The Wizard of Swamp Alley (Book) - 2/18/2008 8:42:14 PM
I'll have to say the same thing again. I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!!!! It's better than the other two and they're good. Hatazoo? Where did you come up with that name along with the land of Lackluster? It all fit in so well. Your imagination amazes me. I won't stumble into the OTHER SIDE, lol , even on the bayou, and Hatazoo is not where I want to end up. It was a chilling read, but very much enjoyable. Many stars for this one! Remember our YaYa Stuff, lol. It's still a sisterhood. Congratulations on the book. ya ya gladys

The Wizard of Swamp Alley (Book) - 2/10/2008 8:11:25 AM
The Wizard of Swamp Alley In the Land of Sha Bebe By Mary Lynn Plaisance The third book in the series of Mary Lynn Plaisance folklore novels In the Land of Sha Bebe. The adorable citizens of the Land of Sha Bebe, the cloth dolls, are entering a new adventure, meet new friends and foes, while learning new values during their preparations for their favorite Holiday, Halloween. “Where am I?” Poulette was floating in mid-air. “How did I get right here?” She looked around and saw nothing but the gray sky and a hole in the back of the armoire, and she was in the back of it. “But how can I be in the back of the armoire, when the armoire is against the wall?” One of the magic quilts came floating out of the hole, and Poulette grabbed it to sit on, while she tried to figure out where she was. “Did I die?” she said to herself. She was surrounded by the drab, outdoor gray sky of this unknown place. When she turned to her left, she saw a huge sign on a tree that said GRAVEYARD. “Oh sha, I must be dead for sure.” All of a sudden she heard voices. Still floating on the quilt in mid-air, she looked down and noticed she was in another land of dolls. It seemed as though she was in another dimension that was an exact replica in structure, but not at all like their land in appearance. Unlike their own land, this one was filled with dolls that had clothes that were shabby and soiled and hair that was a tangled mess of gray and white... Dedicated to the spirit of Louisiana and based on the folklore of the land, this last book of the In the Land of Sha Bebe trilogy, this novel is as original as the Sha Bebe dolls, also created by Mary Lynn Plaisance and greatly entertaining for all ages. Although it’s the third of the Sha Bebe books, it can be read as a single novel without causing confusion for the reader. However, once you’ve read one of them, you might really want to read the others: Do you Believe In the Land of Sha Bebe and Cajun Fairies In the Land of Sha Bebe. A very enjoyable, magical adventure, entertaining and compelling, written with the loving dedication to Louisiana. R&B Pratcher, 2008

I had a slow start with "The Wizard of Swamp Alley". My husband, Teddy, had open heart surgery only a few days after this book went live. Thank God... he is well, he is home, and now we can now get this book on the road. It's only the beginning for this third book about the enchanting and magical Land of Sha Bebe. Stay tuned Sha Bebe Fans, there's more coming. Sending LOVE to everyone in the Den. Mary Lynn Plaisance

