Here is a short description of the book:

Ever wonder what the mind of a teenager is like…especially a rebellious, troubled teenager? The poetry in this book, which I wrote in my teen years, honestly shares my thoughts and feelings when I was a teen struggling to live with my parents’ strict rules. Poetry was my “therapy” at the time.

Get a glimpse into the mind and emotions of a distressed teenager. Learn what it’s like to have overprotective parents and emotional turmoil, and be able to connect with someone who does. Whether you are a parent with a struggling teen, or you are that struggling teen, this book will help you get through your challenges.

Here is the cover design:

Adolescent Angst

In the near future, “Adolescent Angst” will also be available in paperback at Barnes & Noble and other online bookstores, and ebook format at Kobo and other ebook retailers and libraries.

I’m looking forward to learning your thoughts about my newest book!

Kindly,

Christine

“Adolescent Angst” is in the Publishing Stage!

I’m so happy to report that “Adolescent Angst” is in the publishing stage! I’m currently finalizing the details with the publishers and I will provide links once the different editions are live. In the meantime, here is a description of the book and the cover:

Ever wonder what the mind of a teenager is like…especially a rebellious, troubled teenager? The poetry in this book, which I wrote in my teen years, honestly shares my thoughts and feelings when I was a teen struggling to live with my parents’ strict rules. Poetry was my “therapy” at the time.

If you are a teenager and wish to connect with someone who is going through the same tough times that you are, this is the book for you. Poems such as: The Chamber, Expression, Authority, and My “Other” Side, reveal my inner-workings as an independence-driven, identity-seeking adolescent.

This book contains twenty-two free-verse poems, written when I was a teen, and a Foreword, Afterword, and About the Poet, written by myself twenty years later.

Get a glimpse into the mind and emotions of a distressed teenager. Learn what it’s like to have overprotective parents and emotional turmoil, and be able to connect with someone who does. Whether you are a parent with a struggling teen, or you are that struggling teen, this book will help you get through your challenges.

“Freedom from Fat: Part 1”

Yes, there is now a “Part 1” in the title. This is because I decided to make “Freedom from Fat” into two parts: my weight loss journey and my maintenance journey.

I have finished the first draft of Part 1! It is about my journey of losing 100 pounds. It is a compilation of journal entries (from my FatSecret account) and blog posts (from my health blog), which were already edited when I originally wrote them, so a quick proofread is all that will be needed. The book is approximately 51,000 words. I’m excited about publishing it, which, because of my busy schedule with my freelance publishing services career, will be in 2015.

Part 1 ends in the beginning of 2014. Part 2, I’ve just begun. I’ve written approximately 7,000 words towards it. I don’t have an idea of how much time in my life the book will span, but I’m still including what is currently going on in my life in the book. I’m guessing it will include about two years of my journey, so 2016 is the anticipated year that I’ll be finished with the first draft. So you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy Part 1 before Part 2 comes out!

I hope these books will help and inspire others to lose their excess weight and become healthier, and keep the weight off, which is the reason for the book about maintenance, because, essentially, that is the most important part. Anyone can lose weight, but most people struggle with keeping it off. Also, reaching a goal weight is hard too, which the weight loss book will help with.

I hope you will enjoy my two books when they come out. I have other books in the works, some that are farther along than “Freedom from Fat: Part 1,” so you may get to enjoy some more books before that one 🙂

I hope you’re enjoying your journey, whatever it may be!

New News!

It’s been a long time since my last post and that’s because I’ve been working hard on my books. After publishing Articles for the Mind, and republishing my four other books, I became very busy with letting the world know about them – through interviews, book listings on websites, social media, book reviewers, and probably more!

I also resumed editing Chronicles of a Troubled Girl, and started a book of my teenage poetry called Adolescent Angst:

Adolescent Angst by Christine RiceIn addition, I designed a book cover for Freedom from Fat:

Freedom from Fat by Christine Rice

Lastly, I started a newsletter. If you would like to read the first issue, here is the link. If you would like to sign up for the newsletter, which is an occasional email about really exciting news and book discounts, fill out the form in the top-right side of my website here.

I’m really excited about my future publishing projects, and I’m really happy to be sharing the news with you!

New book published – Articles for the Mind

I have good news this week too. I compiled a book of all of the articles I have written and published it. It is called Articles for the Mind. It consists of 58 short articles that are informative and sometimes advising, on the subjects of beauty, health, careers, education, family, pets, financial planning, frugal living, money, food, holidays, home, psychology, self-help, values, and writing. The book is grouped into chapters with those subjects as the chapter titles, so the book is easy to navigate and easy to find what you need. There is also a foreword, an afterword, and an about the author page. The cover is below:

Articles for the Mind

It is published on Amazon (Kindle) and Smashwords. Eventually it will be available at Barnes & Noble (Nook), iBookstore, Sony, and Kobo. It will also eventually be published in print and available as a paperback at Amazon. I’m really happy that all of the valuable information in this book is available to the public. I hope the advice and information helps people.

Thank you for your support. It is because of you that I enjoy publishing books.

Book updates

I have some exciting news to report. I’ve been spending much more time on my books lately. One week ago, I republished my four books with Kindle Direct Publishing and Smashwords. I worked on the formatting all day for three days to improve the look and readability. I also designed new covers for some.

I also republished my books with CreateSpace as smaller-sized paperbacks with attractive interior and exterior styling. However, the paperbacks are not ready yet. I’ve been making edits to them to make sure they look great, and each edit delays the process by at least a day. Right now I’m waiting to hear back from the CreateSpace staff about the covers, because they did not come out the same as the document I uploaded.

But my ebooks are all set and live at Amazon and Smashwords. In the near future, my books will be available in paperback from Amazon, and at Barnes & Noble (Nook), Apple iBookstore, Sony, and Kobo. Below are pictures of the book covers and links to the books:
