Ranger Book 1

A.L. Brown
Genre:
MG Fantasy, Fairy Tale Mashup
Take
care what you wish for. You just might get it.

 

 

Twelve-year-old
Casey doesn’t think life could get any more unfair. Plans for her
special basketball tournament are tossed aside by her sister’s
wedding plans. She even has to be a bridesmaid now, with all the lace
and silk and—oh, the horror! All she wants is an escape, but she
never imagined she’d be swept away to a world of Mother Goose
rhymes, fairy tales, stories of Arabian Nights, and oh, by the way,
all but one fairy godmother has been kidnapped.

 

 

Casey
learns she’s been summoned as the Fable Ranger to lead the search
and rescue of the missing wish-makers. But she’s not the hero they
want. In the world of fairy tales, damsels aren’t meant to swoop in
and save the day.

 

 

Now
all Casey wants is to go home, but the veil between worlds is on
lockdown. Taking fate into her own hands, she embarks on an airship
flight to find the phoenix tears that can open her way home. Her
journey would’ve gone as smooth as the perfect layup if it weren’t
for that pesky bounty the evil Dovetail has placed on her head. But
if Casey fails, the Arabian Nights will disappear forever—and leave
her trapped in a world unraveling one fairy tale at a time.

godmothers, but to rescue her sister Leslie as well.

 

Snow
White is now Snow Leslie, trapped in an off-script fairy tale that’s
doomed to spiral into a never ever after with the rest of Lorealia if
Casey, her father, and Charlie-boy fail their mission to stop a
war.

has the book finally realized it made a mistake in choosing Casey as
the Fable Ranger after all? Why is it rejecting her?

Monday, July 22nd, 2019
The
Dream Defenders
by
Neal DenHartog
Genre:
YA Fantasy 
 

A
vivid, dangerous dream world. Real-life consequences. Better ready
your defense.

When
fourteen-year-old Nolan Erling wakes up with a headache for the
fourth straight day, he suspects the likely culprit to be any number
of things—from his annoying baby brother, to vehicular crashes with
his elderly neighbor, or even his questionable late-night food
choices—not his dreams.

 

 

Aeryn
Sandman knows the true cause, though. She is a junior agent with the
DREAM Institute, a secret organization tasked with protecting the
world’s population while they sleep, and she’s on her first
assignment.

 

 

Her
mission: infiltrate Nolan’s life—and his dreams—and keep him
safe, all while persuading him to join their protective force.

 

 

But
recruitment missions are no walk in the park, and Aeryn’s goes
horribly wrong when Nolan’s powers unwittingly unleash two dream
creatures locked away in a restricted area of the dream world. While
Aeryn and Nolan search for ways to contain the escaped beings, they
uncover a much greater conspiracy.

 

 

For
these dreams can kill, and someone is orchestrating their actions in
the dream world. If Aeryn and Nolan can’t figure out who is behind
it, no dreamer will be safe, and neither will the organization that
defends them.

 

Discover
a book with a fresh voice, genuinely humorous characters, and a
compelling, original storyline. The Dream Defenders will
appeal to readers of all ages.

Snippet:
‘Touch me, Roosa. You will see I’m real
enough.’
Touch him? Is he as crazy as I am? Okay,
so I’m going to touch him, just for my own peace of mind.
I reach out my hand, fingers extended,
trying to reach him but not move from the wall. A crooked smile appears on his
face. He takes a couple of steps forward, reaches out and touches me.
Lightning heat shoots out from him, races
up my arm, switches direction and dives into my stomach. I snatch my hand back
and grab my belly with both hands. The burning sensation knocks my knees out
from under me. I slump to the floor, still leaning on the wall. The room spins,
and my head swims. Tears mixed with stars blur my vision so there is no focusing.
Not enough air in here; my chest tightens as if the lungs inside are ready to
explode.

Snippet:
Harmonia grinned at them. “All of these herbs can
heal the sick or injured, either on their own or as part of a mixture. Many are
common plants while others are harder to find. Some, if handled incorrectly,
can be fatal.” She motioned for the students to follow her. “To prevent any
unnecessary accidents, I’ll teach you how to identify the deadliest herbs
today.”
Denya’s concern changed to curiosity. She knew which
dangerous plants to avoid back home in Burrowville, but she hadn’t realized
some of them could heal.
In the rear of the greenhouse, Harmonia stopped at a
dirt-covered table bearing three different plants. She pulled iron tongs from
her pouch and clasped a long blade of grass from the first plant. “The
goldenslasher grows wild in the desert. Notice it’s several times thicker than
your typical grass and bulges in the center. It’s also sharp enough to slice
through flesh.”

