Life Unhurried has an ambitious goal. “We’re on a mission to change the way people travel,” says co-founder Celeste Mitchell.

The Life Unhurried brand and blog, focusing on slow living and slow travel, launched in 2018. He followed soon after with an online directory called Slow Stays featuring tiny homes, minimalist lodges, tents glamping, geodesic domes and other unique accommodations to help people retreat from the noise of the modern world. Now he launched a book, Life Unhurried: Slow and Sustained Sojourns Across Australia.

“For too long, the environment, small communities and our sanity have paid the price for our insatiable need to travel fast and hard – ticking off to-do lists and piling our itineraries with Instagram-friendly experiences” , Mitchell said. Large format. “I hope this book (and our website) will be used as a portal to the eye-opening world of slow, sustainable travel and unique journeys that we are privileged to be able to share right here in Australia.”

Large format access members get special tables at busy restaurants, tickets to exclusive events, and discounts on food, coffee, branded deals and more.

The book, by Mitchell, Krista Eppelstun and Katie Gannon, has beautiful photographs of pretty landscapes and photos of 50 stays to experience. It also outlines the philosophy of slow travel, explaining why it’s beneficial and how Covid has been a catalyst in changing people’s mindsets.

Properties featured on Slow Stays and in the book are selected based on criteria that include location, sustainability credentials, community and well-being – and owners add the context of how their properties were created. “As we dug deeper to share the story of how these places were created, it was clear that the salvation they offer travelers was also felt by the owners themselves through the process of bringing them to life,” says the intro to the book.

“Some quit high-flying jobs to get their hands dirty, others decided to raise off-grid families, and a few created them as a kind of needed therapy. We then began to understand these Slow Stays as sanctuaries for the mind and soul, as well as beautiful places to rest.

The book includes chapters on micro-hotels, farmhouses, and A-frame houses. There’s also a section on five places you can book with great outdoor tubs. An excerpt from that chapter follows.

Five outdoor tubs are worth booking
There has never been a simpler splendor than a bathtub under a starry sky. Hot water paired with expansive scenes of native terrain and the kiss of the outdoors on your skin create an intoxicating bath – a bath guaranteed to help you drift into a slower tempo.

These slow stays with outdoor baths were built to heal the weary traveler in all of us.

Kestrel Nest Ecohut, Mount Adrah, New South Wales
Bathe with views over the grassy fields of regenerative farmland at this off-grid cabin on the ancestral lands of the Wiradjuri Nation. A beacon of sustainability, two-thirds of this property is set aside to safeguard an endangered habitat of grassy boxwood woodland, which attracts over 140 species of native birds. Order an organic hamper for a true paddock-to-plate experience and enjoy farm produce in the luxury of this deep outdoor tub.

Whale Song, Falmouth, Tasmania/lutruwita
Soak while admiring your own private patch of coastline, from a tub set on the outdoor deck of this lovingly restored 1980s fisherman’s cottage. Watch whales in the moonlit Tasman Sea, albatrosses that have traveled thousands of miles to feed here soar overhead, and fish leap as they journey through ocean currents. Sprinkle on some of the custom-made bath salts and lose yourself in nature’s hypnotic dance.

Rosalita’s Rest, Billinudgel, New South Wales
An enchanting scene of fairy lights and starry skies awaits at the aptly named Wildheart Dreamer Cabin located on a permaculture farm just outside of Brunswick Heads. Spend your evening dipping your green thumbs in the outdoor swimming area after getting your hands dirty helping the owners plant trees or pick herbs. Be inspired by the recycled materials that surround you, from colonial stained glass windows to the lamp recycled from an electric pole.

Lost Retreats, Mount Jagged, South Australia
For those who dream of European landscapes, sitting in this clawfoot tub overlooking olive groves and vineyards will immerse you in the Tuscan sun in the heart of South Australia’s Fleurieu Peninsula. Listen to records, play board games and drink organic wine produced right on your doorstep at this sustainably built lakeside retreat designed for two.

My Sister and the Sea, Marion Bay, South Australia
After days spent taking beach walks and jumping into rock pools in Dhilba Guuranda–Innes National Park, there’s no better place to take a dip than in the old clawfoot tub under the casuarinas in the backyard of this lovely wooden cabin. Continue to recalibrate your soul with every puzzle piece you turn over in your hand, every book you read on the daybed, and every sip of wine by the fireplace.

Unhurried Life offers 12 slow two-night stays. Participate in the competition until October 8 here.

Life Unhurried: Slow and Sustained Sojourns Across Australia is by Celeste Mitchell, Krista Eppelstun and Katie Gannon, published by Hardie Grant Explore, $50. Buy it here.

