Oh, the wonderful Month of May!

Uncategorized No Comments »

May flowers make me happy!  It’s rainy out and has been for sometime, but when the clouds part a bit and allow the sun to come out-oh what a feeling of happy comes over me!

The Siamese mother, Blue, had three adorable kittens about a week ago; their eyes aren’t open yet but I’ll get you a picture as soon as I can.  Mom’s pretty protective of the little fellas.

I am very pleased at some of the questions being asked-comments are good and I will get to answer some of them today.  I just finished sending out some announcements on freebies and specials to our email subscribers, so hopefully some of you will be the recipients of those.  Saving money is always a good thing, when possible and this month we have three specials.  More on the book page about those.

I’ve been doing some pretty intensive gardening lately- putting together a side yard shade garden, getting rid of all the winter gunk, adding perennials, and a picnic table or two, so we can start holding all day retreats for friends and fans.  The first is scheduled for June, and I’ll give you all the info as soon as it’s ready.  I’d love to meet some of your there.

In the meantime, check out our other pages and we’ll keep you up on all the news.  Happy spring!

It’s Raining Outside!

However, it’s been a lovely spring for the last couple days-and the crocus are just marvelous.  Our barn cat has kittened again-cute little fellas-looks like at least one long haired grey one. She has nice kittens: scrappy little guys.  And this is Tbear helping me organize some fiber for sale from our alpaca: this is the roving from one animal-it looks like lots but it weighs less than five pounds.

So while we were distracted, I suddenly remembered that this week, starting tomorrow the 8th, we have another freebie for our fans and I forgot to let you know!  This month’s freebie for our fans is a free download of our 2nd book, Terrorists, Traitors and Spies-and we’d love you to download it, read it and send us a review.  We have a goal of getting at least 10 reviews from this download-so go to Amazon, type in J. Traveler Pelton, download your copy April 8, Monday, start reading and post us a review-can’t wait to see them! And don’t forget to go to the free chapter page for a preview of the book.

Book two is in the roaring 20-50s!

And in the meantime, Tbear and I have to get the fleeces sorted for sale, and we need to move the kittens to a safer place, and I just want to take a

minute to look at the flowers-

Another Freebie for Our Fans!

Our first medieval future fantasy

Starting April one and running for five days on freebooksey and on Amazon, Clan Falconer’s War is going to be running as a free download for all those of our  fans who love medieval fantasy.  Set in the future after the Shining war threw us all back to the Middle Ages, this book takes us all back to what could be our future, a world of magik, mutations and clan wars.  It’s the first book in what will be a three book series, a trilogy.  We hope you enjoy it on those rainy spring days when you can’t be out in the garden, or whenever you like the most to read.

 

IN the meantime, to give you an idea, we’ve put the preface in the free chapters section of our site, so you can meet Lucan, his visions, and a little about his family.  Enjoy!

Remember when about two weeks ago I posted we were ready for spring?  So what happens?  See pictures above of our  yard just after the ice storm…

So finally, it melted, we started making maple syrup and I went on a walk with the pom dynasty and guess what we found? (The pom dynasty is what we call out 3 pomeranians)

Those are snowdrops and my mom used to say that real spring was three weeks from the snow drops coming.  Let’s hope she was right.

Something else has been happening here at the farm: we got our two devotionals done-the one is for children and the other adults, just in time for Lent or other times you might want a daily dose of things to consider.  They are both available from Amazon and I’d love it if you could drop us a review about them.  And i do hope they help you in your daily walk with the One who loves us all.  God bless!

The last book of the triple trilogy Book Three of the Future Generations of the Oberllyn Family Chronicles, has officially been released!  



Available right now at J. Traveler Pelton on Amazon,  this book completes this part of the history of the overachieving, nerdy Oberllyn’s.  It’s been a wild ride through the nine books, and I do hope you have enjoyed them all.

And what happens in this book? Well, glad you asked.

Under attack, accused of being traitors, even their friends wonder if the family Oberllyn think tank can survive the corruption that is the Brotherhood.  When even the President succumbs to the mania taking over the earth, can the Oberllyn’s survive?  In the final book of the Oberllyn Family Chronicles triple trilogy, Traveler takes us on a tour of a world decimated by the evil of the Brotherhood; from viral warfare to gene warping mutations, kidnappings and murder, political takeovers and a mystical being known only as the Over Lord, they leave nothing in their wake but absolute destruction. The ecology of the earth has slid into a catastrophic downturn,  with water that is no longer wet and plant life going into shock, the oceans dying and lifeforms rewashing extinction levels.  Famine and total destruction seems inevitable and there has to be a scapegoat. When Noel discovers that they will shortly be under physical military attack from all the world military, Kai and Micah re-allocate protective domes for all the scattered family laboratories and research centers. Micah and Alex dream seriously of space travel  and colonization of new worlds.  The family worldwide must make a decision of whether or not trying one more time to turn it all around is a better use of their resources than just letting it all go  and finding a new home.  With the intense action and paradoxical decisions, Traveler leads us down a road  where we might go in a few years without careful change in how we all live and believe. 

 

Can Kai and Micah keep the family safe while the world dies around them?

In short, another exciting tale from the pen of Traveler.   It’s available right now on Amazon.  I’m putting a chapter in the sample chapters page on this site so you can see what it’s like.  In addition, look for an announcement next week about a free download of our devotionals…just in time for Lent.

