BOOTS AND THE BRANCH BOYS, by Marjorie K. Doughty.

IRIS DESTINY by Joseph Daniel Carr.
To almost everyone Colin Craft is an average kid in the 9th grade. But secretly, he is the crime fighting “Newspaper Myth,” a phenomena most people think is a publicity stunt. Few believe he can really read minds, create ice, manipulate flame, and even teleport objects with his mind. While the Myth is discounted by the public, one man knows the truth...a crooked cop named Allen Crestmere identifies him and becomes his first real enemy, fighting him not as a human, but with the same supernatural powers.

TRUTH OF YESTERDAY, by Josh Aterovis

CHANGE OF WORLDS, by Josh Aterovis
by your bookstore cat,
and gossip columnist!
and gossip columnist!
Members of THE WRITERS BLOC will be at the Tomato Festival in Vienna next Saturday, August 22 (rain date August 23). They will have a booth somewhere along the river front and will have copies of the latest anthology for sale. We published it! That sure makes a bookstore cat proud.
Members of the EASTERN SHORE WRITERS ASSOCIATION are completing their history. Back when they first got started, Arline and some of our authors were very active there. It will be interesting to see what memories that account brings back. We didn't publish that one, though
Arline is still not feeling very well, but Roger says she'll be okay when her sugar gets leveled -- or flattened -- something. Anyway, he thinks she needs to be less sweet...ask me, she's grumpy enough, now!
You all know that I am the oldest, the Official Bookstore Cat, and the top banana around here. But my sister is getting too uppity. They don't call her "Spunky" for nothing. She has held me down and washed my ears out three times this week and my ears were perfectly clean! If she wasn't a lady, and the baby, I'd teach her to be more respectful.
Please don't forget to let me know
what you are all up to!
Just send firstname.lastname@example.org a note with
"News for Jack"
in the subject line, and
I'll make sure it shows up right here.
