We have a new book coming out on June 30th. Hunting Vampires with Grandma is a humorous short story about, you guessed it, old ladies that hunt vampires. I have rarely written a story that had me laughing as I was typing and this one took the cake!
Here is the summary:
Age is just a number when killing monsters is your specialty.
When Markie is attacked by a vampire, she finds out that her lovable grandma is more than she appears. A retired vampire hunter, G is forced to get the old gang back together when the very monsters that the ladies thought they had hunted to extinction show up in their town again.
Between knitting needles and fanny packs, psoriasis and holy water, Markie will soon realize that age really is just a number and that a handful of cranky old women can be scarier than any vampire bite.
My favorite thing about this book is that each character is named after an indie author friend of mine. I hope you swing by and pick this one up. It is available for pre-order on these sites. Happy reading and I hope your summer is going great!
My review of The Good Pirate by Anita Kovacevic
Rating: 5 Stars
A wonderful story about a man who wants to be a pirate and find buried treasure for the woman he loves. The questions at the end of each chapter and word games at the end of the book are perfect teaching tools for teachers and parents alike.
A nice, short read for young children.
We are excited to announce that the second book in the Spunky’s Magical Adventures series is coming soon. Spunky and the Dolphin Palace will be released on May 28th, 2017. We’ll be celebrating the occasion with a Facebook party and everyone is invited. Here is a short summary for the book:
When Spunky the cat jumps on the magical chair after his adventure in Cat World, he expects to go back home. Instead, he finds himself in another strange place where everything, including the animals and plants, is made of candy! Will Spunky ever find the way home to his loving owner?
We hope you will attend the party to enjoy games, fun, and giveaways. Kyra and myself will be there with our own special surprises!

Once Upon a Pastry Promo Vid
Have great weekend, lovely readers!
Your eyes are downcast
You turn away at my gaze
I know your flaws
I have my own
They do not define us
So do not let them
When I look at you
I do not see a cast-out
I do not see imperfections
I see beauty
I see generosity
Kindness to friends
and strangers alike
I see a role model
A person to be admired
So keep those eyes skyward
Keep that chin raised
Let me see your lovely face
Let the world behold
The one who holds my heart
Illuminate us with the beauty
Of your soul

My review of The Rabbit Joke by Paul White
Rating: 4 Stars
A cute book for children and parents to enjoy together. Though there were some editing issues, the story shined through. My children were giggling and interacting right along with it as I read aloud. A fun read!
Crispy, crunchy, buttery sweet
Don’t care if you are white or wheat
Some want peanut butter, some want jelly
I just want you in my belly
Yummy sugar crystals and cinnamon
Three big bites and you are gone
Crispy, crunchy, buttery sweet
Delicious toast, you’re mine to eat

Hello Fellow Book Lovers! It’s been a while, but I wanted to tell you about a new book coming out today, Ashley’s Once Upon a Pastry. You can find it February 1st on Amazon in ebook and…
Source: New Release of Ashley Uzzell’s Once Upon a Pastry
Exciting news is coming in February, the month that is all about showing your affection to those you love. I’m releasing a new book titled Once Upon a Pastry! This is the first in a series of stand-alone stories called Fluffy Folktales; light hearted, clean romances set in a fairy tale world.
Here is the blurb:
Gertrude wants to be the best baker and pastry chef in the city so she makes a deal with Mona the witch: one spell in exchange for her first-born child. The problem is, Gertrude doesn’t have a husband. Or a boyfriend. Or much interest in dating at all.
As the overly dramatic Mona occasionally stops by the flourishing bakery to see about Gertrude keeping up her end of the bargain, both women begin to realize that maybe the deal isn’t what will bring them true happiness. Soon, something more than friendship begins to blossom.
When tragedy strikes, Gertrude finds that she may lose the only family she has left. Is Mona a powerful enough witch to save the city and help the girl she is falling for? Can she let go of her regrets so she can move on to find her happily ever after?
This book will be available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle format on February 1st. Check it out on Goodreads and add to your Want To Read list!
My review for Butters Comes Home by Claudette Melanson
Rating: 5 Stars
A sweet read for young children. The pictures were lovely, the story adorable, and the main character super cute. My three-year-old has a short attention span but sat with me during the reading of this entire book. She just loved the pictures.
