Hello and Welcome!
A Very New Hello and Welcome!
Experience, that famous teacher, sometimes says it’s time to do more than teach. That’s why back in June 2011, it looked like a good time to shift in the balance of teaching and writing. It was time for less teaching and more writing. But writing was changing, or at least publishing was. The world of books was becoming digital.
If you’ve logged years and years as a language lover, a word nerd, a literature fanatic, then you wonder exactly how to make the shift to the digital universe. Or at least I did. First, it’s the papers from conferences that start being published electronically -- Frost articles. But that’s not all. And when an invitation to an innovation shows up, after you look at it, you leap.
Writing books was starting to include e-books. The first opportunity I found — and grabbed — let me transform some of my earlier books (with my re-writing and updated research) into e-books. The e-publisher (NewWordcity.com) would distribute through major global providers of content [http://www.barnesandnoble.com/c/nancy-nahra] Right away -- things happen fast when you’re dancing digital -- along came the chance to do other e-books that would be entirely new.
Then came the luck. The publisher asked for a list of people I’d like to write about in short biographies, followed by a green light to write those. And not much later, a request for longer versions of a few of those.
That’s the background of “Amelia Earhart Flies into History,” the one that turned out to be so lucky http://www.amazon.com/Amelia-Earhart-Flies-History-ebook/dp/B009R5FURC
That e-book happened to be published hot on the heels of the news story about finding a part of Earhart’s plane.
So that’s what I’ve been up to. Teaching less, writing more, and still traveling, all the different ways of keeping up.
