Yaks of the Mountains

Yaks of the Mountains (2006) Post 265

Yaks of the Mountains is a very short (sub 400 word) non-fiction title lavishly illustrated with photographs. It's a companion to Giraffes of the Savannah. I knew very little about yaks, but fortunately the research at this level isn't too difficult. The main problem is digesting all the material down to the word count and level for which it is intended.


Sally is Sally Odgers; author, manuscript assessor, editor, anthologist and reader. She runs and Prints Charming Books. (Sally is me, by the way, and I am lots of other things too, but these are the relevant ones for now.)

The goal for 2017 is to write a post a day profiling the background behind one of my books; how it came to be written, what it's about, and any things of note that happened along the way. If you're an author, an aspiring author, a reader or just someone who enjoys windows into worlds, you might find this fun. The books are not in any special order, but will be assigned approximate dates, and pictures, where they exist. If you enjoyed a post, or want to ask about any of my books or my manuscript assessment service.
