Beyond Publishing Author Serena Brown Travis is Proud to Announce her New Perfect Penny Positive Children’s Book Series for Kids Book One Launching April 18 Full Story on  by M3NewMedia 4/11/17

Destined to become a classic, The Perfect Penny Children’s Book Series launching Spring 2017 by Author Serena Brown Travis is designed to help children build up their self-esteem in spite of grim circumstances and ultimately change their otherwise doomed perspectives into a positive mindset. Daughter of renowned motivational speaker Les Brown, Serena strategically intertwines disappointment and defeat with messages of encouragement and inspiration.

“Perfect Penny is assisting me in helping spread positivity into the lives of children and adults. You’ll love the tenacity of Perfect Penny. We can all learn from her!” Les Brown

“I’ve always heard, ‘Evil prevails when good men and women do nothing.’ I’ve always wanted to launch a series of motivational books for children helping them to develop positive self-esteem and a renewed outlook on life. While adults can recognize when they need a push or a jolt of motivation, I think children need characters and storylines they can identify with. Along with many parents, I needed more resources and positive readings for my two children and the Positive Penny Series of books will give parents and children motivational tools and strategies from an early age,” says Author Serena Brown Travis, as she proudly continues her father’s legacy.

School counselors especially love how the books tackle stronger subjects including homelessness, absentee parenting, and hunger while finding a glimmer of hope in each story. Serena is well on her way to reaching her goal of having an impact on the lives of children with the first three books being released this spring.


The younger Brown, with Empowerment Products, the name of her company launching the Perfect Penny brand says, “I plan to launch as many inspirational books as possible. The first three books feature Perfect Penny with all of her heart touching childhood hilarity and authenticity. School counselors especially love how the books tackle stronger subjects including parental neglect, homelessness, and absentee parenting while finding a glimmer of hope in each story. The Perfect Penny Positive Words print version was released in February with the E-book releasing on April 18th is now available for pre-order on Amazon for $1.99. Serena Brown Travis will be on WCMH Columbus channel 4 NBC in April to tell more about why she wrote Perfect Penny.

“You will love the innocence of Perfect Penny Brown. She has some pretty tough circumstances to deal with and she seems to always find a positive spin to her story. I believe we are all like Perfect Penny. Life can deal us some major hits, but if we use optimism and faith like Perfect Penny, in the end, we will be okay. If we use our imaginations and never let our situations get us down, like Perfect Penny Brown, we would think life doesn’t seem so bad. I know Perfect Penny Brown’s questions all too well; why was I born in an abandoned building on a floor? Why did my mother give me away? Am I trash? We all question our circumstances, but like Perfect Penny, I imagined a new life for myself and I created it. I am super excited and proud of my youngest daughter, Serena Brown Travis, on the creation of this character and book series. This will help your children get a Perfect Penny Brown perspective on life and help you, the adult, to always find life’s silver linings!” Mamie’s Baby Boy, Les Brown


“I wish I had this series of books when my children were younger…” Brittany T


“As an educator of 30 years I always look for books I can read my first graders after recess and during special times PERFECT PENNY is one of their favorite books. We need more books like “Perfect Penny” for our children and their parents.” Mrs. Sabrina Garcia


Author’s Dedication:


This book is dedicated to the many children and adults who never heard positive words before or after your name. It is dedicated to the folks who never received a wink, pat on the back, hi-five, smile, or hug of encouragement. Perfect Penny was created to remind you of your greatness, your beauty, and unlimited value. You are enough. You can do more than you could ever begin to imagine. You have greatness within. You are indeed perfect!
