Author Guest Post: Andrew Joyce

29913910My name is Andrew Joyce and I write books for a living. Johanna has been kind enough to allow me a little space on her blog to promote my new novel RESOLUTION: Huck Finn’s Greatest Adventure. I think it’s a good book, but what do I know? Anyway, I’m kinda shy about tooting my own horn. So I think I’ll turn things over to my dog Danny—Danny the Dog. He always has an attitude and usually does not speak highly of me. But please understand that we co-exist as the old Soviet Union and the United States once co-existed. We tolerate each other. So without further ado, here’s Danny.

Andrew took me away from some very important business of mine to help him out here. There was a duck outside the boat we live on and I had to bark at him. It’s my job.

Now on to the reason why I was so unceremoniously dragged here: For a person who works with words for a living, Andrew has very little to say in real life. He wants me to tout his book for him, but I don’t think I will. Instead, I think I’ll tell you a little about where we live.

I, of course, am Danny the Dog, purveyor of wit, wisdom, and words.

Time Sailors Of Pizzolungo by Scott Abrams, Adam Blockton

ebq5st

Get ready for an incredible adventure back in time!

Guillermo always dreamed of the day he would be old enough to sail with his father, a captain of the famed cargo ship Coraggio, on the open sea. But each year his father tells him the same thing – “You have the heart of a captain, but for now you are too small. Maybe next summer.

Somehow Guillermo keeps his dream alive, until one day the Coraggio sinks in a terrible accident. Without enough money to replace the ship, his father may have to give up sailing, and what’s worse, Guillermo may have to move away from his hometown and his best friends.

Just when it seems all hope is lost, Guillermo receives a mysterious package containing a beautiful model ship with a curious inscription- “Caution: Ship Grows in Water”. Unable to contain his curiosity, Guillermo brings the ship down to the sea. What happens next is beyond explanation, and Guillermo, along with his best friends (and genius little sister, Picola), are thrust into an adventure of a lifetime.

Review of North of Hope by Shannon Huffman Polson

From the publisher: After her parents are killed in a rare grizzly attack, the author is forced into a wilderness of grief. Turning to loves she learned from her father, Polson explores the perilous terrain of grief through music, the natural world, and her faith. Her travels take her from the suburbs of Seattle to the concert hall where she sings Mozart’s Requiem, and ultimately into the wilderness of Alaska’s remote Arctic and of her heart. 

This deeply moving narrative is shot through with the human search for meaning in the face of tragedy. Polson’s deep appreciation for the untamed and remote wilderness of the Alaskan Arctic moves her story effortlessly between adventure, natural history, and sacred pilgrimage, as much an internal journey as a literal one. Readers who appreciate music or adventure narratives and the natural world or who are looking for new ways to understand loss will find guidance, solace, and a companionable voice in this extraordinary debut.
