Dog Ear Publishing releases “Loving Again: Precious Chelsea and the Queen of Sheba” by Karen Blaser.

Precious Chelsea stole her owner’s heart from their first day together. The author relays the many adventures she and the German Shepherd experienced in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

Little did author Karen Blaser imagine how close she and her German Shepherd puppy would become. Indeed, Chelsea’s death more than 12 years later brought almost unbearable pain, but Blaser wouldn’t trade her memories of their companionship for anything. She describes their relationship and adventures in this new book that reads like a love letter to a precious daughter, as well as what happens when someone else enters her life.

“Loving Again: Precious Chelsea and the Queen of Sheba” serves as more than a trip down memory lane. It also showcases the realities and responsibilities of owning and training a pet, important considerations for potential pet owners to understand before they undertake their own journey with a four-legged friend. Chelsea offers a testament to the power of love, and she shows it in endless ways like watching over tiny kittens and licking away Blaser’s tears. But eventually old age catches up with her and Blaser must make the tough decision to help her companion slip away.

Along with lessons learned from having a dog, Blaser shares what happens when love comes again, this time in the form of an adorable German Shepherd puppy she names Sheba. Her new companion brings joy to Blaser once again. They also inspire her to write a rap that children can sing to their own four-legged friends and includes activities pet lovers can appreciate. Blaser writes that she hopes her book can comfort others who have suffered from losing a loving pet.

Author Karen Blaser works in the business world as a trainer/manager at car dealerships and occasional real estate agent. The Connecticut native previously toured the United States and Canada performing with musical groups, studying with a jazz guitarist and opening a guitar studio, graduating summa cum laude with a music theory degree. Volunteering to teach music at church inspired Blaser to enter education, and she earned a master’s degree in curriculum and instruction, moving to the Atlanta area to be principal at a junior academy. She continues to be active at her church.

Soldier Dog and Stray Form Unlikely Friendship; K.R. Feinstein Releases New Children’s Book

coverFeinstein

Dog Ear Publishing releases “the Adventures of Jethro & Fritz” by K.R. Feinstein

Two unforgettable canines share hardship and adventure in this new children’s book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

When stray dog Jethro sees an unfamiliar dog smelling of sadness at Glenwood Memorial Cemetery, little does he know his life is going to change – for the better. It seems Fritz, a German shepherd who also stars in this new children’s book, has an adventurous past, including doing a tour in Iraq as a soldier dog. The magic of friendship is apparent in this charming story.

Surviving a hurricane is just the first of the new adventures the two dogs share. “The Adventures of Jethro & Fritz” slowly reveals Fritz’s past, from his beginnings as the runt of the litter to Army training to the tragic consequences of war. Jethro, not a typically adventurous character, soon finds himself taking part in situations that he would never dare tackle alone, including a brush with animal control. By working together, Jethro and Fritz uncover dangerous dealings in town and learn that despite their different backgrounds, each has his own style of courage.

Pen and ink illustrations by S.E. Feinstein enhance the start of each chapter in this heartwarming book that introduces children to war, as well as courageous trainers and dogs who help keep troops safe.

Calico Cat Has Life-Changing Magical Adventure in New Children’s Book by Chrysie Shaw

coverShaw

Dog Ear Publishing releases “The Cat and the Goldfish” by Chrysie Shaw.

A dip in a fish pond leads to a surprising encounter in this new children’s book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

When a pretty little calico cat with a funny-sounding voice takes part in a magical adventure, anything can happen. Sasquatch, who stars in this new illustrated children’s book, loves to sit by the fish pond and look at the fish swimming below the pink water lilies. When she gets too close to the edge one day and falls in, she has the surprise of her life when she turns into a mercat and encounters a talking goldfish. What happens next will change her life.

“The Cat and the Goldfish” features a whimsical, magical tale about Sasquatch, a real-life cat who arrived at the author’s home as a tiny kitten. Sasquatch, who has a gray coat with patches of tan and white on her face, paws and tummy, is just as much a character and happy cat as the fictional cat who frolics in the pond. Colorful cartoon illustrations by Kezzia Crossley add to the appeal of the book. It’s geared toward 5- to 8-year-olds but also works well as a read-aloud story for adults to share with children.

Author Chrysie Shaw is a longtime animal lover, having grown up in southeastern Montana surrounded by animals. She worked for almost 30 years as a registered nurse before retiring. Shaw now lives near the Rocky Mountains in southern Colorado, once again surrounded by animals. Kezzia Crossley, a freelance illustrator, lives in British Columbia, Canada.

