Maitland, FL (PressExposure) April 17, 2013 -- Central Florida-based Edvardson Publishing is pleased to announce that its first publication, The Little Things and Such, is now available on Amazon and Lulu.
The Little Things and Such by Roger Edwards is a collection of motivational poems and life quotes. "These inspirational items were my escape route when I was younger," Edwards explained about his difficult childhood, being raised by alcoholic and abusive parents. "They were positive ideas about life, love, and self confidence my parents never taught me."
What started out as a simple self-help exercise became almost an obsession for Edwards, as he gained confidence and wisdom from his findings. He began collecting the materials for The Little Things and Such about three years ago, obtaining inspirational, relevant items from anonymous and unknown sources. Over time, he fashioned together a crude rough draft of a book. "It was stapled together," Edwards recalled. "It didn't look professional at all. I don't really remember why, but I never finished it."
It was an out-of-sight, out-of-mind project until recently, when a friend told Edwards she has been using the book's contents as a form of motivation for women from dysfunctional families. She is a volunteer and used the positive life quotes to help lead conversations for her small groups
"After hearing that, I had to finish creating the writing journal I'd started three years ago," he said. "It is a great feeling to know I've had such a positive impact upon someone else's life. I am hoping the contents of the book will be beneficial and life-changing for even more people, just as it was for me."
