Chanter press, come read with us…
That has been Chanter’s phrase, as we look for great reads, new and vintage. We are choosing this moment to renew our site, bringing forward the pieces we loved and creating new ones, because life is a journey, after all. Follow along as we rebuld and add back content over the next weeks. The most important things are the books we will write and those already out:
See Ya, electronic from Lulu for all platforms, and in print from Amazon
Photofinish, electronic on all platforms, from Amazon
In 2016, I continued on with my groundwork to make a Texas law on educating law enforcement about misidentification and constructive response. On March 4, 2020, I spoke at the Congressional Briefing at Brain Injury Day on the Hill.
I came home to Covid-19, self-quarantine and shelter-in-place. As both a writer and speaker, I read the sudden stillness of everyone now at home, and SandPeople, a book for middle school readers that speaks to change we cannot stop, the challenge of dying, and the solving of a mystery became the focus for these months. It will be released on June 17, 2020. The Advanced Reader Copy (ARCs) comments are good. My favorite word from them is poignant, for these are surely poignant times as we miss people and wish for the world we knew. We don’t know how to navigate this new one, so I thought, SandPeople navigates change, perhaps that will be encouragement to keep trying.
The conversations also brought me full circle to the dreams of beginning and new starts. And that brought me to write our first childrens’ book, Dr. Lolly, Girl Vet. Set as a picture bookk, it captures the dreams of a two year old I knew well then, and do now, Dr. Lolly, a real life young woman who dreamed a longtime and grew up to make that dream her real life. true. It brings me great joy to tell this story. Please leave a comment her of email me at ChanterPressBooks@gmail.com if you have any questions or comments.
I hope to see you there!
