Hello and Welcome Readers and Friends,
“We are honored and excited to introduce to you our new children’s author we are promoting and a writer extraordinaire, James S. Martinez. He is pretty popular with the little kids these days, as he has just released two new children’s books and they are grabbing 5 star book reviews like crazy! He is also the owner of Helping Tales Publishing. There is much to learn about this wonderful author, so how about we get right to it with a wee bit more about him” . . .
About The Author:
James S. Martinez was born in December of 1963 on Ramey, AFB in Puerto Rico. He attended Kent State University and was awarded an MS in Biomedical Sciences in 2001. He has been an avid reader and dedicated volunteer for many years and believes wholeheartedly that “One person can make a difference”. It’s with this belief in mind that he and co-founder Timothy T. Civick, created Helping Tales Publishers.
Helping Tales Publishers has committed to making reading have a positive impact on the world by “helping those in need, one story at a time”. In order to accomplish this mission, Helping Tales Publishers writes and produces entertaining, empowering, and educational books that teach empathy, compassion and service to the community to children of all ages.
James Martinez is a freshman author with two books in print, Patches’ Awesome Day and Diamonds in the Ruff. Each book is written in a whimsical tone with rhyming verse. The simple and fun stories are paired with beautiful illustrations created by Timothy T. Civick that captivate and enchant the reader. These books also serve the purpose of raising funds to aid various charities across the country. A quote from Diamonds in the Ruff summarizes why Helping Tales Publishers was created.
“If there’s a need, help the cause,
Whether you help people or those with paws.
By helping one, you help us all.
Take up the fight and heed the call!”
“Please be on the lookout for more books from James S. Martinez and Helping Tales Publishers.”
So I asked James a couple of questions about his writing and being a children’s author. Here is what he had to say about both.
1.) How did you begin to write children’s books?
“I got into writing children’s books to help my shelter by having fun books that talked about animals and that would teach wonderful lessons and donating a portion of the proceeds to charity. After looking at the different books that were available, I decided on a “Dog” book that would entertain and teach.
I always loved Dr. Seuss books so I adopted a rhyming scheme to keep the stories fun and easy to read. My goal is to help kids learn great lessons while having fun and empowering them to make a positive difference in the world.”
2.) What has been the most exciting event or experience for you since becoming a writer and published author?
The most exciting event was probably when I released my book, “The Most Incredible Journey: A Pibble’s Path” and I was at the Pit Bull event that we launched the book at. I had lots of people stop by and thank me for writing such a great advocacy book and how the book was so heartwarming and painted the breed in a wonderful light. I was wonderful to see how my book could be used to educate about a cause and entertain but most of all, we were able to donate from the proceeds from the event charity.
James is an advocate of many issues. Animals, Animal Shelter & Rescue, Teaching Children, Bullying and more! And he uses his books as a teaching aid for parents, so they can talk about tough life events & lessons with in a lighter way with their small children. So here is more about the two New Books. I urge you again to visit his wonderful website over at Helping Tales! It has all his books listed to purchase and the colors, illustrations and characters are adorable.
