Friday again, SO soon?
Well, I’ve had a very busy week- posting off the last of all your pre-orders 📦 📦📦& delivering books to my 7 stockists!
Andy & I & our respective other halfs celebrated this achievement by eating out in Bude……
We all wanted them really, but Andy was the only one brave enough to go for the ‘dunkin’ doughnuts’!
I’ve just secured 3 more stockists- which’ll keep me busy next week, too……with 4 others, also in the pipeline!
What has been an unexpected delight has been waking up to your FB comments, messages & emails saying how much you love MAGICAL MOSSY IN BOSCASTLE!
I hoped you all would, but it was never going to be a given or a certainty!
I’m collecting so many now that this weekend I am adding a ‘Book reviews‘ page to my website!
Well………apart from delivering more books to more stockists & getting all your lovely reviews on my website…….I am on a mission to get the ‘Kids of Kernow’ ‘s message out to as many children & parents as possible. That means that ‘MAGICAL MOSSY IN BOSCASTLE’ & ITS IMPORTANT MESSAGES really need to be recognised by people in the know!
That’s when I came across this!
The Janey Loves 2021 Platinum Awards
(CHECK IT OUT)
AND there’s a category for BOOKS!
I got out of my comfort zones & contacted Janey Lee Grace ( I did actually meet her once at an NLP conference, many moons ago!!)
(MAYBE YOU’VE HEARD HER ON STEVE WRIGHT IN THE AFTERNOON?)
Anyhow, she has confirmed that in the ‘Well-Being Author’ category, that a children’s book would be considered. YAY!!
I’ve checked out the entry form ( closing date August 17th 2021) & I have to be UBER creative & sum up the book in one sentence & then add a link to…….. book reviews!
SYNCHRONICITY OR WHAT!!!!!
I am sorry 😳…….& PLEASE FORGIVE ME
……….but to stand a good chance of being recognised as a top ‘Well-Being Author’ for children I need as many reviews as possible – so- once again a HUGE thankyou to everyone who has already written beautiful things about ‘ Magical Mossy in Boscastle’ ( & given me permission to quote them).
To everyone else, if you can possibly spend a few minutes to write a review yourself or – what would be wonderful- is if your child/ren or grandchild/ren could write a review (draw a picture, even, describing why they like the story) & either email me at lallyannturner @hotmail.co.uk or FB message me for those of you who are also my friends on FB – that’d be GREAT!😃
I KNOW I HAVE HUGE DREAMS, BUT IF YOU DON’T HAVE A DREAM – HOW YA GONNA HAVE A DREAM COME TRUE?
Here is a lovely review ( one of many ) received only this morning from A. Hill of Barrowby, Grantham…..
💕I found it especially beautiful because it was written to Mossy & Kismet!💕
” I loved your book & Andy’s illustrations & wondered if you’d forward this message please?
Mossy & Kismet, thank you so much for taking me on this journey with you & introducing me to Oli. I loved the way you encouraged him, through kindness, care & a bit of magic, to face his fears & be happy again!”
TILL NEXT WEEK……..HAPPY READING
