Well loyal readers, I’ve taken the plunge and opened up not one, but two ETSY shops; one to sell my BOOKS and one for my much loved SOFT TOYS.

I’m busy working on a little SOFTIE Elf and a SOFTIE Santa to make available in time for the holidays.

So if you’d like something made for someone special, please make sure you order before 15th November to get your purchases in time for Christmas.

I’ve updated my Books for Sale and offer two poetry chapbooks and a children’s story:

12LoveBooks (9)w  12RailTalesCoverPrintW  12Oct8SantaSwimHARDCover (2)e

& created a new page full of adorable Softies – unique gifts for special people: Soft Toys for Sale.

“I do remember being affected by words from a teacher who sat at my college’s French table. She said, basically (and in French) “being shy is worrying too much about what other people think of you. Shyness is a form of self-absorption.” It wasn’t pleasant to hear, because I am a shy person. Her view put a whole new spin on my feelings. It did a lot to force me out of my shyness.”

Paul O. Zelinsky has illustrated thirty-odd books for children, written some of them, and been awarded numerous honors, including the Caldecott Medal for Rapunzel and three Caldecott Honors.  

(Quoted from SCWBI Insight July 2015)

The last couple of hours have been spent enjoying my favorite songs playlist on YouTube (and more) and adding them to my Pinterest board called ‘Ear Pieces’.

Previously it was favorite ‘Tummy Treats (must be something to do with lunchtime) and before that updating my ‘Poetic People’ and ‘Children’s Book Writing’ boards.

It’s very seductive!
