  1. I would like to introduce you to my new children’s self-esteem building adventure fiction books, Malia and Teacup : Awesome African Adventure, age 9 and up, and the younger version Malia and Teacup: Out on a Limb for ages 6-9.

    I am a licensed mental health counselor and I believe self-esteem is the root problem for children. When I was communicating with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, I was so distressed when they told me that Stranger Danger does not work. The majority of abductions and molestations are by someone the child already knows. I wrote the books to help empower kids and I would love to have you review them and help get the word out to keep kids safe.

    Kids will love the http://www.maliaandteacup.com
    web site and the T-shirts, totes, mouse pads and hats, too

    Thank you so much.

    Best wishes,
    Dr. Molly Barrow

  2. I have written three children’s books with my son. Two are pictures books that are getting published and the third is a short chapter book that we self published through createspace. All of our books are for Ages: 3-8. I have loved to draw and tell stories for as long as I can remember. And thought what better way to spend time with my child, than to do something we both love truly enjoy doing. I wanted to show him, dreams aren’t to far away as long as you are passionate about them and work hard.

    It is one of the most amazing experiences I’ve ever had, to write stories with my son. His imagination is amazing. We usually start out by drawing characters, giving them names and then creating a story to go with the characters.

    We have created t-shirts and coffee mugs to go with our books. You can find them at: http://www.gliffik.com/zetta

    We have also started a Kids Illustration Contest that ends on 9/15/09. The winner will get to choose the t-shirt of their choice, size and color from our designs. The top five will get a certificate and bookmark from The Hupf’s Bookshelf.

    Thank you very much!

  3. Thank you! I thought that kids would love to wear a t-shirt about a book they love to read.
    I just finished my 4th book and I’m trying to decide if I want to publish right away or wait for the 1st two to be completed. I tried markers for the illustrations this time and they turned out really nice.
    The new book is called: Max and Daisy’s Adventure To The Big Woods.
    The story is about two puppies named Max and Daisy finally get to go in to the big woods with their owner Jimmy. The explore and find different types of animals and bugs.

  5. Hi Cheryl

    I’m not needing a book review at the moment, as my new YA fantasy novel ‘Lethal Inheritance’ isn’t published yet, however If you’re interested, you can have a preview peek at ch 1 on http://publishersearch.wordpress.com

    Here’s a teaser

    If last night was real then Ariel should be dead, but her mother has disappeared, there are bruise marks on her neck and that hideous beast in the photo looks frighteningly familiar.

    No, the beast isn’t a vampire.

    If you like what you read, I’d really appreciate it if you mentioned it to your readers as an upcoming book and suggest they go to the site for a peek.
