Inspiration for Breakfast anyone?

Today Indie Author Richard F Holmes launches his latest book, Inspiration For Breakfast, and now it’s over to Richard himself to tell us all about it.

First of all I’d like to say a big thank you to for giving me the opportunity to showcase my latest work.

It’s been quite a busy year for me, with publishing one new book and republishing my first five pieces of work as two new revamped paperbacks.  In addition to the writing there have also been two new CDs.  However, in spite of this I still felt that something was missing and I really wanted another book before the year’s end.  As we were already approaching the latter stages of 2012 I wanted something that I could publish quickly without compromising on quality.  Now those who know me will be aware that I really love inspirational quotes, and so I had the idea of putting together a compilation of my favourites.  I am inspired by all sorts of quotes, so for a comparatively small book there is great diversity and something for everybody, regardless of age or gender.  I sat on the idea for a number of weeks but once I decided to set the wheels in motion the book was completed very quickly.

One of my biggest influences in life is Eastern Philosophy, so the first section of the book is dedicated to Eastern Philosophy quotes.  There is also a section on Marcus Aurelius quotes; Marcus was one of only five Roman Emperors considered to be “good”, and the other sections are Greek Philosophy, Miscellaneous and Unknown Author quotes.  The miscellaneous section is particularly exciting as I have included quotes by people as diverse as Audrey Hepburn and Winston Churchill, and Christopher Reeve and Mother Teresa.

Another bit of news is that I felt that the Kindle version of my book, Angelic Wisdom Trilogy, needed a bit of sprucing up.  So I called upon 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 launch of Inspiration For Breakfast and the new cover creation for Angelic Wisdom Trilogy, I am offering Angelic Wisdom Trilogy as a free promotion on Kindle for two days from November 26 through to November 27 inclusive.  Anyone wishing to download can click on the link below this paragraph.  But bear in mind that the promotion will run from midnight to midnight PST, so UK readers will need to be aware of the time difference.

Once again I would like to thank everyone at for supporting my launch, and I would like to close by sharing with our readers one of my favourite quotes from the Inspiration For Breakfast compilation.

Love adorns itself; it seeks to prove inward joy by outward beauty.

Love does not claim possession, but gives freedom.

Love is an endless mystery for it has nothing else to explain it.

Love’s gift cannot be given, it waits to be accepted.

Rabindranath Tagore
