Judith A. Terrys New Book Advocates for Victims to Stand Up Against Bullies

Chicago (PRWEB) February 09, 2014

Bullying is a widespread problem. A joint study from Clemson University and Hazelden, an addiction treatment and recovery services company, reported in 2013 that one-fifth of all students were involved in bullying at school, either as the victim, aggressor or both. Victims often feel trapped in their situation, but Judith A. Terry wants readers to know they have the choice to stand up against their bully. Her new book, “Why Bully Me?” (published by AuthorHouse), offers a real message of support for bullying victims.

“Readers need to know that things don’t have to stay the same,” Terry explains. “They shouldn’t be afraid to stand up and fight back. My book is different because it shows how to fight back against bullies.”

Ana makes friends with Lucille and Gloria on the first day of eighth grade. Lucille warns Ana that Gloria is trouble and after a short period of time, Gloria starts bullying Ana. Gloria’s bullying culminates in a standoff outside the school. Ana has to choose between standing up to Gloria or continuing to deal with Gloria’s bullying. Luckily, Ana can count on Lucille to stand behind her, as true friends do.

“Why Bully Me?” offers Terry’s advice on how to confront a bully, but also emphasizes the important role of true friends when one friend is bullied.

“I was bullied in school,” Terry relates. “I want to share with others who are being bullied what I did to stop my bully.”

EnvoyBooks Announces A New Bedtime Childrens Adventure Book – Combining a Mysterious Teacher, Disabled Kids, Super Heroes and Lessons on Persistence and Equality

Bakersfield, CA (PRWEB) February 12, 2014

Two authors, one disabled from a broken neck during a college wrestling match and the other a speech-language pathologist, bring their experience together to author an entertaining children’s adventure book now available at http://www.Amazon.com. EnvoyBooks proudly announces the illustrated Kindle eBook publication of “Miss Quince and the Can-Do Crew! The Mysterious Teacher and Her Class of Unlikely Super Heroes.”

Authors Mark and Katie Whyte wrote this super heroes book for kids as the story of a class of disabled children and an unusual teacher who helps them develop skills they never thought possible. This book focuses on helping the kids to think about and develop what they “can-do” rather than on what they can-not do. This fanciful and adventurous children’s book has life lessons on courage under pressure, overcoming bullying, and becoming a genuine super hero! This book is aimed at ages 8-12 but has a fun and encouraging message for a much wider age range. Currently available in Kindle format (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00I8UXB2S), other mobi and hard cover formats to follow.

Co-author, Mark Whyte states, “I broke my neck wrestling in college at cervical 6-7, when I was just 20 years old. As such, I understand the daily difficulties, hassles and disappointments that come with being disabled. But I’ve tried to never let that stop me from living life to the fullest. That is the message that Katie and I have conveyed in this book. Your various disabilities may be a huge inconvenience, but they do not have to stop you from living powerfully every day.”

Adding an extra bit of authenticity to their writing, the Whyte’s oldest son is autistic and Katie works daily with special needs children as a speech-language pathologist. Authors bio: http://envoybooks.com/about-miss-quince-authors.

In what the Whyte’s intend to be a series, this first installment follows Marcus and his new Can-Do Crew friends as he begins a whole new way of living after a life-changing injury. His real adventure starts when he enters the classroom behind the yellow door and meets a mysterious, perhaps magical teacher. Her class is made up of a variety of special-needs students with a “can-do” spirit that equates to some very cool and unique skills. Soon enough, Marcus finds that being disabled is simply not the handicap that most think it is – in fact, he’s never had so much fun before.

“Miss Quince and the can-Do Crew” is published by EnvoyBooks, the Whyte’s own indie publishing house, http://www.EnvoyBooks.com. Mark states, “Katie and I are grateful for the simpler publishing options available in this day and age that allows us to take an idea and put it into print in a quick and nearly hassle free manner. Our intention is to help others like us to publish their own books. For this book, our hope is that it will encourage kids and parents alike and that all will dream big dreams and work to live them out.”

One reviewer stated: “As a pediatrician, retired after 42 years of practice, I highly recommend this little book. It is very well written and illustrated. The authors speak from years of experience in dealing with special needs children. Their positive attitude shows through on every page. We need to see more such books. How about a “Miss Quince” series?” William R. Fackler, M.D.

Interested readers can find this book along with its no-cost companion audio book (download) at http://www.Amazon.com/dp/B00I8UXB2S , or contact the authors at Envoybooks.com.

New Childrens Book Aims to Help Readers Self-esteem

Joplin, MO (PRWEB) February 14, 2014

After his wife noticed some of her students’ home lives or other factors hindering their learning, author J.R.S. decided to write “The Book with No Name” (published by AuthorHouse).

The husband-and-wife duo teamed up to create a children’s book that would appeal to all students whose life situations have interfered with their creativity, learning or interactions with others.

“We wanted to show children that being different is OK,” J.R.S. says. “Being a little uncomfortable about being different is also OK. We also know that one should never judge anybody for being different, having a disability, or just being a loner. So by writing this book it gave us insight into helping young readers overcome their troubles and everyday life problems.”

The book includes colorful illustrations of childhood situations like bullying, run-ins with authority and embarrassment for being different.

Each illustration is accompanied by motivational phrases for young readers to incorporate into their lives as safety mechanisms against teasing or confrontation.

J.R.S. says “The Book with No Name” can help young readers believe in themselves and overcome societal norms.

“I’m happy that my dream has come into reality. Taking an initial idea then adding some inspiration and effort can have amazing results. I hope this work brings joy to parents and children alike.”

Benny’s mean tricks are enough to make Sheila the Sheep, Percy the Pig, Henry the Horse, and other cute members of the farm see that Benny just isn’t nice.

