Planet Urth (Book 1)

***ON SALE FOR A LIMITED TIME***

The world has changed. It's dangerous, deadly. Inhuman creatures rule the planet. Animals have mutated. The land is hostile. But it's all I've ever known. Hunger. Fear. Panic. Those emotions are my reality. They are my every day. I am Avery, and I am seventeen. My father died a year ago. Since then I've been responsible for my eight-year-old sister, June.

I worry we are the only humans left.

Humans have been hunted for centuries, to the brink of extinction. I must fight each day to protect my sister. It is the reason I wake, the reason I breathe. But how long can I go on fighting? How long will it be before they find us?

More than two hundred years into the future, human beings are an endangered species. The planet has been battered by war, its inhabitants plagued by disease and death. Few humans survived and remained unaffected. Most changed dramatically and evolved into something else entirely. Irrevocable alterations caused by chemical warfare have created a new species. North America is in ruins and has been overtaken. Humanity has fallen at the hands of mutants known as Urthmen.

Seventeen year-old Avery is alive and unchanged. But she has not been immune to the harshness of the new world. She has lived on the run for much of her life, in terror.

After losing her father, Avery is the sole guardian of her eight-year-old sister, June. Avery is now charged with June's safety as well as her own, a nearly impossible task.

Forced to hide deep in the forest and away from the cities overrun by Urthmen, Avery and her sister are constantly hunted. Danger awaits them at every turn. They fear they are the only human beings left, that they are the last of their kind.

But are they truly alone?

But Avery soon learns that life beyond the woods is far worse than she ever imagined. She finds that safety does not exist for human beings in a world run by Urthmen.

Hope seems futile.

But Avery refuses to surrender hope and chooses, instead, to push forward and move her group into the heart of danger, to seek out more humans.

Will she and the others survive their journey into the savage lands of Planet Urth?

They need to find fuel so that they can travel across the country to the underground city, to a place where humans live safely, free from the terrors above ground.

The Splitting Earth (Zukopal Book 1)

Rok loves to meditate, and is building a private temple away from the castle so he can find peace from the bustle of family life. There is only one rule: the temple must be made of materials only from the earth, nothing else.

That won't be a problem. Not for him. Because Rok isn't a normal little boy. No, not at all. He is a demigod: a quarter of the blood in his veins is the blood of the gods. His heritage grants him power over the earth and its many elements--over stone and soil and the deep, dark, hidden ores. Just like his three siblings, Rok has a unique magical power.

However, it isn't all meditation and peace in Zuuland. Unknown to Rok and his family, his father's vengeful brother Labec lurks in the shadows with his two children, Coltin and Menga. Uncle Labec is consumed by the desire to steal the greatest treasure of Rok's father, King Nyark: the ZUKOPAL, a mysterious and powerful opal ring that shimmers with all the colors of the rainbow.

But it isn't just power Uncle Labec seeks. His motivations run far deeper. Labec is the yin to King Nyark's yang. He seeks a balancing of light and dark, and even more--revenge for past wrongs. Will Rok and his siblings be able to bring peace between their father and uncle? Or will the Zukopal drive them even further apart?

Pre-order Zukopal 2.0: The Four Elements; which continues the story told by Rok's three other siblings - to be released July 14 and available for pre-order! https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07D5GG5HJ

Kota Lee has been trying for weeks to get the girl up the street to notice him. She's beautiful and intriguing, but seems incredibly shy. Too shy. Every time he tries to get close, she dodges him, like a skittish little bird, flittering away out of his reach.

Embassy Row: Before the Fall: Arrival

Don't miss this free, bonus short story from New York Times bestselling author Ally Carter's brand-new series, Embassy Row.

Product Description:

Grace Blakely is absolutely certain of three things:

1. She is not crazy.

2. Her mother was murdered.

3. Someday she is going to find the killer and make him pay.

As certain as Grace is about these facts, nobody else believes her - so there's no one she can completely trust. Not her grandfather, a powerful ambassador. Not her new friends, who all live on Embassy Row. Not Alexei, the Russian boy next door, who is keeping his eye on Grace for reasons she neither likes nor understands.

Everybody wants Grace to put on a pretty dress and a pretty smile, blocking out all her unpretty thoughts. But they can't control Grace - no more than Grace can control what she knows or what she needs to do. Her past has come back to hunt her . . . and if she doesn't stop it, Grace isn't the only one who will get hurt. Because on Embassy Row, the countries of the world stand like dominoes, and one wrong move can make them all fall down.

See: Whispers of the Damned: Ghostly Games

I never had a problem with ghosts, with anything paranormal. It's part of the teen angst that frames my life. Don't get me wrong--I'm not hung up on some romantic gothic cliche. I'm not even trying to say I have supernatural powers. I just see what you can't. Hear what you can't.

My truth? It's easier to believe in the dead, trapped by demons and freed by angels, than the fantasy of ordinary life circling in loops of routine as the one and only reality.

There's a war of survival lurking in the unseen. Some of it's internal, some isn't.

When I understood darkness was feeding on those trapped, I had a moral hitch. Was it survival of the fittest, or the beginning of the end?

Standing up for the wretched cost me everything.

