Subject: Utah School Literacy & Chance Fortune

Dear Educator,

First, let me commend you on the great job you’re doing! As the son of two teachers, I know the many trials, tribulations, and triumphs educators go through each and every day.

I am writing to respectfully request that you consider my novels (published by Starscape, the children’s/young adult division of TOR/St. Martin’s Press), CHANCE FORTUNE AND THE OUTLAWS and CHANCE FORTUNE IN THE SHADOW ZONE, for your classroom studies and/or reading lists (grades 5 and up).

The first volume of the series, CHANCE FORTUNE AND THE OUTLAWS, is an official selection of the New York Public Library’s Books for the Teen Age, the Texas Lone Star Reading List, and Renaissance Learning’s Accelerated Reader Program (see AR ranking information below). Volume two, CHANCE FORTUNE IN THE SHADOW ZONE, releases in stores across North America on October 28, 2008.

I have attached a PDF Overview of the books along with PDF Educator Guides for your review. Additional free classroom materials may be found on my website, www.shaneberryhill.com<http://www.shaneberryhill.com/>, under the ‘students and teachers’ section. Please feel free to share these materials with your fellow educators, librarians, and administrators.

Thanks for your time and consideration. If I may ever serve any of your schools’ literacy programs, do not hesitate to contact me.

Keep up the good work!

Sincerely,

Shane Berryhill
