Local Author Publishes First Novel

 

Local Author Publishes First Novel

Todays post is written by Melissa Loggins. Melissa owns Music Authority.

You already know me as Melissa Loggins, owner of Music Authority. However, I have an alter ego, Anne Schlea. (Taken from my middle and maiden name.) Below follows a press release from my publisher involving a novel that I have just published.

Vampire discovers inner strength after being forced to grow up in ‘Retribution’ Anne Schlea announces publication of new Southern paranormal fantasy

Beginning as a collection of short stories, “Retribution” (published by Archway Publishing) by Anne Schlea grew to a full length novel over a number of years. In the novel, Antonia Paige has been ripped out of vampire retirement, and she’s not happy about it.

Everyone in her life agrees Antonia was given control of her family’s clan when she was far too young. Wanting to escape from the responsibility after a couple hundred years of trying to lead the family, Antonia vanishes. Intent on curing herself of the vampire virus, Antonia studies at a small Georgia college to work toward her goal.

Wanting to lead the clan himself, her brother Richard tracks her down determined to murder her. However, an old lover is waiting for an opportunity to rescue her – but Antonia doesn’t want to be saved, she wants to prove herself.

“This book has a strong female protagonist when many books in this genre are male-centric. Antonia is strong, she has flaws, and she is on a journey of self-discovery; something I feel many of my readers will be able to connect with,” Schlea says.

Young Adults Get Free Job Interview And Resume Help At Library

Young Adults Get Free Job Interview And Resume Help At Library

Young adults entering the workforce will get tips on preparing a well-written resume and learn how to present themselves during interviews at a free workshop with Arpana Satyu-Burge, local entrepreneur and co-owner of Dutch Monkey Doughnuts, and other human resources professionals at the Cumming Library on Wednesday, November 1 at 6:30pm.

The workshop is part of Forsyth County Public Library’s “Adulting 101” series to help young adults prepare for living independently. The series launched in January and helps young adults educate themselves about practical things like creating a monthly budget, shopping for car and health insurance, purchasing or renting a home, repairing seams or lost buttons to extend the life of their clothes, and even how to shop for the most nutritious yet least expensive groceries.

“Local universities and trade schools will award diplomas and certifications to students at the end of the semester next month, and those new graduates can apply what they’ve learned at this Adulting 101 workshop to begin their job search with confidence,” says Jennifer Forbes, Information Services Supervisor at the Cumming Library and the program’s organizer.

Leaders from the library’s own human resources department will also join the panel with Satyu-Burge to talk with participants about the qualities employers are looking for in a good resume. The panel will also speak about managing your online persona and how employers might consider anything posted online or on social media networks when deciding if an applicant is a good fit for a position.

“It helps to consider yourself ‘employed’ in job seeking. Make it your job to educate and train yourself on the things you can do to improve your chances of being noticed and being hired,” says Human Resources Manager Susan Thornton, who will speak on what new applicants can generally expect in the interview and hiring process.

Participants will also learn the most effective ways to prepare for in-person interviews.

“Local employers are looking for commitment, enthusiasm, and a willingness to learn. Those seem to be the key traits of a productive, long-term team member,” says Satyu-Burge, who will speak about ways job seekers can demonstrate those traits during an interview.

This Diwali Celebration is part of the library’s One World Forsyth series that highlights geography, cultural traditions and celebrations from around the world. The series is sponsored by the FCPL Friends & Advocates.

Participants can expect to immerse themselves in the customs and traditions of Diwali at this year’s celebration, says Joyce.

Admission to the program is free and all ages and cultures are welcome.

Later in the afternoon, Star Wars fans are invited to dress up as their favorite characters and meet members of the Georgia 501st Legion at Star Wars Reads Day at the Cumming Library.

“Star Wars Reads is a month-long celebration of epic stories and galactic adventures,” says Julie Boyd, Youth Services Supervisor at the Cumming Library.

Children, teens, and adults can get in on the fun by dressing in costume, joining in Star Wars-themed games, crafts, and Sphero droid races, checking out Star Wars books or graphic novels, and jumping into a photo with costumed characters from the Georgia 501st Legion.

“The 501st Legion is a group of volunteers who participate in public events dressed in amazingly realistic costumes. Their participation in this program is exciting for our patrons and we are so pleased to welcome them back to the library this year. This is the program you’re looking for!” adds Boyd.

Admission to Star Wars Reads Day is free and all ages are welcome to attend.

Four Authors Help Aspiring Writers At Cumming Library

 

 

Four Authors Help Aspiring Writers At Cumming Library

Local writers aspiring to publish their work can get free advice from four authors at free Forsyth Writes Together events this fall at the Cumming Library.

On Thursday, October 5 at 6:30 p.m., author and naturalist Mark Warren will speak and sign copies of his book Secrets of the Forest Vol. 1: The Magic and Mystery of Plants and the Lore of Survival.

