The Carver cover

THE GIRL IN THE RED HOOD has been looking for her mother for six months, searching from the depths of New York’s subways to the heights of its skyscrapers…

THE PRINCE looks like he’s from another time entirely, or maybe he’s just too good at his job at Ye Old Renaissance Faire…

THE ACTRESS is lighting up Hollywood Boulevard with her spellbinding and strikingly convincing portrayal of a famous fairy. Her name may be big, but her secrets barely fit in one world…

Fifteen-year-old Crescenzo never would have believed his father’s carvings were anything more than “stupid toys.” All he knows is a boring life in an ordinary Virginia suburb, from which his mother and his best friend have been missing for years. When his father disappears next, all Crescenzo has left is his goofy neighbor, Pietro, who believes he’s really Peter Pan and that Crescenzo is the son of Pinocchio. What’s more: Pietro insists that they can find their loved ones by looking to the strange collection of wooden figurines Crescenzo’s father left behind.

With Pietro’s help, Crescenzo sets off on an adventure to unite the real life counterparts to his figurines. It’s enough of a shock that they’re actually real, but the night he meets the Girl in the Red Hood, dark truths burst from the past. Suddenly, Crescenzo is tangled in a nightmare where magic mirrors and evil queens rule, and where everyone he loves is running out of time.

BOOK EXCERPT:

“Welcome to Sirenetta’s Diner, gentlemen. You boys ever dined here before?”

Liam cut right to the chase. “Are you Mr. Bellamy?”

The man’s face fell into a tight frown, but Crescenzo assumed by the figurine that the frown was just his natural expression. “I am he. The Lord of the Diner.”

“Violet sent us,” Crescenzo said.

“Mm. You mean Heather, yes?”

“Sure?” Crescenzo was still trying to figure out the rule on what he should be calling the Old World people. He supposed Pietro would forever be Pietro to him and he understood why he needed the new name, but he didn’t feel that somebody like Violet, who wasn’t a part of any story Crescenzo had heard before, needed an alias.

Mr. Bellamy plopped two brunch menus in front of Liam and Crescenzo and poured them each a cup of coffee, to Crescenzo’s dismay. Then the old man leaned over the counter and furrowed his eyebrows. In a tense whisper, he said, “Your presence brings ruin to my happy New World life! Where you go, trouble will surely follow. Now, what can I serve you this morning?”

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY:

When Jacob Devlin was four years old, he would lounge around in Batman pajamas and make semi-autobiographical picture books about an adventurous python named Jake the Snake. Eventually, he traded his favorite blue crayon for a black pen, and he never put it down. When he is not reading or writing, Jacob loves practicing his Italian, watching stand-up comedy, going deaf at rock concerts, and geeking out at comic book conventions. He does most of these things in southern Arizona.

The Other Place – Book Review + Giveaway

The Other Place

Book details:

The Other Place by Elizabeth Roderick
Publication date: July 5th 2016
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult
My Thoughts: 
What I liked most about this book was that the main character is not the usual main character; not the expected personality of a main character. Justin is a guy that the majority of the population won’t relate to directly. There are parts of his character I could relate to and there were parts that I had to try to understand in order to really get into the book. That necessity for me to try to understand him was part of what drew me into the book.
The story line kept moving, I never really felt like I was reading a chapter where nothing happened or a chapter that didn’t move the story along. I wanted to know what would come next and I wasn’t always able to anticipate what was going to be on the next page. Definitely a positive thing in my book. If I can anticipate everything that is going to happen I get bored very quickly. Kudos to the author for keeping me interested!
For me a five-star book is one that I would read again and this book doesn’t really meet that criteria, but I would give it 4 stars.  I’m having a hard time writing this review because I don’t really want to give away anything that isn’t stated in the synopsis that follows. Personally I hate book reviews that have spoilers. That being said, I don’t know what else to write that won’t ruin it for a potential reader so I will end it here.
Even if you don’t think it sounds like your cup of tea I encourage you to at least give it a shot!
Synopsis:

Living in Justin Flaherty’s mind has never been easy. Unfortunately, things are about to get much worse…

At eighteen years old, most guys are chasing girls or dreams. Justin, on the other hand, wants to draw and be left alone. He’s been diagnosed with schizophrenia, but it’s more than that. He’s in tune with the Dark Energy that surrounds us all, and can see how it controls people’s actions. Sometimes, the Dark Energy will give him visions, to help him on the road to enlightenment.

When his mother hooks up with a Baptist preacher named David who believes Justin’s schizophrenia can be cured with prayer, Justin knows he has to get out—or risk involuntary commitment in a religious facility.

