I've been working with Capstone Press for two years. I'm in the final stages of my sixth project. Last Winter, I had the joy of holding my very first published book in my hands (January 2010, TAURUS, VIRGO, & CAPRICORN: ALL ABOUT THE EARTH SIGNS). Since then, I've worked on four more nonfiction titles. It's been quite a ride, but it doesn't seem quite real until you hold the hard copy! Thank you Capstone Press! (For anyone thinking of getting into work-for-hire, I've had a great experience.)
In January 2011 (that's, like, two weeks away!), three of my titles will be released. They've been viewable on Amazon for a couple of months. But this week, the new titles were posted on the publisher's website.
The very first assignment I received from Capstone (WHO REALLY DISCOVERED AMERICA?) is one of the three coming out in January. I'm particularly excited about this one. I think kids are really going to like it. Cool cover, right?
The other two are: OUR SUN and STARS. Suffice it to say, anything related to the sky is popular with my daughter and her class. I'm going to be a hero in the 2nd grade this spring. I can't wait to show them!
Yes, I'm still working on my fiction (albeit at a snail's pace right now), but I wanted to share the excitement. Nonfiction is a blast to write, and seeing the progress and the end result is priceless to my writer's ego.
Happy Holidays to all!
