About the Author: Joyann Dwire knew she wanted to be a writer when she was 12 years old. That desire, along with the desire to follow God’s will for her life, have been the driving forces in her life.

Joyann was raised on a small farm in Somerset County, Pennsylvania. Her background can be seen in much of her writing. Life in a rural county with great historical depth grew into an interest in history and publication of profile and local history articles in Pennsylvania Magazine, Grit and Quilters’ World (online).

Much to her surprise, Joyann’s first published story,’The Sighting,’ appeared in Highlights for Children. Up to that time she hadn’t considered writing for children. Since then, she has published stories and articles in Power Station, Discovery Trails and The Young Salvationist.

Her love of animals shows up in most of her stories and is obvious in her first children’s book, What Kind of Cow Are You? http://www.joyanndwire.com/home

Author/Book Spotlight: The Forget Me Not Summer by Leila Howland


 

22934470

 

The Forget Me Not Summer by Leila Howland,  Ji-Hyuk Kim (Illustrator)

About the Book: This charming story about the summer three California sisters spend on Cape Cod is perfect for fans of The Penderwicks and The Mother-Daughter Book Club. Full of moments both humorous and reflective, The Forget-Me-Not Summer is a story about three girls facing their fears, adjusting to change, and learning how to band together as the strongest version of themselves: sisters.

Though Marigold, Zinnia, and Lily Silver couldn’t be more different, they’re all excited about their various plans for summer vacation. Twelve-year-old Marigold is hoping to get her first kiss from her big crush, while Zinnia, eleven, will most likely spend her time in Marigold’s shadow. And little five-year-old Lily, though angelic, has a knack for stirring up mischief wherever she goes.

But any expectation of summer fun comes crashing down when the sisters’ parents send them to Cape Cod to visit their aunt Sunny. Small-town life is not what these L.A. girls had in mind. They must adjust, however, to things like sharing a room and living without a TV. With the help of Aunt Sunny’s zany disposition and yummy brownies, though, the girls are quickly won over, and before Marigold, Zinnie, and Lily know it, they’re cracking lobster shells at clambakes, making new friends, and even organizing a local talent show.

 

Jacket Copy: Sisters Marigold, Zinnia, and Lily Silver can’t wait for summer even though it’s warm all year in L.A. Twelve-year-old Marigold, an aspiring actress, has boys on the brain and is hoping to become more than friends with her crush. Zinnia, eleven, having failed at trying to tame her unruly curls, has plenty of time on her hands during summer vacation and will most likely spend it in Marigold’s shadow. Five-year-old Lily, whom everyone adores, is content to play with her beloved nanny all day. But when their parents announce they’re sending these California girls to their aunt Sunny’s house on Cape Cod for several weeks, it’s a complete disaster.
They’re forced to adjust to a much simpler way of life—no TV, no Wi-Fi, and, worst of all, sharing a room. Could their summer get any more awful? While at first reluctant, Marigold, Zinnia, and Lily are charmed by their warmhearted and quirky aunt Sunny, whose cheery attitude is contagious. Resolving to make the most of their situation, the sisters decide to spice up this quiet town by organizing a local talent show. As they start to make friends—like Peter, the Red Sox–loving sailor boy with an eye for Marigold—and see the magic of the Cape, the summer becomes one of firsts, fun, and plenty of sun . . . all while they learn how to band together as the strongest version of themselves they can be: sisters.

Book Review/Giveaway: If You Were Me And Lived In CHINA. End July 17th


25790900

If You Were Me And Lived In CHINA. A child’s introduction to Culture around the World. By Carole P. Roman

About the Book: I have always wanted to visit China and thanks to Ms. Roman’s book she had made it more exciting and interesting to know what to look for and see

China which is officially known as the People’s Republic of China which has a population of more the 135 billion people living there which is the most populated country in the world.

You might of learned about the Yangtze River which is in the South, or the Yellow River which is located in the North. Although the capital is Beijing many people called it Peking, China has major highways, trains and expressways and the second busiest airport in the world.

Children’s names are picked because they have meanings so boys who are called An which means peace or Bao which is another word for treasure and Fu for happiness. Girls are called Hong because they like the color red, Yu which stands for Jade which is a gemstone or Zi which is the word for smart. What would you like to be called if you lived in China? I think I would like to be called Zi.

