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.?

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?”

Author Kimberley Reeves joins me on the Indie Books Show this week to talk about her book: Whispers to the Heart.
When Detective Mac Logan receives a frantic call from a woman claiming she knows a murder is about to take place because of a psychic vision, his first reaction is to write her off as a certified nutcase. But when he discovers a young woman has recently been reported missing, Mac feels compelled to check it out. As he and the psychic, Rennie O’Neal, race against time to find the woman before it’s too late, a grudging admiration and belief in Rennie’s abilities begins to form. But she is not the only one hearing voices. Drawn to the beautiful, fascinating woman, Mac is soon hearing voices too; whispers to the heart that tell him what he feels for Rennie is much more than admiration.

Excerpt From Deceitful Temptations'
Lord, please forgive me, I prayed silently and placed one of the heavy towels over the baby's face to stop it from breathing. It didn't take too much of an effort, because in a matter of seconds , the baby was lifeless again. I sat numb as I cried aloud, in total shock because I didn't have any signs of pregnancy, and still having periods. I didn't understand how I did not know a life was growing inside of me. I should have told my story to that TV show ‘I didn't know I was pregnant’.
I gathered myself and began to clean the blood from the hardwood floor, placed the baby in the bag, and sat there shocked,guilty, and confused until the sunlight of a new day crept through my living room window. I finally got the courage to get up and clean myself up. I decided to catch the ferry over to the Jersey City boardwalk. I discreetly placed a few bricks from the boardwalk deck into the garbage bag, then grabbed a bite to eat. I re-boarded the ferry back to the city, I made sure no one was watching, then dumped the garbage bag over the side of the ferry into the water , and watched as one of my many secrets sunk deep down to bottom .

Author Caroline de Chavigny joins me on the Indie Books Show this week to talk about her book: When Angels Die.
July, 1993, a young, single mother became the target of a sadistic rapist. Her world was instantly turned upside down as she was viciously assaulted and left for dead in front of her young children. This story takes you from a broken, shattered life and details how she was able to rebuild her world, while dealing with nightmares and flashbacks, mind-numbing fear, pain, the burning, boiling anger and an intense hatred. This book portrays living with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, attempted suicides, and finally, the steps taken and the therapy that saved an entire family. When Angels Die was originally written as a form of self-help therapy. And now, it is dedicated to those who need help and guidance in making the emotional transition from being a Crime Victim to being a Survivor. The time is now to let go of your fears and to regain control of your lives.
Tune in live Friday at 11AM EST and call in or chat to join the discussion or listen to the archive.
