Nobody Will Like This Book

Front cover of Nobody Will Like This Book. It has only gray text on a white background.

My latest book is in the world, like a little bird flying from the nest and exploring the world on its own. This is my first time putting together a children’s book, and its called Nobody Will Like This Book.

(Yeah, it’s a sad title. Kind of like B.B. King singing, “Nobody Loves Me But My Mother.”)

But please don’t throw the book a dismissive wave because of the sad title. There’s hope shining on the horizon, after we get through a metaphorical mucky marsh.

Indeed, this book thinks nobody will like it. The reasons: This book has seen other books with beautiful pictures and colors on their covers. And some other books have pictures and colors on their inside pages.

In contrast, this book has only grays. And some pages don’t have a logical sense why they’re next to each other. The book has many drawings on the inside pages. Some of the drawings are silly, such as a ladybug playing a xylophone.

The bookโ€™s outlook changes when a friendly book comes by and explains that being different isnโ€™t bad. Instead, it makes books special.

This book is available at Amazon as an ebook for Kindle and as a paperback (it’s sized 8.5″ x 8.5″ and has 56 pages and is printed just with black ink).

Some of the page spreads…

text on a page: This book thinks nobody will like it.
text on one page: Why? Because this book's words have scratches on them. Text on next page: But that is not the only reason.
A page will silly words on it. For example: Sagurp, Goopfernicken, Quazil, and Lobump
A page spread of an illustration of trees. Three birds and a squirrel are on the trees. Two butterflies and a bee fly around.

    1. Thanks! I have hesitated about an ebook because I would want it to look exactly like the printed book. I’ve only worked with plain text for ebooks so far. Was it tricky to create the ebooks for your Mr. Donut books?

        1. Hi Andrea, after a couple tries, I created an ebook that looks to follow the paperback’s layout. I downloaded the app called Kindle Create, and that seems to have worked. So the ebook is now available. You made a good point about shipping costs from other countries, so hopefully this is a better option for some readers.

          With your books, did you create the layout in Microsoft Word first, then make an ebook?

        2. You might as well change the title to โ€œEVERYONE will like this bookโ€! It was wonderful and hits home!
          Iโ€™d be happy if your previous and future books would be in this format as well. Denmark doesnโ€™t have an Amazon location so ordering on there is always a bit of a hassle.

          I did use word first and then converted it to pdf and uploaded that one Kinle Create. But I guess I will have to play it some more because I like the way your layout looks. I do know there is also a Kindle Create version specifically for Children books. I need to look into that as well.

        3. Thank you very much for your kind words ๐Ÿ™‚ All but one of my books are also in ebooks. And since the kid’s book worked out as an ebook, I’ll look into converting my book of poems and drawings into an ebook, too.

          You might want to try uploading your PDF to Amazon to create a paperback version of your books. You can preview the layout and see how it looks. Good luck!

        1. That works for me. Maybe we could answer the same questions, so blog readers could see our different answers. What do you think? Also, there can be specific questions, such as I’m curious how your study of Russian literature has affected your writing. My address is davewilliamswriter (at) gmail.com.
