The Golden Rule

ThegoldenRuleBy:  Deborah J. Solberg

The Golden Rule is a magical tale of an Angel who drops from Heaven with one wing. To earn a second wing, Angel must do a good deed.  The problem? No one can see her.  Not Princess who looks down on Peasant, or Baby Dragon with the tiny roar, or Prince who would rather dance than fight, or Jester with the bad jokes, or Uncle Wizard, who rules an unhappy kingdom.

Angel watches what makes them happy, and begins to create a ‘Golden Rule’ about getting along. ‘Treat others as you want to be treated.’ But Uncle Wizard says they are only words. And words without actions are just words.  Suddenly, Prince leads them in a happy dance, and ‘The Golden Rule’ words come to life. Angel offers to be the Golden Rule Ambassador, and her second wing begins to grow. Soon, Angel flies ‘The Golden Rule’ around the world so everyone on Earth can live, ‘Happily Ever After.’  This fully illustrated picture book is perfect for children ages 4-8.

SometimesBrookeBy:  Sierra Avalon

Getting out of rehab is supposed to be a new beginning, but for Brooke Rhodes it’s more about endings. After her dad fires her from the only job she’s ever had managing his smoothie shop, Brooke finds her college degree in American Studies isn’t useful in gaining any serious prospects for employment. When she’s forced to give up her apartment and her parents refuse to take her in Brooke has only one place to go.

She moves to Scottsdale, Arizona to live with her best friend, Harper Leigh, and Harper’s rock star boyfriend and his bandmates. Living with a rock band isn’t exactly what the doctor ordered for staying clean and sober. And it doesn’t help that the band’s guitar player, Leo Donovan, wants a repeat performance of the one-night stand they had months ago. But staying straight will mean staying as far away from the band as possible and keeping Leo out of her life.

SOMETIMES BROOKE is the second novel in the ALWAYS SOMETIMES NEVER New Adult Rock Star Romance Series. SOMETIMES BROOKE can be read as a standalone novel or as part of the series.
