Dregs by Suzanne Hession

(5 out of 5 Stars – 12 Customer Reviews)    Price: $12.95

King Halvar is ill and childless, so he visits the village orphanage, narrowing his search for a suitable replacement to the throne to two young brothers, Silas and Dregz. Halvar knows the new king must be strong, resilient, determined, and most of all, honest. Dregz wins the competition, and his brother Silas, in a fit of jealousy, has him banished to the Island of Dregs, warning the people that “only the dregs of the earth live there!”

But Silas’s actions have dire consequences. Dregz’s son Dreck is determined to uncover the secret his father has kept for years, and as he sets out to save the people who once looked down upon him and his family, he finds himself in a terrifying chain of events. Will he be able to save Silas’s daughter, Princess Elle? And can he defeat Nazaar–the slithery stranger who seems to hold such power over them all?

Outskirts Press Presents DONNA GIBBS CSJ, author of THE SEAMLESS UNIVERSE: A DISCOVERY GUIDE THROUGH OUR GREAT HERITAGE

Author DONNA GIBBS CSJ is taking her latest book, THE SEAMLESS UNIVERSE: A DISCOVERY GUIDE THROUGH OUR GREAT HERITAGE on tour – a Virtual Book Tour, that is, with Outskirts Press! Technology has created a wide variety of ways to reach audiences all over the world. All it takes is a little thinking outside the box, and nowadays you can market a self-published book in a variety of affordable and impactful ways. Virtual book tours, for example, are a great way to connect with readers from all corners of the globe, all from the comfort of your own home. Join DONNA GIBBS CSJ and THE SEAMLESS UNIVERSE: A DISCOVERY GUIDE THROUGH OUR GREAT HERITAGE as they appear in features and interviews (such as the one below) in the weeks and months ahead!


Luckily for us, DONNA GIBBS CSJ was kind enough to answer a few questions as the tour was getting started so that we can give you a sneak peek into the mind of the creator of THE SEAMLESS UNIVERSE: A DISCOVERY GUIDE THROUGH OUR GREAT HERITAGE.

OP: Tell us a little bit about THE SEAMLESS UNIVERSE: A DISCOVERY GUIDE THROUGH OUR GREAT HERITAGE. What is it about?

DONNA: It is an inspiring origin story that promotes a healthy Earth/Human relationship through poetic narrative, vivid illustration, and sacred experiences.

OP: Why did you decide to write this story?

DONNA: In 2010, I switched from teaching one grade level to teaching the entire elementary school science program. I created this version of the emerging Universe story to help ground, increase meaning and connect the Kindergarten through eighth grade curriculum.

Teaching science based knowledge and science skills develop in my students the ability to influence everything that happens to living Earth. I believe a “planetary wisdom” to help them form an “Earth-identity” would be beneficial as they learned the standard Science curriculum

OP: What types of readers would be interested in this story?

DONNA: I wrote it in a format that would enable a young reader to grow with the story. Parts of the narrative are for reading aloud to the youngest and as the child grows, they learn more and begin to experience their personal connection with Earth.

OP: What is special about your book?

DONNA: It has evolved from my own advanced studies in Child Development, Earth Literacy and Art Therapy.
I myself engage in the experiences as they open an ever-new wonder and appreciation for all that is.

OP: Have you published any other books? Do you plan to publish more?

DONNA: Yes, The Quilter and the Quail is a true story about a woman who raised two wild quail. It follows their life in juxtaposition with the life of the wild quail. As the babies grow, the reader begins to understand how humanity links with wild nature.

OP: What differentiates it from other books in the same category?

DONNA: There are very few books in this category. Surprisingly, adults seem to enjoy this book as much as the child and glean a new appreciation for our place in the Earth community.

OP: How can someone learn more about your book or purchase it?

DONNA: Any questions about these books can be sent directly to me: seamlessuniverse@yahoo.com
Both books are available from Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Bulk orders can be made through me and/or Outskirts Press.

OP: Thanks for your time, DONNA! We look forward to learning more about you as you visit other bloggers!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Donna Gibbs CSJ has taught for thirty years in the elementary classroom. She has a degree in child development and Earth literacy and a master’s in art therapy. She gives workshops and lectures that focus on deepening our connection with the universe.

Now available on Amazon.com!

Hill Town by D.S. Walsh

(4.5 out of 5 Stars – 5 Customer Reviews)    Price: $13.95 PB $26.95 HB

Lying in bed, I put in a request for sweet dreams for my girls, adding a mention of one for me.

Who’d of thought I would receive such a gift.

Waking this morning, I felt a sense of could be, still far removed from the reality of the day. Curious how hard it is to hang on to such things. You would think that all of us would long for the same thing, wanting only to get along and to make a difference. What poison I wonder is behind the motive of anything else?
