New Children's Book Coming Soon!!!!!


     How exciting! A new children's book, The Turkeys are Coming, will be coming out soon. This is one cute book you won't want to miss out on. You will be able to pre-order the book soon. Just send a message if you would like an autographed copy of the book for your child(ren). 
     I have had a wonderful time creating this book. I've learned a lot with illustrations (NO, they are suppose to look like this. I want my illustrations to look as though a child created them to keep the attention of the little one reading the book) and using this new template for publishing. It has been an interesting experience. I sure hope you all enjoy reading the book as much as I have enjoyed writing the book.
    Here is the blurb for the book:  It’s turkey hunting season and the turkeys have had enough. Wilbur, the alpha male, blames the workers of the hunting lodge for the hunting of his fellow turkeys. He gathers together a band of turkeys to enact his revenge against the lodge. Will they succeed in their mission against the hunting lodge? What will the workers do?
     Stay tuned for more news.....

One and Done



Hello, Pam Funke coming to you from Fox Southwest live in Red River County in far Northeast Texas. Folks, I’m almost to Oklahoma and less than an hour from Arkansas—way out in the country, and I must say it’s beautiful and quiet and peaceful. I’m in Annona, Texas the only place in all of Red River Co that sells and beer, wine, and spirits.

Right now I’m with the owner of Bear’s Liquor Store, a longtime resident and Samantha Danielle’s uncle.

Honorary only. We’re actually fifth or sixth cousins, don’t remember exactly, but me and her dad go way back. How about them Rangers? When G.H. and Sammi Dan came along, the team was struggling. His pitching and her reporting sure give us a shot in the arm. We’re liable to go all the way.

(clears throat) So you’ve known Miss Danielle her whole life. Could you tell us about her childhood?

Good kid. Nothing else to tell. Now G. H., different story. He was a phenom as a kid. It’s all over the net. One out away from throw a no hitter when he’s fourteen. Hurt his shoulder and lost the no-no, but finished the game. He’s a tough little booger. Reminds me now of Walter Johnson…not that I saw him pitch, but I seen clips of him. They did an overview on ESPN the other night. You see it? Looked like one and the same to me when they super imposed the two.

Customer: Hey, couldn’t help but overhearing. I know Sammi Dan real well. We almost got engaged.

Oh, you did? Uh, thank you, Bear. (turns to customer) May I ask your name, sir?

Sure! Rex Reynolds. Sami and I went steady through most of high school. Saw her the other day, I sure made a mistake dumping her for my ex, but you live and learn. Hey, is this going to be on TV? Hey, Sammi Dan, you get tired of that rookie, give ol’ Rex a call, and I’ll be there, girl.

Don’t you have cows to tend, Rex?

Hey, Bear, how about you tend to your business, and I’ll tend to mine.


Well, do it across the street, and don’t be coming back. I’m still mad about you telling them reporters where Danny lives.

Rex storms out. Report turns back to Bear. Care to tell me about Sammi Dan and Rex?

Not much to tell. She was crazy about the quarterback. He fell hard for another gal’s money and dumps my girl. Interloper was a Dallas transplant, Missy, but the Alsips didn’t last. Lot of folks don’t. Like I said not much else to tell.

What about Danny? Would that be Sammi Dan’s father?

Matter of fact, it would, but you had to hear what I just told the boy. Now do you want any wine, ma’am, or what? I’ve got inventory to get out.

(Back in Clarksville)

Hello again, viewers. I was thankful to find the Dairy Queen open in Clarksville, Texas, and I’m speaking now with owner Kim Mahlstedt. I’ve never seen a DQ so quaint, I love your interior.

Oh thanks, we’ve been working on it, trying to making it homey and comfortable for all our customers.


And I see you keep books on this wall. What’s that all about?

Well, I love books. My husband might call me a book-a-holic. I put some of the ones I’ve already read there, and customers bring their been-read books in to, then they take the ones they want to read. Most the time paperbacks, just a little service we offer.

That’s so nice! So, Kim, I was in town to ask about Samantha Danielle Davenport. Do you know her, and if you do, could you tell our listeners a little about her?

Well, we’re new to town, came about ten years ago, so I didn’t know her when she lived here and was growing up, but everyone knows our own personal weathergirl, even if we don’t get the Dallas channels.


