Events With Ramona

I am proud to announce that Jamie's Pet children's book was discovered by several literary scouts who had a chance to professionally evaluate my book. The literary scouts consider my impressive writing skill, artistic yet fun content and amazing reviews online that Jamie's Pet is suitable for Canadian and American readers, who are receptive to my genre by helping me explore new audiences through the right platform.

Hopefully the book will be acquired by Canadian or American investors and decision makers that are partnered with Authors Press, Combines Book Exhibit, and Maple Leaf Publishing.

Jamie's Pet children's book is being exposed and endorsed to Canadian Publishers, American Publishers, thousands of readers, and the publishing industry.

With Jamie's Pet children's book high exposure to Traditional Publishers, thousands of Readers, Bookstore Owners, Distributors, Librarians/Schools, Canadian and American Media Outlets including Screenplay Writers and Movie Production Companies will help by opening doors and opportunities for authors like me who have potential and quality books to share with the Canadian and American markets.

By joining the BookExpo/BookCon, Canadian Book Tour, Frankfurt International Book Fair, and LA Time Festival of Books 2019 Jamie's pet will stand out and be noticed in a congested children's book market. Wish me good luck!

How To Decide On A Pet

When you have a poetic soul and you write a book for children, that projection just glows through, seeping into the consciousness like a breeze. Ramona Morrow, accomplished poet, and avid reader, has written “Jamie’s Pet” in the most profound way that elevates what many considers to be a normal decision-making process.

Jamie’s Pet”, as the title suggests, is about a boy’s indecision for a household pet. He has been wanting one, has been thinking about it, and when he got to the pet store, he was flustered by the many choices facing him. What began as an exciting plan is turning out to be confusing, and above all, overwhelming excursion that may or may not yield a result.

Ramona Morrow works in her skill for creating phrases into stories in “Jamie’s Pet”. She presents, in a language and illustrations most appealing to children, the many factors that must be looked at when deciding on a household pet. To a child, it’s about that “perfect pet, perfect friend” and to a grown up, its about guiding the child according to what the child can manage in terms of care, love, and affection.

Unsurprisingly, the book is inspired from the author’s real, short-lived-pet-drama. In her words, the goal was to get a pet that was good for Jamie, and a good fit for the family. Children will surely love to pick up her book and read it for hours, it imparts good values and ideas that impact how they see the world.

Jamie’s Pet” will likewise touch the parents’ hearts, or any reader’s, as it is full of warmth and love. Ramona Morrow knows how to reach an audience. After all, she’s a poet, with works published in ten different poetry book publications, and she is working on another book.

Ramona Morrow, a mother, writer, and poet currently living in Winnipeg, Manitoba, where she enjoys cooking, baking, music, and movies and flies to her job as a security guard in Gillam, has completed her book “Jamie’s Pet”: a lighthearted story for young readers.
