Gambit, by Allen Longstreet Thriller Adventure!


Good Day Folks,

I really love being a writer and getting to know writers. My writing currently is sending kids age 7-12 on epic magical adventures when the dragon flies. I am blessed that so many writers of all genres have become a wonderful peer group adventure.  Every once in a while you stumble across an exceptional writer. Allen Longstreet and I became FB friends just by sheer luck after a comment I made which led me to unfriend someone on FB. I have enjoyed our conversations as young Mr. Longstreet has been working on his book Gambit. Once he published it, I downloaded it the day it was released.  The book grabs you right away and the action never stops. I have been telling many people about my conversations lately with young adults in their 20’s.  They have been giving me hope in the future of our troubled country. They get it and are trying to figure out how the put an end to the powers to be take over.  This fictional political thriller does just that. My review.

WOW! Author Allen Longstreet is a talented writer. I was on the edge with this thriller the entire read. I felt I was with the characters as they were trying to figure out how to stay alive and take down the powers that want to control the people. Mr. Longstreet takes what is happening today in our country and spins a realistic exciting tale of what it takes to put an end to corruption. Fear, being on the run, meeting others, love, loss, taking action and sacrifice in order to maintain the belief of the people to strive for a more perfect nation. Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the Earth.” – Abraham Lincoln. This book would make a great movie. Keep on writing Mr Longstreet.

The Bridge of Deaths, by Mcv Egan 75th Anniversary Event Adventure!


Good Day Folks,

Mcv Egan’s book The Bridge of Deaths re-released and is available now. If you love historical fiction, mystery romance, I recommend this book highly.  Check out the details below.

Bridge of Deaths Amazon Link- Just click on it.





“M.C.V. Egan twists truth and fiction until you question your perceptions…it is a story of real love, triumph and search for self.” – Beckah Boyd @ The Truthful Tarot

On August 15th, 1939, an English passenger plane from British Airways Ltd. crashed in Danish waters between the towns of Nykøbing Falster and Vordingborg. There were five casualties reported and one survivor. Just two weeks before, Hitler invaded Poland. With the world at the brink of war, the manner in which this incident was investigated left much open to doubt. The jurisdiction battle between the two towns and the newly formed Danish secret police created an atmosphere of intrigue and distrust.

The Bridge of Deaths is a love story and a mystery. Fictional characters travel through the world of past life regressions and information acquired from psychics as well as archives and historical sources to solve “one of those mysteries that never get solved.”

Based on true events and real people, The Bridge of Deaths is the culmination of 18 years of sifting through conventional and unconventional sources in Denmark, England, Mexico and the United States. The story finds a way to help the reader feel that s/he is also sifting through data and forming their own conclusions.

Cross The Bridge of Deaths into 1939, and dive into cold Danish waters to uncover the secrets of the G-AESY.

Join us as we commemorate the 75th anniversary of the crash of the G-AESY and the start of World War II with a month-long history-laden event that will entertain, educate, and enlighten you! As part of this event, a revised version of The Bridge of Deaths, this award-winning and highly-acclaimed account of the events of that fateful day in 1939, will be re-released.

MCVEganM.C.V. Egan is the pen name chosen by Maria Catalina Vergara Egan. Catalina was born in Mexico City, Mexico in 1959, the sixth of eight children, in a traditional Catholic family. From a very young age, she became obsessed with the story of her maternal grandfather, Cesar Agustin Castillo–mostly the story of how he died. She spent her childhood in Mexico. When her father became an employee of The World Bank in Washington D.C. in the early 1970s, she moved with her entire family to the United States.

Catalina was already fluent in English, as she had spent one school year in the town of Pineville, Louisiana with her grandparents. There she won the English award, despite being the only one who had English as a second language in her class. In the D.C. suburbs she attended various private Catholic schools and graduated from Winston Churchill High School in Potomac, Maryland in 1977.

She attended Montgomery Community College, where she changed majors every semester. She also studied in Lyons, France, at the Catholic University for two years. In 1981, due to an impulsive young marriage to a Viking (the Swedish kind, not the football player kind), Catalina moved to Sweden where she resided for five years and taught at a language school for Swedish, Danish, and Finnish businesspeople. She then returned to the USA, where she has lived ever since. She is fluent in Spanish, English, French and Swedish.

Maria Catalina Vergara Egan is married and has one son who, together with their five-pound Chihuahua, makes her feel like a full-time mother. Although she would not call herself an astrologer she has taken many classes and taught a few beginner classes in the subject.

She celebrated her 52nd birthday on July 2nd, 2011, and gave herself self-publishing The Bridge of Deaths as a gift.

I’m a Dragon by Sigal Adler Adventure


Good Day Folks,
This book was fun. Of course I am a little biased since I love dragons. Yes I agree dragons can do whatever they want.
I’m a Dragon by Sigal Adler . 5 gold stars   i'm  a dragon
The book is fun rhyming story with colorful fun illustrations by Abira Das. It is 12 pages long. I think parents will enjoy reading this rhythmic rhyming story that discusses a child pushing the limits. I also think young readers up to age 7 will enjoy the story. Children and parents can have fun acting out the scenes as they read.
Brief Synopsis
A young boy named Ron, announces he is a dragon for the day. This means can do anything he wants day or night. His dad has trouble with him throughout the day. Dragons only eat pizza, pasta and ice cream. He does not want to pick up his room, and does not have to ask permission to do anything. Bed time is the final straw, when the young dragon has finally pushed his tired dad and he loses his patience. His father turns into a dragon-dad with three heads. Ron thinks and decides he is not a dragon kid since is dad is a great big dragon and not much fun. It is time to end the game of being a dragon kid and start listening to dad, and go to bed and have a fun dream.

