Book description: Written after the tragic shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, Love, Hugs, and HopeWhen Scary Things Happen is an invaluable tool for helping children identify feelings that overwhelm them with anxiety and despair. Author Christy Monson guides readers through emotions of fear, sadness, and anger, then lends constructive and practical ideas for how to manage such feelings and seek comfort. Lori Nawyn’s engaging illustrations help young children understand that hope is only a hug away

My thoughtsLove, Hugs, and Hope: When Scary Things Happen explains to children that bad things happen in the world and gives ideas on what children can do to deal with them and find help and hope.

The illustrations are VERY cute. They are eye catching and offer points for parents to talk to their children about the concept discussed on the page. It is a great compliment between the written word and the illustrations.

This is a great book to read with your child whether or not they are experiencing a crisis.

About the Author:   My grandmother lived with us when I was young. She loved to read me stories. I would curl up in her lap or sit on the bed next to her and listen to the tales spin out before me. We cried together over Lassie Come Home and loved Madeline and her adventures. That was a magical time for me in my life.

A fun  fact for me~  Christy and I became friends on facebook.  It was then that we realized that we had a friend in common, my husband's grandmother, Mildred Taylor.  It turns out that Christy and Mildred are neighbors.  It was fun to realize what a small world we really liv in

Blog Tour ~ "Keeper of Reign" by Emma Right (review + giveaway)

Keeper of Reign copy
Tour Schedule

Keeper of ReignKeeper of Reign by Emma Right
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Source: Netgalley for Review
Genre: Middle Grade Fantasy/Adventure

Book Description: Books written in blood. Most are lost, their Keepers with them. A curse that befell a people. A Kingdom with no King. Life couldn’t get more harrowing for the Elfies, a blend of Elves and Fairies. Or for sixteen-year-old Jules Blaze. Or could it? For Jules, the heir of a Keeper, no less, suspects his family hides a forgotten secret. It was bad enough that his people, the Elfies of Reign, triggered a curse which reduced the entire inhabitants to a mere inch centuries ago. All because of one Keeper who failed his purpose. Even the King’s Ancient Books, did not help ward off that anathema. Now, Gehzurolle, the evil lord, and his armies of Scorpents, seem bent on destroying Jules and his family. Why? Gehzurolle’s agents hunt for Jules as he journeys into enemy land to find the truth. Truth that could save him and his family, and possibly even reverse the age-long curse. Provided Jules doesn't get himself killed first.  

My thoughts: Keeper of Reign is a unique story. It begins as a King is bleeding himself to complete books. There is some kind of conflict happening and not many details are given to begin with.

The story jumps several years, Jules is an elfie. Elfies were cursed and shrunk in size due to the failure of someone to fulfill the King's wishes after his death. They were once normal size, and now an acorn is large to them. They are half elf and half fairy.

The king made five books. Each of these books was left with a family for safe keeping. This is how the keepers came to be. The identity of the keepers must remain secret to protect them from enemies who would love to see the end of the elfies.

A traitor has brought enemies into Reign, and now Jules and his siblings with the help of one of his friends< Holden< embark upon a quest to save their home, people, and hopefully end the curse. Along the way they find friends who help them to stay alive and avoid enemy capture.

The story is one that would appeal to middle grade and tween readers who love fantasy and adventure. For me the story seemed to drag in places and rush in others. The pacing was not as smooth as I like it, but it wasn't enough to keep me from enjoying the book.

Cover Reveal ~ "Love at First Slight" by J. Marie Croft

“It may not be universally acknowledged, but the unvarnished truth is that a young widow in possession of a good fortune is not necessarily in want of another husband.”

In this humorous, topsy-turvy Pride & Prejudice variation, all the gender roles are reversed. It is Mr. Bennet’s greatest wish to see his five sons advantageously married. When the haughty Miss Elizabeth Darcy comes to Netherfield with the Widow Devonport nee Bingley, speculation—and prejudice—runs rampant.

