There’s a new book in the world! My 11th picture book is now available!
The GET AWAY DANCE takes on a serious subject of what you should do if someone tries to take you away. I know, it’s a very serious and scary subject. As a writer, I believe in the power of words and education.
My generation grew up with Stop, Drop, & Roll, Just Say No to Drugs, Stranger Danger. I felt the empowerment of knowing what to do when a scary situation may have occurred.
After seeing someone trying to kidnap a child on the local news one night, I got to thinking what that child did right. Then I realized there was a need for others to know what to do, in case something like that happened to them.
Thus… The GET AWAY DANCE was born.
I hope to encourage parents to reinforce Stranger Danger to their children as well as include the Get Away Dance techniques to better equip their children in case someone tries to kidnap them.
The GET AWAY DANCE is published by Guardian Angel Publishing. Illustrated by Jack Foster.
I’m in interrupting my normal posts in a way… Well, this news does go beyond the book. Or actually before the book! 😁
Many times you’ll see a small article announcing a book deal in a magazine. But did you know there are hundreds of deals that do not get mentioned. Many small publishing houses do not get a listing. Those deals are big too. After all, every book that comes into this world is someone’s dream. When you hold a book, you are holding hundreds of hours of work, a dream, a piece of someone. I think all of those deserve to be celebrated, don’t you?
So without further ado….
Picture book author,Tracey M. Cox has sold her rights to Guardian Angel Publishing for what will be her 11th picture book. The book will be illustrated by Jack Foster, who also has multi-books. This will be the second book Tacey and Jack have collaborated on.
THE GET AWAY DANCE is a picture book that addresses a very sensitive subject, but will empower children. What to do if a stranger tries to take you away? The story will reinforce Stranger Danger techniques. Then it describes what a child should do if the worse happens. What should you do if you do everything right, and yet someone tries to take you? You do THE GET AWAY DANCE!
Thank you everyone for coming over to hear my news! I’m super excited and cannot wait to see the amazing illustrations Jack does!
