Well, I am so close to being published that I can almost smell the glue. Yesterday I sent in my inside galley corrections, so it is just a matter of time before the product is finished. What am I talking about? Well my children's book, of course. No, this one does not rhyme, but I did draw all of the illustrations myself. The story is about twin brothers. One is an Octopus and the other is a Wolf dog. It is a wonderful heartfelt story filled with action, danger, and brotherly love. "Underwater Adventures of Wolf dog and Octopus" is my first venture into publishing. I am self publishing it through Author house. If any of you writers out there are interested in checking them out you can log on to their website at http://www.authorhouse.com/ They have really made the self publishing process easy. Most of it has been completed by either email or fax, and they are very quick to answer all of my questions. So far, I am only out about $800 for the process, so they are relatively affordable. I guesstimate that I will probably have about $1200-$1500 invested in the finishing product. I will be sure to keep all of you informed about the process of the book, and for sure once it hits the store shelves. It will be sold on Amazon and Barns and Noble and several other chain retailers. You will even be able to purchase it through Author house. So keep your eyes peeled for further details, and I will thank you all for you support. Oh yeah, Nathan and Forrest will thank you too. After all, It was there college fund I spent to get the book published.
