After/Before Christmas Plug: A Grand Canyon...

Before Climbing Maya, author Ken La Salle had to face A Grand Canyon, a wasteland of depression, doubt, loss, and misery.In September 2002, Ken left his home and drove to the Grand Canyon to kill himself. The only life he'd ever known was little more than a shambles. He'd lost his wife and now he realized that he really couldn't live without her. His choices were to either continue facing it with self-destruction, drugs, and booze, or… a running start and a jump over the edge to end it all. Ken's story is filled with dysfunctional families, love found and lost, breakups, breakdowns, and remarkable hope. It's the true story of a man lost without love and too destroyed to think he deserves love. But the most amazing part of the story isn't what set him on the road to the Grand Canyon, it's what happened... afterwards...You can pick up A Grand Canyon for the Kindle, in paperback, and in audio from Amazon!A Grand Canyon is also available from iTunes, Barnes and Noble, and many other online retailers.

After/Before Christmas Plug: To a Dreamer...

This book is sent out into the world, addressed to a dreamer. It was written during a three-year period of my life, one that started at a time when I didn’t really believe in dreams and ended with me knowing unshakably the power that dreams have to make our lives better. It is a collection of three shorter books: The Worth of Dreams The Value of Dreamers, In Our Selves, and Dreaming With Open Eyes. Some dreamers will find this book… and one of those dreamers will be you. I hope that you find value in it. I have already learned so much from following my dream. My hope is to help you take that first step in following yours. Then, this book will have done all I hoped. Because it’s only when we look inside of ourselves and find out what we really want that we actually become alive. The power to get everything you want out of life is within you and you can find it if you have the courage to live your dream.You can find To a Dreamer for the Kindle, in paperback, and audiobook on Amazon. Just click this link!

Yesterday's After/Before Christmas Plug: Dreaming With Open Eyes...

(What can I tell you? I got busy.:When we dream of what our lives can hold, we should always dream with open eyes. We should always be aware of the pitfalls before us but, more importantly, we should open our eyes to the dangers that exist should we lack the courage to pursue our dreams. Once we understand our options, we’ll be better suited to do what we need to do to find happiness in our lives. Dreaming With Open Eyes is Ken La Salle’s third collection of essays from the pages of Recovering the Self. As he shares his journey in the pursuit of his dreams, he spotlights the dangers and opportunities in the journey ahead of all of us. Only when we open our eyes can we see the truth of our lives. Dreaming With Open Eyes shows us just what riches our dreams and our lives can hold. You can pick up Dreaming With Open Eyes for your Kindle. Just $1.95!No Kindle? You can still get Dreaming With Open Eyes in paperback!Or download the audiobook, available from Audible, iTunes, and wherever fine audiobooks are sold!
