4 Sunflowers Media is Blooming!

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

There is so much going on it’s hard to know exactly where to start. Our books continue to find homes all across the country and so let me start with a big thank you to all our new Fuzzwipper friends.

Speaking of Fuzzwippers, we have a new member of the family we can’t wait for you to meet. Join us in welcoming Fuzzley and his new book, FUZZWIPPERS LEARN ABOUT FAMILY. This book reminds us that families come in all colors, shapes and sizes, just like Fuzzwippers. Sometimes we are born or adopted into our family and sometimes we can choose to extend our family to include our friends and neighbors and all the people who love and care for us. Check out FUZZWIPPERS LEARN ABOUT FAMILY today.

More big news about our YA novel, PLAY ON! Coming soon in the new and updated second edition, PLAY ON is the story of Dillon, a kid from New York City who gets a second-hand guitar. As Dillon plays it, he channels the ghost of the previous owner, a soldier killed in Afghanistan. Is the ghost a friend or foe? In a race against time to find the answer Dillon has no choice, he must PLAY ON.

As we keep trying to bring our message of empowerment over rescue to a broader audience, I am excited to tell you that PLAY ON has been chosen for inclusion on the cover of Publishers Weekly magazine! Huge honor and personal thrill for me! A true bell weather for our industry, Publishers Weekly continues to show great support for independent publishers everywhere. I am so grateful.

Last but never least, come and say hello on March 15th from noon to 3:00 at the Fairfield University Book Store 1499 Post Road, Fairfield, CT. Go Stags! Get your copy of PLAY ON, & THE FUZZWIPPERS! I can’t wait to meet you.

Keep your face to the sun my friends, so all the shadows will fall behind.
