Hello out there in the world of Children's Books!

First, Sally the Travelin' Saddle, my new picture book, is available for Pre Order. 

Sally has been traveling around taking selfies in front of businesses, schools and with real people before she arrives at her destination on September 11. She has three school readings to attend before then, also.

When Sally told the old mare she wanted to travel, she wasn't playing around! See her selfies here or here.

People love taking selfies with Sally! And she is more than happy to leave them a "Sally was Here" business card with all of her information so they can visit her page and see their pictures!

Second, as I am so involved with schools and doing free school presentations (we all know how much teachers spend on their classrooms and how much educational budgets have been cut), I wanted to let you all know about a new free for education program I recently started to get the "hook of books" in front of school children. By next year, I hope to have the program filled up and ready for student use. Five authors have already enrolled a book and I am adding their content now.

Between now and then, I am spreading the word to local teachers, friends and everyone Sally comes in contact with (I attend many schools and book festivals throughout the year), as well as planning a full blown marketing program for the start of the 2016 school year.

As children's book authors, we know how difficult it can be to reach our market, because we have to get through the grown-ups to the children, just like those cheesy holiday commercials do!  I remember watching those commercials every year and dreaming of getting that (Easy Bake Oven, here) for the holidays! If you have a book for age 5-17 and are interested in taking a look at the program, message me. I'll send you the link.

Even if your book is unpublished at this time, you can enroll it and start the school marketing for it!

My blog is in a state of re-branding right now, but you can contact me through my page here. Happy writing, all!

So many children's picture books are written from the mom's perspective, but one dad, Kevin DeFilippis, wrote one from his viewpoint to show the bonding from dad to baby. His story is the topic of my latest blog post. Read his insights on family and writing at

Funny kids picture book FREE for review:

Martian Mustache Mischief


Mars needs Ketchup! And they’re coming to take ours!

Your mission (if you choose to accept) is to join the fight to save earth’s most precious resource. But be warned, the Martians are trickier than they look – even if they do look like tiny mustaches! Mustache Mischief

March House Books is now closed but March of Time Books rides on. I'm looking for guest bloggers with an interest in vintage children's books or a collection of books/ephemera. If you have a new book you would like to blog about and can tie your post in with something from your childhood so much the better. For ideas see

This magical, delightful children's series is about BetterNot, a mysterious character who arrives in a flash to aid parents by helping their children learn fun, yet valuable lessons about morals and manners such as fairness, honesty, and kindness. It is brought to life with unique, colorful, engaging illustrations.
This first story is BetterNot! And the Tale of Bratsville - Teaching Morals and Manners. It’s about a town filled with very naughty children like Larry Liar, Rebecca Robber and Lilly Loudmouth. As the parents told their children again and again what they better not do, the magical creature named BetterNot rose from his magical, bubbling purple swamp to come to their aid. He swooped into town to teach each child a fun yet valuable lesson in a way that fit each child's poor behavior.  
Children everywhere need to obey their parents. If they do not, BetterNot might come to your town, too! Look for future books in this series.
