'I'm in and I love it!'
What a wonderful idea - I am delighted to contribute. Everyone should have a pile of unread books beside their bed! Trish Clark
Although my name is nothing special, but still I want to help in my own little way and be a part of this great endeavour. I admire and respect your attentiveness to those who are in needs. I really am so happy to be a member of Shadow Forest Authors. God bless you, SFA! Ernesto Pangilinan Santiago
Thank you so much SFA. What you are doing is just absolutely wonderful and I am so honored to be a part of helping in this way. You are a jewel! Keep me updated on everything. Deborah Simpson
Literacy has never been so important in the world we live. In any society, everyone especially children should be able to read and write so their knowledge may one day contribute to the general well-being of humankind. Thanks to Shadow Forest Authors and all the wonderful Organisations who look for new and used books as well as eBooks to distribute them where they are urgently needed, we may hope that one day, everyone will have access to all the knowledge accumulated since writing exists. Donate to such a great cause is therefore one of our duties. Christiane
I am pleased to be a member of the Shadow Forest Authors. As an author, I love the idea of books winging their way to every corner of the globe. I love to think that one of my books might enrich someone’s life, as writing those books have enriched mine. As a reader, I know I would forsake TV, computer, radio, and movies before I’d give up books. Other forms of entertainment and intellectual pursuit will sometimes enhance the book, but they will never replace it. Thank you, SFA for this opportunity to be a part of bringing pleasure to others through books. Eunice Boeve
As an author, one of the main reasons I write is to entertain people, to make them happy, and give them a world they love being in and escaping to. Beyond this dream, that a book can help a fellow human being along the path to literacy is an incredibly beautiful, meaningful and deeply rewarding gift. I am very, very proud and truly honored to be a member of Shadow Forest Authors. –Rai Aren, co-author of Secret of the Sands
This is one of the most worthy organizations I've ever encountered. In the written word, we find inspiration, courage, laughter, hope and love. Books declare the best of who and what we are as the human race; Shadow Forest spreads that vision throughout the world. Now, what could be better than that? Ann B Keller - author of Briggen
This is a wonderful organization you've created here. Illiteracy is such a huge issue all around the world and anything to help promote reading and learning, I'm definitely up for. Please keep up the great work. I'm glad to be a part of a great system to help change people's lives for the better! Rae Lori- author of The Eye of Alloria
This is a good idea getting books to people who have none or who have little opportunity to get them, it furthers their reading skills and promotes the written word to many other people in this age of the internet. I think everyone should read and have access to books of many types and topics. And by improving other peoples reading ability, maybe they can then start to write and tell their story? I am a firm believer in encouraging not just in other people reading but them writing as well. Keep up the good work, I’m so happy to be a part of this. Nick Armbrister, author of Her name is hope
Having been a teacher for 20 years, I can only applaud what you are doing to promote literacy around the world, whilst also encouraging an appreciation and enjoyment of the written word. In this age of computer games and digital T.V., the more exposure to books that youngsters, in particular, can get - whether in electronic or paper form - the better. The more they can read, the more they can expand their vocabulary and learn 'correct' grammar - at least, that is my hope! I wish you every success in your future efforts. Helena Harper, author of It's a Teacher's Life
Even though I am a new 10yr old author, I am capable of doing what other people older than me are doing. I feel honored of working to be a part of Shadow Forest Authors, and for allowing me to express myself freely. I have chosen MOSI as the charity I plan to work with, as I am seriously willing to take an active part of helping by starting my own small business of making gem bracelets and bookmarks, so far I have about 100 now, but work on them daily. In October I will sell them at my book event and send the money to MOSI, as well as my books. I have been scheduling lots of school speaking events and along side of promoting my books I will include SFA and MOSI to help spread the word and see how we can push a little harder each time. Actions speak for themselves, I may be far, but close enough to find my way there. You can count on me now and later! Shanaya Fastje Author of "Mystery School" books
I am truly honored to be a part of something that gives to the world-wide community of readers such as this organization. Writing for me is not only a way to express who I really am but I really hope to entertain and inspire others. A thank you to everyone involved! Christina Noll - author 'Saving Rose'
For me, writing my book was an amazing experience, a journey that I feel has allowed me to truly discover who I am and what I want to accomplish in life. Knowing that people who buy a copy can then take it home and read the tales is one thing, but the knowledge that, through Shadow Forest Authors, I can help those who are underprivileged take pleasure in something that they would otherwise have no access to is the richest of all rewards. Thank you, SFA, and keep up the good work!" Richard Sutherland, author of 'The Unitary Authority of Ersatz'