China has some amazing places to visit like the Great Wall of China. It is a stone barricaded which was built thousands of years ago to keep strangers out of China. Nobody is sure but they believe it is about 5,500 hundred miles. Another very famous tourist site is the giant clay army that was only recently discovered that had been buried underground for more then two thousand years. You will be told that there are over eight thousand individually sculpted soldiers and about 520 statues of horses and 130 of just chariots. You will love explore the many tourist sites as you will have an opportunity to learn so much.

The New year is a very fun holiday to be part of and begins at midnight with fireworks which hope that the noise will chase off the evil spirits. It is a very important day to honor your grandparents. You would receive red envelops filled with good luck money. Because the celebration last fifteen days you will get to enjoy many delicious meals but better learn how to use the chopsticks because if you drop them it could bring you bad luck. They are very superstitious people.

Pages: 30

Cost: $9.99

My Review: This book gives readers an inside into the culture of China, a place you never taught about visiting but now can. Imagine standing on the Great Wall of China taking a long walk or visiting the famous tourist site, the giant terracotta or clay army that was recently discovered that had been buried underground for more then two thousand years. Visit the Forbidden city were their emperors lived with over 4,000 rooms and hidden cambers. Learn about their currency, food and their favorite spot table tennis or ping pong. Join them as they celebrate the New Year with fireworks and making as much noise to chase off evil spirits. What a great way to end the story. With only 30 pages the author did her best to give readers a lot of information including 3 pages of  pronunciation guide.

FTC Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion in any way.

Book/Author Spotlight. Giveaway: Professor McNitt and the Journey to Gambit. Ends July 17th


22008673

 

Professor McNitt and the Journey to Gambit: Book One by Alison Kentta (Author)

About the Book: Twelve-year-old Corabelle Quinn is positive she doesn’t have a single living relative, much less a quirky great uncle named Professor McNitt. But after ten months of sharing a bedroom with a biting toddler and a money-obsessed boy genius named Aiken, she gladly moves in with him anyway.

As it turns out, Professor McNitt is not only an inventor of bizarre and marvelous things, but the only person who knows two very important secrets: the real story of Cora’s family, and the hidden passage to Gambit Island. But just when he begins to reveal how these two things are closely intertwined—he suddenly vanishes.

If Cora wants to save her uncle, she will have to forge through the unexplored, unpredictable land of Gambit. Her only aids? A little black book of codes and symbols, and smug, know-it-all Aiken.

In Gambit, Cora and Aiken certainly do not expect to find a technologically advanced city of sprykes (fairies who are not allowed to use their wings), a coalition of civilized animals, a tribe of mermaid descendants in a golden city, or a clan of lost Vikings. But at least they are friendly.

Have you ever been chased by hornet-riding cavemen? By the half-dead in a cavernous labyrinth? By shark-human hybrids? Consider yourself lucky. But even they aren’t as terrifying as the person holding Professor McNitt hostage.

As Cora and Aiken race across Gambit Island, they slowly piece together the mysteries of its origin—and how closely they are each tied to it. http://alisonkentta.com/

Biographies are boring. Instead I will tell you why I like to write middle grade fiction.

Fourth grade was the year that things became unfun. We stopped doing dioramas of Roald Dahl books or dressing up like pilgrims. Egg drop? Forget it. Now we read serious books, like Where the Red Fern Grows, and Johnny Tremain. I liked these books, but there was something scary about them: something real, something grown up. The fun, the adventure, the possibility…it was gone. Just like that. Poof.

There was no Harry Potter at the time, and I was getting too old for Ramona Quimby. Gone were the days of reading for enjoyment, for fun, for escape, for adventure. Reading was now for the exclusive purpose of educational, historical, and emotional development. And if I were lucky, it would be slightly less boring than a dental exam.

I’m not saying that things don’t have to be unfun. They do. There are things that need to be learned, disciplines that must be practiced, worldviews that need to be understood, and work that needs to be completed. And once you get the hang of it, learning can be fun. After all, I enjoy using history, science, culture, and geographical tidbits in my books. It’s neat. Because eventually, I found my own magic when studying all of those things.

But frankly, as a kid, I would have liked an easier transition. I could have benefitted from the knowledge that magic and fantasy don’t completely vanish immediately at the age of nine.

I remember all of this, and I remember how I felt. And that is why I enjoy writing middle grade fiction. After all, most of us need a bit of adventure at any age.

Is It Time to Say Goodbye?


Is it time to say goodbye?

