Unicorn Book Feature



The Unicorn Quest

By Kamilla Benko


An enchanting, exciting fantasy about a real-world girl searching for her sister in a land full of magic and strange creatures, blending the timeless feel of A Wrinkle in Time with Frozen's powerful themes of identity, enchantment, and sisterhood.

Claire Martinson still worries about her older sister Sophie, who battled a mysterious illness last year. But things are back to normal as they move into Windermere Manor . . . until the sisters climb a strange ladder in a fireplace and enter the magical land of Arden.

There, they find a world in turmoil. The four guilds of magic no longer trust each other, the beloved unicorns have disappeared, and terrible wraiths roam freely. Scared, the girls return home. But when Sophie vanishes in the night, it will take all of Claire's courage to climb back up the ladder, find her sister, and uncover the unicorns' greatest secret.

Book Reviews2 for the Blue Unicorn's Journey To Osm by Carlynne T







Carlynne Toomey rated it it was amazing 

The illustrations in this book are beautiful! The story is great and there is action and adventure. This is an adult or older teen level book as there is violence and death in the story. The battles are graphic and unicorns die. I say this only to warn readers that may think that unicorn stories are always happy, fun rainbow reads. This is not the case with this book, but it is so much better because of the realism. Battles aren’t pretty, evil magicians do bad things. Can the non-magical blue unicorn save the tribe, or will he too perish at the hands of Magh, the evil magician. I’ll let you read this great story, enjoying the beautiful artwork and find out for yourselves.

Unicorn Book Feature - Space Unicorn Blues by T.J. Berry


Unicorn Book Feature


Space Unicorn Blues

By T. J. Berry


A misfit crew race across the galaxy to prevent the genocide of magical creatures, in this unique science fiction debut.

Having magical powers makes you less than human, a resource to be exploited. Half-unicorn Gary Cobalt is sick of slavery, captivity, and his horn being ground down to power faster-than-light travel. When he's finally free, all he wants is to run away in his ancestors' stone ship. Instead, Captain Jenny Perata steals the ship out from under him, so she can make an urgent delivery. But Jenny held him captive for a decade, and then Gary murdered her best friend... who was also the wife of her co-pilot, Cowboy Jim. What could possibly go right?

┃ Amazon 



PRAISE FOR EINSTEIN'S COMPASS:
"This is an amazing story. Everyone should thoroughly enjoy reading it. I was impressed with how the authors managed to incorporate the known information on the lost continent of Atlantis, Light Workers, souls, reincarnation, time travel and the early years of Albert Einstein before he became famous, into a mesmerizing work of fiction readers will have difficulty putting down. 
--Doug Simpson, Author of We Lived in Atlantis

"I could not stop reading this book. I read at stop lights and in line at the grocery store. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough." --- award winning children's author, Lisa Reinicke

This is highly recommended for those who enjoy a saga of good vs. evil that spans tens of thousands of years, for readers who devour novels that blend history and fantasy, and for anyone who is simply looking for a unique story that they will not want to put down. 
-- Jacqui Murray, Author as the Tech Teacher
The weaving of the story between the religion realm and Albert’s world is a captivating tale that keeps the reader’s attention. The good and evil of the timeless religious realm is like watch a chess match to see who outwits whom … I hope there is a next book somewhere in my future. 
–- Rox Burkey, author of the Enigma Series

Author Interview: Grace Allison Blair
Part Two

Where did your love of reading come from?
As a child my life was in constant turmoil. Reading gave me an escape to people, places and stories that kept me in a world of my own. My imagination came alive with possibilities.

How long have you been writing?
I am retired after forty years in marketing and business development where I assisted companies with their business objectives. I began writing books when I was laid off in 2001 after 9/11. The world stopped when the towers came crashing down. I asked God what I should do now. The answer I heard was: write your book. I followed my intuition to write my first nonfiction spiritual book, A Dream is a Wish the Heart Makes. Took me two years to write eighty-eight pages.

What does your perfect writing spot look like? Is that what your ACTUAL writing spot looks like?
My perfect spot is where I am sitting. In my home office, sitting behind my computer facing the west side of the house. Pandora radio playing soft music while I touch the keyboard and watch the day go by out my window.

