Hardwired to Christ

Graeme Schultz has been writing devotional blog posts for some time and decided to gather 366 devotions together for his latest book.

Graeme went through a challenging time of re-thinking the Christian faith when the oft repeated party lines where inadequate for the real life issues he was facing – in the process he gained an insight into Jesus Christ, his life and death, and their relevance today.

Bookbound was asked to assist him with the design and preparation for print and ebook distribution.

Abbeywood, Ann Stiepcic’s sizeable novel, features Eve La Beste, who was returning home to prepare for a Writers’ Retreat to be held for a week in her B&B home of Abbeywood.

On Saturday afternoon Eve awaited her guests. Husband and wife, Andrew and Maureen McCoy were the first to arrive. The rest of the group consisted of Grace, a primary school teacher nearing retirement and planning to write children’s stories; eighty-year-old Heather who had lots of stories in her and was proud of her age; Margaret who struggled with her depression due to her marriage ending; Jeff, who called himself an out-of-work ‘clown’ and finally always-late, flibbertigibbet, O’Dell who thought attending the retreat would be a hoot.

They settled into writing with varying degrees of success and a few surprises. But it was more than just a writing experience. New doors opened for some, lasting friendships were made, confidence was restored to others and some go on to do further writing.

Unusually, this novel isn’t just the story of the Writers’ Retreat, but also includes the work written by each guest during the Retreat.

Henry Kendall Gardens Bellbird Tales

We produced this book for the editor, Pam Da Costa. It is a quick snapshot of the lives of some of the residents who live in Henry Kendall Gardens, who came from all over the world, and who participate in the day to day life of the village.

The inspiration for this collection of stories of the residents in the village was Alan Hodges’ wonderful history of the making of the Henry Kendall Gardens (formerly Village), but with the realisation that it is not only the buildings that make a community, but the people who live in it.

The villagers have come from different eras, varied backgrounds, with diverse experiences and all sorts of skills to make them the people they are today. And they all have a story to tell …

REA Powerful Listing Presentations

And we pushed through a quick one for the Real Estate Academy who are organising another workshop for real estate agents and needed a workbook to go along with it.

Real estate listing presentations need to be refreshed and changed every 18 months. Not just because other agents are copying you, but to refresh and recharge yourself and your message.

The longer you have been presenting, the more set in your ways you can become. As the fast-paced real estate industry progresses, so must professional agents and communicators.
