Happy, Okay?

By

Celebrating and Empowering Black Lives and Black Authors

Poetry to Confront Depression, Anxiety, Grief, and Loss

Are the usual anxiety books helping you find a path to healing? No? Try this collection of poetry specially crafted for those dealing with mental health and the people closest to them.

Poetry meets mental health. Paloma is faking it. On the outside, she’s A-Okay. She’s electrified at work, there is a cadence in her step as she walks her dog, she posts memes on Facebook, and she keeps up with most relationships. Looks can be deceiving, however. Inside, Paloma is just going through the motions, and she feels like things are spiraling out of control. But when things are at their darkest, dawn arrives with clarity and focus, and with it, healing. Paloma learns to value small glimmering moments of joy rather than searching for constant happiness, thus building hope for her future.

A manifesto for life. An electric roadmap to healing and a manifesto for wholeness, Happy, Okay?: Poems about Anxiety, Depression, Hope, and Survival, is written in a contemporary style reminiscent of Rupi Kaur and Pierre Alex Jeanty. But this poetry book is not simply a narrative spun in verse. It is an invitation to readers to shake off the stigma and silence of mental health and find strength in the only voice that matters: your own. Whether exploring self-care, social anxiety, or anxiety in relationship, in this inspiring and heartwarming book, you will:

  • Understand how to make happiness a decision, even when you don’t feel it in your bones
  • Find out how to exercise patience and self-acceptance
  • Attract hope and purpose back into your life

If you enjoy poem books or books like HerBlack Girl MagicPillow ThoughtsMilk and Honey, or The Sun and Her Flowers, then you will love Happy, Okay? by M.J. Fievre.

Discover the Life-Changing Power of Free Writing and Journaling

“We all know that journaling can be a powerful self-care practice, Greta artfully shows us HOW.” ―Suzy Reading, Chartered Psychologist, Mind Editor at Psychologies magazine and Author of The Self-Care Revolution

Discover how free writing and journaling can be an incredible way to heal your heart, find happiness, and reconnect with the things that matter most.

Transform your life. Journaling and freewriting can bring you a deeper level of self-knowledge, allowing you to truly know who you are. Heart, Sass & Soul shows you how to develop a writing practice that nurtures inner strength and promotes a rich, fulfilled life.

Recover the joy of creative self-expression. As kids, many of us had vibrant imaginations and our lives were full of creativity. Over time, that self-expression gets lost in the busy routine of everyday life. But it doesn’t have to be that way. The tips, techniques, and exercises for free writing in this book helps you tap into that creativity deep in your soul.

Writing can be your best self-care therapy. Most of us, at some point in our lives, lose something we truly love. That time in-between jobs, friends, relationships, homes, or whatever else, is the “great unknown.” In the midst of loss and grief, you need self-care more than ever. In fact, the best thing to do in these times is write.

Heart, Sass, & Soul is not a journal, it’s a method for writing freely that will change the way you live. Learn to:

  • Overcome self-doubt and develop a new creative identity
  • Transform dark times into something beautiful
  • Find moments for healing yourself without judgement
  • Become empowered with uninhibited self-expression

If you liked books such as Start Where You ArePresent Not Perfect, Craft in the Real World, or 52 Lists for Happiness, you’ll love Heart, Sass & Soul.

Cannabis Cuisine

By

Celebrating and Empowering Black Lives and Black Authors

#1 New Release in Herbs, Spices & Condiments ─ Much More Than Just a Pot Cookbook, Cannabis Cuisine Elevates Marijuana to a Fine Dining Experience

Chef Andrea Drummer is a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu and co-owner of Elevation VIP Co-op, a Los Angeles–based company that caters high-end, intimate dinner parties ─ AND, she is a world class marijuana chef.

Cooking with marijuana. In her cookbook, chef and author Andrea Drummer guides home cooks through an adventure of the palette. Chef Drummer is a firm believer that the food always comes first. Cannabis Cuisine is about the art of marijuana as an ingredient. It's more than a cannabis cookbook. Like a fine wine, cannabis is meant to be paired according to its unique profile. With every dish, she looks to the textures, flavors and scents of the bud before masterfully pairing it with ingredients that transcend the dish. The culinary arts and science of responsible dosage are presented in a way that treats cannabis as one of the best ingredients in the world to cook with. Every item she prepares incorporates the flavor profile of the strain that she is using with what is being prepared, thus the cannabis is just as important as any other ingredient.

Filled with recipes, but more than a marijuana cookbook. Cannabis Cuisine elevates marijuana to the highest levels of cuisine. Never before have recipes been presented like this. From the comforts of southern kitchens to the upscale stoves of Michelin star restaurants, each recipe is carefully crafted to elevate both the dish and the cook.

In this book, you'll learn:

  • The basics of pairing buds
  • How to create unique butters and oils to incorporate in every meal
  • Tips for elevating breakfast, lunch and dinner
  • The secret of marijuana as a flavor powerhouse
  • How to properly dose cannabis infused cuisine

If you are a fan of cannabis books such as EdiblesThe 420 GourmetBong Appétit, or Kief Preston's Time-Tested Edibles Cookbook, you will love Andrea Drummer's Cannabis Cuisine.
