Hi Readers,

I looked in the blog archives for my post of exactly one year ago, for #Thanksgiving. I am re-using the same coloring page, of the first Thanksgiving, complete with pilgrims and Native Americans, just to get into the spirit. Personally, I’m thankful for my beautiful big and healthy granddaughter Isabelle, born just last week. I’ll be visiting her over Thanksgiving weekend, which should be loads of fun.

In my professional life, I’m thankful that I’m able to use whatever grey matter I have left to navigate that “old dogs, new tricks” route of educating myself. I’ve attended classes, workshops, the Society of Book Writers and Illustrators convention, and a Meetup group I joined called Phoenix Publishing and Book Marketing. They have an interesting daily blog with guest authors discussing writing, publishing and marketing.  Here’s the link:     My guest spot is the first of every month, hope you check it out!

Last year at this time I had just released my first i-Book, published by ZippyBrain. Here’s the link:   for “Jackson’s History Adventure”, which is only for i-Pads.  Now I’m thrilled to say the second book in the Jackson series, “Jackson’s Aviation Adventure” is doing well. You don’t need an i-Pad for this one, it works on Kindle. Here it is:

I’m busily entrenched in writing and illustrating a third book, this time a hard-cover one, to be released May 2015. It’s titled “ORANGUTAN: A Day in the Rainforest.” The fun never stops! Please “like” my business Facebook page, Rita Goldner Illustrations and Books, to see updates, new pages and leave comments.


Thanks, Rita
