The frustrations of being a writer

Silent Spring book

There are so many of us now. That’s the wonderful aspect of technology allowing so many more people to be able to create. The Amazon KDP publishing platform allows us to hold a single copy of our printed book. Before the platform existed we would have had to print a large number of books making it impossible for many people.

The success of this method of publishing is fine if you have a large social media following but if you don’t how do you become noticed? I have been contacting beekeeping groups of Facebook and one woman wrote back saying that Busy Bee and the Silent Spring was beautifully written and that she was utterly captivated by it. She added that she would buy the book for her niece. Wonderful words and very inspiring but how do I turn them into multiple sales?

There is also this balance to be considered. How much time do I spend on promoting what I have already written compared to putting down new stories and ideas? Oh well I guess that I will have to keep on slogging away.

Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow

Another day of reading and editing

I’m getting close to finishing Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow. It has taken far longer than I had hoped but it is at a point where I have done all I can with it. Hopefully, at least the Kindle version will be available this weekend.Twitter image with story title

Clever Dad and the Space Rocket

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.
