Guest post – Working With Dad by Author Heather Ellis

Posted on Updated on

Hi everyone three posts in one week!

I just wanted to say to everyone, to check out my guest blog post on http://kid-lit-reviews.com !

They have been really encouraging for me and my books – the link is below =)

Today Kid Lit Reviews is extremely happy to showcase a new author. Heather Ellis released her debut children’s, The Sugary-Sherburts, in 2013. Her second book, The Sugary-Sherburts and The Stone Witch, released this past January 7, 2014. Both books will be reviewed here this Saturday, March 22, 2014.

There is one amazing catch . . . Heather is a ten-years-old. She will tell us what it was like to work with an illustrator, whom she calls Dad.

What is it Like Working with My Dad as an Illustrator on My Books?

A Very Sugary Review

Posted on Updated on

An absolutely lovely, 5* book review of my latest book called The Sugary-Sherburts and The Stone Witch. 🙂 Check it out everyone!

A Platform of Sorts

Hi everyone!  Just a quick updated tonight.  It’s Friday night, which of course means I’ll be going out on the town, partying at the clubs. No, just kidding.  I’ll totally be sitting on the couch, with my blanket and my kitty, reading and writing.  Maybe I’ll get a little wild by popping open a bottle of water and watching a Disney movie.  Livin’ it up in the new year, yo.

Anyway, the real reason I’m writing this is to share my review of Heather Ellis’ latest book, The Sugary-Sherburts and the Stone Witch.

Five Stars!

What a fun read! The Sugary-Sherburts and the Stone Witch, written by young author Heather Ellis, tells the magical and fun-filled tale of Herbert, Charlotte, Kit, and Kat Sugary-Sherburt. The family lives in the town of Thornton, a city made entirely out of chocolate (when can I move in?). As it turns out, Kit…

Something I like to do as a semi-active blogger is to scroll through tags that interest me, Books, Authors, Reviews, etc… If I find a blog that I like, I’ll follow.  About a month back, I was scrolling the Author tag and happened across the blog of Miss Heather Ellis (https://heatherellisbooks.wordpress.com).  She is a young author from England and she’s just published her third short story book for kids, The Sugary Sherburts and the Stone Witch.  As it turns out, Heather is a kid herself, just ten years old.

How cool is that?  I mean, seriously?  To be a published author of not one, but THREE books at ten years old?  Want me to tell you what I was doing when I was ten?  I was either running around the house, throwing my Beanie Babies across the floor so that I could pretend to save them from “tornadoes,” or…

The Sugary-Sherburts and The Stone Witch review from Amazon

Posted on Updated on

In case you didn’t know, my book called The Sugary-Sherburts and The Stone Witch just got a 5* review on Amazon, I am so excited that I wanted to share it with everyone.

kindlestonewitch

“I loved this book; it is just like a modern day fairytale. I read this book at a children’s group and found that the children and the parents absolutely loved it. It is lovely to come across such a good story that makes you grin from ear to ear and makes you want to shout things to the characters to tell them what you think. It is incredible to think that this has been written by a ten year old. Her writing style is as good as many adults who write for children. The illustrations in this book are simple and yet made me smile every time. A word of warning though – do make sure you have all you need to make baked beans on toast, you may well end up craving it after reading this book.”

 

The blurb from the book, is below.

A cruel witch and a desperate discovery. Kit and Kat, Sugary-Sherburt, find themselves on the run from a dastardly witch who is trying to destroy their town called Thornton. Kit and Kat must join forces to defeat the wicked witch and get home in time for dinner. The journey takes them to a secret snow castle. They are in terrible danger; will they manage to save the town, their friend and families in time? The Sugary Sherburts and The Stone Witch is part two of the Sugary-Sherburts series by Heather Ellis.

Release date for my #kidsbook sequel to The Sugary Sherburts

Posted on Updated on

I have been working on a new children’s book for a little while. I’m happy to say it’s nearly ready for release now!

It will be a sequel to my debut book called “The Sugary-Sherburts”. I am going to release it on Sunday 8th of December on Amazon.

It’s the first sequel that I have written but not the first book.

The Sugary-Sherburts was a really popular children’s book that I wrote early in 2013. People have been asking when I am going to write the sequel because they liked it so much.

My dad has been doing illustrations for it for the last few nights. I have been telling him what pictures I want… they look awesome, he is really good at drawing! I am so excited about this! =)

I will be creating a video trailer for it soon and I will post it on my blog.

 

How to create a Story Mountain for writers #kidslit #amwriting

Video Posted on Updated on

I have created a YouTube video on the web-site called Animoto.

In this video it explains how to create a story mountain, to plan out stories.

I do a story mountain before I start writing a story, to plan everything out.

It doesn’t always go to plan but I really like the video, hopefully kids will be able to use the video and maybe even some adults!

I hope that you all like the video as well!
