In the jungles of coastal Mexico, twelve-year-old Kazu Danser is on the run, his bloody past haunting and attempting to be his ruination. Hot on his heals is journalist Carson Staines, a deadly madman full of blood thirst and greed, determined to first chronicle Kazu’s criminal life – and then end it. Staines must nail him down, dead or alive; the boy being worth a huge payoff.

Making a perilous crossing of the border into the States, Kazu fights for his life, desperately heading east. Entering sunburnt Florida, he teams up with a gang of Floridian street urchins, known to the authorities as, “The disposables.”

With Staines not letting up on the chase, Kazu and the other youths go on the run, fighting for their lives.

Can the Disposables and Kazu survive?

What will they have to do to stop the murderous and resourceful monster mowing through them to get to his reward?

The second part of the book takes place in the shadows of Florida, where street urchins fights every day to survive, both bodily and in spirit. In contrast to the tropical beaches and teeming vacationers, the children will do anything necessary to keep their heads above the perilous deep waters.

Review

This story didn’t start off slow, it was a continuation and it continued to pick up throughout the book.
The writing was smart and witty at times, which gave it another element.
I loved the unpredictability, the mystery, the history, and everything in between.

Clipped by @aalitowski – Publisher @PublishingAcorn – Reveal by @RABTBookTours

Memoir

Date Published: November 4th 2021

Publisher: Acorn Publishing

 

photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

Clipped is a quirky memoir about a new mother whose desperation to get her
baby to sleep catapulted her into becoming an inventor and small business
owner—just before the world fell apart in 2008. 

As a full-time mother
and entrepreneur, Adrienne Alitowski rolled out her invention,
blankyclip®, to over thirty stores in the Buy Buy Baby national chain.
LA Parent Expecting and Kids Today both made blankyclip a “Top Pick”.
The United States Patent and Trademark Office awarded her three utility
patents and a trademark. All that fabulous glory aside, Adrienne also
learned what it’s like to pee through a hole in the floor of a Chinese
factory, and to be pregnant and throw up on the street just before an
investor meeting. These experiences led her down a path to write this memoir about sticking to your vision and being open to finding gold in the muck.

About The Author

John Reger is a successful entrepreneur and is currently the owner of ten businesses. He was born in Guam and grew up in Houston, Texas. John is goal-oriented and has a hunger to reach for success every day. His businesses range in a variety of shopping centers, clothing lines, window tinting, buildings, and HDS rental homes. He has amazing relations with commercial businesses who have partnered with him such as Hot Topic, Party City, Spirit Halloween, and hundreds of other outlets nationwide. His business is recognized internationally in the United Kingdom, the European Union, Australia, and New Zealand.

John dropped out of school at the age of fifteen, and he began his entrepreneurship journey at the age of eighteen. He was determined to exceed expectations beyond recognition and was a firm believer in “never doing just enough.” He considers himself an engineer designer, contractor, and businessman all in one. This kind of ambition has taken the young entrepreneur beyond the roots of intellect by becoming a perspicacious achiever and a champion. Throughout his trials, John learned to ameliorate success in his failures. He took risks that ended up costing him fortunes, and even when those losses seem to have castigated him, his determination to rise above the error branded him as a true master of entrepreneurship.

John considers himself as a private man who rarely shows himself in news and media outlets. Instead, John reticently stays behind the scenes, blithely away from the world to focus on what truly matters, such as his wife, kids, and his businesses. A contributing factor to John’s entrepreneurship experiences was his father. He considers his father being “the smartest man in the world,” and was his mentor from his late adolescent years until his young adult life. John enjoys sharing his knowledge with other entrepreneurs. He wrote the book Don’t Talk for Free, about his successes and sales techniques.

Aside from his many achievements, John’s hobbies are car racing and boxing. He enjoys collecting exotic cars but also enjoys a casual life by driving his truck or Jeep Cherokee daily. He enjoys spending time with his six wonderful children and his beautiful wife.

We Never Knew Just What It Was… by @BooksMurphey – Publisher @PublishingAcorn – Reveal by @RABTBookTours

 

The Story of the Chad Mitchell Trio

Non-Fiction

Date to be Published: August 11th

Publisher: Acorn Publishing

Of all the groups to emerge during the folk era of the 1960’s, first the Chad Mitchell Trio and later The Mitchell Trio were unequivocally the best. Their complex harmonies, sense of comedic timing and stage presence were unique to the folk movement. They didn’t enjoy the commercial success of other groups because their material made political and social statements that radio and television refused to play. They were wildly popular, though, on college campuses throughout the country during this turbulent time and fostered political and social awareness among thousands of young men and women as they faced the challenging era ahead.

But as Mike, Chad and Joe Frazier raced along a frantic treadmill of rehearsals, recording sessions, nightclubs and concerts, Mike and Chad began to realize the demand for musical perfection was the only thing they had in common. Their personalities were and remain polar opposites. When Chad left in 1965, neither mourned the parting. John Denver replaced Chad. Two years later, Joe’s demons caught up to him forcing Mike and John to fire Joe.

When folk reunions became popular, fans and folk historians agreed that The Trio was the one group that would never take the stage again. Their schism was just too great.

Mike and Chad and Joe hadn’t spoken in twenty years. Then came a call. I will if he will. Their mentor and music director Milt Okun worried they were making a mistake. They couldn’t possibly be as good as their fans remembered.

They were. Mike and Chad kept their day jobs, and their distance. But once again, they shared the music.

Review

I was genuinely surprised by how much I loved this. I was drawn in from the blurb, it sounded different than anything I’ve read recently. Then once I got started I was drawn in by the writing and storyline. It completely drew me in from start to finish. I loved the characters, I loved the great attention to history, and I loved the writing style. It was such an easy read to get lost in and I was sad when it was over.

Haha. I’m très hilarious.
