2022 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Vero Beach Award Winning Author Releases Heartwarming Story Perfect for Valentine’s Day!


Herndon, VA; February 1, 2022:

Mascot Books announces the release of Olive and the Valentine’s Spell written by Helen Millman with illustrations by Vanessa Alexandre.

Follow along on Olive’s adventure as he overcomes his fear of Valentine’s Day!

Olive is a sweet elementary school boy who is afraid to go to school on Valentine’s Day . . . because he thinks he’ll have to get married! He plans to defeat the “princess of love,” but along the way he learns an even bigger lesson, discovering the true meaning of love.

Winner of the 2022 Family Choice Award, Olive and the Valentine’s Spell is an inspiring children’s book for all ages that shines a humorous light on Valentine’s Day and overcoming your fears.

In her newest children’s book, Helen Millman reminds us that love is in everything we do. Rooted deeply in self-growth and philosophy, Helen draws upon a life that has been rich in diverse experiences. From leaving behind her childhood home in Israel, to her early days of writing and performing music in New York City, to now being a wife, mother, and published author – writing has remained an essential part of Helen’s journey. She encourages her readers to delve into things poignant and familiar to us all, for rarely is there a better place to connect with our own children than together in a beloved book. Helen, residing in Vero Beach, Florida, has three boys ages six, eleven, and thirteen. Olive and the Valentine’s Spell is her second book.

During Helen’s virtual tour, she was notified that Mascot faces an unusual delay with her book’s reprint due to the global circumstance of paper shortage. As a result, the re-stock of Olive and The Valentine’s Spell will arrive sometime over the summer.

Helen wishes for her readers to have something in hand while they wait. Therefore, as a special thank you she offers a FREE gift to go along with the backorders of the hardcover book. You will receive a FREE download of Helen’s Episode initially designed for the schools, virtual students, and homeschoolers. More info is available on her website.
