FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Hartland, Maine (January 28, 2013)

GOOD NEWS: There’s a new book out that will inspire kids to meet challenges with patience and persistence.

“I can say without hesitation that [AMAZING MATILDA] is a well written book filled with excitement and adventure.” (dwgodby) Read the full review at http://dwgodby.blogspot.com/2012/07/amazing-matilda-monarchs-tale.html

Matilda becomes discouraged when she is unable to fly during the early stages of her metamorphosis. But, this ‘Amazing Monarch’ never gives up on her dream. Unlike her friends, Matilda doesn’t want to leap onto ledges or bound across fields, she only wants to fly. Matilda’s friends laugh at her because she doesn’t have any wings. They wonder: How can a creature without wings ever hope to fly? While Matilda progresses from egg to butterfly, her friends recall how they felt before they were able to do all of the things they had dreamed of doing. Encouraged by her friends, Matilda learns that if she keeps trying, she can do anything that she really wants to do.

Stevens says, “Matilda’s story is everyone’s story. Meeting the everyday challenges of life at every stage of life is no easy task. Matilda and her friends encourage readers and listeners to meet those challenges. Whether we read this children’s book ourselves or listen to it while sitting on a loved one’s lap, AMAZING MATILDA is a story that never grows old or gets outgrown.”

Odyssey of a Novice Writer

Aspiring novelist. Avid reader of fiction. Reviewer of books. By day, my undercover identity is that of meek, mild-mannered legal assistant, Kate Loveton, working in the confines of a stuffy corporate law office; by night, however, I'm a super hero: Kate Loveton, Aspiring Novelist and Spinner of Tales. My favorite words are 'Once upon a time... ' Won't you join me on my journey as I attempt to turn a hobby into something more?
