Today’s post is to showcase a group of writings doing a wonderful thing. I met Chris through a forum and we buddies every since. It was through her that I came to learn about the group.

THE PEACOCK WRITERS

We are a small group of writers who have banded together with one purpose in mind – to collate children’s stories & poems to donate to children’s charities.

Thanks to our wonderful team led by Paula Shene & Gwen D’Young & our contributing authors, we manage to publish two books each year. No two series are the same as each have their own common theme. Each one is available to but as Kindle edition, plain text or illustrated version.

I truly believe the following books will make a lovely present for children this Christmas:

A Whimsical Holiday http://www.amazon.com/Whimsical-Holiday-Children-Childrens-ebook/dp/B006MQ1A0K

Snowflakes on My Lashes http://www.amazon.com/Snowflakes-My-Lashes-Peacock-Presents/dp/1492749443

For a full list of our contributing authors…

About cpbialois

Where do I begin? Well first I guess it's only fair to say that CP Bialois isn't my real name. It's a collaboration I made out of the three greatest pets anyone could ever want. My real name is Ed and I'm just an average person that has found a way to do what he loves. For as long back as I can remember I loved to pretend. Whether it was with my Transformers, GI Joe, or He-Man toys I loved to create intricate plots and have them fight it out. As a fan of horror, science fiction, action, and comedy I dare say my taste in movies are well rounded. Some of my favorites were Star Wars, Star Trek, martial arts, and anything with Swarzenegger in them. I'd write my own stories about the characters I saw in the theaters or TV or I'd just daydream about what I'd see myself as the hero of course. You can't have a daydream without beating the bad guys, getting the girl, etc. It's just not right to envision yourself as a flunky or sidekick. As far as books I loved Sherlock Holmes, Treasure Island, Dracula, and the normal assortment. My early love was the Star Trek novels, I'd read them or the Hardy Boys relentlessly. For a time I could tell you the plot of over a hundred books not to mention comics. I have to come clean and say that I learned to read because of comic books. I was bored, make that extremely bored when we started to read in school. Reading "the cat fell down" really didn't interest me. My dad, who continues to astound me with his insight to this day, figured comics would work. With that in mind he went to the newstand in town and bought issues of Donald Duck, Scrooge McDuck, Tales From the Crypt, and Spider-man. He patiently read through them with me until I picked it up. Whether it was him or the comics I learned to read in about two weeks and for a while few were as good as I was. For years after that whenever we'd go out he'd always spring for a couple of comic books for me. While it wasn't exactly the perfect beginning everything I've ever read or have seen has influenced me in some way and now is the time I'd like to share some of the ideas I've had over the years with all of you. I hope you enjoy my stories, they're always fun to write and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon.

    Hi CP,
    thank you for helping to spread the word about our charity group. It is truly appreciated,
    Chris
    PS I love your ‘About Me’. It is very informative whilst being light-hearted & entertaining.

      My pleasure. It’s a great idea I hope others will help with. :)

      Thank you. I tend to be a goof most of the time so I was surprised it worked out as well as it did. lol

    Thanks for the boost, any help for the children is welcomed :)

  3. Thanks, Ed aka cpbialois for featuring the Peacock Writers, IMO an awesome group of talented people. Their awesomeness comes from their open hearts in the willingness to meet deadlines in order to give their talents for helping children. What started out as a ‘Christmas project’ in 2011 has turned into a loving family of writers involved with pushing aside their WIPs twice a year in order to serve those less advantaged. If anyone with a love to help and a want to become a Peacock Writer, please check out our site http://thepeacockwriters.weebly.com/ and contact us at the link displayed on the site

    Hello, and Happy Holidays! Thank you for highlighting the Peacock Writers. Your kindness is appreciated. As a charter member of the group, with writing in each book to date, I know the kind of heart and soul shared by every writer and the efforts of our publishers to serve children across
    the world. Your background described in your ‘about me’ section is interesting, and your books look fascinating! Hugs, C

      Thank you and Happy Holidays! It was a pleasure. I’m glad to have helped out in some way.

      Heh, thanks. I’m called a character by just about everyone I meet so I try to transfer some of it into my stories. :)
