Spring has sprung, and that means it’s the time most of us think about the practicalities of a new home purchase, making home improvements and embarking on renovation projects. To enhance your pool of knowledge and reference tools to those ends, AAPub has a couple of informational tools to help guide you along in these pursuits.

Referencing home purchases and improvements, our very own Annie Acorn along with Patrick Lee have collaborated on two publications. The first one we’re highlighting this April is How to Survive: a Home Purchase.

Are you preparing to purchase a home for your family? Then here is the resource for you! No one who is even beginning to think in terms of a buying a home should be without it.

You’ve saved a nice sized down payment. You’ve picked out a neighborhood with pleasant tree-lined streets and good schools. You’ve checked out all sorts of amenities. But now, the current real estate environment seems really scary. News sources are full of home purchasing horror stories. Foreclosures and short sales can turn a dream house into a nightmare. You’re not the world’s greatest DIYer, nor are you a financial wizard.

Their second publication, How to Survive: a 203K Morgage, guides one through the entire process with useful information, specific to that type loan, a 203K mortgage.

April is Non-Fiction Month at AAPub! Overcoming Personal Challenges

All of our loyal Annie Acorn Publishing LLC readers know we love to write great fiction. In addition, we also offer some wonderful choices in the category of non-fiction as well. All April long, AAPub wishes to highlight for you some of our outstanding non-fiction offerings.

This week, we’re putting the spotlight on publications to help our readers overcome personal challenges in their lives. One universal battle we all may face at one time or another is the desire for a healthier body, and many times this involves losing weight.

Easier said than done, right?

No problem.  In A Tired Older Woman: Loses Weight and Keeps it Off! by our very own Annie Acorn, we provide you with the solution. Dieting again? Losing the same ten pounds over and over? Here’s your answer!

Have you ever lost weight only to gain it all back? Have you ever yo-yoed up and down on the scales? Have you ever dealt with the dreaded plateaus? Then you are among friends. Anyone can lose a few pounds. Many of us already have. The difference is that I, Annie Acorn, am no longer like you. Several years ago, I lost more than 50 pounds, and I have maintained that weight loss for over 5 years – simply, easily, and without giving it much thought. On the pages of A Tired Older Woman: Loses Weight and Keeps It Off! I will share my secrets with you!

Secondly, spotlighted this week, is an offering by From Gents’ Pen’s author D. A. Grady, So You’ve Lost a Limb.

In early spring of 2006, beloved From Gents’ Pens author D. A. Grady’s life changed forever, when his Chevy pickup connected with a metal guard rail on highway U.S. 290, between Austin and Houston. When EMTs arrived on the scene and placed him into their Medevac helicopter, his left leg from below the knee remained behind in his truck, still in his boot.

Now faced with such issues as dealing with a prosthesis, relearning how to walk, handling phantom pain and even something as simple as taking a shower, he brought to the situation the same courage, determination and ingenuity that had held him in good stead through a long life.

Soon approached by the hospital’s trauma team and asked to share his experiences with others, he has counseled amputees ranging from Wounded Warriors to those who chanced to stand behind him in the checkout lane at his local Walmart and, in some cases, fellow amputees he met on the street.

Now he has put his experiences, solutions, and suggestions into words that can be passed on to others who can benefit from his experiences, in a uniquely conversational style that allows this fact-filled offering to seem as if it’s a conversation among friends.

If you’re an amputee yourself, a caregiver of an amputee or a friend of one, the information contained in this book will be helpful to you as you chart your new course through the growing world of amputeeism.

Happy Non-Fiction Reading!

In honor of “March Madness,” AAPub is “Mad” for Mysteries!

AAP-Logo100

 

 

 

Chocolate-Can-Kill_16x25

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“March Madness” is contagious! All of us here at Annie Acorn Publishing LLC wish our readers a wonderful March. What better way to celebrate such an awe-inspiring yearly event, than to let our readers know we’re madly happy about giving our fans great reading options for the long March days ahead.

Catch the “madness” by delving into our varied selection of reading material, as this week, we highlight our Mysteries collection. In center stage we have our own Annie Acorn’s full-length, cozy mystery novel Chocolate Can Kill. 

