Astraea Press Book Club

Hello everyone!

I hope all is well with you! I’ve just learned something exciting and I wanted to share it with you right away.

Astraea Press, my publisher, has just started something new. They’ve organized a Book Club.

Now the purpose of this Book Club is to bring Readers and Authors together.  I know, you’re asking, how are they going to do that?

Well, here’s the answer, they’ve created a Facebook group called, yes you guessed it, “The Astraea Press Book Club”.

The exciting thing about this is that each month they’re giving one book away FREE for the entire month. Wow! How cool is that!  Wait there’s more…

At the end of the month readers and reviewers can chat with the author and get the inside scoop on a lot of things, like the writing process, what they do when they get writer’s block, where they get their characters, etc.

I know what you’re thinking…how do I join. Well, I’m here to tell you that you can join by clicking on this link!

https://www.facebook.com/groups/319805601428268/

There are books from all genres, Young Adult and Romance to name a few. So check it out, if you like free books and chatting with authors. J

It’s a great way to stock up on your summer reads! J

How to get your Child interested in Reading

Hello everyone! I hope all is well with you. Last week was my blog tour and it was exciting. I learned a lot and I’m looking forward to my next one. Thanks to all the bloggers who participated and all the wonderful people who left comments.

This week I want to talk about how to get your child interested in reading. When both my kids were babies I started the habit of reading to them before bedtime. I would read the fun nursery rhymes and the cadence of the rhyme would lull them into sleep mode.

I continued this pattern and still do it today, but now I let them pick the books they want to read. It’s amazing what they’re interested in! They’re interests range from the weather, to spiders…and even Transformers. J

Now, I can handle the weather and even spiders, but Transformers? Give me a break! J But because my sons were interested I bought them some Transformer books and I’ve got to say I’ve had to read them a million times.

I know everything about the Decepticons and the Autobots and the fall of Cybertron. Do I really care about these things? Not one wit, but my children do and if it keeps them reading I’m all for it. And here’s the thing my youngest was reading to himself before he started school. I attribute this to his strong drive to learn but also to the Transformers that became his passion during this phase of his life.

So when you’re trying to get your children interested in reading, pay attention to what their interests are. They’ll enjoy reading more if they’re reading a book that they’re interested in. You, on the other hand, may be sick of the topic. But you’ll have to pretend that it’s the most exciting topic in the world, because they are seeking your approval. J   And what better way to build self esteem in your child? Giving them approval or permission to enjoy they’re own interests.

Treasured Tales for Young Adults

The Super Spies and the Cat Lady Killer by Lisa Orchard

Book description (from Goodreads) –

This book opens in a small town in Michigan where fifteen-year-old Sarah Cole is stuck spending the summer at her Aunt and Uncle’s with her sister, Lacey.

One of the officers investigating the crime believes the girls are responsible for her death.

Fearing that this officer will frame them for the murder, the girls organize their own detective squad. They become the Super Spies and start their own fact-finding mission. The Super Spies can’t understand why anyone would want to murder the “Cat Lady” until they start digging into her past and discover a horrible crime that happened thirty years ago.

They uncover a connection between the two…
