Christmas Stories My Grandpa Wrote for Me Book Excerpt:

This charming book contains ten children's stories by Glenn W. Martin. The first eight stories were written for his grandchildren, and to be read to the children of the churches he served at their Christmas Eve Family Services. You will meet Browser the dog, and Marty Mouse, and the three performers who missed the Christmas Pageant. You will find out if Patty got her Christmas wish, and learn about the girl who didn't want anything for Christmas. You will go to the manger with the stable boy, and share the disappointment of Ladius, the shepherd boy, who had to stay home. And you will wonder, with the blind Jacob, whether or not the new baby can really work miracles. The last two stories were written specifically for this book, for his two youngest grandchildren. You will learn why Jesus is missing from the manger, and why Shirley Starcluster can't twinkle. These stories, which are dedicated to Glenn's grandchildren, will never grow old or out-of-date. They will continue to delight, inspire, and bring hope and joy. They are his gift to all children, whoever and wherever they may be.

Twelve Plays for Christmas but not a Partridge in a Pear Tree Book Excerpt:

Twelve Plays for Christmas … but not a Partridge in a Pear Tree is a collection of Christian dramas written by Skip Martin that explore the true meaning of Christmas. With an average running time of between thirty and forty minutes, each of these dramas has already been performed before live audiences of more than ten thousand people. Filled with lively characters, witty dialogue, and plenty of humor, each story keeps in view the goal of helping audience members develop a better understanding of the gift of Christmas. Any of the scripts in Twelve Plays for Christmas would make an excellent addition to a church Christmas program, Singing Christmas Tree, or other church event. “Skip Martin has the rare ability to touch people’s hearts with a unique presentation of the Good News.” — The Rev. Dan Cracchiola, music minister, Grace Church, Sarasota, Florida “Skip Martin has given us a volume of Christmas plays that are delightful and entertaining … The plays have conveyed the message of Christmas to all who have seen them performed. Having warmed the hearts and drawn the souls of thousands across the years, they will be a treasure to all who experience them.” — Dr. Frank Crumpler, retired pastor, Alpharetta, Georgia “We found these scripts easy to use and added our own music to make a memorable program. Each play has a great message that the audience seems to relate to.” — Becky Lawrence, drama director, First Baptist Church, Brandon, Florida “As a professional actor who has done many Christmas drama programs, my greatest thrill is when we’ve successfully touched not just the Christians in the audience but have affected the hearts and minds of the nonbelievers as well. Skip Martin’s plays do just that. I can attest to their effectiveness, the quality of the characters in them, and the ease with which they can be presented. I strongly recommend them!” — Mark Woodland, actor, BFA Florida State University, Bradenton, Florida “These dramas crafted and created by Skip Martin are spot on. Having used them at two different Christmas productions, I can say first hand that they are witty, solid, and provide room for adding your own personal creative touch. If you are in need of dramas for your Christmas program, this should be your go-to source.” — Mike Drury, lead pastor, Pine Hills Church, Fort Wayne, Indiana

The Year without a Purchase Book Excerpt:

The Year without a Purchase is the story of one family's quest to stop shopping and start connecting. Scott Dannemiller and his wife, Gabby, are former missionaries who served in Guatemala. Ten years removed from their vow of simple living, they found themselves on a never-ending treadmill of consumption where each purchase created a desire for more and never led to true satisfaction. The difference between needs and wants had grown very fuzzy, and making that distinction clear again would require drastic action: no nonessential purchases for a whole year. No clothes, no books, no new toys for the kids. If they couldn't eat it or use it up within a year (toilet paper and shampoo, for example), they wouldn't buy it. Filled with humorous wit, curious statistics, and poignant conclusions, the book examines modern America's spending habits and chronicles the highs and lows of dropping out of our consumer culture. As the family bypasses the checkout line to wrestle with the challenges of gift giving, child rearing, and keeping up with the Joneses, they discover important truths about human nature and the secret to finding true joy. The Year without a Purchase offers valuable food for thought for anyone who has ever wanted to reduce stress by shopping less and living more.