FORTY members of the Bannockburn Chamber of Commerce came together last week to celebrate the release of the second annual Bannockburn and District Business Directory.

The sixty-page color booklet has been designed to promote local businesses and encourage Bannockburn area residents to support businesses, services and trades near them when they need it.

President Bronwyn Davie said 85 companies are featured in this edition.

“The directory was produced by chamber volunteers, including Emma Jennings from On Track Virtual and Leanne Adams from Will Design, and was printed by Print Design Australia,” she said.

“We have also incorporated new community pages to encourage people to use local services, for example there is a page sponsored by Corangamite member Libby Coker on childcare options.

“It will be distributed by member businesses and can be picked up at the local mall.”

The launch event at Bannockburn Bowls Club was also an opportunity for the chamber to welcome new members, with businesses receiving certificates.

“The petanque club also got new members this year. They have a listing in the directory, and we posted about their new lights,” Ms. Davie said.

“We hope to use them as much as possible as members and will aim to host fun networking events with businesses on the greens in the future.”

Ms Coker was also present and members of Bannockburn’s SES, including Daryl Jeran, made a presentation, calling for support to establish a new, updated unit facility.

How do you find good self-published books? https://www.annuaire770.info/how-do-you-find-good-self-published-books/ Mon, 29 Aug 2022 10:38:06 +0000 https://www.annuaire770.info/how-do-you-find-good-self-published-books/ It’s no secret that self-published books are mostly frowned upon by many readers. “If a book looks ‘self-published’ then I’d say there’s a good chance it sucks,” one wrote.

It’s no secret that self-published books are mostly frowned upon by many readers. “If a book looks ‘self-published’ then I’d say there’s a good chance it sucks,” one wrote. Reddit user, proof that there is this stigma that self-published books are bad. Well, there might be a grain of truth in that. Anyone can self-publish these days, thanks to the abundance of platforms like Kindle Direct Publishing, Draft2Digital, and Smashwords. The publishing gatekeepers have already been bypassed, the keys thrown out the window. And oh, it’s not limited to ebooks only. Now anyone can self-publish in print and even have their physical book distributed to brick and mortar stores. Anyone can now hire narrators to record their books – that’s already a different field, but you get the idea.

When self-publishing, most authors do all the work on their own, not realizing that editing is a collaborative effort. There’s a reason why in traditional publishing, there are art directors, illustrators, layout artists, editors, proofreaders, publicists, and other professionals involved. A book project passes through several hands within a publishing house. In the early stages of publishing alone, the manuscript is checked by a third party, such as a literary agent, editor, or beta reader who might detect problematic content. I know this because I am a publisher myself; the work done to get a book published is incredibly long and tedious. Typical publication time can take up to two or three years.

I’m not saying that when something is traditionally published, it’s automatically a good book. There are books from traditional publishers that are just as bad. On the other hand, that doesn’t mean that self-publishers can’t get professional help with their projects. Some freelance writers who can afford it can certainly do it too. But often the cost is high, and the average self-published author is likely juggling multiple jobs to make ends meet.

I know this because I have seen it from their point of view too. Besides being a traditional publisher, I also published my own book a lifetime ago (no, I won’t link it here, sorry!). I know how difficult it is to do everything alone. Self-published authors are often at a great disadvantage due to a lack of resources.

So, while most self-published works get a bad rap, where do we find the ones worth our time and money? To start, we need to define what is considered a “good” self-published book. Is it manufacturing? The cover? Writing? Should it look like a publisher-quality book? Is it the general atmosphere? Well, people judge the book by its cover and content, so you’ll know a “bad” self-published book when you see it.

To help you find the stars among this crowded field, I’ve compiled a directory of sources to visit to give self-published authors the chance they deserve.

Weekly editorsThe life of the book

Book Life is the independently published book reviews section of Weekly editors. They regularly review independent books here, just like in their traditionally published books section. By browsing the Commentsyou can see which ones have merit.

Meanwhile, in this section, the authors paid for the reviews. And since they paid for it, they are guaranteed to have a place. In this page, you can see a book’s “production notes” such as notes for cover, content, editing, etc. It’s surprisingly detailed, and I find it useful when looking for under-the-radar books to read.

Book Life Award

On the other hand, this one is TP‘s Award for self-published works. It’s an annual writing competition that aims to “support freelance writers and discover great books.”

The competition is divided into two categories: fiction competition and non-fiction competition. Since winners are rated by reviewers, you might want to check them out to see if they are worth adding to your TBR.

Independent book review

This is a website that publishes book reviews from small presses and self-published authors. As they post many reviews of these creators, you may find something remarkable.

According to disclaimerthey only put out “good” reviews, so let’s assume everything you find here is outstanding – bad apples thrown away.

