Content Rating: G. Children’s picture book with no adult topics or language

When one little girl tries to solve a big problem involving a goose on her roof, she enlists the help of her animal friends. Despite her best efforts, things don’t go as planned, and she ends up with additional challenges to navigate as well. The Goose on the Roof features rhymes, animal characters, and a theme of problem-solving. The order of the characters can serve as a memory game as the story builds up and unwinds. Children may also be encouraged to come up with their own ideas for how to solve the issue of the honking goose on the roof and the predicaments created by the other animals. Winner (1st place) of the 2020 Purple Dragonfly Book Awards in the animals/pets category (ebook), this children’s story highlights animals in a wholesome and engaging way.

My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

This is one of the best children’s books I’ve read in a while. I’m always looking for books to read to my grandkids, and this is one that’s going on my grandkids’ shelf.

I read the hardcover and it’s about 8 1/2″ by 11 1/2″ so it’s perfect for reading to one or many children. The colors are bright and pop off the page. They’ll definitely keep a child’s interest. The text will also keep their interest because it’s fun to read. It rhymes and it has that rhythmic quality that’s fun to read, like Green Eggs and Ham or There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly.

The Goose on the Roof also encourages children to get help from an adult when needed. Although several animals tried to help, this was a job for Dad! This is definitely a book to get if you’re wanting something fun and that will interest children.

About the Author

Sarah Sommer enjoys working with words in a way that makes the story feel musical and rhythmical, which is a reflection of her first career in music as a professional clarinetist. She is passionate about animals and enjoys nature, the arts, and dark chocolate.

Guest Review by Nora S.

I can honestly say that I’ve never read another book like this, and I will be thinking about this one for a long time to come. I love mysteries, I thought I had read every type of mystery, and then, enter ‘Dark River’ by Avery Jenkins. This book was atmospheric, it was unique and it was stunning in its employment of words, imagery and metaphysical. I loved every second and I so wanted to keep reading when it ended.

Asa Cire is a gray market dealer. He claims that, when people ask him what he does for a living, he says he “sells stuff.” Which is true. He obtains things like historical texts, manuscripts, mechanical devices, etc. all of which could be counted as antiques and some of which could be counted as illegal in some countries. Then he resells them to collectors. Asa does enough business that he owns a shop where he employs a sassy, street-smart young woman named Neveah.

All of this is going quite well for Asa until one day, when he is meditating, he has a strange vision of a young girl. In this vision, the girl is dead but still screaming out for help.  The vision is so real that Asa remembers it vividly and the next day, when he is visiting a friend who runs the local historical society, he discovers that the girl was murdered 20 years earlier. Asa decides to take up the girl’s cold case to find out why her spirit was calling to him of all people and the case ends up getting complicated, involving a strange manuscript and an illegal Chinese artifacts dealer.

The ending is unexpected and Asa must cope with consequences beyond what he was expecting in this genre-bending story. This is definitely not one to miss if you love a good mystery!

Praise for Avery Jenkins

“A Taoist Jack Reacher”-Beta Reader

“This is a fine and lively read. The perfect way to get my mind off the damn pandemic. I read it in 2 glorious evenings. Tightly written. Fast-moving. Well-drawn, interesting and multi-dimensional characters. All the action and escapism I have come to expect from a Tom Clancy or Lee Child novel, but far more interesting, and much more spiritually satisfying. The author kept teaching me things as he entertained the hell out of me. I hope he’s busy writing the next book in the series now, because I’m hooked.”-Bob Corlett, Amazon

“This book is incredible. There were twists and turns constantly; I couldn’t put it down! I can’t recommend it highly enough for a non stop story lockdown page turner.”-Lina Holopainen, Goodreads

Replanting Grapevines

This was written in the springtime, but I didn’t want to wait until next spring to share it.

Cynical Wordsmith

It’s that time of year
When we take stock
And evaluate the damage
Of the previous winter.
The survivors are praised,
With a gentle apathy.
The corpses are removed
And replaced.
Fifteen inches down,
Their new home awaits.
In the summer, we’ll see
How many of them stay.
The dead are random.
There’s almost no significance
Of their haphazard fates.
The work is dirty,
But well worth the effort.