Do you believe? -- In the Land of Sha Bebe (Book) - 5/8/2007 12:05:14 PM
Cajun Fairies In the Land of Sha Bebe By Mary Lynn Plaisance The legend of the magical fairies and their dolls in the sugarcane fields continues with Mary Lynn Plaisance’s novel Cajun Fairies In the Land of Sha Bebe. Enter a new dimension, be enchanted and fall in love with the magical fairies and dolls in the land of Sha Bebe! (You don’t have to be young to enjoy this novel!) After you enter the magical land of the dolls that live in the sugarcane fields of Louisiana, you will be drawn into the events of a crisis which threatens to destroy the peaceful place of the happy Sha Bebe dolls. Along the read the pictures of the Sha Bebe dolls, created by Mary Lynn Plaisance give the story an extra touch of loving design. Something was not right in the land of the Sha Bebe dolls. Queen Faustina, who ruled the land, didn’t know exactly what was wrong, but something was brewing. She usually was right with her hunches, and boy, she sure felt something was going to go haywire. Worried about the level of her gut feeling, she decided to visit all of the residents to make sure everything was going well in each one of their homes. Soon enough the Queen will find out that her hunches are right on the spot and will face the greatest evil that has ever posed a threat to her beloved land and all her dolls. Robes Pierre, a wicked Cajun Fairy, is taking over the spirit of the enchanted Land of Sha Bebe. His wicked spell is taking away all the beauty and the goodness of the land and Queen Faustina will have to face her troubles head on. With her book Cajun Fairies In the Land of Sha Bebe, folklore author Mary Lynn Plaisance brings yet again the love and comfort of the legendary dolls to life. One just can’t resist the Cajun charm of the enchanted land of the Sha Bebe Kingdom and quickly you will drift off into a fantastic adventure, leaving behind your sorrow and worries and come to face the fact that life should really not be all that complicated. Mary Lynn Plaisance has done a wonderful job inviting the readers to truly relax and escape from the harsh reality of our world into the pleasant world of Cajun magic. Her love for Louisiana and New Orleans gives the book an extra note of folkloristic entertainment and achievement. Cajun Fairies In the Land of Sha Bebe can stand as a sequence to Mary Lynn Plaisance first book Do you Believe In the Land of Sha Bebe or stand on its own as a great novel for really all ages and filled with all the right values for the entire family. © R&B Pratcher 2008

Do you believe? -- In the Land of Sha Bebe (Book) - 1/23/2007 8:39:15 PM
I read this book too! Although it wasn't as intriguing as Cajun Fairies, it set a good introduction for a series of books. Keep the writings coming. You have something going. J. C.

Cajun Fairies (Book) - 1/23/2007 8:22:20 PM
I love your book. It's fitting for you to dedicate it to the Spirit of Louisiana, but it's for readers around the world. The rhyme fasinated me. Without giving anything away, I like the way you described Robes Pierre, and his ultimate end. Mystery surrounds your dolls. :) I feel them as human, IN the sugarcane fields. A GOOD READ! J. C.

Cajun Fairies (Book) - 1/17/2007 10:04:34 PM
I can't say enough about Cajun Fairies! It has all the marks of a classic. It's life as we live it. Your depth of emotion in this fairy tale is immense. Even the parts that reigned a chuckle in my heart were laced with emotions, and yet, I still laughed at Plume and Poulette's visit to New Orleans. If the Wizard has this impact on me, and I'm sure he will, I'll begin to see dolls with souls. :) I'm an avid reader. Place a knotch on your pen for this one. It's good.

Do you believe? -- In the Land of Sha Bebe (Book) - 1/17/2007 1:40:35 PM
After getting your second book Cajun Faires for Christmas, I purchased your first book. While they both stand on their own as a good read, I wish I had read them in order. I enjoyed both too much. Both are way kewl. I love fantasy fiction. I'm still watching and waiting for The Wizard of Swamp Alley. :)

Cajun Fairies (Book) - 12/20/2006 11:36:38 AM
Your book ROCKS. It was my Christmas present, but I opened it way early. It's way kewl. I can't wait to read about the wizard next.

Cajun Fairies (Book) - 12/18/2006 11:46:04 AM
Your book was highly enchanting. I enjoyed every page. It's a 5 star rating by my standards. Enchantment can happen anywhere, even in the sugarcane fields. Thanks for bringing the legend of the faeries to Louisiana in such a captivating tale. I knew they were here.

Cajun Fairies (Book) - 12/18/2006 11:29:31 AM
Cajun Fairies was a delightful read. I didn't think suspense could be incorporated so well into a fairy tale about dolls, but I loved the suspense that was delivered. A wonderful book recommened for teens and adults. Oh that Robes Pierre was so wicked, but he didn't know what he was going to get, messing with Cajun dolls. :)

Cajun Fairies (Book) - 12/13/2006 7:35:53 PM
My wife bought your book. We're both avid readers of fiction. She left it on the end table, and I picked it up for a glimpse. I wasn't expecting to like it. :)I was amazed at the strength of your characters, the plot of such a whimisical, magical, fiction/fantasy story, with a bang of an ending. I believe. :) D.J.

