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.

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

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.
