For the past few weeks, I’ve been doing a big thing. I’ve been working on publishing a children’s ebook.
Any of y’all remember when I wrote a little picture book called “Doggie Went A-Courtin'”? Way, way back in maybe 2009? I entered it into a contest and it placed in the top twelve and then went on to win 4th after all my friends, fans, and neighbors voted online day after day after day? Anyone remember? It’s been a while.
Well, after that contest I tried to get it published, but it’s never gone anywhere with traditional publishers. So after Kindle made it possible for children authors to publish ebooks a couple of months ago, I went for it. I’ve worked with an excellent illustrator who practically worked for peanuts and delivered a super product.
Here it is, in all it’s twelve pages of glory.
Its a cute little adaptation on Froggie Went A-Courtin’using a few down home animals.
There’s a couple of catches.
1) It’s only available on Kindle, so you either have to have a Kindle or a free Kindle app downloaded on something smart.
2) It has no reviews and in order for books to do really well out there in the e-world, they need reviews. If you like it, please leave a nice review. If you don’t like it, I’d rather you not leave a review, just go on and scrub your potty or something.
On Saturday, November 22, it will be free!! Grab it up then before the price returns to $2.99.
So buy it, give it a great review, and then finally, spread the word. Share on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or any other social media, send a pigeon, a smoke signal or write it on a bathroom stall next to someone’s number for a good time. It’s all good.
Oh and of course, if you find errors, such as in formatting, please let me know so I can fix it up. This has been a huge learning curve and I know just enough to be dangerous, you know.
