Blurb

Blurb

This book is written to inspire those who feel confused, and unhappy and struggle to talk about their mental health issues. I have been that person; I have been confused about my career and personal life. It has been a challenge, but it is one that helped me to identify the help I needed to seek. Through doing a lot of harmful things to myself, none of which benefitted me but only made me feel more insecure about myself, I have now taught myself how to deal with my issues.

  • Read more

    This book is a guide to how I opened my mind to the world of possibilities, and I taught myself that it's okay to do things my way for a change. The norm of the world has also made me feel very stressed, depressed, and worried but I will now ensure that any obstacles I face in the future work to my advantage.

    Everything in life is a lesson to be learned or one to be taught to others around us, so never feel as if you have wasted time in your life. You have only become wiser. We have to remind ourselves that we are replaceable so it's time you put your needs and wants first before you regret it. Life is short, live it to the fullest. Don’t wait on others to tell you when it’s the right time, you decide your future.

The 32 short stories about characters living – and dying - in this small country village close to Essex marshland paint a picture of a community from whom no secret is safe and no opportunity to gossip is missed.

  • Read more

    Each story is stand-alone, but they mostly interlink in some way.

    Many of the stories revolve around the pub, where drunken escapades are planned, tall tales shared, and the regulars constantly order “Pint of Old Todger and bag of scratchings, Peggy love.”

recesses-of-the-dark

A perfect city that keeps only the most perfect of citizens and throws the rest away behind an unscalable wall into a wasteland known only as Exile. Lewis, an ordinary university student, somehow finds himself cast away with the other dregs of society into this anarchistic land.

Along with the help of a convicted murderer and an unlikely friendship with a possessive sociopath, he soon loses his sense of morality and becomes lost in a dark and villainous version of himself whilst struggling to survive in a land where he must learn to either kill or die.

thirty five years nurse

Andrew Earnshaw

Having circumnavigated North America in 2009, the author and his doughty pillion rider decide to tackle Russia and Georgia. It’s a test ride really, a pre-cursor to attempting to ride their motorcycle across Siberia. Blocked from entering Georgia, they decide to ride around the Black Sea, heading for Turkey, then Georgia. In doing so they pass through Ukraine and Crimea, before getting thoroughly lost in Transnistria. Their journey, which took place in 2012, took them to twenty-one countries, one rebel breakaway republic and one British Overseas territory - in some cases areas that have now changed forever. There are numerous sub-plots woven into the narrative: discoveries of well-known and lesser-known cultural gems, vignettes of history and geography and the unusual tales of an extremely fortunate mule and a swashbuckling kidnapped rabbit.

flappity

Dee MacQueen

This is the story of a loveable friendly freshwater trout called Flappity, from his birth to his retirement on the river.

Flappity loves to have fun with his school friends and always tries to be fair and kind, which I would like to think comes over in this book.

As Flappity grows older he takes responsibility for his actions which doesn't go unnoticed by the hierarchy of the river.

    In addition there are two lawyers, the Public prosecutor, a Magpie called Madge and a Public Defender a Little Owl called Athené.

    The stories embrace modern social concepts and problems, like immigration, racism, single parenthood, and food banks and as such are an allegory of life as was and is now.

    The stories start with Bobby being evicted from his home, according to Robin law, as he is now considered an adult. They follow his life’s experiences (adventures) in the wood owned by the Grand Duc.

A Sign of Change

Lol Marson

Leaving home after accusations of stealing and hounded by the press, Nigel takes refuge in an old cottage on a country estate. Here he can fulfil a promise and expose the truth, but in the meantime, he needs to stay aloof. This will prove difficult enough with building work being undertaken on the 'Old Manor House' on the estate and at 'The Coopers' public house. Added to this situation, Nigel's inquisitive nature and an impulse purchase, catapults him as a prime talking point by the local villagers. Let's hope it does not detract him from his goal.

My Tormented Mind

Rocky Troiani

This is a true story written in my own words of my life's journey being subjected to child abuse. The programming of a young innocent mind is vital for the adult years ahead. There are many forms of child abuse from physical, emotional, sexual and neglect. The psychological damage in later years if go unnoticed can result in a journey of aggression and loneliness. My insecurities and lack of self-worth took me on a journey into adulthood that created a person I didn't wish to be on a journey I did not want to be on.

White Magic Studios provided the much-needed editing, illustrations, and layout. Hello, my name is Richard Wellesley. When I retired, I took a course in English literature at the Open University. There were six modules, and one of the models was a module on Children’s literature. It was then that I decided that one day I would write my own book for children. The Hedgehog, the Dog, the Donkey and the Little Girl, this delightful tale is available in both hardback and paperback editions and is perfect for children of all ages.

