Welcome to the update and we begin with an offer from Karen Ingalls whose book, Outshine: An Ovarian Cancer Memoir is FREE from 4th – 8th June. You can also obtain signed copies direct from Karen for only $2.99 on firstname.lastname@example.org. Karen is celebrating nine years clear of cancer and all proceeds go to research into this life threatening and certainly life changing disease.
When Karen Ingalls was diagnosed with Stage IIC ovarian cancer, she realized how little she knew about what is called “the silent killer.” As Ingalls began to educate herself she felt overwhelmed by the prevalent negativity of cancer. Lost in the information about drugs, side effects, and statistics, she redirected her energy to focus on the equally overwhelming blessings of life, learning to rejoice in each day and find peace in spirituality.
In this memoir, Karen is a calming presence and positive companion, offering a refreshing perspective of hope with the knowledge that “the beauty of the soul, the real me and the real you, outshines the effects of cancer, chemotherapy, and radian. It is a story of survival and reminds readers that disease is not an absolute, but a challenge to recover.
One of the recent reviews for the book on Goodreads
Outshine is an Oavarian Cancer survivor’s memoir full of inspiration and hope. The author shares her journey from diagnosis to cure and the part her strong faith played in that process. This book would prove useful for those suffering from cancer as well as their caregivers and significant others. One line I love is, ‘… attitude, acceptance, and determination are important factors in healing the body, mind, and spirit.’ The writer learnt many life lessons along the way and shares these unashamedly for the reader’s benefit. At the end of the book, the author includes helpful questions, signs and symptoms, and a list of resources. Well written and honest, this is a book that can find a place on any shelf.

Our next author to update is Janice Spina with her latest children’s book. Jeffrey the Jittery Giraffe released a few days ago and illustrated by John Spina.
About the book
Jeffrey is a nervous giraffe due to a terrible storm on the day of his birth. He remembers that day and is frightened of any kind of noise or unexpected things happening to him. His mother tells him that he is stronger than he thinks. One day Jeffrey meets another giraffe who needs his help. Read this story in rhyme and find out what important lesson Jeffrey learns when he thinks of others before himself.
An early review
Jeffrey is a nervous young giraffe because he constantly remembers the day when he was born. There was a loud, scary thunderstorm that day so any noise at all made Jeffrey afraid. His mama taught him a little rhyme to repeat whenever he was scared, but it didn’t seem to help. One day something happens that changes everything for him and Jeffrey learns an important lesson. This is another delightful book by Janice Spina and children will love it. They’ll enjoy learning about Jeffrey’s problem, and especially about the valuable solution. I highly recommend this entertaining story. Reviewed by children’s author, Deanie Humphrys-Dunne

One of the recent reviews for Destiny of Kings on Amazon
This is the first book in the Covenant of Kings trilogy. A fast paced Biblical tale of King David, his battle with Goliath and his affair with a married woman, Bathsheba.. Lots of suspense, emotion, witchcraft, revenge and drama. I received this book during a free promotion and voluntarily chose to review it. I really enjoyed this book and think you will also.
