Health 2 Humanity (H2H) Soaps: Make a Tremendous Difference in Third-World Countries


The gift-giving season is coming up, and now’s the time to seriously consider the impact we can make in the world when we give a gift that “gives back.” What if you could give a special gift to a loved one, and that gift would also benefit people in a third-world country? That would be amazing! Fortunately, Health 2 Humanity (H2H) makes that goal entirely possible with their all-natural soaps. Watch the video below to learn more:



As you learned from the video, all proceeds from the sale of H2H soaps go to help develop soap businesses in third world countries, providing local communities with hygiene solutions, and cutting illness rates by over 25% in sponsored areas.

Another amazing benefit of H2H soaps is that they are made with only about 8 ingredients, all of which you can pronounce: extra virgin olive oil, palm kernel oil, coconut oil, soybean oil, castor oil, shea butter, water, and African Ribbon Lily. All soaps are 100% natural, vegan, non-GMO, and come in four varieties: Peppermint, Lemon, Lavender, and Unscented. Each bar is only $5.99 each.

I received Lemon and Peppermint H2H soaps for review, and they smell absolutely incredible! I use them for washing, of course, but I also want to place them in my drawer to make my clothing smell just as great! And, of course, since it’s the gift-giving season, I know these soaps will make perfect stocking stuffers and thoughtful presents. Make sure your recipients know that they’ll not only get incredibly clean and smell great when they use H2H soaps, but they’ll be giving a hand up to people in third-world countries. Isn’t that what the holidays are all about?

Perfect for the Reluctant Reader: "Capturing Cresselia: Unofficial Stories for Pokémon Collectors #2," by Alex Polan

Do you have a reluctant reader? I do! In fact, I have two. My twin boys would rather eat bugs than read a book, so it's important for me to find reading material that will interest them. Right now, they're really into Pokémon. One of them is playing the popular Pokémon GO game where he captures Pokémon on his phone all over town. My other son has been collecting the Pokémon cards and trading them with his friends. So, they were pleased to hear that they can also enjoy Pokémon through books. Here's a great one to get your Pokémon fan to pick up a book...

Capturing Cresselia: Unofficial Stories for Pokémon Collectors #2
by Alex Polan
Welcome to Camp Pikachu, where kids can act out adventures from their favorite Pokémon games and cartoons, battling other teams to earn points and badges, and maybe make it into the Summer Camp Hall of Fame! Marco, Nisha, Logan, and Maddy can't wait to embark on their latest adventure: Pokémon Orienteering!

This book begins with Marco's letter to his parents from Camp Pikachu explaining that he gets to ride a zip line! This caught my boys' attention immediately because they've been zip lining twice now and thought it was a blast, so they could definitely relate to Marco's fear and enthusiasm about the sport. My kids have had a great time at Scout camp, but they were able to imagine how even greater camp would be if it involved Pokémon catching! At 110 pages with kid-friendly language and lots of action, Capturing Cresselia is the ideal book for reluctant readers (ages 8-12) and, of course, fans of Pokémon!

About the author:
Alex Polan began collecting Pokémon cards in 1998. He lives just north of San Francisco in a house overlooking the Pacific Ocean, where he sometimes imagines he sees the legendary Pokémon Kyogre. Alex has a wife, two sons, and a cat that is every bit as gruff and grouchy as Meowth.

TROLLS Arrives in Theaters on November 4! Celebrate with a Giveaway for a $25 Visa Gift Card and General Mills Products!

TROLLS – In Theaters November 4

From the creators of Shrek comes DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls, a smart, funny and irreverent comedy about the search for happiness, and just how far some will go to get it. This hilarious film transports audiences to a colorful, wondrous world populated by the overly optimistic Trolls, who have a constant dance in their step and a song on their lips, and the comically pessimistic Bergens, who are only happy when they have trolls in their stomachs.

After the Bergens invade Troll Village, Poppy (Kendrick), the happiest Troll ever born, and the overly cautious, curmudgeonly Branch (Timberlake) set off on a journey to rescue her friends. Together, this mismatched duo embarks on a rescue mission full of adventure and mishaps -- trying to tolerate each other long enough to get the job done.

