About the Book

Title: Ten Thankful Turkeys | Author: Angela Muse | Illustrator: Ewa Powdles | Publication Date: October 4, 2014 | Publisher: 4EYESBOOKS | Pages: 32 | Recommended Ages: 2 to 8

Summary: This colorful autumn tale follows ten turkeys as they get ready for an important celebration. This story teaches about gratitude. There are also fun turkey facts in the back of the book.

My Review

Ten Thankful Turkeys is a bright and friendly picture book that will help families with young children get into the Thanksgiving Day spirit. This story follows ten turkeys (family and friends) as they prepare to gather for one important Thanksgiving meal. Amanda's three favorite turkeys were the healthy fitness one, the one that liked to dress up and the baby. Those were also my favorites, plus Gramps and Grams. I recommend this book for young children.


Kindle version available for only 99 cents from Amazon on October 24 & 25, 2014. Grab your copy now!!

Angela Muse, Author
Angela Muse

Angela Muse was born in California to a military family. This meant that she got used to being the "new kid" in school every couple of years. It was hard trying to make new friends, but Angela discovered she had a knack for writing. In high school Angela began writing poetry and song lyrics. Expressing herself through writing seemed very natural. After becoming a Mom in 2003, Angela continued her storytelling to her own children. In 2009 she wrote and published her first rhyming children's book aimed at toddlers. Since then she has released several more children's picture books and released books in her first young adult romance series, The Alpha Girls, in 2013/2014. Her husband, Ben Muse writes suspense/thriller books that can also be found on Amazon.

Dragon's Bride

Fantasy Adventure Series,
The Dragon and the Scholar,
by H.L. Burke

Book 4:
Dragon's Bride

Book 4: Dragon's Bride

About the Book

Dragon Prince Ewan has promised his beloved, Shannon, that he will become a man again or die in the attempt. Now he will do anything to make good on that promise. With the aid of his scholarly friend, Martin, Ewan consults the great Dragon Queen Harviss, who offers him a unique solution: return to the past to find Ewan's Fey ancestor and beg for her help. Leaving Shannon behind, Ewan and Martin travel to a dangerous past and fall into the clutches of a powerful Fey queen. Meanwhile, Shannon finds herself alone and with child. Unable to sit still with her husband absent, she joins with Ryan of Westshire in the prince's desperate search for his young son. King Riley, however, will see Ryan dead before allowing him to find the lost child. Can Shannon find a way to unite Ryan with his son? Or will the attempt cost her not only her life but the life of her unborn baby? Will Martin and Ewan ever find the cure they seek or will they remain trapped in the past and Ewan separated from his bride forever?

My Review

After reading Book 3, Dragon's Rival, I wasn't so sure that Book 4, Dragon's Bride, would have the same affect on me. I really didn't think I was going to enjoy it as much, so you can imagine how surprised I was to find that it exceeded my expectations. The author has this wonderful ability at creating exciting characters and intriguing plots. I highly recommend Dragon's Bride for teenagers and adults. Books 1 - 4 in this series, The Dragon and the Scholar, will also make a great gift set.

ABOUT H. L. Burke


Born in a small town in north central Oregon, H. L. Burke spent most of her childhood around trees and farm animals and always accompanied by a book. Growing up with epic heroes from Middle Earth and Narnia keeping her company, she also became an incurable romantic.

An addictive personality, she jumped from one fandom to another, being at times completely obsessed with various books, movies, or television series (Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and Star Trek all took their turns), but she has grown to be what she considers a well-rounded connoisseur of geek culture.

Married to her high school crush who is now a US Marine, she has moved multiple times in her adult life but believes home is wherever her husband, two daughters, and pets are.

For information about H. L. Burke's latest novels, author news and events, or to contact the writer, go to the H.L. Burke author website.

Parade Day and More with #WW #Linky

Welcome to my Picture Perfect
Party Linky #113!


It was Parade Day for the graduating class at our 3 teenagers' high school. Our grade 12 son, Jeremiah, took part - it was the school's 100th year celebrating this tradition.

The school year is coming to a close in South Africa and my son will soon graduate high school. Here it's called your matric year and those who graduate are matriculants.

It makes a big difference.



Jeremiah had to be dressed and out
of the house before the sun had even risen.







They wore hearts in honor of 2 boys
who were from the same class and
who would have been there with them,
except for a tragic school bus accident
a few years ago. One of those boys
was very close to our son.

of Tradition

Home Office and #Weekend #Linky

Welcome to my weekend blog hop -
Make My Saturday Sweet #103!

The vintage photos and art on today's post were all passed down to us by Hubby's parents. I imagine they hadn't been hung on walls in years, so we gave them a new home - our office - and a new opportunity to shine without costing us a cent.
