THIS CAT could not be more proud and so happy for Dave that I wanted to share the Press Release and Review!



For Immediate Release:

Author Dave Lager and his new book receive a warm literary welcome.

Readers’ Favorite announces the review of the Fiction – Crime book “Losses” by Dave Lager, currently available at http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1736482823.

Readers’ Favorite is one of the most significant book review and award contest sites on the Internet. They have earned the respect of renowned publishers like Random House, Simon & Schuster, and Harper Collins and have received the “Best Websites for Authors” and “Honoring Excellence” awards from the Association of Independent Authors. They are also fully accredited by the BBB (A+ rating), which is a rarity among Book Review and Book Award Contest companies.

“Reviewed By Trudi LoPreto for Readers’ Favorite

Losses by Dave Lager is a story of crime, family, friends, co-workers, and so much more. The story centers on Deputy Sheriff Ro Delahanty and her everyday life as a policewoman, a member of SWAT, and a daughter, sister, and friend. She has worked hard to move up the ranks and will not be satisfied until she has top honors in as many different available situations. Ro has gone through SWAT training and come out at the top of her class. When she is called to an apparent drug scene with hostages, she is forced to deal with her Irish temper, her strong sense of right and wrong, and the behind-the-scenes workings of the law.

I got caught up in Losses from page one and found that the action went on and on. Several different stories are happening simultaneously, making Losses even more exciting as each new turn takes the reader somewhere surprising. Ro is not your standard ‘policewoman/female detective’ character, which was different and refreshing and allowed for a much stronger storyline than the usual female cop mystery.

While I did not read books one and two in the series, I was never lost or left out of the story, and it stood perfectly on its own merit. Dave Lager must be congratulated on creating a strong but still very everyday real woman who just happens to be a deputy sheriff.

I highly suggest all who enjoy this genre read this book! I look forward to the future for more Ro Delahanty adventures.”


You can learn more about Dave Lager and “Losses” at https://readersfavorite.com/book-review/losses, where you can read reviews and the author’s biography, as well as connect with the author directly or through their website and social media pages. Dave’s series of e-books are now on sale for only $2.99 each on Amazon Kindle.

CAT SHARES SOME E-BOOK, PRE-ORDER, and UPCOMING SALES



Now, this Readers Favorite 5-Star Awarded Book Review Read is nothing short of fantastic. Beautifully written by Author Barbara Daniels Dena and her writing Yorkie, Miss Magical Zoe! Below is ZOE at the computer changing the price of Barb’s e-book now ON SALE. It is a delightful collection of short stories that are fun, inspiring, and funny.

Here is a little of what the Readers Favorite reviewer shared about “FOR The SOUL”… “For the Soul: A Collection of Short Stories was written by Barbara Daniels-Dena. Quilts, children, and dogs – what more can life offer? Well, stories, of course. And, where there are quilts, children, and dogs, there’s bound to be lots of stories. Life is full of stories: funny stories, heart-wrenching and heart-warming stories, fiction, and creative nonfiction. Like the author, I recall spending hours rifling through my grandmother’s button box.

There were all kinds of buttons: large, small, brightly colored, shiny, or dull. These buttons were a source of inspiration for stories, learning to count, learning the colors, and just savoring the precious moments spent with my grandmother. Life and those accessories we collect during our lifetime are full of stories. But so are our imaginations, our dreams, and the random thoughts that swirl around in our heads – so many stories to share.”

Barbara’s e-book is now on sale for only .99 cents a copy and is available at http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/057896835 Amazon Kindle and would make a great holiday gift for moms!

Hey Kids, My New Friend, and Writer of Fun Kids Books For You to Read–Meet ‘Big Red Chicken’…

Hello and Welcome to Mom’s, Dad’s, and Grandparents too!
Cat is hoping you will share this post with your kids. Meet my friend and awesome author, Lance Nevis. But to children, he is known nationally as “Big Red Chicken™” and has many adorable children’s books you can read to the kids in your home this summer into fall. Even the adults get some tickles and giggles.

So here is a little more about Big Red, about how he began writing children’s books way back in 2007. He self-publishes them himself as he founded ‘Animal Rain Productions’ back in 2010. He helps give back to autism research.

Here is a message from Big Red aka,. Lance Nevis as he shares in his own words a wee bit more!

Animal Rain Productions. Publishing company that produces the best kid's books in 2020


“I have long dreamed of doing something to make a difference. I have always had an artistic side playing music, singing, and writing my whole life. My hopes are that one day these books will help raise money and awareness towards the fight against autism …as all the books are dedicated to my autistic nephew Michael Nevis Jr., and my hopes are that with the help of supporters, readers, and the social media age that I will be able to help raise money and awareness for autism.