  • Read more

    My daughter Rosanna, who's already a successful author and illustrator of children's picture books, encouraged me to write the story, and White Magic Studios provided the much-needed editing, illustrations, and layout. The result is a beautiful book that I'm proud to share with you. The story follows the journey of a hedgehog who's visited by the ghost of his grandfather, who advises him to leave the hedgerow and make a better life for himself. He teams up with a retired sheepdog and a grumpy donkey, and together they join a failing circus. The friends' brilliant circus acts start to bring in the crowds, and the circus thrives once again.

    As a parent and grandparent myself, I understand the importance of reading enjoyable books to children. Too often, books marketed for children can be boring and uninteresting for adults. That's why I was determined to write a book that would entertain both children and adults. White Magic Studios' beautiful illustrations add an extra layer of magic to the story. For example, there's a circus lion thinking he'll lose his job if the circus closes, weeping in the arms of his surprised trainer 'what will become of me?'. And the hedgehog and the dog trying to help the donkey back on his feet after an unsuccessful 'head over heels' roll down a hill, causing mayhem with local wildlife.

    I believe that with White Magic Studios' excellent help and advice, I have produced a book that will keep the parent awake while sending the children to sleep with happy dreams. I highly recommend White Magic Studios to anyone who has written a book but needs help with the intricacies of the publishing process. Trust me; they're the best in the business. So go ahead, grab a copy of The Hedgehog, the Dog, the Donkey and the Little Girl, and immerse yourself in a world of magic and wonder.

First and Best of All Publishers Unlike the several other publishers I have dealt with, in the past, I found White Magic Studios most approachable, most friendly, and always reliable. They are absolute masters of graphic design and have produced the most powerful, eye-catching covers for all 3 of my books I have been privileged enough to publish with them. Their text formatting is also second to none. I give them 5 star ratings across the board. Harry Aslan (4.8 and 5.0 star rated multiple author)

A Positive Experience

From my first phone call, I was impressed by the polite, friendly voice (John) which explained how White Magic Studios (WMS) help authors to self publish their work. All my questions were answered in full and it did not take long for me to decide on this form of publishing.

Once the process was underway, I also had email and phone discussions with Vrinda and John. I can honestly say I was impressed by their courtesy, helpfulness and friendliness in all my contacts. I was allowed to view my work and make comments/alterations throughout the process. Consequently, I was delighted with every aspect of the finished book which included its cover (designed by my grand-daughter), layout and letterings. I have no hesitation in recommending WMS to anyone who wishes to self publish.

I am 75 and a first time author, I knew nothing about the process. White Magic Studios were the perfect people to produce my book. They took me through it stage by stage. Because I knew so little, I gave poor Vrinda a few headaches, sorry, which she dealt politely and professionally. My book is beautiful and is selling better than I could ever hope for. I will be sending them my second book shortly and look forward to working with Vrinda and John again.

It helped to have a designated person to correspond with who was efficient and encouraging. I was very pleased with the cover design and layout.

A Little Bit o' Magic

Very efficient and prompt service. Delighted with the design cover and layout and my first fictional novel, A Little Bit o' Magic. My only slight disappointment was the unit printing cost per book, which was more expensive than previous quotes I had been given.

Against this, the fees for publication were highly competitive. All in all, very satisfied and would definitely recommend.

Many thanks to Vrinda and John for all their efforts and all the best for the future.

White Magic Studios are a Must visit site for all writers and artists.

I found it quite straightforward to prepare the manuscript for my book but the process of formatting it into book form requires a high degree of technical skill. At this point, I contacted White Magic Studios for professional help and for a small fee they agreed to format my manuscript and they even found a platform to sell it from on a global scale! Working with the White Magic Studio staff has been a pleasure throughout the stage-by-stage process. At each stage, good advice was given to carefully build the book step by step towards ultimate perfection. My book has been in the making for over 40 years. Thank you W.M.S. for turning a dream into vivid reality!

Professional, friendly and respectful

I was very impressed with the services that White Magic Studios offer. They have distributed my novel to all major libraries and bookstores as well as online, and set up an author website, book trailer and so much more.

They have dealt with all aspects of the process very professionally and only proceeded after seeking my approval - they gave me full control throughout.

Vrinda and Ronald were both very friendly and helpful. They were informative and keen to answer any of my questions.

I would gladly recommend White Magic Studios to any authors as they have been outstanding.

Superb result to a difficult task

I contracted White Magic to design 3 new book covers for 3 of my 8 novels. A quote, timescale and questionnaires setting out the parameters agreed. First drafts were complete within a few days and all requests for changes, most of which were my requests additional to my original concept, were completed quickly and efficiently by WM. I now have 3 new covers which embody the theme of the novels' content and look excellent. Keith Wells
