    Before the adventure, before perilous questsâ?¦the short tale of three royal ghosts.

    In a land far away, there lived a prince who loved power. Carried away by his lust, he surrendered to its devices and usurped the throne from his older sister in an act of treachery.

    Imogenia unexpectedly finds herself in the Afterlife, having to navigate between Peace Paradise, the Unclaimed Baggage department, the Unfinished Business office, and other governmental agencies. Against a backdrop of soul music, she encounters all manner of new experiences from black, frothing, arsenic-spiced drinks to guest services personnel and plays host to the king and queen when they join her. While the medieval spirits are friendly and the experiences memorable, Imogenia has never forgotten the cause of her early arrival in the afterlife, and plots revenge. Her parents initially support a beta test she proposes to the Committee on Afterlife Affairs to punish her brother, the former prince now king, but grow weary of the conflict over five-hundred-years and petition to withdraw their support. What will Imogenia do? How will she realize the justice denied her? How will her actions impact others?

    Wasteland

    by Ann Bakshis

    Meg has spent the last twelve years of her life living in the Wasteland with a protector who has kept her in the dark about her origins, and trained her to be a fighter and weapons expert.

    What Meg doesn’t know is that she is an Antaean: s super soldier engineered to protect the country of Sirain from its enemies, then hidden away from the very cities that sacrificed many of their own people to design her. It isn’t until an attack by a group of unidentified soldiers leaves her permanently scarred, and her protector dead that she begins to learn the truth about herself.

    Trying to survive in a world of strangers, Meg discovers there are more like her: other Antaeans who’ve been hidden from their enemies. Forced from the Wasteland by the loss of her protector, Meg realized she must try to locate the other Antaeans before Sirain’s enemies do – or worse, the cities’ leaders – can discover and destroy them all.

    Tomorrow’s Guardian (Hourglass Institute Series Book 1)

    by Richard Denning

    Experiencing disturbing episodes of déjà-vu, eleven year old Tom believes he is going mad. Then, he meets the adventurer Septimus Mason, who shows him that he is a “Walker” – someone who can transport himself to other times and places.

    Septimus explains that these abilities could be removed leaving him, once more, an ordinary schoolboy. Given the hurt these talents have caused, the choice would seem easy enough, but it is not so simple.

    In dreams, Tom has experienced life as other “Walkers” in times of mortal danger: Edward Dyson killed at the Battle of Isandlwana, 1879; Mary Brown who perished in the Great Fire of London, 1666; and finally Charlie Hawker, a sailor who was drowned on a U-boat in 1943.

    Reluctantly agreeing to travel back in time and rescue them, Tom has three dangerous adventures before returning to the present day.

    Tom’s troubles have only just started, however, for he has now drawn the attention of powerful individuals who seek to use him to change history and to bend it to their will. This leads to a struggle wherein Tom’s family are obliterated from existence and Tom must make a choice between saving them and saving his entire world.

    The Hourglass Institute Series is a Time Travel adventure for Young Adults: Time Travel Sounds like fun until you try it.

    Prepare yourself for a thrilling dash through history as your read about the adventures of Tom and the Hourglass Institute.

One day she shows up at Alistair’s house with a proposition: she wants him to write her biography. Fiona says that in her basement there’s a portal that leads to a magical world where a creature called the Riverman is stealing the souls of children. And Fiona’s soul could be next. If Fiona really believes what she’s saying, Alistair fears she may be crazy. But if it’s true, her life could be at risk. It’s up to Alistair to separate fantasy from reality.

    The Riverman, by master storyteller Aaron Starmer, will leave you questioning the responsibilities of friendship, the boundaries of imagination, and the true originâ??and ownershipâ??of the stories we tell.

    About The Red And Blue Series

    Red Series Nonfiction books for kids are for children ages 9-12. This series is full of detailed and interesting facts and pictures about animals that will help children to respect and appreciate the world around them.

    Blue Series Nonfiction books for kids are for children ages 6-8. This series has similar information as the red series, but with different pictures and less detailed, easier to read text to hold a young child’s interest.

    A Note From The Author

    Nonfiction books help children learn by engaging their curiosity. Children are naturally curious about the world around them. Nonfiction books for kids motivate young children to read by tapping into their natural interests.

