C. Fulsty Books will be running an event tent at Littleton, Colorado‘s 89th annual Western Welcome Week!
I will be sharing a tent with Joseph Caldara, the author of Bob and the Cyber-Llama. My illustrator, Shanilee Fields may even stop by! If you want some autographs, books, just have a chat, be sure to stop on by and say hi to everyone! Remember, all profits will be going to CURE Childhood Cancer and Canines for Disabled Kids as we will be in the middle of our first ever Donation Month.
If you want to stop by, we will be in Downtown Littleton, Colorado on Main Street between Curtice Street and S. Rapp on August 19th from 8am to 5 pm. We all hope to see you there!
C. Fulsty Books has teamed up with CURE Childhood Cancer & Canines for Disabled Kids. For the month of August 2017, C. Fulsty Books will be donating 100% of profits on our four children’s picture books. Blake and the Turtles, The Little Cloud, How High Can You Jump and the Not So Bad Christmas Stocking are the books that when purchased, every penny that is profit will go to charity. The profits will be split evenly with 50% going to CURE Childhood Cancer and 50% going to Canines for Disabled Kids.
If you want to help, go buy a C. Fulsty book and with every purchase you will be donating to both of these great charities.
Thank you again to CURE Childhood Cancer and Canines for Disabled Kids for partnering up with us for this event!
On May 6th from 5-8pm (MST) I will be joining Michelle Dennise for her “Cover Reveal Party.” There will be other indie authors all going promotions, giveaways and other fun activities. For example, if the Facebook page “Michelle Dennise – Cover Reveal Party” gets 200 people attending, I will dance during my segment. I will also allow everyone attending to choose the dance I do. The Macarena, the Hokey Pokey, Thriller, the Groot Dance, you choose.
So don’t miss out on any of the fun! Enjoy all the authors that will be there:
I love working with kids! They don’t judge, they just want to have fun and learn. Some have had tough lives and don’t even understand they have. Some have fought against the worst, and still have a smile. Kids are incredible and I believe they get pushed aside and forgotten because, “they have the rest of their lives for that.” Adults don’t think about a child’s childhood only lasts for a short while, and how many of us wish our childhood lasted longer? Some kids didn’t even get one.
Next time you see a child, remember that they can grow into inspiration for the world, or another weight to bring it down.
I hope my work with kids and my books will inspire every child who has a rough childhood, a tough fight, or a regular childhood. I want to help them grow into inspiration.
C. Fulsty books will change the world. Whether it’s through books, donations, visits, or through a single child.
Every book I’ve written and will write, will have a deep meaning and a lesson to teach each child to help shape the world. Kids need guidance on how to be good people and how to have strength in themselves in order to change the world for a better future. Dr. Seuss inspired me, and I want to inspire another to continue the change.
This is just a quick though I had while editing, “The Man with the Tall Shoes.” However, that book will have a great lesson along these lines, just like every other book I write.
About two weeks before Christmas, I stopped by Children’s Hospital’s main campus in Colorado to drop off an illustration I had made. I don’t have much money so I thought donating something that wouldn’t cost me much could bring joy and hopefully a few smiles to the children there.
As soon as I got there and entered the hospital, I noticed how beautiful and amazing it looked. It was so colorful and open. After asking the receptionist where to go, I walked on back to the donation office of the hospital. I only got about 5 steps away from the receptionists desk when I saw a little girl that hit me hard. She was walking through the middle of the hospital entrance. Walking on crutches, with her mom or someone there to assist her in case she falls. The girl had to have been about 12-14 years old, with a bald head, but still had a smile on her face.
Just that one site, made me think about it for hours, days, weeks, and even the last month. That one girl, who’s probably fighting a battle that I will never know how tough it is, made such an impact on me and we never even spoke. I don’t even know that girl’s name, but if my illustration can put a smile on even one child’s face that is fighting a battle like that, it will be worth every minute I spent on it.
I will begin on a new idea along with the words below.
To all the kids out there, don’t ever judge someone before you understand them. Even a bad guy, is a bad guy for a reason. Don’t ever so asking why, and when you so getting the answer to your why, go find the answers after that. Never stop understanding!
Some times I just can’t take people around me. The older I’m getting the more I’m realizing I need to just keep close friends that have the same ideas and wants as me. I just can’t deal with certain immaturity, condescending people, and selfish people. I just need to get away from it.
