Our Final Little Kicker Book Is Here!

 

Little Kicker Books—When you care enough to give the very best

We started this journey several years ago. In May, 2011 our first book was printed, followed by a new book each year. We received our eighth and final book of the series in October, 2018: Little Kicker Believes... God has a Plan for him and for you.

Today is Cyber Monday, November 26, 2018. Sandy and I have just returned home from a 52 day book signing and selling tour down across some South Eastern states. On our next birthdays I will be 78 and Sandy 75. Working 11 and 13 hour days is not as easy as it use to be, and recuperation takes a little longer. Anyway, we've got a prayer request: We need direction on establishing Little Kicker for the future. Sandy has completed her race in that the stories God gave to her so many years ago are now in print. In print in English, that is. What about the children of the world who are not English speaking? What about the children born after we have left this world?

Surely those who have read these darling little books will acknowledge their specialness. A specialness that will over-arch language, culture and time. We are desirous of God's perfect plan for Little Kicker's future. Please join us in prayer that Sandy and I will recognize that plan when in His perfect timing it is revealed. 

 

New Book Release

New Book Release

Kimble Creek Press LLC, DBA Little Kicker Books® has taken the third week of August, 2017 to announce the release of their newest book titled Little Kicker's Friendship Book, subtitled Being Happy With the Friends God Gave Me.

Sounds kinda like what I imagine a press release is suppose to sound like, huh? Anyway you slice it, this really is a big deal for Sandy and me. Her first book, A Prayer For Little Kicker, had its first printing in 2011 and has been reprinted two more times since then. Our brand new book, Little Kicker's Friendship Book, is our seventh and is our next to last. Our hope is to have our final Little Kicker book number number eight published early in 2018. We are amazed how God is using these books and plush donkey to help parents, grandparents and other adult care givers instill Bible based values in the children they love.

We covet you prayers. As many of you know, Sandy is a ten year cancer survivor. Yesterday she spent two hours on an MRI table getting a full scan with contrast of her spine. Her spine was where her cancer manifested itself years ago, and her spine has been giving her serious pain for some months now. We of course pray her painful back problem is an everyday, ordinary problem that can be easily corrected. Our nuro-spinal surgeon will invite us in for the MRI results by the end of the month.

On a lighter note, our Fall book tour is pretty well set up. The only location not nailed down is for the first weekend in December, and we will make that determination by the end of August. I mention this because we will be sending out an itinerary via email when that final location is set. If you would like to receive that notice, just use the email sign-up thingy here on our web site. We would love to see you, and Sandy will be autographing! She is often asked to use your special child's name, which she of course is happy to do.

My little tidbit of inspiration for today... What we do today echoes in eternity.

Till next time,

Sam

Upcoming Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Christmas Sales

Upcoming Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Christmas Sales

We have pulled our Autumn Sale, but will have something else in its place shortly.

Sandy and I have been away from home for a little over six weeks selling and autographing Little Kicker books. Thanksgiving will be spent in a convention center parking lot in Jacksonville, Florida. We will spend Friday, Saturday and Sunday set up at a Christmas Made In The South event there in Jacksonville. So glad we were able to buy this Fleetwood Flair motorhome. We left home with 2,100 pounds of books and donkeys, and there is just no way we could have done that with the older smaller unit we started this adventure with four years ago. Both the motorhome and the Chevy we tow are '04 models, but they run like a clock, and we are so thankful for them.

We have two more events to do and then we're heading home. While this is a heck of a way to market books, it seems to be the way God planed for us. We just love seeing kids walking away from our booth excited about their Little Kicker books and plush toy. The parents and grandparents are rewarding as they see the Spiritual values Sandy's little books carry. Until He opens the next door, we remain following His last order. We are so thankful for our health to do this.

Please keep us in your prayers. We need guidance for how best to plan for Little Kicker's continuance when we are no longer able.
