December always sneaks up on everyone. It’s a time to reflect and to look forward to new experiences and opportunities. Here at 3 Docs Press, we can’t believe we are at years end! Here are our thoughts as we look back and think ahead.
2017: This was a year full of unknowns and surprises. We finished our first book in the series, got it out to market, had two wonderful launch parties (Lafayette, CO and Portland, OR), received 2 great reviews from The Children’s Book Review and Kirkus, and offered our book up for giveaways on Goodreads and The Children’s Book Review. It’s really been busy, and we have learned so much through this process. It is amazing to see our characters “come to life” in the minds of our readers. We, as authors, are attached to our characters too. We feel proud of them and hope that they can help our readers with learning how to solve social dilemmas. As we leave the year, we look ahead to developing and becoming attached to our new characters too.
2018: We are now writing our new story and have decided on our 4 main characters and the issues that arise during the 2-week timeline. As authors, we travel along with our character’s journeys, and we think through their eyes. We are looking forward to finishing our next book and having both boys and girls give us feedback so we can make it “honest and real”. We are making the attachment to these next characters and are creating the Companion Guide so we make sure our readers have that opportunity to really think about the situations and develop strong relationship and decision-making skills. We can’t wait to finish this process and bring you the next book in our series! Be on the lookout for it in 2018!
We at 3 Docs Press wish all our readers a wonderful Holiday Season and a Happy New Year! May your 2018 be full of fun, wonder, learning, and great decision-making!
