Cat Welcomes Author Pavane Ravel To The Reading Den & Her Novel Series ‘The Other Shoes of Larry Martin.’ Book One Has Now Released Titled ‘Revelation of Lies’…

Hello and Welcome to all my readers,

Cat is so honored and very excited to share a new emerging author with all of (you), my readers, friends, and new visitors to Cats Reading Den.

Author Pavane Ravel

Meet Ms. Pavane Ravel. Pavane is a unique writer and wordsmith of dramatic literary, twisty political fiction novels. Her new novel series is titled “The Other Shoes of Larry Martin,” and, as she shared with me, she has been ‘living and breathing’ her main character of Larry Martin for quite some time now. Well, let’s just say…for writing over six more books to come in this novel series, and that, they say, is a whole lot of writing, my friends!

I am reading the first novel and introduction to her series titled “Revelation of Lies,: I have to say her writing style sort of reminds me a little of another author I enjoyed reading years back, Mr. Harold Robbins who wrote many literary fiction novels that incorporated loads of topics in his books like sexiness, salty language, murder, politics, and so much more. he wrote with just “Letting It All Hang-Out” so to speak. Hopefully, Pavane won’t be too harsh on Cat for that comparison! But I do enjoy books that do! Even though they are lit fiction, they are real and raw.

So who is Pavane Ravel? I think I will share some of this from her amazing Press Release, some in her own words, and a few questions and answers she shared as she will be the Featured Author & Interviewed by Deb of Book Goodies in a few short weeks. So without any more delay.

“I grew up in a conservative Catholic home. My father was a politician involved in the ‘moral majority,’ which sought to criminalize gays and destroy women’s reproductive rights. As a child, I didn’t know better. But eventually, I had my own revelation about what I believed. I found extreme conservatism to be narrow-minded and authoritarian. Its policies inflicted the worst kind of misery. I noted the hypocrisy and deceit. All of it changed me.

Growing up, I closely observed the viciousness of conservatives. I saw that they didn’t care about living with children, so long as they could force a woman to have a child. And after that child was born, it was a ‘moocher’ if the mother needed government support in feeding that child.

I watched Ronald Reagan throw the mentally ill out of hospitals and onto the streets. People who needed food stamps and supplemental family aid were called ‘welfare queens.’ The American way was to ‘pull yourself up by your bootstraps.’

I have watched the decimation and underfunding of public education. As a result, much of America is no longer well educated.

I have lived through the Recession of 2008, where approximately half the country lost their homes and savings.

I have observed the current crisis of rising rents, resulting in a horrific increase in homelessness. All of this relates to the conservative fiscal policies of ‘trickle-down economics’ which have never worked.

Then, in 2010, the Supreme Court ruled for Citizens United, essentially allowing corporations to become people. (The only dissenting opinion came from Associate Justice John Paul Stevens who argued this ruling represented ‘a rejection of the common sense of the American people who recognize the need to prevent corporations from undermining self-government.’) And of course, this ruling DID allow the billionaire donor class to buy the government through dark super-PAC donations. As was feared, the Citizens United ruling boosted the electoral success of Republican candidates. But that was the sole purpose.

And as was feared, over time, conservative policies funneled the money upward from the middle class until a handful of billionaires own more than 60% of the world’s wealth. I feel this is awful and morally wrong.

I am neither an economist nor a political scientist – although I studied political science at University and ultimately became a commodities broker reporting on the technical nature of economics and the impact on the domestic markets. 

As a progressive, I have been frustrated over conservative policies that help the ultra-wealthy, but not the people. I have watched homelessness rise under Trump. And thus began the kernel of my idea for The Other Shoes of Larry Martin. I never dreamed it would turn into a series, but now, I am on Book Five. I do try to illuminate some things in these books — that kindness can change the world, toxic masculinity is not the answer, and governmental policies can be used for good or ill. And, of course, more.

