The Key to Unlocking your Writing Potential...Dare to Dream~BIG!

Happy New Year! 2012 is sure to be a fabulous year chuck full of amazing new discoveries. If you are thinking of writing, like to write or have a child or classroom of students who like to write, here are some sites we recommend that provide advice on writing, pay for writing and stand as a good educational resource for writers young and old.

If you have a site that you like or follow an agent who is super fabulous and blogs about writing, please share.  It is in this collaboration and sharing of knowledge that we all grow and learn.

May we continue to seek knowledge in all things,

Unlock the Teacher LLC Charity eBooks are Almost at 100 in Sales Since March Promoting Literacy Month

Book II in the "Katie's Adventure" Series~"Katie's Exploring Adventure" written and illustrated by 1st Graders

Good Morning Everyone,

We hope you had a wonderful Memorial weekend with family and friends.  Trisha, Sue and I had some much-needed down time with our families.

As the school year is winding down for many, we wanted to give all of our supporters an amazing update on our eBooks we published in March to promote literacy…where proceeds go directly to designated schools to support their literacy funds.  Our sales are exciting as we are close to reaching 100 books sold.  Thank you!

We are also excited to share that the “Katie’s Adventure” series is now giving our Mysteries of the Beach and Phonics Friends a run for their money in sales.  Katie’s Exploring Adventure written and illustrated by Mrs. McMahon’s 1st grade class is selling in the multiple digits in just two weeks out.

What a wonderful thing for these 1st graders to experience…to see the value in  reading and the whole creative writing process.

In fact, we have been approached by a couple of companies to work with us to create book apps and one company out west that we are watching for a possible future relationship in academic eBook apps…please keep us in your thoughts as we discern the best possible way to promote literacy and to make a difference in the world around us.

Next year will be exciting as we will continue to go into schools to provide  “ePublishing and Writing”  Workshops for our youth and curriculum alignment (Common Core State Standards) assistance to our great educational colleagues around the United States…and possible overseas contracts too 🙂 .

We would love to come to your school to provide writing, ePublishing or Anti-Bullying Workshops for your students and get them excited about  learning, writing, and publishing work and collaborating for a better tomorrow.  For detailed information, please visit our website @ www.unlocktheteacher.com or email us at teachme@unlocktheteacherllc.com or you may email me directly at Denise@unlocktheteacherllc.com

Thank you to all the teachers, students and principles that have invited us into their classrooms and schools this year.  Thank you to all the wonderful readers who send us positive encouragements via WordPress, twitter, our website or facebook…THANK YOU!  If we did not have you to help fill our buckets, we would not be able to do all that we try to do.

May your week be filled with many “a-ha” moments!

Denise
