The Wolf In Tinkers' Alley
A 12-year-old orphan boy telescopes through space, to save his little sisters, who are stuck on another planet with no way home.
Porky Pig and Bacon Strips
According to Jennifer Armstrong "...if you love children’s literature, you cannot kill animals just because they taste good on a bun."
We can push any agenda as long as the answers are “earned” by the characters, rather than given to them by a heavy-handed author.
If publishers start putting out novels for teens that glorify white supremacy or anti-Semitism, I’m going to write articles and blog posts urging parents to shield their children and urging publishers to act responsibly.
Self-Promotion and Loving Your Neighbor
Published authors, we learn from the article, must force their contemplative Mary souls into dark corners and train themselves to be mighty Marthas, bustling about, concerned with many things, from sending out bookmarks to guest blogging to tweeting it up with strangers who want to feel like friends.

Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How…
Who Am I?
I'm Sally Apokedak, and I live with my son and my daughter and my old, old mother, in the lovely city of Atlanta. Born to missionary parents, I spent my early years in Taiwan. By the time I was six, I'd been around the world. The wanderlust I acquired early, followed me into adult life, taking me to work in places as far-flung as Barrow, Alaska, and Santa Cruz, Bolivia.
My most fulfilling job, though, was staying home, taking care of my family. My husband was a quadriplegic, and we adopted two children.

What Am I Doing Here?
I'm talking about life and children's books, because the two seem to get all tangled up together for me. I've loved both ever since I was...well...a child.
When Am I Doing All This?
It's hit and miss.
if you'd rather hit, than miss.
Here’s my tentative posting schedule:
Marketing on Monday: Or Me on Monday, because, truth be told, the thing I want most to market is myself
Toastmasters Tuesday: Something about public speaking
Wednesday Writer: On writing
Enthused on Thursday: The book I just have to share
Faith on Friday: Faith and fiction
Where Do I Get My Review Books?
I review books that I have bought or borrowed or begged. Sometimes I beg them from authors and publishers.
Why Do I Write Reviews?
No matter where I get the books I always give my honest opinion when I write reviews. I am not qualified to review books, really. I'm just a reader with strong opinions. I love talking about what I read and want to get others excited about children's books, too.
How Rich Am I Getting?
Many links here lead to Amazon.com. If you like my reviews and you click on a book title or cover picture and then buy the book (or anything else) from Amazon, I will get a small percentage of the sale price. Feel free to do that. It helps support my book-buying habit. I made about thirty bucks this way last year.
