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.

Back in January my local fabulous Library Director asked me if I could bring authors to our small city for the Summer Reading Program Kick Off Party. I said sure. So I called my friend Diane and asked if she would help me with this. She said sure.

Well then I found out their is no money for it in the budget. All the money was already budgeted for the program. I needed tents, tables, chairs and promotional items around $500. I had another wonderfully lady contact me who wanted to help organize the event. Kristy has been a huge help too. We came up with a sponsor the event program it. Wow, it has been very successful. I had the money we needed in less than 3 weeks. I would like to thank all our businesses, FSU, and others in Big Rapids who stepped up and encourage reading. Remember to buy local they support and donate to all our functions and needs.

The event is coming together very nicely. I have 25 authors coming from all over Michigan. By the way if there are any Michigan authors who want to attend I still have some spots open under the tent. Just email me at wendysbookcase@gmail.com

The event is going to be so much fun. I have gone every year. At Big Rapids Community Library June 12, Noon to 2PM. We will be kicking off The Summer Reading Program. This event is open to anyone adults and children.

Besides having 25+ Michigan Authors to meet and greet. You can sign up for the summer reading program, have some refreshments. There will be activities, crafts, and door prize drawings going on during the entire event. Don’t forget pick up the summer schedule for all the programs, movies, crafts, animals, and other activities for all. I can’t wait to meet the other authors and all the people who come to the party. Then afterwards hope to see many of you enjoying our downtown or events at Ferris State University. Our Library is the bridge that connects our University and Downtown Big Rapids.

Author Vicki Batman Adventure!

Standard

Good Day Folks,

Today I have the honor of introducing Vicki Batman. She is quite the character enjoy the adventure of getting to know award winning author Vicki Batman and check out her books.

 

vicki batman picture mayVicki Batman May 2015 Tour

BIO: Award-winning author, Vicki Batman, has sold many romantic comedy works to the True magazines, several publishers, and most recently, a romantic comedy mystery to The Wild Rose Press. She is a member of Romance Writers of America, Sisters in Crime, and several writing groups.
An avid Jazzerciser. Handbag lover. Mahjong player. Yoga practioner. Movie fan. Book devourer. Cat fancier. Best Mom ever. And adores Handsome Hubby.
Most days begin with her hands set to the keyboard and thinking “What if??”

LET’S CHAT: How much of your personality and life experiences are in your writing? So much so, my men are afraid anything they say or do will show up. My heroine loves handbags, chocolate, and Jeeps—just like me.

What kind of research do you do for a book? It depends. So far, the funniest has been about plumbing and fruitcake. For Temporarily Employed, I researched stolen car parts, insurance, cops. It helps to be mostly right.

When did you first think about writing and what prompted you to submit your first ms? I wished for a long time I could write mysteries like Dick Francis; yet, it took me twenty years to try. Wish I had begun sooner. Maybe my ideas needed to percolate.

Tell us about your romantic comedy mystery, Temporarily Employed. What motivated the story? Where did the idea come from? A friend challenged me to write the opening paragraph of a book using the word window. I used it and a lot more. My muse worked me for eight more chapters. I showed what I had to my friend and she said for me to continue.

Do you feel humor is important in fiction and why? I do. For me, writing humor in my stories comes naturally. And it is more real life. I’m not a doom and gloomy person. I select specific words for a funny result and write humorous dialogue.

What is your writing routine once you start a book? An idea goes Bing! And I take off, usually in dialogue with a smattering of the other stuff as it pops in my head. My first draft is very, very rough. I read over and over and edit and edit to get it perfect for my critique partner. When I get my critique back, I’d hoped all would be good to go, but alas, it never is. So I work and work it again. Then one day, I let go…

What do you do to relax and recharge your batteries?
Sounds crazy but I always workout. Every single day. I do needlepoint and chill in front of the TV with Handsome.
vicki batman book cover mayBLURB for Temporarily Employed: New Job. New Love. And Murder. Hattie Cook’s dream job is down the toilet and her new SUV violated. Desperate for cash to cover the basic necessities of rent and food, she takes a temporary job where she uncovers an embezzling scam tied to the death of a former employee–the very one she replaced.