Get ready, set and Spring!

As I write this, it’s snowing outside, but here at Potpourri Publishing. we are getting ready for our spring.  First, the ninth and final book of the Oberllyn series is due out next week.  That’s exciting and we will be offering a couple specials just for you on that.  Titled Kith and Kin, Together , with all the intense action and avneture that Traveler has become famous for, this book starts with the familyunder attack, accused of being traitors, even their friends wonder if the family Oberllyn think tank can survive the corruption that is the Brotherhood.  When even the President succumbs to the mania taking over the earth, can the Oberllyn’s survive?  In the final book of the Oberllyn Family Chronicles triple trilogy, Traveler takes us on a tour of a world decimated by the evil of the Brotherhood; from viral warfare to gene warping mutations, kidnappings and murder, political takeovers and a mystical being known only as the Over Lord, they leave nothing in their wake but absolute destruction. The ecology of the earth has slid into a catastrophic downturn,  with water that is no longer wet and plant life going into shock, the oceans dying and lifeforms rewashing extinction levels.  Famine and total destruction seems inevitable and there has to be a scapegoat. When Noel discovers that they will shortly be under physical military attack from all the world military, Kai and Micah re-allocate protective domes for all the scattered family laboratories and research centers. Micah and Alex dream seriously of space travel  and colonization of new worlds.  The family worldwide must make a decision of whether or not trying one more time to turn it all around is a better use of their resources than just letting it all go  and finding a new home.  With the intense action and paradoxical decisions, Traveler leads us down a road  where we might go in a few years without careful change in how we all live and believe. 

Second, we nearly have our two Lent devotionals completed.  We will be offering them as free downloads to our fan family starting March 3-so you will have them downloaded to use for you and yours.

The first devotional is for you as parents or caregivers to read to your kids: its a whole series of stories about our family and farm and I do hope you will all enjoy it and that it helps you to explain to the little ones more about God’s love. Titled Lenten Stories for God’s Little Children,  these little tales will help you in your finding just the right thing to read to your children each day, morning or evening, to help them find their path to faith.  Light-hearted in tone, but serious in meaning, these stories will be a favorite not just at Lent, but for family worship time.  The stories are gathered from the life experiences of a mother, grandmother and Christian author, and Traveler dearly hopes these bring you and your children closer to each other and to the Good Lord who created us with a thought, who redeemed us with his life and death and who waits in heaven for us, building us a home in His Holy City so we may never be parted again.  May God bless you as you raise your children, his gifts to you,  for Him..

The download will be free until March 10. After that, you will be able to get it on Amazon at it’s regular price in either an ebook or paperback.

The other book, title Natural Morning, is one meditational story for each day of lent.   They are written with a prayer and hope that each one of you finds a blessing in considering God, His gift, and His great love for us all.  I hope you enjoy it.  Watch for an announcement and a sign up button to receive your free copy.  You may chose either the adult or child book for download.

 

Polar Express is Real…..

OK, so I love all the seasons, but for real, it’s cold out there! It got to 7 below last night and the warmest it’s gotten today here in middle of Ohio is 0; that’s right, our high was zero, not counting the windchill which was -25. So this is a day to stay inside, work on book nine and start the freebie book I will be gifting to my fans/friends starting mid march-it’s a a new lenten devotional. I think I will offer two, your choice, one for you to read to kids, one for adults.  I like to gift my fans with something really special and since Lent is a special time, that’s one of the times I do it. But for now, we are going to order the new cover for the last book of the triple trilogy. Once it’s out-and you will be the first to know-I’m going to offer a special on all nine of them.

In the meantime, it’s cold, it’s lovely out and it’s warm inside, so grab hot cocoa, read the new chapter-this time from  Rebooting the Oberllyn’s; read

 

 

 

 the humor page that’s been updated and think warm thoughts of spring, which is only 48 days away as I write this-blessings everyone.

And when you go to my FB page, don’t forget to like and share.

And drop me a note-love hearing from folks when I’m getting cabin fever. Maybe after the next couple chapters I’ll go put on some soup for supper.

 

Rain? Really?

Uncategorized No Comments »

So for two days, it’s been freezing cold: we didn’t get the blizzard predicted, but we did get 6 inches of snow. It was cold-below zero at night and single digits days, in other words, normal for this time of year winter weather. So last night, it warmed up during the night to 33′ and it’s raining-right now as I write it is 44′ and pouring all over the snow-which is making it melt and now we have flood warnings. And guess what? Tomorrow night is supposed to be in single digits again, so all this stuff is going to freeze. And then it’s going to snow. So I suspect we’ll have winter weather warnings all over again. Now really, we had snow back in November for a couple weeks, and it went away in time to give us a brown Christmas. Then we had fall weather all through November., all the way up to the sixties some days. And now winter has decided to come. Ah well, excellent reason to go get a blanket, curl up in a corner and read for awhile.  

I have completed the rough draft of book nine-and hope to have it out by first part of February-watch for the announcement on that shortly!  L.Spencer is coming out with her book in a short while as well-this one on cooking on a budget-and she means a tight budget so if you are interested in eating better, doing it less expensively and liking what you eat, you need her latest.

I will h ave a freebie out in time for Lent-a special gift for my fans-so watch for announcement on how you get your copy around March.

God bless from all of us here at Potpourri Publishing! Don’t forget to go to my FB page and checkout Traveler Pelton.
