  1. Roxie: I would love to be featured on your blog. My new Young Reader novel about Bigfoot, Annette: A Big Hairy Mom, has just been released by New Babel Books. It is the allegedly true story of a spoiled second grader who is lost is the woods who is found by a lonely Sasquatch mom suffering from empty-nest syndrome. They have many adventures and she teaches the boy how to have fun as she executes her plan, amid many dangers, to get him safely home. The book is becoming a favorite in it’s target audience and is taught as a chapter book in several school districts. Please take a look at annettethemom.com.
    Thank You

  26. Hi Roxie,
    I don’t know whether you received my message from a few days ago. I would be so honored to be featured in the Spotlight. It’s funny that I have a spotlight dog in my story that illuminates with God’s Word as well as all the townspeople of Illumination Station.

    Please let me know where to send either a hard copy, or an ebook to you.

    God Bless you,
    Jenny

  27. Roxie,
    I love your blog! I’ve read some of the reviews and was wondering how I would go about getting my Christian Children’s book – “Illumination Station, The Big Adventure” reviewed?

    I would love to send you my ebook for your review.

    Please let me know.

    Thanks for considering this.
    God Bless,
    Jenny

    • Hi Jenny, glad you stopped by! I would be more than happy to do a spotlight piece on your book, Illumination Station, The Big Adventure…drop me an email to continue the conversation – roxiewillbe(at)live(dot)com…
