“Witches Tales/Cuentos de Brujitas”

Sunday, October 3rd, 2021

 

Witches Tale by A. C. Dye

Witches Tale came to be because of six little girls with very interesting fears or challenges that I hoped to quench in a cute yet poignant way. Halloween presented the opportunity since they all love this Holiday and were excited to be witches.

Since Spanish is my language, I decided to make my children’s books bilingual and enter that market.

In “Witches Tales/Cuentos de Brujitas” you will find:

A little witch who loves camping, reading her letters and colors. Therefore that tale has all of them included; in addition, you read it in a spooooooky voice.

A detective Witch that has to find all the things stolen from her family and friends, while learning a good lesson about respecting others property.

A Witch that is afraid of too many things to be healthy.

Another that loves to dance and had to figure how to include others in her performance.

The witch that doesn’t like to do chores and finds a way of doing them with a bit of magic as three new friends come to help.

The last Witch shows us that when we get scared, we may put ourselves in danger by staying alone. And that we can solve problems together and being safe is a better way.

Now, you have all six tales in one colorful book, “Witches Tales/Cuentos de Brujitas” by A. C. Dye

Wish

The
Otherworld Book 1

by
Victoria Harris

Genre:
Middle Grade Fantasy

Most
humans have forgotten their sparkle . . . hypnotized by the darkness
that obscures it.

Twelve-year-old
Cara O’Reilly always thought her father was teasing when he said she
and her sister had fairy magic. But it’s been nearly a week since he
went on a mountain hike and vanished-right after an argument with
Cara. She wished him gone, and now he is.

Cara’s
little sister Bri hasn’t spoken a word since his disappearance. In
fact, Cara feels like her whole family is under a curse. And it seems
like all the adults in their family are keeping some sort of secret.
Her world further tumbles into chaos when, after a close encounter
with a living, breathing fairy, Cara realizes the old stories are all
true. Now, she must find the door to the Otherworld to retrieve an
ancient treasure. But can she battle the darkness to save her
family-and the entire world?

Lorelei was the only one that could use the Heartstone, a crystal of phenomenal power, to keep mages safe from the Inquisitors that hunted them

The
Trueheart
Smoke
and Mirrors Book 1
by
Helene Opocensky
Genre:
Middle Grade, YA Fantasy


How
could Corbin possibly do what he was supposed to do?

After
Corbin’s mother died, Maxim Moritz Grobian took him, penniless
orphan that he was, under his wing and taught him the magic that was
their heritage. Corbin owed Max everything, and now Max had given him
a mission. Corbin was to bring Max’s estranged daughter to New York.
Lorelei was the only one, Max insisted, that could use the
Heartstone, a crystal of phenomenal power, to keep mages safe from
the Inquisitors that hunted them and allow mages to finally take
their rightful place in the world.
A
worthy goal, thought Corbin initially, but now that he had actually
met Lorelei all he really wanted to do was to run for the hills. Both
afraid of hurting her and endangering himself, he needed to stay away
from her, not befriend her to do Max’s bidding. Besides, his
instructions were more than to just befriend her. He was supposed to
make her fall in love with him.


There
was no way, absolutely no way he was going to do that – not after
what she had told him.

Richard
Quisenbury (Coach Quis) has achieved and is still in pursuit of every
dream he has set his mind to, including graduating from college,
becoming a principal, driving across the country, learning many
hobbies, traveling out of the country, falling deeply in love,
creating a beautiful family, and identifying his life purpose, to
name but a few.

 

With
over 40 years of experience in the educational industry, Coach Quis
is just as passionate today, as he was on his first day, about
developing tomorrow’s personal and professional leaders. As said by
Coach Quis, “If you want a different result, you must be willing to
first take a different action. With the near epidemic proportions of
unhappy employees, the need for personal and professional integration
has never been more imminent.”

 

Note
that he didn’t say work/life balance; he believes such a thing is
both impossible and undesirable for we spend a disproportionate
amount of our time working. Instead, the goal is to integrate all
aspects of life so we thrive at our careers & our personal lives
equally as well, where we aren’t leaving a part of us behind as we
spend our days at work wishing we were somewhere else… anywhere
else; or trying to be home with our children while distracted by the
things not getting done at work. Instead of balance, it’s the power
of presence we seek.

housekeeper’s body …

Picture
me sitting serenely at my desk surrounded by my four-legged office
assistants. The dog warms my feet, and the cat provides the purr-fict
background music. I sip hot tea, sift through handwritten notes, and
place fingers on the keyboard as thoughts take shape. Such is the joy
of writing.

 

As
a child, I took a book everywhere—to family dinners, to doctor’s
offices, and of course to bed. Years later, a newspaper article
inspired me to put pen to paper and submit my thoughts—my words—to
the editor. Before I knew it, I was writing weekly columns and blogs.
Then came a book co-written with my dog. (What? Doesn’t everyone do
that?)
Now
I’m living a dream I never knew I had—writing cozy animal
mysteries featuring a dog and cat who talk to their owner. If a dog
can write a book, surely animals can communicate. Naturally, my
office assistants help with the dialogue. And, yes, they are angling
to be listed as co-authors.
By
the way, if you can’t find me, I’m traveling in the UK doing
research for my next mystery—don’t judge.

ABCs and 123s for Boys; It’s far more engaging than an ‘A is for Apple’ book. And when kids are engaged, they’re learning

Friday, December 18th, 2020

 

 

ABCs
and 123s for Boys

 

by
Tom McLaughlin

 

Genre:
Children’s Picture Book

 

 

Pirates,
Ninjas, and Dinosaurs Romp Through the ABCs!

 

Preschoolers
will love the “ABCs and 123s for Boys” book and coloring book

 

 

It’s
not Christmas “crunch time.” But, given your procrastination
track record, MAYBE IT IS TIME to make some holiday
decisions.

 

No,
we’re not talking about picking the ugly sweater for your company’s
“Zoom” Christmas party.

 

But
if preschoolers are on your gift list, you can skip the Black Friday
lines with a fun, new ABCs book that:

 

·         Falls
into the category of “Aww, that’s adorable”

 

·         Qualifies
as a “Stocking stuffer” and

 

·         Checks
the box for “Buy this. We don’t want Little Johnny to fail
preschool!”

 

If
a preschooler is in your home, family, or circle of friends, 
ABCs
and 123s for Boys
 is
a great storytime addition. Kids will laugh and learn with this romp
through the alphabet.  

 

ABCs
and 123s for Boys
 brings the alphabet to life with dozens of
entertaining characters. From ALEX the Alligator (an astronaut) to
ZACK the Zebra (ziplining over the zoo), each letter features
different boy’s name, fun rhyme, and scene.

 

Picture Dr.
Seuss meets Sesame Street,” says author Tom McLaughlin. “Each
page of ABCs
and 123s for Boys
 is
wonderfully fun – featuring pirates and ninjas to sharks and
dinosaurs.”

 

This
clever, illustrated book makes learning the ABCs and numbers easy.
There are hidden surprises on pages. (Look for ants sneaking away
with food.) Kids will find and count the birds, fish, and
animals. Plus, kids will love the surprise ending. You can
personalize the story with your child’s name on the last page!

 

ABCs
and 123s for Boys
 gives kids an extra serving of storytime
fun. “Kids will love HANK the Hippo and the other characters,”
adds McLaughlin. “It’s far more engaging than an ‘A is for
Apple’ book. And when kids are engaged, they’re learning.”

with the books and you have a great Christmas gift.

and 123s for Boys Coloring Book
