“A delightful romp! It’s snappy and happy and a great escape holiday read.”

About the book:

Dating while social distancing – a LOL read!”

“If you like Sophie Kinsella, you’ll love award-winning author Maggie Aldrich.”

Mask-wearing, social distancing Kinsey Mullrooney would rather not bring a date to the annual work holiday party. How will she keep six feet of distance? Besides, skipping it altogether to watch British telly is much more her style.

But when attendance “plus one” becomes mandatory, she’s forced to scour singles sites for a suitable date. Blimey! She’s got just two weeks!

Bypassing Ted the Serial Killer, she finds a fetching match in the Daniel Craig look-alike, Wyatt. The adorable couple sets off to the party in matching facemasks, chemistry evident between them.

Wyatt is everything she’s hoped for! Fun, friendly, and gorgeous! But when his mood shifts as they depart the festivities, Kinsey realizes she’s committed an uproarious gaffe.

She’s left the party on the arm of the wrong masked man.

“Maggie Aldrich brings to life all the things we love to hate about the coronavirus pandemic in this hilarious and quick read!”

Two worlds; bound by magic and divided by a door.

Monday, January 25th, 2021

 

The
Sand Prince

 

The
Demon Door Book 1

 

by
Kim Alexander

 

Genre:
Epic Fantasy

 

 

 

 

On
the barren, war-ravaged demon world of Eriis, the fierce queen Hellne
fights to keep her people alive and her son Rhuun’s heritage a
secret.
 

 

On
the green and gentle human world of Mistra, demons have faded into
myth. Only a handful of old men and fanatical children still guard
The Door between the worlds.
 

 

Different
and shunned by his demon kin, Rhuun finds refuge in a book that tells
of a human world of water and wonder. Forced by his mother’s enemies
to flee Eriis, he finds himself trapped on the other side of The Door
in the very place he has read and dreamed about—Mistra.
 

 

Chained
to the deadly whims of a child who guards The Door, Rhuun must
balance serving and surviving, even at the risk of exposing his true
identity. Riskiest of all is his task of kidnapping an infuriating
young woman who is about to find out that the demons of Eriis are
much, much more than just an old bedtime story.

The
Heron Prince

 

The
Demon Door Book 2

 

 

The
Demon Door can be opened…but the price is deadly.
 

 

Prince
Rhuun has found acceptance among the humans on Mistra, something he
could never have in the demon realm of Eriis, not even as heir to its
throne. What’s more, he has even found love with the prickly,
passionate heiress, Lelet va’Everly.
 

 

The
idyll can’t last. The prince has enemies who are after more than his
throne. They are out for his blood…which holds the key to unsealing
The Door between the two worlds, and the demons want in. When Rhuun
is lured into a trap on Eriis, Lelet has no choice but to turn to a
motley group of exiles, children, and madmen to help save him.
 

 

Lelet
soon discovers that, like all things, rescuing the prince comes with
a price. The secrets in Rhuun’s blood may be worth killing for, but
are they worth dying for?

The
Glass Girl

 

The
Demon Door Book 3

 

 

Love
opens all doors…but betrayal locks them forever.
 

 

Newly
blessed (or cursed) with wings and fire, Prince Rhuun of the demon
realm of Eriis sees hope for his life on the human world of Mistra
with his fierce human lover, Lelet va’Everley. She literally went to
hell and back to save him, and she’s not about to let anything—or
anyone—ruin their perfect future.
 

 

All
too soon, the claims of family, duty, and justice force Rhuun and
Lelet to confront new griefs and old mistakes as they attempt to
restore balance to the throne of Eriis. But, with every jealous rumor
and each vengeful whisper, friends turn, family schemes, and
forgotten enemies creep from the shadows.
 

 

Treachery
in Eriis and betrayal in Mistra jeopardize what Rhuun and Lelet have
fought so hard to build, threatening to tear apart the two lovers,
their families, and even their worlds.

The
River King

 

The
Demon Door Book 4

 

 

SOMETIMES
LOVE DOESN’T CHANGE THE WORLD. SOMETIMES IT CHANGES ALL OF
THEM.
 

 

Rhuun,
the half-human and wholly-reluctant prince of the demons, has finally
reunited with his fiery Lelet. It’s too bad they must hide behind a
facade of icy indifference to fool those who are determined to keep
demons and humans apart…by any means necessary.
 

 

There
is more at stake than bringing the miracle of rain back to Eriis.
It’s not just sand and lost royals poised to come through the
newly-opened Door. Something ancient is hungry, and fat, complacent
Mistra won’t stand a chance. Even worse, whispers and shadows speak
of blood magic that could destroy not just The Door, but all
Doors—forever—barring the way home for lovers and enemies
alike.
 

 

Will
the love Rhuun and Lelet have moved worlds to share be the very thing
they must sacrifice to save their worlds?
 

 

Full
of her signature blend of exquisite world-building, sly humor, and
poignant prose, The River King is the gripping conclusion to Kim
Alexander’s critically-acclaimed Demon Door saga.

This book will help redirect the behavior and mindset of children who are having difficulty understanding the value of Kindness

Saturday, April 4th, 2020
Wobbly Willie Bakes a Cake
by Richard Quisenberry
Genre: Children’s Book
Wobbly Willie’s Little Reminder:
What makes me special, you may not see:
my brain; my heart; the good in me.
All covered by a layer of skin, embracing diversity is where change begins.

Join
Wobbly as he embarks on a journey that not only teaches us how to
embrace our uniqueness but he reminds us of how to be kind to
ourselves. When we address these reminders head-on, the power of a
being kind brings us together. Wobbly Willie’s differences help
identify and bring awareness to what it truly means to be kind to
one another. This book will help redirect the behavior and mindset of
children who are having difficulty understanding the value of
Kindness, which results in a community that now is aware of the
valuable life skills necessary in order to make a positive impact for
generations to come.

 

Richard Quisenberry’s legacy is to make communities stronger. To do that, he informs them, equips them, and empowers them — in part as a transformation life coach, serial-entrepreneur, author, father, husband, best friend, child of God, lifetime learner but also as a modern brand acting as a force for the greater good. And in doing so, he is fostering deep and vital connections between the members of our communities and the world around them.
Focus and design your visions, dreams, and legacy to outlive you.
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.
