Childhood Cancer Month

From the editor's desk:

This month is Childhood Cancer Month, a month that brings about awareness for those children who are fighting this challenging disease.

Samson's Tale, which will be available from Story Pie Press in early 2011, is an amazing story about a dog and his boy...a dog who loves his boy so much, he won't leave his side.  This boy, named Daniel, goes through all the seasons of changes that cancer brings about.  And his dog, Samson, is there to see him through it all, with licks, nuzzles, strength, love, and more.  These two best buds can get through anything together, even cancer.

In honor of Childhood Cancer Month, Story Pie Press would like to share a few "top secret" inside pictures of the book for you to preview.

Now just wait until you read this story called Samson's Tale, written by Carla Mooney and illustrated by Kathleen Spale

The Day I Met The Nuts Reviewed by Allergic Living Magazine

Allergic Living Magazine gave a fabulous review of The Day I Met The Nuts in their Fall 2010 issue under Page Turners.  Here are some highlights:

"...a captivating  book about a boy and the day of his first nut reaction.  The illustrations are delightful... A bonus: the publisher is contributing 45 per cent of the book's profits to food allergy research."

Earth Day Publishing is now Story Pie Press

No matter how you serve the story, if it's good, it's great!  Are you wondering what I'm talking about?  Well, here's the scoop... Earth Day Publishing is now Story Pie Press.  I'm actually liking our new company name even better than the old one, despite what brought us to the point of making a change.  To fill you in, a rather large organization wanted to fight us over our company name.  Instead of putting time and a great deal of money into battling it out, we decided to change our name and focus on publishing meaningful books.  After all, that's what we set off to do...create books for children...books that warm the heart and feed the soul delicious stories.  Who wants to fight?  Not me.  I'd rather bake stories.  Wouldn't you? 

Let us know your thoughts about the name change.  

Happy imagining, everyone!
