About Lit Up guest, Linda F. Radke: Linda F. Radke is the president of Story Monsters LLC and publisher of Story Monsters Ink® magazine. For more than 30 years, she has been ahead of the game in producing and marketing award-winning books for all ages. Clients and the media describe Radke as an industry leader in creativity, innovation, and customer service. She has received numerous publishing, public relations, and marketing awards, including being named “Book Marketer of the Year” by Book Publicists of Southern California. Tireless in her efforts of helping authors make their dreams a reality, Radke’s motto is, “You can’t compromise on quality. Do it right or don’t do it all!”

Story Monsters Ink magazine mentioned in this interview

Radke’s foray into publishing began with a desire to print a how-to book to complement the household employment agency she owned. For Radke, teased on more than one occasion about having “printer’s ink in her veins,” the experience of publishing the book was exhilarating, which prompted her to change careers without looking back. In 1985, Radke launched Five Star Publications, Inc. She went on to add marketing and publicity services, networking opportunities, and special event coordination with the goal to help deserving authors achieve visibility.

A former special education teacher for grades K-12, Radke is dedicated to helping kids develop a love for reading and writing. To that end, she created the Story Monsters Approved! designation program which tells parents, teachers, and librarians they are giving children the very best. In 2014, Radke published her very first magazine, Story Monsters Ink, which has been named among the “great magazines for kids and teens” by School Library Journal. Since that time, Kids Can Publish has been merged with Story Monsters Ink. On the heels of the success of the Story Monster brand, in 2016, Radke founded Story Monsters LLC to bring all of her services together under one umbrella. Today, Radke continues to target and brand the services Story Monsters LLC offers to authors, children, parents, teachers, and librarians with programs such as the Dragonfly Book Award Contests, School Express Press, SchoolBookings.com, and AuthorsandExperts.com.

Radke is also a member of the Children’s Book Council, National Federation of Press Women, and Independent Book Publishing Association. Based in Chandler, Arizona, Linda F. Radke is passionate about her work and is invested in serving her community. Radke’s personal hobbies include camping, photography, and enjoying time with her family and their German Shepard, Riley.

Books mentioned on air:


 Shadows of Hope (Barbour, April 2018)
 A story of hope in the aftermath of inconceivable betrayal and broken dreams.
What if you struggled with infertility but unknowingly befriended your husband’s pregnant mistress?
What if the woman you were seeing behind your wife’s back gets pregnant, threatening your job and   marriage?
What if your boyfriend never told you he was married and you discover you’re pregnant?

Crisis pregnancy worker Marissa Moreau suspects her husband is cheating, but little does she know how close to home her husband’s infidelity hits. College student Kaitlyn Farrows is floundering after a relationship with her professor leaves her pregnant. Soon she lands a job and a support system at the local pregnancy resource center and things seem to be turning around. But when Marissa and Kaitlyn become friends, neither one knows they share a connection-Colin, Marissa’s husband and Kaitlyn’s former professor. When their private lives collide, the two women must face the ultimate test of their faith and choose how to move forward as they live in the shadows of hope.
 Table for One (White Rose Press)
 A Daughter’s Redemption (Love Inspired)
 The Captive Brides Collection (Barbour Publishing) Now in large print, hard back edition!

About our guest: Georgiana Daniels is a Christian author, blogger, and homeschooling mom who lives with her husband and three daughters in sunny Arizona. She’s written ten novels, but only 2 have been published with a third one coming out in April called Shadows of Hope. The long wait between published books has given her ample time and opportunity to learn how to wait like a winner.
