Yes, our books are on Kindle!

One question we at Do Life Right, Inc. get asked a lot is: Are your books available on Kindle?

The answer is: YES! We believe strongly that electronic and audio books are the future of all books and we strive to keep up with the latest technologies.

With that in mind, all of our books are available in Kindle format. We are looking into other e-book formats, have found a great recording studio for future audio books (and are currently accepting voice submissions), and are even searching for foreign translators. We believe that the world is our home, not just the United States of America and other English-speaking nations.

If you have a question like this or a solution to one of our problems, don't hesitate to contact us!

Our sixth title: ADVICE FROM DAD: INSPIRATION FOR THE NEXT GENERATION

Advice from Dad: Inspiration for the Next Generation by Bill O'Hearn is Do Life Right's first nonfiction title. Bill is also our first previously published author. We feel that it is an honor to have Bill on our team!

Are you headed in the direction of your choice? You have been blessed with one of the most important assets humans can own—the power to choose. The challenge is to make sure you are making choices that will bring out the very best in you. You were put here to grow and make a difference. Written lovingly by a father to his children, insights on topics such as: Trust, Risk, Integrity, Marriage, and Quality of Life, are touched on, reaching all who would love more advice from Dad.

Bill O’Hearn is the author of four previous books, all of which speak to the possibilities that open for us when we view our world with curiosity, enthusiasm, trust, openness, laughter and a willingness to risk. The lessons he shares encourage and inspire people from all walks of life to believe in all that they are and to become all that they can become. Bill is a speaker, author and life coach, who has spent over 45 years in the life insurance industry where his accomplishments placed him in the top 2% of the world’s producers. He was a founding member of The Oregon Speakers Association and is a past member of The National Speakers Association. Bill is the product of a lifetime of learning. He has succeeded and he has failed. He has known great joy and suffered significant adversity. In the process he has discovered how to create balance and success in life, and his mission is to help others do the same. In 1980 he founded the Alpha Learning Institute for the purpose of encouraging people to expand their growth as human beings.

Our fifth title: CODY GREENE AND THE RAINBOW MYSTERY

by Linda Fields

When a painting is stolen from nine year old Cody Greene’s family’s art gallery, he does what any artist does best: he sketches the clues. Through cooking with his friend, visiting the midwife with his mom, hiking with his dad, and helping to prepare for an upcoming art and craft festival, Cody’s homeschooling takes a new turn as he unravels the Case of the Rainbow Mystery.

Introducing new author, Linda Fields, to the homeschooling fiction "field" with her new release: Cody Greene and the Rainbow Mystery, a fabulous children's chapter book.

Linda Fields is a first time published author with a million stories in her head. She’s been writing for years, yet especially loves books for children and teens. She came up with the idea for the character of Cody after seeing that most children’s books didn’t have people from a variety of ethnicities. On a trip with her family, she was inspired with the idea of a Rainbow Mystery and instantly knew that Cody had to be the one to solve it. Linda lives a quiet life in the southwest with her family and pets. She loves reading, writing, hiking, and watching movies. Check out www.AuthorFields.com to learn more about Linda.

Illustrated by ten different authors, this book is highly unique. Each illustrator fulfilled a unique role in this book, since it was set in a northern New Mexico art gallery.

Our flagship book: WRIGHT ON TIME: ARIZONA

Explore a salted cave in southern Arizona with the fictional RV-living, homeschooling Wright family as they begin their 50-month, 50-state adventure around the United States of America!

Wright on Time: Arizona, Book 1 is Do Life Right, Inc.'s flagship book. It was through writing this first book in Lisa M. Cottrell-Bentley's children's chapter book series that Lisa was able to draw upon her love of homeschooling, learning all the time, and fun family adventures to build a whole new world for homeschooling kids of today to see themselves in. Lisa is particularly excited at how well received non-homeschooling families have found her books.

Wright on Time: Arizona, Book 1 was published in August 2009 and is available worldwide. Through the sales of this flagship book, Do Life Right, Inc. has been able to bring more books about realistic homeschoolers of today to the kids and families who have been craving them for years, only to be told that books about kids like them aren't interesting enough for today's readers. Do Life Right, Inc. is proudly proving that theory wrong!
