Just to make sure I don’t miss anything, I am going to do what I enjoy doing — make a list. (easier to read, don’t you think?)

  1. We are happy to see that almost all the author bios are in. You can know more about your fellow authors here on this exclusive page where your author bios have been featured.
  2. The deadline for the first prompt “Positivity” for our book project is around the corner — 8 March 2022. May I request those who have not published their stories yet to please do so? Also, email the story to us at dancingelephantspress@gmail.com
  3. Did you get a chance to visit Draft2Digital, the publishing platform we plan to use? If you haven’t yet done so, please do. Get familiar with it and sign up.
  4. Connecting with us: We had mentioned in an earlier post that we plan to have a Zoom meeting to check-in, ask questions, and clarify stuff. Some of you have responded. We also plan to create a Google Doc whose link we’ll share with you shortly so that you can add your comments/concerns there so we can get back to you. Other ways to get in touch with us are Email: dancingelephantspress@gmail.com
