Dallas author Michele Wahlder will celebrate the release of her debut book, Alphatudes: The Alphabet of Gratitude, 26 Solutions for Life’s Little Challenges, with a book signing at Barnes & Noble Preston Royal Shopping Center (616 Preston Royal Shopping Center/Dallas, TX 75230/Phone: 214-363-0924) on Saturday, February 20, 2010 beginning at 2:00 PM.

In Alphatudes: The Alphabet of Gratitude (Life Possibilities Publishing), ISBN: 978-0-9823645-0-5, Trade Paper, 128 pages, $12.95, Wahlder, an internationally recognized, certified life and career coach, career counselor, psychotherapist and inspirational speaker, reveals the unexpected and simple secret to living a joyful life: gratitude. Even simpler, Wahlder explains how our earliest grade school victory—the ABCs—can be utilized to achieve an even greater victory: a sustainable shift in thinking that leads to contentment, peace and appreciation in our lives today.
Through the book’s engaging, inspirational narrative, Wahlder presents the clear, unyielding definition of an “alphatude”—a person, place or thing for which one alphabetically expresses gratitude—and shares the practical, yet remarkable, secrets of embracing a grateful, positive outlook and approaching life’s little challenges with grace, gratitude and hope.
Resplendent with breathtaking illustrations, heartfelt prayers, uplifting affirmations, and quotes, Alphatudes: The Alphabet of Gratitude takes readers on an extraordinary trip through 26 alphatudes drawn from spiritual principles and universal human concepts. Alternately enlightening and enchanting, Alphatudes: The Alphabet of Gratitude is an effective, easy method whereby readers will discover how to: heighten awareness and appreciation of life’s daily gifts; attract opportunities with a positive mind-set; surmount life’s challenges by drawing upon a healthy reservoir of gratitude; find blessings in difficult situations; and become free—once and for all—from worry, anxiety, negativity and resentment.