Kirkus Reviews‘ List of the best independent books

This magazine publishes the best of independent books every year, and it’s also a great place to find great self-published books.

Here you will notice that the books have the predominant place blue Star above them, which means they are starred reviews. Plus, you can browse independent books published from 2015 to 2022.

IndieReader

IndieReader is another book review site which is for self-published books. Reviews have a point system with corresponding meaning, from one star readings which are “really bad, work on it” and five stars which are “great!” Must read.” I find it unique and useful. That way you’ll know which ones are worth buying. You can also sort by genre if you’re specifically looking for something.

There are also books stamped “IR Approved”, which means that the site staff recommends that you check them out.

IndieReader Discovery Price

As Kirkus, this site also offers a writing contest for self-published books. The competition aims tofind the best of the best.” And according to them, only books with more than four stars in their reviews section are read by their judges. You can consult the past winners to see if you want the titles listed there.

You can also browse the entries for 2022 for more options.


It’s just hard to find good self-published books these days because publishing one has never been easier. And it doesn’t help that so many self-published works have low production value, adding to the crowded scene.

Fortunately, the websites above make it easy to see which ones have merit. For more, here’s the “Beginner’s Guide to Finding Great Self-Published Fiction.”

SOLON, Ohio — Jim Janson’s ability to look back — and upward — set the tone for his first novel, “Bartlett,” a coming-of-age look at growing up around 1960 in Solon.

Janson’s autobiographical novel keeps much of the setting from his upbringing real, as protagonist Jimmy Dixon becomes enamored with the fledgling space program.

“I call it a 60-year odyssey,” said Janson, 75, who ran at Chanel High School and graduated from Ohio University in art history, taught at Kent State and earned a doctorate. from the Case Western reserve. He spent much of his teaching career in Georgia.

“I love the past; I’m a nostalgic person,” said Janson, who said “Bartlett” took a few years off from writing.

About 80% of the book is autobiographical, said Janson, who was born in Cleveland but moved at a young age to Solon. He lived on Linden Drive and attended St. Rita from first to eighth grade. He skated at Geauga Lake after basketball practice, played in Little League and has fond memories of growing up here.

“In some ways, some of it was pretty easy to write because I had those things in my head and those experiences,” he said. “Jimmy, that’s really me. I loved adventure, we played pirates, we rode bikes everywhere, Little League baseball, I read Hardy Boys novels. When he was a kid, his football player favorite baseball in Cleveland was jimmy piersallwho played here from 1959 to 1961.

Pedaling past blackberry bushes, Jimmy — just like Janson did — cycled to a drugstore, sat in a swivel chair, and bought baseball cards and magazines. And like Jimmy, Janson was very good at baseball but terrible at basketball.

Children from his neighborhood and school, with changed names, are featured in the book. Sister Madeleine of St. Rita was real, he said.

“I had a wonderful upbringing,” he said. “At the time, you were younger. We thought the nuns were 60 years old. They were probably in their thirties.

A bully in his book, Dennis Drabek, is based on a real child, although the real person isn’t as bad as the character, he said.

James T. Janson wrote “Bartlett”.

Friendship is a key theme. In the book, Jimmy befriends two girls – Terri is in his class and likes him, Elaine is a high school student who shares her interest in the space program while fighting the morals of the day to keep women in their place. Both, in their own way, encourage it.

“I’m so lucky to have friends from all of these fields,” he said. “I still have friends from elementary school that I talk to, high school, middle school, and years up to now. And I think a lot of people don’t have that. I love it all. In writing “Bartlett,” I was able to incorporate a lot of those things.

Janson uses his past literally and figuratively throughout the book. Rexall Drugs is no longer Rexall but a CVS now. A pet shop is a creation of his imagination; a toy store is real.

As part of a class project on the space program, Jimmy designs a way to launch a mouse into “space” using a kite.

This interest in space never really waned for Janson. He has read dozens of books on ufology. And several years ago, for Christmas, he asked his children one thing: Pool your money and buy me a ticket to see a launch at Cape Canaveral in Florida. This year he may have been about three miles from the Axiom I launch that carried four civilians.

“It was really exciting,” he said.

“Bartlett” is a cute coming-of-age tale that proves you don’t have to leave your past far behind, no matter how old you are.

Janson, who’s been gone from Solon for decades but comes back every once in a while, is considering the idea of ​​maybe doing another book, maybe a sequel with the same characters. But he said just being able to write this book “has been very satisfying. Even if it doesn’t sell anything, at least I achieved what I wanted to do.

The book was published 60 years after Janson’s stay in Solon.

Finally, he said: “Mission accomplished”.
