Cal Orey News Flash: On July 31, The Healing Powers of Coffee: Nature's Surprising Superfood is ready for java junkies! It's the beverage we can't live without--yet few consume it without some guilt. But the wonderful truth is that coffee has gone from vice to virtue. It's time to wake up to amazing health perks of coffee. Available at all online bookstores (paperback and E-book).


Savannah Cal,
Thank you for the friendship.
Stay naughty,

Peg Brantley Thanks for your Goodreads friendship, Cal.

I hate to hock my first book to you… but you might like it. Check out a sample first… but there are plenty of great dogs in it. And a little science. Normally I wouldn't do this, but your interests seemed like they might be a good fit. It seems like you have talents of your own.

Oh… the trailer is on my author page here, if you haven't seen it already.

Thanks again. And I promise I won't be in your face. In fact, I'm moving back to my cave now to continue work on my second release.