As I sit here and reflect
At the work done today,
My body is tired
My clothes are filthy
And all I can think,
Is how my first line
Sounds like Nancy Wilson
Singing The Christmas Waltz.

My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy from the author. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Silence of Islands is a book full of poetry that I enjoyed. The poems are all so different. They are about art, nature, travel, relationships, family, loss of loved ones, and more. You can feel her emotions throughout the years. These personal reflections of the author have the power to move the reader in one way or another.

Here’s a short, cute poem from May 22, 1989, when she was in Venice:

Trouble

Oooh we got trouble
size thirty Jeans
trouble at five foot eleven
trouble on that motorcycle
trouble in that kiss

Here comes trouble
with a capital T
Trouble
you’re trouble
total trouble

I love trouble

I think my favorite poem out of all of these is “Close Friends.” It’s a funny poem about friends and their interconnecting relationships.

I read Silence of Islands in one sitting, but I will keep it on hand to pick up occasionally to read a poem or two once in a while. I’m glad that the author decided to publish her poetry. It’s definitely worth a read.

Guest Post by W. M. Raebeck

“Always Wanted to do Yoga?”

      Way before my first yoga lesson in 1972, yoga always seemed ‘right’ to me. And after learning and practicing it a few decades, I wanted to go deeper. But the only avenue for more in-depth yoga—from asana variations, anatomy, and chakras to pranayama (breathing), meditation, gurus, Sanskrit, mudras (hand positions), and yogic philosophy and history—is teacher training. So, in 1997, I mustered the guts for that and never looked back.

      Later on, becoming a massage therapist, also, I always offered private yoga sessions on my business card. This led to discussions with people long interested but who’d never tried yoga. Hearing their complaints of stiffness, decreasing range of joint motion, or apprehensions about age, extra weight, and other limitations, I eventually came up with 4 key suggestions for how to start a yoga practice:

      1.  Start at the beginning.

      Bopping into a crowded 6 p.m. class at a trendy Main Street studio, you’re risking a) getting hurt, because the teacher doesn’t cater to beginners, b) being intimidated by buff 20-somethings in scant Lycra, and c) never going to another yoga class because “it’s just not for me” or “it was too hard” or “I got hurt.” Indeed, that class is NOT for you. You need either a true beginner class where you can learn the basics in a safe environment, and/or a warm, caring, old-school teacher who isn’t showing off his/her contours or sizing up potential soul-mates, but loves yoga, loves teaching it, and understands newbies. Not so complicated, but sometimes hard to find. This teacher will probably be female and over 45, but truly could be anybody.

      Seek out said instructor. Ask around for the right class. And check if a local college might offer a yoga course—schools are about education, and more likely to start from the beginning, plus might even have additional info about yoga as well as teaching the poses. If you’re over 50, a Senior Center can be a resource. I know…sounds frumpy, but they often offer ‘Senior Yoga,’ someplace you won’t get hurt, won’t get intimidated, and won’t be the only one in baggy pants. And whoever teaches Senior Yoga almost certainly teaches elsewhere, too, and will invite you to their ‘regular’ class nearby. Then you can be a normal yoga student who already knows the teacher.

      2.  Find a class near your home or workplace.

      Once you’ve broken the ice by attending a few classes—Senior Center, college, or wherever you find that safe, intro-type class—your next challenge is to continue going on a regular basis. Make that easy by finding a class nearby. If you have to drive 30 minutes to and fro, do you think you’ll always have time, always feel like it after a long day, and always be up for squeezing it in when there’s a dinner party that same night?