When the police determine there’s more to the death of a former Buy Rite employee, Detective Allan Charles Wellborn steps in to lead the investigation. Overly dedicated, always perfect, he puts his job first, even if doing so ultimately hurts the one he loves.

Can the killer be found before Hattie’s time is up?

Children’s and YA Author Saoirse O’Mara Adventure!

Standard
Good Day Folks,
Today I am so looking forward to sharing about talented children’s and YA author Saoirse . O’Mara. She writes wonderful adventure tales for ages 5-18. check it out.

 

Saoirse O’Mara is a freelance writer of children’s and YA fantasy. 

 

She lives in Germany with her sweetheart and works as freelance editor,

 

 translator, and language teacher whenever she isn’t writing.

 

 

“I first started writing when I had figured out how to build words

 

 out of these weird shapes we call letters. My probably strongest 

 

 

memory of an early written piece is from fourth grade, when

 

 

My next strong memory, and my first finalized manuscript,

 

was an adventure book for children, similar to those by Enid Blyton–
my strongest influence back then and my favorite writer for a long time.
I simply loved her Famous Five and Adventure series, among others.
 I wrote that manuscript when I was twelve or thirteen, and
 completely revised and rewrote it again with sixteen.
It’s still sitting on my shelf and on my hard-drive,
 and I think apart from my mom, no one has ever read it.
It’s nothing to show around (I’m sure my writing style back then was awful),
but it is certainly something to be proud of. I started

 

and finished a complete manuscript.
I don’t remember when I started reading fantasy

 

 but it must have been pretty early on.
With twelve, I read my first book in English (I’m a German native)–
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, followed by
 Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets…and then Lord of the Rings.
Yes, I went from a children’s book to High Fantasy
with lots of difficult-to-read descriptions. To be honest,
I’m still not sure I actually understood all of the story
and scenery, but I managed to read through the whole trilogy
 and was hooked enough that I bought
and read The Hobbit a year later during a vacation in London.”

 

 I wrote a short theatre play that was almost shown at a school festival.
 I don’t remember anymore what prevented the show,
but I still remember clearly how we practiced for weeks in our breaks.
Introducing the books!! 
 
 5 – 10  K – 4
Benji loses his parents in a car accident
 and is sent to live with his grandparents in Ireland.
 The problem: He has never met them before, 
and he doesn’t speak English. 
Life in his new home is miserable for him 
until he meets some of Ireland’s mystical inhabitants and things change…. 

“The Enchanted Garden” is a modern fairy tale for young and old.

You never know when you might end up on the other side of the law…. 
Govin had no clue how much his life would change 
when he signed up for the City Guard in Davon. 
A fateful meeting throws him into an adventure
 he would never have imagined, not even in his wildest dreams, 
and he is left to fix the mess once known as his life.
 And if that weren’t enough, there is still a cunning thief to catch…. 
“Bardon put the quill down and scrutinised his work.
 The sketch showed a young girl with untidy hair, 
smart eyes and a cute little nose. ‘A pretty girl,’ he remarked. ‘Too bad she’s a thief. 
She might’ve grown up to become a beauty,
 but I doubt she’ll live long enough. 
The streets are rough, and the prison’s even rougher.’ Govin felt a pang of guilt.” 
Meet Govin and Tayla as their friendship begins. 
Their first meeting doesn’t bode well, 
but when faced with the choice to save themselves 
or do the right thing, they decide to stand up for each other.
 Soon, though, things get out of hand and they need help from others. 
Will they trust the right persons?

Things have changed since Govin and Tayla
 solved the mystery of the lost diadem.
 Tayla is no longer living in the streets,
 and Govin has a new mentor. Life could finally be good. 
But looming danger forces them to abandon their ordinary
 lives once again to get to the root of a mystery.
Only this time, the whole city of Davon is at stake…. 

“‘What does that mean for us?’ Govin asked. 
‘You have to be very careful. At this point, 
the High Mage doesn’t know whom of his teachers
 and mages he can still trust, and neither should you.
 Trust no one, do you understand? It could cost your life. 
I’m sorry that I have to send you on such a dangerous mission, 
but you two are the only ones I can send in disguise.
 The safety of Davon and the surrounding lands 
could depend on your success. Be careful.’” 

