Hey Folks! We’re at the Mesa Book Festival this weekend, Saturday, December 8th, 2018 in downtown Mesa, Arizona. We’ve got a small handful of new books that will make great gifts for the authors, artists, poets, and storytellers in your life. Sean Buvala shows you two of these new books in this short video. PLUS+ we’ve got a simple and fun craft project for kids (and big kids and bigger kids…all y’all) See you this weekend in Mesa! #mesabookfestival2018 #mbf2018 #mesabookfest2018
If you’d choose paper cuts over public speaking, this workshop is for you.
Every business owner, artist, author and entrepreneur MUST network, connect, speak and communicate with other people, no matter how you might feel about public speaking. Let’s make it easier. Join us for our next “lunch and learn” session to help you become more comfortable in public speaking.
Get on the list! The following (below on this page) lists are to keep you informed about upcoming books. These lists below are used only to tell you about one specific book. For general information, please use the Email form to the right >>>> .
1. Laura Packer has a new book being released in December. Get on that list now here:
Our publisher, Sean Buvala, has released a new podcast series. It’s a bit kinder and gentler than his “Inappropriate Folktales” podcast, but still not really designed for the little ones. You can find it a storyonsaturday.com, with links to ways to subscribe at all the normal podcast-y places.
Just a little tease of the art from our forthcoming “The Fox and the Crow” collection of Aesop tales. Currently on for a late August release. All art by Michelle Buvala of The Mesquite Tree Studio in Arizona. This is a piece from “The King of the Birds” fable.
Last weekend, we had a nice gathering of stories and art at BOONgarden in Goodyear, Arizona. We sold some books, sold some art and had a fine evening of adult storytelling. Here’s a brief clip from Sean Buvala sharing “The Strongest Man in Ireland.”
The Write-In Journal for the Oral Storyteller
Storyteller, who are you? What should you know? What is your place in the world’s oral storytelling traditions?
Dozens of Thought-Provoking Comments and Questions
We asked oral storytellers from around the world to answer the question, “What should storytellers know about the art and craft of storytelling?” You’ll find many of their responses in this write-in journal. In addition to the 30+ comments and 20 focused questions, you’ll find some blank pages for you to generate your own thoughts and ideas.
Just a little video of Michelle working on the artwork for the next “The Fox and the Crow: Art and Stories Inspired by Aesop” book. Enjoy.
Michelle and Sean were recently at the “Welcome to Kindergarten” for the Pendergast School District in Avondale, Arizona. 100 lucky families received a free copy of the DADDYTELLER book from Sean. PESD uses a bee as a mascot (“We BEE-lieve in You!”)…so Sean captured the moment in a photo. Thanks for hosting us, good PESD folks!
We’re pleased and grateful for the front-page article from the West Valley View in Avondale, Arizona. There are a two great pictures and a good article that talks a bit more about the philosophy of the author and illustrator. Thank you to the WVV team who put this together. Above is a picture of Michelle Buvala, the illustrator for Apples for the Princess (Amazon Link) book. Taken at the “Art is Alive” festival in Goodyear, Arizona.
