The Adventures Of Fawn: ‘Til The Last Snowflake Falls by Al E. Boy
Genre: Children’s Fiction
Print Length: 517 pages
Publication Date: October 1, 2014




The Adventures of Fawn is a ‘coming of age’ series set in the magical world of Santa’s North Pole! The year is 1849, and legendary reindeer Comet and Vixen have a young daughter, Fawn. In this first book, ‘Til the Last Snowflake Falls’ the young reindeer spends far too many days alone in the stable at Santa’s Village with no friends and nothing to do.

While her parents caution her she’s much too young and inexperienced to go exploring outside Santa’s Village by herself, Fawn disagrees. Declaring, “I want some fun and excitement! I don’t care how dangerous it is!” she begins sneaking out each day in search of friends, excitement and adventure. She’ll find them all…but also find herself facing dangers like a fierce hungry wolf, a freezing North Pole blizzard, and the treachery of a sea captain capturing animals of the arctic to sell to a zoo in New York City.

Along the way, she’ll also learn some valuable lessons about what’s really important in life. The Adventures of Fawn are filled with fun and excitement for all ages!​

Tara Taylor Quinn’s Holiday Tour & Giveaway


Merry Christmas, Babies and a Recipe

Happy Holidays! Have you ever wanted something so badly that you can’t stop thinking about it? So badly that you’re compelled to do whatever it takes, even if it feels as though you’ve lost your mind, to make it happen? That’s kind of what happened here. When I met Elise she was going to have quadruplets. That’s all I knew about her. I’d seen this quad stroller while I was out shopping one day and when the questions started coming to my mind, I knew I was going to have to write a story about a multiple birth. Elise appeared and agreed to placate me.

And then, as usually happens in my world, emotions started to appear from nothing and take over my story. I fought them a bit. Tried to tell them who was really boss here. But once I conceded that it wasn’t me, a story unfolded that I think will touch your heart. It has certainly touched mine.

In each of us is a drive to achieve something, whether that be financial, emotional, career based, relationship based, or something else entirely. We all have needs. This is the story of someone just like us – a woman whose heart cries out for more. But it doesn’t’ stop with the wanting. Elise is a woman so needy that she steps outside the normal boundaries of societal expectations to provide her life with the fullness she craves. Her journey is lonely. It isn’t easy, by any stretch. And in the end, being true to herself and the dictates of her heart – she is successful. Beyond her dreams.

I learned an important lesson from Elise Richardson. I don’t have to settle. This holiday season, my gift to you is the challenge to ask yourself for more. And then to be there to deliver. And next year we can check back in with each other to see what we’ve accomplished!

And now for a TTQ recipe…

TTQ Cucumber and Onion Wrap

I made this recipe up and it has become a requested favorite for us and our guests. My husband’s mother used to make him a cucumber, onion and vinegar side dish. Sadly, I never had hers, but didn’t like the rendition of it I tried. So I set out to create something that filled the void for him, but that I liked as well. This was the end result and he loves it!!

1 cucumber, finely chopped
1 medium sweet onion finely chopped
2 grilled chicken breasts, cut into small pieces (optional)
1/3 C Mayonnaise
1 t. prepared mustard
1 T vinegar
3 T granulated sugar
4 Flour Tortillas

Mix cucumber and onion and let sit for an hour. (Optional, but it tastes better if you let them flavor each other!) Add chicken.

Mix mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar and sugar until fully smooth.

Combine mayonnaise mixture with cucumber mixture.

Heat tortillas on warm for 30 seconds. Remove from oven, fill and wrap.

Makes 4 burrito sized wraps

SWEET MUSE Guest Post & Giveaway


The Story Behind Sweet Muse

A lot of people ask if Sweet Muse is an autobiography and if I’m Anna Starr. What I can say is that Sweet Muse might have been inspired by experiences I’ve had and people I’ve met and that Anna and I do share some personality traits. But it is purely a work of fiction.

I can also say that when The Devil Wears Prada was published, I was working at one of the world’s biggest fashion magazines, and I had the same idea to use my wild magazine stories as a backdrop for a novel. A decade later, I was still thinking about writing that novel, setting it in the late nineties—the last hurrah of publishing, before the web changed content and magazine editors still had cache and control over the industries they covered.

At the same time, I’ve always loved romance novels. I adore a happily ever after and would tear through everything from historical to contemporary. I dreamed of becoming a romance novelist while editing the dating advice column. The advice we offered was so spunky and all about female empowerment, and I thought it would be fun to reinvent the category, taking a page from that approach.