Follow Tayla and Govin into the Mage Guild of Davon, 
where strange things are happening at night. 
Is it just a prank of novices, 
or is one of the mages preparing for a dark ritual?
Buy here-only $2.99 Trouble in the Mage Guild
 
 
 10 – 18  4 – 12
Imagine you witness a murder but have no clue
 who the man was, or why he had to die. Imagine you 
stumble into a rat’s nest of piracy and greed and put 
your own life at stake for the sake of justice. 
Imagine you don’t know who you can still trust…. 
“No matter how she looked at it, she ended up with far too many suspects. 
How should she ever get to the bottom of the attack 
and the murder if almost half the harbour population had a motive?” 
Tayla would have never dreamed that her day off might end so terribly–
or that Govin wouldn’t find time to help her when she needs him. 
Yet she decides that justice can’t wait, and she follows her heart
 to right a wrong that happened in front of her eyes. 
Despite the dangers involved, her resolve stays strong. 
But who can she trust when the web of greed 
and intrigue threatens to ensnare her?

Blurb

“Who we were had washed away with the summer. Who we are was yet to be seen.”
Summer school at Alcott High was only supposed to gain Sadie Peters extra credit, nothing more. Her goal wasn’t to make friends, or gain the attention of the most popular football player, yet she managed both. Her life was cruising along on course … until that summer.
Could a simple stint in a different school change her identity completely and introduce her to love for the first time? How would that affect her relationship with Lily, her best friend?
Hopefully their friendship was strong enough to make it through the tumultuous summer. Sadie learns that great things come with change, but sometimes memories of the past are hardest to part with.

Author Interview

1. Where did the story idea come from for WWW?
I was actually in the middle of writing a completely different story when the idea came to me. I was laying in bed thinking about how when I went to summer school before my senior year, it really changed me. And that was that. My story was born. Sadie’s character came first. And I didn’t even know there would be two male characters until I was in the middle of writing the book. Things can happen like that when you don’t expect it.
2. How did you design such a beautiful cover?
I was lucky enough to meet a photographer who lives in Georgia. I wanted the models to be real teens who weren’t stock models. She did a private shoot just for the cover and within a few weeks, we had the shot. Then, from there the designer made it into the cover you see today.
3. One of the characters in the book is named Kyleigh after your daughter, does the fictional character share any qualities with the real one?
Yes, she shares a few qualities. Kyleigh in the book has hearing loss and my Kyleigh does as well. I wanted to have a diverse character who wasn’t like every other teen girl. Of course my Kyleigh is only nine so I’m not sure what she’ll be like as a teenager, so I had to use my imagination there. My Kyleigh is gentle and kind and so is book Kyleigh. She’s everyone’s friend and I wanted that to stay true in the book as well.

4.. Contemporary romance is a new genre for you. Can your fans expect more of this? Yes absolutely. I love writing Paranormal and they can expect more of that in the future but writing contemporary romance was so much fun. I will continue to write both.Do you have a WIP that you can share with us?

Yes. I’m actually writing a book called, The Librarian. I do not have an official blurb yet for it but I can give you the rough draft.
Emme Bailey was enjoying her life as a college student until the day her Gram passed away. Emme must leave California and head back to Maine to bury the only family she ever knew. Emme only meant to stay long enough to find a replacement librarian for the library Gram owned. Being a small town librarian was not what Emme wanted for her future but when she finds a special set of books, she may change her mind. She begins reading them one dark wintery night and is pulled into the first chapter, literally. She finds herself in 1892 England on a sunny day staring at the ever so handsome Jack Ridgewell. With each chapter Emme learns that you can truly fall in love with a character in a book. Full of deep earth shattering romance these books show Emme that sometimes you never know what you want until you’re forced to turn the pages.
6. When can we hope to see the WIP published?
I’m planning on publishing it early 2015.

Where is Scales? By Celeste Little Adventure!

Standard

Good Day Folks
index5 star adventure ages 5-8
Where is Scales by Celeste Little is a fun adventure with a life learning lesson at the end. This would be a fun story to read to children too. Children will feel like they are part of the adventure trying to help Tommy find Scales the Lizard at school. I enjoyed the story and think children will laugh and have fun with this story. The illustrations by Mike Motz are fun, exciting and add to the story. Tommy decides to bring his lizard scales to school. The lizard decides to explore and have fun traveling around the school. Tommy and his friends attempt to find Scales. They spot him but cannot capture him. At the end of the day Tommy thinks his lizard Scales is gone for good. As he is backing up his backpack Scales is sleeping after all his adventures during school. Tommy learns a lesson that he will never bring Scales his pet lizard to school again.

