Lovely surprise to see the cover of my 'Daisy and Bartholomew Q' (MG fantasy) featured in Erika Szabo's Book Publishing Services video. Erika did an awesome job of formatting my book, and I learned a lot from her helpful comments and advice. She can do the same for YOU!

Happy to say that the weather here in Oregon is now lovely—down from the high nineties to the low eighties. WHEW!  --  ALSO spent time revamping and simplifying both my website’s home page and my Magic Carpet of Books. Please take a look and tell me what you think.

I reside in South Carolina and had to come to Va. Beach on the 1st of July so my brother and sister-in-law could go on vacation.  They came back Saturday and I was supposed to head home today but looks like at least this week, hopefully sooner - lol.  I don't know if he will get to look at it tonight being that it is about 8:30 PM now - :)

Kids like reading about a POV that is a little older. This was such fun to write.  The Bookworm, Bartholomew Q, and the Oogledork, still make me smile when I reread their segments.  And procrastination, as we writers know, can dump you into all sorts of problems.  Books can teach great life lessons in a sneaky kind of way--with the lesson disguised as a fun adventure.

Books are an Author's Pathway to Immortality --
PLUS the idea of your kids reading your favorite books to THEIR children is awesome.
