Genre: Pets/Essays
Format: Ebook

Dogs and people are a natural combination. A love born in childhood can change a life forever. My Walks with Bentley captures life lessons author D. C. Charles learned from her dog, Bentley, while on their walks. Bentley's reverence for a neighborhood tree causes Charles to reflect on nature. When they take up temporary residence on a peninsula, Bentley makes friends, though he turns out not to be much of a beach bum. And from the time they board a plane for their move to France, Bentley helps smooth the transition by making friends and enjoying the city of Paris-well, except for the sidewalks-before moving to their new home in the countryside. And he learns French long before the author does! My Walks with Bentley is a fun read. It reminds us to expand our perspectives. The world looks very different when one is closer to the ground, and we can learn from those more grounded.

On Tour: Aura of Magic by Patricia Rice

Inside the Book:

Title: Aura of Magic
Author: Patricia Rice
Publisher: Book View Cafe
Genre: Historical Romance
Format: Ebook/Paperback

  Brighid Darrow, Countess of Carstairs, has endured years of a loveless marriage in order to aid her friends and the people of Northridge. Yet once she is widowed, the village shuns her with accusations of witchcraft—vilifying her unique gift of reading auras. Released from past restraints, Bridey rebelliously embraces her dream of establishing a forbidden school for midwives.

Having spent his life being all that is proper in hopes of earning a title in return for services to the crown, Aaron Pascoe-Ives, illegitimate son of a marquess, is ordered to Northridge to save the royal mines from rioters. Any hope of aid from the beautiful but aloof countess is dashed when his incorrigible twins endanger their young lives by following him, mystifyingly insisting that the Countess of Carstairs is their new mother.

Bridey and Pascoe face ghosts, assassins, and riots—but nothing as perilous as the irresistible attraction between them. With hard-fought goals at risk, they must make the ultimate choice between achieving dreams—or losing each other.

On Tour: The Rise of Gideon by Stan Matthews'


Dog Eared Publicity is pleased to bring you Stan Matthews’ THE RISE OF GIDEON Book Tour!

Inside the Book:


Title: The Rise of Gideon
Author: Stan Matthews
Publisher: iUniverse
Genre: Historical Fiction
Format: Ebook
It is the early 1960s when journalism student Art James first meets Professor Gideon Pratt at a Midwestern university. When Art secures a reporter job after graduation, Gideon summons him, reveals that the university is harboring a Communist cell, and asks Art to write a story about it. Art, driven by his desire to earn accolades, writes the article. But when Gideon’s name is slashed from the story, Art angrily resigns.
Years later, Art lands a job with the New York Dispatch, with help from Gideon who is busy defending an educational foundation from attacks by a little known organization, the Cotterites. After Art reconnects with Gideon and his beautiful colleague/ love interest, Jo Davis, he discovers that feared anti-Communist Harry Cotter once wrote a thesis in praise of Communism—a fact that his former professor Silenus Stoddard eventually verifies. Many stories later that include an interview with Cotter himself, Art learns that Cotter is planning a rally in Madison Square Garden. While Art falls for Jo, an infuriated Gideon who blames Silenus for an embarrassing failure prepares to reveal his true self.
The Rise of Gideon shares the tale of a public relations guru and an ambitious New York reporter as they work together to expose a vicious society of extremists.
