Featured Book -  Emmy  Budd:  The Real Dog is Harry by Jean Blasiar

dogharry.jpgA human hand is unearthed on the property of Hank Turner, a local farmer, in Jerseyville, Ohio where Emmy Budd and her adventurous friend, T.J. Blake, live.

Hank Turner, a good friend of Emmy and T.J.'s, is under suspicion for murder and mutilation of a hired man whom he threatened and fired several weeks earlier.

A developer and newcomer to town has purchased the Turner farm and plans to turn it into a roadside tavern. Emmy and T.J. keep their ear to the ground and their nose to the grindstone as they pretend to be helping out but actually picking up information about the proposed tavern. In her usual perceptive way, Emmy figures out how certain animal bones suddenly appeared in the excavation of the Turner farm after a torrential rain. Because of under handed activities, Emmy is nearly exposed for tampering with the United States Postal Service, a fact that if made public would cause great embarrassment to her and her family.

A scruffy stray dog, whom T.J. names Harry, tags along with the kids on their many trips to the gravesite. The dog appears at strange times and in strange places and is finally discovered to be the abused pet of the hated developer of the proposed tavern.

In the end, Harry returns to the boy who wants to be his real owner, T.J. Blake.

Featured Book - Poor Rich by Jean Blasiar

rich.jpg“Poor Rich” is the story of 14 year old Rich Cameron, an asthmatic, extremely allergic, brilliant nerd with a gay father and a homophobic step father who has only remained sane and functional because of therapy with a caring psychiatrist and the companionship of an irreverent parrot named U2. That is, until the day his allergies disappear. “Poor Rich” explores the moment in every adolescent’s life when the preconceptions developed in childhood give way to the messier and harsher realities of adulthood. Told with compassion, biting wit, and containing a playful twist that takes the reader inside the mind of this unique, precocious youth, “Poor Rich” is one from the heart.

Featured Book - Pink Noise:  A  Posthuman Tale by Leonid Korogodski

pink.jpgOne of the best brain doctors of his time, Nathi lost his own brain five centuries ago when he became a posthuman.

He is called upon to save a comatose girl. The damage is extensive, so he decides to map his own mind into her brain in order to replace the badly damaged part.

But something unexpected waits for him within the Girl's brain. She is a carrier of a Wish Fairy, an enigmatic sentient cyber being whose only purpose is to kill the Wish, a virus used by the ruling cyber Wizard Orders to enslave all posthuman minds--including Nathi's.

Liberated, Nathi forms a symbiotic union--the Dancer--with the Girl, discovers the true cause of her brain injury, and finds a way to break out of the Castle, their high-tech prison, and into the Martian polar night.

But once outside, the real chase begins.

They must resist the cyber wizards who are trying to remotely regain control of their minds while also sending a force in pursuit. This battle must be fought both in the physical world and that of the mind.

Featured Book - The Keys to Joy-Filled Living by Robert C. Jameson

keys.jpgFor a lot of us, especially during these challenging economic times, life is tough. An overwhelming majority of people are dissatisfied with their lives, whether its problems with career, family, relationships, or general depression, and few of us believe we’re living the life we’ve always wanted. Worse, we tend to feel we’re stuck with what we’ve got.

I have great news. You can enjoy your life, no matter what your current situation! Read my inspirational book for the real keys to happiness and joy, including:

• How to overcome fear, and make anger and hurt feelings work for you, instead of against you.

• Why your relationship with your coworkers is the primary reason you hate your job, and how to change those relationships for the better.

• What to do when your love life becomes stale and repetitive.

• Small, simple changes you can make now, in less than a minute that will ripple through your life and create big, lasting, positive effects.

While many of today’s popular self-help books are a good read, “The Keys to Joy-Filled Living” takes things to a different level. Instead of just telling the reader how they should be “feeling,” I guide and show how to actually “get there.” I have an uncanny way of opening a reader’s heart and mind to honestly see what is going on in their lives. One reader calls my book her “road map to success and recovery.” She states, “His kind, gentle, loving, and non-judgmental approach – along with his wonderful exercises and techniques – really work when it comes to healing one’s self and living a joy-filled life.”

I am a marriage and family therapist who has been in practice for 23 years, and I have helped thousands rediscover joy in their lives. I am an author of several books, including “Don’t Lose Weight – Give It Away” which explores the emotional aspects of weight loss and “Thoughts of Pomeroy”, containing pictures and thoughts to help guide relationships. My latest release is “The Keys to Joy-Filled Living”.

Featured Book - Sunrise to Sunset by Laurie Bowler

sunrise.jpgNessy awakes from her unconscious state, with no memory of who she is or her purpose in life. Charles struggles as he tries to provide her with as much information as he can about herself. Saddened and concerned, he eventually tells her about her former life, and true immortal state. Dismayed, a still unconvinced Hera takes Nessy back to the past in the form of the Gulon. There she meets other Gulons who had come to their aid, along with the covens that were gathered, hoping to glimpse their new queen and ruler of the underworld, little does Nessy realise that person is her!

The continued threat and battles from the detested and sinister Tellis coven waged on, as they joined forces with a vicious and blood thirsty coven known for their violent massacres and barbaric ways of feeding, in a desperate attempt to retain possession and control of their once dominance.

Nessy has to battle her adversaries in order to protect the human race from extinction. Moreover, she has to protect her title as Queen and ruler of not only vampiredom; but for the good of the immortal race and the mortals. With Charles, Hera and the Gulons, they must succeed despite Nessy’s loss of memory.




We, at and, would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year.  Thank you to the readers for supporting our sites.  Thank you to the authors for your            participation.  Thank you to the reviewers who help to make this all possible.
