Second Wind Creations To Launch Our Kickstarter Campaign Shortly

Second Wind Creations will start a Kickstarter campaign soon to fund hiring illustrators and publishing of the nine (9) remaining stories in the Miss Nana Wyshall B. Wright series of bedtime tales. We want to help narrow the diversity gap in publishing and in children’s books.

Stay tuned to learn how you can help us share our bedtime stories about diverse characters, where race isn’t the central theme in the storyline. Instead, the issues are those that all children are faced with such as: bullying, shyness, learning humility, self-esteem, coping with weight, following your destiny and more.

What readers see reflected in the Miss Nana Wyshall B. Wright series of bedtime stories is a multicultural world where it is normal for young people of different cultures and national heritages to play together and to have similar childhood dreams and ambitions.

We look forward to your support once the Kickstarter campaign launches. The next generation cannot afford to hate!

A FEW WORDS FROM THE AUTHOR

A FEW WORDS FROM THE AUTHOR

 

 

The story of Winall Wendall is about a friend I had in High School. He was very competitive but he wasn’t an athlete. He was a brain. He competed in any and every scholastic competition and always won. He made many enemies this way without intending to. We shared a couple of classes together every year and I admired him. It seemed that the second runner up was always the same person, me. We would study together, eat lunch together and often sit together at school assemblies. We were in the same Home Room and we were each other’s friend. In our senior year I won the school spelling contest and he won second place. It was something new for us both. You will need to read Winall Wendall to see what happened next. SMILE.

Today I spoke to a new friend who is from my old High School and she is writing novels. She and I were both cheerleaders but at different times. She knew my business partner as they were on the same cheerleading squad. See if you can identify me and my business partner in the picture posted.