Utilizing music to further the film's narrative, the Trolls soundtrack is produced by Justin Timberlake and features five original songs, including songs by Justin Timberlake, Ariana Grande, Anna Kendrick and Gwen Stefani, in addition to a number of classic hits from the ‘60s through the ‘80s.

Starring: Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Russell Brand, Zooey Deschanel, Jeffrey Tambor, Christine Baranski, James Corden, Kunal Nayyar, Ron Funches, Icona Pop, Quvenzhané Wallis, with John Cleese and Gwen Stefani
Directed By: Mike Mitchell; Co-Director: Walt Dohrn
Produced By: Gina Shay

A New Christmas Classic! "The Book of Kringle: Legend of the North Pole" (Guest Post and Review)


In a magical land on top of the world, an epic struggle between light and darkness was waged between two brothers. King Kringle ruled with a harsh hand over the Elves of the North Pole, allowing no laughter, no play and no Christmas celebration. There was only one truly kindhearted soul who could make a difference and change the course of the world. Would the Elves be able to find Santa and bring laughter and joy to the land? Manusol the Elf knows the answer, for it is written in The Book of Kringle.

With stunningly crafted illustrations, a classically designed hardback cover and lyrical text that takes children straight into the glittering crystal mountains of the North Pole, The Book of Kringle is a must-have for young children everywhere this holiday season. Now parents and children alike can become even further immersed in the magic, thanks to an accompanying Color-In Christmas coloring book.

My Thoughts:
The North Pole wasn't always a wonderful place. It was once ruled by a cruel king, who happened to be Kris Kringle's brother! He made the elves work in the mines to add to his riches, and joy and happiness were banned. This story shows that goodness will always triumph over evil, especially when everyone works together and utilizes their own special gifts. Told from the perspective of an elf, the story is lyrical and magical, a worthy addition to books about the origins of Christmas and the joy of giving to others.

Guest Post: "On Writer's Block," by Derek Velez Partridge

Writing this piece almost gave it to me. Writer's block is sort of like saying "Beetlejuice"; you never want to say it three times.

I’ve said it once already (title excluded), and I fear I may be angering the gods.

Seriously, it’s a phobia brought on by hysteria, but really, it happens when you’re not clear about what it is you’re trying to say. We all have a little vignette running around in our head and not everything is a full story.

We want to believe that behind these ideas is a treasure trove, an endless pit of inspiration.

What started as a rush slowly begins to unravel, and sometimes it becomes difficult to judge whether it's writer's block (2nd mention) or the idea itself simply has "limited legs." It’s a good thought, but not a full story.

I haven’t had W.B. (won’t say it again) in a while because it seems I've got a lot going on in my head right now.

This is the root of writing to me. It’s how I grasp sanity. It’s my personal therapy, the way I put my life in perspective. It’s how I deal with every choice or obstacle I’m confronted with. I give it a theme and make it part of the story.

I raise the stakes for myself. I call it "chasing genius" because, as a writer, I get to feel like what I’m working on is the MOST important thing in the world, so to avoid W.B. my work becomes my epitaph to my three daughters. I make it so that I can't have a net, almost life-and-death stakes. Work and family are truly the only things that drive me. So, as a father, I must prepare my three tween to teen girls for the future, which means I've got to fully understand life as I live through it.

The writing is all mine: my fears, my challenges. The reading part, I’ll leave that up to the rest of the world. You also have to decide to whom you’re talking to and what it is you're trying to convey. Writing is not for the masses, even though that is its full intention. Writing is for the writer and what it is he/she is trying to work out or understand. I make a joke to my friends: It’s not that I fear isolation, I fear a broken pencil…

I’ve learned long ago that it takes faith. Not everything will come immediately. You must be asking the right questions, so there’s no need to rush the process. Trust that if it’s a worthy story, it will come. You must remove yourself from that perception and stay true. Never try to be cool; don’t get stuck on flair, style, or other people’s opinions. All of these contribute to writer's block (3rd mention, oh NO!!!!!), so the best way to avoid this is to remain open, honest and humble.

