Our Passion for Reading & Writing

Each person that works with DEAR Texas understands the value of a good education, which can only be achieved when a person is able to read and write.  We also know that to have the ability to imagine the world around us, and the world of possibility, helps one to be inspired, to be a part of the continuing course of change.

Through DEAR Texas, it is our desire and goal to get books into more people’s hands so they have the opportunity to grow and to become their own Super Hero.

B. Alan Bourgeois

Director/Founder/Author

B. Alan Bourgeois began writing when he was just a child, but as many children of his era and of the artistic background were told, “You need to study and get a real job to earn a living.” That statement from a well meaning mother put a pause on his desire to write.

In 1989, he was asked to write a short story based on an actual event in his life. He did, and it was published as $200 Alan. Seeing his story in print once again inspired him to begin writing. Since then, Mr. Bourgeois has written many articles, short stories, editorials and has 7 books published covering many genre’s.

Through the process of writing and getting published, Mr. Bourgeois saw a need for additional marketing avenues for Authors that was not covered in the normal channels. While there were a lot of new ‘web’ based social networks for authors, there was nothing that really helped challenged them, and or gave them a way to promote themselves in a way that finds new readers; WeFiction.com is in the process of being that new marketing tool.

In addition, Mr. Bourgeois saw a special niche market for Texas Authors; Texas Assoc. of Authors was thus created to highlight the estimated 1,000 Texas Authors that write on a wide range of subject matter. TAA does this through seminars, their on line book store, and traveling around the state with the TAA ‘pop up’ store.

Mr. Bourgeois continues to write when he can, and assist new authors through his company Bourgeois Media & Consulting (BMC). He finds great joy in helping authors work through the various steps and processes needed to get their book(s) published. “There is nothing greater than seeing someone’s dreams become reality,” he says.span>
