Happy New Year 2018!

As 2017 draws to a close and 2018 stands before us filling us with hope, I just want to say a big thank you to all my family, friends, and followers who have joined me on this journey of writing for publication.

Officially being called a published author has been a lifelong dream finally fulfilled.

But, 2017 brought even more than I had ever dreamed when Little Birdie Grows Up won the silver medal in the Readers’ Favorite International Competition!! I’m now an award-winning author. I still can’t believe it as I type this.

In addition, my blog was listed as one of the top 100 blog sites for children’s books. I don’t write my blog to receive recognition but rather to share children’s books that I find inspiring along with other tidbits that I hope teachers and parents find helpful as they interact with children on a daily basis. But, to receive such a recognition is beyond my wildest dreams. And has spurred me on to continue to bring the best of the best in 2018.

This journey has brought me so much–I have learned more new things that I ever knew someone needed to learn (LOL!) and I have met some truly awesome people all over the world. I never knew my little world could expand in such a marvelous way.

Thank you! Thank you all for helping me, inspiring me, and sharing this journey with me. I am truly grateful for each one of you.

May 2018 bring you all you hope for and more!


As always, Wanda Luthman’s books that bring positive messages mixed with magical adventures are available on Amazon  at www.amazon.com/author/wandaluthman
