Free Books Given Away at Workshop
I wanted to update you on the progress of my book getting published. It looks like it may come out sooner than thought. I will try to give you a publishing date as soon as I know it.
I will be doing a workshop in Asheville, NC on April 21st. If you are going to the NEA-R Eastern Regional Teacher’s Conference there, I hope you will take the workshop. I have lots of goodies to give away.
I have to tell you that God worked all this trip out for me. I am just a local farm boy/retired teacher from Salem, Oregon who happens to have a book coming out on how to survive in the not so friendly world.
The title: “Signs of Hope: Ways to Survive in an Unfriendly World, is very timely. The word “hope” is a buzz word right now. People are seeking hope.
The fact that I was chosen from Oregon to do a workshop clear across the nation in North Carolina, is nothing short of a miracle.
NEA In Washington D.C. found out from my local Uniserv consultant, that I had written a book. That happened to be exactly what they were looking for.
They contacted me and invited me to do the workshop. They are paying the air, room, and food. (I could get used to this!)
My publisher is providing five books to give away during the workshop. There will even be a pre order form for the attendees to order the book before it even comes out. (YAHOO!)
The contact person told me that there was a limit of 50 people allowed to sign up for the workshop, and it is already full. They are allowing some standing room only people to come to the workshop.
So, this little ole retired teacher/author will have an open gate to plug my book and sell some books in an all expense paid trip to Asheville, NC. Can’t beat that.
The cover design is finished and I am very pleased. It has a picture of a man at the ocean holding out his hands to the skies and looking for hope.
The back cover is waiting for the publicity designer to OK. It is a very precise and explosive message to those who are hurting.
I will have business cards and post cards done before my trip to North Carolina, so I will have those to hand out as well.
My publisher will also provide handouts for the workshop to make it a very good experience for all of the attendees.
Keep checking here for more updates. It will a fun ride from now on. Things are rolling very fast!!
