  TEDDY LO VES SPAGETTI The story of Teddy, the Cat Without Ears Continues !!! Published by Animal House Press and available in paperback!     The Adventure of Teddy series, are all non-fiction stories for children and families about my real-life rescue cat named Teddy.

All of the books in the series will highlight educational points about pet care, support inclusivity and celebrate being different, together. Teddy Loses His Ears is the introduction book into the series, and touches on self esteem and disability awareness as we fielded many questions about Teddy's abnormality while emphasizing his beauty and purpose, despite injury.

  Welcome to fellow BWL Publishing author, Mikki Sadil! I'm so thrilled to have her on my blog to share her work with you all! I started writing when I was a child, having my first poem at the age of 10 published in our largest newspaper, the Houston Chronicle. (Of course, it may have helped that my mother was the Children's Editor at the time...) Since that time, I have published more than 60 short stories, articles, and poetry for Young Adults. I have also published five books for YA and one new book, a Cozy Mystery, for adults. In my life other than an author, I have been a professor of law and a professional horse breeder, trainer, and rancher. I currently live on the Central Coast of California and am a widow.   FaceBook:  https://www.facebook.com/mikki.sadil Blog:   https://authormikkisadil.blogspot.com/ Mikki’s books are published by Books We Love Publishing Inc: https://www.bookswelove.com/sadil-mikki/ What would you say are your strengths as an author? I th

Kay Dee launches her new novel The Entrapment

  I was fortunate to meet Kay at a local author event and am currently reading her book. Definitely an eye-opener! Hello my name is Kay Dee. My most important role is being a mom to my young daughter. I enjoy sports however my all time favourite is soccer. I was a police officer for ten years and went through a very tumultuous time which included varies levels of the criminal justice system. I am a first time author and truly I don’t consider myself an “author” like most. I wrote my book “The Entrapment” as a means of closure. It was intended to put my negative experience behind me, get things off my chest, and ultimately sooth my soul, which is exactly what it did. I consider my book to be raw and personal, opposed to polished and refined like some of the other more experienced professional authors. My book helped me in my healing process, and if I can interest others through sharing my experiences then I am happy to do so.   THE ENTRAPMENT An integrity play designed to bring down a d

  I didn't share at the beginning of this year's NaNo journey, but I'd like to follow up now! Yes, for yet another year I took the challenge to write 50,000 words in 30 days. Crazy? Maybe. The great part is, I always seem to get a pretty good book out of the deal. A few have been published such as Drop Dead Cowboy and Dead Man's Doll - yup, both were contest books!  To buy:  http://bookswelove.net/bator-diane/ After just over three weeks of writing, I've mostly finished a new Glitter Bay Mystery, All That Shimmers. For those of you following the series, Laken has moved into the apartment above her sister's shop, Vintage Sage, but has what she thinks are critters in her attic. Wait. She has an attic? Yup!  Just one of many things she finds out starting the day she discovers her ex-husband, B-List actor Emery Samson, lying face down in the courtyard behind Vintage Sage. Following Emery's sudden death, Laken meets the new Chief of Police, Gavin McKelvey, and t

The augments referred to in the title are brain-computer interfaces (BCI)—small computerized devices directly linking our brains to powerful processors and even the internet. That’s the direction Overton sees consumer technology going within the next two decades, and we’ll need to be prepared.   Human brains with direct access to the internet. What could go wrong?   Since the age of fourteen Damon Leiter has had a brain-computer interface implanted beneath his skull to correct a neurological disorder.
