THE EPIC ADVENTURES OF WHIZ GRASS AND POOT BERRY Book Excerpt:

As you should have guessed by the title, this is not the standard bedtime story with a princess and a prince and an evil stepparent and some sort of magic spell. Not one castle, nor trolls, not even an enchanted forest is tucked with loving care into this bedtime story. To be totally honest about the whole shebang, it’s not so much a bedtime story as a bedtime epic event. An explanation may be in order right about now. There are 30 Adventures in this saga, to be read in order as bedtime stories. No skipping around, mind you, because it will make even less sense if you do that, so when you get to the Temple of the Belchmonkeys and your mind is not totally prepared for it, well, that’s a whole different bucket of pickles altogether. And you could rip through more than one story in a night, but that might just make your kids loopy. 30 Adventures, 30 nights, so you’re pretty much covered for a month. Now, somebody’s going to screech that some months have 31 days (thanks, May and October and you other troublemakers for screwing this up) and so you have a day left over. And there’s some real hollering going on about the February problem, and how if you read this story during that month, even during a leap year, you still have extra story left over. The thing is, the story is 30 nights long because it’s a nice round number (unlike 31, which is prime, for crying out loud) and that’s how long the story takes to tell. So there. The important idea is that this is an interactive story. Not a passive story where your kid lays there like an unfortunate lump on the mattress and you yammer on until you bore the poor child to sleep. This story has a narrator reading the action lines (that’s you, sport). There are also 21 different voices in the tale, all of which you’ll have fun doing. Even better, let your child read along and read a voice or two. The full list of voices is on the next few pages, plus what we think they sound like, although you can change them pretty much any way you want. It’s not like we’re keeping score. Also, you will find action lines sprinkled throughout. You’ll recognize these because they’re in italics so they look like they’re in motion, hence we call them action lines and they instruct you or your offspring to do certain things. Be nice and gentle, since you’ll have to start a pillow fight in Adventure 1. Remember, you’re bigger. Play nice.

Heroes of Hastovia Book 3 Book Excerpt:

Would you risk your afterlife to get back to those you love? Karl expected the afterlife to be better than swinging a pickaxe at nuggets for a tyrant. Not much better, but definitely slightly better. He misses his home, his friends, and seawater that doesn't burn his skin. He could stick around and spend eternity at the mercy of the deluded narcissist, Zianfer, or he could escape into the unknown and see if it's better. But it's not so straightforward. Others are caught up in his escape and he learns of a horrific maze that leads to a portal back to the Land of the Living. Back home. Unfortunately, Zianfer wants to control that portal so she can rule the realms of the living and the dead. So another perilous adventure begins for Karl. With a half dragon, half giant who needs to get back to stop a war, a vengeful warrior with anger management issues, a friendly face he never expected to meet and others, Karl searches for the maze that will either give him a second chance at the life he sacrificed for others, or be his final quest. Join Karl and his friends in the final book in the comedy fantasy series, full of heart, laughs, strange creatures, and more. If you like epic fantasy with a touch of humour, you'll love this!

Heroes of Hastovia Book 1 Book Excerpt:

Will Karl find his true home before he’s killed by a crazed Man-Hawk? Karl’s had a rotten week. He lost another job, a tyrant Man-Hawk invaded the only place he ever called home, and to make things worse, a greedy parrot just revealed that Karl isn’t who he thinks he is. Clueless and hopeless, Karl has to find a portal to his real home before he’s captured. Luckily he has the help of an Oaf, obsessed with revenge but incapable of killing, and Questions, the last of her kind who can only talk in questions. And so Karl’s adventure begins. He’s forced to explore a magical world that terrifies him. He'll make friends, enemies and put his hand in dragon dung. It’s an adventure he doesn’t want to be on, but one which will change his life… forever. International Emmy nominated writer, Mark Boutros, brings you a warm, humorous and sometimes dark fantasy about friendship, featuring magic, monsters, morons and more. PRAISE FOR HEROES OF HASTOVIA: "The story has the perfect balance of fantasy and comedy, making this book an unputdownable page turner....I still don't know what an eye sneeze is, maybe one day i'll know. If you like Roald Dahl and Terry Pratchett, this is for you!" By Pixie Britton, author of Kill or Cure “Mark has found the perfect sense of balance between fantasy and comedy and wove them together to make this book a page-turner (I read this in a day). You will honestly be swept away in the wonderfully whimsical world of this book and will eagerly be right alongside our bunch of misfits for the ride. To see the world as they do and come in contact with some magnificent creatures.” By Lauren Reads Join the three-part fantasy adventure!

