Homeschoolers discover us.

Home schooling helps+ families

Ever since we began bringing our family friendly books to the public arena in 1998, adults interested in homeschooling have taken notice of us. Robert met many executives of Canadian and US homeschooling organizations and they often purchased our books for personal use and asked him to bring our books to their area. They love our concept of real history set into an actual, touchable place where they can bring their children to learn more about that area and its history after reading the books.

We have come to understand that homeschooling parents teach by doing … taking their kids to parks, special activities, other towns and countries. As our Australian grandson’s wife is homeschooling 4 of their 5 children in Perth, we were thrilled to send all our books back with them when they visited in 2015. We are told that Homeschoolers love to explore new areas and new situations which helps their child’s awareness of the world and of each other as they adapt to the necessary subjects. They like to use every opportunity possible to teach their precious children something of importance to help them blossom in a world where learning is of the utmost importance. They realize only too well that for their child to be able to earn a good living in the future, he/she must have a vocation they enjoy and can be enormously proud of. These parents take their jobs very seriously by educating the next generations.

We have actually been invited to several conventions and conferences across North America. It saddened us to have to refuse. We are a very small company and self-published authors don’t receive grants to help defray travel and conference expenses but we are always happy to ship books to you or show you how to purchase them Internationally.

So, if you know or are a homeschooling parent and you haven’t discovered our historically correct, educational, heartwarming, family-friendly tales of another century … the 3-book Victoria Chronicles is set in Canada/USA and Lizzie Series are set in London, England. Both Series are on sale NOW. Check the announcement/prices at the top of the Home Page and on our Shopping Cart.

Our books are available in all ebook formats. If you can’t find them on your favourite ebook website, Smashwords is a great choice as you can purchase the same book in many formats (for any ebook reader) with no additional charges! (Revised: Jan /18)

 

Selling your Books to Schools and Libraries – Part 2


Using Skype to sell more Books

Still another great MARKETING TIP … this one from Barbara Terchel, author of Class Act: Sell More Books Through School and Library Author Appearances (see my last post Part 1).

It appears that I have been so busy on whatever I am busy with that I have missed some of the great ways technology is helping authors sell their books today.

Barbara was interviewed regarding how she uses Skype to talk to schools assisted by her special dog, Frankie. It has cut her costs and increased her availability to such an extent that she has used Skype over 300 times for this type of visit. She gives you a detailed step-by-step description of everything you need to do and know, including setting up your studio in your home/office.
