Pagan Portals: Pan and Merlin



Title: Pagan Portals - Pan: Dark Lord of the Forest and Horned God of the Witches

Author: Melusine Draco

Genre: Religion & Spirituality






Rating: 5 out of 5 fairies






Where to buy: Amazon

Synopsis: Those who have grown up with Pan as a playmate remember how, back in the day, it would be possible for a young child to disappear into the woods with only a dog for company for hours on end without there being a hue and cry raised in its absence; and it was on those woodland rides and pathways - summer or winter - that Melusine Draco often encountered Pan."

In Pursuit


NEW RELEASE....

The hunt is on…but who’s the one being pursued? 

A serial killer is terrorizing San Antonio, and the method of murder is beyond macabre. As Ivy Nash is pulled into the case by her police detective friend, Stan, there appears to be one intersecting point between the victims—Ivy herself.

Meanwhile, Ivy and her new organization, ECHO, take on a case for a run-away teen whose parents have disappeared. Was it self-imposed, or is something more nefarious going on?

Moving at a break-neck pace, the parallel trails to stop the killer and to find the missing parents seem both murky and crystal clear. But just as Ivy believes the end is near, past transgressions are slammed in her face—and nothing will be the same.

A man wants retribution. And he’ll even saw off his own leg if it means Ivy will suffer.

"Rife with deceit and deception and characters that leap off the page, this story is told with confidence through a sure hand, engaging both the mind and the heart. A compelling treat." -- Steve Berry, New York Times Bestselling Author

"I love the way that Mefford writes, seamlessly jumping between characters and time frames with no confusion, and he is extremely descriptive of the setting . You almost feel like you are watching a movie instead of reading a book!" -- Hilary Mahoney, Elusive Red Tiger

"Mefford wrote her character with depth and you can feel her passion for her job throughout the entire book." -- Shelly Maynard, Lynchburg Mama

Rating: 5 out of 5 fairies







Review: First, let me say I'm a HUGE fan of Ivy Nash at this point. She's an advocate for those who have no voice and often slip through the cracks in the system. This newest installment in her thriller series of adventures was no disappointment. With heart racing moments, a mystery villain, and heart-wrenching stories, In Pursuit will have you lost for hours as Ivy Nash fights for what's right...and her life.

Q&A with author John W. Mefford: 
Q: What do the Ivy Nash Thrillers have to do with the Redemption Thriller Series?

JWM: The Ivy Nash Thrillers comprise the second sub-series in the Redemption Thriller Series. The Alex Troutt Thrillers are the first sub-series. While I'll eventually write a series that connects the major characters and plots from all the sub-series, you don't have to read the AT books prior to the IN books. But I have to say, the AT thrillers are darn good.

Q: So you're saying you don't have to read the Alex Troutt Thrillers before the Ivy Nash Thrillers?

JWM: Nope. While a few of the characters might occasionally overlap between the series, they can be read as stand-alone. And then I'll wrap everything up in a final set of six novels that connects all of the main characters and stories from each sub-series. If you haven't read any of the Alex Troutt thrillers yet, you can try out the first three at a pretty nice discount. Just search for Alex Troutt Box Set.

Q: Can you give some insight into how Ivy Nash might connect to Alex Troutt down the line?

JWM: Sure…and then I'll send over a hit squad. Seriously, I'll be sprinkling in a few clues along the way for those who pay close attention to the details, but it will all come together in that final six novels of the Redemption Thriller Series. And it will be explosive and gut-wrenching at the same time.

Q: How many different sub-series are you planning to have in the Redemption Thriller Series?

JWM: Right now, I see four sub-series in the Redemption Thriller Series, with six novels in each. It's the most challenging and fulfilling creative endeavor I've undertaken. I hope you enjoy the journey.

About the Author
A veteran of the corporate wars, former journalist, and true studier of human and social behavior, best-selling author John W. Mefford has been writing novels since he first entered the work force twenty-five years ago, although he never put words on paper until late 2009.

John writes novels full of intrigue, suspense, and thrills, but they also evoke an emotional connection with the characters.

When he’s not writing, he chases three kids around, slaves away in the yard, reads, takes in as many sports as time allows, watches all sorts of movies, and continues to make mental notes of people and societies across the land.

John lives in Frisco, Texas with his beautiful wife, three opinionated kids, and a feisty fat cat who rules the world.

Transforming ADHD



Title: Transforming ADHD: Simple, Effective Attention and Action Regulation Skills to Help You Focus and Succeed

Author: Greg Crosby, Tonya K. Lippert

Genre: Self-Help, Health, Mind & Body








Rating: 5 out of 5 fairies







Where to buy: Amazon

Synopsis: Are you ready to look at adult ADHD in a completely different way? Transforming ADHD offers a radical, breakthrough approach based in attention regulation and interpersonal neurobiology (IPNB) to help you gain focus and freedom from your symptoms.
Adult attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) can make even simple everyday tasks—like paying bills or getting groceries—extremely difficult. At the end of the day, you may feel unfocused, and life may seem unmanageable. However, this struggle isn’t the result of an inability to pay attention, as is so widely believed. Studies now show that ADHD results from an inability to maintain attentiveness.

I Like, I Don't Like





Title: I Like, I Don't Like

Author: Anna Baccelliere

Illustrators: Ale + Ale

Genre: Children's Non-Fiction





Rating: 5 out of 5 fairies






Where to buy: Amazon

Synopsis: An eye-opening introduction to an important issue
The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child states that every child in the world has the right to play. Unfortunately, that universal right is not always respected. I Like, I Don't Like presents this reality to readers by showing how children in varying circumstances can see the same object very differently.
With stark illustrations that perfectly capture the tone of the book, I Like, I Don't Like will inspire meaningful discussions about privilege and poverty.

About the Author: Anna Baccelliere published her first children's book in 2004. Since then, she has written numerous books for children and young adults and won several literary awards. She currently lives in Italy, where she teaches lower secondary school and conducts creative writing workshops for adults and children.

About the Illustrators: Ale + Ale is the creative team of Italian artists Alessandro Lecis and Alessandra Panzeri, who have been working together since 2000. Although they fantasize about creating collages in a space-ship orbiting earth, they can actually be found at their studio in Paris. To see samples of their artwork, visit www.ale-ale.net.

Review: A very simple, but powerful book. Short, easy to read sentences, paired with images that show the stark contrast of life between children who live in poverty and those without that fear. At the end is information on poverty, child rights, and what you can do to help. A definite way to broaden horizons and start the conversation with anyone - regardless of age.