Cajun Fairies (Book) - 12/12/2006 8:22:08 AM
I enjoyed Cajun Faires from cover to cover. I liked the mystery of the ryhme involved in finding Robes Pierre. Your characters are life-like. A great read! I recommend to everyone. ***** stars.

Cajun Fairies (Book) - 12/6/2006 1:31:53 PM
Cajun Fairies is a darn good book that's in libraries and a lot of other shops in Louisiana. It's a must read, that was written by my wife, Mary Lynn Plaisance. Love you, Teddy Plaisance

Cajun Fairies (Book) - 11/1/2006 9:37:12 PM
Glad I met you in Baton Rouge. Cajun Faires is more than I expected. Filled with life experiences told through the lives of dolls as in an animated film. Something like Cinderella or Alladin. I'd recommend your book to everyone. I enjoyed reading every page. I'm ordering two more for Christmas gifts. Congrats on a five star review, imho. Mary Ellen

Cajun Fairies (Book) - 10/9/2006 11:04:22 AM
Mary Lynn, I wasn't expecting to read so much in Cajun Fairies. It's filled with action which kept me in suspense and wondering how it would end, but I didn't want it to end. I wasn't disappointed with any part of your book. The ending was great! I love all of your characters, but Queen Faustina is my favorite. Keep your stories coming. I'll highly recommend Cajun Fairies to everyone. An excellent read! Margie

Can't wait for your next novel to come out. You certainly have a great imagination---WARPED--but that is a GOOD THING for a writer--LOL. Mary, thanks for all your hard work--all i can say is that it was worth it. Craig Leonard ------------------ I'm coming in with the email for Teddy.

Cajun Fairies (Book) - 9/30/2006 9:14:57 PM
Your book was everything you said it would be, and more. I found myself totally occupied with the tales and wondering how it would end. The ending was unexpected, and as I thought of it later, you planned this plot so well. Cajun Faires will do well! You've created a wonderful enchanted land for everyone. Very uplifting story.

Cajun Fairies (Book) - 9/30/2006 8:29:51 PM
Mary Lynn, I enjoyed your book so much. It's not just a fairy tale for humans of all ages. You placed many philosophies which can be used in our lives. I felt so much wisdom in your book. A few of the quotes changed my outlook on my own life. I recommend Cajun Fairies for everyone. I send congratulations to you on your writing. Well done. 5 star***** Julie

