Where's Pumpkin is finally printed and available. I'm excited about this wonderful new book for many reasons. It's a book that anyone at any age can enjoy. Debbi has again outdone herself with the illustrations. She has even captured the little expressions pumpkin has. (If you think a dog doesn't have expressions you have never met Pumpkin!)
I am also pleased that the Cincinnati SPCA has endorsed the book. They became a big part of Pumpkin's life when they rescued her from a life on the streets. I am also popping my buttons about my new publisher. It's ME!
Self publishing has as many cons and it has pros but I want to try it. I think it will work just fine for us. With the Print on Demand publishers I have been using it is almost impossible to get a book on a bookstore shelf for several reasons. Mainly there is no return privilege if the book doesn't sell and no shop owner can afford to keep merchandise that doesn't sell.
Now that I am the publisher I can accept returns after a fair marketing effort has been made. I can also offer the book on consignment to small shops so they can diversify without extra expense.
I am looking forward to this new area for my writing business. I'll keep you informed in future blogs.
