Lisa boldly entered the world of Comic Cons, attending one and holding a booth and a talk at the second. She's always enjoyed talk ing with people at booths, and the two events in the Prescott area were no exception. She worked for months to pull t ogether a representative costume, finally decidin g on a li ght-toned look with horse, art and friendship elements, and an "Abby Wize, World Peace" emblem on the shirt front. In the photo, she poses with two librari an s and two new friends at Fandomania, in the Prescott Valley Public Lbrary. She won 5 graphic novels, which she'll study for things she can use in her own graphic novel of the Abby Wize story!
A couple of months ago, "Abby Wize: AWAY" won an award in a book contest — for a version of the Revised Edition, still underway and becoming even better.
The award was “Finalist, Religious Fiction” with "Best Book Awards," one of several contests run by American Book Fest, www.americanbookfest.com . I found them to be quick, professional and accommodating. I also submitted it under "Science Fiction/Fantasy” and “Young Adult” although my most vocal fans are adults.
If you’d like to be individually notified when the Revised Edition is published, let me know by registering your email at the bottom of this page. I’m aiming for this summer, but God is in control.
June 2018 Long Trailer Update: "Abby Wize: Peace Dreamer," a long trailer that author Lisa Bradley Godward organized and supervised, was awarded a "Finalist" recognition at the Auckland (NZ) International Film Festival! It seems that Kiwis are rooting for a world at peace, also!
May 2018 Update: "Abby Wize: Peace Dreamer" has advanced to the second round of judging in the Auckland (NZ) International Film Festival! Author/Filmmaker Lisa Bradley has contacted the Baha'is of New Zealand to coordinate their attendance at the AIFF in her stead.
April 2018: The filming we did in October on an Abby Wize Teaser has finally found form in a 6.5-minute Trailer/Short Film! Finished just in time to submit to the Prescott Film Festival and the Auckland (New Zealand) International Film Festival!
Based on "Abby Wize: AWAY", the Short Film both introduces us to a visible Abby and hints at the detailed story that could be produced as complete episodes following the chapters in the book.

About 35 people watched "Abby Wize: Peace Dreamer" on May 23rd, 2018 in Prescott Valley, Arizona. Response was positive, and several savvy viewers noticed that it's an unusual combination of a Trailer and a Short film. All said it made them want to see more of Abby's story.
Several books are in the works:
-Activity and Discussion Guide for Book A
to connect with Abby Wize, an unassuming spiritual warrior determined to pursue her own positive growth. Suitable for about ages 11 thru adult (tho Abby's biggest fans are adults; they've had longer to wish for a better world!)
Abby Wize is a horse-loving teen who's suddenly thrown into a future Golden Age, when World Peace has finally arrived! After visiting that fun, fabulous time, how's she going to cope with her regular, not-so-great life back in 2007?
It started with "Abby Wize: AWAY," aka "Book A." Then came the idea of audio books, but it looks like a video version beat out the audio books. Video escapades are in the works! So are sequels! Yay!
From reading the book alone or together, writing the author, writing your own Abby Wize fan fiction, or making the crafts in the back of the book, there are lots of ways to bring the wonderful future world of Peace into your life now!