Karl Barth Book Excerpt:

From the beginning of his career, Swiss theologian Karl Barth (1886-1968) was often in conflict with the spirit of his times. While during the First World War German poets and philosophers became intoxicated by the experience of community and transcendence, Barth fought against all attempts to locate the divine in culture or individual sentiment. This freed him for a deep worldly engagement: he was known as "the red pastor," was the primary author of the founding document of the Confessing Church, the Barmen Theological Declaration, and after 1945 protested the rearmament of the Federal Republic of Germany. Christiane Tietz compellingly explores the interactions between Barth's personal and political biography and his theology. Numerous newly-available documents offer insight into the lesser-known sides of Barth such as his long-term three-way relationship with his wife Nelly and his colleague Charlotte von Kirschbaum. This is an evocative portrait of a theologian who described himself as "God's cheerful partisan," who was honored as a prophet and a genial spirit, was feared as a critic, and shaped the theology of an entire century as no other thinker.

Karl’s had a rotten week. He lost another job, a tyrant Man-Hawk invaded the only place he ever called home, and to make things worse, a greedy parrot just revealed that Karl isn’t who he thinks he is.

They might as well rename times of peace ‘war holidays’ Karl and his friends have had their fill of conflict and are thankful to live whatever is considered a normal life. But not too far away, a noble deed produces terrifying results, awakening a fearsome foe obsessed with unleashing a power so devastating it could destroy all life on Hastovia. Karl and his friends must find a magic relic, put their trust in the untrustworthy, and make sacrifices that could include their lives. Hastovia needs some heroes. Book 3: In Memory of... Would you risk your afterlife to get back to those you love? Karl has one more adventure in him. Can he stop the greatest evil he's ever faced, or will this be his final adventure for the wrong reasons? Reviews: I heard this was weird, and it definitely is, but the best kind of weird! The author has found a great balance between comedy and fantasy, and I love the characters I met on Karl's journey. It's witty, charming and full of creativity, but it's all so easy to imagine. I can see why some people have likened it to Pratchett, but I think this is somewhere between Pratchett's whimsy and The Princess Bride's charm. I can't wait to read the second book Get the complete collection of the comedy fantasy series now. It's packed with magic, monsters, adventure, strange creatures, and characters you'll wish were your friends, and some you're glad you don't know.

Confined Space Book Excerpt:

When respected ex–Canadian Forces commander Bern Fortin cuts short his military career to take a job as the coroner for a small mountain town in the heart of BC, he’s hoping to leave the past behind. Bern’s looking forward to a quiet life, but the memories of what he witnessed during his stints in Afghanistan and other war-torn countries haunt him still. When the body of one of the workers is found floating in the huge bottle-washing tank at the local brewery, Bern is called in for a routine investigation. What first appears to be a tragic accident takes a menacing turn when the body of the worker’s girlfriend is discovered in a nearby field. Bern needs the help of brewery safety investigator Evie Chapelle, who, burdened by tragedies she might have prevented, is more determined than ever to keep her workers, and their tight-knit community, safe. Soon, Bern and Evie find themselves risking their jobs—and their lives—to uncover a killer hiding in a place where it is awfully hard to keep a secret. Deryn Collier’s debut novel is a taut mystery full of suspense. Confined Space was shortlisted for the Arthur Ellis Award for best unpublished first crime novel by the Crime Writers of Canada.
