Cover Designer: Wicked by Design
Charlie, Veronica, and George Donner were not ordinary kids. How could they be with a father who creates out of the world inventions?
Until one day, they go from not so ordinary, to extraordinary.
Their dad has always dreamed of inventing a time machine. Not only because it had never been done, but because he’d lost two people in time who meant the world to him — his father and his wife.
After finally completing the impossible, his kids accidently transported themselves back in time without their dad knowing.
Finding themselves in a world that was once lost, they must figure out a way to go back before it’s too late. But nothing is ever as easy as it seems. It’s a good thing they find help in the most unexpected places.
Can they make it back home or will they be lost in time forever?
Shelly Bushkofsky is a mother of three; two boys and a girl. She’s an author of romance, but when her oldest son, Marcus, told her that he wanted to be an author just like her, and that he had an idea for a book, she dived right in to the world of children’s books. Although this story was all his!
She enjoys writing, reading, and spending as much time with family and friends as possible.
Marcus Evans is eleven years old and hopes to one day be a bestselling author. But he also dreams of traveling the world as an anthropologist. He enjoys reading and writing, and also has a love of baseball and fishing.

Charlie, Veronica, and George Donner lived with their dad, Jimmy Donner, in an old house in the small town of Charsonville, Iowa. Their mother died a long time ago, but their dad never really talked about how. Charlie used to ask about her a lot, but his dad would get angry and tell him to stop asking. She was gone, and that was all there was to know. Charlie didn’t like that answer, but maybe his dad was right, and he shouldn’t ask about things he couldn’t change.
The kids didn’t have much. Their family didn’t have a nice car, nice house, or even a computer with Internet connection, but they thought they had something even better—their dad.
Mr. Donner was a scientist who invented all kinds of awesome things, like a machine that put your shoes on for you, and a robot that would make your bed. He wasn’t famous for his inventions, and the people around town thought he was crazy, but his kids thought the world of him. They loved everything he invented and were always up for testing them out—when their dad let them, that is.
Mr. Donner thought of himself as a man who could do anything, as long as he had the imagination to think it and the will to build it. But there was one thing he’d been trying to make his entire life that he just couldn’t get right: a time machine.
He was about ready to give up when he had a major breakthrough, and was able to transport an apple back in time. At least, he was pretty sure that was where it went. There was really no way to know for sure since all the other times he’d tried, the apple had turned into applesauce, or caught on fire.
Even if it did travel back in time, he couldn’t be sure that it actually arrived to the destination he set. All he knew was that it was no longer where it had been. It was gone, and not in a destroyed sort of way.
Mr. Donner was obsessed with dinosaurs, and wanted to build the time machine to try to save them; maybe even bring one back. He was really hoping that the apple was now sitting in front of a dinosaur, maybe even giving them a strange new snack.
Running downstairs, he grabbed his jacket and keys, telling the kids he’d be back soon. He had to get the Dean of the University right away to tell him what he had done, what he had finally accomplished.
“I’ll be back soon, kids. Don’t answer the door if anyone knocks. Don’t go outside, and do not go into my office,” Mr. Donner told them sternly before running out the door.
The kids sat on the couch for a few seconds, just looking at each other. Their dad had never said that his office and laboratory was off-limits before, at least not that they could remember. What did he have in there now that would be so important that he’d warn them off?
Unable to hold it in any longer, Charlie smiled mischievously at his little brother and sister. “Let’s go see what Dad invented,” he said, standing from the couch. He knew that that was what his dad was hiding—an invention. There was nothing else that would be worth hiding. His dad knew that they wouldn’t care about any special papers, and would get bored quickly, so a new invention was the only thing he could think of.
Unless, of course, his dad bought them all a new toy to play with and was just hiding it in there, but a new invention was more likely.
“But he said don’t go in there,” Veronica said as she stood to follow her two brothers.
“Is he here?” Charlie asked. When no one answered him, he said, “He won’t know.” Then, with a Cheshire smile, he ran up the stairs, his brother and sister following close behind him.
At the top, they stopped outside of their dad’s office door. They knew it wasn’t locked because their dad trusted them, which had Charlie feeling a little bad about disobeying. However, with the hopes of a cool invention that must be behind the door, he just couldn’t help himself. Maybe his dad was just playing around anyway. Either way, he would never know unless he saw it for himself.
Slowly opening the door, all three of them poked their heads inside.
“What’s that?” George whispered.
“It looks like a photo booth,” Veronica replied.
“No, it’s not a photo booth,” Charlie said with a disbelieving look. “It’s a time machine.”
He’d heard his dad talk about building a time machine as far back as he could remember, but he never thought it was possible. Going back in time wasn’t something that could happen. That stuff was only in tall tales, not real life. But now, what he believed to only be real in fairytales was standing right in front of him.
The only question now was, did it actually work? Or was it one of his dad’s failed attempts at a dream?

