I've been sitting on this book since 2020
It feels so good to finally have it released! I'm so excited to see where this series takes me, and I hope you are too. The second book will be coming out next month, so watch out for it! You can already preorder it on Amazon and Smashwords if you can't wait.
This book is short but very well written. It had me on the edge of my seat at every turn, and my brain was constantly doing its best to guess what would happen next. It definitely gives me some Dr. Who vibes (and I can't help but picture the Silence when I think about the Shadow Men, but that's besides the point), and reminded me a bit of The Time Traveler's Wife (the show, not the movie).
I absolutely love the main character. She has her flaws but she's well-rounded, smart, and strong. Not to mention Mr. Reese, who is wonderful in his own ways, too.
I am a huge fan of the way Grayson Scott writes. His stories take you to a whole other world and the emotions are almost tangible as the words seem to lift off the page and become a part of you. I'm looking forward to the next installment in this series. It has a strong premise, and is a concept we're familiar with, but has a unique, insatiable spin to it, and I can't wait for more.
Humanity's fate hangs in the balance in a world where civilization teeters on the brink of collapse. Amidst the chaos, a cryptic enigma emerges, unveiling the assault on the very fabric of time itself. Embark on a breathtaking journey through the annals of history, the present's uncertainties, and the mysteries of the future, as our The Curator battles to save humanity and the timeline that binds us all.
This is episode one of an exciting new time traveling novella series from Grayson Scott with multiple episodes each year. This special edition includes the first chapter of Episode Two: A World Without Feather
Reader beware, you're in for a scare--but that's only if you're unwilling to face your flaws, fears, and former fabrications.
This book takes an aggressive, look-at-yourself-completely approach. If you aren't ready to be comepletely honest with yourself, this will definitely heat your seat. But If you take a step back and breathe, you'll see that Alex Monaco isn't yelling at you or pointing out your flaws because he's being mean--he's doing it because he honestly cares.
As the book goes on, Alex gives exceptional advice on how to make the most out of your life, no matter what your goal is. No where in here does he let you weasel away from addressing the problem: you and your outlook on life.
"[Some people] would want Alex Monaco to part the ocean of problems with his bare hands (like God parted the Red Sea). But why should I do that if you have arms and can swim?"
The outcome of your life comes down to your mind and discipline, and this book has wonderful pointers and helpful advice on how to fix that, and the author does NOT sugar coat anything, which, in my opinion, is desperately needed now adays.
If you're looking to change your life and work on yourself without unnecessary fluff or words of manipulation, this is the book for you. A great read all in all.

I’m a big fan of loving families and books that show children are smarter than the world makes them out to be, and this is definitely one of them. This is a wonderful example of someone who’s made wrong decisions in the past but is working hard to put it behind her and keep moving forward. She loves her children and keeps her composure even when small town gossip tries to tear her down.
I almost wish this book was a little longer, going more in-depth with Maria’s thoughts and emotions. I also wish there was a bit more build-up to the romance. Knowing the men in her past, I was kind of wigged out with how possessive Jake became because I felt like it kind of aggressive with how fast-paced the book was. That being said, he’s really good for her and he’s really good for the kids.
That being said, I really enjoyed this book and it was written really well. I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a quick romance that’ll have your heart soaring with some thrilling aspects as the past collides with the present.
Maria Jackson, a single mom of two kids running from her worst nightmare, ends up back in her hometown, where she encounters Jacob Smith, her middle school crush. It wasn't easy living next door to each other, but headstrong Maria found it harder not to fall in love with Jacob. Can she let go of her fears and take a leap of faith? Find out in this story of faith, hope, and love.
I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. It has heart, lessons, action, and so much lore. I thoroughly loved being in this world and experiencing through a group of friends who don’t know really anything about it. Every twist was very well executed and immersed me into the world.
It reminded me a lot of what I’ve seen of the Shannarah Chronicles for some reason, and that’s a good thing since I enjoyed it very much.
