CHILDREN'S ANTHOLOGY UPDATE
The anthology project we're doing with the Searcy County School District has had a few interesting turns in it. We've had to shift our project focus and audience, but the outcome is even more exciting.
Instead of publishing the fictional works of twenty 8th graders, we'll be publishing the poetic works of sixty-eight 7th graders! The poems should be in to us by the end of next week, and we'll begin layout and editing immediately. The artist we're commissioning to paint the cover has already been notified. Our goal is still to get these kids their books by the end of the year.
Our Fundraiser has come to an end. To our surprise, we've pulled in $450! That's $150 more than our original target goal with the kickstarter campaign. We're humbled and honored by the outpouring of support from community, family and friends. Thank you so much for helping to make this project a reality. As the eighth-grader's writing projects evolve, we'll be posting updates here and on facebook.
We're at the half way point of our kickstarter.com fundraiser campaign, and have already received $200 in pledges! The support from the community has been inspiring, and we're confident that this exceptional educational opportunity will soon be a reality.
If we meet our original goal of $300, we're going to set a stretch goal to commission a local artist to produce the cover image, which will definitely enhance the value and presentation of the book.
We now offer the following editorial services:
* Proofreading, Editing and Layout Design
* Biographical and historical documentation
* Commemorative editions
* Ghost writing and Coaching
* eBook conversions
* And more

Terrapin Hollow Press is excited to announce the upcoming project A Trail of Wilted Posies: How the Hippies Lived On. This book will continue from an extensive interview series done twenty years before. It explores what happened with hippies when the counter culture movement fizzled, how many of them bought rural acreage and strove to live in accordance to their values.
The project will be told via narrative non-fiction, and will follow the lives of several people who once called themselves hippies. It will showcase the communities they created or enhanced, the social dilemmas and environmental causes they championed, and their view of the world today.
A Trail of Wilted Posies: How the Hippies Lived On is slated to be published in the fall of 2014.
