World-renowned relationship coaches Ariel and Shya Kane continue to discover and define relationships in their latest book. For more than twenty-five years, this wife and husband team has succeeded in guiding many individuals and couples toward effective communication and personal transformation. With How to Have A Match Made in Heaven, the Kanes not only share many of these often-poignant coaching sessions in print but also point the reader to their website, where videos of the actual conversations can be viewed. This unique approach, designed to illustrate the insights and breakthrough moments of individuals and couples, presents real and practical ways for readers to have their own transformational moments. Based on the Kanes' Three Principles of Instantaneous Transformation, as outlined in their Working on Yourself Doesn't Work and How to Create a Magical Relationship, two previous groundbreaking and award-winning books, Match Made in Heaven moves relationships into a new and satisfying level where couples realize that judgment, resentment, or blame can be overcome by simply living in the moment. Ridding oneself of the need to "change yourself or others" can be, and often is, a transformational moment leading to positive, powerful changes in one's relationships. In this book, you will meet ordinary people from all walks of life who face the same concerns and fears that we all encounter, especially the fear that we will not have a happy, committed relationship with another person. But as they start to grasp the meaning of the Three Principles, they begin to understand that just experiencing life from moment to moment has the profound effect of removing the obstacles and fears that surround them. What's left is often a profound view of the world in a fresh, vibrant, and exciting new light. Ariel and Shya Kane are internationally acclaimed consultants and seminar leaders whose transformational approach allows people to discover satisfaction and increased productivity in all areas of their lives, without working on their "problems." They are expert guides who, with great skill and humor, bring people through the swamp of the mind into the clarity and brilliance of the moment. As Awareness Magazine said of them, "Years of therapy cannot touch what the Kanes can do in minutes."

When Vivianna Post, a free-spirited erotica writer, encounters award-winning author Jasper Caldwell, she finds herself drawn to him in ways she cannot understand. When their differences, literary and sexual, threaten to pull them apart, Jasper rediscovers someone who might have the power to complete them all in every way. Using quotes and references to classic erotic and literary icons, Sex and Death in the American Novel is on one level an unconventional romance and on another a discussion of the merits of erotic literature. Sarah Martinez lives in Seattle with her husband and two children. She is a member of the Northwest Independent Editor's Guild, Senior Editor for Pink Fish Press, and a regular contributor to Line Zero, the quarterly literary and arts journal.
