Michael Dadich

Michael first began writing when he set pencil to steno pad at age 8. A year later, he began developing the world of his series, and even created its title, “The Silver Sphere.” With the support of years of experience, those early maps and back stories progressed into what he hoped was a fresh and entertaining take on the classic young adult fantasy adventure. [We think he succeeded brilliantly.]

Despite Michael’s frequent escapes into parallel worlds, he rooted himself firmly in his very real family and community. When not pacing the yard maniacally after every few pages of writing, he spent as much time as possible hanging out with his son Jax and his inspirational wife Jenna. He also coached several local youth sports teams in Beverly Hills, and alternated between yelling at his two crazy Corgis and hiking with his trained German Shepherd.

Sadly, Michael passed away on June 22, 2020. Although he didn’t complete his vision of the full “The Silver Sphere” series, we think the first book offers an entertaining sojourn into the final frontier, and may well stand as a classic. Hey… just look at all the awards it won!

Announcement: Evolved Publishing Street Team Launches Today

Have you just read a great book and now you want to tell the world about it? Maybe you love the work of a particular author and wish more people would check out her books.

Well, now there’s a way you can help. Plus, as a dedicated fan, there are perks in it for you, too!

Thanks to the wonder of the Internet, you can now interact with other fans, with your favorite author, and with readers the world-over. We know, isn’t the Internet fabulous? The newest social media marketing trend is the “Street Team.”

As a member of the team, you’ll receive the exclusive benefits listed below….

Benefits for Street Team Members

  • Advance copies of upcoming books
  • Inside scoop—be in the know before everyone else
  • Personal interaction with the author
  • Prizes
  • Giveaways
  • Custom swag
  • Blog content
  • A fancy member badge

The Rules

We want to keep this forum fun and non-invasive, so we ask just a couple things from you:

  • Please do not use profanity in this forum.
  • Please do not spam our members with links to books from outside Evolved Publishing. This is about readers connecting with the EP team. Please set up your own forum for your own work.
  • Please keep it positive, and let’s have some fun.
  • All violators will be subjected to a continuous loop of Pee Wee Herman movies.

How Your Participation Helps

Sometimes writing can be a very lonely road. A supportive group of readers turns a solitary activity into a group one, making it that much more fun for everyone involved. While your enthusiastic presence is great for the author’s soul, there are a number of other simple things you can do to help tell new readers about all the wonderful books by your favorite author, and therefore help her sell more! How cool is that?

Once you join the Street Team, you’ll find a list of instructions on how you can do little things to help in a big way. Do them all, or do just one or two. Either way, you’re spreading the word and also spreading the love. Periodically, the Street Team leader will send group shout-outs to pinpoint one of these methods of helping. You know what else? These tasks serve as a crash course in Social Media 401 (that’s advanced social media, y’all). Sometimes these tasks will also be tied to giveaways that are for team members only.

So in summary, performing these small tasks helps your favorite author find new readers, introduces readers to books you love, and could win you a prize. ALL RIGHT!
The More, The Merrier

Yes, it’s true. This Street Team doesn’t just celebrate the work of a single author, but rather all our authors at Evolved Publishing. A fan of one of our authors? We bet you’ll find someone new who tickles your fancy—hey, aren’t we always on the lookout for the next great read? More authors mean more giveaways, more activities, and more awesomeness all around. Excuse our 80′s slang, but that’s a totally rad deal!

How To Join

Joining the awesomeness that is this team is easy. Just head on over to Facebook, and request to join the group called “Evolved Street Team.” Here’s the direct link.

Once you’re in, click over to grab the Street Team Member badge from the “photos” tab, and add it to your blog, linking back to The Street Team Page. You can also grab the html code for this badge directly from the aforementioned link if that is easier.

Those “how to help” documents we mentioned can be found under the “files” tab.

Don’t forget to check the “events” tab and to introduce yourself to the other members!
