A wise person once said, “Write your name on the heart of a child.” We hope to emblazon our stories there.

My great-niece, Holly,a lovely tween.
Emblazon is a collection of authors–some indie, some traditionally
published–who have each produced at least one children’s novel. Our audiences 
range from fifth grade to young adult, but we have a particular focus on ages 11 to 14. Some call them upper middle grade; others call them low young adult. They’re somewhere in the middle and can lean either way. We call them Tweens.

Holly is an avid tween reader.
To celebrate our launch, we are giving away lots of amazing books! You can win signed paperback copies AND ebooks of stories written by our authors.

Am Recharging

I'm taking time off from blogging to 
reconnect with people.

There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening, that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. ~ Martha Graham

How do you recharge? Is there a secret you'd like to share?

HELP THE ELF: I Found Santa’s Missing Nice List!

Hi everyone! As you may remember, a few weeks ago PETE the Elf had a touch too much Eggnog at the Holiday Christmas Party and as he stumbled home, he lost Santa's NICE LIST.

The North Wind scattered the papers to all four corners of the world, and The Bookshelf Muse put out a call to help find them in order to SAVE CHRISTMAS.

Ever since I read about it, I've been on the lookout. And then today, EUREKA!

Yes that's right...I found part of Santa's missing NICE LIST. There it was, fluttering in the wind, half caught under the corner of my welcome mat. And shock of all shocks, I recognized the name, and I bet you will too.

Here it is below:

NAME: Robyn Campbell

LOCATION: Robyn Campbell (Putting Pen to Paper)



OBSERVATIONS: Robyn is not only supportive and kind to all, but she has a knack for lifting people's spirits and making them smile. Or laugh. Or dance a happy dance. She's been through one crisis or tragedy after another this past year, yet she still comes through for her family and friends, offering hope and kind words. Sometimes she loses her temper, though, and lets an "Oh, fiddlesticks!" slip out. We still love ya, Robyn! Mwah! Sugar pops and gumdrops!

RECOMMENDATION:     a) Coal                   b) Gift

~ ~ * ~ ~

Because poor Pete is dashing all over the place trying to hunt down the rest of Santa's missing Nice List, I decided to take care of this one myself. Robyn, I'm truly blessed to know you! Enjoy the gift I sent to your inbox. Wishing you and your family a bodaciously wonderful Christmas!

How about you, Readers? Is there someone you'd like to say Happy Holidays to or tell them how much they mean to you? Join us! There's plenty of time left before Christmas, and sometimes a kind word can lift someone up in a way they really need.

It's as easy as sending a free ecard or email note, posting on a Facebook wall, or sending out a tweet. So go ahead and spread some kindness and cheer!
