Rhine River Cruising: A Viking Journey of Castles and Chocolate
After I started to book a Viking cruise, I found the decisions overwhelming. When to go? European rivers had level problems all summer during the drought. Where do we go? How do we get there? What do I pack? Which deck is better? It took a lot, but I figured it out with the help of a few Facebook groups. I kept so many notes that I put them in a free e-book on my website, but so many wanted a printed copy to take on the cruise. I agreed to publish this book to help others make the tough decisions that I did. This was the most significant travel expense I had ever spent; in the end, it was the best trip! We had many mishaps; missing luggage, a hurricane, and an airport closure – but we got through everything thanks to my careful planning and the wonderful people at Viking Cruises. I hope this book can help you along the way, no matter which cruise you pick. Order printed copy on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0BM3XTVF6

Catch me if you can! Although this guide is not written as an internal control guide – or a means to protect your dealership from future theft -- the objective is to help you use both financial and operational reporting to monitor your dealership or group of dealerships. After hearing about the controller that stole over 10 million, I wrote this book to help management run better reports, not only to make more profit but to make sure everyone knows "we are watching you!"

Princess Quest by Chandra Jerome based on a screenplay by Sandra Jerome
I wanted to learn how to write novels, so during the Covid lockdown, I had my yoga instructor granddaughter, Chandra, learn how to convert screenplays to novels. She converted my award-winning screenplay Princess Quest into a novel. My best friend, Laura and granddaughter, Tulaasi did the amazing color graphics. Click on the Look inside at Amazon to view them.
About Princess Quest; Kira, the fearless preteen princess of the mythical kingdom of Latavia, has trained her whole life to rule until her father remarried and a male heir was born. When the new prince is kidnapped, Kira becomes a suspect. Kira and her childhood friend, Henry, must lead a quest through the Forbidden Lands to save her kingdom, prove her loyalty, and discover her heart. They encounter twin trolls that want to eat them, a monstrous mountain that won’t let them pass and a poison snake bridge that threatens their lives. But these dangers are not what they must fear the most. An exciting tale for all ages!
Sandra Cook Jerome - Sandi Jerome is a retired magazine editor, writer, and PAL author of non-fiction for the technology and accounting industry. As a programmer, she developed a software product she sold in 2022 and decided to switch to creative fiction and travel non-fiction.
To make the transition to creative work, she completed the Advanced Screenwriter program at UCLA and has written a dozen screenplays; many of them have been finalists in various contests over the years. She is currently dusting these off, rewriting, requesting coverage, rewriting and submitting to contests in 2023. Fingers crossed!
During the Covid lockdown, Sandi's granddaughter converted one of Sandi’s screenplays; Princess Quest into a novel and then taught Sandi how to do that. Sandi then self-published for Chandra on Amazon. After attending the SCBWI Conference, her first novel, Sleep Warrior, has been requested by agents and editors. Sleep Warrior is a middle-grade fiction based on her actual Cherokee ancestors, and Sandi is an enrolled and blood member of the Cherokee Nation. She hopes to get the word out about the history of her people - but in a fun and smart way. Sandi likes to create Native American characters that are memorable, engaging and non-stereotypical. Most of her scripts have a Native American part - for many, the lead is a female, Indigenous person.
Sandi is also a certified Disney expert, and she wrote and published a non-fiction book, The Amazing Animals of Disney’s Animal Kingdom. As a Florida pass holder, she visits the parks weekly and was inspired to write her second novel, Murder at the Magic Kingdom.
Her current project is - Moon Sleep which is a Twilight-type teen fantasy romance. It is about the Dakota character from Sleep Warrior, moving back to the Cherokee reservation in Oklahoma. He is then attacked by a young female wolf cub - and falls in love. Sandi will be writing this both as a screenplay and as a Young Adult novel.
