People Of Dirt By C. C. Hogan

Cover of People of Dirt by C. C. Hogan. I loved this book too. People of Dirt is even better than Dragons of Dirt.

I laughed. I cried. I did NOT want the book to end.

You will cry reading this one. If you don’t like to cry when reading, then don’t even bother with this one, because it IS GONNA HAPPEN!

I got mad about that too. Wanted to go find Mr. Hogan and kick his butt up and down the street, and around the block.  I got over that. Mostly. I mean really, you can’t have a war and no one dies. It just doesn’t happen so if you gonna read about war, you best be prepared to mourn.

There is a lot of fighting in this book. There are bad people who just DO NOT want the world to be a better place. Plenty of them in this story. They mostly get whooped. Eventually. The story is in the getting there. Lots of interesting stuff in this one.

It is a really good read! Hard to say much about it without spoilers. So go get a copy and read it! There is an excerpt you can read here.

I’m hoping this isn’t really the end. I’m pretty sure there’s more story to be told. If he decides to tell it, I’m gonna read it.

About the book:

Don, the capital of the beautiful country of Sarn is besieged by the armies of Lefton and Tol Nalan and the icy winds that are blowing down from the north.

Preland is in the grip of the worst winter anyone can remember in hundreds of years, and from beyond the Red Mountains, a wagon train arrives, sent by the king of Wone. The people of the north are freezing to death and running of out of food. They need help, help that only the dragons can provide. But it will take hundreds of them; Mistry must send to Angyn for help.

And beyond the storms, the vile True Path are allying with Categan. When the winter is over, they will head south intent on wiping out the dragons and building their new empire.

Not for the first time, Silvi finds herself at the front, being compared to her great father, General Johnson Farthing. But can this young woman lead an army? Can she defeat this terrible foe?

People of Dirt is the dramatic finale of Dirt, series two.

About the Author:

This bit is from the Dirt website-

C.C.  Hogan is addicted to writing and loves telling stories whether that is a fantasy like Dirt, about young people in The Stink or in music and poetry.

He is a Londoner by birth and writes full time.

Find out loads more at his Blog.

This bit is from Goodreads-

One way or another I have spent far too many years playing with words; by too many I mean I am completely addicted now and can’t do anything else.

I have been in the media most of that time, cooked quite a lot of the time and played guitar some of the rest of the time.

I am medium height, not pretty and talk far too much. You will only want me round to dinner if I agree to cook it for you.

I love lovers.

Madam President: The Secret Presidency of Edith Wilson by William Hazelgrove

Madam PresidentIf you like history or if you are into equal rights for women, then you will probably want to check this book out. Sounds like a good read, as well as good evidence that women can do as well as men.
Madam President: The Secret Presidency of Edith Wilson by William Hazelgrove

After President Woodrow Wilson suffered a paralyzing stroke in the fall of 1919, his wife, First Lady Edith Wilson, began to handle the day-to-day responsibilities of the Executive Office. Mrs. Wilson had had little formal education and had only been married to President Wilson for four years; yet, in the tenuous peace following the end of World War I, Mrs. Wilson dedicated herself to managing the office of the President, reading all correspondence intended for her bedridden husband. Though her Oval Office authority was acknowledged in Washington, D.C. circles at the time–one senator called her “the Presidentress who had fulfilled the dream of suffragettes by changing her title from First Lady to Acting First Man”–her legacy as “First Woman President” is now largely forgotten.

William Hazelgrove’s Madam President is a vivid, engaging portrait of the woman who became the acting President of the United States in 1919, months before women officially won the right to vote.

amazonbarnes and noble

Praise

William Hazelgrove’s riveting style lets us into the backrooms of the White House to see how a woman who had only two years formal education was able to pull it off and do it for two years! A great read and ride!
~Robin Hutton New York Times Bestselling Author of Sgt Reckless

Excerpt – Chapter One

The Cover-Up

President Woodrow Wilson lay with his mouth drooping, unconscious, having suffered a thrombosis on October 2, 1919, that left him paralyzed on his left side and barely able to speak. The doctors believed the president’s best chance for survival was in the only known remedy for a stroke at the time: a rest cure consisting of total isolation from the world.

His wife of four years, Edith Bolling Wilson, asked how a country could function with no chief executive. Dr. Dercum, the attending physician, leaned over and gave Edith her charge: “Madam, it is a grave situation, but I think you can solve it. Have everything come to you; weigh the importance of each matter: and see if it is possible by consultation with the respective heads of the Departments to solve them without the guidance of your husband.”

From there, Edith Wilson would act as the president’s proxy and run the White House and, by extension, the country, by controlling access to the president, signing documents, pushing bills through Congress, issuing vetoes, isolating advisors, crafting State of the Union addresses, disposing of or censoring correspondence, and filling positions. She would analyze every problem and decide which ones to bring to the president’s attention and which to solve on her own through her own devices. All the while she had to keep the fact that the country was no longer being run by President Woodrow Wilson a guarded secret.
