So, I wrote a children’s book, my very first, and the awesome Carrie illustrated it with beautiful watercolor paintings. It’s a short and simple “bedtime book” for kids, newborn-4. I was wanting to make it a board book but found that to be near impossible for self-publishing.
I wrote this book a few years ago with Carrie and it’s finally published! If you ever need an illustrator, Carrie is the one. I’m slowly writing a blog based book including past posts and some new writing (if I can concentrate long enough to put it together) and I’m going to have Carrie do the cover for that as well.
I’m also writing an adult (no, not porn… although hmmm…) mystery called The Mill which I have been working on for at least 2 years but doubt has been plaguing me. Yes, I am my own worst enemy. Let me know if you’d like to read a little of the first chapter and maybe I’ll put it up in a post.
Back to the book at hand… I’m doing a giveaway for 2 books of Dream Of All The Stars Above. It’s open for everyone to enter. All you need to do is let me know what your favorite books to read were when you were a kid/teen.
For me, I absolutely adored all of the Ramona books by Beverly Cleary, which I’m now reading to my daughter (how awesome is that), Judy Blume rocked it (Are You There God, It’s Me Margaret and Tiger Eyes were my favorites!), and when I was a little older, I would get my hands on anything to do with V.C. Andrews. Yes, I am loving the movies Lifetime is doing based on the Flowers In The Attic books!
The giveaway is open for submissions, one per person that will be selected by the random number generator, until Tuesday, July 22nd at 8 pm EST. Good Luck!