Book One begins the contemporary story of a young man who faces his failings and must change and grow in order to succeed. I hope you will join me on his journey of learning, discovery, and a transition to a better path.”

Larry Martin The Main Character

Beginning in book one of ‘Revelation of Lies,’ Larry is fired, he finds himself with no friends. He knows he’s in serious trouble and immediately tries to find work. He calls all his contacts, but no one is interested in helping him. He is down to one last contact to call. The most important one. It’s to Peter Bennett, the only guy he’s ever respected. Larry knows Peter works for a big-time progressive web-based newspaper. Maybe Peter will give him a chance to write?

Peter is kind. Even knowing that Larry worked at The Bart Data Report – a site he considers a trash heap of conspiracy theories and bomb-throwing agitation – he allows Larry to submit two timely political articles. He doesn’t think Larry has the skill set to write at the level of The Political Standard, but he would see.

While Larry is researching his articles for Peter, he begins the struggle of opening his mind from a closed conservative mentality to a massive new progressive worldview. He barely gets his articles written when disaster strikes and he suddenly becomes all that he has mocked and despised. Now, he has to survive. And after he is struck by a shattering revelation, he knows he has to change.

Profoundly. Deeply. Totally. And to keep changing until he becomes an entirely different person.
He would save himself in this way …

The Other Shoes of Larry Martin

Revelation of Lies

by Pavane Ravel 

“Finally, a dynamic Progressive hero for the Progressive minded!

Pavane Ravel delivers a powerful new novel – a riveting story of transformation and inspiration! This book is a compelling combination of Progressive politics, enduring friendships, metaphysical exploration, and personal triumph. I loved this book and I’ll wholeheartedly
recommend it to all my friends!”

— John Wildermuth, Atlanta based musician and Former Music Librarian, Atlanta Symphony 


Written by the emerging author, Pavane Ravel, The Other Shoes of Larry Martin tells the captivating story of a politically conservative young man, Larry, who endures a number of hardships that lead him to become homeless and hit rock bottom. 

He is forced to face the reality of his life choices and reflect on why he has no friends and why he often treated people very poorly throughout his life. 

During his turbulent fight for survival, he arrives at the conclusion that he must undergo a drastic transformation in order to find peace and personal success.  He resolves to make significant changes and become a completely different person. 

The Other Shoes of Larry Martin is a story. Larry’s story — of hard times, revelation, growth, and transformation. There is sadness and joy. Discipline and discovery. Trauma and recovery.

Conservative policies are “savage cruelty” — Larry Martin


UP Coming Valentine Featured Author Interview Q&A On Book Goodies ~ Sneak Peek Read

Book goodies: What inspires you to write? 

I was born wanting to write. As a child, once I learned how to read, all I did was read. Then, at age 13, I decided to try to write my first book, The Leader of Yore. It took me 5 years, writing in the dark and in secret from my parents. Finally, I ended up with 322 single-spaced hand-written pages. This book was for me. I had wanted to find out what it took to write a novel and I did. After I was done, I put the manuscript in a drawer and never looked back. 

As life went on, between college, marriage, working full time, raising children, maintaining a household, and paying attention to my lovely husband, I had no time to write during normal hours. But, when my kids were in middle school, I was bitten hard by another inspiration for a book called Hepplewhite.
I loved Hepplewhite and I often wrote at night when everyone was asleep. I lived and breathed this book. It took me years to finish, writing a little at a time. But I did finish. And by now, I knew that all I wanted to do was become a full-time novelist.
What inspires me to write? The love of writing itself. And the complex process of turning imagination into a living thing on paper that can be shared. 

I am finally able to fulfill my dream of writing full-time. It’s a good thing. Because when I was struck with the idea for a series titled, The Other Shoes of Larry Martin, I realized that by the time I was done, this series would come in between 4,000 to 5,000 pages, spread over at least 7 books. And that is exactly what is happening. Larry Martin, is for me, just monumental. 

