Peet is a big footed creature who is always on the run. He’s constantly hiding because he’s scared of what the other animals may think of him and his big feet. He can barely sleep at night because his struggle with insecurities never rests.

One night he was so tired from running that he managed to fall asleep. The next morning Peet wakes up and spots an unusual sight. He sees Squirrel and other animals heading west together. Peet decides to hide and wait for the animals to head over the hill where they could not see him.

Though when Peet feels secure with the animals gone, he spots a forest fire heading his way from the horizon. With no hesitation, Peet quickly runs towards the water to save himself. But when he has a moment to reflect, he realizes that he’s done something awful. He’s left all the animals behind who know nothing about the forest fire heading their way. Peet had to make a choice: Stay put and be safe? Or, head back and save the others?

Peet takes a deep breath and makes the right call. With the power of his large feet, he makes it back to the group of animals before the fire is able to. He tells the animals that a forest fire is heading their way and there no time to waste. The animals panic, but Squirrel comes up with a great idea. He suggests that Peet use his big feet to smash a large rock blocking their only exit. Peet steps up and gives the rock a great kick and breaks it with one swift hit.

Peet heroically leads the group of animals straight to safety over the water. Seeing rain clouds heading directly over the forest fire makes the group feel a sense of relief.

Squirrel reassures Peet that he shouldn’t be ashamed of his feet and it’s ok to be different. All the animals in the forest are unique too. Peet never has to hide again because from now on they are all friends.

THE IRON FLOWER by Laurie Forest Official Nerd Blast


Elloren Gardner and her friends were only seeking to right a few wrongs, but their actions have propelled them straight into the ranks of the realm-wide Resistance against Gardnerian encroachment. As the Resistance struggles against the harsh rulings of High Priest Marcus Vogel and the Mage Council, Elloren begins to realize that none of the people she cares about will be safe if Gardneria seizes control of the Western Realm.

With tensions heating up in Verpacia, more and more Gardnerian soldiers continue to descend upon the university…led by none other than Lukas Grey, now commander of the newly rebuilt Fourth Division base. Though Elloren tries to keep him at arm’s length, Lukas is determined to wandfast to her, convinced that she has inherited her grandmother’s magic—the prophesied power of the Black Witch. As his very nearness seems to awaken a darkness inside her, Elloren finds it more and more difficult to believe that she’s truly powerless, as her uncle always claimed.

Caught between her growing feelings for the rebellious Yvan Guriel and the seductive power offered by Lukas Grey, Elloren must find a way to stay true to what she knows is right and protect everyone she loves…even if that means protecting them from herself.

TWO DARK REIGNS by Kendare Blake Official Blog Tour


#1 New York Times bestselling author Kendare Blake returns with the highly anticipated third book in the Three Dark Crowns series!

Katharine sits on the throne, Mirabella and Arsinoe are in hiding, and an unexpected renegade is about to wage a war of her own. The crown has been won, but these queens are far from done.


“Tragic, devastating, horrifying, enthralling.” ―Kirkus Reviews (starred review)


★ “Blake’s already pitch-dark tale shades even darker. Exquisitely restrained prose, deliberate pacing, paying off in a tumultuous climax that piles one shocking twist upon another. Achingly gorgeous and gruesomely fascinating.” ―Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“This sequel to Three Dark Crowns loses none of that book’s momentum, powering toward a conclusion that leaves several doors open. With wonderfully drawn characters and a lethal, unpredictable plot, this follow-up will leave readers breathless as the queens’ fates unfold.” ―ALA Booklist


“New exciting heights with a driving plot. Dark indeed, and exploring themes of loyalty, this is a thrilling sequel with everything from action to romance to entice readers. A strong purchase for YA fantasy shelves.” ―School Library Journal

“Three Dark Crowns is a brutal and inventive fantasy that is as addictive as it is horrifying. I can’t begin to guess the fates of these three remarkable sister-queens, but I’m salivating like poisoners at a feast to find out what will happen next.” ―Marissa Meyer, New York Times bestselling author of the Lunar Chronicles 

