Book Publishers Day- January 16

Book Publishers Day- January 16

Do you remember back when there were only major and minor holidays? Nowadays, every day has something to be celebrated. Since Teddyfly has a publishing imprint, Book Publishers Day seemed like one we shouldn't pass up. To celebrate this day, we'd like you to check out some published authors who we think are working hard to promote entertainment, education and inspiration in the world of literacy. 

We had to narrow the list down to ten which made things kind of difficult but we hope you check out these talented authors and find one to support.

1. Jania Otey seeks to inspire young chefs to experience culinary from other cultures through her Kids and Culture Camp Cookbook: Vegan Cuisines from Around the World.

2. In Lost to Darkness; Enlightened by Grace, Laura Gabriela recaps the many events in her life which she found out of her control, including that of her 13-year-old son's death by suicide. Her journey through grief and lost then enlightenment found in Jesus provides hope even in the darkest of stories. All proceeds for this book are donated to Marshmallow's Hope and their efforts in suicide prevention.

3. Anthony Gantt writes to inspire readers of all ages but we're in love with the beautiful illustrations in his Hailey Marie series about a little princess who learns life lessons. 

4. Mireille Auxila writes a beautiful tale of a young woman who has her whole life planned until a single moment changes it all. Mending Maria: A Novella is a clean romance about finding who you are and the power of forgiveness.

5. Stacey Terry, wife of fallen police officer Detective Justin Terry, created her Camper picture book for kids to remember and keep alive all the things her husband enjoyed. This rhyming picture book is great for any outdoor loving child both young and old.

6. Living a Parable: Finding Lessons in Unlikely Experiences is a fun reminder that God can speak to us through the most unlikely of circumstances. Silvia Davis recaps the lessons she learned growing up in a Christian household with five children.

7. At seven years old, Ka'Maya Shanelle became an author on a mission. With her I Love Myself coloring workbook series, kids practice their handwriting while learning positive affirmations for every letter of the alphabet. 

8. In Continue in Hope: Only God Can Heal a Broken Heart, Shirley De Rego recounts three horrific moments that might have even the strongest of people crying for a way out. Her tale which is likened to that of a modern day Job reinforces the love and peace that only God can provide to a broken heart.

9. Gina Usufzy introduces young children to youth hockey through her Adventures with Maverick the Hockey Player picture book series.

10. Louise Rushing tells of how she developed a more intimate relationship with Jesus Christ after being diagnosed with ALS. Redeemed by the Blood is inspiring to anyone who is trying to push through life circumstances they did not wish for.

Maybe you can start a new Book Publishers Day tradition and find a new author to support every January 16.