A woman living in Australia decides to journey back to India to explore her roots in this inspirational new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

As she sets out on this new chapter, she decides to chronicle the steps she takes and the people she meets, both familiar faces and new ones. Chakraborty begins to find peace in the fellowship and workout of yoga, healing her spirit and body. When she returns to Melbourne, she does so with a new sense of who she is. A serious accident and long recovery leave their mark on her mind and body, but she finds faith to open herself to life once again.

Author Nandita Chakraborty was born into a conservative Indian family connected to the arts. Her father was an award-winning filmmaker in Indian cinema, and famous artists routinely dined with the family. Nandita and her siblings went to boarding school near Meghalaya, India, and later moved to New Dehli, where she attended Sri Venketeswara University and studied political science by day and attended fashion and visual merchandising school by night. In her third year in college, she decided to pursue a diploma in visual merchandising, leaving behind her career in political science.  Now days she creates beauty and love in stories she writes. She now lives in Melbourne, Australia.

New Historical Novel by David Huntley Captivating Tale of Post WWII Espionage

coverHuntley

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Death Watch Beetle” by David E. Huntley.

This new book released by Dog Ear Publishing is a thriller set during the Cold War, featuring a young man who finds himself deep in trouble when he accidentally finds a secret message hidden in a hymnal.  Donald Harvey travels internationally as he seeks to determine the meaning behind an encryption that could put his life and the lives of those he knows and loves in danger. 

Donald Harvey is happily occupied as an employee at Trandect Engineering Ltd. in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, England. Donald, the star of this new novel, entertains himself with his sweetheart, a young Polish immigrant named Alijca, and he skirts the edges of danger with a lucrative black market business. His idyll, however, comes to a sharp halt when Donald unwittingly involves himself in international espionage. Some misplaced apple juice uncovers invisible ink on a stray piece of paper in a hymnal, and Donald quite naturally becomes curious. The strange series of letters is clearly a code, and Donald takes it to a cryptographer friend.

The cryptographer, Roger, is intrigued, and takes it to his contacts at MI6. The agency and their American counterparts in the Air Force brief Donald, and they bring him into their plans to apprehend a Nazi war criminal responsible for the death of thousands, as well as heading up Hitler’s super weapons projects.

 Can Donald uphold his end of the task and bring the notorious criminal to justice? Can he maintain his life as he does it, including his burgeoning romance with the beautiful Alijca, who has her own history of suffering at the hands of Russian and Nazi occupation forces?

“Death Watch Beetle” is an engaging story, creating an authentic narrative. Filled with action, adventure and romance, author David Huntley’s novel becomes an intriguing puzzle for amateur cryptographers and fiction fans alike. Huntley, a survivor of the London Blitz in WWII, now a semi-retired international businessman, lives in Texas with his French wife, Sophie, herself a survivor of Nazi occupation. Huntley has tremendous respect and admiration for the soldiers and sailors of the U.S. and Allied Armed Forces who “helped save Europe from tyranny,”  and has dedicated this book to WWII veterans. Many of their names & service are recorded for posterity in the books’ final pages.

A little calf finds some unexpected friends when he becomes trapped in a ravine in this new picture book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

It’s not easy being on your own, especially when you’re young. A little calf with a tendency to wander off gets more than he bargained for when a fast-moving storm leaves him trapped in a ravine all alone. As the story goes in this new children’s book, even the rancher can’t retrieve the scared calf because of the deep snow. Luckily, he’s got some friends in the sky who keep his hope alive.

“The Calf and the Stars” provides a beautiful lesson about the power of friendship, even when it’s between stars and a little calf. When he begins to cry, the stars spell out encouraging messages so the little calf knows he’s not alone. Told in simple rhymes designed for reading aloud, this delightful children’s book offers a heartwarming story that charms adults and children alike. The gentle watercolor illustrations pair beautifully with the story, offering a reminder that friendship can be found in unlikely places.

Author Betty Page and illustrator Phil Wallace recently teamed up for the children’s book “It’s Neat to Eat.” Page, a freelance writer who used the name Betty Russell, wrote human interest articles for the New York Times, Seventeen Magazine and local newspapers. Wallace, whose cartoons have appeared in trade magazines such as Advertising Age and Broadcast Magazine, also illustrated “Tiger Tales,” a book about the Flying Tigers in World War II.