 

Pulling trimmers from her pouch, she cut off a tip
about the size of Denya’s thumb. She switched the cutters for pinchers and
pulled a golden fiber from the center of the freshly cut blade. “Tea made from
this strand will settle the most nauseated stomach.”

It was the late 60s. The Beatles had washed across America like a
British tsunami, Vietnam was a grainy, green and black dose of unreality on the
evening news, a bunch of hippies had taken over San Francisco, and there was a
heck of a rainstorm pouring down on Woodstock. But I didn’t know all that then.
I was a little bit lost, looking for something. I swear I didn’t go looking for
a ghost…well, okay, maybe I did. But I didn’t expect to find one. Heck, I was
just a kid. I didn’t expect much of anything.

There’s a lot of mystery and a murder that’s been unsolved for decades

Monday, June 3rd, 2019
An avid gardener, artist, musician and writer, Emily-Jane Hills Orford has fond memories and lots of stories that evolved from a childhood growing up in a haunted Victorian mansion. Told she had a ‘vivid imagination’, the author used this talent to create stories in her head to pass tedious hours while sick, waiting in a doctor’s office, listening to a teacher drone on about something she already knew, or enduring the long, stuffy family car rides. The author lived her stories in her head, allowing her imagination to lead her into a different world, one of her own making. 

As the author grew up, these stories, imaginings and fantasies took to the written form and, over the years, she developed a reputation for telling a good story. Emily-Jane can now boast that she is an award-winning author of several books, including Mrs. Murray’s Ghost (Telltale Publishing 2018), Queen Mary’s Daughter (Clean Reads 2018), Gerlinda (CFA 2016) which received an Honorable Mention in the 2016 Readers’ Favorite Book Awards, To Be a Duke (CFA 2014) which was named Finalist and Silver Medalist in the 2015 Next Generation Indie Book Awards and received an Honorable Mention in the 2015 Readers’ Favorite Book Awards and several other books. A retired teacher of music and creative writing, she writes about the extra-ordinary in life and the fantasies of dreams combined with memories.

There is a hidden treasure in the
grand old mansion on Piccadilly Street, in a place called London, but not the
real London of English fame. There’s also a lot of mystery and a murder that’s
been unsolved for decades. But it’s the treasure that captures Mary’s interest.
 
Mary lives in this house along with her family, her Brownie friends and a
ghost. When the ghost reveals her secret about the hidden treasure, there’s no
stopping Mary, her Brownie friends, or her enemies to searching for this
treasure. 
 
Why the intrigue? Apparently there’s a little bit of magic connected
with this treasure. And so the adventure begins. 
 
Who will find the treasure
first?

My Review:

The Piccadilly Street Series, book two, Mrs. Murray’s Hiding Treasure by Emily Jane Hill Orford is a magical and great read for elementary school children. It is clean, easy to read and entertaining. The characters are well done, interesting and a good mix for children’s books. They consist of: a witch, Penelope; the savior and main character, Mary; her best friend and guardian, Rosie; the brownies; and the Ghost, Mrs. Murray.

In the first book, Mary gets sick due to an enchantment from Penelope and almost dies. While her body fights the sickness, her spirit appears in a magic world. When Mary finally comes back, the witch, her assistant Elizabeth, and a brownie trapped there a century,came back with her. In her quest to find Mrs. Murray’s treasure the witch makes life impossible for Mary and her friend Rosie. The brownies and Mrs. Murray are kept on their toes trying to save the girls.

This is a well done, great read for the whole family and a good addition to anyone’s library.

