Soulful Women’s Joyful Journey Interview

Hello everyone,

Welcome to Wanda Luthman’s Children’s Book Blog, although recently I’m sure it hasn’t felt like a children’s book blog as I have been sharing about my new genre, Christian Fiction, and the developments occuring around that.

I apologize for the interruption in regular programming. Thank you for your indulgence.

One of the new developments is that I met a beautiful spiritual woman named Jenny LiCiccione on Alignable. It’s a local social media site to connect local business owners.

We texted back and forth and then decided to speak via Zoom. We spoke on Zoom several times and then Jenny invited me to be part of her show called Soulful Women’s Joyful Journey.

I was thrilled to be part of such a special program!

We set up the date and time for last Monday and now here it is for everyone to view!

Our topic was on grief and healing through spirituality.

I hope you find it enlightening and helpful.

Here’s the link to watch it https://youtu.be/qSyr6ssuEfI

Please share with those whom you feel it may help.

About Jenny Li Ciccone:    

Many spiritually-oriented women professionals and entrepreneurs feel trapped in emotional and thought patterns and held back in life. Jenny helps them heal in natural ways by removing hidden blocks and clearing stuck energies in the body so that they can feel nurtured, re-energized, and free to move forward in life.    

An author of  “Decoding the secrets of Joyful Living,” Jenny is a Joyful Living & Soul Purpose coach, and a Certified EFT practitioner, an AEFTP founding member. She leads an online Soulful Women’s circle and supports her clients with 1 – 1 and group Healing/Coaching sessions, both online globally and offline (when circumstances allow) in her local area.   

Jenny’s expertise came from the combination of her 15 + years of experience in career consulting and coaching, her born talent and gift, and her unique approach with a Four-step system that she has developed in the past decade.     Through her transformation experience, Jenny’s mission is to serve soulful women to clear beliefs, blocks, fears, and past programming and come out from a pressured and foggy place.    

Jenny hosted her first Tele-summit: A Journey to Joyfulness in 2014 and now continues the journey to bring more experts sharing the messages about love, wholeness, and freedom.

New Genre Announcement: Christian Fiction

Welcome to Wanda Luthman’s Children’s Book Blog.

Today, I wanted to share some exciting news with you (drum roll, please)!

I have begun writing in a new genre!!

It’s Christian Fiction.

I’m super excited about this new development!

The first book I have written and published is called, The Cloak, and it’s about the Roman soldier that won Jesus’ cloak at the foot of the cross.

It’s available as an Ebook or in Paperback and coming soon as an Audiobook.

The second book is almost done. It’s in the editing phase. It’s called, The Veil. It’s about the veil that was torn in the synagogue when Jesus died.

In honor of publishing in a new genre, I’m doing a Live at 5PM eastern US time ‘Countdown to Easter’ since the book is a perfect Easter holiday book. You can find that on my Facebook Book Business Page at http://www.facebook.com/wluthman

On Live at 5PM ‘Countdown to Easter,’ I share a little about my book but mostly about the healing from the loss of my husband (from terminal brain cancer) through my faith in Jesus Christ.

My hope and desire is that these Live videos will help others who are grieving and those who want to help those who are grieving as I pull back the curtain to what I went through and what was helpful to move me through the grief process and come out the other side still with my faith intact and embracing life and a bright future.

This new genre of Christian Fiction is meant to be faith-building as well as contain the message of salvation.

I know this isn’t really a children’s book, but I wanted to share this exciting book news with you!!

Here are the first 6 Live at 5PM talks I have done.

Tails of Blueberry Street series (Return to Blueberry Street; Book 2 in the series)

Author, Debbie Burton

Hi everyone!

Today, I have a returning featured author, Debbie Burton, here to share about the second book in her series, Tails of Blueberry Street.

Meet Debbie Burton, author of the Tails of Blueberry Streetbook series.

