Bullying Book Storyboard Complete

I recently received a sneak peak at the storyboard for the children’s book I wrote about bullying. I have to say, it looks great. Each time I read the story, I feel a sense of pride. As I’ve said before, it’s not the typical bullying story. It offers real solutions for children being bullied and doesn’t follow the standard “everybody becomes friends” ending. Too many times I see children’s books filled with false hope. I don’t think a topic as important and powerful as bullying should be masqueraded by false hope.

The currently untitled book is being designed by Chris Hall, and illustrated by Brian Krümm. (The same team that illustrated Eartha the Sea Turtle). Although I am the writer of this book, it’s not being published through Totem Tales Publishing.

If you are interested in possibly purchasing this book, please let me know.

 

 

A New Children’s Book on Bullying

Two months ago I was asked to write a children’s book about bullying. Bullying is a serious topic that is getting much more exposure now than years past. Since this was essentially a work-for-hire, I cannot give too much detail about the book, but it does cover different aspects of bullying, include verbal, and physical.

The story is unlike other books out there. Those who know me, know I do things different … I make my own kind of music. This story had to be different. There are too many stories out there that end the same way. This story has a different ending, something both children and adults can truly relate to.

This is the second team-up of myself and the illustration team of Brian Krümm and Chris Hall. The two were instrumental in bringing my first book, The Tale of Eartha the Sea Turtle, to life. I’ve enjoyed working with them again on this very special project.

As always, I will keep you posted on the project.