      3.  Start with once a week.

      Many think of ‘real’ yogis as boney, sarong-clad, deep-breathers in Himalayan caves. For weeks, without food, in full lotus. If this is your vision or your goal, you’re in the wrong hemisphere and the wrong century. Los Angeles, not India, is today’s world center for yoga. Think urban yogi, health food eater on a bike, yoga mat under arm. Forget the cave, denunciation, and turn-blue inhales. We’re not aiming for transcendence anymore (though it can be a pleasant side effect), just increased mobility, stress relief, and more peace. Practicing yoga isn’t extreme, it’s a cool 90 minutes you work into your week (once you find your sympatico teacher). The stakes aren’t that high, but the rewards can be.

      Commit to once a week. Buy the 10-class pass to save money, and Tuesday night becomes yoga night or Saturday morning is yoga morning. That’s how you develop a practice. You don’t move to Tibet or fast until your third eye is searing passers-by. A year or two from now, you may decide to go twice a week, but once a week is a legitimate, beneficial, affordable yoga practice.

      4.  You should love your yoga class.

      You should exit your class wearing a smile. Yoga is a great thing and doing it should make you feel good. If you feel grumpy, anxious, sad, hurt, or embarrassed during or after the class, find a better one. (There are a plenty of inadequate or ego-driven instructors to be avoided.) I’ve attended classes of over 100 different yoga teachers on my journey, most not wildly memorable, but some magnificent, and even magical. The best ones had plenty to offer.

      Take these tips and you’ll do FINE!

      Namaste.

Guest Review by Sage Nor

‘The Artt of the Black Card: No Bullsh*t Guide to Business’ by Anthony Ryan Sadana is a financial guidebook like no other. Sadana’s straightforward talk and decisive writing style taught me more about business in the span of a couple of chapters than similar books that I have read managed to do overall.

Sadana is an entrepreneur who talks about getting his start in the business world by selling microwave dinners to his friends in boarding school as a kid. With such business savvy at such a young age, it’s no wonder that Sadana would later go on to experience the success that he has in life.

One of my favorite messages in the book comes pretty early on, in the first chapter when he talks about never brushing off anyone that you meet. Never assuming that someone is worthless to you as a contact just because they don’t seem to be connected on their own. There is a lot of great advice in this book and I really appreciated how Sadana made it relevant to today’s market. He gives advice about using things like Craigslist and Facebook in a way that a lot of older financial advice books obviously don’t.

Of course, like anyone, Sadana has made his fair share of bad deals and he devotes time in this book to talking about them, and what he learned from them in a candid way. He claims that he has learned more from losing money than by making money, a feeling I’m sure most of us can identify with.

Overall, this book was informative, witty and easy to understand. I read through it quickly and was left with a sense that I had really learned something from it, which I can always appreciate from a self-help book. Definitely not one to miss! I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars.

I received the e-book for my honest opinion.

Other Praise for the book

“Irreverent, honest, and right on the money. Powerful business insights from a man who’s seen itall. If you want to make a lot of money on your own terms, this is the book for you.”– Robert F. Burris, Film/TV Producer

“Incredible book; every person looking to be successful in business needs to read this book. The story is engaging and educational. Not a long read, perfect for reading on a plane or train ride. You will ask yourself why you have not followed this advice before. Cannot say enough about this book; read it as soon as you can.”– Julio Garcia, MD

“Anthony Ryan Sadana has no difficulty speaking his mind in The Art of the Black Card. And he has no filter on his voice or words, which perhaps describes “the no-BS guide to business” that serves as subtitle.
His message is positive. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes and fail. It happens to the best of us. When hardships occur, as they inevitably will, be prepared to lift yourself off the ground and get back in the game. No excuses allowed. Learn from the experience and work harder (and smarter) next time.
Sadana’s experiences bring to mind a couple of lines from the Van Halen song, Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love – “I been to the edge, an’ there I stood an’ looked down, you know I lost a lot of friends there, baby, I got no time to mess around.”
The author’s answer to everything is to outwork the competition, to pivot when necessary to find new sources of income. There is a confidence to his voice that some may mistake for arrogance. Whatever you call it, he has discovered ways to channel that trait and his own savvy to become a successful entrepreneur who has overcome multiple setbacks, one of which left him flat broke and millions in debt. Several of his lessons, his roller-coaster life and his willingness to lay it all on the line make this a fascinating and worthwhile read.”-Brian Rouff, Imagine Communications and Author

