"I have a dream to create an organization with a message of love that celebrates the magic of childhood."

In short I feel blessed. This month I’ve obtained full time work, my children are thriving in a new school. In Arizona, everyone wears a mask, and for the most part the virus is on the decline. This month I was able to give 14 books away, 6 Bumble the Yeti, The Power of Yet, 4 My Little Luminaire, 2 Duck Duck Grey Duck and 2 The Lonely Bench. There’s a lot of generosity, and I thank the supporters of this website from the bottom of my heart. The numbers are great for September, and this is partially due to a new option in cart “Give Another One”. A patron selected Give Another One 4 times this month, which gave another 4 copies in addition to the 4 given with the purchase of the books. I’m glad that the compounding giving option it being used.
Christian Family Care is my favorite outlet for my books here, and their business model continues on despite Covid. Some of the other groups that I reach out to have suspended operations and this breaks my heart. Christian Family Care puts my books into adoption packages and this makes me very happy. I often imagine the children getting the books and the messages. They now know me, and treat me like a bit of a celebrity. I’m not in this for that at all, but it makes it very easy to get them books, and I try to get them books every other month depending on sales.
I’ve been working hard on two more books that I’d like to get out before Christmas. The first, is a children’s holiday release, and in place of a heart warming message, we have a heart warming message complimented with a rather large and continuous fart joke. The title is Sonic the Flatulent Reindeer and I’m looking forward to it’s release. The second is Empath the Self Love, and that’s the non-fiction that I’ve been working on for the last couple of years. It’s in edit right now, and I have a ways to go in process to get it out, but if everything were to process smoothly there’s an outside chance I can get it released before Christmas.
Well that’s it for updates, I super appreciate your support. It’s been a bit since I’ve rounded up the troops and asked for marketing support, so if you would like to help please:
1) Please go to my business Facebook page.
2) Scroll across the top, and click on “COMMUNITY”
3) Click “INVITE FRIENDS”
4) Click “ALL”
5) Please wait for a minute for the invitations to be sent.
I know it’s a lot to ask. By doing this you support my business and this has been the biggest driver of giving / purchases / support that I've received. Bigger than that you support messages of love and light, literacy, and education. Thank you so much for your support.
I'm writing for the love of writing and the joy it brings. I figure I can defeat illiteracy if I publish in a socially equitable way. To do this I give away one book, for every one purchased to an organization that supports at risk youth.