Do you have any strange writing habits or writing rituals you’d like to share with your readers?
In meditation I will ask my characters to speak to me. Then I will wait for them to show up. Sometimes they will come to me in the meditation or in a dream or while I am out running errands.

What do you like to read in your free time?
Historical fiction, spiritual themes in stories, history, biographies.

Who are some of the authors you feel were influential in your work? 
Ken Follett writes historical fiction. I like his style of combing fictional characters in history. Also, James Michener wrote in a similar way. Murasaki, a female Japanese author who wrote the first novel in history, “The Tale of Genji” which cover one hundred years of Japanese history during the tenth century Japan.

What book do you wish you could have written?
I have written the one novel I dreamed to write.

Is there any person(s) you credit for being your inspiration for reading and/or writing?
My husband, John Blair, has been supportive and helpful. We often sit at the kitchen table and discuss the books as they develop. My spiritual teacher, John-Roger, inspired the mystical travelers in Einstein’s Compass and Albert’s travels to Atlantis. My co-author, Laren Bright, has brought his gift of writing that made the story better.

Who would you cast to play your characters in a movie version of your book?
The characters in Einstein’s Compass are nineteenth century German speaking people. Not sure who the actors would be. I do think James Cameron or Steve Spielberg would make good directors for the film of Einstein’s Compass. I have created postcards of each of the main characters with his/her picture and a comment each says in the book.

How important are names to you in Einstein’s Compass? How did you choose names?
The names in Einstein’s Compass were very important. Einstein had to blend with German names of the nineteenth century. The twin characters from Atlantis, Arka and Raka, were ancient names that were mirror images of each other but totally opposite in personality.

Some of the people in EC are real like Albert’s future wife, Mileva Maric. The made-up characters are Johann, Raka, Arka, the Countess, Werner von Wiesel, his teachers, the Thomas family and Pater Benjamin, Atlantis. These created characters are a combination of people I know with an exaggerated personality.

What do your plans for future projects include?
Not sure what I will write next. My time will be focused on marketing Einstein’s Compass. An audiobook is in the pipeline.

Is there one subject you would never write about as an author? What is it?
I would not write a book like 50 Shades of Gray.

If you had a superpower, what would it be?
Disappear when I want to.

If you were a superhero, what would your name be? What costume would you wear?
Grace, just me being me. Wear ordinary clothes. After all no one suspects you’re a superhero if you blend in.

Where is one place you want to visit that you haven't been before?
Japan. I am in love with the ancient, historical Japanese.

If you were an animal in a zoo, what would you be? In four words or less, tell us why.
A furry sea otter. Play, swim, eat, fun.

If you could speak with any accent from anywhere in the world, what would you choose and why?
French. My grandmother was French. I loved the way her words sounded, soft with lots of hand drama.

What’s something interesting, fun, or funny that most people don’t know about you?
On my 50th birthday I planned and performed a belly dance in a middle eastern restaurant in Dallas. Great fun.

What’s your funniest flaw?
I have mermaid feet. My feet have large bunions that stick out and my feet are flat with the heal being small and the center of my foot being wide. I swim really well.

If you could time travel, what time period would you first visit? 
Atlantis.

Do you have a mantra for writing and/or for life?
Dare to dream, listen to your intuition, be kind, be gentle with yourself and be courageous in your endeavors.

What is something you want to accomplish before you die?
Travel more and have Einstein’s Compass become a movie.

What do you want your tombstone to say?

Grace Blair was a spiritual warrior who served to make a difference to uplift the spirit of mankind.

Hogar Haven #1

By Kristyn Gansen


Siblings Micah and Sarah visit their grandmother’s lake house every summer, but they never imagined that a seemingly ordinary jaunt to the beach would lead them to an adventure of a lifetime.

A remarkable find holds the key to a magical world known as Hogar Haven, a strange world where goblins rule and visitors are forced to fight for their freedom. When they befriend a cowboy in the magical land, they soon discover just how difficult life is for those trapped in Hogar Haven.

Soon, they find themselves working with the cowboy to help him save his horse, but they don’t have much time. If they don’t hurry, they just may find themselves trapped in the mystical world.

Can they find a way out before it’s too late?
