The Adventures of Rosy Posy Papillion ~ Friendship
The story is delightful and children will love all the characters featured in the story. The illustrations simply make the concept; the message, scenes, and characters are brought to life, enabling children to connect well with the story. The friendship song is adorable and can be used to sing when with friends. It is a good bedtime storybook and the concept makes it perfect for read aloud and storytelling sessions in classrooms. Children need more stories like this so that they learn how to make new friends. I liked all the characters in the story as they are all lovable and cute. Who is your favorite character in the story? Is it Rosy Posy, Raoul, Abu, Jamal, Circe, Ailani, or Yukiko? …read more.5star-shiny-webperf8.500x8.500.indd

 Our 4 legged friends need love too
You are truly a multitasker. It’s a wonder that you have time to write at all. What I found most interesting was that you work with a “legitimate” publisher. Probably through your nonfiction writing about health issues, you were picked up by a publisher and therefore, had a way to begin publishing fiction. The whole tenor and tone of this article is a promotional piece by a publisher written in the third person and perhaps, not even by you.

I always believe in the cliché, “cream rises to the top.” The avenues to publishing and presenting work to the public is changing rapidly. Like always, with luck and exposure, the best will eventually shine.

You have a niche that appeals to two avid groups: parents buying children’s books and dog lovers. perf8.500x8.500.indd
