Story Monsters Ink Magazine

Story Monsters Ink is a free, subscription-based magazine that gives parents and educators the latest news about award-winning and debut books, profiles on both renowned and newly published authors, upcoming book events, author presentations and more.

President of Story Monsters LLC and former educator Linda F. Radke says she wants children to be actively involved in the publication of the magazine by including book reviews written by children.

"I've wanted to publish a magazine for a very long time, and I am so excited to see my idea become a reality," Radke says. "We want to help parents, teachers and librarians instill a love of reading and writing in their students, and what better way to do that than to give these children an opportunity to participate in the publication of a magazine?"

To submit a book review or to have your book considered for listing in the newly released or award-winning book columns, contact Cristy Bertini at for guidelines.

Authors of printed book reviews receive a free Story Monsters t-shirt for their first published review.

The magazine also features an author profile each month, listings of authors who visit schools, back to school and summer reading guides, listings of newly published books, as well as other articles about book trends, bookstores, author news, etc.

Radke also says, "We have gotten a wonderful response from readers and have already secured some wonderful interviews of very well-known authors for our upcoming issues. And, of course, we have more surprises on the way. Stay tuned!"

Young readers will learn about the wonderful world around them in a monthly column called "Conrad's Classroom" written by the award-winning author and editor of more than 50 science and nature-based books, Conrad J. Storad. He is nationally renowned for his ability to captivate young audiences with well-researched facts about the scientific world.

The magazine's trademark character, the lovable, green Story Monster made its first appearance in 2013 in an awards program called Story Monster Approved! to recognize and honor both seasoned and newly published children's literature authors.

In keeping with its goal of promoting children's literacy, before a book is designated as Story Monster Approved!, it has to pass a rigorous judging process. If the book makes it past the first round of judges of industry experts, the book is then judged by youth judges, teachers and librarians represented from schools across the country who must also endorse the book before it can receive the official seal of approval.

New issues of Story Monsters Ink will be available on the 16th of each month. Printed issues of the magazine are now available for purchase. Visit the for more information.
