Dare (The Blades of Acktar Book 1)

 Courage could cost him everything.

Third Blade Leith Torren never questions his orders or his loyalty to King Respen until an arrow wound and a prairie blizzard drive him to the doorstep of the girls whose family he once destroyed.

Their forbidden faith and ties to the Resistance could devastate their family a second time.

Survival depends on obedience, but freedom beckons. How far does he dare go to resist the king and his Blades?

No matter what Leith chooses, one thing is certain.

Someone will die.

~OUTCAST~

OUTCAST is Book #1 in the Groundbreaking series THE BLUE DRAGON'S GEAS, followed by THE BLACKGUARD. (Book#2)

This debut of a series into the coming of age fantasy genre has made a definite splash. A wondrous mixture of the childlike main character and mature themes to quote one five star reviewer. It is the introduction into a whole new fantasy world with unique cultures, dragons and magic.

Alador, a young man who cannot find a way to fit into the world about him, finds himself thrust into the limelight. With a brand new world, new customs and of course dragons, Outcast offers something for both epic fantasy and coming of age readers.

Alador wants nothing more then to fit into the world that rejects him due to his mixed heritage. He does not fit into the world of his mother and he can't seem to bring to life the power of his father. And then of course, there is a girl.

Renamaum, a great blue dragon, wants to restore the pact between man and dragon that time and greed have erased. He petitions the council to find one who will fight for the future of both dragon and mortal.

Both come crashing together when Alador is caught in a geas so strong that neither could abandon it, even in death.

Rush Revere and the Presidency

 Join Rush Revere on another action-packed journey! Rush and his friends head back in time to the early days of our independent nation to watch the early American presidents George Washington, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson in action!

Hey there, young readers! Rush Revere here. I can’t wait to rush, rush, rush to history with our next adventure: a trip back in time to the first days of our country on its own two legs, free from British rule—

What’s that, Liberty?

Liberty wants me to say on its own four legs.

Anyway, as I was saying—free from British rule and creating a new government for the people, by the people. When one of the time-traveling crew from Manchester Middle School decides to run for student-body president, I take them back to meet our first three presidents and first ladies.

So, join us as we head back to those amazing and important first years, when we got to make all the decisions. Turns out, it’s pretty hard to lead a whole new country! We had to make new rules for America and set the path for the country we would grow up to be. And who better to be our first-ever leader than the general who won the war—George Washington!

He was the father of our country and made some incredible decisions that still affect how we live our lives today! But even so, President Wash­ington knew that he couldn’t stay president forever or we might end up with a king, just like England.

We’ll watch as he makes his tough decision to step down to spend more time with Martha Washington and his adopted grandchildren, Nelly and Wash.

Then we’ll saddle up and ride into the presidency of John Adams, who followed in some very big footsteps with the help of his accomplished wife, Abigail. Then we’ll rush, rush, rush to the year 1803, when Thomas Jefferson continues the mission of creating America by making a risky decision to buy a lot of land from the French in the Louisiana Purchase, which more than doubles our size!

Using advice from the early presidents, first ladies, and a former U.S. congressman, the crew works to defeat an old nemesis. The question is— will it be enough?

What are you waiting for? Bring your curiosity and let’s giddyup!

My Review 
Elaina, Tawny, Grace, and Steph along with a dog and a cat embark on a crazy adventure to open a bed and breakfast across country. From Ohio to Portland and finally to Maine, the fiery, middle aged woman chance meet many obstacles that will put their kindred spirits to the test. Getting strung up in a tree with the dog, encountering illness, meeting men along the way, their escapade will have you laughing and tearing. Jan is a mastermind at creating stories that stir the soul. Her characters are witty, humorous, lovable, very real and totally relatable. As I read ‘Merlot in Maine’ I thought of how fun it would be to hang out with these four women. Never a dull moment. Jan’s writing is so smooth and fluid. I was never confused or bored. Every page had something funny, crazy or touching. She must be a great cook as well because the dishes the gals cook are very tantalizing, you may just want to try them yourself. I know I will. Bravo to yet another 5 star read by the talented Jan Romes

Annabel Lee (Coffey & Hill Book #1)

 Fourteen miles east of Peachtree, Alabama, a secret is hidden. That secret's name is Annabel Lee Truckson, and even she doesn't know why her mysterious uncle has stowed her deep underground in a military-style bunker. He's left her with a few German words, a barely-controlled guard dog, and a single command: "Don't open that door for anybody, you got it? Not even me."

