SORT BY Relevancy
Antoinette Kuritz & Anissa Wardell joins Bill today to talk about the democratization of publishing has made it so absolutely anyone can publish a book. The intrusion of heavy-handed government is threatening to functionally re-write both history and the classics. And the once simple pleasure of selecting children’s books has become a task; and young adult books have become a mine field.
With literally millions of publications, and the access of to both the internet and e-books, how do we select and encourage appropriate reading material for, with, around our children? • The mportance of reading for kids • Choosing the right books and why parents need to read what their kids are reading. • Using books as a tool for keeping communication open • Value of parent/child book clubs • Family reading time - why and how to make it happen • Books vs. electronic devices for kids • Why to choose books with controversial topics • Why we should NOT change languaging in the classics • How do we teach what the schools leave out.?

Tune in and join me as I welcome this week's guest.
Author Thatcher C. Nalley joins me on the Indie Books Show this week to talk about Letters from the Looney Bin and her other books.
In the late 1970s the Emerson Rose Asylum became completely abandoned - all the patients, doctors, staff vanished and were never seen again. The events circling this mass exodus have been one of the most baffling disappearances in history...until now. For hidden deep inside a tattered asylum mattress a stack of bundled letters were found. These letters, all addressed to the pseudonym Dr. Quill, and all written by the patients as they document the final days of the Emerson Rose Asylum.
Tune in Friday at 11AM EST or listen to the archive.

Dianne Ochiltree is a nationally recognized author of books for the very young. Authors Beat interviewed her recently at the 2013 Florida Writers Association conference. This highly successful and motivated author offers a fascinating insight into a very different kind of writing and the hard work involved with her creations. We then interviewed Dr. Alan M. Davick, asking him whether kids are really wilder now than ever before or is it something we are doing wrong. What is “mis-kidding” and how can we help children choose better behaviors. Every parent, teacher, grandparent and anyone having something to do with children will find this chat with Alan M. Davick, M.D., author of Managing Misbehavior in Kids, a very practical and useful experience. The question is: Are we really hurting our kids by “Permissive Idiocy?”

Skeleton Trail: A Riverview Mystery:
Bethany and Roger Meadows plan for a bright future, a guest camp and pack station that will cater to horse owners and adventure campers. The campgrounds, cabins, stables, and pavilion are ready, but there are no trails for the guests to explore.
Bethany and Megan venture into the woods to mark a trail, but a frightening accident brings her face to skull with a mummified corpse. She sends Megan and Kam out to guide FBI Forensic specialist David Harrison to the location of the body. After Megan leaves, an unknown shooter attempts to keep the murder a mystery.
Agent David Harrison finds when the bullets start flying Kam leads him to an abandoned cabin where they wait out the storm and the shooter. He discovers he wants to explore their shared heritage, in private.
With the evidence they uncovered in the cabin and the corpse itself, the mystery unfolds and the connections to current day become clearer. Crimes of the distant past link to crimes of the closer past and even to crimes of the present; blackmail, extortion, arson, and murder attempts link the body and some of the current residents of Riverview. David and Kam work with Megan and Aaron to uncover connections and reveal what occurred so long ago and how it might affect people in the town today.
David and Kam grow closer with each new danger, coming to appreciate the similarities in their pasts and the differences that draw them to each other. Once all the mysteries are solved, can they find a way to become a lasting couple, or will her past interfere with their future?

This is our Sunday Sermon and today V.R. is preaching on "The Flying Scotsman” where he unpacks some insights into the Scottish Patron Saint of Andrew. This sermon was preached in Scotland, on the eve of the referendum for independence in the Kingdom of Fife, the constituency which finally pushed the ‘Better Together’ campaign of a NO to independence, across the deciding line. What can Andrew teach us about strength courage and perseverance together with all the associated benefits? Does this ancient union of nations called the United Kingdom, and Scotland in particular, need to see the rising of some more strong armed men of the Lord? You Betcha!
Marta Moran Bishop, author and poet, will sit down and chat with Karen Vance Hammond about her award winning paranormal novel Shoe Marks and her inspirational story. Shoe Marks is inspired by a true story and takes us deep into the world of the paranormal. A place where anything can happen.
Adopted at birth, Karen Vance Hammond was born with an ear disfigurement, dyslexia, and learning disabilities. Unable to read or communicate well at a young age, she was removed from mainstream education due to failure and placed in a special school. Karen didn't let that hamper her love of the written word. When she learned of a woman who lived in a home that had paranormal activity, she was intrigued by the story, approached the owner and asked if she could write a novel about their lives.
While living with her own doubts she got to work. After the final manuscript was complete, she submitted Shoe Marks; to publishing companies. After countless rejection letters, Karen was loosing all hope that Shoe Marks would be published.
Not only was it published, but it went on to become an award-winning novel in the literary category. It adorns the shelves of libraries and classrooms across the world. Shoe Marks is Synegebooks best selling title in the paranormal genre and has been in the top 100-seller bracket numberous times on Amazon. Karen's second novel, Secrets in the Shallows from The Monastery Murders series, co-authored with Kimberly Brouillette has made the top 100 on Amazon twice since its debut and is now an award-winning title. Falling in love with the craft of writing, Karen is currently creating her third and fourth paranormal novels, entitled The Crossroads and The Stone.
I hope you will join us as we delve into the world of the paranormal and talk with the inspirational genius that is Karen Vance Hammond.
Imagine being in middle school, a 12 year old aspiring writer. You become brave and show your Librarian your very first full manuscript. The reaction you receive is less than supportive. Shandy Kurth was that 12 year old. I for one am thankful that she did not let this occurance stop her dreams from happening. We will touch base on how she overcame that hurdle and talk about her journey to publishing five books to date! We will discuss how this author finds time to be out in the work force, a wife, a mother and then finds the time to be an author as well.

Suspense Radio in partnerned with Partners in Crime tours is pleased to have author Scott Miller on the show today. Scott will be talking about his latest book "Counterfeit". For a closer look into the book, here you go:
The last person social worker Mitch Adams wants to hear from is St. Louis Homicide Detective JoJo Baker, a man with whom Mitch shares a tangled past. Baker wants Mitch to counsel Lonnie Washington, a disabled African-American arrested for counterfeiting and armed robbery. The evidence points to an open and shut case, but Baker insists it's not so black and white. Reluctantly, Mitch agrees and discovers there is more to the story-more than enough to get them both killed. At first Lonnie won't cooperate, but as he begins to open up, Mitch is convinced that the true criminal is not the man behind bars, but the prosecutor who put him there-a man with far-reaching political ambitions, the approval of the public, and his very own Secret Service detail. With millions in near-perfect fake $100 bills up for grabs, Mitch's life hinges on the word of a counterfeiter, the greed of a prosecutor, and his refusal to go down without a fight.