Sammi Dan’s a sweetie, home-grown and the prettiest little thing. We’re all so excited that she’s interviewing Johnson, that new Ranger’s pitcher.

Yes, G.H….well, George Herman Walter Johnson. That’s a mouthful! Has he been in since he and your hometown girl have been an item?

Oh, yes. That sweet girl has a serious addiction to our banana splits—likes hers with two chocolates on the ends and strawberry in the middle, with extra nuts and whipped cream—I’m pretty sure she has one every time she’s in town. Call it the ‘Sammi Dan’ ! And her Dad and Corrie Cate came with them last time—the whole family. Excuse me, ma’am. (turning from reporter) Hey! Welcome to DQ! What can I get you?

Well, thank you for speaking with me, Kim.

You’re welcome, Pam. Thank you! (turns to customer) A Hungerbuster with cheese and mayo, no onions; and what to drink?

And there you have it folks! You can read more about Sammi Dan and her man in Caryl McAdoo’s brand new release (last week!) One and Done, book three in her Red River Romance series.

About the novel:

God can pull a fish out of water and make that thang smell like a rose. ONE AND DONE is an unlikely love story born of prophesy, nurtured in full view of the probing public eye, and seemingly doomed at its inception.

In this love story—sure to be enjoyed by men and women—with its Texas Ranger baseball backdrop and strong pitcher/batter hero, Samantha Danielle, cutest weather girl on Dallas TV, only dreams of sports reporting. Then her station sends her to scoop an interview with a pitcher Rangers’ management is hot after. George Herman Walter Johnson is undeniably a phenomenon on the mound, playing for a Mexican team. His charm and debonair bowls her over, but turns out, he’s such a goody two-shoes, she can’t even get him to first base.

Conflict flies as the wealthy ex-poker player, oldest Ranger rookie ever lays everything on the line in his quest to win her heart. She remains wary of his resistance. Will her bunt snag the man of her dreams...or his homerun drive her home?

ONE AND DONE is an unlikely love story born of prophesy, grown in full view of the probing public eye, and seemingly doomed because of the bride-to-be’s heathen condition. The pitcher follows Christ though, but can his faith that she is God’s woman for him carry them through to their happily ever after?

Reviews:

Faster than a major league outfielder pulling down a popup fly ball, Caryl McAdoo’s romance is guaranteed to snag baseball lovers and romance readers alike. This Christian story is written with wit, verve and Caryl McAdoo’s usual flare for dialect and spicy dialogue. Be warned. Those readers searching for a saccharine, man-meets-woman story will soon discover this is no sanitized romantic fairy tale.

From the beginning, the reader will identify with real people who live clearly in the mind, so much so, that a person can almost smell locker room sweat or the mouthwatering scent of spicy Mexican food. Identification with the hero and heroine is nearly immediate. With so much to rave about, this review cannot begin to cover all the delightful surprises, so the reader simply must buy “One and Done” to see for themselves.
--Cassandra Wessel, a Pennsylvania reader

Caryl has done it again. Another wonderful story with characters and a story line that had me hooked from the first pages. The author also gives a fun glimpse into the world of professional baseball and the players. It was enjoyable reading about G. H., a ball player, and Sammi, a TV reporter, and following their ups and downs in their spiritual journeys as they discover their love for each other. I was given a copy of this book in return for an honest review, and it is another one"" from this author that I definitely recommend."  --Ann Ellis, a Texas Reader

Caryl McAdoo currently writes three series: the historical Christian ‘Texas Romance’; a contemporary ‘Red River Romance’; and The Generations, her Biblical fiction. The novelist loves singing new songs the Lord gives her, and she paints. In 2008, she and her high school sweetheart-husband Ron moved from the DFW area—home for fifty-five years—to the woods of Red River County. Caryl counts four children and fourteen grandsugars life’s biggest blessings believing all good things come from God. Praying her story gives God glory, she hopes each one will also minister His love, mercy, and grace to its readers. Caryl and Ron live in Clarksville, the county seat, in the far northeast corner of the Lone Star State.

Guest Post: Plethora of Player blog tour: Meet Talia Ramin from The Great Thirst Serial Archaeological Mystery

Welcome, Ms. Talia Ramin. We’re here to talk about this mystery of The Great Thirst. But first, we’d like to hear a little about you.