“Full of mystery, intrigue, and deadly girls I wouldn’t dare cross, Fennbirn is a darkly magical world I’m both drawn to and frightened by. In short, this is a book I could linger in for months, with three girls I am rooting for with all my heart.” ―Megan Shepherd, New York Times bestselling author of The Cage series 

★ “With exquisite world building and luminous detail, this is high fantasy at its best. The magic is fierce and the plot intensely twisted, but at this novel’s dark heart beats a story about sisterhood, the unbreakable bonds of family, and ties that bind enough to kill.” ―Booklist (starred review)

★ “The opener to a pitch-black epic fantasy series. Blake has constructed an insular, matriarchal society from convincing intimate details, vivid, complicated characters, [and] sumptuous, poetic prose. Gorgeous and bloody, tender and violent, precise, and passionate; above all, completely addicting. ” ―Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“I loved this book. Blake’s Three Dark Crowns is hypnotic, twisting, and satisfying as a drop of poison in an enemy’s cup.” ―April Genevieve Tucholke, author of Wink, Poppy, Midnight
“Readers will be riveted by Blake’s ingenious world-building, stunning developments of main and supporting characters, and spiraling tensions. Highly recommended for fans of fantasy action thrillers with strong female leads, such as Victoria Aveyard’s ‘Red Queen’ and Sarah J. Maas’s ‘Throne of Glass’ series.” ―School Library Journal

Tens List

I'm not an author, but I do a lot of typing at my work.  And as quirky as I am, I have this guilty pleasure of having certain words that I love to type.
(any word that ends with -ation is a favorite of mine)

What is your TEN favorite words you like to Type??

I’m afraid I don’t have a similar quirk for typing words, and if I did they’d all be swear words, so I’m going to modify this to be a short list of my favorite things about the writing process.

1.       The sound of the keyboard. I love to hear it hammering away. Sounds like progress.
2.      When my Sphynx cat, Armpit McGee, interrupts by sitting in front of my screen and meowing. That adorable face is a good excuse for a break.
3.      When that little color-changing progress bar in Scrivener starts to turn from red to yellow. Not too far to go before it starts to turn green!
4.      When I have an idea or a note that’s worth writing down but I’m mid-scene so I just jot it down in sideways handwriting on whatever paper I have nearby.
5.      When my weekly lunchtime cup of coffee turns an afternoon into a speedwriting session.


Kendare Blake is the author of several novels and short stories, most of which you can find information about via the links above. Her work is sort of dark, always violent, and features passages describing food from when she writes while hungry. She was born in July (for those of you doing book reports) in Seoul, South Korea, but doesn’t speak a lick of Korean, as she was packed off at a very early age to her adoptive parents in the United States. That might be just an excuse, though, as she is pretty bad at learning foreign languages. She enjoys the work of Milan Kundera, Caitlin R Kiernan, Bret Easton Ellis, Richard Linklater, and the late, great Michael Jackson, I mean, come on, he gave us Thriller.

She lives and writes in Kent, Washington, with her husband, their cat son Tyrion Cattister, red Doberman dog son Obi-Dog Kenobi, rottie mix dog daughter Agent Scully, and naked sphynx cat son Armpit McGee.

Released Today: Jaclyn and the Beanstalk by Mary Ting Review @maryting


Jaclyn and the Beanstalk
By Mary Ting


What fate awaits a girl who hears monsters at night…

Sixteen-year-old Jaclyn looks up to her father. An honest man who once fought for the king, he now teaches Jaclyn how to use her wits—and her sword. 

But he has a secret. And his secret may have a connection to the one thing Jaclyn is hiding from him. 

Upon hearing “monsters” are terrorizing the small villages around Black Mountain, Jaclyn’s father and his friends head out to hunt them … but they don’t return.

Armed only with her sword and three magic beans—a gift from a mysterious old woman—Jaclyn sets out for Black Mountain to save her father. 

