For a great many years, the sharing of stories, mythology, fables and legends has helped to create and maintain the unique cultures all over the world. Over time, these stories have been passed down from grandparents to parents to children, and this has always been an important way to preserve culture and heritage. We can see very early evidence of this in rock paintings by indigenous people around the world. Effectively, fairy tales and nursery rhymes serve the same purpose.
As time goes on, new stories and memories continue to be created. This is often true when a family leaves their country of origin and move elsewhere in the world. Their children are brought up as "locals" and can sadly lose the essence of the own culture and heritage. Whilst integrating into your new homeland and the local culture is important, it is just as important for your kids to have some kind of connection to their country of origin; be it by birth or family heritage.
Many authors have decided to start looking into Affordable Book Publishing as a means of keeping their culture alive, and sharing it with their family, children, grandchildren, and anyone else either from that country or interested in learning more about it. An Affordable Book Publishing Service, together with Global Book and Ebook Distribution, guarantees that the important story of your culture will become a reality. Traditional publishers tend to have a pre-planned list of the sort of titles they are interested in (usually those that have already proven to be best sellers), and a book sharing a sweet Scandinavian fairy story may not capture their interest
Global Book and EBook Distribution means your book will be available to ex-pats of your culture all over the world, and Print On Demand Australia saves you from spending hundreds of dollars upfront to order books that may take time to sell. Print on Demand prints literally for each order. Bearing in mind that preferences have changed: rather than a hard copy book, many prefer Professional Quality Ebooks so make sure the Affordable Book Publishing service you decide to engage offers that service too (like we do, here at Publicious.)
Even if your desire to share the story of your culture for the purpose of your (future) children and grandchildren is a passion close to your heart, the whole process can feel overwhelming. A great supportive self-publisher will remove the stress by looking after the entire process for you, from Book Typesetting and creating a striking Book Cover Design, to Copyediting and Proofreading. Book Marketing to help you promote your masterpiece.
There is often little room in the school curriculum to focus on sharing stories and culture with children, so the onus on discovering culture outside of the classroom rests more on families now than ever before.For advice on how to engage your kids with cultural myths, stories and language, feel free to contact Publicious author Melina Mallos http://www.catchthatcat.com/contact-us
