I have launched a new direction for my writing recently. I have been writing a book for my grandson, Christian, every year for his birthday since he was born. [That’s 12 books so far!] Each one is personal and focuses on what his interests are at the time. We are now into chapter books. The one I wrote for his 11th birthday has taken off into my series, The Stonebridge Ghost Tales. Who knew that what I was doing out of love for my grandson would grow into a three book series and become one of my best writings yet? THE GHOSTS OF STONY MANOR (Book III in the series) was released the last week of April 2015 is for sale now in ebook and in print.
I had several orders for my One-of-a Kind-Books at a local holiday craft show before Christmas. They are excellent gifts for children for either birthdays or Christmas or just as an “I Love You.” I do not insert the child’s name into a pre-written story. I gather details from you about the child such as their name, friends, favorite things, places, colors, pets, and foods. Then I create a personal story just for them using all the information I have collected to give them a personal story all about them. They will love reading a story about their favorite things and seeing their name in print.
If you are interested in having a personal book written just for your child, grandchild, or friend, please contact me. I will send you a price list and an information form. [Prices depend on the type of book desired. Costs are between $12-$20.] I write picture books for younger children and chapter books for older 8-12 year olds. I have even written a book for a 16 year-old.
I look forward to creating a special book for your special child!
