How do you ensure kids are on their best behavior at a wedding reception? Sara Shacter has just the answer. “It’s a humorous book of wedding etiquette,” she tells I Do Radio host Angela Chester of her new children’s tale, Heading to the Wedding. “The story revolves around Patrick and his little sister Evie, who are invited to a wedding. But their parents are worried about how it’s going to go, so they have a practice wedding at home. And Evie marries a Dracula action figure, while a stuffed T-Rex presides over the ceremony. Along the way, they learn all the do’s and don’t’s of being a wedding guest. So when they attend the real wedding, it’s of course a smashing success. What I was shooting for is something that was completely non-denomenational. And kids really want to be involved in grown-up events, but we have to tell them what’s expected.”

Bonding Thru Books Festival, a totally online literary event, was created to start a national conversation about what we want our literary legacy to be. Each night, 8-10pm EST we will discuss how we can use the leaders, icons and storytellers of today, to create body of works that will assist emerging writers and authors in being more responsible with their work and positions.
Everyone has a story! But, does that story have a purpose? What will the people in your life say about you after you are gone? What does your story hold for future generations? Let's create a life, a story, a journey that others will want to emulate! You are important to this community and we want to hear from you too.
PURPOSE OF BONDING THRU BOOKS - Each year thousands of people - educators, concerned parents, community leaders, authors, poets and publishers - devote their time and resources to presenting the reader with great books! However, too many outstanding books do not get the attention and reader support that they deserve. We want to help with this state of affairs, so we encourage readers to purchase books to give as gifts 365 days a year.

Blaize Nolynne took that literally when her dreams came into play after she graduated high school. She took her dreams of being an author to heart where she furthered her studies at the Institute of Children’s Literature, where she graduated at the top. The beginning of her career she was under penname for children’s literature, C. Araya Delvesuvio. Her first book out was ‘Sending a Message to Grandpa’ by August of 2009, which was a story about a young girl who dealt with her grandfather’s death in a very unique way. She admitted that the story was close to home, since she was very close to her Great Grandfather and was quite young when he passed.
By the end of 2012 her sequel, District One Stand By: On the Bleeding Edge of Change, was out as well as a book about terminal cancer. At the age of 24, Blaize reached for different heights in her career that she only thought were dreams in the beginning. She realized that hard work and determination had made her dreams a reality. Since the beginning of her career she has published nine books, in which ALL are now being published by publishing houses.
“District One Stand By:’ series is based upon my hometown, Standish, Maine. ‘The Captain’s Last Year, One Year to Live: Fighting the Flame and Cancer’ is based in Maine as well. There is something special about Maine that brings out my inspiration to write.” She admitted.
Proceeds of her book : ‘The Captain's Last Year: One Year to Live, Fighting the Flame and Cancer ‘ she is donating not just to cancer research, but to also help a local Maine Fire Chief, Jeff Douglass of Baldwin, Maine who is struggling with terminal cancer. She is putting part of the proceeds for his treatments.
