Children’s Book Spotlight and Giveaway: “The Day That A Ran Away”

Book Description

While Mrs May is checking her students’ homework, she notices that Jet hasn’t managed to write down the letters of the alphabet. Instead of providing a familiar excuse, Jet offers Mrs May an elaborate story about how every letter happened to leave his page while he was walking to school that morning.

The Day That A Ran Away clearly and cleverly moves through the alphabet from A to Z. Each page has a number of items to find and the simple rhyme on each page will help readers remember the letter sequence. The story also touches gently on the concept of homework and the importance of making an effort.

The Day That A Ran Away will be available September 1st, 2018 in hardcover, paperback, Kindle and ePub through all major online retailers.

Guest Blogger, Nick Ortner from The Tapping Solution

Personal wellness is something that we all strive for in our lives. But for our children, providing teachable moments to help live loving, peaceful lives is every parent’s goal. We want the best for our little loves!

This is our goal at The Tapping Solution. We provide programs, books and guides about EFT Tapping, which is a powerful holistic healing technique that uses principles of acupressure and modern psychology (similar to affirmations). Here is a sample of it being used in a school:

We’d also love for you to take a moment and check out our children’s book collection! Teaching kids how to breathe mindfully to let go of stress and their bad feelings is the inspiration behind my newest children’s book called My Magic Breath: Finding Calm Through Mindful Breathing, available on May 15, 2018. The colorful pictures provide a fun way to find balance in our world, simply by breathing and using your magic breath to release the stress we all have. Click here for a list of tips to teach your kids mindful breathing.My Magic Breath-1.jpg

The Big Book of Hugs is another great story for your youngsters that highlights how to help others, simply by being there. Join Barkley the Bear as he prepares to take on the family business of hugging his forest friends. Barkley worries that he will not be able to provide the care necessary for everyone, but he soon finds out how easy and rewarding it is to help others.

If you are interested in teaching your little ones the EFT Tapping Process, Gorilla Thumps and Bear Hugs: A Tapping Solution Children’s Story, written by my brother, Alex Ortner, is a great option for you. In this book, a little girl named Annabel has been teased by other children, which has left her feeling sad and hurt. She learns to use the magical tapping technique to quickly release her sadness and regain her confidence. If you’re familiar with tapping, then you know that you tap on 9 pressure points on your body. The tapping process is taught through fun descriptions and illustrations for each tapping point, such as the Dragon Fire Point, which is my personal favorite. 🙂

If you feel that EFT Tapping is something that would benefit your child or even you as a parent, you may want to check out a new resource guide that has over a hundred tapping scripts for parents, children, and teenagers. The Tapping Solution for Parents, Children & Teenagers is a How-To guide for families willing to try this amazing technique. The scripts are categorized by specific social and emotional challenges such as dealing with divorce or bullying, so whatever issue you may be faced with, we most likely have it available for you.

The Tapping Solution was truly created to help others. We have tons of resources available to help you get started and a dedicated, caring team that understands the value of tapping and getting our message out. If you have any questions or want more information, please reach out to us at You can also find more information on our website and by following us on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

Adventures of Little Yaga and Her Friends: Spotlight and Giveaway

Little Yaga.jpg

Guest Blogger, L. B. O’Milla 

The protagonist in my book is a girl, but there is an equal collaboration between girls and boys that help the teens to reach their goals. Dealing with their enemies the main characters find non-violent and peaceful solutions and compromises. The group of friends in the book consists of the foresters and humans, who do not only look different, but also come from totally different cultural backgrounds. Nevertheless, the teens embrace their differences and use them to their advantage in helping each other and those in need.

The story is entertaining, uplifting, humorous, and gripping. It’s an easy read, yet, its language is rich and poetic. The book teaches lessons of friendship, kindness, and determination and shows readers that “old-fashioned” values of trust, care, teamwork, acceptance, and love are still as important as ever, because they are the building blocks of the thriving and humane societies.

Little Yaga, is a main character of my book, Adventures of Little Yaga and Her Friends. She is a teenager who lives with her old hag of a grandmother. Their house is situated on top of a chicken leg, deep within the Enchanted Forest. Little Yaga is troubled by her appearance. While all the other Forest creatures have magnificent fangs, thunderous roars, and bony legs, she looks like a human. She even wears custom crafted dentures to give herself fangs. In her quest to fit in with the Foresters, Little Yaga listens to her great-aunt, an old enchantress, and travels to the human world where she meets a group of teenagers on the run from an evil sorcerer. Together with her new friends she returns to the Forest.

Scraggard the Immortal, the ruler of the Forest, sustains himself on human energy to remain immortal. When he captures Ashley, a human girl, Little Yaga takes pity on her. She gathers a group of both old friends and new to help Ashley escape from Scraggard and save the Forest from his malevolent reign.

As Little Yaga discovers the secrets of her forest home and her own origins, she comes into contact with creatures and settings straight out of Russian fables and mythology.

Best fit for readers: Middle grade/YA Fantasy/Adventure

Author Bio:

B. O’Milla was born in Kiev, Ukraine (back then a part of Russia), and loved to read and write from an early age. Her dream was to become a writer, but due to the religious and ethnic persecution she faced, she was unable to pursue that dream in her motherland. When she was 26 years old, she with her husband and daughter fled the country. They wound up first in Vienna, Austria, then in Rome, Italy, until finally coming to America as refugees.

In the US, she graduated from NYU and worked as a physical therapist all while raising her family, but she never gave up her love of writing. Having grown up in a family that exposed her to literature, the arts, and music, O’Milla enjoyed Russian folklore and its characters. She worked very hard to learn English, so she could write in English, the language of her new country.
