“Are we there yet?” The famous, or infamous question we have all heard from our backseat children asking over and over if the family has arrived for its anticipated destination.
There are many activity books, coloring books, and video attention grabbers available to keep little minds occupied. Well, here is something new. I have just designed, written, and published three journals, or diaries, that will keep children engaged and active during any journey in a car, aboard a cruise ship, in a national park, or just out for a day trip in the neighborhood. In the travel section of my website, JournalsCentral.com I have added three new journals to my ever growing list of journals now available for purchase. The new titles are: “National Park Journal for Children,” “Cruise Journal for Children,” and “Travel Journal for Children.” I have made these journals available in color and packed them with artwork and ample space for your kids to write or draw.
Not only will these journals keep your children engaged for each day of your vacation but they will also urge them to use their imaginations and their little growing minds. Writing down their thoughts and drawing images in these journals is a great stimulation and boost to the learning curve for little minds developing quickly. And years from now, those thoughts and images that your children produce now will be a memorialization of those years when the world was new and bright and fun.
Each child in your family should have a copy of these journals and should be encouraged to begin early life habits of daily discipline and using their imaginations to explore their new world.
Click on the covers above or the links below to be taken directly to Amazon’s Create Space Store to order copies of these journals for your children. They will have fun participating with these journals and you may just get a few minutes of peace and quiet. Have some fun family, you and they deserve it.

When we had our 30 Coachman Concorde class “C” RV during our time in Texas, we had the time of our lives. We visited many states and saw a number of National Parks taking in the sights and sounds of our exploration. There is only one regret, however…we did not keep a journal. I did not write down what we saw, what we experienced and how we felt at seeing such beauty and splendor. I am positive that had I done so I would have turned those journal entries into a book or two, or three, or more.
I started a new publishing company dedicated to directly fix that problem. The company is called Journals Central and you can find it online at www.journalscentral.com. I have over 45 journals ready for purchase. These are print books available from Amazon CreateSpace subsidiary. Just go to my www.journalscentral.com website and click on the book cover you wish to purchase. These books are inexpensive and you will thank yourself years from now for taking the time to memorialize and make diary entries in your journal for all the experiences you had during a wonderful trip, excursion or expedition.
When the initial JournalsCentral book catalog is complete at the end of this year there will be over 100 journals to choose from. I am also encouraging all of you to write me at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know what journals you would like to see added to our catalog.
“My RV Travel Journal“ has just been published today as I write this blog. You can visit the Amazon page directly by clicking on this link: https://www.createspace.com/6453093 or clicking on the book cover above or below. Check it out. Thanks.
I am running a 7-day book price promotion for my latest fantasy novel, “Noah’s Adventure.” The dates: Saturday, July 16th through Saturday, July 23rd. This entertaining and emotional quick-read book will be priced at $.99, normally $2.99 on Amazon Kindle. That is a 67% savings.
“Noah’s Adventure” was released at the beginning of this year and has received some excellent reviews. I received one response from a reader who said the ending moved her to tears. The story is powerful and personal for me as its author. After reading the book I encourage you to return to the sales page on Amazon and review what you have just read. It would mean a great deal to me hear what you think about my latest work.
Just click on the book cover above or on the following link, http://amzn.to/29zpgec, to be taken to the Amazon Kindle Sales page to pick up your copy of “Noah’s Adventure” at this highly discounted price. Remember the price promotion starts this coming Saturday, July 16th and runs for 7 days until Saturday, July 23rd.
Here is the description of my book as posted on Amazon Kindle:
“A 12 year old boy, Noah, goes to the zoo with his mother and father and is swept away alone on a seven continent fantasy adventure. He sees dozens of animals and learns about them in their true habitat. His guide and personal docent, Manny Meercat, teaches Noah about the animals’ lives. Manny Meercat also teaches Noah about the possibilities in life and how to grieve for his brother’s recent death. Noah’s journey is a memorial to his brother Jeremy who shared his love of exploration and adventure.
The story and content in “Noah’s Adventure” contains threads from the author’s own life and history. It is an emotional personal account in many ways for the author and it is in the same book genre as Antoine De Saint-Exupery’s “The Little Prince” or Astrid Lindgren’s “The Brothers Lionheart.” This mid-grade children’s book will attract readers from age 10 to adult. “Noah’s Adventure” is an escape into a world of fantasy that is exciting and at the same time filled with emotion that will touch your soul.”

