I love the earth; its beauty and grandeur. God's hand is obvious, for man could never create something so function-able and beautiful at the same time as Mother Earth.
I just got back from a ride with my husband in his convertible. What a gorgeous day--how fitting for Earth Day. In honor of Earth Day and God's creations, I would like to share a children's book manuscript I've written. I don't know if I'll ever get it published because I hear that the picture book market is quite flat, plus I've never really sent it out there. But it communicates what I feel. I love trees. (Big surprise--I have a degree in botany).
Today for the letter S I would also like to mention a new diet/fitness website, Slimkicker.com
It's an innovative idea to help you stay motivated and accountable in your quest for better health and fitness. It is a level up game that turns your diet and/or weight loss goals into a winnable game. Check it out if you get a chance.
My blog tour is finished. Thanks to everyone who participated.
Michelle Jefferies, you are the lucky winner of a portable puppet stage and 5 puppets and 3 sets of puppet props as part of my grand giveaway contest in celebration of the release of my new book. I hope you enjoy them and I hope you get an opportunity to read my new book, Promises.
One of my favorite books that I read last year was Variant, by Robison Wells. Variant is a dystopic YA novel with a Lord of the Flies type feel, but much more enjoyable. If you're a fan of dystopia you'll want to read it.
I definitely want to try and win a copy of an ARC for the sequel, Feedback. If you'd like to have a chance to win a copy too, you'll want to enter the contest Rob is hosting on his blog.
If you would like to check out my review of his book (I posted a few months ago) then check out my blog post about Variant.
Today is the letter D in the A to Z blog hop, and it just happens to be the Promises Blog Tour stop at Mary Ann Dennis's blog. I love coincidences. So read about Dragons in the previous post, and then hop over to Mary Ann Dennis's blog and see what she has to say about promises. My book blog tour is quickly coming to an end, so if you haven't had a chance, make sure you enter my grand giveaway contest.
Today is the 11th day of the Promises Blog Tour. You'll want to stop by Renae Mackley's blog and read her experience with teaching a group of young women about the importance of keeping their promises.
Today is the ninth day of the Promises Blog Tour. Please stop by Sandra Stiles' blog and read the touching story she shares about making promises to her children, and how her husband's weaknesses in keeping promises, help her to keep hers. Also check out her review of my new book, Promises. And if you haven't had a chance yet, make sure you enter my book tour giveaway for $290 worth of puppets and a stage.
Yes, I'm participating in the A to Z blog hop. I did it last year and I loved it. I've decided to do animals and the alphabet. If only I were an illustrator, I could put my 26 posts together and have myself a picture book. But since I'm not, I'll just have fun with this blog hop. I hope you do too.
An astronaut packed an apple and left the atmosphere
headed to an asteroid. The trip would take a year.
He packed alphabet soup for dinner, for breakfast applesauce,
ants for his pet alligator, and lots of dental floss.
