Sparky the Wonderfish: A story of how love creates magic
Written & Illustrated by Gillian Lee Hutshing
Sparky  Events  Newsletter    July  2011!
Dear Friends of Sparky,

A lot of exciting things are happening right now!  I had a terrific time being on the panel at the Santa Barbra Writers Conference last month. This MarketingtheMuse Entrepreneurial Author Panel discussed diversifying platform, 'giving back' & branding in the publishing industry.

I am releasing Sparky the Wonderfish as an iPad and iPhone app.  which will hopefully launch at the Orange County Children's Book Festival on October 2, 2011, in a new media room being built.

Also, I began editing a film at Warner Bros.  Which is why it has taken me this long to send out this newsletter and why it might not be as 'put together' as my previous newsletters, but I hope it is...! 

This coming weekend, Saturday July 23 and Sunday July 24, I will be reading from 12:30pm to 12:40pm and I will be autographing my books all day, both days from 11:00am to 8:00pm, at the Barnes & Noble Marina Pacifica Mall in Long Beach.

Please come see me!!!

Press & Reviews
Writers Digest  Logo
"The illustrations in Sparky the Wonderfish are a knock-out.  They have a childlike charm and simplicity and a luminescence.  This is a very sweet story that will appeal to a wide range of young readers, many of whom have been nose-to-nose with the feeder fish tank at the pet shop.  and the fact that this is based on a true story only makes it more appealing..."

"I enjoyed Sparky a lot, good fun, and my daughter likes it too."

Gillian received a letter from the President and First Lady Mrs. Obama, who also have a passion to promote literacy in the U.S. for kids by having children's book readings at The White House. Gillian mailed a Sparky the Wonderfish: A Story of How Love Creates Magic book and expressed great interested in being a part of those important efforts!

Gillian also received a letter of gratitude for her book and efforts from the Former Vice President, The Honorable Al Gore!
