After a lot of hard work and gallons of strong coffee, my first children’s book, Gretta Knows: a little girl with a BIG imagination, is up and running on amazon and I couldn’t be happier.
My earlier post really said it all. As soon as I pushed that publish button (and then rechecked it numerous times for errors), it really felt like a huge weight had been lifted from my shoulders. All of the setting up…that was a real process! Setting up a website, setting up mail chimp, setting up a landing page for anyone that wants to follow the link in the book to a bunch of freebies (some examples are in the image at the top of this post by the way)…setting up an author page on amazon….and so on and so on.
But – after all of that has been completed and I’ve figured out how to jump through many a hoop in the publishing process, I really believe that the next book will be a heck of a lot easier and a lot of the heavy lifting was finished with the first book.
Speaking of my next children’s book. I’m working on it right now. It’ll be short. Why? Well, because, it’ll be free! Permanently free! And, not only will it be free, but it will have freebies as well. Just like the first book! I might keep something like that as a theme through all the books. We’ll see. Stay tuned.
I’ll be posting again soon with more updates. Thanks for reading!
