Deb: It's Back! The Alaska Sampler 2015

49 Writers - Mon, 04/06/2015 - 5:00am


As cuts to the state’s film subsidy program threaten the booming reality TV industry, what will be the next big draw to Alaska?
Books, of course. At least that’s what the editors at the Running Fox authors’ co-op are counting on.
Following the success of last year’s Alaska Sampler, a free e-book anthology, Running Fox is at it again, with a new volume of the Sampler plus a brand new website that aims to change the way readers connect with Alaska-inspired authors and books.
“In their reviews, readers of last year’s Sampler spoke of how they read specifically to prepare for their Alaska vacations, and they urged us to issue a fresh volume each year. How could we refuse?” says Deb Vanasse, co-editor of the Sampler and founder of Running Fox Books. 
Alaskans, too, praised the collection. "Laughter and tears brought to you by my most beloved state," wrote one reviewer. "Thanks to the multitalented for sharing. A real treat."
In what lead editor David Marusek deems a “literary labor of love,” the Alaska Sampler 2015features fiction, memoir, crime writing, and humor.  Among the dozen featured authors are new favorites alongside the well-recognized, including Heather Lende (If You Lived Here, I’d Know Your Name), C.B. Bernard (Chasing Alaska), Rich Chiappone (Opening Days), and Gerri Brightwell (Cold Country).
Aiming to move beyond the either-or thinking about e-books and print books, the Sampler relies on a unique partnership with brick-and-mortar bookshops in Homer, Palmer, Skagway, and Ketchikan.
Readers can download the Alaska Sampler 2015 for free at www.runningfoxbooks.com, Alaska’s only author-curated online bookshop, enticing readers with features such as the Passage Picker, Book Your Trip (Literally), and Author Confessions. 

In a few months, Running Fox will be looking to add a few new authors to the co-op, designed to aggregate marketing efforts by promoting uniquely Alaskan ways for readers to connect with our books. Stay tuned for details!
Co-founder of 49 Writers and founder of the independent authors cooperative Running Fox Books, Deb Vanasse has authored sixteen books. Her most recent are Write Your Best Book, a practical guide to writing books that rise above the rest; What Every Author Should Know, a comprehensive guide to book publishing and promotion; and Cold Spell, a novel that “captures the harsh beauty of the terrain as well as the strain of self-doubt and complicated family bonds,” according to Booklist. Deb lives and works on Hiland Mountain outside of Anchorage, Alaska, and at a cabin near the Matanuska Glacier. A regular contributor to the IBPA Independent, the views expressed here are her own.

School District Report on Investigation into Hazing

Juneau School District Announcements - Wed, 08/27/2014 - 4:35pm

The Juneau School District has concluded our investigation into allegations that on or about May 30-31 of this year a group of incoming senior boys hazed/initiated a group of incoming freshmen boys by paddling them multiple times.

These events were first brought to our attention in early June. At that time the district began an initial investigation, which, due to an active police investigation and summer vacation, was put on hold. When we were informed that the police had concluded their investigation we resumed our efforts.
