Christmas is Coming….

Books make great gifts

It seems I can’t get on Facebook lately without someone posting a countdown to the number of days or weeks until Christmas. I always take a week off that as it tells me how long it is until Mr Z turns 11!

Along with the countdown posts, there are posts about ways to save money for Christmas and reminders about starting Christmas shopping early.

Give a kid (or a library) a book

Give a kid a book to read

If you’ve been looking at my crowdfunding campaign, you’ll see that there are options to get a book for yourself and a book for a friend.

The current tally of books to be donated is 6, and I would love this to grow. [Read more...]

Kids involvement in Swallow Me, NOW!

Kids have helped along the way

I first wrote Swallow Me, NOW! during the Chapter Book Challenge in 2013 and kids have been involved in the story every step of the way.

During the challenge itself, I spent my evenings writing. My goal was to write a chapter a day until the story was finished. Every morning my kids would wake up and ask me what I had written the night before. They also wanted to read what I’d written.
