Book Release – White Sidewalks: Tales of Mavis Street – 1963

White Sidewalks by Stark Hunter is now available for purchase at book retailers worldwide!

“…Life is just a stroll on a white sidewalk-
Every scene and sound a private mirror in time.
I have purchased it all with cupcakes and memorized prayers.
Time now to drink this soul elixir from this ancient cup.
I dared the ghosts here to come out and show themselves.
I dared them to show me their regretful shadows…”

The mind excursions that form this nostalgic quilt came into literary existence during the daunting times of Covid-19.

Please consider this work as just an “escape-poem” for the poet, and for the reader, from a world closed down…

-Stark Hunter

For many of us, getting glasses is a fun opportunity in accessorizing, but for children it can be traumatic.

Feeling vulnerable and becoming subject to teasing are just a few of the challenges that children may face with this change.

Ma’Kai! Where Are Your Glasses? is the heartwarming story of a boy who is anxious about needing to wear glasses and worried about what his friends will think. Thanks to his friend Milla’s reassurance and the acceptance of his classmates, Ma’Kai discovers that change can be a good thing and that true friends will always support you for who you are.

Lest Darkness Prevail (The Chikondra Trilogy Book 3)

Lest Darkness Previal: Dare to Live the Light by Sandra Valencia is now available for purchase

In the gripping finale of the award-winning Chikondra Trilogy, time dramatically alters the focus of Chikondra’s Minister Sirinoya and his Terran lifemate, Sandra. Challenges force the couple to blend the responsibilities of unification and family with their unique combination of skill and experience in statesmanship.

Meanwhile, history careens along a perilous path. Dedicated diplomats confront growing risks as they doggedly pursue peaceful initiatives. Warily monitoring events that threaten the worlds they serve, leaders conclude that the strategies of a shadowy enemy are working to undermine the stability of the Dil-Terra Interplanetary Alliance. Confident that the elusive Zeteron Empire is on the verge of shifting to an open challenge, many Alliance leaders see disaster looming in the near future. Under the shadow of this threat, questions arise over the union’s will to resist an apparent march toward galactic war.

Dark times create doubt in the minds of even the most faithful of Chikondra’s spiritual guides. When an old fairy tale is recalled, they realize that bits and pieces of the unsettling present appear oddly similar to the ancient legend. Does coincidence play games with the enchanted story? Or does this fable ring bells of warning?

A Business Notion Put in Motion

A Business Notion Put in Motion: The Wit and Wisdom of Jim Whitacre is available for purchase at retailers worldwide! 

In the early 1970s, Jim Whitacre was an established senior CPA and he turned his attention toward helping young accountants entering the business world for the first time. The young recruits were sharp with accounting skills but totally green in the ways of business. Jim had an idea to write a poem about starting a business and the various challenges a young entrepreneur might encounter. That idea was the origin of this book.

“This book is brilliant and highly entertaining! I can see businesses giving this to their employees, and high school and college teachers having their students read and study this book as a great introduction to the business world. I also highly recommend this book to ordinary folks (like myself) who want to easily learn about how businesses are grown and be entertained at the same time.” -Amazon Reviewer

Dear Disappeared Dad by Bette Millat

Dear Disappeared Dad by Bette Millat is available at bookstores worldwide!

Grab your copy from a major retailer or from your favorite bookseller!

Fourteen-year-old Amber Wilcox’s life is derailed when she finds out her mom has lied about what happened to her dad. Amber’s already hard-to-control temper goes into overdrive when she realizes her dad isn’t dead, as she has been told, but that he disappeared when she was four.

Amber is determined to track down her dad and demand answers. Her best friend, Chloe Maddox, agrees to help since she knows her way around a computer, the same way Amber, an artist, knows her way around a portrait. Together they combine their skills and develop a website to hunt for information about Amber’s missing dad.

Meanwhile, Amber faces mounting pressure at school as two former friends begin to bully her. When her temper snaps, she fights back and risks expulsion. As if a missing dad and two school bullies aren’t enough for one fourteen-year-old to manage, Amber’s family life begins to shift with each new discovery about her parents’ past. Her relationship with her mom is threatened—a rift between them caused by years of her mom’s lies.

Will the demands of trying to track down a missing dad send Amber and Chloe into dangerous territory (and back to the principal’s office) and push Amber away from her mom, or will the two friends stay out of trouble, solve the mystery, and heal the hole in Amber’s heart where her dad should be?
