I have some super books again today, my friends! Notice that I have included two children's books. These two are wonderful books. Your children will love them. Agy Wilson does a super job with both story and art, and L. Hollar is her usual majestic self.

Enjoy the lovely English horror tale by my friend, Thomas Brown. I'm a sucker for English authors. B.E. Skully adds Gothic horror to the mix. B. E. needs the love. I saw a picture of her riding a wooden horse. Geesh. There is no way to describe K.S. Brooks' tale other than to say it is a great read with some super plot twists in a most charming tale of love and the dangers lurking within.

I bought Wanda Parla's great book a while back when all the proceeds went to a great cause. I have listed the paperback here because that is what I bought, I wanted a signed copy, of course, and I am suggesting it here because of the sheer majesty of the book and its cover. It is also available in ebook.

So, I have six great suggestions today for everyone. Be sure and see the other books these talented authors have written. You are in for a treat!

The unthinkable is happening in Lynnwood – a village with centuries of guilt on its conscience.
Who wouldn’t want to live in an idyllic village in the English countryside like Lynnwood? With its charming pub, old dairy, friendly vicar, gurgling brooks, and its old paths with memories of simpler times.
But behind the conventional appearance of Lynnwood’s villagers, only two sorts of people crawl out of the woodwork: those who hunt and those who are prey. Visitors are watched by an entity between the trees where the Dark Ages have endured to the twenty-first century. Families who have lived behind stone walls and twitching curtains know that the gusts of wind blowing through the nearby alluring Forest bring with them a stench of delightful hunger only Lynnwood can appease.

Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I wrote the first draft of Someday Always Comes ten years ago. After writing it, I let it fall into my very own slush pile. I'd pull it out every couple years, dust it off and work on this scene or that, brush up grammar, etc. Then put it away again with a deep sigh, hoping that someday I'd be able to give it to the public but life got too busy for me to dedicate the time. But over the years, the people in the book nagged at me. During the decade, they became real to me and I finally realized I had to let them live. It was their destinies. I fell in love with its characters - Tessa, Brianna, Sweet, Kyle, Jaime and J.K. are my children. I found myself wanting to save them all at every turn. I knew that someday would come, and indeed it has.

From the Back Cover

In a comprehensive narrative of courage, passion and forever friendship, sixteen year-old Tessa Price, an orphan with a broken heart, little trust and eyes on the future has one really big wish. That someday she could get out of the lives of her Aunt Kiki and Kiki's abusive husband, Dino, or just die. The difficult-to-impress Tessa spends her days theoretically saving everyone. She is a heroine of an unlikely kind who denies her pain and regret by getting wrapped up in the troubles of others to forget her own. With rock-star sized aspirations, Tessa seizes one moment in time and rolls the dice, taking her teenage friends on a life-changing journey, crashing and burning into someday. That road is wrought with grief and catastrophe and Tessa struggles to keep things together, while denying herself true love and ignoring her limitations until it's too late. As she watches her friends spiral to rock bottom, Tessa blames herself for their fall from grace. When the death of a loved one sends her reeling into substance abuse, Tessa, everyone's champ, falls to her knees and becomes everything she hates. Even the life growing inside her seems unable to deter her from a path of self destruction. Can Tessa rise, once again, from the ashes? Moreover, will her champion wait for her with a genuine love forever?
