The Ruby Dream by Annie Cosby

Read on: iPad, Kobo, Nook
Genre: Young Adult
Link: Smashwords 

Ruby has always been called “strange” … She is an orphan, and has no family in the village. She sees ghosts in the woods. Hummingbirds follow her around like shadows. In fact, she’s never fit in. So when her best friend, Wyn, starts talking about traveling across the sea to a new world, she’s ecstatic … isn’t she? Is she truly ready to leave everything she knows behind?

Then, just as they begin to formulate a plan, a stranger arrives in town, and the world stops feeling safe. The town of Killybeg rarely receives visitors, and Ruby has taken this isolation for granted. In fact, she herself has never been outside the village.

But all that’s about to change.

Suddenly Wyn is taking chances he never took before, and putting himself in danger. Ruby is finding herself more conflicted every day about the idea of leaving the small town, and wondering more and more about what her past held.

The stranger has come and gone, leaving a vague feeling of unease behind him.

Will Ruby be able to escape the island at all, and venture out into the wide world with Wyn? Or will she find herself – and everyone she loves – paying the price for a history she doesn’t even know she escaped? Find out in this first installment of the Hummingbird Saga, a tale of love, loyalty, and lies, and the past that might come to save Ruby’s life … or destroy her.

The Get Real Guide to Retirement by Judith Pagel

Read on: Kindle, PC, Mac, iPad, Tablet, Smartphone
Genre: Business and Economics
Links: Amazon US   UK   Canada   Australia

When planning for your retirement, do many of those “heavenly retirement destinations” sound just a little too good to be true? Do you find that the “recommended” retirement savings sound just wonderful for multi-millionaires but a tad absurd for the rest of us? Would you like some real answers to your retirement questions? And importantly, do you want to know how to live well in a real world retirement?

The authors of The Get Real Guide to Retirement provide balanced no nonsense answers to the full gamut of retirement issues. Unlike those books that cover only finances or how to be happy, the Get Real Guide tells you what you really need to know about:

• Checking out that idyllic retirement mecca
• Calculating a realistic goal for your retirement funds
• Supplementing your savings when you don’t have enough
• Planning for living on your own
• Getting the most from your doctor visits
• Uncluttering mind and home
• Why you can’t remember stuff anymore
• Staying active and happy
• Getting your dream retirement job
• Making yours the best retirement ever

Judith C. Pagel and Franklin H. Schapiro are in an excellent position to provide retirement advice, particularly to the next group of retirees, the Baby Boomers. Both Frank and Judy came into this world just two years before the start of the Baby Boom. As such, they spent a good part of their life experiencing problems which the Baby Boomers would face, but they faced them two years before the Boomers would. (Think of issues like an overly competitive job market and now retirement.)

These two big data, high tech doctorates have now been retired a little over six years. They enthusiastically share their first hand retirement experiences with you, both good and bad. They also share their expertise gained in business and academics. Frank’s last position was in money management/financial modeling at one of the nation’s largest banks. Judy, whose last position was an IT project manager, was also recently diagnosed with a long term physical disability, putting her in the unique position of experiencing early many of the issues advancing age will bring.

Sassy Stitches: 10 Cross Stitch Designs with a Little Attitude by Tara Cousins

Read on: Kindle, PC, Mac, iPad, Tablet, Smartphone
Genre: Crafts
Links: Amazon US   UK   Canada   Australia

Show off your sassy side with these 10 original cross stitch designs. They are sure to bring a little smile to your day!

Designed to be quick & easy to stitch, the patterns contain only full cross stitches, with no half or quarter stitches, and only basic back-stitching.

When worked on 14 count Aida cloth, the patterns will fit nicely on either 6" or 8" hoops. However, you can easily change the size of your finished product by working on a larger or smaller count fabric.

Each pattern includes a colored chart with symbols, with DMC floss colors (a conversion chart to Anchor and J&P Coats floss is provided at the end of the ebook). I have also included a section describing how you can print out the charts to make it easier to work the patterns.

Because of the nature of cross stitch patterns, a larger device, with full color, is needed to truly appreciate and use these designs!

This ebook is intended for the reader who already has a basic knowledge of how to cross stitch.

Interview with Marie F Martin author of "Ratham Creek"

What was the inspiration for "Ratham Creek"?
There is a mountain range in Montana where logging is the main source of income.  The people who live there have care for the forests as they harvest timber.  Outsiders have damaged their way of life by vandalism and in the courts.  I admire the hearty people and their way of life.
How did you come up with the title?
I did not want to name the actual place so I ran names through my head for a long time and finally settled on Ratham Creek
Share with us a fun fact about your book.
I had a great time researching bear attacks, the flora and fauna, and recalling hiking in to the alpine lake as a child where I placed my heroine in the path of a grizzly bear.
Tell us about the setting.
I made my husband travel into the mountains with me and we hiked all over, even found an old still shack.  Made my descriptions more accurate.
Introduce us briefly to the main character.
Arianne Hollis is a recent widow.  She moves to the mountains for a new start.  And bam she's right in the middle of a feud.
Who is your favorite character and why?
Granny Ferrell.  She is the matriarch of the clannish people living along the creek and in the mountains.
What is the conflict in the story?
Arianne becomes a target.  Will she slide into the same mind set and seek revenge.
What makes "Ratham Creek" a great read?
Fast-paced suspense and a love story.  The people you meet and learn to like.

Katelyn Michaels plans on hating every moment of her visit to Mont Saint Michel with her father’s new French wife. Once there, she is confused when she experiences sensations of déjà vu as she and her younger brother explore the medieval village and abbey. She is even more disturbed when she is confronted by two unusual young men, one who insists she has a sacred mission, and the other who will stop at nothing, even murder, to prevent her from fulfilling her destiny.

When the oddly-dressed but alluring Nicolas slips Katelyn a strange medallion, she is whisked back through time where her Watchmen hosts tell her she is the only hope to save Mont Saint Michel. Even worse, she learns that those trying to destroy the mount are led by a fallen angel intent on learning the mount's closely-guarded secret.

Katelyn is torn by feelings of anger at being taken back in time, inadequacy at finding a modern solution for a medieval problem, and responsibility for the mount’s starving inhabitants. She is also perturbed by her surprising attraction to the ill-tempered Nicolas. Will she stay to learn why she was chosen by the Archangel Michael and find a way to save his mount?

Ava Kingsley and Seth Walker might be the most unlikely friends ever. The only thing these two polar opposites have in common is a knack for wordsmithing. Back in college, they were known for their written sparring in the campus newspaper's popular "He Says/She Says" column.

At their ten-year college reunion, they pick up right where they left off. Except this time their squabbling leads to a surprising turn: friendship and a year-long exchange of emails. So when Ava approaches a crossroads in her athletics department career in Minnesota, Seth is quick to offer the open apartment above the restaurant he's been remodeling in Maple Valley, Iowa.

Ava doesn't know where her career will lead her next, but she's starting to suspect she might see Seth as more than a pen pal. Which would be exciting...except for the fact that he only sees her as a friend.

As Maple Valley grows on her, Ava wonders if there might be something here for her even though Seth is unavailable. And maybe, just maybe, after all the words the two of them have exchanged over the years, they'll finally be able to say the three that matter most.
