Subject: Steve Baty Article / Mourning Dove Speaks
http://www.authorsden.com/visit/viewnews.asp?AuthorID=2092 will link you right to the image (and excerpts) of my most fun *Prime Time* interview to date!
And recently, I wrote a children’s book, “Mourning Dove,” co-written with my mother. It is the true account of a conversation between backyard dove and human, and involves the first nature lesson a preschooler experiences (reluctantly). Another theme of "The Mourning Dove" involves respect for nature as passed through generations. We sent the manuscript to Tilbury House Publishers, who then replied lyrically:
Thank you for sharing ‘Mourning Dove.’ It is a loving and peacefully connective story.
Our publishing list is very narrowly focused and limited to only two or three children’s books a year.”
Of course, it was rejected. Maybe word will spread to another publisher?