Cajun Fairies (Book) - 9/29/2006 5:54:41 AM
Reviewed by Mags~ (Reader) 9/28/2006 Cajun Fairies ~ In the Land of Sha Bebe by, Mary Lynn Plaisance Do you believe in Fairies? If not, then Cajun Fairies is the place to start believing! Mary Lynn Plaisance starts off weaving a tale of folklore and fantasy, set in the Louisiana sugarcane fields. There you will find the dolls who live in the magical land of Sha Bebe. There are also the Fairies, both good and wicked and it is with this plot that the story takes off on gossamer wings. A summary, taken from the back of the book, starts you off with the wicked Cajun Fairy, Robes Pierre, who wants to take over the Land of Sha Bebe. With the dolls under his influence, who will help save this enchanted place? Will he succeed in his evil ways or will magic save the land? Who are the Cajun Fairies? Also called the Fee Folay (Feufollet in French,) the tale started as early as the '40's in the bayous. Some said it was swamp gas that made those lights shoot in and out of the tree's. Soon, one explanation became a legend - that they were fairies or sometimes the ghosts of a loved one. Some people were happy to see them and other's, not sure of what they were, became afraid. Mary Lynn took them and made them into Cajun Fairies, who came here to help humans. But why would a fairy doll be needed to help humans? I think some quotes from her book might explain it well. "Most humans still saw life as a struggle... once they learned the lesson of 'you get what you tolerate,' then it was much easier for them to let go of the battles that laid inside of them, and change was easier to accept." This is so very true and the point is made with the help of the teacher, Betty Lou, who prepares the boy and girl dolls to go out into the human world, who in turn, help them learn. On how long time had been in the land... "Time is irrelevant.... Dolls help humans... without that help, humans would not learn the lessons and wouldn't continue to grow in spirit." There is a healer, who lives in the swamps with the fabulous name of Marie La Vie. She has a special place in her home where she meditates and she tells anyone who visits her that, "... if someone believed a certain legend or an act to be true, then it was true to the one who believed. Belief was inside of the self." When the wicked Robes Pierre makes his entrance and decides to take the land of Sha Bebe, the Queen of the Land, is infuriated and calls him a coward. "A ruler doesn't hide in the darkness." And in the Land of Sha Bebe, there is no need for any harm, because it was always peaceful and now that peace is threatened by a Wicked Fairy who "does not know how to experience happiness." Much like Robes Pierre, "Some beings are like this inside their hearts. Some can't do good, just as some can't do harm. There are more wicked ones of the Earth who had to be addressed as non-productive to the growth of spirit." The story flies you along on a magic quilt ride, taking you in and out of fantasy and reality, from the sugar cane fields to the French Quarter, in New Orleans. You can hear the people and taste the experiences, just as the dolls do. But as with all good tales, one must come to an end and what does happen with the wicked Robes Pierre? That, you will have to find out for yourself by reading this wonderful book. The dolls and the Good Cajun Fairy will have to seet if, "wicked can prevail." Perhaps, like in the human world, "only when the ones who want goodness to exist, do nothing to stop it." When, "fear is the most powerful weapon... anyone can gain control over anyone else... destroying only for the sake of destroying." Written at the time of Hurricane Katrina, this story brings a lot of light and much needed fairy dust to those who were left in the dark. And as Mary Lynn says, " in the land of Cajun Fairies, they will surivive, because without hope, we have nothing. Hope, kindness and love... The perfect key to living both in the magical land of Sha Bebe and in our human world." I believe the same thing the author does and cannot sum it up any better then she, "Dreams do come true. Just let them enter." Mary Lynn can be found at Cajun Fairies, here on Myspace. Please, take a little trip to the land of the Sha Bebe's and let your dreams come true. ---------

Cajun Fairies (Book) - 8/1/2006 10:54:12 PM
I recommend Cajun Fairies for all age groups. It’s not a children’s book, and you show the readers dignity in the Cajun culture, even though you express your words through dolls. It’s a book for everyone.

Cajun Fairies (Book) - 8/1/2006 6:18:40 PM
A MUST READ. Got your book. Couldn't wait any longer. You've created a Cajun fairy land, like Walt created a Disneyland. That's the way I read it. Your characters feel like a Disney scene set in the sugar cane fields. Madam Plume is my favorite with the Queen and the Poulette a close second. I savored every page of your story. I give you 5 stars. The cajun fairy gets a seperate 5 stars. :) Lana

Cajun Fairies (Book) - 7/24/2006 8:08:09 PM
I heard yesterday that your new book was published. I'll be in Baton Rouge in October. I have your first book. Never heard about cajun fairies but I'm a friend of the Fae and can't WAIT to read about them. Your introduction sounds so interesting! Gloria.

