UPDRIFT: The direction to which the predominant LONGSHORE movement of BEACH material approaches.
UPRUSH: The rush of water up the FORESHORE following the breaking of a WAVE, also called SWASH or RUN-UP.
Here are all of the details...
UPdrift prints: Chapter books that go against the grain, characters who make a difference.
An updrift is the direction opposite of the predominant movement along a shoreline. UPdrift prints are chapter books geared toward grade and middle school kids. They’re filled with stellar writing, an interesting plot, a problem to solve, and a character who is and who thinks outside of the box to solve that problem. The best books combine story with message. Talk to me, Goose, what’s your message?
UPrush books: Non-fiction books about parenting and motherhood that tell with every fiber of their storytelling being that we don’t have to think the same way to shine under the same sun.
An uprush is the flow of water that occurs when a wave breaks. UPrush books are nonfiction stories of motherhood that stand beautifully alone, but shine when read side-by-side. These books are filled with unique perspectives, experiences, and sometimes advice. They’re how-tos that lift and personal stories that reflect how what makes us unique and different also has the power to bring us closer together. An uprush leaves room for all of us and for our opinions, too. UPrush books—and authors—focus less on what readers think and more on making them think. It’s your story, tell it. I’m listening.
UPdrift and UPrush authors are talented storytellers who love social media and embrace the goodness that can be found within it. What they don’t know, they’re willing to learn. Blogging, Facebook, or Twitter presence is a must. Memoire, advice, how-tos, anthologies all welcome.
