Standard

Good Day Folks,

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00074]Today’s adventure is the Anchor Group Publishing author Elizabeth Kirke’s cover reveal for Book 2 of the Curse Collectors Series. Wrought Iron Roses.

Title: Wrought-Iron Roses (The Curse Collectors Book 2)

Blurb:

Mure

Sisters Rachel, Angie, and Jo may have survived their first encounter with a curse, but hundreds more are lurking within their aunt’s antique shop. There’s just one problem: Peter, the apprentice, has no idea how to start teaching two untrained rune-casters and keep them safe at the same time.

Naet

It isn’t fair to Jo that she has no magic, but her sisters both do. She feels useless and left out. Worse yet, she knows that she’s a liability. She would leave… but, something in the shop is calling to her, reaching out … and she won’t leave until she finds it.

Ail

Every night, Angie’s dreams are haunted by a man who claims he was cursed, and she’s the only one who can save him. When she starts to get sick, Peter and her sisters are sure the cause is her mysterious dreams. How can they convince her that the person she’s determined to help could be the one killing her?

Eles

Rachel never expected to get a magic power and a boyfriend when she inherited the antique shop. Better yet, she’s actually good at curse-breaking. It seems as though she’s found exactly what she was meant to do. But, when a curse strikes two people she cares about, Rachel is faced with the harsh truth that she might only be able to save one.

Einstein & Moo, Author Jennifer Milius Wild Adventure!

Standard

Good Day Folks,

Time to introduce two fun cats Einstein & Moo book series written by children author Jennifer Milius. Your kids will love the adventures.

 

Jen Milius and the Einstein and Moo Children’s Book Series
 Lets meet introduce the two main characters
and real life kitties – Einstein and Moo.
Einstein is a flirty, nosey cat with some white around his mouth
and very white whiskers, thus how he got his name.
 He is quite talkative and will talk even more when it is close
to mealtime; sometimes, he will play fetch. Moo is short for Mooshu,
 the name of the little sidekick in Disney’s Mulan,
 although this Mooshu is more like the second sidekick in Mulan
named Cricket who is sweet and gentle. My Moo squeaks
more than meows, and she loves to climb in your lap and snuggle for hours.
Einstein & Moo and the Quest for the Catnip is the latest release
from the Einstein and Moo children’s book series,
which is about two black-and-white, brother and sister kitties
that are playful, curious, friendly and have many interesting adventures.
 Einstein & Moo and the Quest for the Catnip is book three within the series
and is about Einstein and Moo’s favorite treat, a green leafy plant called catnip. It grows outside, and even though they are indoor kitties, they want to find a way to get outside and have some. This may mean that they have to be creative and help each other, but to them, the treat is worth it!I was inspired to write about our kitties because of my love for animals, storytelling, children, and books. To me, when someone shares a book with a child, they share an act of love. So for this particular book, I was inspired by how much Einstein and Moo love the fresh catnip that my family grows in a little pot on our back porch. When they do get to have some, the kitties get the same amount of leaves; however, Moo receives her portion all at once and Einstein receives his one at a time, otherwise he will inhale his portion and all of Moo’s too!
 The first two books of the Einstein and Moo series are Einstein and the Leaf and Moo and the Case of the Mistaken Identity, and coming soon will be a coloring book based on the series.

Magic Carousel Adventure!

Standard

Good Day Folks,

Magic Carousel has been my focus of late. I have been working on my 6th children’s book this past week. James and Syvok will be on vacation in my home state Minnesota and have a mission they must take care which involves a carousel. I was doing research on the carousel at Como Zoo in St. Paul where I grew up.  I was rewarded with two surprises during my research. The first one is to my delight is that the Como Zoo is still free.   I went there often as kid and I took my kids there when I visited. It also one of the last places we visited as a family before my parents passed away.

The second surprise was the beautiful carousel that is there now was the carousel at the Minnesota State Fair grounds and it was saved from leaving the city of St. Paul by community members and placed at Como Zoo.  The carousel was ordered in 1914. My grandmother probably rode the carousel. I rode it every time I went to the state fair and all of my kids have carousel 3been on this carousel. carousel Check it out it has dragons it really is a beautiful magical place.

 

 

 

When I would ride I would dream about wild adventures truly loved the carousel they are so magical. Did you ride on a carousel? Do you remember where you imagination would go while riding?

Thanks for dropping in. Enjoy the adventure every day brings you, WB  WendyBookcaseLogo

Tomfoolery and 13 Yule Lads Adventure!

Standard

Good Day Folks,

Tomfoolery and 13 Yule Lads of Iceland

Tomfoolery and 13 Yule Lads of Iceland

I have been asked by many to do a post about the yule lads of Iceland. This was my favorite folktale while living in Akureyri, Iceland. When we moved back my kids remembered it and we were lucky the Yule Lads magically came to the U.S to fill my kids boots. My story adds a little twist as they one by one come down from the mountain starting December 12th. After meeting my young James and his mishap caused by the evil yule cat, that led James to thier evil mother  Gryla aka Old Hag while their father watched Leppaludi aka Ragamuffin. Thank goodness James pals save him from Old Hags pot. The yule lads decide to stay in James’ room while they drop off a gift for every well behaved child and have fun creating some havoc and tomfoolery along the way for the town and James.  One Yule lad almost does not make appearance but Matthias the dragon is ready to assist. This book has lots of action, adventure and fun on every page. I tell people it has three stories in one book. It introduces some of Iceland’s Yuletide season traditions. Iceland is full of magic and beauty.

Tomfoolery 13 Yule Lads Of Iceland and what do you get? A lot of Tomfoolery and Fun I’ll bet! The Thirteen Yule Lads of Iceland are much different than the Santa Clause we know. They are mischievous, troublesome, funny, and full of curiosity. Much like James, so when James visits them in their home with Syvok, almost gets eaten by their mother and is taunted by the Christmas Cat, they know right where they are going to come when they visit town the 13 days of Christmas. James finds out that the Yule Lads make the noisiest house guests ever when they come to stay. They clang pots, slam doors, and even bring their own lamb. However amidst all the ruckus what they create most of all is joy and fun for the holidays.

 This is  a book you and your kids will want to read all the time and at Christmas Time. It was my favorite story when we lived in Iceland. I add a different spin to the old legend.
