Tales & Legends for Reluctant Readers and the 78th Kid Lit Blog Hop

A few months back (May 2016), I wrote a post about author branding and how I was addressing that in the coming months. Well, it is now time to introduce you to my new author branding:

Tales & Legends for Reluctant Readers

And the first re-release in this series : 

Young Knights of the Round Table:
The King's Ransom

I will always be, first and foremost, an educator, and my desire has, and will be, to entice young readers to read and read more. This was my motivation to start writing my stories and continues to be my inspiration.

I want to thank Kathy at Bublish for taking on the distribution of my stories. There's plenty of good news yet to come from this union as Kathy and I work on connecting with schools, librarians, teachers, and students.

And, in case you're wondering, Christopher Berge of Berge Design did the fabulous cover for Young Knights and will do all of my future covers.

Young Knights of the Round Table: The King's Ransom is now available on Amazon.

And Now,

We want to welcome you to the 78th Kid Lit Blog Hop. On this Hop, Carpinello's Writing Pages interviews

It's back to school time! Some kids are already in school, some are going soon. The kids will be bringing home great books from their libraries. How about sharing some of those on our monthly hop or for that matter, any great kid's literature.

This month we welcome a new co-host Bruce from the Bookshelf Gargoyle! We welcome you aboard and so glad you are here with us!

This exciting, monthly hop, is where we develop an engaged group of people who love everything that has to do with children's literature. Everyone is welcome to join us: bloggers, authors, publicist, and publishers!

So for our hop, please make sure that your posts are related to Children’s literature only and add it to the linky. (Please make sure to add your direct post only) If you are an author, feel free just to link to your blog.

Once you are done, then hop around to visit others. Please follow the co-host and visit at least the one-two people above your link. Please leave a comment when you do visit, we all like those.
