A THOUGHTFUL EXPLORATION INTO THE THEME OF KINDNESS, WITH PRACTICAL SUGGESTIONS FOR HOW TO BE KIND IN EVERY AREA OF OUR LIVES

‘Being kind to yourself, to strangers, to those you love, to the world – every day, at every opportunity – will make you happier and more connected to everything and everyone than you have ever been.’

Prompted by the seeming hopelessness of the world around her, Bernadette Russell undertook a pledge to be kind to a stranger every day for a year. Whether it was baking cakes for neighbours, giving up her seat on public transport, leaving money in books or volunteering at her local charities, the experience left Bernadette with a feeling of wanting to inspire others.

The Little Book of Kindness is packed with fun, practical tips and interactive exercises that encourage you to be kind in every area of life – be it online, to strangers, to the environment, in your community or to yourself – and help to change the world, one act of kindness at a time.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Bernadette Russell first started her blog, 366 Days of Kindness, in 2011, detailing her attempt to be kind to a stranger every day in response to the UK riots earlier that year. In 2015 she was selected as one of the Southbank Centre’s 67 Changemakers for this on-going project, which has resulted in two large scale interactive installations, an international touring theatre show, a US radio documentary and two children’s activity books. Bernadette is a columnist for Balance magazine, writing a monthly musing on the theme of kindness.

About Sahara Foley

Bio: Until my husband died on Christmas 2012, I never thought about becoming a writer. In fact, the act of writing a story terrified me. Don’t get me wrong, I loved reading, just never had the knack for writing. The thought of writing dialogue scared the bejeebers out of me. See, Bob was the writer. He wrote stories for years but could never get a traditional publisher interested enough to publish even one. Now I understand why, as they were unpolished outlines. Then, after 30 years together, Bob passed away and my life was turned upside down. About a month later, I was sitting around my apartment, trying to adjust to the worst event in my life, when a little voice spoke to me. Why not publish Bob’s stories? To be truthful, ever since the advent of self-publishing, I always wanted too, that’s how much I believed in his stories. But I knew I would have to fight him for every little change I made to his outlines. Sorry, honey, but they had to be done. So, I pulled out the box of stories, dusted them off, and started on a new adventure: The World of Self-Publishing. Boy, did I have a lot to learn. I finally published several short stories early in 2014, then my horror novella, It Lives in the Basement. While I was working on them, I was slowly learning the craft of writing, and getting The Secret of Excalibur ready for publication. Excalibur was my favorite story of them all, and in the back of my mind, I knew I wanted a publisher. One day on Twitter, I ran across a tweet from Creativia Publishing, and that was another game changer for me. I signed up with them in December of 2014, and it was the best decision I’ve made. One thing I’ve discovered on my new adventure, are all the really awesome and talented Indie Authors. If you find the right community of Indie Authors, all they want to do is help each other. I found that I love promoting them and their books, so that’s how I setup my blog. For readers to meet Indie Authors. Anyway, enough about me.
