Finished with college, she should have been planning her wedding. After all, Ginny and Josh were made for each other--everyone said so. Except the love of her life didn't agree.

Now Ginny is back in her hometown, unwillingly single, and stuck in a dead-end job. When she discovers she's pregnant, Ginny is convinced her life is ending. Instead of planning a future with Josh, she's learning the truth about morning sickness, juggling bills, and seeing just how far designer jeans can stretch.

Her life-plan never included dating again (not even with her too-hot new boss), or being a single mother at 23. Now, with the help of her best friends, Annie and Jen, Ginny must try to re-imagine--and rebuild--a life she never wanted.

Sascha Martin's Rocket-Ship: A hilarious sci fi action and adventure book for kids (Catastrophes drawn from the diary of Sascha Martin: inventor, genius, and grade 2 science monitor. 1)

The audiobook of Sascha Martin's Rocket-Ship is free when you download this Kindle book!

Eight year old Sascha Martin is always inventing things, so he knows how they work. Mostly. For class news time he brings in a rocket that towers over everyone, including the teacher ... but he's written "Don't touch!" on the rocket, so what could possibly go wrong?

"The story is 'poetry in motion' for rocket ships! Manuela Pentangelo has visually interpreted John's verse with all the best icons from rocketry and science in the gorgeous illustrations." Samantha Ridgway, scientist, mother, and record-holding Australian rocketeer.

This children's picture book is ideal for kids age 8-10, but readers of all ages, from beginners to preteens to adults, will love this wild, funny, deliciously silly adventure wrapped in verse that rhymes and Manuela Pentangelo's beautiful full colour artwork. Inside, you'll find a link to the free audiobook, so if you lose your voice reading Sascha Martin's Rocket-Ship aloud, the audiobook can take over.

"Delightful, rhyming story that keeps your fingers turning the pages." E. C. Kraeft, author of White Castle (Book One in her Elf Kingdoms series of children's books).

"I am the mother to an energetic young reader that loves all things books. I am constantly looking for new titles that we can read together and I believe I have struck gold with this one! ... I was pleasantly surprised to discover the book rhymed throughout (we love rhymes!) and I must add that they are very well done! This book does a great job at turning an already fun story into one that you can practically sing together (which does wonders with a toddler!!)." Thomai Dion, author of the Think-a-Lot Tots early science readers.

Sascha Martin's Rocket-Ship is the first in a fun new series of children's science fiction action and adventure books, about a kid who knows just enough to be really, really dangerous!

Author Q&A

Why do you write stories in verse?

Well I'm compelled to write them. I don't decide to write stories in verse. It's something my mind does in the background. I'll suddenly realise there's this rhyming couplet in my mind and that it's been there for a while, and it's the start of a story. Then I have to work out the rest of that story, all in verse, and that's just hard work. But it begins unconsciously. Mind you, I do love rhythm and rhyme and poetry. Kids do, too. There's a poetry-shaped hole in everyone, as an Australian poet once said, and I think that's right.

What draws you to science fiction?

I've always loved scifi. It's what I read as a kid, as a teen, what I read now. Along with mystery and suspense. Scifi sets kids free so their imagination is the only limit. Monsters, aliens, dinosaurs, time travel, travel to the stars, portals to other worlds; you can have all that. With science fiction, kids are free to go anywhere in the universe - in any 'verse, and it seem there might be lots of universes out there. As many universes as there are kids, at least. It's a bit like magic. Kids love magic, and there are lots of kids who love sci fi. It's cool. Sci fi is cool.

What's coming up in the Series?

Time Travel next, and lots of kids humor. Book 2 is Sascha Martin's Time Machine. Sascha invents a machine to take his class back in time, and of course there's a glitch. There'll be an interactive version for Kindle. It's a really exciting project, and the results are pretty funny. But it will only work on Kindle devices - Kindle readers or Fire tablets - because the software's restricted to Kindle hardware.Other books in the series have bizarre balls, zombies, aliens, dinosaurs, space-ships and portals, a bit of an apocalypse. So much action adventure. But one of the books is really embarrassing, super-embarrassing, so kids will cringe even as they're laughing. Illustrating books takes time, but there'll be plenty of free sneak previews along the way so kids can get a glimpse of what's to come.

What Reggie Did on the Weekend: Seriously! (The Reggie Books Book 1)

On the weekend I looked for a new book. I always read the description first because, you know, I won't read just any old thing. So I read the description for this book and thought it looked okay, so then I read the online sample and laughed so hard that a little bit of pee came out. Okay, a lot of pee came out. ALRIGHT! I PEED SO MUCH I HAD TO CHANGE MY PANTS! There, are you happy now? It's funny, okay? And it isn't all about vomit and farts either (okay, a lot of it is about vomit and farts, but what's wrong with that?)

*Every Monday at school, Reggie writes an essay that begins with "On the weekend..." WARNING: You might want to have a spare pair of undies handy while you read about Reggie's weekends.*
