The Thankful Unicorn: Dream by Hayley Rose

The Thankful Unicorn: Dream by Hayley Rose is an adorable coloring book/gratitude journal for young people. Illustrated by Lynx Studios, this colorful, sparkly cover opens to a black and white interior featuring daily pages to be filled in focusing on what the writer is thankful for, their dreams and goals, what they love about themselves, and their daily affirmations. Inspiring quotes are found at the bottom of those pages. Each opposite page has a stunning drawing waiting to be colored.

Part of Rose’s Thankful series, this book inspires creativity and positive thinking. This is the second journal of this nature that I have reviewed. Already a fan of Rose’s books, I’m thrilled to see how she continues to engage young readers in such a meaningful and fun way.

On the 4RV Blog

 

Last Wednesday was my date to post at the 4RV Blog. My article talked about virtual book tours–something I am really good at since I did it for over seven years. You’ll find 5 Tips for Coordinating a Virtual Book Tour here.

Today the blog features an interview with author Karen Cioffi. An award-winning author and children’s ghostwriter, she has published several books with 4RV Publishing, including the award-winning tween book Walking through Walls. You can read the interview with Karen here.

Blogging at 4RV Blog about Effective Book Promotion

 

As many of you know, before I became a REALTOR, I worked in online book promotion. Thanks to this experience and the effort put into marketing my own work, our local library asked me to hold a workshop for self-published authors on ways to promote their books. This week’s article at the 4RV Reading, Writing, & Art News blog talks about how effective marketing is about building relationships. You can read my article at https://4rvreading-writingnewsletter.blogspot.com/2019/09/effective-book-promotion-is-about.html

IXEOS by Jennings Wright (Blog Tour and Giveaway)

Tour Schedule

Ixeos

The McClellands are enjoying a lazy summer vacation at the beach when they are lured from our world into Ixeos, an alternate Earth. Finding themselves lost in a maze of tunnels under Paris and surrounded by strangers, they discover that they have been brought to Ixeos for one purpose:  to take the planet back from humanoid aliens who have claimed it. With the aid of the tunnels and a mysterious man named Landon, the teens travel the world seeking the key that will allow them to free Darian, the long-imprisoned rebel leader. But the aliens aren’t the only problem on Ixeos — the McClellands have to deal with brutal gangs, desperate junkies, and a world without power, where all the technology is owned by the aliens, and where most of the population has been killed or enslaved. The worst part? There’s no way home.

 

Author Jennings Wright
Born and raised in Florida, Jennings spent her early years reading anything she could get her hands on, when she wasn’t spending time in and on the water. She won a prize in the 6th grade for her science fiction stories.

Jennings attended the University of Tampa, graduating with a B.A. in Political Science, and almost enough credits for B.A.s in both English and History. She attended graduate school at the University of West Florida, studying Psychology. She spent time over the years doing various kinds of business writing, editing, and teaching writing, but mostly having and raising her family, homeschooling her children, owning and running a business with her husband, and starting a non-profit.

Thanks to a crazy idea called NaNoWriMo Jennings got back into creative writing in 2011 and hasn’t stopped since. She currently lives in North Carolina with her husband, also a business owner and writer, and two children, and travels extensively with her family, and her non-profit in Uganda.

Read an excerpt:

A male voice called out, “Whatcho want, mate?”

“To pass,” Riley replied. “That’s all.”

“Oh aye, that’s all. And why should we let you pass, leastwise without a dekko at whatcho got in them bags?”

“We’re minding our business. You mind yours,” Riley said, taking his large flashlight from the drink pouch of his back pack. Abacus did the same.

“This here track be our business.”

Monkey slipped back beside the girls and began to nudge them to right. Clay stayed in front of them, masking their movement in the dark. As the two assailants lunged forward, Riley and Abacus swung their heavy flashlights like clubs. Clay picked up a rock. Monkey took Neahle and Sarah by the hand, swung around away from the fracas, and then swerved back to the tracks, running as fast as they could go for the station.