I was born on the Caspian Sea, but I have US citizenship through my father. My parents died in an accident when I was ten and I went to live with my Uncle Naddy and Aunt Sophia. We traveled for their archaeological work and I also lived at different boarding schools until I came to the States for college.

With your globe-hopping lifestyle, what made you accept a teaching position at such a tiny school as Bradley Central?

I heard about this Bible as Literature program, and wanted a chance to teach kids the truth of the Scriptures. We needed a relatively small group of students to go with us on the trip to search for the Golden Testaments.

We’ve heard you may not have made the best impression on your co-teacher the first week of school.

Everything went wrong. I’m sure Keith thought I was a complete doofus. But once we got going on the class, I could tell we were going to be a great team. Besides, I could see he was the science expert we had been looking for to help in our work.

You and your aunt and uncle used the phrase “hiding in plain sight” several times. What do you mean by that?

I always use the example of Esther in the Scriptures. She didn’t choose to become queen of Persia. And her cousin Mordecai told her not to reveal her Jewish heritage. But she was put into a position of great power and influence just at the right time. I want to be used like Esther was, to help people who are persecuted for trying to protect and spread the Word.

You disappeared from town in the middle of a school week. Care to tell us what happened?

My aunt called me and said my uncle had been seriously hurt. For normal people, it wouldn’t have been that big of a deal to go see them. But they were on a Greek island thousands of miles away.
 Your travel plans took some strange twists and turns, didn’t they?

I certainly didn’t expect to get a police escort to the airport. And when Dr. Ewing showed up, I though I was going to have to defend myself. She can really be intimidating.

When you heard what had really happened to your uncle, what made you think you could do anything about it?

I was prepared to fight to protect my family and our work. I’ve been in training my whole life for this quest. But it did shock me to learn people thought we weren’t trustworthy.

Did it upset you to think Keith Bradley might not want to get involved as your science expert, or even go with you on the survey trip?

I understood his family needed him. God used his family to bless me, too. His father gave me my job at the school, I was able to help with his sister. His grandmother seemed to welcome me and my aunt and uncle, and understand our work.

Why can’t you reveal the archaeological finds you have made and what they mean to your work?

People have fought and died to prevent the destruction of the Word of God through the ages. First of all, we don’t understand how what we found will help with protecting and spreading the Word yet. Second, these are not our secrets to share. We have to protect those who have been doing this work before we started.

Well, then, maybe you can explain what this Great Thirst business is all about?

The Bible says there’s going to come a time when people will be searching everywhere for the Word of God, and not be able to find it.

So you are preparing for the end times? The Great Tribulation or something like that?

We’re preparing for persecution and people having to hide and protect the word to share it.

Hi Everyone

Hi all, this is Brianca Euley. I truly hope you are all enjoying my story. Yeah, I know it is kind of hard to enjoy the book as it talks about some pretty serious and hard things to talk about. Believe me, it was pretty hard for my author to write it and tell the story. So many people go through what I went through on a daily basis. We need to stop it some how. I know the authorities are doing everything they can, but it's not enough since it keeps occurring.

Parents we need to discuss the topics in my story with our daughters that way they know the evils out there in the world. If you know of any one who is currently in any of the situations discussed in my story, please (I'm begging you) don't ignore it. Do what you can to help the person get out of the situation! Thank you for listening to my rant.

Do check out my story (it is FREE by the way) and talk about it with your daughters. Let them read my story as well (15 and older please) and then talk about it with them. Ask them how they felt about various situations and what they would do if they ever find themselves in any of the situations. Then LISTEN to what they have to say.



A Valley Experience by Pam Funke


“One single decision can send you careening down a path where you don’t want to go.”

Meet Brianca Euley, a girl who goes through life searching for love. She searches in all the wrong places--in the clubs, with various men, everywhere except where true unconditional love waits for her. Will she ever learn that what is missing from her life is God? How far down this path of destruction will she go before she reaches out to God?

Guest Post: Plethora of Player blog tour: Shawn Lamb introduces Dagar





 We are continuing our visit to Allon, the site of Shawn Lamb’s new book “The Great Battle”. Today our guest is Dagar. We hope to get his reaction to Captain Kell’s assessment of his behavior during our first interview earlier this week. Check out the interview here.

