Writing Corner: Children's Books

Updated: Oct 3, 2020

With school back in session either at home or in the classroom, and summer reading programs officially over, I thought I would share some of my favorite children's books from Instagram with our listeners. Tune into the podcast tonight at 6 pm EST to also hear from some young authors who recently published their first book.

Listeners will hear us mention these children's authors, writers, and more on tonight's podcast. However, here are their links so you may like, follow, and share beforehand.

Our featured author(s) this Writing Corner Wednesday wrote a book titled Stand: The Hooded Book 1. Written by Francis Booker and Michael Ragusa Stand is another great fantasy read for young adults and kids.

Authors Francis Booker & Michael Ragusa

A description of the book, available on Amazon for purchase reads, "The Kingdom of Regostia is protected by a powerful group known as the Hooded. Whether it’s reconnaissance, strategy, or combat, the Hooded have trained to be able to tackle every issue that the kingdom faces. But what they’re most known for is their use of morar, an energy that can be shaped to allow the Hooded to complete superhuman feats."

Francis and Michael both have a pretty incredible story when it comes to self-publishing. We hope you will tune in to hear more about their book, the process to be self-published, and how they overcame obstacles in their way.
