I know a few people who have Celiac Disease and up until now I thought that they just have to stay away from gluten, but until I read this book I did not realize to what extent and how deeply it can affect one's life. Going Against the Grain is the perfect guide for someone who has just been diagnosed with Celiac, suspects they have the disease or who knows someone in their family who has it and wants to learn more.

REMAKE by Ilima Todd Book Trailer Release with Giveaway

Last year both my daughter and I read REMAKE by Ilima Todd (read our review). We really liked this dystopian novel that was full of twists and turns.

Shadow Mountain has just released the cinematic book trailer for this first novel in a planned trilogy. Wow! It's great. Check it out below. It makes me eager for the next installment.

It's starting to feel like summer here in Montreal! We went from winter coats to shorts. So typical. We never really get spring. But I finally did get spring fever and started decluttering, cleaning and organizing. Felt soooo good, but I've got a ways to go. And BEA is just around the corner. YAY! Anyone going?

My Review
Reviewed by Laura Fabiani

The first time I learned of marketing expert and guru Penny C. Sansevieri was when I was a new author in 2008 and was doing research on how to promote my own book. I then read Penny's Red Hot Internet Publicity which taught me so much about book marketing, tons actually. I simply loved it!

That book had been eye-opening for me. This time, I've dug into her revised edition and power pack bundled books on how to get sales and reviews on Amazon. And this time, she demystified Amazon for me, its algorithm and how to find the right keywords and categories for a book.

Reviewed by Laura Fabiani

Last year I read The Butterfly and the Violin by Kristy Cambron which left an impression on me. I was eager to read the second book in the Hidden Masterpiece series, which I also enjoyed very much. This book can be read as a stand-alone. As in the first book, there is a dual timeline. In present day, we are once again introduced to Sera and William who are getting married, and Sera is moving her art gallery from New York to California.

My house needs spring cleaning real bad. So bad I just want to bury my nose in a good book. Anyone in the same boat?
