Duck Dares to Dream in New Children’s Book by Raymond Copp

coverCopp

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Carolyn Quimby” by Raymond Copp.

A farm duck has a series of adventures in this new children’s chapter book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

 “Sometimes loving someone means you have to let them go…” For Carolyn Quimby, a white duck, life on the farm isn’t enough; instead, she dreams about flying with wind blowing through her feathers, even though everyone knows farm ducks can’t fly. This new chapter book features Carolyn and her friends who live on Farmer Wilson’s farm in a story filled with friendship and love.

“Carolyn Quimby” stars a charming cast of characters, including Clomper, a Belgian draft horse who is the oldest animal living on the farm, and Professor Hopatoadalopolos, a wise toad who lives in Trickling Brook and is rumored to be older than the farm itself. After mallard ducks visit the farm’s pond, Carolyn is given a surprising invention that might help her achieve her dream. Her father, Peanuts Quimby, had his own flying adventure, thanks to a traveling circus.

A daring rescue from hunting dogs, a kitchen visit that creates havoc and new friends for the farm bring excitement to all who live there. It’s not until she faces loss, however, that Carolyn will find the courage to act on her dream and learn how to fly. Whimsical watercolor illustrations by Mary Manning bring the characters to life, showing clearly the bonds of friendship they share.

Author Raymond Copp is a clinical psychologist specializing in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Copp, who had a 30-year career in law enforcement, also serves as a battalion chaplain with the Maryland Army National Guard. He became a Catholic priest after 9-11. Copp has written eight children’s picture and chapter books as well as poetry.

Cast of Characters Star in William G. Tierney’s New Novel Set at University

coverTierney

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Academic Affairs: A Love Story” by William G. Tierney.

There’s much more than academics going on at Smithfield University in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing. The author, a university professor, creates a sexy, intriguing, and poignant campus world populated by passionate characters who make love, make mistakes and make millions.

For the bored professor with a roving eye, the striving student with a secret, the all-powerful president and the humble gardener, campus life is a daily drama full of twisted relationships, pleasure, passion and pain. And sometimes, lessons learned. Set at the fictional Smithfield University in California “Academic Affairs: A Love Story,”  weaves a narrative both tender and turbulent, examining all variations of relationships in this loosely bound academic family: sociology professor Bill Massy’s clandestine affair with the brilliant and powerful provost; President Roger Turner’s strange partnership with the eccentric mogul who donates $250 million; and graduate student Jim Hagedorn, who jeopardizes his love affair with Kevin for casual sexual encounters. As these too-human characters struggle to make sense of their lives and their work, some relationships end and new ones start, thanks to luck and the lure of love.

For all readers who went to college filled with dreams of enlightenment, passion, and change – and for those readers who wish they had –this powerful novel will stir memories and capture hearts.

Author William G. Tierney is co-director of the Pullias Center for Higher Education and a professor at the University of Southern California. He earned a master’s degree from Harvard University and a Ph.D. from Stanford University. Tierney was academic dean at an American Indian community college, a Peace Corps volunteer, Fulbright Scholar in Australia and Central America and scholar-in-residence in Malaysia. This is the first novel for Tierney, who has written 12 books on higher education.  He devotes his time on and off campus to helping boost college readiness and opportunity for low-income youth.

Colin Clark Releases New Book that Adds Further Review of Math Concepts

coverClark

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Math Overboard! (Basic Math for Adults) Part 2: Trigonometry, Logarithms, Probability and Statistics” by Colin Clark.

A former university mathematics professors explains and reviews school math concepts in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing that’s designed to remove gaps in mathematical training.

Learning math involves more than simply memorizing calculation techniques that are easily forgotten. Instead, mathematics lessons must include solving problems to achieve greater comprehension, notes a professor emeritus of mathematics in a new followup to his book “Math Overboard! (Basic Math for Adults) Part 1.” This latest book picks up the discussion Colin Clark began in the previous volume, focusing on higher-level concepts like trigonometry, logarithms, complex numbers, and probability and statistics.

Clark designed “Math Overboard! (Basic Math for Adults) Part 2” to help adult students remove gaps in their mathematical training and memory so they can succeed in advanced, college-level courses. His detailed, easy-to-read descriptions of math concepts and equations offer a straightforward way to learn about such things as solving triangles, rotations in a plane, permutations and combinations, vectors and the Euclidean algorithm. Review problems in each chapter allow students to focus their studies on specific areas of math where they fall short.

Mathematics students will appreciate the detailed index that includes references to the first book, as well as extensive sample problems. The author’s descriptions of real-world uses of math in such fields as technology, finance, economics and science show the relevance of knowing math concepts inside and out. Solutions to review problems, an explanation of mathematical proofs, a listing of the Greek alphabet and a glossary of math symbols round out this invaluable resource for those interested in higher-level mathematics.

Author Colin Clark, professor emeritus of mathematics at the University of British Columbia, was inspired to write this book thanks to students who tried – and sometimes failed – to grasp calculus owing to gaps in understanding their earlier education. In addition to the first “Math Overboard!” book, Clark wrote “Mathematical Bioeconomics – The Mathematics of Conservation” and “Dynamic State-Variable Models in Ecology. He and his wife, Janet, live in a suburb of Vancouver in British Columbia, Canada.