“Authentic, to-the-point, easy to read because of its anecdotal style. Sometimes funny, sometimes controversial, sometimes preachy, sometimes arrogant. Not for the easily offended. Has some very honest truths and good points about how the business world really works.”-Christina, Amazon

About the Author

At the tender age of 23, Anthony Ryan Sadana received an exclusive invitation to apply for the fabled no-limit American Express Black Card, which represented, in his mind, “the pinnacle of my financial success and the ultimate recognition for measuring any sort of achievement against your peers.”

A scant two years later, he found himself flat broke and millions of dollars in debt. Today, this entrepreneur, innovator, author and influencer enjoys a multi-faceted, successful career on a global scale in a wide range of businesses. He’s run retail operations, consults for large and small companies, owns his own real estate investment organization, and is involved in a series of high-ly profitable online ventures.

Sadana’s hard-won knowledge and insights, applied properly and with the right amount of motivation, will help budding entrepreneurs and seasoned business veterans alike create their own success stories.

Sadana currently lives in Las Vegas with his faithful sheltie, Lucky.

Hugo and Daddy’s Night-time Adventures

This children’s bereavement book ties in pictures with simple heartfelt words from Hugo’s daddy, Ric. Written as a poem and linked by colourful illustrations to capture moments, memories and feelings around the loss of Hugo’s mummy, it is also for the future.  It might just provide some help with a little one’s loss.

When Hugo lost his mummy ‘Jade’ straight after birth, many beautiful things were made for him, including a special ‘mummy cushion’ and a lavender scented teddy, which was created from one of her dresses. Hugo’s mummy t-shirts, which are hanging as buntin in his room, have been worn in many charity 10K and half marathon runs in memory. A personalised travel belt for clipping on Hugo and daddy’s backpacks reflects all the adventures to come.  The heart symbols lay on mummy’s resting place – red representing Daddy, green for Mummy and blue for Hugo. There is also a shooting star included for mummy and as hope for Hugo and Daddy’s future, the H symbol also represents this as a sign of hope and for the initials for Hugo Hart.

About the Author:

Ric Hart is father to Hugo Jaden Hart who lost his mummy shortly after birth in July 2018.  Ric lost his best friend, wife and soulmate. He is two years into his journey as a single parent and widower and has found huge inspiration, peace and acceptance from the loss of his wife by keeping her memory alive through the creation of his books and finding new hobbies and projects that he knows will make Jade so very proud and keep the fire inside him alight.

A change of expectations is one of the keys. 

A change of intentions is another.

About the Book:

Throughout your life, what you think, say and do are determined by emotional undercurrents running beneath your conscious level. Those undercurrents have evolved through earlier experience, some that enhance your life with pride and happiness, others that impact on the decisions you take each day without your recognizing it. Keys to Your Life invites you to see how, by releasing the disappointments from the past, you open to an excellence and a higher level of consciousness that you did not previously know was in your nature. If you are someone that wants to manifest the most excellent aspects of your nature, this is a book through which you will derive much inspiration.

About the Author:

Leon Norell is not a psychologist. He is a businessman. His qualifications for writing “Keys to Your Life” are his 80+ years’ life experience; in particular, his emotional early years, two years in the R.A.F, 60 years in the business world and a series of personal development seminars in the 1980s that changed his life.

Through his many years of experience, Leon came to recognise how people sabotage themselves in subtle ways and penalise others for their own unhappiness. He also saw how people are the authors of much of their own misfortune, and that by realising and releasing grievances and your mistakes of the past, they can achieve so much more.

Based on his own life experience, Leon’s intention in writing this book is to guide anyone who genuinely wants to advance from his or her current level of existence to a more fulfilled, meaningful and purposeful life.

If you are someone who wants to manifest the finest aspects of your nature, “The Keys to Your Life” is a book through which you will derive some valuable inspiration.