Chocolate always makes things better, or so Emily Harris believes until even a dozen boxes of her favorite chocolates can’t put her world back together. Returning home from a trip to New Orleans, she is pushed down the airport’s arrival escalator, and despite evidence to the contrary, she believes the push was deliberate. If this weren’t enough her lawyer husband begins to act strangely, her oldest son brings a tramp home as his girlfriend, and two friends are murdered. Simple sayings from her childhood thread their way through her thoughts as she struggles to identify the common denominator, even as she is confined to her home, munching on chocolates.

Filled with the warm southern ambiance and gentle humor that author, Annie Acorn, has made famous, you won’t want to miss this cliffhanger!

Newsprint-to-Footprints_2Next, for your March reading pleasure, we highlight cozy mystery author Elaine Orr’s mysteries. Start with her novel From Newsprint to Footprints, the first offering in her River’s Edge Cozy Mystery series.

“You’re fired!” Grouchy news publisher Hal Morris sends reporter Melanie Perkins packing for taking too many photos of flowers.

Panicked at being unemployed, she lands a job as a landscaper, but an ugly surprise greets her on her first day. A pile of mulch, a tangerine, and a stolen hoe cast suspicion on Melanie.

Demise-of-a-Devious-Neighbor_16x25_finalMelanie’s efforts to find a murderer instead put a target on her back. Some of the aim is coming from law enforcement, but they aren’t the ones who want to silence her permanently. Life along the Des Moines River in Iowa can be peaceful, but a murderer has no problem disturbing her tranquility.

In this, the first novel in beloved cozy mystery writer Elaine Orr’s new River’s Edge series, the author once again offers humor, believable characters and tight prose as she carries the reader to an exciting climax. Those who follow her Jolie Gentil series will find themselves right at home.

You won’t want to miss this one or her second offering in the series Demise of a Devious Neighbor.

Murder-on-the-First16x25Lastly, we suggest Murder on the First Day of Christmas, first full-length, humorous cozy by Billie Thomas in her Chloe Carstairs Mysteries series.

It’s beginning to look a lot like murder.

Finding a severed hand at a client’s house might throw lesser decorators off their games. But Chloe Carstairs and her mother, Amanda, won’t let a little thing like murder keep them from decking the halls. With a body under the partridge’s pear tree and a dead Santa in a sleigh, they have to crack the case before the killer strikes again – this time much too close to home.

Filled with laugh-out-loud humor, romance and a delightfully difficult mother-daughter relationship, this new series from Billie Thomas offers a fast-paced caper as these two southern ladies try to keep their very merry Christmas from turning into the Noel from hell.

Murder-in-a-Two-Seater_revised-16x25Her second mystery novel Murder in a Two-Seater continues the series.

A cheating wife in a classic car drives someone to murder.

Interior decorators turned amateur investigators, Chloe and Amanda Carstairs have spent the summer transforming their client’s creepy old castle into a luxury hotel. But before the first guest checks in, the owner’s wife checks out – with the help of a bullet to the head.

When Chloe’s dad is accused of the crime, there’s no time for the ladies to drown their sorrows in the hotel’s mini bar. Instead, they have to contend with a sneaky blackmailer, an unsolved murder from the past, and a cunning killer with nothing to lose.

The second Chloe Carstairs Mystery is filled with the same clever twists and hilarious mother-daughter relationship that made Murder on the First Day of Christmas such a fun, fast-paced read for an appreciative readership. The mystery will keep you guessing, but as any good decorator will tell you, even a beautiful setting can’t hide the ugly truth.

Happy March Mystery Reading!

A peaceful and serene setting where love flourishes all year round.

Keeping a promise made to her father, Moira Buchanan journeys to Luna Lake Cabins, where they’re nestled alongside the lake that some have called holy and others magical, hoping to find peace and healing.

With a few touches here and there, she creates a temporary home away from home in which to enjoy her Christmas, but a haughty Siamese cat, the impulsive promise of a twelve-year-old girl, and a handsome Scottish laird soon turn all her plans upside down, as she struggles to keep her innermost secret hidden from the one she loves most in the world.

