Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow – Reviewed on Bkids Website

A review of my book has now appeared on the Bkids website. I am hoping of course that this will help me sell more copies. At the moment I am donating part of the sales to the two UK charities Plantlife and Butterfly Conservation but I am interested in supporting and partnering with other organisations and causes.







Plantlife and Butterfly Conservation Support

In the UK I am in the process of getting contracts with these two charities and therefore will be donating a percentage of sales from any of our items for sale on our website www.junagarhmedia.co.uk to them. The initial product that I approached them with was my story Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow. This is available as a pdf on our website and for the Kindle and a printed book from Amazon. Below is a synopsis and some artwork. If you need further information about any of our products please don’t hesitate to ask.

Bea Bee is the most resourceful, hardest working and happiest bee living in a hive located in a beautiful meadow. One day she notices a new sign on the gate and goes back to the hive to get wise old bee to come to the gate with her and read the notice as she doesn’t understand all the words. The news is bad; the sign is for a planning application to build houses all over the meadow. Wise Old Bee suggests that only if a rare or endangered species is found in the meadow is there a chance that the meadow can be saved. Bea suggests a wild idea on how to save the meadow from this happening. If they don’t then they are going to have to move the hive.

Her plan is fairly simple. There are some red flowers down near the stream that produce some fairly sticky pollen and she thinks that if she disguises herself as a red bee people will believe that there is a new species of bee. At least it will give the bees time to find out if there is a rare or endangered species in the meadow. Time to tell the Queen about the problem and also a possible solution.

Bea tries out the deception on two young people camping in the meadow and they take several photographs that they load onto social media. Bea has started a series of events that she is unaware of. Two teams are set up, some normal bees to keep a lookout on when visitors are coming and a “red” team to sow the story and keep each other from being caught. They will now try and convince other people but will experts believe them?

Can Bea’s plan and her friends from the meadow find a way to save it from being built on?

Backyard Beekeeping – A Blog by The Honey Diaries

I have been self promoting my bee story for children, “Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow” and through social media you can meet some really nice people. The people running The Honey Diaries have been very helpful to me and will spread the word about my book. In return I will mention them where I can so if you want to know more about the world of beekeeping then you should get in touch and follow their story. I have to admit I wrote the story but I’m damned scared of things that buzz.

Save the Bees Australia

I have been contacting anyone that I can find through social media who has a connection with bees so that I can promote my book, Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow. Along the way I ran into Simon who runs www.beethecure.com

Simon believes if bees thrive humanity can thrive. With a focus on educating children about the importance of pollination and the rolls indigenous bees play, founder Simon Mulvany has personally saved over 400 colonies of honeybees that were due to be exterminated.

Simon also regular attends at schools to present his work to Australian school children. The enterprise is often featured in mainstream media with special emphasis on the campaigns calling for pesticides to be banned and to stop honey laundering and adulteration that is hurting Australian Beekeepers.

As a voice for small business we have created a honeymap that has been viewed over 430000 times connecting consumers to buy honey direct off the beekeeper.


The change.org petition has over 50000 signatures is currently calling for imported honey to be banned or at least labelled with country of origin.
