Author Richard F. Holmes returns with a new book and much more!

Today I’d like to welcome my friend and fellow author Richard F. Holmes back to my blog.

Thank you Bonnie.  I must say it’s a pleasure to be here.

Thank you, Richard. Can’t wait to hear about your latest book!

Well, it’s called Inspiration For Breakfast and it’s a compilation of wisdom quotes that I felt compelled to put into book form, and I’m really grateful to you for showcasing it today on my official launch day.

As you may well know I really love inspirational quotes; I find that they can really fire you up and get you going and I just felt it was something I needed to do.  I had already published one new book this year and republished my first five pieces of work as two revamped paperbacks, but I found myself wanting to do something else before the year’s end, and Inspiration For Breakfast is the result of that.  I got the idea and just sat on it for weeks, but once I decided to go ahead with it, it was finished very quickly.

Was there any particular source you gathered all these quotes from?

A few really; I just love Eastern Philosophy, so the first section is dedicated to Eastern Philosophy quotes.  Then there is a section on Marcus Aurelius quotes; Marcus was one of only five Roman Emperors to have been considered “good”.  There is also a section on Greek Philosophy quotes and a section on miscellaneous quotes from all kinds of people as diverse as Audrey Hepburn to Winston Churchill.

Who would you say your book was for specifically?

Literally anyone and everyone Bonnie; young and old, male and female; anyone at all who is looking for a little bit of inspiration.

That sounds great, and I understand that Inspiration For Breakfast is not the only project you have been busy with?

Yes that’s correct,  firstly I decided that my Kindle version of Angelic Wisdom Trilogy needed sprucing up a little, so I engaged the services of our very own Stephanie Keyes’ company, Sycamore Road Design, to create a new cover for me, and here it is…

To celebrate the new cover reveal I am hosting a free giveaway on Amazon Kindle of Angelic Wisdom Trilogy, and anyone interested in downloading a copy can find the link at the bottom of the page(available November 26th and November 27th inclusive).

As well as that I have just released my latest CD, Mantra For The Soul.  This is a project that I am particularly excited about, and I also have someone working on a new backing track for one of my older meditation CDs that is already in production. If things go to plan, the finished article will seem like a completely new project, only much better.  Finally, I have an idea for another CD in the new year that should turn out to be the best of the bunch.  So, all in all, exciting times! 

Wow! You’ve been a busy man! Kudos to you, and thanks so much for joining me today to impart your exciting news.  Before you go, can you just share one of your favorite quotes from the book with us?

It would be a pleasure Bonnie, and thanks again for having me as a guest on your blog!

“Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people with whom fate brings you together, but do so with all your heart.” ~ Marcus Aurelius