Who are YOUR favorite authors?

Ken Follett, John Grisham, Diana Gabaldon, Ernest Hemingway, Truman Capote, Charles Dickens, J.R.R. Tolkien, Kathleen Woodiwiss, Nora Roberts, Jack London, and Robert Reich … just to name a few of them.

The Featured Author Interview will be available on Book Goodies Network around Valentine’s Day! Make sure you take a visit to read the of the interview with Pavane Ravel>>>>

Special Guest Literary Article by Our Friends of TCK Publishing. What Are The 2022 Predictions With Publishing Trends and New In Marketing and Promoting?

by Kaelyn Barron ~ TCK Publishing

Free Photo | Close-up portrait of woman listening to music and reading a  book

There have been many notable changes in the publishing industry over the last several years, from the steady rise of audiobook sales to the introduction of AI technology in book production.

A global pandemic and calls for more diverse representation shook things up in 2020 and 2021, so what’s in store for 2022?

We’ve analyzed some of the most prominent trends based on recent studies and our own data and observations to get a feel for what’s to come in the year ahead.

Here are 6 key publishing trends and predictions to look out for in 2022.

1. BookTok is a marketing must-have.

In 2021, TikTok became one of the fastest-growing social media platforms and an essential tool for branding and marketing. The publishing industry also caught on, with many authors and publishers turning to TikTok to grow their audiences.

Following in the path of “Bookstagram,” BookTok appears to be here to stay, with all trends indicating that even more authors will join the platform to market their books in 2022. So far, the hashtag #BookTok has garnered over 34.7 billion views on the platform.

We’ve seen the impact of BookTok firsthand with one of our own authors, Maclen Stanley, who has accumulated over 424,000 followers and 6 million likes in just a few months since his book The Law Says What? debuted in July. Many reviewers on Amazon have commented that they bought the book specifically because they enjoyed his related TikTok videos.

Book reviewers have also taken to the platform to share their thoughts on new books in short, easily-shared video clips, making them an influential force that authors and publishers cannot afford to ignore in 2022. To learn more about how TikTok can help you grow your platform, check out our post on TikTok marketing for authors.

2. Audiobook sales will keep growing.

Although they’re still nowhere near topping print, audio, and ebook sales have been steadily rising for the past decade or so, with the audiobook industry, in particular, seeing rapid expansion.

One major development from 2021 was Spotify’s acquisition of Findaway, which likely indicates Spotify’s intent to give more focus to audiobooks, in addition to their current library of music and podcasts. Storytel also acquired, so there are now multiple players on the expanding audiobook field.

As we watch these companies implement their growth plans in 2022, audiobook sales are likely to continue their steady increase. Authors and publishers will want to keep their eye on these new and emerging opportunities to market their audiobooks.

As for the industry itself, there are a number of developments that will make audiobook production easier and faster, including rapid technological developments like AI narration.

3. AI will expand its influence.

Speaking of AI, it’s already being used to write fiction that improves almost daily. While it’s far from replacing human creativity, AI can help content creators find inspiration, retrieve facts, and outline their writing.

Of course, you’ve probably already used AI to improve your writing in some form or another—for example, if you’ve ever used a proofreading tool like Grammarly.

But publishers can also use the technology for plagiarism checks, editing, translations, SEO, and marketing. For example, if you’ve ever gotten a newsletter email with content recommendations that match your interests, you can thank AI for that.

Think of AI as publishing’s virtual assistant, and one that will prove increasingly helpful in the years to come.

4. Book prices will increase.

Inflation has caused the prices of many goods and services to rise over the past year, and it looks like book prices will be no exception.

IngramSpark already announced price changes that took effect on November 6, 2021, raising their print pricing by up to 6% in the US.

In a public service announcement to its members, the company explained that the changes are a result of “several cost increases for consumables, such as paper and packaging materials, as well as an increase in the cost of labor.”

