Books for Kids - Manuscript Critiques


Comment by Cody Young on November 2, 2011 at 9:00pm

New post up on my blog, entitled WHY YA? Everyone's reading teen fiction - and many of us are writing it too. Come on over and give me your take on it!

Something to consider if your manuscript has been reworked so often it has become threadbare and uncomfortable - like some old sweater you can't bear to throw away. .

I did it :) I released my book today.  a little nervous but excited :)  I released it to help inspire and empower women.  Especially  ones of abuse or rape victims/survivors.  Personal stories and how I learned to face those that wanted to bring me down the most. Go to

thank you

My REVIEW of Kathy Stemke's PB,  "Trouble on Earth Day," can be found here:

This charming "green" story teaches kids about recycling and reusing - and it's a FUN read too. The great info and games at the back are icing on this yummy cake.

Planning ahead to January already ... I will be doing a theme month were I review and speak to authors who have self-published their own work. If you have written a book or know someone who has and they have gone the self-publishing route - contact me at

If you would like your work reviewed during my Self-publishing month contact me soon so we can discuss the details! Please contact me by October 25th. I have about 15 spots open for full reviews and then other books will have shorter mini reviews. Please keep on mind I can only review print copies at this time and that my audience is mostly Mom's!

I look forward to hearing from you!

Another new short that's getting great comments. Yeah! I loved one of them. It said: Imagine meeting either your love or your killer...and the choice is yours.

If this last paragraph on this page is any indication, Richele, Lady Luck Publishing has in fact just recently been purchased:


According to a few other place I looked, it appears they were at one time at least taking other genres and I didn't see the name on any of the "bad" lists. 

As for Christopher Hawk - there is a legit author by that name who has self-published his previous works. Also, it isn't necessarily uncommon for an author to own a publishing company (present company included) so that should not necessarily be the red flag. I'd simply say proceed with caution as one should in all things.

Ask any pregnant woman and she will tell you that now she’s expecting what once smelled delicious  - like roasting coffee beans for example, has suddenly become the one smell that induces an overwhelming feeling of nausea. For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive with incredible detection ability, in fact increased smell sensitivity can save lives. Just ask your local gas company – pregnant…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
