Bolstering youth art and creativity through indie publishing.

Being an independent author gives us the freedom to do as we please. Of course the ultimate goal is to gain readers, reviews, and respect among our peers (and make money).

However it is also allowing me to showcase the artwork of an extremely talented local youth. Had my new book gone to a publisher, this would not be accepted. It also happened by chance.

How did it all come about?

My draft for Unfamiliar Territory, a kids chapter book, was handed off to a co-worker’s niece just for fun. He’s bragged about her drawings in the past. After she received the book he asked if she could make some art for the book. I said yes, that would be great. It’s a good feeling to know that my words inspired her imagination. And then he showed me images of what she was creating and I was blown away. This girl’s talent is stunning.

I don’t want to give away all the pictures in the book, so here is one teaser.

And all this makes holding the paperback even more enjoyable. Check out, Unfamiliar Territory on Amazon today.

About the artist: Victoria is 14, she enjoys art and anything to do with literature. She likes coffee way too much to be healthy and is a night owl who hates mornings. She’s passionate about music, it’s her main source of inspiration and would rather live in a fictional world where she can own a sword.

Be open to looking for youth to support and inspire and be proud to be indie.

New video format Doodly

Here’s a fun new format for us writers – a video making program called Doodly.

I decided to give it a try to play with idea’s for book promo’s and to entice kids to read more.  I took a book idea I had, which I have not yet found and artist for, and turned it into a little read along video.

Even if kids books aren’t your cup of tea, check it out and see if this program can fit into something you’d like to create.

 

This is my first project, so I’m still learning the ropes. I am hoping to produce some fun book commercials and other kids books in the near future.

Until next time, happy writing!

Hi everyone, so you may be curious as to my lack of blogs of late.

My small thank you for your patience and here’s to new releases coming soon!

Imagine that?

People are always asking where writers get their ideas from. I’ve written about this before, as have many other writers. But here is a twist for you; it’s also the reason my grammar is so horrendously bad.

Okay maybe not the only reason-I have a less than stellar education-put that aside for another day.  Today I want to try and explain my mind to you.

This should be interesting.

Or not…

When I am writing, whether it’s a blog such as this or as simple as my grocery list, I don’t see words before me, I see images. The pictures or visions in my mind never shut off. Even when I’m reading, which is how I can miss so many errors… I have to concentrate hard to see them.

An easy example. I wrote a grocery list as:

Zety Doritos

mixed preztezls

tomamtoses

And why would I write like that? Well my note pad doesn’t have auto-correct which I rely on heavily. And as I was writing I was seeing the burnt orange large bag of Zesty Doritos and the exact shelf they are in in the store.  Same with the mixed Pretzels, I saw the bag, which I now recall are named, Munchies, and again where they are located. For the tomatoes, I saw the big mound of almost ripe, juicy, red, tasty veggies and a few meals that required them. 

So if you catch a few missed errors (I do pay for professional editing by the way, no one is perfect) in my novels, please know it’s not that I don’t care. It’s that my imagination has the better of me, and I’m gad for it! My insane imagination creates the plots, characters, and everything that befalls them.

If only I could draw!

And what I was my mind seeing as I wrote this? Why I recalled writing the list, where I was standing, what I was wearing, who I was talking to, and laughing my ass off when I actually looked at my spelling.

That’s my story and I’m stick to it – what’s yours?

The other is Red Cape Publishing

Both are worth checking out as they have a multitude of differences, the only similarity is that they are real people, both genuine and not just another sight to take from you and disappear. They stand behind their sites and give 100%.

 

 If you know any other sites that do the same please share with us – happy writing folks. Theresa