I have asked myself that question for the last year and a half. Why? Because I have notice the number of viewers/followers has decreased. The number of people taking part in the giveaways has dropped that I don’t think it’s fair to the authors/publishers to find out only a few comments about their books.

So I have decided to get rid of the giveaway program. I know that a few dedicated followers leave their comments on books whether there’s a giveaway or not and I will like to say a big thank you and that I’m very grateful.

Since I’m still behind in reviewing a few books, the giveaway program will last until the end of July 2016. It will be up to the authors/publishers if they want their books to be given away. Only then will I do a giveaway.

For the love that I have for books, I will still keep the blog running to only spotlight the author/book. If any author/publisher still interested please click on the link for more information. https://mymcbooks.wordpress.com/request-book-spotlight/

I would like to say a big thank you to all my followers for their support and lovely comments about their love for books. Thank you for being a part of this blog. I will, once in a while surprise you with a free book. So watch out for my email.

Even without the free giveaway, please help support the authors by leaving a comment about their book when posted.

Thank you

Book Review/Giveaway: Battle of the Grandmas. Ends June 25th


16290191

Battle of the Grandmas by Anthonette Klinkerman, illustrated by Justin Acquavella

 

About the Book: One little girl, three grandmas! Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? Well, three times the presents from Grandma, Granny, and NaNa (the real ones pictured at left) isn’t as wonderful as most grandkids would think in this humorous tale. Based on a true story, find out what happens when gift-giving becomes a battle!
My Review: When a little girl received three packages from her grandmas, it turns out they all sent her the same book. But they each wanted their gifts to be different and the best. So each grandma set out to out do each other by sending their grand daughter the best gifts they can find. Soon packages from each of them started to pile up in the girl’s house, from toys, music boxes, flowers to goodies and more. Even the postman was getting exhausted.

Finally, the little girl have had it, all she wanted was for her grandmas to spend time with her. Take her to the park, spend time with her reading a book or doing silly things to make her laugh and smile. All she wanted was hugs and kisses from those she loves.

I wish kids would think like this little girl. But society has changed all that because a lot of grandmas are guilty of trying to buy the love of their grandchild with gifts, and trying to out do the other grandma. I found this book very educational and that every grandma’s household should have a copy. The illustrations by Justin Acquavella an aspiring independent artist, graphic designer and illustrator help tell and bring the story to life. Pick up a copy today from Amazon.com

 

FTC Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion in any way

 

About the Author: Anthonette Klinkerman is a public school English teacher and public speaker. She teaches English at a night high-school for at-risk teens, and conducts her award-winning mobile etiquette school, Courtesy Bootcamp, for businesses during the days. Battle of the Grandmas was written first, but actually is her second published book. Her first book is titled Courtesy Bootcamp: a not-so-gentle reminder to live by The Golden Rule. Married in 1999, Klinkerman was born in San Diego, California, and moved to Colorado in 2000. Her husband, also a teacher, was raised in Littleton, CO. Their one daughter is working on her art skills daily in preparation for mommy’s next book.

Book Review/Giveaway: I Hate to Read! Ends June 16th


I Hate Books

I Hate to Read by Rita Marshall and Etienne Delessert

About the Book: Victor Dickens hates to read, and nothing can change his mind. Or can it? How about a parrot with a peg leg? Or a rabbit with black barn boots? Or a field mouse with gold coins? Anything can happen on the whimsical, wonderful night when a little boy with a stubborn hatred of books discovers that printed words can take on lives of their own. Reissued here with a text crafted for even younger readers, I Hate to Read! won the 1993 Benjamin Franklin Award upon its original publication. http://gonereading.com/product/i-hate-to-read-by-rita-marshall/

 

Pages: 32

Ages: 5 and up

 

 

My Review: Have you tried to get your child to read and they just want to do other things like play video games? Well, meet Victor Dickens a stubborn boy who wear his helmet when skateboarding, combs his hair for the class picture, like to share with his dog, Page. He is good in math and science but fails in ABCs. Victor just hates reading.

So why he was pretending to read while watching Television, some characters started to crawl out of the book. First it was a crocodile in a white coat asking him to jump into his pocket. It’s time to read said the crocodile, it’s story time. But Victor told him that he hate to read. And that’s how his adventure started with each character from the book giving Victor an invitations to encourage him to read. With each adventures, Victor started to find reading interesting as he read each page, he just hated the story to come to an end. This will be a great addition to the school and home library.