I am very excited to announce the release of 11 new U.S. National Park journals that can be found on my website, www.journalscentral.com. I have posted below a Press Release that will be distributed today. I have designed and written these diary journals in commemoration of the National Park Service Centennial, 1916-2016, which is in full swing this year.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
National Park Journals Released and Published on Amazon Create Space
July 4, 2016
To Commemorate the Centennial of the National Park Service, 1916-2016, JournalsCentral.com and author Frederick Fichman announces the release of 11 new National Park Journals. These just published journals can be found on the website www.journalscentral.com. All of the book covers for these journals contain hyperlinks which will immediately take the reader to the Amazon subsidiary CreateSpace.
These journals will allow travelers to document their visit in a day to day diary. Visitors can memorialize what they have seen and what they experience on their trips to the crown jewels of the National Park Service. At the front of each National Park journal author Fichman has included a complete list of Travel Items every visitor should have with them. Also included is a brief history of the National Park service and a dedicated description of one of the top 10 most-visited National Parks in the park system. Each journal is 60 pages long with space at the rear of the National Park journal to include photographs. Each day’s entry page includes space for a description of events, companions, personal thoughts and a singular event that caught the travelers’ attention.
There are now almost 50 journals listed on the newly created journalscentral website and the number of journals offered will continue to grow this year. Mr. Fichman is the author of over 80 fiction and non-fiction books on Amazon Kindle and 62 books on Amazon’s print division, CreateSpace.
To see a list of Author Frederick Fichman’s books go to his website at www.frederickfichman.com or his journal website at http://www.journalscentral.com to see all 11 of the National Park journal covers.
I have just written and published two new journals available on Create Space. Here are the urls: “My Travel Journal” www.createspace.com/6357117 & “My Cruise Journal” www.createspace.com/6357743.
Mark Twain said it best: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
Photographs can certainly capture a split second moment. But it is your own words that can describe what you saw, what you felt, and what you want to remember. These two journals will allow you describe those wonderful days while you travel and as you write in your day-to-day diary. Many years from now when you read those words it will be like reliving those magic moments again and again.
These journals are very inexpensive but the memories are priceless. They contain a helpful and useful list of essential travel items that you should consider taking with you on your travels.
Summer travel is just starting, have a great time in your journeys. And have so much fun till you can’t stand it anymore. Your deserve it.
JUST ADDED: YouTube Book Trailer for all 32 My Recipe Journals:
Every Homeowner, Every Renter should have a copy of “My Home Inventory Journal”
I’ve just published a new journal that you should definitely consider purchasing. Under great and crushing pressure you will definitely need an inventory of your household and personal possessions. That is the first question any insurance company will ask you if you submit a claim for damage or loss. I have designed and constructed a thorough and easy to follow and use journal to do just that, “My Home Inventory Journal”
This is what is written on Amazon for the description of this book:
“My Home Inventory Journal.” YOU NEED THIS JOURNAL. YOU MUST HAVE THIS JOURNAL. Think of it this way: You will suffer inventory losses if these tragedies struck you, your family, or your home:
When you make a claim with your insurance company the first question they will ask you in such unforeseen and unfortunate circumstances: “Do you have an inventory detailing the items lost and what is the value of those items.” “My Home Inventory Journal” makes it quick and easy to document your valuables and possessions. When you are not under pressure and when you have the time to fill out “My Home Inventory Journal” you won’t have to worry about forgetting some valuable item after it has been stolen or destroyed. Your goal in such a tragedy is to make yourself whole once again and detailing your possessions is an essential tool to do just that.
You should keep one in your home and a duplicate off-premise in a safe and secure location. “My Home Inventory Journal” is dedicated…”To all those who realize it is better to be safe than sorry.” Be one of those people who understand the importance of keeping a list of your home inventory items.
I do hope you consider purchasing one or two of these very inexpensive journals that could save you time, trouble, and money. Go to: https://www.createspace.com/6293349 to purchase your copy of “My Home Inventory Journal”

The United States National Park Service is celebrating its 100th birthday on August 25th of this year. It has been almost one hundred years since an act of Congress was placed in law to protect our national physical crown jewels. The congressional act, enacted on August 25, 1917 as the National Park Service Organic Act, was quickly signed by President Woodrow Wilson. The first director of the new U.S. government department was Stephen Mather. He served as the NPS first director from May 1917 to January 1929. Mather Point with its spectacular views of the Grand Canyon is near the Grand Canyon Visitors Center. That Viewpoint of the Grand Canyon was named after the first Director of the National Park Service.
In honor of the NPS birthday the United States Postal Service is issuing 16 new beautiful, and I mean gorgeous, stamps in honor of this celebration. Above you will see one of the new first-class Forever stamps. The painting used for this stamp was accomplished by the famous U.S. artist Thomas Moran and was painted in 1912. The view of the Grand Canyon is from Hermit Road on the South Rim.
On Hermit Road there are 10 Viewpoints where you can see this same view. I have just completed an update to my “Grand Canyon Guide” that includes each one of those Viewpoints with descriptions and images from the various locations that this new stamp depicts. To be linked to my “Grand Canyon Guide” click on the book cover below and you will be taken directly to my Amazon Kindle sales page. This guide was just updated last month, March 2016.
The United States Postal Service will be releasing and making available all 16 of the new National Park stamps in June of this year. These 16 stamps are excellent representations of all 59 national parks and 411 official units in the National Park Service system.
For more information and images of these soon-to-be-released stamps you can go to these twitter sites: #NPS100 and #NPSStamps.
