Steve Ford, the author of Keys to Inspiration, A Teacher’s Guide to a Student-Centered Writing Program, introduced his book to the world on KARE TV Minneapolis' 4 p.m. newscast on Mar. 12, and officially launched it at Common Good Books in St. Paul on Mar. 18.
In Keys to Inspiration, which was recently published by education publisher Rowman & Littlefield, the author shares lesson plans divided into three sections. Let’s Write! shows teachers how to introduce students to their natural source of inspiration—emotion—and provides them with complete plans for many unique exercises and small projects. The Major Projects section includes persuasive essay, editorial writing and cartooning, research writing, debate, and oral presentation. Section three, Mechanics, reveals common student mistakes; explains rules of grammar, punctuation, and spelling; and serves as a handy teacher reference. The book finishes with an extensive Appendix of lists—spelling lists, emotion-related lists, powerful verbs, and more, that can be downloaded and used in the classroom.

One of the best tools to promote a book to potential commercial buyers, namely bookstores and libraries, is getting a favorable professional review, and congratulations go out to Mark Ristau, author, A Hero Dreams. Midwest Book Review has offered a favorable review of his debut novel. Here it is: "An inspiring tale of hope, faith, courage, and profound self-discovery, 'A Hero Dreams' is unreservedly recommended for personal reading lists, as well as community library Contemporary General Fiction collections."
A great review isn't all Ristau has to celebrate this month. He just learned his book has been named a finalist for a Benjamin Franklin Award in the category of Popular Fiction. The Benjamin Franklin is one of the most prestigious awards for independently published fiction.
