Doing Dreams Right; VIDEO 7 (2012 Teleconference)

Meet Teagan Bentley as she talks about Doing Dreams Right!

 

Teagan Bentley is a 12 year old vegan homeschooler (Radical Unschooler) from Arizona.

Her current interests include: ballet, Bollywood dance, Tae Kwon Do, writing, fashion modeling, 3D logic puzzles, computer games, sewing, and fashion design.

Her current BIG dreams include: being a model, professional dancing, and owning a fashion boutique.

Teagan's first book (a middle grade novel), Novel Concept, came out in April 2011(in paperback and Kindle). It was recently released in audiobook form earlier this month (October 2012). This version can be found on iTunes, Amazon, and Audible.

Teagan is also known as the "Hula Hooping Rubiks Cube Girl" in the documentary movie Life in a Day.

 

 

In "Doing Dreams Right," Teagan tells us about the importance of: (1) trying things NOW, (2) trying many things, and (3) trying new things--all in the pursuit of helping you live your dreams NOW, rather than waiting for "some day."

Doing Collaborative Writing Right; VIDEO 3 (2012 Teleconference)

Meet Leslie Schultz and her daughter Julia Braulick as they tell us about Doing a Mother-Daughter Writing Collaboration Right.

Julia Braulick is a homeschooled thirteen-year-old Quaker who loves learning, writing fiction, reading, and her poodle, Peanut. She plans to be a prairie ecologist when she grows up and will be building a solar panel from scratch this fall.

As a girl, Leslie Schultz yearned to be Laura Ingalls Wilder. Now she loves living in Minnesota, reading, quilting, taking pictures, making soup, writing (poetry, fiction, essays), and learning new things with her daughter, Julia, and her husband, Tim.

Leslie is the author of The Howling Vowels, a middle grade book that has been deemed "a sweet modern day Little House story". Julia helped immensely with this book and is the author of its lexicon. And Sometimes Y, the second book in the series, is being written presently.

 

 

 

 

In “Doing a Mother-Daughter Writing Collaboration Right,” author Leslie Schultz and her daughter share how their first project, Do Life Right, Inc. title The Howling Vowels grew out of their homeschooling experiences and describe how they are working as full co-authors on a sequel, And Sometimes Y.

Leslie and Julia explain how they imagine original characters growing and changing, develop new plot lines, introduce new characters, share actual drafting,  resolve differences of opinion, handle writers’ block, and weave details from real life into a fictional world.

TWO BOOK Virtual Book Release Party!

Whoo-Hoo!

We're so excited here at Do Life Right, Inc. to have HomeschoolLiterature.com host a one-day virtual book release party for both THE HOWLING VOWELS and FRACTURED FATE today--Wednesday, November 16, 2011.

When asked recently which of these two books was my favorite, I had to answer honestly: I couldn't possibly choose! Each is so unique in its own way.

THE HOWLING VOWELS by Leslie Schultz, illustrated by Heather Newman, is such a lovely middle-grade novel (set in a fictional town in Minnesota) that it makes me smile in a nostalgic sort-of way. To read more about Leslie, click here. To read more about Heather, click here.

FRACTURE FATE by Caja Coyote, illustrated by Sage Echo Sirotkin, is so full of action, adventure, superheroes, and romance, that it takes me to a different world (all while being set in a real-life town in Arizona). To read more about Caja Coyote, click here.

Our flagship book: WRIGHT ON TIME: ARIZONA

Explore a salted cave in southern Arizona with the fictional RV-living, homeschooling Wright family as they begin their 50-month, 50-state adventure around the United States of America!

Wright on Time: Arizona, Book 1 is Do Life Right, Inc.'s flagship book. It was through writing this first book in Lisa M. Cottrell-Bentley's children's chapter book series that Lisa was able to draw upon her love of homeschooling, learning all the time, and fun family adventures to build a whole new world for homeschooling kids of today to see themselves in. Lisa is particularly excited at how well received non-homeschooling families have found her books.

Wright on Time: Arizona, Book 1 was published in August 2009 and is available worldwide. Through the sales of this flagship book, Do Life Right, Inc. has been able to bring more books about realistic homeschoolers of today to the kids and families who have been craving them for years, only to be told that books about kids like them aren't interesting enough for today's readers. Do Life Right, Inc. is proudly proving that theory wrong!
