JLB Creatives Farm Days!

The JLB Creatives Publishing Florida Team spent the weekend at Scott's Zellwood Sweet Corn Jamboree. We had a great time visiting with everyone in our booth and showing off our author's books! We have a growing list of titles filling the shelves. There were local musicians to entertain us and even a corn shucking contest! How many ears of corn can you shuck in 3 minutes? The winner at the jamboree shucked 27! That is a lot of corn!

We also presented to the public for the first time our curriculum Journey to Publication! It's more than just how to write, check out the website for more information at  It was exciting to see the great response to this project.

It was a wonderful weekend! Thank you to Long and Scott Farms for hosting the event and having us there. Huge thanks to everyone who came out and stopped by the JLB Creatives Publishing tents! We hope you enjoy your new books.

Now onto our next adventure! The team will be heading for the Florida Parent Educators Association Convention on May 22, 2015. They will be presenting Journey to Publication during the event. For more information click on the events tab at the top of the blog.
