A Yellow Jellow, What Did You Say? (Second Edition), by J. Kaylin. (Still free?)

Looking for a colorful, Seuss-like children's book? This one has been popular over the years and is free today.

"Each poem in the book has an illustration. The illustrations are very good pen and ink drawings that are very detailed and very imaginative. These are some of the best illustrations I've ever seen in a children's book, and I've seen a lot of children's books! The poems themselves are fun, too. They are full of witty and ingenuous rhymes and word play. The rhythm of the poems is fun, and helps to move the stories along. It is easy to visualize the poems because J Kaylin is an artist who paints with words. " -- Peggy, Amazon reviewer


Author and Illustrator JKaylin would like to introduce you to The Murgle-Flurgle-Flickity-Tickity-Tat, The Nutton Glutton, and The Greatest Me!. "A Yellow Jellow, What Did You Say'" is a delightful ensemble of children's poetical humor bearing the name of JKaylin.

This highly read slim paperback quickly emptied off bookstore shelves with its first publication in 1994. Yet aimed at an audience of children 3 thru 8, people of all ages still enjoy this inspirational packed volume of encouragement, silliness, wit, and humor. "A Yellow Jellow, What Did You Say'" is indeed a novel approach to children's literature.
Author JKaylin's close understanding of children and the child within in us all is evident in this delightfully written and simply illustrated children's book. JKaylin has carefully put into these pages a liberal amount of insight, warmth, and laughter. He then has sprinkled them all with the essence of Dr. Seuss and Shel Silverstein.

Though this book is purely fun for its non-sense and silly wit, the content of "A Yellow Jellow, What Did You Say'" is also meant to encourage a child to think of themselves as something special, as they learn to discover and appreciate the wonder, awe, and magic of the highly versatile English language and the written word.

JKaylin is an author being described by some professional editors as the next generation in word play and funniness since the humorist writer of the 1920's, Ogden Nash. "A Yellow Jellow, What Did You Say'" is an asset to any library, including any digital book library that you'll want to take with you where ever you go.

To Love a Thief (Secrets & Scandals), by Darcy Burke. (Still free?)

This short romantic tale is based in Victorian England. From bestselling novelist Darcy Burke, and free today!

"The instant attraction sends sparks flying and the action keeps this couple coming back together. Lies are told but truths are quickly revealed as well which I appreciated. I liked how Daniel has been a constable and inherited a title he never expected to have or want and this is an area I would have liked just a bit more about, but again, it worked well within this novella. Daniel is smart, loyal and confident and a wonderful foil to Jocelyn and her bold nature. You know who the villain is but how it all unraveled was a delight. This novella has it all--action, romance, love and passion. We get just enough glimpses of one of the upcoming heroes and I am very anxious to see how Ms Burke redeems him! Lovely story for a lovely price. 4 stars." -- Lisa Wolff, Amazon reviewer

To set things right, she has to be very wrong…

Former constable Daniel Carlyle hasn’t the foggiest notion how to be a viscount. No one is more shocked than he when his father’s second cousin and his son die on the same day. When a prominent earl offers to guide Daniel through Society and the House of Lords, he’s grateful to have a champion. Things seem to be falling into place when he meets a lovely young woman he intends to make his viscountess. Until he catches her stealing from his mentor.

The moment Jocelyn Renwick glimpses her family's stolen heirlooms in the possession of a wealthy earl, she demands their return. He dismissively insists they’ve been in his family for generations, and she privately vows to get them back at any cost. But the law-abiding Lord Carlyle foils her plans, and she reluctantly partners with him to solve the theft of her property. When they discover the earl is up to his ears in criminal acts, he threatens to link Daniel to his gang of thieves. Jocelyn must decide if justice for her family is worth risking a chance at love.

This uplifting book, free today, takes you on a journey through war-torn Korea. "A literary gem."

"Tendrils of Life strummed and plucked at my heartstrings like a well-played harp. Choi wrote from the heart: he did not belittle suffering but did not sensationalize pain. This uplifting story used themes of love and kindness with frank, stoic tones to celebrate human resilience at a difficult time in Korea's history." -- Celina Cuadro, BookIdeas


Acute food shortages and lawlessness plague communist-occupied Seoul at the start of the Korean War in 1950. Jimin, a sixteen-year-old boy, aches to return to the safety of his old home on Ockdo (Jade Island), a remote island he'd left five years earlier. But only his father, who is absent from home, knows the way.

His adversary, a man who's been plotting to wipe out Jimin's family and steal their island, brings a tragedy and tries to eliminate him, forcing him to traverse the war-torn country on foot with his seven-year-old sister to find his father. But the war sweeps across the country multiple times and hinders them from meeting up with their father.

Back in Seoul, with Chinese troops (who invade the country to prop up the communists) bearing down on them, Jimin is forced to join the army, leaving his sister alone, hungry, and homeless in the cold, bomb-devastated city. During a long march, Jimin succumbs to hunger and fatigue and is left to die at a roadside house. He is rescued by a girl he loves, but the war, his adversary, and personal misfortunes continue to thwart his goal of returning to his island with his girl, father, and sister. He miraculously survives a massacre and an epidemic of relapsing fever and undergoes other gut-wrenching trials. He finally stumbles on his father, who is very ill with tuberculosis, and he must overcome formidable obstacles to return to Ockdo.

With action and suspense, Tendrils of Life is a rich and intriguing upmarket fiction, interwoven with gripping character-oriented narratives and full of visual detail. It's a story of love and hope, greed and revenge, and the quest for survival in the turmoil of war - a depiction of resilience of the human spirit.
