    REACHING OUT TO STUDENTS THROUGH STUDENT AUTHOR VISITS WITH DEBBIE HILBISH

    in Culture

    ENVISION THIS: Reaching out to young people to inspire them to read, write, and create.


    Debbie Hilbish is with us to share her vision, passion and mission to inspire students to read, write and create. She reaches out to as many people as possible to share what they do at Student Author Visits, Inc. (SAVI) founded by Larry James, a 70+ great grandfather, artist, writer of music and author of children’s books. Debbie became Chairperson and Secretary at SAVI after retiring from a career with the United States Post Office, publishing books of her poetry, and hosting eight-week authors’ fairs at The Reader’s Oasis book store in Quartzsite AZ.


    SAVI started because “America’s economy began to fail in 2007 and millions of citizens are still struggling, plus the fact that the income disparity gap in our country has widened every year for at least the last twenty years has brought us to the point where it’s impossible for many parents to purchase books for their children.” It is a free program provided to elementary fourth grade classes and boys and girls clubs in selected areas. At the beginning of each visit, Larry introduces himself and thanks the students for inviting him. He reads the first chapter of one of the chapter books he has written and illustrated. The children than get to listen to one of the age appropriate songs on our music cd. The question and answer segment is next. Children ask good questions like: How do you write, illustrate, or publish a book? The program usually last about an hour.  At the end of our visit each student receives a FREE SAVI PACK which consists of: 1 copy of the signed chapter book, 1 CD with 8 (eight) age appropriate songs, and a BOOKWORM BUDDY BUTTON.


     


     

  • Beautiful Butterfly Welcomes Author of Meet the Commodores Sunny Giovanni

    in Lifestyle

    In southern Dallas, Texas, Sunny Giovanni-- or "Gio" as she likes to be called-- was born on the fifth day of June in 1989. Born to a mother who was a teacher and a graduate from Texas A&M University you couldn't so much as watch a Disney movie if you hadn't read the book beforehand. Gio has had a very strong history with literature, diversifying from poetry (winning placements in oratorical contests), to thriller short stories as a way to vent her frustrations.


    The pen was handed down to her from an older sibling as a means to focus her negative energy and anger into something different but was used as a way to alter her own situations.
    As a preteen Gio witnessed how much her writing could touch someone when she left one of her prized spirals in a classroom without knowing. Two weeks after it went missing someone brought it back to her asking for more, letting the young author know that almost everyone she knew read the story, but without knowing it was her in the story she had written.
    Sunny Giovanni is an advocate for gay and transgender rights, and says: "You can't help who you are and you damn sure can't help who you love. You should be true to who are rather than to conform and live the ultimate lie and live miserably until the day you die." Credited from the poem she penned "Titanium", modeled after her novel.
    Gio is a mother of three children, the founder of Lucid Legends Publishing/ Photography, Kno Joke Entertainment, the host of "We Talk TOO Much Radio" on BlogTalk Radio and blogs on Tumblr under the name "KnoJokeGio". She is a friend to many and prides herself on making a smile out of an extremely horrible day. "It doesn't matter if you're having a bad day... a smile could make everything else seem so small. Crack a joke when someone is hurt and see how fast they cheer up. 

  • Judas Betrays Jesus and The Roman Regime Was Lucky To Get The Job For Killing

    in Religion

    In the evidence that history provides, why is it so difficult for people to identify the lie saying that a spirit-God made heaven and earth in six days--and why it can't be understood that Rome led a colonial military campaign into Israel BC 63, and  started to oppress and kill people almost forth uears Yeshua who protest taxes to ceasar. How can anyone find that story believeable, when for one the act is conquest, and the story is told by in invading criminals produced the bible and made their evil deeds the the inspired word of God,  What about Isaiah 53, can't anyone see the difference  in a fictional writing from historic account? If world is not true in what way can the criminal be true.

    in Writing

    Jennifer Snow's a traditionally published romance author who is living the dream: she's been published by more than one publisher, and she's branching out into the hot sub-genre, sports romance. In her home country of Canada, though, there's apparently some circles who still are all about "literary" fiction. Jennifer and I talk about her experience writing for more than one publisher and how those editing experiences differ. Will we see her on the indie side of publishing? We just might.

    Lord Have Murphy with Fran Shaw

    in Women

    While there may be a plethora of books on consciousness, none is quite like the new Amazon #1 bestseller, Lord Have Murphy: Waking Up in the Spiritual Marketplace. It’s a funny, sardonic commentary that’s also a brilliant entrée to a new level of consciousness unknown even to many people who have dabbled in meditation, mindfulness and even yoga.


    The book’s author Fran Shaw, Ph.D., is a longtime practitioner in a spiritual discipline and an award-winning university writing instructor. Out of her fertile mind has popped Murphy, the star narrator of this journey into this new level of awareness. And Murphy has a wry comment on EVERYTHING!


    Murphy demurs from being a teacher—no guru is he—yet his exploration of the nature of this deep new level of conscious awareness is a fun-filled, quip-induced, deeply funny, pathway to the higher self.


    As Fran notes, “We hear a lot these days about mindfulness. ‘Weapons of mass instruction are proliferating.’ How to clear the air? To trust what’s in us and that we’re finding our way to it.”


    With unrelenting humor, this book tells the tale of Murphy giving it a try, only to discover in himself an extraordinary truth: that contact with the finer energy animating us awakens us to a completely different level of being alive.


    Murphy’s satirical comments make readers laugh out loud. The book appeals to both of our natures, the everyday and the higher. For Murphy, the daily ups and downs become the necessary reminders to awaken, and “we don’t have to be a certain way to wake up. Nothing about me needs to change except where the attention is.”

    Short & Junk: Feminization of Male Characters

    in Entertainment

    Yzba asks: Seems like I have another question, or maybe a need to bitch about something. The tendency for some slash writers to feminize male characters. Particularly in the hp fandom, there’s this trend of giving Harry hips and long hair, It’s usually enough to make me close a fic really fucking fast. Lately, I’ve also seen it in other fandoms. Your thoughts?

    Giving Voice to Your Courage with SWP Author Leah Lax

    in Writing

    "A story that millions can recognize, told with spirit, courage, and honesty." -Gloria Steimen


    Author Leah Lax talks about the journey of being a cultural immigrant in her own country. Her brave memoir Uncovered: How I Left Hassidic Life and Finally Came Home tells how she left  the Hassidic lifestyle after three decades. 


    Lax says, "My memoir, Uncovered, is about falling into Hassidic life as a young teen and leaving it at a run in my more-conscious forties. While writing that book, I was fascinated with the intertwining of sexuality with one’s spiritual sense. Both go to the core of who we are. Both can trigger passion and desire and need."
