Eating Across America


Eating Across America is the perfect book for the travel foodie in all of us.

Eating Across America is a taste bud party of the countrys best food trucks, street foods and cheap eats. Sometimes messy, but always made with love, eating out at local trucks and hole in the walls has become a movement. Daymon Patterson, better known as Daymn Drops on YouTube and as the food correspondent on the award-winning Rachel Ray Show, details the definitive road map to truly tasting Americana. Daymon initially gained popularity on YouTube for his video review of a Five Guys takeout meal, which spawned into a viral sensation. Since then, Patterson's taste for quick and delicious meals has continued to grow, resulting in the mega successful digital series: pickup truck food reviews. Prior to joining Rachel Ray, he hosted Best Daym Fast Takeout, on the Travel Channel, detailing the best spots for quick bite. With recent works featured on The Jimmy Fallon show, Daymon’s culinary journey continues to grow. 

"Having become friends with Daym Drops -- after he hilariously, and quite candidly, reviewed my families Wahlburgers restaurant -- I quickly realized that behind the outrageous comedy of his uniquely outrageous internet food reviews, is an incredibly unique man. A man with a giant heart, matched only by his giant frame and equally giant appetite. But, whether you know him personally or not, one thing is clear to anyone whose laughed their asses off to his culinary critiques - Daym Drops knows food! As a food critic, and as a friend, I give him five stars -- and you better believe the screen is shaking too, foodie fam!"

Difficult Mothers, Adult Daughters


The best news on the planet is that your mother doesn’t have to change in order for you to be happy. In fact, author Karen C.L. Anderson will take it a step further and say, your mother doesn’t have to change in order for you to be free, peaceful, contented, and joyful.

Inspired by her own journey, Anderson’s Difficult Mothers, Adult Daughters: A Guide For Inspiration & Liberation shows women how to emotionally separate from their mothers without guilt and anxiety so they can finally create a life based on their own values, desires, needs, and preferences. Not to mention being able to like and respect themselves during the process. This is what Anderson calls “Alpha Mare” status. 

Through personal stories and experiences, practical tools that can used right away to feel better, and journal prompts, Anderson compassionately leads women who struggle in their relationships with their mothers through a process of self-awareness and understanding. Anderson's work with hundreds of women and her own personal work have resulted in profound growth and transformation. Anderson knows the results are nothing short of miraculous.

Women Who Launch


Dorothy Parker observed, “It’s a man’s world;” the ladies profiled in Women Who Launch would beg to differ. Unlike the matrons of the 1950s-the women who lunched-these kick-ass females left their DNA in the annals of time. Julia Ward-Howe showed what’s good for the goose is good for the gander when she created the Girl Scouts of America. Sara Joseph Hale-authoress of Mary had a Little Lamb- convinced Lincoln to launch a national day of thanks while Anna Jarvis persuaded President Wilson to initiate a day in tribute of mothers. The tradition of these Mothers of Invention continued when, compliments of knitter Krista Suh, the heads of millions were adorned with pink, pussy-cat ears. These women who launched prove-in the words of Rosie the Riveter, “We can do it!”
