A heart-tugging holiday story about the power of family, the beauty of kindness, and the strength, goodness, and courage inside each of us

Friday, December 3rd, 2021

The book:

Two children, orphaned through war and disease, weather the winter as best they can in the wooden box they call home. As this young man works hard to provide for himself and his little sister, he faces a gut-wrenching choice. He finds a large sum of moneybut he knows who it belongs to.
Will he muster enough courage to return it to its rightful owner? Or will he choose to purchase necessities that he and his sister have long gone without? Will they have a warm, full-bellied Christmas after all?
A heart-tugging holiday story about the power of family, the beauty of kindness, and the strength, goodness, and courage inside each of us.
Author Bio:

Stephanie gained her nickname “Steppie” from her brother, who had a knack for making people feel special and could make any situation fun. Since that’s the way she sees children’s book and as a tribute to her brother, that nickname seemed particularly fitting. 
Steppie is happiest surrounded by her family! She loved raising her five kids with a bedtime story nearly every night (even when they were teens—shhh, don’t tell) and happily indulged them with all the books they could stay awake for during her favorite time of the year: Christmas! (But don’t be fooled, she collected Christmas books before she even had children.) 
When not reading, she can be found writing, cooking, in a yoga pose, or sneaking a chocolate chip cookie—with milk, of course. She lives in Arizona where she enjoys the gorgeous winters, loves monsoon season, and doesn’t mind the heat. She continues her life-long obsession with the written word as a creative writing teacher and a successful writer of short stories, children’s books, and romance novels. She’s a devoted member of the American Night Writers Association, having served on their board of directors and as the Chair for their Annual Writers Conference. Steppie can be found @stephanieannmorris.author!

dead father. One lying mother. One giant secret.

12-year-old
Rocky’s father dies suddenly, and he learns the “his heart
stopped” story is bogus. Immediately after the funeral, his

town as if living there has become too dangerous. As his trust in his
one remaining parent unravels, Rocky is determined to crack the
secret about how his father really died.

listening to advice from his dead father who urges him on a risky
journey.

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.”

Deirdra has spent the last decade captivating audiences of all ages with her novels and fairy tales. Her specialty is paranormal theology that delves into documented historical phenomenon and natural disasters of biblical proportions.

 

 

 

 

Chances are you’ve tried and failed with spreadsheets, agendas, day planners, and other mathematical and finite ways of measuring time. Applying the strict regimes of industrial systems to a creative mind can kill creativity, damper the enjoyment of your work, and knock you off balance.
In this workbook you will learn to balance, organize, and prioritize all you need to get done by living your life in creative cycles and seasons while maximizing your high and low energy times the way you were meant to.
 
Your creativity is a powerful force that can be harnessed, focused, controlled, commanded, and become a powerful ability as you masterfully channel your desire to create into the powerful motivating force it is meant to be.

Grace’s Ghosts
by Stephenie Wilson Peterson
Genre: Middle Grade Fantasy
Twelve-year-old Grace and her feline best friend, Midnight, have a secret: Midnight is a ghost. But then again, so are the rest of Graces’ friends. 
Since she’s the only person in hundreds of years with the ability to see them, the many ghosts of Tansy have flocked to Grace since birth. She doesn’t mind. She prefers the company of the dead to that of the cliquey kids at school.
Grace is happy with her strange life, until one day, the ghosts tell her about the secret her town has hidden for centuries. There’s a reason there are more ghosts than living people in Tansy. Three-hundred years ago, a lonely witch cast a spell that mistakenly trapped the soul of every person to ever set foot in the tiny town. So when the spirits beg her to find a way to break the curse, Grace is eager to help.
As she searches for answers, Grace makes discoveries about the secret her family hid for generations and a world of magic hidden in her own backyard.
Grace soon realizes that if she succeeds in breaking the curse, she’ll lose Midnight and all of her ghost friends, but if she fails, everyone living in Tansy will face the same fate. Can Grace break the curse before it’s too late?

When she loses her sight, will she listen to her feelings like Grandma

Tuesday, April 7th, 2020

Sandra Kindt is always up for a good story, written or verbal, although there is that cookbook she won in elementary school that hasn’t seen the light of day. But the times she’s been caught reading historical novels with a highlighter—because there’s always something to learn—should make up for that. 


After earning an MA in communication, she taught Organizational Behavior at several universities and Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People in the corporate world. Her love of writing goes back to the journals she started in the fifth grade, when she fancied herself Nancy Drew. She loves to hang out with her four grown-up kids and six grandchildren. It’s like visiting the best parts of herself.

A mangy alley cat isn’t at the top of anybody’s adoption list. Nevertheless, when Grandma Sandy scoops it up into her arms, her heart nudges her to take it home, and she listens. Grandma always trusts her feelings. 
 
Lots of tender care soon transforms the mangy cat into beautiful, round Chubbs. But when she loses her sight, will she listen to her feelings like Grandma and learn to trust the one who loves her most?

The Many Adventures of Peter and Fi

Friday, April 19th, 2019

Please tell us your name?
My name is Kelvyn Fernandes, author of The Many Adventures of Peter and Fi

Kelvyn, where were you born?
I was born in Toronto, Ontario, but my parents immigrated to Canada from Mombasa, Kenya.

Cool…how long have you been writing?
Ever since I was a child, I’ve been passionate about writing. I’ve always had running storylines and new ideas constantly popping into my head. I’ve written a few short stories, but this is my first full-length novel and I’m excited to share it with the world.

Interesting, Who are your favorite authors?
My favourite authors are George R. R. Martin, Brandon Sanderson, and Haruki Murakami. Growing up, I enjoyed reading the works of JK Rowling, Emily Rodda, Kathryn Lasky, and Christopher Paolini.

Loved the Aragon Series too. Tell us why you wrote your new book?
I’ve always had ideas for fantastical tales and far-off adventures running through my mind. They would blast their way into my imagination, linger awhile, and then move on so the next idea could take its place. The Many Adventures of Peter and Fi is the first story that I will never forget. It’s the story that popped into my mind and refused to leave. The characters took hold and dragged me through a tale of incredible monsters, interesting characters, and jaw-dropping settings I had buried away in my imagination. It got to the point where the adventures started writing themselves. I had formed these characters so clearly in my mind that I no longer had to think about what they’d say or how they’d react. It was like watching a movie; I was just bearing witness to what they would do next.

I love it when characters do that. The Many Adventures of Peter and Fi, what is it about?
The Many Adventures of Peter and Fi follows the titular characters as they work together, each searching for something uniquely special to them through the four kingdoms of their known world. It’s a tale of fantastical beasts, peculiar characters, remarkable settings, and a unique brand of biochemistry-based magic. A story that focuses on meaningful character interaction, delicate world building, and intense action battles.

What age is The many adventure of Peter and Fi intended for?

I’d say the main demographic is 13-25, but the story is meant for anyone who enjoys getting lost in a fantasy world.

Sounds interesting. Is there a book trailer for your book?
You can find out more about the first volume and the plans for the Peter and Fi series as a whole here: https://youtu.be/SjR8NQWJoP0
