I read one of my children's books to a school that has been actively teaching since the 1840's. Maintaining the school is a community effort. Everyone works to maintain the school, the teachers, the volunteer base....everything needed. It is a beautiful thing to behold. I left that day knowing I have to help too.
I am writing the history of the school and the community. I will present it to the school for them to sell and distribute any way they wish, with any and all revenue derived going to the school.
It is a new kind of challenge for me and one I am really enjoying. I am a stickler for facts. Even my children's fantasy stories are filled with facts. Finding the facts for this story requires the help of all the local historians so I am meeting some of the most wonderful and exciting people.
Debbi and I will soon be publishing a new children's book too. That means I will be writing and marketing at the same time. Should be interesting.......maybe a bit exhausting........but exciting... Life just couldn't be better!