Snippet:
Once the house
settled down for the night, Mrs. Murray, the resident ghost, was out on her
nocturnal prowl. Satisfied that the house was safe and secure for the night,
after all the musical vibrations that shook the rafters earlier, she took her
place at the end of Mary’s bed and waited patiently for the girl to stir from
her sleep and take note of her presence.
            “What?”
Mary groaned, pulling her eyes open as she emerged from a deep sleep. “What
now?”
            “We
need to talk.” The wispy figure of what was once a very distinguished looking
lady, sat down at the end of Mary’s bed and looked the girl firmly in the eye.
            “Now?”
Mary groaned. “It’s the middle of the night. What time is it?”
            “What
difference does it make? Sit up and let’s talk.” The ghost was not going to
take ‘no’ for an answer. And, it would appear, feigning sleep would not send
her away either. So, Mary pushed herself into a sitting position and rubbed her
eyes again, hoping to eradicate the sleep that threatened to make them close.
            “Where
are the others? Where’s Brunny?” she asked.
            “Asleep
in their little space. And it’s not a natural sleep either. They’re all in the
deepest of sleeps, all except Elizabeth, who slipped out of the house a few
hours ago, just after the lights went out and your family snuggled in for the
night.” Mrs. Murray slid a little closer to Mary. “She’s still not right, that
Elizabeth. She’s good and well shackled by that witch.”

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

Love the cover by the way. 🙂 Where can we find your books?

The
Child of Happiness

S.V. Cobets
Genre:
Poetry
 
Edited
version

 

This collection of poetry is a summary of my selected
poems that I wrote for many years. I hope that you enjoy reading them
as much as I enjoyed writing them. In this collection of poetry are
collected all of my feelings that I want to share with you through
verse.
“The Child of Happiness, by S.V. Cobets, is a
beautiful poetry collection that reaches deep into the soul. Though
the author’s native language is Croatian and not English, the
emotional depth of each poem comes across clearly and will be
relatable across cultures. Sensual and light with themes of nature &
love, yet also tinged with feelings of sadness and darker themes of
heartache, pain, loss, & the casualties of war – there were many
poems that spoke to my heart.”

and the wildness of the desert canyonland the Apache call home. But
in one night of misunderstanding and mistakes, Knocks Down and Cactus
Flower’s innocent world is shaken as they find themselves locked in
the nearby fort with the pale face soldiers and their mother’s
lifeless body. With no one to lean on but each other, Knocks Down and
Cactus Flower must make their way as children of The People in the
pale face world—pale faces who have now become the enemy.

 

 

After
finding themselves at the mercy of the Army, far from Apache
Territory and well on the trail to Colorado, Knocks Down must bring
himself to trust the soldier, Pale Face Joe. But Joe disappears, and
when ordered to dispose of the children or else, the other Army
soldiers waste no time in depositing them at the nearest Catholic
orphanage.

 

 

They
manage to escape the evil orphanage along with a new pale face
friend, Kid McCoy. But they are set upon by a gang of murdering claim
jumpers who steal Cactus. With Kid McCoy’s help, Knocks Down goes
after her. When they encounter a soldier who was responsible for
their mother’s death, they realize he’s set on seeing them dead,
as well. How can a boy defeat a battle-hardened soldier? Just when
Knocks Down is about to give up, the biggest surprise of all changes
everything…

BookTube is a community ofcontent creators on YouTube that film videos about books

Wednesday, March 13th, 2019
The
BookTube Your Shelf Daily Reader turns one year old this March. [Cue
the party music!] The time has flown by so quickly. My to-be-read
list has expanded even faster. As a reader, you know that is both a
good and bad thing. LOL!
 
YouTube
for the Bookish?
YouTube.com
is the second most visited website in the world – where over 1.9
billion logged-in users visit each month. And each day, people watch
over a billion hours of video and generate billions of views. While
many people are aware of the music videos, make-up channels and
gaming channels on the platform, far fewer know about the great
bookish content available on YouTube. BookTube is a community of
content creators on YouTube that film videos about books. The
BookTube Your Shelf Daily Reader is a daily online newspaper
featuring social shares from booktubers (including authortubers) and
some bookish neighbors (like bloggers and readers). Are you familiar
with BookTube?
 