The characters are wonderful and unique and I was rooting for them. When someone would meet an untimely demise or get left behind, I found myself saying, “No!”
My favorite thing about this book were the fight scenes. The way the author made them feel alive in their descriptions is something I’ve rarely seen before, and it was very much appreciated. The creativity is insurmountable and I feel like I’m talking in circles because of how much I loved it.
The ending was great, and I’m really excited for the next book. The author is amazing at character creation, even with the villains, and I commend them for that.
All in all, I highly recommend this book for anyone looking for a grand, action-packed fantasy that will keep you on the edge of your seat until it’s final page.
Soul shards. Mysterious crystals that each grant their holder a unique supernatural ability. From the power to lock reality in a single moment, to be able to raise an entire country into the sky. Whoever holds these shards command obedience. These shards have won wars. These shards have made kings.
Ember never gave these things much thought. Even though her people had long been conquered by the Soveterra, and the village where she was raised was forced to forge weapons for his army, Ember had never seen true conflict. Until the day the guardian of her village planned to execute her friend. That day she witnessed the terrifying capabilities of a soul shard, but also, she realized there was something inside her: a power that awakened when she confronted the guardian.
How could she produce the same magic the soul shards conjure? For answers, Ember would escape her village in search of a secret organization that might be able to help her understand. But what she finds on her path are deadly foes, a prophecy of a liberator, and a plan that threatens all of life itself, to which she will realize: her new power may be the only thing that can save the world from falling into oblivion.
Review: Living Green and the smoke: a story about air pollution, global warming and team work by Florian Bushy
This book is really cute and informative. Honestly, the way the story was written, it keeps you on your toes as the characters try to protect their home from the smoke. The characters are adorable and memorable, and the art is perfect for this tale.
I honestly believe any child would enjoy this book. The images are cute and filled with movement, and the story is simple and understandable. Pollution is a big topic, and this book is a great spring-board to talk to you child about it.
At the beginning of time, planet Earth was so new, pure, and clean. This allowed all the plants to walk around like people! If you listened carefully you could even hear their hearts beating!
One day, when our heroes Mrs Florence and Mr Florian met for their daily chat, the forest was dark, hot and full of smoke and black dust.
Where was that pollution coming from?
With friendship, cooperation and working as a team, the trees, plants and flowers solved the problem and saved the pure planet Earth from the greenhouse effect.
Review: Living Green and the spell: the day the plants stood still, but they are still alive by Florian Bushy
This book is creative, cute, and enjoyable. I gave it 4.5 because I think it could go a little deeper or have some sort of lesson involved, especially since the plants determine humans in the future won't hate plants, even though the images they're shown are of humans destroying or mucking up the environment. It has a lot of potential, I just wish there was more of a lesson involved, espeically since it's a kids book.
In the beginning of time on planet Earth, trees, flowers, bushes and all other plants could walk, talk and live a happy life. One day, a visitor came to Earth with the intention of dominating the plants. Since then, the plants can no longer move. However, they are still alive!
What would have happened that day?
This book is part of the "Living Green" series, picture books for children that promote environmental awareness, respect and friendship.
Do you ever look at an item and wonder what stories it could tell if it could talk? This sword can’t talk, but the things it’s seen… could literally fill a book.
The characters were well-rounded and the stories are captivating and creative. It gives me almost a D&D feel—which is great! Each storyline is easy to follow and each one gets a chance to breathe and submerge you into this fantastical world.
I really enjoyed the lizard species and everything associated with them. The way their system is combat-based was really interesting and I rather enjoyed it.
All in all, you won’t be disappointed by giving this book a read. I loved it. Five stars.
The Beastmaster Sword was originally crafted in 1981 by the dangerous and creative mind of legendary sword and knife maker Victor Anselmo. In 2015, John Anselmo brought Anselmo Knives and his father’s masterpiece back to life for a whole new generation to marvel and admire.