Above ground, a former Army sniper called The Mute and an enigmatic "Dr. Smith" know about the girl. As the race begins to find her, the tension builds. Who wants to set her free? Why does the other want to keep her captive forever? Who will reach her first?

Private investigators Trudi Coffey and Samuel Hill need to piece together the clues and stay alive long enough to retrieve the girl--before it's too late.

With its stunning writing and relentless pace, Annabel Lee will captivate readers from the first page.
Mike Nappa is an entertainment journalist at PopFam.com, as well as a bestselling and award-winning author with more than one million books sold worldwide.

After publishing the suspense novel, ANNABEL LEE, several readers asked Mike if it was "too violent" for religious readers. Unable to answer the question on his own, Mike assembled a fiction round-table with Ted Dekker, Lynette Eason, and Vicki Crumpton to talk it over.

The Cat That God Sent

 Jake Wilkerson, a disillusioned young pastor who is an expert at hiding his fears, takes on a new assignment at a small rural church in Coudersport, Pennsylvania. It's a far piece from anywhere and full of curiously odd and eccentric people, including Emma Grainger, a single woman and a veterinarian who dismisses all Christians as "those people," and Tassy, a young runaway with a secret. His first day on the job, however, Jake is adopted by Petey - a cat of unknown origins and breed - but of great perception. Petey believes that he is on a mission from God to redeem Jake and bring him and his quirky friends back to the truth.

Jim Kraus

Jim Kraus is a longtime writer and editor who has authored or co-authored more than 20 books, both fiction and nonfiction. His best-selling humor book, Bloopers, Blunders, Jokes, Quips, and Quotes, was published by Tyndale House Publishers, sold more than 40,000 copies and inspired several spin-off books. Jim, and his wife, novelist Terri Kraus, and one son, live in the Chicago area.
Also residing with them is a sweet and gentle miniature schnauzer named Rufus. Coincidently, Rufus is also the name of the dog in Jim's latest book, The Dog That Talked to God. "What a coincidence," Jim said. "What are the odds of that happening?" They also share space with an ill-tempered Siberian cat named Petey.
Jim recently was awarded a Master of Writing Arts degree from DePaul University. "Now, I am able to write more better," Jim said. (Yes, that is supposed to be humorous.)
Passionate about writing, Jim loves to create true-to-life characters. "I tend to be the one at the party that is on the edge of things--observing how folks act and react. Plus, I'm not that crazy about people in general--so it works out fine." (Again, it's supposed to be funny.)
The idea of the last book came from Jim's twice-daily walks with his dog, Rufus. "I tend to think through problems as we walk, and I sometimes, softly, pose questions to the noble dog Rufus. And if he could, he would answer them. I know he wants to. Sometimes I give his answers a voice. And I imagined that most pet-owners do the same thing. The idea of a talking dog didn't seem so far-fetched. And the story grew from there."

Sipping Sangria (Wine and Sweat Pants Series Book 2)

 Recently single and trying to make sense of her life, Elaina Samuels could've never imagined such an amazing six months. She'd met Tawny Westerfield, Stephanie Mathews, and Grace Cordray at a cash-for-gold event. They were there to trade in their wedding rings as a way to get a fresh start. Little did they know that fate would step in and put them together - first in the jewelry store and then to share their stories over wine in the bar across the street. They clicked from the get-go and a few weeks later, Elaina made an offer for them to move in to share expenses. Best. Decision. Ever.

Join Elaina, Tawny, Steph, and Grace as they continue their journeys to get life right-side-up with energy, mischief, chaos, fun, and a few tears.
Jan Romes grew up in northwest Ohio with eight zany siblings. Married to her high school sweetheart for more years than seems possible, she's also a proud mom, mother-in-law, and grandma.

Jan writes contemporary romance and women's fiction with sharp, witty characters who give as good as they get. The more she writes the more risks she's willing to take with her characters.

A hopeless romantic, she enjoys sunsets, sappy movies, and sitting around a campfire. Though she doesn't claim to have a green thumb, she takes pride in growing all kinds of flowers and plants.

The Irish Cowboy

 A touching, heartfelt tale of lost love, regret, and personal redemption.

The government wanted his land. He just wanted to be left alone.

