Author K.N. Smith Releases Audiobook Version of Her Gripping YA Novel, “The Urban Boys”

Debut adventure novel called “Beautifully mesmerizing and wonderfully addicting!” by insiders

SACRAMENTO, Calif., April 19, 2016 (Google News) – Author K.N. Smith announced today the release of the highly entertaining audiobook version of her gripping action-adventure debut novel, The Urban Boys: Discovery of the Five Senses (ISBN-9780989474757, 292 pages, $12.95; e-book $3.99). The audiobook (ISBN-9780989474771, $19.95) is narrated by famous voice-artist Daniel Baker and carries the mysterious and intriguing tone of the print version amongst the detailed, cinematic-level action within the story. Embraced by mature readers as well as the young adult community, The Urban Boys has been called “The Hardy Boys for this generation,” and “By far the best YA paranormal I have read in a long time,” by bloggers, teachers, reviewers, and everyday readers. It offers a rich, lyrical read, unlike many YA novels saw today, and stretches the imagination of those seeking a deeper reading experience.

Established in the Young Adult and Adult Action-Adventure categories alike, The Urban Boys is an action-adventure/paranormal story about five teen boys who are mysteriously exposed to a foreign energy source that gives them extremely heightened senses. Sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell become hypersensitive gifts that forever change the world. The story exposes the testing of their deep bonds as the boys face furious battles while on an individual journey, but they must find a way to embrace their fate. A lurking, dark stranger seems to know their plight and a strikingly beautiful yet fearless girl lends way to heightened confusion. Shocking details about these two characters, and Truth, the evil antagonist, twist and grind the story even further.


“The Urban Boys hits the ground running and never looks back. Author K.N. Smith uses her mastery of the written word to weave an entrancing, yet compelling tale of bonding, loyalty, and adventure that keeps you turning pages in an unquenchable desire to find out what happens next. The author’s excellent prose details cinematic fight sequences and fully developed characterizations especially in a final, stupendous scene that will take your breath away and leave you limp with spent emotions. Five stars for this imaginative and inspiring story!” said Don Sloan of Publishers Daily Reviews.

In addition to the launch of the audiobook version, the e-book version of The Urban Boys: Discovery of the Five Senses, available at,, the Apple iBookstore and other e-book outlets, goes on sale today for $0.99 for a limited time. The saga continues with the next book in the series available in the spring of 2017. For media inquiries, please contact K.N. Smith at (916) 288-8466, via email to, or visit

Reasons to book a limo

A lot of people think they need a special occasion to rent a limousine. That’s not entirely accurate, according to the owner of North Star Limos.

“You can get a limo any time for any reason,” said Nav, owner of the company. “Yes, a lot of people do like to have one for a wedding or to attend a formal event. Limos are very popular for high school proms. But you can get one for more reasons than that.”

Make an occasion. Any time people can get together, especially with friends they have not seen in a long time, a limo makes a perfect ride. It is the perfect way for everyone to sit together and not have to worry about the road.

This is the beauty of a limo. The driver handles the journey while the group enjoys themselves with good laughter, a drink and a chance to unwind in style.

Just show up in style. Nothing says style like a limo, Nav said.

There is no particular reason for a limo. Taking a date out to a movie sounds bland and boring. Show up in a limo, however, and the time takes a sharp turn for the better.

Several different options are available from a classic stretch Lincoln to a modern SUV. Pictures and additional information available on the website. Learn more or how to book a limo ride in the Surrey area, visit

Happy Goon: Next Generation Interactive Greeting Cards that Make a Lasting Impression

Buy these high-quality greeting cards online anytime, send them anywhere, and watch them come to life with the Happy Goon app.

New York, NY April 20, 2016 – Happy Goon has taken the age old tradition of sending and receiving greeting cards and given it a digital upgrade. This online greeting card company offers customizable, interactive greeting cards that come to life when paired with the accompanying app. Happy Goon cards can still be enjoyed by those who are not technologically inclined, because they look and feel just like a regular greeting card, but the real magic happens when the person receiving the card downloads the app, points their phone at the front of the card, and the add-ons appear. Personalized notes and even video messages can be added to the card creating a truly unique experience for any special occasion. Thanks to the Happy Goon scheduling feature, these special days will never be missed.

The system is very simple. To buy a card, a customer visits the website to select a card, creates the message they would like inside the card (or opts to deliver it to themselves for a handwritten note), and chooses the date that the card should be given. As a recipient, they download the app from the website, point their phone at the front of the card, and watch as it transforms in front of their eyes.


Of the several extra features, Happy Goon offers, one that stands out is the delivery service in which the customer can schedule their entire year’s worth of cards in a day. There are also countless ways to personalize the cards to make them one-of-a-kind and a perfect fit for their recipient. Any text can be added to the front or inside of the card in handwritten fonts, pictures and videos can be upload, and this is all seamlessly integrated with the overall experience.

“The greeting card market has been declining over the last few years. In America alone the industry has reduced in size by around one billion dollars since 2008. This is mainly due to the introduction of smartphones and the acceptance of online media alternatives like e-cards. What we are doing with Happy Goon is making it, so you get all the joy and sentimentality of receiving a physical card in the mail, but making it more convenient and enjoyable, like their E-card counterparts.” explains CEO and co-founder, Colin Hughes.

Hughes has worked as a designer for many years and is particularly interested in taking new technology and implementing it in a fun, dynamic way. Together with co-founder and CTO, Tim Mutlow, he has spent the last year developing the Happy Goon greeting card collection, website, and app. What started as a class project at Pratt Institute, now has a live website and its first selection of cards that has been tested and proven to work with the Happy Goon app. Hughes is now ready to make Happy Goon available to the public.

As a way to raise funds to expand the selection of cards available and add even more customization features, Hughes has launched a Kickstarter campaign. Happy Goon greeting cards and Happy Goon greeting card subscriptions are just a few of the exciting rewards available for preorder until May 14, 2016.
