Will Mayo

Crystal can I reiterate that you are the most adorable, loving, patient sensible publisher or editor an author could ever have?

December 18, 2017

Neal Sayatovich: I just want to tell you how thankful I am for you and Southern Owl. You have been incredible to me and I appreciate every thing you have done for me.

Testimonial from Author Victoria H. Loren…June 22, 2017

Sometimes acceptance (in giving up wanting anything more that what is humanly possible) is the best policy. We want our best foot forward and that is all we can ask for. What we all are doing is amazing given our resources. Especially you and your team as a independent publisher. We are not set up with elaborate programs or huge print presses. Yet, the final product can compete and that speaks volumes.

Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase
Amanda Sault, middle school student, is a poet at heart. Caught in the middle of a food fight, she and four annoying classmates are assigned after school detention for a month by Principal Greer. Their overseer will be lunchtime aide, “the Witch of White Pine,” and they must serve their sentence at her creepy mansion on Center Street.

So begins The Last Timekeepers and the Arch of Atlantis. The five White Pines Elementary School students actually enjoy their stay with the witch, who turned out to be the charming and intelligent Melody Spencer. Their stay was highlighted by the discovery of the Arch of Atlantis in Ms. Spencer’s flowerbed. The children excavated the 12,000 year-old relic and when Professor John Lucas sees his nephew’s picture of the archeological find, tension builds exponentially.

Ledwith develops an exciting tale of time travel where five children and two adults are destined to become Timekeepers ensuring that history goes unchanged, for evil forces are bent on its alteration for their own personal gain.

The Last Timekeepers and the Arch of Atlantis is a fun read. Middle school youngsters will appreciate its slapstick humor and an encounter with a teenaged Robin Hood just learning about his destiny.

Amanda Sault silently studied the words she just scrawled: May 1st, 1214—Games and songs and revelry, act as the cloak of devilry. So that an English legend may give to the poor, we must travel to Nottingham to even the score.

She frowned. She was the Scribe. Amanda knew that meant she was supposed to understand what this riddle meant. But she didn’t have a clue. All she knew was that she, her four annoying classmates, and two offbeat adults were standing in what was left of the lost continent of Atlantis and they were supposed to be the Timekeepers, the legendary time travelers handpicked by destiny to keep Earth’s history safe from evil. But no one had told them how they were supposed to do it.

Their problem: no matter what happened—good or bad—they weren’t supposed to mess with the past. Period. Dot. End of story. Amanda felt hot liquid build in her throat. Her thumb traced the words of the arcane riddle. Their first Timekeeper mission. Amanda knew this wasn’t the end of the story.

This was just the beginning.

Help Emelina and Addison solve a mystery in NO CLUES, NO SHOES BY MARSHA CASPER COOK

511yXRNS9mL.jpg  A friendship develops between two kids when they solve the first of many mystery cases. At first, they have nothing in common and didn’t see eye to eye on anything. Addison likes to read and write stories inside, and Emelina likes to be outdoors, jogging, skating, and just about anything that keeps her active. She likes healthy food and Addison has a sweet tooth. After a few weeks of friendship they realize even though they are different they can still be great friends.

Also available in Audible. Audible is very helpful in helping kids understand a story better when they listen and read at the same time.

NO CLUES NO SHOES BY MARSHA CASPER COOK
REVIEW BY KAREN VAUGHAN
Emelina and Addison are new friends. Emelina talks too much but wants to be a private detective. She and Addison are attending library day when another kid in the group announces that his shoe has been stolen. Emelina, Addison and her dog Stanley are on the case. They search the lost and found without any luck. They search the park and find what they were looking for and a whole lot more. They also find the culprit of this crime.
The story is aimed at 3-7 year olds and is great for detective wannnabes. Emelina is larger than life and a lot of fun. It was a fun little read and I recommend it for children in grades 1 or 2. I give this story 5 blue shoes.
