The Night Before Christmas
---By Clement C. Moore
1. Twas (It was ) the night before Christmas,
when all through the house,
not a creature was stirring,
not even a mouse.
2. The stockings were hung
by the chimney with care,
in hopes that St. Nicholas
soon would be there.
3. The children were nestled
all snug in their beds,
while visions of sugar plums
danced in their heads
4. And Mama in her kerchief,
and I in my cap,
had just settled down
for a long winter's nap.
When out on the lawn

Who Highjacked Santa ?

Posted by pamela mccoll on Friday, October 19, 2012,


Who highjacked Santa? The tobacco industry's commercial exploitation of Santa to sell cigarettes are worth raising when questions are asked about your adaptation of a classic.

http://bit.ly/Santa-Claus-Cig-Ads


Go to http://tobacco.stanford.edu/ and then Tobacco Advertising Thermes > Infants > Santa Puffing

Murad ads are dated 1920. Tareyton is from 1970 — so Santa imagery spans at least half a century of tobacco advertising.

Another way to find a set of Santa ads on this site, not quite as inc...

Printing on demand

Posted by pamela mccoll on Saturday, August 11, 2012,
I have printed this book in the old fashioned way - by the truck load and I have them in distribution channels across North Smerica the old fashioned way. Yes we printed with FSC paper and vegetable inks.  I met a woman last night at a reception who was a first time publisher who was going to print on demand. It is something I don't know alot about and I wonder how this works out financially for a writer or self publisher.  I find it not impossible but challenging to be a small publisher espe...

1)      Rango, Babar, Madeline, Curious George, Three Little Bears, Frosty the Snowman. They are amongst many popular children’s tales that reference or have been illustrated to reference smoking. Do the copyright owners of these works have a responsibility to sanitize their stories to rid them of any smoking references?  

 

 It is a question of doing what you believe is important and what you believe will make a difference – even if it is a small thing.  I believe we all have a role...
