7 Ways to Get Boys to Read

Many studies show there is a big gender gap among children when it comes to reading, and it’s growing at an alarming rate.

According to a recent report from the Center on Education Policy, substantially more boys than girls score below the proficiency level on the annual National Assessment of Educational Progress reading test.

The report also shows the gender gap exists in every socioeconomic and ethnic category, including the children of white, college-educated parents.

“The good news is we’ve started to pay more attention to this problem and fortunately there are plenty of good ideas for solving it,” says L. A. Miller, author of the science-fiction and fantasy YA book series the Quests of Shadowind, which includes “Sky Shifter,” “The Grounding Stone,” and “Veil.”

Quests of Shadowind is the story of a group of kids who are abducted to an alien world called Shadowind, which is inhabited by ghostly creatures, cyborg animals, and virtual humans—a land where anything is possible, including being downloaded into a cryptic, evil, role-playing game. In order to survive, the teens band together as they search for a way back home. Ultimately they must battle a sinister cyber lord for a powerful weapon that could destroy the universe.

Mr. Miller believes “kids, especially boys, will read more if we cater to their lifestyles, interests, and concerns. After all this is a generation focused on smartphones, games, the Internet, and social networking, and they show a lot of precocity and independence.”

Last year First Lady Michelle Obama joined Education Secretary Arne Duncan and celebrities at the Library of Congress to kick off Read Across America Day.

“In our house we read all the time,” Mrs. Obama said at the event. “President Obama is called the ‘fact guy’ because he reads all the time.”

“It’s obvious that it’s parents’ responsibility to encourage their children to read more, and that means getting involved themselves. They cannot try to make their kids read while Mom and Dad are watching television or cruising on the computer,” says L. A. Miller. “If you want children to read, as a parent you should do the same and be a role model.”

Here are some ways to make boys and girls read more:

* Take them regularly to libraries
* Take them regularly to bookstores
* Steer kids to books based on their interests
* Let them choose their own books
* Be a role model–make sure you read too
* Read together
* Schedule daily reading times (e.g., 30 minutes per day)

“Parents and schools need to take the reading deficiency problem more seriously. Reading is a very necessary and important thing in children’s lives,” says L. A. Miller.

L.A. Miller has been writing for more than forty years. His backgrounds in science fiction, astronomy, technology, and classic literature inform his work, which has included novels, short stories and music. He is the owner of Wood n Nails Music and lives in Las Cruces, New Mexico, with his wife and two dogs. He is the author of the Quests of Shadowind series, which include “Sky Shifter,” “The Grounding Stone,” and “Veil.”

For more information contact L.A. Miller at qosauthor@gmail.com or visitwww.QuestsofShadowind.com.

“Sky Shifter,” “The Grounding Stone,” and “Veil” are available Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com.

Praise Posted on Amazon.com:

Superb! Superb! Superb! March 28, 2011I read this book at least once a year. I am now in my fourth reading since purchasing it. You will fall in love with this large, Irish Catholic family, as I have. Jim and Kathleen Littleton are devout Catholics who have not been afraid to make radical choices when it comes to living a Christ-centered life or raising a family in such a way that goes completely against the grain of the dominant culture. They have been such an inspiration to me. In fact, after my husband read this book, he decided to become a Catholic! The Littletons have 14 living children. In this book, they will share with you what they are convinced are God’s Hierarchy of Values, namely, God, Spouse, Children, Work, and then Service Work/Apostolate. They also discuss Marriage, Motherhood, Openness to Life, Formation of Children, Service, Cross-Carrying, and the necessity of possessing a sense of humor. Whenever I become discouraged as a parent, I know that it’s time to take this book off of the shelf and read it again. It is the only Catholic book on parenting and devotion that I continue to read over and over again. I eagerly await their next book, and hope that one day, there will be one. 5.0 out of 5 stars Superb! Superb! Superb! March 28, 2011 By Tara ( Alamogordo, NM)

Jim and Kathleen are a beautiful example of understanding, living, and teaching the Catholic faith. I felt like I wanted to be adopted by them! 5.0 out of 5 stars Motivating, October 12, 2007 By Suzanne Earl St. Joseph, pray for us! ( Illinois )

This book is proof that current cultural wisdom is wrong and that the Catholic teaching on openness to life is right. Who knows better, you or God? The Littletons are an excellent example of the generosity God is asking for. One important lesson pointed out by James and Kathleen Littleton is that the world looks at children as a burden which actually belittles the contribution that children bring. They are not just empty stomachs and brains demanding to be fed and sent to college. They are persons who contribute to the family from the day they are brought into it–and more and more as they mature. This book was like a pleasant stroll through a different world in which values were properly prioritized. I only wish there were more anecdotes about the children’s interaction with each other and the hostile world. I loved the one about two older kids saving 10 seats in a theater during the previews while the younger ones waited in the lobby so they didn’t have to look at all the junk in the previews. A good gift for your teenaged sons and daughters. A mandatory gift for Pre-Cana classes. Good idea for Engaged- and Marriage Encounter Weekend attendees. Five Stars Countercultural May 21, 2012 By Jeffery R. King.

