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

Born to be Wild Adventure

Standard

Good Day Folks,

I was looking at music and came across Steppenwolfs’s song Born to be wild. Listen to it. We are Born to be wild.

Lookin’ for adventure
And whatever comes our way”

Like a true nature’s child
We were born, born to be wild
We can climb so high
I never wanna die

Born to be wild
Born to be wild

I was recently adopted for Adopt a Author Event on FB. Brittany The-BookNerd Carrigan, She has set up a 3 month event on Facebook. She is a blast to work with and helps us authors. Here is the event page if you would like to join. Wendy and Rachel’s Promotion- Palooza

I have an event February 13th for our local Festival of the Arts at the Library. It is an interesting event, for an entire month we get to explore different types of art.

I am a guest speaker to discuss children’s literature.  As I was writing my presentation I realized children need to be wild. They were born for adventure.

When I wrote my first book James Saves the Moon. We were in the middle of a wonderful fun adventure. We were living in Iceland. My son was 7 learning in Icelandic. I was keeping him up on his English. He is a gifted child especially when it came to being a gifted speaker and adventure. He was a early talker and storyteller. He was speaking in full sentences by the time he was two. Today at 15 he is still gifted in speech. His command of language is unbelievable to me. While I was continuing  his education at home to read in English. We discovered many books were boring no adventure. We did discover Tintin. My son loved those books. All about adventure and he could read them both in English and Icelandic. On my last trip to Holland, I picked up a couple  that were in Dutch. Now he is exploring music. My twin daughters are more the hands on explorers. They want activity, risk takers. I find them on roofs, up trees, swing set poles. They have little fear of the unknown. They were climbing mountains, cliffs, soccer nets at two. I could not have blinds or drapes in their windows when they were toddlers. I could not have open windows either.

I think this why a little place in my brain was unlocked with adventures, when my son one day said . “Look Mom the moon is on the mountain. I am going to touch it tonight. We all ran to the window in his bedroom to look.

“Let me tell you it was on the mountain, huge and it seemed we could feel the moon beams shooting through us.  I had a dream that night. The next day I wrote the first draft. Since then  I have had many dreams and written many things. The hard part is focusing long enough to finish a story. I love having this part of the brain free to explore , dream, share the adventures that were locked up for so many years.

The most important thing for a child is being able to go on an adventure. Children’s books should have an adventure no matter what. They want to explore touch, feel, take apart, figure things out as if always on a adventure. I think the most gifted educators are the ones to take a child on an adventure every day in class no matter what the subject is. Let’s, allow children be born to be wild it is there gift to us and our future. Exploration and Adventure is a good thing.

My children’s books are all about adventure my reviews and private messages have brought me pure joy when mothers tell me, my goodness my kids could not put it down. My son wants to ride the dragon. My child with ADHD or Autism was captivated with your story.  Kids need to let their imaginations fly. The illustrations have a dragon on every picture. I am lucky I have worked with two wonderful illustrators. Jim Weidman and Kelly Murray. I came to Anchor Group Publishing with my own illustrators and my poor grammar skills. They embraced my adventures. Working with Anchor Group and the authors of Anchor Group has been a wonderful adventure. All the authors are so talented and take you on adventures. The lil anchors (kids authors) have  fun adventures. We help each other, encourage each other to be our best.  Adventure and Exploring is in my opinion the trail to happiness.

ENJOY YOUR ADVENTURE,  WB
