Tuesday I talked to two of the teachers involved in Crescent Elks Middle School's Language Department. There is excitement involving "Taming the Mountain's Blowing Wind" and the possibility that it might be used in their school. Currently, the teachers are reviewing the book, and will bring it before the school board. In May or September, though we are shooting for May, I will hopefully get to go and speak with the students,hopefully generate interest in my book, and if nothing else then hopefully inspire them to consider careers in writing.
One of the subjects I intend to touch on is writing and it's place in publishing. I am quite excited.
I have also taken several photos during my trip, quite a bit of time was spent out in nature. I don't know about creating a photo book, but I am considering including photos in the next poetry book I will release.
I am also still interested in looking over submissions from other authors in fiction and non-fiction categories. I have received a few inquires since deciding that I wanted to publish not just my own works, but so far they were for formats that would not have been cost effective for them (I sincerely do hope that they were able to find people able to get formats better suited), or in need of revision so that what was being conveyed was understandable.
For inquiries, please email ladyrainstardragon (at) hotmail.com and include "submission inquiry" in the subject line.