    The new Common Core Standards in education, adopted by the majority of schools in the US, balances the reading of literature with the reading of informational text. Reading nonfiction books helps children develop background knowledge and vocabulary which will help them to become more proficient readers.

    My nonfiction picture books about animals help children discover new facts and information about the world around them. Children will enjoy the fascinating pictures of animals in their natural habitats.

    The red series for kids age 9-12 is full of pictures and engaging, detailed facts about animals that will help children to respect and appreciate the world they live in. The blue series for kids age 6-8 has similar information as the red series but with different pictures and less detailed, easier to read text to hold a young child’s interest.

    I am a retired elementary school teacher with a BA in Natural Science from San Jose State University. I taught kindergarten through second grade for sixteen years in Rancho Cordova, CA. My love of children and nature has inspired me to write nonfiction books about animals for kids in order to awaken enthusiasm for nature and to promote literacy and lifelong learning.

    Plot (Small Skies Series Book 2)

    by R. D. Drabble

    The 2nd Installment of the Small Skies Series –

    If you recall dear reader, as last we met our good friend Dual Geller he was floating around aimlessly in the swirling maelstrom-like storms of the marvelous
    planet-sized machine that was the mighty Lorientâ?¦

    â?¦As many times before, Dual’s impulsive nature and reckless actions had contributed to him being flung into what was to be an almost-certain death.

    This story picks up largely where we left him, detailing the many twists and turns of his quite ludicrous escape(s) and subsequent more misadventures.

    Dual Geller was a man for whom to â??stop and think’ were things that â??other people’ did. â??Other people’, possibly less equipped with his superhuman-like luck, guile and expertise. Unfortunately for Dual, all these qualities were but assumed traits, and in reality his actions were a mishmashed jumble of ill-conceived plots and of badly thought-out notions. His whole life Dual had been compared to his namesake, and had been found not to measure up.

    The Dual Geller of lore, was all the things our Dual was sadly notâ?¦ a truly awesome individual who (without exaggeration) was a million-billion-million times the man that our Dual could ever wish to ascribe to – A moral compass that a young Dual could not hope to follow.

    Surely ’twas ne’er a man more brave, more true,
    What did re-right wrongs, and that monster slew.
    Unparalleled to all; created without seam or flaw,
    A caliber of man that they simply don’t make no more.
    It would be remiss not to add, that he did die before his time,
    With the swish of his tales, going straight from deed into rhyme.
    He was â??alive’ with his living, and then died (and was dead),
    An inspiration to live by (or at least, that’s what they said).
    â??Tweren’t nowt he’d not done, that extra-ordinary fella,
    That damned great fantasticâ?¦’The Great Dual Geller’.

    – Anon.

    Dream

    by Linda Cargill

    Sandy and her parents are opening a vintage clothing shop in Idaho Falls on her seventeenth birthday. Her parents sell clothes from the 1950s, and their house is decorated that way, too. Her bedroom walls are covered with vintage movie posters from that era. Is that why she gets carried away and starts to dream about a beau dressed in 1950s clothes driving a motorcycle? He only visits her at night in her dreams. It gets so intense that Sandy longs to go to bed just to go on a date. Other boys seem dull by comparison, and even her best friend can’t get her to go out anymore.

    One morning when she gets up there is a cut on her neck. It gets worse as the days go by. Has she injured herself? Has some animals gotten through her open windows at night? Sandy had better figure out what is going on and why her dreams are so compelling before she gets lost in them and never wakes up again.

    Dream was first published in German by Cora Verlag, Harper Collins Germany. It is now brought to you by Edward Ware Thrillers YA, an imprint of Cheops Books, LLC. If you liked Dream, you will enjoy other young adult thriller novels by Linda Cargill such as Candle, Bienville, Desert, Ancestress, and Avalanche.



    Bullies (Choices Book 1)

    by Anna Mestari

    This book is designed to help develop thoughtfulness and empathy in children. By offering several choices to a given situation we simply let the child discover the many different ways a particular scenario could play out. Actions always have consequences, and today’s society tends to somewhat forget about this. “Bullies” is part of the “Choices” series, a helpful tool for proper development of the humanity in us all.

    This book contains several different “paths” to take to move the story forward. The child is always in control, and there are many different stories in one. Our hope is that this will inspire some forward thinking in real life situations. It’s a good idea to consider the many ways one person’s actions can affect others.
