Happy December to all you wonderful folks out there in the cosmos! It has definitely cooled down here as of late, and after the craziness of Thanksgiving and Black Friday coupled with Cyber Monday, I’m sure we are all due for a breather as we head down the road to Christmas itself! But before we start to break out the egg nog and ornaments, let’s see what indie books are there for the choosing!

Artist(s): Devon Massey
Cover Artist(s): Devon Massey, Budd Root, Lance Footer, Deacon Black
Publisher: Amryl Entertainment
Synopsis: “Professor Cook has given Meriem an important mission. She must locate and return a Pterodactyl egg for his research. This will not be an easy task as the eggs are almost always high up on a cliff faces throughout the jungle. While it sure seems like an easy task when she gets the egg, Momma rounds the corner and begs to differ and a sky-high adventure ensues. Meriem must protect the egg from winged creatures and also from the ground as others want an exotic meal.”
Meriem never seems to catch a break in many of her zany adventures. This time, Professor Cook thinks it necessary for her to retrieve a pterodactyl egg for the purposes of scientific research and while she is capable of obtaining said egg, it will be another thing for her to actually return it intact. After all, Mama-dactyl wants it back, as do monsters down below!
