The Supernormal Ability Cookie Kids’ Club

by Sally Appert

Cassie has just discovered the one thing worse than having to do homework: having to do homework blind. She acts tough and tries to pretend she’s not losing her vision, but she wishes with all her heart that she could see colors again.

Natasha moved from China to the United States when she was little. She wishes her parents would tell her why they disappeared for two years when they lived in China, but all they’ll say is that they were “detained.”

Dayne is the youngest of eight kids and has to wear dumb broken glasses, since his mom can’t afford new ones. He wishes that, just once, he could be the hero of the family instead of the ninth wheel.

Then, early one morning, their wishes come trueâ??but not quite in the way they imagined. These three very different middle schoolers are suddenly united by two things: amazing superpowers, and a quest to make those superpowers permanent. Even if it means misusing them a little.



RENEGADE

by Mike Bloemer

When 13-year old Brett Morgan stands up to snowboarding legend (and school bully) Preston Jackson, he inadvertently becomes the newest extreme sports superstar.

Brett Morgan used to have an amazing life. His mom was a famous actress, his dad was an award-winning director, and the three of them enjoyed an extravagant lifestyle in LA. All that changes a few days after Christmas, however, when Brett and his family are buried alive under a mountain of snow on the Swiss Alps. Brett is the only one to survive.

Brett eventually gets used to his wacky grandparents (who host a paranormal radio show about UFOs, Bigfoot, and Elvis sightings) and his aluminum-hat wearing cousin in Aspen, Colorado, but it takes even longer to get used to his new school. At first he’s excited to meet his extreme sports idol, Preston Jackson, who also attends Rocky Mountain Junior High. That changes when Brett discovers Preston is really an egomaniacal jerk who is nothing like he’s portrayed on TV. But at least his cute cousin Max is nice.

Brett’s life gets even crazier when he attends the Freezer Games, a competition sponsored by one of the world’s largest media empires, Silverleaf Entertainment. To show Preston he’s not God’s gift to extreme sports, Brett sneaks past security and performs an amazing snowboarding trick that makes ESPN’s Top Ten list (and also earns him the catchy nickname of Renegade). The owner of the Freezer Games, Woodrow Silverleaf, goes from wanting Brett arrested for trespassing to wanting him to be his newest sports star.

Brett soon finds himself juggling school work, new friendships, a romance with Max, crazy teachers, even crazier grandparents, a psychotic multi-billionaire tycoon boss, and the most grueling teen sports competition on the planet. Will Brett overcome all odds and win the Freezer Games? Or will he crack under the pressure?

Renegade should appeal to anyone who is interested in extreme sports, particularly extreme winter sports. It’s a moving, light-hearted tale about perseverance, love, and standing up for what you believe in, no matter what the odds.

THE ADVENTURES OF HAIRBALL & ‘HOT FLASH’ GRANNY (Bodyslam Book 1)

by Mike Bloemer

Like a lot of 12-year old kids, Ben Boomer finds his family embarrassing. Unlike a lot of kids, Ben’s family consists of professional wrestlers who embarrass him on national television. That’s the premise of “The Adventures of Hairball & ‘Hot Flash’ Granny”.

All his life Ben Boomer has idolized his pro-wrestling parents, Hairball and Psycho Momma. And his greatest hero has always been his wrestling granny, â??Hot Flash’ Granny. But now that he’s getting older, Ben’s family members don’t seem as cool as they used to. In Ben’s defense, it is rather difficult to climb the middle school social ladder when his granny is whacking his dad with a steel chair on national television.

Ben’s crazy family soon becomes the least of his worries. Terrence Grand, the most popular kid in school, seems to thrive off of picking on Ben and his socially awkward friends. Ben finally has enough and joins the wrestling team so he can beat up Terrence in front of the entire school. Ben regrets his wacky plan, however, when he realizes just how tough wrestling try-outs truly are. In order to face off against his arch-rival, Ben must gain 20 pounds in 4 weeks. Even worse, Terrence’s dad is the wrestling coachâ?¦ and he does everything he can to make Ben’s life miserable.

Ben’s problems pile up when he’s drawn into a bizarre conspiracy involving his family. Ronald Rump, the evil CEO of Kings Wrestling Federation, has decided to move his juggernaut corporation to Chicago. And he has only one goal in mind: the complete destruction of Hairball and â??Hot Flash’ Granny’s wrestling company. If Ronald wins the so-called wrestling wars, then Ben’s mom, dad, and granny will be unemployed. Ben also struggles to woo the hottest girl in school, survive Ms. Wolf’s soul-crushing history class, and unite the nerds in a rebellion against Terrence and his army of jocks. Needless to say, poor Ben has a lot of problems, and not a lot of time to solve them.

