Request for Scholaship to be upgraded to Premium Membership status
This fun, rhyming book deals with whining & crying and bad manners in a positive way. It helps children hear the annoying sound of whining, & decide not to be a Whimper-Whiney

I would like to be nominated for a scholarship to be upgraded to Premium Membership status, so that I can become a Red Room Author.  I have not been a member long, but I have participated in three of the blog contests so far.  (Since I am fundamentally a poet, I take great delight in submitting some of my sonnets and poetry which seem to fit into your categories.)  A former teacher, I am a senior citizen on a fixed income. I have two published children’s books (Santa’s Birthday Gift and Peter and the Whimper-Whineys by Sherrill S. Cannon) which I am trying to market, as well as to pay my illustrator for my third book, The Magic Word, which will be released in 2011.  I have another children’s book, My Finger-Paint Print, with an agent in hopes of finding a publisher who will help pay for the illustrations, and I also have four additional books waiting their turn!  I would love to have my books available for marketing on your site, but I cannot afford the monthly membership at this time.  Thank you for your consideration.
