Colorful new book helps children cope with nighttime fears.

By Joe Hinshaw

“In The Closet and Under the Bed” is a book about children’s imaginations as they confront those scary things that go bump in the night. Through a series of misadventures, our hero negotiates his own settlement that makes everyone happy and secure.

In the Closet and Under the Bed explores the time in life where a boy comes to terms with his own monsters. He is very creative in his solutions and will probably someday be very successful in business. David was a great resource in reconciling the words to the visuals and we joined those visions successfully in his art. Rosie acted as our go between and spent many hours on the phone relaying messages back and forth. During David’s work he suffered a medical crisis and a major surgery. During the middle part of this process he sat at his easel in great pain to produce this wonderful art and story. By this time I think we both had invested in the book from our hearts and nothing would stop its completion. I hope you enjoy it. I hope you can spend that time curled on the bed with your own children and in the end they can make their own peace with their own monsters.
"In the Closet, Under the Bed" can be found at and Don't miss out on this full color, entertaining children's book.

Rising Higher Than Ever Becomes Springboard For New Author

By Marc A. Beausejour

Author and poet Marc A. Beausejour brings readers an inspirational poetry book, equipped with subjects that brings the struggles of young men and women to the forefront. He tackles subjects such as suicide, untimely death, domestic abuse, workplace abuse, early marriage and infidelity, not only through poems but through short story and short author reflections that readers can relate to from an emotional standpoint. Using verses from the New Living Translation Bible to encourage and uplift others, it is a book that may not only serve as a testimony to Christian and spiritual readers, but also plants seeds of hope in those in search of it

Julius Anderson is a top contending boxer going up against boxing champion Lee Randall for the title. However when Lee shows his superiority in the ring and knocks Julius out in their first match, Julius begins to doubt himself and his abilities. Will he ever find the courage to step back in the ring and challenge Lee to a momentum-swinging rematch? To Tia Anderson, Randy Mays was the one for her. Funny, charming and sexy. But sometimes, when something looks and feels too good to be true, it most likely is and it was no different in Tia's case as the mask comes off and Randy shows her a much darker side of him. Can Tia find herself out of her situation, or will Randy's dark side endanger her life?
A poetry book that is not just a poetry book. With short stories inspired from the poems, Beausejour brings a spiritual, inspirational dimension to both poetry fans and short story fans.

A children’s book based on the teachings of A Course in Miracles

By Raveena Nash

A Tale of Truth is a children’s book based on the teachings of the spiritual masterpiece, A Course in Miracles.

Adam is a nine-year-old who comes across a wise old man called Joshua, as he wanders down a country lane. Joshua teaches Adam about the Separation, according to A Course in Miracles, and about the oneness of all people with each other and with God. Adam asks questions about conflict, the deeds that some people carry out and about the wars and strife that he sees on television. Joshua explains that the ego created a world of chaos and conflict by sending out these thoughts into the world through projection. He also talks about the need to protect Mother Earth and about true prayer, and he discusses a few of the Workbook Lessons of A Course in Miracles with Adam. In addition, Joshua explains how forgiveness helps us awaken from the dream of separation and return to Heaven.
A Tale of Truth is the perfect introduction to A Course in Miracles for children. It simplifies the teachings of this great spiritual work and makes it accessible to them in a light-hearted manner.

By Benjamin Wermund

George R.R. Martin, author of the “Game of Thrones” book series which spawned a monster HBO hit show, is donating his first-edition copy of J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit” to the Texas A&M University library.

Texas A&M University Libraries Friday acquired its five millionth volume, a rare first-edition of J.R.R. Tolkien’s 1937 classic The Hobbit—a gift from award-winning sci-fi/fantasy author George R.R. Martin, creator of the best-selling book series “Game of Thrones.” “Over the last two decades the A&M Libraries has become one of the top 10 publicly-supported research libraries in this country [Association of Research Libraries (ARL) ranking] and this five millionth volume symbolizes that maturity as well as the depth our collections,” says David Carlson, dean of University Libraries.
"The Hobbit" First edition has become part of Texas A&M's University Libraries' Science Fiction and Fantasy Genre in the Research Collection, housed in the Cushing Memorial Library and Archives.
