Doffing my editor hat and replacing it with my author hat, I'm pleased to say that my children's book, A WHALE'S TALE (Savant 2009), the first in Savant's successful "Color-Me-Please" children's series, just passed the 2,500 sales mark and my second work in the series, THE TURTLE DANCES (Savant 2013) is finally gaining sales momentum. Just before Christmas, I held a public get together at Kokua Health Foods Market and sold 240 copies of the two works, basically exhausting my author supply. As far as my newest manuscript in this series, THE GECKO SINGS, I had a new idea over the holidays and so it's back to the drawing board for a complete rewrite.

In Wyoming we are gearing up for a 100,000 visitors coming around 08/21/2017 to view a total eclipse of the sun. We are having a festival, the Wyoming Symphony is doing an outdoor POPS concert and there will be an astronomy symposium here in Casper the week before. Casper is right on the line of eclipse as is Jackson. Folks with a lot of interest plan to view it from the top of the Tetons in western Wyoming.

Dan, I'm so happy that you decided to continue with, The Gecko Sings! It sounded like it would be a great story!

THE TURTLE DANCES by Daniel S. Janik - Excerpt #1 (Family Rated) 

[1] 

"Chapter 1 - Peach Moon

 Viewed from the middle of the bay, the night would have been pitch dark, but for the huge, round, blushing pink Hawaiian moon, resting like a big ripe peach just above the horizon. Above and behind, the sky, a black velvet blanket, was dusted with pin-point stars. Ahead, along the sandy beach, the evening trade winds rustled the long fronds of tall coconut trees growing on the far side of a sidewalk that wandered behind low mounds of cool, wet sand. 

 The beach was pretty much as Isla, the Green Sea Turtle, thought it should look, taste and feel from her childhood memories. Of course, it wasn’t exactly the same. There were small differences—the coarseness of the sand granules, their slightly cooler temperature, and something she couldn’t quite put her flipper on..."

Isla, a Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle resting on the beach at Waikiki, notices a dance couple practicing a partner routine for a dance competition. Intrigued, she decides she, too, wants to dance, and more so, partner dance. But how to do it? 

Written for adults to read aloud to their children, and youth to 16 years of age to read and enjoy. Lavishly illustrated in black and white for reader coloring opportunities.

The third in the Savant "COLOR-ME-PLEASE" children's book series.

THE TURTLE DANCES

Available worldwide from Savant Books and Publications, on Amazon.com, and at fine bookstores everywhere.

Daniel S. Janik

Lynne, you're located in DC? That's wonderful! I'm currently a student at George Washington University and moved away from Virginia last January.

It must be a bit crazy in DC right now. Last night there were protests in Waikiki and Honolulu.

Yeah, THE GECKO SINGS took a new turn when our house gecko (yes, we have a house gecko -- many of us to in Hawaii as they eat any cockroaches and mosquitoes that might be hanging around) started squeak-clicking the other day when the sky darkened and the sun disappeared for awhile. It cooled down and the gecko ran across the kitchen floor to hide under the refrigerator, the warmest spot in our unheated condo. After voicing his or her protest, it ran back across the kitchen floor and hid under the stove, the second warmest place in the house. Everyone seems to be protesting these days! :-) That gave me an idea, which I'm hoping to put down in writing after the chat. Well, I guess not writing, but at least on my computer. How authoring has changed since I started in the early 60's!

A lot of people are here for the Women's March on Washington.  They are hoping for one million.
Hard to focus between all the events yesterday and today.

Eleonor, are you studying remotely?  I think you're in Hawaii now.
