"Ed Denecke captured and held the attention of students in grades K-6 by sharing his Dreaming Giant-sized Dreams theme through his story of getting his book published. Emphasizing traits such as tenacity, asking for help, using feedback to improve his work and more, Ed showed how these traits served him well in fulfilling his dream of publishing his own book."
If you have any connection to an elementary school - whether through your own children or through some other means (friendship, business, or mere proximity) - please consider passing on my name to the administration. I promise you that I won't embarrass you by bringing a sub-par presentation!
I am in the midst of more than a year-long research-and-preparation-project for my first chapter book (part of a four-part adventure series). I have another picture book that has already been presented to my publisher. It was enthusiastically received! Hopefully, soon it will be underway! Because I am a new, unknown author being given a chance by a smaller publisher, the process that I am using to get published requires me to invest in a percentage of the cost of producing my books (My first book "What Happens at School When You're Not There?". easily made back my entire investment!). Now I would like to get my second picture book, "The Nap Book", in print. If it is successful, as I believe it will be, then I will re-invest the profits into my adventure book series. Any help that you can give me in making contact with elementary schools (my target audience) will be greatly appreciated. I can send inquisitive school administrators plenty of pertinent information to help them decide if I am a good fit for their 2017-2018 school year author visit.
