ATTENTION WRITING PARENTS WHO HAVE BEEN PUBLISHED, PRODUCED, PENDING PUBLICATION, ETC.

I am putting together a book of interviews with writing parents called BURNING THE MIDNIGHT OIL: How We Survive as Writing Parents. For every writing parent out there who has written a book, got a book published, got a script optioned, etc., I would like for you to share your struggles of juggling writing with parenting. What worked best for you? How did you find the time (and sanity) to write? How has being a writing parent helped you personally?

I have written six interviews with writing parents who are authors. To read my interviews, which were written under my pen name, go here:

Chris Gavaler:

If you are interested in being included, please send an e-mail to Dawn at DMCWriter@mail2desert.com . Everyone included will receive a complimentary copy of the book, which will be both an E-Book and print manuscript. At this time, I have the go ahead to submit the book to Booklocker.com for publication. I will put up a notice when I no longer need interviews. Thank you! I look forward to hearing from you!

I am currently working on a nonfiction book that has to do with anyone that has a physical/mental disability thriving as a writer, artist, actor/actress, singer/musician or visual artist (such as sculpting, etc.). And by "thriving" I mean, someone who is able to pursue their creative drive despite their limitations.
 
If you are or know of someone who fits into this category, please e-mail me at the email address included at the bottom of the page with the words "Creativity Book" in the subject line. Thank you!
