflections on I Am Affirmations and made them available for you to ponder.

You use affirmations every day – whether you’re aware of doing it or not.

Every time you use I am statements you make an affirmation reinforcing what you believe about yourself.

The meaning of the words you use in your affirmations is determined by the context of your life.

 

In Beyond the Words: Reflections on I Am Affirmations, modern-day mystic Peter Mulraney explores what the affirmations he shares in I Am Affirmations: the Power of Words mean to him.

This collection of easy-to-read reflections will expand your awareness of what your affirmations mean and encourage you to contemplate the meaning of the words you use in your I am statements.

Stella Bruno Investigates – season one

Stella Bruno Investigates is a series of quick reads – books designed to be read in one sitting.

They’re stories designed to be consumed in one irresistible gulp. The kind you can read on the way to work or before you go to sleep. Something addictive to distract you while you wait in line. Intriguing mysteries to enjoy on the train, in the car, or on a flight for less than the price of a Starbucks coffee, with ten times the kick.

Set in and around Adelaide, South Australia, the stories focus on the criminal investigations led by Detective Sergeant Stella Bruno.

Stella is assisted by Detective Constable Brian Rhodes, who’s approaching retirement, harassed by Detective Inspector Frank Williams, and distracted by Shaun Porter from the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.

In addition to all the crime, the stories follow Stella’s developing relationship with Shaun and provide insights into her life as a single mother with a teenage son. You’ll also discover some of the benefits she enjoys being part of an extended Italian family.

If you’ve never been to Australia, this series will give you a little taste of life ‘down under’ where you can experience the North Wind as hot and blustery, and winters without snow and ice.

Season one has 6 stories:

The series is also available in two collections for those who prefer their books printed on paper.

Costs of Retail Therapy

A little self-indulgent shopping can’t be bad for you, can it?

We’ve all bought ourselves a little something to distract ourselves from the reality of our lives. That’s one of the benefits of living in a consumer society where there’s stuff to buy and easy access to credit.

My weakness is stationery. There is something about paper and pens I find irresistible. The upside of my self-indulgence is I always have a pen and something to write on. The downside is some of those stationery items can be expensive. Fortunately, I do not turn to retail therapy very often.

But, if your self-indulgent shopping involves fashion accessories or clothes, your retail therapy sessions may cost you a lot more than mine.

It’s a sad fact that turning to retail therapy, instead of dealing with life issues, often leads to serious financial distress, especially when that self-indulgent spending generates credit card debt.

If you’re looking at your credit card statement and wondering how things got to this, you might find Everyday Money Management a useful addition to your library.