After a brush with incarceration, Justin takes off to San Francisco, where his drawings are not just noticed, but admired…

Justin’s bizarre and beautiful drawings create a stir in the art world. Meanwhile, he’s homeless, couch surfing, and trapped in a continuous battle with his mental illness. His salvation is a girl named Liria Czetski with a shady past. They’d met a year ago, and she’s appeared in his visions ever since. It turns out Liria has been sharing those visions, something that is a surprise to everyone but Justin…

When secrets surface, Justin is forced to realize that being a genius has a downside. Surrounded by people who want to exploit his talent, he must fight not only for his career and freedom, but perhaps for his life…

AUTHOR BIO:

ELIZABETH RODERICK grew up as a barefoot ruffian on a fruit orchard near Yakima, in the eastern part of Washington State. After weathering the grunge revolution and devolution in Olympia, Washington, Portland, Oregon and Seattle, she recently moved to a small cluster of houses amidst the vineyards of California’s Central Coast.

She earned a bachelor’s degree in Spanish from The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, and worked for many years as a paralegal and translator. She is a musician and songwriter, and has played in many bands, rocking some instruments she doesn’t even know the real names for, but mostly guitar, bass and keyboards.

Elizabeth writes novels for young adults and adults; short stories; and memoir which is way more interesting than it should be. Her stories are about love, death, gang warfare, and madness; her characters tend to be of the type that society generally shuns: addicts, convicts, and the mentally ill. She believes if people get to know these characters in stories and in real life, they’ll find them more likeable than they originally thought.

She applies Hunter S. Thompson’s Gonzo method to fiction writing. It often gets a little heavier than what she had in mind, but she chalks it up to forced consciousness expansion.

New Book Release – The Dream Protocol: Descent

New Book Release
The Dream Protocol: Descent by Adara Flynn Quick

The Dream Protocol: Descent
Publication date: May 18th 2016
Genres: Dystopia, Young Adult

Looking for a new book?

Check out the information and excerpt below to see if The Dream Protocol: Descent is what you’re looking for! If you have an young adult in your life be sure to share with them also. 

Synopsis:

WHATEVER YOU DO, DON’T GET OLD. In fiery young Deirdre Callaghan’s home of Skellig City, no one has dreamt their own dream in over a thousand years. Dreams are produced by the Dream Makers and sold by the Ministry, the tyrannical rulers of the city. In Skellig City, years of life are awarded equally and the ruined are cast away beneath the city on their 35th birthday.

Unbeknownst to the Ministry, Deirdre’s handsome friend Flynn Brennan is afflicted with a terrible disease – a disease that accelerates the aging process. Knowing his fate if the Ministry should ever discover his illness, Flynn has lived his whole life hiding from their watchful eyes. When Flynn’s secret is finally discovered, Deirdre is determined to free him from the Ministry’s grasp. But to save him, she will have to reveal herself to a shadowy enemy…one that none of them even knew existed.

Excerpt:  Copyright © 2016 Adara Quick

          It was a rare moment on Skellig Michael. The mist-drenched rocks of the isle were illuminated by a ray of sudden sunlight. Pools of water caught in the rock crevices reflected the light skyward. For an instant, the island glistened like a thousand gems cut from the earth. For a moment, it was something beautiful: a lighthouse promising safety through the dark. And then, above the island, the clouds rushed back in. The island returned to its true form, a black shape jagged against the horizon. There was no safety to be found on Skellig Michael, where deep down in the dark and the damp it was custom to take a life before its natural end. Below the waterline of the island, thousands of feet under rock and concrete, Maeve O’Brian watched a timer tick away the last minutes of her life.
          A thousand years ago, a great hole had been dug through the center of the island known as Skellig Michael. Into the hole was poured steel and concrete and the sweat of thousands to build Skellig City. When they finished their great work, the top was sealed again for the city dwellers had no need for the birds in the sky or fresh air upon their faces. The peace of their wild, natural land was denied to them. With the passing of time, the old country was lost. Anything they desired was provided in sleep by the Dream Protocol. Through the rooms and halls of the great concrete city, the dreams floated on invisible networks to the dreamers. As the decades rolled by, many more things were stolen from them. One of these was the number of years that could be lived.
          On the lowest level of their underground home, the citizens had gathered to witness the Ritual of Descent for Maeve O’Brian. The rite began as it had for generations, in a room filled with the smell of bodies crushed against bodies. Too many people were forced into the small space, a reminder of limited resources in their underground home. The clothing of the crowd was another marker of their dwelling, a sign of the order that ruled the place. At the top were the Minister and his Dream Drone soldiers, all dressed in crisp red uniforms. The spider was the insignia of the corporate state, and the eight-legged creature was stitched in gold thread on the left side of each jacket. Next in the power structure were the Dream Makers, clothed in orange hooded robes with wide, flowing sleeves. Their mark was the Maker’s amulet that hung around their necks. Last in line was everyone else, dressed in worn grey clothing that had seen too many patches and repairs. The threadbare grey rags did little to ward off the cold, but the huddled mass of people provided them a welcome respite.

Save Money Everyday with Groupon Coupons

This is a sponsored post. All opinions expressed within are 100% my own.

Save Money Every Day with Groupon Coupons

Anyone who knows me also knows that I love a good sale, great coupons, and saving money on things my family needs (and sometimes wants)! Sure there are things worth paying full price for, but if I can get it on sale or with a coupon it makes them all the better in my book.  This is where Groupon Coupons come in.

