Children and YA Author Book signing at Jan’s Paperbacks
Beaverton and Aloha Oregon: Jan’s Paperbacks is hosting a multi-author book signing on Saturday January 26th from 1 to 4pm featuring Children and YA authors Cheryl Linn Martin, Lars D. H. Hedbor, Gary E. Reavis, Sr. and C.J. Maillup.
Cheryl Linn Martin’s current release is Pineapples in Peril, book one of The Hawaiian Island Detective Club Series. For more information, visit her website http://www.cheryllinnmartin.com/
Summary Pineapples in Peril: Slashed, mashed, and left to rot . . . Pineapples reduced to a puddle of gross mush.
Unless, of course, Leilani's younger brother, Kimo, worms his way into the mix. Sleuthing belongs to Leilani and her friends. They are the only official members of The Hawaiian Island Detective Club.
Besides, Kimo has already ruined her summer. Gone are Leilani's days of hitting the waves. Surfing is out and she blames him for her broken arm, now in a clunky, itchy cast. To top things off, Kimo might interfere with the pineapple vandalism case at Tong Plantation and blow their entire investigation.
And the ugliness continues when Leilani's beloved surfboard ends up in the hands of her dreaded enemy.
Seriously? Can the summer get any worse?
Lars D.H. Hedbor is the author of The Prize. For more information, visit his website www.larsdhbedbor.blogspot.com.
Summary The Prize: Caleb's father is serving with Ethan Allen's Green Mountain Boys as the long-anticipated open war against the British rages up and down the length of Lake Champlain. Between his duties on the family farm and constant worry about his father's safety, the young man's attentions are already fully occupied when a fateful encounter with an unlikely neighbor changes everything. Pulled into new intrigues and new friendships, Caleb finds himself on a path that changes his life - and which will affect the outcome of the whole war.
Gary E. Reavis, Sr.is the author of The Telling.
Summary The Telling: 'Grandma, it'll be okay. I don't know what you're talking about, but it will be all right!' said Conor.
Just then a small voice was heard... 'I think maybe I should explain it to him,' the voice said. Then from behind the cookie jar on the counter top stepped out the smallest man Conor had ever seen.
The Tinys are a group of very small people from Europe. Conor's family has been charged with protecting the Tennessee Tinys, a group of the Tinys who have moved to be hidden in the hills in eastern Tennessee for nearly a hundred years, and Conor's time has come to take charge, but he soon discovers that this is no small task.
With a greedy English businessman on the brink of finding out about the Irish Tinys and stealing all their fortunes, Conor knows he has to put a stop to this and protect the foreign friends. He and the Tinys from Tennessee embark on a mission to save these little lives.
In this story filled with action, intrigue, and a little bit of romance, readers will be guessing at every turn. How will Conor and the Tinys evade the powerful family in Europe who has been searching for them for generations?
C.J. Maillup is the author of The Real Halloween.
Summary The Real Halloween: Ashley, Rose, and Cathee, three preteen friends from Portland, Oregon, take off on a trip to visit family in France. At just 12 years old they expected fun, fashion, and adventure, though not the heart-pounding, gut-wrenching kind they run into. As they discover and try to solve strange mysteries, they stumble upon a terrifying secret an entire village hides from. In a race against time where not just their lives, but even their souls are threatened, the girls end up face to face with a mortal danger which will test their strength, courage, and intelligence in ways they could never have guessed.
