This loan has helped me to pay part of my rent.Though it was not enough to complete but it has given me chance to stay in the room and to continue with the rest of the balance.

Publishing educational books and videos

What I did the first time was pitching the story and led me to discover some flaws which am now working to correct .
I forgot to mention that the story has a song.. and the children and their teachers loved it. Its a funny song on drugs.

I had also two sleepless nights one of which I did nothing ..writers block. I believe it has paid off because the target audience and the story line is clearer.

My plan is to launch it this month. Many thanks to Zidisha

Publishing educational books and videos

Hamjambo - I am required to consult an editor to proof read. Preferably a small establishment( less fees) then have the book reviewed by the staff at the library. Its the only place(in Kenya) where they issue ISBN for 500 shillings(only) for a single version of a book.

I got contacts of two teachers (at the forum)who am consulting as am developing the content. The other objective is to get it on Amazon.

Fortunately i had not printed many copies but it really got me to actually do one..amazing. You have a serious dreamer here..

As per the arrangement I will pay the loan back today. I will get back soonest with the next proposal.

Besten Dank!

Publishing educational books and videos

Hi people, at the library promoting the book 'Sema Hapana'. I was given the opportunity at an event organised by one of the local media stations for children. The children came along with their parents and some with their schools(4) and teachers.

I printed ten copies which I gave out (same day). The librarians also requested some for review as they noted that the book though appealing did not have an ISBN number. The teachers were impressed by the art work and the simple story line. A few errors were highlighted and I was thrilled to be corrected.

I will have to correct the few errors and the book should have its space in the library..complete with ISBN.
