There's good summer news popping up everywhere!
Author Jessica Nelson's self published ebook, Remember Love, was just released. You might recall Love on the Range, her historical debut novel, was published by Love Inspired last year. (It was very good, btw.) Congratulations, Jessica! Looking forward to reading the latest. :)
Young Adult novelist Michelle Isenhoff's mission is to write quality reading material for tweens and young adults. This is a cause I applaud and embrace, for I recall how difficult it was to find good books for my kids at that age. I love her philosophy. See if you agree with her thoughts:
"I write for kids. In my books, you can expect adventure and substance, but I'll always respect the innocence of our children."
Yes and amen to that! Her latest project sounds like a winner too. Here are the details:
Emblazon is a blog written by a collection of indie and traditionally published authors who care about producing high quality stories for kids. We have a particular focus on ages 11 to 14. We call them Tweens. The purpose of Emblazon is to celebrate tween literature. We want to draw attention to this fabulous genre, interact with other enthusiasts whether child or adult, and encourage new writers. Emblazon launches its first post on July 10. Click here for details.
Michelle and the others would be pleased if you'd like to join them or help spread the word for this fabulous new adventure.
What fun things are happening at your place this summer? Writing, writing, and more writing is happening here at my desk as my book Homeschool Co-ops 101, published by Helping Hands Press, is scheduled for release on August 15.
How is your summer going so far? Does the warm weather hinder or inspire your writing?
Have a great week,