“These are poetic books with fantasy inspired by some of my life events. They promote imagination and artistic stimulation. I have been told that some of the words are difficult yet I believe they encourage the building of vocabulary. Kids are smart and inquisitive as they will ask how to pronounce words and when they learn a word, they will then ask what it means if they do not know them.”   

“The story of me writing these books start way back as letters to my daughter. See, there was a time in my life that my struggles with alcohol brought me some trouble which caused my daughter and me to be separated. I could not stand the fact that I was putting her through this and vowed that I would get her out this as fast as I could.”

“Certain officials had told me the rules of letter writing while she was in this situation. I thought about it for a while and my first book Animal Rain was born in 2007. I have since then started my own publishing company which is called Animal Rain Productions and have a total of five books released, two of which are new releases and are color-combo books.”

Now, about my nickname, one-day on a fishing trip three years ago a little boy was running up and down the shore insisting that I was Big Red Chicken™ LOL, his Dad said, “Son, you don’t know him well enough to call him that.” The boy then said, “No Dad, that’s Big Red Chicken!” Since then it has stuck. So I hired an attorney and trademarked the name, “Big Red Chicken. ™”

“My books are made to bring people together and instill imagination in the minds of children. Although it has been a struggle getting noticed, I have endured and continue to believe in my dream that one day these stories will be in the hands of many and bring joy and a smile to them all!” 

“Thank you for all the support that has been given to me on this incredible journey. 

God Bless, Big Red Chicken …A special “Thanks” to my Mom and Dad who sometimes think I am a little crazy but yet continue to support me.”

Hello and Welcome Readers and Friends,

.
petshop3

“We are honored and excited to introduce to you our new children’s author we are promoting and a writer extraordinaire, James S. Martinez. He is pretty popular with the little kids these days, as he has just released two new children’s books and they are grabbing 5 star book reviews like crazy! He is also the owner of Helping Tales Publishing. There is much to learn about this wonderful author, so how about we get right to it with a wee bit more about him” . . .

About The Author:
James S. Martinez was born in December of 1963 on Ramey, AFB in Puerto Rico. He attended Kent State University and was awarded an MS in Biomedical Sciences in 2001. He has been an avid reader and dedicated volunteer for many years and believes wholeheartedly that “One person can make a difference”. It’s with this belief in mind that he and co-founder Timothy T. Civick, created Helping Tales Publishers.

Helping Tales Publishers has committed to making reading have a positive impact on the world by “helping those in need, one story at a time”. In order to accomplish this mission, Helping Tales Publishers writes and produces entertaining, empowering, and educational books that teach empathy, compassion and service to the community to children of all ages.

James Martinez is a freshman author with two books in print, Patches’ Awesome Day and Diamonds in the Ruff. Each book is written in a whimsical tone with rhyming verse. The simple and fun stories are paired with beautiful illustrations created by Timothy T. Civick that captivate and enchant the reader. These books also serve the purpose of raising funds to aid various charities across the country. A quote from Diamonds in the Ruff summarizes why Helping Tales Publishers was created.

“If there’s a need, help the cause,
Whether you help people or those with paws.
By helping one, you help us all.
Take up the fight and heed the call!”
“Please be on the lookout for more books from James S. Martinez and Helping Tales Publishers.”

So I asked James a couple of questions about his writing and being a children’s author. Here is what he had to say about both.

1.) How did you begin to write children’s books?
“I got into writing children’s books to help my shelter by having fun books that talked about animals and that would teach wonderful lessons and donating a portion of the proceeds to charity. After looking at the different books that were available, I decided on a “Dog” book that would entertain and teach.
I always loved Dr. Seuss books so I adopted a rhyming scheme to keep the stories fun and easy to read.  My goal is to help kids learn great lessons while having fun and empowering them to make a positive difference in the world.” 

2.) What has been the most exciting event or experience for you since becoming a writer and published author?

The most exciting event was probably when I released my book, “The Most Incredible Journey: A Pibble’s Path” and I was at the Pit Bull event that we launched the book at. I had lots of people stop by and thank me for writing such a great advocacy book and how the book was so heartwarming and painted the breed in a wonderful light.  I was wonderful to see how my book could be used to educate about a cause and entertain but most of all, we were able to donate from the proceeds from the event charity.

James is an advocate of many issues. Animals, Animal Shelter & Rescue, Teaching Children, Bullying and more! And he uses his books as a teaching aid for parents, so they can talk about tough life events & lessons with in a lighter way with their small children. So here is more about the two New Books. I urge you again to visit his wonderful website over at Helping Tales!  It has all his books listed to purchase and the colors, illustrations and characters are adorable.