What you are about to read has been years in the making. We at Anselmo Knives, along with The Write Stuff Publishing House, hope our dedication to the legacy of Victor Anselmo and this phenomenal weapon comes across in the following pages and that you enjoy these new tales of fantasy adventure as much as you did the original.
To fans of the original film- this is not a continuation of that tale. That is not our tale to tell. This is what came before. Long before. We understand that nothing will ever take the place in your heart of your first introduction to the Beastmaster Sword © ®, but we hope these new stories fascinate, thrill, inspire, and most of all, entertain you.
Cute and a tad absurd (in a good way), this book shows any day can be good, even days deemed terrible--like Mondays. The day is definitely what you make it!
Some of the things that happen to make him laugh are kind of odd, but it's a kids book, and I can see kids giggling at finding socks in a cereal box instead of cereal, or a sign sticking to a dog. It's a cute and imaginitive story, and it got a chuckle or two out of me.
Follow Bennie as he chases away his Monday blues and embraces some humor in this fun, new book, What are Mondays good for, Anyway?
Bennie hates Mondays. Mondays mean no more watching cartoons or eating chocolate-chip pancakes. Mondays mean only work and no play.
As another Monday arrives and the day starts going downhill, Bennie realizes that if he allows it, belly laughs can happen on even the most dreaded weekday of all.
What Are Mondays Good For, Anyway? is a heartwarming picture book that helps teachers promote a growth mindset, and parents to encourage a supportive learning environment for young school-aged children who are dealing with back-to-school jitters.
This book is a valuable addition to any children’s book collection or elementary school library.
This book is an absolute gem. I was fully invested in every moment, and found myself in tears when it ended--but good tears. The characters were real and vibrant, and every sentence touched my heart in a way that made me feel everything they were going through.
The author does such an amazing job at letting these characters breathe and is astute in putting us in the depths of their minds. My heart ached when theirs broke, and my spirits soared when they smiled. By no means is this a sad story. It's about a father who would do anything for his son, no matter what.
Abuse is something overlooked in relationships when it's happening to men. We live in a world where men are told to suck it up. They're "men". If they let a woman hurt them, then they're less of a man and probably deserved it. But how dare we say that to them and turn right around and embrace women who lie about it. Abuse is abuse, no matter which side it's from.
I absolutely love this book. The hardships Alan and his father went through were terrible, but the happiness, the joy between the moments of darkness... that's what made me love this story. It's the light that fills their darkness that gives this book meaning.
I highly recommend this read for anyone. Everyone. This is the kind of book that deserves every eye to read it. This book is a treasure amidst rubble, and I hope you decide to love it not for its shimmer, but for its worth.
Mark Soderlind has lived a life unremarkable. Existing one day at a time, only hoping to stay out of the way of those society considers important, worthy, and necessary.

The two of them have managed to build a small world together where they look out for each other as only a father and son can.
However, genius is often found in the quietest and most unexpected places. When Alan’s new teacher discovers a secret that Alan has been hiding from everyone, Mark and Alan’s sheltered world is shattered. Suddenly faced with the burden of knowing his son is anything but unremarkable, Mark must learn to move beyond the mistakes and failures of his past before they his son's future.
Review: The Scars of Abuse: A Tale of Tragedy and Hope (Tales from the Unfortunate Series) by DC Publishing
This story is really uplifting and I believe could help a lot of people. It's sincere and unapologetic, and shows the inner workings of an abusive, deteriorating relationship. This is definitely a testament to how we can keep moving, even when we're at our lowest, and can emerge from even the depths of the darkest void.
Scars of Abuse: A Tale of Tragedy and Hope
She was standing on a carpet of gold, every desire was at her feet,
Her life was rose-colored; full of beauty, love, and dreams!
But the world it turns out, hides its terrible ways.
Why everything pleasant, must leave a bitter aftertaste?
