We have a similar group, where no ads or "Buy-My-Book" auto-posting Spammers are allowed.  We promote each other's books, discuss the industry, marketing challenges and field Questions, Answers and discussions about our industry.  It certainly is much more pleasant when you eliminate the Spam.  Authors Pay it Forward Project is who we are and how we roll.  :)

Many of our favourite stories are set on a farm. Do you have a favourite farmyard story to add to our list?

Here's the next installment of the summer writing workshop I've been doing with both kids and adults... this week's theme is fun, as the kids got to explore life without parents, and parents went back to their childhood. Come take a look!
 
What would the kids do if all of the sudden they found they were on their own? What would adults do, if all of the sudden they woke up to find out they were kids again? Come read our wacky theme for this week's creative summer workshop!
In our writing workshop for kids and adults, we explored the theme of having a wacky day.

Feel free to read and download this wordless picture book. The title "Teman Baru" means "A New Friend". For all the kids in the world, what ever language they use.

Summer holidays are here which gives us lots of time for reading. We have created a reading tree to keep a record of the books we read over the summer.

Forget James Patterson's Zoo. For those who prefer their animal tales to be a little less violent but just as entertaining check out this latest anthology from Prints Charming Books, Zoo-thology. And yep, a couple of my crazy critter stories feature in this one too. Perfect for young readers who aren't quite into attacks on humanity just yet but adore animals. Let me know if you'd like one.
My words have appeared in a number of publications. If you'd like to find out more about my stories or obtain a copy, just drop me a line. My Books PS Who Stole Santa's Mail? Published: October 2012. Illustrator: Scott Anastasi Publisher: Morris Publishing Australia $15.95 RRP ...

Today I’m going to tell you about one of my favorite children books. I used to listen to it as a child. One day, when I was wondering around a bookstore, I’ve noticed this book staring at me. All I have is a tape recording, and we all know how popular that is now. Plus the book was specially illustrated and a hard cover version… I just had to buy it.

Book tells us a story of a little witch, well little for witch’s standard as she’s 127 years old. She already wishes to be all grown up, because then she’d be able to go to dance with all the grown up witches during Walpurgis Night. When she’s trying to sneak up to the dance, her scary aunt catches her. Aunt gives our little witch an ultimatum – girl will have one year to learn how to be a good witch.

Does everyone love "Magic Tree House" books as much as this 7-year-old?
Michael, our 7-year-old kids' book reviewer, has read every "Magic Tree House" book he can find in libraries and book stores. In this kids' book review, conducted in Charlottesville, Va., Michael reviews "Eve of the Emperor Penguin," giving it 99 million plus 99 stars.

Goodbye Stranger by Rebecca Stead
The newest book from Rececca Stead is, for me, an exploration of the hidden messages in language done on so many different levels.  What a joy to read!
