Join us for Field and Street Hockey Drills Register Now!

Please go to Facebook Event https://www.facebook.com/events/2389599634676395/

In our first Chapter Book and Storybook Captain Remarkable “AKA” Misha liked to play street hockey with her brother Nate. Well, Wiggles Press is happy to welcome you to learn how to play from home online or with Brian & Gabe at Smith Field in Alston.

Our first class is launching Monday, July 20th at Smithh Field promptly at 11 AM.
A second class for girls will be held at the same location and time on Wednesday July 22nd.

The first lessons are beginner drills only: Upon payment we can size you for a t-shirt and stick: no rollerblades or sneakers will be provided.

A portion of your donation will also go to the Alexander Ian Diamantopolus Foundation, his father Benjamin is a Brighton High School classmate of Rochelle O’Neal Thorpe, CEO and Publisher of Wiggles Press Publishing (who is also a Board Member).

We encourage friends and Family to donate directly whether or not they join us this summer: our goal is to help Ben and his family build a Recreational Center in Falmouth that will assist families who are struggling with health issues and drug rehabilitation.

Due to COVID 19 Regulations there is only space for 8 students ages 8 to 12; Brian and Gabe will be their coaches and Rochelle will be nearby reading stories to families and offering crafting lessons.

Ready Set Go! Wiggle Room

Current times have us all seeking useful ways to spend our time. It is my hope that many of you are wp Cover-white-frontconsidering writing your first book.

Lucky for me our time at home has given my editors opportunities to assist in updating the 2020 edition of Wiggle Room  a book designed to help novice writers to “Find their Niche in publishing in the Digital Age of Social Media.”

Mystery and Imagination

ebonyThomasOkay, I’m a little behind the Eight-Ball when it comes to reading this one, but I can’t put it down now and I am so excited about what Ebony Elizabeth Thomas has written about why people of color, mainly African Americans haven’t been represented in Fantasy books and mythical tales for juvenile readers.

The first book Wiggles Press published in this genre was by Paula Ezop,  The Adventures of Penelope Star: The Mystery of the Three Dragons

As a publisher who wants to put wonderful stories in the hands of little readers and the young at heart, I am going to finish this book by Ebony and dedicate 2020 to writing my own fantasy fiction and to publishing books that will make the imagination soar.

Feel free to write me at rochelle.thorpe@yahoo.com to submit your short story or novel and let’s make great adventures and escapes become more diverse.