This is a short story beginning into the life and after life of Cynthia and all those in her life and who she meet along her journey to Heaven.



The North Pole Challenge: a Christmas series (Flea’s Five Christmases Book 1)

by Kevin George

From IndieReader.com: “Part fantasy, part coming-of-age tale, part humorous romp, THE NORTH POLE CHALLENGE is both entertaining and imaginative. As the first book of five, the narrator skillfully positions his central character to have numerous other adventures.”

From reviewer Oh My Bookness: “This is a perfect children’s tale, even good for interested adults to read who like the holiday season and a twist on characters such as Jack Frost, Old Man Winter, and the creation of Christmas. If you are interested in taking a magical ride through the holiday season this the story for you or any child.”

Flea has always been different from other students in school. He’s not smart or athletic, he’s shorter than kids half his age, and his facial features are strangely pointy. His foster mother always warns him to avoid attention, though Flea has no idea who’s after them.

But Flea discovers several abilities that change his life forever: snowy weather follows him wherever he goes, he can stop snowballs in mid-flight and he builds anything in shop class in a matter of minutes, despite his lack of training. An appearance on The Great Build-Off – a popular construction game show – leads him to a magical place he only thought existed in Christmas stories.

At the North Pole, Flea feels even more like an outsider. In fact, the storybook village reminds him of every school he’d ever attended, complete with overachievers and underachievers, popular elves and outcasts. But during his training to become a proper builder elf, he discovers the North Pole has an arch-nemesis bent on invading elfish lands and ending Christmas forever. With a war looming against the South Pole, Flea’s sudden appearance at the North Pole is no coincidence, as he questions his role in the fate of the world’s greatest holiday.

“The North Pole Challenge” is not your typical Christmas story. Everyone knows about Santa Claus, his elves and the North Pole, but this book provides a fresh outlook on old familiar tales. Imagine Santa Claus as a reclusive loner, Rudolph as a narcissistic whiner, the elves as cruel party animals. And no great story would be complete without an enemy of epic proportions, another familiar Christmas name with a wicked past never before toldâ?¦

Until now…

READER REVIEWS

From reviewer Ionia Martin: “I will say, that I wish there were more books like this in the world. This book is appropriate for all age groups and would make an excellent gift for anyone. My kids adored this book and so did I. I can’t recommend this title enough.”

From reviewer Mandy2000 “I started to read this to my eight year old son before bed each night and couldn’t stop reading when I knew he was asleep!!”

The Christmas Tree of Doom: The World According to Perdita Whacknoodle: A Par Whack Adventure (Funny Dog Books for Kids)

by Jim Gibson

Another Whacknoodle Christmas Disaster!

If you’re read any of Perdita Whacknoodle’s other dog story books, you know that the Whacknoodle family of crazy dogs creates disasters wherever they go.

Why should Christmas be any different?

In these two Christmas stories for kids, Perdita tells all about her father, a dog she calls “Par,” and his crazy attempts to enjoy Christmas in the country.

Par is an adventurous scalawag, and he’s also the most wanted dog everâ??wanted by sheriffs, police, and dog-catchers everywhere. When you read her books, you’ll understand why.

A Sudden Massive Mashed Potato Explosion

It’s Christmas in the country, and the house is all decorated. Excited guests arrive for Farmer’s fancy Christmas dinner.

What could possibly go wrong?

A LOT, when the Whacknoodle family is involved.

When Par tries to enjoy the family’s spectacular Christmas feast, things suddenly go very, very wrong and Par creates a most unexpected Christmas explosion.

But Par is a quick-thinking dog! He keeps his head, even in the midst of everyone’s confusion, and he manages to snatch a wonderful Christmas dinner for himself before he escapes.

The story doesn’t end with the mashed-potato explosion, and Par creates a LOT more excitement before he finally eludes the angry humans.

But Par is very happy, and he knows he’s made the Christmas feast something no one will ever forget!

The Christmas Carol of Doom

In the second long story in this children’s chapter book,”The Christmas Carol of Doom,” Par’s elaborate plans to bring holiday cheer to the town of Dahlonega backfires in a very big way.

In this story, Par, and his canine singing group (“The Twelve Dogs of Christmas”) plan to sing carols around the town. Of course, they expect lots of free food in return.

