The Buzz

Riley’s Lost Tooth: “The book is well written and the illustrations are beautiful. The book will definitely appeal to all children (including children at heart like this reviewer) and their parents / grandparents / elder siblings and other care givers. The book is strongly recommended as a good gift that is educational and also entertaining.” ~ 5 Star Review, S.V. Swamy, Amazon

Good-bye Baby Max: “This book is amazing! I have given it as several gifts to my friends with children. It is very well written and the illustrations are fun and colorful. This book it a great tool to help parents and teachers talk to children about loss of a pet and a loved one in general. I would highly recommend this book to everyone!” ~ 5 Star Review, Dawn N., Amazon

Good-bye Baby Max: “This colorful, hardcover children’s title Good-bye, Baby Max (Bridgeway Books, Texas, 2007) by Diane Cantrell & Heather Castles is special in its purpose of teaching an invaluable lesson: that of properly saying the final farewell to a loved one who is no more … Diane Cantrell has created a very purposeful book for children-one that is at once a story, a poem, and a healthy course of helping children get over grief. The book’s illustrations by Heather Castles are very appealing to a child’s imagination. There is a good deal here in Good-bye, Baby Max to learn for children ages 4 to 8 years and the 32-pages book is a must read for all kids of this age category.” ~ Ernest Dempsey, Book Corner

Good-bye Baby Max: “I bought this book to help my nieces and nephews deal with the loss of a beloved pet. The storyline and illustrations were used as a springboard to discuss their own loss. I highly recommend this book to anyone that has young children and is looking for a way to help them cope with a loss in their lives.” ~ 5 Star Review, Jeanne B., Amazon

Good-bye Baby Max: “[Good-bye, Baby Max] is a tender story about death, a tough topic for young children. Kindergarteners eagerly await spring and the hatching of the class’ three chick eggs. But one chick, Max, dies. What ensues is a gentle exploration of grief and its many expressions — from tears to songs to artwork. At the end, the surviving chicks’ peeps encourage the children to embrace the living without forgetting the dead.” ~ Michele Siuda Jacques, Detroit Free Press

Diane Cantrell began her career in education teaching Pre-K, Kindergarten, and Transitional First Grade. She also worked as a counselor providing assistance to parenting teens in a local school district.

Diane’s time at Fort Sam Houston I.S.D. provided inspiration for Good-bye, Baby Max. The book, which is based on a true story, describes how Ms. B helps her kindergarten class cope with the loss of a classroom pet. At the time Diane wrote the book she was working with many children who were experiencing a great deal of loss in their lives. Her hope in writing Good-bye, Baby Max was that the story would help parents, children, and other caring professionals begin talking about losses rather than responding to their losses from a state of fear. Her second book, Riley’s Lost Tooth, was written for her granddaughter, Riley as a Valentine’s Day present. Mr. Lee, and Sunday are main characters in the book as is Precious, who died before the book was written.

When Diane is not involved in writing or listening to people’s stories, she enjoys being with her husband, Rich, and their two dogs, Sunday and Mr. Lee. Diane and Rich live in San Antonio, Texas.

No Spend Money February!

no-spend-month-296x300Anyone up for a real challenge this February!?!?  Don’t spend any money for the entire month of February!

Starting today, I’m initiating a “No Spend Month” (I got the idea Common Sense with Money, check out their blog here!) for my husband and I – spending money on the absolute necessities and adding to our savings.

We’re up for the challenge…are you???

What is a “No Spend Month?”

  • A No Spend Month to me means that my husband and I will not spend any money unless its a necessity — which includes paying the regular bills, weekly groceries, gas, medical expenses and co-pays, and work-related expenses.
  • Any emergency expenses would be exempt from the “no spend month.”
  • Also, I think its fair to give yourself a small allowance, of , say $20 a week for incidentals, like picking up fresh groceries, a beverage, parking, etc.

How am I preparing for my “No Spend Month?”

  • As I mentioned above, I will give myself an allowance for incidentals and stick to it each week.
  • I work long hours, I plan to prepare my meals and take them with me to work and not buy my meals out.  I can do this easily by prepping my salad ingredients at the beginning of the week and just tossing a salad together each morning.
  • Go Public!  I’ve learned accountability goes a long way!  By putting myself out there, I am much more likely to stick to plan!

Do you want to join me in the No Spend February?  What would be your goals?

