Author Nadia Riell was the winner of the Book Title Contest back in June. She won a slot in this Release Party! So, may I present a beloved friend:
INSPIRING CHILDHOOD, INSPIRING LIFE
Perspectives on Love, Encouragement and Reaching Potential
A Conversational Book of Inspirations by Nadia Riell
Living life whether you’re growing up, already grown up or also in the role of parenting, is certainly not a perfect science. There isn’t a “one size fits all” formula to follow in order to achieve success or happiness in life, yet most of us want to achieve it.
So begins this intentionally compact collection that mirrors the short conversations and simple words that can inspire our lives, from children to adults. As love, friendship, choices and experiences we face impact our world, they are also thought provoking in how we view the world and see ourselves in it.
Refreshing like a quick hug, smile or a pat on the back, this book offers encouragement and joy for reaching potential through life’s lessons, hopes and dreams.

Book Trailer Music
Matthew Swegsda is the fabulous musician who supplied the music for the book trailer for Don’t Judge a Book By Its Magic. I discovered this 27-year-old Scottish singer/songwriter’s music on soundclick.com and it fit perfectly. I think it has just the right tone and style.

Are you ready for another review? Tima’s review is live now. Thank you Tima for the review!
Please visit Tima’s review here: http://bloodgifted.blogspot.com.au/2012/10/a-fellow-writers-release-party-kate.html
For the last seventeen years Tima taught English and History in a high school in southern Sydney. Before taking up teaching she was a practicing archaeologist, working on several digs around the world.
Two years ago she resigned teaching and surrendered to the itch of writing. After many years of reading and correcting students’ creative writing tasks and essays, she decided it was time to write her own.
Review by Laura Pfundt
A big thank you to Laura Pfundt for a generous review! Please read Laura’s review here: http://quillwielder.com/2012/10/27/book-review-dont-judge-a-book-by-its-magic/#comment-1824
Kathleen is the illustrious editor of Don’t Judge a Book By Its Magic as well as The Lustre. God willing, she’ll be the editor of many more of my books! Kathleen is a funny and clever gal who I met here in Seattle, but who has since moved to California and then Las Vegas. It’s a good thing she’s flexible! That benefited my writing this time too, because I tried a completely new style for me. She did a fantastic job and I really appreciate all her hard work.
Kathleen has been editing for more than 8 years and earned a University of Washington Extension Editing Certificate in 2009. She has written and edited accreditation documents and manuals, and edited content for workandworship.com and the Mars Hill Ballard blog. She has beautified writing of all kinds from term papers, resumes, a policy and procedure manual to the parenting book Inspiring Childhood, Inspiring Life in addition to her fabulous work on The Lustre and Don’t Judge a Book By Its Magic.
Her thoughts on her career: “I like to edit all kinds of writing, from instruction manuals to novels. I love that I learn a little bit about a wide variety of subjects, such as education, theology, sociology, the medical industry, parenting, mythical creatures, etc. (This is one of the best things about being a freelancer…I know a little about a lot, haha!)”
Kathleen enjoys reading, traveling, relaxing on the beach, and spending time with friends and family. She lives with her husband and two children in Newport Beach, California. (I can also always get her to forward snarky photos on Facebook about grammar and the English language!)
