Happy August 2017, everyone! Just to let you know that our CILLYart4U’s KIDS KORNER – August 2017 link is now up for all to enjoy at:
As always, fun reading tips in books for children and families, thematic activities, arts & crafts and my original coloring pages are shared. The theme this month is BACK TO SCHOOL, since many school districts are preparing around us to begin their 2017-2018 school year, some as soon as this week! Most school districts, charter and private schools here in Arizona have modified year-round academic schedules, which shorten our summers, but do allow a week or two for fall and spring breaks for additional family time. We hope you find the couple of back-to-school activities, arts & crafts, and coloring pages enjoyable as you prepare to begin your new year of school learning!
On Saturday, July 22nd, we got to escape the heat of the valley of the sun/Phoenix Metro area, into the mountains for a few hours to delight in cooler weather and the Payson Book Festival…”where Arizona authors and readers come together!” We truly enjoyed mingling with other Arizona authors and avid readers of all sorts of books! Of course, I had to purchase a few new children’s books which truly tempted me. I can hardly wait to read them and share my input of these books with you here and on CILLYart4U’s KIDS KORNER beginning next month (SEPT 2017)!
Yes, our TWIN TAILS Re-launch Events are still on hold while we strive to patiently await final editing and re-publication of Book 2, TWIN TAILS: Song of The Siren. We will let you know as soon as possible via our website, facebook pages and other social media (linkedin.com, pinterest.com, twitter.com). In the meantime, we are prepping for the publication and release of a TWIN TAILS of Mason Beach – The Coloring Book. It will have most of the book’s illustrations in line drawings for enjoyment in coloring and our classic, fun, mermaid craft at the end of the book for you to create! We are waiting for the final techy-touch-ups to be done on the cover design for this coloring book and for order and receipt of its book proof to get it published too. We hope it will bring our TWIN TAILS readers & fans many fun hours of coloring, imagining and creating too! Below is a sneak peak at the coloring book’s cover:
If you are a MER-fan and love to color, you will enjoy releasing your artistic coloring skills to bring these pages to life, according to your creativity, as you read its basic storyline! Watch for news of its publication & release soon! Please feel free to send me a photo or scan of your coloring…I’d love to see your artistic interpretations of my TWIN TAILS of Mason Beach line story illustrations! You can send these via email to:
Once the work of the republication & relaunching of Books 1 & 2 are completed, our author-illustrator visits to libraries, schools, and youth groups will begin again…and so will my work on tweaking, editing and illustrating TWIN TAILS Book 3! We have a target release date for sometime in 2018, so stay tuned for sneak peeks into this new TWIN TAILS magical adventure over the next year!
Until next time…
HAPPY READING, IMAGINING & CREATING!
