Hi all,

I just discovered this forum full of kindred spirits. Thank you for being generous with your thoughts and actions.

My interest is in inspiring the next generation to self-actualize on behalf of the environment. To that end, I've written a full-length novel that my daughter (14), her friends, and my adult reviewers all believe is ready for publication. While I wrote it for a YA (young-adult) audience, it seems to appeal to a wide age range.

I'm not interested in making money on this. I'm looking for a way to self-publish, and for a way to distribute the book effectively. I'm hoping to reach parents who see eco-fiction as an entertaining means to both educate and motivate their middle-school and older kids, not to mention themselves.

Is this the right place? If so, I'd be happy to post a link to a .pdf version of the book now, and hopefully a link to a more permanent location on the web after publication. If posting a link isn't appropriate, I could simply email it to anyone interested.

A bit about the book: The title is "Katie Vale: Feet First," the first in a series dealing with environmental themes in a humorous and accessible way. The eighth-grade protagonist, Katie, lives in a fictional city in northern San Diego county. Through a series of mysterious events, Katie and a few classmates find themselves walking to school--something you simply don't do in self-conscious Mission Verdosa--making them a target for ridicule by some, and suspicion by others. Along the way, they team up with a secretive group of mentors and eco-warriors, home-based in a bizarre, mystical old bookstore. Katie discovers that she has the power to change the world as she and her friends navigate small-town politics, corporate espionage, and a seething intercity basketball rivalry.

Please let me know if I'm pushing the boundaries of what is allowed on this forum, and whether another might be more appropriate.

Hi Wayne,

Are you still writing eco-fiction? I'm about to finish my first piece of narrative, but I'm also interested in co-writing, since there're not many people who have chosen the path of eco-fiction writers, I thought I could contact you directly as well. I planned to publish my short story on DeviantArt first, but perhaps creating my own blog is a better idea, because I'm eager to write more and it will be great to have an author's portfolio too.
I was inspired by Dragonfly.eco and still use their writing resources.
