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.”

About Kim Carter:

Kim Carter is an award-winning author of suspense, mystery and thriller novels.

She was a finalist for the 2018 Killer Nashville Silver Falchion Award and a recipient of the 2017 TCK Publishers’ Readers’ Choice Award for her book Murder Among The Tombstones. This is the first book in her Clara and Iris Mystery series. The characters in this series are a couple of overly curious widows who become private investigators. These funny women were inspired by Kim’s mother and her mom’s best friend.

Her other titles include Sweet Dreams, Baby Belle, When Dawn Never Comes, Deadly Odds, No Second Chances, and her latest, And The Forecast Called For Rain.


Sweet Dreams, Baby Belle     Murder Among The Tombstones

Only $1.99! New Mystery Series ~ A Clara and Iris Mystery Series ~ Sweet Dreams Baby Belle Book One and Murder Among Book Two.

Kim’s writing career started after she suffered an illness that made her housebound for a couple of years. An avid reader of mystery novels herself, she embarked on writing as a means of filling her time. She began to share those early writings with friends and family who encouraged her to pursue writing professionally. Her health struggles and successes have been chronicled on The Lifetime Television in early 2000, The Atlanta-Journal Constitution, Women’s Day Magazine, and Guidepost.

Prior to her illness, Kim worked in many different capacities in county government as her “Day Job,” but ultimately, it was her job as a correctional officer that provided her the opportunities to talk and interact with a diverse group of people. Her experiences ran the gamete of inspiring success stories to tragic endings, much like her mysteries.

She self-published her first book No Second Chances. One of the guest speakers at the launch party she had at the Performing Arts Center in Newnan, Georgia included her close friend retired Atlanta Police Chief Eldrin Bell. This connection would become helpful as she started doing more research for other books, this time working with a small publishing house.

Kim began networking and made connections with numerous homicide detectives, medical examiners, and prison officials. Her research has taken her many places including morgues, death row, and the occasional midnight visit to cemeteries.

Kim is a college graduate of Saint Leo University with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology. She and her husband have three successful grown children and reside just outside of Atlanta, Georgia. Kim’s books can be purchased online at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, BAM, and Indie Bound. You can learn more about Kim and updates on new book releases and events by visiting her Official Author Website –  Author, Kim Carter.

About The Book and Rave Reviews:

A Practical Guide to Trusting the Mystery of Life

This book’s the REAL DEAL!

“Just as described, challenging and inspirational. With so much “new age wisdom” on the market, this one feels good and right to read the words of a true Zen Master and his pupil, knowing they’ve dedicated their lives to studying and imparting knowledge without it feeling like ZEN … Even as good or better reads as a Tommy Rosen’s offering! 

“Highly recommend it!


An Editorial Review That Sums Up SEEKER:

“Like the work I have done over many decades, this book helps people to find the true Self, be One with their Divine Nature, and be free to Be. It compassionately shows people how to turn within to uncover their own Shangri-La. It is a unique, extraordinary and extremely valuable work which I highly recommend to all spiritual seekers and those who want to find what is Eternal.”

~Ihaleakala Hew Len, author of Zero Limits, teacher of Ho’oponopono and former Chairman Emeritus of the Foundation of I.

Now on Holiday Sale for just $.99 CENTS!


Rising Wind: The Thunder Beings (The Rising Wind Series Book 1)  Ancient Ways: The Roots of Religion Paperback


About Her Amazing Ebooks:

Nominated For a “2017 Readers Choice Award and Winner of a Bronze Medal by Illumination Book Awards

“An amazing book that examines in-depth the Evolution and Relationship of Humanity and the core belief’s in just ‘One God” …

In order to enjoy this book
, you may have to suspend current beliefs, since some of the concepts may seem quite foreign at first. What if monotheism always existed, and revelations were given to all human forms. There are hints to that effect. We should not assume primitive peoples weren’t smart enough to grasp the concept of a single Creator!

Too often we tweak religion to reflect our personal thoughts rather than dealing directly with the Word of God.  Monotheism, today is represented by at least nine living faiths, yet praying to God alone is not enough, for many. Instead, we pray to Prophets, angels, saints, ancestors, deities, even the universe.

This creates a chain of “Paths” and “Ways” which become stained, over time, by human desires for control and material benefits. And as darkness and materialism overtake one Faith, another is born, through the intervention of the Holy Spirit, which is clothed in a different form, with a new name, and very familiar teachings.

Like the Tree of Life, monotheism can be visualized as a chain linking prehistory and history, entwined with human additions, wisps, and twists that produce an undulating, ultimate Yin and Yang. This constant interaction of complementary, as well as conflicting, forces and energies, exhibits both organic unity and dynamism-even war. Those who suspect there is a unified core of basic beliefs should enjoy Ancient Ways!

New Release EBook ~ RISING WIND: The Thunder Beings (Book One Series)

A businessman is assailed by dreams of a Thunderbird who needs his help, despite his strong denial of the Lakota Heritage.

To make things worse, he is told to find a woman he doesn’t know in a South American jungle to help him solve problems initiated by his former business partner, and aid the Thunder Being in the process.

With help from several Indigenous healers, Secora James and Gideon Yellow Thunder face hardship, sorrow, and death on their path to find out what the Thunderbird needs from them, and what she can give them in return. Together they find a giant native sloth and the source of slavery, abduction, and death on a volcano.

Together they face death to save Wakinyan Tanka, the great Thunderbird and bring greedy assassins to justice … “Fantastic Read with Native Flair and an action adventure like no other!” 


Hopefully, you will find precious gems to take with you and now ALL for just .99 Cents!  HAPPY NEW YEAR Reading! ****CAT*****