On her climb, one bean drops and grows into a beanstalk, catching her when she falls.

She isn’t the only one that takes the ride. Jack, her childhood friend and secret crush, is following her. 

Jaclyn and Jack will have to work together to save not only their fathers, but the townspeople the beasts plan to lay waste to before it’s too late.

Expected publication: September 4th 2018 by Vesuvian Books

My Review

A fairytale retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk, Jaclyn and the Beanstalk puts a whole new twist that is full of mystery, fantasy, and biblical concept.

Jaclyn is a strong female lead in this story.  She is well trained by her father, while living in isolation from the rest of the village.  When word of monsters are starting to terrorize the small villages around the mountain, Jaclyn's father, along with very few men, decide to ride off into the night to try and stop the destruction. When they don't return, Jaclyn decides to take matters into her own hands and put her training to use. She can not abandon her father.

As darkness grows, so does Jaclyn's will. Her confidence grows beautifully as the story progresses, with twists and darkness. But with the darkness of despair, so shines the power of unconditional love and forgiveness.

Through the evil, Jaclyn finds comfort in her childhood friend, Jack.  I fell in love with their chemistry immediately. Their bond unites them to stay strong and powerful as a team....and their banter back and forth is a ray of bliss.

This story will entice your imagination with creative imagery and a dynamic plot. It will dominate your emotions.....from start to finish.

You can buy it HERE on Amazon!

From the best-selling authors of the definitive two-volume Star Trek oral history, The Fifty-Year Mission, comes the complete, uncensored, unauthorized oral history of Battlestar Galactica.

Four decades after its groundbreaking debut, Battlestar Galactica -- both the 1978 original and its 2004 reimagining ? have captured the hearts of two generations of fans. What began as a three-hour made for TV movie inspired by the blockbuster success of Star Wars followed by a single season of legendary episodes, was transformed into one of the most critically acclaimed and beloved series in television history. And gathered exclusively in this volume are the incredible untold stories of both shows - as well as the much-maligned Galactica 1980.

For the first time ever, you will learn the uncensored, unbelievable true story of forty years of Battlestar Galactica as told by the teams that created a television legend in the words of over hundred cast, creators, crew, critics and executives who were there and brought it all to life. So Say We All! 