Heading north for the holidays, things certainly hadn’t gone as she had planned. A snowstorm, an apple pie, and an old friend, all conspire to bring her to a crossroads. Will a Christmas Eve detour send her back to her snug village home, or will she forge ahead and let a turn in the road lead her to a newfound happiness?

love-on-the-fast-track_16x25In Love on the Fast Track, Mary Dawson escapes her life in Maine for a long weekend, seeking the solitude and peace of a quaint, oceanfront inn on the beautiful Atlantic shores of Florida.

Romancing the Reader! Historical Romance

All of us at Annie Acorn Publishing LLC want to wish you a Happy February! February is arguable the most romantic month of the year with all things associated with Romance Readers and Writers beloved day – February 14th, Valentine’s Day!

This February AAPub wants to honor the Romance Reader by showcasing some of our classic romantic offerings. For your reading pleasure this week, we’re highlighting a few of our popular historical romance offerings.

In A Prince for Valentine’s, author Merrie Housdon offers the reader a trip back in time to one of princes, kings and St. Valentine’s Day balls.

“Not one girl here worth taking will accept any of our invitations to the St. Valentine’s Day ball, until you’ve chosen your date,” Owen addressed his friend, who had arrived at the university under a royal flag a few months before, his wind-blown, dark hair almost matching the mane of his black stallion. “Last year we were the top choices, but now, all the girls are waiting for you.”

Recognizing his responsibility to choose, Garrett’s gaze traveled around the room, finally settling on the one who had captured his affections.

Will the prince find the courage to follow his heart as his father had, or will he bow to the wishes of his people?

Can love truly conquer all?A-Rose-bao-Name_16x25

Next, for your reading pleasure, we have A Rose by Any Other Name by Angel Nichols.

“Lady, you can’t do that in here!” Alberto Perez shouts into his cab’s rearview mirror, but there really isn’t much he can do. Two hours later, a baby girl enters the world, and so, the story begins.

Eighteen years later, Rose Smith finds herself on the doorstep of a New York City women’s shelter, alone and afraid, but then a handsome stranger with kind eyes befriends her. An old photo, an inherited quest, and a heart-shaped pendant further unite the two young people as they search for answers together.

Internationally beloved, From Women’s Pens author Angel Nichols, known for her The Ghost of Christmas Present and Other Stories, weaves a tangled web and proves once again that love can indeed conquer all.

You don’t want to miss this one!

Snowbound-for-Christmas2_16x25In our own Annie Acorn’s novella, Snowbound for Christmas, travel back in time to post-World War II rural Indiana for a heart-warming tale of Christmas miracles and love.

Hopeful that the back left tire on his truck will hold, Jack Branson begins the last leg of his long journey, desperate to reach his family’s farm and surprise them on Christmas Eve. Nature, though, has other plans for the returning serviceman this snow-filled Christmas. Needing to find shelter, he spots the glow of lights from a small farmhouse and seeks sanctuary from those within. But then, the worn door opens, and…

The slim fingers of Dortha Hudson’s right hand twist the gold band around the ring finger on her left one, as she ponders the decision she must now make. The past four years have been hard ones. Does that mean she should settle for an easy way out, or should she hope for a Christmas miracle?

So begins this latest offering from internationally beloved, From Women’s Pens author Annie Acorn. Set in rural, post-World War II Indiana, her new novella draws on memories of childhood Christmases as she recounts the story of characters destined to delight her eager readership.

Settle yourself into a comfortable chair by the fireplace, sip on a cup of spiced tea, and nibble a gingerbread cookie as you wrap yourself in the love, laughter, family warmth, romance and second chances of an Annie Acorn Christmas. This one you’ll reread every holiday season!the-cow-camp-affair_16x25_final

Readers will love The Cow Camp Affair by D. A. Grady, one of our From Gent’s Pens Authors. Lose yourself in another era, one of the 19th century and western ranch life.

In the 1800s and before, ranchers hired a lone cowpuncher to look after their cattle stuck in the high country for the winter. Normally a lonely assignment, most punchers said, “No!” to such an assignment, but Ben Thomas said, “Yes.”

Soon the job becomes the surprise of his life and the most dangerous, as From Gents’ Pens storyteller D.A. Grady winds the resultant tale around actual happenings of a time long past. A unique telling, The Cow Camp Affair follows the daily living of folks in those days and keeps you turning the page to see if they can make it to the next night.

