Tina Marie and Marla E.
We are happy to announce the release of our new book, Tina Marie and Marla E.!! It’s a children’s book about friendship, but would also make a delightful gift for friends and family who are considering retirement or are newly-retired and are wondering what adventures to embark on in their newfound free time. Tina and Marla have very different ideas about how to have fun, but that makes their conversations lively and interesting!

A School of Fish (It’s a story!! It’s a coloring book!)
Do you wear glasses? Do they stay on your face? Well, Martha’s glasses liked to fly off her face, and — oh, no! — they especially liked to blow into the sea! When Martha went scuba-diving, she found some fish–wearing glasses that looked strangely like hers–and the fish looked very much like they were going to school! Find out what this is all about in A School of Fish. You even get to color in all of the pictures, because it is a COLORING BOOK! Have fun!

We are SO excited to be partnering with The White Squirrel Shoppe in beautiful Brevard, North Carolina! Brevard calls itself “The White Squirrel Capital of the World” due to the large population of rare white squirrels there.

Based on the true story of a grown-up who shares his name, Tommy and the Messed Up Orders will have you giggling and rooting for this persistent little fellow. Great book to be read aloud — with flair!
