I love it when new books come in the mail.
About a year and a half ago I did a bunch of books for a Korean publisher. An editor sent me an email asking me to write for them. I expressed interest yet wasn't sure that anything would come of it. I ended up doing 13 books for their very young early/pre-reader program. They use books in English and the book on tape to teach English in the school. They're short and simple but the illustrations are adorable. One of my favorites is My Dog which they chose to illustrate using a Sapsali or Sapsaree dog which is an ancient Korean breed that was going extinct and they want to be able to include it in lessons about the dog history. Some of the books have songs and music written on the last page and all have some extra teaching activity written into the last few pages.
Writing lesson of the day? You don't have to walk through every door of opportunity that comes your way but take a good look at all of them. You just might find the perfect fit for you. The timing of working on these books was perfect for me because I was recovering from a major shoulder/back/neck injury and really couldn't manage to concentrate on writing a novel. You won't find these books in the bookstores or on Amazon but they'll be fun to share at school visits. I can't wait to for the rest of them to arrive.
Write on right now.