William Bennet, a reluctant and irreverent future reverend, catches Miss Darcy’s eye even though he is beneath her station. However, his opinion of her was fixed when she slighted him at the Meryton Assembly. As her ardour grows, so does his disdain, and when she fully expects to receive an offer of marriage, he gives her something else entirely ….

About the Author:

J. Marie Croft, a Nova Scotia resident and avid reader all her life, discovered Jane Austen's works later than others but made up for lost time by devouring the six novels and as many adaptations and sequels as she could find. In the midst of reading prodigious amounts of Austen-based fan-fiction, she realized, "Hey, I can do that." In her spare time, when not working at a music school or on a wooded trail enjoying her geocaching hobby, she listens to the voices in her head and captures their thoughts and words in writing. Her stories are light-hearted; and her motto is Miss Austen's own quote, "Let other pens dwell on guilt and misery." J. Marie Croft is a member of the Jane Austen Society of North America (Canada)
and admits to being "excessively attentive" to the 1995 BBC version of Pride and Prejudice. She can be contacted at

Release Date: 04/17/13

Summary from Goodreads:
In the future Dystopian society of Cabal, the government instills equality for all and offers its citizens the perfect system. There is food, shelter and jobs for everyone. The one requirement is to follow the rules without question, including the government's match in marriage and "The Day of the Chosen", a lottery that randomly selects families to conceive children as natural means hasn't existed in generations. Following her eighteenth birthday, Olivia Parker accepts her requirement to marry her childhood best friend, Joshua Warren, and is eager to start her work assignment and new life when it all comes abruptly to an end as she's arrested and thrown in prison. The only crime committed, her existence. Olivia is unlike the rest of the world born not from "The Day of the Chosen." The truth haunts the government and puts her life in grave danger as one simple fact would destroy the perfect system.

With Joshua's help, Olivia breaks free of prison and is forced on the run. Together they set out to find the promised rebel town in search of a new home and new life together. Their situation seems less than promising as they reach the town of Haven. New rules and customs must be adhered to in order to stay. Leaving would mean most certain death in the large expanse of the Gravelands. Time is running out as the government mounts an attack to destroy Olivia and bury her secret with her. Thrown into a world unlike their own, they must quickly adapt to survive.

Read an Excerpt!
Joshua and I both headed out of the council hall with Jacqueline leading the way. The line of young men had barely dwindled. I avoided their stare, their curiosity as they slowly proceeded forward, giving the attendant their name. I wondered how they knew about me and more importantly what they knew. Jacqueline walked a few feet ahead of us, giving us privacy to talk. I silently thanked her for still respecting us and our wishes. She was probably the only one in Haven who liked us. I didn’t know if I should be relieved or angered by the recent news. I could feel the whispers, like tingles against bare skin as we walked further from council hall and rounded the corner. I was grateful to be out of sight from all those curious stares. "I guess we should consider ourselves lucky," I remarked. I didn't feel lucky. I tried to sound upbeat, but everything was quickly falling apart around us.
            Joshua scoffed at the idea. "Lucky? I wouldn't go that far," he emphasized. "This is how it starts. Eventually, they'll make it a crime for us to see one another." He sounded disgusted.
            "They sort of already are," I remarked, trying to understand the council's decision. "I think they just want to make sure I'm protected." Though I didn't quite understand how setting me up to meet multiple bachelors was any form of protection. It seemed as if they only wanted to keep Joshua away from me. The one person I could trust, implicitly. I knew the rules were different because I was different. They didn’t seem particularly bothered by Joshua having a girl in his room. It didn’t seem fair.
            "Seems like they don't really care what we think at all," Joshua retorted as we headed into our building. "Were you okay last night? I worried when Landon escorted you out of the dormitory."
            I walked slowly up the stairs, Jacqueline just a few feet ahead of us. "Aside from being locked in a room with no windows." I sighed. "At least they're giving me freedom from the tech center and a real bed. I should be grateful," I mocked. I didn't feel grateful, but I knew his mother at least tried to make it easier for me. As soon as we crested the top stair, I froze in place. The building shook with an alarming intensity as the first drone flew low overhead. The downstairs chandelier swayed and I held onto Joshua's arm and my eyes widened in terror. "What do you think is going on?" I asked watching the movement grow stronger as vibrations echoed through the dormitory. A nearby painting affixed to the wall crashed to the floor, the glass breaking. I could feel the ground quake beneath my feet as Joshua grabbed my hand, refusing to let go.
            "We're being attacked." It wasn't a question. Together, we jogged briskly down the hall toward our rooms. I didn't know how much time we had. All I knew was the government was here, and they were searching for me!