Thank you for agreeing to this interview, Dagar. Being armed with a sword, I assume you are of the warrior caste. Is there a uniform for warriors or does each wear their own suit?

This suit is more to my taste, though Kell would argue otherwise in respect to our uniforms.

You sound a bit perturbed. Did the Trio meeting not go well?

Let’s just say I’m not happy with Kell’s tactics. If he had spoken to me first, I would have told him about this rogue.

Then you know the Guardian’s identity.

That’s not important! Kell thinks he can force the issue by public humiliation.

If you don’t know the identity then why are you resistant to the captain’s attempt to discover who is abusing the mortals?

Mortals! The fickle beings use Guardians to play magic tricks for their amusement. If Kell really wanted to discover the underlying problem, he would focus on them and not spy on fellow Guardians.

Spy? The captain mentioned he was trying to learn if the rogue is connected to other Guardians.

He can find a better way than sending his insufferable protégé.

Who might that be?

Avatar. He is Kell’s aide.

Ah, yes, the captain mentioned him last time. Kell also said he wants to help you change your attitude toward mortals. Perhaps that’s why he sent Avatar, to help you.

(Hearty, mocking laughter) Hardly why he sent Avatar. As for my attitude change, Kell should look to himself in respect to mortals – and other Guardians.

Do you consider Kell a friend? He spoke of you in those terms.

Kell … is Kell, serious and blindly dedicated duty. There might have been a friendship … before Radnor.

What is Radnor?

A battle, or more truthfully, a mortal rebellion ruthlessly put down by Kell and a company of elite warriors. It is a sight I will never forget.

So you were there?

Ay!

The captain was right about Guardian eyes! While his golden eyes shown with authority, your mahogany eyes hold great anger.

Disgust is more like it. They wanted self-rule and not dictated to like children. Can’t blame them. They have some intelligence, but mostly stubborn self-will.

Maybe you can help Kell and the others to sway the mortals to cooperate?

Not while his insufferable protégé is nosing around my business.

It sounds like you have a real problem with Avatar.

A problem I will remedy very shortly.

What would it take for you to change?

This interview is over!

Well, thank you for your time. Perhaps on Friday, Avatar will be more forth coming with answers.

"I am always somewhat nervous when I pick up a work classified as Christian Fiction. I find that many authors of the genre get very "preachy" throughout their novels. Pam Funke's books however are quite different. Though there's biblical scripture and lessons in the stories she doesn't preach at you (the reader). Every novel will have you glued to them until you've finished the book and have you thinking about the book." ~Pure

Author Meets The Wonderful Vivica Fox

    How did I get the pleasure of meeting Vivica Fox? Well, I walked into the local hair store to buy some hair conditioner stuff and saw the ad stating she was coming for a meet and greet. So on the off chance of it actually being true, I decided to take a chance and went to see her. I took a copy of my book with me. She was really very nice and took photos and gave autographs to the people that showed up. But because there were so many people you didn't really get to talk to her when you got your photo taken. So I asked the bodyguard if I waited to the end if it would be possible for me to give her the book. He told me to wait to the side and he'd take care of it. I actually thought he was going to say no. Anyway, at the end he had me follow them back into the store and asked for my book. He said, "Hey Vivica, I have a lady out here who would like to give you a gift." She waved him in and handed it to her. She looked at the cover and read the title before turning it over to the back cover. She looked up at me and asked me if I had written the book. I nodded. "Really?" she said. "Yes, ma'am," I replied. I then stated that I even autographed it for her. She smiled and I turned to leave. She then asked me if I wanted a photo or two of her with the book.
     Meeting actress Vivica Fox was truly a blessing. She is one of the most sweet ladies that I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Although she was only in Savannah for a short period of time and there were tons of people who showed up for her meet and greet, she took out the time to meet every single person who was there. She went out of her way to make people happy. She was truly amazing.
     I had the pleasure of taking some photos with her and talking with her a little bit. I liked how she was truly interested in what I had to say. Although she is one of the most famous actresses known, she is down to earth and more like one of us regular people. I think that I liked this most of all about her.
     It was a little strange autographing my book for her, but it was such a honor at the same time. She looked over my book and genuinely seemed interested in reading the book. I hope that she enjoys the book. I pray that God continues to bless her life abundantly for she truly deserves it.
    Hope you all enjoyed the photos and my little adventure.
