WendyBookcaseLogo (2)  Good Day Folks,

Well I have been super busy. First I have to do what my PA Candice says and post the book we are promoting this week.

Helga Returns

Helga Returns

Just  click on the picture and it will take you directly to Amazon to purchase. It is only $0.99  for E-Book. If you do purchase it in print I will gladly mail you a signed adhesive backed book plate for free with proof of purchase.  My web designer Amy wants me to let you know she has made some changes to my website here is the link to my website as well and yes the dragons still fly around my website. Some times I get mesmerized by them. http://authorwbnystrom.com/.

Now that I have done what I am told how about my recent adventures. Well, I finally finished book 4 in James and Syvok Adventures. The working title is Amongst the Clouds. It is an exciting adventure. I love it. It is with my second proofreader then I will send if off to my publisher  http://anchorgrouppublishing.com/Hope they like it.

I am still working on my urban fantasy novel the New Moon Brethren. I am on a funeral scene and struggling with it, I get sad every time I work on it.  Blaze the dragon has been visiting me often in my dreams helping me along.  I wish I could take my dreams in my head and some how down load into words on my manuscript. I do keep a note book next to my bed but still, some of the visual details gets lost.

I have been involved in talks about my own radio show. Hopefully it will be revealed soon what is happening there and who I may work with. Still plugging away  on my local Library Renovation Team. Hoping to wrap this up in February. The good news we have 70% raised so the City went forward with the renovation. The library should move back to the renovated building in June of 2014. We still need to raise the last 30%.   My PA and I have put together a fun official release for Book 3 Tomfoolery and 13 Yule Lads of Iceland event on FB. Tomfoolery and 13 Yule Lads of Iceland Official Release. It is a fun Yuletide adventure.  I have three local authors events coming up. Book signing at Ferris State University Book Store Oct 19th noon to 4pm. Two others in November.  We are planning a 26 days of Christmas Event with a daily giveaway starting December 12th.  So we are having fun but the days are flying by fast. My kids are wrapping up their fall sports. My oldest James will be starting drivers ed in November eeeeeeek.  My hubby is home on Sabbatical and writing a book. I moved out of the office and into a corner in a sitting area. I am adjusting.  The bummer part is I cannot close the door when working.  Crazy busy adventure.  I had more to say but the University that I live behind was venting something for many hours and driving me insane. I was told around dinner time they were blowing out the sprinkler system for winter. 

Keep up with specific details on my FB page listed in the links below.  Every day you wake up is  a good day. Enjoy the Adventure, WB

Oceanus chuckled and changed the subject. “You’re finally seeing her for who she is, aren’t you, little brother?” The formalities were absent. Oceanus spoke to Pyre as his brother, not as his leader for the time being.

“I don’t know what you’re talking about.” Pyre lied, poorly.

This caused an outright laugh to erupt from Oceanus. “Yes, you do.”

He flicked Pyre’s shoulder with his tail. “You haven’t picked on her once since she told us of her plan to raise the mountain.”

“She’s amazing, Oceanus. Father and the others they were so wrong about her. She’s a gift to us from the gods. She has to be! They talk to her! None of us except Rose can talk to them. We were so wrong about her, Oceanus. Father should have let you mate her. She deserves to be an Oni’s mate. You can mate her now you know.” Pyre’s words ran from his mouth in string of nonsense, but Oceanus heard and understood them all.

“Aye. She would make the perfect mate for an Oni. But I have seen the way she looks at you, Pyre. I missed my chance to have her by my side. You, however, have just come into her sights. Stay with her until she wakes, then head home.” Oceanus emphasized home by lifting his head and looking up at the floating mountain.

pyre

Pyre let Oceanus’ words roll around in his mind long after his brother had left. As night fell, a wind began to howl through the tunnel the floating mountain and the ground made causing the temperature to plummet in the desert. Pyre watched Rose sleeping, and every so often took his tail to brush off the sand that accumulated on her body.

Reveiw adventures!

 Good Day Folks,

  487958_10152105377558056_470157528_n First I want to let you all know my ebooks are all on sale The sale ends October 1. Links are below. I thought I would share something I have discovered about authors. When most of submit us our books to reviewers, we all of sudden become nervous wrecks. I do. While I wait all of sudden I am insecure about my writing. It does not matter how many say I love your books, or my kids love your books. It does not matter we are waiting for that one review that will crush us for a little while. These are the emotions I go through.

They will hate, the story is to long, they catch some grammatical error,  etc.  This will be the one where a nice reviewer emails me and says I really do not like your story so will not review instead of posting a 1 star review.Then I  try to convince myself it I can only learn from this and do better. These are the thoughts I have and I know many others do. Authors are a insecure bunch.  But this is good, it makes us better writers.

Well so far I have be very blessed. None of these images in my head have come true.  My reviews have been outstanding and criticisms have been very helpful. I want to thank all who take the time to review, share and spread the word that children will love my stories and hopefully let them explore the adventure.

“The color of the illustrations by Jim Weidman and the very well-written story by Wendy Nystrom make “James Saves the Moon” a rare treasure for a children’s picture book.

The biggest advantage of adventure stories is that they encourage children to think and be imaginative. It gives them the freedom to dream, experiment, think differently, and create their own characters. I found the little trolls and dragonets very interesting and they add to the whimsical quality of the story.”

Why Christmas in July. Well my dear friend Chris, a couple of years ago told me at lunch one day. One side of her family celebrates Christmas in July. I of course asked why and said really! Do any of you celebrate Christmas during the summer  months except for the southern hemisphere?

Well it is the only time the family can all get together. They meet I believe at their family lake home. They go all out. Decorate, dress, exchange gifts and eat and have fun. I said to her I am going to release my third book in July and have Christmas in July. Fun huh!  I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer adventure. Enjoy the Adventure WB

 Good Day Folks,

 My first books is on sale for a few more days.  Your kids will love the adventure. Here is a review

This review is from: James Saves the Moon (Paperback)

Just read the coolest kids book….its called “James Saves The Moon” by Wendy Nystrom.

Wendy’s book starts in Iceland, and her son saw something-remarkable. But-at the same time, he wonders, could it really be? So what does he want to do-explore of course, after all, he is a little boy with a great imagination! James sets out on an adventure inspired by his mom and supported by his family. Along the way he makes a new best friend, and other friends. He finds out some fables of Iceland, and explores things around-but most of all, he experiences a journey of a lifetime with his new friends. Really, this book is one that will spark your child’s imagination, set them off in wonder, and give them something to aspire for! Wendy’s illustrations will give you the feel of another land, an adventure in itself-great job to her illustrator! Her writing makes each image pop together, and form almost a movie in your mind. Such a fun book to enjoy!

My 9 year old has become a “mega fan” and reads the book daily! It is one of his newest favorites! He talks about it, shows people the book, and explains it to his brothers–that is a book that has truly captured a child—phenomenal.

Enjoy and have a grand adventure today. WB
