Catching UP!

Books Went to Press this week:
CREST OF LIGHT: A Collection of Poetry 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?

Galleys that went out, or went  out again, this week:
WANTED: ROYAL PRINCESS SHOCK AND AWE, Royal Hearts of Mondoverde Series, Vol. 4., by Anna Dynowski
   Prince Maximillian, the playboy prince, is having way too much fun with the ladies, young and old and everything in between, to keep his name clean. Incorrigible, he’s been synonymous with scandalous headlines since he turned sixteen. While his laughing eyes, smooth talk, and charming manner make him the darling of Mondoverde, or at least, with the female population, the Graziano royal family despairs of him ever settling down. But can he find a woman who will rein in his wild streak and fix his princely image?
HAIL MARY by C.M. Albrecht.
    When retired cop Harry "Bulldog" Drummond dies, his free-spirited widow Mary, suddenly freed from the Bulldog's strait-laced ideas, recruits a couple of gals from her colorful past and the girls go on a tear. Meaning they create mayhem wherever they show up, much to the consternation of Mary's son, Creighton. Poor Cray just lost his job, he has a wife, two kids, two mortgages, a lazy dog and an old Chevy he was planning to replace with a new Jaguar. But the big raise he expected has vanished and so has his mother…along with his aging Chevy. To make matters worse, she doesn't even have a driver's license!

WENDELL & TYLER:END OF THE ROAD, Open Road Series, Vol. 3, by James R. Kincaid
   The Journey Continues: This all originated with my mom, who had this idea that I should launch a voyage of discovery (my cool way of putting it) and spend the entire summer exploring the world outside me and the world within (whatever that means) by driving a luxury camper from Los Angeles to my Uncle Marshall’s in Atlanta. I am supposed to “court the unpredictable,” she says, “travel into the uncharted, the mysterious, even the frightening.”
SECOND GROWTH, by Joan L. Cannon
   Second Growth is about overcoming the past, about learning how to accept as well as how to offer help. A brilliant physician must find a way to heal himself — in spite of himself.
Cover Not Set
THE LIMITEDS, A Geocaching Mystery, Vol. 2. by Jennifer Kirsch
   Fourteen-year-old, Luke, dreams of spending July at Camp Unlimited, where campers explore cave networks, set off fireworks in pyrotech workshops, and sleep in tree house hammocks. But to get into the camp, Luke needs to demonstrate excellence in a sport, the arts, or school. More likely, he’ll end up at SURF, his town’s rec camp, where athlete’s foot, mildew, and warts plague the gym, bedbugs and lice infest the couches, and clumps of hair make frequent appearances in the burgers. When weird blobs start popping up on Luke’s computer, he’s too busy trying to complete his Unlimited application to notice. But when the blobs start looking like a secret, uncharted geocache, he and his friend Gabe follow their trail, only to find themselves battling superbug viruses and navigating labyrinths while on a quest to save lives.

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

Heard the Writers Bloc meeting went well. Everyone was congratuating Ann Foley on her minutes. They will be meeting again next month, on the third Sturday at one p.m. in the Wicomico County Public Library in Meeting Room 3, or thereabouts. Any writer on the Eastern Shore is welcome.  They are working hard on their new collection, too. This time it will feature Noir stories.
Aside from that, Spunky recovered, but she's still no fun. Sleeps a lot. Okay, I do read a lot, and I sing when Roger's playing his guitar. But my Real Job, a Bookstore Cat is to let everyone know what our author's are up to!
SO, Please be sure to send me ALL YOUR NEWS next week.  
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!