Creeker Book Excerpt:

Linda Sue Preston was born on a feather bed in the upper room of her Grandma Emmy's log house in the hills of eastern Kentucky. More than fifty years later, Linda Scott DeRosier has come to believe that you can take a woman out of Appalachia but you can't take Appalachia out of the woman. DeRosier's humorous and poignant memoir is the story of an educated and cultured woman who came of age in Appalachia. She remains unabashedly honest about and proud of her mountain heritage. Now a college professor, decades and notions removed from the creeks and hollows, DeRosier knows that her roots run deep in her memory and language and in her approach to the world. DeRosier describes an Appalachia of complexity and beauty rarely seen by outsiders. Hers was a close-knit world; she says she was probably eleven or twelve years old before she ever spoke to a stranger. She lovingly remembers the unscheduled, day-long visits to friends and family, when visitors cheerfully joined in the day's chores of stringing beans or bedding out sweet potatoes. No advance planning was needed for such trips. Residents of Two-Mile Creek were like family, and everyone was "delighted to see each other wherever, whenever, and for however long." Creeker is a story of relationships, the challenges and consequences of choice, and the impact of the past on the present. It also recalls one woman's struggle to make and keep a sense of self while remaining loyal to the people and traditions that sustained her along life's way. Told with wit, candor, and zest, this is Linda Scott DeRosier's answer to the question familiar in Appalachia--"Who are your people?"

Grandpa s Rocking Chair Book Excerpt:

The year 1929 was devastating for America. It was the beginning of the Great Depression, which led to our country’s economic collapse. The author, also born in 1929, lived through those challenging Depression years, experiencing firsthand the many adaptations and sacrifices needed to survive those trying times. Now some eighty-eight years later, the author looks back to review those key principles that helped folks survive those challenging 1930s. Although the times we are living in today are radically different than in those Depression years, the author holds to the belief that if these same key principles are followed by America’s working class today, they will be more successful in meeting the challenge of our ever-changing, complex society. This book offers some suggested guides that should aid today’s workers in achieving increased financial independence by following these same key principles, with grandpa’s retirement rocking chair as the goal!

Out For Blood Kula s Destiny Book Excerpt:

From R. Barri Flowers, the bestselling author of the young adult vampire novel, Count Dracula's Teenage Daughter, comes the exciting book two in the Transylvanica High series, Out For Blood: Kula's Destiny. Sixteen-year-old honor student Kula Lockhart is in her second year at Transylvanica High School in Harbor Heights, Michigan. It is one of several integrated pilot schools across the country where human and vampire students peacefully coexist. Kula recently learned that she is the half human, half vampire daughter of Count Dracula. This has made her a target for those who hate her powerful Dad and vamps in general. As she comes to terms with her heritage and newfound abilities, things begin to heat up between Kula and her mortal boyfriend, Eriq Pratt. She also has her vamp guardians Ivan and Amelia, as well as several human and vampire friends, to balance her evolving life and times. When Kula suddenly finds herself being pursued by a new handsome half vamp at school, Sebastian LeBlanc, she is strangely drawn to him, even if her heart belongs to Eriq. Yet Kula can’t help but wonder if it is more than coincidence that Sebastian just happened to arrive in town at around the same time that a vampire or vampires began killing humans. Could Sebastian be behind these vicious attacks? Another new vampire, Gabryela Roswell, befriends Kula, but has a hidden agenda. In the meantime, Kula has competition from an attractive human girl, Yvonne Elwood, who has her eye on Eriq. She also has to deal with the gorgeous and mean-spirited cheerleader vamp, Jacquelyn Brossard, a member of the rival Doerzic clan. As Kula grapples with these issues and the changes in her life, she tries to learn more about her mother, who died in childbirth, from the only person who can give her answers--her dad, Count Dracula.

Teen Ghost at Dead Lake Book Excerpt:

From award winning mystery writer R. Barri Flowers, the bestselling author of teen novels Ghost Girl in Shadow Bay, Count Dracula’s Teenage Daughter, and Out For Blood, comes his latest young adult haunted house tale, Teen Ghost at Dead Lake. When sixteen-year-old Paige Preston and her mother relocated to Dead Lake, Michigan, they were unaware that a seventeen-year-old previous resident of their house had killed himself by jumping off a cliff into the lake six months earlier. But was it really suicide? Noah Snyder is a ghost. At least he thinks so. Only he's not sure how he died. He recruits the cute Paige to help him get to the bottom of the mystery so he can move on. Before he died, Noah was the captain of the boys swim team and popular at Dead Lake High School. He had also suffered from depression after losing his father when Noah was just a boy. Paige, who had initially believed she was dealing with an imposter Noah, is stunned to find out that he is a real ghost and that there were more than a few people who may have wanted him dead. Being attracted to a cute teen ghost is no small feat as Paige tries to adjust to life in a new town and help unravel the mystery of his death. In the process, she soon finds herself in danger, as someone wants to keep a deadly secret at all costs.
