Precious Cargo

There is nothing like sharing something special with your child. There is nothing better than sharing the things you love most in the world with them. My one and only daughter has written a short story. Like me, in the same month as I did, she has e-published it through Smashwords. I am one very proud Author-Mom of an Author-Daughter.

Please go and download this free e-book. It is a wonderful short story, incredibly sweet. I am not just saying that because she is my daughter, either.

The Bedtime Story by M. J. Kiessling

I did the editing on this gem. Things I don't think about as a writer come back to me when I am editing. Things  I have been reading recently in Kristen Lamb's blogs stood out to me as I was editing. I think I might finally be able to tackle my WIP with much more success because of this as well. Things I owe my daughter - go figure!  She is the best daughter anyone could have, so I expect to owe her much more in the future. (I'm buttering her up for when I am old, and infirm and need someone to live with. ;D  Love you, honey!)

In that spirit of war against my own poorly written prose, I'll quote the Bard in Henry V: Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more! 


  1. Hurrah! I'm so glad she got it uploaded – and what a fun little story!

  2. Thank you for your help with this, by the way, Robin! Did you see the reviews she has already? I was impressed.