Wonderous Wednesday Children Adventures! Cecilia Spark


Good Day Folks

Just wanted to update you all. I loved Cecilia Spark. Can’t wait to download the Second book.The Adventures of Cecilia Spark – the Mystical Mountains of Terra (Volume 20) It is available in print right now. I think most kids will love this book. Reading level 2nd grade through 6th grade.

A little about the Author Nagaire Elder:

I was born and raised in Glasgow, Scotland. I spent most of my childhood playing outside with my brother and my imaginary friends and feasting on my granny’s homecooking.
I remember the magpie that followed me round my garden one summer and the day my grandpa found the wild bunnies which I had captured and hidden in my bedroom.
After leaving school I went to college and university (part-time) and embarked on a career in the health and safety sector, qualifying in 1993.
I met my husband through my work and we have 4 children.
Now I spend my time looking after my family, taking care of our collection of animals (3 dogs, 1 cat, 2 horses, 2 pigs, 3 ferrets and 1 budgie), nurturing our kitchen garden, learning Spanish, speaking Spanish, reading and writing.

This is my first children’s book and the first in the new series – The Adventures of Cecilia Spark.
I am currently working on Cecilia Spark’s 2nd adventure, which is called The Adventures of Cecilia Spark – THE MYSTICAL MOUNTAINS OF TERRA (updated 17 May 2012).
I published book 2 in my series in October 2012 – the Mystical Mountains of Terra is now available as a paperback (updated 01 Nov 2012). Join Cecilia Spark on her 1st BIG adventure.

Good Day Folks,

Side Kick Adventure


Good Day Folks,

Well I guess today is talk like a pirate day.  Shivery me timbers I have to wait until November for Stacey Rourke’s next Gryphon story. But alas mateys she has a short companion side kick story to tie us over. This adventure let us know who, what , when, where and how, Celeste’s sidekicks are doing in their day to day routine. Their is a surprise ending for us too and we are all invited.If you have read Conduit and Embrace you will love Sidekick Chronicles Gryphon Novella.

Download it today its only 99 cents and a fun quick read.

Now you can read about these sidekicks. Let’s talk sidekicks. I have many side kicks. Some folks consider me a leader.  I always considered my self a support member but I guess I do like to build teams to accomplish a goal. When I have a team I assess their strengths and weakness’s. Once I know what folks can do well, I let them run with those gifts and ignore their weakness’s. Once I build the team I  prefer to take a roll of cheerleader as goals are accomplished and let some one else take the stage. I take the lead when a ship is taking on water  and fix the leak and move the ship forward. I do not like to let good ships sink. Or I jump abroad full speed ahead of a well running ship like Anchor Group Publishing. When I hired There for You Editing. Dear sweet Melissa Ringstad suggested I send my stories to Anchor Group. Best advice I received. Been smooth sailing ever since. Anchor Group with Stacey Rourke as captain and Melissa as her first mate is one well run ship. I am glad I was allowed to jump abroad.  I also have been enjoying teaming up with three other kids authors. Cindy Springsteen, Jodi Stone and I are sailing along as a sidekick ship to Anchor Groups Big ship and have  been building a promo crew called  Lil Anchors. It has been so much fun and all of our crew have been spectacular. Big Thanks go out to the Lil Anchor Crew  they are a fun bunch, creative and help  promote our books. I prefer to stand in the back of the room and watch what was started or pushed forward and see the faces of success.  I surround myself with people who are willing to move forward on a project. I am lucky so far I have not made to many enemies along the way.  Mostly very good friends.

As you set sail on your adventure remember to fill the ship with lots of side kicks. WB

pssst….. below are some pages where you can keep up on the latest.

Golden by Monika Pardon. I loved this book. Begins with a young gal at her Grandmother’s funeral. Everyone is against her for some reason, she cannot trust anyone. Then an encounter with three bears. Yes three bears. She has been changed into something and finds out how important she is to the world or worlds. A lot for this young lady to take on. Not to give away anymore of the story.  I recommend this good read. It was fun and a clever way to find out what happens after an encounter with three bears. The rest of the story so to speak.

The Brown House


 The Brown House (The Visitors Series) [Kindle Edition]

Christy Sloat (Author), Melissa Ringsted (Editor)

Review: AB – July 16, 2012

Suspenseful, well written and a truly updated ghost story that fits modern times.

In her second novel, Ms. Sloat, once again delvers  an excellent read. Her main characters are well developed and plot line is excellent. The story was well revealed and the side characters were well written. They drew out her characters and plot, without overshadowing the main point.

Ms. Sloat’s themes were eloquently woven together and she finished them off in an elegant bow. I look forward t more from Ms. Sloat and highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a great ghost story to read over the summer.
