Saturday's Blurbs featuring Books by S. L. Carlson #MFRWAuthor #BooksWeLoveLTD #fantasy #Unicorns
1)(MG Fantasy) War Unicorn: The Ring by S. L. Carlson
Aldric is content working in his family’s apple orchard—or as content as a fourteen-year-old-boy can be doing chores and dreaming up new magic—when he digs up an antique ring and releases a rude spell-bound unicorn. She claims she belongs to the king, but after her long imprisonment, she can’t tell Aldric which king that might be. Aldric promises to take her to the capital, and suddenly a simple three-day trip becomes an adventure.
War is building on his country’s borders, and even with the help of Aldric’s new friend Iggy, and Gwen, the general’s daughter, it’s going to take all the military sword training, courage, and magic Aldric has to find the unicorn’s rightful king. Promises will be made, the bonds of family and friendship will be tested, with a war which changes everything.
Can an apple farmer and one rude war unicorn save the country from the approaching enemy?

2) (My memoirs) The Road Less-Traveled Often Involves Smacking Face First Through Spider Webs (A Life of Animal Encounters) by Sandy Carlson
The Carlsons prefer being the outdoors, amidst the sights, sounds, smells, and feel of God’s wonderful and amazing creation.
Spending time outside, and sometimes within, lead to opportunities for encounters with animals, be it with bear in New York to mosquitoes (anywhere), with Moose in Ontario to racoons in California (also anywhere). Rats, bats, dogs, cats. Eagles, turkeys, red-tailed hawks. The Carlsons have experienced animal encounters on land, sea, and from the sky, from both the awe-inspiring to the terrifying.
Read about some of these real-life experiences, and then go out and discover your own.
Be wise. Stay safe.

3) (MG Time Travel) The Powder Horn of Mackinac Island by Sandy Carlson
Arianna’s family are proud new owners of a souvenir shop on Mackinac Island – the perfect place to make money for her paraplegic brother’s surgery. No motor vehicles are allowed on the island, but there are plenty of horses easily avoided, making the island safe enough for Luc to have mobile freedom in his wheelchair all summer long.
When Arianna and Luc accidentally discover that a powder horn that’s been in their family for generations can send them back to 1793, they meet their great-great-great-great-great-grandfather, the person who carved the treasure map on the powder horn. How can the siblings convince their ancestor to let them in on its secrets? After all, they are family.
To complicate matters, Luc finds he can walk there, back in the past. He doesn’t want to return to the present where the surgery is uncertain, and a wheelchair may be his life. Arianna must choose between discovering the family treasure and bringing and keeping her brother in the present.
