OC Publishing children’s book will launch in two languages



Author Angela Jeffreys
I'm so excited to share that I've been working on a children's book with a new author that will launch on October 4, during Mi’kmaw History Month. Angela Jeffreys’ first children’s book titled, The Purple Frog, will be published in both English and in Mi’kmaw. The book was translated by Dr. Bernie Francis, a linguist from Membertou First Nation in Cape Breton, NS.

“I have always felt a connection to the aboriginal cultures and am excited to have my book translated into Mi’kmaw and to provide copies to reserve schools throughout Nova Scotia,” said Jeffreys. 

It’s a story of a smart, purple frog named Hubert who is bullied for being different. The author came up with the idea one night several years ago when she was putting her then five-year-old daughter, Amber, to bed and Amber asked her to make up a bedtime story.

“I wondered what I could do that would be completely different from all her other storybooks,” Angela told me. “And suddenly, a purple frog just popped into my mind.”

Jeffreys says her daughter loved the story so much that she asked for it every night for about six months. “So, the story just grew from there. There wasn’t a single word that I had to come up with. As I told it, it just came to me.”

As the story progresses, Hubert continues to sprout green spots and realizes eventually he will be green like everyone else. He would no longer be unique or special and that makes him even sadder.

“I hope that children who hear the story learn that we all have something special about ourselves and sometimes it’s tough to be different but that’s ok,” said Jeffreys who does healing work. “In my work I help people embrace who they are, so they can grow and evolve into their best self,” said Jeffreys.

Jeffreys is also the publisher of Wheel of Life, a lifestyle magazine that launched in the spring of 2018 and features motivating and inspiring stories of real people.

The Purple Frog will be available at online retail stores and in select book stores. I'll share links as we get closer to launch day. For more information visit www.ocpublishing.ca/angela-jeffreys.html.

Adverbs & Cliches in a Nutshell - Guest Post by Jessica Bell

Too many adverbs and clichés in your writing? I've got just the fix for you. by Jessica Bell Writers constantly have rules thrown at them left, right, and center. Show, don’t tell! Stop using so many dialogue tags! More sensory detail! More tension! Speed up the pace! Yada yada yada ... it can become overwhelming, yes? I used to feel overwhelmed by it all too. In fact, I still do sometimes. It’s hard enough to get the words on the page, let alone consider how to put them there. In Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird , she says that in order not to be overwhelmed, a writer needs to focus on short assignments. She refers to the one-inch picture frame on her desk and how that little picture frame reminds her to focus on bite-sized pieces of the whole story. Basically, if you focus on one small thing at a time, the story will eventually come together to create a whole. I believe the same applies to learning the craft of writing. If writers focus on one aspect of the craft at a time, t
