APRIL 18, 2016 – Another fun meet -n- greet CILLYart4U author event this past Saturday at a second Mesa Public Library in Mesa, AZ (the Dobson Ranch Branch) left me with lots more enchanting entries to our CILLYart4U APRIL 2016 Contest for children! Oh, boy…is it ever fun to see the creative ideas and thoughts each child comes up with for their entry! I’m going to find it challenging to select my winners indeed, but this is so much fun for me…watching young readers use their own imaginations at a reading/writing challenge! One more author event this month…this one will be held at:
SAT, April 30th from 1 – 3 PM @ Red Mountain Library – 635 N. Power RD, Mesa, AZ 85205. Come visit with me in the children’s library room! (480) 644-3100
Again, I will have my books on display and would love to meet you, but there is also that fun contest activity for your children to do and enter for the chance to win some CILLYart4U prizes! We sure hope to see you there!
Now if you are unable to make the above author event, remember to have your child/children enter online as well! That same CILLYart4U APRIL 2016 Contest for children ages 4 – 12, can also be entered by sending your child’s entry to me via firstname.lastname@example.org or the contest page of this website! Scan or take a photo or your child’s entry and email it to me by midnight on April 30th for the opportunity to win a free TWIN TAILS of Mason Beach children’s chapter book and other potential thematic prizes! I’m looking for winners to send my contest prizes to the first week or two of May. Read the contest details right here on this website on our contest page below:
I’m waiting to receive your child’s entry so please join in the fun of this children’s contest today!
Now back to the business of preparing for the release of TWIN TAILS Book 2 this fall, I have again pulled out my story illustrations to finish tweaking them…and now pondering the book cover illustration for my publisher. Along with this, I’m toying with several other fun designs for zazzle.com and vida.com…so stay tuned for this.
In tiny bits of free time, I’m doing a beta-reading project for a new children’s book by author, Jessie L. Best… (read all of this blog Whazzup, CILLYart? blog post on:)
