Observation and mimicry have been my tools of learning. I have become a thief of character. I find things about people that I admire and steal those positive attributes, quickly disguising them as my own.

Quick story: In speaking with an old family friend one day I realized that he was leaning forward so he could hear me. His eyes were focused on mine when an awareness emerged. By nothing more than listening intently to what I was saying - he gave me a sense of importance, of consideration. Noticing this affect was meaningful. Making others feel this way became my personal goal. Listening to others in the same manner, simply put, is considerate. So I stole that from him and have made it mine.

Being preached to has a negative affect on me. I figure others are the same. So, I don't preach. Besides, I don't really have anything to say. But I can be myself and hope that it has a positive impact on those that observe. Just like my mom and dad did with me. Their actions were louder than their words.

My new book is really about actions over words. The Secret Teddy Society is about teddy bears that come to life. But it's more about who they are and how they got that way. They watch and learn everything from us, good and bad. While we think we're alone, they're watching. They copy and emulate the person they love the most much like our children. Sprinkled with wonderful situations of life, this book is aimed at anyone who believes in life that lives outside our peripheral vision. It may be about teddy bears but when they meet up with an alley bum in the city they learn about personal choices and responsibilities of your actions.

Finding the audience for Secret Teddy Society has been a challenge. Because I wrote a teddy bear book with more of a general audience in mind, the instant impression is that it is a children's cute little teddy bear book. Well, it is that and more. I want to share with you two early reviews that expressed it rather well:

Elaine Williamson from England wrote: (Five stars)
"This was a very different book, I was sure I wouldn't read much of it, started it for curiosity really but enjoyed it and was enthralled with the story. This book is really creative. You would think a book about teddy bears would be a children's book but this has a great story, good plot and has kept me enthralled. highly recommend it. Give it a go, you'll get hooked!"

George Ibarra from Texas wrote: (Four stars)
"The best fantasy tale I've read in a long time.

On the surface the book comes across as a silly, cute adolescent fantasy about teddy bears. It is that and a morality tale.

SECRET TEDDY SOCIETY: BREAKING THE CODE is about love, honor, loyalty, respect, and friendship. It is the teddy bears own Lord of the Rings, but with more excitement and stronger ties.

STS captured me from the beginning with a daring escape of one bear through the help of another. It builds itself upon intrigue and conspiracy within the teddy bear world before focusing on two teddies, Waldo and Bobby, and their human family. I found myself rooting for the bears as they discovered all about our world, and also about ice cream, tastysquishes, Kage Kuma (shadow bears), were-bears, and zombie bears.

This book is great for the young and for adults. It is well written and well plotted, with plenty of foreshadowing. STS deserves a major publisher and I hope it finds one."

These reviews were spot on. I could not have asked for anything better. These people took a chance on this seemingly adolescent children's book but found it to be something different. I hope you take the chance too.

The Secret Teddy Society story continues as book 2 is in the works. It does get a darker.

I hope to make an impact on you. Hopefully, a good one.

Curl up with your favorite Teddy! 11 février 2013
Par Charla Wilson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
This book was not what I expectedd! In fact, it was so much better than what I expected! It was at times funny, sometimes sad, and sometimes scarry. But it all added up to be a great story for adults and kids of all ages. I mean who doesn't love a Teddy Bear? I loved that it even included a brief history of how the first Teddy came into being. You could not help but get caught up in the secret lives of the Teddies, Waldo and Bobby Bear and their owners Bobbie, and James. At times during this story, I found that I was holding my breath to find out what came next. I encourage everyone to cuddle up with their favorite Teddy and enjoy this wonderful story! Oh, and I bet after you finish it, you will never see your favorite Teddy in the same way again!

This book was wonderfully written and I hope to read more of J.S. Gilmore's work! I could not help but feel like he poured his heart and soul into this book and it truly came through in his writing!

I wanted to love this book! It is a cute idea and has a lot of potential. The characters are developed well and come to life on the page. I especially liked James, Bobbie, Bobby Bear, and Waldo. James is a fun character and seems like a great dad. Bobbie is so sweet and is a good bear-owner. Bobby Bear and Waldo are hilarious. I love their sibling-like-bickering and the names they come up with for ice cream and marshmallows. The descriptions are very well done and I felt like I was right there in the story. The part of the story that deals with the cute bears and their sweet human Bobbie, and her dad who writes these amazing stories about the bears, that is all great! Girls K-3 would love it! But then the other half doesn't fit at all. There are scary were-bears, zombie bears, a scary, drunk homeless man who lives in a cardboard box in an alley, and two teenage boys who try to steal a car. There are also a couple of swear words. This part of the story would not be good for those K-3 girls, yet, 4th-5th boys wouldn't really like the sweet part of the story. I'm just not sure who the target audience is.

"Breaking the Code" is a charming allegory that points to important moral issues such as courage, loyalty, and unbound affection. A reader will find ambition and political intrigue within the Secret Teddy Society as well as encounters with creatures of the imagination--read zombie bears, and unexpected adventures. Perhaps the best part is that it all ends well.
