The Fairy Tale Series - from Gail Pallotta
Mildred Colvin’s son, Jonathan, suggested his mother and each of her critique partners write a fairy tale and self-publish them.
We all agreed, saying we’d be there for each other if any of us got stuck during the process.
Mildred, who’s self-published over twenty books, spearheaded the effort. Vanessa Riley, who’s a talented designer as well as writer, volunteered to create a cover for each story.
We’re a laid-back group, so no one set rules about which fairy tales we chose or what direction we took with the retelling. We wanted and needed to make them consistent though.
First we discussed length and decided on novellas. Considering several options on how to tie them all together, we chose the location. June Foster had already started her story in a town called Fairwilde. We all agreed to put our characters there, but instead of having them in a particular town and state, we created Fairwilde Kingdom. I think this was important because it gave us a way to use more than one setting for our stories. Vanessa suggested the same size for the covers along with a title, sub-title and series name. We call each book A Fairwilde Reflection Novella.
We started writing and critiquing immediately. Working in our fantasy worlds for a year brought us lots of joy. We hope the novellas will do the same for our readers.
First out was At the Edge of a Dark Forest, a retelling of Beauty and the Beast by Connie Almony; next, Red and the Wolf, a version of Little Red Riding Hood by June Foster; third, Mirror on the Fall, an adaptation of Snow White by Mildred Colvin; fourth, Swept Away, a twist on Cinderella by Vanessa Riley and lastly Mountain of Love and Danger.
Any moment we can be painfully reminded that none of us is immune from loss.
Perhaps the worst nightmare of any parent is the loss of a child. Thankfully this happens to a comparative few parents, but all parents feel for them, and quietly wonder how we could ever deal with it. Donna Mebane(Mebbin) found a passion for writing through her battle with the loss of her daughter.
Based on a true story of love and family, grief and joy, Tomorrow Comes (Starshine Galaxy, 2014) is inspired by the sudden and unexpected death of author Donna Mebane’s own daughter, Emma. Donna breathes vitality and warmth into Emma’s character, and you’ll find yourself rooting for Emma as she learns to navigate her new world with courage,humor, and an indomitable spirit.
Tomorrow Comes is a daring coming-of-age book – the first in a new series – in which an ordinary teenager must come to terms with her own mortality, the loss of all she once knew, and an other-worldly set of rules. The results are dark and uplifting, heart-breaking and humorous, poignant and poetic.
Donna Mebane grew up wanting to be two things: a mother and a writer. She became a mom after the birth of her first child, Jason. She became a writer after the death of her youngest child, Emma She calls Tomorrow Comes a work of “reality fiction” because it captures the reality of grief that family and friends endured after Emma died at the same time that it creates an enchanting fictional world of AFTER where Emma can continue to be herself.
Green Bay, WI – Writing a book can be a challenge – that’s why people who do it stand out from the crowd. The good news is it’s not impossible. Far from it, in fact. Learning the secrets the experts use can make your dream of publishing a book a reality.
Founded by Bonnie Groessl and her husband, professional writer Mike Dauplaise, M&B Global Solutions Inc. is a coaching practice dedicated to helping holistic-minded individuals become published authors and successful entrepreneurs. Mike and Bonnie take the "overwhelm" out of the writing process, helping you complete your book and get it published for the world to see.
“We help people write quality books and get them published,” says Bonnie. “I love to help people turn their passion into a business they love. Publishing helps people build a platform toward becoming an expert in their niche.”
Indeed, while almost anyone can build a website, not everyone can publish a book. Sharing your message as a published author offers instant credibility. More importantly, your book helps build a business that generates revenue by providing content you can repurpose into products and services such as training and coaching programs.
“You can remain consistent with your message across all those platforms,” says Bonnie. “It gives you that core foundation. As you move forward, it can serve as your compass, something you can always refer to that reinforces why you’re doing what you’re doing.. Whether you’re publishing a book to leave a legacy or build a business, it’s more about helping people believe they can have the life they want.”

Parenting is really hard, but it's especially hard if you're the parent of a child with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges. There's so much advice being thrown your way, a lot of it telling you to be more firm, more consistent, and more diligent with the rewards and punishments. If all those sticker charts, time-outs, screaming matches, arguments have you feeling like a lot of parents do -- isolated, frustrated, and desperate -- well, you've found a program that can help. On this program, Dr. Ross Greene -- author of The Explosive Child and originator of the Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) approach -- helps parents understand challenging behavior and overcome many of the hurdles involved in implementing his model. It's very hard work...and this is a great opportunity to call in, ask questions, get the support you need, and or just listen to other parents or relatives who are dealing with similar real-life issues. The program airs every Monday at 11 am Eastern time from September through May. Sponsored by Dr. Greene's non-profit, Lives in the Balance (www.livesinthebalance.org).

With the advent of television shows like 'Crossing Over with John Edward' and 'Long Island Medium,' necromancy, or the practice of talking to the spirits of dead people, has become, for all intents and purposes, en vogue. Past life regression, or the practice of recollecting past lives via hypnosis for therapeutic purposes, has also crept its way into the mainstream over the past few decades. Driving the 'attraction' to such esoteric pursuits, and to what in the past may have been viewed as dangerous or abominable to the Judeo-Chrisitan tradition, is an overwhelming desire for those seeking answers and spirituality to personally experience the divine.
In this installment of the Evilkind Media Network's show on BTR, Nicodemus will present a comprehensive case with an overwhelming amount of evidence, examples and sound bytes showing that behind all of the information coming through from the other side is a monumental deception designed to alter all of humanity's understanding of life, purpose and God.
