What’s Your Writing Story


I got another BIG Idea. 💡

I am inviting Indie Children’s Book Authors to my table. Stories Served Around The Table will now feature a weekly (or bi-weekly or somewhat regular) guest blogger spotlight on indie children’s book authors.

I am calling it What’s Your Writing Story? #whatsyourwritingstory. The featured author will share a piece of their current book’s journey and I will post it on my Stories Served Around The Table blog, the News to Nosh Newsletter and social media platforms—Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. 

❓❓❓Why? Why? Why? ❓❓❓

Authors need to grow their presence and engage audiences. Social media and newsletters are terrific avenues to hone a brand and make an impression. The best way to expand an author’s circle is to join other circles. Authors, join my table. Lucky Readers, learn about up-and-coming children’s book authors. We all win.  

Author Guidelines 📋

Pitch your article to me and we set a date. Send me a 400-700 word article, sharing a part of your book’s journey. If the article was previously published, please site the where and when it was published. Please send a book cover and a headshot in jpeg or png format, a short bio and book description, and links where fans can find you and buy your book. If needed, I can provide you with topic prompts and questions to get you started. Please keep the content and comments clean and kind. To make this work, you must share, share, share the posts in your sphere. Please respond to all the comments. Use the hashtag #whatsyourwritingstory.

Readers Guidelines 📚

What’s Your Writing Story? Will post on a Thursday in Stories Served Around The Table, Stories Served Around The Table News to Nosh Newsletter on the following Monday, and share across my Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts. Find What’s Your Writing Story with the hashtag #whatsyourwritingstory. Be sure to like and share. If you buy a featured author’s book, please review it and share your review with me. 

There is a treasure trove of children’s books out in the world. I know how hard it is to choose just the right book for our youngsters, and I experience firsthand how difficult it is for indie children’s book authors to stand out. I hope that What’s Your Writing Story may help both authors and readers find what they need.

Hope you are hungry. Becoming America’s Food Stories recalls the tales that have been told around my family’s dinner table. The histories explain the motivations over bowls of macaroni, antics play out while slurping soup, and laughter echoes throughout the dining room. Pull up a seat. There’s always room.
The Heart of Bakers and Artists is set in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, 1911. The story follows nine-year-old Lily, an American-born child of Sicilian immigrants, who wants to prove she is not a little kid. To be a big kid in the crowded tenement neighborhoods, she must tackle bigotry, bullies, disasters, dotty bakers, and learn to cross the street by herself
The Dreams of Singers and Sluggers picks up where The Heart of Bakers and Artists left off.Lily has big dreams to sing out with her powerful voice, but must do EVERYTHING, since Mama fell into a deep depression, the baby is sick, and the “Black Hand” terrorizes the neighborhood, threatening her chance to sing at the New York Highlanders Fourth of July baseball game.
