Brittney (brittney_joy) | 1 comments If you have a tween girl that's horse crazy, I'd like to recommend taking a look at my book, Red Rock Ranch (Lucy's Chance, book 1) ...

Red Rock Ranch (Lucy's Chance, #1) by Brittney Joy

"Sixteen year old Lucy Rose is spending her first summer away from home and she has two things on her mind: an abandoned, violent horse and a blue-eyed cowboy. Only neither is hers.

Lucy has never attracted much attention from boys, but she can’t seem to ignore her blue-eyed co-worker, Casey Parker. A true cowboy, Lucy becomes enthralled by his gentle way with the horses at the Red Rock Ranch. However, she is very aware that Taylor Johnson, rodeo queen extraordinaire and blonde bombshell, already has her spurs in him. And, there’s no crossing Taylor.

. . . Not until a mysterious horse appears on the ranch and pushes Lucy and Casey together. The two are willing to do anything to save the black gelding that doesn’t want a thing to do with them . . . or the human race. But, every step forward with the once-broken animal makes Lucy fall harder – for him and for Casey."

Neil Pascale | 2 comments From my family to yours, a book of discovery and self-realization for middle graders called "Shine":

Katie Jackson is a 12-year-old pitching phenom who can't hit a ball anywhere nearly as well as she can throw it. A trip to the doctor reveals why, but comes with a startling discovery: She can now see a part of the world invisible to others. A world filled with vivid colors and fascinating creatures, not to mention problems that are suddenly thrust on the 7th grader. Problems that Katie believes are important to these normally divided worlds. But being a hero in one world may mean losing out on and off the team softball field in her normal world.

Catch it all in "Shine:"

P.H.T. Bennet (phtbennet) | 1 comments We are offering a free e-book of the middle grade novel, Raising Sleeping Stones, by P.H.T. Bennet, in exchange for an honest review no later than three weeks after you receive the book. Raising Sleeping Stones is an exciting fantasy adventure that will show middle-grade readers how to open the doors to their own dreamworlds.

When sisters Kiva and DeeDee Stone discover a mysterious plot that threatens them and everything they care about, they have to take a crash course in the ancient art of DreamKeeping to survive. As two elder DreamKeepers lead them up the Varruvyen river to the Eyle of Return, they show the girls how to gain dream powers greater than anything they had ever imagined.

But can they become strong enough to face the monsters that haunt their dreams at night, strong enough to fight the enemies that draw nearer each day? The answer lies somewhere in the broken history of Orora Crona, the Valley of Dreams lost centuries ago, and whoever can piece it together first will rule for centuries to come.
Please consider reading and reviewing this captivating middle grade novel.

Leon Jane | 1 comments Hi, I have a short fantasy novella called Shadow Valley (100 pages - 26k words) which I am giving away for five days, 12th to 16th March (Pacific Standard Time).

I believe it's middle school appropriate, there are heroes, villains, good and evil, no bad language.

D.M. Sears (dmsears) | 2 comments Hello all!

For your tween readers I humbly recommend my adventure series The Untimely Journey of Veronica T. Boone. (The second book in the series became a #1 Amazon bestseller last week, which I think is kind of funny because the first and third haven't risen that far yet. But I'm not complaining!) Laurentide Laurentide (The Untimely Journey of Veronica T. Boone #1) by D.M. Sears

Two girls, students at the same school but separated by 130 years, must work together to prevent a crime that allows evil-doers to travel through time and change history.

The books are positive about America, educational (with dozens of pictures explaining real-life characters and events), and focus on friendship and responsibility. Kids love the adventure and adults have praised how the books bring lesser-known people and history to life.
