SEEN This Week 10/28/13


This week’s book, author, and event news:

The Giant Yellow Duck art installation which made its first US appearance in Pittsburgh for a three-week stay set sail October 20 for its next destination. The 40-foot duck was loved by both children and adults, brought increased amounts of visitors to Point State Park, and took minds off everyday issues if only for a few moments, and helped many people reminisce about the past. Good luck, yellow friend, and may you spread much happiness across other American cities as you did here!

Here’s the first part of Mora Kent’s erotic series, All That She Desires. Intended for an adult audience, this tale follows an ambitiously overconfident young secretary, fleeing her humdrum life back home, apprehensive, but determined of what the future will bring.

New Zealand’s Jean Drew invited Nancy Lee Badger to speak at Adventures in Authorland. Paranormal romance opens doors to all kinds of creatures, be them vampires, shape-shifters, sorcerers, the Fae, Hobbits, gnomes, unicorns…or dragons.

Humor is an important learning tool for children, and Edel Sweeney’s Ollie and Dexter Go Trick or Treating uses lots of humor to get an important message of safety across, something very important since Halloween is almost upon us. The story is about a little boy who finds himself lost while out trick or treating and trying to find his way home.

For all you Authonomy expats who remember the lovely and talented Sian O’Leary, stop by and have a look at some of her other outstanding creations.
