You’ve probably been wondering who on earth I am and why I’ve suddenly started appearing on Claire’s blog.
Well, let me explain.
Claire and I met a few years back. I think it was like at the end of 2015 or the start of 2016. Either way, we clicked, and she started helping me get myself together.
I was in a very dark place, had stopped meshing with my book editor publisher and one thing led to another and POOF! A wonderful friendship was born.
Now, all these many moons later, I’m running my own Social Media Marketing business, getting ready to publish my 3RD book and Claire and I are still thick as thieves. Partners in crime you could say, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
But why am I suddenly putting things onto her blog?
Well, as I stated, I help with marketing. Not only do I assist with Social Media, but I am also a Content Promoter.
Claire has entrusted me with the Privilege and Pleasure of helping to grow her blog and her FB page, and so here I am.
I hope we can all be great Friends.
If you’re a client of Claire’s you qualify for some free marketing with Tell-It-To-The-World Marketing (Author, Blogger, Business Assist). So, get in touch at: mailto:email@example.com
Thanks lots for reading.
May harmony find you, and blessid be.
Here’s a bit more about me.
Bubba Tails from the Puppy Nursery at The Seeing Eye Written by Patty L. Fletcher Told by, King Campbell Lee – The Seeing Eye Dog AKA Bubba
In this magical and love-filled tail, King Campbell AKA Bubba travels to the puppy nursery at The Seeing Eye to help ready a group of puppies who are just about to embark on the fabulous journey of learning to become Seeing Eye dogs. Just as he is about to finish his tail, a wee pup becomes very frightened of all that lies ahead, and one frightfully stormy night she runs away! Will King Campbell hear the urgent call from the puppy nursery in time? Will they find her and save her so she can fulfill her destiny?
The use of Tail instead of Tale for story and Magik instead of Magic is intended for these short stories. A great play on words from King Campbell
*Book now includes Wish of the Wee Golden*
How a Seeing Eye Dog Retrieved My Life
ABOUT THE BOOK…
This is the story of how the author obtained her first guide dog from The Seeing Eye™ in Morristown, New Jersey: what motivated her, the extensive training she had, the special relationship she developed with her trainer, and the good friends she made. Once she returned home to Tennessee, there were many new challenges to be met and overcome, including domestic abuse.
All that was in addition to her chronic conditions of bipolar disorder and fibromyalgia.
With honesty, courage, and humor, Patty Fletcher tells a remarkable story of personal development that is sure to inform, entertain, and inspire others, both blind and sighted.
Available for download from the National Library Services for the Blind and Physically Handicapped.
I’m a single mother with a beautiful daughter, of whom I am very proud. I have a great son-in-law and six beautiful grandchildren. I hope to be able to write more about them later.
In April of 2011, I went to The Seeing Eye™ and was given a beautiful black Labrador named King Campbell Lee A.K.A Bubba. We trained together at The Seeing Eye™ for 26 days and on April 29, 2011 we graduated from the Dog Guide program and together began our new life.
Sadly, Campbell has left for the Rainbow Bridge where all is peace and love.
CAMPBELL LEE FLETCHER A.K.A. BUBBA ®SEEING EYE DOG
NOVEMBER 28, 2008-SEPTEMBER 24, 2020.
King Campbell Lee A.K.A. Bubba Retired ®Seeing Eye Dog Died peacefully on September 24, 2020 at approximately 3:30 P.M. at Colonial Heights Animal Hospital located at 209 Colonial Heights Rd. in Kingsport Tennessee after battling illness for some time. His human Mother Patty Fletcher and good friend Christy McMakin were by his side.
King Campbell was born in Chester N.J. November 28, 2008.
He lived with his Dog Mother and Litter Mates until he was approximately eight weeks old, and then he went to live with his Puppy Raisers.
Then, when he was just over a year-old he was taken away from his Puppy Raiser family by a wise and ancient trainer, so he could go and live in the magickal and ancient land of The Seeing Eye, where his training began.
After only four short months on April 4, 2011 he was chosen to become the guide of his human Mother Patty L. Fletcher.
He went to live in the land of Kingsport Tennessee with her, and there they lived a wonderful life together from April 29, of 2011 until September 24, 2020 during which, they had many magickal and at times challenging adventures, but through it all King Campbell did his very best to keep all he loved safe from harm.
King Campbell is survived by his human Mother Patty Lyne Fletcher, human sister Polly Telucia Fletcher Hensley and her husband and six children, Grandfather Earl Fletcher JR. Aunts Mary Fletcher, and Joan Norris. Also, by, his Adopted Grandmother Phyllis Staton Campbell, adopted Uncle Dave Light, his now retired trainer Drew Gibbon and various staff from The Seeing Eye. As well as many friends round the world including his editor and publisher Claire Plaisted of Plaisted Publishing House Services, his attending veterinarians DR. Hyatt and DR. Gray and other beloved staff from Colonial Heights Animal Hospital. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
I hope to return to The Seeing Eye™ for a successor dog.
