THE TURTLE DANCES by Daniel S. Janik - Excerpt #1 (Family Rated)
"Chapter 1 - Peach Moon
Viewed from the middle of the bay, the night would have been pitch dark, but for the huge, round, blushing pink Hawaiian moon, resting like a big ripe peach just above the horizon. Above and behind, the sky, a black velvet blanket, was dusted with pin-point stars. Ahead, along the sandy beach, the evening trade winds rustled the long fronds of tall coconut trees growing on the far side of a sidewalk that wandered behind low mounds of cool, wet sand.
The beach was pretty much as Isla, the Green Sea Turtle, thought it should look, taste and feel from her childhood memories. Of course, it wasn’t exactly the same. There were small differences—the coarseness of the sand granules, their slightly cooler temperature, and something she couldn’t quite put her flipper on..."
Isla, a Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle resting on the beach at Waikiki, notices a dance couple practicing a partner routine for a dance competition. Intrigued, she decides she, too, wants to dance, and more so, partner dance. But how to do it?
Written for adults to read aloud to their children, and youth to 16 years of age to read and enjoy. Lavishly illustrated in black and white for reader coloring opportunities.

QUANTUM DEATH by A. G. Hayes with Raymond Gaynor - Excerpt #1 (This Excerpt is Family Rated):
Susan Koski eased out of bed without making a sound. Joseph Falk never moved, the top of his head showing from beneath the covers assured her he was fast asleep. Slowly she crept to the bedroom door, turned the knob...and the bedside phone rang.
Koski immediately recognized the voice of their boss, Tom Stewart, head of Cerberus, America's ultra-secret "off the board" information and action agency.
"[Both of ] you on the line,?" Stewart asked, continuing a moment later, "Good. Now...listen up."
There was a soft click and the tone on the line changed. Both Koski and Falk knew what was coming was top secret. "We have a problem."
Koski looked across the bed, raised her eyebrows and mouthed the words...Happy Birthday.
Koski and Falk come up against what very well may prove to be their most complex and dangerous case yet: The Quantum Death Machine. For the first time, Koski and Falk must separate during a mission. Each faces mortal peril, while, at the same time, their smoldering relationship begins to heat up. The fifth in the riveting Koski and Falk Series by multi-award-winning author A. G. Hayes with Raymond Gaynor, author of TOTAL MELTDOWN (Borgo/Wildside)

Dan, you mentioned the Japanese food called "Oshitashi." I'm Japanese and we also say "OHITASHI." That is its official name.I often think about my book, IN SEARCH OF SOMATIC THERAPY (Savant 2017), now that it's "out there." I would like to publish another version that addresses Ballroom and Latin Dancing, separate from somatic therapy. IN SEARCH OF SOMATIC THERAPY is mostly two-part, the first part being mainly about Ballroom and Latin Dancing and second part about massage and somatic therapy.
When I first began learning Ballroom and Latin Dancing, I wanted to become a dance therapist. Later, I studied and developed my massage abilities and got licensed as a medical massage therapist specializing in dancers. From there I finally reach somatic therapy.Setsuko TsuchiyaIN SEARCH OF SOMATIC THERAPY (Savant 2017)
