It is with such amazement and pride that I announce I am officially an Indie Published Author of my first book, “Goodnight, Little Grubb”. As you may remember from a blog post last month, I have been working for the past year on a children’s picture book for my cousin’s first birthday. I had originally had the publication date set to November 15th, 2020 — as a way of ensuring she got her signed copy first — but she got it a bit sooner than expected and I can officially share the news!
I can’t put into words how it felt to have my book arrive, to hold something I created and published in my hands. For so many years I had dreamed of just that moment. I’m not ashamed to say I cried (happy tears) and didn’t want to put the book down. I planned to keep the novel publication a secret until the 15th, but I was too excited to share, as were the other people who knew and had been keeping it a secret.
“Goodnight, Little Grubb” will be my first official publication as an Indie Author. I published through Amazon, and I’m so glad I did. Amazon KDP made it so easy to put everything in and get it formatted just right, especially when I had some strange white border around each page (but not anymore!). I’m so happy with how it turned out!
You can now order your own copy of “Goodnight, Little Grubb” through Amazon today!
