I published a children’s book earlier this year, and I’m giving away the ebook version as the year winds down. The idea for the book came to me while I was working on The Dancing Fish. The illustrations in that poetry book were in gray, and I wondered if a kid’s book done in gray illustrations and plain white backgrounds would work.
And so we have Nobody Will Like This Book.
The ebook is free on Amazon today through Christmas day.
Here’s the description:
Plainly put, this book is worried that nobody will like it. 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 on it. The book has drawings on the inside pages. Some of those drawings are a bit silly, so they can be fun. What’s also fun (and very nice) is when a friendly book comes by and tells this book that being different isn’t bad. Instead, it makes books special.
If you’d like to take a stroll through the book — complete with narration — check out the video. Click here if you’d rather watch it on YouTube.
I hope you enjoy the video and the book!
