We are a little fish in the publishing pond--actually, a grackle is a bird, not a fish. Anyway, we have a dream to help new authors and poets find their fins, er, wings.
Our zoo of books includes:
A coming-of-age novel by E. C. Flickinger. Some people think it's full of humor, but it also has many other stripes: teenage angst, social commentary, original poetry and even a picture or two--guess you could call it a zebra.
A children's book, The Very First Day Ever, by Sharon M. Devaney. Sharon's book (aka "The Owl") is unique in that it contains both a short story and poetry: a wise book for children to revisit again and again as they grow.
A children's book, When Bad Things Happen, written by Sharon M. Devaney and illustrated by E. C. Flickinger. Sharon's second book, intended for older children, ages 8-12, urges us to be the light that shines through the darkness that surrounds us today.
A children's book, Peacock in the Pine Tree, written by Sandra Cramer and illustrated by Jocelyn Cramer. The Cramer creation, "Peacock," celebrates all the wonders waiting for us in our own backyards.
A four generation art book, Two Dads, Two Daughters, shares the Flickinger / Wimberley family's love for art. The compilation, code name "Flamingo," includes the works of Paul H. Flickinger, Jr., E. C. Flickinger, Sarah F. Wimberley, and Olivia M. Wimberley.
So that's our story: fish, bird, zebra, owl, peacock, and flamingo.
We'd love to grow fast and help many more potential authors, so give us a shout; we're listening.
