Books and Such

An honorable man is mistaken for his disreputable father. Now he’s pushed into a political scheme to start a war that will spread across multiple kingdoms. James Cuttler’s fiancé is being held captive to ensure he goes through with the plan.

He soon decides his skills are at sea and procures a ship to wage war upon those who disrupted his simple life. He can’t do it alone, so he recruits a band of cutthroats to help him. But first, they need guns and munitions to outfit the ship properly. Deception and trickery will only get them so far. Eventually, they’re going to have to engage the enemy.

James’ goals aren’t necessarily the same as his crew. It’s a delicate balancing act to collect enough loot to keep his crew happy, while guiding them back to rescue the girl.

Voyage of the Lanternfish is filled with adventure, magic, and monsters…

Friday Book Share: A Street Cat Named Bob by James Bowen

Our cat was a little lost kitten with a torn ear. He’s grown into a sharp tomcat. Thanks for sharing the book Mae.

Story Empire

Hi, SEers! Mae here on my day to share a favorite book. This is always a tough one for me as there are so many great choices. Although my preferred reading genre is mystery/suspense/thriller, I often find gems elsewhere.

Such is the case with A Street Cat Named Bob by James Bowen. What makes this story so exceptional is that it’s true. James went from being a recovering drug addict and penniless busker to a bestselling international author—all because of his kindness toward a stray cat. His story has been made into a movie and he and Bob now do speaking engagements around the world. There is a Bob animated TV show, Bob books for kids, a Bob Twitter feed, website, and Instagram account. If you like Cinderella stories, you need to experience this tale of one man and his remarkable cat.

Here’s the blurb:
