If there were 20 people contributing, the editor would be happy. More than 70 did.
They worked with the suggested themes of career, finances and relationships—and were asked to keep entries to 200 words or less. (More difficult than it sounds.) They embraced the challenge to provide readers with mini-doses of inspiration—whether read in one sitting or one before bed each night.
They submitted their pieces within a tight timeline. They took part in a two-hour editing marathon and watched as their writing was reviewed and polished to shine brighter.
They cheered with every update and marveled at their own ability.
These authors are success stories in themselves.
Now we share with you the results of that weekend: the inspirational essays, narratives and insights about success in relationships, career, finances and life. Our intention is this book will empower and uplift you, too, to be your better self and let your success shine.

Amy, a young bookstore owner who has lived in Christmas Village all her life, has never wanted anything to do with love, convinced it only leads to devastating heartbreak. She should know, too- her father left when she was very young and her mother never really got over it.
So Amy decided she would never get married and instead, poured her heart into running her bookstore & minding the lives of her favorite customers.
But this Christmas season, it looks like Santa has other plans for her. Amy's world gets flipped upside down as gifts begin arriving daily from someone who says he loves her.
Before she can figure out whose sending the gifts, something happens that changes her past, present and future. Does it lead to love?
This sweet traditional romance is standard novella size and is perfect for a cozy night of reading by the fire, with gingerbread tea nearby.
