Luisa the Green Sea Turtle

It’s out! It’s out!

Book 01

The book that started as a whisper and became a dream is now reality. Here’s the email I sent friends this morning:

I am ecstatic and overwhelmed. I am also in a bit of shock. The book I ran through my brain several years ago is PUBLISHED!!!

The book is Luisa the Green Sea Turtle, a bilingual “read-to” book for 1st to 3rd graders (although my grandniece who just finished 1st grade can read much of it on her own.) It’s about Luisa who gets trapped, faces being turned into soup, but is set free.

It’s available on Amazon at this link: https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=emilie+vardaman

Or, you can simply log onto Amazon, enter ‘emilie vardaman’ and get to the book that way.

If you have young ones in your life or are simply inclined to make a purchase, I’m asking folks to do so on Monday, July 2. If impossible, try to do so on the 3rd.

 The idea is if a lot of people buy on the same day, the book goes, however briefly, to the top of the sales chart and then is closer to the top of a search page at Amazon. So if you’d like to make a purchase, please do it on July 2. 

THANK YOU!!! 

Luisa’s illustrator (my super duper fabulous #1 niece Jessie Stout) and I are so excited we’re  having champagne! We’re 1700 miles apart but coordinating the champagne.

  2. I look forward to when I’m online in the night – (presently i’m at a park ) so i can better appreciate what you’ve done.. i had wondered if i was missing your posts, and now i see what you’ve been doing!!! it looks like a great story, and the timing is perfect with more people awakening about our planet, and i suspect that your story will be one told with loving sensitivity!

    1. And I have two more books in the works!
      Part of why I haven’t written is simple: I didn’t feel I had anything to say. The small things for kids, yes, but that’s all. Now I have a few more posts in the works, too. On a binge, here!

  3. Emilie, I’ve been hanging back for awhile and am just now seeing this, and I’m so happy for you! What an accomplishment, and I hope it sells like crazy. Wonderful news.

    1. Thanks, me too!
      I just did an event today with women who, once a month, all buy copies of the same book. One woman then takes them all and does a Reading Circle with kids in town. Each child leaves with a copy of the book they read. They chose Luisa because it’s bilingual and by a local author.