My story begins now.

From Readers

"This book reminded me of why I love reading: I get to experience things I never could in real life.

I imagine this book being like a mix of the movies Treasure Planet and Aladdin, if that makes sense. Great movies. Though the imagery in a book can never live up to those movies without slowing the pace to a grinding halt, he gave just enough to remind me of those worlds." - GoodReads Review

"An action packed, well-paced journey into a new world. While it stands on its own (and could easily be a continuing series) I am eagerly anticipating what comes next in its companion series, Dorian Delmontez." - Amazon Review

Children and the Media - Kids and technology (Special edition)

Children and the media - kids and Technology combo - The need for limits by Hearts and Minds Media

Kids and Technology - Nature vs Nurture?

It seems these days that kids are operating electronic devices such as smartphones practically moments after being born. Just take a look around any local playgroup or playground: You'll be likely to see kids as young as 2 or even younger clutching mom or dad's phone to play games or view videos. When it comes to technology, kids are not only starting to use it at a younger age but are using it in more varied situations, both at home and at school. The media machine is changing daily utilising new technologies to stimulate, surprise and saturate not only older but the next generation on new methods of living and experiencing life. It is a force to be reckoned with, with the ability to influence actions and behaviour at least through modelling behaviour leading to desensitisation towards sex, violence with the verbal content of this new medium. The BBFC for example is the UK watchdog towards inappropriate content in film and TV which refrains from following its own standards of content rarely cutting or removing a film from the UK market (10 films only banned in the past 10 years; BBFC, 2017)

Kids and Technology - Nature vs Nurture?

Media and digital devices are an integral part of our world today. The benefits of these devices, if used moderately and appropriately, can be great. But, research has shown that face-to-face time with family, friends, and teachers plays a pivotal and even more important role in promoting children's learning and healthy development. Keep the face-to-face up front, and don't let it get lost behind a stream of media and tech.

EDUCATION - "First-hand experiences... can help to make subjects more vivid and interesting for

pupils and enhance their understanding... [and] could make an important contribution to pupils'

future economic wellbeing and to preparing them for the next stage of their lives." (Ofsted, 2008)

HEALTH AND WELLBEING - "Children increase their physical activity levels when outdoors and are

attracted to nature... All children with ADHD [Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder] may benefit

from more time in contact with nature..." (Bird, 2007)

PERSONAL AND SOCIAL SKILLS - "Experience of the outdoors and wild adventure space has the

potential to confer a wide range of benefits on young people... Development of a positive self-image,

confidence in one's abilities and experience of dealing with uncertainty can be important in helping

young people face the wider world and develop enhanced social skills.". It identifies four specific types of impact: COGNITIVE IMPACTS - concerning knowledge, understanding and

other academic outcomes. AFFECTIVE IMPACTS - encompassing attitudes, values, beliefs and selfperceptions. INTERPERSONAL AND SOCIAL IMPACTS - including communication skills, leadership and

teamwork. PHYSICAL AND BEHAVIOURAL IMPACTS - relating to physical fitness, physical skills,

personal behaviours and social actions. Looking more closely at cognitive impacts, "both students

and their teachers reported increases in knowledge and understanding as a result of experiences in

the outdoor classroom. Whenever students were asked about their learning, they were generally able to explain something that they had seen, learned or understood on the visits... Developments in knowledge and understanding appeared to be from across a range of cognitive domains" (Dillon et

al, 2005).

Ruin

I'm not your typical girl. I've been running away from the memories that haunt me for so long that the shroud of depression has become my only comfort.

He tried to warn me and promised me what he was able to offer, each moment as it came, but it would never be enough. Sometimes you have to laugh to keep from crying. And when you think it's the end, the final curtain, sometimes that's only the beginning. Wes thought he could save me, but in giving me everything, he ruined me.

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain is an 1876 novel about a young boy growing up along the Mississippi River. The story is set in the fictional town of St. Petersburg, inspired by Hannibal, Missouri, where Twain lived. Tom Sawyer lives with his Aunt Polly and his half-brother Sid. Tom dirties his clothes in a fight and is made to whitewash the fence the next day as punishment. He cleverly persuades his friends to trade him small treasures for the privilege of doing his work. He then trades the treasures for Sunday School tickets which one normally receives for memorizing verses, redeeming them for a Bible, much to the surprise and bewilderment of the superintendent who thought "it was simply preposterous that this boy had warehoused two thousand sheaves of Scriptural wisdom on his premises-a dozen would strain his capacity, without a doubt." Tom falls in love with Becky Thatcher, a new girl in town, and persuades her to get "engaged" by kissing him. But their romance collapses when she learns Tom has been "engaged" previously to Amy Lawrence. Shortly after Becky shuns him, he accompanies Huckleberry Finn to the graveyard at night, where they witness the murder of Dr. Robinson.

Haven's Knight

When I was a little girl, I believed in fairy tales. I believed in princes and princesses and knights in shining armor. I believed in forever and happily ever afters. I was ten when reality hit me.

I'm drowning in reality, in my life, and I've given up hope that a knight in shining armor will rescue me. But maybe...maybe I don't need a Prince Charming after all.