“It’s been a while since I’ve had a woman throw me to the ground. Not quite as much fun as I remember.”
By Edward Gross
While conducting interviews with cast and crew from the re imagined Battlestar Galactica, I was the one who kept getting hit with a recurring question: Had I seen the Galactica episode of the Portlandia TV series? I replied that I hadn’t, and in fact had barely even been aware of the show’s existence, hardly a surprise  these days. 
          Time was that I would know pretty much  every new TV show out  there, what they  were about and when they would air. In fact, it was something I prided myself on— for years my wife (Eileen) and I would pick up two copies of TV Guide’s Fall Preview issue just so we could read about what was coming and check off what we would or  wouldn’t watch. Now, of course, the sheer quantity of tele vi sion is so overwhelming that I’m suddenly hearing about a show in its third season that I’ve never even heard of at all
          We’ll get back to Portlandia in a second. 
          During the writing process, there came a point where I felt like I needed a Galactica 2003 refresher, having not watched the show since its first run. I streamed the original miniseries, which made perfect “background noise” for the writing process, though I found myself paying attention to it more than I probably should have been. Next thing I knew, I was making my way through season one, with all the others streaming before me over the next couple of weeks. The writing of the book needed to continue, but Galactica wouldn’t. It was over.  They’d found Earth (and thank God not the Earth of Galactica 1980), and now I was the one feeling lost. Searching. My first impulse was to start watching the original series, but then I remembered Portlandia. Or, more accurately, what I’d been told about it. A bit of searching on Netflix, and there it was: season 2, episode 2— “One Moore Episode.” In it, characters played by the two lead actors, Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, decide to check out an episode of Battlestar Galactica, which leads to another and another and another . . .  to the point where they lose their jobs, electricity is turned off (briefly, but painfully), and they find themselves so obsessed that they decide to go this side of Kathy Bates in Misery on Ron Moore’s ass to get him to write another episode.  Won’t spoil things from there, but you should check it out for yourself if you haven’t.
          Needless to say, “One Moore Episode” was pretty reflective of what I felt rewatching the series, its power once again completely capturing my imagination, and, it being one of the few shows (particularly in the sci-fi genre) to live up to the true potential of the medium, standing as the model by which others are still measured all these years later.
          Personally, it’s an ironic feeling to have, considering that I wasn’t the biggest fan of Battlestar Galactica when the original series debuted, in 1978. I can still remember the excitement leading into the series—at that point I was a massive Star Trek fan and had been swept up by Star Wars along with everyone else— and I was pretty impressed with the three- hour event “Saga of a Star World.” Unfortunately, with the exception of several two- parters, that feeling didn’t last all that long. The series (at least for me) felt as though it quickly fell into a certain repetition, and drove home the notion that Battlestar Galactica was an incredible premise that failed to live up to its own potential. And when Galactica 1980 followed as a failed apology from ABC, that feeling remained with me. For decades.
          Which is part of the reason that rumblings over the years of a revival barely elicited a Spockian rise of an eyebrow. Oh, sure, talk of Bryan Singer doing a new version with Tom DeSanto was intriguing, but didn’t inspire a tremendous amount of hope in me. And neither did Richard Hatch’s attempt to get the show revived, which felt like it was  going to be more of the same (not entirely fair, since I  didn’t know much about it). But when word came out that Ronald D. Moore was writing a new version, then I was interested. And to be perfectly honest, it  wasn’t  because I was suddenly filled with hope of Battlestar Galactica being all that it could be (my bad), but more  because I was already friendly with him, having interviewed him numerous times regarding his work on Star Trek: The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine. He’d always made me feel welcome to contact him, and my initial impulse was that I could have an interesting exclusive on my hands.
So I contacted Ron, and we chatted about how it all came about and what he was hoping to achieve. We probably spoke for about forty- five minutes, and afterward I thanked him, both of us figuring we’d talk again at some point. What neither of us expected was that my tape recorder would malfunction and the interview was not recorded. Just to show you what kind of a  human being Ron Moore is, when I told him what had happened, he took a deep breath and we dove right back into it as though the first conversation  hadn’t occurred. End result was that I came away from that first chat— both of them— with more excitement in my heart for Battlestar Galactica than I’d felt since  those days leading into “Saga of a Star World.” And, as it turned out, for good reason. The show was everything that was suggested in the premise, the writers, cast, and crew pulling together to create some intergalactic magic.
          And more than anything, it’s that— speaking to all of those  people— which has been the highlight of cowriting So Say We All with Mark A. Altman. Engaging in hour upon hour of conversation, gradually piecing the story together, and coming away from it all with not only a greater appreciation for the show, but a true understanding that when everyone who worked on it refers to each other as a  family, you absolutely believe it.
          Prior to this  we’ve written three oral histories: the two volumes of The Fifty- Year Mission, which chronicle the first half  century of Star Trek, and Slayers & Vampires, which takes on both Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. But I’d be lying if I  didn’t say that  there was something extra special about this book, the enthusiastic cooperation of every one we reached out to bringing us into the fold in a way that the  others  haven’t quite done. We’ve relived the entire journey in a way that few outsiders have, feeling as though we’ve stepped onto the CIC of the battlestar Galactica, fought for survival on Caprica and against Cylon occupation on New Caprica, experienced the sense of hopelessness upon discovering the nuclear wasteland that was Earth, fearing the loss of everything as mutiny threatened to tear the remnants of society apart, and, of course, settling on a new Earth to begin the saga anew.
          It’s been one frak of a journey and we’d be happy to do it all over again. So say we both.
