C.V. Smith, an educator for over 30 years, is having a book giveaway for her children’s historical fiction mystery entitled Nettie Parker’s Backyard. With a bit of mystery and magic, she’s woven the timely themes of anti-bullying and tolerance toward all into a history lesson about African-American slavery and WWII and the Holocaust. Her main character, Nettie, is many things: she’s kind, mystical and heroic. But she’s got a problem she can’t seem to…Continue

SLIGHTLY OFF THE MARK
Here’s a great Fire Prevention Week story: The City of Philadelphia is installing an historical marker to commemorate the 275th anniversary of the very first ever American volunteer fire company, which beats most Indiana departments by over 150 years.
The city received financial support from the National Association of Mutual Insurance Companies, an organization that I’d imagine got hard hit by disasters this…Continue

I want to go viral. No, there is nothing wrong with me; several things have recently occurred to prompt this urge in me. The main reason is I think that Paul D. Brazill and B.R. Stateham have an awesome idea and I am hoping that word of it reaches its intended targets; in order for that to happen we need some help, a lot of virality.

, I’m fascinated by the steampunk sub-genre, so you know I couldn’t resist when I got the opportunity to read an advance reader’s copy of Steampunk: An Anthology of Fantastically Rich and Strange Stories, edited by Kelly Link and Gavin J. Grant. Although Steampunk is classified as young adult fiction, it’s definitely going to appeal to adults too. There’s really something for everyone in this anthology!
