Well-Trained Mind Community, We are excited to announce that beloved storyteller Jim Weiss has joined Peace Hill Press! Here is a letter from Susan Wise Bauer with more details: All of us at Peace Hill Press are absolutely delighted that Jim Weiss has chosen us to carry on with the publication of his award-winning and much-loved stories. Jim and Randy have been my friends since we first started running into each other at home education conferences, over a decade ago. Weâ€™ve shared our meals, our homes, our stories about our kids, our frustrations, and our creative hopes with each other. My four children (the oldest is now twenty-three!) grew up with Jimâ€™s stories; in fact, I once had Jimâ€™s voice on my answering machine saying â€œHello, Bauers!â€ for months because he called and left a message, and the boys wouldnâ€™t let me erase it. My youngest daughter, now fourteen, still falls asleep with Sweet Dreams and Good Night after a tough day. When Jim recorded the Story of the World series for us, our friendship became a professional relationship. And that professional relationship has now taken on a new dimension. By publishing, selling, and promoting Jimâ€™s work, weâ€™ll be opening up a space for him to do even more storytelling. Weâ€™re going to take on the burden of the business side of his operation so that his creative side can be set free! Jim is looking forward to creating new stories every year for Peace Hill Press, and we canâ€™t wait to bring those recordings to you. For the latest and greatest news about what Jimâ€™s up to (teaser: it wonâ€™t just be audio CDs!), please consider signing up for Peace Hill Pressâ€™s email notification list. Visit peacehillpress.com. Weâ€™ll never spam you. Weâ€™ll just let you know what wonderful things Jimâ€™s working on!
