Willie Tee, click here to update your pages on AuthorsDen.

Hi there readers and fellow authors. I am Willie Tee and I send out newsletters from time to time to keep you informed of the progress I am making in the promotion of my book, The Winds of Destiny, 2nd Edition. I will mention in my newsletter book festivals, speaking engagements and book signings that I attended or will attend in the future. I also inform readers of other fellow authors that I have met and the titles of their books. Importantly, I want to encourage others to become authors, a dream come true, and to provide them guidance on how to become skillful authors.

Subject: Shake a Tail Feather

I was elected as the Vice President of Read Aloud Virginia (non profit that encourages literacy by parents reading to their children) about two weeks ago. RAV had its kick off for Read to a Child Week 16-23 October 2005 on Saturday, 15 October 2005, at the Byrd Theater, West Cary Street, Richmond, Virginia. The mascot of RAV (Read Aloud Virginia) is a red Cardinal Bird named "Einstein". "Einstein" made its big debut on Saturday and the mascot suit was worn by Vickie who is managed by her husband Randy. I am infamous for not revealing last names, but celebrities, to include mascot suit wearers, need their privacy. Vickie did an incredible job as Einstein and representatives of the Library of Virginia, who were present at the Event, are arranging for Einstein (Vickie) to appear at the Library of Virginia soon. Clifford the Dog (mascot suit wearer) was also available and handed out miniature stuffed Cliffords to attendees. The public will see more of Einstein during the future. Einstein presented me with a stray tail feather for use as a book marker, after it was recovered by a sharp eyed adolescent boy. Chief Rodney Monroe of the Richmond Police Dept, Officer M.P. Kearney of the Waynesboro Police Dept, who is the President of the non profit (Book Em), Kat Simons of Radio Station Lite 98 FM, several other celebrities and myself spoke at the event. Our messages were, "Read Books to Children & Prevent Crimes by Youths".

I will be at Waynesboro, Virginia the weekend of 23-24 October 2005 for the Book Em Book Festival Fundraiser, which has been advertised in the news media. This year there will be 75 or more authors selling books, to include myself, to raise money for Book Em. Book Em is an organization which sends out Police Officers and other volunteers to schools and other locations to give children free books (Book Em). Well, it better to Book Em now (youths)with reading than to arrest them later when they are teens or adults. If you want to know more about this event go to the Book Em site by typing in the keywords "Book Em".

There are about 75 days remaining in this year 2005, with Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Eve waiting in the wings. I have several book signings scheduled from now until the end of the year. I will also appear at the fundraisers or Bowl a Thon and Santa Shop at Byrd Middle School during November and December. We (RAV) are also doing some fast moves and will set up a fundraiser with one of the national chain bookstores during the Xmas season. I will send more details later. If you are a member of a sororiety, rotary, book club, employed at a company or agency or other misc groups, consider entering your group in the Bowl A Thon to raise money for RAV. Go to for more details and click on the upcoming fundraising events that will occur from now to Christmas. If you got something to vend, consider beng a vendor at the Santa or Xmas Event during December 2005. The vendor application is also at the Read Aloud Viirginia website.

In closing, I extend my prayers to those countries (USA included) and their people who have suffered substantial natural and man made disasters during the year 2005. We must continue to help and assist each other across the globe. Extending to you and your families the most joyous and prosperous holiday season.
