This booklet is all about my experiences on the long journey of publishing my picture book series and becoming a best-selling author on Amazon. It is not about how to write your story but how to get it ready and publish it.
Here is a review ByWhistlers MomTOP 500 REVIEWERon March 20, 2016
I got hooked on the Oliver & Jumpy series, which are some of the most creative and entertaining children's books I've ever read. I love the glorious illustrations and I admire the author's exuberant, daring style. These are NOT your typical, tame kiddie lit books.
So I was interested to read the author's account of how he launched his successful series. I think the key is that he approached the task with creative energy, but also with the knowledge and savvy of a businessman. He realized upfront what many authors learn slowly and painfully - a writer must be a marketer also. I don't think this is a new idea. I've read that Shakespeare's success was built on his skill and hard work in developing a market for his plays and finding backing for them. Art does not exist in a vacuum and never has.
This little book gives you a lot of bang for the buck because it's based on experience, not theory. If you're a writer (or want to be) you should read (and re-read) his suggestions and advice. Knowing the score before you publish could save you a lot of heart-ache and money. And if you're interested in the fascinating new world of e-publishing, this is a great inside look into how it works. I read it twice and enjoyed every word.
