#CelebrateChildrensBooks with Miss Ruby Heart

Christmas is Coming

Oh, we have exciting news for you #BookLovers.  We have created a delightful #ChristmasAdventCalendar to celebrate reading children’s books #BookAdvent click on the image to visit. Just remember there is no peeking until the actual day is here.

So throughout December we will reveal a different children’s book behind each door. Many of these you may not have heard of as they are by very talented #IndieAuthors who struggle to self-promote. We are therefore here to #SpreadTheWord and show some love on their behalf.

Also behind each door, there will be a link after the image to take you to our #Facebook party page where you will be able to find out more about the author of the book on that day. There will be fun, games, Christmas carols, the odd joke and perhaps a giveaway or two.

Starting today in anticipation of the event we have not one but two wonderful books on #SpecialPromo from our lovely friend Rose English. Click on the image to take a peek inside over on Amazon.

‘Young Ebenezer ~ A New Christmas Carol’

Think #CharlesDickens but for kids meet the magical clock ~ Grandfather Time. Meet Miss Ruby Heart ~ Ghost of Christmas Past and also Young Ebenezer who really hates sharing and is sadly not very caring. Can the boy learn the error of his ways?

‘Seal Mother ~ A Selkie Tale in Verse’

A #StoryInVerse with illustration by Hannah Ryan about a #Selkie from #Folklore half seal half human. Midsummers Eve the seal walks upon the land as a beaufitul maiden. However when her beautiful skin is stolen she is trapped in her human form.

Thank you for visiting, don’t forget to #SpreadTheWord these wonderful books are on #KindleCountdown for seven days. More to come from Tuesday 1st December. So watch this space.

#NewRelease ‘Fantasy Snowflakes’

‘Fantasy Snowflakes Coloring Book’

By J.S. Burke

Another delightful colouring book of Fantasy Snowflakes has been created by the very talented J.S. Burke and we love it as much as the first one. Here is the blurb:

De-stress and unwind with hand-drawn mandalas. These original snowflake designs are created from animals and plants. Color 24 pictures and 24 ornaments. Let your imagination soar!

Drawings range from simple to detailed. Designs include Dragons, Narwhals, Bunnies, Horses, Owls, Flower Fairies, Mermaids, Octopus, Bird-of-Paradise, and more. Learn to fold and cut out lacy paper snowflakes to hang as unique decorations.

The Fantasy Snowflakes coloring/activities books are inspired by the award-winning “Dragon Dreamer” series: Science Fantasy with dragons and an undersea world.

Goodreads Book Review

Fantasy Snowflakes Coloring Book II

Fantasy Snowflakes Coloring Book II by J.S. Burke
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Book 109 of my Goodreads Challenge 2020

Another fantastical delight to help you un-wind with beautiful fantasy snowflakes created from animals and plants. Also inspired by the ‘Dragon Dreamer Series’ 

In the coloring book each magical flake has a brief description below with some fact and fantasy words for you to enjoy. Did you know for example that an octopus has nine hearts – one in each of its arms. This is a truly therapeutic book for all ages.

If you have not read ‘The Dragon Dreamer Series’ like these beautiful Fantasy Snowflake Books they are all. Very Highly Recommended.

About the Author

J. S. Burke is an author, artist, chemist, and marine biologist, studying creatures of the dark abyss and diving on coral reefs. She lives in Georgia with her family and rescue pets.

It’s immense fun to write novels that blend imagination with real science and author experiences. Living on a ship far from shore, J. S. Burke traveled in a circle of blue and learned to walk with the sea. The Dragon Dreamer series is science fantasy adventure with flying dragons, an undersea world, and unexpected friendship. The deadly sea storm that threatens the young dragon Arak, in The Dragon Dreamer, is one that the author survived.

Very Highly Recommended

Goodreads Book Review

Olly : The Top Security Dog (Olly The Jack Series Book 1)Olly : The Top Security Dog by Chris Turnbull
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

No rest for a Jack on a mission.

Olly is no slouch, he takes his job very seriously. When things go missing around his home he is soon out on the trail. He’s a quick little Jack and wastes no time hunting high and low.

He runs round the neighbourhood interviewing all his doggy pals. He even tracks down the cat in the pub.

This is a delightful, rythmical read with beautiful bright illustrations. A real treat for the young and those simply young at heart like me. Dog lovers check it out. Very highly recommended.

If you’ve not checked out Emy’s story based on true events, I would recommend this too.
