And now, Ladies & Gentlemen, is the moment we have all been waiting for! Well, you may not have been waiting as anxiously as I have, but I have been waiting, anxiously, on the edge of my seat, with great anticipation. My first children's book, Amazing Animals by Design, is published and available for purchase!
The road to this moment has been fun, and I hope to repeat it with other books in the future. If you have thought about writing a book or getting one published and are curious about the process, check out my other blog at http://www.amazingbydesign.blogspot.com. I've taken my readers through the whole process, from choosing a publisher until today, the day my book is available for sale!
Amazing Animals by Design is a storybook written to introduce the concept of Intelligent Design to young children. Illustrated by Jesse Blythe DeFriese, it shows children some familiar and some not-so-familiar animals while explaining that different animals were designed with different characteristics to help them to live in their environment.
Amazing Animals by Design is available now in paperback at Tate Publishing for $8.99. The official release date for national retailers is April 3. After the official release, it will be available from Amazon and national retailers like Books-A-Million and Barnes & Noble. I will be doing book signings at those places then. Until then, I will be doing local book-signings and pre-release events, getting the word out! The audio book and official website will be ready closer to the release date. I will be posting a schedule of book signings on the Amazing By Design blog!
I will give away one free PDF version of the book from each blog. If you are interested, please leave a comment below to enter the drawing! I will draw one name on Friday, February 3.
Have a great day!
