Mommy Monday:: Maria Dismondy

Maria Dismondy, a native from Michigan, is a children’s book author who writes about bullying, teasing and friendships and how children can deal with problems they encounter. Maria Dismondy Inc. was created in 2008 after she had two children’s books published.

“Spaghetti in A Hot Dog Bun” was published in August 2008. Based loosely off of Dismondy’s personal childhood experiences, the book encourages children to, “Be who they are and not pretend.” The book has sold almost 40,000 copies to date. Dismondy collaborated with Bob Sornson in 2010 to publish another book entitled “The Juice Box Bully”. Her most recent project is a book about bullying between friends. “Pink Tiara Cookies for Three” will be released in early 2013.

Not only does Dismondy write books for children, she also travels to Michigan schools to speak about the topics of reading, writing and bullying. Within a two-month time span, she spoke to 10,000 children in area schools.

In addition to writing and speaking, Dismondy is a stay-at-home mom. She cares for her daughter while taking online photography classes. Spending time with her daughter is important, so together they read close to 12 books a day. She works on her writing during naptime and before her family is awake in the morning.

Dismondy encourages other mom entrepreneurs to, “Go for the gold (and) follow your dreams and fulfill your passions.” She markets her business through social media via Facebook and Twitter. She participates in book tours, both virtually and locally, and networks through groups she is already a part of. “There is a lot of power in word of mouth!” stated Dismondy regarding marketing through local organizations.

Mommy Monday:: "Cool Conduct: 100 Ways To Make A Positive Impression"

Nicki Donley is the mom author of “Cool Conduct: 100 Ways To Make A Positive Impression.” She published the book in October of last year as a family reference book that helps children feel confident in social situations.

“Cool Conduct” encourages role playing, creative thinking and opportunities for children learn to be responsible participants in school, at home and in their communities. According to Donley, “Cool Conduct” will help children understand what is expected of them and be confident, considerate and active participants in society and is ideal for ages kindergarten to fourth grade.

Donley is the mother of seven-year-old triplet girls, so she said she tries to be really attentive and present to her family. “Usually, I work on business related items late at night,” she said.

To other aspiring mom entrepreneurs, she encourages research. “Many times I have had what I felt was an amazing idea and start to get excited, only to find out it has been manufactured already.”

“Cool Conduct retails at $12.95 at Barnes and Noble and Amazon. However, Market Mommy readers can get a signed copy for just $10 when they e-mail the coupon code Cool10 directly to Donley.
