When I was growing up as a child it was said often children should be seen but not heard.
That phrase stuck in my head forever and now it's 2017 things for sure have changed. Children now I feel are protected they are heard. They do have rights to a degree in which they are protected from being beaten which thank God they are. What still remains is the violence they watch on TV in cartoons and in books. We live now in more violence then I have ever seen and that is why I feel I am on a mission for children and their parents to read about Specky and his Magical Spin-Oculars.
There are colorful characters that the children love at the age of 2 and the messages that each book will carry out pertains to how children deal with their problems of bullying, sharing, kindness, listening to Mommy and Daddy and it's a fun way of learning in the year of 2017. I feel now is the time..... if I brought this book out 30 years ago it would have been hard to understand.
That is why I feel everything in life is timing.
I have been wondering why most parents don't teach their children not to use the word hate???? Maybe they do and I am not aware of that. I have over 12 thousand followers and I need to ask them about that. Anyway we all teach or have thought our children not to curse that was or is a big NO NO. But why not Hate. It's powerful and not only that hate stirs you up inside. So I feel that I don't like is a much better for children and maybe I will put that in a book because I don't like the world hate and if I catch myself I lean towards I don't like. The world is so full of hate to the likes I have ever seen so it has to be so confusing for a child growing up and seeing the hate and hearing about hate. Just my thoughts. If anyone out there wants to give me feed back on the word hate for children I really wanna here what you have to say. I say HATE GO AWAY from our children's language.
On another note I signed books today and I made a 2 year old so happy which blow my mind because I didn't think a 2 year old would have the patience but he loved the character's. I can't wait for all the children to have this book they love it and it brings me great joy to see their reaction to my first book. My book will be in some of the selected stores in Boca yea. I think that's amazing it just came out 🙂 SPECKY AND HIS MAGICAL SPIN-OCULARS ARE GOING TO SCHOOL ON FRIDAY MORNING TO PLAN OUT THEIR VISIT TO THE CHILDREN #AWESOME
Oh very important message for parents....... YOUR CHILD IS THE BOSS OF NOTHING............Let's talk about that one
So much to say so I guess I will start off saying sometimes I just don't get it LOL.
I called up Boca Raton magazine they have been around a very long time and my daughter's as young adults were in there. So I figured here I am a new Author of a book with a learning concept plus character's to likes no one as ever seen and children really love my book they carry it around. I speak to the editorial department and I tell her what I just basically wrote just now and the first question did I self publish? YES YES and I am fresh out of the gate and did not even send this out to a publishing company because I don't want to right now.
We are not interested or we can't do a story on you because you are self published What What. Ok I said to her I figured I would call the magazine being I am launching here in Boca Raton.
Maybe I just don't get it yet why their seems to be a stigma. Self publishing is so big now and so many great avenues are open.
RULES DON'T APPLY TO ME.........SO I GUESS I NEED A PAIR OF SPIN-OCULARS!!!!!!!
As I was talking to myself this morning I decided to blog what makes this book different and what makes me different 🙂
Specky and His Magcal Spin-Oculars is sooooooooo different from any children's book out there and here's why:
This world of character' that I have created never existed before until now. Some are one big Spin-Ocular which by the way is a name I created for the world which now is in my book. Most of my let's call them my family because that is how I see them have headstalks that serve as their arms 🙂 Each of my family have their own story....... they all live somewhere..... eat something different each one is unique. It's a world of innocence just like a child!!!
All the villains are funny in my book. It has a learning message and no violence when it comes to stopping Specky on his mission. Finally we all grow up with violent fairy tales.............................. and I never could understand why.
My book sends out a message to each child without telling them what to do..... it explains the message and it is seen by the drawing and each book will have a different message because it's all part of growing up.
There was not enough room to explain on the book site so I will just have to get on TV and explain and hope the world reads what I just wrote. LOL
I can't wait to introduce each character in my next book so everyone can get to know them Wooty Woo.
What make me different I asked myself this morning my answer:
No rules apply 🙂
Working since this morning. I just finished writing to the Ellen Show and I hope it went to the right place because I am really not good at this stuff. I am great on writing a story creating characters shopping LOL.

Happy and Healthy New Year to anyone reading my blog. My book is out on Amazon and when I saw it I had to go back 50 times and look again. LOL My grandson Alec came over yesterday he is the cutest well they are all the best love them all so much. Alec will be turning 3 this month and he saw my book and loved the character's. Mommy ordered one and Lauren will be reading it to him this week so I can't wait for that.
Alec and Grandpa Marty threw rocks in the lake and they both had a blast:)
I am happy I figured out how to get on here now so I will see you later
WOW My proof came yesterday and I have been so excited. I really can't believe that after all these years I am holding in my hand something that I created from nothing. I am looking forward to reading my story to children, my grandchildren, going to their school and so many other schools and seeing their expression 🙂
I am looking forward to my book signing and book launch, really looking forward to it all. This is going to be a wonderful New Year. I am bringing it in with my new husband it's our first New Year being married and now my new book......WOOTY WOO
Trying to figure out how to lay this out right and this is not it. I wrote something the other day but it was gone so let me say my Proof of my book came and the shading is wrong and the first page is not right so I am going to be held up a few weeks because my illustrator is away. I am sure she will be disappointed also. In the meantime I am focusing on the different ways I want to market my book and where I want to start which is great. If anyone is reading this please give me a shout out would love to here from you. Once my book is out I well be blogging daily. Woot Woo