Alicia was bestowed a worldly appeal, and a charismatic man named Paul was the object of her affection. The world was benevolent, and it married her off to the man of her dreams. However, what the world had in store for her, was not a boon but rather a lesson in the harsh realities of existence. As years passed in marriage, the man she loved became unrecognizable. He was cruel to her and their children. His words pierced her heart and soul until she was completely empty, and then followed rough slaps.
Smiles on the outside, hide the chaos burning within
A fire set upon her, by the embers of a lover’s sin
Alicia’s survival story, though, was far from over. She sets off on a quest to discover her strength, determined to triumph over the obstacles abuse has placed in her path and recover her life from the wreck. With the help of her loved ones, Alicia musters the courage to confront her abuser and start the healing process.
Can Alicia free herself from the Scars of her Abuse and discover self-love again? Read and appreciate the answer to this question as it unfolds in this tragic yet inspiring urban fiction domestic abuse novel for young adults.
Always remember that even in the darkest of moments, hope is never lost.
Yes, abuse leaves scars, but losing yourself doesn’t have to be the cost.

This inspirational book is a part of our mission to spread awareness about domestic abuse. Scars of Abuse is a sobering reminder that the victim's road of survival and healing is not as easy as it may appear, even after the abusive circumstances have passed.

I'm at a loss for words. My heart aches for the couple's loss and struggles. I'm so glad it's gradually getting better, but my heart goes out to them and I really, really hope the sun is right around the corner.
I feel so angry about the situations the government's placed upon the couple. And honestly, I commend them for finding the silver lining and staying positive. A lot of people aren't able to do that, and they're filled with anger and resentment, but I can feel the love they have for their family, and I am rooting for them in all their future endeavors.
A Single Mother Shares Her Experience with Domestic & Substance Abuse
“In the game of life, survival is only part of the battle.”—Gad Saad
“Chasing the Dark” is an impactful and honest addition to the long list of addiction recovery books. Joleen and Justin weave a dual narrative to share their life stories starting from childhood and through years of abuse and trauma until they met each other at Joleen’s workplace by a fated chance.
In “Chasing the Dark,” Joleen shares how she became a teenage mother, got tangled up with a drug dealer, and survived an abusive marriage with a U.S. veteran, only to fall in love with another. In a parallel narrative, Justin shares how despite the horrific nature of his Navy career, he had managed to come out of it with his sanity intact…mostly.
The couple is now trying to save Joleen’s youngest daughter from the same fate as her mother and is taking her grandson’s custody for the family’s benefit.
Read Chasing the Dark:
One word: riveting.
This book had me on the edge of my seat. Every moment was just as intriguing as the next as the plot seemed to thicken and expand the deeper you got into the story. I’m not sure if I’ve ever picked up a historical fiction novel, but I’m so glad this one crossed my path.
The attention to detail is amazing, and the scenes that involved conflict were very well done. At times, I found myself holding my breath, rooting for Fabriciano, especially as the book wrapped up and I was getting close to the end. I knew it was coming, but I wasn’t ready for it. I didn’t want to say goodbye to these characters yet, but all good things must come to an end.
The political intrigue was something I didn’t know I enjoyed so much. There are so many moving parts in this story, and the fact that it’s tied in with history has me just over the moon—especially as someone who lives in Texas. I was always that student that couldn’t remember history dates and whatnot for the life of her, but I’ve found that books like this, books that give history life, really help it stick in my mind.
All in all, this book is absolutely amazing. I recommend this to anyone who wants a rich, gripping story that you simply cannot put down. The descriptions are exceptional, and the images placed within the text add so much to the story itself. I also can’t forget to mention the realistic, three-dimensional characters you come to know and love.
I highly, highly recommend this book. You will not regret a single moment.
The untold story fictionalized around real events from the time of 1914-1919 as to why the U.S, invaded Mexico and how Germany manipulated the southern border to attempt to keep the United States out of World War One.