Paranormal Inspiration
By Tia Silverthorne Bach

For as long as I can remember, I have loved reading and writing. I am drawn to all kinds of books, everything from a good character-driven story to pure fluff—anything that takes me to new and exciting places with intriguing new friends.

My first novel, Depression Cookies, was women’s fiction. Then I got the paranormal bug. Where did I get the fever, you might ask? I was first inspired by my thirteen-year-old daughter. She loves everything paranormal. Initially, I wanted to pre-read all her book choices (she’s my oldest, and I was on Mom-duty). So she handed me books like City of Bones and Beautiful Creatures. Soon, I was hooked.

But what intrigued me most about paranormal books might surprise you. Both as a reader and a writer, I love strong female and male characters. The more paranormal books I read, the more I realized they are about more than just ghouls and goblins, vampires, and werewolves. If you take normal teenage issues and amp them up with a paranormal twist, you have some real material to work with. The fear of fitting in, for example, is only heightened by adding the fear of fitting in as a werewolf or vampire.

Plus, the young adult paranormal genre gives my imagination room to soar. While there is a need to stay true to certain folklore and legend, there’s still plenty of room to create new twists and turns along the way.

At the end of the day, all writers strive to create a world that readers want to escape to, a world with captivating characters that stay with you way beyond the last page.

So for all those paranormal fans out there, what draws you to the genre?

Thanks so much, Lisa, for hosting me today!

"The Silver Strand" by L.J. Clarkson ~ Book Blast + giveaway

Tour Schedule

silver strand

The Silver Strand Ever since twelve year old Isabelle Tresdon’s silver strand of hair sprouted, it’s been nothing but trouble: bleeding pink dust and sparking like a firecracker. Refusing to be known as the girl with the freaky, grandma hair, she wishes it never grew and the hair withers and tarnishes. The only problem is, the strand is Isabelle's source of magic, and she can transform particles of energy into matter. It's also her ticket into Mastermind Academy, a secret school inside the earth’s core. Five days remain before the strand drains her magic and life, forcing Isabelle to enter into a deal with two trickster Masterminds to save it. But what she doesn't count on is there is more at stake than just her life. The Silver Strand, a MG Fantasy Adventure for 9-12 year olds, is book 1 in the Mastermind Academy Series.
louisaAuthor L.J. Clarkson One thing you need to know about LJ Clarkson is that she tells BIG lies. She tells everyone that she gave up her career as an Environmental Engineer and Project Manager to write full time. But that's not entirely true. Ten percent of the time she sleeps in. Fifteen percent of her day, she spends surfing the internet, researching for new books and her business. Ok, fine. Two percent is for research. But she's only admitting it so she doesn't end up like Boldrick. For eighteen point seven five percent of her day, she runs her promotional and support site for authors, called Indicated ( The rest of her time involves writing, reading, watching movies and TV, walking her dogs and falling asleep whenever her boyfriend talks technical computer lingo. Truthfully, she hates early mornings, mondays, grammar (yuck! just ask her poor editor!), broccoli and cleaning. If you would like to drop her and line and let her know what you think of the book, she would love to hear from you. Just not before 8:30am in the morning.

Read an Excerpt!

