Posted by pamela mccoll on Monday, November 5, 2012,

All kids really want this Christmas is for their parents to stop smoking

More than half of children with a parent who smokes say that their one wish for Christmas is that their mum or dad give up smoking.

Kids say they would go without Christmas presents, give up their pocket money and complete their homework every night, if it meant their parents would quit their smoking habit.

I noticed in the news today that Kentucky is gearing up to further smoke- free legislation in 2013. It has been my
direction for some time to put energies into getting kids to not start. Einstein said it is easier to get started in anything than it is to get oneself out of anything.... I don't know the exact quote but you get the idea. Addiction can be a tricky concept to explain to an adult let alone a child but this is the conversation we need to develop in our social cure to tobacco use.

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.

Spent Easter Saturday morning checking out this site out of Australia. Love their graphics and hope they take a look at Twas as it is going to be available worldwide as Atlas has reps everywhere. I would like to write a guest blog on their site and hopefully someone will review it and help get the word out there about the loss of the pipe.  I had a call from Merry Makers yesterday and the reindeer toy sample is flying here for Monday. Then it will take months to get the little character made ...
