Free eBook (yes, another eBook ;b)

In my last blogpost I wrote of how I was cautious of eBooks.

When I downloaded those free Kendra Ardnek books I accidentally downloaded one other free short story.

I almost deleted it, but my mom was like, "It's free, it's a fairy tale. Check it out. If it isn't good then delete it."

Wow. That short story ended up being one of the best accidents ever.

I loved it so much that I decided "If there are more, I'm going to buy them, even if they are ebooks."

Thankfully they are available in both paperback and hardcover :) And I'm buying these VERY soon :) Also, while doing this blog post, I found out that the author was home schooled and has three kids :) that's pretty neat, I think :)

Maelyn by Anita Valle

Available to download for free

Anita Valle on facebook and her blog.

Series: Book 1 of the Nine Princesses
(Only three books are finished as of yet).


Rating: 5 stars. Appropriate for all ages. Once scene with kissing. No magic.


Genre: fairytale


My Review:

Years before when the land was full of plague and famine there lived a good king and queen that could have no children. So, the King rescued 9 girls, one from each providence.


Now orphaned again, the princesses are fighting to keep their place as heirs for the throne. Maelyn, the oldest has mysteriously dismissed all the servants and the sisters must take care of the castle themselves.


Their uncle has come for an unexpected and unpleasant visit. Maelyn knows that something awful is going to happen.


Between plotting to keep her rightful place and dodging her uncle, Maelyn must keep her sisters in order.


But it seems as if all are against them and her....that is except for the mysterious messenger Willow, who brings her new, fascinating novels that help her forget about her troubles.

Living Like The Amish: Interviews With Three "English" Families PART I

Many people are obsessed with the Amish.
I know at one time I was as well, and to a degree I still am.
But my perception  has changed with experience.

It started a long time ago when my family went to an Amish-held auction (no, it's not a place where you can buy Amish children, but a place where you can buy things from the Amish). I was eleven years old and enthralled to be surrounded by so many Amish. I loved the cockscomb flowers they sold everywhere. I bought a whole box for $2 and dried them for seeds so I could plant my own.
But then I experienced my first reality shock concerning the Amish.
I had assumed since they lived a simpler life everything about them was completely old-fashioned and natural.
Imagine my horror when I saw Amish walking around with soda cans and store-bought ice cream.

"Mom," I said. "He's drinking soda!" 


During my years living with the Amish I learned a lot about them. As individuals. As a culture. And about their history. Recently…

Inside The Land Of The Free

Hello.
My name is Greg. 
I have a lot of time to think. Too much time. Sometimes I think about my life - why I am sitting in prison. I wonder what I could have done different - my life plays before my eyes.
"If only..."
But even I know that no amount of good works would have stopped tyranny from finding fault with me.
It is cold.
My clothes are thin.
My stomach is empty - occasionally filled with food of no sustenance. 
I hide my face in my knees - as if that will somehow protect me from the horrors of this dark cold dungeon. 
They keep it cold to freeze me, this I know.
It is a part of their game - to drive a lesson into me.
As if I have a lesson to learn solely because I was convicted.
Convicted, but not  guilty.
Years. 
68 years for standing against injustice.
How many years have I sat in here?
I have forgot.
All I know is this question, "Was I fated for this? Did God grant my birth just so I could spend life as if dead?"
I cry out to God - does He hear me?
I do not know. I can no…

It Doesn't Take a Genius to Recognize Corruption

After attending the writer's conference I had the opportunity to spend a week with my dad in Las Vegas (we went to federal court trials).
I don't usually speak much of his work as I'm not sure all what to say about it. He keeps the public updated with what's happening in court, with all the many men locked up that he's trying to help out. I think he said there are like 19 guys right now that he is specifically trying to help release. 
{If any of you have heard of the Bundy Ranch Stand Off, you'll know a little of what he is doing}
I won't go into too much detail with his work. I will say if you want to know more of how to help out and learn what's going on just do some googling - my dad's name is John Lamb. You should be able to find plenty on him ;p
Anyways, I was quite shocked the first day.
Security didn't surprise me at all. Very much like an airport ;p  Except, most of the security was actually nicer ;) I was very pleased with security as far …

I'm Not Into Politics, But...

“Hey, did you hear what's happening with those guys in Oregon from Malheur Refuge?”
“No. Tell me about it!”
“A bunch of guys felt that their rights as US citizens were being violated, so they decided to take back a bit of land for the “people” as a sign to the federal government to back off, and now they are all facing years to life in prison for 'terrorism' and-” My words slow down as I see the person's face slowly becomes void of emotion. Bored? Or do they not like what I'm saying…? Have I just lost a friend? What did I say????




“Oh. Yeah.. I'm not really into politics.” They say.
“Oh, OK.” I say. But inside something feels wrong. Not into politics???
Hey, I hate politics. I despise them. So much stress, and fighting, and corruption. But… it's a part of life. Or is it???
What if I told you Fred's barn just burned down and we were going to go do some things to encourage him and help him out. Get some guys to rebuild it. Make him some meals. You, know, …
