    Josephine And The Missing Necklace = Available Now!

    Josephine and The Missing Necklace  is available now! Finally got the second book printed! Just in time to surprise the birthday girl, my niece, with her book namesake. (Josephine) I am happy to report she was very excited about it and I already have requests in for a new series based on her sister. I keep saying I’m going to write that “novel” someday, but for now I am enjoying making these short children’s books for the kids to enjoy.

    I self published, my very first children’s book! I am so excited about it. It has been on my mind for a long time, and then last night, I just finally got into the swing of things and was able to finalize it.

This time around I used Adobe Illustrator, and without a lot of instruction plowed through by using the most basic of tools.

    Pirate Steve Gets A Crew (Vol 1)

    So I finished my 3rd book, which is the start of a series I plan to do called The Adventures of Pirate Steve. Volume 1 is called Pirate Steve Gets A Crew and is longer than my two other books making it for an older reader. So I placed this one for second graders, although, I might adjust the readership level later depending on the feedback I get. I spent a lot more time on this book and I am quite proud of it! I hope the kiddos enjoy!
