Promotion is key!

Promoting one’s books is difficult as it is often regarded as bragging, so when others review or promote my books, I am very appreciative. I want to give a shout out to the following people for their support.

Edmonton and area Fetal Alcohol Network Society

Edmonton and Area Fetal Alcohol Network Society recently posted about my series on Facebook. It is always a nice surprise to log into Facebook and see my books staring back at me. THE SCHOOL DAY, and, FIDGET! are the first two in the, Strawberry & Cracker, Twins with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, series.

THE SCHOOL DAY focuses on the challenges of students with FASD. FIDGET! highlights the hyperactivity of kids with FASD, and how their fidgeting irritates people who do not understand the symptoms of the disorder. Currently in progress is the third in the series, titled THE BIRTHDAY BASH! Children with FASD are rarely invited to children’s birthday parties as the loud noises and activities can overwhelm their senses causing them to break down. THE BIRTHDAY BASH tells what happens when Strawberry & Cracker attend their big brother’s birthday party.

Nofas.org Weekly Round Up

In their Weekly Round Up, nofas.org mentioned my new children’s FASD picture book FIDGET! Here is a blurb on the contents of the book. 

BOOK BLURB for FIDGET!

Meet Strawberry & Cracker, Twins with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome who live with their grandma and her dog, Thunder. The twins struggle with fidgeting. All children fidget, but a child with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome frequently over-fidgets, thereby annoying people who do not understand impulsive behaviors. However, there are strategies to calm the child and control fidgeting.

FIDGET! introduces the reader to Strawberry & Cracker’s typical fidgeting scenarios. While no one strategy for avoiding fidgeting will work for every child, Grandma realizes the importance of discovering which ones work for the twins. By discussing those strategies with other adults, she hopes people will apply the calming methods and lessen the stress of fidgeting.

For over twenty years, I have parented four grandchildren with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome: a disorder caused by prenatal exposure to alcohol. Please read of our family struggles and challenges at http://www.challengedhope.com. My two ebook memoirs available on Amazon titled: Two Decades Of Diapers, and, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome: The Teen Years, describe the struggles my grandchildren and I experienced during their youth and teenage years. I have also written fiction, including a six-book English seaside series, titled, Under the Shanklin sky. I am now embarking on a new adventure creating children's picture books, designed specifically with kids with FAS in mind. The two main characters of the book are Strawberry & Cracker, twins with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. The first titled The School Day focuses on the special supports the twins need at school for a successful outcome. The book is due out in the fall of 2017, to be followed by more in the series, all focused on the daily challenges faced by children with FAS.
