Hi, Margot,

 

As a grandparent I'm always concerned about the message books I read to my grandchildren are sending. One book I reviewed was terrific, with great illustrations, but the authors didn't realize one of the messages that could be taken away was that change was needed to be accepted by other.

 

On, the flip side, silly pbs are great for their pure entertainment value.

 

But, I'd sooner purchase the book with a take away value as long as it is also engaging to children.

Flashbacks: I think they can be useful if used sparingly. I think publishers are going to the extreme with cutting prologues and flashbacks, and even helpful description (telling).

Just my opinion.

@Meagan: Hmmm... not right.  That would be like men invading CafeMom.com which some have tried in the past, but were kicked off once found out.  Thanks for the heads up, though. ;)

@MandeeK...There shouldn't be, but I thought I saw a couple of men floating in here.

Are there men on Mom Bloggers Club??
Comment by Meagan Frank on January 19, 2011 at 8:46am

Good morning everyone. (I almost put ladies...but there are a few guys on here, right?)

Today's prayer for all of you:  for strength to write and reach people.

 

Also, I wanted to extend an invitation to any writers in this group who live in the twin cities, western Wisconsin or Colorado.  (I know...a strange list of geography) My first book is due to be published with TreasureLine Books in March, and I am conducting "presentation parties" similar to the groups I used to gather the information for the book.  Check out my latest blogpost to learn more.
