That's what I like to hear, "I've written these books to raise funds for my son who has autism."
Can I put in a plug for my children's murder mystery "Dead Puzzling?" This is a crime thriller for 8 to 12 year olds & tells how three kids decide to track the village killer, till the village killer decides to track them!
50% of the royalties from "Dead Puzzling" are being donated to the National Autistic Society because when my eldest son was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome the NAS leapt in & offered him the support that meant he could lead an almost normal life.
Let's hear it for the people who struggle daily with autism!
Let's hear it for the charities & workers who struggle to help them!
And let's hear it for fellow writers who struggle to find ways to plug our books!!!
Good luck everybody.

Party by The Light of The Refrigerator, is a perfect bedtime story book for ages 4 to 10. It's a simple story but the plot can be simply reenacted and you gain a little more quality time with your children. It's now available here on amazon.

T. Turner,
Thank you for your thoughtful review of my book, THE CRYSTAL PALACE: RESCUE OF THE FAIRY PRINCE. I have received your book, but Karina and I are doing creative writing/illustrating workshops in the four third grades in her school this week (great fun!), so I haven't had a chance to read it yet. I will do so this weekend, and get a review posted for you. I look forward to reading it. :)

Dear Brenda,

I would like to recommend Davy Brown Discovers His Roots to be released in June.

Davy Brown is a bright, all-American boy with some not-so-typical problems. His best friend may be leaving the country. His teacher has just instructed the class to describe their own immigration stories-but his family doesn't have one! And if he fails the class, he may lose his spot on the baseball team. And if all that weren't bad enough, the cafeteria is serving coleslaw again...

Join Davy and his friends Carlos, Erika, and Amit on their quest as they discover that even the most seemingly typical people have exciting immigration histories. Then, using the resources in this book, embark on your own voyage of discovery-what fascinating immigration stories will you unearth? How many flags adorn your family tree? The answers may surprise and delight you!

Alvor by Laura Bingham. It's a fantasy for kids from ages around 9 and up. Very clean too. It wraps magic, mystery and adventure together so well that even adults enjoy it.

Great thread! I just published "The Purple Elephant" (available on Amazon) and it is for both boys & girls, ages 5-10. It is 14 short chapters that can be read a chapter/night as a bedtime story, or straight through as a novel. It's fantasy but with enough humor to entertain the parents if they are the ones reading the story.

Running for My Life, is the uplifting story of a teenage girl who has developed Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) after being attacked by her schizophrenic mother. It's mostly a story about friendship and how teens can manage anything if they have good friends.

One superb new children's book is called "Kevin," by Joe Castle. It's a moving story about a boy who, with his younger sister, leaves their abusive home and takes control of their lives. Very good book.

The new Kindle version of "The Lost Secret of Fairies" was released this week. Really interested to see how Kindle works with selling to kids and their parents.
Do a lot of parents buy for their children yet on Kindle?
Check it out in the Kindle store.
Here's a bit about the book:
Wanda had always read about adventure. Now she was in the middle of one. The World of Fairies is real, and she is their new Crystal Keeper, human caretaker to the World of Fairies. But the Fairy World is in trouble. The fairies are falling ill from the pollution that ravishes the world above. Wanda has to find the key to their cure, before it's too late.

But like in all adventures, there are a few unanswered questions to solve. What has happened to the old Keeper? What are Germites? And can Wanda get used to her cat giving her backtalk while trying not to get grounded for helping the fairies? Join Wanda on her adventure, while she finds out that sometimes the best solution to a problem is the one you find within yourself.
"The Lost Secret of Fairies: The Crystal Keeper Chronicles Book 1"
Listed on as a paperback and now in the Kindle store.
It's listed at the bargain price of $3.19 as the Kindle Version.
Book 2, "The Lost Secret of the Green Man" is in it's final revision.
Artists are feverishly working on the cover and illustrations.
It should come out in the next few months.

As a children's book author, I'd love to be able to publish to such a popular medium as Kindle but the creators of this device obviously did not have children in mind. The boring and uncreative format in black and white does not offer much for children as any of the well laid out books with beautiful color illustration, which is a must for mine, simply would lose much of their beauty. Also it is my belief that younger children like to have the book in their hands. Maybe the makers of Kindle will wake up in the future and create a full color version in the future but till then, I wouldn't waste the effort to publish works for young children on it.

My works can be found at or here on listed as works by Wave Walton.

Available titles are:
1. The Wuffle
2. The Dress-Up Attic
3. Tootsie-The Nibble Hunter
4. The Finding of Blue Bunny

Titles to come soon are:
1. To Jump A Fence
2. The Wuffle-A Walk In The Woods
3. Tootsie-10,000 B.C.
4. The Butterfly Girl-Into The Land of Heart Butterflies
5. The Fairy Troll
6. A Compendium of Lengendary Creatures

BOOMING BELLA by Carol Ann Williams. Picture book, ages 4-7.
Nominated by the publisher, G. P. Putnam's, for the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators' 2009 Golden Kite Award for best picture book. It's about a little girl on a class trip to the museum who's too loud. In the end, her loudness saves the day. Kids want to read this book over and over!

My 2 BeBe Books, "BeBe . . .Meet the Yorkie Pup" and "BeBe . . . Go to the Beach with the Yorkie Pup" will make your kids smile. Brand new to Amazon, they're both written in verse with a photo illustration artistically done on each page. Your children will relate to the Yorkie pup as you read aloud to pre-schoolers. Grades 1 through 3 will be able to enjoy on their own. You may find out more on which is my website.

I must recommend "Kevin" by Joe Castle. It's an excellent book, very moving and detailing the escape of a young brother and sister from their abusive step-father. Unlike the sound of the source material, it's a funny and charming tale with much to recommend it.
