73 year old grandma Mrs. Alice Perivale is on a mission to discover how the evil sorceress Baliste is moving between the magical world of Corevé, and London, England. Baliste is out to capture Alice and end her before the prophecy of Corevé becomes reality. Alice must find the answers she seeks in the enchanted city of Aviena. 

With her stab-tastic knitting needles in her bag and her cane in hand, this sassy old girl is ready for anything! Alice is joined by her six extraordinary cats, her skeptical-yet-devoted butler Henderson, and a fantastic array of mystical creatures. Together they share the adventure of a lifetime, with magic and fun the whole way!

This is the third book in the much loved international bestselling Mrs. Perivale series. Pre-order your personally dedicated and autographed copy now before it's released to the public this summer!

The book born of a meme:

The meme shown here went viral when @BroodingYAhero suggested that a grandmother would make a better heroine in a prophecy novel than a teenager.

@Dinuriel agreed, vowing to 'read the hell out of a series with a chosen eighty-five year old woman'... and upon seeing the meme, Dash Hoffman knew that the book had to be written, and so it was.

Mrs. Perivale, her seven cats, and her very prim and proper butler were born out of a viral meme, and have since endeavored to save the magical world of Corevé, fulfilling a prophesy and having a great adventure along the way. Stabtastic knitting needles included, as per the request.

With thanks to Brooding YA Hero and Dinuriel for the inspiration.

The Neverland Girl

By Dash Hoffman

Hardback with

handwritten dedication*

Find your way back to Neverland with sweet, young Emma, who doesn't even know that the place exists! 

Emma is a smart, determined nine year old who’s secluded from the world for health reasons. By a  twist of fate, she meets Callie, a woman who changes her whole life by teaching her to use her imagination when she introduces her to the charming tale of Peter Pan. Emma’s not about to let it go when her ‘feet-on-the-ground’ father says no to foolish fairytales!

 

With Callie’s help, and a bit of leftover pixie dust, the magic world of Peter Pan and Neverland comes to life for Emma. She discovers a way to get to the fantastic island and immediately delights in several thrilling escapades; a dangerous dive with mermaids, rescuing a fallen baby star, and teaming up with the Lost Boys to outwit the dastardly Captain Hook and his mad pack of pirates! Through her adventures there, she finds that she's a true warrior girl, and the real heroine of her own story.

 

You cannot miss this fairytale full of adventure, imagination, and dreams, with a dash of Peter Pan and a whole lot of Neverland. The Neverland Girl will touch your heart, make you laugh, make you cry, and make you fall in love with the strength and sweetness of one little girl who is determined to live her dreams to the fullest, regardless of what challenges life may give her.

A special note from Dash:

In 1929 J.M. Barrie, who wrote Peter Pan, gave the copyright and all royalties for the book and play to the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children in London, so that Peter Pan could always look after sick kids.

In 1988 Prime Minister Lord Callaghan petitioned Parliament to make the Peter Pan copyright perpetual; you see, all copyrights expire 75 years after the death of the creator. Parliament passed it, and Peter Pan became the copyright that wouldn't grow up, at least in the UK, and the hospital kept the benefits which contribute to a major part of their funding. 

In the states, the copyright for the book has expired. Royalties are not due the hospital (for books) that use Peter Pan and characters.

My story is about a little girl who's quite ill, and who lives in an "unnamed" children's hospital in London. In keeping true to Mr. Barrie, it's only good form that a portion of the royalties from every sale of The Neverland Girl will go to the Great Ormond Street Hospital in the UK, and to St. Jude's Children's Hospital in the states, so that Peter Pan will continue to take care of little ones who are very sick, as Mr. Barrie intended. Thank you for being a part of that!

Mrs. Alice Perivale is finished with her life. At 73 years old she is told that she is useless to the world and she begins to wonder if it’s true, until she meets the most unusual creature she has ever seen, and finds herself in a realm she never could have imagined, on a journey almost no one believes that she can undertake.

