iUniverse Carl Rollyson shows how to reach your readers
“Perhaps my most gratifying experience as an iUniverse author has been the response to my children’s biography of Marie Curie. This book was originally written for a publisher who went out of business. I was able to acquire the rights for the book and to publish it through iUniverse. More than most of my other books, I felt Marie Curie: Honesty in Science could reach a large audience. She is such a famous figure and reading about her is such a wonderful way to introduce young people to science and to the lives of scientists who make exciting and life enhancing discoveries. As part of the original series, I was obliged to include sections like “points to ponder” and suggestions for parents who might want to help their children with their reading. It suddenly occurred to me that what I had written was in fact a biography for home schoolers.
