Book Spotlight/Giveaway: World of Ink Tour of Hope Irvin Marston
About the Author: Hope Irvin Marston is a native ofBeech Creek,PA, the eighth child in a farm family of nine. She started school about the time World War II began. Since there were no children’s books in their home, the monthly visit of the bookmobile to the little one-room schoolhouse on the corner of the farm was a wonderful event in her eyes.
Once she learned to read, Hope never grew tired of books. She decided at an early age, she would write a book some day. Thus far that dream has been fulfilled twenty-eight times.
Hope enjoys writing in several genres. Her current projects include two historical fiction books and another junior biography.
In 1990 she retired to devote her time to writing. When she isn’t working at her computer, you will find her reading, making author appearances, doing research or attending workshops as a presenter or a learner.
She was the founder of the Black River Valley Writers Club and the founder and director of the North Country Children’s Writers and Illustrators Workshop. She has taught creative writing workshops at JeffersonCommunity Collegeand the Jefferson-LewisTeacherCenterfor many years. She has also been on staff at Christian Writers Conferences at Hephzibah Heights (MA), Montrose Bible Conference (PA), and a St. Davids Christian Writers Conference at Beaver Falls, Pa. Hope is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and a book reviewer for Church Libraries. http://www.hopeirvinmarston.com/bio.htm

My name is Ella Johnson. I started Mymcbooks to promote reading. As a former teacher, I know that making basic education fundamentals interesting to children can be challenging. Education can be fun, exciting and captivating for children with the right learning tools. So my goal is to “make learning interesting and fun” for the children while they learn, by introducing them to fun books with colorful and captivating illustrations.
In 2009, I start the giveaway program giving away free school supplies at random to 2 winners each year. I also started a monthly free giveaways for books and gifts.
August 2010, I extended the free school supplies from 2 to 5 winners at random on my blog and also give away 20 bags full of school supplies to familes in need at Chick-fil-A in Brandon, Florida during their family nights. And in 2012, I beat my that number and gave away a lot of school supplies to needy families. Hopefully, I can continue to do this each year.
In 2011, I started writing reviews on children’s books then giving these books away free on Mymcbooks Blog. I increase the number of books we giveaway free to help support parent. My goal is to give away as many as I can each year. This is also a great way to introduce parents to new books.
Mymcbooks blog is always looking for other ways to give kids free books. So I started Mymcbooks Birthday Library http://mymcbooksbirthdaylibrary.wordpress.com/
My goal is to giveaway at least 300 books to children each year.
Books Given in 2011: 315
