   “An Inspirational Writer whose illustrated heartfelt sentiments honor the memory of those dear to our hearts.


“It’s Not Goodbye, It’s See You Later” 

GenZ Publishing releasing inspirational book about life, love and loss.

It’s Not Goodbye, It’s See You Later is an 8½’’ x 11’’ full-color coffee table book that includes; beautifully illustrated artwork, inspiring quotes and a collection of Richard Lawrence Belford’s inspirational parables, accompanied by the stories behind their creation.

A parable by definition is a symbolic short story that illustrates or teaches some truth, religious principle or moral lesson and trust that Richard’s parables, along with his stories will stir some emotions in you that we’ve all felt, emotions that can help bring some small measure of solace to those grieving the loss of someone dear to their heart.

Now, although “It’s Not Goodbye, It’s See You Later” is about loss, it’s also about the lives and love shared by; mothers, daughters, fathers & sons; husbands, wives, sisters & brothers; grandparents & grandchildren; aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews & cousins; Not to mention, all of their families closest in-laws; plus each and every person’s inseparable best friend.

As just one of literally millions of people who have lived, loved and experienced loss Richard strongly encourages you to read this book. He truly hopes it inspires you to always try and say; “I’ll see you later, instead of goodbye.”

Richard has dedicated the book to the memory of his father not only for all he taught him, but also for what he has become and hopes it makes him proud.

It will be available at: Barnes & Noble Book Stores, barnesandnoble.com, amazon.com and amazon.ca and is being released in time for Easter by innovative publisher GenZ Publishing.
