The Teddy Project

 
Today I saw a short documentary about a young boy named Campbell in Australia and he inspired me to start “The Teddy Project”. Campbell is 12 years old and started making a bear a day for charity when he was only 9. He visits children in Hospital and gives them the best possible gift ever. A loyal friend for Life: a custom-made Teddy.

As you may know I have published a book early this year with the title “Teddy & Lily, True Friendship is Unconditional Loyalty”.
In August the multi-talented actor, singer and Voice over Carl Lindquist narrated “Teddy & Lily” for me in London. The Audio Book will be soon available in all Online Retail Stores and also on CD. If you don't want to wait, listen to the sample on SoundCloud.
 
It is September and Christmas is around the corner. I have always wanted to do charity work for children in need, especially for Refugee kids, who are easily forgotten and sadly often rejected. Also I love to put a smile on children’s faces that are staying in Children Hospitals. So my goal for this X-Mas is to GIVE AWAY a copy of “Teddy & Lilyin Print along an Audio Book with your help.
 

If  you know a child staying in a Hospital or someone working in a Children's Hospital, who would be happy about an illustrated book & Audio book for their hosbitalized kids or children staying in a Refugee Shelter in UK, Ireland, Scotland, America, Canada, Australia, Sweden, The Netherland, Denmark, Norway, Finland, (any English speaking country), who understands English, please send me an Email to LilyAmis@bluewin.ch.
 

Thank you for your kindness. Thank you for your support. Thank you for your Love!
Lily Amis

"Teddy & Lily"

"Teddy & Lily - True Friendship is Unconditional Loyalty" is the perfect gift for your BFF"

 
About the book "Teddy & Lily"
 
Do you remember the first Teddy you ever got?
Do you remember the person who gave it to you?
 
Teddies symbolize love and friendship, in many cultures. It doesn’t matter how old you are and it doesn’t make a difference whether you’re a girl or a boy, a grown-up lady, or a man. Everybody loves Teddies, because they’re just so cute and cuddly.
As we get older, life changes. Relationships end and family and friends go their separate ways. All we are left with are the lovely memories we cherish in our heart. But the love for our favourite Teddy never changes. Teddies don’t leave us, like people do. They are loyal friends for life.

Who or what inspired me to write the, "Teddy & Lily" story?

If I had to answer this question with only two words: Two-faced people! I’m still working on the last part of my trilogy, “Definition of Love” and during the research and writing process, I looked back over the people who had came in and out of my life. I analyzed relationships with family members, friends, and working colleagues and came to one sad conclusion: Humans are regrettably the most unkind, ungrateful, dishonest, and disloyal of friends.

Just recently I was once again disappointed by a few humans, who only pretended to be nice until they got what they wanted. Lies and dishonesty are something that makes me sick to my stomach. What makes me more furious is when humans behave badly and disrespectfully but seriously think they got away with it, by fooling and pretending nothing ever happened.

That’s how I came up with the idea to write this book from Teddy’s point of view. The story is inspired by true events from my memoir “Destination: Freedom”.

Meet American Author Tom Fallwell

Today I like you to meet American Author and Broadcaster Tom Fallwell. Having always had a fascination with fantasy world-building, even from early in his life, Tom wanted to create his own world filled with rich history. His Rangers of Laerean series does just that, painting a panoramic landscape that is both magical and deadly, in which to set the stories of his Rangers.

Tom lives in the greater Oklahoma City area, in America's homeland, and spends much of his time with watching movies, when not writing his latest work.

Check out his debut episode of Write On with Tom Fallwell featuring  Aaron-Michael Hall, a Book Review of Magnolia Secrets by Beth Hale, and a couple of Book Readings!

Author name: Tom Fallwell
Genres: Fantasy, Sci-Fi
Country: USA

 
 
In the epic conclusion to the Shadows Trilogy of the Rangers of Laerean series, much lore from the ancient past is learned, and the history of the ancient magical creatures known as the Mythica is discovered, while the shadow of the great Dragon Spirit, Narwyrm, looms over them all.
 

Tom thank you for taking the time to answer my questions. Please tell me when did you first start writing? Was being a writer something you always aspired to be?

I started writing professionally in 2014, after retiring from being a software developer. I had always wanted to tell stories, they were always floating around in my head, and after retiring I found the time to start writing them down. Now I can’t stop.

What would you like to achieve as an Author?
While it would be great to be a best-selling author, or to have the success that some do, my focus is simply on entertaining those the love the stories I tell. If someone tells me they loved one of my stories, I feel like a complete success.
 
What is your best advice based on your own experiences so far to other Authors?
Write because you love it, not to gain riches and popularity. Your attitude will be reflected in your work, so make sure you’re doing what you love. It will show.
 
What genres do you read and review to support your fellow Authors?
I prefer Fantasy and Sci-Fi type stories the most, but also enjoy many other genres. I have enjoyed Thrillers, Mysteries, Westerns and such, but Sci-Fi and Fantasy are what I enjoy the most.

 
A quote by you or your Life motto?
Well, there’s an old saying that I truly believe is honest words of wisdom. “What goes around, comes around.” If you want joy, give joy. If you want happiness, give happiness. It’s a solid and factual rule of the universe, and I know for a fact it works. The Bible calls it, “What you sow is what you reap.” I believe that to be an absolute truth.
Thank you very much Tom. It was my pleasure to have you on my blog. I hope many readers will discover your book. Keep up the great work and all the best. Lots of love, Lily

When did you first start writing? Was being a writer something you always aspired to be?
A teacher, Mr Hughes, asked me to write the school play. I've been writing ever since
Besides writing, what else do you enjoy doing? What are your Hobbies?
I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, listening to music, watching classic movies and archive TV, researching my family tree, and playing chess
What are your goals writing wise? What would you like to achieve as an Author?
My main goal is to keep on writing and constantly refine my craft. I would like to produce a series of books that my family are proud of, and gather a core of readers who enjoy spending time in Sam's world
