I have been a lot less active online for a year or so. In that time, my wife and I have moved from Bothell, Washington to Prescott, Arizona and started a new multi-media company called Shine-A-Light Corp. Our mission is to “shine-a-light” in a world with far too much darkness.
Phase one of getting the new company off of the ground is the launching of Shine-A-Light Press. This division combines our twenty years of experience, Andrea’s running a classroom and mine as both a film/television writer and an author. We are hitting the ground running, producing both books and educational curricula for preschool through high school.
Our commitment is to provide quality curriculum, supplementary material, and literary works that can easily be integrated into your current curriculum and used as either read-alouds or simply for personal enjoyment. Our educational resources exceed most widely accepted learning standards, but many are aligned with state standards and/or Common Core for certification purposes.
The products offered by Shine-A-Light Press are available in both hard copy and digital formats and can be purchased in our public store or are included in our various membership packages. Whether you are a single-family with one child in second grade, a homeschooling co-op serving several grade levels, or a P-12 school with 800 students, there is a membership level that applies to you and a price tag that matches appropriately.
Memberships grant the account holder access to the digital material appropriate for their membership level, including early access to new products up to a month before they become available in the store. A perfect example is my new book “The Four Corners of Darkness” which will be available in the store at the end of the month but is currently available as an eBook to our upper elementary, middle school, and premier membership levels. New products that arrive during the annual membership cycle are added to the membership at no additional charge to the account holder. Plus, every member has an automatic 15% discount on all products in the store, site wide.
We have many products planned beyond what you can currently see in the store. Many of which will show up in the next few months. More are already on the calendar to debut in the months that will follow. Our inventory will continue to grow but we are committed to maintaining a personal, small-business level of customer service and family atmosphere. We look forward to getting to know you, serving you, and want to start by saying, “Welcome to the Shine-A-Light family!”
