Author donates newly published book to hometown of Borger

A Longview author is donating her first newly published book to her hometown of Borger. Tijuana Edwards-Taylor just published her first Christian book titled “The Adventures of Buddy Blue Bug and the Critter of the Gospel,” illustrated by R. Jeneé Wilson. The back of the book states, “The characters of Buddy Blue Bug and his gospel critters are invented to inspire, encourage, and strengthen self-esteem and faith of all folks-young and old alike- ages three to 103, who are young at heart. We are warmly invited to reach out with childlike hope and excitement as Buddy challenges us to expectantly look for God’s signature daily as we involve ourselves in the awesome adventures awaiting in the Kingdom of God.”Tijuana was born in Borger in 1955 and still visits. Tijuana is also a registered nurse and plans to continue writing with the support of her brother and sister Ed Edwards and Star Boston; her children Claton Taylor and Kamma Thompson; and her two grandchildren Dalton Laferney and Mason Colvin. Also playing a large part in her inspiration for this book was her father, Lewis Edwards, “ My dad was also a natural comedian, a clown at heart. I wish he was here to see this,” said Tijuanan.The book is available online at Barnes and Noble, Amazon, Google Books or Xulon Press. She will have a book signing at AND bookstore in Amarillo on June 30, 2012 from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.“I give God all the glory, because He gives us our blessing, and His strength brings life into us,” said Tijuana.A signed copy of this book will also be donated to the Borger Library for citizens of Borger to see.
