Coffee makes life better to be sure. It is the most consumed beverage in the world (besides water, of course). Coffee helps us be creative, think clearly and respond more quickly. Some of us writers see coffee as a suitable replacement for blood.


Rich and Gloria have been selling Wicked Coffees at local farmers markets for over two and a half years now and Rich is excited to announce the availability of his book, The Twelve Commitments To Life, available at July 4th.


Twelve Commitments To Life front cover

This short and easy-to-read book focuses on twelve life essences, and shows how committing to them makes life more meaningful and connected. Rich also provides a plan in the book for putting these into regular practice. It is insightful, original and practical.


Rich will have the first copies at the Saturday Vista Farmers Market and the Sunday Farmers Market in Leucadia.
