Do you want to impact kids in a positive way?

My non-profit, 501(c)3 organization is up and running on-line at www.character4kidsinc.org.  It has been approved through the  IRS since 2008 with the mission stated to: "encourage children who have had financial or physical setbacks to read by providing exciting, character building books, through donations by corporations and individuals."

Giving That Makes A Difference
Exciting Books with Positive Moral Values - Builds Good Character

Think back. What is the first time you can recall someone reading an exciting book to you? Did you picture yourself in the story and the adventures you would have? When you traveled through time, rode the high sees to a distant land, or passed through a portal into another world... how did you feel? Did you encounter pirates? Dragons? Talking animals? This is the type of excitement that Character 4 Kids, Inc. wants children to experience, especailly those that have had health setbacks or are challenged financially and might not be able to get one of these great stories on their own. At the same time, we screen books to make sure that they have positive, uplifting themes with good morals and values for children to embrace and learn from.

Character 4 Kids, Inc. takes stewardship of its assets very seriously. 100% of the money donated to the organization, goes towards the purchase and delivery of books. while we appreciate donations for us to utilize in the various projects we evaluate on an ongoing basis, we like to encourage donors to use us as a resource to impact your own community, where ever that may be.

Victim of Cybersquatting - My Domain Name has Changed

I wanted to give a quick update to let you know that the domain name for Ryann Watters has changed to www.ryannwattersbooks.com I officially have become a victim of "Cyber Squatting." My primary job changed in February and unfortunately GoDaddy (my domain carrier) didn't have my new contact information. Therefore when my website domain came up for renewal in August, they couldn't locate me and let it lapse and then allowed it to go up for sale. Apparently there are companies out there that buy up domain names for $10-15 and then try and sell them back to the owner who let them lapste for $150+. I guess I should feel complimented that someone would think my domain is worth something, but hey, I'm no Wayne Batson, Bryan Davis, Donita K. Paul, Christpher Hopper, the Miller Brothers or J.K. Rowling. After trying to figure out a way to rectify the situation through GoDaddy and e-mailing the new owner (yes, it's public information), I decided to make the best of a bad situation and rename ryannwatters.com to ryannwattersbooks.com. There are two books and I'm working on book three and hope to have it ready to read by the Summer of 2014. LESSON LEARNED: Update your contact information with your domain carrier if you ever change your e-mail or phone number! Blessings, Eric www.ryannwattersbooks.com

Yes, you read the title right... Ryann Watter's and the King's Sword, just $1.99 (originally $17.99) or book 2, Ryann Watters and the Shield of Faith, for just $1.99 (originally $19.99).  The publisher is blowing out the remaining inventory to hopefully make room for softcover copies in the future (if the movie is ever made - another story).  You can get both books for just $2.99!  I know, it's crazy... pass the word!  If you buy in bulk (they ship the case), then they are $1 each.  Go here to order: http://shop.ryannwattersbooks.com/

Will 2013 be "The" Year?

There are always things to be excited about as you start a new year.  It's a chance to make new committments, resolutions, set goals, be thankful for the previous year and look forward to improving upon it for the new year. 

I've been getting quite a few e-mails resently from restless fans that want to know when Book 3 will be out.  Believe me, I'd like it to be sooner rather than later.  I've written six chapters and have the rest outlined.  I think if I took a few weeks off and just wrote then it would be done.  Alas, I have a "real" job and it actually pays the bills!


I'd love to tell you what's in the works, but the icing hasn't been put on the cake yet.  My hope is that over the next few weeks details will be finalized so a BIG announcement can be made.  If 2013 is indeed "The" year, then you aren't going to believe it.  Eric
