For Writer's today & those who love summer children's books ;)

-- Authors Read Radio --

Do you remember that special time with your grandfather or grandmother: the walks, the talks, the bonding between child & grandparent? Nine-year-old Brylee & her grandfather had special times each Sunday together as they bonded while exploring the outdoors & discovering the secrets of nature. - The author, Tommy Batchelor was born & raised in Georgia (USA) and after a career in the US Army, he is now exploring the world of writing more seriously. According to Tommy’s site he started writing years ago for himself and his family but when he wrote Sunday's With Papa T, he said let's give this one a shot! With the help of a excellent illustrator, Ted Clements, this book came alive!!

Come on over to the Authors Read radio show to hear this author share and excerpt from his book: Sunday’s with Papa T.

-- Quote of the Day --

“Keep at it (writing), keep trying – if you set it aside for 6 months, that doesn’t mean it is over. …You can sit down and start writing 10 minutes a day; get up 30 minutes early in the morning and write. It will take a while, but you will get there – and really, it is important to persevere.”
~ Bruce Cook 7/3/07

I love this quote taken from an interview I had with Bruce on the Conscious Discussions show back in the summer of 2007. Bruce is a very encouraging person to be around if you are a writer. The advice he shared that day is incredibly valuable and I encourage anyone interested in the world of writing to check this interview out. The archive is easily accessed by visiting the Conscious Discussions website (click on the hyper-linked show title here, or look to the right for a link to the show). When you get to the site, look to the right where there is a list of archives - according to the month that they were aired in. So to access Bruce's interview you need to click on July 3, 2007.