Thank you, Wanda, for the opportunity to once again connect with your audience. My second children’s book, Return to Blueberry Street was released by Elk Lake Publishing in August of 2020. The story follows Buddy the beagle as he leads his canine companions on a mission to track down the porch pirate who is stealing their treats. A mystery for children ages six to nine, Return to Blueberry Street teaches the values of teamwork, fairness, and the importance of protecting wild animals. Told from Buddy’s point of view, the action begins with a camping trip where he meets a wild monkey named Freddy on a hike through the woods.

I was inspired to write this book during a visit to Silver Springs State Park in Florida. At a trailhead I saw a sign about the presence of wild monkeys in the area. These animals descended from of a group of rhesus monkeys brought to Florida from Asia for the purpose of entertaining tourists. The owner of the property put them on an island in the middle of the Silver River for boaters to see. He didn’t know monkeys can swim. They swam off the island and have lived in the surrounding woods ever since.

Return to Blueberry Street is book two of the Tails of Blueberry Street series. The first book, Buddy the Beagle on Blueberry Street, introduces the character of Buddy and shareshis struggle to recover from a serious injury which paralyzed his hind legs. Both books feature Buddy’s rival, a Doberman named Blitz, who is twice Buddy’s size. Blitz bullies Buddy for his disability and makes Buddy doubt himself. Their relationship teaches children to empathize with people who are different.Both books are perfect for classroom read-a-louds and include questions for discussion.

I am a retired elementary teacher turned author. For the majority of my life I’ve worked with children, but never thought I would write for them. My husband encouraged to me to write a children’s book in 2015. Since I love writing poetry, we both envisioned a rhyming picture book. After meeting with editors and agents at conferences, I discovered publishers were more interested in early reader chapter books. At first, I thought writing a chapter book would be impossible. What could I write about? Then I thought about our pet beagle, Buddy, who really did experience most of the events I describe in the first book.

Three years later I met Deb Haggerty, Editor in Chief of Elk Lake, at a Florida Christian Writers Conference. She loved my idea and offered me a contract. I am represented by Michelle Lazurek of WordWise Media Services. I plan to continue the Tails of Blueberry Street series, and I am currently writing book three. As an author I want to develop relatable characters whoengage children and encourage empathy for others. Both of my books are available in paperback and eBook.

Maureen Larter’s Books and Sweetfields Publishing

Hello everyone, Welcome to Wanda Luthman’s children’s book blog. Today, I have a wonderful author, Maureen Larter, who is going to share with you some books she has published for other authors as well as her own books. Take it away, Maureen….

Hi everyone from Australia.

This last twelve to eighteen months have been a real trial. Where I live on the east coast suffered like the whole of Australia – firstly with drought, and even the weeds died! Then came the fires – everywhere. We were watching a fire north of us, which got to about 3 kilometres away before the wind changed, and then another fire racing up the hill only a kilometre from us to the west. It was a stressful time.

After all that, we got floods! And then, of course Covid hit. The lockdown has only just started to ease after 10 months.

Now … as a writer, the isolation really hasn’t been too much of a hardship, as I have sat at my computer and worked at more of my books, and I took on several other authors work to publish. I think I’ve been busier than ever.

This year I have published 3 books for other authors,

with another one ready to order and launch next year.

I have also written and published two of my own picture books and one chapter book.

I have another chapter book and three picture books almost ready to launch in the new year – just waiting on the illustrators to finish their pictures. They are ‘Smugglers and Dragons’ – a Kathy Edwards adventure book and picture books – ‘Conrad Camel and the Cutie-pie’, ‘Neville Numbat is Nosy’ and Peter Platypus’s Pond’.

I think the best defence against mental and emotional problems is to stay busy – and I’ve certainly done that.

I hope everyone in America is coping with the pandemic and staying as safe as possible. You all have had a stressful year, too. 

Love from Maureen (Sweetfields Publishing)

Please visit me and friend me on Facebook (3 pages -fb/booksbymaureenlarter, fb/sweetfieldspublishing and fb/Alphabet Animals of Australia. Also on Twitter and LinkedIn.

Thank you, Maureen, for the good work you are doing to help authors get their books published as well as publishing your own books with wonderful messages for kids.

Thank you to my blog readers for stopping by today. I hope you discovered some new books to you!