Against all odds, she accepts the prophesied challenge and she embarks on an adventure to save the strange place she is in. She must find her way through a bizarre and wild world to take back the Blue Fire Crystal; a powerful and vital gem stolen by a dark force no one has ever seen, hidden away in a palace no one has ever found.

She does not go alone. She is accompanied by her seven loyal cats; Tao the Siamese, Sophie the Pampered Princess, Montgomery the Old Gentleman, Bailey the Fat Calico, Jynx the Black, Oscar the Orange Kitten in Training, and Marlowe the Devoted Abyssinian whose place is always at Mrs. Perivale's side.

 

Her delicate Butler, Henderson, who has no desire whatsoever for adventure, swallows his fears and chases along after her, obliged to his duty to watch over her, making sure that her pills are taken on time, and tea is served as and when it should be.

It is because no one believes she can, that she takes on the challenge, and she must find out for herself whether her life is really over, or if the best of it may be yet to come.

Blue is an unusual girl living on her own in a strange world. It is a place of consistency and method; seamless and cold, and she thinks she knows her world until the day she feels something, or rather someone, pulling at her from far away.

Visions of a mysterious boy intrigue her, and she is unable to ignore the magnetic draw within her to him. Even though Blue doesn't know him, this remarkable girl sets out to find the boy, traveling through what she believes is the monotonous machine of a land she lives in, only to discover that it’s nothing at all like she ever imagined.

From giant white turtles and glowing bridges of light to colorful sand dunes and bottles of wishes, Blue's journey becomes a bizarre twist of terrifying danger and delightful fun. With the help of extraordinary and dear friends that she makes along the way, she discovers the highs of happiness and hope, and the lows of fear and sadness.

Her courage and determination are unbreakable however, and Blue refuses to give up on finding the unknown boy, no matter what it takes, how surreal the world around her becomes, or how impossible it may be to get to him. This adventure will leave you reeling.

Amias and his young friends enjoy simple lives in their village at the foot of the Kamado mountains, though there are circumstances for each of them that they wish they could change. One worries over a family member with ill health, another suffers a love unrequited, a third carries the weight of a life debt that cannot be repaid, among some of their troubles.

 

Opportunity  for hope arrives in the form of a traveling stranger who passes through the village and enchants them with a tale of the Wish Weaver who lives far up the mountain and weaves wishes into being. 

When his friends decide to go to the Wish Weaver to change their lives, Amias determines to go with them, though he is skeptical about anyone granting wishes freely to one and all. Along the journey the friends face tremendous hardships and when their quest takes a dark turn, Amias becomes the only one who might be able to save them all. If he is very clever and very lucky, his sole wish might come true.

This book is written in the style of an old Grimm's Bros fairytale and an Aesop fable. It is light and dark, and there are many lessons  of the heart to discover, woven deftly into the story. This tale takes a hard look at choosing what is right over what is easy, at moral value over material value, at self-love over infatuation, and at strong, true friendships. YA+

Audrey Bennet and Jude Harper have just lost their dear friend Daniel, but Danny shared an unbelievable secret with them before he passed away. He invented a time machine.
After finding it, they decide to leave it untouched and under coded lock and key in Harper’s basement, but fate brings about necessity. Just when they need him most, Danny is there to help them.

Audrey is working hard on a case that should not be happening; she's the unlucky police detective tasked with putting an old woman in jail at the insistence of a heartless tycoon.

When she hears Ruth Harrison's story, she knows she must do everything in her power to help the elderly Ruth win her freedom, her life, and get back a bit of her past so she can find peace in her future.

This is a tale of enduring love; love between friends, love between lovers, love between family, and the strength that it takes to bind them all together. Harper and Audrey discover that everything which happens in every life, no matter how small, can have a powerful effect; a butterfly effect, that ripples throughout the rest of time.
