Words & Thoughts From the Desk of Your Favorite Authoress

Adventures at the Tracy Library

Since I started teaching a class at the Tracy Public Library on June 6th, I have been receiving questions like:

“What’s it like?”

“Are you having fun?”

So I created a video that provides a fun & quick “peek” into what it looks like as I prepare before my class, “Introduction to Self-Publishing”, at the Tracy Public Library!

Do you have a story you want to tell, and you would like to enter the self-publishing arena?

This FREE class will help you on your journey! It will address topics such as:

What type of writing software do you suggest?
Do I need to copyright my book?
What is an ISBN & LCCN?
What is a trim size and which one do I need?
and much more…

I’ll see you in class!

I’ve been waiting a long time to do this!


Have you been searching for a fantastic resource that teaches social & emotional intelligence in a fun, engaging way, that is easy to integrate into class time? (For parents) on the way to school or even before bed?

Before #SEL became the “big push” to integrate in schools the way it is now, there was Bingzy!

On the next episode of AUTHORized, I will be reviewing the children’s book, That’s Bingzy!: Busy Building Self-Esteem, a hidden gem that is full of “golden nuggets”.

But in the meantime be sure to check out our latest episode, interview with children’s book author, Ithream “Auntie I” Blackmon, in which she talks about her book, Sydney’s First Piggy Bank, that teaches financial literacy in a fun way!
