New Books planned for 2006

Braiswick has decided upon three new titles for the Spring of 2006, there could be more.
There's Birth to Barmitvah - lyrical verse that tells of the journey to that fateful day when children become men and women.
Several years ago Philip Lund sold thousands of copies of his 'Compelling Selling'. He's now busy restructuring the book to match modern demands, although the basic principles remain unchanged. The book has already helped many. It will be your chance soon.
Eben Reilly has already hit the headlines with her Daughter Dedannan and the Cauldron of Undry. Her next book will reveal a very different side of her complex character as she swings to Vermont, looking at this state through the eyes of the young people who live and work there. Compelling tales that you'll not be able to put down.

Green Wellies and Wax Jackets Book Launch

Thursday 22 December between 12-2pm at Newton Hall Equestrian Centre, Walton, Suffolk Morag Clarke, author of Green Wellies and Wax Jackets will formally launch her new book; Green Wellies and Wax Jackets will appeal to anyone who has ever ridden a horse, attended a riding school, fallen in love with a handsome man.

Imagine Cinderella, the two ugly sisters, and a domineering stepmother transported to a stable yard, and the day-to-day running of a riding school. Add a film crew, one drop-dead-gorgeous actor, and a determined film producer, and you have the setting for Green Wellies and Wax Jackets – a hilarious romp through the world of show jumping and equestrian activities.

Lewis Trevelyan wants a competent rider to star in his latest action film and Ursula Johnson, proprietor of Hollyfield Stables and Stud, thinks she has just the girl (or girls) for him, in the shape of her two ungainly daughters, Vanessa and Caroline.

Lewis, however, has spotted another girl riding the cross-country course – a girl who intrigues him much more, and he will do anything (well, almost anything), to track her down.

A Village Boy

Eric describes life in the community, from 1920s to 1970s. A valuable social history, with several interesting photographs.
