New Kindle Version and Radio Interview

Just a quick update with the latest news while I'm finishing up "The Tale of Time Warp Tuesday."

After a lot of very, very, very hard work (thanks, Kecia!) and a lot of mis-information (frankly, just do the opposite of any directions you manage to dig up), the Kindle version of The Kids' (and parents', too!) Book of Good Sportsmanship is now available at Amazon.  Yay! Phew!

(I hope my notes are clear enough for the next time I try to load something with illustrations on Kindle. Text manuscripts like Zephram, while still time consuming, are pretty straightforward compared to what I had to go through with Good Sport.)

Not much time to relax after that, though.   I'm scheduled for a radio interview tonight with "Connecting Women."  I will be talking about "It's Time for Good Manners!"  Unfortunately, I have a cold, so I'll let you know how that goes. 

I've also been scouting to line up book reviewers for "The Tale of Time Warp Tuesday."  If you're interested in reviewing it or know of someone who would, please don't hesitate to contact me.  I would be glad to share it with you.

Until next post, Happy Reading!


P.S.  I almost forgot:  Check out the Hangman Game on the Games Tab.  I'm experimenting with it. What do you think?  I have a couple of others to add except that I have to either a) make the game template smaller or b) reformat my blog so the games fit better.  Six one, half a dozen another  except that I have no technical expertise, so it takes me much longer to figure things out.  Wish me luck.  And try your luck on Hangman when you get a chance.

Thursday, March 3, 2011 news and other updates

Dear Bookworms,

Just wanted to give you a quick update on what's been happening at Good Manners Kids Stuff Press.

We have been working very hard on a Kindle version of The Kids' (and parents', too!) Book of Good Sportsmanship.  It has illustrations so it meant a complete redesign.  I hope to let you know that we've made it available within the next week or two.

Very exciting news:  I was contacted to become a Kids and Manners "Knowledge Nest" expert on, a wonderful new website for parents.  You can see the link over to the right.  Check it out at your earliest convenience - it has lots of cool stuff and fantastic information that you will enjoy.

I've been researching more book reviewers and hope to get review copies out soon for The  Tale of Time Warp Tuesday, the second Zephram tale that is due out late this spring.

Last, I have an illustrator on board who is going to help me with the cover for a new series that I will be launching in the fall. 

Happy Reading! I, personally, have to avoid books until I get some of these projects finished -- my reward will be the new Rick Riordan release coming up in May!
