Sparkle the Elf : A Story About Confidence

*(cover update and print release pending)

Sparkle will inspire self-confidence in children by reminding them that they are loved and have skills. It will also encourage them to be proud of their accomplishments.

Summary: Sparkle, is the tiniest elf. She feels that she is never noticed and so, she feels badly about herself. She decides to learn how to sew and make a special outfit so she’ll stand out from all of her brothers and sisters.

When, Ernie the Elf Watcher magically appears, he reminds Sparkle of all the things she is good at and all the people that care about her. This causes Sparkle to see herself in a new light, literally. She starts to “sparkle”!

Sparkle then finishes her sewing project and wears it to dinner, where her family notices her new sparkle from self-confidence and the outfit she has put so much effort into making.

Looking for Alaska

Before. Miles “Pudge” Halter is done with his safe life at home. His whole life has been one big non-event, and his obsession with famous last words has only made him crave “the Great Perhaps” even more (Francois Rabelais, poet). He heads off to the sometimes crazy and anything-but-boring world of Culver Creek Boarding School, and his life becomes the opposite of safe. Because down the hall is Alaska Young. The gorgeous, clever, funny, sexy, self-destructive, screwed up, and utterly fascinating Alaska Young. She is an event unto herself. She pulls Pudge into her world, launches him into the Great Perhaps, and steals his heart. Then. . . .

After. Nothing is ever the same.

Sebastian Falls

sebastianSebastian Falls by Celeste Holloway

Kindle

She’s the reason the devil never sleeps.

A year after her parents’ death, seventeen-year-old, Meadow Parker is close to having a grave of her own.

Beyond her shrink’s false diagnosis of PTSD, there’s no medical reason for her failing health. Only she knows the cause. But if Meadow told the truth—told them what comes for her at night—they’d lock her in a padded cell.

Seeking an end to her torment, Meadow agrees to visit the supernatural landmark her parents were obsessed with—the river that fuels her fears. On arrival, she’s charged with an ancient power, and her destiny as the long awaited Keeper is sealed. Now the countdown to save the world and the battle for her soul begins.
