Saltwater Taffy Hits the Road with Author Visits
Saltwater Taffy hits the road with author visits to help spread child literacy across the country. As a children’s book author, it appears that our children’s book tour and author visits with Saltwater Taffy are never ending. Yes, my friends, this is a good thing. Not only does it keep Saltwater Taffy fresh in the eyes of educators, parents and children, but it also allows me to continue to be an advocate for child literacy across the country.
On November 15th, I’m taking the family to Miami, Florida where we will be awarded the Reader’s Favorite GOLD MEDAL book award at the Miami Book Fair International. Now, it would be easy to fly across the country and view this as a mini-vacation in Miami with my family, but as an independent publisher, I am always looking for new venues to promote child literacy. It also gives me a chance to inspire young minds and help them ignore thoughts of fear, doubt and worry.
This is why, on Friday, November 16, 2012, I have an author visit & assembly at Water’s Edge Elementary in Boca Rotan, Florida. Sure, I have to rent a car and drive over an hour down to Boca, but why not? As authors, we need to be willing to travel the extra mile and do whatever it takes to raise awareness around our work.
On December 6, 2012, the Literary Festival at Seven Arrows Elementary in Pacific Palisades, California has scheduled a Saltwater Taffy visit for the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade author visit. The Literary Festival is held every year, and we are excited be included in this years event.
On March 27, 2013, I will participate in the 5th Annual Lassen County Literary Jam in Susanville, California. The Lassen County School District has booked me into 3 different elementary schools as well as a keynote presenter at the Awards Ceremony.
If your school would like a Saltwater Taffy visit, please do not hesitate to let us know. Always remember, each moment is another adventure waiting to happen! See you at the book store!