Once
Upon A Time…
Between
changes in YouTube’s algorithm and my book reading taste, it was a
struggle for me to keep up with my favorite booktubers and keep
a look-out for new booktubers. I knew many other fans of BookTube
were having similar problems.
When
YouTube changed it’s monetization rules in early 2018, many people,
including myself, worried about it’s overall impact on small content
creators. As I looked at my personal BookTube channel list, I
thought, “What can I do to help support and encourage bookish
content creators?” Then poof! The idea for The BookTube Your
Shelf Daily Reader popped into my head. [Yes, with a poof]. What
started out as an idea in March of 2018 has morphed into a passion
project with an online newspaper and email newsletter.
Find
Your Next Favorite…
One
of the goals of The BookTube Your Shelf Daily Reader project is to
help you find your next favorite booktuber. Check out the Videos
section of TBYSDR for suggestions on bookish YouTube videos to watch.
It features over 25 videos each
day. 
https://paper.li/Readeropolis/1517059010#/videos
Another goal of the
project is to help you find your next great read. In The BookTube
Your Shelf web newspaper, you’ll find a variety of posts like:

One thing’s for sure, the Twelve Days of Christmas will never seem quite the same again …

Wednesday, December 12th, 2018

 

Dividing my time between homes in South-West France and Abu Dhabi, I live with my husband and our beautiful Tonkinese cat. I spent 20 years as a teacher of French, Latin and Classical studies, before a change of career led me to writing books for children instead.
Shadows from the Past is series of time-travel adventures, featuring 3 children and a rather special Tonkinese cat by the name of Max. I’m currently working on the tenth book in the series, The Shadow of the Witchfinder. Max also has a few solo adventures of his own to accompany the series.

As I take my young readers on a magical mystery tour through the past, I’m hoping that my love of history, myth and legend will rub off on them too.

 

 ~ Website ~
  
MAX’S ADVENTURES are spin-offs from my 
SHADOWS FROM THE PAST books.
A second solo adventure awaits Max the time-travelling Tonkinese cat in this Christmas short story. 
 
Invited to accompany a well-known figure on a whirlwind trip into the past, he sets off on a mission to search for something very precious to his owners Jemima and Joe Lancelot – their missing parents. 
 
The hunt reveals tantalising clues to this mystery and ends with a special surprise for the twins.

 

Max the talking Tonkinese cat has a third solo adventure in this seasonal short story.

What happens when the feline hero is trapped in the attic one night?

Will he escape the clutches of the Christmas fairy, a regiment of soldiers and three obstreperous French hens in time to enjoy a holiday with his family?
 

One thing’s for sure, the Twelve Days of Christmas will never seem quite the same again …



Snippet Book 3:
EXTRACT 1: Struggling to break loose, Max thrust his head out through
the tangle of tinsel and took a few gulps of air. From downstairs, he heard the
distant chimes of Uncle Richard’s grandfather clock and counted as it struck
twelve times. It was midnight.
 

 

EXTRACT 2: ‘What the Dickens is all this racket?’ barked the wooden
soldier, glaring at the fairy as he rubbed the sleep from his eyes. ‘Why have
you woken everyone up? You know the rules, Tinks. Christmas is still months
away.’

Old Lady Hawthorne’s niece and her three children moved in next door, and Matt met Gerallt…

Sunday, October 21st, 2018
The
Secrets of Hawthorne House
by
Donald Firesmith
Genre:
Teen Paranormal Mystery
 
Fifteen-year-old
Matt Mitchell was having the worst summer imaginable. Matt’s misery
started when a drunk driver killed his mother. Then Matt’s father
moved him and his sister to a small town in rural Indiana, as far as
his grieving father could get from the ocean that his mother had
loved. At the new high school, three bullies were determined to make
Matt miserable. And to top it off, Matt learned that the recluse who
lived in the dilapidated Victorian mansion next door was none other
than Old Lady Hawthorne, the town’s infamous witch and murderer.
Matt’s terrible summer was turning into an awful autumn when
something quite unexpected happened. Old Lady Hawthorne’s niece and
her three children moved in next door, and Matt met Gerallt.

                                           

The Secrets of Hawthorn House by Donald Firesmith

Matt and Tina Mitchell are twins who just lost their mother in an accident. Their father takes them far away from the seaside they love to the small town of Hawthorn. There they find themselves next door to the famous haunted house of the ghost of the gray lady. Matt needs some money and starts to clean the yard of the haunted house for Mrs. Hawthorn, getting to know her and her timid ways.

One day, her niece comes to live with her along with her three children. Matt becomes Geralt Hawthorne’s best friend and soon discovers that his family is not the common family he is adjusted to. Their secrets, their corky ways, no electricity, no games or computers make for an interesting friendship. Not only that, but the bullies at school are after them…they will have to pull together or be defeated.

