What a Wonderful World!

Setting up!

What a wonderful experience!!! Yesterday’s book signing at Indigo Innes Road was a huge success, with copies sold and meeting amazing people!

The store was very welcoming, the staff were incredible and 4 hours flew by with much excitement!

I was both nervous and excited for the day but after a few minutes I settled in quite nicely and enjoyed it tremendously!

My husband, Chris, has been a tremendous support, cheering me on and letting me know how proud he was of me. This just makes the whole experience that more amazing! My brother, Greg, who has been cheering me on all my life, came by once again to make sure my day started out with a positive vibe. He was truly impressed with the whole set up and expressed how proud of his big sister he was! Having some family and friends stop by to pick up their copy was truly a deep appreciated feeling of support and gratitude! I am very blessed with a remarkable support system!

The children who bought the book fell in love with the pictures and some even read the story at the table to my delight, fell in love with the story as well. To hear a child read your story is an incredible feeling! To hear them say I really liked your story is an even greater reward! For me there is no more honest critic than a child! The adults who bought the book were impressed with the photography and the story as well immediately knowing who would enjoy the book!

All in all, with the first signing of a mini tour I have in the next month, went very well and I am ready to soak in more success as it comes! My dream just keeps growing and growing and I will enjoy every detail as it unfolds!

World of dreams around the corner!

Little World Empire

My World Vision
Little Empire

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!
