I am pleaded to announce the release of two new books for kids from fellow authors that I admire.

"If we take a special one from the sea, the sea will take a special one from us. Or maybe, Little Orchid thinks, a not-so-special one."

Little Orchid's Sea Monster Trouble is written by fellow author, Claudine Gueh Yanting, for readers 9 and up. It is a story about Little Orchid, a 9 year old girl who thinks she causes too much trouble for her family. Set in a Malaysian fishing village in the 1960s, Little Orchid discovers her mother's trust and family's love when she turns into a cuttlefish. It is an excellent book for kids, but also for parents, grandparents, and anyone who loves children and worry about their feelings. It is available as an ebook through Amazon from Carryusoffbooks. You can also follow her blog like I do at

"When a new girl comes to town, nothing in AJ's life is safe from disaster . . . not even cheer leading and chocolate."

Written by the author of The Freedom Thief, Mikki Sadil, Cheers, Chocolate, and Other Disasters is for the tween and teen reader. I am only half way through the book at this post, but I can tell you it is a great read and Mikki is a fantastic author. 

AJ has everything going for her--a championship mare, cheer leading, and great best friends until her world gets turned upside down. AJ becomes the victim of psychological and emotional bullying (and you all know how I feel about bullying). It is available at all ebook retailers from MuseitUp Publishing. 

I love Mikki's blog. You  can follow it with me at
