Stay on the path! Life will distract you. When I was performing my last school assembly in England in 2013 I stopped planning and allowed the event in finding a new career distract from the career I really wanted – being an author. I reached 1.6M kids in six countries and thirty-five states as a NED Show performer so why wouldn’t I continue reaching kids in a positive, character-building way? How many more kids can I reach through books than in person? It’s exponential especially with today’s multimedia and social media opportunities. I met Tim with Blue Fish Web Design in Post Falls, ID today … Today I began planning my next career as a kids book author. Kids Have Ups and Downs Too the first book in the series, as well as the second book subtitled, “A Bully’s Journal” are available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Remember “Promoting literacy of the heart and mind cultivates the landscape of a child’s future”. #BookerWeed #KidsHaveUpsAndDownsToo #bethebuddy
What is your rousing or uplifting identity that tells others who you are? Maybe you want others to know your call in life or maybe your cause? I want others to see how I try to live like Christ spoke the Truth because He was the Truth speaking. I want Christ to be my anthem. I may hit a wrong note at times but the conviction of my heart sets me back on track. I write & illustrate kids books because the anthem of #BookerWeed is sharing with kids that no matter what’s happening at home, their neighborhood, or with their friends they have what it takes to make #goodchoices.
“Kids Have Ups and Downs Too!” has been approved and released to http://www.mindstirmedia.com
for publishing and can be ordered from Barnes & Noble in about a week and on Amazon about two weeks later. In addition it will be released worldwide via numerous other distribution channels. I’ve finished the first chapter of book number two and the third is conceptualized. But more importantly I want FB friends and supporters and those who purchase my books to grab hold of the concept of the journal in the back. This link was given to me yesterday by an elementary principal – I’ll let the short video clip speak for itself – I’m reminded I need to journal more myself … When I do it’s almost like that good cup of coffee feeling on a cold day – nice and warm on the inside. A special thanks to Kevin Walsh who has supported this call on my life since day one and who was sitting in the Denny’s restaurant in 1979 when I doodled Booker Weed on a napkin. To Tammie Heath who so patiently lets me share my thoughts and ideas with her no matter how crazy and to my kids for learning they have what it takes to make good healthy, positive choices. “Encourage a child to journal and their thinking turns to writing. Growing Literacy of the Heart & Mind Cultivates the Landscape of a Child’s Future.” I’m living a Romans 15:13 day I hope you do the same.
Booker Weed is proud and excited to announce his first book is hot off the press … almost – just a couple of little edits and “Kids Have Ups & Downs Too!” will be available in the U.S., Canada, England, and Australia from Amazon. You can also find it at Barnes & Noble. Thank you for your patience and the overwhelming support and encouragement.
