(Press Release) An Arizona-based book from The Small-Tooth-Dog Publishing Group is one of only a handful of titles from Independent Publishers to appear on the September 2, 2019, cover of “Publishers Weekly” magazine. “Don’t Throw Me in the Cholla Patch,” written by Tucson’s Marc Severson and illustrated by Francesco Orazzini, was chosen as one of just 17 books from a curated field of 40 books. The book, an original folktale designed for older children features the plants and animals of the Sonoran Desert as two desert-dwelling tricksters face off in a battle of wits over who gets dinner and who is dinner.

Sean Buvala, the publisher at The Small-Tooth-Dog Publishing Group, says, “We’re honored to be on the ‘Publishers Weekly’ magazine featuring the works of independent publishers the world over. PW is considered the ‘bible of book publishing business’ and features the work of the publishing industry at all levels.”
“Don’t Throw Me in the Cholla Patch” features artwork by Italian illustrator Francesco Orazzini. The story is by Marc Severson of Tucson, Arizona. Featuring a battle of wits between hungry Coyote and the small-but-chatty Woodrat the Packrat, the two meet up under the moonlight in the Sonoran Desert. Will Woodrat be able to talk his way out of this or is he in for a thorny end? The book is intended for kids in the elementary middle grades.

Hey, look, there we are. Hey, folks.
This is Sean Buvala from the Small Tooth Dog Publishing Group LLC based in Arizona. We’re happy to have you on this really brief little presentation and overview, if you will, about contemporary publishing, what that looks like here in the late part of the 2010’s, coming into the 2020’s.
Five things about contemporary publishing.
You can learn more about us at smalltoothdog.com. I’m Sean Buvala. Let’s get started. I have to do my own stunts on these slides. I have to look over here and then change slides. Here we go.
Join publisher Sean Buvala on his Facebook Live streams this week, June 17-21. Visit our FB page at http://facebook.com/smalltoothdog to watch the videos. About five minutes each, Sean goes live at 3pm Pacific (Los Angeles) and 6pm Eastern (New York) U.S. times. See you online.

Enhance Your Learning!
Coming along after the original textbook, Laura S. Packer has a new WORKBOOK (at 92 pages!) companion volume to go with the original A to Z book! It’s a journal, it’s a guidebook, it’s a way to move from idea to implementation.
Designed to be a companion volume to “From Audience to Zeal: The ABCs of Finding, Crafting, and Telling a Great Story,” this workbook contains deep reflections, focused advice, intriguing readings, and active projects that will take your experiences in storytelling and oral communication to the next level. This workbook contains additional materials not found in the book.
Praise for the Workbook!
Laura has created a working text, a highly practical and useful book that is personal, powerful, and poignant. She captures in words and exercises what we need to do and hear. Using it will only improve your work in story. -Kevin Cordi, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Ohio University Lancaster; International Storytelling SIG Chair, National Council of Teachers of English
