Tent Oogie front cover_final
Pen the Tale, Oogie (Hardback)
The greatest Storyteller in the forest is about to go into hibernation. What will all the animals do without their nightly stories? Karen Moore has given us a wonderful tale of what it takes to create something original. With Doug Hansen's art to bring the characters to life, Oogie and Mr. Fox challenge the bounds of creativity and, in the process, perfectly illustrate the writer's most common dilemma. Being original. With touches of Goldilocks, Winnie-the-Pooh and Paddington, Oogie's journey leads him to the place where stories are born.

Vengeance Unbound by Gary Wayne Walker
Bear Republic clients were dying . . . Every forty-five days. The only common denominator was the agent who sold them their life insurance policies. Arnold Taylor.

With a cheating wife, friends of dubious character, and his clients being murdered every forty-five days, Arnie’s life is anything but.

On the Couch: A Dog’s Tale by David Johnson
Nagi’s story describes his journey from pound imprisonment to life with an extremely dysfunctional, yet animal-loving, couple. Forced to become a mental health co-therapist, Nagi seeks solace in his relationships with two neighbor dogs, Tina Weiner and Sugar Bear, and an overly chatty beetle of questionable lineage, Rex. He becomes Nagi’s mentor, quick to offer up unsolicited advice, along with far-fetched life experiences, so far-fetched, in fact, that the reader will question whether Rex is a compulsive liar or a sage from ancient times. Somehow, Nagi learns to make the best of his new life, living with two delusional parents whose love turns sour and a cast of characters who will leave you wondering who is crazier than who and which one needs to spend the most time “on the couch.” The reader soon discovers that the “couch” is where truths and innermost thoughts are revealed.
