Marketing my own eBook > Thinking it appropriate as an auxiliary learning tool for Charter High Schools

I believe this eBook will build enthusiasm and intrigue for multiple subjects, It is a science reference book, cloaked in a science fantasy adventure; replete with real science and resplendent with illustrations; with graphs, charts and links for further investigation.

Entitled,“Adora & Vitali: A Spin on the Matter of Motion”, it is best suited for high school students and accelerated middle schoolers. I believe it will entice kids to learn about a multitude of different subjects, augment the schools academic curriculum.

Adora & Vitali: A Spin on the Matter of Motion

Adora & Vitali: A Spin on the Matter of Motion

I just decided to post this letter of introduction which I’m sending to Charter Schools, to each of my blogs, since perhaps someone who’s involved in education, eBook marketing and publishing, with an affiliation with Charter Schools or knows-how in marketing an educational eBook, to provide me with advice or send someone my way!

It’s not finished, but I thought I’d start with the back-end, or front-end, getting it out there.

…I’m looking for the appropriate person/department (academic materials, material acquisition) to market my eBook, which I believe will be of interest to students as an auxiliary learning tool.

This science fantasy adventure involves a spiritual quest (no religious affiliation), full of art and science. The adventure involves the quest of a young woman and the characters she meets in her journey, into an upside-down world. Not really upside down, but a place affected by electromagnetism that has lower gravity levels as one climbs to this place. The people there, where the main character is journeying to, have a correspondingly intrinsic capacity of transparent thought. They are conscious of each others’ thoughts and consequently incapable of telling lies. Yet most of the story takes place as Adora journeys there – as there could be sequels!

Here are the first two pages of the Table of Contents (subject to change) but giving you a gist of the contents.

The approximately 150 page eBook (Completion end of June, 2017), is designed to be read from beginning to end, or to be read in segments. Almost every page introduces a particular subject; including graphs, charts and links to further investigation of that topic. The online Table of Contents and Bibliography allow the reader to choose from various educational subjects, ranging from biology, climatology, and geography to physics, These scientific topics of inquiry are introduced as they arise in the story; with the inference that these hypothetical events in a fantastical environment, could actually transpire.

Here’s a section of the bibliography, also subject to change. I’m using google docs to alphabetize the bibliography by subject.

Adora & Vitali: A Spin on the Matter of Motion has a plethora of art accompanying the science links, providing the reader with the capability to further investigate a topic. It is a colorful and refreshing learning tool for students and adults. The eBook is a stepping stone of intrigue for subsequent exploration into a multitude of scientific topics.

I’m an independent contractor who has been writing two blogs since 2009, I’m particularly interested in environmental sustainability, renewable energy, (DIY) do-it-yourself practices to reduce one’s carbon footprint, reinvesting in the community and especially the topics of wildlife and animal habitat preservation. I participated in a 2 week educational forum about the environment in Paris, during the COP21 Climate Talks in Paris, http://www.placetob.org/en/ As a writer, artist, musician and composer, I have no umbrella organization presently supporting me financially. I welcome any suggestions you may have regarding the eBook world of publishing, as I have yet to approach any publishers. I can provide you with additional sections of the book to view its layout and presentation.

Final metamorphosis of the ‘eBook Trailer’ for “Adora & Vitali: A Spin on the Matter of Motion”

In fact, it is continually being revised! Here’s the sneak preview of my eBook, of which the best prospective readers are more than likely the cyber charter – online schools – and home-schooling groups!

“Adora & Vitali: A Spin on the Matter of Motion”

I’d say it has reached its final metamorphosis! Basically, other facets of ‘life’ got in the way !-))

Dictates of What is Considered Newsworthy | Continued Earthquakes Christchurch, New Zealand |

Several days ago I learned of the ongoing earthquakes that have been crippling New Zealand.  I wasn’t informed by the major news networks, but through a phone conversation with a family member.  To further inform myself, I did a google search,  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2011_Christchurch_earthquake and wikipedia corroborated that the 7.1 magnitude Canterbury quake of September, 4th 2010, was followed by a series of earthquakes and aftershocks in the region throughout that year, leading to a deadly quake on February 22nd, 2011 in Christchurch, followed by a multitude of aftershocks and swarm of earthquakes since.  These have continued in 2012.

Having recently returned to the United States from Berlin, Germany to visit my parents, I join them in their evening ritual of watching the NBC nightly news TV broadcast with Brian Williams.  With respect to the fact that the devastation has been so great and the horror perpetuates, my question is, why has this not been considered newsworthy?  Classified as strong, to destructive and violent – often measuring above 5.0 on the Richter scale – these quakes occurring within a 20 mile radius of Christchurch, the second largest city in New Zealand, have caused destruction so great, that the communities have not been able to rebuild.

Regardless of the fact that this is located on the other side of the world (from the USA), I would think that it is of more import than the Republican circus.  If dozens of recurring earth quakes of this magnitude were happening consistently in Los Angeles or San Francisco, coverage of this would inundate our television news broadcasts.

It took my sister, residing in England, who conversed with a woman from New Zealand while each waited in line for the new iPad to be released, for this information to circulate.  Geological fault-lines running within the area, similar to that of the Albertine Rift, the western branch of the East Africa rift, is the source of the activity.
http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2011/11/albertine-rift/draper-text  This National Geographic article describes not only the geological characteristics of the Albertine rift, but also the paramount social unrest in this fertile area, rich in natural resources and territorial competition; man against man, man against animals, man against nature.

Surely, the media conglomerates and U.S. government had been aware of the genocide in Ruanda when it was at its height, and the atrocities occurring in Uganda and the Congo (countries adjacent to the Albertine rift).  Is the assessment of the gravity of what is considered noteworthy or newsworthy; decided as to whether we are trading partners, what resources there are to tap into, the GDP of the country or how the economic entities within the involved region list on the stock exchange?

It is comical how politicized and economically driven what is considered ‘news’, according to the major U.S. networks.  It appears that it takes private individuals with video cameras, such as the ‘Kony’ epidemic, http://www.kony2012.com/ or feature films, to alert and inform the American public; individual’s rallying to bring events involving humanitarian and natural disasters to the public’s attention.  This same sister who had worked in the CBS New York news department for years, alluded to this fact.  What was designated, and often decided within the last minutes before air time, as newsworthy, often dangles on someone’s agenda.
