The Secret Zoo Book Excerpt:

A fast-paced and exciting read for middle grade fantasy, mystery, and animal buffs. Something strange is happening at the Clarksville City Zoo. Late at night, monkeys are scaling the walls and searching the neighborhood—but what are they looking for? Noah, his sister Megan, and their best friends, Richie and Ella, live next door to the zoo. Megan is the first to notice the puzzling behavior of some of the animals. One day Megan disappears, and her brother and their friends realize it's up to them to find her. Their only choice is to follow a series of clues and sneak into the zoo. But once inside, they discover there's much more to the Clarksville City Zoo than they could ever have guessed... The author originally had the idea for The Secret Zoo when he was nine and wondered what would happen if zoo exhibits had secret doors that allowed kids to go inside—and the animals to come outside. He brings that sense of adventure and excitement to this story, making it a favorite for home and classroom reading along with such middle grade fantasy favorites as The One and Only Ivan.

The Secret Name Book Excerpt:

Working in a creepy mansion surrounded by old books is kind of my dream job, but this might be too creepy—even for me. They asked weird interview questions like “Have you ever seen a dead body”, I swear I heard a woman screaming last night, and I’m sure the owner is hiding something—like why he hired me as a librarian in the first place. But I can’t quit now. If I miss rent again my boyfriend will finally kick ol’ broke Kendra (me) to the curb and into hobodom. Plus, it’s great inspiration for my writing. I just hope I don’t end up starring in a gothic horror story of my own… Anyways, I’ll update y’all here in my blog. If you like a quirky heroine facing inexplicable horror, then read The Secret Name today! Praise for The Secret Name:"With The Demonic Diaries, author Eve Harms gifts us with gothic fiction befitting our doomed 21st century. Cool, smartly-researched lore and a protagonist who, try as she might, can't stay out of supernatural trouble, Eve's series promises fun and delivers it." - Lucas Mangum, Splatterpunk Award-nominated author of Saint Sadist & Gods of the Dark Web. "A fun series - Kendra's quirky narrative voice makes the pages fly by, and Eve Harms makes the most of intensive, enthralling research. Compulsively readable - demons and possession with a side of humor." - Laurel Hightower, author of Crossroads and co-host of the Ink Heist Podcast

Reaching Reluctant Young Readers Book Excerpt:

Reaching Reluctant Young Readers features 150 middle-grade books. Each profiled title has the potential to hook the reluctant reader and lure them to read the entire book. To specifically encourage elementary and middle-school-age reluctant children to read, there is first a pitch to get the reader’s attention. That is followed by a short reading passage to “set the hook” and encourage the young person to read the rest of the book on their own. Further, the book contains several hundred additional recommended titles. The books selected for this collection were chosen following the criteria of reluctant reader books created by the Quick Picks committee sponsored by the Young Adult Library Services Association. While these guidelines were designed for young adult books, they also work well for middle-grade books. The criteria include: clear writing (no convoluted long sentences with sophisticated vocabulary), high interest “hook” in the first few pages, well-defined characters, interesting plot, and familiar themes.

One time, my dad told me a story that is very relevant to attitudes.There was a fisherman whose house faced the ocean. One day he took his boat and went fishing. Suddenly, the waves flipped the boat. The fisherman desperately called out for help. Some people heard him, and they came and saved his life. After they saved him, he went home and asked a friend if he could help him block the window that looked out at the ocean. Every time he looked through that window, he remembered the awful danger that he had faced. His friend looked at him and said you should ask me to make this window wider, because every time you look at the ocean you will remember the great miracle and rejoice. Here, there were two people and each one looked at this situation with a different attitude