 

Rubber Soul Blog Tour & Book Review

Rubber SoulRubber Soul by Greg Kihn

Greg Kihn is a rock star, seasoned radio host and author. Rubber Soul, his latest novel is inspired by intimate interviews that he conducted with Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Pete Best, Yoko Ono and Patti Harrison. Though Rubber Soul is fiction, as Greg says it is “100% historically accurate” and an candid glimpse of the phenomenon that is The Beatles.

Rubber Soul is a an innovation in the Rock Thriller genre, taking readers on a rollicking ride through The Beatles legacy from the early days in Liverpool to six sold out shows per night in Hamburg and full-fledged Beatlemania.

Dust Bin Bob runs into some lads from Liverpool at his second hand shop on Penny Lane. The lads: John, Paul, George and Ringo and Dust Bin Bob become firm friends, sharing vinyl that will spark a revolution. Murder, mystery and Beatlemania mayhem ensues—with the boys narrowly avoiding an international incident and an attempted assassination. It’s the ultimate Beatles story that could have happened!

Amazon * Barnes & Noble * Kobo

My Review

I loved “Rubber Soul!”  I found Greg Kihn’s writing to be thoroughly enjoyable, and captivating throughout the entire book.  What brought me to the book is Greg Kihn used to be a Baltimore resident, and well, that’s where I live!  Although I didn’t during the  brought the Beatles Era to me, with musicians, guitars, records, etc.  I enjoyed the name dropping (even if I had to look them up!) and how much the book was cover to back.

Praise

“There’s no one more qualified to write a rock-and-roll novel than Greg Kihn. He’s the real deal and at his Kihntillating best in this book.” – Guy Kawasaki, former chief evangelist of Apple

“Rubber Soul is a magical mystery tour de force by Greg Kihn, a rocker who obviously has a way with words as well as music. His imagined story about the Beatles is fast-moving, full of twists and tension, and musical nuggets and insights. Great story-telling set to a Fab-four beat.” – Ben Fong Torres

“Rubber Soul captures what Rock-n-Roll is all about – and Greg Kihn would certainly know! This nearly-true story of the Beatles is pure magic and I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.” – Eddie Money

“Greg Kihn is the most compelling author who ever had a top five singing career. Rubber Soul is a fantastic story by Greg, with an historical back beat. I urge you not to miss this.” – Joan Jett

“I’m happy to report that Rubber Soul, the latest work by my pal Greg Kihn, has correct punctuation, complete sentences, even full paragraphs – some of the exact same literary devices that can be found in the greatest novels our culture has ever produced! It’s also written in English, which happens to be one of my very favorite languages.” – “Weird Al” Yankovic

“While the RIAA may not be able to certify Kihn’s work with a gold disc, fans of Kihn and The Beatles, as well as those who long for the simpler yet magical time of the 1960’s will thoroughly enjoy and fall in love with Rubber Soul. They certainly don’t write ‘em like this anymore.” – Chris Shapiro, RetroPulse

