THE MOST AMAZING LETTER EVER
I just received the most amazing letter ever. As an independent children’s book author, this is the kind of letter that makes all those moments of frustration of being a ‘little fish in a big publishing pond’ worth it. This is the kind of letter that makes an author, a father, a husband, and a ‘I WILL NEVER QUIT’ publisher smile as big as the sun!
I used to say to myself that if one child believed in themselves more than they did the day before I arrived, then my trip and all the money that goes into it was worth it. To see that the message was loved by the entire school, well…these kids just made my decade!
This is the reason that I know our long journey of making Saltwater Taffy into a movie is not only a dream, but a necessity. Children need inspiration and the motivation to believe in themselves now more than ever. The fast food mentality of the world we now live in is teaching our kids to think the only things in life that matter are what kind of shoes you wear, what label of clothing you have, or what kind of car you drive makes you WHO you are. They do not. The thoughts we have about ourselves and our own opinions of ourselves make up WHO and WHAT we are.
Saltwater Taffy is dispelling the myths of fitting in and the pursuit of ‘being popular’ and inspiring young minds across the country!
Here is the most amazing letter ever!
