I know that many first-time authors may feel apprehensive about submitting their work. Yes, it's scary, but publishing is a highly-collaborative process. The best manuscripts are created by putting the best teams together. When a manuscript is submitted to Savant, it goes through an editing process that is meant to only bring your best work forward.

Hi Helen,

I have  a list of the poems I have accepted one file. I believe I have about 10 authors.  with the poems you have emailed me, I have about 27 poems altogether.

I can get the acceptances to you by the said date, no problem, but the MSP packages are somewhat scattered throuigh two emaila ddresses, so would I just submit the poem names and the authors? I just want to simplify this as much as I can.

I have to step out for 15 minutes but my computer will be on; I'll be right back. If anyone has any questions for me directly, don't hesitate to send me a private message. [smile]

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

Sincerely,
Daniel S. Janik
Author of the award-winning "Color-Me-Please" children's books,

All right. Dan, what is the update on Nasha Hadad? Also, a friend of mine and I are collaborating on an alternate history about Isabella ( I await some mroe chapters from her), where she does complete the Reconquista but does not expel the Jews.

Would this be a better fit for Savant or Aignos?

Aloha Helen,

I was just curious, inquiring about how the 2017 Savant Poetry Anthology was coming, mainly because of my own excitement. If prose is definitely the bread and butter of publishing, poetry is its heart and soul. I've always loved poetry and look forward to new poetry anthologies. 

You're right that a lot's going on, not only within Savant Books and Publications, but also in publishing and business. The publishing industry continue to evolve at lightening speed, and, SBAP and AP continue to ride the wave. It's not easy with all the old and newest hoopla shouting louder and louder to be heard, and their seemingly opposite approaches to publishing.

If it were only publishing, it wouldn't be so confusing, but add to that the total and immediate businessification of everything in the USA, and you've got one revolution compounded by another. Despite this, I believe that both Savant Books and Publications, and it's new imprint, Aignos Publishing, are well positioned in this otherwise uncertain and rapidly changing world, and will not only survive but thrive over the ensuing years. 

For example, many publishers are shuddering to think of what will happen if and when the USA institutes stiff tariffs on work that is imported. Most "traditional" publishers print in China or Taiwan in "runs" of one to a hundred thousand books at a time. What used to be the least expensive solution may soon no longer be cost-effective. We anticipated this years ago, and print strictly within the USA "on demand." That leaves us sitting pretty while many other publishers scramble to figure out how they will survive in this Brave New World.

Love that cover, Helen, if I do say so myself! And so do potential readers parsing books at Savant Bookstore Honolulu. I think CLEOPATRA UNCONQUERED (Savant 2015) gets picked up and examined more than any other book in our repertoire. It always makes me fantasize Angelina Jolie playing the role of Cleopatra in a movie version of your book!

Hi again, I'm back. Definitely, Dan. The publishing industry has and is changing a lot. As a grad student, studying publishing with GWU, we discuss this quite frequently. However, everyone seems to continue to be optimistic about the future of publishing.

Since we're putting out calls in today's chat, I'd like to put out a Publisher's call for new and upcoming manga artists. I'm looking for several such artists who would like to become involved in a major production project. If you're reading this and are an outstanding manga artist, I'd like to hear from you. Please email me at "savantbooks@gmail.com" and include a letter of introduction and resume.

Yes! Please do, manga artists. I know our EIC will be thrilled; he's a manga lover.

Dan, that is interesting with POD because in the past, I was told that POD was a sign of a 'scam' publisher.

Savant Books and Publications is also looking for outstanding music content for CD's and audio video content for DVDs. We currently hold three CDs and one DVD in our catalog, which we sell directly to the public through Savant Bookstore Honolulu, and distribute worldwide directly through Savant Distribution.