When 50 Shades of Grey came out and became a phenomenon, I had an a-ha and decided to put the two ideas together—a big, yummy romance with NYC magazine publishing as the setting. I set Sweet Muse in a celebrity magazine. I worked at some of the biggest celebrity magazines in the country, and the tabloid news business is such a rich place of extremes. The personalities are intense and sometimes the tactics used are…questionable. When I worked in the business, people would constantly ask how it works and if the news is real. I felt that in this book, I could spill some of the inner machinations of how the cult of celebrity was built.

At the same time, I wanted to mix up the romance formula. I was tired of the same romance plot line, where the innocent assistant falls for the young, dashing billionaire CEO. I took a page from Girls and made my main female character independent, edgy, and honest. She doesn’t have everything figured out, and she’s experiencing the full spectrum of the agony of figuring yourself out in your twenties.

She represents the little bit of bad girl we all have in us. On her own for the first time, unencumbered by her past and who she had to be growing up, Anna wants to discover herself and reinvent herself. She feels free for the first time to rebel and break out of the good girl she had to be growing up. Finally, she feels the freedom to let herself go, go a little wild—and test the boundaries to discover where she fits in in the world and to create her own happily ever after.


The Book


Sweet Muse by Ava Cummings
Genre: Contemporary Fiction / Erotic Romance



About Sweet Muse:

Determined to overcome her difficult past, Anna Starr lands a coveted job at the nation’s biggest celebrity magazine in the center of the New York City power scene. She learns early on to make it on her own, and through sheer force of will she does. But frustration sets in when the dark side of tabloid journalism starts to poke through, and she gets duped while dating slicker-than-thou city boys.

Amidst a sea of cocktail parties, Anna meets rising art star Damien Wolfe. Their connection is dangerous, intense, and passionate beyond her imagination. He sees her in a way that she has never seen herself, setting her on a journey toward self-discovery—understanding what it means to be truly loved for the first time in her life. But she may lose it all when her blind ambition and his dark past lead to a crisis that changes everything.

Book 1 of The Husband Maker series
Genre: contemporary drama



About The Husband Maker:

Charlotte’s a girl with nicknames. She may not love being called Charles or Chuck, but the hardest nickname to take is the one she was given in college, the one that’s followed her now for too many years. They call her “the husband maker” and sadly, it fits. Every guy she’s dated since high school has become his next girlfriend’s husband. Not hers. Not three girlfriends down the road. The next.

Is she doing something wrong or is she just cursed?

When Kyle Aldsworth enters the picture and sweeps her off her feet, Charlotte begins to hope that maybe she’s not destined to be single forever. A senator’s son with political aspirations of his own, Kyle’s wealthy, handsome, and in need of a wife. Will Charlotte be disappointed yet again, or will she finally be able to make a husband for herself?

Mrs. Shelton’s words bounced around in my head. They call her the husband maker.

“That’s quite a frown you’ve got going there.”


Angus dipped his head, forcing me to make eye contact with him.

“Don’t be sorry. Just talk to me.”

“Have you heard anyone call me the husband maker?”

Angus leaned back in the booth and shook his head. His dark, worried eyes watched me. “Who told you about that?”

“So you have?” When he didn’t immediately speak, I knew the answer. I sighed and leaned back against my seat as well.

There we sat, both of us slouching against our seats, looking at each other.

“Why didn’t you tell me?” I whispered.

“Now why would I do that? Why would I purposely tell you something that would hurt your feelings?”

I should have appreciated his desire to spare me, but at the moment, I wasn’t sure what to think. “Wouldn’t a real friend be honest with me?”

“I was honest. If you’d ever asked me, I’d have told you. I wouldn’t have lied to you. But I don’t think a real friend would jump at the chance to share something hurtful. Wouldn’t a real friend be protective?”

I shrugged.

“Who told you?”

“No one.”

“Then how—?”

“I overheard Hannah Shelton’s mom in the restroom. She was telling some other woman that everyone calls me the husband maker.”

“Not everyone, Chuck.”

“You know what I mean. And why shouldn’t they? There I was at Harrison’s wedding. I guess I just made him a husband. I guess I made Skyler a husband. And CJ and Jerry and . . . I can keep going if you want me to.” I would have kept going to illustrate my point, but my voice was starting to quiver, and in a minute, I’d only have two options—cry or yell at Angus. As upset as I was that he’d never told me, I knew he didn’t deserve to be yelled at. He was here for therapy, after all.


His voice was full of concern, and he used my given name, so I knew he wasn’t kidding around.