So since the cost of producing books has risen, so too will their prices.

And on top of growing costs, there’s also a book shortage. As this Vox article explains, back in 2008, the world expected print books to become obsolete after the rise of the ebook, so many companies invested less in printing books.

But instead, the demand for print books has steadily increased (after experiencing a brief drop in 2008), and printers have not kept up.

The silver lining is that with book prices on the rise for both print and digital formats, special, limited-time promos like Kindle Countdown Deals could prove more appealing, allowing readers to benefit from discounts while authors can sell more books in a short period…

5. Serialized storytelling will continue to flourish.

Serialized fiction on platforms like Wattpad is nothing new, but there are more options than ever for both writers and readers of serials.

Amazon’s Kindle Vella rolled out last year, adding another prominent player to the serialized fiction field.

Some authors are finding serial fiction to be a more reliable monetization strategy than traditional publishing. Self-published authors in particular will benefit from this development, as they’re more likely than traditionally published authors to experiment with these platforms.

Sites like Wattpad, Kindle Vella, Inkitt, Tapas, Radish, and other online reading apps will continue to flourish as more authors experiment with different formats.

6. Calls for diversity will persist.

Calls for more diversity and representation in literature have grown stronger in recent years, and with all the work still left to do, it’s likely that those calls will persist.

In 2020, a study found that just 5% of children’s books published in the UK that year featured a main character who was Black or Asian (that’s actually an increase from 1% in 2017).

Meanwhile, in the US, children’s books featuring racially diverse characters or subjects grew slightly from 29% to 30% between 2019 and 2020.

Since it can take several years for a children’s book to be produced, we can hope to see more of the effects of 2020 and 2021’s intensified calls for diversity in 2022.

And it’s not just children’s books that need more diverse voices—according to a 2019 study, 85% of the people who acquire and edit books for the Big Five are white. This means that the people who decide what gets published by the Big Five, and how the final products turn out, are overwhelmingly white.

One way that publishers have begun to address this issue is by hiring editors tasked with recruiting more minority talent and also enlisting the help of sensitivity readers.

Is Publishing a Dying Industry?

The publishing industry is far from dying; in fact, print books rose 8.9% in 2021 over 2020.

And rather than hurting business, the Covid-19 pandemic actually saw many positive developments and increased book sales in 2020—a silver lining in an otherwise dark year for many.

Regardless of trends, there’s no better time than the present to finally write your book, or apply for that publishing job you’ve been eyeing.

Everyone loves a good story, so while their formats and production may change, books and publishing are here to stay.

Cynthia Ulmer

Author Cynthia Ulmer is an award medal-recipient writer of her ‘Southern Family Fictional’ series, “The Cedar Cove Chronicles,” a Christian-themed fiction drama series about family life, love, faith, and endurance. Books one and four are medal-winners received by ‘Wishing Shelf Indie Book Awards’ and awarded several 5-star book reviews by Readers Favorite. Ms. Ulmer has released her new book series titled “Beyond Cedar Cove” in December 2021. The author’s titles are available on Amazon, Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble, and many online bookstores.

As the author shares, “Some people struggle with what they’re meant to do in life, and others know it all along. I’ve known since I was a small child that I wanted to write–the stories were always in my head.” The Cedar Cove Chronicles is a beautiful book series set in the fictional community of Cedar Cove, North Carolina, which follows the lives of ‘The Jansan Family,’ their friends and neighbors during the 40s and 50s.”

The author describes her fictional family drama as, “Have you ever been to Cedar Cove? Once you visit, life for you will never be the same. You will never want to read about witches, warlocks, and evil forces again. The powerful emotions of Love, Unity, Harmony, Dreams, Forgiveness, Reconciliation and a clear understanding of the Love of Christ will visit you and remain a part of your life.”

