An Inspirational Book

I'd like to tell everybody about a poetry book I stumbled upon yesterday that I think is absolutely wonderful. It is titled "Broken Places" by Natalina Russo. Natalina, a native of Italy, began writing poetry at the young age of 12 and her first poem she ever wrote was so deep and intense, it gave me goosebumps. Her book is absolutely beautiful. Her poetry is inspiring and heartfelt.

Marketing and Networking

Favorite Book
Jake the Snake and the Stupid Time-Out Chair and A Stinky Surprise for Jake the Snake
About Me:
I am the author of Jake the Snake and the Stupid Time-Out Chair, so of course it's my favorite :) Besides writing, I love to cook, read, run, ski, spend time with my kids, hang out in the sunshine, shop for shoes and write some more! My debut children's book "Jake the Snake" is released May 9, 2009. I also have a picture book in the works, another Jake the Snake book that I am diligently working on, and a middle grade novel that I recently submitted to Scholastic with the hopes of hearing good news :) Besides writing children's books, I am also a freelance writer for magazines and my works have been published in Fandangle, Fun For Kidz, Kid Zone, Stories For Children, Stories that Lift and Story Station. I am currently revising a story for Children's Digest. Please check out my website www.booksbyshelly.com to learn even more about me and to read excerpts from my book!

Children's Author Donna Thomas

On Saturday July 25th, I had the great pleasure of doing a book signing along with children's author Donna Thomas. Donna wrote the book "Kevin's Sleepytime Adventure." It is published by Mirror and is a great bedtime story for parents to read to their children!



If you haven't checked out this book, please do so. It is a really cute story and the illustrations are brilliantly done. Speaking as an experienced mom of 4 book-loving kids, "Kevin's Sleepytime Adventure" is a story that… Continue

On The Road Again...

Summer weather here in the Laurel Highlands of PA has been one gigantic piece of dog doo doo. I'd much rather describe it as mid October weather. Usually by this time of year, I have a nice golden tan from sunbathing by the pool everyday while my kids splash me with water and my electric bill is through the roof from having the A/C pumped up to maximum cooling level. This year, however, I think I can only count the number of times I've been to the pool on one hand; my skin is pale--not pastey… Continue

Hi Shelly, would you please look at http://bookblogs.ning.com/group/childrensbooks/forum/topics/looking-for-bloggers-to-host

Do you write children’s books reviews and interesting things in the children’s world of books? If so, Story Time For Me is a really cool kids website for animated storybooks. I see you write for a number of publications, this would be a great article since this is new technology and becoming very popular.

If you have kids 8 or under I would be happy to give you some free books as well to try out.
