Reminder of Love

February 10th, 2012 Stephen C. Healy

It has been a great hiatus from this blog, but I would much rather offer rich content than filler. Reading to my son tonight from one of my longtime favorite books, I was reminded of what it means to love. Now, there are several stories that attempt to breach the subject of love as if it were a subject. Beside the The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein, the greatest testimony to love that I have seen in children’s literature is in The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams. Read the rest of this entry »

1-14First Look at the Tear that Heals

Many have inquired as to this most intriguing story that we have been mentioning for nearly a year now. Well, we are happy to announce that it will be released this year! Mid February, there will be a movie of the tale on youtube and on this website to promote the publication.

The Healing Tear is the story of a teardrop that has lost its face in the world. The tale deals with longing, change and the search for understanding. Although it is not a sad story, you may develop some happy tears.

It is Better to Give, And Receive

March 12th, 2009 Stephen C. Healy

The Easter season has arrived and this year with a flourish of good weather! It truly is appropriate to celebrate this holiday in the spring. In the inspiration of this time of year, we are delighted to announce a fundraising effort for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).

When you buy any book from this website, we will contribute a third of the profits directly to the JDRF!!! This foundation is in need of your help. Everyday, people of all ages are diagnosed with diabetes and thousands more go undiagnosed. By buying these books, you will not only get incredibly high quality books, but you will be helping us get one step closer to curing diabetes.

This fundraiser lasts until the end of April, although efforts to help the JDRF will be ongoing thereafter. So please, pass along this website, buy some great books, and let’s raise diabetes funding to an amount that can really push progress.

Remember, “It is better to give than to receive”, but now you have the ability to do both.

A Show of Thanks

November 25th, 2008 Stephen C. Healy

The Southern Christmas Show is an annual tradition, which even in these hard economic times was celebrated cheerfully this year. This was Sleep Tight Tonight’s first appearance at the show, but it was a great chance to introduce our works of children’s literature. It was a pleasure to meet each of you who stopped by the booth. I would like to thank you for the conversations we had and a special thanks to those who supported Sleep Tight Tonight with the purchase of our products!

Many of you were excited to hear about our next book, The Healing Tear. It is scheduled to be completed before the end of this year, although after Christmas. We are especially excited about this project, as we hope you will check back in to read the story online. Many of you were surprised that we offer our new books to be read online, which no other publisher to my knowledge allows you to do. We are not hiding anything! Our books are quality made, from the writing to the illustrations. And we print the books in North Carolina, so there is no compromise on the physical manufacturing of the books. We are confident that you will enjoy the books so much that you will order them online as well.

Thank you again for making the Southern Christmas Show a success!
