Monthly Archives for April 2009
Last week the many submissions came in from so many talented composers, for the new Danny CD. I can not say much about it at his time but we are using only new up and coming artists, to help them known a little and get their music out as well. It has a dual purpose in that it will be raising money for a Cause of my choice.
I am so happy about this day. I was honored to conduct a reading and question and answer session at a school named Spring Valley in Palm Harbor, Florida. The kids loved the book and all the gifts I brought. The school was given their signed book by me, Tina Turbin. I really can say an author touches the lives of others in a very special way. I hope I inspired some “soon to be” authors in the school today. Thank you Spring Valley! Spring Valley is a Sudbury School and they base their education on trust and ability of the student to follow their inner guidance. and passions. The atmosphere at this school is evident that this is absolutely applied. The kids were calm, interested and had “natural” manners with one another. A delightful day! Thank you Diane Ballou , all educators and kids at this wonderful school.
I am so pleased to share the news that my Danny the Dragon is now sitting on a shelf in the prestigious London Book Fair! The books were shipped over there awhile ago and today I already received an e mail from someone who saw the book and wants to talk about further marketing. Also the music is coming in from the composers for the new Danny the Dragon CD! The representative for Danny over there will be sending me the list of people inquiring about Danny for my assistant and me to contact. By the way, my assistant, she is a dream and such a dear friend!
Belated results to you from me, Danny did extremely well at the NY State Reading Association function… lots of new projects in the works as a result of the response.
I found a great store for purchasing my cooking and research supplies. This is definitely going to help in the creation of more recipes, both for the Danny the Dragon cookbook and the Gluten Free website. Keep an eye out for some terrific recipes to be posted weekly on the Gluten Free site.
