It was a great honor to share my books at The Carnegie Museum! I love showing how science and fiction can become a source for inspiration and empowerment.
I have really enjoyed visiting elementary schools in the surrounding counties. The feedback has been very encouraging. The Media Specialist at Edgewater Elementary was extremely helpful and I could tell that she really loved her occupation! It is an amazing feeling when your passion is pared with your occupation. It just doesn’t feel like work! I really enjoyed the “questions” the children asked me! For instance, “If your book is based on your dream as a child, why is the character in the book a boy?” I have to laugh and they would too if they saw a picture of me when I was 5 to 10 years old. Everyone thought I was a boy…And at the time, I was a true Tomboy, so it never was an insult. Here a few photos of me with the children.
Hidden Wolf Books comes to you as a team/family effort. From time to time when we see things in the news or media relating to the topic our book highlights, we will do our best to report these events. Right now we are hopping along like astronauts on an uncharted journey, trying to get the word out there that our book has been released. We are learning and doing some conventional things and doing things that may not be (conventional) hoping for good results in the end. Today we sent copies of The Rocket Ship Bed Trip to the Midwest Book Review and the Kennedy Space Center. The Fountain of Youth in St. Augustine has a planetarium and is already featuring the book on the shelves of its gift shop.The book is an excellent choice for grandparents looking for a St.Valentine’s Day gift.
I don’t think there’s anyone I know who has not had a dream about flying; I think it’s one of the most exciting dreams to experience. Could you imagine it being a reality? Could you imagine this reality being heightened even more by a viewpoint from outer space. This isn’t just a dream for some; it is real for those who are brave enough to go and persistent enough to make space exploration their vocation. Check out this point of view that captures the essence of The Rocket Ship Bed Trip. Notice the satellites orbit the Earth, The starry skies, the comet at the end…don’t miss it!
