Today is the day! After years of work, Reading Toward Success: Tried-and-True Practices for Raising Successful Kids is on SALE on Amazon.com!
I have to admit: this is a bit surreal. I've been working on this book for so long, and to finally see it in FOR SALE??? On AMAZON??? Weird. Really.
But I'm proud. The topic of this book is the passion of my heart, and I truly hope that it can help the world of parents out there, all over the world. It's humbling really, to put my thoughts out there, but I believe in what I say, so I'm sayin' it: parents MUST get involved in their kids' reading on a daily basis. It is a life-building, life-changing skill, and we can no longer expect schools to do all the teaching for us as parents. Interested in what more I have to say? Check out the book!
So what's next? Well, a bit of a brain break, but I've got a few projects that are going. One is a picture book that I also have been working on for years. This one I want a traditional publisher for. It needs illustrations—really good ones—and I just don't know that I want to attempt to do the type of work needed to make this book as great as I want it to be.
Another project is a cookbook. I've got the draft form done, but I think some of the photos need to be reworked.
And then there are my stories. One a YA novel, the other...I'm not sure. They are both in the preliminary stages, and I think they will be my next tasks-at-hand. Stay tuned! Hopefully it won't be as long between posts next time!
