Fill The Shelves!

Hello gentle readers! I have some important news! Fill The Shelves is an organization that helps schools in need of books for their libraries. Fill those empty library shelves with books!

I remember when I was a small child my mother read to me every day. As we got older she took us to the library every week to check out books and we were also involved in a reading program called The Reading Tree.

I am now a writer and I love to read, thanks to my mother's efforts so this is important to me. Books are extremely important sources of information for an educated populace. So, if you can find a little change to help these kids at these schools by buying a book or two to help fill their library shelves I am sure the teachers and librarians - and the kids - would greatly appreciate it! You can go to the site and buy a book for a school in need here! I bought Tales From The Odyssey, Part 2 By Mary Pope Osborne

Happy reading!

More New Hobbit Posters

Another poster I really love:

A bit on the blurry side but very reminiscent of one of the posters for the Return of the King, with Aragorn and his sword -a very cool one I must say. Nice.

Hobbit Posters

The new The Hobbit posters look great. I've already posted the one with Bilbo looking out his front door onto a bucolic land and the mountains beyond.  Here's another one I really like!

So iconic!

First Chapter Coming Next Weekend!

Things are coming along with the story. I'm happy with how things are turning out. I plan to put up the first chapter in the story next weekend so look for it then. Please be aware that what you are seeing when I post chapters of stories here (or my other blogs) that you are seeing either a second or third draft. When the entire book is published, the final product, it may be a little different than you remembered.

Until then, enjoy the waning of summer!
