A young girl and her friends know there’s more than meets the eye when lakefront construction work unearths a mysterious floating mass in this new middle-grade book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

Connecticut’s Northwest Hills conjure up images of winding country roads, 18th century clapboard houses, spectacular fall foliage, and the next Christmas tree for Rockefeller Plaza. Briarwood Cove, a fictional Norman Rockwellesque hamlet ensconced deep in these hills, conjures up one additional thing – paranormal activity. It’s a good thing eleven-year-old adopted Chinese empath/precognitive Ling-Ling Turner is a resident. Ling-Ling is a PPI (Paranormal Private Investigator). When strange things happen in town, most adults either “pooh-pooh” them or come up with a logical explanation. Ling-Ling knows better – she is a firm believer in the veracity of paranormal activity, who delves into bizarre occurrences to seek the truth.

In Ling-Ling Turner, PPI: Mystery of the Rising Island, doom casts a shadow over Briarwood Cove when blasting at a lakefront construction site releases a floating stink pile of muck from the depths of frosty Lake Tahaso. Coyotes arrive in town, and mysterious attacks on domesticated animals occur at night. While the local police deem coyotes responsible for the attacks, Ling-Ling and her friends Chloe, Jada, and Pablo discover the truth: the tiny town is under the spell of a revived massive ancient Indian curse!

Author Laura J. Stegmaier has written children’s fiction in a variety of media, including graphic novels, internationally broadcast animated television series, audio books and comic strips. The deep woods surrounding her longtime home in the rural Northwest Hills of Connecticut, as well as her belief in otherworldly and paranormal phenomena, inspire her writing.

William Brown Jr. Releases New Picture Book Featuring Magical Garden

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Jimmy’s Alphabet Garden” by William Brown Jr.

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Jimmy’s Alphabet Garden” by William Brown Jr.

A young boy’s excitement over his newly planted garden spills over into his dreams in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

Planting a garden leads to an imaginative adventure for a boy named Jimmy. This new children’s book follows Jimmy’s dream about his garden, where he discovers he’s not growing ordinary vegetables fit for a salad but magical ones that can sing, talk and teach him rules. By spelling words correctly, Jimmy’s special requests are granted.

“Jimmy’s Alphabet Garden” features a colorful cast of characters from A to Z, who bounce and sway on their vines to get his attention. The special vegetables grow only for him, and when he spells out words correctly, they transform his word into reality – as long as he follows the rules for consonants and vowels. A dog, pile of candy and new bike appear like magic in this unforgettable, interactive garden. When Jimmy wakes up in the morning, he runs outside to check out his garden to see if his dream came true. Although the garden contains only a few green plants, he soon receives a welcome surprise.

Colorful, cartoon-like drawings by the author draw readers in to this book designed for reading aloud. This is the first book for author and illustrator William Brown Jr., who has been interested in art since the age of 9, when a local newspaper printed his drawing. The professional artist hopes to create more children’s books.