The Librarian excerpt
© Christy Sloat
I bent down on my hands and knees and
felt along the floor hoping not to touch anything gross. My hands grazed
something odd. I felt along its edges. It was hard and didn’t seem to belong
there. Now my curiosity had me crouching in the dark trying to figure out what
this was. Finally I found the flashlight and clicked it on. Focusing the light,
I saw the odd thing sticking up like a broken piano key. It was a floorboard
upended. I pushed it to get it back into place, but all that did was make it
fly up further and then completely out of the floor.
“Well, that’s just great,” I told
I was here in the dark talking to
myself. I dared to take a look into the floor, hoping not to find a rat family
living inside or a web housing a large spider. I did find something, but it
wasn’t sinister; it was a set of books in a case covered in plastic wrap. Reaching
in, I pulled them out. The dust on it was at least three inches thick. This
must be the special book collection Gram told me to read and to keep safe.
Anything that was precious to her, she hid—like the money I found pinned to her
clothing in her closet, or the other jewelry she had taped to the back of her
I brushed the dust off and opened the
plastic to find four books inside. They were pretty good in size and looked to
be in great condition. They didn’t have traditional covers that you’d see in a
bookstore. Instead they were covered in a thick material to keep the books
clean and the binding solid. I pulled the first book from the case and placed
the others back into the hole. Covering it back with the loose board was easier
than taking it out. I held the book close, and instead of going upstairs I went
to my book nook. I had just washed the blankets the day before. Cozied up in
the nook, I stared out the window one last time before opening the book. I
decided I would only read for a little while before going up to bed. Gram did want me to read them after all.
I opened the first page to the title
page; it was blank. I flipped the page and snuggled deeper into the blankets
preparing to read the first chapter and that’s when things changed. 


About Christy: 
I am Southern California native, now
living in New Jersey! How did that happen? I am married and

had a passion for books since I was a little girl and an imagination for

A lost ancient civilization and the tomb of a legendary king lie buried beneath centuries of ash on the volcanic planet Thror, but that’s not the only reason sixteen-year-old Carter has tricked her Archaeology of Outer Space class into coming here. Her best friend Conrad has just disappeared on a trip to Thror, leaving behind little more than a broken vintage camera. The strange and disturbing photographs she manages to extract make her suspect Conrad’s disappearance is somehow connected to the hidden tomb of the last king of Thror.

Unfortunately, the ludicrously over-friendly ‘Furry Giants’ who have taken over the planet’s barren surface would rather offer her cheap souvenirs than answers, and the local officials insist they have no record of Conrad’s existence. Inspired by fear for Conrad’s life and the chance to make the greatest archaeological discovery of the century, Carter and her friends follow Conrad’s footsteps deep into the mountains of Thror’s forbidden Black Zone and launch an illicit excavation.

Coded messages, stunning ancient ruins, and clues left by Conrad himself begin to surface as the young archaeologists fall victim to an alarming series of accidents staged by the increasingly hostile Furry Giants. Piecing together a history of dictatorship, terrorism and disguise, Carter glimpses the horrors beyond Thror’s flamboyant façade and startling revelations about the friend she thought she knew. The masks of Thror hide devastating secrets, and the golden tomb buried deep in the frozen core may claim the lives of everyone she loves.

Twenty-five years ago, the venomous Queen Avoria was banished from the enchanted realms of Florindale and sentenced to spend eternity inside a cursed mirror.

After a seemingly endless tumble through the mirror’s abyss, Avoria awakens in a gloomy metropolis in the darkest corner of Wonderland. There she meets the shrewd King of Hearts, Cornelius Redding, and the two strike a turbulent alliance. As Avoria helps Cornelius execute his conquest of Wonderland, she plots her own vengeance against the world that cast her out. In the city’s cold shadows, Avoria finds pawns in the souls that defied her, truth in the reflection that calls to her, and power in the past that forged her. And thus, the Ivory Queen begins carving a path to the ultimate throne.

After a lifetime of

prestigious Ashing navy flagship, sails into battle with one vital mission—and
Barred from the sea and
facing a political marriage, Nile masquerades as a common sailor on the first

too-handsome first officer intent on making her life a living hell, Nile must

terrifying and forbidden magic now tingles in Nile’s blood. If anyone catches
wind of who Nile is or what she can do, her life is over.