These good people will live with you daily in the author’s six-book series. You will not be able to wait until this evening’s quiet reading moments to get to the next scene. It is almost like these people are real. The author hopes the ‘Holy Spirit will touch readers to change the way people in America and the world love will care about each other. “It will change the kinds of books you look forward to reading forever”. . .

When Cynthia is not writing, she loves cooking, crocheting, listening to music, reading some of her favorite authors of Wiley Cash, Clyde Edgerton, and Stephen King. Her pleasure reading genres are Southern fiction, mysteries, short stories, poetry, autobiographies, and biographies. Most of all, she enjoys spending time with her family, her grandchildren, and her friends. Today she resides in North Carolina.

Princess Caroline of Basset Hound Kingdom is left in charge when her parents leave for a conference. She had hoped things would be simple, but an unexpected disturbance, an unsettling one, threatens to ruin her growing excitement about the upcoming ball. Strange things are happening all over the kingdom, things are going missing, and it’s all happening to people close to the princess. Is she the ultimate target? Has someone from her past resurfaced to wreak havoc in her life? Accompanied by her best friends, twins Willow and Daisy, the three make an awesome sleuthing team. But is there someone close to the princess at the palace who is leaking valuable information to the enemy? Who can the princess trust?

Anne Fifield’s early chapter book, Princess Caroline’s Adventures Book 5: A Case of Unfinished Business, continues in the series of Princess Caroline and her sleuthing adventures in the Basset Hound Kingdom. Told in simple language so early readers can enjoy using their growing reading skills, and accompanied by black and white sketches, the plot follows Princess Caroline’s first exposure to addressing the community members. She is presented with growing concern over these unexplained happenings and the need to take action before things escalate.

The princess and her two friends have solved mysteries before and, although the community members are seeking advice and direction as to what they should do, the princess takes matters into her own hands to solve the mystery, all while preparing for the upcoming formal ball. There are a lot of mysteries swirling around the palace, mysteries that even cast doubt on her friends – can she still trust them? With building tension, good descriptive narrative, and compelling dialogue, this fast-paced doggy mystery is a thrill to read.

I especially enjoyed the dog-friendly remarks like Willow’s comment to Princess Caroline: “You’re a pawsome speaker.” Another great Princess Caroline read.”

Anne Fifield is the creative visionary and best-selling children’s author of “The Princess Caroline’s Adventures” book series. Written for ages 7 to 12 and the young at heart, she is delighting kids worldwide. Her books are unique as she weaves in the elements of her rescued doggies, specifically basset hounds, into each of her stories and book covers.

Anne is the youngest of three siblings and was born and raised outside Oklahoma City, OK. She met and married the love of her life, Tom, and they have been married for 24+years. Their kids are the four-legged variety who had adopted them over the years.

Anne’s career was also her passion. She was an ‘American Sign Language Interpreter’ for over 25-years and taught ASL at the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma. Since both were her passions, she says she felt like she never worked a day in her life. In 2006, she became heavily involved in basset rescue and co-founded another one in 2011.

Anne, now retired, decided to move on to her next passion, the love of writing. She and her husband have rescued and fostered basset hounds for 20-years, so as Anne shares, “it felt natural to write children’s books with bassets as the characters. Our hounds provide the comic antics and inspiration for all my books. Thus, “Princess Caroline’s Adventures Series was born.”

Anne and her husband enjoy retired life and reside in the ‘Great State of Texas.’

“During our first days in Gamblers Anonymous, we got rid of the trappings and environments of gambling. We had to get rid of these, for we knew they surely would have killed us. We got rid of the situation, but we could not get rid of our addiction until we took further action. So we also had to learn to toss self-pity, self-justification, self-righteousness, and self-will straight out the window.

We had to get off the rickety ladder that supposedly was the easy way to money, property, and prestige. And we had to take personal responsibility. To gain enough humility and self-respect to stay alive at all, we had to give up our most familiar possessions, and our driven ambition, and our…