Cajun Fairies (Book) - 7/24/2006 8:07:44 AM
I read your book over the weekend. It's not just a Louisiana book. There are messages for everyone to read and learn in the words you wrote. My favorite part was when Madam Plume and Madam Poulette came back from New Orleans. Heart-breaking but I did laugh and cry through out the book. You have a way of spreading many emotions which all blend in well at the right time. I'm now a devouted Doll Land fan. I'll see you in Baton Rouge to get 2 more Cajun Fairies books and I want mine autographed. ::applauding you Mary Lynn::

Great individual thinking! By your thinking and observations you have shared my thoughts at one point in my life. I have since found the answers to all of the questions you posed in your article,so if you contact me I would share more. Once there was The Old Testament, then came The New Testament and now, The Now Testament! Only this time it is not according to your predictions! Best wishes.

The Invisible Mother (Short Story) - 4/1/2012 6:37:36 PM
I loved this story!I always think to myself..i wonder if my kids truly know how much i do for them and go out of my way to make sure they have everything they need and try to get them things they want. After reading this i realized that one day they will be in my position and i will share this with them and then i will have my answer :)

A Book Called Bible--My Peace at Last Moment (Short Story) - 1/1/2010 5:46:36 PM
The Protetant Bible contains 66 books (39 OT, 27 NT); the Catholic Bible contains 73 books (46 OT, 27 NT); the Eastern Orthodox Bible contains 78 books (51 OT, 27 NT). The Hebrew Bible (the name of the OT by Jews) contains only 24 books. I collect Bibles. All depends on what books you want to read. Thank you Henry, but I was speaking about the movie and the harm that words brought to one young man. There have been many others, but I was focusing on this one movie. I still live by two lines: The greatest gift of all is love. The kingdom of God is within YOU.

A Book Called Bible--My Peace at Last Moment (Short Story) - 10/19/2009 9:03:29 PM
The Bible is God’s letter to humanity collected into 66 books written by 40 divinely inspired writers. These writers come from all walks of life (i.e., kings to fishermen) and spans over a period of 1,500 years or more. These claims may seem dramatic (or unrealistic to some), but a careful and honest study of the biblical scriptures will show them to be true. 2 Timothy 3:16 states that “All scripture is inspired by God….” In 2 Peter 1:20-21, Peter reminds the reader to “know this first of all, that no prophecy of scripture is a matter of one’s own interpretation, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.” The Bible itself tells us that it is God who is the author of His book. The design of the Bible itself is a miracle. Written over more than 1,500 years by vastly different writers, yet every book in the Bible is consistent in its message. These 66 books talk about history, prophecy, poetry, and theology. Despite their complexity, differences in writing styles and vast time periods, the books of the Bible agree miraculously well in theme, facts and cross-referencing. No human beings could have planned such an intricate combination of books over a 1,500-year time span.

WE the PEOPLE-- Of the United States of AMERICA (Short Story) - 10/15/2009 7:08:00 PM
Mary Lynn: It hasn't even been a year since Obama has been in Office and so many people are (or I should say have) expected too much. He has tried to do what he promised in his campaign -- yet many have expected it to be completed within his first 100 days. He of course, is not a miracle man. But as far as I can see, he is the "RIGHT" man. He is the man who took office and stood up to other countries -- extended his hand and said we are sorry for our past mistakes but it is a new day in America! He is right! America is now once again a Country that is PROUD. America is once again a Country that other countries once again look up to. He came into office with an economy meltdown, with two wars at hand and where our image had been so tarnished most of us were embarassed to admit we were natives of this country. He has given us back our beautiful Country, once again instilled that pride, ended one war, ended torture, closed Gitmo and has extended his hand to all nations. He is exactly what we needed WHEN we needed IT. We are once again, WE the PEOPLE -- Of the United States of AMERICA and I know I am proud!

Might not agree with everything he/you say, but we must unite. We must support our next president. It's just been so hard, Mary Lynn, so hard ... and I fear things are going to get rougher before they get better. (((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Lord, I want that man who says he is not perfect (as none of us are not perfect), to keep his word if he is elected President! I want My America BACK and that safe FEELING I had when I heard his words! Thank you Lord.

