Dog Ear Publishing releases “Ling-Ling Turner, PPI: Mystery of the Rising Island” by Laura J. Stegmaier

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.

Bedtime Story Stars Violin-Playing Cat Who Travels the World on Moonbeams; Anne E. Moses Releases New Children’s Book

coverMosesBennett

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Gatos Musikos – A Secret Told by the Moon” by Anne E. Moses.

Author and illustrator Anne E. Moses presents the remarkable tale about a wondrous cat who plays for sleeping creatures the world over in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

The Moon has a secret: His best friend is a magical cat who plays the violin and dances for all sleeping creatures, traveling on moonbeams around the world. This charming new children’s book shares all the places Gatos Musikos visits and the wonders he sees. No creatures are too big or too small, too urban or too remote for Gatos to play his little violin and dance his twirling dance for them as they dream.

 “Gatos Musikos – A Secret Told by the Moon” weaves a wonderful tale that showcases animals and cultures from around the world. When the Moon is young and dinosaurs still refuse to go sleep despite all his efforts to soothe them, a very tired baby brontosaurus finally drifts off. The Moon watches in amazement as a marvelous cat appears and begins playing his little violin and dancing a twirling dance, easing the baby dinosaur into his dreams. The Moon is so delighted he offers his moonbeams to the cat so he can play and dance for all of Earth’s sleeping creatures. Now Gatos entertains animals from a tiny spider in its web to great Indian elephants and everything in between. He even performs a Scottish sword dance on the banks of Loch Ness as a sleeping Nessie drifts nearby.

After a busy night of traveling on moonbeams, and as dawn breaks softly over the world, Gatos has one last song to play before placing his little violin back into its magical case – this one for his very best friend, the Moon. Children everywhere are invited to believe in moonbeams, secure in the knowledge that they will never be forgotten by this remarkable cat, for Gatos Musikos will play his music and dance his twirling dance for them in their dreams. Enchanting illustrations by the author bring this imaginative bedtime story to life.

Author Anne E. Moses, born in Rochester, N.Y., has lived for many years in Boston, Mass., the United Kingdom, Switzerland and Italy. She and her husband now live in Greece. Moses is a painter, designer and screenwriter, as well as a passionate renovator of old houses. She has also completed six volumes in The Gracie Guides, a series of travel and how-to books “paw-written” by their very clever English Cocker Spaniel, Gracie.

New Cookbook Touts Benefits of Eating to Stay Healthy; Sharmila Patil Bhagirath Releases New Book

coverJogdand

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Tridoshik Recipes” by Shamila Patil Bhagirath.

Author Sharmila Patil Bhagirath bestows the fruits of her many years of research in Ayurvedic cooking upon readers interested in using food as a route to wellness of body and mind in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing. Ayurveda, the ancient Indian science of longevity, uses the natural aspects of food as a way to heal.

Ayurveda is a venerable Indian tradition focusing on maintaining health and longevity using food as a medicine. Unlike many of today’s theories about health, this method of nutrition focuses not only on the nutrients contained within the food but the food’s digestibility and its post-digestion effect. In her new book, author Sharmila Patil Bhagirath explains the teachings of Ayurveda and the approach to food in addition to sharing many healthful, delicious recipes that will allow readers to maintain optimum health.

According to Ayurveda, All matter is made up of five elements (space, air, fire, water and earth). These elements are represented in the body as Vata (air & space), Pitta (fire & water) and Kapha (earth & water) which are called Tridoshas. Food also contains these five elements. Building on this connection, Ayurveda utilizes energies of the food to heal and balance the body. So if you have more water element in the body creating imbalance and disease, Ayurveda recommends using food that contains more fire element to restore this imbalance. This is the basic principle behind Ayurvedic cooking. Tridoshik recipes are the ones which balance all three doshas. Ayurveda identifies certain food, spices and cooking methods that are tridosha balancing. The tridoshik recipes contained in this book help restore and maintain this balance in the body, irrespective of one’s doshas.

Sharmila explains the different qualities of the doshas and shares the issues an imbalance can cause. After a thorough explanation of these different aspects, she dives into a huge variety of dishes that will tempt the palate of any reader.

Tridosik Recipes: The Food Alchemy provides a thoughtful approach to food that will allow readers to maintain perennial good health as they eat delicious meals. Providing recipes that are easy to follow and practical, the author makes healthful cooking reachable to even novice cooks.

Author Sharmila Patil Bhagirath, a freelance writer, hails from India, where she’s pursuing her second master’s degree from National Law School of India University in Bangalore, India. She has spent more than 15 years exploring the world of Ayurveda and shares the knowledge in this accessible collection of recipes.
