“CareGiverStory, and Across All Ages; simply stated, the brand is about ‘Wellness’ across all ages. This “Brand” platform continues to drive the body of work to the Best Seller’s list daily and keeps it in the Library of Congress as a resource for Caregivers. Now that Thorndike has made it available in hardcover to colleges and universities, the brand continues to grow and is applicable “Across All Ages.”

The point being that caregivers must take care of themselves as well, especially if they have had the Psychological, Emotional and Financial hardship like Carolyn A. Brent experienced, based on vexatious litigation, a label the California Legislators termed it. Some people never recover from such trauma; the “BRAND” is an advocacy campaign on how to do it and do it successfully, while working to get the laws changed.” — Journalist Angela James, MBA

About the Author: Carolyn A. Brent is an award-winning and bestselling American author and eldercare legislation advocate. Designated as an Editor’s Choice, she was reviewed by the Library Journal as well. Verdict: excellent!

By Carolyn A. Brent MBA | Harliq2015-08-19_1657
Editorial Review
Library Journal
“Not limited to addressing the needs of Alzheimer’s patients, this compact manual from Brent, founder of Caregiver Story and Grandpa’s Dream, two nonprofit organizations geared toward providing comprehensive support for caregivers, walks readers through the crucial issues of moving their aging loved ones into an assisted-living facility as well as discussing emotional, medical, legal, and financial issues with them. Checklists are provided for gathering important information. A particularly helpful chapter delves into the frequent dilemma of dealing with the loved one’s resistance to even talking about these issues. VERDICT An excellent, comprehensive guide to everything both new and seasoned caregivers need to know.” $7.49 Kindle | $13.56 Paperback | Order Now

With Scars On My Soul
by Rameeka Middlebrooks

Rameeka Middlebrooks is a pastor who leads a congregation that continues to grieve the illness and subsequent death of an icon pastor, Hank Hanley.  She is a strong, ethical leader who honors God’s call upon her life in the face of resistance to her as a female pastor, a church that looks backward, and corruption within the congregation.  This novel highlights consequences that occur when leaders and members of deeply conflicted faith communities do not address crucial issues.  Although it is a fictional account of congregational life, it mirrors reality, tells a truthful story, and shares a message for everyone.