The story shows what happens when you do mean things to others, and with any luck, you’ll learn the same lesson Benny learns at the end of this tale.

Noris De Jesus-Petrones First Book The Pig Girl is a Heart Warming Story of Endurance, Perseverance, and the Indomitable Power of the Human Spirit

(PRWEB) February 23, 2014

Noris De Jesus-Petrone, a practicing Marriage & Family Counselor, as well as an adjunct professor at two separate colleges, has completed her first book “The Pig Girl”: a gorgeously illustrated book filled with wonder and the redeeming power of love and goodness.

“I remember being bullied and feeling like an outsider when I was a teen. As other girls my age were blossoming and becoming ‘beautiful’ I felt that I did not have the gift of beauty or anything that made me special. I would write poems and stories about how I felt, my experiences and dreams. One day, when my class was given the assignment to write a story I wanted to add my experiences of feeling bullied and laughed at, but with a twist of triumph at the end, which is also reminiscent of my own life story many years later. ”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Noris De Jesus-Petrone’s poignant tale is an uplifting children’s story about a young girl who thinks she has nothing but soon learns that the beauty of her soul and the shining goodness in her heart are priceless commodities that will draw happiness and joy into her life.

In the town of Hunter there lives a young orphan named Julie. Although she is very poor, she supports herself by working in the local farms and feeding the pigs. The other kids in town like to tease her for her job and the way she smells, but that all changes on one unusual day.

After wishing that one day she could become someone special, the wonderful, magical blue pig, Amanda, begins to help turn Julie’s life and luck around.

There is a true and obvious message of not feeling accepted by others. Julie teaches us that it is important to look at ourselves in a positive way, and understand that we all have so much to contribute despite what others may say about us. We must believe it and when we do there is nothing that will stand in the way of our bright future.

Readers who wish to experience this inspiring work can purchase “The Pig Girl” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.

Leo Phoenix Helps Children Accept Themselves in New Book

Buford, GA (PRWEB) February 23, 2014

It’s no secret that many people struggle with growing up. Whether that person can’t make friends or gets bullied by others, a sense of direction at a young age can go a long way. Author Leo Phoenix hopes to give children a sense of direction and assurance, in his new book “Sparkfire: The Star Whose Shine Was Lost” (published by AuthorHouse).

Sparkfire” takes readers off of Earth and into space, where the Sun watches over the planets and stars like children. One of the stars, Sparkfire, has been feeling rather glum lately, however, and is on the verge of burning out forever. The Sun takes Sparkfire on a journey of self-discovery, teaching him that the fire he wishes to keep burning has been inside him all along.

An excerpt from “Sparkfire”:

“Let the good that is in you bloom like a flower…and no matter how much darkness surrounds you, your shine will give it light.”

Phoenix hopes to teach children that they should be proud of who they are, and fill them with courage and strength.

He began writing in high school, a passion which he carried with him into adulthood. He hopes his writing can help other children who have experienced similar struggles in childhoods.

New book tackles bullying by celebrating Australian culture

Brisbane, Australia (PRWEB) March 03, 2014

“Duck Magic” by Elvira Davis is an inventive introduction to the topic of celebrating uniqueness.

The book is the first in a series of three children’s ballads about the Aarmoo children from Cloncurry in Central Queensland who visit the non-aboriginal children of the Smith family. The book serves as a visual tool to spark the conversation on topics like magic, safety, bullying and pain.

Davis was inspired to share her Australian fairy tale after learning about the many young aboriginal men in prison who feel they are unable to rise above their situations.

She hopes the book will inspire readers to gain confidence, use their imaginations and learn to find peace in the world.

“Every adult is a child at heart,” Davis says. “We need more imagination and laughter.”

Children’s Book Author Tonia Allen Gould Explores the Concept of Home in Her New Book

Santa Rosa Valley, CA (PRWEB) March 03, 2014

Children’s author Tonia Allen Gould believes “home” should be a sanctuary for kids, a place where they feel safe, secure, and loved. The concept of home is very personal to Gould, as she was moved into foster care after child services discovered she was suffering from physical abuse at fifteen. Now an adult with almost twenty years of parenthood and entrepreneurialism under her belt, Tonia is a living, breathing example that is possible to break that cycle of abuse and to go out and carve a path for oneself.

In her new picture book, Samuel T. Moore of Corte Magore (Mira Digital Publishing, 2014) and app (Skies America Publishing, 2013), Gould introduces young readers to a cartoon land and sea fiddler crab (drawn by former SpongeBob SquarePants storyboard directors) who wants to build his home on the idyllic shores of Corte Magore, but must overcome obstacles to do so.

“I want to show children that life isn’t always peaches and cream,” says Gould. “But if you’re willing to put your nose to the grindstone and ignore the bullies and the naysayers, in the end, everything usually works out okay.”

In a thoughtful interview, Gould can explore the following topics:


    Overcoming difficult circumstances as a child
    Dedication, independence, and hard work
    Discussing the concept of home with young children
    How books encouraged her to dream for a better life
    Kids & technology – why she first launched her book as an iPad app

After leaving the foster care system, Gould moved to California and built a thriving marketing and promotions agency with a great deal of perseverance and self-reliance.

“In some ways, this book is about coming to California – my Corte Magore,” Gould says. “It’s about leaving my past behind by working very hard and daring to dream of something better for myself and my own family.”

Tonia Allen Gould is a wife, mother, author, marketing expert, and sought after speaker. She is the founder and CEO of Tagsource, an award-winning nineteen-year-old consumer promotions and marketing agency.

In Samuel T. Moore of Corte Magore, Gould explores the concepts of perseverance, hard work, bullying, and finding a place to call home for young readers. Samuel T. Moore of Corte Magore is available through the iTunes store for $ 3.99.