Here are the Amazon and Barnes and Noble Links for Scales. Take a look at the second adventure Tommy and Scales have.

Little Racel Dark by Kreina Gioertz( K.S. Thomas) Adventure

Standard

Good Day Folks,

LittleRacherCover10+ stars
Every now and then you have a book adventure better than normal. I met K.S Thomas(Kreina Gioertz) and her lovely daughter . Both K.S. Thomas and I won best children book awards at Turning the Pages Award Ceremony in Orlando April 26th. Her book “ Little Rachel Dark” won best children’s ages 6-8. So I down loaded the book, all I can say is wow. I would suggest this read for all ages. Only you can find your inner light and let it out for everyone to see. Beautiful important message for all! The story flows and I could not put it down until I finished the story. I have read it more than once. The illustrations are beautiful and add to the story. It made me feel all warm, tingly and best thing of all smile. The story is about a young girl who has no face. Her pet zebra Candy Stripe one day says I bet you have a beautiful smile and eyes under that black blur. The zebra tries to find her beautiful face with the wind, make-up, flashlight but none of those works. Shockingly when the flashlight was used to find her face it changes to empty space. Rachel tired and little of afraid of change and is use to her black blur. She has a dream about the sun which is blocked out by fog and dark clouds. Rachel wants to help the sun shine through suggests using wind. The sun tells her it does not need her help and laughs. It can take care of that all on its own. The sun closed its eyes and thinks of all the things that made it happy. The sun became brighter and was no longer hidden. Rachel asks how the sun did this. The sun smiled and said “It was easy; you have to learn to shine from the inside out. When you find your light, you never have to worry about being in the dark.” Rachel awakens and finds her light. The ending is a wonderful message of self-discovery and how fun the adventure is. This book should be in every elementary school. I wish I would have purchased a signed copy while I was at the book signing event in Orlando. I want this book in print.

Behind the Story
The story of Little Rachel literally came to me in a dream and I woke up with the title swirling around repeatedly in my mind as if my subconscious was making sure it would stick so I’d remember it once I was fully coherent. Thankfully, I did At the time, I had recently experienced the loss of someone very close to me and I was struggling with my own darkness. In a way, I think writing this story helped remind me of how simple it really is to turn on the light…when we’re ready.
Author Karina Gioertz (also writes under K.S. Thomas)
Dog Lover who likes her pastries full of cream and sugar….oh…and I write some
Aside from being an author, I am also a mom to a beautiful little girl. I tell everyone I named her after my great-grandmother (because that’s the mature answer), but really, I named her after my favorite princess – just so happens I got lucky and they had the same name…If I wasn’t a writer, I would work on a horse ranch – I’m an animal lover (in addition to dogs, horses are at the top of my list). I wear flip-flops pretty much everywhere I go. I would rather stay awake until 5 am than get up at 5 am (years of bar tending have left their mark), if I can, I’m going to the beach AND I will always be nice to people who bring me chocolate…or coffee…if you bring me both, I’ll probably love you forever.
A gypsy at heart, I write the way I live, following the story wherever it may lead, always ready to start the next one. This is clearly reflected in my body of work which to date includes everything from Children’s Lit to Thrillers.

Jenny’s Most Horribly Wonderful Birthday adventure by Crystal Clifton illustrated by Jodi Stone.
4 stars
This story is truly a birthday adventure. The book will make you smile, laugh, sad and happy. Jenny is all excited about her birthday. She runs with party favors to get things ready for her party and trips and falls and breaks her arm. Her mother takes her the hospital and she needs surgery to correct it. Jenny is upset no birthday party with her four best friends. The rest of her family comes to the hospital and try to cheer her up. Her mother leaves and brings in balloons, cake and her friends to celebrate her birthday in her hospital room. It is a fun, sad happy story. The story goes through the process of being in the hospital and how family comes together to make the best out of a situation. The illustrations by Jodi Stone are fantastic. They are bright, colorful and fun. I think children will enjoy the book. Please check out Crystal Clifton’s and Jodi Stone’s other books.
