I have always wanted to publish a Children’s book incorporating my illustrations. I originally planned on pitching the story to publishing houses but was disheartened by how long and seemingly daunting the process would be. So I decided to publish it using a website that enables you to self-publish, some drawbacks are you have to self promote your butt off to sell copies and the cost of each book is incredibly high compared to what it would be if a big publishing house distributed it for you. That being said I am in Love with my book and think it’s pretty amazing. I am proud of myself for finally putting it together. I am hoping that I sell copies online and also plan to sell it through various baby stores and coffee shops in my community.
So now I’m at the shameless self promotion portion of this blog post…. YOU SHOULD BUY MY BOOK!!!

Not only would you be supporting Art and savvy entrepreneurship … you are also supporting ME and my passion to survive solely on my creative thoughts and dreams. Also if you know of any book stores or children’s/Baby stores that would be a good fit for me or any general tips would be much appreciated. Just send me an email at email@example.com.