Somehow, it doesn’t work out that way, and there is another big surprise, lots of exploding Christmas decorations, and an epic battle with Par’s sworn enemy Mr. Wimpy.

And once again, the dogs escape JUST as the police arrive!

By the end of the dogs’ first-ever holiday concert, Mr. Wimpy, is NOT at all filled with Christmas cheer.

But amazingly, in the midst of the chaos and confusion, Par and his dog friends discover their own idea of the real spirit of Christmas.

And for once, Laura (who writes all Perdita’s stories down) thinks that, even in the midst of all their nutty adventures, Perdita and her wacky dog family may be right.

It’s NOT Just Another Cute Dog Story!

You can find lots of cute, heart-warming dog stories.

But there’s never been a children’s book of funny dog stories like Perdita’s!

When you read Perdita’s happy chapter books, you’ll wonder whether YOUR dog thinks like Perdita. Is it possible?

Why not?

If you’ll scroll up the page to the BUY NOW button, you’ll be laughing atPerdita’s crazy Christmas stories in just a couple of minutes, and you’ll be sharing the Whacknoodle Family Christmas!

It’s Christmas fun you can enjoy all year with your kids. Or with your dogs!

Lady Rackham: An Unusual Tale of Piracy, Romance and Swashbuckling Upon the High Seas

by Alydia Rackham

Lady Gwendolyn Montgomery has defied her father, dressed as a boy and bargained passage aboard a merchant ship to save her beloved, who has been banished to the Caribbean. But when her ship is waylaid by pirates, Gwen must join with the flashy and dangerous Captain Lady Rackham if she hopes to save her betrothedâ??and avoid dying by hangman’s noose, or at the hands of Blackbeard himself.

“Stand aside lads,” came the answering voice.
Gwen screwed her eyes shut, fighting against the vision that rose up in her mind: the eye patch…the hooked nose…the beady eye…the fingerless hand reaching for her throatâ?¦
Tom sucked in his breath. Gwen’s eyes snapped open.
The pirates obediently parted for their captainâ?¦
To reveal a very different sight indeed.
Striding forward on booted feet came a young woman.
Strong and slender, like the blade of a sword. She had a sharp, beautiful face. Large, long-lashed eyesâ??black and piercing. She had perfect brown skin, except for a vertical scar on the right side of her face; and a set, intelligent mouth. Her eyebrows, dark and scrutinizing, matched the color of her streaming midnight hair, which hung curling, wild and windblown around her face and collar. She wore an elbow-length sleeved shirt, a lace-up, leather bodice; a broad, silver-buckled belt from which hung a long, magnificent sword and a small pistol; wide, baggy trousers and knee-high black boots with straps. Atop her head perched a black, white-plumed tri-cornered hat, and she had two dangling, silver earrings in her left ear. About her neck she wore several jeweled necklacesâ??along with a wooden cross that bore the word “MERCY.”
The lady stopped right beside the man with the pistol and they exchanged a glance. He nodded, then put away his weapon. The woman spread her stance, put her hands on her hips and grinned. Her gaze fell upon Captain Arnold.
“Good morning, Captain! How are you on this lovely day?”

______________________

The Culling is a Science Fiction novella by the award winning author, Melissa A. Craven.
Her other works include the Dark Fantasy series, The Immortals of Indriell.

The Culling draws you in from the very beginning, as good stories do. I found myself cheering for absent parents having raised their children to see biological diversity as a good thing. The characters and world building are fantastic. Loved the ending! â??â??â??â??â?? ~ Amazon Reviewer ~

The Culling by Melissa A. Craven was excellent, with heroic and simply outstanding characters. The interaction between Grant and his sister, Stevie really brought humor to a horrible situation. But that ending, wow absolutely incredible. â??â??â??â??â?? ~ Amazon Reviewer ~

When a confused Jasper awakes, he’s convinced he’s dreaming. But by the time he meets Greydor, Jasper understands that this is no dream.

Then there’s the other side of the coin: convincing Tavin and Dubb that saddling a Rinn isn’t certain death. (“It’ll be fun!”) And perhaps even a greater worry: can he make friends with Dubb’s daughter Darce before she punches his lights out?

Lily has problems, too. There’s a little mousie scratching in her closet. Or at least, it sounds like a little mousie. Oh, and her second confrontation with Curse, and trying to form her first peerin. (Don’t you have to be from Dain to do that?) And where’s Ebb?