“Local writers will want to hear about the time Warren spent with the Cherokee people researching lore, gathering source material, and learning survival skills that add realistic detail to the Secrets of the Forest series and to his memoir, Two Winters in a Tipi,” explains Branch Manager Denise Leeson.

Warren also wrote the forthcoming Adobe Moon, the first in the Wyatt Earp, an American Odyssey trilogy of historical fiction published by Five Star, an imprint of Gale.

On Thursday, November 16 at 6:30 p.m., authors Susan Jimison, Ray Chandler, and Daniel Lovelace will gather to share their experiences researching, writing, and publishing soldier stories.

Jimison is a supporter of organizations for veterans and author of Through the Eyes of a Tiger: The John Donovan Story, a work of WWII military non-fiction released in 2015 by Deeds Publishing.

Chandler is a journalist and Scripps News correspondent, as well as the author of The Last Days of the Confederacy in Northeast Georgia, a non-fiction account of the last days of the Civil War in northeast Georgia published by The History Press, an imprint of Arcadia Publishing.

Lovelace is a former political science professor and senior intelligence analyst, as well as the author of Tory Spy: A New York Frontier Family’s War Against the American Revolution, an account events leading to the capture and execution of Loyalist Thomas Loveless published by Heritage Books.

Following their presentations, the panel of authors will take questions from the audience. Participants may also purchase autographed books directly from the authors at the event.

“Each of these authors’ books capture the sense of uncertainty faced by both soldiers and ordinary citizens during three different wars,” says Leeson. “Aspiring writers can take their advice, research tips, and writing processes and adapt them to improve the settings, imagery, and dialogue to make their own stories come alive for readers.”

The Forsyth Writes Together series is designed to connect experienced authors with local writers and, like other services provided by Forsyth County Public Library, participation in these writing workshops is free.

“Libraries offer so much support for writers. We provide free resources like online writing tutorials, research databases and reference materials, and we even host groups for writers to share their ideas or work-in-progress and receive constructive feedback from their peers,” explains Leeson.

In addition to the Forsyth Writes Together series for adults and the Teen Writers Club at the Cumming Library, the Post Road Library also hosts a semi-monthly writing group for adults and a monthly group for teens moderated by The Last Monster author Ginger Garrett.

For more information on the Forsyth Writes Together series or other writing groups at the library, please visit www.forsythpl.org.

New Kindermusik Studio Opens in Cumming, Georgia

Kindermusik uses award-winning, research-based curricula and world-class educators to provide engaging musical learning experiences during the years most critical to brain development.

After completing a comprehensive training program that incorporates education in child development and music concepts from Kindermusik International, Erica Culbertson has received her Kindermusik license and has opened a studio named Growing Musicians LLC in Cumming. (Classes are held at Cumming First United Methodist Church.) Now trained to tap into the different developmental stages and learning styles of children, Culbertson is poised to bring the power and joy of music-based learning to the children and families of Forsyth County, and make available the long-lasting and far-reaching benefits to all areas of development – physical, cognitive, social and emotional. Culbertson says, “In addition to the full-brain benefits Kindermusik offers, classes are playful and fun — allowing children and their parents or caregivers to socialize and make friends.”

Kindermusik Cumming Georgia

Since 1978, more than two million families in over 70 countries have enjoyed Kindermusik music and movement classes, beginning as early as their first infant months. Classes involve a mixture of singing, instrument play, dancing and movement, storytime, and other activities that help young children and their families discover how music can enrich their lives and build a strong foundation for a lifetime love of learning.

Psychologists, neuroscientists, and experts in early childhood development have demonstrated that music does more for children than bring them joy; it helps their brain make the connections needed for virtually every kind of intelligence. Kindermusik’s curriculum is built on this research.

Kindermusik Cumming Georgia

A few key benefits to the classes:
• Activities are designed to develop and strengthen a child’s physical and neural functions, social-emotional skills, early literacy, early math, and much more.
• The style of the class allows for parent/child bonding moments. This bonding boosts learning. Music and movement classes can spark learning in young children, and when done in conjunction with a parent, can help build bonds between parent and child.
• Parents are granted access to Kindermusik Online to continue the musical play and learning at home or on-the-go, as well as provide valuable resources for great parenting.

Kindermusik Cumming Georgia

“Kindermusik classes give parents the opportunity to engage in safe, fun and developmentally appropriate music-and-movement experiences with children ages newborn to seven,” said Scott Kinsey, President of Kindermusik International. “Our educators are our most vital asset to the success of Kindermusik, and we welcome Erica to our Kindermusik community.”

According to a 2005 Harris Interactive poll, 99 percent of Kindermusik parents would recommend the program to other parents. Parents are encouraged to enroll or try a preview class at the new Kindermusik.
