Teacher-Authors–Help me launch my latest prehistoric fiction

If you’re a teacher-author, I’d love for you to share this HS-level book with your community. In return, I’ll share yours with mine!

A boy blinded by fire. A woman raised by wolves. An avowed enemy offers help.

In this second in the Dawn of Humanity trilogy, the first trilogy in the Man vs. Nature saga, Lucy and her eclectic group escape the treacherous tribe that has been hunting them and find a safe haven in the famous Wonderwerk caves in South Africa, the oldest known occupation of caves by humans. They don’t have clothing, fire, or weapons, but the caves keep them warm and food is plentiful. Circumstances make it clear that they can’t stay, not with the rest of her tribe enslaved by the enemy. To free them requires not only the prodigious skills of Lucy’s unique group–which includes a proto-wolf and a female raised by the pack–but others who have no reason to assist her and instinct tells Lucy she shouldn’t trust.

If you’d like to know a little more about Laws of Nature, here’s the trailer.

If you’re an Indie teacher-author, you know that our most powerful marketing tool is word of mouth. We don’t have a big publisher behind us or an agent that pushes us out to the world. What we have is each other, telling our friends about the latest great book we’ve read.

I need your help

If you’re willing to help me promote my latest book, here’s how it works:

  • You agree to tell your community about my latest book (via a blog post), Laws of Nature at some agreeable date between July 14th-July 31st (or a custom date that works better for you).
  • I will include a link to your books and blog on the Book Blast post which will headline my blog for about two weeks. I want this to work for your marketing as much as mine!
  • Once you sign up, I’ll send you everything you need–blurbs, marketing pieces, videos, quotes. You use what you want, what suits your blogging style.
  • Just sign up below or on this Google form.


The form gives you options for what type of post you’d like. I can

  1. answer a series of pre-designed questions–you won’t know what they are until you get them
  2. send you one of thirteen newly-written articles about writingyou choose but it’s first-come-first-serve. I hope this helps drive traffic to your site.
  3. be interviewed by you

I’ll publish a list of everyone who’s helping me on my blog with links to your post and your latest book. Last year, it looked like this:

Questions? I’m at [email protected].

Thanks in advance for signing up!