Derek Velez Partridge was first inspired to pen The Book of Kringle: Legend of the North Pole at sixteen years old when he wrote a poem titled “Old Man Joe.” Partridge has been a professional artist for many years, getting his start as a clay potter while living with Pablo Indians in New Mexico. He has made two feature films and is currently in preproduction of a new film called The Devil That Is, story by Edwin Torres, the New York Supreme Court Judge known for Carlito’s Way. Partridge is the father of three daughters aged 11, 14 and 16, to whom he dedicates The Book of Kringle.

For more information, please visit the book's website, as well as the Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest and Goodreads pages.

The Book of Kringle: Legend of the North Pole is now available on the book's website, as well as Amazon and iBooks.

6th Grade Revengers Book Blast: Giveaway for a $50 Amazon Gift Card or PayPal Cash

6th Grade Revengers: Cat Crimes and Wannabes
by Steven Whibley

Jared and Marcus aren’t like other 11-year-olds … they’re also Revengers. They fix problems, and they’re awesome at it -- at least, they will be if they ever get a chance to show off their skills. What they need is exposure. Luckily, they have the perfect target in mind: Jared’s sister’s boyfriend. He’s a jerky, wannabe rock star, a relentless bully, and he smells like old gym socks.

Enough is enough. The tone-deaf jerk’s days are numbered. There’s only one hitch: Marcus already offered their services elsewhere. A stray cat with serious aggression issues apparently has a whole neighborhood boarding up their windows. What the boys think will be an easy-money job quickly turns into a dangerous game of wits. The cat’s a monster. It takes all the ingenuity the boys can muster to deal with this beast.

Two targets at once. It’s time to prove themselves as the awesome after-school problem-solvers they know they are. That is, if their plan doesn’t backfire. Because they’ll either be feared fixers or a couple of kids who can’t even take out a kitten.

Praise for the Book
“…funny, exciting and full of adventure.”~10-year-old reviewer

“…a delightful story, full of adventure, and I would highly recommend it…”~Amazon reviewer

“Cleverly entwined plots and vivid settings are designed to hold readers to the end…”~Goodreads reviewer

Excerpt

One of my favorite TV shows was about a spy who couldn’t be a real spy anymore so he went around helping people with their problems. In a way, that was exactly what I’d done for Sky. She had a problem, and I fixed it. I wasn’t sure what that would be called, but there had to be thousands of people with problems—problems like evil bosses, jerk teachers or pain-in-the-butt sisters—who needed someone to help them deal.

Someone like me.

I grabbed a notebook and pencil and started brainstorming all the ways I’d make it work. Eventually my brainstorm became a brain typhoon, or whatever it is when your imagination gets out of control. Brain tornado maybe. The ideas came faster than I could write them down. There was no limit to what I could do. Bullies would disappear from playgrounds. Mean babysitters would never sit again. The possibilities seemed endless.

Pretty soon it was after midnight and I had a notebook filled with ideas.

“Jared Moter: Avenger of the Little Guy,” I said to myself as I crawled into bed. No, avenger wouldn’t work. That was already a comic book and a movie. Revenge-inator? That sounded like a robot from a sci-fi movie. It had to be cool. Had to be catchy. “Problem Assassin?” I shook my head. I wasn’t really killing stuff and besides, assassins were cool in movies and video games but not in real life. I lay there staring up at the ceiling for a long time.

Just before I fell asleep, I found the right word.

Revenger.

Steven Whibley is a father, a husband, and the author of several middle-grade and young-adult novels. He has lived in Japan; volunteered in Thailand, Myanmar and Colombia; explored the ruins of Tikal, Angkor Wat, and Cappadocia; and swum with sharks in Belize. His novel, DISRUPTION, was a finalist in Amazon’s Breakthrough Novel Award, and GLIMPSE (an unrelated novel), was shortlisted for Foreword Review’s Book of the Year award.
