I spent several hours learning how to format my previously published books into Kindle versions. One of these is When The Butterflies Flew Away, a novel about the work of art teacher Freidl Brandeis and the children she taught while in the concentration camp Terezin. Brandeis is one of my personal heroes. She went to Terzin with her suitcase full of art supplies with the goal of using art as therapy for the children there. She taught the children to draw and she encouraged them to write, poetry and journals. Brandeis kept all the drawings and writings in an old suitcase, which was left behind when she was deported to Auschwitz. Many of the children and brandeis herself did not survive, but the artwork did. My story is geared to younger readers, but I have been told that it trancends age and has appeal to anyone who is interested in reading about The Holocaust, making a difference or inspiring others. Just days on the Kindle market, it is in the Top 25 Holocaust related books. I am in good company, sharing the list with books by Holocaust survivors, The Book Theif ( a favorite of mine) and Lowis Lowery's Number The Stars.
Here's the link to the first book I;ve had that high in the rankings. Check it out for yourself. http://www.amazon.com/When-Butterflies-Flew-Away-ebook/dp/B007JN8K0...
