Go Kiley Go!

There are so, so many reasons to root for Kiley’s Purple Hat Kickstarter campaign; the creativeness and imaginative quality of the story…the handmade, authentic quality of the actual book…the diverse element and inspiring energy the story exudes, crossing cultures with the potential of sparking this sizable level of creative energy in children.

I said it before and will say it again. Creativity leads to innovation, and innovation is a commodity our future depends upon. Innovation will never go out-of-style…be a relic of the past. It will stay, perpetually, high in demand.

But all that disclosed, I’ve got some individuals and entities to thank.

To my writer-peers, mentors and friends, your support means the world to me. I’ve supported many authors unconditionally, because I love giving of my time and resources, especially when I’m giving to those in my lane, but when you turn around and throw the love right back, this act of generosity will forever mean the world to me.

I’m tipping my purple hat for Kiley’s Purple Hat tying in first place for the best Crowdfunding Campaign of the Week on CrowdSifter; featured in their Newsletter! ...All thanks to our 97 98 backers rooting for Kiley's Purple Hat through blog posts, reviews, tweets, and financial backing from around the world!

Thank you to the individuals and entities showing Kiley’s Purple Hat love on the air and in the News!

Thank you to the George Lopez Foundation that “helps provide significant community and arts resources for education.” We are truly humbled.

DJ Grandpa (host of THE crowdfunding podcast on DJ Grandpa’s Crib) we love you for hosting Kiley’s Purple Hat on the Crib. (Our segment runs from 13:03 to 23:05)

Thank you & congratulations Ronald Garner from Silence in the Library Publishing who’s pulled off a successful Kickstarter, Heroes!

And Yay! In case I didn’t share this before, Kiley's Purple Hat is Lexile Measured!

Trying not to get too personal, and mushy, throwing back much thank-you love, so if I didn’t call you out specifically, do know I know who you are. All of us over here at OSAAT Entertainment know who you are, and without mention our illustrator Nathalie Beauvois… and the author Jaxon Barnes loves you, just as we love them too.

But here’s the important thing; children are going to appreciate you, and our future too.

We value your support. We need your support. Please check out this amazing campaign and show your support.

Go Kiley Go!

Genuine Women Rock!

Funny thing about genuine women is they rarely say much when first meeting one. Oh, she’ll look me up and down, sizing me up I’m guessing, taking in most of what she thinks she sees before ever imparting any real piece of her mind. Gossip is just not her thing; mines neither, which is why when she unleashes one of them pearls of wisdom, Baby Look Out, I know this is a Woman Who Rocks!
Genuine Women are as Compassionate as Passionate

Doesn’t mean she won’t make mistakes, do wrong, be wrong, get mad and have those bad days. We all have our hard days, ugly ways. Name a human who doesn't. And still, turning the dial back upbeat, I know one-hundred-ten percent a genuine woman’s words are not cheap.

A Toast to the Writing Resolution Blog Hop Ball

I've been waiting to attend this ball all year, and now here it is…the perfect spot to slip in another Top Ten list, and call it my writing resolutions.
Before …oh boy…I get started, please know that Meg Waite-Clayton at 1stbooks is hosting the blogger ball. All the rules can be found (and followed) by clicking the icon pic in my caption, which also should be your caption as well. But before you get to clicking, here are my writing resolutions going into the New Year.

SHEWRITES Blogger's Ball #7 – YipYip HOORaY!!!

I think Meg Waite Clayton, who takes time out of her very literate busy schedule to host this ball, must really see me over here toggling this and that. Seems like it never fails, just when I'm about to drop a ball, up pops Meg hosting a ball. Of course, and please know, I don't really believe this. I already know the blogger balls come highly requested by SHEWRITERS, but can't deny that I, too, love the timing of each one thrown.
With over $#!$# projects going, not inclusive of other dependabilities begging my attention, I tried to avoid putting up the old 'Away on Vacation' notice. And rather than explain any more of that here, let me jump right into blasting this small pep of encouragement for those steeped in the writing process, and to writers everywhere.
If you're starting to hear a little whining about the time you spend writing, and blogging, to this is what I have to say. "Write on Writers." To my family, and perhaps to those who've been…
