* The importance of establishing personal goals for oneself.
* How to be truly happy with one’s goals.
Michael Jung, writer and Children’s Literature Specialist, published a terrific review of Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy. His 3-paragraph review truly captures some of the best details of the book.
In his own words, the book contains: “pleasing dragon pictures,” and is “a gentle story that should please fans.”
I am VERY pleased to share that the full Mastering of Danny The Dragon DREAMS CD has been fully Mastered and the CD cover is in design work as I type away here. Thank you Tom Morris at Morrissound Recording in Tampa, Florida! This is an amazing CD with my book being read by an extremely talented vocal-artist followed by a well chosen compilation of 10 original classical songs, composed by up and coming composers. This CD is for ANYONE and everyone, all ages. All the profits to this CD are going to a Cause that is very dear to my heart and I will be announcing the CAUSE, broadly and soon. All the legal mumbo-jumbo is just about totally complete. All the composers on this CD will be announced and broadly promoted, so I ask you to support the Cause and the Artists once we release the details. Each composer currently has beautiful credits for movie and television. More support to them will only help their career and this Cause. When I am given the OK to lift the curtain, I will be sharing it all! Exciting! Tina
I was recently provided the opportunity to contribute to the reputable organization Altrusa International, a strong volunteer group that is working to better the community worldwide.
As part of Altrusa’s many local programs, I’ve donated copies of Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy, to be gifted to the lucky “Birthday Child of the Month” of the given month, along with Danny-themed goody bags!
In the previous blog entry, I shared a wonderful book review published at www.VirtualBookcase.com.
Along with the review, you will find that Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy is also available on one of the children’s “bookshelves” of the Virtual Bookcase website.
