Chronicles of Steele: Raven: The Complete Story #BookTour

I think I'd like to read these books. I've been sharing about them for awhile now and they seem rather interesting.

Are you reading anything interesting?

Come share with us in the Chronicles of Steele: Raven: The Complete Story #BookTour

RavenTourBannerRaven_ebookPromoThis is the complete Steampunk Fantasy novel – all four parts of the serial in one volume! Human life has value. The poor living in the gutter is as valuable as the rich living in a manor. The scoundrel is no less valuable than the saint. Because of this, every life a reaper takes must be redeemed. Raven has lived by this first tenet since she was trained by her father to become a reaper.

But since his death, she’s been spending years redeeming the lives she’s taken. By her count, she’s even and it’s time for that life to end. If she settles down and becomes a wife, she might just feel human again. But on the way to the life she thinks she wants, the baron of New Haven asks her to complete a task which she cannot ignore… Just when Raven decides to give up on her life as an assassin, she’s pulled right back in.

HowtobemanlybabberHow To Be ManlyWhen Fatty Matty Sullivan finds a self-help book by former football great Tad Manly at a yard sale, he secretly starts following the old pro’s advice to get in shape and get the girl. Summer goals: lose the milkshake weight, join the football team, and turn himself into the kind of guy super hot Cassie Bale will love.

 But between taking care of his grandfather, trying to pass remedial Algebra, and getting caught up in his friend Jester’s half-baked weed-dealing schemes, Matty’s summer isn’t quite the game-changer he’d planned. When on top of it all his dad moves back in with his own plans to get rich quick, Matty suddenly has much bigger things to worry about than football and whether or not Cassie’s going to call him back. And it turns out that there might be more to being manly than he thought. Maureen O’Leary Wanket’s debut is a sharp, comic novel about trying to do the right thing… even when you’re not sure what that is.

Carole P. Roman $200 Amazon & Kindle Books #Giveaway

Carole is such a good author. My children have always enjoyed her books!
We are such variety readers here at our house! I love it!

Come enter for your chance to win in the Carole P. Roman $200 Amazon & Kindle Books #Giveaway event!



I miss going to our library as often as we could. Seems schedules are conflicting now. I might have to go to the other library that is farther away , but has more options for opening hours. 

There are many more Carole books that my kids would love to keep reading. 

Do you have any of her books? 

Award winning author Carole P. Roman has recently published two new books for her
"Captain No Beard" series and for her "If You Were Me and Lived In..." series. These two series teach important life's lessons and help children to imagine places and things outside of their own space.



Captain No Beard and his crew of loyal pirates heave anchor for another adventure, this time in the icy waters of the Arctic. Captain No Beard's steering a course due north, sailing by the light of the North Star. Everyone on the crew wonders what the captain's up to, especially as he gets embarrassed when they ask. When the captain finally admits his plan, the crew discovers he plans to steal the aurora borealis, the beautiful northern lights that brighten the arctic sky. They're all shocked. They may be pirates, but even they know stealing is bad. Besides, how can anyone steal the lights from the sky? A charming, engaging tale about doing what's right.



 In If You Were Me and Lived in…Greece , early learners get a taste of what their life would be like if they lived in Greece while being introduced to the birthplace of democracy. This book is the latest installment of the educational series about the cultures of the world that speaks to young children about the topics that interest them, such as the foods people eat, the names of boys and girls, and the activities that children their age living in a foreign land are likely to engage in. This exciting visit to Greece also introduces the important concept of democracy to children and highlights some of the other cultural contributions that Greece has made to Western civilization. Basic information is offered in a playful way that won’t overwhelm children.
Carole P. Roman is giving away a Kindle copy of each of these books and $200 Amazon to one very lucky winner. If you would like to win this, enter in the Rafflecopter below for your chance.
Disclosure: JamericanSpice was asked to promote this giveaway on behalf of Carole P. Roman and Away We Go Media. Carole P. Roman is responsible for prize shipment.