Excerpt from Rubber Soul

Bobby Dingle, AKA Dust Bin Bob, runs a stall for his father’s second hand shop at the Penny Lane Flea Market in Liverpool. Bobby loves American R&B records and
collects them from the merchant marines returning from America to Albert Dock in Liverpool. He displays them in at the Flea Market.
One day he meets some amazing individuals:
Around the corner came two leather-jacketed young men, each with a pink-tipped cigarette jutting from his lips, and each with the swagger of someone who didn’t give a damn. Two James Deans. Teddy boys. They stopped in front of Bobby.
“What’s this, then?” the first one said with a thick scouse accent.
The second shrugged, looking at the prayer rug and ostrich feathers. “A mysterious visitor from the east.”
They eyed the records. “Hold on. What’s all this?”
Bobby noticed their hair; greasy, swept back, just spilling over their collars. They looked a bit scruffy with uneven sideboards and tight stovepipe trousers. The first one picked up a record and read the label.
“Chuck Berry!”
“Chuck Berry? No! It can’t be! Let me see that!”
“Blimey! Little Richard! Bo Diddley! Where did you get these?”
Bobby smiled, letting the slight gap between his front teeth show. “I have a special source, straight from America. Those are brand new releases. You can’t get ‘em anywhere else.”
“Do you have any idea what you have here?”
Bobby nodded. “Actually, yes, I do.”
“It’s the bloody Holy Grail.”
The two young men exchanged astonished glances.  “Are these for sale?”
“Yes, they are.”
The two Teddy Boys shifted on their feet.
“I’ll tell you the truth, mate. We’re in a beat group, and this is just the type of music we do. You know, American rock and roll. I’m John and this is Stu.”
John stuck out a hand. There was something in the way he stood that suggested a coolness far beyond anything Bobby had known.  Bobby accepted the hand.
“I’m Bobby. Pleased to meet you. This is my father’s stall. He’s got a secondhand store in Merseyside. We specialize in previously owned merchandise. A little of this, a bit of that; something that might have mistakenly wound up in the dust bin but is still quite serviceable.”
John barked out a laugh, then slipped into a spastic impersonation. He looked like a juvenile delinquent Quasimodo.
“Dust Bin Bob! Dust Bin Bob! Your coming was foretold to us!”
Bobby eyed John. Cheeky, he thought, very cheeky.
“So, you’re in a beat group, eh? Are you professional?”
John nodded vigorously. “Definitely professional. Oh, yes. The talk of the town, we are.”
“So you must have lots of money to buy records.”
John spat. “This is Liverpool, man. Look around you. The place is a bloody poorhouse. Nobody’s got any money, least of all the beat groups.”
Bobby shrugged. “If you don’t have money, then you can’t buy records.”
John said, “I was wondering… You think it might be possible to just hear ‘em?”
Bobby took the Chuck Berry record out of John’s hand.
“This is not a lending library. Why should I let you hear these beauties?”
“Because we need the music, man. We’re going to conquer the world, you’ll see. To the toppermost of the poppermost, and beyond. Bigger than Elvis.”
Nobody laughed. John pawed at the cracked pavement with the pointed toe of his winklepicker shoe.
“You aim to learn the songs in one sitting? That doesn’t seem possible.”
John smirked. “We’re good.”
Bobby turned to Stu.  “Is he always this cheeky?”
“It’s worse than you think,” Stu said.
Bobby rubbed his nose and looked the musicians over again.
“You say you play the music of Chuck Berry?”
“Like the man himself.”
“Little Richard?”
“Mother’s milk to us.”
“That’s bloody amazing. In all of Liverpool, Dame Fortune has sent me you. So if I let you listen to these records, what’s in it for me?”
John hunched over, playing the spastic again. He twisted his face and spoke in a crone’s voice.
“What’s in it for me? For me? Something for me, sir?”
To Bobby, John’s clowning mocked everything he stood for as an independent businessman. Bobby frowned, suddenly a shade more indignant.
“That’s right. Something for me. Is that so wrong? Bloody hell. It’s a hard life down here in the fleas. A fellah’s gotta eat.”
John straightened with a wry smile and a wink.
“You drive a hard bargain, Dust Bin Bob. How about a lifetime pass to all of our gigs, forever. That’s gotta be worth a fortune.”
Bobby snorted. “How about half a bar. From each of you.”
“Bloody embarrassing, that is. You don’t want the lifetime pass?”
“No offense, but… It can’t be worth much.”
John looked wounded.  Bobby sighed. “OK, I guess I’ll take it along with the
money.”
John brightened. “Deal!”
“I’ll need that in writing.”
“Of course, of course. You won’t regret this, Dust Bin Bob.”

gregAuthor Greg Kihn

NBC called Greg Kihn “Rock’s True Renaissance Man” and for good reason. As part of the eponymous band he has: toured the globe, had hit records, been inducted into the San Jose Rock Hall Of Fame, opened for the Rolling Stones and jammed with Bruce Springsteen. You may have heard of his smash worldwide #1 hit “Jeopardy” and “The Breakup Song”, not to mention the parody written by Weird Al Yankovic.

Being a famous and successful rock star is only one part of the mosaic that is Greg’s story. In the 90s Greg poured his passion for lyrics into writing fiction—publishing four novels, one of which “Horror Show” was nominated for the prestigious Bram Stoker Award for Best First Novel.

In this vein, Greg merged his love of writing with Rock and Roll and wrote “Rubber Soul”—a unique rock murder mystery featuring The Beatles. The inspiration for this novel came from Greg’s interviews with Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Pete Best, Yoko Ono and Patti Harrison. In this way Greg gained exclusive access to the biggest band ever to exist. “Rubber Soul” is a work of fiction, but it is 100% historically accurate and a story that only rock veteran Greg Kihn could have written.