  Excerpt “Did you know Isabelle has a silver, alien antenna?” Bimouth’s voice sang out over the shouts and chatter of the school bus, capturing everyone’s attention. “In science class, a magnet flew out of Mr. Higgins’ hand and stuck to her antenna. How freaky is that?” Isabelle’s back pressed against her seat. Bianca leapt up like a jack-in-a-box. Her voice came out as a hiss. “Shut your face horse mite or I’ll shut it for you.” Looked like the bus ride might end in death. Bigmouth turned to face Bianca. “What if Isabelle’s antenna, like, turns us into alien zombies?” A chorus of whispers broke out. Catching the bus was a very bad idea. Isabelle prayed again for that black hole to open up and suck her in. Better yet, she wished it would gobble up the bigmouth. Isabelle tugged on Bianca’s arm and said in a low voice, “Just cut it off.” Her friend’s eyes softened. “You sure, Boof?” “The hair’s caused nothing but trouble since it sprouted.” The little voice inside Isabelle’s mind begged her not to, but she didn’t listen. “Ok.” Something in Bianca’s school bag rattled as she riffled through it. She yanked a pair of scissors free. Isabelle’s gut clenched as her friend laid the strand between the blades. “Wait!” She suddenly felt unsure about whether to get rid of it. What if it were special and magical like Bianca had said? A magnetic hair, although cool, was hardly magical. Isabelle decided to test it. Closing her eyes, she willed her strand to turn Bigmouth into a toad. But Bigmouth’s voice still carried throughout the bus. “And in gym class, like, she bled this weird, pink dust.” “Definitely an alien,” someone nearby agreed. So much for Isabelle’s strand being magical. “Cut it,” she said, exchanging a sideways look with Bianca. Her friend squeezed the handles together. Fuchsia-colored sparks shot out and scalded Isabelle’s right cheek. The strand sizzled and hissed like a firecracker, drawing the attention of Bigmouth. She shrieked like a real girl. “Look! Isabelle’s antenna’s on fire.”

Longing For Home by Sarah M. Eden ~ Blog Tour + Giveaway!

see the tour stops

Longing For Home by Sarah M. Eden
Rating: 4 of 5 stars
Source: Received to Review
Genre: Historical Fiction/Romance

Book Description: Twenty-six-year-old Katie Macauley has placed all her hope in Hope Springs, a small town in the 1870 Wyoming Territory. But if she wants to return home to Ireland to make amends with her estranged family, she'll need to convince the influential Joseph Archer to hold true to his word and keep her on his payroll as his housekeeper despite her Irish roots. The town is caught in an ongoing feud between the Irish and the "Reds" the frontiersmen who would rather see all the Irish run out of town and the Irish immigrants who are fighting to make a home for themselves in the New World. When Joseph agrees to keep Katie on as his housekeeper, the feud erupts anew, and Katie becomes the reluctant figurehead for the Irish townsfolk. As the violence escalates throughout the town, Katie must choose between the two men who have been vying for her love though only one might be able to restore hope to her heart.

My thoughts:  I love Sarah Eden's writing!  She hasn't written a book that I haven't anxiously started and finished. Well, I haven't read all of them yet, but I do own the books that I haven't read and will get to them sometime in the future.

Sarah Eden does well with writing  historical fiction.  This book takes on the 1870's in Wyoming Territory.  The subject is the poor public opinion of Irish Immigrants.  In this case the antagonism leads to a renewal of a feud.

Katie wants to work to earn passage back to Ireland.  She wants to return to her family to show that she has done something good with her life.  She feels guilty for the death of her younger sister, she was eight at the time.  She wants her family to forgive her.  She has been working and wandering for 18 years, seeking penance.

Contrary to her plans she comes to the attention of two eligible bachelors.  One is her employer and the other an Irish Immigrant who we meet early on.  Both are unique characters and add a lot to the story. I loved the shameless flirting of Tavis O'Connor. Joseph Archer is a devoted father and a man of honor.  The question is can one of them capture her heart and change her plans to return to Ireland?

Sarah Eden captured the time and heart of the community. It is a sad time in history.  I can understand the fear of locals to loosing jobs, but I have a hard time understanding how they could treat a community so poorly.

If you have never read a Sarah Eden book, this is a good one to start with.  She writes clean romance that will have you longing for her next book.
