WIN TODAY'S FEATURED BOOK: THE MYSTERY OF JOURNEYS CROWNE BY K. MICHAEL CRAWFORD

Children’s Book Author and Illustrator, K. Michael Crawford brings to you one of Bazel Lark’s greatest unsolved mysteries in a book called “The Mystery of Journeys Crowne”- An Adventure Drawing Game.

Mr. Lark, an Archaeologist and Explorer, discovered the one Golden Key that would lead him through a series of clues in order to finally answer the mystery behind Journeys Crowne. Although, it is sad to report, Bazel was never able to solve this mystery.

By following in Mr. Lark’s footsteps, the reader must answer clues on each page in order to draw the missing elements on the page. Once the reader has completed all the pages, the mystery behind Journeys Crowne will be revealed.

Bazel Lark was the world’s foremost expert on hidden treasures and finds. He had won a number of awards for his work and was a proud member of Society of International Archaeology and Antiquities. His work touched millions and each year he created a whole new generation of Archaeologists through his teaching at Mystic Shores Community College. He was once quoted as saying, “Man always tries to bury the past and I dig it up.”

His most notable find to date was the remains of Jimmy Hoffa discovered in the Tomb of Sir Isaac Newton. Many of his other great discoveries, The Treasure of Tabuyo the Headdress of Cleopatra’s hand servant, and the Trojan Horse Head are housed at the Bazel Lark Museum in Mystic Shores. On the other hand, K. Michael Crawford still remains a mystery.

Win Today's Featured Book: Riding the Hulahula to the Arctic Ocean: A Guide to 50 Extraordinary Adventures for the Seasoned Traveler by Don Mankin and Shannon Stowell with a Foreword by Sir Richard Branson

 

Millions of baby boomers discovered the lure of adventure travel during the heady days of the ’60s and ’70s. They then traded their backpacks for mortgages and turned their attention to families and careers. Now they are ready to rediscover the fun and excitement of traveling off the beaten path.

RIDING THE HULAHULA TO THE ARCTIC OCEAN describes dozens of unique trips for experienced travelers looking for challenge and excitement, scenic beauty and exposure to different cultures — from tracking mountain gorillas in Uganda to visiting the jungle tribes of Papua New Guinea to rafting the Hulahula River in northern Alaska.

The trips range widely in terms of physical demands and comfort, span all seven continents and include cultural adventures in exotic destinations as well as wilderness trips in remote and dramatically beautiful settings. All trips recognize the changing needs and physical realities that come with age, as well as the more complex, sophisticated expectations of the mature traveler.           

Twenty six trips are described in extensive first-person accounts by experienced travelers. The narratives are personal and subjective, focusing as much on the rich experiences the authors had as on the details of where they went and what they did.

The book also offers shorter descriptions of an additional 26 trips recommended by tour operators in a survey by the Adventure Travel Trade Association. These trips also cover a wide range of destinations, activities and levels of difficulty.

Wherever your wanderlust is nudging you, RIDING THE HULAHULA TO THE ARCTIC OCEAN delivers inspiration and ideas to put adventure-hungry baby boomers back on the road.

WIN TODAY'S FEATURED BOOK:

Digital Storytelling (Second Edition): 

A Creator’s Guide To Interactive Entertainment 

 

Storytellers in the 2lst century -- including writers, filmmakers, and animators -- have a brand new way to create stories, thanks to powerful advances in digital technology. Known as “digital storytelling,” this new arena allows us to create narratives that are deeply immersive, interactive, and pull the audience into the story in ways never before possible. In addition, these new works have the ability to smudge the line between reality and fiction to such a degree that the story almost becomes a part of “real life.”

DIGITAL STORYTELLING (SECOND EDITION): A CREATOR’S GUIDE TO INTERACTIVE ENTERTAINMENT explores the full range of narrative works created for interactive digital media, including Web-based entertainment, video games, mobile apps, virtual reality, and other forms that are much less well-known to the public. Equally important, the book also examines how these cutting-edge works can be used not only to entertain, but also to inform, teach, train and promote.

The practical applications of this form of narrative are enormous. Digital Storytelling techniques are increasingly employed in journalism, marketing, advertising, and education. They are widely used by mainstream corporations, the entertainment industry, and non-profit organizations.

This book is a fascinating read for anyone interested in this new form of storytelling. It offers clear insight into this intriguing and swiftly evolving world, and is written in an accessible, non-technical style. In addition, it is a straightforward and practical guide to anyone who wants to become a spinner of these new kinds of tales, offering them an abundance of tips, real life examples and case studies.

WIN TODAY'S FEATURED BOOK: MORNING LIGHT by Nancy King

New Yorker Anna Baum is a smart, attractive woman who grows up feeling she has lived her life with her face pressed against a window, watching other people savor the pleasures of being alive. To soothe herself, she tells herself stories. Her only friend, an imaginary childhood storyteller named Boonah, suddenly and mysteriously disappears as does the ability to tell herself stories. Unexpectedly, she finds herself lost and adrift.

Professionally secure and successful as a teacher in a posh private school, married to a handsome, charming man, it all looks good on the outside. But inside, Anna inhabits a world of pain and disturbing images that haunt and threaten her sense of well-being.

Life changes dramatically when Anna takes a new job and begins teaching emotionally disturbed preschoolers. She is fierce in her desire to protect them. When one of her students runs away from an abusive caretaker and disappears, Anna is devastated. After a fall and a potent nightmare, she is taken to the hospital and diagnosed with a virulent bout of pneumonia.

During a long hospital stay, two nurses, Emma and Jacob, breach Anna's protective wall. With their encouragement, Anna develops the courage to look at what she has always run from. Boonah reappears, and with him, she recovers her stories and the will to live.

Anna's change is profound. She rejects the stoicism of her mother and grandmother and, for the first time in her life, accepts the help that is offered to her. Despite a catastrophic medical diagnosis, she transforms pain into power and discovers that the stories we tell ourselves can kill... or they can heal.

Morning Light, published by Tasora Books, is available at www.nancykingstories.com, www.itascabooks.com, your local bookstore, and the YourLifeIsATrip.com Trip Shop.