1970s Las Vegas Chronicled in Graphic New Memoir

Local Author Marlayna Glynn Brown grew up in the 1970s Las Vegas mafia casino era. Her first memoir, Overlay, reveals an intriguing narrative of a strong child protagonist born into an ongoing cycle of alcoholism and abandonment amidst fallen adults. Marlayna describes a childhood that enabled her to develop a powerful sense of self-preservation as the people entrusted with her care abdicated their responsibilities. Her story reveals the personalities of the bizarre cast of characters that populated her life as she moved from home to home, parent to parent, family to family and ultimately to homelessness at the age of fourteen. Overlay will appeal to fans of the movie Casino and readers who prefer a strong journalistic storytelling style that does not delve into pity.

“Overlay isn’t just about me and my story,” Marlayna explains. “It provides an opportunity for the reader to examine their choices, decisions and actions and consider how they affect others. We often underestimate our power to transform those around us – at times irrevocably.”

Marlayna’s story is relevant and inspirational for anyone with a family member struggling with alcoholism or addiction. Parents and children will easily relate to Marlayna’s haunting and riveting tales of trying to make childhood sense of adult nonsensical behavior. Her powerful story will captivate readers and remain in their consciousness long after the last page of her story has been turned.

“I’ve been humbled and surprised by the outpouring of emotion from the readers. As a child I felt quite alone in dealing with the dysfunctional insanity in my family. I’ve learned as an adult that I was not as unique or alone as I’d previously believed,” Marlayna states.

The Fairytale Keeper series: Not Your Average Fairy Tale Retelling

It’s a Grimm situation in the entertainment world these days. Literally. Grimm fairy tale retellings have taken over movie screens, television sets, and books shelves. From steam punk to comedy, and fantasy to science fiction, it seems fairy tales have seeped into every genre available this year.

Upon first glance, one might wonder what makes Andrea Cefalo’s The Fairytale Keeper: Avenging the Queen stand out from the crowd. It’s young adult historical fiction, which isn’t exactly original when it comes to fairytale retellings, but Cefalo doesn’t stick to just one of Grimm’s fairy tales in her Fairytale Keeper series. She supposes the most noted of these stories (Snow White, Cinderella, The Elves and the Shoemaker etc.) come from one person, a spitfire cobbler’s apprentice and novice story teller living in thirteenth century Germany. “I want the reader to believe that it’s possible for one person to have come up with all these tales,” say Cefalo.“To do that, I had to develop realistic characters and a historically-accurate setting.”

Fifteen year-old Adelaide, who will one day be immortalized in the story of Snow White, narrates this coming-of-age tale in which she quickly and harshly learns how corrupt her beloved home city of Cologne has become. Adelaide’s deep loyalty to her loved ones reveals itself through her confliction as she chooses between fighting the corruption and avenging her mother or keeping her father, friends, and her first love safe from the enemy.

The Fairytale Keeper series paints medieval Cologne vividly and develops a set of dynamic characters, bringing the famous villains, heroes, and damsels of Grimm’s fairy tales to life. Cinderella happens to be Adelaide’s self-indulgent, yet well-meaning cousin and her drunkard, yet hard-working father is the Shoemaker from the famous Elves and the Shoemaker story. However, not all main characters are cast into a Grimm fairy tale role yet. The role of Adelaide’s love interest, Ivo, is up in the air. Will he be the Prince in the Snow White story or some other character? When asked about Ivo’s role, Cefalo says, “Time will tell. There are going to be four books in the series. It’s funny. Most of the time the story writes itself and it would be wrong of me to assume that Ivo will end up a certain way.”

By the end, historical events and real people from the time period are so artfully woven into the retellings the reader will be left wondering if this is fact or fiction, making The Fairytale Keeper: Avenging the Queen a convincing and compelling fairy tale retelling.