“What?” My voice cracked.

He shook his head. “Don’t worry about what people say. You’ve had bad luck. That’s all. It isn’t your fault.”

The waitress brought out our food. “Can I get you anything else?”

“This is great, thanks.” Angus wasted no time piling food on his plate. “I hope you’re hungry,” he said after she left.

“I can’t believe we’re eating this much food at almost ten.”

“If the food doesn’t take your mind off all this junk, the heartburn will.”

I laughed.

Angus’s voice turned serious again. “If you wish I’d have told you, I’m sorry I didn’t.”

I nodded. I wasn’t sure I wanted the answer, but I had to ask. “Have you ever called me that?”

“Of course not.”

“What do you think happens to your dreams after you wake up?”
Gwen shrugged distractedly, too disoriented by her sudden arrival in the remarkable setting to focus. “I dunno. They disappear?”

The unblinking gray eyes of her young companion flashed as she leaned forward. “Incorrect. Every dream you’ve ever had still exists. All of them. They reside in a dimension called the Dreamosphere. It’s where we are right now, as a matter of fact. Each dream basically exists as its own world, or dream-orb. There are thousands and thousands of them, connected like drops of dew on a gigantic spider web. Every dream you’ve ever had, Gwen. They’re all up here. And you can visit them any time you want.”

Tabitha, the enigmatic child who shares this information, has some even more shocking news. Gwen’s dreamosphere is in danger. Someone has been hacking into it—destroying her dream orbs, erasing pieces of her past, and affecting Gwen in more ways than she realizes. Together, Gwen and Tabitha travel through the outlandish landscape of Gwen’s dream worlds to find the person responsible. What will happen to Gwen when all her dreams are gone? What critical clues lie within the pages of her dream journal? And what does Edgar Allan Poe have to do with it all?

Meet The Author


About :

I am from South Africa and I live in a city called Pretoria. I am a Chemical Engineer by day and a children’s book writer by night. I am married to a wonderful man and we have a beautiful two year old daughter called Allegra. I love writing stories for my daughter, who is a constant inspiration.

I have always loved reading. My childhood was filled with books and you would often find me crouched the corner of my room devouring the pages of my favourite book. I lived for Tuesday mornings as this would bring with it the excitement of a trip to the local library for story hour and the opportunity to take home a new book. I was the local librarian’s worst nightmare. I would arrive a few minutes early to check that she had not mistakenly chosen a book that had already been read in story hour.

I was a very bossy three year old with an insatiable appetite for books! This has not really changed much in the last twenty seven years. Dr. Seuss was my absolute favourite and to say that my copy of One, Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish Blue Fish was well read would be an understatement.

When it comes to writing, my daughter is my biggest inspiration. I love seeing her face light up with excitement when we sit down to read a book before bedtime. My daughter was fascinated by giraffes after we went on a safari trip in late 2012. This planted the seed for my picture book called How Andrew Got His Spots which is a rhyming adaptation of a story I originally wrote in the third grade. My daughter has since grown into a healthy two year old with a passion for aircraft which was the inspiration for writing Goodnight, Sleep tight, What a Wonderful Flight.

I am sure that there are many parents in the world (myself included), who are quite decidedly sick and tired of reading the same favourite picture book night after night. I believe that the words of Oscar Wilde best describe how children should feel about picture books when he said, If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.

BONESEEKER Blog Tour & Giveaway

BONESEEKER Blog Tour & Giveaway


The Book


Boneseeker by Brynn Chapman
Genre: historical fantasy



About Boneseeker:

Arabella Holmes was born different and raised different. After it became apparent she wouldn’t fit the role of a proper 1900’s lady, her father, Sherlock, called in some lingering favors, and landed her a position at the Mutter Museum. The museum was Arabella’s dream; she was to become a purveyor of abnormal science. What her father called a BoneSeeker.

Henry Watson arrives at the Mutter Museum with a double assignment–to become a finder of abnormal antiquities and to watch over and keep Arabella Holmes. An easy task, if he could only get her to speak to him instead of throwing knives in his general direction.

But this is no time for child’s play. The two teens are assigned to a most secret exploration, when the hand of a Nephilim is unearthed in upstate New York. Soon, Arabella and Henry are caught in a fight for their lives as scientific debate swirls around them. Are the bones from a Neanderthal … or are they living proof of fallen angels, who supposedly mated with humans according to ancient scrolls?

Sent to recover the skeleton, they discover they are the second team to have been deployed and the entire first team is dead. And now they must trust their instincts and rely on one another in order to survive and uncover the truth.
