Hey Everyone, I have a great book that was published by Mascot Books, and released on March 3! Unfortunately, the pandemic struck, and life came to a halt. However, this would be a great book for your little ones who are home during the quarantine. Check it out at the Mascot Books Website! Thank you!
Published my second book, ages Pre-K thru, with Mascot and it was a great experience.

Grateful that my newest book, 'Not Yet,' is now available
Happy book birthday (tomorrow) to SKY DRAGON! Congrats!

Hi everyone.
I will try to keep this post short.

I self published a children’s picturebook on Amazon through Createspace a couple years ago.

I had a lot of issues with getting the paperback file right and eventually gave up
on the project.

I now self publish non-fiction medical books and fiction novels successfully therefore I am not looking for a publisher.

My illustrator did a great job with the pictures, but we had a communications gap and I was told the issues were multiple layers in the pictures?

I am trying to get a cost on an illustrator (not necessarily US based), but English as a first language is preferable.

Are there people in this group who specialize in converting children’s picturebook files to various platforms including print and kindle complete with fixing upload issues?

Thanks in advance
Such a fun time launching the second book of the Darlene the Drama Queen series! This time, Darlene tackles the issue of bullying.

Stop, Look and Listen you won't regret it

Extra Innings – A magical story

"'Extra Innings' is a book that may just make you cry. In my case, there were two kind of tears. The first was in watching Fred come so close to losing his battle. The second was from the overwhelming beauty and grace of Fred’s approach to life, in good times and in trying ones."
