But now with her people dividing, Hannah must choose between her faith and her family. Should she follow Nephi again, or stay with her husband, Lemuel, and her son in sin and misery? This compelling novel tells the familiar scripture story from an illuminating new perspective. MY REVIEW: This story takes the reader through the author’s imagination of what the daughters of Ishmael lives were like – especially that of Hannah. It explains in further details the concept of how Lehi’s family and Ishmael’s possibly interacted before Lehi’s sons were sent back to persuade Ishmael to join them in their trek to the “Promised Land”. The author has created an entertaining and interesting tale of how it must have been. Along…

Adult Books / January 9, 2017

Historian Fiction fans will love this one!  Be sure to enter the Giveaway at the end of this posting. Thank you Covenant Comminications for this  Book Tout/Giveaway! England, 1857 The British aristocracy is an inflexible judge. And for Amala, a lovely young Indian woman, that judgment is most keenly felt. Raised from a child by the wealthy Hepworth family following the murder of her parents, Amala grew up alongside the Hepworth’s own daughter, Katarina, and was loved as both sister and daughter. The family is part of the charmed circle of the upper class, but Amala’s place in society is tenuous. As an Indian woman, her life is marked by a sense of otherness and voices of prejudice. So when she embarks upon a sweet acquaintance with Henry Breckenridge, a white Englishman, Amala is both elated and terrified. She knows first-hand the opposition that an interracial couple would face, and courtship with Henry could destroy his standing in society. Determined to spare the reputations of both Henry and her sister Katarina, Amala flees England with the hope that an extended trip will allow her time to heal her broken heart. But she never imagined the repercussions of that decision, and…

M9B Friday Reveal & Giveaway: PROJECT EMERJENCE by Jamie Zakian! (ends 1/12/17)
Uncategorized / January 6, 2017

    Today Jamie Zakian and Month9Books are revealing the cover and first chapter for PROJECT EMERGENCE which releases March 14, 2017! Check out the gorgeous cover and enter to be one of the first readers to receive a eGalley!!   A quick note from the author:   I’ve always dreamed of writing an epic sci-fi thriller. I knew I wanted it to involve a group of teens leaving a dead Earth to start new lives on a terra formed Mars, but I didn’t have any ideas on how to make the plot exciting. Then, a song I never heard before played on my Pandora app. Escape by Rogue. As that song blasted through my headphones, the entire story that is Project Emergence streamed through my mind like a movie trailer. So, I went straight to work. It took months of frantic writing, almost a year of editing, and a mini rewrite, but that moment of inspiration became my first YA novel.   Project Emergence is a fast-paced thrill ride across the stars. It shows the extent people will go to uphold their beliefs, and that love can overcome any evil. On to the reveal!    Title: PROJECT EMERGENCE  Author: Jamie…

LET’S HUG and THE UNUSUALASAURAS Spotlight Tour & International Giveaway! (ends 1/28/16)
Children's Books / January 3, 2017

I am grateful to….  for providing this Children’s Book Tour and Giveaway! Book Description for Let’s Hug: 15 Hugs for Beginners: There must be over a millions ways to say “I love you” or “I care about you”, but with a single hug, even without words, you can simply feel it. This book is for toddlers, and encourages children and adults alike to try out all possible types of hugs. It’s everyone’s gain. It took seconds for the sweet testers who accompanied the writing of this book to adopt these 15 ways of showing love, to give and receive it. And our testers are not alone. Recent studies reveal that Oxitocin, the most fun hormone available, also known as the Love Hormone, is released into our bodies when we hug. Hugs are proven to have a generally positive healing and relaxing effect, since they increase calm and happiness, reinforce our self esteem, and support our sense of connection to those who are close to us. If you’d like to validate these studies, go ahead and hug. This book was beautifully illustrated by Yuval Israeli, and it’s the second creative collaboration between Yuval Israeli and Efrat Shoham.

HAPPY 2017 EVERYONE! WE ARE SO ANXIOUS FOR BETTER YEAR!

Hi, ALL! 2017 IS GOING TO BE A MUCH BETTER YEAR! 2015 & 2016 has been extremely challenging years for my family and I, as I know it has been for many others. I am deeply humbled and apologize for the effect it has had on my blog efficiency and Giveaways.

I appreciate how so many have forgiven my lack of efficiency and my problems and still faithfully support me on my site. I cannot tell you how much your support on my blog site means to me. Although I am not always able to answer all of your comments, I do enjoy reading them and will answer as often as I can. You are all so great!

We hope our fourth year -starting in June- will offer more attractions still. THERE WILL ALSO BE MANY MORE CHILDREN’S BOOK REVIEWS AND GIVEAWAYS! We are doing all we can to come…
