Treat Others the Way You’d Like to be Treated

What wonderful news to receive!!  It was especially fun since we are now traveling and when the results were announced by email, I had forgotten that I had entered The Golden Rule instead of My Little Angel, since I hadn’t entered these awards before & Angel will be eligible next year… I went back to see if I recognized any authors & found myself again!

So for the first hour, while sightseeing, I was exuberant about A Penny for Your Thoughts winning its fourth Gold Medal… and an hour later I discovered that The Golden Rule was also a Gold Medal winner!!!

So great to have the eBooks win Gold!!!

A Penny for Your Thoughts

By Sherrill S. Cannon

154 pages – Strategic Book Publishing and Rights Co.

ISBN: 978-1-946540-57-7

Reviewed by Victoria Wagner Ross

Award-winning children’s author, Sherrill S. Cannon, announced the release of her poetry book, “A Penny for Your Thoughts” which received a great review from Reader’s Favorite. This loving book of one-hundred fifty-four poems is simply the most beautiful book of the heart and anguish, exploring love and friendship. Thoughts of Elizabeth Barrett Browning and her sensitive sonnets are shadows in some of Cannon’s poems. The lovely style of blending and weaving words to evoke feeling is well done. The poetry touches on topics of age, youth, nature, and love with deep emotion such as “My Tree” and the following excerpt from “Frozen Wasteland”:

​“…But you came to me and took me

​From the Winter of my heart─

​Where I lived before I met you,

And where nothing new could start─

​To a land of youth and beauty,

​Where I never shall grow old…

For you took my hand and led me

Into sunshine from the cold.”

The poetry exceeds her wonderful children books that hinted through the Dr. Seuss homage of rhyme delivering gentle lessons with deeply felt emotions of humanity. KJ of Kalpart Illustrations, who has created the illustrations and book covers of Ms. Cannon’s nine award-winning Children’s books, does an emotionally stirring cover with a black, gray and white sketches which interchange the feelings with the words.

Sherrill S. Cannon grew up in the Willard Hotel in Washington, DC. She is the original Eloise! She has received over fifty awards for her children’s books distributed globally on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. This current diversion into poetry in the fall of 2017 has won two Gold Medals – Feathered Quill and Reader Views – as well as a Specialty Poetry Award and is a Pinnacle Achievement winner.

Early in her career, her brilliant children’s book, The Magic Word, was evaluated and recommended by Professional Book Scouts. Book scouts were asked by Traditional Publishers to review books that decision-makers will be interested in taking advantage and consider buying the rights to the books. They reviewed thousands of Children’s books published from 2011 to 2016 and only 22 books were graded A and were invited to the international book fair event. Ms. Cannon’s books will appear at the 2018 Bologna international book fair.”

Ms. Ross has been “white-listed” for her technology news review articles on the San Diego Examiner and contributed to Bitcoin Magazine, Brave New Coin, BizCatalyst360, Medium and other global platforms. She is a graduate MBA from the ASU Thunderbird Global School of Management, Loyola University of Chicago with cum laude in political science and certificate from executive program at Wharton School of Finance.
