Wee People

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

What are Wee People? You have got to check this out!

In “Gerald and the Wee People”, Gerald and his best friend, Vernondiscover a mysterious spot in the woods where Gerald visualizes a miniature village complete with wee inhabitants. He enjoys going back to that spot and watching the day to day activities until trouble starts in the village and he tries to convince Vernonthat the “visions” are real and the wee people need help.
While trying to prove that the whole thing is just Gerald’s wild imagination, the boys literally fall into the new world and get caught up in a war. The boys come up with ways to keep the invading force from entering the village but another solution has to be found in order to put an end to the conflict.
Along with a few companions from the village, Gerald and Vernonembark on a quest to face down the deranged forest god who instigated the mayhem. The dangerous path is laid out by an ancient prophecy, but not everything goes as planned. http://viewbook.at/weepeople


The adventure continues in the second book in the Wee People series, “House on Bo-Kay Lane.”
Gerald and Vernon believe their time with the wee people came to an end after they returned to their home world but begin to wonder when strange things started to happen at an abandoned house in their neighborhood. Ghostly images of familiar faces from the wee people village are seen in the windows, echoes of voices from the past haunt the boys’ dreams and an undeniable curiosity draws Gerald and Vernonto investigate the mysterious haunted house. What they find takes them back to the world of the wee people and a new adventure begins.
In “House on Bo-Kay Lane”, a mirror is found in a forgotten room in the far-seers’ training center. Sheela, a far-seer master and Alyson, an apprentice firestarter are unwillingly drawn into the depths of the mirror and wind up in the abandoned house on Bo-Kay Lane. Sheela uses her telepathic skills to enlist the aid of Gerald, Vernonand Gerald’s father, Andrew to help find the way back to the world of the wee people.
That problem resolved, they try to unravel the secrets of the mirror and find that it is a portal between their two worlds, as well as to a time in the future and possibly even to a parallel universe. They also discover that someone is trapped inside the mirror and the decision has to be made as to whether or not to help the trapped soul escape the confines of the portal.

Meanwhile, the wee people discover the origins of their world. That knowledge is not well accepted and leads to discord between them and the outworlders, Gerald, Andrew and Vernon. An uneasy truce paves the way to an understanding and acceptance of the unwelcome facts and eventually to a solution of how to deal with the man in the mirror. http://viewbook.at/bokaylane
Author Bio
Greta Burroughs loves to read. No matter where she is, there is always a book close at hand. Her love of reading began at an early age and blossomed over time to include many different genres, her favorite now being fantasy.
As a preschool and elementary school teacher, Greta tried to instill the joy of reading in the children she worked with. Books were an important part of her classroom and story time was the highlight of the day.
It has been a while since Greta was in a classroom but she had lots of experience in reading to children of various ages and remembers what they enjoyed listening to. She tries to incorporate that knowledge into her work as an author and believes it makes her a better writer of children’s and young adult books.
She now resides in SC with her husband, Robert and three dogs. Greta has six books published at the present time; three children’s books in the Patchwork Dog and Calico Cat series, two MG/YA fantasy entitled Gerald and the Wee People and House on Bo-Kay Lane, and a nonfiction account of her experiences with an autoimmune blood disorder called ITP – Heartaches and Miracles.

The Soul Of Jesus

Today I would like to spotlight author Doug Simpson. Doug has five published books. His latest book The Soul of Jesus has just been released and you can find it at this link: 



After reading about The Soul of Jesus I was intrigued to know the author a bit better and asked Doug a few questions.
What is one of the most unusual things you have done in your life? I discovered proof of reincarnation. 
Why would someone like your book(s)? My books give readers something to contemplate.
What is the ideal recipe for a good book? Give the reader a reason to read ‘just one more chapter’.
Give a one sentence synopsis of your novel: The Soul of Jesus includes facts that most people have never come across before concerning Jesus and his life.
Who is your favorite character or person from your book(s)? Jesus. 
How old were you when you wrote your first book? 65
How long did it take you to write it? It was the forerunner of the manuscript that has now become The Soul of Jesus. It took about three years because of all of the research that was necessary.
When did you publish your first book? 2011
In your opinion, what is the one thing people can do to improve life on the planet? Be kind to others.


Thank you for being a quest on my blog Doug. It has been interesting to get to know you. Where can people go to learn more about you and your work?

About The Soul of Jesus
As part of His preparations for the long-prophesied birth of our Savior, God selected a devout group of primarily Jewish Essenes to oversee this monumental undertaking. The Soul of Jesus delves into numerous details surrounding these readily-available but little-known preparations which preceded the birth of Jesus, and then carries on to share delightful snippets concerning the birth and life of Jesus before the commencing of His Ministry, Jesus’ Healings and other Miracles, His Apostles, relatives, friends and the group of seventy disciples, the Crucifixion and Resurrection, His activities after the Resurrection, and Jesus’ Ascension, that are not recorded in the Scriptures.
