Now you can read about these sidekicks. Let’s talk sidekicks. I have many side kicks. Some folks consider me a leader.  I always considered my self a support member but I guess I do like to build teams to accomplish a goal. When I have a team I assess their strengths and weakness’s. Once I know what folks can do well, I let them run with those gifts and ignore their weakness’s. Once I build the team I  prefer to take a roll of cheerleader as goals are accomplished and let some one else take the stage. I take the lead when a ship is taking on water  and fix the leak and move the ship forward. I do not like to let good ships sink. Or I jump abroad full speed ahead of a well running ship like Anchor Group Publishing. When I hired There for You Editing. Dear sweet Melissa Ringstad suggested I send my stories to Anchor Group. Best advice I received. Been smooth sailing ever since. Anchor Group with Stacey Rourke as captain and Melissa as her first mate is one well run ship. I am glad I was allowed to jump abroad.  I also have been enjoying teaming up with three other kids authors. Cindy Springsteen, Jodi Stone and I are sailing along as a sidekick ship to Anchor Groups Big ship and have  been building a promo crew called  Lil Anchors. It has been so much fun and all of our crew have been spectacular. Big Thanks go out to the Lil Anchor Crew  they are a fun bunch, creative and help  promote our books. I prefer to stand in the back of the room and watch what was started or pushed forward and see the faces of success.  I surround myself with people who are willing to move forward on a project. I am lucky so far I have not made to many enemies along the way.  Mostly very good friends.

As you set sail on your adventure remember to fill the ship with lots of side kicks. WB

Anchor Group Adventure

Standard

Good Day Folks,

I have been having a grand adventure with Anchor Group Publishing. Just finished final edits for James Saves the Moon face lift, with Melissa the editor who is great to work with. If you are looking for an editor check out There For You Book Editing  and Reviews her other business besides Anchor Groups Jack of all trades. https://www.facebook.com/thereforyou.editing

My neighbor Amy my friend and fab admin helped  with edits too. Check out her blog http://hopewchange.wordpress.com

Next step formatting and adding the illustrations to the manuscript. I am told it may release sometime in 2012. I am very excited it was first scheduled for sometime in January 2013.

Very aggressive group at Anchor with  Captain Stacey Rourke at the helm and a talented writer herself. It is turning out to be smooth sailing with this group.

Since Joining Anchor Group I have downloaded every book they have published and started reading them.

I have read

Golden by Monika Pardon. I loved this book. Begins with a young gal at her Grandmother’s funeral. Everyone is against her for some reason, she cannot trust anyone. Then an encounter with three bears. Yes three bears. She has been changed into something and finds out how important she is to the world or worlds. A lot for this young lady to take on. Not to give away anymore of the story.  I recommend this good read. It was fun and a clever way to find out what happens after an encounter with three bears. The rest of the story so to speak. Down load today you will enjoy the adventure.

The Brown House

Standard

 The Brown House (The Visitors Series) [Kindle Edition]

Christy Sloat (Author), Melissa Ringsted (Editor)

Review: AB – July 16, 2012

Suspenseful, well written and a truly updated ghost story that fits modern times.

In her second novel, Ms. Sloat, once again delvers  an excellent read. Her main characters are well developed and plot line is excellent. The story was well revealed and the side characters were well written. They drew out her characters and plot, without overshadowing the main point.

Ms. Sloat’s themes were eloquently woven together and she finished them off in an elegant bow. I look forward t more from Ms. Sloat and highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a great ghost story to read over the summer.
