I am so proud and excited to announce that the picture book I’ve been gushing about for the past few months is finally available on Kindle! Launching this morning, Little Monster by Binky Bo Tyree is a fun, simple, and gorgeously illustrated picture book that people of all ages can enjoy.
The story, originally told in classic oral tradition by my then-2-yr-old to her baby dolls, is short, sweet, and to the point while the illustrations, gorgeously drawn out by the author’s multi-talented Gaga, tell the full story in a fun and bright manner.
Little Monster offers a sweet look at a day in the life of a Little Monster, allowing readers to see the inter-play between great illustrations and a silly, fun story line while still leaving plenty of room for the imagination. Currently only available in e-book format, the folks at Tyree Tomes are working diligently to fix a glitch and get the physical copy up and ready for order A.S.A.P. In the meantime, we hope that you enjoy the e-reader version. Don’t worry, Binky Bo is already hard at work writing up a new adventure for her Little Monster, though those baby dolls of hers are a tough audience to please!
Binky Bo is hard at work on a sequel already
In honor of my tiny Monkey’s day of birth celebration (She’s 3 today!!!!) I am doing my annual Share the Love give away. Today (Sunday, August 23, 2015) through Wednesday (August 26, 2015) ALL of my available e-books are either on deep rebate with the Kindle Countdown Deal (Dragon on My Neck is .99 cents until FRIDAY guys!) or FREE (that’s everything else…5/6 of my e-books. Free. Right Now.)
What does this mean for you? Well…it means you get good books at great prices. How can you beat FREE?
If you spend the buck to download Dragon on My Neck and download the other two Stone Dragon Saga books for free, that means you’ve just spent .33 cents per book instead of $4 per book. If you download all 6 books, The Stone Dragon Saga three AND the three Short Story Supposition compilations, that means you’ve just gotten 6 books for approximately .17 cents a book.
Yeah that’s right, I just did the math. BOOM. I feel very proud of myself right now…and yes that is just a little sad.
Still not quite sure if you want to go to all that effort just for a few free pages? Well answer these for me. Yes or No will do:
- Do you enjoy fantasy stories?
- Do you enjoy adventure?
- Do you enjoy a mystery?
- Are you fond of dragons and/or fairies?
- Do like a sassy lead?
- Do you enjoy a smart baddie?
- Are you busy but love to read?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, there is a story in one of my books that you will love. I don’t know which question you answered yes to and I’m even sassier than my amazing characters (they told me to call them that….) so I’ll leave it up to you to discover. But I promise you, there’s something in there for you. I know, because I wrote it just for you…
And to sweeten the deal for you, or just so I can walk down Nostalgia Lane, here are a few pictures from 3 years ago. Each of these pictures of a weird little bald headed gnome are from the first week of her life. Don’t worry, she finally grew some hair in over this past 6 months or so.
Big brother watching over the Monkey. He used to nudge the swing when it slowed down until I came to wind it back up. Now he just lays around and waits for her to feed him.
My short story compilation, Summer Sundays, is FREE for ebook download for the next 3 days. You can find it HERE. Tomorrow the other 2 short story compilation books will be free as well. You can find them Here and Here.
These books are full of stories that span genres, but they are all meant to be a quick, fun read for the audience. As such, my short stories are all short shorts, most only taking up a page or two in the book. I hope you find something (or many things) to enjoy!
Dr. Wilson Jay Tyree’s beautifully written picture book, Monsoon McKreel and the Rose is available for FREE Kindle download today and tomorrow.
Go learn from a cute parable about self esteem, and enjoy the illustrations from Mrs. Becky Tyree as you go! This book is suitable for people of all ages as you discover the importance of self esteem and of building each other up!

I’m doing a quick 2 day give away of Dragon on My Neck beginning tomorrow (Saturday July 11th) and ending Sunday(July 12th). What does this mean for you?
Well, it means that you can have your very own e-book copy of the novel that started it all! My baby, the first novel I finished edits on and chose to send out to the world, the book that started me out as an indie author AND as a YA series author. As if that wasn’t enough…I am offering a very special prize.
If you download my book and then POST A COMMENT on here stating that you did so, you will be placed in the running for a personalized autographed copy of one of my books (your choice!). If you already downloaded your copy in a previous give away or (gasp!) purchased it, please make that comment as well.
Here’s the twist…If you re-blog this post you get an (extra) entry into the drawing. If someone downloads and comments on here that they got the book because of your re-blog or post, you get an extra entry into the drawing.
Basically, the more you share and get the word out there, the more likely you are to win a physical copy of one of my books!
If we reach 50 different comments (different people commenting) I will up this giveaway to 2 books. Every 25 differentiating comments after that will add a book to the mix. That means if we reach 175 different people who then comment on here that they have downloaded Dragon on My Neck the drawing winner will receive a complete, physical, set of my published works: personalized and autographed to your specifications!
What are you waiting for??? Let’s get the word out so you can win some free books!!
All three of my Short Story Sundays books will be available for free download on the Kindle App from RIGHT NOW until Midnight Sunday (That’s 3 full days only folks!)
You can find the Short Story Sunday group, along with the rest of my available work, on my author’s page at:
This is a big flaw of mine, this ‘remembering’ thing. If I remember and you remind, I then get mad that you dared to think I wouldn’t remember in the first place. If i forget and you then remind me, I become incensed at the fact that I forgot and needed to be reminded at all. So now that I have admitted this to, my dear readers, here is a tiny obnoxious reminder from me to you:
Highland Park Presents, my fifth graders’ short story compilation book is FREE for kindle download until midnight tomorrow (4-24-15). We even have one 5 star review!
They are hovering somewhere between 30-40 downloads and I would LOVE to see them get closer to 100 before the week is over and done with.
Two of my books, Dragon on My Neck (Book 1 of the Stone Dragon Saga) and Summer Sundays, are also available free through midnight tomorrow.
Today I am going to post for you a very special book review…it is not for any book that I have received (yet), it is not for a friend of a friend who happens to be an author, and it is not for Tyree Tomes (though we did edit and publish it). This review is for my students. My 80 awesome fifth graders who worked hard, pushed through, and wrote.
That’s right, we are finished! As of today Highland Park Presents is available in both paperback and Kindle edition.
I wish I could tell you that this is the best compilation of short stories that you could ever possibly read. As their teacher I want to brag on my students and let you know that they worked SO HARD for this. If you could see the excitement on their faces today as I showed them the amazon.com pages for their book…well I have no words to explain it. I will, hopefully, remember those moments forever.
However, they are still fifth graders with a lot to learn about writing. Every student is on a different level and some of them are in a different world…but they have done their best and overcome a lot of self doubt to get this put together.
I hope that you will take a few minutes to click the link and see what their had work brought about. Any royalties received from the sale of these books will go to our school PTO for our grade level, so if you like what you see please go ahead and order a copy. We tried to keep the price as low as possible! Whether or not you get one, please share this with your friends. I want the kids to see that people in other counties, states, and countries have the chance to read their words.
The kids also want to send a special shout out and thanks to Dr. Wilson Jay Tyree, my father and Tyree Tomes partner, for his part in the final edits of the book. We couldn’t have done it without you Daddy!
May you all have a blessed and wonderful day!