ABOUT MY BLINDNESS…
I was born one and a half months premature. My blindness was caused by my being given too much oxygen in the incubator. I was partially sighted until 1991, at which time I lost my sight due to an infection after cataract surgery and high eye pressure. I used a cane for 31 years before making the change to a guide dog.
WHERE I LIVE AND WORK…
Currently, I live and work in Kingsport, Tenn. I used to work for CONTACT-CONCERN of Northeast Tennessee, Inc. I left that position to spend time with my family and pursue my writing full time. I’m now the creator, and owner of Tell-It-To-The-World Marketing (Author, Blogger, Business Assist)
I write with the goal of bridging the great chasm which separates the disabled from the non-disabled.
At Tell-It-To-The-World Marketing, we assist talented authors, as well as successful business owners in their marketing, by marrying social media, with more traditional approaches.

My hobbies include reading, music, and standup comedy. I also like nature walks, light hiking, tent camping, and fishing. No, I am not afraid to bait a hook.
Music I enjoy
My favorite types of music are classic rock, rhythm and blues, and classic country, as well as some present-day country music. I also like meditation music.
My favorite books and authors
I enjoy fantasy, science fiction, and books about the supernatural. I love books by Stephen King, Dean Koontz, and many more. My favorite books include; Stephen King’s Dark Tower series, J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series, and J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings series.
MY SPIRITUAL FAITH…
I am a spiritual walker. I claim no particular faith, either Christian or pagan. I simply know that there is God and Goddess, or Mother Father God, as some call her/him. I lean toward the natural approach, or Druidism (Druidry), as it promotes harmony and respect for all beings, including the environment. I am also very interested in herbs and their healing properties.
I can’t quite believe how fast the last two years have gone. The Indie Publishing News was first published on 10th Feb 2016 as a by monthly magazine for Indie Authors. It was quite a hard sell at first, looking for people who would participate, doing interviews, new releases poetry etc. By May of the same year I opened the Indie Publishing News Groupso I could gather all I needed to make a magazine. I made Post headings and invited those I knew into the group so we could all share and enjoy each others achievements.
The group grew, the magazine changed appearance in October 2016 and we started Spotlight Authors. If memory serves me well J G Clay was my first Spotlight Author. He was great to interview and the cover was amazing, a great photo which Ceejay-designscreated and continued to create right up until Ceejay became a Spotlight Graphic Artist/Book Cover Artist. This year, this young designer will only be doing the word placement as each magazine will be created by a different designer who we will interview and show some of their work.
By the end of the year I also had two cartoonists to draw cartoons of my Spotlight Authors…a good bit of humour which I know has been enjoyed by the authors involved. Adam Mitchell was with us for a short time before Mara Reitsma are great artists.
Today we have a group of over 500 members with 370 who have signed up to participate and share out the magazine each month. Sadly I have no idea how many share or even open each magazine, what I do know is it goes out worldwide and we get more new members each month. Looking into the statistics of the group the amount of participates in the group is 145 which isn’t even half of those who signed up.
If we wish this magazine to continue to grow and share your work, we really need to up the amount of those who participate within the group. We need more names for Interviews, New Releases, Poetry, Flash Fiction, Events, Educational, Informational…The last two can be emailed to me.
Comments and Reactions have also dropped.
The drop in Comments means less are participating and adding links. The magazine has gone from 45 pages down to about 33. Even though that is still quite a large magazine it is also a considerable drop. If you can help build the magazine back up…please let me know. Send in your ideas…Give it a go and be proud to be INDIE
I would like to encourage bloggers to join the group and share some of their educational and informational articles, spread your news, share our magazine and grow our social media. I’m happy to do a short series on various writing, editing, book covers, marketing topics etc.
On the marketing side I’d like to thank Joe Compton from Go Indie Now for sponsoring this magazine last year. If you wish to sponsor the magazine by getting the same advert in each month then the cost is $60 USD
Part of the celebration is also opening the doors to Indie Music and sharing their links to videos, muisc and we are also hoping to share songs by these wonderful muscians.
Happy 2nd Birthday to everyone involved in this wonderful magazine!
First it was Co-Promote who disappeared without notice, and from what I have seen and read – with out paying back to those who had membership and not contacting anyone who used their system which was excellent. There is still a post up saying they are having internet glitches and will be back soon. Months later and nothing.
Now it is Headtalker who has been sold or join Newswire. I’m sure it was an excellent decision for the company. We all thought Headtalker would be back and still have FREE Campaigns as well. Sadly NOT.
Newswire – who I have been in email contact, asking when Headtalker campaigns type thing would be back…WON’T BE BACK… All campaigns will be done by Newswire and they won’t be FREE. They will be charging Influencer FEES…I am sure there are many who will be able to afford those fees, though I don’t know what they are. They will do a budget…Though they didn’t tell me what that budget was either. It doesn’t bode well for those Indie Authors on budgets at all.
This is what is on Newswire website under pricing. I have no idea if this is it or if they will be offering more budget packets. There lowest for Single was $99 (Note the three options above Pro/Small Bus & Enterprise).
