Book Description:

You build relationships to betray relationships.
That is the motto for the FBI’s undercover program, and special agent Lexie Montgomery is just beginning to understand what that means. Lexie’s first assignment is infiltrating a radical cell of the Animal Liberation Front. Underground and operating in splinter groups throughout Los Angeles, the only way in is through Savannah Riley, a new recruit.
Savannah left the safety of her small southern town for the bright lights of the city. Pulled into the animal rights movement by her college roommate and a gorgeous anarchist, she sinks deeper and deeper into the dark, paranoid world of ALF extremists.
As the actions of her cell escalate beyond simple demonstrations and graffiti, Savannah turns to Lexie to keep her grounded. But as the two women grow closer and the FBI’s case builds, Lexie is forced to decide what betrayal really means.

The Second book is by Author Jeff Jenke. This is surely going to become a Family Christmastime Favorite. Youth will enjoy it all year through! This Giveaway is made possible by ACME Book Publicity & Tours.

Why do we spend so much time and effort creating a fairytale world for our children, just to take it away from them? Author Jeff Janke faced that dilemma three years ago when his daughter started questioning her belief in Santa Claus. Like most parents, he had two problems to solve–how to gently teach his child the true meaning of Christmas, and how to prevent her from spoiling the fairytale for other children. Out of this problem, Secret Santa Claus Club was born.

Book Description:

Secret Santa Claus Club is a beautifully illustrated story about a little girl thinking back on the magic of each Christmas. She remembers meeting Santa at the mall and seeing her first bike under the tree on Christmas morning. As time goes on, she starts to wonder if it’s all real. When she decides she’s ready to know the truth–her parents help guide her to the true meaning of the holiday.

Secret Santa Claus Club was written to be a tool for parents during these challenging moments. Combined with love, patience, and compassion, SSCC will help transition the reader from believing to becoming. At the end of the story, your child will be invited to join Secret Santa Claus Club. They’ll understand the importance of keeping the secret, creating the magic for believers, and helping other members of the club.

Meet the Author:

I kind of fell into this world of children’s books. I don’t consider myself an author, I’m simply a dad, and just like all parents, I’m eager to be the absolute best. I want to provide the happiest childhood possible, filled with magic and wonder, but I’m faced with decisions that challenge me constantly.

A few years ago, River’s mom called me in a slight panic. River was hearing from other kids that Santa wasn’t real. This presented an instant problem–one I had feared for years. Luckily, River still wanted to believe, so that bought us 12 months to come up with a solution. Out of necessity, I wrote a special book for River. And thanks to encouragement from other parents, I’ve started the author journey and am fumbling my way through publishing Secret Santa Claus Club myself.

Being a single father, I look for every opportunity to spend with my little girl. Together we enjoy playing all sorts of sports and making healthy, homemade treats in the kitchen. A few years ago River started playing in a roller hockey league, and I get to be one of her coaches!

I try to continually follow my dreams and passions—and there’s a lot of them. By day I’m a manager at a mortgage company, at night I’m spending as much time as I can with River, and on the weekends I’m traveling all over the western states as a wedding photographer. In my free time (if there is any) I enjoy playing drums, tossing a football, riding jet skis and writing scripts for fun–I even made a movie!

I’m constantly working on self-improvement, staying healthy and being positive. I do my best to be a strong and consistent role model for other people, especially my River!
