So you might notice this site is a bit….wonky.
It’s chaos!! We pulled the blanket off the basket of our business one day, and it all went crazy! October 2022: Our site vanished. Poof. Gone. Webhost deleted it all and took off. Ummm.
So, as of October 2022, we’re rebuilding it all. We restored what we could, then took a moment for a little cry. 🙂 And… we are working on all the missing pieces. We’re here. Expect missing things for a bit. Thanks for your patience.
This, too, shall pass.

The following is a transcript of the video. There might be some grammar errors in this transcript. It’s not a book, it’s a casual transcript. 🙂
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.
From Audience to Zeal: The Workbook
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
