KIDS KORNER by CILLYart4U - AUG 2017 statement photo #1

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:

http://cillyart4u.wixsite.com/cillyart4u/kidskorner

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!

 

Payson Book Festival...July 2017

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)!

 

TWIN TAILS paperbook series (books one & two)...

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:

twintailsbycillyart4u@gmail.com

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!

WHAZZUP, CILLYart? TWIN TAILS of Mason Beach books again available for children & family reading enjoyment!

TTofMB front cover jpg file...adj by Goran on 5-26-17

WOO HOO!!! It is official…AGAIN!!! TWIN TAILS of Mason Beach has just been republished by BRINDY BOOKS of CILLYart4U and is available once more on amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, and the book market. Request it at your local libraries and favorite bookstores today!

In paperback & kindle on amazon.com:

https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=cillyart

Also in nook book (ePub) and soon to be available in paperback on barnesandnoble.com:

https://www.barnesandnoble.com/s/cillyart?_requestid=1302698

A few weeks ago, when TWIN TAILS of Mason Beach was first republished as a paperbook and an e-book (Kindle, Nook Book, ePub) around the first of June, we were soon made aware that the paperback book story illustrations were being printed in ghastly quality and did not match up to the high quality of the book proofs we had nor the e-book quality. So we had to send the paperback book files back into revision to get the printing house to produced these charming story illustrations in the high quality they deserve!  Whew!  As of yesterday, the new paperback book proof came through showing the result is what we had hoped for and so the print/distribution houses have permission once again to print these books for me and any of you, bookstores, and libraries too! If you  have a fairytale or mermaid fan in your home, family, classroom, school or organization…you will enjoy reading the magical adventures in this middle-grade novel, TWIN TAILS of Mason Beach! Enjoy our book trailers for this book by clicking on the video links below:

STAY TUNED however…as TWIN TAILS Book Two, TWIN TAILS: Song of The Siren will soon be republished as well, hopefully this summer of 2017! Yes, there is a book 2 in this magical series for children & families.  It was first published and launched in Fall 2016, but Rook Publishing closed their doors right after Christmas of 2016 (we surely do miss these folks as our publishing partners), and so we decided to republish both books 1 & 2 of the TWIN TAILS Series under BRINDY BOOKS, as a CILLYart4U imprint of reading and learning!  Please enjoy our new book trailer posted below of TWIN TAILS: Song of The Siren:

 

FYI: Book 3 of our TWIN TAILS Series, with even more magical twin mermaid adventures, will be swimming your way sometime in 2018!  Keep up on the latest of this enterprise and other CILLYart4U and TWIN TAILS happenings right here on our website (cillyart4u.wix.com/cillyart4u), my web-site author-illustrator blog, WHAZZUP, CILLYart? and on our facebook pages, CILLYart4U and TWIN TAILS by CILLYart4U!  We look forward to seeing you there! 

Can you believe that June 2017 is over half-way over! If you haven’t had a chance to pop into our CILLYart4Us KIDS KORNER for this month, check it out for some early summer fun for children, families and young students (ages 3-12+ years)! To get to our KIDS KORNER web-page, click here:
