MY BOOK IS LISTED ONLINE
5/30/2008 6:28:57 AM
Finally, after a long wait, my book is listed on Amazon.com and Target.com. Others will follow, in the near future.
Just a quick note. Sleepy Town is now available through Amazon.com and Target.com. (Web site listed below this email.)
This is a new listing for both web stores.
You are not obligated to order from Amazon. I just wanted you to see that it is finally out.
When I have the book, (I have some ordered.) my local store THINK TOYS will have a book signing. I will let you know, just in case you would like to drop by. I will have Zander there that day signing the book, also.
I have been asked to be on a radio broadcast that will be June 23rd. (World-Wide) I will give you more information, later.
I am already starting to line-up visits to local schools for the fall. (This will be a blast!)
I have been asked about visiting two local colleges and talking to the Children's Lit Classes about writing and illustrating a book.
The local tv station is interested in knowing more.
I hope to visit my local Public Library and have a "Sleepytown Day." More information later.
Please, go to my "artnbooks" (See my links.)site and check out the additions. I am not finished, but it looks good.
There are so many possiblities! I am very excited about a chance for me to promote reading, writing, and art. That is what I want to do. I WANT CHILDREN TO GET EXCITED ABOUT BOOKS AND ART!!!
I would love to start a local painting class, but I can not afford the expensive rental charges for a place. They want an arm and a leg, and I need all of mine. LOL
Pray that God opens a door. Right now, I will take a window.
Thank You for reading about my excitement over my book.
Oops, I almost missed telling you. I sent off a short story that hopefully will be selected for a collection this fall. Cross your fingers.
More excitement: I was rejected by a magazine. Why am I excited? The editor said that it was a good story. He said that he enjoyed reading it. He said that it takes talent to write a good story. (THIS MEANS A BUNCH TO ME.) It is not quite winning the Lottery, but close. Not really!
ON TOP OF THAT: He said that he hoped that I would send other submissions. THAT IS HUGE!!!
I included this good note because I know that ALL OF YOU understand how huge this is for me.
It was a horror story. I have sent it out, again, to another magazine. Who knows, this one might say "YES!"

Please do not see this as a BRAG. I hate braggers! I am sharing a blessing.
Have a great summer.
