Catching UP!


Books that  went to press this week.
The Red Knight Chronicles a Six Book Series, Second Edition in paper, all titles.
by Ray C. Morand
   In Book One of the Red Knight Chronicles, Judicator, Gwendolyn the Celebate, is kidnapped to join an ARMY OF THE DEAD led by Victor. She embraces the future and her new identity as Captain Isobel. Isobel revels in her acceptance by the other warriors, and tries not to be too disturbed by some shady areas in Gwendolyn’s past. She is impressed by the Army’s domestication of dragons, and the sophisticated magical powers possessed by some of them.
   The action and adventure never let up in throughout the next five books in this richly detailed collection of six dark-fantasy novels.  The intricate plots, plethora of characters and settings, and fine distinction of detail rival such well-know series books as Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones.   
   All six titles were re-released this week in second trade paperback editions.  

SINS OF THE FATHER, by A.A. Mann, A Dora the D.R.E. Mystery, Vol. 1
   As Director of Religious Education at Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church in the border town of San Pequeno, Texas, Dora Villareal meets many interesting and unusual people. This time she meets death.

Galleys that  are still out, or went out again this week:
Crest of Light by Bobbi Sinha-Morey
   This new collection is the very best of Bobbi Sinha-Morey. It delves deep into the stuff of life as she explores what goes in the lives of others as well as herself, expanding her waters. She writes a bit about birds again, dives into the beauty of life, often touching upon deep inner joy and pleasant idyllic scenes of how she sees the world through her eyes. This time, through her own experiences and research, she writes about Utah where she and her husband pent a total of three weeks. From all her rock hounding and sight-seeing she digs up the beauty of Utah, and the ways of the Native Indians who once lived there. At times she does nature poetry in her delicate hand, and she'll still do her haunting poetry, and diving deep down to what she fears the most.
 Trying to find your place in high school can be a challenging time in a young girl’s life, even more if you have a brain disorder. Being diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome, Chloe deals with the difficulties of trying to fit in with the right friends. Wanting to please them she gets into some situations leading to many disappointments. Chloe doesn’t see the destructive path she has made for herself or care about the consequences. With the end of the school year coming to a close can Chloe change things in time to graduate high school with her classmates or has she destroyed any chance of getting her diploma on time?

Jack's News!
  by your Official Bookstore Cat, 
and Gossip Columnist.
Hi Everyone,

   Arline has been busy as a cat with three tails this week, repairing and reissuing Ray Morand's Red Knight Chronicles series, because we learned some of the earlier ones were  listed as "out of stock" due to the rise in paper costs that had them being produced at a loss.  She decided to do all six, even though a couple were not listed that way yet, so that all six books would be available at the same price.
   Ray, they should all be back for sale on Amazon and our sites within a few days.  Also please Give Oreo a hug from me (I DO know that tom cats get strange looks when they hug, but) I heard he was one sick kitty and I'm sure glad he is well enough to play again. I saw on Facebook that he has been waking you up when the birds sing. I agree, that is always the best time for cat treats.

Since I don't have any other news this week, I think I'll go in the office and check out the printer Roger bought for Arline, yesterday. She's been having trouble getting with the old one to print ever since Windows 10 arrived. (She always prints out the corrections lists, so she can check them off as she gets stuff fixed.) This one makes ME look skinny and it's kind of closed in, so you can't see the little print head racing back and forth (I DID enjoy that!), but it seems to be working okay and the fax part works fine, even when the computer is off, so we can get orders again, 24/7/365.

Please be sure to send me all the news.

Just send an e-mail to with 
 "News for Jack" 

in the subject line, and

I'll make sure it shows up right here
for all the world to see!