the ship, Nile may have no choice but to unleash the truth that will curse her
AIR AND ASH is the thrilling first installment of the TIDES series.
Recommended for fans of Sarah J. Maas, Tamora Pierce, and Naomi Novik.
My breaths come quick, my
side vision a blur of sand. The horses rear, showing their bellies and hooves.
When Red turns to the beasts, I crash into him. The impact ricochets through
me. I drop my rock.
Red staggers but remains
I wrap my arms around Red
and draw the other pistol from his waistline even as he throws me to the
ground. I land in a heap and breathless, but my hands still clutch the gun.
Inconveniently, the bloody
weapon is as much a danger to me as to the men. It bucks in my hand, yielding
to the natural pulse of Clay’s uncontrolled magic. Rising to one knee, I move
the barrel between Bald and Red. “Stop,” I command. “All of you.”
Three sets of eyes grip me.
None give a sign of recognition. I little blame them—having spent most of my
life aboard an Ashing ship, the only people who’d reliably recognize me are
those I’ve served with. This Felielle trio is unlikely to recognize even Thad
outside the throne room, or think twice if they heard my name absent
My palms are moist, but I
know better than to let the fear slip into my voice. “I believe the man has
understood your message,” I say.
Clay’s dog chooses that
moment to run up beside me and bare its teeth. Its low growl leadens the air
between us.
One heartbeat stretches
after another, punctuated by the break of waves and the horses’ snorts. My
breaths come quick and shallow. I’m unlikely to miss at this range, but the
pistol is good for one shot only.
Bald squints. “What’s your
stake in this?”
“A broken law and a bound
man.” I shake my head. The constant foreign presence in Ashing is a necessary
burden for now, but I hope to see it end after the war. “One pistol has fired
already, gentlemen. I expect the Ashing patrols are en route to investigate.”
Red scowls at me, likely
calculating whether he might knock me to the ground before I squeeze off the
trigger or the horses scamper. He probably can.
I scowl back, hoping the
thugs’ employer paid them too little to risk their hides so greatly. “I would
wager you will pay with your horses and backs if the patrols come upon us now.”
Bald snorts and makes a
decision. “Is the lady correct, Domenic? Has the message penetrated?” He lands
a vicious knee in the man’s abdomen.
Domenic’s jaw tightens, and
he has to draw a breath before he can speak. “I have a debt.” His voice is
steadier than I had expected. “I will pay it.”
“Why, that is all we wished
to hear in the first place.” Bald pats Domenic’s shoulder and turns away, then
twists back and punches Domenic’s jaw as an afterthought. “A pinch of a memory
aid.” He chuckles at his joke and, accepting the reins from Red, swings into
the saddle. The horses neigh and pick up a gallop, eager to be away, and I
raise my free arm to shield my eyes from the flying sand.

Arc Book Review Roar by Cora Carmack

 In a land ruled and shaped by violent magical storms, power lies with those who control them.
Aurora Pavan comes from one of the oldest Stormling families in existence. Long ago, the ungifted pledged fealty and service to her family in exchange for safe haven, and a kingdom was carved out from the wildlands and sustained by magic capable of repelling the world’s deadliest foes. As the sole heir of Pavan, Aurora’s been groomed to be the perfect queen. She’s intelligent and brave and honorable. But she’s yet to show any trace of the magic she’ll need to protect her people.
To keep her secret and save her crown, Aurora’s mother arranges for her to marry a dark and brooding Stormling prince from another kingdom. At first, the prince seems like the perfect solution to all her problems. He’ll guarantee her spot as the next queen and be the champion her people need to remain safe. But the more secrets Aurora uncovers about him, the more a future with him frightens her. When she dons a disguise and sneaks out of the palace one night to spy on him, she stumbles upon a black market dealing in the very thing she lacks—storm magic. And the people selling it? They’re not Stormlings. They’re storm hunters.
Legend says that her ancestors first gained their magic by facing a storm and stealing part of its essence. And when a handsome young storm hunter reveals he was born without magic, but possesses it now, Aurora realizes there’s a third option for her future besides ruin or marriage. 

She might not have magic now, but she can steal it if she’s brave enough.
Challenge a tempest. Survive it. And you become its master.
Jan’s Review

This book was a great read and I loved the beautiful storm descriptions we get from the author.  She takes you right into the heart of the storms and weaves this magical story about a heroine who is hiding that she even though a part of a magical history of people with magic when she is tested she found lacking in that department.  Our heroine discovers that what she always knew about storms and their treasures are not all true.

In this world their is storm magic that some possess they can manipulate power of various storms, hurricanes, dust storms, thunderstorms etc.  If these characters which are referred to as “stormlings” are powerful they can dispel storms and even take the storms heart and those are turned into gemstones. With these stones the royalty set themselves apart from those without magic.  Here is where our princess finds that their are those who are called storm hunters who attempt to contain the magic of the storms and with dreams of gaining the heart of the storm.  I would call them treasure hunters. 

Of course we have a triangle romance as well where our princess has to pick the best political match for what will help her keep her secret. She ends up like most ya fanatasy she has a prince and of course someone below her station and that the storm hunter.  Throughout the book our princess struggles with her secret, the truths she discovers, and what is best for the world.  This is a great start to a unique story and if you pick it up ya won’t be let down.
