Welcome to my featured book of the week. This week, I am highlighting a book that I rebranded last month. I will be launching this book tomorrow, so I thought I’d share it with you, in preparation for my book launch celebration.

This week’s book is entitled Stories Outside the Box: An electric Eclectic Book

Written by Ann Harrison



a little book filled with magic, ferries, music, an angel or two, and even a bit of mystery.

Fly away on the wings of a simple drop of rain with Anna as she follows the music that fills her heart.

Have you ever had a breakdown in the middle of the road and wondered how you’d get home? Read about the miraculous end to what could have been a perilous journey for Bill and his family.

Mystery buffs and techno geeks will love An Unusual Glitch, a story about a county wide technology glitch that threatens to ruin the county’s computer infrastructure, if the problem isn’t resolved before it’s too late.  Enjoy a couple of new mysteries along the way.

You may be enchanted by a Christmas miracle that starts with a child’s prayer and a tinkling bell.

Ride in a sleigh carried on the wings of a snowflake, ride the wind on the wings of an autumn leaf or fly away on a swing!

There’s an adventure waiting for readers of all ages in each delightful little story.

Book Excerpt:

A Light at the Top of the Stairs


“Meet me at the warehouse on Fourth Street,” The note read. A frisson of fear, mixed with excitement ran up my spine as I read the note, I found on my bedside table this morning. I asked myself if I would be in danger, or would the love of my life meet me for a rendezvous?

When I arrived at the warehouse, I saw no one. The main floor had nothing to speak of. An eerie chill crept up my spine as my footsteps bounced off the bare walls and echoed back at me.

I stood at the foot of a tall spiral staircase at the end of a dark empty hallway. My uneasiness turned to fear as I took my first tentative steps. A light coming from somewhere high above me, drew me upward and onward. “Who’s there?” I called as I clamber up the winding staircase. My fear mounted with each step I took.

I turned and tried to reverse my steps, when an invisible hand brought me to a complete stop. “Don’t go away, I need you here.”

What a soothing voice! I turned and followed the light up to the top of the stairs. The disembodied pleading cry nearly broke my heart. Had the stranger been rejected before, or was this a day he’d been waiting for all his life? Then I saw him, a figure dressed in jeans, a white t-shirt and a cowboy hat.

“Who are you? Did I dream you into existence, or have my prayers been answered?” I awaited his answer as I stepped into a circular room, where the man of my dreams waited for me.

I saw the familiar face of the man I have always loved from a distance. “Well hello!” I stammered.

“Come with me. Let’s dance the night away.” He took me by the hand, and I stood on his toes, as we danced off into the sunset.
