Bloomington, IN, May 23, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- iUniverse, the leading book marketing, editorial services, and supported self publishing company, is featuring author Bruce Lord in its monthly podcast.
Lord’s book Humpty Dumpty was Pushed is a collection of funny and strange short stories intended for children. Lord said he understands the struggle many parents have keeping their children reading and hopes this book will promote childhood literacy. A professional storyteller, he and wife Elizabeth Richards, wrote the book to keep children interested and engaged.
“They’re ruthless,” Lord said, “You can never talk down to kids. That’s a huge mistake.”
Lord and Richards also wanted to deliver a subtle moral to their young readers through the stories in Humpty Dumpty was Pushed.
“Within [the stories] is the power of friendship, the importance of joy, and the value of communities,” Lord said, “and the message that love and hope are just as important in the 21st century.”
A top iUniverse seller, particularly in the Canadian market, Humpty Dumpty was Pushed has been well-received by teachers, parents, and children. Lord said he and Richards get a lot of satisfaction from receiving letters from readers.
“It’s one of the most joyous things I’ve ever experienced,” Lord said, “You never know who may be talking about your book around the world.”
Lord and Richards will sign copies of Humpty Dumpty was Pushed at Book Expo America, at the Jacob Javitts Center in New York City, Saturday, May 29 from 10-11 a.m. ET at Table 27.Click
