In these times of the new normal, where we try to stay safe and life has changed in so many ways, we are hoping to go out into the new normal and do some book signings and author meet & greets…safely!
As we wait patiently to do so, we hope we receive new young readers who haven’t yet seen our book to purchase it online at either, friesenpress.com, Amazon, Chapters/Indigo, Barnes & Noble and other ebook sites!
I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy and let’s hope that we can continue to get to a place where we can get together safely soon!!
With so much going on with Black Lives Matter and protests, I am reminded again of why I wrote this children’s book in the first place!
With the help of Bugsy & Taz we show children that if a dog and cat can get along and be the best of friends, even though they are so very different, than so can we! Through patience and understanding these two beautiful furry souls have an amazing bond that can teach children to do the very same thing!
If you haven’t got a copy for your young reader please click on one of the links at the top of the website to where to you can purchase the book!
I am very happy to say that my site is back up and running after suffering its own little “viral” glitch! In the world of uncertainty at this moment, with CoVid-19, we are all experiencing the interruption of normality and I am hoping everyone is remaining safe and healthy through it!
I can now continue to keep up my site, after my brilliant husband, who is a whiz on coding and that he does this for a living, I am grateful for his help in this matter! He is my vaccine to my site problem! 😝
On March 15th, 2018, I received a call from my editor at FriesenPress to discuss the beginning of my dream come true! I wanted to write a children’s book about loving someone even if they were different! I also had a dream of where I wanted to take this after the book was released, which was July 25th, 2019!
I envisioned having the little extras, that children could have along with the book! Stickers, colouring pages, fridge magnets, pens, notebooks, shirts, etc! A little franchise, a small empire to be exact!
With the help of a video that was included in my package, the author of “The Wealthy Barber”, the Chilton method expressed on that very video to see your book as a small business! Marketing was key and strategy was important! Having worked retail most of my life, as a manager I had to ensure sales were good and how to market the product!
This helped me in so many ways with the journey of getting my book out there! What would make me different, stand out and catch both adult’s and children’s attention!
I am proud today of how far I have come, how much hard work I have put into this and how much pounding the pavement as well as social media presence is necessary to succeed in this book adventure!
If you are willing to work hard for what you want, you can achieve it!
