Audrey Kinsman (on your right) is the author and creator of Halloween’s newest tradition Switchcrafted: The Story of the Switch Witches of Halloween (available September, 2014). A proud mother of two young boys, Kinsman struggled with finding a solution to the piles of candy that her two sons collected while trick-or-treating in 2013. An inspiration on a cross-country flight lead to the creation of the Switchcrafted: The Story of the Switch Witches of Halloween.
The 20 page beautifully illustrated hardcover book and 8.5″ Witch doll come in a hard cover box with a Switchcrafted trick or treat bag. The product provides a story and platform for families to start a new Halloween tradition with their children by getting rid of all the sugary Halloween treats and exchanging them for something healthier.and all because the Witches need their candy for fuel (energy, heat, broom fuel). For all children ages 3 and up.

Happy Fall to all. Although in my neck of the woods the weather is very much summer-like.
My two guests for October are R. Lawson Gamble and M.E. May. Both authros were new to me and I am glad to have discovered them.
Mister Gamble has two books out at this time, The Other and Mestaclocan, both are suspense with a paranormal twist.
M.E. May has written the Circle City Mystery Series, Perfidy, Inconspicous and Esconced.
I hope you can stop by and listen as I talk with these two authors, and maybe ask them a question or two yourself.
Al Satterwhite has shot commercials, features & award-winning feature shorts as Director/Cameraman. He is currently working on several book and museum projects. His newest Project "The Secret of Muhammad Ali" Three versions will be printed: the General Edition (expected retail: $75), the Collector's Limited Edition (expected retail: $150) and the Artist's Limited Edition(expected retail: $500). These will all be First Edition books. Only 700 books will be available in the numbered and signed limited editions. Anyone interested should reserve their copy now as they may not be available in the same format later, and they will not be First Edition. The few photos of mine that were published in the magazines were overshadowed by the actual fight photos…. which I never covered; and were soon forgotten. I photographed Ali again a couple years later in Los Angeles at a benefit track meet that he sponsored. He still remembered me. After that the negatives sat in my files until recently when I started looking at what I have photographed over the years. There are over 50 rolls of Tri-X from those early years. I have edited the contact sheets and chosen 200 iconic images to choose from for this project. This book will be done the way I want, showing off my images of Muhammad Ali the best way possible. It will become a collector's book due to the limited number of copies available, and if you are an Ali fan or just like really good photography, I guarantee, you will like this book. You only get one shot at a book like this and I intend to make it the best. A Fine Art Photography book of Al Satterwhite's photographs of Muhammad Ali preparing for his first two fights after being denied the right to box for nearly four years - featuring both his iconic and never-before-seen images.

Anne Parson's is published by independent publisher, Rocket Science Productions.
Her first book, Charlie Walker and the Pot of Gold, is a mid-grade children's chapter book for ages 7 and up. She is both the author and the illustrator of this wonderfully imaginative chapter book.
The greatest gift a parent can bestow on their child is for him or her to believe in themselves. Charlie Walker and the Pot of Gold follows a young boy’s self-discovery. Fear had crept into Charlie and he had lost the ability to hit the baseball. A Leprechaun, a giant bird, a parrot, and a monkey help him in his quest to find the Pot of Gold. Their journey entails battles with many adversaries that test Charlie’s belief in himself culminating in his encounter with the tiger, Vesuvius.
Charlie’s victory, though, is dimmed when he finds that the Pot of Gold is empty except for one last coin. It is then he discovers the true meaning of the Pot of Gold. Believing in oneself illuminates all the treasures within.

Host Cyrus Webb welcomes author Scott Coren to #ConversationsLIVE to discsus the events that led him to write the book Matthew 13:44 and what he hopes readers are able to take away from it.
Saint? Missionary? Scientist? Explorer?
The titles applied to David Livingstone since his death are eclectic enough to seem dubious, and with good reason. In view of his own journals, saint is out of the question; even missionary is problematic when one considers his conversion record. But despite his fame as a scientist and explorer, titles he certainly earned, these were not the fields through which Livingstone left his most indelible mark on Africa.
Somehow, his impact on abolishing what he called "this awful slave-trade" continues to be overlooked as the centerpiece of his African mission.
The Daring Heart of David Livingstone is Livingstone’s story told in full, from the beginning of his time in Africa to the legislation that saved millions after his death.
His contribution to abolition, and particularly the Christian faith that fueled his efforts, have been overlooked in the public record for too long. This is David Livingstone’s untold story.

Author KAREN GRECO & CABIN GODDESS didn't get to finish their chat Wed the 15th. We never discussed her obsession with Dracula & exorcism, what she likes on those wieners or the 38.74 foot Crocodile in the sewers of NYC. We never even got to the bottom of her dislike of coffee...Let ALONE get into the nitty grity of the new Hell's Belle book, TAINTED BLOOD! So we decided to Hell with it (grin) let's schedule more chat time!
Karen Greco has spent close to twenty years in New York City, working in publicity and marketing for the entertainment industry. Originally from Rhode Island (she loves hot wieners from New York System, but can't stand coffee milk), she studied playwriting in college (and won an award or two).
After not writing plays for a long time, a life-long obsession with exorcists and Dracula drew her to urban fantasy, where she can decapitate characters with impunity.
Her first novel, Hell's Belle, was released in 2013. Tainted Blood is the second book in the best-selling Hell's Belle urban fantasy series.

TAINTED BLOOD (Helle's Belle Series #2)
Filled with fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat action, Nina and her group of supernatural misfits battle a surprising new enemy that threatens their very existence.
No wonder she still can’t get a date.
