Life in the Palace

Life in the Palace by Catherine Green 

“We need to talk,” Tal said. Then I knew it was going to go badly. ‘We need to talk’ is the conversational equivalent of walking into your basement without turning on the light, on a dark and stormy night, when a known psychopath is on the loose. You might as well cut to the chase and slit your own throat.

Chloe Diaz assumed three things: that when Tal said that she was one of The People sent from heaven to maintain the cosmic balance, it was code for ‘I’m a pamphlet distributing, incense burning, religious weirdo;’ that the gorgeous Seth Wilks would never be her soul mate and that she’d never have to choose between them.

Chloe was wrong. Now the future of the world is in her hands, but what if price is too great to pay?

After a lifetime in the shadow of her sister, Chloe is severely phobic of the chronically cool. Seth is everything she avoids; a pre-med philosophy major who works in a bar, plays in a band and is so good looking that grown women stare at him in the street. But it’s hard to say no to your soul mate. Thinking she’s maxed out her supply of destiny, Chloe settles down to enjoy the happily-ever-after.  

Tal says that she’s one of The People sent from heaven to maintain the cosmic balance. Chloe assumes this is code for ‘I’m a pamphlet distributing, incense burning, religious weirdo.’ Actually Tal’s main extracurricular activity is fighting the forces of Oblivion. The People never need to hide what they are because no one ever believes them. Until Chloe does.  

Chloe sets out to help Tal and The People as much as she can as an outsider. Seth says as long as no one wears their underpants on the outside Chloe can do what she likes. What he doesn’t say is that he’s also one of The People, although non-practicing. But as the Final Battle draws nearer, Chloe realizes it’s time for Seth to go collect his regulation sword. The only thing standing in his way is her. Seth says he’ll give up his place in heaven to stay with her. Chloe must choose between Seth’s soul and her own happiness.  

If you are a fan of fantasy novels, this is one to add to your list!! On Amazon, this has got a 4 star rating!

About Author D. Robert Pease

D. Robert Pease
D. Robert Pease has been interested in creating worlds since childhood. From building in the sandbox behind his house, to drawing fantastical worlds with paper and pencil, there has hardly been a time he hasn't been off on some adventure in his mind, to the dismay of parents and teachers alike. Also, since the moment he could read, books have consumed vast swaths of his life. From The Mouse and the Motorcycle, to The Lord of the Rings, worlds just beyond reality have called to him like Homer's Sirens. It's not surprising then he chose to write stories of his own. Each filled with worlds just beyond reach, but close enough we can all catch a glimpse of ourselves in the characters he brings to life.

Selecting Book Publications for Schools

Selecting Book Publications For Schools

Some of the best publishing companies print out textbooks and other reading material that are based on specific language comprehension. For example, multiple editions of a single textbook may be published for a particular grade. After all, students in the same grade may have different reading abilities. Therefore, book publishers take into consideration the various comprehension skills of all students of a certain age group. Students that have relatively weak reading skills are encouraged to use books that have extra footnotes and illustrations. The vocabulary and context of particular subject are presented differently in multiple editions of a single textbook. Guided reading in the classroom is done by teachers that help students to read assigned material. A teacher may ask a student to read text from a book out loud.

Teachers of primary and secondary schools are encouraged to shop around for textbooks and books from the most reputable publishers. These days, online shops make it easy for educators to preview the books that will be used in the classroom. For example, multiple preview pages can be digitally downloaded onto a computer or tablet device. Teachers have the chance to compare different editions of a textbook before making bulk orders. Sometimes, free digital copies are available for download when multiple orders on hardcover books are made. Therefore, a teacher may refer to a computer or tablet device while teaching a lesson. However, students are usually encouraged to bring in the actual books to class instead of relying on e-book versions.
