TWO BOOK Virtual Book Release Party!

Whoo-Hoo!

We're so excited here at Do Life Right, Inc. to have HomeschoolLiterature.com host a one-day virtual book release party for both THE HOWLING VOWELS and FRACTURED FATE today--Wednesday, November 16, 2011.

When asked recently which of these two books was my favorite, I had to answer honestly: I couldn't possibly choose! Each is so unique in its own way.

THE HOWLING VOWELS by Leslie Schultz, illustrated by Heather Newman, is such a lovely middle-grade novel (set in a fictional town in Minnesota) that it makes me smile in a nostalgic sort-of way. To read more about Leslie, click here. To read more about Heather, click here.

FRACTURE FATE by Caja Coyote, illustrated by Sage Echo Sirotkin, is so full of action, adventure, superheroes, and romance, that it takes me to a different world (all while being set in a real-life town in Arizona). To read more about Caja Coyote, click here.

Meet Caja Coyote!

Caja Coyote is celebrating this weekend with their book release party for Fractured Fate on 11/11/11 from 7-9PM at the Sahuarita Arts Center: 18825 S. La Canada, Sahuarita, AZ 85629! There will be light snacks (made by one of the authors, a budding baker!), games, a craft, and even a chance to win a Fractured Fate bag or pin!

This will be a unique opportunity for readers like you to get a SIGNED copy by all five authors, along with their customized "Caja Coyote" signature. In the future, you'll only be able to get just the customized signature and not the actual author's signatures.

If you can't make it to the party, you'll get a second chance to meet these five fantastic young authors at the Sahuarita Pecan Festival from 10AM-8PM on Saturday, 11/12/2011 at their booth.

To find out more about Fractured Fate and Caja Coyote, be sure to "Like" them on Facebook and check out their growing website.

Our ninth title: THE HOWLING VOWELS

I'm super excited to announce the middle-grade novel, The Howling Vowels, as the latest addition to the Do Life Right, Inc. catalog. When I first read the manuscript, I said to myself, "Wow! This is a modern Little House type of book about a very realistic homeschooler of today!" With lots of love and hard work, author Leslie Schultz has perfected this modern tale of the homeschooling life in Minnesota, and illustrator Heather Newman (of Cody Greene and the Rainbow Mystery) has turned these sweet characters to life with her lovely illustrations.

From the back cover:

“Look! Five vowels, all howling!”

Welcome to Sundog, Minnesota! When homeschooled, Norse-myth-obsessed Alexa Stevens moves from New York City, she doesn’t know what to expect. What is a small town like? Explore a new landscape with Alexa as she observes wolves in the wild and forms a close pack of friends.

Meet A, Alexa: a lover of words and questions, quirky and sprightly, she wants to know everything so she can know the whole story; Meet E, Eduardo: tall and mysterious, with a streak of sadness, he speaks Alexa’s language and has a few tricks up his sleeve; Meet I, Isabelle: quiet and tiny, with big eyes that take everything in, she is good with her hands and good to confide in; Meet O, Otto: always in motion, with laughing eyes, he dances his way into Alexa’s heart; Meet U, Ursula: strong and headstrong, Ursula has a lot on her shoulders as she dreams of adventure and making her own way in life.

Join city girl Alexa as she tastes unfamiliar seasons, comes to know her friends, really sees herself, and discovers her own way to make her mark on the world.
