Transform Your Life by Changing What You Tell Yourself—It’s That Easy! Take charge of your own happiness with this nurturing, empowering compilation of positive affirmations and stories. Choosing Your Words and Crafting Your Life will encourage you to first examine your own “self-talk.” Are the conversations you have with yourself—the phrases you use to describe yourself—empowering? Constructive? Or are they negative and demeaning? This book will help you make conscious choices about how you speak to yourself. By creating powerful, positive affirmations, you can decide how you want to live, what you want to change, what you want to improve, and what you want to fully appreciate in your life. Choosing Your Words and Crafting Your Life provides the tools you need to write your own life story, along with examples of affirming statements designed to help you live a life filled with all the joy and blessings you deserve!

When Ray first entered the publishing industry, authors relied on “vanity presses” to produce their work – many of whom would charge $15,000 or more and leave the author’s garage filled with hundreds of books. Ray, along with coworker Alan Harris, joined forces with Miles Nelson to create Dog Ear Publishing to provide the author community a self-publisher with a heart. The group’s application of new technologies and publishing on demand reduced the cost of publishing a book to a fraction of what it had been for previous generations; authors now have the ability to publish a book in as little as six weeks and print as few as a single copy.
