On July 15, the Christian Booksellers Association's (CBA) International Christian Retail Show will open at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando. It is the largest annual gathering in the world of anyone and everyone involved in the creation and distribution of Christian products. It is the place where the Christian Retail Channel meets, and it provides some excellent interview and story opportunities for all types of media.
This year, the first in a new series of illustrated children's books will be on display. Published by DC Press LLC, "The Princess...The Pearls...& The Pekingese" will makes its debut. Author Elizabeth Jamie Katz, of Mandeville, LA, will be on hand to meet visitors and autograph copies of the book.
Katz has an objective in mind: reaching the hearts and minds of young female readers (ages 4-11) to let them know how much they are loved by God. The series, that will feature the adventures of "the Princess" -- Isabella -- who isn't your ordinary princess. She has learned that she is a daughter of the Creator of the universe, the King of kings!
Isabella lives with her mom, dad, little brother, and of course, her precious pekingese, Lizzie. She enjoys doing lots of things – especially dancing, riding horses and having tea parties! But her favorite thing is dressing up in her fanciest princess dress and wearing her pearls because they remind her that she is a beautiful treasure greatly loved by her Heavenly Daddy! She has a special message for all young girls: “You too are a princess – God’s unique and beautiful daughter!”
Those who have seen advance copies of the book can't say enough about the beautiful illustrations found on every page. New Orleans artist, Dominick Blanda, has expressed his passion for color and form throughout, creating a wonderful experience for the eyes. For those who appreciate detail, there isn't any disappointment.
The story is for any young girl, regardless of Christian affiliation or denomination. The message is universal and applies to all girls, everywhere.
A Christmas book is due in stores and on Amazon.com in time for the 2012 holidays.
Visitors to the CBA can meet author Jamie Katz and pick up an autographed copy of "The Princess...The Pearls...& The Pekingese" by coming by Booth #413 on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday.
