Have You Heard About... Death by Diamonds

…the great cozy mystery series set in a vintage boutique? Death by Diamonds* is the third in this series by Annette Blair. The Vintage Magic clothing boutique, owned by Madeira “Maddie” Cutler, is located in Mystic Fall, Connecticut, in what used to be a funeral parlor.

Have You Heard About... The Stuff of Legend

… the Boogeyman who steals children? The Stuff of Legend. Book 1: The Dark is a graphic novel about a group of toys who try to rescue their Boy after he is stolen by the Boogeyman. When the toys go into the Dark, they become larger and more lifelike – the stuffed bear becomes a full-sized bear (although he keeps the bow around his neck), the metal soldier looks like a human soldier and can use the items stored in his pack, and so on.

Have You Heard About... Megamind

… the mega-villain who’s trying to take over Metro City? Megamind is one of the best animated films I’ve seen in a long time. A reluctant super hero, a “mega-villain” and his pet fish, a cute girl reporter, and a nerd make the messages of “evil vs. good” and “yes, you can change and be someone special” into an extremely moving and very funny movie.

Have You Heard About... American Artist

… the magazine for artists and art lovers? Each issue of American Artist shows work from a variety of today’s artists. They give tips about the media and techniques used to create the realistic paintings. The artists also explain the inspiration behind their work. Enjoy taking a trip through an art gallery with the artists as your personal tour guides.
