Books by Steve Kaye

Welcome to this list of books.

I design books that are easy to read. The fonts are a bit larger, the paragraphs are shorter, and the space is more open.

Most important, the content is positive, often with a touch of whimsey.

So people will want to read and keep these feel-good books.

All these books have been published using Barnes & Noble’s print on demand service, except for Life Poems and the book by Stephen Shunk.

I’m making e-book versions of the books that contain only text.

So far “145 Tips for Effective Meetings” is available as an e-book. With more to come.

Trees, Photos of Zion National Park by Steve Kaye

Trees, And the Rock That Holds Them

Welcome to this uncommon photo tour of Zion National Park.

This book shows both popular views of Zion National Park plus views that few people notice.

Many of the photos were taken with telephoto lenses, and thus capture distant scenery. For example, the tree on the cover can be seen, if you stand in front of the lodge and look across the river. Yes, it’s there, far away.

The book also includes uplifting poems and inspirational thoughts. So this is a book that will be a joy to keep and share.

What Birds Want to Tell Us, book by Steve Kaye

What Birds Want to Tell Us

Birds are concerned about our environment because they depend upon it.

So they helped me write this book.

This is a friendly book with a positive tone about protecting birds and the environment we (both us and the birds) depend upon.

It contains conversations with birds and other fantasies – all with practical actions that you can use. Most of these will save you money, improve your health, and provide greater comfort.

Photos 2021 by Steve Kaye, book cover 2021 Favorite Photos

Enjoy 47 special photos from 2021

These photos show and celebrate the incredible beauty we find in nature.

I realize common vocabulary refers to “Taking Photos,” when in fact, we receive them.

Since these are photos of wild birds and butterflies, none of them were planned. Or posed. So each of them was a gift. Each of them was a surprise.

Of course, I did go out 175 times seeking them. And from experience I knew where to wait, which helped a little.
