Two great new books from 4RV now available

Let's first look at Just Breeze by Beverly Stowe McClure, cover and book design by Aidana WillowRaven.

Beverly and Breeze are holding a book launch party, which everyone can enjoy. Go to Just Breeze's website to discover all the guidelines.

A few words about the young adult/middle grade novel:

Eighth grade starts out the same as every other year for Breeze Brannigan. She’s still the tallest student, boy or girl, in her class, wears shoes that would fit an elephant, and her smile reveals dazzling braces that blind everyone within ten feet.

Then she meets Cam , the new boy in school who speaks with an accent and must be from another planet, for none of the earthling boys she knows are so polite. He also has a secret, a secret that could mean life or death for Cam and his mother and that Breeze must help him keep.

The second release in September is Second Chance by Galand Nuchols, cover and book also designed by Aidana WillowRaven.

The characters from Second Chance, another young adult novel, don't have their own blog or website yet, but we can know more about their story from the blurb on the back of the book:

Josh and Leroy are friends despite their differences. They face a world of depression, segregation, drought, and prohibition.

Josh, the main target of the town bully, uses the boy’s Achilles heel to even the score. Leroy hates the father he has never seen, but he must make life changing decisions when the man returns to be a part of Leroy's and his
mother’s lives.

They help a mutual friend, George, and his family walk a tightrope, as they deal with
their white neighbor, who is determined to get rid of them.

Together the three friends bring a small measure of justice to their challenging world, as they each experience a second chance.

Both books can be found through bookstores, as well as online stores, and from the publisher 4RV Publishing.

I guess I need to do some more publicizing of this post.

Thanks, Nancy and Rena (and of course Beverly) for stopping by.

I'll be reviewing Breeze. As I've enjoyed other books by Bev, I'm sure it will be a hit.


Vivian Zabel said...

That's good news, Cheryl.

Of course I'm a bit biased about Just Breeze.

Way to go, ladies. Congrats not only to the authors but to the illustrator as well. Great job on both covers.

4RV is very fortunate to have good authors and creative illustrators.

Didn't realize "Just Breeze" was a new release. Ya'll drop by my blog ( on Wednesday to see my interview with Beverly.

Vivian Zabel said...

Yes, Just Breeze came out maybe 10 days to 2 weeks before Second Chance. Both books had been in the process for over a year.
