Book Review

I am very happy about this positive book review. The funny thing is I didn't even knwo it was there! I randomly googled Janeylou -- which is the name of my main character in Ainsworth! It was quite a shock!

Blog Novel

I'm having a lot of fun, and finally getting back to doing some creative writing. I'm doing it as a blog novel. It's just for fun. I've been twittering it and putting it on places like stumbleupon to get readers to take a look at my writing style. Hopefully somebody out there will like it, and I've put a link on there for people to click on if they want to purchase a copy of my book Ainsworth. I wonder if anyone else has done this sort of blogging.

Sample Chapter

I know it is important to include a sample chapter from your book. After all who wants to buy a novel from an unknown author without even at least being able to look inside to see if you like the writing. I haven't figured out how to add sample chapters to my Amazon listing of Ainsworth,

but at least I have added a sample chapter to my webste at… Continue

Gone With the Wind

I set up a book signing in Florida. Well, actually I didn't set it up. I have this funny childhood friend and he set it up. He went to a lot of trouble for me, so I drove for four days with my family to go and set up a puppet show/chess lesson using lots of animal chess openings for the kids in Orlando. My husband put on a gorilla suit. I know, I know, it was worth it because we sold five books. That's five! It would have been six had the Orlando Public Library purchased a copy.

But… Continue

Hi Anthea,

Congratulations on your books. I'll have to check out "How To Play Chess Like An Animal." It looks like a great present. I really like how you designed the website. I also just wanted to mention to you a website I built called It's for authors to promote their book. You do so by posting your book's first chapter, giving readers a peek into your book. The site is free and the list of books is growing, so please check it out. :) BTW, good luck with your books!

p.s. You can also check out this blog post on the Already Published Ning Network, I explain how to post your book. You can also learn more about the website there.

I am sending this out to BMN members who specialize in any aspect of children's book publishing, whether your an author, artist, publisher, or offer some other valued skill needed in the creation of children's books.

I invite you to follow my blogs and comment, critique, and network with me as friends (so I can follow your work too).

I have found ning in general to be the best marketing and reference tool compared to any advertising, networking, or leads I have ever used -- free or paid for. And all it's costs is our time.

Many of you are already in my friend network, and thank you for sharing your work with me. For those of you reading, this that I have not introduced myself too, I would like to now, and ask we be friends so I can follow your craft as well.

We all need to support each others work through this economic distress, no stimulus or bail out is going to help us.

In my latest blog post, you will also see three other ning networks that I have created. One for children's book professionals/enthusiasts, one for southern/Tennessee writers, artists, etc., and one for WillowRaven clients (present, past, or future) or simply just fans of my work. I invite you to join the appropriate ones for you as well.

Hope to see you at my blog,

Aidana WillowRaven

Welcome, Anthea! Glad you could join us.

I like your pacing for promoting your books. Sometimes, I let myself have too much free rein and get swamped.
