I have today ordered the proofs of the story so it should be available as Print on Demand as well the Kindle app and tablet. Later today I will load the pdf version onto our website Junagarh Media
I hope that some of you like the story I will be giving a percentage of earnings away to any good causes that buyers request.
I have received notification from Amazon KDP that my story is now available for sale on their platform. Now I just need to convert it to pdf and Print on Demand versions.
After completely reading through the story twice today and making all the editing changes I have at last loaded up the kindle version onto the Amazon KDP platform. Now for the pdf and Print on Demand versions.
This is a story I wrote and published in 2018 for children between 4 and 8 years old. It is available on the Kindle and devices that run the Kindle app. It is also available as an A4 story and colouring in Print on Demand book from Amazon. In the Print on Demand version and also the pdf available from Junagarh Media for PCs/MACs and tablets that can read pdf files all the illustrations are repeated at the end of the book for colouring in.
This is the synopsis:
Read all about how Clever Dad builds his son Tristan a rocket that he soon finds himself blasting off in, on a journey to the moon. His adventure is aided by the ship’s computer who teaches Tristan some facts about space travel and informs him of the mission to survey the moon for possible landing sites.
They discuss whether the moon is made of cheese because back home there is a cheese shortage as some of the cows seem to have gone missing. On the way to the moon they overtake a cow and find out why, as in the old nursery rhyme, it decided to jump over the moon.
The cow was not alone and Tristan and the rocket’s computer discover that none of the cows that decide to jump ever come back. Tristan decides with the help of the computer to find out why the cows are mysteriously disappearing.
This is the second story that I published with the KDP platform. It is available for Kindle and devices running the Kindle application. It is also available for PCs/MACs and tablet with a pdf reader from Junagarh Media.
This is the synopsis of the story:
Basil the brown bear has a dream; he wants to go Dizzyland, an amusement park that he has read about in the newspaper. Getting there will be difficult as getting out of the zoo will not be the easiest of things to do. What he needs is a disguise so that people do not recognise him as a bear but as a person.
An idea springs to mind one day when a hat is blown into his cage. All he needs are some other items and what comes along next is just what he needs. It is the facemask of a famous person. The only problem is that he has to cut the nose of the mask off; otherwise it will not fit over his big nose. All set, one day he borrows his keeper’s coat and makes his way out into the world beyond the zoo.
It is a strange place, made even more so by the fact that most of the people do not seem to understand his English which he has practised speaking for many years. And the fact that people keep recognising him as someone famous, but keep thinking that the nose is wrong. Some of them find his paws hairy but this does not stop him from searching for the magical Dizzyland.
Clever Dad and the Pirate Ship was the first of my books that I published with the Amazon KDP platform.
Clever Dad builds a pirate ship, so that his son Tristan can sail the seven seas on the promise that he will be a good pirate. Tristan is captivated once the ship is complete and his father starts to tell him a story but he, using his imagination drifts off in his own tale of the high seas.
Once sailing along he meets different characters, the first of which is the Easterly wind that suggests he goes to Polysneezia, a pleasant island that the wind will help him reach.
He lets the wind take him in the direction of the island and he relaxes until he meets a group of flying fish who tell him not to go there because of pirates digging for treasure. He is told that they are digging so many holes that the island might sink. Horrified, he asks the advice of the Easterly wind and decides that he must try to help even though has been warned by the flying fishes.
Tristan encounters other characters on his way to Polysneezia that give him their opinion on whether to continue or not. Knowing that the island is in trouble he presses on determined to help. Will Tristan be able to save the island from the dastardly pirates.
Available from Amazon for the Kindle and devices that run the application. Also available from them as an A4 story and colouring in book. A pdf version is available for PCs/MACs and tablets with a pdf reader from Junagarh Media
My book, “Brown Bear’s Big Day Out” has finally been published on Kindle and is also available as an A4 story and colouring in book from Amazon using their Print on Demand service. You can also buy a pdf version that will work on any PC/MAC or tablet that has a pdf reader installed. This version is available from Junagarh Media. When the book came out I started to promote it in the wonderful Hyde Park in central London.
Publishing on the Amazon KDP platform is easy and has allowed me to publish three stories for young children.
The Amazon KDP platform is quite amazing. I was made redundant earlier in 2018 and in the time since then I have been able to finish off three of my stories. Not only will they run on the Kindle and devices that run the Kindle application but Amazon has an excellent Print on Demand service. This has allowed me to create A4 story and colouring in books that can fully use the b&w line drawings both within the text and at the end of the story. The titles of these stories are:
Clever Dad and the Pirate Ship
Brown Bear’s Big Day Out
Clever Dad and the Space Rocket
I’m now working on a story called Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow and hope to be able to publish it shortly.