Hap Wilkes is a spiritually fractured Montana rancher facing a painful past, an increasingly uncertain future, who now fights with everything left in a broken and failing body to keep the one thing still left to him - his pride.
The Irish Cowboy is a family drama spanning decades from the time of lost love, to a family found, and finally spiritual redemption and the always-present human yearning for love and forgiveness that marks the most personal novel to date from bestselling author D.W. Ulsterman.
If you enjoyed The Longest Ride by Nicholas Sparks, you'll LOVE the Irish Cowboy!

READERS CHEER THE IRISH COWBOY!

  • "The Irish Cowboy is a 10 STAR NOVEL - MY HIGHEST PRAISE! The author has outdone himself!"
  • "A great love story but an even greater story about liberty and freedom. If you worry about the power of the federal government, this is a must-read!
  • An interesting mix of romance, family drama and a war for one man's right to own his own land.
  • "A really great family drama of lost love, a test of faith, and a family finding itself. Prepare to cheer and cry at the same time. I absolutely loved the ending..."
  • "My favorite western romance of the year. Had me up all night laughing, crying and praying for Hap and Shirley to find their love..."

˃˃˃ AN AMAZON FAMILY DRAMA BESTSELLER!

"I've read D.W. Ulsterman's action novels so was a little surprised he came out with a western set in Montana. Well let me just say he did a wonderful job. There's action, romance and more action, and whole lot to say about how messed up our country seems to be these days..."
"The best real-life western romance this year..."
"If you are a fan of Christian-themed westerns with an emphasis on the family, you HAVE to read the Irish Cowboy..."
"A nice little romance that left me cheering for Hap and Shirley and their grandkids..."
"A broken down Montana rancher tries to come to terms with a lost love that he finds out isn't quite so lost after all in this excellent family drama by D.W. Ulsterman..."
"I read The Longest Yard by Nicholas Sparks and that was good. Then I read the Irish Cowboy and as far as romance stories go, the Irish Cowboy was better..."
"Normally I wouldn't touch a western romance with a ten foot pole but because this was a D.W. Ulsterman story I gave it a shot and I'm glad I did. Really lays out the plight of America's ranchers as they face big government that seems to only want to shut them all down..."
"A lovely story that keeps the romance clean and doesn't hit the reader over the head with the Christian themes. I'd call it an almost perfect story..."
"Lucky I had a box of tissue when I read this one. What a beautiful story..."
"Having grown up on a Montana ranch in the 1960s this hit all the right notes. I read a lot of historical romance/family drama books and this was one of the best..."
"As an animal lover this western was just about perfect..."
"Sure is nice to be able to share a story with your kids, and the Irish Cowboy is a western that allows you to do just that..."
"This wasn't just another western for me. In so many ways it felt like my own story. I'm not a failed rancher but I know lost love and the Irish Cowboy brought all those emotions back to me in what was a wonderfully told story..."
"The Irish Cowboy has plenty to say politically and does it in a way that fits perfectly in the cowboy genre..."
"Call it cowboy romance or family drama, or Christian romance, I don't care. I'll just call it a really great story..."

D.W. Ulsterman

"I just found a new favorite author and his name is D.W. Ulsterman!"

~Victoria Simcox's ~The Shard ~ Book 2 ~ In The Bernovem Chronicles



Victoria Simcox’s fast-paced, intricately woven sequel to The Warble, takes Kristina Kingsly and her schoolmates back to Bernovem … and into a thrilling, often dangerous adventure.
Kristina’s stay at summer horse camp is horrible to say the least, and it’s all because Hester and Davina are there as well, making her life miserable. When Hester’s cruel prank goes terribly wrong, it’s actually what sends the three girls back to the magical land of Bernovem. In Bernovem, Kristina is very excited to see her former friend, Prince Werrien. When he invites her to sail with him on his ship to his homeland Tezerel, putting it simply, Kristina can’t refuse. 



5 Star Review 
 I posted a blog review of a wonderful children's fantasy chapter book entitled The Warble, written by local Seattle author Victoria Simcox. Since then my daughters and I have anxiously awaited the arrival of The Warble's sequel, The Shard. I am happy to announce that the wait is finally over... and it was well worth it!

Being a fan of all things concerning faerie and otherworldly realms, I was pulled into the story of The Shard instantly. What I really love is how the author combines realistic teen issues with fairy tale fantasy. For example, the book's heroine Kristina who is from our world, experiences her first budding romance with a handsome teenage Prince from a fantasy world, all the while dealing with the very real insecurities young teen girls are feeling.

