I've been published!

Postby RIP » Tue Sep 19, 2017 3:24 pm

Well, hello friends!

I can't say how awfully proud I am of myself. Last January a friend called telling me he needed someone to kind of "inherit" his auther's contract with a large publisher dealing in scientific aritcles and school material. He knew I was getting deeply into the subject of new media in schoolwork.

Several negotiations later I found myself working on a full lesson plan - including student's material - about social media, its dangers and chances. It's been hard work, pretty much doing a highly scientific paper like the ones in college. In addition to my regular work. While recovering from surgery.

Now I've been published in the name of a large and reknowned insurance company who support education with large sums of money. And three different magazines have - so far - referenced my work as outstanding class material. This has led my publisher to nag me to finish a recently deceased' author's work. I had to decline for health reasons but soon I am going to work on fake news in social media.

You can find a link here:

It's in German of course but if you are so inclined, go ahead and look into the .pdf named "Arbeitsblatt 2". It's actually very cool to see someone found your written word to be worthy of hiring an actual artist to create cliparts for you.

Love,
RIP
Life is very similar to boxing. Defeat is not declared when you fall down. It's declared when you can no longer get up.

Some people just want to watch the world burn... not because of the pretty colors but because after the fire, there comes rejuvination.
