M.C. Arvanitis- Kidtales Holiday Book Fair Author!


Today we meet M.C. Arvanitis. 
M.C. writes several varieties of books,
however we are featuring two of her Middle Grades
in the Kidtales Holiday Book Fair! 
Ms. Arvanitis is a graduate of the Institute of Children's Literature 
and a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers. 
Her occupation as a preK and early grades teacher gives 
her insight into the stories children like to read. 
Now retired, she writes mid grade readers books 
she calls "fables." She brings mythical creatures such
 as fairies, elves, mermaids, pixies, and other strange 
beings to her stories. She now offers her first two 'fables' 
for Mid graders. "THE LEGEND OF ELPANDA PAWS," 
and "FORBIDDEN WINGS, A MERMAID'S STORY" 
in both as e-books and in print books.
The first of Mrs Arvanitis's teen/YA historical
 series, HANK OF TWIN RIVERS, BOOK ONE, 
JOURNEY OF CHANGE; is now available as
 E-book and in print. This coming of age story
 takes place in 1855 and tells of a pioneer boy's
 conflict with his stern father on the Oregon Trail.
Two more of the Hank series will be added to her
 author's list in 2014:
HANK OF TWIN RIVERS, BOOK TWO; THE EAGLE'S NEST.
HANK OF TWIN RIVERS, BOOK THREE; RIDING WITH THE WRANGLERS.

Ms. Arvanitis is presently working on her third Fable,
 "PIXIES OF THE FERNS: FERNELLA'S MAGIC." to be out in 2014.
In the future she hopes to publish others of her picture
 books for the under six readers. These stories have
 been read and enjoyed by the thousands of students 
she has taught though out the years. First will be
 'CHICKEN IN THE OVEN', the saga of BFC who
 doesn't want to be Farmer's Dil's Sunday dinner.


For hundreds of years the Claus Corporation has contracted 
with the ELVanites to make Love Bears which are delivered to 
seriously ill children around the world. Only Elves with love
 and happiness in their hearts can make the bears properly 
-- insuring that each bear carries love and comfort for these children. 
Negative feelings are discouraged in ELVanland. 
Frowning, fussing, criticizing and crying are rarely seen or heard. 
The ELVanites know that these feelings bring on unhappiness and disease. 
From early childhood they are taught to push any sad feelings 
out of their thoughts by thinking happy thoughts instead.
ELVina, Head of Production, finds her elf workers suddenly 
afflicted with the negative disease, an illness that makes them slow and careless. 
They whine and break into tears at the least little happening.
"What is going on, ELVina?" Inspector ELMonte asks. 
"I have never seen so many unacceptable bears come from this factory. 
The work is sloppy and certainly will not meet Mr. Claus's standards."
ELVina blows her nose and hangs her head, unable to speak for a moment.
 She starts to cry. "I have been feeling depressed also.” 
"There, there, now." Inspector ELMonte places a comforting arm on her shoulder, 
"It will be all right. We'll work it out.”
But ELVina cannot be comforted. 
She knows that if the Love Bears are not made in time
 the Claus Corporation will not renew their contract for next year. 
No contract -- no work; no work -- no pay; the ELVanites will starve.
Worse yet, their reputation as bear makers will be ruined.
 Something is wrong in ELVanland. Something is terribly wrong!

Nadeea is shorter than the other Mermaids and finds life unbearable. 
She meets two fairies, Cassandra and Alex, 
and admires their beautiful wings. She wants wings 
for herself so she can escape from the teasing she 
receives from the other Mermaids. When Sir Cecil,
 the Snerg, promises to help her find wings she agrees 
to go on a long dangerous journey to Wyre, the home of 
the Damselflies. Sadie Squarette, a magic-making, 
bug-like poet, is their guide. They cross the Island of Egilssay 
where she meets Zasta, a Selkie, who becomes her best friend. 
There is danger in the island however. They must cross the
 land of the Trows where a mighty battle is going on between 
the Sea and Hill Trows. Trows not only kill each other, they 
kill anyone who crosses over their land. Sadie uses her unique
 magic to save them. Finally they reach the Island of Wyre 
where Nadeea hopes to get wings. She bravely faces Gwilon,
 the Goat Witch, and saves the queen of the Damselflies. 
When she learns that her Mer family has been captured by 
the dreaded Sea Lions and taken into slavery, she has to make a decision.
 Will she wait for her wings or leave with the Selkie Army to rescue her family?

The Legend of Ghost Dog Island
$3.99 ebook
Moving is nothing new for ten-year-old Nikki Landry. 
Her fisherman father relocates their raggedy old houseboat
 several times a year in search of better crabbing spots. 
However, their latest move has brought her to a 
mysterious bayou where she feels something is watching her from a nearby island. 

Nikki learns of a local legend about something sinister
 inhabiting those swamps, stealing the souls of dogs…
which would explain the strange howling sounds. 
Papa reassures her there’s nothing on the island 
but gators and snakes. He would know. 
He’s spent his whole life trapping and fishing those bayous and swamps.
 But Nikki and her new friends uncover strange happenings
 from years ago that may have started the old legend, 
and town folks aren’t talking. Then her beloved beagle goes missing.

Join Nikki as she seeks to discover the 
real truth behind the legend of Ghost Dog Island…
before it’s too late.
