Children’s Author Serena Brown Travis Launching Perfect Penny Positive Children’s Books

Beyond Publishing Author Serena Brown Travis is Proud to Announce her New Perfect Penny Positive Children’s Book Series for Kids Book One Launching April 18 Full story by M3NewMedia on PRWeb 4.11.17

Destined to become a classic, The Perfect Penny Children’s Book Series launching Spring 2017 by Author Serena Brown Travis is designed to help children build up their self-esteem in spite of grim circumstances and ultimately change their otherwise doomed perspectives into a positive mindset. Daughter of renowned motivational speaker Les Brown, Serena strategically intertwines disappointment and defeat with messages of encouragement and inspiration.

 

“Perfect Penny is assisting me in helping spread positivity into the lives of children and adults. You’ll love the tenacity of Perfect Penny. We can all learn from her!” Les Brown

“I’ve always heard, ‘Evil prevails when good men and women do nothing.’ I’ve always wanted to launch a series of motivational books for children helping them to develop positive self-esteem and a renewed outlook on life. While adults can recognize when they need a push or a jolt of motivation, I think children need characters and storylines they can identify with. Along with many parents, I needed more resources and positive readings for my two children and the Positive Penny Series of books will give parents and children motivational tools and strategies from an early age,” says Author Serena Brown Travis, as she proudly continues her father’s legacy.

School counselors especially love how the books tackle stronger subjects including homelessness, absentee parenting, and hunger while finding a glimmer of hope in each story. Serena is well on her way to reaching her goal of having an impact on the lives of children with the first three books being released this spring.

 

The younger Brown, with Empowerment Products, the name of her company launching the Perfect Penny brand says, “I plan to launch as many inspirational books as possible. The first three books feature Perfect Penny with all of her heart touching childhood hilarity and authenticity. School counselors especially love how the books tackle stronger subjects including parental neglect, homelessness, and absentee parenting while finding a glimmer of hope in each story. The Perfect Penny Positive Words print version was released in February with the E-book releasing on April 18th is now available for pre-order on Amazon for $1.99. Serena Brown Travis will be on WCMH Columbus channel 4 NBC in April to tell more about why she wrote Perfect Penny.

 

There are a number of book signings and media interviews planned. For the latest signings, readings and interviews watch the Author’s website at BeyondPublishing.net/AuthorSerenaBrownTravis and for media inquiries email serenambrown@aol.com.

 

Perfect Penny Positive Words is the first in the Perfect Penny Book Series; Inspired by the stories of Earl Nightengale, Napoleon Hill, W. Clement Stone, Zig Ziglar, Les Brown and many other great names in the personal development and self-help space. The author, having grown up in the personal development movement, long before it went mainstream and before anyone knew of “The Secret” or the “Law of Attraction” is excited to bring The Perfect Penny Positive Book Series to the world and believes it to be the perfect time!

 

 

SERIES SYNOPSIS

Perfect Penny is a unique kid. Perfect Penny experiences hard times, disappointments, and bullying, but she is strong and resilient. Perfect Penny finds light in dark situations. It’s Penny’s innocence that helps her deal with and answer life’s tough questions. Perfect Penny’s positive perspective will lift you up and give you confidence to take on life.

 

Despite her humble start in life Penny finds the resources that empower her to overcome adversity and bring positivity to her life affecting all of those around her with optimism and hope. Perfect Penny is destined to become a classic series for children and a favorite for parents and grandparents for story time, bed time, play time or any time.

Serena Brown Travis says, “We’ve decided to make the first e-book available for $1.99 to give everyone a chance to see what the excitement is about. The vibrant illustrations, the well written story features Penny, who was born in a dumpster finding the tools she needs to not only cope but spread positivity with everyone around by accepting the fact that she was born for greatness.” Publisher Michael D. Butler with Beyond Publishing says, we’ve published a number of children’s books but we are most excited about this series because it has a deeper purpose and global appeal. Children all over the world will benefit from reading this book and we are excited about leveraging The Perfect Penny Series around the globe from Australia, India, Canada, the UK and everywhere. Penny’s infectious spirit rubs off on those around her and opens the door for book #2 Perfect Penny – It’s Not Over Until We Win and book #3 Perfect Penny – My Different World. Books #1 and #2 are available now and book #3 will be released soon.”

 

ENDORSEMENTS

 

“You will love the innocence of Perfect Penny Brown. She has some pretty tough circumstances to deal with and she seems to always find a positive spin to her story. I believe we are all like Perfect Penny. Life can deal us some major hits, but if we use optimism and faith like Perfect Penny, in the end, we will be okay. If we use our imaginations and never let our situations get us down, like Perfect Penny Brown, we would think life doesn’t seem so bad. I know Perfect Penny Brown’s questions all too well; why was I born in an abandoned building on a floor? Why did my mother give me away? Am I trash? We all question our circumstances, but like Perfect Penny, I imagined a new life for myself and I created it. I am super excited and proud of my youngest daughter, Serena Brown Travis, on the creation of this character and book series. This will help your children get a Perfect Penny Brown perspective on life and help you, the adult, to always find life’s silver linings!” Mamie’s Baby Boy, Les Brown www.LesBrown.com

 

“I wish I had this series of books when my children were younger…” Brittany T

 

“As an educator of 30 years I always look for books I can read my first graders after recess and during special times PERFECT PENNY is one of their favorite books. We need more books like “Perfect Penny” for our children and their parents.” Mrs. Sabrina Garcia

Author’s Dedication:

 

This book is dedicated to the many children and adults who never heard positive words before or after your name. It is dedicated to the folks who never received a wink, pat on the back, hi-five, smile, or hug of encouragement. Perfect Penny was created to remind you of your greatness, your beauty, and unlimited value. You are enough. You can do more than you could ever begin to imagine. You have greatness within. You are indeed perfect!

Create Your Own Inspiration – Get inspired & Make it Happen This Year!

Driving the 90 minutes from sunny southern California I could hardly believe I’d need chains for my Toyota Prius at Big Bear Lake and Mountain but oh did I! Not getting them on in time was a big mistake as I ended up stuck for about an hour.

Many authors get stuck and some just give up entirely on their dream of being a published author and getting their book out to the world. Sometimes all that is need is to step back, take a breath, put on the chains and start driving again to the top of the mountain. The best views can only be seen with a change of perspective and the view from the top always enlightens and motivates us to how close we are to the goal.

Top 10 Twitter Follows for Book Authors in 2017

Twitter has become a very reliable news feed and micro-blogging platform since it launched in 2006. With so much new information showing up on Google globally each day the Internet struggles to index all of that content topically and relies heavily upon Twitter to help index that new content. This is one reason a new brand, book or author can quickly dominate a local niche or a keyword topic and start trending on Twitter.

Twitter is like the broad side of a funnel as you attract leads and potential customer’s and book readers. The entire goal of Twitter is to create online buzz and begin conversations about your book, business and brand!