If you’ve never used Groupon before it is definitely worth your time to at least check it out.

You can search by stores you frequent. For instance, I can visit Groupon and search for Kohl’s and it will bring up a list of coupons currently available for use at my local store. Plus, with Groupon Coupons I can get instant access to the best coupons available without waiting for a weekly email or monthly circular!

Groupon Coupons

My favorite perk that comes with being a Groupon user is being able to search for deals on spur of the moment purchases. We all have those items that get added to our shopping list at the last minute. With Groupon, instead of going to each store website individually I can just type in the type of item I’m looking for and it will tell me exactly what coupons are available for that item! Easy as pie.

Easy as pie.

My absolute favorite brand to check on? Definitely Shutterfly. I used to watch for emails with daily, weekly, or monthly deals. Then I’d have to keep the email in a folder for easy access or write the codes down along with the promotion end date in case I wanted to used them. It worked. It wasn’t pretty or efficient, but it worked.

Now I have a better way!

Shutterfly Groupon Coupons

That’s 19 codes I didn’t have to write down, 19 emails I didn’t have to save, and 19 minutes longer I can spend with Dragonling because I didn’t have to hunt for that promo code!

Do yourself and your budget a favor, go check out Groupon Coupons!

You can also follow Groupon on Facebook and Twitter to get information about
great deals in your area!

Summer is Coming

Summer is coming
Summer is coming. Slowly but surely, little by little. 

Twenty days and counting.

Friday… one day closer.
 
For many people their favorite day of the week.
 
As a teacher, I have a love/hate relationship with Friday’s. It’s the last day before I have some time away from full-time teacher duty but it is also the day I get the least amount of focus from my students.
 
It usually starts out pretty well, but by the last class of the day if I can get them to stay on task for half an hour I’m doing pretty good.
 
By fifth block today, I was tired and a little frustrated because my fourth-hour students weren’t understanding the skills we were working on as well as I thought they would. So instead of getting them started on the activity and walking around to check in with each set of partners I ended up running all over the room answering questions for which I knew they should already have the answers.
 
After about ten minutes of constant questions, I started asking myself, ‘Why don’t they understand this concept? What did I forget to teach them? How can I help them learn this concept?’ And on and on.
 
Then I stopped to reflect on what I had done to help them learn these skills.
 
My thought process went something like this, ‘We have been working on these skills all week. Each day I added a little more complexity and a couple more vocabulary terms that fit into the big idea. Building up ideas a little bit at a time. I’ve given them a notes page each day to fill in important information as it comes up. I’ve even looked at and provided feedback on all their practice work in a timely manner. What else do I need to do? Why aren’t they getting it?’
 
I went into fifth-hour with these thoughts at the forefront of my mind.
 
Just like in the previous class, I explained the activity and broke my students up into random partnerships. At this point, one of my students decided that she would have nothing of working with a person I chose and walked out. (Par for the course on a Friday…) After that brief interruption everyone got started and, as before, I expected to just make leisurely rounds checking for understanding occasionally and making sure everyone was on track. (Fingers crossed that my misjudgment was isolated to just one class.)
 
I was hoping to hear some good mathematical discussion about how to solve the problems.  What I got was a repeat of fourth-hour with the added fun of indignant, disrespectful comments about how long it took me to get to each group with their hand up.
 
After I got off my soap box about patience and disrespect, I went back to the questions at the front of my mind.
 
‘Why aren’t they getting it and what can I do to help them?’
 

In a brief epiphany, I realized that I was the problem. I wasn’t making them try hard enough on their own. I was encouraging their learned helplessness. Rather than first asking them if they had checked their notes, read the problem again, and consulted their partner I just answered their question.

Not only did I answer the question but I told them why. I didn’t make them figure it out.

I was the problem.

This is only my third year as a teacher, I learn new things every day, but I think that my discovery  epiphany Friday afternoon was one that will be a game changer.  I knew that learned helplessness was a problem but I thought I had been doing a decent job of trying to combat the issue in my classes. My frustrating Friday told me I was wrong. I had been doing a little bit, but I wasn’t doing enough.

 
I know it’s not something that can or will change overnight. That’s not a good way to make changes in a teaching style, not if you want it to be permanent and effective. It will take time, but summer is coming.
 
Summer is coming.

My featured blogger this week is Chantal, The Busy Blogging Mom! Her post,
12 Housekeeping Tips for the Unnatural Homemaker, was just what I needed to help me remember that I don’t have to be perfect at keeping house as long as I do my best! 

12 Housekeeping Tips for the Unnatural Housekeeper

My favorite tip?

Set a timer and go hard for 15 minutes each day.

I mean, who doesn’t have at least 15 minutes a day to devote to keeping house. Did you lay in bed for an extra 15 minutes this morning? Or sit on the couch for a half hour to watch your favorite show? If you can make time for that I’m sure you can find 15 minutes to make your life a little less crazy every day! 

Check out her post for other great housekeeping tips.