All the things that you expect from this internationally beloved author – suspense, romance, mystery, and a good dose of humor – are intertwined in a story that will keep you reading until the sun sets on the last page.

The-Christmas-Thief_16x25Rounding out our selections is another offering from Angel Nichols, The Christmas Thief. 

“And if we get caught? What then? Exactly how many families will that feed?”

So opens internationally beloved, From Womens’ Pens author Angel Nichols’ Christmas tale.

Christmastime had always been a sacred time for thieves, but one in particular plans the most daring heist of the eighteenth century as London moves into the new industrial age of electricity.

A cherished jewel, devotion to a best friend, and determination to find the family she never knew all fight for Avonlea’s attention as she finds herself caught in the middle, and this time lives are at stake!

Will she find a way out, or will this be the last heist for The Christmas Thief?

All of us at Annie Acorn Publishing LLC want to wish you a Happy February! February is arguable the most romantic month of the year with all things associated with Romance Readers and Writers beloved day – February 14th, Valentine’s Day!

This February AAPub wants to honor the Romance Reader by showcasing some of our classic romantic offerings. For your reading pleasure this week, we’re highlighting a few of our popular sweet romance offerings.

Pink Lemonade Diary (Pink Lemonade Memories Book 1) – by Juliette Hill offers the Romance Reader a chance to go back to first crushes, first inklings of attraction and first loves. Journey to a place where youth and innocence take center stage, paving the way for meaningful relationships and lasting friendships. Learning from those older and wiser bridges generations, and the younger generation discovers more commonalities than differences exist.

Surprises await thirteen year old Vicki Gray, as her summer vacation begins with an unexpected twist. Having to spend two weeks with her great-aunt Mary on an island off the coast of Georgia, she experiences a lifestyle very different from her own in tech-savvy Manhattan. As she discovers first adventure and then love, Vicki realizes that change isn’t always bad, and that renewing family bonds can create lasting memories which transcend generations.

A Chance with Destiny (Merrie Housdon’s Romance Shorts Book 2) – by Merrie Housdon reminds us that sometimes love finds us when we least expect it, or in the most unusual of circumstances. a-chance-with-destiny_final_16x25

Ever since Adam and Eve, women have been trying new methods to capture the man of their dreams. Still, zapping him with your taser isn’t high on the Top Ten Proven Methods list, so saying that Destiny McAllister and Carson Jacobson had gotten off to a bad start would’ve been one of the world’s greatest understatements.

Enter the storytelling talent of beloved, internationally read, From Women’s Pens author Merrie Housdon, and suddenly life becomes even more complicated. A demanding boss, an adorable pooch, and a few misguided comments – all conspire against a well-deserved happy ending, and yet…

falling-for-niagara_16x25Falling for Niagara: A Cindy’s Crusades Story – by award-winning author Susan Jean Ricci takes us to one of the most iconically romantic setting in the world for a dose of sweet romance.

Niagara Falls – a lovers’ destination if ever there was one, but keep in mind that the world in the award-winning, Cindy’s Crusades series is always a bit topsy-turvy. Given the odds, even the iconic romantic setting may fail to work its magic, as an alpha male who hasn’t bothered to date seriously and a talented young woman who believes she has already seen it all are thrown together in this warm-hearted, stand-alone story.

A pair of binoculars, a chance meeting, and an accommodating waiter all conspire to create a bit of Heaven on Earth as the beloved, From Women’s Pens author Susan Jean Ricci weaves her delightful tale, filled with the love and humor for which this wonderful series is noted.

So grab your raincoat and find a place on one of the fall’s many observation decks. You won’t want to miss this one!

Finally, in A Taste of Love (Juliette Hill’s Shorts Book 1) another selection from Juliette Hill’s offerings, one innocent email could be the beginning of something very sweet for two rising culinary stars! a-taste-of-love_revised

Kelly Palmer is living her dream, as sous chef and sommelier at a restaurant in California’s Napa Valley, until an email from a former classmate changes her plans and re-ignites feelings that still linger in her heart.

Tony Rockland has a culinary dream of his own back in Manhattan, but it’s about to vanish after an unexpected bump in the road, unless he can enlist her help fast!

Can these two chefs team up to create their own recipe for love, or will a secret tucked away for too long destroy their last chance at happiness?

Happy Sweet Romance Reading!
