Jana Clawson has a propensity for Chinese food, M & M’s,  chocolate chip cookies, and she deals with adversity with a wry sense of humor. She is caught up in a whirlwind known as Trevor Willis, the most eligible bachelor in Portland. He is perfect in every way, but will his secrets be too much for their relationship?

While Jana escapes to the Oregon Coast to make a decision about Trevor, a car accident stirs Jared Carpenter—a physical therapist with  kind Brown eyes who never turns down a homemade meal—into the mix. Unknown to Jana, events set in motion six years ago threaten everything she holds dear, and her life depends on one or both of these men. Combining suspense, intrigue, action, and understated humor, this book will keep you turning pages until the exciting conclusion. 

Born in Illinois, Donna Fuller has lived in a variety of places and currently resides in Butler, Pennsylvania. At times she feels like a ping-pong ball—bouncing from coast to coast and back again. Her grandchildren bring her the greatest joy. Donna has always been involved in writing, from journals to plays for Cub Scouts, to short stories for her children and as a reporter for a small newspaper. She has won awards for her writing and has taught at writing workshops and retreats. Donna is the co-founder of the annual OHPA Writer’s Retreat in Western Pennsylvania. She has published two novels: A Strand of Doubt and Code Name Scorpion.

A Strand of Doubt is a very amazing book that draws you in. The beginning chapters help to pull you towards Jana and have a feeling of standing next to her in the story. As she is trying to figure out everything she feels about Trevor she is pulled into a deeper mystery. Everything is not as it seems or how she thinks. While creating new friends and battling with an array of challenges and feelings. Jana makes new discoveries about herself as well as those a around her. 

I loved reading this book the Donna does and amazing job of connecting you to the main character Jana. As well as keeping you on the edge of your seat. As Jana is going through the many challenges you feel protective and all of the many emotions she feels. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves mystery and adventure. I would also recommend this book to anyone who maybe going through struggles of their own to find the patches they should take.

Trouble blows west

When Monique isn’t writing, you can find her playing taxi driver to one or more of her 12 children, plotting her next novel, scrapbooking, or being the “Mamarazzi” at any number of child-oriented events. 

Even though she realizes there will never be enough hours in any given day, Monique tries very hard to enjoy the journey that is her life. She shares it with a terrific husband, her dozen children, twelve grand-darlings, too many cats, and many real and imaginary friends. She is the author of several books in three series and hopes to write many more.

Putting her body in motion before her brain is in gear creates a mountain of problems for 12 year-old Ginnie West. She is certain that defending her twin brother, Toran, from the biggest bully in sixth grade was the right thing to do. But Ginnie couldn’t be more wrong.    
She quickly figures out that Toran doesn’t appreciate being rescued by a girl any better than Pierce likes being knocked down by one. When Pierce seeks revenge on Ginnie, Toran sets aside his anger and helps her plot a playback prank at Pierce’s house.  
Sadly, Ginnie learns that Pierce has a reason for being a bully when she sees his dad drop him to the floor like a ragdoll with one awful blow to the chest. Realizing he's a boy in big trouble, Ginnie switches gears and decides to be his ally, even if he won’t let her be his friend.

What reviewers are saying about this book:
*Like Anne of "Anne of Green Gables," Ginnie is a character you can't help but love.

*I couldn't put these books down. I was not only entertained, but inspired.

* An excellent book that deals with the sensitive topics of bullying, abuse and forgiveness. It is action packed and full of raw emotions.

*Bucheger does an amazing job of writing this story but without giving a cookie cutter answer to the problems Ginnie faces.

Mr. Reed reminded her of an eagle sizing up a tasty little mouse. “How do you think you could’ve handled this situation differently, Miss West?”

Wishing she could disappear into the seat, Ginnie shrugged instead. “I’m not sure. He’s bigger than my brother and me. I didn’t feel like I had a choice.”

“You always have a choice. Next time, use your words, and get a teacher.”

Fighting the urge to roll her eyes at the lameness of that advice, she turned her head and mumbled, “Oh, that’ll help. But just ’til we get off school grounds.”

“What was that?” Mr. Reed’s eyebrows arched like an owl’s.

She didn’t think he really wanted an answer and she surely didn’t want to give one.

In life we are blessed to have those who we love. Those we depend on. Those whose very existence proved to help to shape and form us into the very person we are. But what happens when you lose someone whose light, love, and strength brought so much significance and guidance to your life? How do families navigate through the pain of losing a mentor, mother, wife, and friend? What happens as the family dynamics begin to change and shift? After our lives are turned upside down do we ever find ourselves back to a new normal? What She Left Behind is a deep emotional journey that takes you into the abyss of love and loss. It is a memoir of a fight with grief. It takes you down a winding personal account of tragic events and one woman's struggle to find who she really is without the love and strength of her mother. Caught between holding on and letting go, she attempts to weed through the pain and trails that the family faces. This is a story about finding our way out of the depths of heartache and the redemptive way we find ourselves back home.

They thought the episode with their cousin to the east, Lady Bloodstein, was over. They thought it was something to laugh about at the grand table in fond nostalgia. But they were wrong. They were so wrong. And Castle Blanchefort has fallen!

Lord Kabyl has lost everything: his wife, his kin, his family fortune, and his home. Castle Blanchefort, once a safe haven, is overrun with enemies seeking his blood.

