I'm writing a book for Carson Dellosa!
I am so excited today! I did a freelance content review for Carson Dellosa last November. I had sent them a proposal that was ultimately rejected but was offered to do a freelance content review for a possible manuscript that they were considering on publishing. I liked doing the review and hoped to hear from them in the future for other freelance projects. Unfortunately, I hadn't heard from the since, until today! This morning, I received an email from Carson Dellosa asking me if I was interested in writing a book for them! You can imagine my surprise! I wanted to write back and say, "YES! YES! YES!" But I took a deep breath and sent a more controlled reply. I can't go into much detail about my book right now. It is for the k-1 age group, which is in my favorite "early childhood" group. I have a tight deadline but I know I can do it. I am a full time preschool teacher in a public school so that means all of my extra time at home I will have a laptop stuck to my lap. But, that's ok. I am very excited about this project. Being an Early Childhood Teacher, I have always loved the books and learning materials that Carson Dellosa offers to teachers/parents. It was always a goal of mine to get published by them. This is definitely a good day. When I can post more about the title of the book and when it will be available, I will. Until then. . . .it's time to get busy writing!!!
