Road to Publishing - I shopped my book out to many traditional agents, and was met with a lot
of interest. After a long process of back and forth, the consistent
feedback I got was, "it's great, but we don't know if we can sell it".
My book for young people contains no sex or violence, no gratuity of any
kind. I am a teacher, connected in education, and knew my book would
serve a great purpose in a classroom setting. So when I got the feedback
I needed-- that the story was good-- I contacted a local business that
helps people like me self-publish. Nowadays, you don't need the backing
of a major publisher to be a successful author. You just need a good
story and the determination to make it happen.
Book Synopsis - Lincoln Junior High is out of money. For Andrew and Hannah, this means
no sports, no music, and no fun. That is, until the principal begins a
corporate sponsorship program to “Take-Back” the school. A few
advertisements in exchange for cool programs and new technology can’t be
that bad. Or can it?
Disclosure - The questions were answered by the spotlight person in
conjunction with my new feature. I have not read the books. I
received nothing for this post.
