Happy Friday everyone! Today I’m going to highlight some titles for the young and young at heart!
First up my little kitty story, Cecilia’s Tale, is currently 99 cents on Amazon. The book which features watercolor art from local St. Louis artist and friend Victoria Szulc is based off the true story of how my kitty, Cecilia found me in Jerusalem. Sadly Cecilia crossed the rainbow bridge several years ago but her memory lives on in this picture book available in Kindle, paperback and audio book.
Bonus just for readers of this blog — hop over to Story Origin and pick a free audio review copy of Cecilia’s Tale.
