Try, Try Again (Yes, you! :)

by Mayra Porrata on May 18, 2016

TryTryAgain_frontcover_finalWe’re pleased to share our newest release, TRY, TRY AGAIN by Sarah Canter.

This book is exactly what you think it’s about; about not giving up, about staying in the tension that is inherent in any worthwhile endeavor, or failure of any kind, and working through the emotions and layers of frustration that are an important part of living a creative and healthy life. Try, Try Again is a book for everyone!

You can purchase Try, Try Again at our ONLINE BOOKSTORE. To compliment the book, you may download our free BOOK PLUS to share and reinforce these important messages with those you love.
