An Impressive Assignment

Months ago I met a young girl, Hannah at one of my book signing events.  She was almost eleven, the same age I was when I began to write.  I was thrilled to discover that we had several things in common; a homeschooled & Christian background, and both of us an enthusiast for Oklahoma author, Bill Wallace’s children’s books, which inspired “Destination White House”.  In fact, her family knew the Wallace’s personally and graciously conveyed a copy of my book and personal message to Bill & Carol Wallace. 

Her mother & I have continued to stay in touch and when we met for lunch one day, Hannah presented to me her school assignment; an incredibly detailed report on my book, complete with her own hand designed cover. I was thoroughly impressed by her creativeness and hard work and wanted to share it with all of you!

“Ms. Burke,
Here is what I wrote for my report.

Back cover:
This book was super! I love it. I would give the author "Best Eleven Year Old Writer " award. I love how it includes most of my favorite things; animals, humor, and adventure. Everyone should read this book.

Inside front cover:
"Destination White House"
For anyone who loves animals, this book is perfect for you.
The hilarious adventure begins when Barney, (the president's dog) gets lost at the airport. He also meets a friend along the way. Will Barney or his friend survive the long journey?
Only one way to find to find out, open the book and start to look.

Inside back cover:
About Robin Burk
Robin was 11 when she started writing her book, and 13 when she finished. She was inspired by reading Bill Wallace's books. She was homeschooled along with her twelve siblings.”

Hannah, age 11

Dreams Do Come True!

I stopped in at a library this week and look what I found on their shelf!  I spy, "Destination White House"!

I’ll admit, it's amazing and a bit surreal for me to see my own book on a library shelf. Growing up I made frequent visits to the town’s library and was well known by all the librarians.  The inspiration for my book came from reading Oklahoma author, Bill Wallace’s books which I had discovered on these very same shelves. I remember thinking, “If he can do it, I can do it!” When I began writing my own book, I was only eleven years old.

I remember asking my favorite librarian, Gerry if one day they would put my book on the library shelf. I was so disappointed to hear that it had to be published before it could be placed in their system.

Long story short, a lot of hard work and nine years later; I am very humbled to see my book finally made its way to the library shelf!  It's been amazing to see that dreams do come true.  My God is so amazing!

Author, Robin Burk with her home-town librarians, Gerry & Sue.

These are some of the pictures from the book signing events at Cabin Creek Coffee shop and Olivet Books and Gifts in Alpena, Michigan.  It was such a blessing to be able to put a smile on these little faces and inspire them to read and achieve their dreams!

A big thanks to Dianne Spear of the Alpena Newspaper who wrote up a great article announcing the event at Olivet, and to all those who stopped by to meet me and show their support.

Many blessings,

Book Signing Events At Cabin Creek & Olivet

Cabin Creek Coffee shop and the Olivet Book & Gift in Alpena, Michigan will be hosting two separate book signing events for author, Robin Burk.  The event at Cabin Creek will be on Saturday, March 3rd from 1:00-3:00 and Olivet Book & Gift will be Saturday, March 10th from 10:30am-1:30p.m.  Please mark the dates on your calenders and invite your friends and family to stop by and see me and purchase a signed copy of my children's book, Destination White House.

Destination White House is a captivating adventure, sure to entertain all ages but especially young readers. The reading level of this book is geared towards the ages of 9-13, however it works great for parents with children under those ages as a story time read-aloud. It's also a great chapter book for teachers who are conducting a book assignment for their class. If you are looking for a great gift to give you child, grandchild, niece or nephew, or you simply love children's books, Destination White House is the book to buy!  But you don't have to take my word for it, please read the reviews on Barnes and Noble or Amazon!

If you, or someone you know, would like a copy of my book but are unable to attend these events you can purchase a copy online through the links listed on the left; Barnes & Noble, Amazon, & Tate Publishing.  Or by calling Olivet Book & Gift at: (989) 354-3331 and requesting a copy!

Many blessings,

Coming Soon: A New Look for a New Year!

Well, it's six days into 2012, and Robin has asked me (her happy designer friend) to help her give the blog a new look to go along with the new year. During the next few weeks or so, things may start to look a little different - and possibly even a tad hectic - but don't worry! It's only a phase. :)

In the meantime, enjoy the new year...it's brimming with hope and new opportunities. (And don't forget to search "Destination White House" on Barnesandnoble.com and Amazon.com and write a review on Robin's book!)

With love,

An Update from the Author

Just to let everyone know, I have not fallen off the face of the earth.  For the past month I have been staying in Michigan caring for my 84 year old Grandpa.  I will not be scheduling any book signing events or booking any speaking engagements until I return to my home in Oklahoma in April. However, if you or someone you know is interested in hosting a book signing event for me or would like to have me speak at a school, library, or any other event, you can contact me at:  love.that.is.not.shaken@gmail.com

For those of you who have read my children's book "Destination White House" I would like to ask a small favor.  Could you please take a minute to write a brief review and post it on Amazon and Barnes & Noble's websites? I can't stress how important this is for the promotion and sales of my book and it would help me out tremendously. I would be very blessed if you could please just take five minutes to visit the links below and leave a review!



 Thank you so much!