Thanks (((karla))--and I do know what you mean. It's not easy pickings, but we all know what party is in office now and what that party will continue to do. So if we want the same thing we have to keep picking the same ones. If we pick a different party, then we may get change--- but what change? No one knows yet. It's very hard times right now. I hope that our America the Beautiful can be restored to the way it was when we all felt safe and secure. If not, there is always the option for "WE the People of the U.S.A"--to revolt. I pray I don't ever see that happen. Love you Karla Mary Lynn Plaisance Mama of the Cajun Fairies~

It's going to be a good Super Bowl....Bears and Colts. Thanks to all of you...*smiles* I don't GET Haiku either, Tina, but they say it's a form of poetry. I don't know if it's good or not. I'll just take the word of the one's who understand 17 syllables. My grandson can do this. It's only three lines. It's not like a ~~~ novel. Well until next year..... We still LOVE our SAINTS~!

Thank you for asking about me. LOL. Sage is right, and now it's my fault that I haven't finished up. My daughter sent me her part but I've been overwhelmed with lots of STUFF. ;-) Will get back to that project though soon. And Mark Rockeymoore's just finished up our CD project with Aberjhani. Whew!

This form of poem truly is a challenge. You did wonderful!

5/7/5 Haiku ... The Bebe Land Band (Poetry) - 3/12/2006 5:08:58 AM
Very nice seventeen syllables which most asurdely painted a picture in MY mind. Nice to see you at the book signing yesterday. I call this senryu by the way, it is an ongoing battle with me and the form. Haiku is supposed to be only about about nature, if it is about anything other than nature it is senryu. Of course I suppose the participants of this magical band are animals it might be rightly seen as haiku. Whot do I know? LOL Whatever, I found it very enjoyable and you have to introduce them to the world in you next book.

5/7/5 Haiku ... The Bebe Land Band (Poetry) - 3/12/2006 3:39:15 AM
Sha Bebe, Seventeen short syllables never sounded so good! They fairly waltz off the page and get the reader's feet to tapping and put a smile on the face...o, how I love this one! I absolutely love Dupre'. :) So adorable! LOL at Karen's "But I still say they need a Cajun accordion player" comment. Gotta agree with that. :) And a 'tit fer. :) Can't play the accordion, but can play a mean 'tit fer... (((((HUGS))))) and love to you and all of the gang in Sha Bebe land, Karla.

5/7/5 Haiku ... The Bebe Land Band (Poetry) - 3/11/2006 9:22:22 PM
I love this! So this is what the embedded music does, automatically starts when the page is hit. I tried today to put Hotel California to the code you gave me, but I had trouble. I am going to work with it again. I will get it. Something though I question is if I embed the music, then it won't be able to be downloaded. My fans download my music and burn CDs, especially my fans from France and the UK, as they love American music. The ku is outstanding! You know what this reminds me of is those animals all on stage at a kid's pizza place here called Chuck E. Cheeze and ShowBiz pizza. They have all of these animals on stage, animated with neon lights and music. The kids and adults go wild. Your characters would be great enlarged to stage size and put in a kids pizza palace. You could do the music. Very entertaining. I can see the alligator, raccoon, and cat with their instruments jammin' Mary! Excellent! Sage

Mary Lynn, This is really sad but reveals the truth too many have to live with every day. Substance abuse is running rampant in this world, and so many lives are destroyed that one could never take an acurate count. Wonderful message here Mary Lynn. Lisa

Faith or Fear (Poetry) - 2/27/2006 5:14:31 AM
Beautiful picture and poem, Mary! You have raised some good questions. Does one believe in one's faith because out of fears? or does one believe in one's faith because of the faith itself? I can speak for myself only: I believe in God because He answers my prayers; I believe in God because He has earned my trust in Him. It was NEVER from fears. Sandie May Angel a.k.a. Sandie Angel :o)

Sha Bebe, You pen a thought provoking write here; well you teach a powerful lesson, one that I need.
