"Does Paris Give You Permission to Have Pleasure?"
Join Victoria, The Pleasure Coach for a liberating view on how you can most benefit from that sly and encouraging nod the city of Paris offers you --the nod that says: go ahead, live your life with sexual pleasure. Victoria will share the beats of her own transformation (no, not X-rated!) and her observations on the social and cultural factors that encouraged a life-changing journey...so much so, she left her career in the children's television business to create her pleasure coaching service.

Cheap Insider Paris Restaurants.
She enlightened us with her thoughts about the publishing evolution and how electronic publishing is to reading as electricity was to lighting. Candlemakers worried when electricity facilitated the light bulb, but look at candles where they are today -- specialty items that cost a fortune! And so, perhaps, so will our precious paper books now that digital format reading is sweeping the world.
For those of you interested in publishing your valuable content, contact Karen Henrich by visiting Tap Books