I was so taken with The Shard that I read it almost constantly until I was finished! The author has a delightful writing style that is engaging for all ages, yet not to difficult for children to understand. I truly look forward to the sequel to the Shard - the cliff hanger at the end is intense!

I highly recommend The Shard for all lovers of fantasy chapter books, which I feel that tween and teen girls will especially enjoy and relate to. 


The Freebie Fairy
 
Reunited with her gnome, dwarf, animal, fairy friends … and best of all, Werrien, things seem like they couldn’t get any better for Kristina. But when Werrien becomes fascinated with an unusual seeing stone, the “Shard” Kristina is haunted by a ghostlike old hag. Struggling against suspicion, guilt, illness, and ultimately the one who wants to possess her soul, Kristina will see it’s in her weakest moment that she will encounter more strength than she has ever known.

Marriage by Design: The Keys to Create, Cultivate and Claim the Marriage You've Always Wanted

 Reactivate Your Marriage!

“THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! You have written a wonderful guide by which couples, should they choose to apply the principles…offered through this book, will dramatically increase their ability to experience ‘a little bit of heaven on earth’ in their marriage.” —Pastor Fred R. Rodriguez, Lead Pastor Executive Presbyter SoCal/Ag...


“I found myself reading the situations discussed in this book, and having the words jump out at me remembering couples and families I have counseled through these very issues. How I wish I had this guide at that time. This book is a tremendous resource that should be present on every counselor, pastor, and ministry leader’s shelves.” —Sheila L. Harper, SaveOne Founder and President...


Marriage by Design serves as a healing salve to wounded marriages—as well as a warning to those beginning their matrimonial journey, and couples anywhere in the spectrum—offering hope and encouragement to those who want to revitalize, refine, or completely restore their relationships. Marriage by Design is loaded with practical tools and exercises designed to shed light on unhealthy modes of behavior and their motivations; it also challenges some of the beliefs we carry from childhood that can impact our current relationships.

Marriage by Design begins by establishing God’s foundation in marriage and moving through a systematic building process, enabling couples to apply scriptural-based techniques and concepts to their own marriages. If you’re looking to change a relationship based on inconsistent emotions and experience the freedom produced by intentional living—to move your marriage from stuck to stupendous—Marriage by Design is the tool you’ve been missing!~~

IDEAL GIFT FOR NEWLYWEDS...A WONDERFUL ENHANCEMENT FOR SEASONED COUPLES...A BEAUTIFUL WEDDING GIFT...A GREAT WAY TO SHOW FRIENDS AND COUPLES THAT YOU LOVE THEM!
Eric A. Disney is a Recovery and Personal Growth pastor at a local church in Norco, California, where he has served for two decades. He is a counseling psychology graduate from California Baptist University in Riverside, California. His ministry covers a wide variety of healing issues including addiction recovery, postabortion healing, sexual healing, and many others, and he offers a broad range of marriage, family, and relationship counseling classes and seminars. Eric conducts premarital counseling and has developed marriage classes for couples experiencing severe marital difficulties as well as those looking for marriage enrichment, both with a great deal of success. His passion for seeing people healed and marriages flourish has led to the development and implementation of several classes offered to the community. Eric has been an active member of the American Association of Christian Counselors since 1999. He is happily married to his wonderful wife, Jennifer, an author and teacher who is also very active in recovery ministry. Together they are the proud parents of two boys.

Aside from his family and his relationship with God, his passion is seeing people made whole. His passion for healing marriages stretches beyond the immediate family, it affects generations to come! 
My Review: 
Are you wanting to better your marriage by utilizing Godly principles? Perhaps you have come to the conclusion that basing the quality of your marriage on unpredictable sentiments isn’t working for you or your spouse. If this is you, then this book is what you are looking for. It moves through a systematic building process, enabling couples to apply scriptural-based techniques and concepts to their marriages. Geared to both husband and wife, Eric has jam-packed his book with wisdom filled scriptures that apply to all situations couples face from ‘having lost that loving feeling’, respecting one another, having a healthy sex life, dealing with children and so much more. There are questions to answer and great diagrams to help you relate. After reading it, I have convinced my husband to go through it with me as well. I am looking forward to see how it will enhance our 27+ years of marriage. I recommend this to newlyweds, seasoned marriages, and those who are planning on getting married…also highly recommended to singles preparing themselves for their future spouse they haven’t even met yet. There is something for everyone in this wonderful, God centered read.
