Books: Creating Positive Public Response

This photo of my grandmom and I was taken in 1976. I included it in the special ebook edition of Maddie: Teaching Tolerance with a Smile. That fond picture, along with a number of other behind-the-scenes tidbits, was put into my digital edition for a reason. 

My goal as a writer is to convey a variety of messages in a way that is very personal. Those choices represent my entire life experience and aren't fully explainable to anyone. Every writer understands, in varying degrees, the importance of those last two sentences. 

Deep experience working for and with quality individuals over the years allowed me to make seasoned choices regarding the print and ebook editions during this project's development.

I'll be sharing more positive background information about my first published book in the near future. Until then, keep on reading, writing, and living your life in a purposeful manner.  

Big Amazon days

Last month and again earlier this month, Maddie ranked 45th on Amazon in it's specific illustrated children's category. Everyone involved in this effort, that helps to benefit the Children's Alopecia Project, is very grateful for the public response that we have received since the print and ebook's release in August, 2013.

I've included extra bonus features in this version that provide background information, extra photos, and illustrations. Each item helps to tell the complete story of this book's birth.