In what follows, he must join forces with ancient enemies and with people who do not exist. He must treat with sinister, possibly untrustworthy gods and barter away his soul for urgently needed arcane help or face certain death at the hands of forgotten tyrants and their machinations from a bygone age.

And, how can a strange science known as Mentralysis, practiced in secret in the hidden places of the League, hold the key to ultimate victory?

What should have been obvious to Lord Kabyl from the start, at last, becomes crystal clear: Foolish is he who dares possess the Ultimate Object, for misery shall be his only reward.

An epic fantasy of forbidden romance that chronicles the coming of age of a princess who is possessed by the Snow Queen and fated to rule her kingdom with a strong hand and icy heart.

As a child, Princess Freyja looked into the Snow Queen’s cursed mirror - and was changed.

Now an aloof and difficult young woman with a wit as sharp as her tongue, the future monarch is in need of a tutor. And Ambrose, a failed poet, is in need of a teaching position. He just never suspected how dangerous the extracurricular activities would be!

Soon, Ambrose finds himself on a grand adventure fighting to save the vexing but alluring princess from the court occult conspiracies that have targeted her. He is opposed not only by sorcerers and the evil Snow Queen, but also the icy royal damsel who holds his heart.

Will Ambrose’s love cause Freyja to thaw…or will she put him in the deep freeze instead?

Sensuous, suspenseful, supernatural and filled with witty banter, this romantic fantasy will both turn up the heat and leave you thoroughly frost smitten!

A 2019 Critters Readers Poll top ten finalist in the category of Science-Fiction and Fantasy.

The price of this book as been steeply discounted on Amazon for this event! Check it out!   

Micah S. Harris is the Author of the epic fantasy romance Portrait of a Snow Queen, which took third place in the category of science fiction and fantasy in the Critters Readers Poll.  Strong female protagonists and banter are trademarks of his work. Portrait of a Snow Queen is no exception and is recommended for older fans of Frozen and lovers of the witty verbal sparring in The Princess Bride.

He won the 2016 Pulp Ark Award for best novel for Ravenwood, The stepson of Mystery: Return of the Dugpa. He is also the Author - Along with artist Michael Gaydos (Marvel’s Jessica Jones) - of the graphic novel Heaven’s War, a historical fantasy pitting the Oxford Inklings against Aleister Crowley.

His lifelong love of movies also influences his fiction, whether a fairy tale retelling, horror story or paranormal mystery. He taught film on a collegiate level and has chronicled, both in print and via podcast, fascination lost genre gems.

This is a very exciting book that pulls you in. It keeps you wondering what will happen next. 
As a young tutor is given a new pupil that he never excepted. The story he is told of what has happened is beyond what he can possibly believe fully. Micah S Harris does a really good of writing in a way that makes it hard for you to put the book down. 

1. How did you come up with the title?

Boy, the title was tough. I went through several things like “Frost Smitten” or “Defrosting the Snow Queen.” But I was reminded that there is such a thing as a literary portrait, as in Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Portrait of a Lady. And the cover art by Aaron Lopresti looks like Freyja is sitting for a portrait, so that worked out great.

2. Name one entity that you feel supported you outside of a family member?

I have to name three. Three of my beta-readers, Tabitha Miller, Sharon Ceres, and  Barbara Sobczyńska fell in love with the characters and their world and were always excited to find out what happened next – and they read the even longer version! I was able to meet with Tabitha and Sharon, and that kind of human connection through a process that is usually solitary was invaluable and removed me from the vacuum of creativity.

3. If you could travel anywhere in the world for thirty days and just kick back and relax, where would you go, would you take anyone with you and why would you chose this vacation spot to go?

The United Kingdom, definitely. I’d love to see the Scottish Highlands, and I’m a longtime Anglophile. I love British literature, the history of the island and the artifacts that have been left there. The pop music that has come out of England is some of the greatest, from the Beatles to Prog Rock artists.

4. What is your favorite late-night snack?

Do I have to pick just one? Just as long as there’s a lot of it!

5. Where do you see yourself in 5-10 years?

Ideally, having established a solid fan base and finally written one of the licensed properties of which I’ve long been a fan. 

6. Tell us 5 random things about yourself.

● When I was small, my teddy bear named Boo-Boo ran away from home in an act of tough love to get me to stop sucking my thumb. 
● I once had a Venus flytrap as a pet.
● My mom always encouraged my love of reading. She went beyond the call of duty of bringing me books from the library. So, if I read about a bear having a pancake party or a kid adopting a pet spider, she accommodated me in having my own.
● I was friends with the late Verne Langdon, make-up man on the original Planet of the Apes movies and the one who cast the foam rubber for the Pillsbury Doughboy when he was a stop-motion puppet.
● I used to play guitar, and was in a high school cover band.

7. What was the most surprising part of writing this book?

How the characters and their world grew. If Beta Readers were enthusiastic about a minor character, they inspired me to do more with that character. Thus, Freyja’s reclusive sister Asa and the former dancing polar bear, Theodyn, got spotlighted more than they would have. 

One character who revealed herself to me and got a much meatier part was Emily, the Reverend’s wife. She was off to the side for a long time, and then I realized, “What if…” And when she stepped into the limelight and started really talking, she started writing herself, and I have been smitten with her ever since.
