Costume Party #1 @MarylSchmidt #ASMSG #SCBWI

“Shadow and Friends Costume Party” hit number one on Amazon early this morning! Michael and I are both deeply humbled that our book was such a hit around the world. Literacy is truly everything and to have so many children love reading our books, as we have seen on social media, is awesome. Mike loved one little girl’s accent down in Trinidad as he listened. We both wore smiles in knowing that we are helping with free books to help with literacy around the world.

Beneath the Poison Tree

From Amazon: Dawn, a woman unfulfilled and living her life vicariously through her sister, has found a way to come to terms with her lot, investing all her energy into maintaining the close family ties – strong bonds that are complex and not how they appear to others. When faced with the shock of betrayal, threatening to derail all she holds precious, Dawn commits an unspeakable act – one that goes undetected but, later, comes back to haunt her. A tragic accident brings an unexpected turn in her life and, in its aftermath, an opportunity for Dawn to realise her dreams. But fate has other things in store and she is unprepared for the arrival of a stranger, whose untimely intrusion wreaks havoc with her plans. Can Dawn dispose of the problem as she’s done in the past, or are the obstacles too great? A family drama, steeped in suspense, that delves into the mind of a woman obsessed and the lengths she will go to when her life starts to unravel.

My Review: Beneath the Poison Tree was not what I expected. Wow. Just wow. This book is tightly woven with drama and suspense aplenty. The author definitely got into the sick psychology of the antagonist in this five star read! Dawn, the antagonist, is truly obsessed, and the more I read, the more I wondered about life and realized this novel has the makings for a great movie!

My Time With Papa

From Amazon: This is a loving story about a little girl who lost her Papa and finds a way to remember all the wonderful memories she had of him that she will cherish forever. Walk down memory lane and recapture the memories of lost loved ones from the imagination of a young girl.

My Review: Endearing Book for kids for sure. I found this book to be completely endearing in my heart and soul. A child loses her father to heaven, but she finds out that he still lives in with her through memories. Five stars.
