            Our society is still learning how to dignify the relationship between a pet and their human with proper mourning rituals. We have only recently allowed the conversation of how to grieve for our non-human family members to come front and centre. In examining the special bond betwe...en pets and their people, Jeffery Moussaieff Masson validates the grief that we feel when a special pet dies. Lost Companions is full of poignant stories about dogs, cats, horses, birds, wombats and other animals that beautifully illustrate the strong bond humans form with them. A heartfelt exploration of human grief after the loss of a pet by the New York Times bestselling author of Dogs Never Lie About Love, Lost Companions is a thought-provoking book on pet loss. Masson takes a personal approach, allowing readers to explore their own responses, suggesting ways through and out of grief, as well as meaningful ways to memorialize our best friends.

            'It's more than just a long motorcycle trip...' TONY WHEELER - co-founder Lonely Planet After riding her motorcycle across Africa, Heather Ellis is diagnosed with HIV in London after having the test for a Russian visa. She is thirty years old and is given five years to live. It i...s 1995, when death from AIDS is inevitable. Timeless On The Silk Road is the story of what happens next. What unfolds is a journey of courage, hardship and immense natural beauty as she rides along the fabled Silk Roads of antiquity to Australia. Believing this is her last adventure, her one last search for meaning, Heather's journey ultimately becomes one of destiny. Infused with a deep spiritual power, it is also a story that leaves the reader considering their own 'time less' journey called life. Heather travels into Central Asia after the fall of the Soviet Union where she crosses deserts and is touched by the ancient world of Islam. She rides into the land of the heavenly mountains and discovers the ancient traditions of the nomads. She ventures into the vastness of Siberia's Altai mountains where she is welcomed into the homes of Kazakhs and Russians alike. And in China, she is repeatedly told there will soon be a new world order. Timeless On The Silk Road is Heather's eagerly anticipated second book and follows Ubuntu: One Woman's Motorcycle Odyssey Across Africa (Nero, Black Inc. 2016).

            Experiencing the loss of a baby, no matter what the gestation period, is truly devastating. Hearing the words, I'm sorry there is no heartbeat is absolutely terrifying , as Rachael Tickner, the book's author states. Rachael is a mum and wife who lives in Queensland, Australia. Sh...e has two little boys, Ollie and Oscar but the journey to become a family of four was not an easy one. In 2013 and 2014 in the space of 5 months, they lost two Flutterby Babies. Their first son was sadly lost via a missed miscarriage and their second Flutterby Baby, through a ruptured ectopic pregnancy. Rachael and Brenton went on to have two healthy and happy boys, but the experience of loss is one that will never leave them. You never forget. Each year when the due date passes for our little Flutterby Babies, I reflect on how old they would have been. It's comforting to think that they are forever watching over us, Rachael said. When going through the losses, Rachael took some time to process her grief and didn't see a psychologist until her fourth pregnancy with little Oscar, who is almost two years of age. During that time, she learned to open up more and talk about her losses to help others. With 'One in Four Women' who experience miscarriage, Rachael hopes to raise awareness for early miscarriage. She has partnered with her chosen charity for the book, The Pink Elephants Support Network. Five dollars from every book sold will go to the charity. Flutterby Baby, Forever in Our Hearts is a 52-Page book, one which explores topics of mini chapters. Sam Payne, co-founder and Director of The Pink Elephants Support Network, said the book would be a great resource to many women and their partners. We're really grateful that Rachael has chosen to donate a portion of profits back to The Pink Elephants with the sale of Flutterby Baby books, Ms Payne said. The books will not only help women and their partners grieving the loss of their baby to pregnancy loss but they will also help us to increase o

            He is Johnathan Thurston. JT, one of the greats, simply the best. His status as one of the greats of rugby league cannot be questioned - an Australian international, Queensland State of Origin and Indigenous All Stars representative. In 2015, he became the first ever four-time Da...lly M Medallist for the NRL season's best player, and later that year, the first ever three-time winner of the Golden Boot Award for the world's best player. When the final siren sounded on 1 September 2018 at Cbus Stadium on the Gold Coast, arguably rugby league's greatest career ended, JT walking off the field to be farewelled a legend. Fans cheered. Teammates hugged. Officials shook his hand. His family and friends shed a tear. Then came the speeches. For his adoring fans, it was the end of an era - for JT it was a moment that had been 30 years in the making. A moment that once seemed improbable. This is a story that began in a Brisbane backyard. With a boy, a ball and a big, big dream. They all said he was too skinny, too slow, and too wild to succeed. Most would have quit. This is the story of how Johnathan Thurston transformed himself into a world champion - how he went from a kid with dreadlocks to a State of Origin star and Dally M Medal winner in just three years - and went on to become rugby league's greatest player. In his autobiography, JT recounts the complete and remarkable story of his life. Of setbacks and scandals. Of agony and pain. Of love and hate. Of victories and losses. And of Clive Churchill Medals, Dally M Medals, State of Origin shields and of fairy tale premierships - and of a girl called Samantha and how love conquered all.
