A couple of years ago, Sylvia Bowden published a book called How to Stop Your Kids Going Broke. It has helped a lot of parents to teach their kids financial skills, but everywhere Sylvia went people would say with a smile, “I need a book about how to stop my kids sending me broke.” So she wrote one! Get Out of My Pocket is the result.

The book is easy to read and contains a vast amount of sound and practical advice about handling your children’s wants and needs without a massive financial burden. Sylvia provides advice for parents of children of all ages – from infants, to adult children living away from home. There are tips here about sound financial household practices and ways that you can prepare your kids for their future.

Get Out of My Pocket is published by Silbo Systems and distributed by Castle Publishing. For more information or to purchase a copy (or two!) visit the Castle website.

New Zealand is a great little country – and not just because we won the Rugby World Cup and the Lord of the Rings films were made here! At Castle we think that there is amazing value in unique books produced by New Zealanders (and Australasians) for New Zealand (and Australasia).

We keep our production quality high and our products unique.

And to show just how adamant we are about all this, we’ve got a new logo that we’re going to take every opportunity to display…

April 2010 was a month of launches – in all I attended four launches for books that Castle had been involved with: Trial to Triumph (publishing services), Thank You for Being My Father (publishing services), and two launches (one in Auckland and one in Tauranga) for the new Castle book Transformed Lives.

Both launches for Transformed Lives were great. The first was held at the headquarters of Christian Ministries with Disabled Trust (CMWDT) in Auckland. The second was held at Bethlehem Community Church in Tauranga. A lot of the contributors to the book – people who were caught up in the Charismatic Movement during the 1960s and 70s – were there and it was inspirational to meet them face to face.

As part of the exposure for the book, Bev Montgomery (who compiled the book) and two of the other contributors – David Cowie and Ian Garratt – were interviewed on Rhema. You can listen to those interviews here. The following day, Dale Williamson, who wrote her PhD Thesis on the Charismatic Movement, was also interviewed. Her fascinating interview is here.

Below is a picture from the Tauranga launch – Bev Montgomery signs copies of her book, flanked by a number of the contributing authors.
