Subject: My Daughter's and My Books and More
I think my daughter is getting more attention for HER current children’s book than I am for mine – and she’s not yet six years old! She created/illustrated the book KISKI THE CAT and already has a few impressive reviews, one being from THE editor of the *Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators Bulletin,* Stephen Mooser, who wrote:
“Dear Ayla -- I loved your story. It had lots going on, and I was very impressed with your art -- I have two cats myself and so I know a cute cat when I see one. Another thing that was special was the great names of all the cats … Keep up the writing.”
http://www.lulu.com/content/1162679 will bring you to Ayla’s book, so you can see its cover – as well as the MOST glowing review from author Sally Odgers at page’s bottom!
Not only that, the bright, teen author Melissa Walker, whose amazing site is at www.melissacwalker.com/blog wrote “Ayla’s ‘Kiski’ cover is gorgeous and so perfectly right.”
As for moi, my second “Aydil Vice” book, AYDIL VICE, AUTHOR OF KISKI THE CAT has gotten a couple of nice reviews too! http://www.lulu.com/content/1058012 takes you to it; you can see the two reviews at page’s bottom.
Also recently, I was honored to read a charged, emotional book called SAVING ZOE, and wrote about it here (thanks, Alyson, blessed gifted author)!
SIGH. Could there be more to this newsletter?
http://www.authorsden.com/visit/viewarticle.asp?AuthorID=2092 will take you to a *very* short sample of my now-out article in the SCBWI BULLETIN (Stephen Mooser’s publication), about writing locally. I think I can record the entire article next month, if you request me to – since then, it will be legally okay to do so (a la the “one time rights” clause)!
