Silver Award for 10 Ballet Dancers

cover of 10 ballet dancers book and a graphic of the IBPA silver awardWhat an absolute honor this month, during the online ceremonies of the “Benjamin Franklin Book Awards” from the Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA), that we learned our book “10 Ballet Dancers” has been awarded a SILVER medal in the category of “Interior Design: Children’s and Young-Adult Books.”

So many people make a book “happen,” and we are grateful for every person from our family, staff (much of which is family), authors, illustrators, and those in our resource “tool kit” who we call upon to make the magic happen.

Receiving the BFA has been a dream since we created the “official” company in 2015. We’d say to all of you who are working towards making something great in the arts: please stay with it. Work and focus on getting to your own levels of excellence. While art and books in themselves are reward enough, to have a book honored like this is both humbling and inspiring.

So, You Want to Publish Your Book? (Workshop)

So, You Want to Publish Your Book?

Author, Speaker, Healer, Teacher?

We have a new workshop for you. Also, see the video below. First thing you must know: we’re different as a publisher. Our first concern is helping you as an author (or other creative) develop the mindset and carer path that will help you reach out to your audience and readers, building a stable future. It’s not just about “writing a book.” Rather, we’re about helping you succeed with your next book…and beyond. 

We focus on publishing nonfiction books in the areas of the arts and creativity. We also publish kids’ books and collections of world tales. We do not publish fiction such as novels outside of some collections of stories. Regardless of your genre, our workshop will help you come to understand your modern publishing options.

Let’s Start With Some Truths.

“I want to publish a book.”

We know you have the dream. We’re authors and speakers, too.

Our staff wishes you a fine slate of the Winter Holidays of Light and Family. With our team spread out in both hemispheres, we know it may or may not actually be winter where you are. Nonetheless, best wishes to you in the time of the solstice.

We’re running a very light schedule. Everything is moving forward, but if you call the office, you might not get someone to answer. Feel free to email us at staff@smalltoothdog.com between now and January 2nd. There are still a few Instagram and Twitter posts that will pop up. Come follow along if you’d like.

Tickets for all events (both free and gated) can still be purchased at this Eventbrite page or this Eventbrite page.

We’re looking forward to many more books in 2020 and some fantastic events offering education and entertainment.
