Family blog!! Fun with Fall

Hi All,
So this is going to be just a picture heavy blog.  Last Thursday was Thansgiving so we had a family day.  It wasnt a huge deal, Just me, Hubby, Kids and my mom but everyone had a good time and I feel like we need to really soak up these years because they are slipping away fast.

As you can see the boys chose "In leaf pics" and Caroline who is a little more prim and proper chose sitting on top of the leaves wearing her halloween Elsa costume.  Everyone had a fun time and shockingly I did not over eat.  I am currently intermentant fasting trying to lose some of that pesky baby weight that has been hanging around since Caroline was born.  It is going well! Some day I will write a whole blog about the process and let you guys know what it has been like....

Christmas Holidays are fast approaching and I am looking very much forward to what the new year will bring!!! Hopefully many fun surprises to come!!!

Gearing Up for doing a Blog every day of December (I shamelessly stole the name Blogamus from YOUTUBE)  Remember if you have a short peace of fiction, non fiction, fanfiction, what ever (Im not picky) that you would like to have reviewed email me it soon so I can get you on the schedule!!!
Here is my email if you need it

NEW IDEA (Blogumus and Daily Reviews)

Hi All,
So as I am trying to go to sleep tonight I had a crazy idea....What if I did a new review for you guys every day from Dec 1 to Dec 30th?? Sounds crazy right??Probably so considering I also have 2 books I will be reviewing during that time.....Well I am nothing if not ambitious so here is the deal if you have a SHORT Story (5,000 words or less) that you would like to have reviewed during December send it to my email and I will put you on the schedule.....Put "BLOGUMUS DAILY REVIEWS" in the header so I know what it's for....
I am going to try to do a daily blog during December anyway so this will make it a little more interesting!

Thanks and have a happy rest of your week.

"Authors Talk About It" Book award contest

Hi All,
So I know a much larger amount of you look at this blog then those I actually am able to do reviews for.  I have always said that the reason I do these reviews is so that I can help authors grow in their popularity.  I recently found out about the "Authors talk about it" Book award contest.  I wouldn't promote this if I didn't honestly think it would help some of you out. 
Here is some quick information about the contest!

Do you ever wish you could find amazing help with your book without having to give up your first born to afford it? You want feedback - is your book any good? what’s amazing in it? what could make it better? what needs work?

Guess what? If you enter the 2018 ATAI Book Award Contest, you get all of that…and it’s ONLY $45. That’s freaking crazy. 

Their team writes a thorough 250-350 word critique of your book, and they include a scoring rubric with notes for each section they score.

Wait, there’s more! You get to enter your book in either General Fiction or Nonfiction AND up to three more categories - all of that is included for one low entry fee! So, you get to enter your book in up to four categories. You’ll get one critique, but you could have four chances of winning one of their amazing prizes for finalists, let alone for the winners.

Seriously, this is an awesome way to get more eyes on your book and get professional support for a super low investment that you just can’t find anywhere else!

Jump over and check it out right now.

Hi All!
Hope everyone is well.  I am finally on break from school and that means I have lots of time to read some new material!!! I recently accepted Charlie King's book entitled The Lyon's Orphanage.  I will post a picture of the cover and the blurb below but from first glance and from the little bit that I have read so far this looks like a good one!!! Can't wait to update everyone with the review! 
If I don't talk to you before I hope everyone has a happy Holiday if you live in the USA otherwise I hope you have a great week!!

Sorry for the short post but I have to get to reading!!!


The Lyon's Orphanage

Sam Watkins, an orphaned young teenager, possesses the ability to read the minds of almost everyone he meets.

Howard Lyons, the owner of the orphanage where Sam has lived since he was a baby, has been reluctant to let Sam leave the orphanage.

Unable to read the mind of Mr Lyons, he takes it upon himself to investigate the reasons behind the owner’s decisions and learn more about the origin of his ability, his parents and the potential of his power.

However, Sam’s investigation and mind-reading abilities reveal a power struggle at the top of a faltering orphanage between Mr. Lyons and his assistant Natalie.

Sam’s involvement in this conflict leads him to look for ways to save the orphanage and uncover the true motivations of both the owner and his assistant while trying to learn about his past.

Hi All!

Hope everyone is doing well! We certainly are! There have been several changes in our family lately! All of them pretty positive.  First we moved! Not far, but when you are talking about moving 2 parents, 3 kids, 1 cat and one bird it can turn out to be a big undertaking...Otherwise we are doing good, I am still in school and I recently got a job through Virtual School of Excellence teaching Theology Classes.  We are also taking another huge step in our family and working toward certification for adoption from Foster Care, I know I wrote at one point that I didn't think that would be direction we would go if we chose to adopt but we honesty decided that international adoption really is not possible for us financially. We will see! I am going to keep you guys updated more frequently now as my classes for the summer semester are coming to the end.
OH and hopefully I can get some book reviews done for you guys :)
