I am so excited to finally announce the release of my new children's picturebook.
This timeless children's picturebook offers vivid illustrations by renowned artist and cartoonist, Nick Nixon. Bright colors light up each page from the toy shop train to Grandpa sharing the story of Jesus birth and a glowing candy moon at the end. The carefully crafted wording gives older children ease in reading to their younger siblings and friends. The familiar scripture of Christ birth, reminiscent of A Charlie Brown Christmas, is also included. A children's book of this nature is long overdue, and one surprisingly not available before now. In a world where traditional values are challenged, Candy Moon fits well as a classic family favorite.
Nick Nixon owned and managed a graphic design studio, which employed a full time staff and four artists. His thriving business served local, national, and international clients for 35 years. Since retiring, Nick has concentrated his talents on cartoons, writing, and illustrations. His humor columns and cartoons have appeared in various publications. He offers to do caricatures for patients at area cancer treatment centers and housing facilities for their families. Nick also reads stories to children during day care programs at his church and provides copies of custom drawings related to that day's book for a coloring activity. Helping out at special family events such as birthday parties for his thirteen plus grandchildren and looking after his loyal companion, Gracie the wonder dog, keep him busy. However, he imagines himself a legend in his own mind while attempting to play golf, in his words, “a most humbling game.”
Londa Hayden is a native Texan now living in beautiful Tennessee with her husband and three sons. She studied music at East Texas Baptist University. Her experience in the medical field gave her the opportunity to volunteer during the Katrina crisis, which inspired the children's book Candy Moon. Londa is the founding president for Bartlett Christian Writers, and a staff writer for Southern Writers Magazine. Her memoir Date, Pray, Wait inspired a blog by the same name which offers Christian dating advice. Even though Londa has been happily married to Steve, her first and only husband for almost three decades, she believes a healthy couple never stops dating. She hopes her golden years will bring lots of grand-babies and camping trips to inspire more fun children's books. Find more publications by Londa on her websites at http://londahayden.com and http://datepraywait.com.