The Fairytale Keeper: Avenging the Queen is set for release on June 1, 2012. It can be pre-ordered through the author’s website: www.andreacefalo.com or purchased in local bookstores and through online book retailers for 11.99 plus shipping and handling. For the latest news on this series, follow the author, Andrea Cefalo, on her website, Facebook fan page (www.facebook.com/andreacefalo), and on Twitter (www.twitter.com/#!/AndreaCefalo).

Ex-‘World’s Youngest Author’ Publishes Second Novel, eBook

In December 1995, Marcus Gibson’s literary thriller ‘D’ was published by HarperCollins Publishers 3 weeks after his 22nd birthday, breaking the standing Guinness World Record for the world’s ‘youngest novelist writing adult-themed work’ by 2 years. The record was held at that time by Jennifer DiMarco, whose book ‘Escape the Wind’ was published two years prior, at age 24.

“I received the Guinness paperwork”, explains Gibson. “But decided not to fill it in. I wanted my work read in the same way as any other adult novelist.”

Now, sixteen years later, Gibson has published his second novel ‘The Dead See’ as an ebook, on the iTunes iBookstore, Amazon Kindle, and Barnes & Noble NOOK books.

“The ‘tree book’ is dead,” adds Gibson. “I’ve been dealing with publishers and agents for seventeen years. With ebooks I have more control over the work, the audience is global, it’s faster to market, more economical for readers, has significant environmental benefits, and it’s a fundamentally more efficient operational model. The old way of doing things is also inherently inequitable for authors, readers, and the planet. And inequitable systems always eventually fail.”

In ‘The Dead See’, the main character seeks to end terrorism by ending religion, after he stumbles on a 5000-year-old secret that connects the religions of 3 billion Jews, Catholics, Protestants, and Muslims. The novel is based on discoveries made by the author while attending Baptist seminary, at age 17. The novel ventures deep into the origins of monotheism, and the conflicts that still plague the modern world.

“I completed the manuscript in 2001,” says Gibson. “However, the novel featured acts of terrorism by Osama Bin Laden. Within weeks of circulating the manuscript, Al Qaeda launched coordinated attacks in New York City and the Washington D.C. area. If ebooks had been available in 2001, this novel would have been released on September 10.

“It would have been profoundly insensitive to publish ‘The Dead See’ in the aftermath of such a dreadful loss of life,” adds Gibson. “Now, ten years have passed, and I believe more than ever this is a story that needs to be told.”

Marcus Gibson is now 37 years of age and lives in Melbourne, Australia. His professional career has spanned construction worker, script editor, presenter, corporate spokesperson, producer, software developer, business analyst, knowledge manager, sustainability advisor, and environmental manager in a range of sectors including IT, pharmaceuticals, property and finance, civil engineering, and construction. He is a member of the high IQ society Mensa.

Gibson’s third novel ‘The Peace Bomb’ is scheduled for ebook release in late 2011.

New Novel Confronts Contemporary Scientific Theories With Biblical Scripture

New Author Derrick G. Lindsey’s novel Watchers of the Rainbow Covenant confronts paranormal phenomena and science with Biblical scripture. One of the great anomalies of our modern time, is that atheists attack the Bible as being full of “ignorance” and a tool written by ignorant men “to enslave” those who believe. This could not be further from the truth. Even if you don’t believe in divine inspiration, the writers were the greatest minds of their time. The greatest philosophers, statesmen, planners, organizers, military leaders, and “yes” even scientist of their day. Theirs was cutting edge thinking in a constantly changing world of demagogies, wars, famines, and new scientific discoveries. Much like the world we live in today.

Derrick G. Lindsey explodes onto the literary scene with a compelling, fast paced and suspenseful novel set in a dynamic future. What is truly fascinating is how it confronts cutting edge theories of today on the creation of the universe with the Biblical accounts of creation.

The story is a step by step mystery that evolves, but the science is what is ground breaking. A true fusion of the two trains of thought (Religion and Science) which actually are very complementary to each other.

Paranormal phenomena folklore dating back thousands of years, and presented in theories and in the media today are brought face to face with the ageless text of the Bible.

Watchers of the Rainbow Covenant is a joy ride on a fast plane into a world 200 years from today. One need not be a Biblical scholar or a science fan of the latest theories to enjoy it. One merely has to love science fiction and you will love this novel.

Lord Why is Grandma Driving in the Left Lane?

In Tyrone Short’s newest book ‘Lord Why is Grandma Driving in the Left Lane?’ he expresses his views on one of America’s leading problems, ‘Grandma’ and the many foolish drivers that congest the left lane of our roads and highways.

