Love for our Authors!

"Just one reason I love this book [Happy Belly: The Cake Book] is the brown sugar cream cheese pastry cream which is to die for. Many other reasons include the detailed instructions (Aaron wants you to understand the basics of baking), gorgeous photography and tempting recipes that will make you the baker that everyone envies."

"We don’t really know what they “look” like, but we can see them. The story [of The Wards] perspective switches between them, and sometimes others. So the reader often knows something other characters do not."
-Joan Sullivan, The Telegram
" I found the characters had a lot of… well, character, and they were really fun to read about because they were exactly what teenagers would be like if teenagers were on the run from power hungry evil aliens that want to take over the world"
- Ariela, Digitally Lit Youth Ambassador
A Life Spent Listening delivers practical advice [...] interwoven with [...] travelogues of hiking, mountain climbing and the Camino de Santiago.”
