50 WAYS TO GET YOUR WAY by Juliet Huck


50 WAYS TO GET YOUR WAY by Juliet Huck, Motivational/Nonfiction, 120 pp., $14.95 (paperback)

Genre: Motivational/Nonfiction




50 Ways to Get Your Way by Juliet Huck
Promotes
the Art of Persuading Others
Using the Simple Power of Commonsense Values
In 50 WAYS TO GET YOUR WAY, Juliet Huck
shares the lessons she learned while growing up on her family’s farm in rural
Ohio—values such as being grateful, nurturing relationships, and listening
intently, which she used to build a successful career as a persuasion
strategist working with corporate clients and on high-profile legal cases. Huck
teaches readers how to be persuasive in a manner that is honorable and
respectful, while making genuine human connections.
The tools Huck shares in 50 WAYS TO GET YOUR
WAY
are familiar, but the author notes that many of these values are
missing in the current social climate. Using beautiful images (many
photographed by the author) and conversational prose, Huck encourages readers
to commit to a practice of awareness—of self and others—and guides them through
the dance of building relationships that will help them achieve their goals.
While all of the pearls of wisdom presented in 50 WAYS TO GET YOUR WAY
are essential ingredients for developing into a solid human being, several
offer the building blocks for becoming an exceptional person who gets what he
or she wants. Being empathetic by learning what other people find meaningful,
paying attention to the effect that one’s tone can have on others, telling a
compelling story, letting go of expectations to minimize disappointment, and
understanding the importance of clarity when asking for assistance or sharing
plans are just a few of the gems that Huck examines in her book.

Huck acknowledges that the principles outlined in 50
WAYS TO GET YOUR WAY
are not “rocket science”; however, she believes they
are timely. “Observing the current environment, I could not sit back and be
silent about how we are treating each other—especially when we need something
from someone else. I felt instead of fighting with others, it is time to remind
us of the beautiful things that can connect us,” Huck said.
50 WAYS TO GET YOUR WAY was written with the intention of helping
people fulfill their personal and professional needs by mastering the art of
making genuine connections.

The Declaration of Persuasion
Persuasion in NOT a call to action – it is a directed action
It is
time to break up the myth that persuasion is
a call
to action. To “call” is to “invite.” This puts all
the
power in someone else’s hands. While to “direct”
is to
“control.” This is the ultimate way to give you
the
power you need to get what you want. Inviting
someone
to do something allows them to say no. You
must
lead or direct them to what you want in simple
words,
statistics and/or visuals proportional to the
magnitude
of your need. Think of a traffic cop. They
are not
inviting you to take their direction. You are
clearly
persuaded to do what they want you to do
as they
are in control. Moving someone to decide
in your
favor is not always easy but there are steps
which
you can take that will get you what you want.
Carry on!















Juliet Huck is an expert in persuasive communications with 25 years
of experience. She was born in Marietta, Ohio, and holds a bachelor’s
degree in fine arts. During her career, she has worked with the US
Department of Justice for the Enron litigation, Exxon Mobil, Boeing, and
law firms, such as O’Melveny and Myers, Kirkland and Ellis, and King
and Spalding, among other high-profile clients. Juliet is the author of 50 Ways to Get Your Way and The Equation of Persuasion: Securing Decisions in Your Favor.



Her latest book, 50 Ways to Get Your Way, offers insights
for skillfully using persuasion in work and in life by forming
meaningful relationships. It is the first book in a series that will
teach readers how to get what they want in all facets of their lives.

of two insanely (well trained) sarcastic men, wife to a dangerously
smolder inducing grumble bunny (fireman), and friend to some amazing
ladies (you know who you are). Thanks for reading, thanks for being a
friend, and I look forward to meeting you in the future for drinks,
danger and laughs.





Living
in Northern Ontario, Canada, Kerri loves to read, travel and find new
reasons to write you fantastic love stories. Remember, not all love
is clean. Dark, light, angsty, sexually charged and twisted—that’s
her genre.

It’s
heart wrenching stories where the muse directs her. As the instrument
of their lives, their stories are told piece by piece. You can hope
for the good guy to win, but it won’t always happen. There's no
guarantee of an HEA (happily ever after) or HFN (happy for now),
because life doesn't always have those.

Enjoy
the OMG's and tears. Tear your hair out, toss a book or two, because
Kerri Ann wants for you to feel their pain too. As they live it, you
absorb it on the pages.

escaped.
Now they want to use her intimate knowledge of their enemy to destroy
him.

As
Jessop grows closer to this elite brotherhood, their leader succumbs

An Autumn in Paris by Alix Nichols


An Autumn in Paris
Alix Nichols
Publication date: November 1st 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Because of Audrey Hepburn, I have foolishly…

a) bought into the whole “Paris is always a good idea” thing without any offscreen evidence,

b) uprooted my son and left my bittersweet memories behind,

c) allowed Thomas—the handsome, caring, way-out-of-my-league vet—to disrupt the humdrum life I had self-prescribed for my Broken Heart Syndrome.

Behind his easy smile and swoon-worthy pecs, Thomas conceals an open wound. No matter how hot his kisses or how genuine his affection, he’s still reeling. He can’t move on.

And I can’t risk falling for him. I have a child to raise—a preteen boy who needs his mom to be all there.

But as autumn strips the trees of their leaves, falling for Thomas is exactly what I do. Throwing caution to the wind, I dare to hope for a future with him…

…until the past comes knocking.

Can we handle it or will it break us forever?

Whether you’re a fan of timeless movies like “Sabrina” or prefer steamy contemporary romance novels, “An Autumn in Paris” has something for you to love.

Escape to Paris, and let this sweet, fun and sensual tale give you all the feels!

Goodreads / Amazon

EXCERPT:

Baloo clings to me, scrabbling and whining as I try to set him down.

“Do you know the breed?” Dr. Brousse asks, studying Baloo.

I try to peel his paws off me. “Likely a Terrier cross. He’s a rescue dog.”

Losing my patience with the uncooperative Baloo, I force him onto the table without realizing that one of his paws is in my shirt.

The fabric tears, buttons fly off, and the next instant I’m staring at my breasts on full display, nipples prodding my unpadded, wire-free bra. I lift my eyes in horror and catch him staring at my boobs.

He averts his gaze immediately.

I cover my chest with my left hand, the right one gripping Baloo so he wouldn’t fall off the high table.

The vet takes hold of the dog. “I have him.”

Letting go, I yank the lapels of my shirt over my breasts and hold them together, hoping my face isn’t too red.

Except, I know it is. My cheeks and ears feel hot enough to spontaneously combust at any moment.

You seem fine to me.” He held her close once again. “You seem pretty great.”

She tipped her head to the side to look at him. His eyes flashed, then he captured her mouth in a kiss. Electricity shot from her head to her toes. She pressed against him. She’d never been kissed so deeply. Sparks centered in her pussy. He threaded his fingers into her hair and held her tight without crushing her. When he broke the connection, her knees quaked. She sagged into him.

Damn.” He smiled. “Better than I thought.”

She wanted to say something snappy, but the words weren’t there. Instead, she settled for honesty. “For me, too.”

She draped her arms around his neck. She didn’t want to leave the dance floor or for the night to end. She could almost hear Kelly encouraging her to leave with him and live a little. He hadn’t asked her to go home with him, but the better part of her wanted that to happen.

I can’t offer you forever, but I want to give you tonight,” he said. He kissed her again then cupped her jaw in both hands. “Very much so.”

Who needs forever when one night can be everything?”