Tyrone Short announces ‘Lord Why is Grandma Driving in the Left Lane?’ in conjunction with Lulu (www.Lulu), the world’s fastest-growing provider of print-on demand books.

In his own words, “It is bad enough to have to deal with the volume of traffic during rush hour, but to have to deal with grandma and the many foolish drivers that flock and linger in the passing lane is despicable. It is amazing that our roads have not become one big battlefield.”

In his collective thoughts, Tyrone Short takes an introspective and risky stance at what may be considered a controversial topic for a Christian writer. Nevertheless, this thought provoking book is well-timed for what is going on in the nation today and it has the capability to transform many to a healthier and more productive outlook in regards to this issue.

Lord Why is Grandma Driving in the Left Lane is available for purchase at www.Lulu.com/PrinceTrog.

The novel, HUMAN TRIAL II: ADAM’S WAR, goes on sale May 31 at amazon.com, allthingsthatmatterpress.com and through local bookstores.

The book also received numerous positive reviews at amazon.com and goodreads.com.

Human Trial told the story of a scattershot group of survivors of an alien-initiated thermal war who must not only battle their unseen nemesis, but also their own fears and prejudices. The group is headed by Daron Turner and his co-worker and mother of a newborn named Adam. Part two finds the remnants of that group making a cross-country trek to Big Springs , Nebraska, to unite with others in an attempt to rebuild American society.

In Big Springs Daron immediates butts heads with the colony’s leader, a megalomaniac named J.D. Cooks, who has plans to make himself the ruler of a burgeoning world empire. Cooks and Turner engage in an epic clash of wills, and over time Daron and his friends discover that his nemesis is collaborating with aliens to destroy human life.

Daron and Regina’s son, Adam, now twenty—leads a revolt against Cooks and his loyalists. Later, Daron leads a splinter group in an attack on another alien enclave in Winslow Rock, New Mexico. At the same time, Adam leads his contingent south, into Mexico, for a final battle with aliens that will determine the fate of man.

Erik Flores Releases the Finest Novel to Ever Mash Up Self-Help and Adventure!

From the Neck Up (May 2010: Eldrecko Press) is a hilarious new novel that shows the disastrous side effects of worldwide success.

What happened to America’s most beloved public speaker, Martin Romaine, whose doves fly so freely at the finale of his stadium-filled shows? How did he get lost in the middle of the Florida Everglades? Who will fill the shoes of the man with the golden throat and chestnut locks? Family, friends, and fans of Mr. Romaine converge and vie for the ego of a nation where has-been’s and never-will-be’s seek to re-define their lives, despite the havoc it wreaks. From the Neck Up reveals what happens when everyone attains their notion of success.

Praise for From the Neck Up…

“Erik has captured the essence of what is pathetic, sad and yet funny about American capitalism. In the end, greed consumes the nation like a snake eating its tail. If the curse of the twenty-first century is narcissism, this homage to the self-help book, captures that narcissism exquisitely. We are nested inside the neediness of the American psyche for more, more, more. Yet our protagonists Marty and Joe are so close to us that we can’t help feeling laughter rising with self loathing. This is Bonfire of Vanities for the twenty-first century. This is the way the world ends, not with a bang but a whimper.”

Mexican Author Goes Online With Latest Work And Hits All Times Download High

Mr. Volnie is the author of a dozen of successful published fiction novels, ranging in themes as diverse as Sci-Fi, History, mysticism or police procedures, all of them received enthusiastically by his ever growing number of followers and fans.

This time, he has surprised his readers with a reconstruction of the Gospels, a recreation of the antique scriptures as analyzed from a rational, critical, sometimes hermetic point of view. Mr. Volnie’s version of the story leaves little room for faith, as miracles are unveiled, prophecies are explained and underlying motifs gradually surface to meet with human nature.

As for the reason to give away his writing instead of making profit, the author explains in his blog www.alejandrovolnie.com.mx (translated from Spanish): “A fast spread of my work throughout the Spanish speaking world is worth giving up the down payment of any publisher”. It is to be said that printed books are expensive in Latin America if its price is compared to people’s average daily income. “My work is for everybody and I don’t expect anything else in exchange than the comments of my readers” he also states in his blog.

To download Yehoshua el mago (Yehoshua the Magician) in Spanish simply go to www.yehoshuaelmago.com.mx and follow the instructions. This is the only way to get it at the present time, although it’s easy to foresee that printed copies of this fifteen hour reading will soon be piled up in most bookstores all around the world, available in several languages, as this amazing tale deserves it.
