Our 15th title: AND SOMETIMES Y

Hooray! And Sometimes Y, the sequel to The Howling Vowels, is now available!

Happy Birthday to Alexa, the main character in this series. Happy Birthday also to JJM, the co-author of this book and the inspiration for the character of Alexa!

I love this book. When I read the first story of Alexa several years ago, I was instantly taken back to my own childhood days of reading the Little House on the Prairie books. Set primarily in today's small-town Minnesota, these books show us about modern friendships and life circumstances and how they can grow. I love this new book since we get to see Alexa at age thirteen, three years older than in the first book. The rest of the Vowels have aged, too, and their friendships have grown in really interesting ways. I'm crossing my fingers that we'll get to see Alexa and her friends again in a few more years. :)

And Sometimes Y

More Adventures of the Howling Vowels!

Welcome back to Sundog, Minnesota! In the three years since their adventures in The Howling Vowels, Alexa Stevens and her four friends have each grown and changed, but they are still as close as ever. It’s April, and they are looking forward to a spring and summer filled with riding horses, playing with dogs, hanging out at the pool and the library, and finishing a big project: making their own movie, complete with music, scenery, and costumes! But when a new boy moves to town—a boy who has no friends—will they be able to penetrate his mysterious exterior and welcome him in?

A = Alexa A lover of words, questions, and animals, she is quirky and sprightly and wants to know everything so that she can know the whole story.

E = Eduardo Tall, approachable, and calm, he loves magic, performance, and tales of adventure, and it’s easy for him to find common ground with new people.

I = Isabelle Small of stature but great of heart, she is skilled in making beautiful things and committed to speaking up for what is kind and true and reaching out to anyone in need.

O = Otto Likeable and funny, and always in motion, he always means well, but sometimes his foot leaves the stage and ends up in his mouth.

U = Ursula Strong and brave, she returns from ten months on the island of Ireland more daring and determined than ever, filled with passions for horses and steampunk.

And then there’s Y…

Y = Yves Brooding and sometimes rude, he carries a foreigner’s suspicion of this Midwestern town and a battered sense of himself. Will he be his own worst enemy? Or will he break through the confusing signals and oscillating impressions he sends? Will he win new friends?

NOVEL CONCEPT is now an Audiobook!

When we received an audition from Melissa Strom for the voice talent of Novel Concept, we were incredibly excited! We immediately knew that she had to be the one to read this book! Melissa's voice has got to be one of the best girl voices around. Her voice acting pulls you in and immerses you in the story immediately. Plus, she's been on Monk. 😉

I'm excited to announce that Novel Concept by Teagan Bentley is now available as an audiobook read by Melissa Strom. It is available on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes. Plus, it's less than $4! What a deal!

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.
