Get one of my Audiobooks for free!

This month my company, Music Audio Stories, has launched a children's drawing challenge! This is your chance to download one of my stories for free and submit a drawing of it, which will then be published on my website. I really love this idea. It's a great way to get kids involved. When I have visited nurseries and schools with my Storytime, they have been so excited to see their drawings online the next day. I would have loved something like this when I was a kid!

Sound like fun? Here's what to do...

Music Audio Stories - March Drawing Challenge
  1. Subscribe to get your free Audiobook here.
  2. Listen to the story with your child. Join in by marching to the music. Trust me, they'll love this!
  3. Encourage your child to create a drawing of the story. They can draw Sid the ant and/or any of the scenes in the story.
  4. Label the drawing with your child's first name and their age.
  5. Send us the drawing via Facebook, Google+ or Tweet us @musicaudiostory and we'll add the drawing to our Kids Corner making it part of our creative world forever!

Book Details here: March of The Ants

If there are any "big kids" out there who want to join in, please do! We welcome everyone's drawings.

Kids, nieces, nephews, grandchildren... everyone's invited to join in!

On Radio

This week my band was featured on radio and today, another one of my Audiobooks is being aired! I'm so happy to be part of Active Kids Radio. This will be the first time my story, 'Robert & Johnson's Space Adventure' will be featured on radio!

North Carolina based Radio Active Kids is a radio program for kids. But not just for kids - for everyone! They play intelligent kid's music for the young and the young at heart. Join host Sagan and the gang from 8-10am Saturday 10th March in an interactive show that explores all things kids. The show will feature cool kid-friendly tunes, storytelling and comedy! Requests and call-ins are a must! If you can't catch the show live, an archive will be available for 1 week after the broadcast date, starting on Sunday.

I am currently mixing and mastering my new story which will be revealed very soon. I'll keep you posted on news of it's release...

Keep warm,

A to Zen of Life

March plan...

Avoid negative sources, people, places and habits.
Believe in yourself.
Consider things from every angle.
Don't give up and don't give in.
Everything you're looking for lies behind the mask you wear.
Family and friends are hidden treasures, seek them and enjoy their riches.
Give more than you planned to.
Hang onto your dreams.
If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door.
Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.
Keep trying no matter how hard it seems.
Love yourself.
Make it happen.
Never lie, steal or cheat.
Open your arms to change, but don't let go of your values.
Practice makes perfect.
Quality not quantity in anything you do.
Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.
Stop procrastinating.
Take control of your own destiny.
Understand yourself in order to better understand others.
Visualize it.
When you lose, don't lose the lesson.
Xcellence in all your efforts.
You are unique, nothing can replace you.
Zero in on your target, and go for it.
