THE LANGUAGE THEATER by Maria Beatty (bookbaby)

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by GlennBeatty (author): WE WANT TO GET THE WORD OUT ABOUT THE LANGUAGE THEATER: A revolutionary, fun way to learn English Grammar for children and Adults. Ten free Ebooks will help spread the word

Maria Beatty wrote this book the help the world communicate better: to help children."The better the grammar, the better the communication." You tell me who has a better a shot at the best communication: The person who learned by ear or the person who knows who language works structurally?

Description: “Language is a theater. The words are the actors.”
Denis Diderot, 18th Century Philosopher

In this “visual learning environment”, THE LANGUAGE THEATER literally “acts out” Diderot’s theme. Our theater director, Theo the Grammarian, introduces our exciting parts–of-speech “actors” who take the stage one-by-one to show and tell us what they do and how they interact. The “actors” perform via dynamic, whimsical illustrations that work seamlessly with the text and make us smile as we learn the nuts and bolts of the English language through these "theatrical” picture lessons. Lessons are followed by a few short exercises and a summary.

Freedom's Blood / Like Mother, Like Daughters by Phil Giunta (Firebringer Press)

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by pgiunta (author): Unlike my previous novels, this particular title was afforded less promotional effort when it was released in November 2018, despite a successful crowdfunding campaign and effusive reviews by advance readers. I am happy to give away copies in exchange for reviews, as I'm confident that fans of the paranormal and vampire genres will find this double novel exciting.

In the past, I managed giveaways on other sites as well as two crowdfunding campaigns, so I am accustomed to shipping books quickly. Thank you for your participation!

Description: Ghosts, Vampires, and American History...

Firebringer Take Two combines Steven H. Wilson's vampire tale, FREEDOM'S BLOOD with Phil Giunta's paranormal mystery, LIKE MOTHER, LIKE DAUGHTERS in the spirit of the classic ACE double novel (read one story, flip the book over and read the other).

In LIKE MOTHER, LIKE DAUGHTERS, fans and new readers will see the return of psychic-medium single mom Miranda Lorensen from Phil's previous novels (Testing the Prisoner and By Your Side)... and this time, she's bringing her daughter.

After her lover is found murdered during a paranormal investigation, Andrea Lorensen is determined to find the killer—with some help from her lover's ghost. Meanwhile, her mother Miranda travels to Salem, Massachusetts where she reunites with the gentle spirit of a young woman executed for witchcraft in 1692. This time, however, the encounter reveals an astonishing truth about Miranda's past life—a truth that could kill her.

But wait! There's more!

You're a vampire, but you have an unyielding belief in the sanctity of the individual's rights. How do you survive, if you can't take blood without permission? And what do you do when someone offers you his blood... with strings attached? This humorous tale explores the ethics of being a vampire—or even just a creature that's gotta eat—against the background of a developing America. Starting out in Colonial Maryland and carrying on through the 21st Century, FREEDOM'S BLOOD will perhaps amuse, perhaps enrage, and will certainly introduce you to a vampire like none you've ever encountered.

"A two-tale treat for fans of things that go bump in the night — starting with an appetizer about a vampire gnawing on an ethical dilemma, seasoned with macabre wit; and then serving a multi-course, multi-generational entree of ghostly mystery. So sit down, if you dare, to a supernatural double helping, but be forewarned: If you tend to read home alone after twilight, do so at your peril. "— Howard Weinstein, New York Times bestselling author of Galloway's Gamble

"A triumph of a story putting a delightful spin on vampire myths. Witticism from the main character keeps the reader engaged to find out where he will go or what will happen next. I feel I want to pluck this character out of the story and journey with him as long as I'm not his next entrée. A sequel to this vampire is a must. Steven Wilson can add me as a fan of his work." — Dawn Sooy, author of From the Darkness

The Search for Tzanáta by Wendy Gillissen (Booklocker)

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by Fantasyharper (author): This sequel has taken a long time to arrive - to celebrate its publication and allow readers who enjoyed its predecessor, Curse of the Tahiéra a chance to enjoy it, I am organizing this Giveaway. As an independent author, I value reviews enormously. This is also a chance for me as an author to learn of readers' experiences with the ongoing Tahiéra series. I can’t wait to hear what you think. Enjoy!

(Though The Search for Tzanáta can be read as a standalone, I would advise reading Curse of the Tahiéra first: the story will be more enjoyable.)

Description: The Search for Tzanáta is the sequel to the award-winning spiritual adventure, Curse of the Tahiéra.

Seven years after his sudden disappearance, Yldich has a disturbing dream that brings him back to the House of the Deer. Slender ships are appearing at the coast and they seem eerily familiar.

Meanwhile, Rom leads a tranquil existence among the Einache of the high North. But, all is not what it seems. While he still struggles with his Tzanatzi magic, disturbing tidings come from the South.

The last Tzanatzi are disappearing and nothing remains except their bones…

Hezada! I Miss You by Erin Pringle (Awst Press)

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by Erin_Pringle (author): Because the pandemic changed the course of the 2020 book tour, I want to offer Hezada! here to those more likely to have discovered it in the old fashioned way of browsing libraries and bookstores.

Description: The last Midwestern traveling circus is due to arrive in a rural village it has visited for a century of summers. Like the village, the circus is on its last leg. It’s down to one elephant and a handful of acrobats. The circus boss’s sweetheart is dying. The former starring act is recovering from cancer. The assistant, Frank, plans to retire after this show. Meanwhile, twins Heza and Abe wander the hot fields and roads, waiting for the circus or anything better. Hezada! I Miss You is a novel that explores tradition, love, and suicide—set under the fading tents of small-town America and the circus.

"It's haunting. It's lovely. It's an utterly painful and beautiful look at how life passes. Exploring the consequences of a suicide from those intimately involved to those on the sidelines, Pringle's unflinching view sets a summer circus as a backdrop for everything lost when life is gone." - The Austin Chronicle
