About The New Book Release TitledDaily Gratitude Reflections: 365 Inspirational Daily Guides to Grateful Living.”


Would you like to be a happier, more peaceful, and positive person?

Practicing gratitude each day is well worth the effort. It is the power to transform negative thinking, limited perceptions, low vibration emotions (such as anger, depression, anxiety ), and how you experience life in general. Peace, joy, and a brighter outlook are natural consequences of flowing gratitude.

Uncovering things to be grateful for, even in challenging moments, is a skill most of us need to be taught, and then we need to practice it. Most of us would benefit greatly from having a good example, a wise teacher, and a simple way to practice gratitude each day.

This book is such a guide.

Gratitude mastered, becomes a Super Power of sorts that can transform our perspective and worldview, resulting in more peace and joy and reducing stress.

Deborah Perdue has written five books on Gratitude. She offers online classes and annual retreats to teach others how to live Gratitude in the same manner she used to transform her own life.

Daily Gratitude Reflections is a gratitude devotional loaded with daily inspiration. It is a beautiful, easy read, filled with pearls of wisdom, powerful quotes, the author’s personal reflections, and beautiful, inspiring full-color photos on each page. This gratitude devotional is a lovely guide to becoming happier, more positive, and peaceful, harnessing the power of living with a heart full of gratitude.

“I ‘had never realized how much there really is to be grateful for every day. Deborah’s Daily Gratitudes helped to transform my thinking and fill me with a new sense of wonder.”- Kimberly Bowmen

Author INTERVIEW With Deborah Perdue 🤗
(Courtesy of Awesome Gang Book Site)


What inspires you to write?
Writing about spirituality inspires me greatly. In particular, writing about gratitude, and inspiring others to be more grateful in their lives is very fulfilling to me. Becoming a gratitude aficionado in my own life in 2012 informs me of how very powerful a daily gratitude practice is, and I like to share this knowledge.


Tell us about your writing process?
I tend to write short pieces. When I write, I like best to use pen and paper, and then type on my computer where I also edit. I write daily because I send out Daily Gratitude Reflections and this keeps me always writing which I love to do.


Who are YOUR favorite authors?
Spiritually, I enjoy Mark Nepo, Michael A. Singer, Brene Brown, Caroline Myss, Deepak Chopra, and Wayne Dyer, to name just a few. Fiction-wise, I enjoy modern psychological drama and mysteries. A few authors to name are Kristen Hannah, Judi Picoult, and Susan Clayton-Goldner. I also love Toni Morrison, Anne Lamott, and Maya Angelou. Loved Michelle Obama’s book “Becoming.”


What genre do you enjoy reading for pleasure?

Modern psychological fiction and also modern mysteries.


What advice would you give other writers?

If you love what you are writing about, keep going! Never give up. Writing is a wonderful form of creativity.


How did you decide how to publish your books?

I self-publish through my own publishing company Applegate Valley Publishing. I wanted to publish my first Grace of Gratitude Journal and did, and then others followed. Inspiration gratitude books and one more beautiful journal.


What do you think about the future of book publishing?

Books will always be loved by many. A lot of people like me prefer touching the pages of a physical book. Print books will have their place and ebooks are now popular too.

Lastly, what is one quirky thing readers don’t know about you?

Sometimes my husband has to remind me to be grateful if I’m in a bad mood. LOL!

Catherine “Tink” Mabrey, an up and coming attorney, is shocked by her recent inheritance from her estranged family on the bayou. After her mother died during childbirth, Tink’s father had quickly relocated them to the big city of Atlanta, Georgia. With no memory of her mother, she is determined to learn more about her lineage and decides to visit the bayou town of Kane, Louisiana. Candace, Tink’s co-worker and best friend, agrees to make the trip with her.Before she has time to explore her family’s history, or decide what to do with the declining property, local murders plague Tink’s homecoming.

She quickly finds herself caught in the middle of a multiple murder investigation – and quite possibly, the prime suspect. When Candace retreats back to Atlanta, Tink, with the support of an unlikely cast of characters, sets out to discover clues that have haunted and tormented her family for generations.Could a concealed crime from the 1800’s, or the family’s estate itself, harbor keys to unlocking the past?

ABOUT KIM CARTER

Kim Carter is an author of suspense, mystery and thriller novels. She was a finalist in the 2018 Killer Nashville Silver Falchion Award and recipient of the 2017 Readers’ Choice Award for her book Murder Among The Tombstones. This is the first book in her Clara and Iris Mystery series. The characters in this series are a couple of overly curious widows who become private investigators and were inspired by Kim’s mother and her mom’s best friend.

Her other titles include: When Dawn Never Comes, Deadly Odds, No Second Chances, And The Forecast Called For Rain, and Sweet Dreams, Baby Belle.

Kim’s writing career started after she suffered an illness that made her housebound for a couple of years. An avid reader of mystery novels, she embarked on writing as a means of filling her time. Kim shared those early writings with friends and family who encouraged her to pursue writing professionally. Her health struggles and successes have been chronicled on The Lifetime Television in early 2000, The Atlanta-Journal Constitution, Women’s Day Magazine, and Guideposts.

Prior to her illness, Kim worked in many different capacities in county government ranging from Park Director with Parks and Recreation to the Grant Department with Human Services. But, ultimately, it was her job as a correctional officer that provided her the opportunity to interact with a variety of people from all walks of life. Her experiences ran the gamete of inspiring success stories to tragic endings, much like her mysteries.

She self-published her first book No Second Chances. One of the guest speakers at the launch party she had at the Performing Arts Center in Newnan, Georgia included her close friend retired Atlanta Police chief Eldrin Bell. This connection would become helpful as she started doing more research for other books, this time working with a small publishing house.

Kim started networking and made connections with the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office. Her research has taken her many places including morgues, death row and the occasional midnight visit to cemeteries.

She is a college graduate of Saint Leo University, has a Bachelor Degree of Arts in Sociology. Kim and her husband have three grown children and live just outside of Atlanta, Georgia.

Readers' Favorite


Coach Yourself: The Secrets Used by Master Coaches That Get Results is a nonfiction self-help book written by Kaden James. James is a Certified Life Coach with Expert Rating. While most of us have heard about life coaching, the idea of hiring a life coach seems to be an option reserved for the more affluent person. People may also wonder how hiring a life coach could actually make a difference in their lives. In his book, James explains what a life coach does, and what benefits clients may receive from working with a coach.

He also describes how life coaching can help the client remove the negativity and self-sabotaging behaviors that prevent them from attaining goals and living a happy and fulfilled life. He sets out the importance of life coaching, describes how to connect with your inner self, and helps the reader plan and work toward their goals. Each section of the book is set out as an interactive text with space allotted to allow the reader to work with the material provided and make it their own. There’s also a workbook included at the end of the text.

Coach Yourself is a well-written guide that demystifies the concept of life coaching. As I began reading, I found myself responding to each question and concept Kaden James brought up and actively getting involved in the self-coaching process. While a brief text, James’ book can be a positive, life-affirming, and powerful tool for anyone who wants to change their lives for the better.

The way the author presents his subject matter makes it easy to get started and keep on going — no matter how challenging making the changes needed may seem. His knack for breaking things down into doable chunks can build one’s confidence and clarify one’s skill in seeing and seeking a future designed with purpose and intent. Coach Yourself is inspiring and could be life-changing. Highly recommended!