This is a great, clean and entertaining story for middle grade and young adult kids who like mystery, treasure hunts and magic. It is nicely done by Donald Firesmith. I would keep my eyes out for the next book in this series.

“Brùnaidh an Easain! It’s time you started living up to your name,” Peallaidh exclaimed.

“What?” Brùnaidh moaned. “You mean waterfall? And where am I to be finding a waterfall in this cursed place?”

“Sure and weren’t you just bursting water pipes this winter past?” Peallaidh chortled.

“That would make a bonny waterfall.”

“Aye, and a wet basement besides, with gads of giant folks traipsing through our domain to try and fix and clean the mess,” Brùnaidh pointed out. “Now why would I be wanting to do that? Besides,” he paced the small space between the wall and the outer brickwork, his feet barely touching the floor as he walked. “I think this family may be our key. The little lass needs watching.”

“The one they call Mary?” Peallaidh queried. “I can’t see how she can help. She’s but a hen, and a wee one at that.”

“But a whole lot bigger than you and I put together,” Brùnaidh noted. “After all, we’re Brownies and, magic or not, there’s only so much we can do.”

They are plunged into a whirlpool of hazardous and mysterious events when Dr. Khalid kidnaps them

Saturday, July 21st, 2018

 

I am a children’s author, but up until a few years ago, I was a journalist and editor. Something rather unexpected sparked my new career as an author—a family trip to Egypt with my mother and two young nephews. We had a great time and I thought I’d write them a short story as a different kind of souvenir…. Well, one book and a planned book series later, I had changed careers. I have now published Book 3 (The Temple of the Crystal Timekeeper) in my MG adventure series Chronicles of the Stone, with many awards for the first book, The Secret of the Sacred Scarab, and a few for Book 2, The Search for the Stone of Excalibur, and one already for Book 3! I also teach online novel writing for aspiring authors and I find that very satisfying. Relaxation time finds me enjoying something creative or artistic, music, books, theatre or ballet. I love doing research for my book series. I love animals and have written two animal rescue stories. I have two adorable (naughty) little dogs called Chloe and Pumpkin, and a beautiful black cat called Bertie.

 

In this exciting Middle Grade adventure set in Egypt, a 5000-year-old mystery comes to life. A scruffy peddler gives Adam and Justin Sinclair an old Egyptian scarab on their very first day in Egypt. Only when the evil Dr. Faisal Khalid shows a particular interest in the cousins and their scarab, do the boys realise they are in terrible danger. Dr. Khalid wants the relic at all costs. Justin and Adam embark upon the adventure of a lifetime, taking them down the Nile and across the harsh desert in their search for the legendary tomb of the Scarab King, an ancient Egyptian ruler. They are plunged into a whirlpool of hazardous and mysterious events when Dr. Khalid kidnaps them. They learn more about the ancient Seven Stones of Power and the mysterious Shemsu-Hor. They must translate the hieroglyphic clues on the underside of the scarab, as well as rescue the missing archaeologist James Kinnaird, and their friend, the Egyptologist Ebrahim Faza, before time runs out!
Snippet:
1.     The Giant Cobra
The snake jerked
at the sound of his voice. It glided closer to the stone sarcophagus. Adam lay
back on the pile of smelly bones and closed his eyes to half-slits. He looked
up at the ceiling where the painted cobra shimmered.
I can’t believe
this is happening. I know it’s after me.
The slithering,
scraping sound grew louder. Then directly in front of him, just at the edge of
the stone sarcophagus, the forked tongue whipping back and forth came into view
followed by the loathsome head, which reared up, its hood spread wide. Then the
snake opened its monstrous jaws, revealing wicked fangs. A clear drop of deadly
poison, glistening like a pearl, trembled on the end of each fang. The reptile
made a hideous hissing as it stared into the stone coffin, hunting for its
prey, waiting for the tiniest movement that would betray his presence. Adam
closed his eyes so he wouldn’t have to look into the snake’s gleaming black orbs.
I’m finished, he thought,
sliding his hand into his pocket and feeling the scarab. Somehow, just holding
it made him feel calmer.
Then Justin
called softly, “I know how I can distract it.
