Bee Gone: A Political Parable is a rhyming, illustrated short e-book that examines the thought, (articulated by Barack Obama), “Elections have consequences.” Given its timing, perhaps it will encourage those who did not vote in 2016 to go to the polls and vote in 2020.
In a very short story about a disgruntled drone in a bee hive who wants to take over the hive from the queen bee, the key take-away can be described (in the words of the book) this way: “So, the hive lost its honey, its Queen, and its money. It was really a mess, and that isn’t funny.”
The outstanding illustrations by illustrator Gary McCluskey are spot-on. They are both amusing and illustrative of today’s political situation. (Gary says, “It’s the most fun I ever had at work.”)
No matter what your political affiliation, no matter how divided in our individual beliefs, we all agree that citizens in a democracy must exercise their right to vote in order to insure that our democracy continues to function properly. Elections must be fair. Citizens must participate. Elections must be supervised to assure that they are not influenced illegally by outside forces.
If you’re a Democratic or Independent voter, you will probably chuckle all the way through this book.
If you’re a die-hard Trump supporter, maybe not so much.
Whatever your political leanings, enjoy the excellent illustrations and let’s try to remember that, so far, in this country, we all are allowed to express our opinion(s) under the First Amendment to the Constitution. Let’s hope we never lose that.
Lighten up and enjoy Bee Gone: A Political Parable! Order your copy today or check out Amazon’s Look Inside feature to read the first few pages.
Remember: elections have consequences. This year's election may be the most important in our lifetimes. Exercise your right to vote in our democracy. If you are planning on voting absentee, start now to get your absentee ballot. We need every voter to show up at the polls and to vote responsibly.
The Christmas Cats Care for the Bear is the story of a small bear named Fred who is treated badly by the other bears because he has funny hair and is pudgy. The Christmas Cats, true to their tradition of helping animals in distress, find a way to bring Fred out of his funk and back into society.
We should all be kinder to one another. Saying kind things and not mean things is a much better way to live than making fun of others because they are different.
Now, more than ever, this is a great lesson to teach children between the ages of 3 and 10.
Be sure to check out "The Christmas Cats Care for the Bear," available soon in paperback, hardcover and e-book formats. (www.TheXmasCats.com).
The second volume picks up at the respective conventions in Denver, Colorado (DNC) and St. Paul, Minnesota (RNC), as well as reporting on such events as the Ron Paul Rally for the Republic and the Belmont Town Hall Meeting and ends with the Inauguration of the 44th President of the United States. The books contain approximately 100 pictures taken during the pivotal election of 2008.
The election of Barack Hussein Obama in 2008 was politically startling. It captured the imagination of a nation in a way that no other political event ever did. Or ever will… As his double term as President of the United States comes to an end, there is no better time to reacquaint oneself with Obama’s campaign trail, one of the most unbelievable sojourns in American history. – Bonnie McGrath, Chicago lawyer, award-winning journalist and blogger Connie Wilson has once again risen to the top. Her extensive background and experience in getting the least known details of the story are absolutely amazing. She is thorough and keeps you entertained and informed. She has an unmistakable wit that gives you tremendous insight on any subject she writes about. I have been reading Connie’s work for many years now. As a fellow writer at Yahoo, we have supported each other and enjoyed writing and conversing through elections, tragedies, entertainment and world affairs. Her desire to be the best shows in everything she writes. I loved this and can’t wait for the next great project. – Rose Richmond
Each story highlights its particular Circle in a novel way, but is partially based on fact, as explained by the author at the end.
I really enjoyed this book - it was suitably horrific for me. Each story is well-crafted and believable, and I found myself very satisfied with each story's pacing.
I give Hellfire and Damnation an “A” and I look forward to reading more books by Connie Corcoran Wilson in the very near future!
Mareena McGirr, Reviewer
One of the best trilogy sets I have ever read.
It's not necessary to have read Dante's Inferno to follow these stories - but it makes them even more enthralling when you have.
Definitely a good read - and the fact that the book has numerous stories, great for a few minutes of spare time!
