Posts Tagged ‘Barking At Nothing’

Small DLT Stafford Market Elizabeth Leaper was selling copies of both ‘Collecting Cobwebs, Gathering Brambles’ and her own ‘Barking at Nothing’ which is sold in aid of the Donna Louise Trust, yesterday (Saturday 8th December) at Stafford Indoor Market. This is her little corner of the  Christmas stall of the  ‘Friends of the Donna Louise Trust’. Click on the link in the side bar to find out more about the Donna Louise Children’s Hospice Trust.

You can see she was in good company, although he rather rudely kept his back to her all day! The day was quite successful with several books sold despite the fairly low footfall. Apparently there was a Christmas Market in the town Square to compete with.

Elizabeth will be there again on Saturday 15th December so if you are in the area and are a fan of ELizabeth’s and Jack’s poems why not come along? She will be pleased to see you. We are hoping for a better turn out as the neighbouring stall will be offering Face Painting among other things and there will be free mince pies.

The books make ideal stocking fillers and if you wish to purchase copies go to www.silverburnpublishing.co.uk where you can buy them at the click of a button.

Barking At Nothing cover image

I’m sure Jack wont mind if I interrupt normal service to announce the arrival of my own book of poems for children.  The book is being sold in aid of a children’s charity, The Donna Louise Children’s Hospice Trust in Staffordshire, UK.

With strong rhythms and rhymes the poems look at life from a child’s point of view and are sure to be enjoyed by young children, their parents and grandparents alike. They just ask to be read out loud. A final section on Things To Do, with ideas to encourage children to have a go themselves, will make the book a useful classroom tool for Primary School teachers.

The book will be published on 1st June 2010 and orders are being taken now. Please see my website for further information and to place an order: www.silverburnpublishing.co.uk  

Normal service will be resumed next time!
